    Summary

    He was gutted when Brian didn’t show up that night. A week ago now. He’d gone to bed after drinking half of the wine and eating a cold crab cake. And at midnight—Brian had shown up, and Nigel had been—maybe delighted is too strong a word. He was pleased. Maybe there was an explanation—an accident or a family emergency. When he stepped up to Brian, thinking only of how much he wanted to kiss him again, he stopped cold. There was something wrong in his eyes. Distant, chilling. His breath had caught in his throat, and Brian had gripped his arm—so tight he’d seen purple-yellow bruises there the next day. ‘Eliot, you tried to kill me. But you’ll be—useful. I think everything’s more fun when you do it with a friend. You were friends with Quentin. Best friends. Now you can be mine.

    Summary

    A story in multiple parts.

    In the beginning, Eliot is old. His life really hasn't gone as planned, not unexpectedly--we know how Eliot is. But, as it turns out, there's a way to fix things, to revise his life. And Margo knows what's best for him; she really does. Even if he doesn't know it himself.

    When he reaches Quentin, things aren't as simple as they seem. When you're two people at once in a world that seems entirely un-magical, nothing is really ever simple.

    And Quentin, as we know is never a simple human to deal with. His protective friend has a lot of things to say when she finds out he's been seduced by Eliot Waugh, talented fashion student and total disaster human that no one should trust.

    It turns out there was a reason Eliot was able to come here, and it's just like everything in his life--completely fucking tragic and complicated. But things slowly start to shift sideways, and there's hope in the strangest of places, and perhaps, magic as well.

    This is a story with: a whole bunch of feelings, explicit sex scenes because that's how I do, lots of Queliot, all the Queliot, characters slightly OC sometimes just because it's a different universe and there are no rules.

    Summary

    Quentin Coldwater led a relatively normal, quiet, plain life, as one would expect of an aspiring engineering student. That is, until the charismatic whirlwind of Eliot Waugh burst into his life like a flamboyant storm. The two were collective opposites; where Quentin was dorky and shy Eliot was witty and enigmatic, where Quentin held a very small circle of friends Eliot knew the majority of Manhattan. But despite the raw differences they shared, there was an undeniable connection pooling between the two that neither could seem to ignore.

    Mourning the death of his father, Quentin finds himself on Eliot's doorstep one starry spring night. He takes abiding comfort in the warmth of Eliot's skin, the ease of his touch, until what had been a simple kinship shared between close friends falls drastically into something entirely more complicated. As the lines between friendship and something vastly more become blurred, Quentin and Eliot find themselves stranded in some strange, middle place full of hidden feelings and passionate desires. They find a common ground within the horrific tales of their past, but will coming together make them whole or only break them further?

    There was a fine line between heaven and hell.

    Summary

    The absurdity of the whole situation is that it turns out that going crazy didn’t feel like going crazy somehow. It felt like someone kept switching the channel on his life at random intervals.

    Sometimes he’ll take a sip of water and taste champagne bubbles on his tongue, feel the urge to straighten his clothes like he hasn’t basically been wearing pajamas for a week now. Then he’ll relax back into the body cradling his own, his head resting in the lap of someone who runs fingers through his hair, twisting that one curl that refuses to bend to his will in a way that will make it stand up straight. His hand flicks up on reflex, holding onto a slender wrist to stop its movement.

    Alarmingly, one time he’s pretty sure he’s holding a gun and advancing down an alleyway in some city.

    Regardless, Midtown Mental Health Clinic is the worst possible place to start seeing impossible things and have out of body experiences.

    Alternate Season 1/Sense 8 AU that no one asked for quite frankly.

    Summary

    “I don’t give a fuck if Eliot’s in Heaven or whatever,” Margo said. “I need him. He’s mine. I’m doing a full Buffy Summers resurrection if I have to. Pull him out of his celestial orgies. It’s not his fucking time! His body is right there. He needs to – He needs to get the fuck back inside it or I’ll skin him myself.”

    It’s taken me nearly nine months, but I finally wrote a take on Season 04. Margo doesn’t leave Quentin to look after the Monster by himself: she takes them both with her to Fillory. And that one difference changes everything.

    Or: Margo decides the best way to keep Quentin sane is to top him.

    Loosely based on the 2015 Hallmark movie "Christmas Land". I say "loosely" because I took many artistic licences here.

    Summary

    Instead of magic, Quentin finds drugs.

    As a low-level seller, errand-runner, and prostitute for mob lieutenant Marina Andrieski, Quentin’s life kind of sucks, at least partly because he also snitches for his friend/police handler Julia Wicker. He stays high to deal with the stress, but when he meets mob boss Eliot Waugh, and girls in the neighborhood start to go missing, things get a little too real.

    Summary

    What comprises the beauty of all life? Why is Q so convinced he and El are great together? How exactly did Arielle get involved?

    Catching feelings for your best friend is complicated.

    In which Quentin and Eliot fumble toward ecstasy with a few minor setbacks along the way and end up raising a family together.

    This belongs to the same verse (The Peaches Verse) as "It's Never Over" and is the headcanon from which that novel was written, but they're entirely independent.
