leupagus: tic-tac-toe
“How do you practice that sort of thing, anyway?” Gaby asked, drawing a circle on the broad sheet of Solo’s back with her thumbnail, digging in just hard enough to leave the curve of reddened skin. Across from her, on the other side of where Solo was making vaguely disapproving (although not discomfited) noises, Ilya squinted at her.

Illya finally asked, "What is the psychological term for the successful defense mechanism? The transformation of energies towards an alternative goal?"

"Like, say, world domination?" Napoleon eyed his partner suspiciously. "Are you psychoanalyzing THRUSH kingpins again?"

Subtle, precisely written, and full of glorious, glorious banter.

Illya Kuryakin is chosen as the first Soviet representative to UNCLE.
