More Skyfall babble - where are the conversations about this film?

I have been thinking about Skyfall since last Thursday, and have decided that I need to watch this film again, and that I need Daniel Craig to be Bond for the rest of his life. Just OMFG! I want all the Bond fics, all of them. I want to read gen, slash, het, I don’t actually care. I just want all of them.

I have, since last Thursday, read approx 400 Bond/Skyfall fics. Yes, A03 is my bitch.

But seriously, I watched Casino Royale, Skyfall and Quantum of Solace within a week of each other, and now my brain is pretty much Bond, Bond, Bond all the time. I walked out of Skyfall being quite ambivalent, and you know, I still think it isn’t the best Bond film, but by the gods, it was pretty and the themes hit all my buttons. They took them and ground them down to dust. The pacing of this film annoys the hell out of me, and I’m extremely confused by what the hell they were trying to do with Bond’s characterization about 2/3 of the way into it. As in, I was actively going, “NOOOO! NO!” The last minute of the film makes me break out in hives because it feels like taking HUGE STEPS backward in regards to the Bond franchise, BUT, you never know, the next film might not go down the path I fear. The point (yes, there is one) is that Daniel Craig is amazing as Bond, and I swear he had chemistry with EVERY SINGLE PERSON. Just, how does he manage this?! I came out of it needing/wanting every fic written to be about him. Just wow.

So, the plan. Going to re-watch this film this weekend because it is so very pretty, and Daniel Craig is just perfect for this role, and then stalk all the interesting ppl on tumblr/lj/dw to talk about this film. Because dammit, why isn’t anyone talking about this film with me?

Because lots of people want and/or see 00Q which perplexes the hell out of me. I did love the film though.

It does not surprise me that fandom has latched onto the young geek cute boy Q and Bond as the main pairing, hell, I'll read the pairing if it is written well. BUT, this was such a good film, such a mature Bond film, and all I want is to read thousands upon thousands of words of Bond post-Skyfall, the changes in him, if any, going on missions, working with a new team, and just maybe with a side of slash. Sure, insert Q, I like the guy, but is it wrong of me that all I want is Bond and his issues with a side of team!gen feels?! Gods, just think about ALL the possibilities! M's children's reaction to her death, Bond needing to find a new apartment, Moneypenny carrying two guns and two knives on her body at all times because she's got the instincts of a field agent, the new M dealing with being, well, the new M. And just, we're are all the fics exploring the awesomeness of everything else about this film?

I have read a few cute/innocent/use Q fics. I clicked the back button like there was no tomorrow. I'm actually interested in somebody writing about Bond and his views on sex, or when he had sex with a guy, the situation (was it for a job, or was it an experiment, or was it just finding somebody really hot). The other reason I can't really Bond/Q is because I see Bond as a masochist who likes to be one NOT in control when sleeping with men. Sure, he can top or bottom, but the whole virgin shtick is not his thing (which is heavily implied in a shit load of 00Q fics.). I have much feels about James Bond post this film, and all fandom want to write about is Q (there has a been a few that was really good), and all I want to read is the truly damaged Bond, going on missions, and only showing hints of vulnerability once in awhile.

I hate it when fandom and I disagree. I never gets the fics.
