Bond 24 Gets a Proper Title  
Which is revealed HERE along with the current cast.


Am I just behind? I had no idea that Andrew Scott had been cast in the next Bond film. I did a bit of a double take because somewhere along the way, I completely bought into the fanon that Whishaw!Q is a Holmes brother and I had to remind myself that no, this isn't some large conspiracy.

So far the plot and the characters all sound very James Bond-ish. I'm pleased that the old staple characters are back in full force (Q, Moneypenny) and that Rory Kinnear continues to have a job as Tanner.

I'd heard about Andrew Scott just a few days ago, but I hadn't realized that complicates the universes somewhat. Oh well, we've already worked around Bond being mentioned directly on the show, so I'm sure we can work around a suspiciously similar looking man in the movies.

I'm just happy Q is back.

I've only ever seen Andrew Scott act in one other thing besides Sherlock so I'm interested in what his range might be. If he shares a scene with Q, he and Ben Whishaw can have a mini-"hey we did that play together!" reunion.

He was quite sympathetic in Garrow's Law and adorable in My Life in Film, so I think he has a decent range.

Basically any British production is a reunion of some kind. There are only five actors in England after all.

I thought he was quite good in Dates even though his character wasn't so wonderful.

Their CVs must look rather identical after a bit.

Both his characters that I saw were quite lovely, but I kept waiting for him to stab someone in the face. It made me a bit tense.

Casting Director: is there anyone here who wasn't in that one production of Macbeth at the Old Vic in 2004?
One actor: *raises hand*
Casting Director: Cogratulations, you have the part!

And for awhile there that one actor was just feeling left out.

I bet when our British animals play Six Degrees of Separation at the tea parties it's a complete failure.

They can probably all name one thing they were all in together.

"It's All Degrees of Togetherness!"

"Person with the fewest amounts of lines has to make the next pot of tea!"

So far two out of three Holmes brothers have appeared in films with my mental casting for one of the Holmes cousins that is appearing in my Epic Fic of OMG, How Did This Get This Big? so my brain is very pleased to have Visuals. I am all about my Visuals.

Ubitiquous daily otter quota.

"Person with the fewest amounts of lines has to make the next pot of tea!"

It's the most British game ever created.

my Epic Fic of OMG, How Did This Get This Big?

I'm looking forward to this. It sounds like a family reunion that may end up with casualties.

Man, those otters are cute. I always picture Tomor sort of draped elegantly across Maria's shoulders like a stole. That is until Dejeni holds out some random gear parts and is all, "Let's build stuff!"

It might slightly be causalities that end up with a family reunion, but you're on the right track. I thought I'd written the hard part but it turns out the part after the hard part is harder than I thought it would be. I'm actually struggling with the 'yay, we survived, everything's okay now!' part more than the 'OMG, we're all going to die!' part.

I feel like 'Let's build stuff' was totally Dejeni's pick-up line.

Is Tomor a river otter or a sea otter?

I'm actually struggling with the 'yay, we survived, everything's okay now!' part more than the 'OMG, we're all going to die!' part.

Is it because they were so sure they were going to die that now that they're going to be okay, they're all like, "Soo...now what?"

Is Tomor a river otter or a sea otter?

River otter. I feel like they look a little closer to the platypus which was Tomor's favored form before he settled.

I feel like 'Let's build stuff' was totally Dejeni's pick-up line.

I can see Tomor relating this to young Demira who's all, "Ugh, gross...so whatja build?"

Yeah, that's definitely a major part of the problem.

I think it's also because Q is narrating and is in the field and has no clue how to deal with not being able to do anything on his laptop now, and is sort of wandering aimlessly around while the clean-up happens and is like 'usually I have a cup of tea when this goes on, I don't know how to be a mundane person'. I think I'll find a problem that requires Computers to solve until I can get the rest of the cast back to where they need to be.

"If it wasn't a good thing, I don't think Mom should have married Dad. I wouldn't let Tony marry someone who didn't build good things."

'usually I have a cup of tea when this goes on, I don't know how to be a mundane person'.

Hee. I can picture him wandering round in a field, looking a little disgruntled and lost.

Awww...

"Tony, you can't date her. Look at this plane. The wings are all wrong!"

"Yeah, but check out her-"

"The. Wings. Are. All. Wrong."

Hee. I can picture him wandering round in a field, looking a little disgruntled and lost.

That's almost literally what is happening. He's even in a field, sort of.

"The. Wings. Are. All. Wrong."

Hahahaha! And then Pepper comes along:

Tony: What? No objections? She doesn't even build anything.
Mim: You're not going to find anyone more awesome than her. I'm willing to compromise.

Mim: You're not going to find anyone more awesome than her. I'm willing to compromise.

Tony: Really?

Mim: Lots of people can build stuff right. She's Pepper.

Much like canon!Sherlock Holmes, I imagine nature is Q's worst nightmare. The fresh air, the sunshine. It's hell.

^_^

Much like you can't resist daemoning everyone, I can't resist giving hypothetical children to everyone, so I've been contemplating what Tony and Pepper's kids might be like. Which turns out to be sort of highly efficient geniuses. I'm trying to stop myself before it becomes a Thing, but it makes me happy to play around with.

Q's biggest complaint in this fic is that he's having to be John and Sherlock keeps leading him from place to place and Q is like 'I can't computer when we're moving'. By the time they get to the field in the middle of nowhere in France in January, he's pretty much done with the idea of ever leaving home again.
