    Summary

    Quentin feels like he’s in mourning, in his own widower’s blacks somewhere deep underground. It hurts with every fibre in his being, but he musters up whatever inadequate bravery he still had inside him that didn't get left with the people he loves, and looks up at the screen.

    And then Eliot adjusts his grip on the peach, staring into the fire with an identical flame in his eyes. “No,” he says instead, “fuck this.”

    Quentin drops the mug, Eliot takes a bite of the peach, and the earth shakes beneath their feet.

    or, Julia and Eliot refuse to let this be the end.

    Summary

    Quentin’s back from the dead and recovering and everything’s fine. Of course, no one seems to know exactly how he made it back, and he can’t shake the feeling that he’s forgotten something important, and he’s really not sure what’s going on with him and Eliot lately…

    ------

    Summary

    On the tablet Eliot saw a webpage from the New York Daily News, and at the top was a picture of an old woman, holding her own death certificate and smiling. The headline said, "DEAD RISE AGAIN IN QUEENS, BROOKLYN."

    Margo said, "You bitches better sober up, because this is a massive goddamn problem, and it just might get us our friend back."

    Summary

    Post-finale fix-it: Fillory Deeper & Harder, the S4 canon-compliant season 5 Queliot fans deserve.

    In which Eliot's marginally less afraid of commitment, Quentin is less clueless than he used to be, & Margo is a sassy alpha bitch.

    There's sex magicky shenanigans, a giant turtle, talking pegasi, and a plot to overthrow the Dark King and reclaim Fillory, all done Queliot-style.

    Soon, all will be well in the world.

    COMPLETE.

    Note: This belongs to the same verse (The Peaches Verse) as "Sound & Color", but the two works are entirely independent.
