    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

    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

    It’s hard to be The Bard! Quentin Coldwater, playwright for The Whitespire Theater, is supposed to write a fantastic new love story in the span of three weeks. But breaking up with his muse Alice Quinn, and constant badgering from his boss Josh Hoberman, aren’t doing anything to help his crippling writer’s block. That is, until a new, unknown actor appears just in time during auditions, capturing his imagination and his heart. Eliot Waugh has turned to acting for one last adventure before he’s forced to marry Lady Fen of Wessex. Together, Quentin and Eliot risk everything for the chance to show the world that a simple play truly can depict “the beauty of all life.”

    Based on Shakespeare in Love (1999) for the Magicians Happily Ever After collection.

    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

    “ Margo.” Alice replies.

    This confuses both Alice and Quentin. Quentin couldn’t understand why Alice would need to see Margo at this moment or at all really, and Alice couldn’t understand why she longed for Margo’s presence.

    Maybe it’s Margo’s resilience, or how she never holds back, or maybe its the crush Alice buried deep within herself resurfacing full force. Who knows.”

    Summary

    “Shut your stupid mouth, Q, of course you’re not fine, none of us are fine,” Margo spits, tugging at his hair to make him look up, look at her big eyes filled with worry and a hint of fear. He looks behind her and sees Eliot, standing back, keeping his distance. Margo moves her head as if to shield Eliot from view and Quentin frowns at her.

    Or: 12k of healing, of a slow recovery, of finding your way forward in the after.

    Summary

    Even his dreams don't give him a break. He dreams that they weren't able to save Eliot, that the Monster got bored and killed Eliot's body, that Margo's axes wounded Eliot so fatally that he bled out, that the Mirror Realm's spell fiasco was his end. That last one makes his chest ache, as he's later mechanically eating a sandwich, and he feels as if something is - wrong.

    You weren't supposed to survive it, a voice whispers in the back of his head. That spell was meant to be your end.

    He ends up later throwing up the sandwich, his stomach unable to handle it and his mind swirling with images of sparks and flame.

    He's just so tired.

    or; Quentin survives the Seam incident, and gets the help that he needs

    Summary

    Margo was a skilled magician. She liked to pretend that her and Eliot’s lavish lifestyles were earned through sheer genius. Less time studying meant more time practicing hedonistic debauchery. But for all her skill she still couldn’t have predicted just how involved she would be in Quentin fucking up his relationship – emphasis on the fucking.

    A Season 1 AU where tragedy never strikes, but people still manage to make the same mistakes. Luckily, Margo is determined to make things right. Too bad she can't see what's right in front of her.

    Summary

    Nothing could have prepared Eliot for the grief he would feel when he woke up. Waking up in a world such as this, a world without Quentin Coldwater, was something that no one could have readied Eliot for. At first, he couldn’t possibly believe it. Quentin, he couldn’t be dead… No, he was Quentin. He was supposed to live. Eliot had felt - numb and petrified and heartbroken. 

    As soon as he was discharged from the infirmary, he felt immediately drawn to the liquor cabinet. But Margo kept him together, smacking him upside the head and snapping that ‘Quentin wouldn’t want that’. But how the fuck could she know? Because Quentin was dead. He was dead and gone, and for some reason no one was trying to do anything about it. 

    or; Eliot wakes up, finds out that Quentin is dead, grieves a bit, before diving headfirst into finding a way to bring him back.

    Summary

    Eliot and Quentin are pining fiercely for each other. They play spin the bottle. Then they're friends with benefits? They don't have a fucking clue. They're both total disasters. Everyone will get a big happily ever after.

    ~
    Tall guys. It was a thing.

    He didn’t know how much of a thing it was until he’d wandered through the community garden in Manhattan, stumbling out of the cold, leafless bushes and into the bright, warm summer day at Brakebills. He’d felt a thrill when Eliot stepped up to him, cigarette in hand, standing just a little too close and looking him up and down like he was deciding whether not to approve of Quentin’s existence. Eliot’s cool disinterest and his frank assessment of Quentin that very first day… well, that was also a thing. He’d gotten a bit more mentally adventurous in the years since he’d had his secret crush on Colin, and that night, Quentin had an elaborate fantasy involving Eliot deciding whether or not he got to stay at Brakebills by putting him through an increasingly complex series of sexual trials, culminating in Eliot fucking him against the brick wall where he’d been lying out like a bored supermodel the first time Quentin had seen him.

    Summary

    Quentin would want them to all get together and cry and make each other feel better. Quentin would want the people he loved to take care of each other. Quentin would want them to all decide that his life had meaning because of how much he’d changed them. Quentin would want them to heal and move on.

    Margo had never wanted to strangle anyone so much in her life as she did Quentin right then.

    Summary

    Quentin had got so used to wanting to die, he supposed he didn't realize how bad it had gotten until it was almost too late.

    OR

    Author refuses to watch season 5 until she knows Quentin comes back, and until then, will fix the end of season 4.

    OR

    The whole problem could've been avoided if they hadn't spent so much time staring at the Seam instead of throwing the bottles into it.

Told over the course of three months, our boys navigate distance, Ted's Illness, Eliot's thesis, and their own demons as they learn what it means to truly be together and apart.

    Summary

    “He told me once,” Margo said, her voice low and quiet, just above a whisper, “that no matter what—no matter the pain he was numb to, the heartache he learned to suppress—that he would give his soul for us, for you.”

     

    // Or: When Eliot finally learns how bad he and the others fucked up, and how fixing it, is impossible.
