    Summary

    “How -- how the hell -- so magic is actually real?” Quentin splutters. He can’t catch his breath.

    The curl of Eliot’s lips is sharp and beautiful, and Quentin gets the sudden, startling image of battleships sunk on the edge of that smile.

    “Oh, it’s very real.”

    --

    or: "what if they met in group therapy?"

    Eliot is poised to become the next leader of his coven of Hedge Witches, but Margo forces him go to therapy first.

    Quentin’s just trying to keep his head above water. He’s never met anyone who can do magic before.

    And Eliot doesn't mind bringing home a stray, especially a cute one.

    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

    "You need to go off the garden path." - Jane Chatwin

    "The bridge between your past self and your present self is delicate. If you break it…" - Alice Quinn

    After forty timeloops, one little shift caused by Quentin's timeshare spell was enough to create a splinter timeline - Timeline 41. In Timeline 41, "Mike" is around for longer, but Eliot, Margo, and Quentin get closer in the end. So do Alice and Penny. Friendships take unexpected turns, and they left the garden path behind long ago. But all roads lead, in the end, to Fillory.

    Part of a series but can be mostly read as a standalone.

    Summary

    Quentin shook out the tension in his hands. He didn’t understand why it wasn’t getting any easier. For days on end he’d been trying to perfect the illumination spell the rest of his fellow First Years had nailed in a matter of hours. But no matter how he tried, Quentin couldn’t seem to make anything more than a spark.

    He didn’t know what was worse: that his discipline was apparently shit at magic, or that he’d been placed in the Physical Kids’ Cottage with his ex-whatever-the-hell-they’d-been-in-undergrad because the administration didn’t know what else to do with him. He couldn’t do shit about the latter, but he figured he could at least try and get the basics of magic down before Dean Fogg realized what a grave mistake he’d made in allowing Quentin into Brakebills to begin with.

    OR

    The one where Quentin and Eliot are exes who had an intense D/s relationship in undergrad.

    Summary

    Eliot’s face instantly brightens and he says, “Oh my god, multiple orgasms, we have to—”

    At the same moment Margo says, “Right, priorities, I have to fuck someone with your enormous cock.”

    ---

    One unremarkable day Margo and Eliot wake up in each other's bodies—it all spins out of control from there.

    Summary

    “Quentin’s gone. He died saving me,” Eliot told her. "A world without Quentin is not a world I want to live in,” Eliot said firmly. His heart had broken the moment he had heard that Quentin had died while throwing the monster into the Seam in the Mirror World.

    “You’ve come to see if I can change time for you,” Jane said with certainty in her voice.

    “Can you?” He asked her.

    “The watch I’ve used before would reset the entire timeloop, back to the very start, before you all came to Fillory and confronted the beast. Once there, in the next timeline you would not remember this timeline at all."

    “There must be a way to send my memories to the next loop,” Eliot said desperately. “Please, I need to fix this. I need Q.” he confessed. It was the first time he had said that aloud since returning to his own body.

    “Very well, then. Since you are so sure, I will help you." Jane said.

    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

    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

    "I’ve been thinking about you,” Eliot continues, and Quentin’s heart nearly stops in his chest. Warning bells, sirens, flashing signs—this is not good. Not good.

    “Well—don’t. Stop,” Quentin says. The top few buttons on Eliot's shirt are undone and how is he supposed to just be an adult and say no to this?

    Eliot cracks a small smile, sliding just a little bit closer. "Don't stop?" he says.

    “Eliot—just—please go back to the bar. You don’t really want this.”

    Eliot frowns. “I’m a big boy, Professor,” he says, huffing out a breath. “I know what I want. The question is,” Eliot continues, Quentin holding his breath as Eliot leans into his space, “What do you want?”

    Quentin’s mouth goes dry as his brain spins with acceptable responses. For you to go back to Brakebills and sober up—A nice cold glass of water—A redo of the last five years—An actual responsible adult—but what comes out is, “What I want doesn’t matter.”

    Eliot’s face grows softer, the frown disappearing and his eyes searching Quentin’s face. “It does to me,” he says quietly. Cold fingers encircle Quentin's palm, and he closes his eyes as Eliot slots their fingers together and squeezes.

    Summary

    It is stupid and dangerous, and yeah it is, but to Quentin, it is worth it. It is worth everything to get Eliot back. Worth his life, worth magic, all of it. But, it doesn't work. He doesn't even know what happened to Eliot, if the Monster is still there or if Eliot was even okay.

     
    You don't deserve to know.

     

    He tells himself.

     

    It's your fault, it's your fault, it's your fault.

     
    He knows this, they all know this. So Quentin disappears.
