    Summary

    In a world where only Magicians present with sexual designations, Alphas Margo Hanson and Eliot Waugh have two main rules: no omegas and no undesignated first years.
    Obviously, they did had a third rule. But it didn't need reiterating, Margo and Eliot came first. They were a unit.
    They keep their habit of seducing first year Brakebills boys to presented Betas and Alphas and outside of their own dynamic the duo don't really have friends.
    When first-year Quentin Coldwater shows up all doe-eyed, Eliot is surprised when he worms his way under his skin and Margo can barely admit that she can't get him out of her head. Quentin is mostly oblivious as usual.

    What happens when Margo and Eliot get to know Quentin while waiting for him to present?
    The duo wasn't looking for a regular, let alone a committed third, at least as far as Margo knew.
    What happens when Quentin finally presents? Far later than most magical adepts, in the middle of the cottage sitting room?

    Summary

    “Okay, someone tell me right the fuck now what is going on.” He whirls on Margo and Julia, nearly stumbling again over unfamiliar feet in converse sneakers. “Why am I passed out on the couch? Wearing a reject from Hot Topic’s t-shirt wall, with hair that clearly hasn’t seen conditioner—or even a fucking shower—in far too long? And if I’m in Quentin’s body, then—where the fuck is he?”

    Margo sighs, taking his arm and leading him back to the couch. Julia sits in a yellow chair next to him, across from the couch where he—his body—is laying.

    “It’s a body swap spell,” Margo says bluntly. “Quinn brought us this book, and Q found the spell in it, Julia figured out how to modify it, and now you’re here, in Q’s body, and he’s—” She cuts off, glancing over at Eliot’s body.

    Eliot follows her gaze, and his entire body tensing. “He’s where, Margo?”

    “We’re pretty sure he’s wherever you were,” Julia says, glancing down at the-Eliot-that-isn’t.

     
    What if, while Eliot was possessed by the monster, the gang found a body swap spell? And then used it?

    Summary

    “How -- how the hell -- so magic is actually real?” Quentin splutters. He can’t catch his breath.

    The curl of Eliot’s lips is sharp and beautiful, and Quentin gets the sudden, startling image of battleships sunk on the edge of that smile.

    “Oh, it’s very real.”

    --

    or: "what if they met in group therapy?"

    Eliot is poised to become the next leader of his coven of Hedge Witches, but Margo forces him go to therapy first.

    Quentin’s just trying to keep his head above water. He’s never met anyone who can do magic before.

    And Eliot doesn't mind bringing home a stray, especially a cute one.

    "How's your head, baby?"

    Summary

    Quentin shook out the tension in his hands. He didn’t understand why it wasn’t getting any easier. For days on end he’d been trying to perfect the illumination spell the rest of his fellow First Years had nailed in a matter of hours. But no matter how he tried, Quentin couldn’t seem to make anything more than a spark.

    He didn’t know what was worse: that his discipline was apparently shit at magic, or that he’d been placed in the Physical Kids’ Cottage with his ex-whatever-the-hell-they’d-been-in-undergrad because the administration didn’t know what else to do with him. He couldn’t do shit about the latter, but he figured he could at least try and get the basics of magic down before Dean Fogg realized what a grave mistake he’d made in allowing Quentin into Brakebills to begin with.

    OR

    The one where Quentin and Eliot are exes who had an intense D/s relationship in undergrad.

    Summary

    The first morning after a heat is always a strange one. It takes time to reach full wakefulness, sleep still heavy like a thick, syrupy blanket. Muscles feel pleasantly sore, and every sense is heightened: the sheets feel impossibly soft; the sounds of the house coming alive are comforting in their familiarity; the scent of a satisfied omega is heady and wonderful. Eliot Waugh opens his eyes with a smile already playing about his lips, and stretches languidly, disturbing the arm that's resting over his waist. The wind is still howling outside of the windows, Brakebills' scheduled White Christmas still well underway, but it's warm in his bedroom, in his nest. It always is, but especially after a heat. Warm, and cosy, and safe. Eliot feels so good.


    Eliot has a plan for his life, and he's going to make it happen, come hell or high water. First, he just needs to get Quentin on board...

    Then he needs to figure out how to handle the timeline getting moved up.

    Summary

    The interior of the club is just as... as swanky as the exterior had suggested, and Quentin feels distinctly like a fish out of water as he skirts the edge of the dance floor. He still isn't sure how he got in, why he caught the attention of one of the co-owners, but he does know that that kind of woman is not the kind to be disobeyed. And he does want a drink, if he's going to be sitting here trying to figure out what's so appealing about...

    "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but chains and whips excite me," Rihanna sings over the speakers, and Quentin can't help an amused snort, both at the timing and the song choice.


    Quentin Coldwater ventures out looking for a night on the town, distracting himself from his recent break-up. He gets so much more than he bargained for - but hell, he's not complaining.

    Summary

    Penny and Quentin are back from the dead and Julia has decided it's movie night. The gang can't agree on what to watch. They end up settling on a nice, non-objectionable computer-animated classic. It's for kids, right? What could go wrong?

    Summary

    Quentin wants to sink through the floor. He can feel his neck and his cheeks flare hot, and his eyes skitter away from Eliot’s perceptive gaze. But then Eliot is turning back to the door, and he’s opening it and basically manhandling him through it, which — okay. Apparently is a thing for him as well.

    He has A Thing for tall guys named Eliot who smirks at him and looks at him and manhandles him through doors.

    Okay.

    Okay, he can deal with this.

    He still doesn’t know what he’s doing here, but he can deal with this.

    Because it turns out that tall guys named Eliot are the least of his problems.

    or;

    The one in which Magicians find their Soulmates through different means, and nobody seems to have informed Quentin of this.

    Summary

    "Quentin Coldwater," Eliot says. It's the first time those words have passed his lips in years, and they come out weak, oddly breathless. He white-knuckles the desk in front of him, his arms shaking with the effort of holding himself upright. It's been a struggle ever since he got the phone call. He sucks in a trembling breath and tries again. "Please. Quentin Coldwater. Where is he?"


    Some unchanged paperwork and a couple of assholes give Eliot the second chance he never thought he'd get with Quentin. Now Quentin just needs to give him that second chance, too.

    Summary

    Eliot slides a hand across the back of Q’s neck and squeezes, gently. He’d meant it to be reassuring, grounding, but Quentin - Quentin drops to his knees.

    One time Eliot looks after Quentin. One time Quentin looks after Eliot. All of the ways that is different, and all of the ways it is the same.

    Summary

    Ted offered no advice but immediately let go of Eliot and leaned in to try to hug Quentin. Eliot stopped and scooped up the little boy to rest him on his hip in one arm. He was starting to get just a little too big for being carried and Eliot knew there would come a day they wouldn’t be able to pick him up anymore. But that day wasn’t going to be it.
