Okay, this is an odd bit of MFU dark!fic I wrote a while back. It's sort of a "Schrodinger's ficlet", in that I could waffle back and forth forever on whether it's any good... I hate those, because the only way to collapse the function is to post. o_O

Title: Useful [I am so imaginative, yeah? lol]
Summary: Illya is a supremely useful partner.
Notes: Gen, rated G. 200 words. Warning for dark!Napoleon.

Here goes, then )
Probably most people on my flist who would be interested in this already know about it, but I thought I'd mention it anyway:

There is a brand-new Man from UNCLE comm specifically for picture squee. It's called [livejournal.com profile] mfu_yumdaily. Anyone can post any UNCLE-related picture at any time, including any shot of DMc or RV (and a good many of us already have)... or if you're looking for a specific image, you can do a search post!

Even if you're not familiar with the show - those are two very handsome guys right there. So take a look, if you please, and happy drooling! ;-)
Here's my entry for the [livejournal.com profile] mfuwss Exhibition Remix Challenge! It's actually not due till June 1, but I'm putting it up today so I'll just have to link it there on Tuesday. (This looks like being a busy week.)

Title: Fine Print (The Connections Remix)
Summary: Napoleon gets a wedding invitation from an old flame.
Notes: Gen, 455 words. Remix of "Fine Print" by [livejournal.com profile] theladyrose, located here on FFnet and here on network_command. Rated G.

Story under here... )
This one can be blamed on, or credited to, my sister; I was using the cap as a profile picture on my Facebook (yes, my longstanding habit of using not-me icons has carried over to Facebook) and this is what she commented. ;-)

Cap by [livejournal.com profile] illyushadarling, of course, from "The Prince of Darkness Affair Part 1".

I really don't know if this is any good, but I think it's as good as it's going to get. Anyway, I need to get it off my mind and into the fresh air - is that a mixed metaphor? o.O

Title suggestions welcome.

Title: (no title)
Summary: mildly angsty "Say UNCLE Affair" tagfic.
Notes: Gen, double drabble. Makes a lot more sense if you've seen the ep. (Hulu will start charging for it on May 15 2010, so get over there now if you haven't!)

Ninja!Ducky and General Solo under the cut... )
Back to the ever-reliable "ur doin it rong"... this time with a crossover pun on the side. Hey, everybody does it. ;-)

(Screencap by [livejournal.com profile] illyushadarling from the Five Daughters Affair Part 1.)
I'm not very fond of April Fool's Day in general, but I seem to have written a rather cracky piece that (I hope) goes well with the day.

Title: Ruling the Roost
Summary: Napoleon's looking for a new apartment. Illya agrees to help.
Notes: Gen, rated G. 760 words. This bit of nonsense is dedicated to a certain portion of my flist... *winks*

Sanity is highly overrated. )

(Well, anyway, I hope you guys like it!)
This one is actually a team effort - caption suggested by [livejournal.com profile] spikesgirl58 about [livejournal.com profile] bluemeanybeany's Illya Therapy icon during an [livejournal.com profile] mfu_canteen discussion, screencap by [livejournal.com profile] reera_the_red on FrameCapLib. Me, I just put it all together.

(I've been meaning to do this one for months. Just kept never getting around to it...)

So - having randomly run across Noel Harrison in a '70s docudrama/biopic about Padre Eusebio Kino, of all things, and discovered that besides being a fairly good actor he's got a very nice smile and lovely hands - I've been watching some Girl from UNCLE on YouTube.

More on that when I've worked through the available episodes (I've only seen three so far)... my point right now is, that having got tired of no DMc, I slid over to Hulu.com because I'd never seen "The Say UNCLE Affair".

BAD idea when one really ought to be on a strict fluff diet. But anyway, I thought I'd do a bit of a review/reaction post.

Cut for mild spoilers... )
Okay, I apparently can has cuddlefic! Sweet!

No, I did not rip off [livejournal.com profile] primsong 's "Snowbound"... not intentionally, anyway. (Though I doubt I'll ever write a cuddlefluff that doesn't show your influence, Prim, nor do I want to. *g*) The original source of this bunny was a discussion question on [livejournal.com profile] mfu_canteen awhile back, "what would you do if you were snowed up with one of the guys?" This is my honest answer.

Title: Universal Constant
Summary: What would you do if you were snowed up in a cabin with Illya Kuryakin?
Notes: Gen and G-rated, as usual... hey, it's me. ;-) 200+ words.

Fluffity fluff! And also science. Sort of. )
Originally posted in [livejournal.com profile] eponymous_rose 's [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking . I keep writing these odd little crossover scenes - maybe I should collect them somewhere and call it Many Meetings. ;-)

Title: Intersections
Summary: Liz Shaw doesn't need a lab assistant.
Notes: Gen, rated G. 422 words. Doctor Who/Man from UNCLE crossover.

Clicky to read... )
This tale grew in the telling, as a very wise man said on another occasion...

I was just going to post a couple of pictures from (I think) "Around the World Under the Sea", as a special Christmas treat for [livejournal.com profile] illyushadarling  because she isn't feeling well (to put it mildly.) And then I started thinking a bit of a personalized caption or some such might be nice. This is the final result.

To recap a bit (ooh, was that a pun?): Illyushadarling's post yesterday, informing us that she couldn't post screencaps because she had a nasty stomach bug, began something like this:

'Twas the night before Christmas,
And all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring
Except for illyushadarling puking her guts out.

Not pretty, but expressive. Being the sort of person who is plot-bunnied - or in this case, picspam-bunnied - by the oddest things, I bring the much pleasanter tale of what happened next. With lots of large pictures, so it's under the cut.

Right this way... )

Also the swimtrunks!DMc pictures I promised - found for me by [livejournal.com profile] periwinkle27  on DavidMcCallumFansOnline - plus a totally gratuitous shot of Steel I bagged from [livejournal.com profile] sarlania because I cannot resist this man in blue plaid flannel.

Another cut... )
I have finally produced a new LOLIllya! (It's tricky, because I have a dual-boot computer, and the image editing software is on the OS I don't take onto the Internet - so poking through screencaps to save good ones, then cropping and captioning them, are two different projects. Anyway.) Caption inspired by [livejournal.com profile] lolmac 's LOLBouquet, but frankly it's more of an excuse to post an arm shot... I wish both boys had worn those Thrush jumpsuits more often!
*sporfle* You know I had to do these! (But I didn't like the answer choices very much - they were almost entirely fanon rather than canon. I did both quizzes, but I think the result from the Napoleon one is more accurate... *g*)

Bagged from [livejournal.com profile] lothithil , but the direct link is here.

The first quiz I did (of course) was "Which Illya Kuryakin are you?" Answer is below. My reaction: "Heh, in my dreams!" (Sardonic, enigmatic, focused? I'm more like "accidentally rude, chatterbox, easily distracted".)

Which Illya Kuryakin are you?

this quiz was made by lyrebird

And this one was "Which Napoleon Solo are you?" I filled up the answers perfectly truthfully (yes, my favorite article of clothing really is a shoulder holster; I even put it on my Christmas list, but my sisters said "no way"), and here is the answer I got. Hee hee!

Which Napoleon Solo are you?

Okay, these are not staying drabble-length very well.

Challenge word #3 was "alien" - the original intent as a Doctor Who challenge, of course, was space aliens, but I thought of a different sort of alien...

This is actually a concept I've been thinking about for a while. We usually see fics where Napoleon is the first person to help Illya feel welcome in New York, but that generally feels a bit contrived to me, plus I'm always interested in minor characters (I've written Siler-centric before now, for Pete's sake!) So here's a different take on the topic.

Title: In a Strange Land
Summary: What do you say to a Soviet Russian on the Fourth of July?
Notes: Gen, 400-ish words. Pre-series.

Quadrabble under here... )
Okay, the second dw100 challenge word was "food" - pretty obvious who I'd be writing about for that one, eh? ;D It actually took me some time to come up with this particular idea, and I apologize wholeheartedly for stealing the concept (and the foods) from a 'Gatefic of which I do not remember the author.

Title: Food Fight
Summary: Illya's first food fight in the UNCLE cafeteria.
Notes: Gen, double drabble i.e. 200 words. Early partnership. Blue Jello courtesy of the SGC. ;-)

Under the cut... )
Between Lothi's [livejournal.com profile] mfuwss drabbles and [livejournal.com profile] dw100 , I am surrounded by drabble challenges. However, I find it quite difficult to write on a topic someone else has already written on, without some kind of twist. I have therefore embarked, for no real discernible reason, on the project of writing an UNCLE drabble (or possibly a McCallum drabble) on each of the dw100 challenges.

The first challenge was "accidents". One is not required to use the word in the drabble; it's just for inspiration. Here is my take on the subject.

Title: Accidental Capture
Summary: Explains a certain oft-noted oddity of Napoleon Solo's wardrobe.
Notes: Gen, rated G. 100 words. Early partnership, pre-series. Silly, but... maybe not so silly. ;-)

Drabble under here... )
I has a pun!

(Picture from "The King of Diamonds Affair", capped by [livejournal.com profile] illyushadarling . Caption dreamed up so I could repost and have an excuse to stare at this superlative Illya!hands shot some more. *w* Linky to [livejournal.com profile] lothithil 's shortfic "Lovelocked", just 'cause.)

Fic: Golden

Dec. 5th, 2009 08:00 am
Um... this started as a sort of companion piece to "Restless", but it evolved quite a bit. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] illyushadarling for her very thorough screencaps of the cell scene in The Children's Day Affair, which gave me an ending for this otherwise pointless exercise in description-fic. ;-) I have no idea how well this works, but as "One More Time" showed I'm no judge of my own fic; I nearly threw that story away.

Title: Golden
Summary: Napoleon finds out what's with that thing Illya always wears around his neck.
Notes: Gen, 786 words. (Yes, I know it's really a medical alert for DMc's penicillin allergy.) Warning: I do portray Illya here as having religious faith, just so you know in case that offends you. I don't think I need to warn for totally gratuitous underwear!Illya, not with my flist... ;-)

Here's the story... )
Let's hope the image servers are behaving better now!

Picture from FrameCapLib... the ep with the goldfish guppies in the taps, whatever that was. (Mad Tea Party Affair?) Caption because it always takes me a second after I see this picture to realize he's not really holding a sword...
