    Summary

    The reply to the Delta was swift, clipped and professional. "Delta four-zero-two-zero, continue Zulu-Alpha, follow British Airways, monitor tower one-two-three-niner," the voice said, and James had never been more eager to get instruction from an air traffic controller in his entire career.

    Summary

    “You’re off the bloody clock,” Bond growls kindly into Q’s neck and nips at the skin when Q paws for the mobile.

    “Might be important,” Q says, because he’s a raging workaholic (Bond is not going to throw stones in the glass house of his own work issues), and he scrolls through the message.

    Bond can feel him tense as he types back his reply, and he noses at Q's neck before brushing a caring kiss into the skin. Q puffs out a tired sigh, although he relaxes under Bond’s ministrations, which serves as an encouragement, and Bond gladly continues.

    “I’ve got to spend tomorrow morning with Mallory, discussing security upgrade options for his personal and work computers,” Q at last says gloomily, dropping the phone back onto the table.

    In which there's lasagne, and Q tells Bond how he first met M.

    Summary

    Story summary: Rosings Park was left to Anne de Bourgh when Sir Lewis de Bourgh passed. With Anne is facing her own death, she arranges a nefarious scheme to allow her mother to stay at Rosings while giving Elizabeth independence.

    EB&FD will end up with a HEA, but this is not a story for everyone. Most of the major themes in this story come from history, people I've known, or things the author has experienced.

    This story was originally published in 2016 as "Lady Catherine Heading for the Hedgerows". It was taken down at the start of 2019. It was restarted in April of 2020. See Ch 1 for a more detailed description of what happened. I am now back to reposting the stories for your enjoyment. I will be posting at least 1 chapter a week.

    This story is 39 chapters with the last 3 being an epilogue and bonus content.

    Enjoy.
