    Summary

    When he stops to think about it, he doesn’t really think he's jealous, not of— not of the attention Eliot gets, anyway. Of his ease with magic, sure, maybe, but Eliot’s been at Brakebills two years longer than Quentin. It’d be weird if he wasn’t better at magic than Quentin. Jealous of Eliot’s comfort in himself, well— possibly. He’s always been a little jealous of anyone who seems at ease in their own skin, in a way Quentin doesn’t think he’ll ever be.

    But he’s not jealous of Eliot Waugh, ideal omega. That’s not something Quentin’s ever wanted to be.

    So why can’t he stop thinking about him?

    Summary

    Finally, Eliot says, “Quentin.” He turns to look him in the eye, his face settling into a casual smile. “We’re friends, right? We know each other pretty well?”

    “Ye-es?” Quentin says.

    “And you’re a brave boy,” Eliot says. “Open to delving into the unknown. Looking for your next great adventure.”

    “I, uh.” That isn’t how Quentin would normally describe himself, but somehow — with Eliot’s hazel eyes shining at him, the full force of his warm, encouraging energy focused on Quentin’s face — he sits up a little straighter, and says, “Sure, I guess.”

    “Great,” Eliot says brightly, “so how would you like to pretend we’re dating for a week so we can get into the most secretive magical couples’ party of the modern era?”

    Summary

    "It's so stupid," Eliot says, his annoyance at the situation clearly curving inward and transmogrifying into self-loathing. If anyone knows what self-loathing looks like, it's Quentin. "After I walked out of Mike's apartment this morning, I never wanted to see him again, but now—" He cuts himself off with another laugh; this one sounds strangled, a desperate attempt to wrangle and mask every other emotion he’s feeling. "Is that fucked up? That I want my boyfriend with me when I see my mom for the first time in almost a decade?"

    Summary

    All Eliot feels is his chest expanding to accommodate for the sudden growth of affection for this man. This man, who accepted all of Eliot’s brokenness but couldn’t seem to do it for himself. This man, who now knew how much of a mess Eliot was - could still so easily become – but still wanted to stay, wanted him. Eliot swallows down the heavy feeling of… something threatening to spill up and out of him, and he lifts Quentin’s hand to his lips instead to stem the flow of whatever is bubbling up inside.

    or;

    Eliot takes Quentin out on their first date together.

    Summary

    “So,” Eliot said against Quentin’s mouth, rocking their hips together oh so slowly, ducking his head to lick at Quentin’s pulse point, “of the things you’ve written, which one’s your favorite? Which one gets you the hottest?”

    “I am not,” Quentin said, shoving up onto his elbow and glaring at Eliot, “going to fucking reenact my fucking fanfic with you.”

    Summary

    “Seriously, what’s with all this, El?” Margo asks, daintily eating a seven-layer bar with a fork. “Why the fuck have you gone all domestic goddess on me? Did you decide you’re gonna be a magical dentist when you graduate and you want to guarantee yourself a steady stream of patients?”

    “Does there have to be an ulterior motive?” Eliot sets the pan of bars on the table with a little stack of plates and pile of forks. “Can’t I just enjoy taking care of my friends?”

    "Look, Q. There's really no easy way to say this," Eliot says, looking serious. Quentin's breath catches in anticipation. "I can hear you when you masturbate."

    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

    Eliot laughed and took the hint, kissing over the line of Quentin’s throat, teasing with his teeth and just the tip of his tongue. “I’m getting the sense that relaxing instead of cleaning up won’t be the end of I should get what I want this evening, will it?”

    “Probably not,” Quentin said. Eliot’s arms tightened around his waist again, one broad hand gripping his thigh. “But ultimately that’s— mm— that’s gonna be up to you, to decide if I get it.”

    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

    “Yeah,” Quentin says, toying with a blade of grass. If he looks at the lawn, he doesn’t have to look at Eliot. If he keeps his hands busy, they won’t do anything ill-advised. He feels warm from the inside out, here in the sun with his friends and magic, real magic, all around them. He can just let things be good as they are, for now. There’s no rush.
