    Summary

    Anyone with any sense was at least a little afraid of Q. He wasn’t afraid of ruining your career if you got in his way, or teased him about his age, or even switched the coffee machine to decaf (a criminal offense in Q branch). Beneath his youthful face and rumpled, if technically fashionable, clothing, he had a heart of steel and no reason for sympathy.

    If you were smart, you stayed away, kept your head down, and minded your own business.

    James Bond was not known for making smart decisions.

    Or: The Evolution of a Quartermaster. (In which Q hacks and reads and breaks again and again.)

    Summary

    You are thirteen, and the first piece of poetry you read - that you really read, not just skim over for class - is Sylvia Plath.

    Part of the "Apollo and Ares" series, but can be read as a oneshot. No knowledge of Being Human strictly necessary for this one.

    Summary

    I needed to reevaulate my logic. I needed to go home and rethink my life. I snorted at the thought of Obi-Wan meets mafia. I needed to rethink the thinking of using starwars quotes when getting shot at by the mafia, while standing on a tiny ledge.

     

    Clint Barton wasn't always the good guy. We ignore that, or most of us do. My prompt question was what made him change?

    The title is from a song by Paramore.

    Summary

    The Germans have a word to describe the chronic affliction many of us suffer from, that insistent urge to be somewhere out there and not here: "Fernweh". It's the opposite of being homesick; instead, it's a pining to be not-home, to be away, way away, because that's where you feel at home.
    --Joe Robinson
