Dec 19, James Bond, James/Q, The Office Party
Title: The Office Party
Fandom: James Bond
"You could create something?"
"For the Secret Santa? No."
"First, I don't have time. Second, when I create something, it's a personal gift or for MI6."
"And what is a Secret Santa if not an exchange of personal gifts?"
"Stop misconstruing my words. You've received enough of my tech to know how personal they are."
"I do like a nice exploding watch."
"And the coffee maker."
"Oh, the coffee maker. I'm still not sure which I love more."
"You, the coffee maker, or the watch. You do give the best presents."
"Hmph. But you see what I mean? I can't just create something."
"But apparently neither can you go to the nearest shop and just buy something."
"I still do not understand why. It's an office party, Q. It's not meant to be a good gift. You could buy some tea and coffee and put it inside a nice basket."
"...that might work."
"Check your desk drawer. Lower left."
"...James, what on Earth?"
"Now off you pop to that insipid party and let me go murder someone."
"Don't blow anything up."
"And the same to you. Just because you're bored does not mean that you get to set off the fire alarms."
"I will if you will."
"Ha. Go, James. Save the free world."
"And you save me some cake. I think Eve made her famous chocolate cake."
