    Summary

    He’s bleary eyed, stumbling along the sidewalk, lights from the city glaring down at him, chest heaving with every aching, heavy breath. He can still feel the dirt between his teeth, the coarse texture of it lining his throat from where he’d breathed it in. His fingers ache, cuticles bleeding and tender where the dirt lines them. He glances down at them, vision going dark for a moment before phasing back in. His hands stretched out in front of him, palm out. Hands are so dirty.

    Or, Quentin digs himself out of a grave.

    Summary

    He was gutted when Brian didn’t show up that night. A week ago now. He’d gone to bed after drinking half of the wine and eating a cold crab cake. And at midnight—Brian had shown up, and Nigel had been—maybe delighted is too strong a word. He was pleased. Maybe there was an explanation—an accident or a family emergency. When he stepped up to Brian, thinking only of how much he wanted to kiss him again, he stopped cold. There was something wrong in his eyes. Distant, chilling. His breath had caught in his throat, and Brian had gripped his arm—so tight he’d seen purple-yellow bruises there the next day. ‘Eliot, you tried to kill me. But you’ll be—useful. I think everything’s more fun when you do it with a friend. You were friends with Quentin. Best friends. Now you can be mine.

    Summary

    The Monster may have been something more powerful than any god, but its body drops like a human’s, hitting the floor with a heavy finality. A golden mist rises from it - and then implodes, like a miniature dying star. Quentin can only watch in shock as Ora darts forward, checking the body - and when her wide, disbelieving eyes meet his, Quentin grits his teeth and whirls to face the man who killed the Monster.

    "What the fuck, Eliot?"

    Summary

    The Monster moves a little slower, and two lost birds get the time to read six short stories about (the other kind of) magic. In other words: "Brian" and "Nigel" fall in love. (And they're the same fucking people they always fucking are.)
