    Summary

    Here he was, at Hogwarts. Quentin had dreamed of being a student here forever. He could feel the magic thrumming in the air, could see it in the lights twinkling in the ceiling.

    He felt a tickle on the back of his neck, and he looked to the table of green and silver ties. Quentin forced himself to not look to the ground, and his brown eyes locked with a set of hazel ones. Even at this distance, he could see the intensity within, a sparkle of excitement as they swept over him, head to foot and back up again. Quentin’s breath hitched and he wiped his suddenly damp palms on his robes.

    Hazel Eyes also had full dark hair, short, wavy and slightly mussed, with a stray curl or two falling over his forehead. Quentin took in his strong jaw, full lips, a tiny cleft in his chin, and a slightly loosened tie peeking out above the neck of his robe. He exuded the kind of effortless, lazy sexiness that Quentin knew he couldn’t embody in one finger on his best day.

    Hazel Eyes made no attempt to hide his appraisal of Quentin. A slow smile spread across his lips as he stared back at him, his look full of promise and intent that Quentin wasn’t sure he could handle. But I sure would love to try, Quentin thought.

    Summary

    "It's not every day your best friend becomes a father," Julia murmurs, resting her head against his shoulder, and something in his heart just- breaks.

    Repair of small objects, he thinks, like a lighthouse, like a lifeline. Just a minor mending.

    "Okay. If we're really doing this, then start back at the beginning," Julia says, simple as anything. "And tell me everything."

    &&&

    “Eliot,” Fen says, finally. “She’s already home."

    "Please tell me you don't mean," Eliot says, sounding desperate, a little strung out. "Fuck, Fen, if you mean what I think you mean, I can't-"

    "She's yours," Fen whispers, and Eliot's eyes turn wild with that fresh kind of love, startled and newborn, shaky on its legs. He gazes down at the child in his arms like she's his whole universe, like he always knew he would end up here, like he's scared out of his damn mind, like he never saw it coming.

    (eliot & quentin wind up in each other's orbits anyway- in this universe, just like any other.)

    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

    In which everyone is a bit older and a bit wiser.

    Quentin is the successful author of a bunch of romance novels. He's searching for inspiration for his next book and maybe looking to live a little vicariously through his characters once again. He's doing his best; taking his meds, seeing his therapist (who somehow tolerates him), and feeding The Catwins every night. Everything is fine until Quentin realizes that he himself could live out some of the fantasies he's only put into writing before.

    Eliot is settling down somewhat in his thirties. While he's still as fabulous as ever, working as a costume designer. He's content as can be in his own little kingdom--really. Well, that is until Quentin comes calling and well and truly throws a complete wrench into things with one simple request. Then he begins to wonder if he was ever really content at all.

    Also, theres a colony of feral cats.

    Or the one where Quentin might just end up living happily ever after and there's lots of kinky sex.

    Summary

    “I can choose a husband?” High King Eliot asked again, blinking in shock. “A husband?"

    “If you’d like,” Dint said through his teeth. “And a wife, of course." 

    “What if I—” the High King’s eyes darted between Ted and Dint, fast as a bunny sniffed. “What if I only want a husband?”

    Quentin couldn’t feel his legs.
     

    When newly arrived High King Eliot Waugh meets Fillorian Quentin of Coldwater Cove, he makes a decision with lasting consequences not only for the two of them, but for the entire kingdom.

    Summary

    Eliot Waugh was not always the spectacular second year student Quentin had the good fortune to meet on his first day at Brakebills. “Self-made” for better or worse, fits Eliot to the T, and the beginning of everything he was and became, started in Indiana.

    It started with the new girl.

    Summary

    ... no one is coming for him, if he is going to get out he’ll have to save himself. And if he does get out, he can never go back, because there is no place for him there anymore. He can’t imagine they’d even want him, and he has no interest in pity or obligation. 

    If he gets out, they’re never going to know.

    Quentin escapes the Underworld, and finds himself in Narnia. But, having seen his friends let him go and move on, he believes there's no point in trying to get back, and settles down where he is. But his past is not done with him yet, as he learns when a window opens between Narnia and New Fillory...

    Summary

    Meaningless, hopeless, dark, empty. Eliot could go on with all of the adjectives that could describe his feelings at the present moment. This wasn’t always the case, prior to him waking up from being held hostage by the monster there were different words and different meanings. Hope, willingness, BRAVERY, LOVE. All of the things that had him holding on to the possibility of being in control of his body again. The possibility that he would get the opportunity to act upon his feelings that he had been suppressing for who knows how long now. To actually be able to feel everything that he has been holding back and not letting himself feel simply because he was afraid.

    While Eliot is grieving the loss of Quentin our ragtag group of favorite magicians have found a ritual to bring back Q from the underworld. The catch of the ritual? It needs to be performed by Quentin's true love, and it hasn't worked for Alice.

    Summary

    It is stupid and dangerous, and yeah it is, but to Quentin, it is worth it. It is worth everything to get Eliot back. Worth his life, worth magic, all of it. But, it doesn't work. He doesn't even know what happened to Eliot, if the Monster is still there or if Eliot was even okay.

    You don't deserve to know.

    He tells himself.

    It's your fault, it's your fault, it's your fault.

    He knows this, they all know this. So Quentin disappears.

    Summary

    AU from episode 1.03. A voicemail is sent instead of erased, and Jane Chatwin makes a different choice. Quentin gets kicked out, and goes to find Julia. They stage a nerdy hedge revolution, Eliot keeps his promise, and they take on the Beast in a different way. Maybe magic can run on love, after all.

    Summary

    Post S5E13 (Fillory and Further)

    Finding a way to Fillory seems impossible. But the impossible is what magicians do.

    Charlton tries to find himself and what this new life on Earth means, and how he fits into it. He finally looks and feels like himself, but he doesn’t know what his place in this world is.

    The isolation of Eliot not being with the rest of his friends is crushing, but sometimes the happy ending comes after the curtain closes.

    The key to finding the new Fillory is right in front of them, if they can find a way to use it before it’s too late. A journey to get to Fillory is exactly what Charlton and Eliot need, but it will require all the help their friends can give to get there, and most of all, they’ll need each other.
