    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, and much bigger problems just keep happening.

    Summary

    Part two of an ongoing series that splits off from canon at the end of S3. Alice blocked the magic siphon at the very last moment, setting in motion a chain of other changed decisions. Much of the outcome diverges from what follows in canon. Some things do not.

    Picks up immediately after the end of part one, “Defying Gravity.” Eliot and Quentin, having decided to explore a real relationship, go back to Earth. As it turns out, the return of magic has at least one sadly predicted result.

    Summary

    author's summary:

    He shoots the monster, but the monster doesn’t die. Apparently the meat suit it’s wearing doesn’t have to be living, exactly. They don’t realize that until after the debacle with the keys and the library showing up, however.

    But that’s fine. Nigel, the bastard son of a British Lord, doesn’t know or care about monsters.

    A re-imagining of the death of Quentin's father if Eliot was not possessed by The Monster.

    Summary

    “He’s dead now, I think we can stop criticizing him,” Quentin says, and his mom does that thing where she’s not actually rolling her eyes because that would be childish and inappropriate. Instead, she just looks up for a moment and blinks up at the ceiling, or God, maybe, commiserating with them about Quentin and what a - a Quentin he is.
