    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

    “Bitch, we are your campus tour,” Margo announces with finality. For a second Quentin's hackles go up, but then – that's not really an insult when another omega says it, right? It seems like in – movies or whatever, omega friends call each other that all the time. Quentin wouldn't know, he's never had an omega friend, and the idea that Margo, with her perfect hair and her fancy eye makeup and her swaying stride in thigh-high boots, could even theoretically be his first kind of beggars belief. It's not like hey, you've been accepted to the magic school you never applied to levels of improbable, but it's – like, whatever's right below that, basically.

    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

    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

    I had not intended to write a sequel to 'The Grass is Dead, the Gold is Brown', but like... Here I am with Quentin's POV. I don't even have an exact imagined point where this falls, but like I'm already imagining a slight alternate universe in which Quentin and Alice are allowed to just be friends instead of having intensely uncomfortable makeout sessions, so who even knows.

    (I cannot be the only person who hates that their whole relationship is the two of them being REALLY BAD at being together while other people loudly talk about their sexual chemistry at them, like they could have had a good relationship as people if TV writers weren't weird about sex)

    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

    Eliot Waugh and Quentin Coldwater have a job that doesn't exist, it's dangerous and confidential. Eliot doesn't even know how to describe their job. Spies? Assassins? Interrogators? Hit-Squad? They do what they're told, that's the job really. Someone points and they shoot, someone gives them questions and they get answers. Eight months ago Quentin disappeared. A job went bad and Quentin was just plucked from the face of the Earth and Eliot learned that he can't live without him.

    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.
