    Summary

    Alternately titled: The Trans!Q AU fic that two (2) people asked for
    (Title very obviously from Shake it Off by Taylor Swift)

    “That morning had been relatively normal. It’s a weekday, Shot Day unfortunately enough, so Q took care of that then let James and Julia walk him to his uni interview. They act like a couple, because they are, and he skulks behind them. He has a paper due tomorrow. But it’s all normal, so boringly routine. Barely even worth noting at this point. Mischief managed, right? Except the first thing they hear is Julia’s scream because surprise surprise, there’s a gorram corpse in the guy’s living room. And the day can only get better from here.”

    Summary

    "Do you remember where you were burned?”

    “Julia, spit it out, please.”

    Julia does not spit it out, as it happens. What she does is help Quentin sit up so he can see his feet. Or, rather, his foot, because where the lower part of his left leg should be making a lump under the blankets, there is nothing at all.

    Quentin survives the blast in the Mirror Realm, but at the cost of half his leg. In the aftermath, he's sent off to recover, but the thing is, he's not sure if anyone is really going to want him to come back now.

    As for Eliot? Well, first he has to find out what actually even happened.

    Summary

    Eliot Waugh is the Prince of Brakebills University, living without a care in the world. That is, until his platonic soulmate finds love, thanks to his definitely-not-unintentional matchmaking. It was a big change, but all’s well that ends well and he’s… happy for Margo and Julia. You know. Mostly.

    But no one likes a renowned hedonist who focuses on his inner maudlin blah. So instead, Eliot opts to invest his energy into taking a new girl under his wing. She's dorky, intense, fresh off a year-long sojourn at Brakebills South...and in desperate need of fun.

    What a lucky young lady that Alice Quinn is.

    (Or: Unabashedly Silly, Sparkly, and Queer “Emma,” at Brakebills.)

    Summary

    “That was the crux of it all, in the end. The reason for everything he was doing, everything he’s done for the past so many months. It was all to keep Eliot alive. He’d played along with Monster’s games, stood up to him when he was going overboard with the drugs, stood his ground when the Monster was willing to kill him over it, because if that’s what it took to save Eliot then so be it. Eliot was all that mattered.”

    This is my fix-it fic for the 4x13 finale. Quentin does not die and Queliot is life!

    Summary

    She’s always been there. Somehow. It’s hard to know where one story ends and the other begins. Jane and Quentin. A stable time loop, an inevitability, two souls tied up together in the same story.

    He barely knows her, but at the same time he knows all about her, and she knows all about every version of him.
