Yandere Trance featuring freaking Bunny Manders, because I have lost control of my life.
…Truthfully, I’ve thought about doing this for months, because
because you cannot tell me he isn’t
a little bit
Raffles, for the moment, was absolutely blinded; as I say, his face was streaming with blood and whiskey, and the prince of traitors already crowing over his vile handiwork. But that was only for a moment, too; the blackguard had been fool enough to turn his back on me; and, first jumping upon my chair, I sprang upon him like any leopard, and brought him down with my ten fingers in his neck, and such a crack on the parquet with his skull as left it a deadweight on my hands. I remember the rasping of his bristles as I disengaged my fingers and let the leaden head fall back; it fell sideways now, and if it had but looked less dead I believe I should have stamped the life out of the reptile on the spot.
I know that I rose exultant from my deed….

Even The Fate of Faustina, though?
Well okay, if I have to pick a least favourite, it’s The Fate of Faustina… but honestly, I don’t dislike it?
I love how you basically said “all of them” this is what a true fan looks like e’reybody!
Y’know, usually with short story collections, there’s one or two stories you don’t really like BUT I JUST GENUINLY LIKE ALL THE RAFFLES STORIES.
What is your favorite Raffles story?
Oh, oh, another cute Raffles anon! :D You ask such hard questions, anon! I’ve thought about this before, but I could never decide… But these are a few of my favourites…
My favs from The Amateur Cracksman:
My favs from The Black Mask:
My favs from A Thief in the Night: All of them. No, literally all of them. This book is my fav!
Wow, that’s… that’s over half the stories. Sorry, I’m not very good at narrowing things down…! O:
no, but you have to tell me who had the chastity belt??? Was it Bunny? I bet it was Bunny.
I remember absolutely nothing about this book! How on earth does a chastity belt even come into the picture? Like, what is the context?? I need to flip through it and see if I can find it because I don’t remember!
