    Summary

    The stigma against human augmentation has never lifted – not after the initial kinks in the operating software and hardware integrations resulted in some curious physical and personality…defects. Despite the lives it’s subsequently saved, the tests the procedures have passed, and the unending barrage of PR stunts and ad campaigns.

    None of that matters – God, the papers still refer to the riots – which had been in protest against the expense of post-op care and maintenance – as the ‘Rise of the Machines.’

    John had just been a kid at Uni when it all happened, hadn’t really been arsed to care, and then he’d swanned off to join the army. Somewhere in that time the landscape had changed, and the first recipients of botched augmentations had stopped being victims and become something altogether more sinister.

    And all the while, science had marched on, blissfully ignorant – or at least willfully so – continuing to innovate and improve.

    And then John had gone and got himself shot, and science had taken him in like an overbearing mother, like a charity case, and hadn’t taken ‘no’ for an answer, hadn’t wanted ‘no’ for an answer –

    And John hadn’t wanted to die.

    Summary

    Trigger, from the Dutch trekken — to pull or draw.

    Bond didn’t know the woman who screamed. He could care less about the idiot of a cabbie who’d nearly clipped her. The scattering of brightly-coloured store packages from the woman’s arms would perhaps have been entertaining, if he was in place to to be entertained. In fact, if Bond hadn’t been locked in paralysing, consuming fear, he probably would have been deeply amused at the woman kicking the cab’s bumper in retaliation for scaring her so thoroughly.

    Fucking trigger. Fucking pull.

    It’s in the way Sherlock prowls the flat after they both return – John from just a few miles of London pavement away, and Sherlock from God knows how many thousands of miles and lies away. And two years.

    They both come back from two years away.
