    Summary

    NOTE: YOU DO NOT NEED TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE SECRETS OF THE IMMORTAL NICHOLAS FLAMEL

    Quintavious Flamel; Quinn to his parents Nicholas and Perenelle Flamel. Born in the Year of Our Lord 1368. His father was born in 1330, and his mother 1320. When Quinn was six years old and his father was working in a bookshop, the Flamels were given a book called The Book of Abraham the Mage by a strange hook-handed man. The book, also known as the Codex, contained all the magical information in the world. And it was in this book that Nicholas discovered the secret to eternal life. But owning a book with all the information in the world creates an awful lot of enemies, and the Flamels swore they would dedicate their lives to protecting the Codex. After the reappearance of the Flamel’s most insistent pursuers, one Dr John Dee, Quinn decides enough is enough and begins to climb the Mi6 ladder to stay ahead. Quinn wasn’t counting on the backing of an entire terrorist network, or a certain blue-eyed gunman.

    Summary

    AU story in which Q is seriously injured when Blofeld’s men shoot at the car at the end of Spectre. Bond and the other agents realize just how much their Quartermaster means to them. Features OCs (Q’s friends and family) but no romantic pairings. Mostly hurt/comfort and family.

    Edit: Title spelling changed from "Bark" to "Barque" (as in, a bloody big ship) so it doesn't sound like a dog story.

    Summary

    “Hello. Can you hear me?”

    Bond would like to say no, just to distract himself from the lightning currently wrapped around his spine.

    “I think you’re dying but I would appreciate it if you didn’t. I’d feel obligated to dig a hole and that’s not really within my body’s capabilities.”

    He coughs in response, wet and uneven.

    “Oh, a collapsed lung. Thank you for that.”

    Perfect, Bond thinks. I’ve been saved by a smartass.

    Summary

    His accent has changed. It’s coarser, more working-class. James would never have expected that Q was faking that posh accent of his; it fit his personality so well. But then, did James even know what Q’s personality was? He never would have pegged Q the type to be emerging from a club at 3 in the morning, sweaty and high, cigarette between his lips and oddly modern, oddly stylish cheap clothes on just a bit too tight– but who would?

    Or, the one where, a few years after Alex Turner’s death, Daniel Holt has reinvented himself as Q, but every now and again he relapses to what he used to be. And it’s not always a good thing. And James Bond is confused and isn't good at Human-ing™.

    Summary

    Maelstrom: a situation or state of confused movement or violent turmoil.

    After the death of M, everyone is expecting Bond to go into a tailspin and lose himself to his self destructive ways, and so nobody really notices that instead it's the Quartermaster who is struggling the most, especially after a new mission arises that requires Q to delve back into his sordid past that he has spent the last few years burying deep within his subconscious. It all seems to quickly be becoming too much for Q to handle on his own. Will anyone at MI6 notice in time that Q is rapidly spiralling out of control and be able to intervene before he manages to completely destroy himself?

    Summary

    "At the end of the day, an oath of absolute fealty cannot be given to more than one person."

    In the world of shadows and lies, there is only one way of dealing with traitors. Permanently. Preferably by sending a bloodthirsty Double-0 agent after them. But in this particular case, even Britain’s most dangerous wildcards may not be able to contain the situation in time. For the mole has not been working alone — and in the aftermath of their disappearance, not even James Bond’s loyalty to the Crown remains certain.

    As old enemies resurface and new battle lines are drawn, MI6 faces its greatest challenge yet in Spectre, a criminal organization that has been growing in the shadows for years. Lead by an all-too familiar face: Q, MI6’s former quartermaster.

     

    (Meanwhile, halfway across the world, Alec Trevelyan, who has spent the last eight months in deep cover, receives a curious message from his lover.)
