Because 2am inspiration is the Ferrero Rocher of inspiration, because New Tricks has some brilliant moments, because I finally worked out what's under Rafe's hood, and because Gwen and Rafe are a very, very cute couple.

Warning: Short and really sad and pretty bloody depressing.


The first thing that crosses Rafe’s mind is that seeing Gwen cry is the third most disturbing thing he’s ever seen. Considering the previous title-holder, that’s no small achievement.

The second thing is that he’s going to find out who’s responsible and make them pay a thousand times over, because women like her should never have to cry.

The third thing kicks the first two things out of his head and orders him to walk over there and comfort her, because the sobbing will break his heart and he’d much rather not let the rest of the world know that there’s a heart in there to break.

He tentatively puts an arm around her shoulder and she huddles against him, one hand tugging at his cloak in an attempt to shield herself from the horrors they’ve just seen. He understands all too well, and puts the other arm around her too, leaning his head forward so the hood slips down until there is just the two of them, shielded from the world by a heavy layer of wool.

“How do you cope?” she asks, her voice shaking so much that it takes him a few moments to realise what she’s asking. It’s a question he asked himself once, and there’s no good answer, only the true one.

“Nobody copes.” He holds her close and curses the bastard who started this.

Aww, poor Gwen. Sad

This makes me wonder what the previous title-holder was. And who is this dastardly villain?

Yeah, poor Gwen. She's not mentally equipped for the recent turns her life has taken.

The previous holder of third place involved how Rafe acquired a rather nasty scar across his face. There was a nutjob, a knife, and rope...

Said dastardly villain is a violent murderer who's handiwork Gwen has just seen. It's... unpleasant.
