fic recs: Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015)

I watched this movie a couple of months ago and then went on a fic binge. My heart's desire is lots of Illya angst, so this recs list definitely leans that way.

The Where the Heart Is Affair by [ profile] arysteia
Illya/Napoleon, 3k. Comfort sex after Illya gets bad news, in a relationship that's been FWB up until now. Quality feelings!

A Literary Manifesto by [ profile] allthekingsmen
Illya/Napoleon, 7k. Illya through time, via books. Great character study, good angst towards the end, where despite a shared language Illya and Napoleon totally fail to understand each other for a while.

Two Men, Crossing the Street by [ profile] merle_p
Illya/Napoleon, 8k. The team is security for an exchange of spies, and Napoleon gets some insight into just how disposable KGB spies are.

The End Where We Begin by [ profile] Ingu
Illya/Napoleon, 22k. Illya kills an American spy in Zurich. Three days later, he’s staring into the face of a dead man standing in his hotel room. I really enjoy the development of their relationship after Napoleon dies, and how all Illya's repressed feelings rise slowly to the surface.

Six Sentence Sunday is a writing thing where, on Sunday, you post six sentences from an unfinished work. It can be a new fic, a new chapter of a WIP, or even something you’re not sure you’ll ever post. 

Choose an excerpt from any section (and it doesn’t have to be six sentences) and post it, letting people know what it belongs to or indicating that it’s something you’re working on. 

Below are the first few lines of an MCU Bucky/Nat fic (??) I started for the Body Talk porn battle thing before I realized it had a deadline. I find both Bucky and Nat hard to get a read on, so I'm not sure why I thought writing porn of them would be easy, but anyway!!! I have 1100-ish words now.

“Did we do this before?” Bucky asks.

Romanoff’s in his lap, fingers tangled in his hair, mouth hot against his neck; she stills. “You don’t remember?” she says, in that voice full of smoke that’s drawn him from the first time he heard it. Well. The last first time. It pulled him to the training mat again and again to try himself against her. They sparred barefoot, empty-handed. Wordless. But today when they finished—six to her and four to him, though sometimes it was the other way around—she left her hand on his bicep, the one with skin. He’d followed her to her bunk without a word.
