    Summary

    Chapter 1.5 of Rare Accidents. Written to Naraht's request for something set 15 minutes after the close of Chapter 1 of that fic.

    Content advisory: contains fairly extensive and uneuphemistic reference to (canonical) underage and dubiously consensual sex, excuse made for same by a sympathetic character; references to rape; homophobic language and attitudes; misogynistic language and attitudes; references to drug and alcohol abuse.
