    Summary

    Quentin has a problem, and he only has himself to blame- no, that’s not true. It’s partly Eliot’s fault for being stupidly well-endowed, and it’s mainly Penny’s fault for being an insufferable prick who loves making him miserable. And the evening had started so well.

    ---

    The one where Quentin brags about things he didn’t do, it bites him (metaphorically) in the ass, and he still gets a damn good night out of it.

    Summary

    Quentin rarely tells the whole story when he writes home about his fosterage. Once he gets a phone and friends to text with, his storytelling flair grows exponentially.

    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

    “Holy shit,” Julia says. She lets her bag drop to the floor, her eyes wide as she walks around the statue. “Q, this is amazing. I knew you had talent from the stuff you made at Columbia, but this—wow.”

    “Thanks,” Quentin says tightly. He looks over the sculpture, trying to imagine seeing it with Julia’s eyes. All he sees are the imperfections—the cracks in the clay that he needs to fill, the indentations of his fingers he needs to smooth out, or the malformed spots he needs to revisit. But when he strips all that away and imagines that someone else made it, that a stranger’s hands spent so many hours recreating the love of his life—he can admit it’s the best thing he’s ever made.

    “Who is he?” Julia asks. “I don’t think I’ve met him. Pretty sure I would remember.”

    “You remember a couple of months ago, I told you I kept dreaming about a guy?”

    “Yeah? He’s—” She looks at the sculpture, and then back to Quentin. “No way. He’s real? You met him?” Her eyes are wide, a smile starting to form on her face.

    “Not exactly,” Quentin says.

    A Queliot fanfiction, with a Pygmalion twist.

    Summary

    “Tell you what,” Eliot says with a smile that sends a shiver down Quentin’s spine. “I’ll go jet skiing. If you agree to go out dancing tomorrow night.”

    Quentin frowns, looking down. “Why do you want me to go out dancing? You know I’m—”

    Now Eliot is the one rolling his eyes. “So you’ve said. ‘A horrible dancer.’”

    He takes a step closer, and Quentin forces himself to stay in place, even as his heart picks up speed and his eyes flicker up to Eliot’s chest.

    “I want to go out dancing and I want you to come with me. And I want you,” Eliot says, and Quentin’s eyes snap up to his face. He’s staring down at Quentin, his eyes a darker shade of amber as his mouth pulls up into a smile that Quentin instantly remembers from many dark nights at the mosaic. “To dance with me. Deal?”

    Quentin holds his breath as he stares back, his mind reeling with Is this a date? Is he asking me on a date? Of course not, don’t be— “Yes,” he finally chokes out. “I’ll go dancing. If you go out on a jet ski with me.”

    Eliot takes a step back, becoming more relaxed. “Deal,” he says. “Now let’s pack up our shit and go rent a jet ski.”

    The gang goes on vacation. They deserve one, don’t they?

    Summary

    “I told you,” she says, her eyes fluttering shut as she grinds down, “I’m bored. And I can touch you. You’re the only thing I can touch. That I can use. To alleviate the—boredom.” Her hips keep moving as she speaks, each sentence punctuated with a gasp and a moan. “Mmm, and other things,” she says, sighing.

    Quentin is in love with Eliot and is convinced he can only pine after his best friend from afar.

    Summary

    “Bitch, we are your campus tour,” Margo announces with finality. For a second Quentin's hackles go up, but then – that's not really an insult when another omega says it, right? It seems like in – movies or whatever, omega friends call each other that all the time. Quentin wouldn't know, he's never had an omega friend, and the idea that Margo, with her perfect hair and her fancy eye makeup and her swaying stride in thigh-high boots, could even theoretically be his first kind of beggars belief. It's not like hey, you've been accepted to the magic school you never applied to levels of improbable, but it's – like, whatever's right below that, basically.

    Summary

    Eliot Waugh was not always the spectacular second year student Quentin had the good fortune to meet on his first day at Brakebills. “Self-made” for better or worse, fits Eliot to the T, and the beginning of everything he was and became, started in Indiana.

    It started with the new girl.

    Summary

    “You’re trying to do that thing to me.”

    “What thing?”

    “That thing where you say you’re a bad kisser so that I want to find out—or so that I do find out. It’s like when college girls say they have nipple rings.”

    “I don’t know,” said Quentin—not no, and also not I don’t know what you’re talking about. He lolled his head back again, looking at the ceiling so that he didn’t have to see the expression on Eliot’s face as he asked, “Do you?”

    “Do I what—want to find out?”

    Or: A handful of weeks into Quentin's first semester at Brakebills, a bit of frantic, power-play making out was inevitable.

    Summary

    “Took you long enough—” the Adonis in a button-down says, his words dying in his throat as he locks eyes with Quentin. His shirt is dark green with gold paisley swirling around it, bringing out the tiny gold flecks in his hazel eyes. The first few buttons are undone, giving Quentin a peek of sharp collarbones (god he wants to lick them) and a tease of chest hair that Quentin is already imagining running his fingers through.

    He’s a head taller than Quentin, the perfect height for Quentin to nestle right into his graceful neck, drag his tongue over his pulse point and bite and nibble up to his strong jaw. A smattering of stubble over his face gives him a roguish air, and Quentin wonders what it would feel like against his lips.

    “S—Sorry,” Quentin says, clutching at the strap of his messenger bag. Okay, so he’s gorgeous, so what, get your shit together. You’re here to fuck his—FIX, fix his water heater, god.

    Summary

    “I’m sorry you had to go through that,” Quentin says, his eyes flickering down to Eliot’s throat, to the chest hair peeking out above the top buttons he’d left undone. The boat sways gently on the river.

    “I’m not,” Eliot says, pulling himself up into a sitting position, shifting Quentin’s foot out of his lap and next to him. “I’m very happy here. Some people need their families to become who they’re supposed to be. And there’s nothing wrong with that,” he says, his gaze flickering down to Quentin’s lips and then back up to his eyes. “But there are other ways to do it.”

    “Are there?” Quentin asks, leaning forward. “Can you show me?”

    Summary

    He circles around him, taking him in from every angle. “I never got to do what I wanted to. With your body.” He stops, looking back up at his face. “Do you have a name?”

    The Monster looks at Quentin curiously. “Not that I remember,” he says. “Do you have a game to play?”

    Quentin smiles at him. “I think I do.”

    Summary

    Quentin is very aware that he isn’t porn’s idea of an impressive Alpha. He’s a nurturer, he’s been informed by more than one cheerfully condescending guidance counselor.

    (“He’s a nurturer,” Eliot sighs blissfully to Margo, all three of them buzzed in the smoke hazy common room. Quentin tucks that away, cheeks warm as he burrows into Eliot’s side and lets himself be distracted by how sparkly Margo’s earrings are.)
