    Summary

    ... Brian counts love in the feel of soft wool under his fingers the same way Quentin does in the taste of plums on his tongue, because those counts come back to the same man, when all is said and done.
     

    In which Brian and Nigel meet, fall in love, and have months together before the Monster shows up. Once his memories are back, Quentin faces the events of season 4 with a second layer of proof of concept lingering in his mind. It only makes the grief sharper, but can it also give him an anchor to hold onto?

    Summary

    A Pan's Labyrinth/Magicians AU. Of sorts. Maybe it's not actually an AU.

    "A long time ago, there lived a moderately socially-maladjusted king of Fillory who dreamed of other worlds. One day, he walked through a doorway and lost his memory. He forgot who he was and where he came from. His body and mind had suffered from so much pain, and the doorway had falsely promised to take him where he was supposed to go next. His friends, among them King Eliot the Spectacular, Queen Alice the Wise, High King Margo the Destroyer, and Julia the God-touched, found a way to return the young king to where he truly belonged. But first, he needed to prove he hadn't become someone else while trapped beyond the door." ---The Binder

    Summary

    If you ask Margo, she’ll say it all started that night at Brakebills. If you ask Alice, she’ll say it all started that day in Whitespire. But, let’s be real here, it doesn’t really matter how the whole thing got started. What matters is that one day, Alice came up from Whitespire’s library and found out that Quentin had killed a god.

    Or: Alice recovers in Fillory instead of at Brakebills South. S3 AU.

    Summary

    post 4x13 - Queliot centric but includes everyone.

    Quentin has the chance to live again, but making it back to where he is needed most might not be as easy as he thought it would be.

    Meanwhile, three centuries have passed in Fillory, leaving many mysteries to solve for Margo, while Eliot waits for Quentin reminiscing on their life together.

    And Julia searches for meaning to her existence, for a way to get her true magic back, and how she can be a Goddess again on her terms.

    Caution: some triggering themes. Chapters will be appropriately marked in the notes and at the beginning of those chapters. Take care of yourself. This story will have a happy ending.

    Summary

    It's simply a matter of numbers.

    Eventually Jane will spin the right combination, and this whole nightmare will be over.

    For now, though, she continues to chronicle every last moment leading up to her hero's demise, to remind herself that the price of failure is not just lives lost but an entire universe: dreams, pain, magic, trauma, hope, every branching, delicate thread of impossible future.

    She stands among her failures and remembers.

    Summary

    Quentin has known Eliot for seven months when it occurs to him: he’s got no idea what Eliot’s major is.

     

    “I don’t know why you don’t just ask him,” Julia says over her paper cup, shrugging, “if you’re so curious, just ask him it’s not like it’s some state secret.”

     

    “I can’t, Jules, you know I can’t,” he cries, setting his own coffee down with a little more force than necessary. “It’s too late now, we’re way past this shit. It’s gonna be weird if I bring it up now.”

    *

    or, the one that Quentin is on a mission to figure out what Eliot's major is and gets a few other answers along the way.

    Summary

    On the tablet Eliot saw a webpage from the New York Daily News, and at the top was a picture of an old woman, holding her own death certificate and smiling. The headline said, "DEAD RISE AGAIN IN QUEENS, BROOKLYN."

    Margo said, "You bitches better sober up, because this is a massive goddamn problem, and it just might get us our friend back."
     

    Even in the middle of tragedy, sometimes you can have a cosmically lucky accident.

    Eliot is struggling under the pressure to produce his next album. It doesn't help that his songwriting partner is the love of his life — and his most recent ex.

    Alice just wants out from under her parents' shadow. For years her music has been centered on other people's expectations, and she's ready to take back control.

    Summary

    After Q dies, the gang shatters in some pretty spectacular ways. Alice leaves without a word and somehow finds herself on a fucked up road trip with the former Dean Fogg. Julia is left to clean up the pieces of the life her best friend left behind and also maybe fights a god. And Eliot gives up magic, may or may not be drinking to die, and gets adopted by a stray that follows him home.

    So it goes. Until Quentin starts popping up in reflective surfaces. Magic comes from pain, but pain comes from love. And these three? They’ve leveled up, motherfuckers.
