His vision was only getting worse and worse, and after a morning at the doctors hearing nothing but bad news, he'd had to resist the temptation of just going home and hiding under the covers. Instead he'd gone to meet some American director at Stanley's urging. The man apparently wanted to make a film based on Reap, Fin's well received play, and though Fin wasn't sure how it would work, he'd agreed to have lunch and chat about it. 

They'd lunched at The Ivy, and were now back at the man's hotel room, chatting about who Fin would most like to see play the lead role. In jest he told the man he'd only ever pictured himself in the role, causing the American to laugh and rest his hand on Fin's knee.

"I like your ambition," the director said, his hand creeping just a bit too high as he spoke.

"It's not ambition, it's just-"

But the man cut him off, kissing him- Much to Fin's surprise. The man wasn't aggressive, but he was certainly forward, and it took more effort than Fin was comfortable with to convince him to stop.

"Oh come on," the American laughed. "You ask for a lead role and then balk at a little heavy petting? I don't buy for a moment that you're that clueless- Or that innocent. You think I haven't been following your little media circus?"

Fin was on his feet, fixing his clothes, but he frowned at that. "What do you mean?" he asked.

"Oh, please. Come on. You're letting them make some cheep TV flick about your abduction. One week you're blind, the next week you can see a bit. How much of that shit's even real? You even blind at all?" he laughed, reaching for Fin's sunglasses, then snatching him off his face with a chuckle.

"Please give them back," Fin said softly, holding out his hand and fighting to keep his calm.

"Take 'em, they're right here, sweetheart," the American replied.

Fin squinted, but the world was just shadows and blurred light today. He couldn't even be sure where the man was standing now. "Keep them," he muttered, turning away and unfolding his can as he let himself out the room and made his way back down to street level.

His breath hitched slightly as he started to walk, and though he was usually careful he was moving a bit too quickly. Even with his cane out, he wasn't very focused, and after nearly walking into traffic once, and a postbox, he managed to crash right into someone.

"Oi, wot-chit, yeah?" the man said, annoyed, but taking a moment to hand Fin his cane back.

"You watch it!" Fin snapped.

"Fucking celebrities think they own this fucking town," a woman muttered, and Fin's cheeks went red as he rushed to the corner and tried to hail a cab.

Jack was heading back to his rig after having made contact with an alien who ran a bar down the way. She didn't hurt anyone and paid her taxes so Torchwood let he be- though they kept an eye on her.

"Hey, give the guy a break," he said, clearly american by accent, and he moved in. "Hi Fin. It's Jack. Harkness," he said. "Let's get you out of here."

Jack put his arm around FIn's shoulders and guided him across the street and down a bit.

"Don't worry about a cab. I'll give you a ride before the paps get wind of you," he said. "Just tell me where you need to go."

He opened the door for the man to get in.

"I don't have to take you home. Would you like to get a drink? We can go to the other side of the city, find some dark little pub. Hide," Jack offered. "You can unload on me because you look like you need to tell someone something."

Jack got in the driver's seat and hit the lights but not the siren. It helped cut through the city traffic as he headed out of the crush of tall buildings and into the more gridded streets far from the city center. They passed the motorway and kept going.

Jack, for his part, talked on about the day's news and what he'd seen at the park and the ducks at the park and his boyfriend he was getting pretty serious about. His voice was rather droning and it allowed Fin to get lost in his own thoughts while not allowing uncomfortable silence.

Clint Barton had a very short fuse when it came to this kind of shit. Celebrities or not (He is famous right? Maybe Katie's right and you need to pay attention.) what good came from screwing over someone using a cane? Who did that? Call it oversensitive sympathy, but Clint felt like screwing around with them.

It didn't hurt that he had his factory-made hearing aids in today because his SHIELD-made ones were futzing up something awful.

Quickly, he insinuated himself in between the guy and his tormentors and put on a very apologetic look when they got uppity, all while signing Fuck you and the horse you rode in on in his most concerned-looking ASL. Unsurprisingly, they didn't know the signage and Clint put himself into the space next to the man walking with the cane.

Out of earshot of the others, he put a careful hand on the guy's shoulder. "You okay?"

"Hey man, it's fine. And if you don't mind the irony of a deaf guy making the offer, I can walk with you where you need," Clint offered. It was kind of a backhanded offer but he knows the guy is shaken up.

"Or, you know, a fortifying beer. Whatever."

He nodded at first before realizing the obvious and added, out loud, "Of course." Being London, there was no difficulty in finding a pub and there was one nearby that served decent food and hadn't kicked him out for sharking people at darts.

"I'm Clint Barton, by the way." He held out a hand to shake before retracting it. "And before I do something stupid, I should ask how much vision you've got, if any."

Sunny yelled the most offensive thing she could think of in Pidgin, and whether the woman jumped because of the anger or the only half-understandable foreign language, she jumped in a rather satisfying manner before scurrying off on her way. It probably wouldn't be long before she was muttering about immigrants instead. Sunny would take that chance.

"Hi, Fin," she said, softer. "You okay?"

Having had far too much experience coming home without something because some demon classmate or other swiped it, Sunny knew exactly what she was looking at. And her face immediately clouded. "Do I need to punch someone? I can punch someone. No one admits girls beat them up."

Watching the bloke nearly crash into someone, coupled with the snide remark from the other woman standing nearby, was enough to make Lowell stop and see if he needed help. Was he a celebrity? Maybe Lowell had been out of the country for too long.

"You're never going to get something on this corner, mate," he said, almost apologetically. "Two blocks down is better for a cab. I'm heading that way, I can show you."

Lowell couldn't even imagine trying to navigate this city blind. It was hard enough to do when you could see, sometimes. "Well, there's a posh pub just behind you," he said. "Where are you heading?"

"Yeah?" Lowell glanced back at it. "Well, you want some company?"

Pause. "And I realize that comes out sounding either like I think you require my help or that I'm coming onto you, but it's neither, I just think a pint sounds good."
