    Summary

    Are they forever going to be crashing through each other’s lives like this? They can’t quite seem to converge without a stomach-swerving sort of chaos—not in this world, in this timeline. Certainly not intentionally and mutually, or without shame, regret and shouldn’t haves. So many mistakes that surely didn’t add up to anything worth learning from. Because of course he shouldn’t have slept with Eliot and he shouldn’t look at him either. Not the way he wants to. The way he knows he always has, even when Alice was right there, sharp-eyed and silent, watching Quentin want things he couldn’t have.

    Quentin never has been very good at stopping himself from wanting.

    Or: Quentin and Eliot have a lot to work out before they can find their way back to one another. And then a whole lot more after that.

    Summary

    There was no way, Eliot would ignore this last chance to bring Q back. Even if it meant going back to a time of his life he hated more than anything else.

    Summary

    10/24/20 Chapters 11,12 and 13 are all new this week.

    ***

    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

    When Quentin returns from Brakebills South without a girlfriend, a pining Eliot makes a split second decision to invite him along on their annual trip to Ibiza. Taking your easily spooked crush to a magic sex festival is definitely a good idea when you’re convinced that he will never want you back.

    Slow burn sexual tension and vacation hijinks from Eliot’s perspective, for anyone who needs more excuses to see these two finally get together. Bonus points if you were supposed to be relaxing on a beach right now.

    Summary

    Eliot Waugh can't give up on the chance he had with the man he loves. No one really did get proof of concept like that. If Alice could come back from being a niffin, if Penny 23 could hop timelines, if Julia could become a goddess, if every other redemption was possible, then was his own. One way or another he'd find his way back to Q.

    Summary

    A story in multiple parts.

    In the beginning, Eliot is old. His life really hasn't gone as planned, not unexpectedly--we know how Eliot is. But, as it turns out, there's a way to fix things, to revise his life. And Margo knows what's best for him; she really does. Even if he doesn't know it himself.

    When he reaches Quentin, things aren't as simple as they seem. When you're two people at once in a world that seems entirely un-magical, nothing is really ever simple.

    And Quentin, as we know is never a simple human to deal with. His protective friend has a lot of things to say when she finds out he's been seduced by Eliot Waugh, talented fashion student and total disaster human that no one should trust.

    It turns out there was a reason Eliot was able to come here, and it's just like everything in his life--completely fucking tragic and complicated. But things slowly start to shift sideways, and there's hope in the strangest of places, and perhaps, magic as well.

    This is a story with: a whole bunch of feelings, explicit sex scenes because that's how I do, lots of Queliot, all the Queliot, characters slightly OC sometimes just because it's a different universe and there are no rules.

    Summary

    Quentin flopped on the bed like a puppet who had his strings sniped. “It’s complicated.”

    Julia yawned. “It always is.” She watched him pout and then huffed an exasperated sigh. “You wanna dance?” Julia didn’t wait for his answer. It wasn’t needed. “Let’s dance.”

    Summary

    In which everyone is a bit older and a bit wiser.

    Quentin is the successful author of a bunch of romance novels. He's searching for inspiration for his next book and maybe looking to live a little vicariously through his characters once again. He's doing his best; taking his meds, seeing his therapist (who somehow tolerates him), and feeding The Catwins every night. Everything is fine until Quentin realizes that he himself could live out some of the fantasies he's only put into writing before.

    Eliot is settling down somewhat in his thirties. While he's still as fabulous as ever, working as a costume designer. He's content as can be in his own little kingdom--really. Well, that is until Quentin comes calling and well and truly throws a complete wrench into things with one simple request. Then he begins to wonder if he was ever really content at all.

    Also, theres a colony of feral cats.

    Or the one where Quentin might just end up living happily ever after and there's lots of kinky sex.
