Hunting down these sorts of men, the kind who bought and sold the innocent, seemed to be a pet project for Bond, and while Q wasn't totally sure what had inspired the man's mission, he respected it.

The first time they'd followed a lead like this, it hadn't gone as hoped. Though this time around at least Q was prepared to play the part. Currently he was alone in the bar, deliberately dressed a bit younger than usual, his glasses swapped out for contacts, and his hair styled in a way that made him look younger. 

Q looked young anyway, but like this he truly looked too young to be a bloody quartermaster.

This was just reconnaissance though. They knew their target frequented the bars on this street, and Q's job tonight was to simply catch his interest. He had tanner in his ear, Eve on his phone sending texts, and he wouldn't have been surprised if Bond was listening or watching as well. Though he was sure they were all bored out of their mind right now. There was no sign of their mark, and he was yet to be approached by anyone who might be involved in the ring. ...Or anyone, for that matter.

(OTA! Q is kinda on the job right now, so expect him to play a part, even if you know him. Your pup can be mistaken for the target, an associate of the target, or just get have a nice chat. If you're in the mood your character can even mistake Q for an actual possible victim/target. The choice is yours.)

The night was clearly a bust. They all knew it. But it wasn't yet closing and there was always a chance Q might be spotted. But Bond was bored and so he came into the bar and sat down the bar a bit, watching the younger man.

He may as well have a bit of fun.

If no one else was going to try to pick Q up, he may as well. Hell, if their mark was around he might see the older man take an interest in Q and take the bait.

So Bond stared at Q with intensely blue eyes and he told the bartender to get him a drink. And he waited for Q to notice him.

Bond truly appreciated how Q put himself into these legends. If one didn't know him they'd utterly believe he was vulnerable and young. Younger than Bond, of course, but Q was hardly a child.

Bond caught the smile and raised his glass to him. It looked as though he was looking at Q while he did it but he was subtly scanning the room, looking to see who might be noticing their exchange.

"That's a shame," Bond replied quietly. "You look good tonight. People should be scrambling for you."

He sipped his drink and his eyes moved over the crowd just one more time, then he turned to look at Q more directly. He offered his hand.

"James," he said. Introductions were necessary, after all, since they'd only just met.

Bond noticed the coaster but didn't immediately look.

"That remains to be seen," he smiled. He casually touched Q's back, light and sure. Not a trace of hesitation. But it was brief and he pulled his hand back. That was when he put down his drink and reached into his pocket, a ruse which allowed him to look in the direction of their watcher as he pulled a business card from his pocket. He smiled and handed it over.

"There, now you know who I am," he said. "You're exceptionally beautiful, if you don't mind me saying," he added with a heated look in his eyes and a predator's smile.

He knew who they were after and Bond knew what they'd be looking for. Not just that Q would be desirable, but how he might react in a given situation. So when Q provoked him Bond was quick to react.

Anger flashed in his eyes and he reached up to hit the younger man, just barely stopping himself and looking around the bar to see if anyone might have seen him.

"You stay right here," he said dangerously. "I'm going to the loo to clean up."

Then he rose and moved off, muttering to Tanner to stay on Q.

Stay in London. Don't cause trouble but keep an eye out. Theoretically, that's not too hard, but this place is so choked with agents I'm amazed it doesn't empty when spy season ends.

For once, Clint wasn't on the job beyond the usual and half of the work for today was looking casual as he strolled around, his duffel bag present as usual. If he went to the gym as often as he carried his gym bag around, he'd...well Clint didn't know. It wasn't like he didn't hit the gym daily anyway. This just wasn't his gym bag.

"Jiminy," he said, nodding at Q and falling in step with him. They'd met once before but not recently but Q was hard to forget.

"Clint and Quint? Nah, can't do it. I think we should break up on principle," Clint says, shifting his posture slightly so that now he's the confident older man looking to score. "Care to share about your target?"

Nat would possibly fall off a chair laughing if she could see him now.

"Or should I just play cute?"

Clint raised his eyes and put on an abashed expression, like he was afraid to be caught. He scanned through the crowd and his eyes landed just left of a man who was watching in their direction.

"On your seven," he said. "Tacky gold chain. I think you'd call him a chav?"

"Not your type?" Clint asked. He smiled and held out an arm, pretending to be funny and gallant but slightly buffoonish. It wasn't much of a stretch for him.

"I'm out tonight on intel. If something's going on then I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be. What's your poison?" Clint nodded down where one of the establishments had raised their windows all the way up. Good access to the street.

Athos came to sit at the bar beside Q and ordered a single malt from the bartender. "Please tell me you've run this one by us."

The quartermaster was clearly on an operation, and Athos hadn't been told about it, but it hardly meant that Five didn't know about it. They had their hick-ups in communication, like every large enough organisation.

"Splendid," Athos simply returned, on his usual listless tone. He was slightly surprised to have been told anything about the operation itself, when a simple 'Yes' would have sufficed. Past experience had told him that a 'no' was often possible, or he would not have asked. "I'll leave you to it, then," he told him with a small smile, and politely raised his glass at the young man, much as any patron would have had, before moving away to have a drink in peace.

There were some things that, as an agent, you were trained to do subconsciously. Admittedly, once he'd had enough alcohol, Oliver was a lot less able to do these things. But the night was still young, and he noted the comings and goings in the bar without having to think about it.

Until, of course, he noticed the young quartermaster touching his ear.

He only had to think back to know that the older man with him had come into the bar after he and the quartermaster had exchanged a few words. So when he stopped Q from leaving, that offered Athos an array of options. Not knowing whether the bar staff was involved narrowed them down, however.

He downed the rest of his glass, paid for it, then headed over to the two. "I'm ready for you now," he told Q, and gave the older gentleman a polite smile. "I'm afraid he and I had a prior engagement."

"Have a good evening," Athos told him with another polite smile, then put a hand on Q's back and drew him outside.
