    Summary

    In which Bond is a retired naval commander with too much house, Q is a mechanical engineer with too many sisters, and they have lengthy conversations about decorum, bonnet-ribbons and philosophy in Regency England.

    ~

    “I just thought you might go pay a visit," his mother suggested.

    “Me?” Q asked, aghast. “Pay a visit?”

    “He must be starved for proper gentleman company, now that he’s settled in so far from London--”

    “I am far from proper gentleman company.”

    “--and perhaps if you befriended him he could introduce you to some nice heiresses.”

    “Heiresses?” Q repeated, baffled and horrified. “What in the world would I do with heiresses?”

    Summary

    The painting is as good a place to start the conversation as anything. Bond looks at him, a glance at first, though Q doesn’t for a moment believe that glance isn’t enough to let Bond know a dozen different things about Q. Then Bond looks him over more carefully. There’s a moment of stillness, and then nothing really changes in Bond’s expression, but Q is suddenly sure Bond has made some kind of conclusion about him.

    Summary

    Geralt mistakes Jaskier for a, ahem, lady of the night, and Jaskier goes with it. As you do.

    "I don't require a whore."

    Funny thing is, Jaskier wasn't about to offer. He means to convey words to that effect to settle the matter and dispel any potential future misunderstandings, but finds himself saying instead, "Why not?"

    Summary

    "What? Why would-- Derek, why would your daemon encourage mine to touch you?" Stiles fakes calm well, but his heart gives him away.

    "Because Luminera is a deviant." He shrugs. He accepted Luminera's reckless behavior years ago.
