    Summary

    Quentin and Eliot are ready to retire from saving the world and magical crises, but they have one last mess to fix - saving another Quentin from beyond the grave.

    But they won't be doing it alone, not when another Eliot has been working with Alice Quinn toward the same end. Not when both their timelines' magic is a mess, and the two Fillorys aren't much better.

    One last mess is more complicated than they expected.

    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

    post 4x13 canon divergent (literally throw the whole fifth season in the trash)

    would you trust in a light that you cannot see?

    It is said, when you move on, that you go to where you are needed most but sometimes where you are needed most is exactly where you left in the first place.

    While the Dark King has reduced the kingdom of Fillory to ashes, Eliot recovers from his wounds at the Mosaic Cottage, Margo is on the war path for her throne, Julia searches for her true purpose, Alice tries to fix everything she broke with a little help, Kady stands on the frontlines, and Quentin tries his very best to make it back home, but it proves to be more challenging than any warning could've predicted. Magic is unpredictable, causing disruptions and devastations across the universe and there is only one person who may be able to make it right.

    Spoiler: this story will have a happy ending.

    Summary

    “You don’t have to apologize. I just wanted you to know,” Eliot says softly, once Quentin can breathe again, once he’s stopped leaking all over everything, himself and the grass and Eliot. “You deserve to know you’re loved.”

    “I don’t think– I can’t be anyone’s boyfriend right now, Eliot,” and somehow it hurts more to say it now than it had to say it to Alice. But Eliot just smiles, sad but real, and reaches out to smooth Quentin’s hair off his face. It’s too short to hook behind his ear, but Eliot keeps petting him anyway. It feels nice. Grounding.

    The Monster is gone, but that doesn't mean everything's okay. It's not. But maybe Quentin and Eliot can learn to be.

    Summary

    The lowkey soulmate fic where Eliot Waugh is either a villain, anti-hero, or vigilante, and Quentin Coldwater is the less hapless than assumed civilian being corrupted by their dastardly charms. In his own words.

    (Somewhere in Eliot POV land, this is the most painful soulmate angst and slow burn fic ever, and probably has a title from a Richard Siken poem.)

    Summary

    "Seeing his friends, sitting there around a bonfire, crying because they love him, because they regret his death – something in Quentin balances on a knife's edge. Penny's arguments are logical, after all. They're what Quentin has always known to be true in his heart, that this is how he'd always end up. Maybe it is time to... say goodbye. To let go.

    Kady raises her hand, does the gestures of a familiar party trick spell which... okay, music gets played at memorials. That's kind of touching, really, and-

    “What the fuck. What the holy freaking fuck are they doing?” Quentin asks, flatly. It's rhetorical, mostly. He knows the spell and he knows the goddamn song, he just doesn't understand why that's apparently Kady's funeral fucking go-to. But, yeah, of course he knows the song... from every fucking time he's been at his mom's, because his mom's partner, Molly, is fucking obsessed with A-ha, and Take On Me is one of her favorite fucking songs.

    Fuck, he hates this synth-craptastic song."

    Summary

    "It's strange, but after all that fighting to get Eliot back, Quentin can't think of any possible way to start the conversation. Anything would either be too much or not enough, so he just stays where he is, knotted up on the chair, not able to take his eyes off Eliot's face."

    Summary

    "Jane startles when she sees him, here where no one knows she's hiding, nearly dropping her ritual components. The boy gives her a trembling smile, and his face is drawn and pale, with several nasty scratches down the left side, a couple of the larger ones still sluggishly bleeding, and his shoulder-length hair damp with sweat and more blood."

    Summary

    "Normally, when Quentin feels shitty and worthless, he talks to Eliot but right now Eliot is- giddy and in love and if Alice had said 'yes', all that would be fine, but right now he doesn't think he can handle having Eliot's happiness rubbed in his face."

    Summary

    "I loved him, too," she says, deadly quiet. "And as much as it— as it fucking pains me to say this, I can't be the one to save him. It has to be you. So I need you to pull yourself together, take a god damn shower, drink some coffee, and then listen to me for five seconds so that we can get him back."
