    Summary

    In a world where only Magicians present with sexual designations, Alphas Margo Hanson and Eliot Waugh have two main rules: no omegas and no undesignated first years.
    Obviously, they did have a third rule. But it didn't need reiterating, Margo and Eliot came first. They were a unit.
    They kept their habit of seducing first year Brakebills boys to presented Betas and Alphas and outside of their own dynamic, the duo don't really have friends.
    When first-year Quentin Coldwater shows up all doe-eyed, Eliot is surprised when he worms his way under his skin and Margo can barely admit that she can't get him out of her head. Quentin is mostly oblivious, as usual.

    What happens when Margo and Eliot get to know Quentin while waiting for him to present?
    The duo wasn't looking for a regular, let alone a committed third, at least as far as Margo knew.
    What happens when Quentin finally does present? Far later than most magical adepts, in the middle of the cottage sitting room?
    *Previously titled Treacherous, reposted due to edits*

    Summary

    It's easy for Quentin to figure out that he's bi. It's not quite as straightforward to figure out why, most of the time, he doesn't seem to want anyone at all anyway.

    And even when he has a word for it, even when he knows there's nothing actually wrong, the trouble of only being able to want under specific circumstances means knowing what to do about a crush on one of your best friends is even more daunting. Especially when it's not going away this time.

    Summary

    This is what the holidays are supposed to be, Quentin thinks, and then: I think I get why this is a time for family.

    or

    It's time for the holidays during Quentin and Alice's third (well, second) year at Brakebills. The Physical Kids celebrate.

    Summary

    Quentin wants to sink through the floor. He can feel his neck and his cheeks flare hot, and his eyes skitter away from Eliot’s perceptive gaze. But then Eliot is turning back to the door, and he’s opening it and basically manhandling him through it, which — okay. Apparently is a thing for him as well.

    He has A Thing for tall guys named Eliot who smirks at him and looks at him and manhandles him through doors.

    Okay.

    Okay, he can deal with this.

    He still doesn’t know what he’s doing here, but he can deal with this.

    Because it turns out that tall guys named Eliot are the least of his problems.

    or;

    The one in which Magicians find their Soulmates through different means, and nobody seems to have informed Quentin of this.

    Summary

    A million beautiful gold lights burst from the air, shooting through everything in the room. Quentin ran, but he wasn't fast enough. Time slowed down when she screamed, and he turned to look at her, his eyes wide in shock as those little lights shot through him. Black wisp exploded from inside his body high in the air, his outstretched arm the only thing she could see until the smoke and gold hid that away from her too.
    And she fell apart.

    Summary

    It’s Elliot's impassioned plea before the Grecian pantheon of gods that is the straw that breaks the camel's back.

    Margo had managed to get the questers an audience with the pantheon, through methods which she had refused to disclose. Anytime someone, even Eliot, would ask how on earth she had done it, her only answer was a raised eyebrow and a quip that someone had needed to grow a pussy around there and do something to get their baby Q back.

    Standing before the pantheon, everyone was more than a little worried about how this would all turn out - given their track record with gods and all - but it was for Quentin. They all owed it to him to at the very least try. And so they swallowed their fear, pushed it to the back of their mind, or stuffed it down and turned it into fire because if there was one thing the questers were entirely sure of - this was not going to be easy. Nothing had ever been easy for them and there was no reason to expect, at all, that this long shot of an opportunity would be any different.

    Summary

    So... what if Quentin didn't die? What if that mirror never broke and he didn't have to cast? What if, instead of taking their sweet time tossing those flasks in, Penny and Alice and Q got it done? What would've happened then?

    That's right, friends, foes, and comrades, it's the fix-it fic that is approximately a full year late and that absolutely nobody asked for. There will be angst! There will be near death experiences! Eventually, there will be love! Strap on your seatbelts, everyone, it's about to get fun. This is absolutely, 100% canon-divergent for anything after the season 4 finale, just to clarify.

    Summary

    The problem Quentin has is that he never fucking knows when he's going into heat until it's on him.

    The problem Eliot has is that, while spared the worst of dumbass alpha behavior, he has really strong protective instincts.

    Summary

    “You know the worst part of getting exactly what you want? When you realize that only a fucking asshole would have wanted it in the first place."

    (Or: On the West Coast, Quentin tries to figure it out.)

    Summary

    Eliot Waugh was not always the spectacular second year student Quentin had the good fortune to meet on his first day at Brakebills. “Self-made” for better or worse, fits Eliot to the T, and the beginning of everything he was and became, started in Indiana.

    It started with the new girl.

    Summary

    Honestly, his life was a wreck. Crash and boom and burn, baby. Skid marks on the pavement outside a school in Whitefield.

    Eliot — should have known better. Should have known what he could and couldn’t handle. Should have seen the signs that he was being too open with his fucking feelings, spilling his broken shit everywhere, letting it boil over because he was too goddamn scared of being burned to hold the lid down himself. Well, guess what. It boiled over. The pot’s dry. His shit spilled and now they’re all sitting in the mess he’s made.

    And best of all? It’s the funniest fucking thing that’s ever happened to him.

    But worst of all? No one else gets the goddamn joke.

    Well. No one except maybe —

    Summary

    Quentin, as a general rule, was not a big fan of parties. He showed up, he hung on Eliot’s arm for a bit, drank something fruity, and either escaped upstairs or sat in the nook with a friend. But something told him this one was shaping up to be something special.

    Summary

    Once they were down the stairs and outside, Eliot spoke once more. "So, the usual ending to this conversation is to ask what you want to do next. Any thoughts?"

    "Ummmm..." Quentin thought about it. "Can I ask you to go first?"

    "Sure," Eliot said easily. "I'd love to try spanking you properly. We could discuss transitioning that to face slapping, too, since it seems like you want that, or we could try them separately. I really want to see your ass all red for me, though."

    "Okay. Um. My answer isn't kinky, really," Quentin said. "I, um, think I'm ready to try front hole sex?"

    Summary

    ... no one is coming for him, if he is going to get out he’ll have to save himself. And if he does get out, he can never go back, because there is no place for him there anymore. He can’t imagine they’d even want him, and he has no interest in pity or obligation. 

    If he gets out, they’re never going to know.

    Quentin escapes the Underworld, and finds himself in Narnia. But, having seen his friends let him go and move on, he believes there's no point in trying to get back, and settles down where he is. But his past is not done with him yet, as he learns when a window opens between Narnia and New Fillory...

    Summary

    When Quentin got dragged out of the house in the middle of the night, he'd at least still been up, so he still had his binder on and that was fine. Margo roofie-ing him had also happened while he was awake and fully dressed, and when he woke up in the woods, or wherever he'd really been, his clothes didn't appear to have been touched or messed with at all, so that was fine too.

    There was no avoiding it this time. Quentin knew, they all knew, what 'bare yourself' meant, and he was in a blind fucking panic.

    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.

    One last mess is more complicated than they expected.
