The past few weeks had been a whirlwind. Ever since he'd met Jack it was as though everything had changed, like he had changed. Val was giving up his museum, joining Jack's team. ...He had even opened his home to the other man, and things between them were moving fast. Insanely fast, if he was honest. So insane that anytime he slowed down to think about it, he found himself slightly shocked by his own behaviour.

It was good though, he felt good. Maybe a change was exactly what he'd needed. Maybe a bit of insanity wasn't such a bad thing.

A side effect of not having the museum to run meant he had more free nights, and though he often spent them with Jack, or at Torchwood, he was also back into a familiar habit of dropping by his favourite private club to spend time with the lads. Tonight was one of those nights, and he was nursing a few fingers of scotch while cousin Denton chatted his ear off about some bird he fancied and they watched Teddy and Kelly play the worst game of snooker ever.

"You know, it is good to see you here on a Saturday, Valentine. You never come 'round on a Saturday," Denton said cheerfully.

Val had been watching Teddy awkwardly stretch across the table on tiptoes, cue behind his back as he lined up a shot that would never sink a single ball. "It's Friday, Denton," Val replied, glancing over and raising a brow.

"No, it's definitely Saturday," Denton assured him seriously. "I know, because on a Friday I take Aunt Millie down to visit Uncle Randal's grave. I did that yesterday. So, today is Saturday. Can't pull one on me, Valentine," he grinned, tapping his nose and then pointing at Val.

Val, however, wasn't smiling. "Shit," he muttered, pulling out his phone and checking the time. How had he missed a whole bloody day? It wasn't like him to make such a huge error, and he downed his scotch in one go as he tried not to think too much on how he'd gotten so careless. "Sorry, Dent, must be off," he said, not waiting for a goodbye before headed for the door.

His car was parked just outside, but he knew there was no way he'd get home before he changed. It just wouldn't be possible, and the last thing he wanted was to turn while driving. No, best to risk it on foot- That's what he decided as he briskly took off towards his home. Again, he wouldn't be there before he turned, but if he was careful... Maybe he could make it home unseen.

...He barely made it halfway, ducking into an alley just as the wolf began to overpower him. He had more control now, could change at will, but this was happening now, tonight. He couldn't fight a full moon.  The wolf was coming.

The last thing he remembered was a dark alley and loud voices. The wolf's memories were always blurry... But there had been a bang, and then pain, and when he'd opened his eyes again he could still see the moon above him. It was there now too, full and watching over him as he lay bare in the alley, his human form restored and blood swiftly exiting his body thanks to a bullet hole in his left side. This wasn't where he'd turned though, his clothes and phone were stashed a block away, where he'd hoped he might retrieve them tomorrow- But even if they'd been near, he wasn't sure he'd have had the strength to call for help. As it was, he could only just barely croak out a shout- A garbled word, desperate and breathless, lost to the cold air of the night.

(As noted in the title, this is actually timed to the night of the 11th, when the moon is full). I'm posting it early as I know a lot of people don't have time to tag during the weekend. OTA, LT/ST welcome.)

Jack was keenly aware of what day it was. What night. Val had warned him what would happen and he'd followed him tonight to see what might happen. He'd gotten distracted while Val was in the club, fucking around on his phone, and so he didn't see him leave.

He did hear a gunshot, though.

He didn't know it was Val who'd been shot, though that made little difference. He ran toward the sound to see if he could help whoever it was. Gunshots, while they did happen, were not terribly common in London. And so Jack ran, coat billowing behind him.

He found Val and that was when a rush of adrenaline pumped through him.

"Val? Val," he said, checking the wound. "Good. Good, through and through. Let me stop the bleeding," he said, mostly to himself as he put pressure on to staunch the flow of blood.

"Yeah, I know," he said, even though he thought going to hospital might be the better bet. "First we need to stop the bleeding, though. Did you see who shot you?"

"That's okay. Whoever it was, they're not here now," Jack said. The bloodflow wouldn't stop and he could barely see here in the dark. And he knew he couldn't carry Val all the way back to the SUV and risk getting stuck in traffic.

There was only one option.

"I really need you to trust me right now," he said and opened the strap on his wrist, pushing a couple buttons. Then he gathered Val in his arms and in a blink they were in Val's home. Their home.

"You've got to let go, Val. Here, put your hand here and press," Jack said, gentle but authoritative. He wasn't going to coddle Val when what he really needed was a field dressing.

"Got it? Good. I'll be right back."

And then he sprinted away to find antiseptic and bandages. When he couldn't readily find anything but gauze he went for the linen closet and pulled out an Egyptian cotten sheet, willing to sacrifice some bedding for this. He hurried back to Val's side to start to patch him up.

It was something he was...far too good at. Just another glimpse into Jack's past...

The full moon wasn't Sunny's favorite time to be out just for the sheer amount of danger and weirdness that could happen, but it was also the only time certain materials could be properly attained and some spellwork that she had to get done tonight if she wanted it done this month.

The sound of a gunshot immediately got her attention, though. Mostly because she had been pretty sure that... well, guns weren't really a thing here.

She didn't find the shooter, but she did find a naked man bleeding at an alarming rate which was past awful enough that the naked barely registered. "Oh my God!" But she at least wasn't completely useless while exclaiming this, instead pulling off the scarf she was wearing and kneeling down beside him and trying to staunch the bleeding enough that he'd at least have a chance at not dying before she could get out her cell phone.

She frowned when he spoke, mostly because she was winding up to say screw it and call an ambulance anyway. And then she looked at him. Really looked at him. It had been a while, but... "Val?" And then immediately she understood.

"This works out, in a way. I can take care of it." And her phone disappeared back into her bag, where she traded it for a knife with what looked like a green glass blade. "No exit wound?"

From: [personal profile] akatawitch
"What, so I'm supposed to just leave you to die here?" Sunny snapped, ignoring him. She knew what the risks were. She also knew she couldn't look Em or Jag in the eye if she walked away, especially if he really did die as a result. "This will probably hurt."

Not knowing how deep the bullet was in his flesh and not wanting to stick her hands in anyway for several reasons having to do with hygiene, Sunny pointed her knife at the wound and said simply, "Out." At which point, the bullet began to dislodge itself until it was pushing against the wadded scarf.

Full moon nights were always a trip down memory lane, though usually of darker times.

The gunshot caught his attention, and Gavril was chasing down the sound as fast as he could. Someone might have gotten hurt. And when the scent of blood caught his nose, he knew someone had gotten hurt.

"Not exactly how I was planning on meeting you again," Gavril said, kneeling beside the man. He knew a lot about bullet wounds, and he pressed the palm of his hand, hard, against the wound, hoping to stop the blood from flowing so freely.

He'd need to improvise a bandage. His shirt would work, but he wanted to slow this down, first.

"Stay with me, pal," Gavril said. "You shift on me, and this goes from bad to worse." Mostly for him; Gavril could always shift as well, and could probably at least match him for strength.

"Here," he said, taking Val's hand and pressing it down hard on the wound, switching his own out. "I need to check you for an exit wound," he said. "So unless you got the presence of mind to tell me if there is one, I gotta have both hands free."

He was already in the process of, perhaps too casually, ripping his own shirt off, taking it by the collar and just giving it a pull, splitting it at the shoulders. A bandage needed to be made, and it wasn't like the cold could bother him much.

"If you heal as the wolf, then that's fine. But we gotta keep you alive until you can, or will," Gavril said, calmly. He was already working on getting the makeshift bandage prepped and starting to lay it on the wound.

"I know some of your kind just can't help it," he said. "You don't gotta worry about me."

Akeem had smelled the blood on the air, and the strong scent of wolf that accompanied it. He'd picked up the pace and turned the corner just in time to see the wolf shift back into a naked, bleeding man, and now he hurried over, taking off his coat to press it down over the wound in the young man's side. "Can you focus?" he asked, trying to meet the gaze of the injured man, both hands bunching up his coat over the bleeding wound.

"Will you heal if you shift back?" Akeem asked urgently. The young man smelled like Akeem's kind of wolf, but he knew better than to assume. He didn't even know if he could heal from a bullet wound that way, he only knew that it had worked for his sprain.

At worst, he would call Greg.
