    Summary

    The first time it happens, he’s curled up in bed, hugging a pillow close to his chest. Drowning in that in between place — halfway to dead to the world and still painfully aware of every twitch in his limbs. He hasn’t been able to get a real rest — one that doesn’t end with him jittery and nauseous when he wakes up — since Julia and Margo sat down at the edge of his bed and told him that he wouldn’t be able to fix his mistake. Since they told him that Quentin died. That Quentin killed himself. 

    That Quentin died thinking he was unloved. 

    He squeezes his eyes shut tighter, willing the thoughts to stop fucking cycling round and round in his head. Practically pleading with the all knowing omniscient god torturing his eternal soul from the depths of his mind. For a second, just the smallest second, the kind that’s barely even acknowledgeable as the passage of time, his mind goes completely blank. 

    A flash of darkness in a lightning storm. 

    --

    Or, a little bit of accidental magic, a significant amount of angst, and one resurrection.

    Life happens fast; one moment, Quentin's married, with his first child and a beautiful, amazing wife - and then the next, she's gone, and he's drowning.

    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. And sometimes, it means having some time to find oneself, to decide who you want to be, rather than who you think you should be.

    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 they’ll need each other.

    Summary

    “I think I’ve waited long enough to meet Eliot,” his dad says, and Quentin can already feel himself caving. He’s run out of excuses, and he can sense it, his dad’s going to bring out the big guns— “and we don’t know how long until the cancer comes back, and I just want—”

    There it is. Ted knocks through the last barrier he has in his defenses, and Quentin folds, just like that cheap-ass card table Eliot was using as a bar until he slammed one too many shot glasses down on it.

    “Okay!” Fuck. Goddammit shit fuck fuck fuck. “Okay. I’ll bring him. For a visit.”

    “Really? Fantastic. For your birthday next weekend? I can cook. Or order in. Your favorite. Whatever you want! You can spend the weekend?”

    “Sure!” Why the fuck not? I’d love to spend my birthday fake-dating the man I’m in love with, who is most definitely not in love with me, so my dad can die peacefully, assured his son won’t spend the rest of his life with only his Fillory books, Star Wars action figures, and anatomically correct blow-up dolls for company.

    Post S3 AU. No monster. The only disasters here are bisexual ones. Post-mosaic fake-dating shenanigans.

    Summary

    He’s bleary eyed, stumbling along the sidewalk, lights from the city glaring down at him, chest heaving with every aching, heavy breath. He can still feel the dirt between his teeth, the coarse texture of it lining his throat from where he’d breathed it in. His fingers ache, cuticles bleeding and tender where the dirt lines them. He glances down at them, vision going dark for a moment before phasing back in. His hands stretched out in front of him, palm out. Hands are so dirty.

    Or, Quentin digs himself out of a grave.

    Summary

    "You need to go off the garden path." - Jane Chatwin

    "The bridge between your past self and your present self is delicate. If you break it…" - Alice Quinn

    After forty timeloops, one little shift caused by Quentin's timeshare spell was enough to create a splinter timeline - Timeline 41. In Timeline 41, "Mike" is around for longer, but Eliot, Margo, and Quentin get closer in the end. So do Alice and Penny. Friendships take unexpected turns, and they left the garden path behind long ago. But all roads lead, in the end, to Fillory.

    Part of a series but can be mostly read as a standalone.

    Summary

    In a world where only Magicians present with sexual designations, Alphas Margo Hanson and Eliot Waugh have two main rules: no omegas and no undesignated first years.
    Obviously, they did had a third rule. But it didn't need reiterating, Margo and Eliot came first. They were a unit.
    They keep their habit of seducing first year Brakebills boys to presented Betas and Alphas and outside of their own dynamic the duo don't really have friends.
    When first-year Quentin Coldwater shows up all doe-eyed, Eliot is surprised when he worms his way under his skin and Margo can barely admit that she can't get him out of her head. Quentin is mostly oblivious as usual.

    What happens when Margo and Eliot get to know Quentin while waiting for him to present?
    The duo wasn't looking for a regular, let alone a committed third, at least as far as Margo knew.
    What happens when Quentin finally presents? Far later than most magical adepts, in the middle of the cottage sitting room?

    Summary

    Harry's great aunt Dorea and uncle Charlus have been keeping an eye on him for years. They finally decide to take Harry to Brakebills where Dorea will be teaching.

    While there Harry throws himself into his studies but not enough to not notice the hot guy Eliot and everything that's going on around them. He figures this place will be even better than Hogwarts was the one year he'd attended.

    Things aren't' what we were told and believe. What is the truth about the timelines?

    Harry is changing Timeline 40 but is it for the better or worse.

    (Everyone is in the same year. The reasoning I'm going with is basically Eliot and Margo's birthdays pushed them back a year. You'll understand better when you read the story.)

    Summary

    Nora Reid goes into a bar and meets Kady Orloff-Diaz.

    Or:

    "This kid, looking like a Brakebills first-year, came to the bar today asking for a tattoo. A spell to influence people, which honestly borders on mind control. She offered to pay a lot. Like, a lot. Didn't care at all that it would get her killed if she has no idea what she's doing, and had a general 'fuck morality' vibe, in addition to the desperation. I couldn't say no and have her go to Marina, who would do it in a heartbeat. Couldn't take her money either, though, so I told her some bullshit about how it would dishonor me as a witch to get paid to share magic with others, and did the tattoo. Well, a tattoo. One that makes it impossible to ever make a spelling mistake. She looked nerdy enough to never notice."
