    25m Seeking Roommate

    Uhm, hi. My name is Quentin. I really need a roommate. Like ASAP. My best friend moved out, she’s going to grad school in Los Angeles. How freaking cool is that? Fuck. Sorry. I’m sure you don’t care. Oh wait. Can you even swear on Craigslist? Is that against the rules or whatever? Anyway, like I said, I desperately need a roommate. I live in a 2 bedroom apartment in Harlem. Your rent would be 900 a month and we’d split the utilities.

    Here’s my phone number if you’re interested or want a tour or whatever: (XXX) XXX - XXXX

    (pls don’t be creepy)

    Edited on May 2nd, 9:32 AM: (Apparently this needs to be said, but being creepy includes sending me dick pics at 2am. Yes, I’m calling you out Dave. You woke up my dog. Fuck you. Oh wait, to everyone else, I forgot to mention I have a pup in my original post? So uh if you’re allergic, you probably won’t wanna live with me. His name is Teddy though and he's very cute!)

    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

    Quentin eats spaghetti. Eliot gets a key. Covid-19 gets serious. Television is boring.

    Or...When the good Lord closes a portal, somewhere he opens a motel room.

     

    Quentin swallowed the lump in his throat. Partly because his anxiety of not being able to return to Brakebills, his safe place, without warning – of being stuck for god knows how long in a shitty motel in Jersey during a pandemic - had amped up his anxiety to eleven. And partly because the prospect of spending god knows how many nights in a shitty motel room with Eliot Fucking Waugh was just a little too exciting for his brain to fathom right now.

    COMPLETE!

    Summary

    In the sovereign state of Fillory, a sport arose.
    Embraced by noble and peasant fans alike,
    though only noble knights could complete.

    The sport was jousting.
    For one of these knights, an over-the-hill former champion,
    it was the end.

    But for his peasant squire Quentin, it was merely the beginning.

    The Magicians/A Knight's Tale AU.

    Summary

    New Year's Day dawns too bright and far too early. Eliot groans and rolls away, trying to escape the sunlight falling across his face through the wide-open curtains, but his pillows and quilt seem to have slipped to the floor at some point in the night, and there is no refuge to be found. Cursing, Eliot sits up, and comes to the swift conclusion that he hates everything. His head is pounding, his mouth tastes like something died in it, and...

    He has no recollection of how he got to bed last night. Jesus.

    Summary

    "He winced, then launched off into a tirade. "Okay, so like, we're soulmates, and so are you and, um, Margo, and, fuck, me and Margo, I guess, and i just, I mean, were you joking?" He glanced up, only for a moment.

    Eliot tilted his head. "Joking?"

    Quentin sighed. "That first day, about, like salves, and shit. Did you mean it?"

    Oh, Eliot was so very, very fucked. Pretty nerd boys were his kink, but brave pretty nerd boys, just tie him up and call him baby already. He smiled, the face of a man usually so confident, now so far out of his own depth he could barely see land, and just nodded. Simple, easy. Quentin smiled, and oh, oh, oh fuck. Eliot was gone. And then they were kissing again, like it was the simplest, easiest thing to do."

    Or

    Eliot, Quentin, and Margo are all soulmates. They've all taken their own paths to here, in this bed, on this night, where everything is so blissfully simple, and no one has to fight to be loved.

    Summary

    "You should have been more hospitable to strangers my dear Margo and my young Prince." As the stranger spoke she transformed into the Witch of the Darkling Woods. "For since you both laughed in my face and I see no love in your hearts except for each other there will be a curse on you and all that live in this castle." Picking up the rose, she continued, "If you both can learn to love another as you love each other and they return your love before the last petal falls the curse will be broken. If not you will both remain as you will be."

    Summary

    Quentin Coldwater isn’t exactly having a happy holiday this year. He’s lost his job, he can’t pay his rent, and his kids’ grandmother has made it perfectly clear her opinion of his raising the kids by himself. And every time something goes wrong in Quentin’s life, the same pretentious prick is always right there.

    Eliot Waugh is facing his worst nightmare- returning to his hometown of Bumfuck, Indiana (Eliot has Opinions, okay) for the first time in over a decade. He would have gladly stayed away for another decade, but needs must. And, to add insult to injury, Eliot keeps running into a cute guy, who hates him.
