    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

    Sequel to: oh mercy, I implore.

    On the inhale, James decides that this life—lazy Sunday mornings, the persistent smell of bergamot, ink dark skin under his mouth, and Q breath’s across his bones—is worth infinitely more than all MI-6 has to offer. On the exhale, M sentences him to certain death—months of deep undercover, endlessly dark days where Q’s voice won’t be in his ear, the post-Spectre tidying up that James thought they’d somehow avoided.

    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

    If you write something on your skin, it will show up on your soulmate's skin as well.
     

    James doesn't quite fall in love over physics discussions and cheeky book quotes and coding and riddles inked onto his skin, but he comes close.

    And then he actually meets Q.

    Summary

    Yes, this version of 007 was a terrifyingly smart agent, and M wondered long and often whether it had been a good idea to promote him to the position. Usually, the title was the dangerous part - being 007 meant deadliness - but this time, M feared that a certain man with ice-blue eyes and scruffy blonde hair had dragged in more danger to the title than it had previously possessed

    Enter MI6's new Quartermaster: an unassuming, bespectacled genius with no mind for subterfuge but plenty of genius behind a dry smile. Curious 00-agents and young boffins don't always mix in predictable ways...
