|2/28/2016 16:37:28||Stitches||astudyinfic||Left behind in favour of Madeleine Swann, Q struggles to put his life back together. The way he manages it leaves everyone longing for the man he used to be.||A unique take on what happens post-Spectre. Author doesn't try to fix what happened but only show how Q deals with being left behind. Certainly not a happy ending but still beautiful in a sad sort of way.||Angst, post-Spectre, SongFic||Anon||http://archiveofourown.org/works/6058279|
|2/28/2016 17:58:39||shake all your earth to dust||badacts||A post-Spectre fic in which Bond, Q, and Eve are trapped and injured under an exploded building while chasing after Blofeld, and must work together to keep each other calm and safe while waiting for rescue. Madeleine, who's picked up a psych job at MI6, is one of the people on the surface who's in contact with them, which is a good thing because Eve happens to be in love with her.||I LOVE Eve's crush on Madeleine in this fic and the way it's resolved! As the writer says, "who doesn't like beautiful, brilliant ladies falling in love." But not only does this fic have excellent Eve/Madeleine romance, it also has really great teamwork and respectful, teasing friendships between Eve, Bond, and Q (MI6 SQUAD!); Bond and Q working out a few of their post-Spectre issues; all the practical details that make an MI6 mission-aftermath fic feel real; and an adorable cactus. <3||Hurt/Comfort, Romance, post-Spectre||castillon02||http://archiveofourown.org/works/5340065|
|Descent||gunshyvw||Q is floundering in the aftermath of Blofeld's capture and James' abandonment.||http://archiveofourown.org/works/5889844/chapters/13575226|
|A Moderate Self-Awareness||JPlash||Q is surprised. Q has not known him very long, and this is maybe James’ favourite thing about him: he persists in being surprised.||it actually makes post-Spectre 00Q make sense? like? how else to explain it I just love this|
|No Cock Tuesdays||Castillon02||Bond, Q, and Madeleine are snowed in and anticipating some hot OT3 sex. Only one problem: Bond’s cock is not cooperating.||well, I mean, it's 00QSwann, firstly. it's also cute as fuck||http://archiveofourown.org/works/5812384|
|Half Truth||sir_not_appearing_in_this_archive||"Lying is easy. ... This lie, though. This lie might come back and bite him in the ass."|
An alternate reading of the end of SPECTRE, if Franz Oberhauser's machine had worked.
|such a good idea omg (also perfect Bond POV)||http://archiveofourown.org/works/5207300|
|Cetro, Donna Lucia||theoldgods||Missing American embassy staff and a missing armament shipment must be accounted for. Fortunately for MI6, James Bond has a working relationship of sorts with the new head of the Sciarra business in Rome.||I made a screeching noise when I found this. I made another one once I'd read it. Perfect.||http://archiveofourown.org/works/5173976|
|dynamite (for the matchbox in your head)||beili||“'We are trying to save your life,' Q says, finally, looking up at Bond. 'You’re dying, James.'|
Bond turns the thought over and over, and doesn’t know how he feels about it. He’s definitely not surprised that Death is knocking on his door again. He certainly flirted with her long enough."
|I love this theory about the end of spectre and I love this interpretation of it aaah||http://archiveofourown.org/works/5239640|
|the very sharp thing made sharp on purpose||scioscribe||Bond is used to being a weapon; Q is used to making them. They can both learn better. Or, the one where you really can stay at home and still prefer not to kill people.||I think the thing I love most about this is that it's not really 00Q, they're just friends? also scioscribe is a god||http://archiveofourown.org/works/5181782|
|it doesn't take you away from yourself||scioscribe||Q thinks he can't imagine anything worse than three days at a conference with James Bond as his bodyguard. Bond thinks that's showing a lack of imagination. He may be right.|
Or, the one where Q has a long-standing arrangement, Bond condescends to croissants and tablecloths, unresolved issues abound, and then actual serious stuff happens. Post-Spectre.
|I think I love everything they have ever written. their writing is amazing. so. that's it for reasons I love it.||http://archiveofourown.org/works/5221160|

(Madeleine in the aftermath of Spectre)
|SCREAMS BECAUSE THIS IS EXACTLY MY HEADCANON AND IT'S LOVELY AND I'M SO HAPPY THIS EXISTS I mean it's Madeleine-centric what more could you ask for||http://archiveofourown.org/works/5262311|
|shake all your earth to dust||badacts||It was a trap, a trap that has consequently trapped them in a massive concrete and steel sandwich.|
“Why couldn’t you have just shot that bastard and had done with it, Bond?” she groans.

|Martini Lights||kurgaya||“Do you recognise me?”|
Bond blinks, turning bristle and a tight, clenched jaw into the palm. Colours blur with pain, shapes distort into form, and through the haze of agony as his heart slows into calm, he sees –
“I’ll always recognise you,” Bond says; he cannot even bring himself to lie.
|I love this theory to bits and this is beautifully done||http://archiveofourown.org/works/5273771|
|One More Thing||obfuscatress||“If it weren’t all strictly off the record,” Bond mutters and looks up at him, “Mallory would have given you a medal of valour by now.”|
“No, of course. It isn’t everyday I put my career on the line for a hard headed bulldog by obfuscating national security records. I like to think you would have visited me in prison, if it got out of hand.”
|YELLS A LOT oh sorry is this not canon?||http://archiveofourown.org/works/5121848|

|The Microwave Incident||obfuscatress||Q finds the microwave of his dreams, James Bond is unacquainted with modern day kitchen appliances, and Madeleine Swann has never been so happy they keep a fire blanket on the wall.||DOMESTIC 00QSWANN GOODBYE FRIENDS I AM GONE. this is so sweet I'm gonna die||http://archiveofourown.org/works/5933272|
