Oh, what a wonderful find! And I for one like the title. Pictures at an Exhibition - a perfect description of the sort of slideshow of their lives you presented - and I like the album, too. This story was magnificent. Splendid. Just wonderful. I enjoyed every single moment of it from the beginning teasing (noli me tangere, sartorial splendor) through the lovemaking and into the perfect explanation of a canon I never was able to accept. Thank you so very much for this. I love it.

Impressive, and believable on so many levels. Which makes it the more touching.

Great story and I agree with the other reviewer who thinks it should be called "Chicken Noodle Soup" because the meaning of the actual title eludes me.
Thanks for sharing!

Kellie, what an absolutely lovely story. The "soup" device was inspired, as it was a marker for the progression in relationship of our favorite spies. Aslo, the dialogue was SPOT ON and gave me several great laughs. I could hear their voices so clearly in the banter. Very clever stuff. Keep on writiing! More...more... please!

While I do think "Return" handed us some difficult canon and while I still cannot make sense of it, this story does explain Illya's fashion career in an imaginative and informed way. There is also such terrific and witty dialogue throughout, wonderful LOL exchanges between the boys. Thank you for writing it.

Dear lord, Kellie, this is wonderful! I adore stories that mark the passage of time, and you've delivered a glorious one.
(Though I don't know why it's not called "Chicken Noodle Soup!")
