    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

    Here he was, at Hogwarts. Quentin had dreamed of being a student here forever. He could feel the magic thrumming in the air, could see it in the lights twinkling in the ceiling.

    He felt a tickle on the back of his neck, and he looked to the table of green and silver ties. Quentin forced himself to not look to the ground, and his brown eyes locked with a set of hazel ones. Even at this distance, he could see the intensity within, a sparkle of excitement as they swept over him, head to foot and back up again. Quentin’s breath hitched and he wiped his suddenly damp palms on his robes.

    Hazel Eyes also had full dark hair, short, wavy and slightly mussed, with a stray curl or two falling over his forehead. Quentin took in his strong jaw, full lips, a tiny cleft in his chin, and a slightly loosened tie peeking out above the neck of his robe. He exuded the kind of effortless, lazy sexiness that Quentin knew he couldn’t embody in one finger on his best day.

    Hazel Eyes made no attempt to hide his appraisal of Quentin. A slow smile spread across his lips as he stared back at him, his look full of promise and intent that Quentin wasn’t sure he could handle. But I sure would love to try, Quentin thought.

    Summary

    Quentin fucks up a spell (Penny may or may not have also helped/hindered).

    Quentin is the reason why everything smells like the Bog of Eternal Stench and Penny can't see.

    Quentin’s run-amuck brain brings all sorts of problems to the table.

    Quentin is starting to make Penny feel funny in his chest (and his pants).

    Fuck Quentin, man.

    Summary

    It's been six months since Quentin has (quite literally) stumbled into Brakebills. Six months of pure, magical bliss. And on the day he'll (hopefully) find out his Discipline and his place at Brakebills, Quentin thinks about all the unexpected things he has found here, realising he now has something more powerful and important than magic: a new home.

    Summary

    If a casual observer were to glance at Alice Quinn and Eliot Waugh, they might be forgiven for thinking that they were diametrically opposed in every sense. One a shy, talented magician characterised by her fierce intelligence and an inviolable sense of morality, the other a careful construct of a human, elegantly coiffed and composed at all times, and having never opened a book before in his life.

    On the surface, nothing links the two, the casual observer would conclude.

    The casual observer would be wrong.

    Three things that Eliot and Alice have in common, and one thing that they share.

    Summary

    Henry is not that sentimental a man. And he has no time to grieve. Not when he knows that he’ll be doing this all over again, sooner or later. Judging by the state of this timeline and Jane’s impatience, sooner.

    After the disaster that is timeline 23, and with the knowledge that there are at least 17 more timelines to go, Henry Fogg attempts to find the miraculous combination of events that leads to the Beast's defeat in timeline 40. He starts by attempting to unlock Eliot's potential.

    A story of angst, fluff, and found families over 17 timelines.
    (Who am I kidding, it's mostly angst)

    Summary

    "Can I see, please?”

    Penny knows she means his arms, so he hesitates for a moment. But she’s so businesslike about it. This feels impersonal, safe. He holds them out to her, a grisly parody of a child asking for a hug.

    Summary

    It’s Eliot’s first year at Brakebills and he’s determined to have a good time and look good doing it. He sets his sights on a potential boytoy, and unwittingly gets caught up in the games. When Margo discovers his secret Eliot realizes that for the first time in his life he has a true confidant and friend. And she’s perfectly willing to share in the fun.

    This is a pre-canon crossover of sorts between the first book and show. It draws a lot on the book scene where Quentin discovers Eliot and another boy in a Dom/sub roleplay scene.
