The Waves of Change Affair
Rating: R for violence/torture, sexual innuendo and adult situations.
Like all works of fan fiction, the usual disclaimers about not owning the characters or making any profit from the work applies.
This is my first work of U.N.C.L.E. fan fiction and it came about when thinking of how I might want a new series based on U.N.C.L.E. to be presented. Thus it is set in a current timeframe, with Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin of appropriate ages for that. Both are now policymakers within the organization; yet their past lives as field agents always remain to color the present. This story deals with one incident that illustrates just that point.
As an additional note here: Though I do not like the lore handed down through THE RETURN OF THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E.: THE FIFTEEN YEARS LATER AFFAIR, I felt in this particular case to ignore it wouldn't be advisable. Thus, it is part of the agents' background in this story, but with a very different (and I hope more acceptable) take on the whys and wherefores of what happened at that point in their lives.
Finally I just want to note that I have no intention of making "further adventures" for the two new field agents introduced of necessity (after all, men in their seventies can't go around routinely shooting at bad guys) in this story.
And now on to the actual story...
