    Summary

    He’d thought that his feelings for Quentin would diminish. A longer half life than normal, but fading nonetheless. But he’d had to actively push Quentin from his mind, working at losing him piece by piece (—two rivers, a continent— he thinks), but it was work, an active extrication, dulled by alcohol and drugs and sun-soaked, over-waxed men. It had taken time and the death of brain cells, his sobriety and losing the life he’d tried to build—

    —but Eliot is sure, as soon as Quentin walks into his patisserie, that all of that resistance, the repeated acts of forgetting, was for nothing.

    **Fic is incomplete. Abandoned.**

    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

    11/27/20

    COMPLETE. Comments are love.

    *

    After the events at Blackspire, Quentin and Eliot settle down together in Manhattan, eventually joined by most of their friends. No external crises on the horizon (or are there...?), no longer in school; they're left with a lot of money and time to explore who they are, what they want, and what they still need to work through--both as a couple and individually.

    Along the way: travel, fine dining and wining, kink, friendship, parties, hedonism, friction, self discovery, a mystery or two, and--of course--magic.

    This work continues the series For Want of a Nail, an AU serial novel where the Library doesn't succeed in siphoning off magic, and every major character escapes from Blackspire intact. (Including the Monster, but never mind that right now...)

    Chapter one picks up a few weeks after Quentin and Eliot's return to New York from New Jersey in Familiarity.

    Summary

    The knight stood up straighter and nodded. “Yes! I was trained growing up, you know, to be a knight. In magic. And things.”

    “And things? Where are you from?”

    “Gelderland. A small township. Brilliant but far… far away.”

    “Is this your first tournament?” Eliot asked.

    “Yes. No! No. It’s not, but it is my first one HERE. In Rouen.” At Eliot’s bewildered expression, the knight continued. “I’m sorry, you’re just… you’re royalty, yes? I’ve never really spoken to any members of the royal families before, and you have really nice eyes and you’re so tall and I’m… going to stop talking now.”

    Eliot had to try hard to suppress the grin from forming on his face. Even though what the knight was saying didn’t really make sense (you had to speak to someone in royalty to even become a knight), that didn’t stop the flirtatious tone flowing from his lips. “Please don’t stop. I would hear you speak if it cost me my ears.”

    The man’s face had been tinged pink, but at Eliot’s words, they blossomed into full scarlet.

    Again, just unable to contain himself, Eliot continued “Are you sure you’re a knight? I don't think I've ever met one that blushed before.”

    Summary

    Quentin had got so used to wanting to die, he supposed he didn't realize how bad it had gotten until it was almost too late.

    OR

    Author refuses to watch season 5 until she knows Quentin comes back, and until then, will fix the end of season 4.

    OR

    The whole problem could've been avoided if they hadn't spent so much time staring at the Seam instead of throwing the bottles into it.

    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? And what happens when the dust finally settles?

    Summary

    “Fuck buddies, boyfriend, girlfriend, whatever,” Margo said.  “It’s all off-limits. Right?” She turned to Eliot.
    “That’s right.  No boyfriends, no lovers,” Eliot agreed, “and no one you want to be fucking, either.” He was looking at Quentin and Alice, which was deeply unfair, because he’d told Eliot - 
    “Aw, but that really limits poor Q’s choices,” Margo drawled. She was looking at Penny, and now Quentin was sure that failing the Trial and getting kicked out of Brakebills had to be better than staying in this room one minute longer.

    Summary

    "Our branch has gotten an influx of employees after the Monster's massacre," Penny explains. "The Neitherlands, on the other hand, is seriously understaffed at the moment."

    "You—" Quentin stops. His thinking is still a bit clouded. Surely Penny can't be suggesting what Quentin thinks he's suggesting. "You want me to work in the Neitherlands branch? Don't you have to be, you know, alive? To do that?"

    "Dude. You stopped the Monster and his sister—something even the gods couldn't do—and took out Everett before he became a real threat. Hades himself offered your life back as a reward. With conditions, obviously."

    Summary

    Q wasn't sure if something was missing. He used to think there was-- he felt it like a missing limb. But now… Now, he thought maybe if there was something missing it didn't matter, because maybe he would be okay regardless. He had more than a few people to thank for that.
    (Eliza wasn't the specialist, but somehow that's okay.)
