I saw this article rec'd on a facebook page, so clicked on it and read it.  It's actually from 2007, so probably something a lot of people have seen before.  The thing that stood out to me was a couple of things Robert Vaughn said regarding the night he got the script on UNCLE.  He says he and a friend picked up a couple of 'floozies', and later mentions that again in reference to utilizing the charms he used to seduce them as an acting tool for portraying Solo.
I know he is a product of his times, and perhaps he didn't think referring to women as floosies sounded hypocritical alongside the very obvious reality of his own promiscuity (in this instance), but reading it I had a rather negative reaction to him and to his point of view.  All of this from a man who later says it didn't even bother him for the show to be cancelled because he was so wrapped up in the anti-war movement.
Again, a little self-centered considering a slew of people were put out of work with the cancellation of MFU.
Am I being a little too critical?  Maybe, and it doesn't keep me from being a fangirl for the show.  But it does tend to add weight to my preference for David McCallum as a real life person, based on the bits and pieces I know about him.
So, any thoughts on the subject?  Any rebuttals to my impressions of the article and what is reported there?  I'm curious, and I can forgive Robert Vaughn for his seemingly, to use a word that gets tossed around quite a bit, misogynistic attitude.  I'm sure he repented and changed his ways with age and maturity.

 A scary start to the day today with tornado warnings, severe thunder storm warnings...yikes.

Well here it is Saturday and that means it's time for Writer's and Reader's Choice!

What could be better than spending time with our favourite U.N.C.L.E. agents?

Showcase something you've written yourself which you're proud of, or which may have been missed. 
On the other hand, you could recommend a writer you have a passion for, or one which is relatively unknown.

 

So Writers and Readers, post links to your gen or gen-mature  MFU fics here in Section VII

The ABC Affair has had a great first two weeks, the stories are outstanding and the participation very encouraging.  Thanks to everyone who keeps churning out those ABC's.    We'll only have another week until the big Z, something I'm sure we're all looking forward to (and trying to figure out what to do with a Z).
Keep it up gang, it's going great so far.

Though this is a challenge in progress, there's a lot of great stories that have been posted so far.  I'd like to Rec the ABC Affair for your reading pleasure this weekend.

Day one of the challenge began on June 7th...

Click on the pic to take you to the first story posted or simple click on the tag 'abc affair'  to start at the present and work your way backwards though all the stories posted so far. Or you could just use the Archive and start with 6/7/2017.

Though this was a recently posted story, some of you may have missed it as it was a WIP that ran into some delays, in part due to my computer breaking.

So here it is in full...a pseudo murder mystery that pairs Napoleon Solo with a very diffeent partner, plus there's a few, surprise but brief crossovers as well.

Napoleon finds himself involved with some surprising 'bedfellows' while tasked to solve a good old fashioned murder mystery. This story has multiple (but brief) crossovers. It's not a super long read, just over 10,000 words.

Since everyone seems to be experiencing a heat wave, I thought I'd offer my view on how the guys from UNCLE weather one of their own. The link takes you to AO3.

This story is about a mission gone wrong for Illya. (When I first wrote this, back in October 2014, I received a review on fanfiction which said 'Illya doesn't fail!'.)
