Heads up: move to dreamwidth

Hello everyone - or anyone who is still watching!

I'm importing this community to dreamwidth for no other reason than because I wanted there to be a back up. Dreamwidth is busy atm so the import is in progress, all entries and comments will have moved over in about 48 hours.

The community can be found at 00q_bigbang.

(no subject)

I've had a couple of PMs lately about the next round of the bigbang, so I thought I'd update the community.

There are currently no plans to have a second round of the 00Q bigbang this year, but there will most likely be one next year. I'll update this place and tumblr well in advance. Don't expect the dates for the next round of the fest to be similar to the dates of the last round.

I'm pleased that there's still interest in this fest and I'm sorry there won't be another round this year - it's for purely personal reasons. I've had a really stressful 2013 so I'm keeping my fandom participation as low-key as possible this year.

There are two teams that haven't completed their fics yet, but that I expect will post sometime within the next couple of weeks. I'll add them to the list when they've posted their works.

Team #5 synchromesh

Title: synchromesh
Author/Artist: [livejournal.com profile] foolish_m0rtal, [livejournal.com profile] chosenfire28
Rating: T
Pairing/characters: James Bond/Q, Eve Moneypenny & Q friendship, Boothroyd
Warnings/content: reference to death of children
Medium/Word count: 17594
Summary: "I should let you know that MI6 is not in the habit of ceding to terrorists," Q tells him with chilly poise. "But it is after hours, and this is at least a halfway decent kidnapping."
Bond's answering hum of amusement resonates and mingles with the sound of the revving engine.
Notes: This story is actually derived from a large WIP of a story that I might post later on as a director's cut version.
Disclaimer: I do not own Skyfall

Team #2: Obscura

Title: Obscura
Author/Artist: [livejournal.com profile] twilightscribe, tonosamanjuu, assasyngal
Rating: R
Pairing/Characters: James Bond/Q ; includes very one-sided Dominic Greene/Q ; Dominic Greene, Silva, Vesper, Severine
Warnings/Content: Highlight to read *Warnings are for blood, torture, violence, implied and threatened rape, threats of forced non-consensual impregnation, violence against animals, disturbing images of childbirth, character death, and other horror themes. Contains talk of male impregnation and pregnancy, werewolf!Bond, other mythological and alchemical ideas and elements.*
Medium/Word count: 35517 words
Summary: When he woke up in a dungeon, it was only the start of this living nightmare he found himself in. The only ally that Q finds in this place is a wolf that isn't all he appears to be. As it stands, though, with him being chased after for something he doesn't know or understand, Q has one goal in mind: survive.
Notes: Honestly, I just wanted an excuse to write a 00Q Haunting Ground AU. This was a labour of intense love and a good amount of obsessive MUST FINISH FOR THE GREATER GOOD. I have to say, I'm happy with finishing it – it's my first time successfully completing a big bang. Damn, I am so proud of myself why are you so long fic you should not be this long.
Disclaimer: I cannot stake a claim to Skyfall nor any other affiliated parts of the James Bond franchise, not to mention any other influences of which you might find traces or references within.

Medium/Word count: 78 260
Summary: It starts when Q accidentally makes 007 immortal. Things only get more complicated from there. (OR that Skyfall/general mythology crossover the world has been waiting for.)

*posting for team #9 because they don't have LJ accounts :)

Team #1: Bright Lights

Title: Bright Lights
Author/Artist: [livejournal.com profile] valinorean, [livejournal.com profile] jellycrown, [livejournal.com profile] milky_haven
Rating: NC-17 (for very brief explicit scene)
Pairing/characters: James Bond/Q
Warnings/content: none
Medium/Word count: ~15k
Summary: James is a kickass double-oh agent who may be flirting with the new Quartermaster a little. He goes to sleep and wakes up in a different world where he is the owner of a quaint little coffee shop, and his favourite regular is a graduate student working on his thesis who is always there because of the free Wi-Fi. James may be in love with him a little. Then he goes to sleep again and he's back in MI6 working with the snarky Q, and he thinks he's going crazy because he isn't sure which is real anymore.
Notes: This fic is inspired by the tv series Awake (Jason Isaacs!), and the first scene is a blatant ripoff from the series' commercial. :D Much love to Fate and Jellycrown for collaborating with me (actually, for putting up with me; I am the worst, I know!) on this 00Q Bigbang project. And an outpouring of gratitude to my amazing beta, Katie, for always being there and ready to give a helping hand.

Summary:For a long moment Q just stands there, tries to remind himself that air is good, breathing is great and he should really calm down or he'll end up doing something stupid.

00Q bb - A Rush of Blood to the Head

Title: A Rush of Blood to the Head
Author: Casstea
Artists: Gundamuubitch and Rerumfragmenta
Rating: T
Pairing/characters: (if you have any secondary pairings, you should list them also) James Bond/Q
Warnings/content: Highlight to read *Violence (nothing 15+), swearing*
Medium/Word count: ~25,000 words
Summary:
Humans are not as alone in the universe. There are other realms, other races which coexist on earth, hidden in the few shadows which humanity has not touched.

The Faey are such a race. Known as the Guardians of the Earth, their job is to protect the Earth and cultivate it - like gardeners. Every thirty human years, a Faey is chosen by Fate to have their Rage awoken. They are given a target, a human, to hunt down and kill to gain their ather becoming one of the chosen raised to be a Guardian of the Earth. There is great honour to be chosen by Fate to travel into the human realm, an honour which is not lightly thrown away.

Q is chosen to travel into the human world, where he waits for the one Fate has chosen to kill to appear. Yet his target is not as he expected, and soon Q finds himself not wishing to kill his charge, a small boy named James Bond.

However, Fate does not like to be ignored.

Notes: Full A/N are in the fic, but after a long time in creation, here is my contribution to the 00Qbb! :)
Disclaimer: I don’t own James Bond, this is written for fun and not for profit. The title of this fic comes from the Coldplay album of the same name. Some scenes and lines are lifted straight out of either Casino Royale or Skyfall, to which I claim no ownership.

Team # 16: Intimacies of Print

Title: Intimacies of Print
Author/Artist: [livejournal.com profile] rivestra | kavinskysdick | [livejournal.com profile] charlies_dragon
Rating: Explicit
Pairing/characters: Q/Bond
Warnings/content: Highlight to read *The parts of this story differ greatly in tone. Violence (beyond canon-typical), non-graphic unsafe BDSM, submissive themes, sensory deprivation, and serious dubcon (in another fandom, I might call it noncon, but 'in the line of duty' is big, confusing part of Bond's job description—watch your triggers). You'll also find a lot of tenderness and a fluffy flashback to Bond's fourth Christmas so... *
Medium/Word count: 16,400 words

Summary: I'd forgotten me, but there I was, in the palm of your hand. A collection of private messages, emails, chats, articles, transcripts, alerts and introspections chronicling the growing intimacy between a Quartermaster and his agent during iced-in winter mission. Along the way, Bond outs them both at work, remotely rescues Q's cat, invites Q to move in with him, is surprised to learn he's got a strong submissive side, and makes it very difficult for Q to keep him alive, even while making absolutely no progress on his mission (and Q's got quite enough to do on his own). Also, sometimes there are bad guys.

Team #15: Do I Wake or Sleep?

Title: Do I Wake or Sleep?

Author/Artist: Winterhill / JustGot1 / Gundamuubitch

Rating: Adult

Pairing/characters: Bond/Q. Past pairings (some of which appear in flashbacks): Q/OMC, Q/T.E Lawrence, Bond/Vesper, Bond/others mentioned in passing. M/Silva mentioned in passing. Other characters: M, Silva, Severine, Eve, Felix.

Warnings/content: Highlight to read *Major character deaths throughout, because this is an AU where Q and Bond are grim reapers. Q starts the story dead, Bond dies quickly after but both are effectively immortal throughout the story. Permanent deaths (i.e. not becoming reapers) happen as in Skyfall, but usually lead to a happy afterlife. References to past torture (mainly Q on the receiving end), some murders with associated gore (Severine, OCs), and some extremely minor bloodplay (Q helps Bond dig out the shrapnel from his shoulder and he likes it).*

Word count: ~42500

Summary: Bond is MI6’s latest reaper -- a conveyer of souls from this world to the afterlife -- and he’s not too impressed by his new working conditions. Q has been with the Secret Intelligence Service since the beginning, and he’s so lonely that he wants to die — except for the fact that he’s already dead and has been for a hundred years or so. M has no idea what to do with either of them, but to make matters worse, someone’s just blown up her office and a hacker called Silva is on the loose. Loose fusion with the TV show Dead Like Me — some of the universe from the TV show is used, some is original. You definitely don’t need to have watched the show for it to make sense.

Notes: Thanks to 51stcenturyfox for the beta, and thanks to both artists for your beautiful work ♥

Disclaimer: These are fan works; there is no official association with the creators of either canon.

team #3: swear them to the sky

Title: swear them to the sky
Author/Artist: skylights / epithalmium & thislostcastaway (AO3/tumblr)
Rating: T+
Pairing/characters: James Bond/Q
Warnings/content: Highlight to read: *religious themes, violence in latter chapters*
Medium/Word count: 44,569 words
Summary:

This is a story about choices. About murder. About grief. About anger and fear and hope, and all the things we end up doing because of each.

This is a story about push and pull. About dancing around each other, quartermaster to agent, cross-continent and undercover.

But above all, this is a story about spies with dragons.

(Or to be more succinct: British nationals keep dying overseas, interesting bets are being made, and some dragons think things would be a lot simpler if a certain double-oh agent would just get together with his Quartermaster already.)


Notes:

Written for 00Q Big Bang 2013

Many, many thanks and adorations to:

The amazing epithalamium and thislostcastaway (tumblr/AO3) for the lovely artwork

Lisa, Danielle and Alexis for being the most patient betas ever <3

Major themes in this fic are borrowed from Naomi Novik's amazing Temeraire series, which everyone should go and read because holy shit, dragons! Prior knowledge of anything from that AU is not required though :D

Team #10: the way we come undone

Title: the way we come undone (i'll have to watch you play the part)
Author: blackidyll (I'm using my LJ account to post this!)
Artist: Neyllya
Rating: Teen/PG-13
Pairing/characters: James Bond/Q; James Bond, Q, Gareth Mallory (as M), Eve Moneypenny, Bill Tanner
Warnings/content: Highlight to read *Non-graphical use of electricity in an experimental context, with brief descriptions of its effects*
Medium/Word count: 34,136
Summary: Q and Estelle have crossed plenty of boundaries in their capacity as the Quartermaster team, but when it comes to research on the human-daemon link, Q can’t sacrifice ethics for practically. Not quite. (Not yet).

Bond has always felt an overwhelming need to protect the ones he has allowed to matter, a care he extends to his daemon. Of course, Bailey feels quite the same, and their reckless streak leads them to pushing the limits of the human-daemon bond in an attempt to preserve it.

(A Skyfall/His Dark Materials fusion in that this fic takes place after the events of Skyfall, with the sole addition that everyone has a daemon. All Craig!Bond canon applies).
Notes: All my love to my beta Milaryn for catching all my super silly mistakes and enduring my constant rants during the writing of this fic
Disclaimer: The original James Bond universe was created by Ian Fleming, while the daemon etiquette/properties referenced in this fic are based on Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials universe. Eon Productions is responsible for this incarnation of 007 and Q. (Fic title comes from Basia Bulat's Snakes and Ladders)

Team 12: The Mating Dance of Wolf and Fox

Title: The Mating Dance of Wolf and Fox
Author:TheCatOnTheMoon
Artist: epithalmium
Rating: PG-13
Pairing/characters: James Bond/Q, one-sided OC/Moneypenny
Warnings/content: Highlight to read *brief mention of ephebophilia *
Medium/Word count:22,550
Summary: 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 007. Strictly for professional purposes, of course.
Notes:Lots of love and gratitude to the amazing bravofiftyone for her betaing/Britpicking and infinite patience. :)
Disclaimer: The Bond franchise does not belong to me (unfortunately). This is a fanmade-work not intended for profit and is not meant to be based on any real situations/characters.

Team #18 - Creature Comforts

Title: Creature Comforts

Author: entangledwood

Artist: rerumfragmenta (link goes straight to the artsy bits :D )

Rating: PG-13

Pairing/characters: James Bond/Q, Alec Trevelyan/Eve Moneypenny, past James Bond/Tracy Bond

Warnings/content: Highlight to read * Alternate Universe, dehumanisation of the Charge, implied torture in the name of behaviour readjustment, de-facto slavery*

Word count: ~17500

Summary: James was once Tracy’s Charge, but when he finally convinced her to marry him, she was killed by a rogue Charge. After that he was passed from Handler to Handler but he just keeps getting rid of them.
Q meanwhile is a top student who just graduated from the Handler’s Academy. He expected to get a newbie Charge to learn with, but instead he got the incomparable James Bond.
Neither quite knows what to do with the other.

Notes: thanks a lot to insatiablyyours for the excellent Beta and to interrosand for more valuable feedback

Disclaimer: This story is a work of fiction based on another work of fiction based on a fictional story. I don’t intend to make any money with it.

Posting procedure

Hello everyone! Because August is just around the corner, I thought I'd give you a quick rundown of the posting procedure so that we're all ready to go. :D

1. You post your works on your own platform. It doesn't matter if it's tumblr, livejournal, ao3, dreamwidth, your blogspot or whatever else you've got.

2. One person in your team makes a post to this community containing the links to your works. I'll ask you to please use the following header when you make this post:


You can modify the header according to your needs, but as a minimum the post needs to contain title of work, who made it, ratings and warnings, and of course the links.

3. That's...basically it. I'll make sure to create a bunch of tags that you can use for the posts to the comm. If a tag is missing, just let me know and I'll add it.

If you post your stuff to ao3, the fest collection is right here. If you make posts on tumblr, either with your works or as a masterpost or advertising post or whatever, and these links aren't in your LJ post, I'd love it if you send me the links so I can reblog your posts on the fest account. :)
