    Summary

    Before everything went to shit, if someone stuck a slice of Everything Pizza in his hands, Q’d happily claim he was getting every food group in one bite and be done with it. But a breakthrough was in there, somewhere. Eliot just had to find it. He had to. This was Quentin. They didn’t bring him back just to wallow in a tasteless hell for the rest of his life. And…shit…maybe, just fucking maybe, “being brave” could get back on the table.

    -Or-

    All of Quentin's senses go haywire when he's brought back to life. After months of getting everything down to a manageable level, Eliot decides to take big risk. He cooks his feelings on a professional level, planning a five-course meal in the hopes of doing something nice for the two of them, and to see if he and Quentin can have a second chance at another fifty years. Written for the Magicians Monthly Prompt Challenge, "Blindfold."

    Summary

    Quentin Coldwater, high-fantasy wunderkind and eternal sucker for a good hero, only needs one thing: to finish the last book of his trilogy.

    Eliot Waugh, genre-busting enfant terrible and antihero (at best) of his own not-so-thinly-veiled life story, doesn’t need anything at all.

    A middle-of-winter book tour reveals, one snow-covered city at a time, that there may be something else they both (desperately) need. If only they can let themselves have their own happy ending.

    Summary

    “Who is he?” he snarled, and the sharp pang of relief that I couldn’t stop myself from feeling at the sight of him was immediately swallowed up by fury.

     

    Because who the fuck did he think he was? What the fuck did he think this was? I crossed my arms over my chest, well aware of the bite mark just above my nipple, the bruise that had been sucked into my neck. “Who is whom?”

    Gordo wakes up to Mark at his door, but the man he'd brought home the night before has gone.

    Summary

    this is the happiest quentin coldwater has been in, well. a long ass time: he is so close to finishing his dissertation that he can imagine himself holding that phd diploma on graduation day; he's engaged to alice quinn, already a professor and on track to becoming tenured at their university; he's living in nyc - the best city in the world - and everything is great. except for the insomnia. that is maybe becoming a problem. at least until he accidentally knocks over eliot waugh - a bartender in the east village - and, again, accidentally falls asleep with him on the subway. out of mutual desperation to just get some sleep, quentin and eliot arrange time to sleep together. just sleep. and it works, at least until it becomes complicated with feelings.

    Summary

    Alice is skimming her fourth book of the day and letting her third cup of coffee grow cold when Eliot finds her.

    "I was thinking," he says, like he's picking back up in the middle of a conversation that she's pretty sure she wasn't there for the beginning of, "we should get drunk together."

    ------

    Alice and Eliot get drunk, plan Quentin's rescue, and figure out what comes next.

    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

    Once is a chance, twice is coincidence, and running into the same stranger for the third time on your way home for Christmas is…a sign. So when the nor'easter of the decade closes every airport on the east coast, Eliot and Quentin—brought together by one traveling mishap after the other—figure it’s better to make the journey with someone you barely know, than try and go it alone.

    “You still want to climb out of here?”

    “Yes,” Quentin says immediately.

    “It’s going to be hard,” Penny warns, his gaze weirdly intense and serious.

    “God, yeah, I figured it would be,” Quentin mutters, squirming out of Penny’s personal space. “Everything from pretty much every mythology ever says it’s a pain in the ass.”

    Summary

    They’re not labeling it, but Eliot buys a vest that needs to be laced up at the back, thinking Quentin can help me with this without a second thought. They’re not labeling it, but Quentin sleeps in his room sometimes even when they don’t fuck, if his brain is particularly loud or he’s feeling especially lonely. Eliot knows the schedule of Q’s father’s chemo appointments, because Quentin always comes back a bit of a mess, a little in need of giving up control of simple things like ‘where do I find food today’ or ‘what shirt should I wear’ to someone else. And maybe you could say that’s just being a good Dom, but...

    Eliot’s Dommed for boys before. He’s done it with a kind of regularity once or twice, even. It was nothing like this, groggy morning coffee cups and lunch between classes, Quentin quiet and boneless with his head in Eliot’s lap while he and Margo gossip. This was something new. Maybe it didn’t have a label, but it felt like something edging up towards– a relationship?
