    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, Martin's undercover plan gets a little delayed, and relationships of all kinds shift and change. As for Quentin? That garden path is diverging under his feet, even before he gets a little help from elsewhere.

    Part of a series but can be mostly read as a standalone.

    Summary

    A story in multiple parts.

    In the beginning, Eliot is old. His life really hasn't gone as planned, not unexpectedly--we know how Eliot is. But, as it turns out, there's a way to fix things, to revise his life. And Margo knows what's best for him; she really does. Even if he doesn't know it himself.

    When he reaches Quentin, things aren't as simple as they seem. When you're two people at once in a world that seems entirely un-magical, nothing is really ever simple.

    And Quentin, as we know is never a simple human to deal with. His protective friend has a lot of things to say when she finds out he's been seduced by Eliot Waugh, talented fashion student and total disaster human that no one should trust.

    It turns out there was a reason Eliot was able to come here, and it's just like everything in his life--completely fucking tragic and complicated. But things slowly start to shift sideways, and there's hope in the strangest of places, and perhaps, magic as well.

    This is a story with: a whole bunch of feelings, explicit sex scenes because that's how I do, lots of Queliot, all the Queliot, characters slightly OC sometimes just because it's a different universe and there are no rules.

    Summary

    Here’s my art for the fic by @lilyaceofdiamonds for the @themagicianshhe challenge. What a year it’s been, and I am super great full I got to spend time working on creating artwork for this show. I love the characters and their variety of styles and expressions. I did try to do something different from my normal work, and I was actually pretty pleased with how it came out. The colors are way different and the style is a complete departure, so it was super fun to work on these pieces. I hope you guys have fun seeing this crew in a different setting. 😎✌💖💖💖💖

    Summary

    "Peaches or plums?" a voice called out to Quentin.
    "What?" Quentin responded, a feeling of deja-vu washing over him.
    "I said," the man began, "Do you want peaches or plums?".
    Quentin blinked at the man in front of him.

    ---------------

    Quentin is half-way through his first year at Brakebills University and hasn't had much luck at making friends, let alone at finding love. Then, he meets Eliot.

    OR A non-magic College AU where Eliot and Quentin fall in love... eventually.

    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.

    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

    Here he was, at Hogwarts. Quentin had dreamed of being a student here forever. He could feel the magic thrumming in the air, could see it in the lights twinkling in the ceiling.

    He felt a tickle on the back of his neck, and he looked to the table of green and silver ties. Quentin forced himself to not look to the ground, and his brown eyes locked with a set of hazel ones. Even at this distance, he could see the intensity within, a sparkle of excitement as they swept over him, head to foot and back up again. Quentin’s breath hitched and he wiped his suddenly damp palms on his robes.

    Hazel Eyes also had full dark hair, short, wavy and slightly mussed, with a stray curl or two falling over his forehead. Quentin took in his strong jaw, full lips, a tiny cleft in his chin, and a slightly loosened tie peeking out above the neck of his robe. He exuded the kind of effortless, lazy sexiness that Quentin knew he couldn’t embody in one finger on his best day.

    Hazel Eyes made no attempt to hide his appraisal of Quentin. A slow smile spread across his lips as he stared back at him, his look full of promise and intent that Quentin wasn’t sure he could handle. But I sure would love to try, Quentin thought.

    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

    Quentin Coldwater had died. Well, almost. All of his friends are glad to hear that he returned intact--except he wasn't. Something went wrong. Quentin wasn't Quentin anymore. Eliot Waugh is still pining for him, but has to watch as Quentin doesn't even regard Alice romantically anymore. Meanwhile, Julia is figuring out how to handle her emotions and use them to her advantage. The group has to find a way to get Quentin's shade back before he realizes his full and not so benevolent potential. Is this the origin of a darker timeline or can Quentin be returned to a state of completeness by those that love him?

    Or the fic in which Q is a dick but in a kind of funny antagonistic way and everyone else is stressed out.

    (This is a very rough draft. I WILL be revising it in the future and adding more content.)

    Summary

    Eliot Waugh seemingly has everything he needs— work he believes in, world travel, and most importantly he has Margo, his best friend and his rock. A temporary assignment in Kampala, Uganda, however, may upend Eliot’s world—including his habitually casual love life—when he meets Quentin Coldwater, a soft-spoken, mysterious young doctor to whom he is irrevocably drawn.

    Quentin Coldwater is guarding a secret, one that separates him from everyone but Ted, his oldest and dearest friend. 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?

    This is a story of two people with complex pasts taking risks, great and small, for a powerful and unexpected love.
