31st-May-2012 09:31 am VID REC: Man from UNCLE/M:I - Spies n the House by dearratboy
It's been fun, but it's time to turn the wheel over to the next driver. I leave you with this month's video rec, which is a cross-over between Man From UNCLE and Mission Impossible

Vidder: dearratboy
Musical artist: Was (Not Was) - "Spy in the House of Love" 
Pairing: Napoleon Solo, Illya Kuryakin, Cinnamon Carter and Rollin Hand

Why this vid kicks ass: This snappy video mixes short clips from the two spy shows of the sixties. It's fast-paced and the montage flows together really well. For example, we may go from a shot of a woman removing her stocking for Napoleon and Illya to a shot of Cinnamon Carter's stocking-clad leg.

Musical artist: Was (Not Was)
Characters: Illya Kuryakin, Napoleon Solo, M:I Ensemble

Why this must be seen:

I missed cross-over day, so I'm giving you two for one on Vid Rec Day: an MFU/M:I fanvid crossover from [ profile] drworm. It's got a great song from Was(Not Was), "Spy in the House of Love", it's got footage from two icons of mid 60's spy chic, Man from UNCLE and Mission:Impossible (and man do the spies look good); it's got the impossibly elegant Barbara Bain. All is fair in love and war-- Spies in the House confirms our lingering suspicion that the two can have a lot in common.

Title: The League Extraordinaire
Fandom: The Man From UNCLE, James Bond, the Avengers, Our Man Flint, The Girl from UNCLE, Get Smart, Mission: Impossible, Modesty Blaise, I Spy, Savage, The Prisoner, Sherlock Holmes, Fu Manchu and Matt Helm (yes, all of them, seriously! I'm not going to tag all the fandoms because they won't all fit.)
Pairing: Emma Peel/John Steed, but no more than what you see on the show
Length: epic
Author: DarkMark
Author on LJ: Unknown
Author Website: Dark Mark's Page
Why this must be read:

This is basically the crossover spy adventure of truly epic proportions. I'm a sucker for intertextual references, but this story is the icing on the cake. I didn't even realize that it was possible to write so many characters so well, but DarkMark catches each of their voices perfectly while plotting a complex adventure with an old school villain worthy of our heroes' time. If you like old school spy shows and an author who captures the zeitgeist of the 60's, you simply must read The League Extraordinaire.

Title: The Daniel in the Lion's Den Affair by gm
Pairing: None

Why this must be read: Wonderful nostalgia. I wish I had been active in fan fiction back then. This fic shows how wonderful these two shows are for crossovers. I'm just starting to read gm's fic, but she has some great crossovers. It is a team fic and well representative of the characters.
