    Summary

    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.

    Summary

    It’s not that James is surprised to find Q at the bar of the Hoffler Klinik… Well, he is surprised — he’s been under the impression the boffin didn’t fly. But it’s more that he’s surprised it’s Q himself that tracks him down. If Q and Moneypenny are really in so much trouble for helping him, Q could have easily just given M his location and washed his hands of the association. That would have been the sensible thing to do. Then, instead of one somewhat flustered boffin trying to persuade him to come in from the dark, Bond would be faced with a throng of agents ready to haul his arse in via any force necessary.

    That would have been rather inconvenient.

    It makes James think, perhaps, Q is another ally.

    Summary

    “Well I’m going to run some errands,” David says, brushing a stray bit of fuzz off his navy blue sweater. “But we’re still on for birthday dinner?”

    “Yeah,” Patrick nods. He’s pretty sure David knows the annual birthday surprise party stopped being a surprise after year two or three. David doesn’t even inflict fictional catastrophes on the café as a decoy anymore. But Patrick plays along anyway. In some ways their whole partnership is built on playing along.

    OR David and Patrick have been business partners for a decade until, on Patrick's 40th Birthday, everything changes.

    Summary

    "I don't want to hear any ridiculous comments from you," Q says as he stands with his key in his front door. "This is my personal space. I am only inviting you into it due to extreme circumstances. Please respect that."

    Bond gives a pleasant nod. "I'll mind my manners," he promises.

    ----

    In which Bond plays the damsel in distress (briefly) and Q is too mysterious for Bond not to be intrigued.

    Summary

    This evening felt a little like stepping back in time. Perhaps because they’d been apart for so long, or maybe it was just really good weed, but it was easy to fall back into that silly, lax headspace where the generally-accepted rules just didn’t seem to matter. The air between them felt charged, reminding Dan of those heady days of maybe and possibly and I wish we could.
