    Summary

    There’s a layer of dust coating everything in the cottage, like nobody’s been here since them. A thick white film, almost the perfect representation of what their lives ended up being. He swipes a finger along the counter as he goes, a thin streak left behind, as he marvels at the fact that it’s exactly how they left it — despite never having actually been here. 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.

    ---

    Or, hey there's actually a use for the vial of blood.

    Summary

    He keeps stumbling across the others tucked away in all its corners, washed up like survivors of some great storm. They collect in ones and twos: here in the kitchen, here on the stairs, here on the balcony, here just outside the bathroom. Like they’ve come unspooled and settled where they’ve fallen only to scrape themselves up long enough to eke out something in the shape of living. They’re all adrift in the big, hollow sea of an apartment, and he’s the shipwreck, half sunk, all ribs and spars dragging them down.

    It's a long road back to okay, but they're managing it as best they can, and they're managing it together, and that's the part that matters.

    Summary

    "The Curse of the Lover's Touch," Kady said, slapping down a piece of paper on the bedside table next to Q. Her lip actually curled as she said it, as she seemingly realized how nauseating the name was.

    "It's actually pretty simple. Hedges usually only bother with it when they think someone is unloved and alone, because it's a double-whammy, see? You start dying, slowly and painfully, and you also get the knowledge that if you weren't such a dickhead and you had true love in your life, you'd be totally fine."

    Q gets cursed, and Alice can't help. Magic forces Q and Eliot to cuddle and talk about their feelings.

    Summary

    … is requested at the celebration of the legal solemnization of the ecstatic conjugal bliss between Formerly High King Now Courtesy-Title-Only King Eliot and King Quentin-- Actually just Quentin is-- No. You’re a King. King Quentin. Italicize that. Conjugal, too. Anyway, blah blah blah. Time date place. Her serene and stabby majesty High King Fen will serenely stab you if you decline to attend and/or bring off-registry gifts--

    Wait. Hold on a sec. Lemme see that . . . oh. El, he’s. Christ. He’s transcribing this word for word. Like, every word-- Of course he is-- Tick. TICK! Jesus, how is he still writing? Also, how is his calligraphy that good, seriously?

    You’ve been on Earth too long, baby. Well, let’s just lean in, shall we? Love Fillorian style. We’re getting fucking married. You’re invited. Bunny us your regrets only.

    And you will regret it. Italicize the will. All caps. And a very tasteful sketch of my hand up King Quentin’s--

     

     

    Eliot and Quentin are getting married. A story in three acts, as told by three of the somewhat less dearly beloved, gathered here today.

    (Or: the best thing about true love? It doesn’t need to make sense to anyone except the ones in it.)

    Summary

    In a world where Elementals are treasured members of society, the percentage of them are dropping. To combat this, each kingdom arranges for the most powerful male and female of their element to marry in hopes of them producing elementals who will go on to produce more. Marriages can be arranged, but love? That's a whole different story.

    Or

    Quentin Coldwater knows he’s meant to marry Julia Wicker, and she knows she’s meant to marry him. As the most powerful male and female of their element, it was only a matter of time before their marriage was arranged. And it’s good. They’re best friends. It’s going to be easy. Except for the fact that Quentin is head over heels for the strongest male earth elemental and Julia is in love with the strongest female and male fire elementals. While Alice Quinn and Margo Hanson are also pining for each other, Josh just wants to be single. What’s the worst that can happen, really?

    Summary

    When Eliot was in the happy place, after he’d gained control of his body and then lost it again, he’d told himself he would do absolutely anything to make things right. Turns out “absolutely anything” is pretty goddamn spectacular when you’re free, and healthy, and you’ve got the most beautiful man in the world so turned on he’s shaking, because you’re showing him all the ways that he can say, “No,” and you’ll listen to him.
     

    Or: consent porn, with feelings.

    Summary

    Eliot is saved and the monster is gone, but the body he's left with is far from healed. The aftermath of his possession leaves him feeling overwhelmed and unable to process the world around him in the same way.

    or

    Eliot is touch-starved but can't be touched, and just when he really wanted to be touched by Quentin. But where there's a will there's a way, and they have the will in spades.

    Summary

    “If you’d like to review the full terms and conditions of your deal, you can have as much time as you need to read--”

    Eliot shook his head, still not quite used to the way his hair curled below his chin, now, since he hadn’t been around to keep it properly groomed for the last-- however long it had been. God, he hadn’t even bothered to ask.

    “You get my deep, dark, never-told secret, and I get the opportunity to try and Orpheus-and-Eurydice Q the fuck out of this place,” he said, cutting through Penny’s bureaucratic power-trip. “I got it the first twelve times.”

    “I would strongly advise--”

    “I’m ready.”

    The corners of Penny’s mouth went up, but it would have been a stretch to call the expression a smile. “No, you’re really not."

     

    The Monster's been defeated, Quentin is dead, and Eliot has a quest of his own--if he can trust himself to complete it. An Orpheus and Eurydice remix.

    Summary

    Back in Fillory, present day, Eliot struggles with the rush of memories from a life he apparently lived, even though he didn't. But there's a quest to be finished, a kingdom to be run, and a world with no magic to make it all infinitely more difficult. So what's a High King to do when flashbacks won't stop and Quentin acts like he just wants to move forward?

    I wanted to play with all the empty spaces from THE scene in A Life in the Day, and explore the fallout from it in the present world that never really got shown. I hope you enjoy!

    Summary

    Look. When your friends, who are too socially maladjusted to admit they’re your friends, ask you to watch your not crush while they go conquer some great evil across the planes of existence—you do it.

    You just. Need to ask more questions than Todd did.

    “When will you be back?”

    Margo’s hurried response of, “Can’t say. Just—read him what we wrote. He’ll start remembering when the fairy spell wears off and then demand you leave his presence for all of eternity. Just like normal.” hadn’t really been all that helpful when it comes to calming Eliot down.

    And it figured that Quentin and Margo had dashed back into the portal before Todd could even raise a finger to point out that maybe he’s not the best person for the job.

    --

    Prompt: Character A gets temporary short-term amnesia. Character B gets bored of constantly updating them on what's going on, so they start telling bigger and bigger lies to see what they'll believe.

    Summary

    The monster kidnaps Eliot and Quentin and forces them to star in its own chaotic television show. But it changes the premise every time it gets bored, so they're constantly facing entirely different scenarios and genres - zombies and romance and superheroes and spies and god knows what else. And somehow, in the middle of all that, they have to figure out how to get themselves home.

    ****

    Brian wonders if perhaps he might be dead.

    He does this idly, like it’s nothing more than a vaguely interesting thought experiment, one in which he doesn’t have any real stake in the possible outcomes.

    It’s almost as if he’s imagined being dead many, many times before, enough that it’s no longer a frightening concept. (Although he has no memory of doing anything like that.) 

    What he does remember is the stalker on the street, the handsome one with the glowing eyes and disturbing rant about playtime and friendship and wrath, and then Brian was just…here. Still standing upright but rendered immobile somehow, trapped in a seemingly infinite blank space where everything is warm and white and soft, like he’s been firmly shoved up the ass of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

    Fen needed to get out of Fillory. She just didn't expect to be followed; and by Margo of all people. Mourning is a hell of a lot harder when the person who caused the pain won't leave you alone. My #Fentastic week oneshot!
