    Summary

    i’ve been told that writing a letter is supposed to be cathartic. something about saying the things i never said and, in some cases, still can’t say out loud. the unspoken and the unspeakable. that’s what everyone’s been saying. i know that what they really mean is that it’s supposed to help me move on, though.

    i don’t think i want to. not yet.

    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 and Quentin have been secretly dating for a while, one by one their friends find out. Not that they realize that right away.

    ((8 times the group catches El and Q being domestic plus 1 time that Hades does them a favor.

    I can’t tell you exactly where it takes place like it’s the original timeline but also changed because I imagined them getting together A LOT sooner in this.))

    Summary

    “Listen to me Eliot, let me make this perfectly fucking clear,” Margo enunciated every word, looking between his eyes solemnly as she cradled his face in her hands, “We’re getting that boy back, do you hear me? I don’t give a shit which universal laws we break, I don’t care what gods we kill, I don’t care what price we pay. We are getting Quentin Coldwater the fuck back.”

    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

    Sometimes old stories aren't just told, they're lived.

    So when Eliot gets a chance to succeed where Orpheus failed and lead Quentin out from the Underworld, he takes it.

    And when Penny and Kady are offered the Lord and Ladyship of the Underworld, they accept.

    But knowing the story doesn't make living it any easier.

    Summary

    Hades gestured for Julia to take a seat. “My wife wanted you to have a choice, a choice that was taken from you. I'm here to give it back.”

    Goddess Julia works out a deal to bring Quentin back to life, but there's a catch. He only has 3 days to find and kiss his true love, or he'll return to the Underworld. And he has to do it all without his voice.

    Summary

    Thanatos cut him off, “Hades is the God of the Underworld, but I am the God of Death and you are not supposed to be here yet Quentin Coldwater.”

    “I’m sorry what?” He was confused. He had died, hadn’t he? He had stopped running and let the magic take him.

    “Yes, you did stop, but you were only supposed to be in a coma. You were not supposed to die yet. It seems that Hades decided to ignore what was meant to be.” Thanatos replied apparently reading Quentin’s mind as well.

    “Okay?” He had apparently gotten caught up in the middle of a fight between Gods.

    “Your original body is gone, or else I would put you back in that, so I found you another one.”

    “Wait what’s happening?” He was so confused.

    Summary

    Something in Eliot broke because he had wanted to remain strong. If he let himself cry over it, it would be real and that meant he was really dead and he wasn't going to be there for the rest of Eliot's life.

    Summary

    Todd just stared at him, “Wow okay so well here’s the thing Quentin kind of died and I need your help to save him.”

    James’ mouth fell open, “Are you fucking with me Todd? My best friend is dead so how in the hell do you think can I save him??”

    Summary

    On the tablet Eliot saw a webpage from the New York Daily News, and at the top was a picture of an old woman, holding her own death certificate and smiling. The headline said, "DEAD RISE AGAIN IN QUEENS, BROOKLYN."

    Margo said, "You bitches better sober up, because this is a massive goddamn problem, and it just might get us our friend back."

    Summary

    Margo steps up to the fire with his crown in her hands, she stands still for a minute, holding it tight to her chest as she reminisces, and then leans over to put it in the fire.

    Right as she leans over to drop it into the fire, she looks up and around at all of them, and her eyes fall on him and Penny.

     

    or, how it should've happened!
