Summary: Connor should have listened to Ryan.

            Connor hunched into his jacket against the cold October evening as he headed down the street to Ryan’s flat. It wasn’t the cold weather that was making him angry, though.

            How could Ryan do this? Just call and blow him off like that when they had arranged to go out together? Was it something he’d done? Had Ryan suddenly gone off him or something? Everything had seemed fine when they went to the cinema three nights ago, so why the sudden about turn?

            Connor stopped outside Ryan’s door. He was sure this was the one, even though he’d only been here once. Ryan had told him not to come round, and he hesitated for a moment before he made a decision. To hell with it. He’d come this far, he wasn’t backing down now.  

            It took three attempts of banging before the light came on in the hallway and the door opened. Ryan looked tired, and more than a little pissed off.

            “What are you doing here?” he demanded.

            “Trying to work out what the hell is going on with you. With us. If there even is an ‘us’ any more.”

            “I told you not to come here.” Ryan’s voice was hard, and his eyes seemed cold.

            “I don’t care,” Connor all but yelled. “You think you can just call and dump me like that with no explanation? No reason at all? Because you can’t.”

            “Just go.” Ryan tried to close the door but Connor lunged forward and stuck his foot in the way, and shoved the door open again.

            “At least give me a bloody reason, Ryan.”

            “Because I’m not safe.” The words were quiet, so quiet Connor almost didn’t hear them.

            “What’s that supposed to mean?” he asked, honestly bewildered.

            “Something’s happened to me, Connor. I’ve changed. I don’t want to hurt you. That’s why you can’t be here.”

            Connor felt his anger starting to dissipate when he heard the pain, and fear, in Ryan’s voice.

“I don’t understand,” Connor said. He reached out but Ryan backed away, and Connor let his hand drop again.

“I’m sorry.”

Ryan’s voice suddenly sounded deeper, harsher. His eyes left Connor and he appeared to be looking at something over Connor’s shoulder. Connor hesitated, and glanced round to see what it was. There was nothing there, just the street, and the bright glare of the full moon rising over the house opposite. He looked back at Ryan, now even more confused than ever.

Abruptly Ryan’s hand snatched out and grabbed Connor’s and dragged him close. Connor felt a sharp pain in his wrist and wondered for a moment when Ryan had let his fingernails grow like that.

Or when his eyes had become yellow.

 “You should have gone when I told you,” Ryan said, his voice a low, guttural growl. He snarled. Connor tried to pull away, but the soldier was too strong. Far too strong. Ryan yanked him close again, and his smile became a hungry, feral look that showed too many teeth.

“How fast can you run, Connor?”

I thought of this about a fortnight ago and had been saving it for Halloween. I'm surprised there aren't more halloween fics. Is everyone out or something since it's Friday?

There there. I'm sure Connor can run *very* fast when there's something big and scary after him. He's had enough practice!

Ooh, good one! It does seem quiet at the moment. I've just got back from a very nice Indian meal with a friend.

That sounds nice. I have to admit I'm not a huge fan of Indian food, mostly because I don't like things that are too hot and spicy. My favourites for eating out are Chinese or Italian.

After all those protective!Ryan fics we've had recently, I like the thought of evil dangerous Ryan *grin*.

I just read the second half of this through my fingers, accompanied by several meeps! Scary, but cool! :D

heehee! Werewolves used to scare the hell out me when I was little. I could watch ghost or zombie or monster films and not bat an eyelid, but werewolves were guaranteed to have me running away and hiding, especially the bits where they changed form.

Oooh, scary Ryan! I was hoping someone might come up with a Halloween fic!

Like I said to Fred, I'm surprised that there haven't been more halloween fics. Maybe because most of the usual suspects are busy with VS3? (which is what I should probably be doing rather than hanging around lj wondering where everyone is).

Heehee! I like being evil and making the good guys scary, I'm afraid. And it is halloween, after all *grin*. Nice to know you liked, despite the scary!Ryan.

Have you read Telperion's primeval vampire mini-series from ages ago? If not, I'll try to find you the links.

I think the only thing that could make this fic more awsome, is if Connor went just as growly, and said who do you think bit you. great story.

is if Connor went just as growly, and said who do you think bit you.

Oh yes, I like that idea a lot. *evil grin* I wonder if werewolf!porn would count as bestiality?

I'm very partial to monster horror - I collect vampire novels, after all. *veg*

It's already been mentioned in other comments, but this reminds me of Dog Soldiers, which I absolutely adore.

And it could have been worse. Connor could have had the door opened by zombie!Ryan...

OMG I've just been bunnied... *runs and hides*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: November 1st, 2008 09:15 am (UTC) (Link)
Heehee! As I said to Telperion, werewolf films scare the hell out of me, but I'm also fascinated by werewolves and the mythology and such around them. This thread has got me in the mood to watch Dog Soldiers again, as I haven't seen it for a while. And thinking about it, that film is an almost perfect example of a seige situation, and since we're all thinking about the seige fic challenge it could be useful.

Zombie!Ryan? Meep! That wouldn't be at all sexy, there'd be bits rotting and dropping off an everything!

*waits to see what the zombie bunny brings*

Oooh - awesome and scary!
Great fic! I love dangerous!Ryan.

Dangerous!Ryan is worryingly sexy.

Something’s happened to me, Connor. I’ve changed.
Not just the usual chestnut, eh? *g* *loves*

You know, there really should be more of this, in another universe where you live in a tower and write fic for me non-stop *veg*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: November 1st, 2008 04:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
heehee! Glad you liked.

And I quite like the idea of living in a tower and writing fic all the time. As long as I can have frequent tea breaks to *read* fic as well, mind you.

Love it!

Meep for poor Connor, but I bet he can run very fast when he needs to.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 17th, 2009 08:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
heehee, Connor has certainly had enough practice at running away from scary things!
