 Yet again they were leaving England, and yet again Q was being forced onto a plane. It felt like he'd only just returned, but lately it was one thing after another- Or, perhaps, like M needed to prove something. Though Q wasn't yet certain to whom or why...

He'd kicked up his usual fuss, but his tantrums weren't terribly volatile, and he'd wound up where he'd known he'd inevitably find himself- Sitting in a hard plastic seat in the middle of Heathrow, awaiting their flight.

"I want it noted that I'm still upset about all this. I'm perfectly capable of providing intel from my office- Or my bed," he added, still sulking about being woken early and forced to abandon his pyjamas in favour of actual clothes.

"You know, some people find the travel aspect of this job to be one hell of a benefit," Bond countered. "You won't ever experience Kiev if you never leave your bed."

"This isn't certain doom, Q. It's the mob, and from the briefing last night I'd say not a particularly bright arm of it. We'll be there and gone before you know it," Bond said confidently.

"Q," Bond said when the glasses were clean and back on his face. "Why exactly does flying bother you so much? You work with explosives and much more dangerous tech all the time. Why is it a plane that makes you like this?"

The corner of his mouth tugged up an a salacious smirk and he took the invitation and let his gaze rake over Q.

"Depends on what you're doing in the field. You'r not made to run, but having you close works out well for us."

Now boarding...

Before Bond could say a word it was time to get on the plane. First class, of course. Bond didn't fly economy. When he could get away with it he didn't even fly commercial.

Once they were on with bags stowed and mimosas for breakfast in their hands, Bond brought up a new subject to try to keep Q's mind occupied.

"What did Moneypenny tell you as we were leaving?" he asked.

"It might have something to do with the dispute in Crimea," Bond replied. "Though it's not one I've heard of, either. Odd she'd warn you but not loop you in."

Bond's brow furrowed at that and he leveled his gaze at Q.

"What's your read on M lately? Does he seem particularly driven to you?"

Bond wasn't going to toy with the idea that it was about them. That Moneypenny might be trying to warn Q off Bond in some way. When it came to the Russians...Bond had a past. It wouldn't be entirely out of line.

Bond drank his mimosa and finished it just as the flight attendant came round to tell them to buckle in. She took his glass, promising to bring another.

It would have taken Bond five times as long to pull all that together- certainly not in time for the information to have been of much use. Thank god for Q.

Even if it wasn't news he'd wanted to hear.

"I was just an operative," he confirmed. "We traded Lyu his first commander for three former Soviet KGB operatives involved in the underground pro-Soviet movement selling former military weapons. His commander, I remember, was a chemist. It was a bad trade- he was one of few who knows how to manufacture a V class nerve agent and has the contacts to disburse. A bad trade, but M felt it was worthwhile. The sacrifices we must make..."

"And why would she tell you and not me?" Bond said, just a bit defensive about that. "ANd why would she not want M in on this? Something doesn't seem right...But I do trust her. She has good instincts..."

Even if she did have awful aim.

Bond didn't like that prospect at all. Not a bit. That Moneypenny would feel the need to warn him away was...no. Unthinkable.

But maybe Kiev would be more than they'd bargained for.

Bond took another mimosa and then sullenly looked out the window.

Bond knew with the weight of the name what it meant. The value of it- and what it cost Q to say it aloud. He turned his head slowly to look at him. Even with the knowledge he could only think of the man across from him as Q. It was almost as if any other identity was a fiction. Not real. Not true- or at least not true now. Once upon a time it may have been.

"I wish I had something to share with you that means as much," he said softly. "But you already have everything of me that might be of any value."

"I want to know everything," Bond assured him, placing his other hand on top of Q's. "Bu you don't have to tell me right now. It's just turbulence. Here...let me hold you. It'll pass."

He understood the reasoning behind it, but Bond didn't see the plane going down. Turbulence happened all the time.
