    Summary

    "If I were to speculate, I would suspect that it is not only the body which is subject to decay. Whatever transpires beyond the point you crossed, it likely necessitates a kind of spiritual apoptosis—the parts of you equipped for this world wither or die off to prepare you fully for the next. Your friends restored your body—that’s the easy part. The regrowth of pieces which were in the process of accepting their own obliteration—that will take time. Or so I should think.”

    “Oh,” Quentin said. “But you think—you think they can grow back?”

    (Or: in which Julia has an idea, Quentin attempts to recuperate, and the path back to the self is rarely so linear as we would prefer.)

    Summary

    “Hey, Eddie.” He swallows, all of the saliva in his mouth has gone tacky with sudden anxiety. He doesn’t know if he’s talking more to Eddie or himself when he continues. “Don’t freak out.”

    “Richie?”

    “You should come stay with me.” There, it’s out there. He feels better for all of half a second before he realizes he was kind of vague and it kind of sounds like he’s inviting Eddie to move in with him. “I mean, just until your train situation is better.”

    “Um,” Eddie says.

    Summary

    The problem with getting together two weeks before finals is that you barely have the chance to enjoy your new relationship before the semester is over.

    Set the summer between Quentin's first and second year at Brakebills, this is a story about discovering how to make space in your life for someone else. Told over the course of three months, our boys navigate distance, Ted's Illness, Eliot's thesis, and their own demons as they learn what it means to truly be together and apart.

    Summary

    As he curls into the space of Eliot’s body now and stutters something against his lips, Quentin realises, for the first time, that sacrificing himself to save Eliot wouldn’t have been a good thing. It wouldn’t have been better for Eliot. It wouldn’t have made Quentin into the hero he always wanted to be. It would have just been –– over.

    And there’s a lot here for him, still, in this world.

    ––––––––––––––––––––

    A finale-inspired fix-it fic, where everything is still hard, but will be okay in the end. There's also wine. And some very well-earned kisses.

    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 as Quentin's about to find out, it's one thing to open a door and another thing entirely to follow where it leads.

    Summary

    When Alice saw the figure standing there, her first, improbable thought, was Eliot. But, no-- that wasn’t-- it was a young woman. Younger than Alice, even, probably. She had on leather boots that went up to her thighs over leather leggings, and a long, drapey-- Renaissance Fair-style (Fillorian, she hissed inside, you know it’s Fillorian) blouse. Her thick black hair was pushed back over one shoulder and her eyes--

    “Holy shit,” the girl-- woman-- said under her breath, her mouth curling into an uncanny almost-grin, as Alice stared like an idiot.

    “Alice Quinn,” she said suddenly, straightening up to her full height-- taller than Alice. “I’m Quentin Coldwater’s daughter from the future,” she said, like she’d rehearsed it-- that was the easier part for Alice to focus on, the delivery. “And I need you to help me save my family.”

     

    Or: Alice saves Queliot, and saves the world. And just maybe figures out who she's always been.

    Summary

    On the tablet Eliot saw a webpage from the New York Daily News, and at the top was a picture of an old woman, holding her own death certificate and smiling. The headline said, "DEAD RISE AGAIN IN QUEENS, BROOKLYN."

    Margo said, "You bitches better sober up, because this is a massive goddamn problem, and it just might get us our friend back."
     

    Even in the middle of tragedy, sometimes you can have a cosmically lucky accident.

    Summary

    “You don’t have to apologize. I just wanted you to know,” Eliot says softly, once Quentin can breathe again, once he’s stopped leaking all over everything, himself and the grass and Eliot. “You deserve to know you’re loved.”

    “I don’t think– I can’t be anyone’s boyfriend right now, Eliot,” and somehow it hurts more to say it now than it had to say it to Alice. But Eliot just smiles, sad but real, and reaches out to smooth Quentin’s hair off his face. It’s too short to hook behind his ear, but Eliot keeps petting him anyway. It feels nice. Grounding.

    The Monster is gone, but that doesn't mean everything's okay. It's not. But maybe Quentin and Eliot can learn to be.

    Summary

    He stands up on the dock, steadying himself with a hand on Richie’s shoulder and keeping his eyes on the glint that must be Richie’s glasses at the bottom of the pond. Doing this, he can't watch the earth-stilling phenomenon of Richie's shoulder blades pressing against each other. Eddie doesn’t like the idea that he’s getting weird with Richie, so he's been trying to touch him casually now and then—although maybe the fact that he’s doing it on purpose means that battle’s long lost.

    “If I drown I’ll haunt you till you drop,” Eddie says, and jumps into the water.

    Summary

    "No, I would've remembered this," Richie says, folding his hand around the un-bandaged parts of Eddie's hand. The gold ring glints on his pinky.

    Eddie explains how he stabbed himself and Richie nearly dies. His laughter sounds like someone peeling out on fresh blacktop.

    "Okay, yeah, hyuck it up, you goofy bitch," Eddie says.

    "How many times is that? Four? The universe wants you to be penetrated, Eds," Richie says. "It cannot get enough of you."

    Eddie Kaspbrak and Richie Tozier run into each other after leaving Derry and start to remember.

    "Eddie Spaghetti!”

    Eddie just stands there, open mouthed. He’s sure he doesn’t know this person, and he’s sure that there’s no one who’s ever called him Eddie Spaghetti. He stares at the guy, about his age, tall and gangly, with longish curly black hair, huge glasses, and a crooked smile. “I’m sorry, I don’t…”

    “I’m Richie. Richie Tozier. We used to go to middle school together, didn't we? About a million years ago?”
