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.

Title: synchromesh
Author/Artist: foolish_m0rtal, 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.

Title: Obscura
Author/Artist: 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.

Title: Bright Lights
Author/Artist: valinorean, jellycrown, 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.
