    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

    "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 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

    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

    Eliot showers him with praise and prizes him apart gently, like wrapping paper he’s planning on saving on Christmas Morning. Margo’s more of a tear into her gifts person, leaving carnage behind all over the floor. He’s beginning to recalibrate to this slower, sweeter reckoning, would really enjoy it if Eliot slapped him while calling him ‘sweetheart’. Do they make a Hallmark card for something like that?

He’s created a careful life apart, in Kampala, where he can help people in need while staying tucked away from the rest of the world. Quentin isn’t planning on falling in love again, but with Ted’s encouragement he’ll let himself get close to the captivating, unusual Eliot— until a spectre from his past threatens discovery, shattering the safety that he’s so carefully created. Will Quentin’s secret tear them apart?

    Summary

    Life would be so much easier if Quentin could occasionally just calm the fuck down and do what he's told. Unfortunately, his "calm the fuck down" button is broken, so sometimes Eliot's got to pull out some tricks.

    Eliot sighed, watching Quentin stack papers with a thunderous frown. He knew that Quentin's inability to sub consistently was as frustrating for him as it was for Eliot. It wasn't that he related, per se, but he could understand the appeal of subbing out for someone like Quentin, in the same way that the feeling of being trusted, of holding someone in his hands and helping them to fly, was satisfying to Eliot in his heart, in his soul, in his bones.
