I can't believe this story has never received a comment, before now. I've read it a few times and don't know why I have never commented before. I thoroughly enjoyed it, even with all it's violence. Although I fast forward most of the slash. I do have a query: Why should we expect Napoleon, and Illya for that matter to be 'holier than thou' and not want the likes of fiends like Blanchard to be dead? Apart from getting information from him. I personally could have put a bullet in him, and his two goons. I know some clever person said "when dealing with monsters, be careful not to become one." But still and all, Blanchard? Some people ask to get dead. Great story, as with many of your others.
