The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Season 2: “The Cherry Blossom Affair.”
Superspy Illya Kuryakin hopes no one noticed him attempting to break into a shop with an unlocked door.
There are reasons why I love this show :D
Huge thanks to everyone for your comments and the great suggestions for how to celebrate the MFU 50th! I’ve gathered the ideas together, and arranged them into ticky boxes—because who doesn’t like ticky boxes :) Three categories, and you can tick as many boxes as you like in each category. And…
We’re voting on how to celebrate the MFU 50th Anniversary this September. Come on over and tick a few boxes. 50 Years, guys!! Time to Party :)
How I Would Paint Happiness
Something sudden, a windfall,
a meteor shower. No—
a flowering tree releasing
all its blossoms at once,
and the one standing beneath it
unexpectedly robed in bloom,
transformed into a stranger
too beautiful to touch.
Sometimes I hear people talk about “fanservice” as if it is a moderately new thing in media, and to them I say: have some Illya Kuryakin in a white-and-gold burnoose on a white Arabian stallion.

An ode to cats, both bold and fair.
For some, black cats are luck gone bad.
And the long-haired white too pretty.
