    Summary

    Everything hurt. Everything ached. He just wanted to curl up in a ball in some dark corner of a room somewhere and not leave, forever. He had saved Eliot, his job was done. He even survived the journey to the Seam. He hadn’t been completely unharmed, but no one needed to know about the series of burns currently eating away at one side of his body. Neither Alice nor 23 had seemed to notice, not that any of them seemed to notice much about him these days. They had gone back through the portal mere minutes ago and gone their separate ways.

    Summary

    Yep. Another fluffy angst with Hanahaki in the background, sad Q and emotionally constipated El. This is an AU where there was no monster in the castle and they stopped Alice from destroying the keys. It also doesn't matter.
    Summary:
    Quentin needed to rethink his life choices and this once choose himself. Before it was too late and he drowned in depression and rose petals. El made his choice. It was a fool's hope to stay and think he would change his mind. Q needed to get over this love for his own sake.

    Summary

    Eliot doesn't let boys linger in his mind. They come and go with each new lay, few of which he ever goes back to. But Quentin fucking Coldwater seemed to make it his subconscious mission to barrel through all the walls Eliot ever put up in the first place. Feelings are hard. Caring is hard. And Eliot's attempts to care less only leads to more emotions than he was ever willing or ready to deal with. And Quentin? Well, he learns just how much he has Eliot wrapped around his finger.

    Summary

    Eliot finds Q's journal full of his depressive feelings. Reading how much he hurt him made him hate himself even more. Q was gone and Eliot didn't get a chance to be brave and fix his mistakes. He was useless.
    Good thing that there were others who loved Q too. People like Julia who knew how it felt to be full of godly power. If she could get that back she could drag her best friend out of the afterlife.
    ----
    Another emotional story of El getting his Q back because I already read them all and need more. Please enjoy this cliché story full of tears and feelings and other mushy stuff.

    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

    Something about the nearest building to jump off? / The old post office on 58th.
     
    How do you even know that? / Abandoned building, easy roof access, and great views. It was the number one midtown spot when I was into that kind of thing as a possibility.

    Inspired by s03e02: Heroes and Morons – four times Quentin chooses to live, and so lives, and is so loved.

    Summary

    Eliot Waugh was not always the spectacular second year student Quentin had the good fortune to meet on his first day at Brakebills. “Self-made” for better or worse, fits Eliot to the T, and the beginning of everything he was and became, started in Indiana.

    It started with the new girl.

    Summary

    Are they forever going to be crashing through each other’s lives like this? They can’t quite seem to converge without a stomach-swerving sort of chaos—not in this world, in this timeline. Certainly not intentionally and mutually, or without shame, regret and shouldn’t haves. So many mistakes that surely didn’t add up to anything worth learning from. Because of course he shouldn’t have slept with Eliot and he shouldn’t look at him either. Not the way he wants to. The way he knows he always has, even when Alice was right there, sharp-eyed and silent, watching Quentin want things he couldn’t have. 

    Quentin never has been very good at stopping himself from wanting.

    Or: Quentin and Eliot have a lot to work out before they can find their way back to one another. And then a whole lot more after that.

    Summary

    Quentin is a hero. Quentin is Eliot's hero as much as Eliot is Quentin's hero.
    "It amazed him that he had been able to call life what was not them.
    Language plays these tricks: sometimes it finds alternative words, doped up words, megalomaniac words. To call life what was not them was a lying hyperbole, a way that words have of hiding what they should show."

    Quentin returns to New York, Brakebills, and his old friends after rebirth and a few years away, but coming home is not as simple as returning to a location. It takes time to heal, and time to let himself open up again, but home isn't as lost as he once believed it to be. He just needs to find it in himself to trust that.
