    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.

    Summary

    Quentin stares at the flier. “Uh, James. This place is called Cocktales. It’s a gay club—”

    “Well, yeah,” James says, not without a note of defensiveness in his voice. Which—James came out like—last week. And only to Quentin, as far as Quentin knows. And Quentin had sort of—led him there. Like, he’d had to tell James he wasn’t straight while they were in the shower together.

    “You want to go to a gay club and enter a wet t-shirt contest—”

    “You can enter it, too. I could loan you a t-shirt. I mean.” James pauses. “Maybe you could wear one of Julia’s shirts. She’s got like—some oversized shirts, right?”

    “What the fuck? Why am I wearing Julia’s shirt in this scenario? Why am I not wearing my very own fucking t-shirt that I have on right now?”

    “Your t-shirt is black. All of your t-shirts are black. Or very, very dark gray.”

    Summary

    “Be my guest,” Quentin says. He wants to press his face into his pillow, but he’s a grown-ass man, and he can face a—a—lover. A lover? A fuck buddy. Best friend with deepthroating benefits. (And of course James can take Quentin’s dick all the way to the back of his throat with ease. He’s just average, not big. Like James.)

    ~~***~~

    Eliot clears his throat. 

    “What?”

    “Nothing,” Eliot says. He’s really not going to sink to this particular low. It would be impossible to explain that he’s not insecure; he’s just curious. 

    “It’s not nothing,” Quentin snarks, a cheeky little grin appearing on his face. 

    Eliot kisses his dimple. “It definitely is.”

    “Look,” Quentin says, starting to laugh. “You’re not the only person in the world with a big dick—”

    “That’s not what I was going to—”

    “You didn’t invent big dicks, Eliot.” 

    “Oh my God. I wasn’t going to—”

    “You have nothing to worry about. James isn’t in Fillory. So you’ve got the biggest cock of anyone in Fillory that I’ve fucked.”

    Eliot scoffs. “I wasn’t going to ask about your sports-econ boyfriend’s dick.”

    ~~
    Don't let the summary fool you. This is tender AF.

    Summary

    But his hindbrain takes over when he watches James chug white Gatorade, drops of it dribbling over his sharp jawline and down over his pecs. Quentin has imagined more than once being that drop of Gatorade. Or just—licking it off of him, sweet mixed with salty sweat, his tongue exploring the deep V that leads to the line of his cock.

    Quentin guesses this is why people use the word ‘thirsty’ to describe the visceral sensation of lust. Because he actually wants to drink James. Every time he looks at James doing bro stuff—like just hanging on his fucking pull up bar, lifting weights in the hallway, folding his dumb basketball shorts—Quentin is parched.

    *

    It’s like you were living in a gay Budweiser commercial," Eliot says. "I call bullshit on this whole fucking thing. He absolutely did not pour water on his face or spill white Gatorade all over his abs.”

     

    “It was his chest, but. Like, you met James that one time—he’s real. And it did happen.”

    Summary

    “...And this weekend is my best friend’s wedding, and you’re inexplicably planning it, and you wear lots of pink, and you say things like, There’s a fire sale in my bedroom, all clothes 100% off. Unironically.”

    Eliot bit his tongue. “I mean, a little ironically.”

    Quentin Coldwater is the youngest and hottest architect in New York City, while his best friend Eliot Waugh is just along for the ride––on his bright pink moped, of course! But when Quentin impulsively quits his dream job to chase love atop the Empire State Building, he panics at the last second… and makes a world-shattering claim. Now, it’s up to Eliot to ensure this strange new Q still gets his happily ever after, though hopefully without destroying his whole life in the process.

    Summary

    Eliot Waugh is a gifted Magician. Without much (any) effort, he is at the top of his third year class at Brakebills University for Magical Pedagogy and is destined to have a successful magical career. He already has his life planned out: graduate his magic school, get a high-paying magic job, buy a top-floor condo next to his Magician best friend, snag a hot Magician husband, and live out his days luxuriating in decadence and magic.

    But he finds his seemingly simple plans derailed when he goes home with a new classmate and meets her very non-Magician best friend.

    How do you sustain a real relationship with someone when you can't tell them the most important, defining fact about yourself?

    Summary

    "Quentin was standing in the farmer’s market waiting for Eliot to finish shopping. He shifted uncomfortably from foot to foot and pulled his jacket tighter around him. His hair fell into his eyes and he reached up to push it behind his ear, a move he had perfected over many years. A message dinged on his phone and he pulled it out of his pocket. He looked down to see a message from Julia flash on the screen, a baby picture from the mommy and me class she was at with Hope. As he smiled and started to type his response he heard his name in the distance."

    Quentin and Julia are reunited with their old friend James and get a chance for closure and maybe a new beginning. Accompanied by Queliot domestic fluff.

    Summary

    A flashing GIF in the sidebar caught his eye. Facebook had changed their ads so they were sneaking past the adblock. He’d have to see if there was an update.

    Summary

    Taking a few more steps away, Quentin let go of her hand and turned to face her, ignoring the confused and amused expression on her face. "Where's the fire, Q?"

    "The fire is right over there," he said, resisting the urge to nod or point or wave his arms, well aware that his faux cheeriness came out sounding a little closer to panic and oh god, was he panicking? "In the approximate size and shape of Eliot fucking Waugh."

    Somehow, he'd still expected surprise. The sheepish look he got instead was just too much. "Right. That."

    It's Julia's wedding day, and apparently no one bothered to tell Quentin that his high school boyfriend that he hadn't seen in ten years was going to be there. Quentin is fine.
