I enjoyed this so much. It was a riveting action/adventure story with some hot sex and hurt comfort thrown in. I was horrified for Napoleon and even knowing it was the gas it was still incredibly creepy to have the scarecrow step down from its perch. I love that you had Napoleon remember his training and his gun even in the depths of his delusions, and I like the girl agent too. I would not mind seeing her again. Your Illya's introspection was spot on, with him annoyed with himself for what he perceived as unprofessional behavior yet being too honest with himself to deny that he had enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing this.
