    Summary

    If Bond's going to play dirty, he'd better get ready for a knock down, drag out fight in the mud, because Q’s got a few tricks up his sleeves and he's too stubborn to take this lying down.

    Or

    Bond tries to break up with Q, and Q's spectacular revenge plan.

    Summary

    I know the ending of London Spy was traumatic for a lot of people, so this is my own small effort at a fix-it fic to tweak i.e. completely change the ending. No disrespect meant to Tom Rob Smith and his creation (which I actually love quite a lot).

    I hope no one takes offense to the changes I've made, and I tried to be respectful of the original ending, while making some very obvious, huge edits.

    Also, while I don't think it's necessary to enjoy the fic, I would recommend reading Seven Year Revival before delving into this fic as I make a couple references to the drabbles that may enrich the overall experience.

    Summary

    The first time Bond flirted with Q, it was purely out of self-defense.
    The second time Bond flirted with Q was largely manipulation.
    The third time Bond flirted with Q, he just wanted to feel something.
    The fourth time Bond flirted with Q was out of sheer boredom.

    Somehow, flirting with Q became something of a habit for Bond.

    And then, it became something else.

    Summary

    Evelyn.

    That’s the name that appeared on Bond’s skin when he was about twelve and a half. He hadn’t expected to get one at all—the name of one’s soulmate rarely appears so late—but for days after the letters emerge from under his skin, he stared at them as best as he could.

    The name wasn’t hard to see. It was written on his chest, just down from his left shoulder. He would trace the letters as a child and wonder.

    “Evelyn,” Kincade said. “I’m sure she’s a very pretty lady, eh?”

    Summary

    COMPLETE! Bond finds himself increasingly curious about his enigmatic Quartermaster.

    Excerpt:

    "Your prior hotel is no longer secure, I will direct you to a new location. Your luggage has already been transferred. A field agent and medic from the Diréction Générale de la Sécurité d'État will be waiting at the side entrance. I have cleared them both personally." In contrast to his crisp dry English, Q's pronunciation of the French words was fluid and flawless, the throaty tone of the fricatives sending a surprising jolt of awareness straight to Bond's cock — all the more remarkable given his degree of blood loss.

    "You're wasted on Q-branch, you have the voice for a phone-sex call-in line." The words slipped out of Bond's mouth without forethought, although he had plenty of time to think in the sudden pause that came afterward and stretched on for endless moments. Bond hadn't realized until now how Q was always there, with an immediate reply. In all their banter Q had never before been at a loss for words. Ever.
