    Summary

    “Hey, ignore Eliot,” says Quentin. “He’s… you know, just being Eliot.”

    Quentin POV of "if being him is who you are / say it loud say you know you are", and then some. Would recommend reading 'part 1' first!

    Summary

    Eliot Waugh is the Prince of Brakebills University, living without a care in the world. That is, until his platonic soulmate finds love, thanks to his definitely-not-unintentional matchmaking. It was a big change, but all’s well that ends well and he’s happy for Margo and Julia. You know. Mostly.

    But no one likes a renowned hedonist who focuses on his inner maudlin blah. So instead, Eliot opts to invest his energy into taking a new girl under his wing. She's dorky, intense, fresh off a year-long sojourn at Brakebills South... and in desperate need of fun.

    What a lucky young lady that Alice Quinn is.

    (Or: Unabashedly Queer “Emma,” at Brakebills.)

    Summary

    "You should have been more hospitable to strangers my dear Margo and my young Prince." As the stranger spoke she transformed into the Witch of the Darkling Woods. "For since you both laughed in my face and I see no love in your hearts except for each other there will be a curse on you and all that live in this castle." Picking up the rose, she continued, "If you both can learn to love another as you love each other and they return your love before the last petal falls the curse will be broken. If not you will both remain as you will be."

    Summary

    Quentin honestly doesn't know what he'd expected when Julia and James said that they were going to throw a graduation party.

    All of the people? Well, James is fairly popular, so the fact that the party had gotten larger than any of them had expected wasn't entirely unexpected. It had happened before. Still, it leaves Quentin feeling crowded and anxious in his own apartment, and he doesn't appreciate it.

    As he skirts the improvised dance floor in their living room, someone bumps into him, knocking him into someone else. Quentin glances up and up until he meets the other guy's gaze, his own eyes wide once he catches sight of the raised eyebrow and smirk that are waiting for him. "Oh, um. Sorry!" he says, pitching his voice just loud enough to be heard over the music and hoping his apology didn't come across as a squeak as he most-definitely-does-not bolt the rest of the way to his room.

    Eliot watches him go, and waits until he's disappeared into a room at the back of the apartment before he leans into his companion. "I want one."

    Summary

    Quentin had not questioned it, at first, when Eliot had taken to disappearing for days without notice, not to be seen anywhere around the cottage or the campus. He figured that who partied as hard as Eliot and Margo did have to deal with the occasional aftermath like any other mortal. That was until he noticed that Eliot and Margo didn't do hangovers.

    That left the mystery of where Eliot disappeared to whenever he was MIA unsolved.

    Summary

    "He doesn’t think anything of it, in the moment. "I called dibs". Eliot was always pointing other guys he found hot. Mike figured it was his way of keeping him on his toes, teasingly reminding him that he had other prospects, and more importantly, a wider interest."

    Or, based the "he's pretty" / "I know, but I called dibs" exchange: sometimes threesomes get... complicated when two of the people are in love and won't admit it.

    Summary

    When up-and-coming playwright Quentin Coldwater lands the Brakebills Theatre Co. spring residency program, he's pretty sure life's as good as it's ever gonna get. After all, Brakebills introduced him to the magic of the theatre in the first place, and now he's got the chance to work with them––and their very handsome, very helpful associate director Eliot Waugh.

    But it's one thing to open a door and another thing entirely to follow where it leads.

    Summary

    Quentin felt a little bitter towards the whole situation because this only provided evidence for the “Eliot doesn’t want to be his soulmate” theory.

    He knows it’s unfair of him to wish for any form of a more-than-platonic relationship with Eliot. Just because you’re soulmates with someone doesn’t mean you’ll work on a long-term basis.

    His parents didn’t work. As soon as he was born Quentin’s mum left and started dating her colleague, Molly. They’re still not married but Quentin thinks it’s for the best, his mum doesn’t do well tied down. She panics and begins to feel trapped … and then she runs.

    When she runs she’ll drop everything, her job, her kid, everything.

    Eliot’s probably the same way.

    -ˏˋ alternatively ˊˎ-

    The one where Quentin and Eliot start chatting through an online school forum prior to their first live meeting, soulmate shenanigans and anxiety ensues.

    (Title is from Blue Heaven Midnight Crush by Betty Who.)

    Summary

    “In the body that Eliot--” Better that time, but still sour. “--killed. Mike. There was something else using Mike’s body. But Eliot--”

    Oh .

    “-- didn’t mind. He liked it.”

    He liked it in the bodies way. The way that The Body liked Quentin and Quentin liked The Body, sometimes, but pretended that he didn’t.

    OhhHhh .
     
    He slipped forward in the chair and now he was close enough for The Body to feel Quentin and for Quentin to feel The Body, close enough for the long edges of its sweater to fall against Quentin’s jeans.

    “Should I have done it that way?” he asked.

     

     

     

     

    On the eternal quest for Quentin's attention, The Monster stumbles upon a new approach.
