    Summary

    In a world where only Magicians present with sexual designations, Alphas Margo Hanson and Eliot Waugh had two main rules: no omegas and no undesignated first years.
    Obviously, they 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?
    *Previously titled Treacherous, reposted due to edits*

    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 even closer in the aftermath. Friendships take unexpected turns, and they left the garden path behind long ago. But in the end, all roads lead beyond the world they know.

    Part of the Sand and Stone 'verse but can be read on its own.

    Summary

    Quentin catches feelings. A lot. When the love letters he wrote to cope with those feelings get out? He has only one option: pretending to be Eliot's boyfriend, to help Eliot get back at his ex, and to avoid Alice confronting him about her letter at all costs. Everything’s bound to blow over by Eliot’s “contingency plan” of going to Encanto Oculto together... right? Except, Quentin doesn’t know what’s more impossible: that his feelings for Eliot are growing stronger every day, or that he’s starting to believe he actually deserves the love he’s always wanted.

    Inspired by "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" (2018)

    Summary

    Eliot was the artist in the family, but now without much family left, he's the sole inheritor of Four Seasons Total Landscaping, the family business that his alcoholic father and brother have left disorganized and in debt. He doesn't even like plants. Quentin and Julia own Fantasyland, the equally struggling feminist sex shop next door, which should be Quentin's dream job, but the chronic depression that derailed his academic career hasn't left much space in his life to believe in dreams. Quentin and Eliot click immediately, but in order to get a relationship off the ground, at least one of them is going to have to deal with his fear of commitment, and who has that kind of free time? A love story about figuring out what you want to do for a living, daddy issues, best friend drama, recovery, kink, and other dangers inherent to one's 20s.

    Summary

    Есть люди, с которыми ты общаешься, дружишь или встречаешься, потому что тебе с ними интересно. Потому что они сложные, умные, красивые, и вам нравится проводить время вместе. А есть люди, с которыми ты общаешься, потому что твое сердце уже принадлежит им. Как будто оно бьется не в твоей, а в их груди, и только с ними ты чувствуешь себя дома. Целым.

    Summary

    Quentin's pretty sure that the alley he just turned down for his usual shortcut to his favorite froyo place doesn't open up onto a field. It should open up onto Thirty-First, as a matter of fact, but.

    There's far too much sunlight on his face, too little noise, and the scent of people pressing in from every direction has all but vanished. The only traces of the scent of the city, of all the betas and alphas and omegas that he constantly brushes against, are lingering on his coat. Even those are quickly dissipating in the breeze that ruffles his hair, though, and Quentin takes another few steps forward, looking around in awe. He's never seen a place like this before, and the part of him that still clings to the magic of Fillory can't help but wonder if he found his own clock door.

    The more practical side of him points out that it's more likely he's finally just lost it, in the face of finding his interviewer dead.

    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

    In a land of myth, and a time of magic… the destiny of a great kingdom rests on the shoulders of a young boy. His name… Quentin.

     or

    - Но Элиот совсем другой, - возразил Квентин, - он будет справедливым королем, я позабочусь об этом.

    - Или не будет, - Белая Дама пожала плечами. - Ты думаешь, судьба - это каменная римская дорога, прямая и надежная, но на самом деле судьба - это тропинки в лесу, а они меняются.

    Summary

    Eliot Waugh is an actor on the brink of the biggest break of his career. Quentin Coldwater is a former child star turned aspiring screenwriter who's paying his dues as a glorified PA. Three years of near-constant contact has turned their codependent working relationship into a close, comfortable bond that one refuses to examine too closely and the other is reluctant to risk.

    When the studio behind Eliot's prospective new project expresses their doubts about his party boy public image, his reps brainstorm a way to make him more marketable: raffling off a night on the town on Eliot's arm. The winner is a wholesome farm boy from Brakebills, Texas, who makes such a surprising impression that Eliot agrees to take a vacation from the spotlight to spend some time in Mike's tiny hometown. But somewhere between bar bathrooms and bad motels, Eliot might be brave enough to act on what he really wants… and Quentin might just manage to write his way to a happy ending.

    Loosely based, with liberal creative license, on Win a Date with Tad Hamilton.

    25m Seeking Roommate

    Uhm, hi. My name is Quentin. I really need a roommate. Like ASAP. My best friend moved out, she’s going to grad school in Los Angeles. How freaking cool is that? Fuck. Sorry. I’m sure you don’t care. Oh wait. Can you even swear on Craigslist? Is that against the rules or whatever? Anyway, like I said, I desperately need a roommate. I live in a 2 bedroom apartment in Harlem. Your rent would be 900 a month and we’d split the utilities.

    Here’s my phone number if you’re interested or want a tour or whatever: (XXX) XXX - XXXX

    (pls don’t be creepy)

    Edited on May 2nd, 9:32 AM: (Apparently this needs to be said, but being creepy includes sending me dick pics at 2am. Yes, I’m calling you out Dave. You woke up my dog. Fuck you. Oh wait, to everyone else, I forgot to mention I have a pup in my original post? So uh if you’re allergic, you probably won’t wanna live with me. His name is Teddy though and he's very cute!)
