    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

    “Took you long enough—” the Adonis in a button-down says, his words dying in his throat as he locks eyes with Quentin. His shirt is dark green with gold paisley swirling around it, bringing out the tiny gold flecks in his hazel eyes. The first few buttons are undone, giving Quentin a peek of sharp collarbones (god he wants to lick them) and a tease of chest hair that Quentin is already imagining running his fingers through.

    He’s a head taller than Quentin, the perfect height for Quentin to nestle right into his graceful neck, drag his tongue over his pulse point and bite and nibble up to his strong jaw. A smattering of stubble over his face gives him a roguish air, and Quentin wonders what it would feel like against his lips.

    “S—Sorry,” Quentin says, clutching at the strap of his messenger bag. Okay, so he’s gorgeous, so what, get your shit together. You’re here to fuck his—FIX, fix his water heater, god.

    Summary

    When Quentin took over the Great Banquet Hall for his tournament and told Eliot to take dinner in his receiving room, and do all his receiving elsewhere, maybe outside… he wasn't expecting Eliot to listen. And completely destroy Quentin's calm in the process.

    (Set in--and then diverts from--chapter 3 of "The Magician King")

    Summary

    OR

    Missing scenes from Season 1 of The Magicians. Quentin has harbored feelings for Eliot for a while and the threesome has brought them to light.

    Summary

    Life is messy and hard and terrible. It builds you up, and tears you apart. Life at the mosaic was no different.

    Yet still, at the end of every fight they fell back together and loved through it all.

    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 is a smol, adorable puppy of a man, and Eliot is smitten. Margo facilitates Eliot getting what he wants. Quentin doesn't entirely know what to do with himself.

    In this s1 AU, there is no Brakebills South Qualice romance, nothing is dangerous or sad, and Eliot and Margo take Quentin on vacation to Encanto Oculto with them. Also, as much as Margo enjoys the whole threesome angle with Quentin and Eliot, she's got her eye on a high-strung supernerd of her own... Alice Quinn.

    Please be advised that this has somehow become a fake boyfriends story. I'm sorry/You're welcome.

    Summary

    What comprises the beauty of all life? Why is Q so convinced he and El are great together? How exactly did Arielle get involved?

    Catching feelings for your best friend is complicated.

    In which Quentin and Eliot fumble toward ecstasy with a few minor setbacks along the way and end up raising a family together.

    This belongs to the same verse (The Peaches Verse) as "It's Never Over" and is the headcanon from which that novel was written, but they're entirely independent.

    Summary

    Seducing adorably clueless straight boys and sleeping with friends’ boyfriends were hardly par from the course for him, but if Eliot had realized that all those other (alas, frustratingly cockblocked) attempts to lure the sweetly ridiculous Quentin Coldwater onto his eager disco stick would culminate in nothing more than that single disastrous night, well, he definitely would have taken steps to ensure he remembered it. Oh, but now how the world was changing.

    Mosaic timeline pointless smut with a dash of feelings, because I wanted to contribute something happy to the fandom this week.

    Summary

    Nothing was different though, was it? Here at Brakebills Quentin was still forced to deal with the issues that plagued his previous life; there would be no escapism for him here.

    In which Quentin is thrown into a timeline he isn't sure he can escape from - or if he wants to.

    Summary

    “I don’t think it’s us,” Alice says, gaze barely glancing away from the books stacked in front of her. Her pencil taps along the edges of her paper, eraser dancing along the outline of one of the spells she’s studying.

    Quentins brow furrows as he lets his eyes trail from the pencil, up her arm, to land on the curtain of hair she’s using to hide her face from him. “What isn’t us?” He asks. It’s the first thing she’s said in hours, since Eliot and Margo left the library to go do something less boring. Whatever that means.

    “Us.” She answers after a moments silence, before looking up and setting the pencil down. “I think Mayakovsky was wrong.”

    “About … Us? How?”

    “I don’t think we’re in love.”

    Summary

    S’io credesse che mia risposta fosse
    A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
    Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
    Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
    Non torno vivo alcun, s’i’odo il vero,
    Senza tema d’infamia ti rispondo.

    (If I believed my answer was
    to a person who'd ever return to the world,
    this flame would keep still without moving any further.
    But since from those undergrounds
    no one has ever come back alive, if what I hear is true,
    I answer you without fear of infamy.)
