    Summary

    "I’ve been thinking about you,” Eliot continues, and Quentin’s heart nearly stops in his chest. Warning bells, sirens, flashing signs—this is not good. Not good.

    “Well—don’t. Stop,” Quentin says. The top few buttons on Eliot's shirt are undone and how is he supposed to just be an adult and say no to this?

    Eliot cracks a small smile, sliding just a little bit closer. "Don't stop?" he says.

    “Eliot—just—please go back to the bar. You don’t really want this.”

    Eliot frowns. “I’m a big boy, Professor,” he says, huffing out a breath. “I know what I want. The question is,” Eliot continues, Quentin holding his breath as Eliot leans into his space, “What do you want?”

    Quentin’s mouth goes dry as his brain spins with acceptable responses. For you to go back to Brakebills and sober up—A nice cold glass of water—A redo of the last five years—An actual responsible adult—but what comes out is, “What I want doesn’t matter.”

    Eliot’s face grows softer, the frown disappearing and his eyes searching Quentin’s face. “It does to me,” he says quietly. Cold fingers encircle Quentin's palm, and he closes his eyes as Eliot slots their fingers together and squeezes.

    Summary

    Quentin had expected to feel more remorse. Other people wouldn't understand, and he wished they would, but he was doing what he had to do. He was protecting himself and Eliot and their friends. The whole world. The monster had to be stopped, by any means necessary. Such a creature could not be allowed to live, and Quentin was doing what was necessary. That was all.

    If they had to crack a few eggs, well, the last few months had taught him that that was the name of the fucking game.

    Summary

    All Eliot feels is his chest expanding to accommodate for the sudden growth of affection for this man. This man, who accepted all of Eliot’s brokenness but couldn’t seem to do it for himself. This man, who now knew how much of a mess Eliot was - could still so easily become – but still wanted to stay, wanted him. Eliot swallows down the heavy feeling of… something threatening to spill up and out of him, and he lifts Quentin’s hand to his lips instead to stem the flow of whatever is bubbling up inside.

    or;

    Eliot takes Quentin out on their first date together.

    Summary

    “How -- how the hell -- so magic is actually real?” Quentin splutters. He can’t catch his breath.

    The curl of Eliot’s lips is sharp and beautiful, and Quentin gets the sudden, startling image of battleships sunk on the edge of that smile.

    “Oh, it’s very real.”

    --

    or: "what if they met in group therapy?"

    Eliot is poised to become the next leader of his coven of Hedge Witches, but Margo forces him go to therapy first.

    Quentin’s just trying to keep his head above water. He’s never met anyone who can do magic before.

    And Eliot doesn't mind bringing home a stray, especially a cute one.

    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

    “We need your spunk,” Margo says bluntly. “Both of yours. Specifically, in your mouth, and then passed into these sacred vessels.” She holds up two small tupperware containers.

    Eliot stares at her for a moment, and then he risks a glance at Quentin, who is also staring at Margo. As if he feels Eliot’s eyes on him, Quentin turns to him, and holds his gaze for a moment. Then they both turn back to Margo.

    “So I would need to blow Eliot and then, um, spit it into that?” Quentin says, his voice small.

    “The semen would need to be touched by the owner’s, uh, lips,” Julia pipes up. “So, um—”

    “One of us has to snowball the other. That’s kind of something you work up to, Margo,” Eliot says, feeling more amused than anything else right now. As if Quentin would ever agree to this.

    “I can do it,” Quentin says suddenly, causing all heads to turn in his direction. “Or, I guess we can do it. If you’re okay with that,” he says to Eliot, meeting his eyes.

    Inspired by the prompt: “Make the magical penises kiss”

    Summary

    Quentin shook out the tension in his hands. He didn’t understand why it wasn’t getting any easier. For days on end he’d been trying to perfect the illumination spell the rest of his fellow First Years had nailed in a matter of hours. But no matter how he tried, Quentin couldn’t seem to make anything more than a spark.

    He didn’t know what was worse: that his discipline was apparently shit at magic, or that he’d been placed in the Physical Kids’ Cottage with his ex-whatever-the-hell-they’d-been-in-undergrad because the administration didn’t know what else to do with him. He couldn’t do shit about the latter, but he figured he could at least try and get the basics of magic down before Dean Fogg realized what a grave mistake he’d made in allowing Quentin into Brakebills to begin with.

    OR

    The one where Quentin and Eliot are exes who had an intense D/s relationship in undergrad.

    Summary

    "You need to go off the garden path." - Jane Chatwin

    "The bridge between your past self and your present self is delicate. If you break it…" - Alice Quinn

    After forty timeloops, one little shift caused by Quentin's timeshare spell was enough to create a splinter timeline - Timeline 41. In Timeline 41, "Mike" is around for longer, but Eliot, Margo, and Quentin get closer in the end. So do Alice and Penny. Friendships take unexpected turns, and they left the garden path behind long ago. But all roads lead, in the end, to Fillory.

    Part of a series but can be mostly read as a standalone.

    Summary

    As far as excuses went, it was far from convincing. Quentin would know, he was the reigning king of deluding oneself. So maybe this was more the Penny Julia saw, still the worst but...“You—you’re seriously an asshole. But you’re...not really that bad, are you?”

    “Honestly I’m just tired of watching you putz around like a limp nutsack. Just fucking talk to him, man."

    He wouldn't. He probably wouldn't.

    Quentin sunk a little, knowing he really should. “Okay...um...thanks.”

    "Yeah, sure." Penny shrugged, like acknowledging that they'd almost had a real conversation was beneath him. Which, it probably was. But for a moment, Quentin could at least pretend. That Julia really hadn't sent Penny, that there was a chance in hell Eliot could actually want him back, that he'd have the nerve to ask. Hell, Penny was right. If he was just going to tear himself apart either way, what did he have to lose?

    Summary

    Квентин закрывает глаза и видит, как солнце встает над крышей их филлорийского дома. Видит цветущие персиковые деревья и улыбку их сына Тедди.
    "Кью," - мягко зовет его Элиот, и ни один из них не может объяснить, что именно он имеет в виду этим простым звуком.
    Элиот наклоняется и целует его висок, привычно приобнимая за плечи. 
    Квентин открывает глаза и видит Монстра.

    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

    11/27/20

    COMPLETE. Comments are love.

    *

    After the events at Blackspire, Quentin and Eliot settle down together in Manhattan, eventually joined by most of their friends. No external crises on the horizon (or are there...?), no longer in school; they're left with a lot of money and time to explore who they are, what they want, and what they still need to work through--both as a couple and individually.

    Along the way: travel, fine dining and wining, kink, friendship, parties, hedonism, friction, self discovery, a mystery or two, and--of course--magic.

    This work continues the series For Want of a Nail, an AU serial novel where the Library doesn't succeed in siphoning off magic, and every major character escapes from Blackspire intact. (Including the Monster, but never mind that right now...)

    Chapter one picks up a few weeks after Quentin and Eliot's return to New York from New Jersey in Familiarity.

    Summary

    Julia Wicker has regained her shade, so she’s complete again. Or, at least, she should be.

    Wickoff, fucking obviously, not that anybody else is invested in this ship in late 2020. This is extremely Julia-centric, because I love her deeply and because her plotline with OLU was my favorite part. Multi-chap and notably canon divergent, but not unrecognizably so.
