    Summary

    “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?”

    OR

    What comes after.

    Summary

    My sister says, It takes a long time to really feel like someone’s gone. I think that’s where the idea of ghosts comes from — this thing that’s there, even though it’s not really there.

    But you were always there even when you weren’t there. If the house of my heart is haunted now, it’s because you lived there, too.

    (Or: Julia, grieving.)

    Summary

    He’d thought that his feelings for Quentin would diminish. A longer half life than normal, but fading nonetheless. But he’d had to actively push Quentin from his mind, working at losing him piece by piece (—two rivers, a continent— he thinks), but it was work, an active extrication, dulled by alcohol and drugs and sun-soaked, over-waxed men. It had taken time and the death of brain cells, his sobriety and losing the life he’d tried to build—

    —but Eliot is sure, as soon as Quentin walks into his patisserie, that all of that resistance, the repeated acts of forgetting, was for nothing. Eliot thinks, gripping the edge of the counter as he stares— God, he’s staring— that Quentin in his twenties was surely beautiful, but the man in front of him is something else entirely. Softer, somehow, deep laugh lines at the corners of his eyes, his hair short now— and somehow, that’s worse than the loose bun he used to wear because it’s wholly different, betraying all the time lost between them. His dimples crease as he catches Eliot’s gaze, and he pushes his glasses up the slope of his nose. He’s—God, it’s so corny, and Eliot is so fucked—Q is artistry, perfect form, Eliot’s long-buried wanting made manifest.

    Summary

    Eliot’s face instantly brightens and he says, “Oh my god, multiple orgasms, we have to—”

    At the same moment Margo says, “Right, priorities, I have to fuck someone with your enormous cock.”

    ---

    One unremarkable day Margo and Eliot wake up in each other's bodies—it all spins out of control from there.

    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

    It is stupid and dangerous, and yeah it is, but to Quentin, it is worth it. It is worth everything to get Eliot back. Worth his life, worth magic, all of it. But, it doesn't work. He doesn't even know what happened to Eliot, if the Monster is still there or if Eliot was even okay.

     
    You don't deserve to know.

     

    He tells himself.

     

    It's your fault, it's your fault, it's your fault.

     
    He knows this, they all know this. So Quentin disappears.

    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

    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 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

    When Quentin is told Julia wasn't admitted to Brakebills, he realizes he has a drastic decision in front of him. If he tells Julia about magic, he'll have his mind wiped as well as hers. But he can't just leave her behind, either. He can't lose his best friend, and he can't let her life a life with her magical potential stolen away from her.

     
    So he makes a third choice.

    Summary

    "So, um, what are you stealing me for?" he asked, letting Eliot go up the stairs first.

    "Margo and I are planning for Encanto Oculto and need some of your input. If you're still interested in going."

    "Okay. Um, I am still. Interested."

    Summary

    It’s Elliot's impassioned plea before the Grecian pantheon of gods that is the straw that breaks the camel's back.

    Margo had managed to get the questers an audience with the pantheon, through methods which she had refused to disclose. Anytime someone, even Eliot, would ask how on earth she had done it, her only answer was a raised eyebrow and a quip that someone had needed to grow a pussy around there and do something to get their baby Q back.

    Standing before the pantheon, everyone was more than a little worried about how this would all turn out - given their track record with gods and all - but it was for Quentin. They all owed it to him to at the very least try. And so they swallowed their fear, pushed it to the back of their mind, or stuffed it down and turned it into fire because if there was one thing the questers were entirely sure of - this was not going to be easy. Nothing had ever been easy for them and there was no reason to expect, at all, that this long shot of an opportunity would be any different.

    Summary

    “Quentin’s gone. He died saving me,” Eliot told her. "A world without Quentin is not a world I want to live in,” Eliot said firmly. His heart had broken the moment he had heard that Quentin had died while throwing the monster into the Seam in the Mirror World.

    “You’ve come to see if I can change time for you,” Jane said with certainty in her voice.

    “Can you?” He asked her.

    “The watch I’ve used before would reset the entire timeloop, back to the very start, before you all came to Fillory and confronted the beast. Once there, in the next timeline you would not remember this timeline at all."

    “There must be a way to send my memories to the next loop,” Eliot said desperately. “Please, I need to fix this. I need Q.” he confessed. It was the first time he had said that aloud since returning to his own body.

    “Very well, then. Since you are so sure, I will help you." Jane said.

    Summary

    So... what if Quentin didn't die? What if that mirror never broke and he didn't have to cast? What if, instead of taking their sweet time tossing those flasks in, Penny and Alice and Q got it done? What would've happened then?

    That's right, friends, foes, and comrades, it's the fix-it fic that is approximately a full year late and that absolutely nobody asked for. There will be angst! There will be near death experiences! Eventually, there will be love! Strap on your seatbelts, everyone, it's about to get fun. This is absolutely, 100% canon-divergent for anything after the season 4 finale, just to clarify.
