    Summary

    ‘What are you doing, A. J.?’ I hissed as Raffles, eyes bright with that mischievous glitter I knew only too well, slipped his arm from mine, shrugged off his coat, and tossed it into a nearby bush.
    Raffles nodded toward the illuminated doorway across the otherwise quiet Chelsea street, around which various fashionable folk were clustering. ‘Looks like an art exhibition' he said to me in a low, excited voice, 'and an exclusive one, at that, if the chap on the door and the jewellery on the people loitering around are any measures. Exclusive probably means good, and at the very least it means good free champagne. I haven’t been to a decent exhibition in ages! Come on, Bunny!’

    Raffles and Bunny get more than they bargain for when they gatecrash an exclusive art exhibition.

    Sometimes Raffles gets Bunny into the sort of trouble that makes him regret his life choices. The night they go hunting south of the river is one such occasion.

    Summary

    Jaskier has waited long enough for an apology that might never come, so he takes matters into his own hands in the most dramatic way he knows how. (not a Death-fic)
