    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

    It is stupid and dangerous, and yeah it is, but to Quentin, it is worth it. It is worth everything to get Eliot back. Worth his life, worth magic, all of it. But, it doesn't work. He doesn't even know what happened to Eliot, if the Monster is still there or if Eliot was even okay.

     
    You don't deserve to know.

     

    He tells himself.

     

    It's your fault, it's your fault, it's your fault.

     
    He knows this, they all know this. So Quentin disappears.

    Summary

    "So, um, what are you stealing me for?" he asked, letting Eliot go up the stairs first.

    "Margo and I are planning for Encanto Oculto and need some of your input. If you're still interested in going."

    "Okay. Um, I am still. Interested."

    Summary

    Finally, Eliot says, “Quentin.” He turns to look him in the eye, his face settling into a casual smile. “We’re friends, right? We know each other pretty well?”

    “Ye-es?” Quentin says.

    “And you’re a brave boy,” Eliot says. “Open to delving into the unknown. Looking for your next great adventure.”

    “I, uh.” That isn’t how Quentin would normally describe himself, but somehow — with Eliot’s hazel eyes shining at him, the full force of his warm, encouraging energy focused on Quentin’s face — he sits up a little straighter, and says, “Sure, I guess.”

    “Great,” Eliot says brightly, “so how would you like to pretend we’re dating for a week so we can get into the most secretive magical couples’ party of the modern era?”

    Summary

    ... no one is coming for him, if he is going to get out he’ll have to save himself. And if he does get out, he can never go back, because there is no place for him there anymore. He can’t imagine they’d even want him, and he has no interest in pity or obligation. 

    If he gets out, they’re never going to know.

    Quentin escapes the Underworld, and finds himself in Narnia. But, having seen his friends let him go and move on, he believes there's no point in trying to get back, and settles down where he is. But his past is not done with him yet, as he learns when a window opens between Narnia and New Fillory...

    Summary

    Instead of magic, Quentin finds drugs.

    As a low-level seller, errand-runner, and prostitute for mob lieutenant Marina Andrieski, Quentin’s life kind of sucks, at least partly because he also snitches for his friend/police handler Julia Wicker. He stays high to deal with the stress, but when he meets mob boss Eliot Waugh, and girls in the neighborhood start to go missing, things get a little too real.

    Summary

     

    Set in a world where they're just regular magic college students. My working title for this was Quentin Coldwater; high maintenance sub and Eliot Waugh; doting service top and I feel like that's all you need to know, really, because it sure aint like there's any plot to see here.
