    Summary

    Julia shook her head, falling back against the couch, her eyes screwing shut. “I was indestructible. Now I’m dead.”

    “You’re not dead,” said a soft, familiar voice. “You’re ascending.”

    Julia’s eyes snapped open, her jaw dropping when she saw Our Lady Underground sitting calmly next to her. “You,” Julia said, feeling like her heart had stopped beating. Which, it had, because she was dead. Right?

    “You died,” Julia said. “I saw—”

    “—what I needed you to see.” Our Lady Underground’s voice was that same patient, calming tone it always was. “I’m sorry. It was necessary.”

    “Necessary for what?”Julia asked, glancing at Penny. His eyes were as wide as she imagined hers were, his gaze darting between them. “What do you mean, I’m ascending? How can I be ascending when I’m dead?”

    “You’re not dead, Julia,” she said again. “You made your choice. This is your journey. It always has been.”

    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

    What if Quentin survived the monster, saved by a friend and was hospitalized but no one came to check on him? What would he do? Angst with a Happy Ending. Soulmates. I would love to know what you think even if you don't like it. Sorry for bad English.

    Summary

    “You need a hobby,” Julia says, two sandwiches and a cup of coffee later. Quentin has graduated to a sort of slumped but upright position on the couch. He already wants to lie back down. “Something that’ll get you out of the house.”

    “What if I don’t want to leave the house,” Quentin says, but it’s mostly for show. He’s been doing this for a month, of course he’s tired of it. It’s just that he’s tired of everything else too.

     

    or, Quentin goes to group therapy.

    Summary

    Life goes on and they all try their best to make the most of it. But life, or death, is never that easy.

    Quentin was ready to move on, but now that he is in Heaven he cannot shake the feeling that he doesn't belong there. He had the death changing realisation of the meaning behind the mosaic. The beauty of all life. And he will do whatever he must to mend what he broke. After all, his discipline is Minor Mending. Meanwhile, Eliot's pain has evolved into something much more powerful that he ever though possible, but he should have seen it coming. After all, magic comes from pain. The rest of the gang are looking for a way to be re-united, but they will find out more than what they were looking for in their search.

    (Or the fanfic where I continue the series because I kinda liked Eliot's journey in Season 5 but they all deserve to be together. And let's be honest... Quentin dying is the shittiest thing ever.)
    PS: No need to have watched season 5 to follow this, everything that you would need to know it's quoted and explained

    Summary

    “I found something,” Quentin said. “In Eliot’s room.”

    Across the table, Julia’s face shifted in the gloom. They hadn’t bothered with a warming enchantment tonight, not a single orb of magic light bobbing overhead. There in the dark with their jackets pulled on. Like they were back in undergrad, just the two of them. Like they didn’t have magic at all.

    In spite of the chill, a heat had found him. Sweeping over the apples of Quentin’s cheeks in brilliant scarlet whorls. He watched as Julia pinched her brows together, eying him from where she sat.

    “Okay,” she said, dragging the word out long. “You wanna elaborate on that, Q?”

    OR

    What comes after.

    Summary

    Quentin is, of course, still curled in a ball when Eliot glides down beside him. He moves slowly so as not to spook the poor thing, and it takes three gentle coughs from his throat before Quentin finally lifts his head from his hands, blinking at Eliot with a blank expression.

    Eliot gives him a small, hopefully genial smile. “Mind if I join you?”

    “Oh, Jesus Christ.” Quentin rolls his eyes back and slams his head into the wall.

    Eliot Waugh has been captivated by Quentin Coldwater since the moment their eyes first met. Unfortunately, their eyes first met while Eliot was hooking up with Quentin’s boyfriend.

    It’s not exactly Casablanca.

    Summary

    A series of scenes following the season 4 finale. Warning: NOT A RESURRECTION FIC. Basically, this was my half baked idea of how they might do (part of) a season 5 where they kept the permadeath but still made use of Jason Ralph.

    Summary

    i’ve been told that writing a letter is supposed to be cathartic. something about saying the things i never said and, in some cases, still can’t say out loud. the unspoken and the unspeakable. that’s what everyone’s been saying. i know that what they really mean is that it’s supposed to help me move on, though.

    i don’t think i want to. not yet.

    Summary

    He doesn’t care that Julia became the undisputed Queen of Brakebills basically overnight. He doesn’t care about her new group of friends who hate him, or her ultra-rare discipline, or her mentorship with the dean. That’s not what any of this is about.

    Friends don’t date exes. They don’t keep the ‘dating-your-ex’ secret for two straight months. They don’t wait for you to find out on your own, in the middle of the day, in the middle of campus, and humiliate yourself in front of everyone.

    But Quentin has new friends now— and they don’t fight clean.

    (Brakebills, but make it Mean Girls.)

    Summary

    Quentin Coldwater is trying to figure out what he wants from life. Everyone around him seems to be stepping off into adulthood with career success and personal accomplishments; his childhood best friend is even getting married. And then there’s the Eliot of it all— Eliot Waugh, Quentin’s friend, confidant, found family member... who he’s been sleeping with for the better part of a year. Eliot’s the only person in Quentin’s life not trying to push him in one direction or the other, but it may turn out that Eliot’s the person he wants to build his future around after all.

    Summary

    PAUSED TEMPORARILY FOR RE-WRITING!!!
    -//-
    "He was standing at the end of my bed, I was sure of it. Waiting for me to shake off the pretense of sleep and rise. I could feel his eyes on my bare skin, and hear the soft brush of his inhalations in the dark. And I couldn't rise, couldn't roll over and look up at him in the dark. I was paralyzed by the longing to meet him, by the wanting to be touched, to be kissed. I wanted it so badly I knew I could never have it. And as the moments drew out into long minutes I somehow drifted to sleep again, and awoke to the same soft shushings of breath, only to realize I was hearing the breeze pull the sheer panel of the curtains out the French window and another breeze pulling it back in again from some other opening across the house.
    Gods, I wanted him...And wanted him to want me."

    Somewhere in Northern Italy, Quentin Coldwater's obsessive focus on solving a millennia old mystery unexpectedly shifts to his host's mercurial nephew, Eliot.

    Summary

    "Where are we?" Julia asks. The brightness has faded a little and now she looks, the room is something similar to her childhood living room. Her gaze catches on the sofa where a younger version of herself and Q are sitting, heads pressed close together as they read together. Fillory and Further, of course.

    Q drifts over to take a seat next to his younger self, and Julia does the same. "You already know."

    Julia closes her eyes and tries to get her head on straight. Head. The monster... "We're in my head."

    (or: Julia Wicker saves herself from possession because f*ck that noise)

    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

    It's easy for Quentin to figure out that he's bi. It's not quite as straightforward to figure out why, most of the time, he doesn't seem to want anyone at all anyway.

    And even when he has a word for it, even when he knows there's nothing actually wrong, the trouble of only being able to want under specific circumstances means knowing what to do about a crush on one of your best friends is even more daunting. Especially when it's not going away this time.

    Summary

    My sister says, It takes a long time to really feel like someone’s gone. I think that’s where the idea of ghosts comes from — this thing that’s there, even though it’s not really there.

    But you were always there even when you weren’t there. If the house of my heart is haunted now, it’s because you lived there, too.

    Summary

    He’d thought that his feelings for Quentin would diminish. A longer half life than normal, but fading nonetheless. But he’d had to actively push Quentin from his mind, working at losing him piece by piece (—two rivers, a continent— he thinks), but it was work, an active extrication, dulled by alcohol and drugs and sun-soaked, over-waxed men. It had taken time and the death of brain cells, his sobriety and losing the life he’d tried to build—

    —but Eliot is sure, as soon as Quentin walks into his patisserie, that all of that resistance, the repeated acts of forgetting, was for nothing.

    **Fic is incomplete. Abandoned.**
