Do the AUs - in their attempt to focus on the romance - end up flattening the relationship? *ponders*

I'd say they sometimes wind up flattening the characters, which I guess in turn flattens the relationship. In canon, both Nikita and Michael had a lot more to deal with, both separately and jointly, than their romance, but I think many times AU dispenses with everything else, or at least renders non-romance elements extremely peripheral. This isn't always true, of course, but it does happen. But while that might flatten the characters somewhat, I still find them recognizable as themselves.

However, I can't even *imagine* a TR-focused AU story that would focus so exclusively on romance -- I think for the characters to be recognizable it would have to be more a story of intrigue, a struggle for power, etc., with any romantic aspects serving as a sideplot.
