    Summary

    Quentin, a student at Columbia, and Eliot, a student at CUNY, meet at a coffee shop in Harlem and find themselves incredibly drawn to each other. Despite their prior traumas, romance isn't able to escape them, and an all encompassing love blossoms. But the ghosts of Eliot's past, in particular, threaten everything that they have.

    Summary

    “I think I’ve waited long enough to meet Eliot,” his dad says, and Quentin can already feel himself caving. He’s run out of excuses, and he can sense it, his dad’s going to bring out the big guns— “and we don’t know how long until the cancer comes back, and I just want—”

    There it is. Ted knocks through the last barrier he has in his defenses, and Quentin folds, just like that cheap-ass card table Eliot was using as a bar until he slammed one too many shot glasses down on it.

    “Okay!” Fuck. Goddammit shit fuck fuck fuck. “Okay. I’ll bring him. For a visit.”

    “Really? Fantastic. For your birthday next weekend? I can cook. Or order in. Your favorite. Whatever you want! You can spend the weekend?”

    “Sure!” Why the fuck not? I’d love to spend my birthday fake-dating the man I’m in love with, who is most definitely not in love with me, so my dad can die peacefully, assured his son won’t spend the rest of his life with only his Fillory books, Star Wars action figures, and anatomically correct blow-up dolls for company.

    Post S3 AU. No monster. The only disasters here are bisexual ones. Post-mosaic fake-dating shenanigans.

    Summary

    Chapter 1 (5.5k: the set-up & the wedding night) is fully written and can stand alone.

    Chapter 2 (1.5k) is the notficced rest of the plot.

    “Q! Over here, come on, son, quickly!” His father was gesturing, the same exasperation in his voice as every other time Q failed to respond to him, lost in magic or in daydreams.

    He was standing with High King Eliot and the one called Margo, who seemed to be his confidante. They were both frowning deeply.

    His father’s face remained blank as Q approached the three of them slowly, focusing to try and shake the warm fog from his body and mind.

    “See? Twins!” his father said, clapping Q on the shoulder a little too hard, making him fight not to stumble. Q blinked up at him, confused.

    When he turned his gaze back to the magicians, the High King was staring at him. His father was talking, but the words did not make sense.

    “A matched set, Your Majesty,” he said. “If you had told me earlier, we would have more time to organize. You might think we don’t have much here, but we are not savages.”

    An AU where Q is Fen's twin, and he gets arranged-married to Eliot instead of her.

    Summary

    Like all great stories, this one begins with a man who has something to prove. And by "great stories" I mean "bad ideas." And by "a man" I mean "a moody gay named Eliot." And by "has something to prove" I mean "needs to prove to his best friend that he's not depressed and mentally unstable."
    Anyway, Eliot impulsively adopts a cat and it is unsurprisingly a terrible idea.

    Summary

    Harry's great aunt Dorea and uncle Charlus have been keeping an eye on him for years. They finally decide to take Harry to Brakebills where Dorea will be teaching.

    While there Harry throws himself into his studies but not enough to not notice the hot guy Eliot and everything that's going on around them. He figures this place will be even better than Hogwarts was the one year he'd attended.

    Things aren't' what we were told and believe. What is the truth about the timelines?

    Harry is changing Timeline 40 but is it for the better or worse.

    (Everyone is in the same year. The reasoning I'm going with is basically Eliot and Margo's birthdays pushed them back a year. You'll understand better when you read the story.)

    Summary

    “I found something,” Quentin said. “In Eliot’s room.”

    Across the table, Julia’s face shifted in the gloom. They hadn’t bothered with a warming enchantment tonight, not a single orb of magic light bobbing overhead. There in the dark with their jackets pulled on. Like they were back in undergrad, just the two of them. Like they didn’t have magic at all.

    In spite of the chill, a heat had found him. Sweeping over the apples of Quentin’s cheeks in brilliant scarlet whorls. He watched as Julia pinched her brows together, eying him from where she sat.

    “Okay,” she said, dragging the word out long. “You wanna elaborate on that, Q?”

    OR

    What comes after.

    Summary

    It’s one of those long stretches of hot days after rainy season, when everything’s sweaty and so, so bright. Quentin had come back to life, in the sunshine, ice cream and barbecues and outdoors. Today, as Eliot smooths gel through his curls, he looks up into the mirror to see Quentin sliding off the bed to lie flat on his back on the floor behind him.

    In which it is summer, and Q is still sad. In which it is summer, and Q is still loved.

    Summary

    He’d thought that his feelings for Quentin would diminish. A longer half life than normal, but fading nonetheless. But he’d had to actively push Quentin from his mind, working at losing him piece by piece (—two rivers, a continent— he thinks), but it was work, an active extrication, dulled by alcohol and drugs and sun-soaked, over-waxed men. It had taken time and the death of brain cells, his sobriety and losing the life he’d tried to build—

    —but Eliot is sure, as soon as Quentin walks into his patisserie, that all of that resistance, the repeated acts of forgetting, was for nothing. Eliot thinks, gripping the edge of the counter as he stares— God, he’s staring— that Quentin in his twenties was surely beautiful, but the man in front of him is something else entirely. Softer, somehow, deep laugh lines at the corners of his eyes, his hair short now— and somehow, that’s worse than the loose bun he used to wear because it’s wholly different, betraying all the time lost between them. His dimples crease as he catches Eliot’s gaze, and he pushes his glasses up the slope of his nose. He’s—God, it’s so corny, and Eliot is so fucked—Q is artistry, perfect form, Eliot’s long-buried wanting made manifest.

    Summary

    Eliot and Charlton have loved each other in many lifetimes. They compare notes on it.

    --

    “Kind of crazy,” Eliot murmured, exhaling a long drag. 

    Charlton raised an eyebrow, eyes half lidded, “Mnh?” 

    It made Eliot laugh softly, shaking his head and smoking some more, “All the shit that happened. Me singing--not that that’s out of character, I actually was slated to be a performing arts major.” He waved his hand noncommittally and Charlton had half a mind to tell him he knew already that Eliot was a performer at heart. 

    “You being a king…” Charlton looked at Eliot with awe.
