    Summary

    One of the definitions of 'sciamachy' is to fight with shadows... and Q is about to go to the place where shadows are housed and used by the government.

    In today's world, the Sybil System is everyone's conscience: by looking at data (everything from Facebook posts to security cameras) this AI can determine what people are criminals before they can do wrong. Some criminals, though, are dangerous enough to outrun her for a time - those criminals, when caught, are put to use instead of put down. After all, what better way to hunt down monsters than with the better monsters?

    Enter Q. He's not dangerous - at least to the common eye - and he's perfect for the job of Quartermaster for all of these 'better monsters.' But he's got an agenda, and he's not the only one...

    Or: the dark!AU crossover fic that nobody asked for, in which the Sybil System has labeled everyone 'good' and 'bad,' and you don't know if you can trust anyone. And it might be the so-called 'good' ones that you have to watch the most...

    "This is just getting ridiculous," M says when he finds Q trying to put motorized circular saw blades into a briefcase.

    (Or, Q and James Bond love their jobs so very, very much.)

    Summary

    Q has been up for three days running missions and guzzling caffeine. Now that he is allowed to sleep, he can't. James Bond patiently tries to help him go to sleep, but Q proves very frustrating. Alec is just in the background, but is around. (This is a parody of "Go the Fuck to Sleep".)

    Summary

    “You’re an expert at the challenging, though. I have handled—personally, mind you—three double-O agents, and not one of them has been the exasperation that you so continuously prove. You don’t think. Someone who doesn’t think doesn’t deserve hot water.”

    Or, the one where Q controls the universe with technology and Bond is trying to avoid complications (like falling for the voice in his head).

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “I wanted very badly not to,” he said. “You were an interest, and then you were a surprise, and then you were a problem, and then you were you, and I knew that I was—” Yours, he almost said, but it was what he had said to Vesper, and it was unfair to her and unfair to Q to bring her ghost into it. “Gone. Completely. I’ve been tied to chairs that I could have gotten away from better than I could manage to get away from you.”

    Terrifying but delightful.
