    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.”

    Summary

    Sequel to: oh mercy, I implore.

    On the inhale, James decides that this life—lazy Sunday mornings, the persistent smell of bergamot, ink dark skin under his mouth, and Q breath’s across his bones—is worth infinitely more than all MI-6 has to offer. On the exhale, M sentences him to certain death—months of deep undercover, endlessly dark days where Q’s voice won’t be in his ear, the post-Spectre tidying up that James thought they’d somehow avoided.

    Summary

    Sequel to: you’re a holy fool all colored blue.

    Home, for James, was once a shoulder holster in a foreign country, women he didn’t know and regularly forgot, the London skyline outside his window, a martini shaken just right, and a suit so sharp, marks sometimes cut themselves on his edges. Home, now, is a person, is pizza after a long day, an entire cabinet full of tea, soft pillows and a warm mouth across his shoulders—it’s still London, but home is a flat he shares, a bed where he fights for blankets, the permanent indent of a book spine resting against his ribs, and he’s finally done running away.

    Summary

    Q wonders, briefly, how James could possibly think this is an appropriate time to profess his undying love—or whatever the hell it is he’s attempting to do; though, frankly, the skeleton suit did make him blink a bit stupidly at his laptop—but then something explodes to his left, and Q heaves a long-suffering sigh and snaps at him for ruining everything good in the world. James laughs and carries on wielding his Walther like it isn’t the 7500th replacement that Q has thrown at him.

    Summary

    “Paperwork for the new head of Q-Branch,” Tanner said.

    “Of course.” The words were like glass in his throat. Smoke inhalation was a bitch. His brain felt slow and foggy, like it was full of smoke too. “Who shall I take them to?”

    M lifted one white brow. “They’re for you, Quartermaster.”

     

    Bond and Q are drawn together by names, work, and a certain Aston Martin. In which Q is kidnapped once, Bond is poisoned twice, and Eve is a badass on at least three occasions. AKA that time I tripped and wrote 80,000 words of 00Q.

    All titles unapologetically stolen from Alfred, Lord Tennyson.
