Description:

Everett's sea of magic contained power of all kinds, and when he died, so did he. This included a not-insignificant amount of time magic.

And Quentin? Traces of the timeshare spell still lingered on him, and it was, after all, his spell that set off the blast.

(And what is mending anyway, but a kind of physical magic with hints of time magic and healing to it?)

The surges aren't the only side effect of the blast that accidentally returned magic to the world, and the already-unstable Timeline 40 splits along a fault line, leaving ripple effects in both the realities it creates. The only way to mend things is to work together.

Meanwhile, the timeshare spell itself created Timeline 41, where it is 2016 and Brakebills first-year Quentin Coldwater has strange dreams...

Notes:

The timeline introduced in Into the Sky is Timeline 40a; the canonish timeline introduced in Holding My Last Breath/I Stopped Into A Church is Timeline 40b.
