    Summary

    "You need to go off the garden path." - Jane Chatwin

    "The bridge between your past self and your present self is delicate. If you break it…" - Alice Quinn

    After forty timeloops, one little shift caused by Quentin's timeshare spell was enough to create a splinter timeline - Timeline 41. In Timeline 41, "Mike" is around for longer, but Eliot, Margo, and Quentin get closer in the end. So do Alice and Penny. Friendships take unexpected turns, and they left the garden path behind long ago. But all roads lead, in the end, to Fillory.

    Part of a series but can be mostly read as a standalone.

    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

    Есть люди, с которыми ты общаешься, дружишь или встречаешься, потому что тебе с ними интересно. Потому что они сложные, умные, красивые, и вам нравится проводить время вместе. А есть люди, с которыми ты общаешься, потому что твое сердце уже принадлежит им. Как будто оно бьется не в твоей, а в их груди, и только с ними ты чувствуешь себя дома. Целым.

    Summary

    Quentin's pretty sure that the alley he just turned down for his usual shortcut to his favorite froyo place doesn't open up onto a field. It should open up onto Thirty-First, as a matter of fact, but.

    There's far too much sunlight on his face, too little noise, and the scent of people pressing in from every direction has all but vanished. The only traces of the scent of the city, of all the betas and alphas and omegas that he constantly brushes against, are lingering on his coat. Even those are quickly dissipating in the breeze that ruffles his hair, though, and Quentin takes another few steps forward, looking around in awe. He's never seen a place like this before, and the part of him that still clings to the magic of Fillory can't help but wonder if he found his own clock door.

    The more practical side of him points out that it's more likely he's finally just lost it, in the face of finding his interviewer dead.

    Summary

    “Hey, ignore Eliot,” says Quentin. “He’s… you know, just being Eliot.”

    Quentin POV of "if being him is who you are / say it loud say you know you are", and then some. Would recommend reading 'part 1' first!

    In a land of myth, and a time of magic… the destiny of a great kingdom rests on the shoulders of a young boy. His name… Quentin.

    Summary

    Eliot Waugh is an actor on the brink of the biggest break of his career. Quentin Coldwater is a former child star turned aspiring screenwriter who's paying his dues as a glorified PA. Three years of near-constant contact has turned their codependent working relationship into a close, comfortable bond that one refuses to examine too closely and the other is reluctant to risk.

    When the studio behind Eliot's prospective new project expresses their doubts about his party boy public image, his reps brainstorm a way to make him more marketable: raffling off a night on the town on Eliot's arm. The winner is a wholesome farm boy from Brakebills, Texas, who makes such an impression that Eliot agrees to take a vacation from the spotlight to spend some time in Mike's tiny hometown. But somewhere between bar bathrooms and bad motels, Eliot might be brave enough to act on what he really wants… and Quentin might just manage to write his way to a happy ending.

    Loosely based, with liberal creative license, on Win a Date with Tad Hamilton.

    Summary

    25m Seeking Roommate

    Uhm, hi. My name is Quentin. I really need a roommate. Like ASAP. My best friend moved out, she’s going to grad school in Los Angeles. How freaking cool is that? Fuck. Sorry. I’m sure you don’t care. Oh wait. Can you even swear on Craigslist? Is that against the rules or whatever? Anyway, like I said, I desperately need a roommate. I live in a 2 bedroom apartment in Harlem. Your rent would be 900 a month and we’d split the utilities.

    Here’s my phone number if you’re interested or want a tour or whatever: (XXX) XXX - XXXX

    (pls don’t be creepy)

    Edited on May 2nd, 9:32 AM: (Apparently this needs to be said, but being creepy includes sending me dick pics at 2am. Yes, I’m calling you out Dave. You woke up my dog. Fuck you. Oh wait, to everyone else, I forgot to mention I have a pup in my original post? So uh if you’re allergic, you probably won’t wanna live with me. His name is Teddy though and he's very cute!)

    Summary

    Eliot Waugh is the Prince of Brakebills University, living without a care in the world. That is, until his platonic soulmate finds love, thanks to his definitely-not-unintentional matchmaking. It was a big change, but all’s well that ends well and he’s happy for Margo and Julia. You know. Mostly.

    But no one likes a renowned hedonist who focuses on his inner maudlin blah. So instead, Eliot opts to invest his energy into taking a new girl under his wing. She's dorky, intense, fresh off a year-long sojourn at Brakebills South... and in desperate need of fun.

    What a lucky young lady that Alice Quinn is.

    (Or: Unabashedly Queer “Emma,” at Brakebills.)

    Summary

    "You should have been more hospitable to strangers my dear Margo and my young Prince." As the stranger spoke she transformed into the Witch of the Darkling Woods. "For since you both laughed in my face and I see no love in your hearts except for each other there will be a curse on you and all that live in this castle." Picking up the rose, she continued, "If you both can learn to love another as you love each other and they return your love before the last petal falls the curse will be broken. If not you will both remain as you will be."

    Summary

    Quentin honestly doesn't know what he'd expected when Julia and James said that they were going to throw a graduation party.

    All of the people? Well, James is fairly popular, so the fact that the party had gotten larger than any of them had expected wasn't entirely unexpected. It had happened before. Still, it leaves Quentin feeling crowded and anxious in his own apartment, and he doesn't appreciate it.

    As he skirts the improvised dance floor in their living room, someone bumps into him, knocking him into someone else. Quentin glances up and up until he meets the other guy's gaze, his own eyes wide once he catches sight of the raised eyebrow and smirk that are waiting for him. "Oh, um. Sorry!" he says, pitching his voice just loud enough to be heard over the music and hoping his apology didn't come across as a squeak as he most-definitely-does-not bolt the rest of the way to his room.

    Eliot watches him go, and waits until he's disappeared into a room at the back of the apartment before he leans into his companion. "I want one."

    Summary

    Quentin had not questioned it, at first, when Eliot had taken to disappearing for days without notice, not to be seen anywhere around the cottage or the campus. He figured that who partied as hard as Eliot and Margo did have to deal with the occasional aftermath like any other mortal. That was until he noticed that Eliot and Margo didn't do hangovers.

    That left the mystery of where Eliot disappeared to whenever he was MIA unsolved.
