    Summary

    When Quentin is back on terra firma, he brings his rough liver-spotted hand (he has an old man’s hands, it’s as weird as it is nice) to the smooth stone beneath the tree, giving the edge a long, loving pet, before squeezing the corner of the more weathered stone beside it. When he finally turns around, cracking his aching back as he does, the figure has reached the clearing, and come to a dead stop.

    Quentin does the same.

     

     

    Or, Eliot makes his way back to the mosaic, and two widowers discuss grief, peace, and the fact that the beauty of all life is something that we can carry with us. Always.

    Summary

    “Would you tell me a bedtime story?” he finally asked quietly, with heavy-lidded eyes, still staring at the television.

    Eliot’s heart throbbed. Are you asking because you miss me? Eliot wanted to ask. Or just because you’re still not okay and I make you feel better?

    And also: Is this what being brave means? That I don’t ask, and I just keep opening my heart to you, because I fucked up and didn’t choose you, and she had already given you the words you needed by the time I got free of the Monster that hurt you that you still won’t talk about?

    And: Does it mean I never point out that you never chose me, either, not really? Not in the ways that mean anything?

    Summary

    Quentin writes love letters to people he doesn’t know for a little bit of cash. He’s not sure what amount of cash, if such an amount even exists, is enough to make him write a love letter to Eliot Waugh.

    Summary

    After Q dies, the gang shatters in some pretty spectacular ways. Alice leaves without a word and somehow finds herself on a fucked up road trip with the former Dean Fogg. Julia is left to clean up the pieces of the life her best friend left behind and also maybe fights a god. And Eliot gives up magic, may or may not be drinking to die, and gets adopted by a stray that follows him home.

    So it goes. Until Quentin starts popping up in reflective surfaces. Magic comes from pain, but pain comes from love. And these three? They’ve leveled up, motherfuckers.
