    Summary

    Q wonders, briefly, how James could possibly think this is an appropriate time to profess his undying love—or whatever the hell it is he’s attempting to do; though, frankly, the skeleton suit did make him blink a bit stupidly at his laptop—but then something explodes to his left, and Q heaves a long-suffering sigh and snaps at him for ruining everything good in the world. James laughs and carries on wielding his Walther like it isn’t the 7500th replacement that Q has thrown at him.

    Summary

    Sequel to: you’re a holy fool all colored blue.

    Home, for James, was once a shoulder holster in a foreign country, women he didn’t know and regularly forgot, the London skyline outside his window, a martini shaken just right, and a suit so sharp, marks sometimes cut themselves on his edges. Home, now, is a person, is pizza after a long day, an entire cabinet full of tea, soft pillows and a warm mouth across his shoulders—it’s still London, but home is a flat he shares, a bed where he fights for blankets, the permanent indent of a book spine resting against his ribs, and he’s finally done running away.

    Summary

    “You know, you’re not a very fun travel partner,” Q says. Really, how rude.
    “Most people would beg to differ,” Bond says. He’s sure Q will be able to figure out what he’s alluding to, but apparently it needs to be said out loud, because Q smirks, before he speaks again.
    “Oh. And what do you do with these people?”
    “I shag them,” Bond says. He’s not usually one to beat around the bush, when the question is this direct.
    Q, as expected, smiles like he already knew this would be the answer.
    “Well,” he says. “I don’t put out until the third date.”

    __

    Bond and Q are on a mission, and sleep together. Things go on from there. Well... when Bond says sleeping together, it's not exactly what he usually means. It seems, to get there, they take the long way round.

    Or: Bond is a bit messed up. Q is a bit in love with him. This may or may not be a good cocktail

    Summary

    Traceability: the ability to chronologically interrelate uniquely identifiable entities in a way that is verifiable

    Trace: (v) to find or discover by investigation; (n) a mark, object or other indication of the existence or passing of something

    --

    [ a post-Skyfall James Bond and Q-centric series ]

    In which James Bond continues his work as a Double-O agent with a new reckless streak and Q is ever the voice in his earpiece, the supplier of his equipment and an anchor back to MI6.

    This is a series of interconnected stories on the development of Bond and Q's relationship - as individuals and professionals who take note of and fixate on each other after the Silva incident, who grow close to each other in increments until they eventually become a very important feature in each other's lives. Duty - and soon after, trust - is what binds them.

    Love, possibly, comes after.

    Summary

    Q leans forward, hands folded on the table in front of him, which appears to be a tell that he's about to be serious. "I think if you only live in the field, you're less likely to remember there's a reason to live when you're out of it."
