    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. But some of the words in the GIF stuck out to him. Professional and Upper Class Companions to Important Events. Despite himself, Quentin clicked on the ad.

    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.

    Summary

    Ugh class had been awful. He just wanted to go to his room and lie down before whatever party Eliot and Margo inevitably threw.

    Of course Todd was there when he walked into the cottage. Not that he disliked Todd really, but seeing anyone was going to not be what he wanted.

    "Quentin! Are you going?" Todd asked rather excitedly.

    "Oh um hey Todd. Going to what?"

    "The homecoming dance of course, silly! It's not mandatory, but first years are encouraged to go. The administration thinks it's a good way for first years to socialize with everyone else. So are you going? You have to!"

    "Oh um I hadn't thought about it." Which was true. He hadn't. He remembered Julia saying something about how he should find a date and a tux so they could double with her and Kady. He'd honestly rather stay in his room and read Fillory again. Julia was probably going to get mad at him for not doing more first year events. What was one night, he figured? "But I guess yeah I'll go."

    That answer made Todd smile, "Great! You have a date yet because I have this friend?"

    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

    Quentin ends up in a storage closet with world-famous actor Eliot Waugh. This somehow results in: friendship with the strangest people, growing into his own skin, cookies, the mortifying ordeal of being known, a car named Betty, a teddy bear named Teddy, love letters, ugly scarves and huge sunglasses, smores, the beach, peaches and plums, and maybe possibly, love.

    "Hey Eliot!" Julia greeted the tall and handsome stranger that lived next door to his best friend and that he she had conveniently forgotten to tell him about.

    Eliot looked at her and then over at him, "New roommate?" he asked casually as he locked his door.

    "Yeah. Eliot this is my best friend Quentin. Quentin this is one of my neighbors Eliot." She gave him a look as she introduced them.

    Summary

    Quentin is expelled from Brakebills and has his memories wiped. Eliot keeps his promise to seduce him.

    Quentin sat in Dean Fogg’s office, shaking. In a few minutes every memory of magic that he had was going to be removed and there was nothing he could do about it. Finding out about magic had lifted him from a world where he hadn’t fit in, it had given him purpose, it had given him something to live for. As soon as he went back to his old life he was just going to become as depressed as he had been before. He thought for a moment about what Eliot had said; that he would find him and seduce him and so make life retain its sparkle for decades. Quentin wondered if he had meant it. It was a strange thing to think about with the threat of a magicless life looming over him, but for some reason he found it oddly comforting

    Summary

    “What was I supposed to do, Jules?” Quentin’s voice was louder now, “Was I supposed to come up to you and tell you that you’re the love of my life? Would we have gotten together and been happy or would I have ruined our friendship?”

    “You should have ruined it." Julia’s free hand moved up to Quentin’s shoulder as she watched him closely. Moving in closer, she felt his hand move against her hip. He could feel her rapid heartbeat against his chest. Slowly, Quentin lifted his head to meet his lips with hers.
