Six M/Bond stories.

Fandom Category: James Bond (Craig)
Pairing: M/James Bond, M/Mr. M
Fic Title: Gifts and A View From The Sidelines
Author: lonelywalker
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/35518
Rating/Warning(s): R. Adultery.
Genre: Romance, Friendship, Angst, Espionage.
WIP?: Both are complete.

Why This Must Be Read: I'm not usually a fan of stories wherein adultery is the basis, but the situation - as presented in these stories - is not a betrayal in the way that it would be in another field. I love that at the center of these two stories - narrated by two men in a relationship with the same woman - is a woman that's unknowable and yet known to both of them. M breathes in these stories. And her affection, love, and appreciation of both men, and the way she knows them is, ultimately, the point. UGH, LOVE HER SO MUCH.


Fandom Category: James Bond (Craig)
Pairing: M/James Bond.
Fic Title: Walk a Mile
Author: scherryzade
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/169529
Rating/Warning(s): PG. Sexism!
Genre: Espionage, philosophy, friendship, UST?
WIP?: Complete.

Why This Must Be Read: This story is a bit of a response (but not entirely) to National Women's Day spot. It;s definitely more of a personalized thing on M's part - LOVE HER - but the heart of this is firmly in the places that Bond and M cannot (or will not) go. This story is quite gen, and is more of an exploration of gender politics on a institutional scale, but the hint of <i>what if</i> that underlines it is just fantastic.


Fandom: James Bond (Craig)
Pairing: M/James Bond
Fic Title: Better Days
Author: lonelywalker
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/187427
Rating PG-13?
Genre: Angst, romance.
WIP? Complete.

Why This Must Be Read: Eeesh, this story hits like a blade. Part of the attraction between M and Bond as a pairing (for me) is that the relationship - the BULK of their relationship - is mental. It's devotion and loyalty and use in a way that's almost medieval at its core. This very much touches on that in an emotional way. It's short and painful, but all the more perfect for it.


Fandom Category: James Bond (Craig)
Pairing: M/James Bond
Fic Title: your freudian slip is showing
Author: ladyvivien
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/551257
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17. Sex, implied violence. Spoilers for Skyfall.
Genre: Angst, sex, espionage, friendship.
WIP?: Complete.

Why This Must Be Read: Oh, this story hit me in exactly the right place. M is so bloody in-character, from her analysis and ability to run the game board, even at what appears to be a low point. And James, bless him. This story explicitly depicts exactly how I think of the possibility of this relationship. Good, bad, ugly, and hanging sword of Damocles and all. UGH, READITREADITREADIT.


Fandom Category: James Bond (Craig)
Pairing: M/James Bond
Fic Title: stripped down to the essentials
Author: ladyvivien
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/553564
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17. Crossdressing, bondage, sex.
Genre: Sex, romance, friendship.
WIP?: Complete.

Why This Must Be Read: Vivien's M is the most amazing thing ever. Ruthlessly practical, this one lets her out to play in more ways than one. And I love that as much as M knows, James can still surprise her. Also, BUCKETS OF PAINT, THIS IS FUCKING SEXY. (Also, the tag of "M is a bit of a size queen" makes me giggle hysterically and applaud.)
