    Summary

    Bond stares at him. There are two men tied up against the wall and four more lying on the floor, bleeding and hogtied with duct tape.

    “I ran out of rope after the first two,” Q admits.

    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)

    Summary

    This wasn't Steve's plan for tonight.

    Part of the plan, maybe. The part where he goes to a club, anonymous and dark; that's been part of the plan from the start. The part where he finds some... company; also part of the plan. He's self-aware enough to know how pathetically lonely he's feeling right now. The rest of the plan had been...less detailed, more just a collection abstract ideas. None of which he'd imagined would lead him here, his palms sweaty as they fish handfuls of cash out of his pockets, one arm anchored around the waist of a man who is very enthusiastically nibbling on his earlobe.

     

    Or:

    Steve tries and fails to master the whole 'one-night stand' thing, lies snowball in a truly epic fashion, the supervillains of New York are all out of control, Tony is the worst best friend and mediator in the history of ever, and Bucky has the patience of a saint. Guest starring: Augustus the houseplant, projectile pineapples, and Target superhero costumes.

    Summary

    “When Person heard through the grapevine that his unit was going back, he called Gunny Wynn at home, drunk, from Kansas City, and told him he was reenlisting. Gunny Wynn told him to shut up, go to bed and stay a civilian.” (excerpt, Generation Kill, by Evan Wright)
