    Summary

    After the events at Blackspire, Quentin and Eliot settle down together in Manhattan, eventually joined by most of their friends. No external crises on the horizon (or are there...?), no longer in school; they're left with a lot of money and time to explore who they are, what they want, and what they still need to work through--both as a couple and individually.

    Along the way: travel, fine dining and wining, kink, friendship, parties, hedonism, friction, self discovery, a mystery or two, and--of course--magic.

    This work continues the series For Want of a Nail, an AU serial novel where the Library doesn't succeed in siphoning off magic, and every major character escapes from Blackspire intact. (Including the Monster, but never mind that right now...)

    Chapter one picks up a few weeks after Quentin and Eliot's return to New York from New Jersey in Familiarity.

    Most recent chapter: Days of wine and cocktails. Margo is not here for it. Another old friend makes an unexpected appearance.

    Summary

    She stops, nailing Julia with an iron stare, a High King stare. “This is fucked up, you know that, right? This is fucked up, and it is actively fucking us up, because Quentin is dead and gone and the longer we spend trying to bring him back and failing, the harder it gets to actually deal with it.”

    Julia takes a breath. Counts - 1, 2, 3; lets it out. “I’m not giving up yet.”

    Summary

    The Monster and his sister are gone. Eliot and Julia are free. Unfortunately, Eliot is stuck in Brakebills Infirmary until he recovers. How is a man supposed to confess his love and seduce an adorable nerd in these conditions?

    This is a story about love, healing, and family... and maybe some booze, chess, music, shenanigans, and good fruit along the way.

    Summary

    Eliot wasn't sure what to think when Margo told him about a new sub she's taken a liking to while he was away at a photoshoot. The thing is, they had an open polycule, and Margo let subs walk in and out of her life at will. None of them got upset over the idea. The thing that really tied them all together most of the time, was an inability to see open relationships as anything but healthy if done in the correct environment.

    But, she's been talking about him quite a bit. She's said that Eliot would enjoy him as well. She's straight up said that she couldn't wait to introduce them properly, because she was absolutely certain they would get along like a house on fire.

    This doesn't sound like one of her regular flitting subs, coming and going at will. It sounded like they had a new molecule to make up their whole, and he wasn't sure how he felt about that yet. He hasn't even met the guy yet.

    Summary

    "Um, Marina," Brown-Eyes said. He sounded so polite. It was endearing. "Can you tell us who the hell we are? Give us something to go off of here? None of us are carrying ID or anything."

    Marina gave a dramatic, heaving sigh, looking up to the ceiling as if asking for strength. "Okay, this is gonna be low-key humiliating for me, because I mostly pretend I don't care enough about you chuckle-fucks to remember your names, but, I can see how the situation might get confusing if we let you all go around without knowing. So."
    ------------------------------------
    A man wakes up in a warehouse with six strangers, and no idea who he is. He takes one look at the floppy-haired, brown-eyed man next to him, and falls in love.

    Summary

    Eliot had returned to the bedroom, immaculately dressed in fine Fillorian garb, before Q had even finished getting dressed. Which meant that Q was actually shirtless, hair still rumpled from sleep, and at his most vulnerable, when Eliot gave him a strange look, his fingers fiddling with the buttons on his vest, and said -

    "Quentin. I really don't know how to say this, so I'm just going to say it." And then he'd swallowed, clenched his jaw once, and stilled the motion of his hands. He leveled Q with an even, piercing stare, and said: "We need to break up."

    [...]

    Quentin blinked, the reality of the moment slamming into him. Suddenly, he wasn't heartbroken or devastated or betrayed, just... fucking panicked. Because if Eliot was breaking up with him, something was wrong with Eliot.

    Summary

    Down in the Secrets Room with Penny40 and Quentin, something happens that changes the course of everything, with far reaching ramifications that none of them could've predicted. Because there was no way that the story of Quentin Coldwater was going to end here. Not now, not like this. Not when there were so many people who still needed him in their lives.

    Summary

    "Yeah," Quentin said, his voice strangled. "My worst nightmare. That tracks."

    There was a long pause. "Who would want to fuck with you like that?" Josh asked. "You're... Quentin."

    "You'd be surprised," Eliot said, teeth gritted. He was remembering another curse, one that attacked not Quentin's mind but his body, leaving him weak, dying, a year and a half before. He'd nearly lost him then, and he wasn't keen on repeating the experience.

    "Apparently I just have one of those curse-able faces," Quentin said, shrugging. It was said like a joke, but his eyes were still anguished.
    ----
    Quentin Coldwater is not losing his mind. Probably. Maybe. Or if he is, it's definitely magic's fault.
    Q is forced to watch his worst nightmare unfold right in front of him, and it's up to him, Eliot, and their friends to figure out why.

    Summary

    Quentin “moves on,” reunites with some people he lost, and finds eternal rest. And then is reminded that there is still more to do.

    Or, as two comments put it: the "Coldwater-Waugh rebellion" led by "Penny the Underworld revolutionary" that nobody asked for.

    Summary

    Post-finale fix-it: Fillory Deeper & Harder, the S4 canon-compliant season 5 Queliot fans deserve.

    In which Eliot's marginally less afraid of commitment, Quentin is less clueless than he used to be, & Margo is a sassy alpha bitch.

    There's sex magicky shenanigans, a giant turtle, talking pegasi, and a plot to overthrow the Dark King and reclaim Fillory, all done Queliot-style.

    Soon, all will be well in the world.

    COMPLETE.

    Note: This belongs to the same verse (The Peaches Verse) as "Sound & Color", but the two works are entirely independent.

    Summary

    Moments in Eliot and Quentin's lives, where the most drama is Quentin getting involved in shipping wars on the internet. Fourth in the Plausible Deniability series. It'll make more sense if you read the first one, but can stand alone.

    Summary

    Summary

    Let me tell you a fucking fairytale.

    Let me tell you a story in which two men- two Kings, two magicians, two best friends- fall in love, despite the obstacles between them, and it's the easiest and hardest thing in the world.

    Eliot is fucking terrified of love. Makes sense, honestly- look at what he's been left with, everyone he's watched die, everyone who's left him. Quentin's got the opposite problem. He loves too easily, gives his heart out without thinking about the consequences.

    Eliot's a coward; Quentin's too brave. They balance each other out, a bit. They break each other, a bit.

    But at the end of the day, Eliot and Quentin are best friends made for each other. They are each other's confidant, best friend, lover. They were parents and Kings and magicians and schoolmates and questers together.

    These two men, broken and self-destructive and dedicated and so heroic in their own ways, deserve a happy ending. They deserve not to die in vain, to spend months trapped in their own minds, searching for a way to each other.

    They deserve an escape. They deserve not to die.
