If you’ve followed me for awhile (before this website came into existence), then you may have seen many of my WIPs here on Google Docs. I’m going to see if I can transition them over to here slowly, but that page will always remain open (even if I don’t plan to update it as regularly as here).
For some of my WIPs, be aware that some are the pages that I actively type on – so there might be notes to myself within. They will be denoted either with brackets, or in blue (probably both), so you’ll be aware when you’ve left the story-proper and are heading into uncharted (i.e., not fully written) territory. Feel free to read any notes that are there, just don’t expect them all to make sense! For the most part, I try and create little ‘snippet’ documents that are just for you to read.
Polestar **no link yet, but should be posted in July 2017
This is a fic that I’ve been wanting to write for ages – and finally got the impetus to start after watching Cloud Atlas (which I do recommend, as it has Ben Whishaw in it, although it’s a total heart-breaker, so only watch if you want to cry a bit). Anyway: I’ve wanted to write a fic where Bond and Q reincarnate and meet again and again throughout the ages. The catch? Only Q remembers these reincarnations. This tells the story of a one-sided love-story that stretches for centuries up to the present, where the meddling of one Raoul Silva finally drags Q’s entire history out into the open – where Bond can finally see it.
Warnings: this is an angst-heavy fic, so read with your heart in your hands. It also gets dark: mentions of suicide (a few described), Q’s past deaths get referenced (he remembers them all), suicidal thoughts, dubious consent, homophobia, drug-use… did I mention this fic gets dark before the happy ending?
Cattails **no link yet, but IS finished, and should be posted in July 2017
I really need to work on a better title for this one… This story is actually totally completed, and I’m just holding it back until the July 00Q-fest. It all started when, ironically, I was watching an anime with cat-ears involved, and suddenly I needed any excuse to have Bond petting Q’s cat ears. And somehow that morphed into Bond kidnapping a cat-Q, and suddenly I’m writing a shorter, fluffier version of Nodus Tollens. Basically, Bond is on the run in Russian, and needs a hostage – and the nearest person is a cat-eared boffin, whom he ends up briefly running with. And befriending. And taking back home to London.
Warnings: by and large, this is a fluffy fic, but there is mentions of slavery, and technically Bond does scare Q quite a bit when he kidnaps him
Bond Had… Habits **no link yet, but should be posted in July 2017
I’ve been writing an ace-Bond fic (Aces Grey – see my Posting Now page), but somehow, I began writing from another angle as well: What if Q was asexual? This is basically a story of Q living his life with no interest in sex, but a growing interest (and frustration) in Bond and his various habits of touching people without thinking. Touching like that means a lot to Q, but how is he to explain to MI6’s most sexually active agent that Q just wants cuddles but no sex…?
Warnings: no warnings so far, although I think that Q is going to get drugged by a stranger at a bar at once point (but don’t worry, 00-agents are watching over him)
This fic will hopefully be posted with the above fics in July, but it is still a lot on the drawing board (so read the link at your own risk). This is the dark!Bond multiple-crossover that no one asked for: in the future, the Sybil System watches everything, and determines via complicated computer algorithms and data from every electronic in existence who is a danger to society – and those people are summarily incarcerated or eliminated. Some dangerous individuals, however (labeled as having a ‘high Psycho-pass’ – some of you might get the reference to an anime by the same name), are kept as agents of the government, although they take careful handling. It takes a monster to hunt monsters, but monsters are dangerous by definition. To name some of those monsters: Hannibal Lecter (Hannibal) , Harry Hart (Kingsmen), Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock), and our very own Alec Trevelyan and James Bond. Others might feature as well… The corresponding pairings are keepers of these dangerous agents: Will Graham (who just might have a high Psycho-pass after all), Eggsy Unwin, John Watson, and our very own Mallory and Q. So what happens when a supposedly low Psycho-pass individual named Moriarty ends up infiltrating the organization and putting it in a blackout…? Get prepared for the hunt of a lifetime, in which predator and prey are all human, and you don’t know who your allies are.
Warnings: dark!Bond (who will actually be quite nice to Q, don’t worry – he’ll be just a bit scarier than he was in Blue-Eyed Monster), mentions of cannibalism (Hannibal is predictable that way), and probably some general creepiness
My Demons Play Well With Yours **no link yet, but should be posted in July 2017
In a world where demons are known, in the wake of the first attack on MI6, M thinks that just the thing they need… is a demon to protect the place. Enter Q: genius, hacker, and very territorial for the place he now calls home. Not everyone is happy about having a demon in MI6, however. So when James and Q meet for the first time – James, who has killed demons before – everyone is placing bets on which one of them will survive the other.
What actually results in not what anyone expects.
Warnings: flagrant misuse of curses plagues and other demonic capacities; blood; slightly offensive religious jokes; rough sex (but all consensual)
I Will Be Your Scarecrow
For those of you who know my Random Q-ness page, this WIP is listed as “Warlocks AU,” but it’s got a real name now, at least in my head. I decided to write 00Q in an AU where magic is known – and those who have it are split into two groups: Warlocks/Witches (who have a wide variety of magical powers, and also single-colored eyes), and Casters (who are far less powerful, having usually just one magical niche, and eyes that are a mix of colors, like hazel). Casters are generally looked down upon for being weaker, but there’s another catch: Casters can get addicted to Warlock/Witch magic… and Q is in the thick of a lot of just that kind of magic, and he’s got an addictive personality…
Warnings: yes, Q gets addicted to Warlock magic (which first means being attacked by the villain, who starts the addiction without Q’s consent)
Bark and Stammer
This is technically a fic in two fandoms: Skyfall and Sherlock. John/Sherlock is the main pairing, but it’s included on this page because there’s also some epic 00Q in here. This snippet is a bit short (the majority of the fic I’ve hidden elsewhere, so that I don’t lose all of my mystery), so I’ll give a better summary:
When John gets bitten by a mystery dog and earns himself a wound that just won’t heal, Sherlock worries that his past may be coming back to bite him. Werewolves live in London, even if the general populace doesn’t know it. Sherlock is one of the few in the know, but he’ll need help explaining if he’s going to tell John not only that Werewolves exist but that he’s been bitten by one. So Sherlock goes to the biggest employer of Werewolves in the UK: MI6. Whereupon we all get to meet two very familiar faces…
Warnings: Werewolf AU is more of a tag, less of a warning… but graphic violence is definitely going to be tagged in this. Moriarty (definitely a warning).
This idea actually sort of started while I was co-writing When the Sky Falls, and I got the opportunity to write Bond as a bit of a masochist. So here, I’m going to see if I can explore that a bit! It’s a Dom/Sub-verse, with each designation coming with some nifty abilities… and a few exceptions to the rules. I’m still in the process of setting everything up, but it’s growing slowly!
Warnings: none so far that I can think of
