We received some fab recs over March for the theme “under 200 kudos/notes”. You can view the rec list here.
This month we’re looking for meta recs! We want to see those metas that people have written about our favourite characters, reasons behind things we have seen or read but haven’t necessarily been explained. We want those metas that go into detail about the lighting or scenery or about certain turns of phrase!

Submit your meta recs to our fic rec form here and they will be released with the next monthly post!

MI6 Café Book + Film Club

Our next book for book club will be For Your Eyes Only, which is a short story collection! The book clubs will be held on 16th (for From a View to a Kill, For Your Eyes Only and Quantum of Solace) and 30th (for Risico and The Hildebrand Rarity) of April!

This Month’s questions

Don’t forget that these questions are also released on tumblr as our Weekly Questions! That means twice the discussion! Feel free to use these questions as conversation starters and get to know your fellow Bond Fans!

1. People who ship non-canon ships, how do you make sure not to infringe on canon love interests when you're writing fics/working on headcanons?"

2. What game does each member of the MI6 Squad play on their phone? (Is Bond an old-school ‘snake’ player? Does Q play Scrabble?)

3. What is one scene from the franchise that you would say is the most pivotal to the 00Q relationship?

4. What does Q get up to that we don’t really get to see in the movies? What’s his biggest non-Bond-related accomplishment?
