    Summary

    In retrospect, maybe hacking the earpiece of the most dangerous weapon MI6 has to offer to help him take down an international crime syndicate you just so happen to be a part of hadn’t been such a great idea after all.

    In Q’s defence: the undercover agent pretending to be his bodyguard still hasn’t made a move to kill him, and he’s getting bored.

    Bookmark Notes:

    [What Q doesn’t know -- what will never be mentioned in any of the various post-mission reports -- is this: Alec Trevelyan watches Raymond Kessler for three weeks before first approaching him. He takes note of the young, bespectacled, skinny man that accompanies Kessler immediately. A lover, most likely, and Alec’s way in.

    And whilst it quickly becomes clear that Alec is wrong about the former, the latter proves true in more ways than expected.

    It turns out to be a theme, where Ω and Alec are concerned. Ω will say or do something, Alec will draw reasonable conclusions, and half the time he will be wrong. Half the time he will be all too right. He will watch Ω type on his keyboard without flinching or loosing his focus once, while Raymond tortures a man two steps away from him. Read neither pleasure or sadism, nor tension or discomfort in the young man’s posture. Watch as Ω hands a young girl with bright, green eyes and red-bitten lips the five pounds she’s missing to pay her bill on that same evening.

    Ω is an enigma. He holds neither affection nor loyalty towards Raymond, and yet he doesn’t stray from the man’s path. He is a genius of terrible power in his own right, yet he only uses is abilities to secure facilities and improve firewalls.

    The thing is, Alec doesn’t fall in love the way James does. He doesn’t love countries, doesn’t love women, doesn’t love the man he would readily die for, doesn’t love anyone at all. But Ω intrigues him, and for Alec, that is perhaps as close to love as he’ll ever come. It is all the more alarming when one considers that Ω doesn’t appear to plan on killing him -- and not for lack of opportunities Alec offers.

    And maybe everything about Ω is enticing in a way that should rouse Alec’s suspicions, would make him the perfect trap, the perfect ray of light to blind Alec to the shadows hiding underneath, and maybe that is precisely what makes Alec want all the more.

    But what keeps those instincts from truly rousing, what keeps Alec from lashing out, is what he will only confess once in his lifetime, a long way off into the future, after far too many glasses of vodka and far too many ounces of lost blood: Alec falls in love with Q the day Q introduces himself as Ω -- a term used for the lowest of members in a wolf pack, a term for those at the bottom of the hierarchy, the discarded and the weak -- with a confident smirk that says he is the only one in on a hilarious joke the whole world falls victim to. Alec falls in love with Q the day he identifies the man as dangerous. And for all the times Alec is wrong about Ω, this isn’t one of them.]

    [What Q doesn’t know, won’t know for a long time yet, is this: The moment James Bond lays eyes on uroboros for the first time, he knows.]

    A very brutally beautiful work that needs to be published so that I may read through enough times to dog-ear the pages.
