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)
