[OOC: After the end of this episode.]

The voices of the others echo softly and mutedly from below, as Jack sits slowly down behind his desk with a slight sigh. He feels tired, even if, thanks to the earlier regeneration, he doesn't look it in the least.

He looks up at Gwen Cooper again.

"I suppose I should get the formalities out of the way, at least," he says. "When can you start?"

She glances around the office, taking things in before looking at Jack. "Oh, uh, immediately. What...what should I tell them? Work, that is."

Old work. Whatever.

"Oh, they'll love that." Gwen grins. "You lot tellin' them what to do all the time. Takin' their employees."

"...Our lot," She murmurs, correcting her earlier statement. It's a bit weird, that...the fact she's now part of Torchwood, part of the organisation she's been stalking. "Part of the team now, huh?"

Nervous look? Check.

"Oh lovely." She sighs, crossing her arms and throws a glance towards the window to look at the others at their stations. "I can't wait."

"I'll probably piss them off without tryin'." She crosses her arms and looks back at Jack. "So, what do I call Torchwood to other people if they ask what I do? Special Ops?"

"Well, I'll say Special Ops if they ask what exactly Torchwood does. Can't really go 'round sayin' 'oh, we do alien catchings.'" Gwen flashes him a grin. "No one'd believe me. Regardless of all the things in London."

She laughs softly. Maybe she'll try that on her mother. Or Rhys...or Andy. Anyone. "All right then. Anythin' I need to know, 'bout working here? Stuff I shouldn't say or do?"

She doesn't want to fuck up royally. Like she will anyway.

"Of course." She nods, tucking hair behind her ear. "I'm police, I know how to listen to orders."

Except ones to stop stalking Torchwood.

She shakes her head, smiling. "Yeah, yeah."

Gwen falls silent, looking around the office again, at a loss of what else to say. It'd been a long day for her. Two deaths, one of them coming back and being held at gunpoint is enough to shock anyone. Follow it up with remembering everything and being offered a job...and Gwen needs a drink.

"Like I'm dreaming." She says, after a moment. "And I'm afraid I'm going to wake up."

She doesn't want to wake up.

She nods slightly. Thoughts fly through her mind and she doesn't know how to categorise them or even ask the questions that arise from them. "I hope I do too."

She laughs softly, without humour. "Yeah. I'm a PC, and I've never been that scared in my life."

"Just a job?" She snorts softly. "Suzie said otherwise."

"She only said she loved it." And that it got inside of you. And gets to you. "And I know what she was."

"I'm not Suzie." Gwen points out. "Maybe I won't make the same mistakes."

She watches him for a long moment before dragging her gaze away. "Me too."
