I've recently discovered MFU fan fic and you are now one of my fave authors. This story is very well told, fits the characters beautifully and is truly touching
Thanks for sharing!

*gulps* Just rediscovering how delicious this is, beautifully paced and one of the most plausible "get-them-out-of-the-field" scenarios I've read, abjuring as it does the usual age-related retirement. (One suspects they'd be unlikely to make old bones in any case). Lovely. Thank you for this.

Wow, I'm warm all over. I thought that was amazing. I liked Ilya' disorintation, expertly done with the description of the eleveator as a small box. Your device was horribly real and the - Napoeon's wait for a 'human' gesture from someone was very professional. It's great when the agents are shown as pros, someone you can really respect. And the decision to pull them from the field was imminently logical, as was all the story. I adore it.

Boy, that opening line just grabs you and draws you in!

Thank you so much for this lovely story, ChannelD. I consider it a most beautiful Christmas gift. What could be better than a story containing intense hurt, intense comfort all wrapped up in the enduring love of Napoleon and Illya?
Your writing as allows, is stellar. Napoleon and Illya are at the height of true love and devotion. It's an addiction that I can't possibly get enough of!
Congratulations on having written yet another, tender, beautiful story. I loved every word of it!

This is very good. It has some fine passages and though quite horrific, it provides a suitable payoff for the intensity of the experience our boys are put through. Neither agent should be expected to remain in the field after such trauma and you gave the right ending in that respect.
I like also the parallel drawn between the UNCLE psychiatrists and the torturers. It was effective and not at all overdone.
I also enjoyed the close observation of small moves and details that lead quietly to dramatic changes. Drama without drama, or as Bruce Lee put it "Fighting without fighting".
Thanks for the pleasure :)

Poor Illya, it was so right of Napoleon to take care of him. Every thing changing for the better. Nicely done.

Oh, this is lovely.How very true that the feelings that Illya and Napoleon have for each other are what make it "real". I really enjoyed this, thanks for sharing it with us!
