    Summary

    “I was—talking more about, you know. Bringing someone, or someones in, like, once—or twice, you know, if we--if it's good. When we—yeah. If we like it."

    Oh. Oh.

    "You mean swinging," Eliot summarizes, and, of course the word makes Quentin go a brilliant red.

    "Yeah," he grumbles. "If you wanna, uh, put a label on it." 

    Grappling with early empty-nesting feelings, Quentin and Eliot throw themselves into domestic hobbies and decide, hey, now is probably the time for them to experiment, now that they have the house to themselves. Which is something they both want, obviously... doesn’t everybody? At least a little? Well, Eliot is fine but... who needs to tell your life-partner of a decade or so that you only want to be with him, forever? Isn’t it better to just deal with one night of swinging if that’s what he wants—and it is what he wants, right?

    Summary

    Eliot stopped and scooped up the little boy to rest him on his hip in one arm. He was starting to get just a little too big for being carried and Eliot knew there would come a day they wouldn’t be able to pick him up anymore. But that day wasn’t going to be it.

    Summary

    Of all the magical upgrades they’d made in their little clearing, the concealment charm embedded in the garden around the mosaic was probably the least necessary… and the most frequently utilized.

    Summary

    I think today was by far our best attempt yet. The pattern was nothing special, just a sun coming over the waving sea. It was pretty, don't get me wrong, but what really made it beautiful happened after we laid the final tile. El looked around, saw nothing changed, and just. Half collapsed, half fell across the ground like he does, that dramatic asshole. His long legs sprawled out over the ocean and his head lined up perfectly with the sun, making a kind of halo that fit him like nothing else ever will. When i saw that i just couldn't help myself from thinking that even in defeat and disarray, Eliot Waugh is truly the beauty of all life. if the puzzle had any sense it would have given us the key right then. 

    My next thought, of course, was. Holy shit i do not have the mental energy to unpack that right now, and i think that second thought is correct. If I'm good at anything (I'm not), it's avoiding the things I should be processing, but that's a problem for later.

    In the mosaic timeline, Quentin keeps a journal, talking about their conversations, attempts at the mosaic, and whatever else is on his mind. both of the boys are messes and its v gay.

    Summary

    “If it stops being fun for you, darling, we’ll call it off,” Eliot said soothingly, on day one. “You have a safeword and you know how to use it.” He stroked his thumb down Quentin’s cheek. “I did wonder if this was going to be more than you could handle.”

    Okay, well, that wasn’t going to fucking stand. “I can handle it,” Quentin snapped. “Doesn’t mean I have to like it.”

    “That’s right,” Eliot said. “We have to like it. You just have to be good."
