    Summary

    “Life is probabilistic,” Julia says. “Each life is rooted in its surrounding subjectivities. We don’t need to bring all of him back. We couldn’t, because there is no all of him anymore. But we can bring a piece of him — and another — and another — and if we get enough pieces, then our own consciousness will unite them. We can — fill in the gaps, like your mind does when you’re looking at a constellation.”

    “Or a mosaic,” Eliot says quietly. Thinking about what he had learned there: that the beauty of all life existed in the spaces between.

    Alice looks at him. “Yeah. Like that.”

    (Or: A story about bringing Quentin(s) back to life.)

    Summary

    “We’re not friends.”

    Julia nods, silently conceding. Eliot’s a little disappointed; he would have thought she’d argue back, what are you talking about, we’re totally friends, the three conversations we’ve ever had have like so bonded us for life, and he’s kind of spoiling for a fight.

    Then she says, “But you were his friend.”

    (Or: One year, two magicians, three late nights.)

    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.)
