    Summary

    “Bond,” he says, perhaps a little sleep-raspy while Q buries his nose in his collarbone.

    There’s a long, long pause, somehow brimming with tension, and then:

    “Bond, what the devil are you doing answering the Quartermaster’s phone at three in the morning?!”

    Oh.

    -

    Mallory finds out that 007 and the Quartermaster are sleeping together - literally and figuratively.

    Summary

    For a genius, there were certain things Q couldn't be trusted to do unsupervised, starting with anything at all, until he'd had his first cup of tea. Unfortunately, Q was very good at sneaking out of bed.

    Summary

    Five years ago, Commander James Bond of Her Majesty's Royal Navy left England in disgrace, escaping a court martial -- and what should have been a promising career in MI6 with Alec Trevelyan, his oldest friend. He becomes a mercenary, selling his military expertise to the highest bidder, though not once does he act against England or her interests.

    Now, new intelligence has possibly located Bond in the United States, and Alec is tasked with the mission to bring him back to MI6. But to do so will require a very unique type of field operative -- one Bond will never suspect.

    Enter Aidan Green, codename Q.

    Summary

    The kid stilled, his eyes going sharp in a way that made James want to reach for his weapon. He remembered he didn’t have one, then remembered he was talking to a 12 year old the size of a cocker spaniel and he didn’t need a weapon anyway.

    “Give me access to MI6’s computers and I could take over the world,” the boy said softly.

    “Not exactly what we’re trying to accomplish, but an interesting option all the same,” James said, pursing his lips. “What’s your name?”

    “Why?”

    “Because, if I’m going to recruit you that’s something I’ll need to know.”
    ***

    This is the origin story of Q/James Bond's relationship had they met quite a bit sooner in their MI6 careers. It is also a continuation/expansion of Jealous Gods, but it should make sense as a stand-alone piece. It will be formatted like Jealous Gods, going back and forth between present and past. Apologies in advance for any mistakes!

    Summary

    “He did my job for me, killing his master,” Bond said. “He got around his feet and tripped him down a flight of stairs. Leaving him to get blown up with the rest of them seemed a churlish way to repay him.”

    The cat chirruped agreeably, and washed a paw. Despite being brought from south Ireland in a bag, the feline looked well-cared for.

    “You brought me a cat. A murder cat, owned by your villain du jour.”

    In which Q is brought offerings of murder cats, keeps losing his pens to a certain kleptomaniacal agent, and is generally oblivious to/confused by Bond's attempts at catching his attention.
