Power of Persuasion, by Moofoot
Title: Power of Persuasion
Author: Moofoot ramblinwanderer
Summary: If there's one thing Bond can't stand, it's not knowing all the answers, and that's the one thing that Villiers is betting on most.
Pairing: James Bond/Villiers
I don't know what's up with the amount of Villiers fic we've got this year, but I approve wholeheartedly. We don't see enough of him in the movie to get a good grip of his character, but I really, really like this interpretation.
I also like a lot Bond's characterisation: a bit uncertain, a lot immature, but growing up and learning.
“I don’t want you to take a message, I want to tell her something. Can’t you break in and tell her I’m waiting?”
“Prime Minister,” the younger man shrugs. “She told me not to let anyone in and she told me you would be the one I had to work hardest to keep out. Sorry. What did you need to tell her?”
There’s a moment of silence as James carefully eyes the man sitting at the desk, then he shakes his head. “Nevermind. Well, you could leave her a note, actually,” he leans against the edge of the desk as Villiers picks up a pen. “Tell her that double-oh-seven thinks that we should look into bringing Moneypenny back, because she was a lot easier to seduce than I am.” His lips twitch into a smirk and then he pats the desk. “I’ll be back in an hour,” he comments, ignoring the glare that gets him from the secretary. “If she’s not off the phone, I’m finding a way to hack the line.”
