    Summary

    “Happiness is not a house where you can live, but it is a house that you can build.” — asofterworld

    Its a magical holiday season in the one and only New York City. A Christmas coincidence reconnects two friends after ten years to set them on a quest: build the best, most jaw-droppingly amazing gingerbread house they can. But a lot of things have changed since they were nineteen. Will Eliot cling to his dreams of the past, or is he finally willing to find a place to call home?

    Summary

    “It's not a small detail, Wicker,” Eliot says, perhaps a little more sharply than necessary. “Whoever he thinks I am, I'm – clearly not. And he's not....”

    Damn. Eliot's throat won't quite let him vocalize the rest of the thought, and he resents that small weakness. This young man who lives with Julia now, he's not – he's not the Quentin Coldwater that Eliot carries. He shouldn't hold any power over Eliot at all.

    That's the theory, at least.

    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

    Finally, Eliot says, “Quentin.” He turns to look him in the eye, his face settling into a casual smile. “We’re friends, right? We know each other pretty well?”

    “Ye-es?” Quentin says.

    “And you’re a brave boy,” Eliot says. “Open to delving into the unknown. Looking for your next great adventure.”

    “I, uh.” That isn’t how Quentin would normally describe himself, but somehow — with Eliot’s hazel eyes shining at him, the full force of his warm, encouraging energy focused on Quentin’s face — he sits up a little straighter, and says, “Sure, I guess.”

    “Great,” Eliot says brightly, “so how would you like to pretend we’re dating for a week so we can get into the most secretive magical couples’ party of the modern era?”

    (Complete!)
