Drabble: The Han from U.N.C.L.E.

Happy birthday to reddwarfette


Here is a tiny birthday ficlet. A little piece of drabbling insanity inspired by a coincidence of names in two non-Whedonverse fandoms. 100 words, rating G.


The Han from U.N.C.L.E.


“Mr. Solo, I have a mission for you,” Mr. Waverley said. “It appears that T.H.R.U.S.H. agents are plotting to divert the Gulf Stream.” His eyes turned to Solo’s companion and his eyebrows shot up. “Good heavens! You are extremely disheveled today, Mr. Kuryakin. Apparently you have been neglecting to shave. And you are not your usual urbane self either, Mr. Solo.”

In a galaxy far, far, away Solo raised his eyebrows. “This doesn’t seem quite like the usual U.N.C.L.E. mission.”

Illyia nodded. “I agree, Napoleon, but it’s definitely urgent. How on Earth did T.H.R.U.S.H. manage to build a Death Star?”

And a self-pimp; yesterday I posted my Witch story for the watchersdiaries ficathon. If you like my historical stories and you missed this one then go and check out Days of No Trust.

Breaking news: I've just found out that it's been nominated in the 'Supernatural' category at the Fang Fetish Awards. I'm absolutely thrilled to bits about that! I have a suspicion as to who might have nominated me; thank you very much!

Hey buddy, just dropping in to say thank you for the birthday wishes. They are much appreciated and congrats on the nomination, you deserve it :)

ETA: Oh my lord, is that ficlet for moi? Lol, hilarious!

Yes, it was for you (inspired by the Star Wars conversation on your LJ). Thanks!

Oh good grief!

Reminds me I really must write a post-series Man From Uncle / BtVS crossover with Nikki Wood at some point - she'd only be about ten during the show, but the organization was based in New York and Solo and Kuryakin carried on living there, I think. So far I've had her meet Travis McGee and Rorschach, some other 60s-70s characters might be fun.

Kojak? Barney Miller? (I loved that show).

And wasn't 'Police Squad' set in New York? Okay, it was a little later, but it is fairly timeless.

I bet she'd have crossed tracks with Cagney and Lacey, probably before they got out of uniform.

Somehow that remark started me off on a somewhat femmeslash tack...

Well, Chris was always up for new experiences...

Good grief. Mr Waverley can't tell Illya and Chewie apart.

Wonderful - and of course T.H.R,U,S,H. mustn't be allowed to keep the Death Star.

Ilya Chewiebakin.

Of course now my mind has spun off onto a different tack - Illyria Kuryakin!

Oh please, please, yes!
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: September 3rd, 2006 11:55 am (UTC) (Link)
Your wish is my command. It's up now; "The Mysterious Sarcophagus Affair".

That was hilarious! Although in cases like this I always wonder how many younger readers scratch their heads, mumbling, "Huh?"

Congrats on the nomination!

Thank you!

I never worry about the age of the readers. They'll either get it or they won't. And a lot of us seem to be the right age.
ozma914 From: ozma914 Date: September 3rd, 2006 10:43 am (UTC) (Link)

the right age

Yes, and in addition I'm constantly surprised by the young people who *do* get the decades old pop references. Of course, the nostagia craze has hit had in recent years, which probably makes a difference.

Re: the right age

DVDs and 1,000 channel satellite TV with an infinite appetite for recycling old material.

Thanks for the ficlet. I was a major Man from UNCLE fan back when the show was on TV.
