" Eve spills her chai tea on his desk, and he doesn't find in himself to be upset. She looks deadly.
"He's back." "
They're not friends, exactly, but they are close, and six is almost home. Until Bond comes back.
|Angst, Fluff, Romance, post-Spectre||Forgive the fic's sometimes odd punctuation. This fic is super sensible, with really beautiful moments.|
|3/11/2016 12:23:35||Anon||He shot me down bang bang||Q is thirty two when he thinks about his life. How he was never enough. How he was never loved. Q is thirty two when all he can do is watch. - Bond is forty-seven when he sees them again. There is Vesper and Mathis and M. He needs to hear what they have to say. Bond is forty-seven when he returns back to the living.||Angst||Wonderful story by a wonderful new author. Both point of views, while different from style, are giving the characters a good voice. It still blows my mind knowing, this is coming from someone whose first language isn't English.||G for General Audiences|
|3/20/2016 11:38:27||Casstea||but Should we Run from Ghosts||lc2l||For a long moment Q just stands there, tries to remind himself that air is good, breathing is great and he should really calm down or he'll end up doing something stupid. |
He slams his hand into the back wall and it hurts like hell which means this is actually happening. "So I didn't run," he says, before he can think better of it – before he can think at all. "Are you going to tell me what the game is?"
|Angst, Action/Adventure||When I first read this fic, I was just blown away by the level of detail and characterisation in it! I was just sucked in and didn't surface until the end! Truly amazing writing, and a hell of a good read!||T for Teen|
|3/20/2016 11:40:22||Casstea||What I'd do for love||Casstea||Love was a strange thing. People would go to such lengths to try and find it, hidden in the shadows of relationships that were never quite meant to be.|
And when they found it? When they managed to find the miracle that had once been nothing more than a fairytale? Well then they would walk through hell itself to ensure that the one they loved came to no harm.
James Bond was no different.
|Hurt/Comfort, Alternate Universe (e.g., historical AU, Bond and Q are squirrels, etc), Action/Adventure||A self rec! This story was the first one I wrote for an exchange and I had great fun writing the historical AU aspect of it. It turned out longer and far more plotted than I intended, but it was great fun to write :)||T for Teen|
turning slowly (away from the moon)
|Obfuscatress||She finally understands why her father used to sit on the bench outside, smoking cigarettes for hours on end in the dark.||Angst, post-Spectre, Fix-it||This fic gives Madeleine agency and fixes everything that went wrong with the second half of the movie. It gives beautiful insight into the workings of her mind and her continued friendship with James Bond after their relationship ends.|

|3/30/2016 13:48:36||isthisrubble||risk it all||isthisrubble||a james/vesper fanvid||Angst, Romance||because I'm genuinely proud of this and also people yell at me about it because it made them cry, and I enjoy that|

|3/30/2016 14:27:23||Windows||girl_called_sun||This is a missing scene from about the same point in the film as the the "there are dinner jackets, and dinner jackets. This is the latter" scene. Vesper can't quite hate James, and James is realising there is more to Vesper than meets the eye.||missing scene||this one has always bee a favourite of mine, I love the way it shows their developing relationship.||T for Teen|
|3/30/2016 14:38:33||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.||Fluff, Humor||I love this so much. probably the best fic out there for this ot3|

|3/30/2016 22:34:43||Ho Ho Ho and a Bottle of Scotch||GreenVelvetCurtains||What better way to spend Christmas Eve than breaking and entering your boss' home to play Secret Santa. Or should that be the Grinch? Set pre-Skyfall, but with a nod to M's bulldog.||missing scenes||this is one of the first bond fics I ever read (over on ff.net! *gasp*), and I love the way they show Bond and M's relationship - this backstory for the dog might as well be canon, imho||T for Teen|

He always figured he'd die on his feet. He'd also figured he'd be alone when it happened. Funny how that happens - thinking you are alone when someone is always there, in your ear.
|Angst, death!fic! be warned||this is exactly how it would happen, if they'd ever actually do it in the canon||M for Mature|
|3/31/2016 21:12:10||Listen to Me (can you hear me?)||OhMercyMe||http://archiveofourown.org/works/813047||There was a practical application to almost every area of his life, the hard reality of being a double-oh in employ of country. He came with a list of relatives only one long, and that not even real but affected, but Kincade felt too much like a father to ignore the fact of him. He maintained a list of contacts and sentiments as short anymore as that, because such chances were more cruel than even he could be, and more selfish than even he could fathom. He kept his hair short and his suits neat and his gun loaded. He kept his shoes tied. He kept his earbud in. He kept his eyes open.||M for Mature||character study||a very interesting look at how Bond might see himself and his relationship with Q|

A retelling of Skyfall, as it might have happened in Elizabethan England.
|T for Teen||Alternate Universe (e.g., historical AU, Bond and Q are squirrels, etc)||I LOVE THIS. THAT IS ALL.|
