    Summary

    Summary

    After running for his life from homicidal Neitherlands locals, dealing with infuriatingly vague librarians, and missing several weeks on Earth, the last thing Penny thinks he wants to deal with is Quentin Coldwater's bullshit.

    But, he could be wrong about that.

    AKA, Alice learns to ask for what she wants, Penny learns she's absolutely devious, Quentin is just as bad at warding his thoughts as we know him to be, Penny uses that to his advantage. Set directly after s01 e10.

    Summary

    Quentin and Eliot are ready to retire from saving the world and magical crises, but they have one last mess to fix - saving another Quentin from beyond the grave.

    But they won't be doing it alone, not when another Eliot has been working with Alice Quinn toward the same end. Not when both their timelines' magic is a mess, and the two Fillorys aren't much better.

    One last mess is more complicated than they expected.

    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

    Quentin Coldwater led a relatively normal, quiet, plain life, as one would expect of an aspiring engineering student. That is, until the charismatic whirlwind of Eliot Waugh burst into his life like a flamboyant storm. The two were collective opposites; where Quentin was dorky and shy Eliot was witty and enigmatic, where Quentin held a very small circle of friends Eliot knew the majority of Manhattan. But despite the raw differences they shared, there was an undeniable connection pooling between the two that neither could seem to ignore.

    Mourning the death of his father, Quentin finds himself on Eliot's doorstep one starry spring night. He takes abiding comfort in the warmth of Eliot's skin, the ease of his touch, until what had been a simple kinship shared between close friends falls drastically into something entirely more complicated. As the lines between friendship and something vastly more become blurred, Quentin and Eliot find themselves stranded in some strange, middle place full of hidden feelings and passionate desires. They find a common ground within the horrific tales of their past, but will coming together make them whole or only break them further?

    There was a fine line between heaven and hell.

    Quentin’s run-amuck brain brings all sorts of problems to the table.

    Quentin is starting to make Penny feel funny in his chest (and his pants).

    Fuck Quentin, man.

    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

    “You don’t have to apologize. I just wanted you to know,” Eliot says softly, once Quentin can breathe again, once he’s stopped leaking all over everything, himself and the grass and Eliot. “You deserve to know you’re loved.”

    “I don’t think– I can’t be anyone’s boyfriend right now, Eliot,” and somehow it hurts more to say it now than it had to say it to Alice. But Eliot just smiles, sad but real, and reaches out to smooth Quentin’s hair off his face. It’s too short to hook behind his ear, but Eliot keeps petting him anyway. It feels nice. Grounding.

    The Monster is gone, but that doesn't mean everything's okay. It's not. But maybe Quentin and Eliot can learn to be.
