I'm in the mood for angst with a happy ending, and need your help!
Not sure if this is on LJ or FF, but here goes... I'm thinking FF as if it was on LJ I'm pretty sure I'd've memoried it.
It starts with Puck on his way back from somewhere (fightclub?) and spots a pair of earphones in an alleyway, and thinks "sweet, a new set" and it turns out that the earphones belong to Kurt, and he's still there, but severely injured after a violent attack. Puck dials 911 after checking that it's Kurt (who flinches when Puck gets close), and goes with him to hospital - Puck ends up all bloody and shocky - pretty sure that Burt comes to the hospital and Puck either hangs around, or just quietly disappears.
The next day, in Glee, Puck has a bit of a breakdown when he's talking about why Kurt isn't there - it's about the blood on Kurt's white pants, Puck ends up on his hands and knees on the floor, repeating the line about the white pants, and Mercedes tries to comfort him. The Glee clubbers are a bit confused as to why Puck is so upset. Time passes, and Kurt begins to heal, Puck hanging around Kurt a lot.
The attackers know Kurt and have sliced his ankle(s) so that he'll never dance again. Puck's all protective of Kurt which blossoms into romance. They get the attackers in the end because one of them brags and is overheard - they're not at WMHS, but Kurt is well known in Lima for being gay so he's a target. One line that stood out is about Puck describing Kurt's funny lolloping gait as he runs because of the damage to his ankle.
Not sure if I'm mixing up two fics together, and I hope I've given enough detail to pinpoint which one I'm looking for, because I know there's a few Kurt-is-attacked-and-Puck-is-his-rescuer fics out there.
Mods: If I've gone overboard with the tags, trim me down!
