Steel, what are we going to do?

That’s a very good question.

Now would be a good time for Them to intercede.

I have a feeling that They are no more. The Transuranics have taken over.

Sapphire shot a fast look out of their hiding spot. We can’t stay here forever.

She waited for Steel to answer her, but her partner simply stared at the ground in front of him. He seemed so dejected. Steel did not like to lose.

Steel? Again, there was no response. “Steel?”

He looked at her, startled as if hearing her speak for the first time. Then he frowned. “Can’t you hear me?”

“No, can’t you hear me?”

Napoleon is hurt that Illya has a lover who isn't him. This is going to make for an uncomfortable plane ride. Written for MFUWSS Beta Challenge.

Napoleon slammed his front door shut with more force than was necessary. He wasn’t sure what bothered him the most: Illya having sex with another man or Illya not having sex with him.

That thought caught Napoleon mid-stride and he nearly stumbled into his coat rack. For a moment, he just stood there and weighed the thought. Why should what Illya did in his free time matter to him at all, sex or no sex? What did it matter if Illya didn’t find his own partner attractive enough to care about in that way?

And where the hell did that come from? Napoleon thought as he struggled out of his jacket. His shoulder holster followed and he enjoyed the heady few seconds of weightlessness the action of shedding his weapon allowed. In that moment, he felt as if he could fly.
