    Summary

    “You amuse me,” the Monster said. “Your love for this mortal. So fleeting, so innocent. Tell me a story, Former High King of Fillory. Tell me a story and, if I am well pleased, I will save your love.”

     

    S3 finale goes a bit different and Eliot has to please the Monster with a story. So Eliot tells the Monster Q's story ... which becomes their story.

    [How would The Magicians have gone if Q were genderfluid and discovered it whilst matriculating at Brakebills?]

    Summary

    A happy place can be many things: a childhood hiding spot or warm bed, a parent's embrace or home that is finally our own. Above all else it is a place where we feel safe when everything around us is falling apart.

    Eliot knows this as well as anyone.

    Summary

    my breath catches in your throat, I can feel it. or is it yours catches in mine? a funny phrase, isn't it, though - to catch a breath - like a butterfly, trapped in a cage. what do you think, Eliot? what is it like? to be trapped in a cage?

    The Monster wasn't quite done with Eliot. And as it turned out, it wasn't exactly done with Quentin, either.

    Summary

    "Where are we?" Julia asks. The brightness has faded a little and now she looks, the room is something similar to her childhood living room. Her gaze catches on the sofa where a younger version of herself and Q are sitting, heads pressed close together as they read together. Fillory and Further, of course.

    Q drifts over to take a seat next to his younger self, and Julia does the same. "You already know."

    Julia closes her eyes and tries to get her head on straight. Head. The monster... "We're in my head."

    (or: Julia Wicker saves herself from possession because f*ck that noise)

    Summary

    Everything hurt. Everything ached. He just wanted to curl up in a ball in some dark corner of a room somewhere and not leave, forever. He had saved Eliot, his job was done. He even survived the journey to the Seam. He hadn’t been completely unharmed, but no one needed to know about the series of burns currently eating away at one side of his body. Neither Alice nor 23 had seemed to notice, not that any of them seemed to notice much about him these days. They had gone back through the portal mere minutes ago and gone their separate ways.

    Summary

    Ever since Quentin had come back from the mirror realm, things had been… different. He had been different. He knew it, and he knew everyone else was noticing it too.
    After everything that had happened, they finally had a break… so why did he still feel like he couldn’t breathe?

    Summary

    Quentin, Alice and Penny travel to the Mirror World to toss the bottles in the seam. Quentin thinks about doing a minor mending on the mirror after Everette shatters it, but instead ambient magic runs out before he can think of what else to do, and something else entirely happens...

    Penny doesn't decide Julia's fate, she does...

    And The Monster has his own plans...

    (In which I re-write the Season 4 ending and get to imagine more moments with all these amazing characters)

    Summary

    He propels the idea out of a cannon. Buries it in the backwoods. Battens down the hatches. But the thought forms all the same.
    What if… the axes didn’t work all the way? Maybe a part of The Monster… is still inside him. And it’d found his Happy Place, and was trying to get out.
    Well. Shit.
    He wants to smile. He wants to laugh. A full body, Coo Coo for Cocoa Puffs cackle. Because otherwise, he’s going to start screaming again. Loud enough to shatter all the glass around them.

    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

    He’d forced himself to stop reading up on missing persons investigative procedures sometime last night. Between the advice to call local hospitals, homeless shelters, morgues, and the constant reminders that if you didn’t find any solid threads to follow within the first 48 hours, well. There was only so long any person could spend tugging at their hair and trying not to hyperventilate. For a moment, he had considered bringing it up the next time he saw his therapist, going back onto something for his resurging anxiety, but no. This was something that needed to be felt. The grey concrete walls of the interview room felt more and more suffocating by the minute.

    Muldoon cleared his throat, drawing Brian’s attention back from their warped reflections on the metal table. “Look, I get it. It’s frustrating, I know, but we still can’t even say for sure that he’s actually missing.”

    “Yeah, uh-huh, except that he’s, you know, actually fucking missing.”
