00Q AU fic rec
It’s AU Day!
And because there are so many awesome AU stories out there, I thought I would rec a few of them, mind you, some of them will be well known throughout the fandom, but maybe someone will see one they don’t already know, or read a story again? I know I read most of them multiple times, because AUs!
A really good modern day fantasy AU. I like the world building and I’m always weak for stories where Bond trusts Q, who just isn’t sure why.
Pen and Paper is just an overall really fluffy AU story about Q being Bonds pen pal while he is in the Navy. Also I wholeheartedly approve of everything with the mention of a penguin in it ;)
Alternate Universe in which Q has a daugther from a previous relationship. And it just fits? The interaction between the characters is very well written and I love how the trust is build between the three over the course of the story.
A beautiful Shapeshifter AU, with Bond having an unusual shift (and can I just say, I love what it is). I adore how Bond is self-conscious about his shift and how Q is just there for him <3
Q as an unwilling
time traveler from the past, and Bond being the overprotective agent
we know he can be if he cares about someone. It’s really funny to have a Q not proficient with computers, but he is a fast learner.
AU with Q being a
computer call centre employee and Bond needing his help. I love their
flirting. Also Q and Eve friendship :)
Really there are so many fantastic AUs by Only_1_Truth but I always loved the Three’s company series the most, since it is a university AU and supernatural AU in one! And I love everything about it, how the characters interact, their supernatural gifts, everything just fits and it is a delightful read all around.
Teashop AU that is absolutely adorable. Pining Q, flirting Bond, and tea (or coffee if you are Bond). A very fluffy read.
An awesome fantasy AU. I love how Q and Bonds banter is written, and I mean, Dragon!Bond, what more can you want?
A Post-Hogwarts AU, with both Q and Bond being wizards, and it is brilliant. I love the confusion and the pining, but most of all I love Bonds Hogwarts house.
This are of course only a few of the awesome AU fics in this fandom, and it was hard enough to narrow it down even to this, so generally a great thank you to all the awesome writers, you have my eternal gratitude, keep up the good work <3
