    Summary

    The night the Physical Kids’ Cottage burns down, Quentin is alone in his room, sulking. He could have been at the party downstairs. He’d been invited to the party downstairs. But ever since the... incident with Eliot, things have been weird between them. Quentin hadn’t wanted to mope around the edges of the room and pine for simpler days. And so he’s alone, forced to escape through his bedroom window, as the magical flames tear the Cottage down to the studs.

    In the aftermath, Quentin, Eliot and the other Physical Kids are left to pick up the pieces, both literally and metaphorically, of what happened that night. And in Quentin’s case, of what happened months earlier, when he’d humiliated himself and lost the closeness of the most important friendship of his adult life.

    Luckily, even if things can never go back to the way they were, that doesn’t mean they can’t be fixed. And in the meantime, there’s a shortage of bedrooms on campus in the absence of the Cottage...

    Summary

    “I’m sorry you had to go through that,” Quentin says, his eyes flickering down to Eliot’s throat, to the chest hair peeking out above the top buttons he’d left undone. The boat sways gently on the river.

    “I’m not,” Eliot says, pulling himself up into a sitting position, shifting Quentin’s foot out of his lap and next to him. “I’m very happy here. Some people need their families to become who they’re supposed to be. And there’s nothing wrong with that,” he says, his gaze flickering down to Quentin’s lips and then back up to his eyes. “But there are other ways to do it.”

    “Are there?” Quentin asks, leaning forward. “Can you show me?”

    Summary

    “What are you doing here?”

    Patrick blinks beneath the toque shoved onto his head, steadily dripping melting snow from his coat onto the mat they once purchased together. “Um… it’s my weekend."

    What? David is already shaking his head, but Patrick takes a step forward, eyes wide, skin pale despite his cold-flushed cheeks.

    “I get Christmas. You get New Years. I thought..." Patrick trails off and licks his lips. Behind him, snow blows in through the still-open doorway. "I thought that's what we agreed."

    Or, the exes-stuck-in-a-cabin fic I wrote totally and completely for myself.
