    Summary

    In a world where only Magicians present with sexual designations, Alphas Margo Hanson and Eliot Waugh have two main rules: no omegas and no undesignated first years.
    Obviously, they did had a third rule. But it didn't need reiterating, Margo and Eliot came first. They were a unit.
    They keep their habit of seducing first year Brakebills boys to presented Betas and Alphas and outside of their own dynamic the duo don't really have friends.
    When first-year Quentin Coldwater shows up all doe-eyed, Eliot is surprised when he worms his way under his skin and Margo can barely admit that she can't get him out of her head. Quentin is mostly oblivious as usual.

    What happens when Margo and Eliot get to know Quentin while waiting for him to present?
    The duo wasn't looking for a regular, let alone a committed third, at least as far as Margo knew.
    What happens when Quentin finally presents? Far later than most magical adepts, in the middle of the cottage sitting room?

    Summary

    “Okay, someone tell me right the fuck now what is going on.” He whirls on Margo and Julia, nearly stumbling again over unfamiliar feet in converse sneakers. “Why am I passed out on the couch? Wearing a reject from Hot Topic’s t-shirt wall, with hair that clearly hasn’t seen conditioner—or even a fucking shower—in far too long? And if I’m in Quentin’s body, then—where the fuck is he?”

    Margo sighs, taking his arm and leading him back to the couch. Julia sits in a yellow chair next to him, across from the couch where he—his body—is laying.

    “It’s a body swap spell,” Margo says bluntly. “Quinn brought us this book, and Q found the spell in it, Julia figured out how to modify it, and now you’re here, in Q’s body, and he’s—” She cuts off, glancing over at Eliot’s body.

    Eliot follows her gaze, and his entire body tensing. “He’s where, Margo?”

    “We’re pretty sure he’s wherever you were,” Julia says, glancing down at the-Eliot-that-isn’t.

     
    What if, while Eliot was possessed by the monster, the gang found a body swap spell? And then used it?

    Summary

    Sitting up and looking around, Margo was shocked to find herself in the last place she thought she’d be. “We’re back at fucking Brakebills?! Christ on a cracker what the fuck is going on.”

    Alice put her head between her knees as she sat up. There was a headache coming on from this, she just knew it.

    “Well, it looks like we’re back on earth.”

    “No shit, Sherlock.”

    “Quiet Margo, please. I can literally feel my brain throbbing. And I don’t know why we’re here. It could be anything. New Fillory itself kicked us out, one of the Fillorians we let out zapped us here, literally any other thing since our lives are so weird.

    Summary

    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.

    OR

    The one where Quentin and Eliot are exes who had an intense D/s relationship in undergrad.

    Summary

    The first morning after a heat is always a strange one. It takes time to reach full wakefulness, sleep still heavy like a thick, syrupy blanket. Muscles feel pleasantly sore, and every sense is heightened: the sheets feel impossibly soft; the sounds of the house coming alive are comforting in their familiarity; the scent of a satisfied omega is heady and wonderful. Eliot Waugh opens his eyes with a smile already playing about his lips, and stretches languidly, disturbing the arm that's resting over his waist. The wind is still howling outside of the windows, Brakebills' scheduled White Christmas still well underway, but it's warm in his bedroom, in his nest. It always is, but especially after a heat. Warm, and cosy, and safe. Eliot feels so good.


    Eliot has a plan for his life, and he's going to make it happen, come hell or high water. First, he just needs to get Quentin on board...

    Then he needs to figure out how to handle the timeline getting moved up.

    Summary

    Quentin wants to sink through the floor. He can feel his neck and his cheeks flare hot, and his eyes skitter away from Eliot’s perceptive gaze. But then Eliot is turning back to the door, and he’s opening it and basically manhandling him through it, which — okay. Apparently is a thing for him as well.

    He has A Thing for tall guys named Eliot who smirks at him and looks at him and manhandles him through doors.

    Okay.

    Okay, he can deal with this.

    He still doesn’t know what he’s doing here, but he can deal with this.

    Because it turns out that tall guys named Eliot are the least of his problems.

    or;

    The one in which Magicians find their Soulmates through different means, and nobody seems to have informed Quentin of this.

    Summary

    Quentin, Alice and Penny travel to the Mirror World to toss the bottles in the seam. Quentin thinks about doing a minor mending on the mirror after Everette shatters it, but instead ambient magic runs out before he can think of what else to do, and something else entirely happens...

    Penny doesn't decide Julia's fate, she does...

    And The Monster has his own plans...

    (In which I re-write the Season 4 ending and get to imagine more moments with all these amazing characters)

    Summary

    Quentin feels like he’s in mourning, in his own widower’s blacks somewhere deep underground. It hurts with every fibre in his being, but he musters up whatever inadequate bravery he still has inside him that didn't get left with the people he loves, and looks up at the screen.

    And then Eliot adjusts his grip on the peach, staring into the fire with an identical flame in his eyes. “No,” he says instead, “fuck this.”

    Quentin drops the mug, Eliot takes a bite of the peach, and the earth shakes beneath their feet.

    or, Julia and Eliot refuse to let this be the end.

    Summary

    A million beautiful gold lights burst from the air, shooting through everything in the room. Quentin ran, but he wasn't fast enough. Time slowed down when she screamed, and he turned to look at her, his eyes wide in shock as those little lights shot through him. Black wisp exploded from inside his body high in the air, his outstretched arm the only thing she could see until the smoke and gold hid that away from her too.
    And she fell apart.

    Summary

    Post S5E13 (Fillory and Further)

    Finding a way to Fillory seems impossible. But the impossible is what magicians do.

    Charlton tries to find himself and what this new life on Earth means, and how he fits into it. He finally looks and feels like himself, but he doesn’t know what his place in this world is.

    The isolation of Eliot not being with the rest of his friends is crushing, but sometimes the happy ending comes after the curtain closes. And sometimes, it means having some time to find oneself, to decide who you want to be, rather than who you think you should be.

    The key to finding the new Fillory is right in front of them, if they can find a way to use it before it’s too late. A journey to get to Fillory is exactly what Charlton and Eliot need, but it will require all the help their friends can give to get there, and they’ll need each other.

    Eliot Waugh has everything he could ever want. He's an up-and-coming fashion designer on the edge of fame, with his own brand and an amazing crew, a NYC apartment, his face on magazine covers, the best friend and mentor anyone could ever ask for - and a boyfriend that's too perfect for words. But the best part? No one knows where he came from, or who he was before. His past has been buried for seven long years, and Eliot planned on keeping it that way.

    Until his boyfriend proposed, and it ended up in every gossip column in New York City.

    To keep his perfect life just the way he likes it, Eliot has to return to the one place he never wanted to see again, and take care of some long overdue, unfinished business. His still legal marriage to his high school sweetheart, Quentin Coldwater.
