On "Bonded for the Future" by Stephen Chan (6104 words) ***

Take James Bond. Okay, now make him an old man (not too old--maybe around Sean Connery's age now--still fit but retired). Now put Bond in a movie where he is retired. Put him in a movie where he begins to think about the consequences of shooting the bad guys. I mean, Dr. No has a family too--and friends. And one days those friends are going to come looking for you, and you've killed an awful lot of people, Mr. Bond. That's this story. One man, one spy, running from his self, his past, running. Trying to deal. I think I'd take this take over a regular Bond movie almost any day. Read the story here at Nthposition.
