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... )
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... )
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!)
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... )
*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?

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?

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. ;-)

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... )
First off: I haz big news! Four years, four months and three days ago (yes, I counted), my family moved house. Since then, we've been doing a major remodel on the old house and trying to sell it - not exactly at the same time. My mother and I did most of the work: plumbing, electrical, carpeting, drywall, flooring, cabinets, everything but roofing (which I refuse to learn, being acrophobic.) I even wrote a Doctor Who ficlet, Liberation, inspired by the subject.

Anyway. Today - today, right now, as I type - is the closing on the old house! Going, going, gone!!! Out of my hair! No more flitting around like an UNCLE agent in miniature, never knowing what will go wrong next or where I'll spend the night; no more camping without running water or a working stove! (Granted, these experiences do help me get inside the boys' heads when I'm writing, but I'd just as lief not have any more for a while, y'know?)

So, in celebration, a plumber!Illya LOL. (You know you're going a little bit crazy when you seriously consider dreaming up a scenario where Illya takes a long-term undercover assignment as a handyman just so you can turn around all the crazy things that happen to you and happen them to him. No, I didn't do it.)

I must be the only person on [livejournal.com profile] illyushadarling 's flist who, when confronted with this particular Illya-costume from The Off-Broadway Affair, saw something besides Baby Ducky. (I absolutely love this costume... but that's a bit beside the point, isn't it?)

If you don't get the caption, there's an explanation below the LOL.

Ur doin it first!

Okay. If you didn't get it: it's a MacGyver joke. Mac occasionally goes undercover as a computer geek named Dexter Fillmore; the disguise consists of scruffy clothes, thick glasses, and really seriously good, Illya!Nexor level, acting. This is Mac (in Dexter's clothes, but not in character); this is Dexter.

And if you haven't seen MacGyver, you should.
Well, the Winner By a Nose Affair "missing scene" is now longer than the rest of the Affair... I hope that's a good thing. We'll see.

I has a LOL for today. I have a strange feeling that I ought to say something about it, but we just watched a BBC film of Henry IV Part 2, and my brains all trickled out my ears. They cut at least half the dialogue and it was still over two hours long, and everybody was mumbling the whole time except the Archbishop of York. (And I still don't get why the great tradition of Shakespeare criticism finds Falstaff so lovable.)

Equal time for silly costumes... here's a special treat just for my flist. Don't ask me why my head started playing with the Illya-in-drag motif earlier today (other than that I had to wear a skirt), it just did. So I randomly wrote up this piece of silliness, and I am posting before my common sense kicks in.

Title: No real title yet. Suggestions?
Summary: Illya wants to win the UNCLE Halloween costume contest for Most Effective Disguise. Napoleon has a suggestion.
Notes: Gen, 1300+ words. Please tell me if it's stupid; I won't hate y'all.

ETA: Due to popular demand, there is now a second chapter to this piece of craziness - and more is planned, if I ever manage to write it!

Napoleon shows off his Halloween costume...

I am indebted to [profile] reera_the_red of FrameCapLib for the pic, to [livejournal.com profile] lolmac for the original caption (I quote her LOLPuppyEyes frequently), and to [livejournal.com profile] xparrot for calling this "Napoleon's beagle-ears hat".


I consider myself very lucky that, unlike Beth, I am not in the business of putting up a LOL every day. Today, that means you guys are lucky too, because you get two UNCLE LOLs! (Same pic, different crops, different captions, couldn't decide which was better.)

(I am so going to use up my upload limit. Is there an upload limit?)

ETA: Pic from [livejournal.com profile] illyushadarling, The Very Important Zombie Affair. "Bored nao" caption inspired by [livejournal.com profile] lolmac 's LOLHostage and LOLMental.

ETA2: Came back to upsize the pics, having figured out how, but the blasted thing doesn't seem to like having "Explosion soon pls" be 500x500. Grr.

Okay, this one started out as a bit of an in-joke, sort of a special thank-you to [livejournal.com profile] lothithil and [livejournal.com profile] lolmac for - well, general awesomeness really - but it sort of evolved, and I'm not really sure it makes sense that way anymore. The screenshot is from "The Children's Day Affair", if that helps any. (Oh, and many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] illyushadarling for the wonderful screencap!)
