It's in PDF format, so accessible no matter your machine type. However, it is of course large in filesize (about 5 MB), so getting it archived anywhere is a bit tricky. The original intent was to post it to MFU Archive, but as it turns out it's too large to use the standard user upload engine for that. So I have a request in to Lisa regarding providing her the file directly to input on that site.
In the meanwhile I have made the Bible accessible from my own website, though you will need to follow these instructions to get it.
1) Right-click (not double-click) on the following link: MFU Writers Bible
2) Select "save target as..."
3) Choose the local directory on your computer where you want the file saved
4) Click the SAVE button
Once the file is downloaded, you will be able to access it from the saved copy on your machine.

Okay, it's in your hands now. Carry on.

Napoleon and Illya are sitting in a bar and a guy walks in. He immediately starts talking to no one in particular. Thrush or simply delusional?
Who makes the first move to silence the fellow?
The guy ...
Illya kneels down to investigate and finds...
A man is dead. Do our agents ...
Based on your answers, how does this end? Feel free to write a story based on this scenario.
Tomorrow is drabble day, and I'm thinking we might want to focus on Mark as a sort of memorial nod to Noel Harrison. I hope we'll have a nice turn out for a someone who is imbedded into the lore of MFU just as surely as the other two men.
Let's put a hint of Brit into our drabbles on Wednesday.
Carla Drosten, the head of Section VI (Security and Personnel), who was utilized in the MFU series episode THE WAVERLY RING AFFAIR, is featured in the story. I am putting in a footnote in my story stating the character was introduced in that episode of the series.
Some background for my particular question:
In my story Carla is responsible for my antagonist in the tale being assigned to Napoleon as a temporary assistant. I don't want to spoil the story by giving away too much, but the gist is that under normal conditions this particular employee would not have been assigned to such a position. Now Carla does have a perfectly reasonable personal justification for doing what she does (nothing to do with any possible Thrush connection). However, in THE WAVERLY RING AFFAIR it is ultimately revealed that Carla is connected with Thrush.
My story though takes place in 1963, a few years before the timeline of THE WAVERLY RING AFFAIR. And it did appear in that episode that Carla was vey much a trusted employee of U.N.C.L.E. and had been for some years. So whether her connection with Thrush was of long standing or not is up-in-the-air.
So my actual question:
Do I need to footnote that Carla in THE WAVERLY RING AFFAIR was revealed to have a connection with Thrush? Or leave it completely up to the reader to recall that she did and decide whether 1) what she does in my story has that ulterior motive? or 2) what she does has no motivation other than that she actually states to Illya in the story?
My gut reaction is not to do that footnote, but I did want to get a few opinions.
Napoleon Solo enters a room with an elegant redhead on his arm. The entire room is captivated, but who is it that garners most of the attention?
Illya Kuryakin enters a room with an armful of explosives. What garners the most attention?
Napoleon and Illya walk into a room with an elegant redhead and an armload of explosives. Where are they?
Who is the redhead?
Will the Elegant redhead choose a man? Who will it be?
Something gets blown up. What is it?
Someone ends up in Medical. Who is it?
And in the end...

How much emphasis do you, as a reader, place on canon?
As a writer, how important is referencing canon when constructing a story?
Can a story really be MFU if there is not some type of canon element?
Thanks to reapermum, mrua7, avirra and avrovulcan for their excellent entries.
We who write these stories like to create ambiance and circumstances to suit our attitudes and ... well, whatever. I had a passing thought about what might happen if there was a pile up of these situations. One such result follows...
