    Summary

    “Who is getting married?” Quentin mumbled to Eliot but not looking at Eliot because that would be weird.

    “You and I” Eliot replied, placing a hand on Quentin’s shoulder in the most affectionate way possible “I know this must be quite a shock”

    “We are getting married” Quentin mumbled, again, lost in the situation. Poor puppy.

    Fogg and Chatwin were not looking weird at them, at all. God Quentin was not selling this.

    Eliot should have gotten another fiancé.


    I firmly belive that every fandom should have their own version of The Proposal and here I am, ready to deliver something no one asked for.

    Summary

    “I can choose a husband?” High King Eliot asked again, blinking in shock. “A husband?"

    “If you’d like,” Dint said through his teeth. “And a wife, of course." 

    “What if I—” the High King’s eyes darted between Ted and Dint, fast as a bunny sniffed. “What if I only want a husband?”

    Quentin couldn’t feel his legs.
     

    When newly arrived High King Eliot Waugh meets Fillorian Quentin of Coldwater Cove, he makes a decision with lasting consequences not only for the two of them, but for the entire kingdom.

    Summary

    Quentin Coldwater starts his first year at Brakebills University for Magical Pedagogy with his two best friends, Julia Wicker and Arielle Prunum. While he’s thrilled to learn magic is real, he expects his social life to be basically the same—spending all his time with Arielle and Julia and watching as they make friends that he just can’t seem to click with. Eliot Waugh and Margo Hanson make sure that doesn’t happen.

    Alice Quinn has had a love-hate relationship with magic ever since her brother died. The only reason she decides to go to Brakebills, is so she can learn more about what happened to her brother. Quentin Coldwater and Arielle Prunum burst their way into her life, changing everything.

    Kady Orloff-Diaz sees Brakebills as an escape as much as it is a way for Marina Andrieski to exert even more control over her. Her plan is to steal stuff until she gets caught and then to run as fast as she possibly can. Penny Adiyodi, Julia Wicker, and Fen Culter make this plan a little more difficult than she would have preferred.

    In which Fillory doesn’t exist, and that solves as many problems as it causes.

    Summary

    10/24/20 Chapters 11,12 and 13 are all new this week.

    ***

    After the events at Blackspire, Quentin and Eliot settle down together in Manhattan, eventually joined by most of their friends. No external crises on the horizon (or are there...?), no longer in school; they're left with a lot of money and time to explore who they are, what they want, and what they still need to work through--both as a couple and individually.

    Along the way: travel, fine dining and wining, kink, friendship, parties, hedonism, friction, self discovery, a mystery or two, and--of course--magic.

    This work continues the series For Want of a Nail, an AU serial novel where the Library doesn't succeed in siphoning off magic, and every major character escapes from Blackspire intact. (Including the Monster, but never mind that right now...)

    Chapter one picks up a few weeks after Quentin and Eliot's return to New York from New Jersey in Familiarity.

    Summary

    Post S5E13 (Fillory and Further)

    Finding a way to Fillory seems impossible. But the impossible is what magicians do.

    Charlton tries to find himself and what this new life on Earth means, and how he fits into it. He finally looks and feels like himself, but he doesn’t know what his place in this world is.

    The isolation of Eliot not being with the rest of his friends is crushing, but sometimes the happy ending comes after the curtain closes.

    The key to finding the new Fillory is right in front of them, if they can find a way to use it before it’s too late. A journey to get to Fillory is exactly what Charlton and Eliot need, but it will require all the help their friends can give to get there, and most of all, they’ll need each other.

    Summary

    "Margo gasped and jumped, she hadn't heard Alice move closer. Her skin was as pale as the rest of her, nails cut short and neat. There were scars here and there across the back of her hands, memories of battles Margo knew nothing about. She didn’t know if it was her place to ask.

    It wasn’t hard to see they’d led very different lives before and after the brief moment their paths crossed at Brakebills. Margo’s hands were as smooth and unblemished as could be, given what she’d been through. Her nails were painted a rich, royal purple and carefully filed into an almond shape. There was not a chip to be found in her nail polish."

    Summary

    Eliot was raised on a small farm in the state of Indiana. This was a secret he had shared with very few people. By the time he had begun his second year at Brakebills University for Magical Pedagogy, Eliot had worked very hard to become the persona he put forth for the world to see. As Eliot put it, “Becoming me was the greatest creative project of my life.” The suave, sophisticated god of hedonism that everyone knew and wished they could be was Eliot’s most elaborate charm, and he wore it well. His favorite past-times were mixing drinks at one of his elaborate parties, and tormenting the newest first-year that lived in the Physical Kids’ Cottage with him. His name was Quentin, but he never called him that.

    Isn't that a wonderful beginning?

    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.

    Quentin freed Eliot from the Monster and lost himself in the process. It's not the choice Eliot would have made.

    Summary

    Here he was, at Hogwarts. Quentin had dreamed of being a student here forever. He could feel the magic thrumming in the air, could see it in the lights twinkling in the ceiling.

    He felt a tickle on the back of his neck, and he looked to the table of green and silver ties. Quentin forced himself to not look to the ground, and his brown eyes locked with a set of hazel ones. Even at this distance, he could see the intensity within, a sparkle of excitement as they swept over him, head to foot and back up again. Quentin’s breath hitched and he wiped his suddenly damp palms on his robes.

    Hazel Eyes also had full dark hair, short, wavy and slightly mussed, with a stray curl or two falling over his forehead. Quentin took in his strong jaw, full lips, a tiny cleft in his chin, and a slightly loosened tie peeking out above the neck of his robe. He exuded the kind of effortless, lazy sexiness that Quentin knew he couldn’t embody in one finger on his best day.

    Hazel Eyes made no attempt to hide his appraisal of Quentin. A slow smile spread across his lips as he stared back at him, his look full of promise and intent that Quentin wasn’t sure he could handle. But I sure would love to try, Quentin thought.

    Summary

    It’s hard to be The Bard! Quentin Coldwater, playwright for The Whitespire Theater, is supposed to write a fantastic new love story in the span of three weeks. But breaking up with his muse Alice Quinn, and constant badgering from his boss Josh Hoberman, aren’t doing anything to help his crippling writer’s block. That is, until a new, unknown actor appears just in time during auditions, capturing his imagination and his heart. Eliot Waugh has turned to acting for one last adventure before he’s forced to marry Lady Fen of Wessex. Together, Quentin and Eliot risk everything for the chance to show the world that a simple play truly can depict “the beauty of all life.”

    Based on Shakespeare in Love (1999) for the Magicians Happily Ever After collection.

    Summary

    A story in multiple parts.

    In the beginning, Eliot is old. His life really hasn't gone as planned, not unexpectedly--we know how Eliot is. But, as it turns out, there's a way to fix things, to revise his life. And Margo knows what's best for him; she really does. Even if he doesn't know it himself.

    When he reaches Quentin, things aren't as simple as they seem. When you're two people at once in a world that seems entirely un-magical, nothing is really ever simple.

    And Quentin, as we know is never a simple human to deal with. His protective friend has a lot of things to say when she finds out he's been seduced by Eliot Waugh, talented fashion student and total disaster human that no one should trust.

    It turns out there was a reason Eliot was able to come here, and it's just like everything in his life--completely fucking tragic and complicated. But things slowly start to shift sideways, and there's hope in the strangest of places, and perhaps, magic as well.

    This is a story with: a whole bunch of feelings, explicit sex scenes because that's how I do, lots of Queliot, all the Queliot, characters slightly OC sometimes just because it's a different universe and there are no rules.
