    Summary

    James Bond in a British spy in World War I. After discovering a spy working for the Germans, Bond is injured returning to London to report. He wakes up in the stately manor of Vauxhall, home of the Lord Holmes and his brothers. Bond wakes to the voice of the youngest Holmes, Quincy. But he can not see and he still has a spy to capture.

    Very slow build of strangers to friends to lovers in a time when homosexuality is a crime, and PTSD can get you shot as a deserter.

    Summary

    Bond isn't sure what to think of the new Quartermaster, of the high tech gear and the way the man is always in his ear thanks to mandatory ear pieces for all agents. The old Q hadn't required those things after all, and everything had worked fine.
    But Bond is a risk now, after Vesper, seeming to kill without noticing, without caring, and there are quiet rumors that he wont seduce his targets anymore, and that his drinking is out of control, so Q is told to keep a sharp eye on him and his mental health.
    Bond is irritated with the constant presence of Q, but somehow their traded insults turn into teasing jabs, and then genuine affection, and eventually they move from talking via earpiece on missions to texting every day, with messages growing more and more explicit as time goes on.
    But Q is nothing less than professional whenever Bond is around, and the agent has a hard time reconciling the aloof Quartermaster with the teasing devil that has him bringing himself off desperately at night to the naughty texts.
    Q is a man connected to his tech, and Bond is a man living in the field, and the only way to be together is offline somewhere.
    But which one is going to take the first step?
