    Summary

    They hadn’t been in the castle a day when it was announced that Eliot was expected to marry. Some superstition about an ancient curse on the throne that only marriage could break. Eliot’s High Council seemed entirely unwilling to chance it, even if it definitely sounded like bullshit. It could be anyone of his choosing, but no High King in the history of Fillory had reigned unmarried for long.

    Summary

    Quentin shook out the tension in his hands. He didn’t understand why it wasn’t getting any easier. For days on end he’d been trying to perfect the illumination spell the rest of his fellow First Years had nailed in a matter of hours. But no matter how he tried, Quentin couldn’t seem to make anything more than a spark.

    He didn’t know what was worse: that his discipline was apparently shit at magic, or that he’d been placed in the Physical Kids’ Cottage with his ex-whatever-the-hell-they’d-been-in-undergrad because the administration didn’t know what else to do with him. He couldn’t do shit about the latter, but he figured he could at least try and get the basics of magic down before Dean Fogg realized what a grave mistake he’d made in allowing Quentin into Brakebills to begin with.

    OR

    The one where Quentin and Eliot are exes who had an intense D/s relationship in undergrad.

    Summary

    "It's embarrassing."

    "Well now you have to tell me," Eliot said with a grin, refolding his pants.

    Quentin was too tired to resist all that hard, so he just heaved a sigh. "So, I memorized all this like, famous erotic poetry, thinking I was gonna recite it at girls and seduce them."

    Summary

    “It’s a—um—bonding enchantment?” Quentin twitches in his bed, all anxious energy, and wiggles closer to Eliot. “So that’s like—the curse is attached to our bodies and—um—”

    “And your magic,” she says.

    Margo sits down and takes Eliot’s free hand. “You’ll be fine. You just gotta share a bed with Coldwater without losing your mind until we figure out how to fix this.”

    “That’ll be—” Eliot swallows hard, his throat clicking. “That’ll be fine. Definitely not a big deal.”

    “El, we can’t do that—I mean, you can’t do that. That’s—that’s—” Quentin says, a tinge of desperation to his voice that makes Eliot’s chest grow tight.

    “Q, I’m not going to—it’ll be just fine. We can find lots of workarounds.” So you can keep jerking off about Alice, he thinks. But he doesn’t say. Doesn’t want to say it. “We’re friends. It won’t be weird.”

    Summary

    A little salve, a little spell, a gentle kiss on a skinned knee. Good as new, like it never happened. And Quentin was always the kind one, the one you'd go to for comfort, to be petted and soothed and mended after a fall. Eliot remembers that much.

    Queliot Week 2020: "Not everything can be mended."
