Quentin shook out the tension in his hands. He didn’t understand why it wasn’t getting any easier. For days on end he’d been trying to perfect the illumination spell the rest of his fellow First Years had nailed in a matter of hours. But no matter how he tried, Quentin couldn’t seem to make anything more than a spark.
He didn’t know what was worse: that his discipline was apparently shit at magic, or that he’d been placed in the Physical Kids’ Cottage with his ex-whatever-the-hell-they’d-been-in-undergrad because the administration didn’t know what else to do with him. He couldn’t do shit about the latter, but he figured he could at least try and get the basics of magic down before Dean Fogg realized what a grave mistake he’d made in allowing Quentin into Brakebills to begin with.
The one where Quentin and Eliot are exes who had an intense D/s relationship in undergrad.

“I found something,” Quentin said. “In Eliot’s room.”
Across the table, Julia’s face shifted in the gloom. They hadn’t bothered with a warming enchantment tonight, not a single orb of magic light bobbing overhead. There in the dark with their jackets pulled on. Like they were back in undergrad, just the two of them. Like they didn’t have magic at all.
In spite of the chill, a heat had found him. Sweeping over the apples of Quentin’s cheeks in brilliant scarlet whorls. He watched as Julia pinched her brows together, eying him from where she sat.
“Okay,” she said, dragging the word out long. “You wanna elaborate on that, Q?”
What comes after.
