Since most of my activity here nowadays seems to be me writing Man from UNCLE meta or fic on every topic under the sun, I figured it was time to make a proper masterpost of everything I've posted here or to various comms.

Most of these links go to LJ, though there are a few at the end to odds and ends I've posted to tumblr too.

Fic

  • UNCLE slashfic recs masterpost – [LJ Mirror]

  • My fic:
    • Fatale
      Pairing: Napoleon/Illya
      Summary: Napoleon’s weakness for femme fatales has never been one of the more ambiguous facets of his sexuality. (Or, a world in which Illya began his career on the wrong side of the law certainly isn’t one where Napoleon is any less likely to wind up in bed with him.)
      Rating: NC-17
      Word Count: 6,630
      Notes: Alternate universe, contains gun-kink and some bondage

    • A Unified Theory of UNCLE, in four parts
      Pairing: Napoleon/Illya
      Summary: In a world where the occasional well-placed enemy mole or major security breach is simply a matter of course, a handful of UNCLE's most sensitive operational directives have never been committed to paper at all.
      Rating: PG
      Word Count: 28,544
      Characters: Napoleon, Illya, Waverly, with appearances by Angelique, Ursula Alice Baldwin, Mark Slate, Gemma Lusso and "Wanda"
      Notes: Effectively a mix of elaborate crack theories and historical trivia built around a faintly ridiculous amount of flirting, fluff and prolonged UST

    Resources

    • The Man from UNCLE – Complete Season 1-4 subtitles – [LJ Mirror]
    • Ripped from the DVDs, available in text format. Not as good as proper episode scripts as the lines lack attribution, but handy for checking dialogue in a hurry.

    • Complete production credits spreadsheet – [LJ Mirror]
    • So, I started making a spreadsheet to get my head around which of the recurring cast showed up when, and got a bit carried away. Set up to be sortable either by episode airdate or original production order, covers shooting dates, air+rerun dates, directors, writers, and pretty much all the other credits available for import. Should be useful to anyone trying to figure out chronology and recurring influences.

    • MGM Character bios – Napoleon, Illya and Waverly – [LJ Mirror]
    • The original source for a lot of details that made it into collective fanon without ever really coming up in the show, like Napoleon's yacht and Illya's love of jazz.

    • Original outlines for UNCLE and THRUSH – [LJ Mirror]
    • Published with some of the early promotional material, and packed with details that didn't make it into the show, like the existence of the Mask Club and some of the other entrances to UNCLE HQ. Includes scans of some early promotional articles.

    • The UNCLE Special – [LJ Mirror]
    • Scans of some articles with detailed technical info on the UNCLE gun.

    Welcome to the fandom! We're glad to have new members, especially a good writer.

    Thank you for a terrific overview. I am most looking forward to seeing those fic ideas. It might be cheek from someone who can't write a word, but if you can fic half as well as you meta, they'll be very fine.

    All the meta is admirable, but I'd like to especially yay what you write about S4, which says what I feel (as overview) better than I could. I'd like to add that nonhumans seemed very unfortunate, unlike S1 Fox and Hounds.

    Most fans would probably advise against sitting through GfU, but if you ever care to give a small appendix about that; or indeed on any subject, this one would be interested.

    Well, as I mentioned in the comment above I do have one fic (http://archiveofourown.org/users/rallamajoop/works?fandom_id=4405466) posted already! I did actually link it to [livejournal.com profile] muncle and was there looking for a beta a little while before too, though I guess not everyone saw it/made the username connection.

    Gosh S4 is an awkward subject for me. >_< I know a lot of fans loved it and I'd be the last person to tell them they shouldn't, especially when it sure has inspired some excellent fic. But I personally found it such a slog it all but killed my love of the series dead for a while in the middle. :/ Such a painful exercise in producers confusing grimdark nihilism for maturity.

    I'd like to add that nonhumans seemed very unfortunate, unlike S1 Fox and Hounds.

    Do you mean in the sense of episodes like My Friend the Gorilla, The Abominable Snowman, The Tigers are Coming, The Birds and the Bees, The Bridge of Lions, etc? Not the best record, though I did enjoy Bow-Wow and Bat-cave despite their sillier elements, and even Tigers has its (ahem) redeeming factors.

    I did give GfU a quick try - or at least I watched the first episode and the Mother Muffin Affair. I wasn't exactly blown away and its reputation turns me off a lot, but I did write down a few paragraphs worth of thoughts at the time. Will have to see if I can track them down.

    Actually, I did follow the link. But I don't have a taste for PWP, and I'm afraid I backbuttoned as soon as I saw the warning for gunkink (Thank you for putting it.) Nonetheless, I'm sure plenty will like it.

    Thanks for replying, and looking forward to any future contributions, fic or meta.
