    Summary

    He doesn't want to think the words "monster cock" but frankly, it's too fucking late, because they're now living rent-free in his brain in twenty-foot high neon letters.

    How does that even work? Do the women he sleeps with come out changed? Does he have the goddamn ER on alert every time he goes on a date?

    ***

    Alex isn't into dick, except maybe he is, and maybe this one specifically.

    Summary

    The interior of the club is just as... as swanky as the exterior had suggested, and Quentin feels distinctly like a fish out of water as he skirts the edge of the dance floor. He still isn't sure how he got in, why he caught the attention of one of the co-owners, but he does know that that kind of woman is not the kind to be disobeyed. And he does want a drink, if he's going to be sitting here trying to figure out what's so appealing about...

    "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but chains and whips excite me," Rihanna sings over the speakers, and Quentin can't help an amused snort, both at the timing and the song choice.


    Quentin Coldwater ventures out looking for a night on the town, distracting himself from his recent break-up. He gets so much more than he bargained for - but hell, he's not complaining.

    Summary

    The first morning after a heat is always a strange one. It takes time to reach full wakefulness, sleep still heavy like a thick, syrupy blanket. Muscles feel pleasantly sore, and every sense is heightened: the sheets feel impossibly soft; the sounds of the house coming alive are comforting in their familiarity; the scent of a satisfied omega is heady and wonderful. Eliot Waugh opens his eyes with a smile already playing about his lips, and stretches languidly, disturbing the arm that's resting over his waist. The wind is still howling outside of the windows, Brakebills' scheduled White Christmas still well underway, but it's warm in his bedroom, in his nest. It always is, but especially after a heat. Warm, and cosy, and safe. Eliot feels so good.


    Eliot has a plan for his life, and he's going to make it happen, come hell or high water. First, he just needs to get Quentin on board...

    Then he needs to figure out how to handle the timeline getting moved up.

    Summary

    Quentin wants to sink through the floor. He can feel his neck and his cheeks flare hot, and his eyes skitter away from Eliot’s perceptive gaze. But then Eliot is turning back to the door, and he’s opening it and basically manhandling him through it, which — okay. Apparently is a thing for him as well.

    He has A Thing for tall guys named Eliot who smirks at him and looks at him and manhandles him through doors.

    Okay.

    Okay, he can deal with this.

    He still doesn’t know what he’s doing here, but he can deal with this.

    Because it turns out that tall guys named Eliot are the least of his problems.

    or;

    The one in which Magicians find their Soulmates through different means, and nobody seems to have informed Quentin of this.
