This is the most beautiful portrayal of a friendship I have ever read anywhere. Your metaphor is one I shall always have to remember. Thank you.

I'm new to leaving reviews, but I have to tell you, as someone who watched MFU from the original time it was on- you do a beautiful in-depth job with them. Quite the deep thinker as well, aren't you. Thanks.

A wonderful, wonderful look at the friendship of Napoleon and Illya. The usage of the elements of physics was brilliant! The story was also a beautifully realized view of how U.N.C.L.E. turned out. I need to look for your other stories. Very glad you posted this one on !

Found your archive of stories elsewhere and devoured them all greedily instead of waiting for them to appear here.
I enjoyed this story immensely both times, though I read it more slowly this time through. Excellent IK POV, and in particular the use of physics to understand and explain his partnership & friendship with NS.
Many excellent turns of phrase, included by not limited to:
'In hell, Napoleon would keep the itinerary and I would choose the ski resort'
'If it is the image of shining nobility that attracts us, recruits us, seduces us to join U.N.C.L.E., it is something else — deep, dark, and vaguely unclean — that keeps us in The Game'
What I found particularly believable is how Peyton-Smythe escaped and made our heroes look foolish. Of course, he met his fate at the hands of Thrush, and that neatly tied in the Angelique interaction.

Wow, holy mackeral, I think this may be my favourite U.N.C.L.E. story of all time. Thank you so much for writing it.

Thank you for posting this here. I fear that the M rating will hide it from some potential readers who would enjoy it - it is hardly a typical "M".
I've read this before a long time ago and appreciate being reminded to reread it. Your UNCLE universe is plausible and multi-layered, and your fleshing out of the two heroes manages to build believable on the relatively scant evidence from the tv show to add a lot of depth without altering them.
This story explores the issues of trust and values and reveals that NS and IK have pretty honorable cores. I really like how IK dealt with his initiation - not wanting to be rushed into something - but willing to subscribe on his own terms. NS may appear to be more "one of the boys" but he is a pretty independent thinker himself.
