“And here today, I remember this, I think, from Tennyson: We are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are. One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will. To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”


Fandom: James Bond

A/N: Bleh, I turned into a bond girl after watching Spectre last week. I re-watched Skyfall like twice and now I think Q is the most adorable human being on Earth…the troubles of being a fangirl. Btw this takes place in the middle of Skyfall. (Sorry if it doesn’t make much sense, in the timeline.)


You’ve been working for MI6 for roughly five years now. The whole incident with Raoul Silva was quite devastating, especially since you were caught in the crossfire of the explosion at the ‘old’ MI6 headquarters. You weren’t seriously injured, but a bang to the head and a few days in bed was what you got. Other people…weren’t so lucky. Six of your colleagues were dead, you could clearly see the grief in everyone’s eyes. You only came back a few days later to be greeted by M and…someone you haven’t met before. “Ah, 00[n]. Great to see you are back on your feet again.” M greeted you with the warmest look she could muster. “Pleasure to be back to work, Ma’am.” You replied almost instantly. “This is your new Quartermaster…you’ll report back to him with your equipment after completed missions.” Suddenly M’s phone went off, she looked down at it… “Looks like I have to take my leave…meeting with the Prime Minister with Tanner.” You rolled your eyes at this, “Good luck with that Ma’am.”  The prime minister can be a bloody bitch sometimes. But what prime minister isn’t…I’m here to protect the queen and her country. M left the room and I was left with the new quartermaster, who was busy typing away on his laptop.

personally the biggest mystery in Skyfall is how Bond and Silva managed to slide down the escalators in the Tube with completely straight faces

like, both of them have undoubtedly lived and worked in London for a long time. they’ve probably taken the Tube thousands of times. from my experience riding Tube escalators several times a day, those metal slides in the middle call your name incessantly. I can see it on everyone’s faces. I know it’s on mine. we’re all thinking it. if the purge happened in London, the only thing everyone would do would be slide down those escalators. I know that Bond and Silva thought about it every time they were down there.

and you’re telling me that when they finally, finally got to slide down it, they look exactly how I’d picture they would look doing their taxes? please
