    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

    Eliot Waugh has been trying for years to forget his past – and he gets his wish when a spell robs him of his memory. Quentin Coldwater, who offers to nurse him back to health, is a light in the dark… but the mysterious, beautiful man is strictly off-limits.

    The discovery of a letter the wounded magician was carrying – addressed to Quentin – only deepens the mystery of who he is and why he came to Brakebills. And, as a familiar desire burns hotter between them, it’s only a matter of time until Eliot’s memory returns…

    Summary

    His biggest regret.

    He hasn’t found it yet, and apparently it’s not something a person can just know about himself without a lot of soul searching, and Eliot has never taken the time to examine that particular metaphysical piece of his internal makeup. He’s a cliché, afraid of what he’ll find when he dives too deep. He doesn’t like to think of the part of himself that he knows to be ugly, preferring to focus on the outward bits, the things he can gussy up for public consumption.

    God, even that is far too much shrewd introspection for his tastes. This goddamn mental trap has already ruined him. Happy Place indeed. Fuck you, universe. Fuck you, Eliot Waugh.

    But he does want to live, at the end of the day. He wants to get out, he wants to oust this thing from his body, he wants to see his friends.

    Tight, hot grip of anticipation against the base of his spine. His body, which isn’t a real body, is strung taut as a live wire. When he does manage to find the door and walk through outside of the trap of his own mind, there are exactly two people he’s hoping against hope he’ll see on the other side.

    And now, hazy mists of memory notwithstanding, he’s about to see quite a lot of them both.
