    Summary

    Eliot Waugh can't give up on the chance he had with the man he loves. No one really did get proof of concept like that. If Alice could come back from being a niffin, if Penny 23 could hop timelines, if Julia could become a goddess, if every other redemption was possible, then was his own. One way or another he'd find his way back to Q.

    Summary

    By the time Eliot is back in his body and is released from the infirmary, Quentin is still asleep.

     

    No, not asleep. Quentin is still in a coma. And Eliot put him there. The horrifying part, the part that pierces into him like barbed wire around his heart, his lungs, his abused liver... the part that makes him feel like he's made of electrical fencing, is that he remembers all of it.

     

    He remembers every mark the Monster made on Quentin: every cut, every puncture, every punch, every burn. He remembers the feel of Quentin's bones breaking under the grip of his hands. He remembers the taste of Quentin's blood, as the Monster dragged Eliot's tongue over the open wounds he had imprinted into Quentin's skin with a shard of glass. He remembers the sounds Quentin made, broken moans and agonized cries. He remembers the choking and retching when Quentin started coughing up blood, and he remembers Quentin begging, begging for Eliot to wake up, to please wake up so the Monster couldn't hurt him anymore.

     

     

    ____

     

    The Monster took Quentin hostage and tortured him for a month. The boys both have a lot of healing to do.

    Summary

    Quentin and his daemon save themselves, and as soon as they're strong enough, they run far, far away from everyone they once called friends. They believe they're unwelcome, and are too hurt and angry to want a welcome anyway. So they plan to vanish and start again, alone but for each other, convinced they can rely on no one else.

    But it turns out running away is never that simple.

    Summary

    Are they forever going to be crashing through each other’s lives like this? They can’t quite seem to converge without a stomach-swerving sort of chaos—not in this world, in this timeline. Certainly not intentionally and mutually, or without shame, regret and shouldn’t haves. So many mistakes that surely didn’t add up to anything worth learning from. Because of course he shouldn’t have slept with Eliot and he shouldn’t look at him either. Not the way he wants to. The way he knows he always has, even when Alice was right there, sharp-eyed and silent, watching Quentin want things he couldn’t have. 

    Quentin never has been very good at stopping himself from wanting.

    Or: Quentin and Eliot have a lot to work out before they can find their way back to one another. And then a whole lot more after that.

    Summary

    This wasn’t some grand otherworldly battle. It was just New York at night.

    Quentin sighed and looked up at the man on the stoop. “I’m not loitering. I didn’t know… I was just…” He gestured weakly over his shoulder at the bakery across the street. “But I don’t have any money so.” He shrugged pathetically. “Sorry if I wandered onto your turf.”

    He shook his head and turned away. Who was he kidding? There was no hero-king-quester left. Just the shadow. He couldn’t be a hero, he couldn’t be a badass. He couldn’t even hold a coherent conversation with a fellow magician. His head hung low as he walked away. He pulled up his already soaked hood and let it hang uselessly over his eyes.

    “I don’t have any money either,” the Sorcerer Supreme said, and Quentin stopped. “I used to but… Wong’s a bad influence.”

    “Ok,” said Quentin. He didn’t get it.

    “But I have tea.”


    a.ka. The story in which Quentin Coldwater and Doctor Strange open a gift shop together because times are tough right now and we all need a friend.

    Summary

    When he thinks about it later, millions of miles down the road, Quentin can almost picture the golden line of his fate taking an abrupt 180 degree turn in the opposite direction away from a life of quiet normality. A wife and a child. He would have run a small shop in an even smaller town. Selling toys and penny candy like his father before him. A good life. A small life.

    But then Quentin went and joined the circus.

    Summary

    Quentin didn’t die in the mirror realm; he woke up in the hospital beside the one person he wanted to see more than anyone else. Unfortunately, Eliot couldn’t find the courage to tell Quentin he loved him after all.

    Fresh from a breakup with Alice and armed with a new apartment and a therapist, Quentin reluctantly moved on with his life.

    ‘Twas the night before Christmas Eve when Eliot stepped back through the portal from Fillory after many long months spent worlds apart. And this time, he had a plan to set everything right.

    A holiday reimagining of what happened after season four, with a guest appearance by Santa Claus himself.

    Summary

    It’s Elliot's impassioned plea before the Grecian pantheon of gods that is the straw that breaks the camel's back.

    Margo had managed to get the questers an audience with the pantheon, through methods which she had refused to disclose. Anytime someone, even Eliot, would ask how on earth she had done it, her only answer was a raised eyebrow and a quip that someone had needed to grow a pussy around there and do something to get their baby Q back.

    Standing before the pantheon, everyone was more than a little worried about how this would all turn out - given their track record with gods and all - but it was for Quentin. They all owed it to him to at the very least try. And so they swallowed their fear, pushed it to the back of their mind, or stuffed it down and turned it into fire because if there was one thing the questers were entirely sure of - this was not going to be easy. Nothing had ever been easy for them and there was no reason to expect, at all, that this long shot of an opportunity would be any different.

    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

    Ted comes home to find his parents gone and a strange woman who tells him she needs his help to save New Fillory. With his world dissolving into nothingness, he will embark on a quest to unlock a strange deck of cards in order to help her save the future. But the search for the cards won't be easy, and playing with time magic can have irreversible consequences. He will need to get to know this new timeline, and its characters, in order to be successful and save them all.

    Or the excuse I needed to have Teddy meeting Quentin and Eliot (and the rest of the gang) from our current timeline.

    (Continuation of 'The Other Side', although it could be read on its own if you fancy)

    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

    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
