When we consider Valentine's Day, do we all go straight to a happy ending for our spy guys?  Do you long to write that epic romance that would give Solo and Kuryakin a warm and loving home for their post-UNCLE days?
How about a Happy Ever After Challenge?
We can go as mushy and romantic as we've ever dreamed possible.  Comic, euphoric or happy as a clam, let's go all out this Valentine's Day with stories that capture the giddy delights of true love.
Posting begins February 6 and runs through the 14th.  If it's too hot for Section VII you can post over on mfu_map_room but for this special day we're letting our AU fantasies roam free here on S7.
