2,984 words | “How the fuck did I agree to this?”

“I think the better question is why didn’t we stop Eliot from knocking Stoppard out,” Julia murmurs, staring down at Stoppard's sleeping body. “That’s definitely something we could have done.”

Eliot looks over his shoulder at them, his hand slipping from the edge of the window. “Would you two stop wasting time and tell me how to work this fucking thing?” When Penny turns a glare on him, Eliot simply offers a glare right back and motions towards the mirror. “Please.” He adds obligingly, when Julia pointedly raises her eyebrows at him. His hand slowly falls until Penny sighs and moves around him, gently shoving Eliot out of the way.

Or. Eliot uses Stoppards machine to say goodbye to Quentin.

Quentin startles, flipping around so his back against the balcony wall, and bringing a hand to his chest as Eliot steps out onto the balcony with him. He’s watching him expectantly, a strange little smile on his lips, and Quentin swallows, attempts a sheepish shrug. “It’s a lot,” he says after a moment, carefully turning back around to look over the city view the penthouse grants. He reaches up and clutches the bars on the wall, fists tight and knuckles burning white.

The sound of Eliot’s shoes tapping against the concrete beneath their feet fills the silence, until Quentin can feel him, warm and real, standing just behind him.

Promises by Rizandace
7,751 words | "And since we're never going to see each other again, I'd appreciate it if you'd stop making me feel like shit, for once. Think of it as a going away present."

This stupid and immature outburst doesn't rile Eliot up, the way Quentin was maybe kind of hoping it would. Instead, his incredulous anger falls away instantly, leaving genuine bewilderment and a little bit of hurt in its wake.

"I'm - not trying to make you feel like shit," Eliot says slowly. "Why would you say that?"

Quentin scoffs, turning away from Eliot so he doesn't have to meet his eyes. "I get that you were miserable there, but I wasn't," he admits finally, furious at the burning in his own eyes. "And every time you say something about it, about how awful the whole thing was, it makes me feel - I mean, can't you hear the way it sounds, from my perspective?"

He turns around to see Eliot staring at him with his eyebrows scrunched up. "Complaining about the mosaic was like - our favorite pastime when we were trapped there," he says. "It's revisionist history to pretend we both had a jolly good time with that fucking puzzle."

"The fire is right over there," he said, resisting the urge to nod or point or wave his arms, well aware that his faux cheeriness came out sounding a little closer to panic and oh god, was he panicking? "In the approximate size and shape of Eliot fucking Waugh."

Somehow, he'd still expected surprise. The sheepish look he got instead was just too much. "Right. That."

It's Julia's wedding day, and apparently no one bothered to tell Quentin that his high school boyfriend that he hadn't seen in ten years was going to be there. Quentin is fine.

Even the lines along the doorway to the kitchen, where Quentin had insisted on marking Teddy’s height; Eliot pauses here, to press his nail into the tallest mark, a soft smile dancing along his lips at the memory of Quentin pouting when they finally had the proof that Teddy had officially grown taller than him.

He swallows down a lump and moves down the short hallway. The door to the bedroom is closed, and he hesitates for a moment, before reaching out and wrapping his hand around the knob. He freezes, a memory flashing of Quentin.

“What do you mean, no way? I already sent a message to the family group chat saying you’re coming.”

“Eliot!”

“They weren’t taking me seriously. I had to bring someone they could actually see and touch and breathe in so they believe I have a real boyfriend and not just a random blow up doll I use to pretend there’s someone else in the house with me.”

Quentin stutters for a second, struggling to choose which part of all of that to unpack first.

A Partial Age of Miracles by hetrez
35,376 words | On the tablet Eliot saw a webpage from the New York Daily News, and at the top was a picture of an old woman, holding her own death certificate and smiling. The headline said, "DEAD RISE AGAIN IN QUEENS, BROOKLYN."

Margo said, "You bitches better sober up, because this is a massive goddamn problem, and it just might get us our friend back."


Even in the middle of tragedy, sometimes you can have a cosmically lucky accident.

“Mistletoe?”

Her anger crumbles, cracking into a worried, desperate confusion that Quentin would know. Seriously. He’s seen it every day in the mirror for the past couple weeks. “It’s not even Christmas!” She complains, st...

Routine Maintenance by messier51
2,824 words | Quentin Coldwater is an artificer: a magical mechanic. Some of the Fillorian Royal Couriers use his mechanic services for maintenance of their mechanical wings, which allow them to trave

Quentin's favorite customer (or, his most frustrating one) is a courier named Eliot Waugh, who has a penchant for flirtation and some odd quirks about his wings. Eliot's got a new mission to take a package to Loria and he comes to Quentin for a pre-job check-up.

this year's love had better last by wearealltalesintheend
5,726 words | “Quentin Coldwater?” Eliot asks, just to be sure, just to catch his attention and hold it forever, possibly, just to fill out the air buzzing around them.

Quentin nods, mumbling an incoherent string of sounds.

“I’m Eliot,” he says, and puts out his cigarette, drops down from the school sign. “You’re late.”

Under his assessing gaze, Quentin is obliviously still looking around, and Eliot finds his lost lamb-ness strangely endearing.

This year just might turn out to be interesting, after all.

*

or, the one where Fillory isn't real and a world of problems is avoided, Quentin still finds his way to Brakebills, Eliot still falls in love. Destiny is bullshit, but some things are constants.

5,585 words | “Charlton, I’ll need you to focus. Operation incapacitate the Monster with my own emotions is a go,” Eliot says, elegantly putting the book back on its shelf. He rolls up his sleeves, dramatically tightens his tie, and heads towards the doorway.

“What are you going to do?” Charlton scrambles up from the floor, decidedly alarmed.

“My worst fear,” Eliot says, rolling his eyes as if the answer should have been obvious. “I can show it my worst fear.”

The last time Eliot’s managed to overpower the Monster, it was through the power of his worst memory. So, he figures, wouldn’t it be even better to show it his worst fear?

11,661 words | The thing is: Sex is a good way to pass the time. Sex is good, in a pure, base, animal way. It’s a thing his body wants, another body warmclosewettight around him. Eliot had missed sex, in the year before Quentin kissed him on the mosaic. He’s missed solid masculine bodies for longer than that. It should be something simple, a biological function. But it’s not.

It’s not because Q spread out and open for him is the most beautiful thing Eliot’s ever seen.

I’m fine down here,” he hands them two glasses of what turns out to be an also shockingly good Scotch. “You’re here for Quentin, right?”

“Yeah,” Julia nods, eyeing his suit and tie suspiciously, “are you going to try and stop us?”

It brings a burst of laugh out of Penny. “God, no. Please, take him with you,” he shakes his head, “do you have any idea how much trouble he’s causing here?”

And that brings an almost-smile out of Eliot, because yes, that does sound like him. “Please, do tell.”

As much as Quentin wanted it to be, magic wasn’t actually a fix-all solution, it was there to help sure, but it couldn’t cure the worst of sicknesses, nor could it heal a person’s suffering. He’d know, from personal experience, that his medication helped more than magic ever could, brains were tricky after all and his broke sometimes.
