    Summary

    Eliot’s face instantly brightens and he says, “Oh my god, multiple orgasms, we have to—”

    At the same moment Margo says, “Right, priorities, I have to fuck someone with your enormous cock.”

    ---

    One unremarkable day Margo and Eliot wake up in each other's bodies—it all spins out of control from there.

    Summary

    Through some turn of events he barely remembers now, Eliot is in Penn Station, in a trance as he follows Quentin’s careful instructions about what ticket to buy so that they can change at Newark Station and get a bus from there. Apologetic the whole time, like he’s sorry about putting Eliot through this experience, like Eliot didn’t basically kick down his door and demand to be part of a family holiday. After he’s sure that Eliot’s got it, he is sorry again about having to dash to the bathroom before the train, which is actually quite welcome because it gives more time for Eliot to disassociate in peace about what the fuck he’s doing right now.

     

     

     

    After Encanto and Brakebills South, Margo is off to surburban Illinois to play supportive girlfriend at Thanksgiving, leaving Eliot pissy and lonely enough to agree to spend it at chez Coldwater. Platonically, of course. They're friends. This is something friends do.

    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

    The Firebrand Hotel and Casino is perhaps not the most reputable place in town, but Quentin knows it’s the right place to go when he’s looking for a particular type of entertainment.

    Summary

    “I found something,” Quentin said. “In Eliot’s room.”

    Across the table, Julia’s face shifted in the gloom. They hadn’t bothered with a warming enchantment tonight, not a single orb of magic light bobbing overhead. There in the dark with their jackets pulled on. Like they were back in undergrad, just the two of them. Like they didn’t have magic at all.

    In spite of the chill, a heat had found him. Sweeping over the apples of Quentin’s cheeks in brilliant scarlet whorls. He watched as Julia pinched her brows together, eying him from where she sat.

    “Okay,” she said, dragging the word out long. “You wanna elaborate on that, Q?”

    OR

    What comes after.

    Summary

    In a world where only Magicians present with sexual designations, Alphas Margo Hanson and Eliot Waugh have two main rules: no omegas and no undesignated first years.
    Obviously, they did have a third rule. But it didn't need reiterating, Margo and Eliot came first. They were a unit.
    They kept their habit of seducing first year Brakebills boys to presented Betas and Alphas and outside of their own dynamic, the duo don't really have friends.
    When first-year Quentin Coldwater shows up all doe-eyed, Eliot is surprised when he worms his way under his skin and Margo can barely admit that she can't get him out of her head. Quentin is mostly oblivious, as usual.

    What happens when Margo and Eliot get to know Quentin while waiting for him to present?
    The duo wasn't looking for a regular, let alone a committed third, at least as far as Margo knew.
    What happens when Quentin finally does present? Far later than most magical adepts, in the middle of the cottage sitting room?

    Summary

    Quentin has a problem, and he only has himself to blame- no, that’s not true. It’s partly Eliot’s fault for being stupidly well-endowed, and it’s mainly Penny’s fault for being an insufferable prick who loves making him miserable. And the evening had started so well.

    ---

    The one where Quentin brags about things he didn’t do, it bites him (metaphorically) in the ass, and he still gets a damn good night out of it.

    Summary

    It had been two months. Two months since the first time Eliot caught the scent of Quentin Coldwater, the sweet cedar and amber drifting downwind as Eliot lay sprawled across the top of the Brakebills sign. Eliot had stayed collected, casual, not a care in the world. He and Margo didn’t do Alphas, but everything about Quentin set Eliot on edge. Set his instincts screaming to submit. And he, Eliot Waugh, only deigned to give his submission to Bambi. So why the fuck were his damned instincts and mind not in agreement about one Quentin Coldwater?

    Summary

    He doesn’t care that Julia became the undisputed Queen of Brakebills basically overnight. He doesn’t care about her new group of friends who hate him, or her ultra-rare discipline, or her mentorship with the dean. That’s not what any of this is about.

    Friends don’t date exes. They don’t keep the ‘dating-your-ex’ secret for two straight months. They don’t wait for you to find out on your own, in the middle of the day, in the middle of campus, and humiliate yourself in front of everyone.

    But Quentin has new friends now— and they don’t fight clean.

    (Brakebills, but make it Mean Girls.)

    Summary

    Quentin starts the night playing card tricks and ends the night playing something else.

    “I love it when you get like this,” Quentin says when Eliot whines and wiggles his hips. “You want it all, and you try to take it, but you can’t because I haven’t given it to you yet. You show me everything that’s going on in your head, and I love it. I get this side of you that nobody else sees. Well, besides Margo, but that’s Margo, your Bambi. And that’s ok, I can share you with her. But so much of this is mine because you let me see it, and I’ve never been luckier in my life. Tell me, El, tell me what you want.”

    Summary

    Grad school isn't something that had even been on Stiles radar and now that it was he isn't sure what the fuck he's supposed to do about it. Also, everyone here is super nice and it's honestly awful. Quentin is almost sure that Eliot likes him for more than sticking his dick in but like, he's not going to actually do anything about it?

    Or, everyone but Derek is dead and now Stiles is a magician.

    There's also a monster that's trying to kill everyone. Again.

    Summary

    “Holy shit,” Julia says. She lets her bag drop to the floor, her eyes wide as she walks around the statue. “Q, this is amazing. I knew you had talent from the stuff you made at Columbia, but this—wow.”

    “Thanks,” Quentin says tightly. He looks over the sculpture, trying to imagine seeing it with Julia’s eyes. All he sees are the imperfections—the cracks in the clay that he needs to fill, the indentations of his fingers he needs to smooth out, or the malformed spots he needs to revisit. But when he strips all that away and imagines that someone else made it, that a stranger’s hands spent so many hours recreating the love of his life—he can admit it’s the best thing he’s ever made.

    “Who is he?” Julia asks. “I don’t think I’ve met him. Pretty sure I would remember.”

    “You remember a couple of months ago, I told you I kept dreaming about a guy?”

    “Yeah? He’s—” She looks at the sculpture, and then back to Quentin. “No way. He’s real? You met him?” Her eyes are wide, a smile starting to form on her face.

    “Not exactly,” Quentin says.

    A Queliot fanfiction, with a Pygmalion twist.

    Summary

    He’d thought that his feelings for Quentin would diminish. A longer half life than normal, but fading nonetheless. But he’d had to actively push Quentin from his mind, working at losing him piece by piece (—two rivers, a continent— he thinks), but it was work, an active extrication, dulled by alcohol and drugs and sun-soaked, over-waxed men. It had taken time and the death of brain cells, his sobriety and losing the life he’d tried to build—

    —but Eliot is sure, as soon as Quentin walks into his patisserie, that all of that resistance, the repeated acts of forgetting, was for nothing.

    **Fic is incomplete. Abandoned.**

    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.
