    Summary

    It’s taboo to touch another’s daemon. Don’t interact with another’s daemon unless given explicit permission or in an emergency. When the manifestation of your soul is capable of walking, talking and interacting with the world, only the ironclad rules of daemon etiquette keeps everyone relatively safe and happy.

    Then again, Q and Estelle have always pushed boundaries in the name of innovation. Bond and Bailey? Well, they wouldn't be a Double-O team if they had ever adhered to the laws and precepts that bound everyone else.

    These are just some of the many ways the 007 and Quartermaster teams redefine norms.

     

    (A series of ficlets set in the way we come undone verse aka the Skyfall/His Dark Materials fusion where all Craig!Bond canon applies, with the sole addition that everyone has a daemon).

    Summary

    Q and Estelle have crossed plenty of boundaries in their capacity as the Quartermaster team, but when it comes to research on the human-daemon link, Q can’t sacrifice ethics for practically. Not quite. (Not yet).

    Bond has always felt an overwhelming need to protect the ones he has allowed to matter, a care he extends to his daemon. Of course, Bailey feels quite the same, and their reckless streak leads them to pushing the limits of the human-daemon bond in an attempt to preserve it.

     

    (A Skyfall/His Dark Materials fusion in that this fic takes place after the events of Skyfall, with the sole addition that everyone has a daemon. All Craig!Bond canon applies).

    Summary

    The trains and Tube lines are Q’s preferred modes of transportation, partly because he doesn’t need to be in control when he takes either and partly because of how they are constructed, the stations connected to each other like points on a beautiful mind map. Q has his preferred routes, but the established lines of connection still allow him to navigate London through dozens of different configurations.

    Bond though, Bond is a wild spirit. The independence of cars and aviation gives him the freedom to do as he pleases – no restrictions, no limits save the ones he places on himself, where he has complete control of the situation.

    That Q is here, sitting in the passenger seat like the best kind of insurance, is the one limit Bond chooses to put on himself.

    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)
