    Summary

    Quentin, a student at Columbia, and Eliot, a student at CUNY, meet at a coffee shop in Harlem and find themselves incredibly drawn to each other. Despite their prior traumas, romance isn't able to escape them, and an all encompassing love blossoms. But the ghosts of Eliot's past, in particular, threaten everything that they have.

    Summary

    Quentin feels like he’s in mourning, in his own widower’s blacks somewhere deep underground. It hurts with every fibre in his being, but he musters up whatever inadequate bravery he still has inside him that didn't get left with the people he loves, and looks up at the screen.

    And then Eliot adjusts his grip on the peach, staring into the fire with an identical flame in his eyes. “No,” he says instead, “fuck this.”

    Quentin drops the mug, Eliot takes a bite of the peach, and the earth shakes beneath their feet.

    or, Julia and Eliot refuse to let this be the end.

    Summary

    Eliot is staring at Quentin’s feet, the shadows of the hallway making it look like he’s at the end of a long, dark tunnel that he’d clawed his way up to get to this bedroom. “Yes, I did. After I was able to get out of bed and... walk and you were finally awake for longer than an hour, I went to see you.” He leans against the doorway again, his hands in his pockets, eyes moving from Quentin, to the window, and then back. He clears his throat - “You didn’t see me. And I- what I wanted to say- I couldn’t… and it was cowardly. I should have just talked to you, but I ran instead.”

    What I wanted to say…

     “What did you want to say?” Quentin asks softly.

    “Why didn’t you say it?” he almost whispers, his eyes gazing up at Eliot.

    Eliot looks at him and whatever he sees in Quentin’s eyes seems to break him even further, and a choked sob escapes. He runs a hand over his face and says, “You had Alice.”

    Quentin swallows.

    “I wanted you.”

    Summary

    Kady’s eyes are hard, cold, and sad. They’re darting around from Julia to anywhere else, almost as if it hurts to look at her. Julia’s heart clenches—is this where they’re at now? Unable to even make eye contact?

    “What else could you possibly have to say to me?” Kady asks, each word razor sharp, with edges to cut.

    Julia stands in front of Kady, moonlight streaming down on them as the party rages in the cottage behind them. It was almost exactly here, Julia thinks, that they had first met each other. The first time Kady had amazed her with her with magic that was as powerful and dynamic as she was, and knocked Julia completely off the garden path. Julia had just been too stupid to realize that she was never meant to follow the road most traveled.

    Julia takes one more step closer to Kady. She’s beautiful like this—wielding a ferocious devastation like a weapon. Even though it’s all directed at Julia, she takes Julia’s breath away.

    Determination and love swelling up inside her, Julia breathes out, “So much.”

    Summary

    Nothing could have prepared Eliot for the grief he would feel when he woke up. Waking up in a world such as this, a world without Quentin Coldwater, was something that no one could have readied Eliot for. At first, he couldn’t possibly believe it. Quentin, he couldn’t be dead… No, he was Quentin. He was supposed to live. Eliot had felt - numb and petrified and heartbroken. 

    As soon as he was discharged from the infirmary, he felt immediately drawn to the liquor cabinet. But Margo kept him together, smacking him upside the head and snapping that ‘Quentin wouldn’t want that’. But how the fuck could she know? Because Quentin was dead. He was dead and gone, and for some reason no one was trying to do anything about it. 

    or; Eliot wakes up, finds out that Quentin is dead, grieves a bit, before diving headfirst into finding a way to bring him back.

    Summary

    "It's not every day your best friend becomes a father," Julia murmurs, resting her head against his shoulder, and something in his heart just- breaks.

    Repair of small objects, he thinks, like a lighthouse, like a lifeline. Just a minor mending.

    "Okay. If we're really doing this, then start back at the beginning," Julia says, simple as anything. "And tell me everything."

    &&&

    “Eliot,” Fen says, finally. “She’s already home."

    "Please tell me you don't mean," Eliot says, sounding desperate, a little strung out. "Fuck, Fen, if you mean what I think you mean, I can't-"

    "She's yours," Fen whispers, and Eliot's eyes turn wild with that fresh kind of love, startled and newborn, shaky on its legs. He gazes down at the child in his arms like she's his whole universe, like he always knew he would end up here, like he's scared out of his damn mind, like he never saw it coming.

    (eliot & quentin wind up in each other's orbits anyway- in this universe, just like any other.)

    Summary

    post 4x13 canon divergent (literally throw the whole fifth season in the trash)

    would you trust in a light that you cannot see?

    It is said, when you move on, that you go to where you are needed most but sometimes where you are needed most is exactly where you left in the first place.

    While the Dark King has reduced the kingdom of Fillory to ashes, Eliot recovers from his wounds at the Mosaic Cottage, Margo is on the war path for her throne, Julia searches for her true purpose, Alice tries to fix everything she broke with a little help, Kady stands on the frontlines, and Quentin tries his very best to make it back home, but it proves to be more challenging than any warning could've predicted. Magic is unpredictable, causing disruptions and devastations across the universe and there is only one person who may be able to make it right.

    Spoiler: this story will have a happy ending.

    Summary

    His secret is out. His real name isn't Sir El von Waugh, who hails from Braekenbillzen. He's not a knight at all. He's just a peasant. One who lied and cheated his way into competing in dozens of tournaments, just to chase after his dreams that a man can change his stars. But now, there's nothing left for him to do, except stand in the city square, locked in the stockade, and await the judgement of those he deceived. Eliot Waugh is ready for whatever hardship may come. He's more than used to it. Until the worst happens, and his friends show up to his defense, knowing full well that saving him might cost them their own lives.

    Written for The Magicians Monthly Prompt Challenge, "Royalty."
