    Summary

    In a rare moment of sincerity, Bond responds, “That information is privy only to you.”

    Or: In which sometimes 007 is just James Bond, and Q is just Sherrinford Mawdsley. And sometimes there are feelings involved where they shouldn't be.

    Summary

    “Or is it Q who’s going to be Mr Bond?” Alec merrily ploughs on, right into the carefully cultivated flowerbed of Bond’s repressed problem. “No, I think you’ll be Mr Q after all. Say, Jamesy,” Alec’s voice takes on a confidential tone as he slides an inch closer, and there’s that brick-like subtlety again. “Since we’re best mates and all... just between us - what is Mr Q’s name?”
    -
    In which everyone assumes Bond knows Q's real name. (Everyone is wrong.)

    Summary

    Bond rolls forward, although his usual liquidly graceful movements are stiff from his injuries. Q doesn’t startle, too used to Bond’s antics over months of travelling together, although his breath does hitch when Bond sweeps his fingers under Q's glasses, brushing lightly against the dark bruises Q knows are still there.

    "Think of this as a vacation,” Bond says. “You haven't stopped at all since we left London."

    "A vacation," Q says incredulously. "With the scorching sun and questionable water and unreliable food supplies and a heightened chance of tropical water-borne diseases, and all my equipment sunk in the ocean."

    “With the briny air and an abundance of wild and sea life and limitless possibilities," Bond counters, "without alerts or surveillance or the need to stare at a glowing screen for hours on end.”

     

    (Post-Spectre mission fic, where the mission is to survive being stranded on a desert island, and shutting down Spectre's operations is a critical but secondary objective reserved for after they get off the island.

    But when did MI6's missions ever run according to plan?)

    Summary

    'James is well aware of Q's little crush. He’s sure he’ll get bored of it, sooner or later, but he never does.

    He wonders if the constancy is the thing. There’s something distasteful about having to watch attraction fade to plain old lust, lust fade to faint longing. Worst of all when the longing fades to pity or misplaced empathy, compassion he doesn’t need for a life they don’t understand.

    And it’s easy, to list the times he’s seen that look on Q’s face.'
