COMPLETE! Bond finds himself increasingly curious about his enigmatic Quartermaster.
"Your prior hotel is no longer secure, I will direct you to a new location. Your luggage has already been transferred. A field agent and medic from the Diréction Générale de la Sécurité d'État will be waiting at the side entrance. I have cleared them both personally." In contrast to his crisp dry English, Q's pronunciation of the French words was fluid and flawless, the throaty tone of the fricatives sending a surprising jolt of awareness straight to Bond's cock — all the more remarkable given his degree of blood loss.
"You're wasted on Q-branch, you have the voice for a phone-sex call-in line." The words slipped out of Bond's mouth without forethought, although he had plenty of time to think in the sudden pause that came afterward and stretched on for endless moments. Bond hadn't realized until now how Q was always there, with an immediate reply. In all their banter Q had never before been at a loss for words. Ever.

Just a little one-shot story in the Quriosity universe. I decided to continue it, but got stuck and am taking it back down to a oneshot until the whole thing is written so I don't leave people in suspense. Chapter 2 is just a placeholder for now. Inspired by a scene in The Hour, where Ben Whishaw's character says, "I don't want to die at the bloody office!"
“What is it, Q?” He could hear the sudden hyperawareness in Bond’s voice.
“Hostiles in Q Branch.” Q could feel the eerie calm of mission mode settling over himself as well as he snapped a half-full magazine into the box of the Walther. “Stand by.”
