    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

    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?

    or

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

    Summary

    Eliot Waugh is an actor on the brink of the biggest break of his career. Quentin Coldwater is a former child star turned aspiring screenwriter who's paying his dues as a glorified PA. Three years of near-constant contact has turned their codependent working relationship into a close, comfortable bond that one refuses to examine too closely and the other is reluctant to risk.

    When the studio behind Eliot's prospective new project expresses their doubts about his party boy public image, his reps brainstorm a way to make him more marketable: raffling off a night on the town on Eliot's arm. The winner is a wholesome farm boy from Brakebills, Texas, who makes such an impression that Eliot agrees to take a vacation from the spotlight to spend some time in Mike's tiny hometown. But somewhere between bar bathrooms and bad motels, Eliot might be brave enough to act on what he really wants… and Quentin might just manage to write his way to a happy ending.

    Loosely based, with liberal creative license, on Win a Date with Tad Hamilton.

    Summary

    A tribute to a season 6 I would love to see for the amazing show: The Magicians. So sad to see it canceled and channeled my upset into writing. Hope you enjoy!

    NB: I am British and so have tried to stick to British grammar. Which isn't my strong suit.

    Chapter 1 follows Alice, Fen, Josh and Margo on New Fillory, as well as Eliot, Dean Fogg and Charlton back on Earth.

    Summary

    An anthology of King Eliot the Spectacular and some of the bullshit he had to experience. Lots of Queliot. This is post-season 4. The Monser is defeated. Quentin was brought back from the Underworld. Season 5 never happened, because frankly, I could give a shit, and I also haven't watched it yet.

    Summary

    Prompt from @justlikeregularchickens:

    "I don't think we have nearly enough whump in this fandom, so I'd like to propose a 'hella sick Q and a worried Eliot' if you're down for it!"

    Trigger Warning! There are mentions of blood and injury, but nothing worse than what we see on the show.

    Season 1-2 AU Where Eliot doesn’t have to marry Fen but has to use a loophole to make her a queen to put a Fillorian on the throne instead of Alice.

    Quentin gets attacked by a magical rose in Fillory. The only cure is True Love's Kiss.

    Summary

    King Quentin seems to take their silence for discomfort and frowns guiltily. "Sorry, there's probably more important stuff I should be asking," he mumbles, fidgeting with his sleeve. "Is there, um, a cure for cancer? Who's the president?"

    Eliot grimaces, and can practically feel the others doing the same.

    "Ask about Zunes again," Penny says.

    or: In order to take his rightful place as High King of Fillory, Eliot first has to meet the current king in Whitespire - King Quentin, who's been waiting for the High King to arrive in Fillory since he first ended up there himself.

    Summary

    Margo sighs when she finally finds Eliot, stepping through the open balcony doors and announcing herself by saying, "You know, you're the High King, but that doesn't mean you have to be this dramatic all the time."

    Eliot scoffs, his hands tight on the railing. He turns to give her a smile. "It absolutely does."

    "Well, maybe because it's you," she concedes, stepping closer and laying her hand on Eliot's. "What's wrong?" she asks, quieter.

    "Nothing," Eliot says, a blatant lie. He sighs. "I don't know. I feel... unsettled."

    Summary

    Eliot’s pain was a hollow thing. For weeks during his recovery he’d been too numb to feel it, the emptiness growing inside, but once he finally could he’d spent a not insignificant amount of time wondering if the Monster had taken his shade. It made sense, sort of, aside from all those times that he couldn’t stop crying. It was like someone had come along and scraped out all the goodness he’d had left. There was nothing now. Just a deep, pulsing blackness where once there had been so much light.

    aka the one where Eliot is so desperate to bring Quentin back he's willing to do almost anything, even if that means losing himself in the process. Canon divergent after 4x13.

    Summary

    "Come in" He heard Alice call from within, after he knocked on her bedroom door.

    She was at her desk working on papers, probably for the Library if he had to take a guess. 

    "I found something." The smile on his face as he said those words was something that couldn't be helped. 

    Alice leaned back in her chair and looked up at him, "What?" She questioned. 

    He handed her the book, sat down on the edge of her bed, watched her open to the page he'd bookmarked and the passage he'd highlighted and waited for the inevitable no. 

    "You can't be serious?" She asked, having read the part he'd highlighted. 

    "So very serious my dear Alice."

    Her mouth opened and closed again like she kept wanting to say something but it wasn't coming out.

    "No, go ahead tell me how awful this idea is, how we can't do that Eliot, the what about all the timeline consequences Eliot? I don't give one flying fuck about any of that." 

    "That's not what I was going to say." She said giving him a look. "I was going to say that it might actually work,you dummy." She told him, getting up from her desk and sitting next to him on the bed,  gently nudging his shoulder with hers.

    Summary

    "You should have been more hospitable to strangers my dear Margo and my young Prince." As the stranger spoke she transformed into the Witch of the Darkling Woods. "For since you both laughed in my face and I see no love in your hearts except for each other there will be a curse on you and all that live in this castle." Picking up the rose, she continued, "If you both can learn to love another as you love each other and they return your love before the last petal falls the curse will be broken. If not you will both remain as you will be."
