    Summary

    Margo is back and Quentin is dealing. And by dealing, he is absolutely not dealing with anything. But Eliot needs them, and so does Julia. Or, a Librarian wants to become a god, a neo-fascist organization wants to stomp out a rebellion, and a couple of high-strung millennials just want to take a fucking nap.

    (In this house, we accept the canon we think we deserve, which is better than whatever the fuck those last three episodes of season 4 were.)

    Margo and Eliot find themselves 300 years in the future with a Dark King ruling Fillory. Only that Dark King is someone they know.

    Summary

    “I had a dream,” he murmurs, letting the words drift, directionless into the air around him. He doesn’t expect Quentin to reply. How could he? He hasn’t said more than a handful of words since Eliot woke up, barring the quiet, ‘I’m glad you’re not dead’ whispered into his bed while he thought Eliot was sleeping.

    Eliot twists his neck, catches the tail end of a too quick movement of Quentin purposefully looking away—back up to the sky. Swallows down the hurt that suddenly fills him up with the residual panic from his dreams. “I think it was more a nightmare, actually.” He pauses, but Quentin only blinks, his Adam’s apple bobbing; the barest hint of a shadow movement beneath the moonlight. “Can I tell you about it?”

    ----

    Or, Eliot has a bad dream, and he and Quentin decide it's time to confront their issues.

    Summary

    When Alice saw the figure standing there, her first, improbable thought, was Eliot. But, no-- that wasn’t-- it was a young woman. Younger than Alice, even, probably. She had on leather boots that went up to her thighs over leather leggings, and a long, drapey-- Renaissance Fair-style (Fillorian, she hissed inside, you know it’s Fillorian) blouse. Her thick black hair was pushed back over one shoulder and her eyes--

    “Holy shit,” the girl-- woman-- said under her breath, her mouth curling into an uncanny almost-grin, as Alice stared like an idiot.

    “Alice Quinn,” she said suddenly, straightening up to her full height-- taller than Alice. “I’m Quentin Coldwater’s daughter from the future,” she said, like she’d rehearsed it-- that was the easier part for Alice to focus on, the delivery. “And I need you to help me save my family.”

     

    Or: Alice saves Queliot, and saves the world. And just maybe figures out who she's always been.

    Summary

    Down in the Secrets Room with Penny40 and Quentin, something happens that changes the course of everything, with far reaching ramifications that none of them could've predicted. Because there was no way that the story of Quentin Coldwater was going to end here. Not now, not like this. Not when there were so many people who still needed him in their lives.

    Summary

    “I don’t think either of us is exactly married to anyone, anymore,” Eliot hedges, giving Q a sheepish look.

    “The circumstances aren’t really clear,” Quentin says, picking up the paper to squint at it again. “I think we could fake it.”

    “You can’t fake a marriage for magic, Quentin.”

    Summary

    “You still want to climb out of here?”

    “Yes,” Quentin says immediately.

    “It’s going to be hard,” Penny warns, his gaze weirdly intense and serious.

    “God, yeah, I figured it would be,” Quentin mutters, squirming out of Penny’s personal space. “Everything from pretty much every mythology ever says it’s a pain in the ass.”

    Summary

    Two days after everything settles down, and a week after they get Quentin back, Eliot tells Margo to have Quentin meet him where they first met.

    He’s wearing the same outfit, though he’ll never admit the fit has grown a bit snug, thanks to the monsters dietary habits. He’s in the same position he was when Quentin first came stumbling back up to him—lit cigarette in one hand, a hastily made card with Quentin’s name in the other—while he lounges across the stone. All poise and confidence—even, if he’s being honest, right about now his hearts definitely arguing the confidence of it all. If the way it’s pounding anxiously in his chest is anything to go by, that is.

    But, it doesn’t matter, because he remembers that first day perfectly. And for the bits he didn’t, Margo had been gracious enough to cast a remembrance spell, because, ‘Like hell I’m leaving this all in your hands, El. You have a tendency to screw up when it comes to Q.’

    Summary

    eliot clutched the watch in his hand, eyes flickering from it to margo, who held the time key in her hand. they thought it had been lost after blackspire, but with the help of a few questing creatures, they got it back. now, all they had to do was set their time back to before quentin, alice, and penny had gone into the mirror realm, so they could get quentin to not be a self-sacrificing prick and kill himself. with a shuddering breath, eliot held margo's hand as they worked the time spell together. if they got this right, they would find themselves back in the brakebills medical wards, and margo could get quentin to stay before he left for the mirror realm.

    but shit never worked out for them did it? instead of going back a month, they went back years. to before quentin had even gotten into brakebills. the start of the old timelines, the timelines to defeat the beast.

    or; eliot and margo use jane chatwin's old timeloop to fix fillory and quentin's death, and instead send them back to 2016 brakebills, so now they have to live through that whole mess again in timeline 41.

    Summary

    Quentin stops just outside the archway, and looks down at the metro card in his hand. He mattered to them. It’s okay. They’ll be okay. He just needs to--to walk through the door.

    But.

    “Something wrong?”

    He blinks down at the card, turning it over in his palm, and quietly says to it, “You never did answer my question.” He looks up from the card, and twists around to turn his gaze on Penny. His hands are tucked in his pockets, and he seems mostly surprised that Quentin hasn’t gone through the door yet. “Did I? Kill myself?”

    Penny stares at him for a long moment before taking a half step towards him and rolling his shoulders. “Does it matter?”

    That’s the question, isn’t it? His friends were mourning him--he mattered to them. His life wasn’t this meaningless disaster he’d always thought it was. And for once, his brain isn’t compounded by countless thoughts of ‘what if I--’s. For once in his entire life, it’s all just silent, and it shouldn’t matter how it happened. He should just turn, and step through the door and--

    “Yes.”

    Summary

    It wasn’t like that anymore. He and Eliot weren’t-- they didn’t. Because Quentin was with Alice. And being with Alice, the way they were now-- it made sense, for Quentin. Or, it had made sense, when there was the Monster, and Quentin hadn’t thought there was a possibility with Eliot, even if-- even when they got him back.

     

    In a weird way, it had made even more sense once Eliot came back (thank God thank God thank God) and revealed that, guess what, he did want Quentin after all. Because Quentin always wanted too much from the people and things he loved, from Alice to Eliot to Fillory; how many times did he have to learn that lesson? And after-- after-- everything, fuck-- these last six months. Maybe it was time to accept what Eliot had always known, even if he’d forgotten a little, understandably, after being trapped alone inside a monster for so long: that no one would choose to sign up for fifty years of tending to the gaping black hole inside Quentin.

     

    And then came that night, last month.

    Summary

    Post-finale fix-it: Fillory Deeper & Harder, the S4 canon-compliant season 5 Queliot fans deserve.

    In which Eliot's marginally less afraid of commitment, Quentin is less clueless than he used to be, & Margo is a sassy alpha bitch.

    There's sex magicky shenanigans, a giant turtle, talking pegasi, and a plot to overthrow the Dark King and reclaim Fillory, all done Queliot-style.

    Soon, all will be well in the world.

    COMPLETE.

    Note: This belongs to the same verse (The Peaches Verse) as "Sound & Color", but the two works are entirely independent.

    Summary

    Eliot is back. Everyone is safe. Quentin might be freaking out a little.

    “Okay, look,” he began. “I’ll just...lay it out. Cause I don’t know what else to do.” He took a breath, realizing he sounded almost angry. But not at her. “When we got back from Fillory, when we remembered that alternate timeline...I said, ‘hey, why don’t we, you know, try it for real.’ You know, us,” he added to her. “And he said ‘no.’ So, okay, fine, that was fucking that, right?”

    He glanced at her long enough to see the frown lines between her brows. “And then...you know...everything else happened. And he was...gone.” He hated the way his voice broke on the last word. “And now he’s back. And he said… He said…that…he wants to try. Wants to be together.”
