Though Bond returned to MI6 after his ill advised jaunt around the globe with Madeleine Swann, Q still struggles with his own feelings for the agent in spite of the fact that Bond is clearly not the same man as the one who walked away from their friendship on Westminster Bridge.
James regrets having left London and MI6, but it is nothing in comparison to the remorse he feels for abandoning Q. However, James has made repairing their friendship his primary goal in the hope of gaining something he never realised he needed as badly as he does.
But Bond really hasn’t had a good time of it lately. Breaking his leg in a freak accident, James camps out at Q’s flat when the white-washed, soulless walls of Medical become too much for him to tolerate. Unfortunately, his leg is only the beginning of Bond’s health problems, and Q is conscripted into being James’ caretaker.
Confined to the close quarters of Q’s flat, the Quartermaster finds himself opening back up to the agent, but will the two men find their way to one another as they should have done years ago, or is time no longer on their side?

It is fourteen years after the Battle of Hogwarts that he finds himself at the helm of MI6’s Q Branch, 29 and thrilled and terrified and completely alone.
(In which everything is the same except Q and Bond are both wizards and think the other is a muggle.)
Q learned quite quickly that he wasn't like other people - that he lived and died like everyone else, but remembered every lifetime before like pages in a never-ending book. He also learned quite quickly what people did with other people who were different. The one thing that made Q's many lives bearable, though, was the one soul that returned in every lifetime: James.
There was only one problem.
James returned, time and again, just like Q did. Same blue eyes, same golden hair, same devasating smile and penchant for trouble. But James never remembered a bit of it - each life for him was his first life, and he therefore had no idea why Q would always trust him like a polestar, and grieve for him like Pompeii.
Bond liked to unwind after missions and Q really wasn't about to protest to indecently good, semi-regular sex.
But as seemed to be the way of the world, the end turned out to be rather different from the start.
