Man From UNCLE, tv series
gen or slash, PG for theme, ambiguously darkfic, 1.5k.

In their line of work, they never talked about certain things. That didn’t mean those possibilities weren’t something they faced every day.

Warnings: POSSIBLE DEATH FIC – AMBIGUOUS ENDING

Notes: This is a bit of darkfic, with an ambiguous ending. Not my normal sort of cup of tea, I’ll admit. I like happier endings. However, in the middle of a recent post by Rallamajoop (a marvelous piece reviewing the UNCLE tv series for the new viewer, going over premise, characters, the slash, the appeal, 50 years on), there’s a line about “not talking about it is simply how they deal with the ever-present threat that one or both of them could die in the line of duty”. It’s just one line out of a lot of meta about many, many things... but it stuck with me. I woke up with this ficlet running through my mind and while I normally redirect the darker ones into something lighter... after it persisted for the day, I decided it had to be written. Lighter fics coming another time. And, since the ending IS ambiguous... you can choose which way you want it to go. So it doesn’t have to be... that’s just one way it might go. As always, with them.

(Also, can be read as either gen or slash - just like the series ^^)
