peter's sassy research

Nicked, 1/3 - Happy Birthday, oh lovely marvelous wonderful Donya!

Hey, Donya. Remember this? Thiefy Ryoma! I didn't forget about it, and I finished it in time for your birthday. Hope you still like it as much as you did before. *laughs* I wanted to get a bit more done for you, but maybe what I've got will keep you entertained for awhile? Happy twentieth!

Nicked, by kishmet. AU, Atobe/Ryoma, PG-13/R, 23,400 words. This takes place at an indeterminate time in an indeterminate place, and any mention of England, English, Italian, French, Portuguese, Spanish, etc. is purely coincidental. Italicized quotes are taken from Charles Dickens' novel Oliver Twist, which is the inspirational basis for this fic, except this fic is way gayer. Unless you ship Dodger/Oliver, that is.
