    Summary

    Eliot Waugh seemingly has everything he needs— work he believes in, world travel, and most importantly he has Margo, his best friend and his rock. A temporary assignment in Kampala, Uganda, however, may upend Eliot’s world—including his habitually casual love life—when he meets Quentin Coldwater, a soft-spoken, mysterious young doctor to whom he is irrevocably drawn.

    Quentin Coldwater is guarding a secret, one that separates him from everyone but Ted, his oldest and dearest friend. He’s created a careful life apart, in Kampala, where he can help people in need while staying tucked away from the rest of the world. Quentin isn’t planning on falling in love again, but with Ted’s encouragement he’ll let himself get close to the captivating, unusual Eliot— until a spectre from his past threatens discovery, shattering the safety that he’s so carefully created. Will Quentin’s secret tear them apart?

    This is a story of two people with complex pasts taking risks, great and small, for a powerful and unexpected love.

    Summary

    “You need a hobby,” Julia says, two sandwiches and a cup of coffee later. Quentin has graduated to a sort of slumped but upright position on the couch. He already wants to lie back down. “Something that’ll get you out of the house.”

    “What if I don’t want to leave the house,” Quentin says, but it’s mostly for show. He’s been doing this for a month, of course he’s tired of it. It’s just that he’s tired of everything else too.

     

    or, Quentin goes to group therapy.

    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 rolled his eyes. “I’ve been kidnapped before.” The leader glared at him out of the corner of his eye, not keen on engaging with him again. Here he was for the second time, taken from the castle. This time, instead of traveling the roads, he was in a damp cave with 4 smelly and emotionally stunted men. Last time had been fine. They kept moving and even let Eliot out of his binds. Now, he hadn’t moved at all in 2 weeks and his ass hurt. Oh, and did he mention it was wet?

    Quentin saves Eliot when the royal guard can't, but there's something Eliot doesn't know.

    Summary

    (I'm so good at titles.)

    Quentin Coldwater had died. Well, almost. All of his friends are glad to hear that he returned intact--except he wasn't. Something went wrong. Quentin wasn't Quentin anymore. Eliot Waugh is still pining for him, but has to watch as Quentin doesn't even regard Alice romantically anymore. Meanwhile, Julia is figuring out how to handle her emotions and use them to her advantage. The group has to find a way to get Quentin's shade back before he realizes his full and not so benevolent potential. Is this the origin of a darker timeline or can Quentin be returned to a state of completeness by those that love him?

    Or the fic in which Q is a dick but in a kind of funny antagonistic way and everyone else is stressed out.

    (This is a very rough draft. I WILL be revising it in the future and adding more content.)

    Summary

    Here he was, at Hogwarts. Quentin had dreamed of being a student here forever. He could feel the magic thrumming in the air, could see it in the lights twinkling in the ceiling.

    He felt a tickle on the back of his neck, and he looked to the table of green and silver ties. Quentin forced himself to not look to the ground, and his brown eyes locked with a set of hazel ones. Even at this distance, he could see the intensity within, a sparkle of excitement as they swept over him, head to foot and back up again. Quentin’s breath hitched and he wiped his suddenly damp palms on his robes.

    Hazel Eyes also had full dark hair, short, wavy and slightly mussed, with a stray curl or two falling over his forehead. Quentin took in his strong jaw, full lips, a tiny cleft in his chin, and a slightly loosened tie peeking out above the neck of his robe. He exuded the kind of effortless, lazy sexiness that Quentin knew he couldn’t embody in one finger on his best day.

    Hazel Eyes made no attempt to hide his appraisal of Quentin. A slow smile spread across his lips as he stared back at him, his look full of promise and intent that Quentin wasn’t sure he could handle. But I sure would love to try, Quentin thought.

    Summary

    After the quiet that was his dad's place for the winter break, returning to Brakebills is almost overwhelming. Of course, that probably has something to do with the fact that he comes back in the middle of a belated New Year's party - or maybe it's just a celebration of a new semester? Hell, knowing the Physical Cottage, it might just be a party for the sake of it.

     

    Quentin puts his wards back up quickly, and they help block some of the noise, but they don't block Margo bursting into his room, ascertaining that he's brought all his shit in, and then grabbing him by the arm and dragging him back downstairs to say hi to everyone. She's a good buffer, even if she's a whirlwind, and when she's satisfied that Quentin's fulfilled his social obligations for the moment, she deposits him safely in 'his' seat by the bar, the one he'd unofficially claimed three weeks into last semester. "Take care of our little nerd, El," she says, pecking a kiss to Quentin's cheek before taking the drink Eliot hands her and disappearing back into the crowd.
