    Summary

    “Is that all you’re going to say?” Bond asks. Q purses his lips, as if in thought.
    “They warned me about you,” he says. “What you might do.
    “Murder?” Bond asks.
    “Seduction.”
    “Ah.” Bond leans against the desk, supporting himself with one hand, in a manner that usually lets people know what his intentions are. Q looks him up and down and raises his brows.
    “Exhibit A,” Q says, and looks pointedly at Bond’s hips.
    “You can’t say it isn’t working,” Bond says.
    “No. I can’t.”

    _________________

    Love, in all of it's previous forms, has always screwed Bond over. So when he first kisses Q it's to get away from it, not to fall into it. Bond is, however, not known for his great emotional foresight.

    Summary

    Based on art by Puckboum for the Captain America Reverse Big Bang. The prompt: "Post-apocalyptic AU. The idea I had while drawing was that the end of the world happens some time after WS or CW, Steve and Bucky are looking for Tony so he can make a new arm for Bucky, and Natasha, Clint and Sam are looking for them so they can stop Hydra from taking control of what's left of society. That or quiet slice of life, except in a post-apo world."

    Summary

    “Well as a general rule, one person usually wants to spend time with another because he or she would like to know more about that person in question.” Bond shrugs, nonchalant in the face of Q’s eyeroll. “Also, most people would consider it to be enjoyable as well, to have food in the process.”

    “A very succinct and completely unnecessary introduction to Social Interactions 101, thank you, but you know damn well what I mean.”

    “As a matter of fact, I don’t. Which is another reason why this upcoming dinner is so important.”

    (Or, the one with mirrors, meals, and an attempted romance. It's just a coincidence that Q has loved Bond in almost every life he's lived.)

    Summary

    James is what the world calls a Grim: an individual with a low or nonexistent emotional quotient. All Grims were psychopathic on a certain level, rarely (if ever) connecting with humanity on an compassionate, emotional level, making them uniquely equipped for the kinds of jobs that turned most people’s stomachs (or challenged their morals). In other words, James made a damn fine MI6 agent. Bond was on the slightly more emotive end of that scale, however, so when he hears that Q - a Pet, an individual who thrives on contact and trust, and who had an incredibly high emotional quotient - has been attacked in MI6, he doesn't hesitate to answer M's summons to come home.

    Because Bond might be coldhearted, but there's just something about a Pet like Q that gets under his skin - and right into the few warm corners of his heart.

    Summary

    It’s almost painful watching his cats’ distress at being turfed off of Bond; Q has to stop himself from giving in and letting Bond stay.

     

    It starts with a cat. There's a lot of weirdness in-between. The end is something completely unexpected.

    Summary

    “Am I sacked?”

    M doesn’t bother answering James’ attempt at humor but instead continues in his point. “Since your return from the Skyfall operation, which was over a year ago I might add, you have not taken one day of leave, no holiday of which I'm aware. You haven’t rested the requisite 48 hour period between mission and report.”

    James takes a deep breath and lets it out slowly.

    “You are not a young man,” M says plainly. “Everyone, even James Bond, needs time to let wounds heal, both physical and mental. Pushing yourself is going to get you or someone else killed eventually.”

    “So not another mission then?” James asks and moves to stand.

    **

    Or, James Bond is forced to take a few days off, runs into Q at a kebab shop, starts playing World of Warcraft, and takes a trip to Witney to meet Q's family (for reasons of national security, of course).

    Summary

    “Heil Hydra,” the enemy agent shouts. 

    “Heil this, motherfucker,” says Captain America, shooting off a rocket.

    Steve and Bucky find out Hollywood has been busy since they went away. A historical survey, including but not limited to: one set of exploded genitals, a brief interlude in France, Mel Gibson and other masterworks of casting, eight Academy awards, several dinosaurs, and something Tony Stark has ominously dubbed “the masterpiece.” Art included.

    ETA: Hello, I fixed this by taking it out of all collections. Apologies to those of you who had marked it in open or public ones, someone put it in a private collection and it disappeared, prompting a floor of despair in my inboxes on multiple platforms. If this has appeared as a new work, that's just AO3's default move for revealing 'unrevealed' stories. It has not been edited, save for this note. P.S. If you are adding works to collections please make sure the collection is public! -- Nat (Febricant)

    Summary

    Q doesn’t bend for anything and Q certainly doesn’t break for anyone, especially when it comes to stubborn double-ohs intent on making Q’s life hell, so when Q wakes up on a Saturday morning to 12 new texts from Bond and the incessant ringing of his flat’s doorbell, Q makes sure to bring a gun to answer the door.

    “Delivery for one…Quabik Quadree?”

    Q feels the weight of the Glock 19 in the pocket of his dressing gown and sincerely wonders whether to shoot the delivery man or himself.

    (or, that fic where everyone wants to know Q's name and stupid things happen in the process)

    Summary

    With French airports closed due to blizzard, Bond is determined to get home to Q by Christmas Day - so he stows away on a ferry.

    -

    Christmas has never been his thing, really, nor has it been Q’s. But something on this mission has filled him with deep, searing longing, a need to come home and be with Q, feel his soft lips and see the spark in his clever eyes. Now, with no means of communication and aware that for the last nine hours Q’s had no way of knowing where he is because the tracker that M (the previous M) had implanted in him years ago is long since dead, he’s overwhelmed with the need to get back to Q. It’s snowing, it’s Christmas Eve, and Bond finds himself soaring on the utterly romantic desperation to spend Christmas Day with Q, to infallibly turn up like a miracle on their home’s doorstep.

    “He told me… that he’d loved and trusted people with his life before, and that it didn’t end well. And he told me… that he would trust me with his life… and his death.”

    “Wow. Now I don’t know which one of you to warn off of breaking the other’s heart, anymore.”
