The mission had, honestly, started out quite well. They'd made their way to Greenland, infiltrated the secure and 'secret' data centre of an underground online movement who had been storing encrypted data that MI6 had no interest in seeing unravelled, and allowing anyone with the knowledge to find it, download and attempt to decrypt it. 

The hackers weren't radicals, not even hacktivists- Just ambitious dabblers who'd stumbled onto something bigger than they'd realized. 

The pair had managed to get in an out without even spilling blood- Replacing the data with something harmless right under the hackers noses. ...However, their presence alone had been enough to clue in a few less savoury characters to the possible goldmine on those hard drives. Before the pair could leave the country, they'd found themselves hunted by not one, but three different organizations.

Which was how they'd found themselves here, hidden away in a small bunker left over from one of the World Wars (two, most likely), eating army rations and awaiting further instruction via satellite phone. ...Except Six had gone silent for the time being, and the last time either of them had dared to peek outside the bunker, they'd only narrowly avoided a bullet to the head.

"This is actually quite nice," Q said, eating another spoonful of rice from the silver packet on his knee. "We should get some of these for the house. ...For emergencies, of course."

Q's laptop was nearby, and it pinged quietly, causing Q to lean over and tap a few keys before returning to his meal.

Bond was more than ready to get orders and get moving. Being trapped, caged, it was maddening. Surely he could find enough bullets to get them out of here and he knew that one of their adversaries had arrived by helicopter. They really only needed to get to that...

But the orders they had were clear. Sit down and behave until Six could work it out. So Bond ate a spoonful of cherries in gelee and huffed through his nose.

"We could," he sulked. "For emergencies."

He chewed a plump cherry with a vicious gnashing of his teeth, taking out his aggression on the blameless fruit.

"It's probably something Churchill came up with after the Blitz. Cold War secrets," he offered absently, his mind ruminating on shooting those keeping them pinned in place.

Bond looked at him then and for a moment his selfish bloodlust ceased. He offered Q a smile, albeit a tight one.

"I like that you're safe," he admitted. "And, no, it's not terrible being trapped with you. Not at all."

"I'd suggest you let me go out and handle it and then I'll fetch you," he said. "It's going to be bloody. Unless...well...unless M sends in the cavalry."

"THat is a very good question. I wish I knew," Bond said. "M has to know I'll oly wait for so long before I take matters into my own hands. I would assume he thinks you're going to keep me on a leash," he said, then spooned another cherry into his mouth.

"You are much too clever," Bond smiled. He put his empty tin aside. "Let's do it. I'll get the phone out...hopefully without too much fuss."

...Though the way he said it it was obvious he was hoping for at least a bit of fuss.

Bond understood that look and he nodded, just once, very slowly.

"I'll be quite careful with your phone," he promised, and then checked his gun to make sure it was in working order. "When you're ready...say the word," he added, then took up space at the door.

He was quick, opening the door a crack, then fully to dart out. Shots rang out- and were returned. Soon enough Bond was out of ammo and he played the role of a man afraid and he ducked back inside.

"Your phone may be a bit dirty, but it's secure," he said.

There was a small tear in his sleeve from where he'd been winged.

"I'll have to be quiet...until I get a gun. I can handle five," he nodded. "Not a problem. Work your magic, Q. Just whisper in my ear when you're ready for me to get to it," he said. It was swathed with innuendo and accompanied by a smile a bit more smug than seductive. Bond was in his element. He knew Q hated the field when it was like this but the double o lived for it.

Bond rushed out into the fray. On Q's screen his form moved quickly, finding a man and killing him easily, then stealing his gun.The pesticide rained down, stinging his eyes and burning his nose, even as he puled his shirt over his face to filter his air. It made little difference.

Bond came upon two men choking and gagging and he dispatched them both. He couldn't hear Q so he began to hunt his prey, eyes watering and lungs burning.

THe air began to clear and one man got a couple shots off before Bond killed him. And then out of nowhere the last man lunged at the double o, knocking the gun from his hands. He began to fight for his very life, beating the man- but they were well matched and he took his licks, too. It was no easy thing to take this last one.

They were well matched and blow for blow they wore one another down. But Bond saw an opportunity and smashed the man's nose, then grabbed him in a headlock. Moments later the telltale crack of bone and the man dropped like a stone from Bond's arms.

But now he was gasping and coughing, the pesticide painting his tongue with a bitter taste. He hurried back to the bunker to get Q...and mostly to get to some clean air.

"Yes," he gasped. "But we have to go now." His voice was rough and raw, the chemical giving him a gravelly rumble. He didn't say any more, just pointed to the computer, then gesturing to the door to go. He'd had a few clear breaths and though he sounded awful he felt better for it.

Bond's reply was a cough and a withering look that melted into gratitude. He dragged Q along briskly to the helicopter left by one of the assault teams.

"You'll have to close your eyes and pretend we're not flying," he said through the scarf. "Get in."
