    Summary

    After a brief attempt at retirement, James is back at MI6 and working hard to rebuild working relationships with his colleagues and friends. And he's making great strides.

    Only Q continues to hold him at arm's length, maintaining a stubborn professionalism in their interactions that James remains unable to pierce.

    But James doesn't want Q at arm's length, and so he takes a risk. But even a spy's instincts can run amok, and now James wonders just how long he'll be reaping what he's sown, and how many holidays it will take to win Q over.

    Summary

    Finally, eight weeks after he’d turned up at her consulting room, adrift and from all appearances not waving but drowning, Detective Sergeant Hathaway calls while she’s eating a cheese sandwich and reading Wolf Hall during her lunch break. He asks if she’s still willing to treat him. He sounds like crap.

    Summary

    James Hathaway often thought that at his christening he must have been cursed, by an underhanded and satirical fairy, with the twin blessings of an excellent memory and an inability to run away from his past.

     

    Written for Lysimache in the 2012 Lewis Secret Santa at the lewis_challenge LJ comm. Rated for some long-awaited sex and a few bad words, overwhelmed by ridiculous amounts of literary allusion and exploratory metaphor.
