    Bookmarker's Notes

    The Dangerous Liaisons series by Christine Hager reminded me why I venture back to one of my first fandoms every now and again. Although this series is a WIP I do think that it is well worth a read for Gundam Wing fans, and I really enjoyed the unusual pairing. The version here on AO3 isn't the most complete that's actually on Gundam Wing Addiction (http://gwaddiction.com/) just search for Christine - that too is a WIP and was last updated in September 2003. The series does deal with some pretty awful things - rape, physical and mental abuse, torture to name a few - but I think the topics are handled sensitively.

    Summary

    James is what the world calls a Grim: an individual with a low or nonexistent emotional quotient. All Grims were psychopathic on a certain level, rarely (if ever) connecting with humanity on an compassionate, emotional level, making them uniquely equipped for the kinds of jobs that turned most people’s stomachs (or challenged their morals). In other words, James made a damn fine MI6 agent. Bond was on the slightly more emotive end of that scale, however, so when he hears that Q - a Pet, an individual who thrives on contact and trust, and who had an incredibly high emotional quotient - has been attacked in MI6, he doesn't hesitate to answer M's summons to come home.

    Because Bond might be coldhearted, but there's just something about a Pet like Q that gets under his skin - and right into the few warm corners of his heart.

    Pet by Only_1_Truth is a delightfully different 00Q fic. For a start it's more sensual than sexual. There's no graphic violence (no violence at all really, just the aftermath of it). Despite being just three chapters, Only_1_Truth tells a well paced story about re-learning to trust.

    Just Like a Tattoo (I'll Always Have You) by exybee is a cute story about the Foxes as a family, and how much they mean to Neil. The Neil/Andrew scenes are adorable.

    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.

    Ulysses by girlbookwrm is a gorgeous 00Q story that slowly unfolds, and before you realise it you're deeply engrossed and don't want to stop!

    Summary

    Merlin is a recent graduate with a double doctorate in metaphysics and physics. Arthur is a low-level paper pusher with a desk in the sub-basement of MI5. They live in a world with ridiculous laws and restrictions against anyone who might be supernatural in any way, shape, or design.

    Merlin has huge debts looming over this head, a few quid left in his bank account, and no job prospects. Arthur is pushing thirty, in a dead-end job with no chances of promotion to fieldwork agent, and is thoroughly bored with his life.

    One ill-advised Craigslist advert, five pushy mates, one nosy all-knowing sister, and a hacked email account later, Merlin and Arthur take the world by storm.

    (Or, more precisely, they take over the world.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Unstoppable Superweapons by Footloose and mushroomtale is a brilliant, witty read that will draw you in. It's long and complicated and delightfully detailed, but it's a really fun and entertaining read and I totally rec it to those of you who are in the Merlin (TV) fandom.
