|tinturtle||01:11 am - Seeking recs -- Illya as comforter|
So the majority of hurt/comfort fics in this fandom cast Illya as the hurt character and Napoleon as the comforting character. What are people's favorite fics that do it the other way around?
Not many examples spring to mind from among my favorites (hence this post). Part of AconitumNapellus's Ice and Fire definitely fits the bill. There are also shadings of this dynamic in Cord Smithee's Spiderweb and its companion All the Kasha They Could Eat by Jest. Nix's The Mirror, Mirror Affair may also be a good fic for the list, though I've only read bits of that one.
What others have you folks enjoyed?

|selyndaep||06:30 pm - Looking for first time slash fic|
I read this a while ago, but can’t find it. It was a fun story where Illya enters the Canteen and goes over to Napoleon to say something about a rule being rescinded before giving him the mother of all kisses (to the shock/amusement of the other UNCLE personnel)!

Does anyone remember the name of the story where Napoleon has been captured by Thrush and taken Capsule B; he escapes and Illya finds him on his boat?

Hey, I'm looking for fic for the 2015 MFU movie - Illya and Napoleon are captured and being interrogated, and one of their captors shoots Illya in the knee. He's about to shoot Illya again but Napoleon gets free first and takes out the baddies. If anyone knows the fic I would be so indebted!
Also , any recs for hurt Illya stories are loved. :)

|tinturtle||12:47 am - Seeking Recommendations -- Queer-themed Non-slash|
I'm looking for recommendations of stories in which Illya or/and Napoleon is gay or bisexual, but they are not involved with each other AND neither wishes that they were (at least not to the point that it's a main theme of the fic).
Examples I know of are:
Salem by Evan Nicholas
The Blind Eye Affair by Evan Nicholas
Betrayal and Redemption by Xanthippe
[The first two are favorites of mine. The last is not but does fall into the category.]

|polyphony1||11:33 am - Lost story|
Hello everyone! I'm new to this fandom, although I've been writing and reading fan fiction on ao3 for years, and I'm completely blown away by the sheer wackiness - it's fabulous! I'd be very grateful for your assistance. I'm looking for a particular gen story, quite long, set (I think) in a New Orleans Thrush satrapy. The central character is the head man's adolescent daughter who learns by eavesdropping on her father that he had her mother tortured to death some years ago. The girl "cries her last cry" (I remember that turn of phrase) and sets out to destroy her father and the rest of her extremely unpleasant family. Cue Napoleon and Illya in search of the latest nefarious Thrush weapon. Identical twin bar tenders and a drug that compels emotions feature. There's an amusing scene when the girl throws her father off the scent by announcing her and Napoleon's intended marriage (she's only about 14). The story ends with Illya finding a useful semantic loophole in his emotional coercion and Napoleon being hit on by both of the twins (shenanigans happen offstage however!)
I hope someone recognises something in the above as it's been driving me nuts for the last couple of weeks. Thank you in advance.

|fitzgeraldella||10:11 pm - Illya shoots Napoleon to get the disk|
I'm not looking for a particular fic, just trying to find out if there are any fics out there where Illya actually shoots Napoleon, or shoots at Napoleon, or just tries to retrieve the disk from him in that hotel room.
Also, any fics where one of them has to turn against the other for some reason would be welcome!

|pfrye||04:01 pm - UNCLE TV|
Can't find a story I've read and enjoyed several times. Not sure who it's by, the title etc. In it Napoleon is having lunch in the commisary with an old CIA friend talking over old times. In their conversations NS discovers that an old co-worker (and partner to his old friend) was killed by the KGB while in Berlin. Illya enters and the CIA guy goes nuts as IK was the KGB agent who killed his partner. The story follows the aftermath of that revealation. It's a short story but quite good. Does anyone know what this is?

|susieq3282||01:47 am - Napoleon has Altzheimers|
Napoleon is in a nursing home and every week Ilya visits him and they play chess even though N. doesn't know him. The kick in the pants comes at the end when Illya leaves. He's standing outside the home and pulls out a note giving him the directions to home. It's terribly sad. I read it several years ago and would like to read it again.

|vaguefuture||12:20 am - Napoleon thought dead fic|
Hi, first time posting so I hope I'm doing this right. I'm looking for a fic where Napoleon is captured by some baddies and experimented on. The doctor injected some kind of paralyzing agent in him a few minutes before Illya stormed in and killed everyone. Illya discovers Napoleon's still figure on a slab, whose eyes are open. He tries waking him up but of course, Napoleon can't even move his eyes to indicate he was alive and conscious. Napoleon can only watch as Illya starts breaking down, thinking the other man dead. Illya was cloaking stuff like "He's still warm," thinking if he'd been faster, he could've save Napoleon. Illya called the other "Napolyusha" or something along those lines. Then, of course, the Russian figured out Napoleon was just drugged and took care of Napoleon until he regained the use of his limbs. I specifically remember Illya taping Napoleon's eyes shut and reading to him a book of some kind.
I remember so many details but the keywords produced nothing for me. I know I read in AO3, and it's no longer than 10K words probably. The whole fic is entirely in Napoleon's POV.
Knowing me, it's at least pre-slash Napollya.
TLDR: Solo has been drugged by a paralyzing agent and Illya initially thinks he's dead.
Any help is appreciated! :D

|tinturtle||08:50 pm - File 40 Archive|
So...I've spent parts of the last two days downloading and organizing as many fics as I could from File 40's Wayback Machine captures. I did this because I was frustrated with the poor searchability of the content, because I was afraid it might disappear in the future, and because I wanted to avoid thinking about my life.
If anyone else would like to download the archive I made, you can find it here: http://mathbeing.net/downloads/MUNCLE/
I figure that the content is safer when more people keep a copy. Some of the fics found on File 40 were much earlier than those found on other sites. It would be a shame to lose them.
Feel free to tell me if sharing this is unethical or against policies or off-topic.
UPDATE: The latest version of the archive is version 5.1. I've corrected the encoding of more than 50 files, most of which were showing without any quotation marks. I have reunited two stories with their illustrations as well. (Also, please note that the archive file has moved from its original URL. The link above is correct.)

I read a slash story years ago about Illya when he was in Cambridge - he had been approached by a professor and after he reported to his KGB/GRU? handlers that this had happened they sent a "trainer" to instruct him on how to proceed with this. His experience is what made him later in his life desire Napoleon. Does anyone know what this story is or where I can find it????

I think there are two or three stories that include an OC Damien who is Waverly's son out of wedlock. These are slash fics. Anyone know what these are?

|tinturtle||04:13 am - Found: Illya rebuffs an official in a hospital|
I'm looking for a very short fic that I read recently. It may have been new when I read it, but I'm not sure. The plot is roughly as follows:
Illya and Napoleon have just finished a mission in a Eastern Bloc country during which Napoleon was injured. Napoleon is now in the hospital and a local official arrives wanting to interrogate him. Illya manages to turn the official away. I think the story is told from Napoleon's point of view, as he overhears the interaction.
