    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.)

    Summary

    “If you’d like to review the full terms and conditions of your deal, you can have as much time as you need to read--”

    Eliot shook his head, still not quite used to the way his hair curled below his chin, now, since he hadn’t been around to keep it properly groomed for the last-- however long it had been. God, he hadn’t even bothered to ask.

    “You get my deep, dark, never-told secret, and I get the opportunity to try and Orpheus-and-Eurydice Q the fuck out of this place,” he said, cutting through Penny’s bureaucratic power-trip. “I got it the first twelve times.”

    “I would strongly advise--”

    “I’m ready.”

    The corners of Penny’s mouth went up, but it would have been a stretch to call the expression a smile. “No, you’re really not."

     

    The Monster's been defeated, Quentin is dead, and Eliot has a quest of his own--if he can trust himself to complete it. An Orpheus and Eurydice remix.

    Summary

    “Eliot, Eliot, I have so much to tell you,” Fen said. She pulled back and smiled at him. God, he had missed her. He hadn’t realized how much. “Josh told me about an Earth tradition called ‘divorce’, and I divorced you while you were away.”

    “Uh, that’s … good,” Eliot said. He had taken off his wedding ring years ago, when he and Quentin got together again, but this was still, somehow, a surprise.
