The weather this weekend wasn't worth getting excited over, but it was fair enough to justify some time out and about. Stores were packed with new stock, cafes were brimming with life, and as always, London herself was buzzing with activity.

In South London Pop Brixton was celebrating its second birthday, offering up DJs and live performances, along side plenty of food and drink vendors. Though if your mouth's watering and that's a tube trip too far, you could always head on over to Westfield Shepherd's Bush, where you'd find a fun food truck festival. For those looking to fill up with girl power rather than pudding, you could always head over to the Powerpuff Girls pop up shop. As always, there was no shortage of things to do this weekend.

The news was still packed with election chatter, and talk of the concert for Manchester, but if you took a peek at twitter, you might find a little conspiracy brewing all about one Finlay Flynn- Who's management was currently fighting rumors about his disappearance. Little theories kept popping up, showing how his twitter feed seemed slightly off, or how filming for his BBC 3 show had been suspiciously delayed. There were youtube videos discussing it, threads on various online forums, all chattering about how the actor who was so often spotted on the tube or in pubs was suddenly absent. A silly little bit of internet crazy for most- But an unsettling reminder of his absence to those in the know.

Still, London stopped for nobody, and the city was in full bloom, just as it was every weekend.

(OTA! As always the GP will be open for at least a week, so tag in, tag others, and check back often!)

Danny was, at home at least, the picture of level headed lately. When Hex had told him about his desire to remain intimate with Fin, Danny had been understanding- Supportive, even. After all, should his illness take him one day, he wanted Hex to be happy and loved. He wanted him to live a full and rich life- And even now, have the things Danny knew they couldn't have together. Their sex life was rich and full, sure, but some things were off limits. They had to be.

Still, no matter how practical or understanding he was about it all, that didn't mean it didn't eat at him a bit. Didn't stop him from rolling his eyes every time Fin's name popped up as a hashtag on Twitter this week. ...And it definitely didn't stop him from going out that evening to blow off some steam.

He was doing his best not to over indulge, but he'd had a few lines by the time he hit the dance floor, and he wasn't anything less than eager when one of his dance partners gestured for him to follow him into the loo for another bump. No, Danny was perfectly happy to do a few more. By midnight he was starting to look a bit strung out, and he hung about outside watching the crowd while indulging in a smoke. He was antsy, shifting his weight from foot to foot, and though he didn't mean to do it, he looked like he was on the pull. ...Hell, maybe he was.

Danny just had a way about him that whispered, 'take me home'. He always had. Love had never been easy to find, but a shag? He'd never gone without that unless he decided he wasn't looking. Even now, older, thinner, tweaked out- Danny could pull without even trying. Though as his lighter failed to produce a spark, a shag wasn't what he was after when he stopped the next person walking by.

"Sorry, do you have a light?" he asked.

In a couple of nights Jack would be at home with Val, who would be in his cage while the wolf took over. But tonight he'd split off from the man to do a little investigating into an unusual sighting at a club. He'd found the alien straight off and determined she was no threat, but he tagged her for monitoring and let her go on her way. He'd learned in his many years with Torchwood that more often than not the aliens who found their way to Earth just wanted to live in peace.

He was starting for the SUV when a young man asked for a light. Jack was always easy charm and swagger and he always carried a lighter with him.

"Sure," he said, fishing out the bic. "Here you go, kid."

"Thanks," Danny said, leaning in and lighting up with a long drag.

He exhaled slowly, closing his eyes and enjoying that first pull, before opening them again to admire the stranger. Had this bloke really called him kid? It felt like it had been so long since someone had seen him as young.

"Thanks," he grinned, his smile bright and flirtatious.

Jack flashed a bright, charming smile back at him and pocketed the lighter.

"You look like you're having a good time," he said.

"Could be having a better time," Danny grinned, "It's been an alright night though, so far..."

"Few drinks? Some dancing?" Jack asked, his smile showing teeth and his eyes sparkling even in the dark of the night. There were enough lights around the club that he had no shadow to hide in.

"Something like that, yeah," Danny nodded. "You look like you're headed home though. ...You want company?" he offered.

The words were out before he could even think about what he was saying or doing.

"Headed back to work, actually," he said, taking in the entire picture of the kid. He was drunk and high...and sick. Jack could taste it on him. In his opinion getting him away from the club would probably save his life.

"...But I can be late. You want to get out of here?"

"Who works this late?" Danny asked with a laugh, though his curiosity was genuine, even through the buzz of everything currently coursing through his system.

"You've never heard of the night shift?" Jack quipped. He reached out and clapped his hand against Danny's back, pulling him along. "Anyone inside you need to say goodbye to?"

"No, just me tonight," Danny said, shaking his head a bit and letting himself be led along. Though he did have the sense to pull his phone out and turn on his GPS. He was high, but he wasn't so gone he didn't know to take precautions when wandering off with a stranger.

"Aren't I lucky," Jack said, then patted Danny on the back. "How about before anything we get some coffee. Maybe some chips or something. I'm starving."

From: [personal profile] london_spy
"Chips?"

Danny looked unsure, a bit confused by the other man. Sure, it had been a bit since he last pulled, but generally the blokes he pulled were looking to get him undressed, not fed.

"I can think of better ways to feed your appetite."

"I bet you can," Jack grinned. He hit his fob and the SUV chirped, unlocking and disarming. He opened the door.

"My name's Jack," he said. "Get in."

"Danny," he said, climbing in and enjoying the little rush he felt at knowing he was doing something stupid tonight. For the first time in a while, he felt reckless in the best way.

Jack smiled and shut the door with some sense of finality. He went around the front and got in behind the wheel.

"Buckled in?" Jack asked, offering no explanation for the insane amount of tech on the dash and in the back seat.

Danny was silent at first, taking it all in. The look he gave Jack then was one of unease and distrust.

"What sort of work did you say you did?" he asked.

"I'm Torchwood," he replied simply as he pulled out into traffic.

"You say that like it should mean something. What does it mean?" Danny pressed.

Jack turned to look at him and flashed a genuine smile of amusement.

"Seriously? You might be the only person I've ever met who didn't know something already," he said. He turned his attention back to traffic so he didn't crash. "Torchwood is a special organization, appointed by the crown, to defend the UK against hostiles."

Date: 2017-06-09 10:05 pm (UTC)

Danny tensed up at that, looking uneasy.

"What kind of hostiles?" he asked, his hand moving to rest on the handle of the door.

"Don't get twitchy, Danny. Aliens...not locals," Jack said. Anymore, in this political climate, he'd found if he said 'aliens people just assumed he meant immigrants.

At that Danny's features shifted from worried to unimpressed.

"Right," he muttered. "Maybe we shouldn't talk shop then, I don't think our views would mesh, mate."

"Yeah? Probably. What do you do, out of curiosity," he asked as he headed for a nearby chip shop and parked.

"Me? I don't do anything," Danny said honestly, always a bit embarrassed when he had to admit that. "Suppose I'll have to find work eventually, but for now I'm getting by."
