    Summary

    Grandmother ruled Gir Niajra, and always had.

    Jummai felt certain this was so, mostly because it was impossible to imagine otherwise: anyone, anyone at all, seated so comfortably on that great golden throne except Grandmother? Anyone who could look or speak with such authority, to whom so many great and worthy people bowed down? No—only Grandmother. It had always been Grandmother, and it always would be.

    Then Grandmother died; and there was a war.

    (Or: Jummai is a princess without a throne—but she has no intention of leaving to others what is rightfully hers. She needs a wife with an army, and gets one; but her wife seems impervious to her tactical charm, she keeps making mistakes, and her cousin still wants her dead.)

    Summary

    When Jainan arrived on Iskat to represent his home planet in a diplomatic marriage to Imperial Prince Taam, he was naïve enough to hope the match would work. Taam knew better. Five years later, his confidence shattered, Jainan is released when Taam dies in an accident, only to be faced with another marriage to help salvage his treaty. Jainan understands how the real world works now; but Prince Kiem - the cheerful, scandal-prone darling of the Iskat celebrity magazines - keeps breaking all the rules he's learned.

    Summary

    Someone is trying to break into her flat through the window in Q’s sitting room, and Q squints at the shadowy figure on her phone screen. There’s something familiar about that figure, the poise and grace with which the person moves, as is the angle at which Q is viewing the scene from – as if Q has witnessed this person doing something similar a dozen times before, over a surveillance camera.

    Then the figure lifts her head and glances around the room, her gaze almost but not quite looking into the cameras as if she can guess where they are.

    Q is out of her bedroom and down the corridor in a flash, and when she stumbles into her sitting room there Bond is.

    "What the hell." It's not a question, but Q figures the way she's phrased it works well enough: What the hell are you doing, and what the hell are you doing here.

    Bond flashes her a devil-may-care smile. "It's been awhile, Q."

     

    (Canon fic, with the AU element that Bond and Q have always been ladies. In which a former Double-O agent and the current quartermaster learn to navigate the grey spaces of a relationship previously founded on professional grounds. Set after the events of Spectre; all Craig!Bond canon applies)
