Blackbird

James Bond didn’t need anything or anyone. He had already lost the war that circumstance had waged against him. When his affection for Q flared, he got the love he never had, and the home he never knew he was

So You Were Never a Saint

“I think Bond’s trying to be your friend,” Eve tells him. “…well,” Q says slowly, “this is a new and disturbing development.”

So If You Give

Bond gives Q things because of reasons. Q thinks that Bond completely misses the point.

A Bond of Matrimony

The one where Bond’s next mission involves going undercover with Q. Includes: banter, fake marriage, espionage, car chases, life-or-death situations, and Moneypenny taking far too much delight in the whole affair.

Puzzle of the Soul Untangled by Explosion

Two werewolf’s attempting to court one Quartermaster, before realizing how truly precious he is.

Thought Even the Bones Would Do

“Bond. How exactly did you involuntarily order a hit on Q?” “Drinking was involved.”

Impulsion

Before he leaves, Bond makes a request of Q. A silly request, and it’s all well and good until it comes in the post.

The Love Affair of Willoughby Holmes and James Bond

The youngest Holmes holds a minor position at MI6, but somehow still manages to do more damage than Mycroft at his worst. Post Skyfall AU, Q is a little younger and a tad more innocent, and Alec is a good

By No Ordinary Means of Communication

Q can’t help but wonder how, exactly, his life has come to this. (The one where Bond discovers post-it notes, Q discovers how not to talk about feelings, and together, they fight crime make things far more complicated than necessary.)

The Courtship of Mr. Bond

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.

If I Couldn’t Be Strong

But this? There was no excusing this as anything other than what it was. Pathetic longing, and a need to be close to Bond to comfort himself. Q couldn’t even pretend that he was visiting Bond to keep the man

It Doesn’t Take You Away From Yourself

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,

Series || Squad Goals

When the Sky Falls

Quint hates planes. Quint really, really hates planes. But with MI6 hunting him down, he hasn’t got much of a choice but to get on one. He should’ve known better. He really should’ve known better. In which there is a

Brave New World

After the events at Skyfall, life was different for Agent 007. M was gone—no, there was a new M. There was a new Headquarters. He had a new flat, in which he was still unpacking boxes of belongings. And–bloody hell!–an

British Sign Language for Dummies: How To Seduce Your Quartermaster

Q spoke with his hands, his beautiful silent hands, and James tried to listen. (Or in which Q is deaf, but is perfectly capable of working, and in which James tries to use his hands for something besides shooting.)

Ordinary Numbers

More than anything, Mike Taylor wanted to be ordinary. Being a genius, he learned early in life, meant people expected too much. A career at the MI6 Help Desk seemed the perfect way to guarantee a lifetime of obscurity, until

Series || Guided By the Beauty of Our Weapons

How they’re meant to play lovers when they can barely stand one another, Q will never know. He figures someone in Mallory’s office finds it funny. (warning for brief mentions of child sexual abuse not between main characters)

Series || Quriosity

Bond finds himself increasingly curious about his enigmatic Quartermaster.

Obfuscated

“Q.” “Mmm, yes, James?” “Q. Focus.” “Right. Schedule. Plan. Supplies. Got it.”

Red Queen to Overwatch

After returning from the dead, James Bond moves into a new secure flat, only to find that his new neighbour is either: a scruffy teenager, a brilliant computer geek, a mad scientist, or the sexiest genius he’s ever met. Two

The Mating Dance of Wolf and Fox

In which Moneypenny despairs of her boys, no one in MI6 is the least bit sane, Bond complains to HR about MI6’s workplace policies, Q insists that he is not a fainting maiden, and he might have to sleep with

Mercenary

Five years ago, Commander James Bond of Her Majesty’s Royal Navy left England in disgrace, escaping a court martial — and what should have been a promising career in MI6 with Alec Trevelyan, his oldest friend. He becomes a mercenary,

The Study

James Bond is an expert at planning first dates. When this one doesn’t make it out of Q’s study, he counts it as a success.

Series || The Marketplace

After Silva’s escape from MI6 custody, Alec Trevelyan drags MI6’s new, brilliant Quartermaster to the safest place he knows: Skyfall Lodge, home of reclusive ex-soldier, James Bond. Grudgingly, Q accepts the technological isolation as necessary for his own safety, and

The Offering Tree

In 1993, while on leave from the Royal Navy, James Bond brings Alec Trevelyan to Skyfall Lodge. There, he hopes to find the privacy and courage to discover if Alec is just interested in friendship or if he, like James,

Handle With Care

It’s not exactly a secret that Bond and Q are dating. Most people in the agency give Bond the shovel talk; everyone who doesn’t gives Q the “are you sure you know what you’re doing?” talk. Q and Bond ignore

Bewitched

A few months after the Skyfall incident, Q’s sister gives him the excuse he needs to finally take a last-minute holiday at her cottage in Wales, but a priority two security threat means Q can’t go alone. For James Bond,

The Love Song of James Bond

There was definitely a significant gap between the time Bond was breaking down over M’s death in the chapel to the time a confident Bond walked into Mallory’s office to accept his newest assignment. What, or more importantly, who, put
