None yet.

Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

No Rest by captain_tots
  • Recommended by: Lexi Dizzle
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Sévérine is barely sixteen when she meets Raoul Silva, who offers her an escape from her life of slavery. But, she soon learns that Silva's kindness comes at a price, as she finds herself sucked into a deadly criminal enterprise, and in love with a man who is seeking revenge above all else.
  • Comments: The origin story of Skyfall's Disposable Woman, Sévérine. Not for the squeamish, as there are discussion/depictions of sex-slavery, child prostitution, rape and sexual assault, drug addiction, an unhealthy consensual relationship, and of course loads and loads of plain old violence. Absolutely heartbreakingly beautiful.

Hypocrisy Was Our Text by neveralarch

  • Synopsis: When Andrew Bond and Monique Delacroix Bond die in 1572, they leave behind a small freehold, a large house, and a very small, very angry boy. A retelling of Skyfall, as it might have happened in Elizabethan England.
  • Comments: Fresh, clever, and really gripping; makes the absolute most of its period setting without resorting to empty cliches. This fic does something really cool with canon characteristics/cultural roles for spies from such varied backgrounds and does some wickedly clever stuff with M as lady spymaster, Q as gadgeteer, and Silva's uniquely grisly hangups. (Contains roughly canon levels of somewhat more mutual Silva/Bond.)

  • Synopsis: In which Eve is secretly Qs BFF, Bond and Q clumsily end up being sort-of-bros, and Q is such a fucking hipster, you guys dont even know.
  • Comments: A hilarious and surprisingly sweet take on Q and Bond developing a working relationship and friendship, with a handy helping of Q's backstory and personal life. The slice-of-life writing style and balance of humour and emotion make it a classic in the fandom.
