Now I'm - JessJesstheBest - In Other Lands - Sarah Rees Brennan [Archive of Our Own]
Elliot had meant it when he’d left his old world behind. When he’d spray painted his name on his childhood home and turned his back on the boring, human world he’d been raised in. He was completely committed to the Borderlands: the land of elven best friends and harpy boyfriends and war and treaties and making friends with mermaids.
This land was his home.
He didn’t regret it: there was nothing left for him in the Otherlands.
.... he just needed a couple things.

Or Elliot makes a trip to the Otherlands and brings a surprise back for Luke's birthday.
Well... a couple surprises.

A Question of Oaths - yunitsa - In Other Lands | The Turn of the Story - Sarah Rees Brennan [Archive of Our Own]
"Look," Elliot said, "I've checked - as best as I can when the nearest library is two hundred miles away - and I don't think any of this is actually legally binding? So just kneel, say the things, and we can all be on our way."

Edwin says a nonsense sound.

“I know,” Elliot says. “You are a baby.”

Elliot meets someone new who is a poor communicator and has subpar hygiene.

The Spy Who Never Grew Up - Uncanny Magazine
There is a magic shore where children used to beach their coracles every night.

The children have stopped coming now, and their little boats are tipped over on the sides, like the abandoned shells of nuts eaten long ago. The dark sea rushes up to the pale beach and just touches the crafts, making them rattle together with a sound like bones.

You and I cannot reach that shore again. We’ve forgotten everything. Even the sound of the waves and the mermaids singing.

But the men in her Majesty’s Secret Service can go anywhere.

In Other Hands - Linsky - In Other Lands - Sarah Rees Brennan [Archive of Our Own]
“Missing your boy, Little Red?” Rachel Sunborn asked.

“No,” Elliot said. He was not. He was independent and self-assured and didn’t care if all his friends were off at a tournament without him, throwing things at people for a week for absolutely no good reason and probably getting themselves killed.


Or: Five times someone suggested Elliot or Luke sleep with someone else, and one time they didn’t need to.

Chip Off the Old Block - petrichoral - The Turn of the Story - Sarah Rees Brennan [Archive of Our Own]
Elliot thought he was prepared for elven culture. He finds he is really not prepared for Serene’s parents.

“I am Fire-Red-Hair-Blows-in-the-Wind,” the elf man said, leading them up a grassy path. Up ahead, there was a wooden mansion that seemed to have grown organically between three massive oaks. “Please call me Fire. Although I went by ‘Fred’ for a while when I was travelling among the humans; do use that if it makes you more comfortable.”

The Turn Of The Story masterpost
‘Elliot Schafer has been carried off to a magical land and called to fight… but he has no intention of doing so. He is a little disappointed by the facilities on the Border, but he gets to meet Serene-Heart-In-The-Chaos-Of-Battle, an elf warrior, and Luke Sunborn, an annoyingly brave human warrior native to the magical land he’s crossed into. There are also mermaids, unicorns and assorted battles and political issues, with Elliot alternatively using diplomacy and saying the completely wrong thing.’

What I Did At Border Camp - petrichoral - The Turn of the Story [Archive of Our Own]
A rewrite of Part I from Luke's PoV, with bonus Luke and Serene scenes. Most dialogue taken directly from canon.

Elliot was without doubt the most irritating, spiteful and neurotic council cadet that Luke had ever encountered. Luke also suspected that Elliot was the type of clever which made Luke look like a particularly bright cabbage, and he didn’t like that either. But Elliot, for some weird reasons of his own, was helping Serene. And Serene liked him.

Turn of the Story: Chaste and Modest and Sweet-Natured by emilyenrose (Luke & Serene)
(2200 words, teen) Serene is intelligent in a different way to Elliot; she hears what Luke's not saying when he protests that he doesn't want a girlfriend. This is a pretty delightful picture of their excellent friendship, with Serene in all of her casual misandry and belated attempts at cultural sensitivity, and then it just touches on the beautiful/painful feelingsy stuff that canon's been setting up. Damn, I wish this was a huge and vibrant fandom, it would be great.
