    Summary

    In the end, perhaps this outcome was inevitable; written in the stars from the outset, and merely speeded along on its course by the events of that Spring. Bunny knew it, I think, and by the end I knew it too, though we’d both had our eyes shut for far too long. Perhaps Bunny had always known better. Perhaps it had always been he, not I, who was the one awake, knowing and seeing that all dreams eventually die upon the knees of the gods.
     
    And yet he stayed. And yet he came back.

    A gap-filler story centering around the events of The Gift Of The Emperor. Alternating first person point of view between A. J. Raffles and Bunny Manders. Part I of a planned Three Part series, covering Before, During, and After.

    For E.W.H. This form of flattery.

    Regular updates!

    Summary

    Perhaps I, too, had been burning up and returning from the ashes. There were many days when I ached to return to a simpler life, a life where I was a young man who had known nothing of the sting of death and imprisonment.

    Summary

    ‘I think that maybe we’re both a little mad,’ I said, tucking myself in closer to him, nuzzling my head against his chest until I was in just the right place to feel his heart beating beneath his shirt. ‘But I should rather be mad with you than sane with the rest of the world.'

    Raffles and Bunny spend a happy afternoon together in the sun.

    Summary

    It had been a little over one week since the night of Angus Baird's murder, when Raffles finally arrived back at my doorstep. I had barely seen him since that night, other than the all-too-brief evening he had spent appraising me of the very basic details of what he had done in the end with poor Jack Rutter. After that he had vanished. It is needless to say that as well as being myself still thoroughly shaken by the dark events which had transpired, I was also furious at Raffles for his disappearing act—and deeply worried about him.
     
    In the immediate week following the events of Wilful Murder, Raffles invites Bunny to a Halloween ball in Devon - and Bunny grows ever more troubled by Raffles' erratic behaviour...

    Summary

    On the dancefloor Raffles the athlete met A.J. the artist, and they glided together in perfect pace and union. My admiration of him as I gazed was matched only by my jealousy; with each successive beautiful woman whose waist supported his hand, whose fingers interlocked with his, I grew ever more bitter that I could not and would never be permitted the same privilege.

    There are dances aplenty at the Irish ball where Raffles and Bunny acquired the Ardagh Emeralds. But whilst Raffles has an excellent time, Bunny is feeling somewhat more ambivalent...

    Summary

    Over the years, pieces of A.J. Raffles had flaked off: in school photos, in sports trophies engraved with his name, in a biscuit box next to a jubilee present, in an old exhibit full of stolen jewels - but in the end, he was at the bottom of the ocean, still swallowing water.

    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.

    For the Crime and Christmas 2020 Prompts Christmas Present and Christmas Yet To Come.
    (...very, very, very loosely interpreted... hahaha! And not very Christmassy at all. Oh well!)

    Summary

    Dear Bunny
    I’m afraid that this letter will never reach you. Letters which aren’t posted, or which, as this one shall be, are posted directly into the lighted fireplace, tend not to reach their intended recipients, except perhaps in fairytales. I'm not in a fairytale. And even if I were, I would certainly play the villain...
     
    A series of unsent letters between young Raffles and Bunny.

    Written for the CrimeChristmas 2020 Advent Prompt, 11: Letter.
