    Summary

    Technically Q's name and personal details are classified and beyond the purview of field agents, but he's worked for Q branch for ten years and had gone by his actual name for eight of them. His identity is as much of a "secret" as his ineptitude at filing financial reports.

    Summary

    “Absolutely, unequivocally no, you’re not getting a Bentley. Of all the vintage cars in the world, did you have to break into that one?”
    “At least ask him where he got it,” says Bond, cajoling.
    “He made a pact with the devil,” says Q. “Which you cannot do, as I believe you are already spoken for.”

     

    In which Wensleydale and Pepper grow up and join MI6 so they can continue saving the world. One becomes the youngest Quartermaster in history. The other shoots James Bond.

    Summary

    Bond didn’t do families. He had one, once, that he vaguely remembered. He’d met the occasional target’s parents, but only when it was unavoidable, and never as more than part of an investigation. M had come the closest to being something of a maternal figure in Bond’s life (“at least I got something right”), but even at that she was more his commanding officer than anyone remotely affectionate.

    This was why, when Q explained (rather forcefully) that he didn’t want Bond to have anything to do with his family, Bond didn’t object.

    Unhappily for both of them, it didn’t make any difference.

    Summary

    James is one of the Royal Airmen's finest. Q is an engineer who designs the ships that made England rich on flight-ore. He's also the Queen's favourite ward, or so rumours go.

    Ostensibly, the Airmen weren't warships anymore since the war with Spain and France was officially over. But treason never sleeps. (In which James captains a flying ship and is almost a pirate for queen and country; Q is still afraid of flying - and really this is just another story between a besotted sailor and sweetheart; a ship and a lighthouse).

    Pseudo-steampunk, with less steam and more tech; flying ships and gravity-defying architecture.

    (This is 00q centric but the universe does involve Kingsman and characters play a role here. Kingsman centric plot is posted separately!)
