I think it is a gen story, but I'm not at all sure.
FOUND BY frau_flora! See Comments!!
This has been driving me mad for a while.
As far as I can remember Napoleon is pre CEA & posted to London UNCLE. His "friends" there bet him he can seduce any blonde & the blond they choose is Illya. I think Illya isn't in Section 2 & Napoleon's never met him before. It all goes pear shaped & Napoleon betrays Illya's trust really badly.
Then years later when Napoleon is CEA at New York, Illya's assigned to be his partner. He's never forgiven Napoleon & never lets him forget it.
It was quite a long story & I have no idea where I read it. I've tried File 40 & Chrome & Metal, but can't find it.
Any assistance would be hugely appreciated. Thank you.
EDIT: Found it!!!
Quite some time ago I have read a fanfiction on AO3. I think it had multiple chapters or it was a part of a series.
I can't remember how it started but some pieces are stuck in my mind. I remember it started as a one-sided love from Napoleon. I think he even told Illya but he turned him down and then I specifically remember a scene where they are at a hotel (maybe) and Illya is drunk and tries to hit on Napoleon, telling him he would sleep with basically everything that moves so why won't he sleep with him now. Napoleon then slaps him and tells him that with Illya it would never be like that.
I know it's not much and basically it tells nothing but I can't seem to find it. If someone knows name of the fanfic, could you please write the name in the comment below? I am really desperate.
I am looking for some stories, but not any one story in particular. Rather, I am looking for any good hurt/comfort stories where Illya is the one injured/sick/whatever and Napoleon is the one offering the comfort. I know there's a lot of them out there and I've read some, but was wondering if any of you had specific recommendations for stories and where to find them. I love angst as well.
Thanks so much in advance!
