"It's a beautiful day."

"Yes, it is. Is anyone sitting here?"

"No, please have a seat."

"Thank you."

Tony sat on the bench beside Control. Their secret code had worked perfectly to identify themselves to each other. One could never be too careful working for British Intelligence.

"Well, Tony, I suppose you're wondering why I asked you to meet me in the park like this." The sun's highlighting his hair beautifully, thought Control.

"I admit to some curiosity about that, Control. Could it be that Mrs. Control wants you to get more fresh air?"

Control sighed inwardly. He hadn't seen Mrs. Control in over a week. The day after his Tony dream, she announced that she was going to spend some time with her mother; she hadn't said how long she'd be away. He hadn't told anyone.

"Not exactly, Tony. I wanted to speak with you away from the office. We've a mission to plan."

"A mission? My, that's exciting, Control. May I ask the nature of this mission?"

"Yes, Tony, you may. Because, you see, I will need your help."

Tony beamed. He so wanted to be of help to Control. "Thank you, Control. You know you can count on me. What's the nature of this mission?"

"A very important person from one of your related satellites will be visiting London in two weeks. Philip and his F division have provided surveillance reports and photographs pointing to enemy agents plotting to kidnap or even hurt this person."

"Oh, dear!" Tony interjected. "That's not at all pleasant, is it, Control?"

"No, Tony, it isn't. In fact, it's quite vexing. But Philip's information is always quite reliable so we must treat this as a credible threat and have a counter-plan ready."

"I agree with you, Control. Better safe than sorry, I always say. What do you have in mind?"

"There's a formal dinner planned for the first night of the visit and that's when the plan is set to 'go down.' We will place our people as guests and staff to keep an eye on everything and capture the enemy agents."

"Excellent idea, Control." Tony loved undercover operations, especially when Control would be there, too. He glanced at his watch. "Control, I just realized—it's after eleven and you've not had your coffee. But not to worry." He pulled a thermos from under his trench coat. "I've got just the thing."

Control loved that Tony would go to such lengths for him. He was a very good friend, indeed. "Thank you ever so much, Tony. You're a very good agent, indeed."

Tony, as always, blushed at Control's kind words. If only Control would think of him as more than an agent.

its almost 10 to 8 here, and i'm reading this, waiting for class to start. What a way to start the day! Tony and Control outside the office...the THERMOS *dies* how very very Tony. Last line made me wanna hug Tony. If only, if only
Mar. 2nd, 2007 02:47 pm (UTC)
Heh. I loved the idea of Tony hiding a Thermos in his trench coat, just waiting for the minutes to pass until he could, um, whip it out and give Control his morning cup. :)

So much love for them and their agenty ways! <3

They certainly are smooth, aren't they? In a very dorkalicious kind of way. ;)
Mar. 2nd, 2007 02:34 pm (UTC)
Hee! Oh, their "secret" code, that cracked me up. And Tony, so eager to please, even bringing along that thermos. He's such a sweet little puppy. *g* I love that you're going with the formal dinner thing! Thanks much for mentioning me in your notes.
Mar. 2nd, 2007 02:49 pm (UTC)
I probably shouldn't admit this, but I made myself laugh with the secret code. :) You know Tony wants to please Control...in all kinds of ways! *eg*

I can't wait to see Control in a tux, can you?
Mar. 2nd, 2007 02:47 pm (UTC)
Yay! LOVE! This is a great series, hon, and I can't wait for Tony and Control to get together over a formal dinner. Knowing Tony, probably even his tux wont fit. :)

Hee! Secret code.

Can't wait to see the next bit, hon!
Mar. 2nd, 2007 02:52 pm (UTC)
Yay! Thanks for the love! I think there will have to be a lot of Tony pining for handsome-in-his-tux Control at the banquet. Tony does need his Control!
Mar. 2nd, 2007 08:38 pm (UTC)
Oooh the hightlight of my day! :D The Thermos flask is such a Tony thing to do - he must give Control his coffee and Control must have it! Can't wait to read about Control in his evening suit! *dreams*
Mar. 2nd, 2007 11:56 pm (UTC)
Let's face it...Tony wants to make sure his man is taken care of! I think Control in his tux will be ever so handsome. ;)
Mar. 3rd, 2007 12:00 am (UTC)
Tony takes very good care of his man! I can just imagine what it'll be like when they're together! ;-) Indeed Control will be ever so handsome... *sigh* Quite funny actually, to get your reply right now - I've just found Mr Wooster's Wish on fanfiction.net :D

I can just imagine what it'll be like when they're together!
Good, you'll have to give me some hints. I have no idea yet where I'm going to take them. ;)

Haha! So you found me there, eh? I figured I'd just cross post all my J/W fic for now. But there's nothing there that isn't here...LJ gets first dibs. LOL!
Mar. 3rd, 2007 12:14 am (UTC)
Hints... oh no! I'm rubbish at that sort of thing :-(

Hehe found you! I clicked on the story and began reading it and thought "Hang on, I've read this!" then I thought to look at the author's name... Everything I've ever written is there, but I'd never thought to look for Jooster there before!
Mar. 3rd, 2007 12:53 am (UTC)
LucyLou's stuff if there too, as is some other fic. It's all listed in the Indeed Sir archive that just went live. :) http://frenchowlssayqui.org/indeedsir/index.php
Mar. 3rd, 2007 12:56 am (UTC)
I've read all of LucyLou's stuff too! Many times! Ooh have indeedsir got an archive?! Cool, I haven't looked at that community for ages! Fun fun! :-):-):-)
Mar. 3rd, 2007 01:11 am (UTC)
Yep, it's a links archive of fic and artwork and vids. It's very cool...searchable by author, title, character, etc. I think you'll enjoy it! :)
Mar. 3rd, 2007 01:14 am (UTC)
Oh absolutely! It's bound to keep me amused for a good while (even though it's the middle of the night and should be asleep!) Thanks for the link!x xx
Mar. 3rd, 2007 01:23 am (UTC)
You are most welcome, m'dear. Enjoy! :)
Mar. 3rd, 2007 02:15 am (UTC)
Eee, cute! And, oh my, it's getting plotty! I can't wait to see them in action as, you know, actual spies. :D Should be hilarious. And, of course, can't wait to see them in action, in, er, other ways, as well. :P
Mar. 3rd, 2007 03:56 am (UTC)
Aw, thanks! :D

Hee! Maybe our boys will be too busy mooning over each other to get any real spy work done. :)
Mar. 3rd, 2007 05:05 am (UTC)
Yeah, this made my day. What so funny I had a strange dream about them. They was on a mission and two men was about to kill them so Tony grabs control and I remember the gave this look to each other like nothing could go wrong. They jump out of the plane without an parachute. So, as they about to hit the ground. Tony pulls out this gaget and a long rope comes from it and connects with a tree. They swings towards the tree and the next thing I know they in the wilderness and control tell him something and He kisses Him. And I woke up.

Keep writing these fics because I am really enjoying them.
Mar. 3rd, 2007 11:53 am (UTC)
Aw, that's such a cute dream! :) It's fun to picture them out on actual spy capers. Hee!

I'm so happy you're enjoying. Thanks for the encouragement. :D
