    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

    Margo is back and Quentin is dealing. And by dealing, he is absolutely not dealing with anything. But Eliot needs them, and so does Julia. Or, a Librarian wants to become a god, a neo-fascist organization wants to stomp out a rebellion, and a couple of high-strung millennials just want to take a fucking nap.

    (In this house, we accept the canon we think we deserve, which is better than whatever the fuck those last three episodes of season 4 were.)

    Summary

    “How do I passive aggressively say ‘fuck you’ in flowers?”

    Julia's flowers was founded by a depressed philosophy student in the prime of his life, sandwiched between a pet shop and sushi joint off Route 17 (Quentin suspected there was some sort of mutual agreement between the two in regards to unsold guppies) with seances held in the back room. Eliot walked through the front door, asking for that very specific bouquet. Things ensue.

    Between a secret wedding for a DonnaMatrix, a mysterious dog, a cute boy, contacting the dead, and maybe saving the world? Quentins having an eventful week.

    ‘To your first year at Brakebills and our very last year of deadly peril, Q,’ Eliot says with a smile. He drinks from the bottle, his sun-warmed throat dancing in the lights, and holds the bottle out to Quentin.

    Summary

    Quentin opens his mouth, closes it. He frowns deeply. "I want both of you."

    "That's not - " Penny starts.

    Eliot steps forward, closer. "Q," he interrupts. "You don't mean that the way it sounds, do you?" he asks. Penny looks at him like he's crazy. "You want both of us," he repeats quietly.

    "What the fuck are you two talking about?" Penny asks, glancing between them. Then, "oh."

    Summary

    Summary

    Quentin and Eliot settle down together in Manhattan, eventually joined by most of their friends. Without any (apparent) external crises on the horizon, no longer in school, the world at their feet and magic at their fingertips, they're left with a lot of money and leisure time to explore who they are and what they want, individually and as a couple.

    This work is a continuation of the series For Want of a Nail, picking up a few weeks after Quentin and Eliot's return to New York from New Jersey in Familiarity. You could read it as a standalone, but it'll probably make more sense if you start from the beginning, as this series taken together is really one long single story.

    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.
