    Summary

    Lena knew she had spent too much of her life in a state of passive dread, just waiting for something bad to happen. In a life like that, relief was as close as you got to happiness.

    * * *

    Paul looked at Lena. Millions of boys had looked at Lena, but no one had ever looked at her like that.

    Paul and Lena, Lena and Paul. They didn't even smile at each other or say anything. Maybe they didn't even realize something was happening, but Carmen did. She just knew it.

    Suddenly, in the middle of the cozy four-top, a chasm opened. On one side were the world and the restaurant and all the regular people like Porter and Carmen. On the other side were Paul and Lena. As intensely alert as she was, Carmen didn't feel like she could look at them or listen to them. She didn't belong there, on the other side.

    Summary

    Austin and Ally and the quarter-life crisis. She shrugs. "Somehow I became the unofficial keeper of Austin Moon's well-being. Not even sure when that happened." He laughs. "You should look into getting a separate phone line. My label might even reimburse you. You're saving them a fortune on shrink bills." Oneshot.

    Summary

    Q thinks he can't imagine anything worse than three days at a conference with James Bond as his bodyguard. Bond thinks that's showing a lack of imagination. He may be right.

    Or, the one where Q has a long-standing arrangement, Bond condescends to croissants and tablecloths, unresolved issues abound, and then actual serious stuff happens. Post-Spectre.

    Summary

    Oh, to have been matched with an accountant somewhere, Q would absently think as Bond crushed an extremely expensive communications device under his heel and took a woman with this or that piece of information to bed.

    “If she stabs him,” Q would observe through gritted teeth. “It’ll serve him right.”

    Q and Bond are soulmates. Between Q's family and Bond's... everything, it isn't as simple as it sounds.
