    Summary

    Jason Todd walked twelve miles down a dark highway away from Gotham City Cemetery. He was bloodied, beaten and exhausted from digging himself out of his own grave. Fortunately for him, two hunters driving down the same highway found him just in time.

    Summary

    There's an issue with Illya's cover, and he's not very pleased with the proposed solution. ...I finally caved and wrote a fake dating scenario. It starts somewhere innocent and takes a tumble down the trashbin (as my plot bunnies often do).

    Summary

    Following The Kiss That You Deserve, Illya begins to extricate himself from the KGB. But when things go wrong the whole team must decide how far they will go to save each other.

     

    (Note for Miss Fisher readers - Phryne appears as a cameo appearance in Chapter 9 and is referenced in 10-12, so this fic is TMFU focused. Also, it's set in the 1960s and characters have aged accordingly... not the usual Miss Fisher fare, I'm afraid!)

    Summary

    If Victoria went to check on Napoleon in his room after the break in at the satellite factory, wouldn't it make sense that she would send her goons to also check in on Illya and Gaby? The only option for a cover is to well... get undercovers. Smut with heart.

    Summary

    Illya snarls again, but he knows, he’s always known, that his life would end like this. He supposes the gun is a mercy.
    He just wishes he’d been braver.
     
    It's been over a year since Rome, since they stopped the world ending (and Napoleon didn't realise how often he'd have to do that now), since Napoleon made a choice and threw a watch across the room instead of pulling a gun. Since then, it's been one mission after another, and Napoleon and Illya have gone from reluctant partners to friends to possibly something more.
     
    Napoleon can’t even remember what they talked about. What he remembers is Illya sitting on his couch, a finger or two of vodka in his glass and an amused quirk to his lips. What he remembers is sitting opposite him in his armchair, suit jacket slung over the back and waistcoat unbuttoned. He rarely lets his persona drop, but around Illya he can’t seem to help it.
    What he remembers is making Illya laugh and thinking: Oh. How did I not see this coming?

    Now it might all be too late, and he didn't think it would end like this: Illya lying in the street, ash and blood and Napoleon's name on his lips.

    Excellent! Hasn't been updated since 2015, but it does have one of my favorite (utterly tragic but so well-done) backstories for Illya's KGB training. Haha, and Solo becomes a thief in part to live up to the words on his skin :D both of their backstories are great and I like the history created.

    Summary

    It isn’t that Illya has a fixation, not anymore than he can fixate on a particularly rooted splinter, or passive aggressive comments made by a colleague, or scabies. That’s what Napoleon Solo is from the moment they set eyes on one another: Under Illya’s skin.

    Summary

    Illya curled his lip, and walked into the bar, his spurs tapping on the scratched wood. No one bothered to waste the energy to study him, and he sat down at the bar without inviting comment, ordering a beer. The barman took his money without any real enthusiasm, and poured Illya a pint of barely drinkable warm beer. Illya tugged down the brim of his gray Stetson, hiding his eyes, and forced himself to take a sip. Thirst didn’t make the beer any easier to choke down, but Illya was here on business, and it was poor manners to shake the barman for information without actually first buying a drink.

    He unfolded a ragged piece of paper from the pocket of his jacket, smoothing it out on the counter. It was a Wanted poster, with a crude drawing of a man with a bandit mask and a white hat, and the faint hint of dark hair. There was no name under the poster, and only a curt description - six feet tall, male, broad shoulders, white, last seen in a black shirt and black pants, riding a gray horse. Wanted: For a couple of bank heists and a train robbery.

    Summary

    Napoleon stops looking at Illya, because that just makes him want to put his foot through the wall, and looks at his gun, which isn’t difficult, because it’s about an inch from his face, and this close he can smell the faint sweet spice of cleaning oil. Instead of looking at Illya — the lines of him held in anticipatory stillness; the bulk of him in the blue half-light — Napoleon looks at the balance of gun and silencer, the heavy slide and the curl of Illya’s fingers on the grip, the angle of his thumb, and waits.

    Hahaha, this was awesome! Illya gets chosen to be the honeypot and Gaby talks him through the seduction, haha.

    ***
    "Can I offer you a word of helpful advice, Peril?"

    "No."

    They're supposed to be waiting for Gaby's signal for extraction and monitoring for any unexpected complications from the guards but Illya is surprised that Solo has lasted this long in the van without attempting conversation.

    "You're going about this all wrong," Solo continues. "Women like to be wooed, even strong, independent ones like the lovely Miss Teller."

    "Please do not talk to me about women."

    "You have been holding onto that steering wheel so tightly for the past hour that I'm surprised you still have sensation in your hands."

    Illya looks down at his white knuckles and quickly loosens his grip before dropping his hands altogether like they're on fire. Solo takes the moment to bring up the fake engagement ring that Gaby still wears around her neck.

    "A gift," Illya offers with a shrug. He is so massive that it simply looks like he's shifting the weight of the world from one shoulder to another.

    "Oh? And where is my gift?"

    "I let you live," he answers darkly, already tired of the other man's voice. "Regretting this now."

    Summary

    A set of stairs, five minutes and one picked lock later has him in the room, facing the safe. Napoleon has dealt with safes like this one before, and his methods are not exactly what the agency teaches -- nor, indeed those taught by the KGB, Illya had told him, scorn for Napoleon's previous vocation clear in his voice, their methods usually involve drilling -- but Napoleon can crack into a safe in half the time they can, the only issue is the delicacy required. He's good at delicacy, when the situation calls. He's good at most things -- Illya had scoffed, said "I'm better", walked away.

    Summary

    The plague had come out of the cold north. That part, everyone could agree on. Whether it was still active in the snow, or whether it had run its course was still a matter of academic debate, one that Napoleon had little interest in, up until he’d decided on this madcap scheme. He watched his breaths turn into steam in the chill for a moment longer, then he stepped through an unmarked door in a brick wall, heading down a narrow spiral stairway.

    Summary

    Illya didn’t have any microphones or trackers so Gaby would hear the happy news about her newly decided engagement and marriage only when he returned to HQ. Illya could already imagine her unbelievable expression, that little confused laugh. Then she would frown and ask was he being serious. But if this was the only way into the Russian mafia, it had to be done. And it was only a fake wedding. How hard that could be?

    Summary

    The KGB had impeccable timing. Illya had been called away within twenty-four hours of their mission concluding in London, which meant from the moment she’d kissed him, they’d had precisely three days to figure out what the hell they meant to each other. And one of those days had been spent staking out a godforsaken warehouse in Shadwell.

    Summary

    “Ah, the true question of the ages,” Napoleon sighs. Tipping his head back sends a cascade of sunlight down the column of his throat, pooling at his shirt collar where the shape of an oil heiress’ mouth is still bruised into the skin. “Why are we here? Why do bad things happen to good people?”

    “Why do you dress as a woman beneath your clothes?”

    Summary

    From the kink meme prompt: Illya obviously has a protective streak for Gaby, even after she's found to not be the "innocent" he thought she was. Sometimes, despite himself, that protective streak extends to Solo, too. This is obvious. It's the way they work.

    But one day, he's surprised to see Solo and Gaby bear their teeth on his behalf.

    I dunno, five times fic maybe? Or just a scenario where once, Illya was treated like the last chocolate chip cookie on the plate instead of a sledgehammer. ♥

    Read and commented through ch 1. Fun merging of the two stories, with wonderful little breadcrumbs, like Ana Teller (wife of the empresses's physician) leaving the palace during the riots, and a dog named Kuryagin.
