    Summary

    "... one moment, several things are possible, the next moment only one happens, and the rest don't exist. Except that other worlds have sprung into being, on which they did happen." - Lord Asriel, The Golden Compass

    In which a Timeline 40 with daemons splits three ways as the events of season 4 come to a close, where the ripple effects of 4.11's timeshare spell create a spinoff from season 1 onward, and where in front of the Seam, Quentin Coldwater's life takes two different turns.

    But even when that turn leads to death, the story isn't over yet.

    (Basically, daemons + timeline shenanigans + multiple fix-it options.)

    Summary

    When up-and-coming playwright Quentin Coldwater lands the Brakebills Theatre Co. spring residency program, he's pretty sure life's as good as it's ever gonna get. After all, Brakebills introduced him to the magic of the theatre in the first place, and now he's got the chance to work with them––and their very handsome, very helpful associate director Eliot Waugh.

    But it's one thing to open a door and another thing entirely to follow where it leads.

    Summary

    … is requested at the celebration of the legal solemnization of the ecstatic conjugal bliss between Formerly High King Now Courtesy-Title-Only King Eliot and King Quentin-- Actually just Quentin is-- No. You’re a King. King Quentin. Italicize that. Conjugal, too. Anyway, blah blah blah. Time date place. Her serene and stabby majesty High King Fen will serenely stab you if you decline to attend and/or bring off-registry gifts--

    Wait. Hold on a sec. Lemme see that . . . oh. El, he’s. Christ. He’s transcribing this word for word. Like, every word-- Of course he is-- Tick. TICK! Jesus, how is he still writing? Also, how is his calligraphy that good, seriously?

    You’ve been on Earth too long, baby. Well, let’s just lean in, shall we? Love Fillorian style. We’re getting fucking married. You’re invited. Bunny us your regrets only.

    And you will regret it. Italicize the will. All caps. And a very tasteful sketch of my hand up King Quentin’s--

     

     

    Eliot and Quentin are getting married. A story in three acts, as told by three of the somewhat less dearly beloved, gathered here today.

    (Or: the best thing about true love? It doesn’t need to make sense to anyone except the ones in it.)
