    Summary

    In the desert, in the dusk, no one can see them. No one can hear him say all those things he should have said so many times before. No one can see him hold off saying them because he refuses to believe this is the last chance he’ll get.

     

    -

    A mission went wrong, Q is badly wounded, and Bond needs to get him to safety.

    Summary

    Bond rolls forward, although his usual liquidly graceful movements are stiff from his injuries. Q doesn’t startle, too used to Bond’s antics over months of travelling together, although his breath does hitch when Bond sweeps his fingers under Q's glasses, brushing lightly against the dark bruises Q knows are still there.

    "Think of this as a vacation,” Bond says. “You haven't stopped at all since we left London."

    "A vacation," Q says incredulously. "With the scorching sun and questionable water and unreliable food supplies and a heightened chance of tropical water-borne diseases, and all my equipment sunk in the ocean."

    “With the briny air and an abundance of wild and sea life and limitless possibilities," Bond counters, "without alerts or surveillance or the need to stare at a glowing screen for hours on end.”

     

    (Post-Spectre mission fic, where the mission is to survive being stranded on a desert island, and shutting down Spectre's operations is a critical but secondary objective reserved for after they get off the island.

    But when did MI6's missions ever run according to plan?)

    Summary

    Bond was hardly given to self-reflection, but he supposed if he put much thought into why he continued to patronize this particular restaurant, he might pin his reasoning on his server.

    Because Q was absolutely his server.

    Summary

    Two minutes in, he thinks, This is not so bad.
    Four minutes in, he thinks, We have to be close to being finished, right?
    Four and a half minutes in, he thinks, Good lord, I’m going to die.

    In which Q thinks that if M wanted him to tender his resignation, there must be easier ways to do so than requiring him to meet MI6’s mandatory physical fitness requirements. Particularly when M sees fit to assign James Bond as his personal trainer.

    Summary

    “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.”
