    Summary

    As Aramis rises to his feet, body swaying towards hers and eliminating that small step she'd taken backwards, Anne thinks she can hear her heartbeat under her skin. She leans into him when he reaches for her, calloused fingers stroking her back through the thinness of her gown.

    And then she can hear nothing. The warmth of his breath against her face before he presses his mouth to hers blocks out any other thought that could be spared for the noises elsewhere. It is a blessing to not hear those outside who wish to kill her. It is a blessing to not think of why she is here in the first place.

    Summary

    Illya sits on the floor of his mostly-unfurnished living room. It’s dark out, somewhere in that time of night when most people are asleep or enjoying themselves immensely, and Illya finds himself doing neither. He holds the cardboard album cover in his hands, the lithographic trumpet staring up at him, and contemplates the unexpected direction of his life. He has records. He has magazines. He has five suits.

    “Have you ever thought of sprucing this place up a little?”

    He also has Leona. Unlike his smattering of possessions, she is non-returnable.

    (Or: Napoleon Solo has always been a woman, just like Illya has always been a Soviet. No one forgets either fact easily.)

    Summary

    Napoleon has been drugged by THRUSH, and is experiencing the excruciating pain of withdrawal. THRUSH is closing in on their position, and will arrive by morning. To distract his mind from the pain, Napoleon asks Illya to tell him something about his life back in the USSR. Illya reluctantly obliges. Thus begins the story of Illya's Uncle Boris, and the marvelous night that changed his life.
