    Summary

    It’s so ludicrous how they got where they are now.
    “Marina, why did you stay?”
    She looks up at him, her expression suddenly serious, “I can’t tell you.” She cups his face and whispers, “Because you know why, you know the answer.”
    Eliot nods, pressing his lips to her palm, “Yes, I do know.”
    Marina smiles and tangles her other hand in the locks at the back of his neck, “But you still need to believe it.”

    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 have a third rule. But it didn't need reiterating, Margo and Eliot came first. They were a unit.
    They kept 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 does present? Far later than most magical adepts, in the middle of the cottage sitting room?
    *Previously titled Treacherous, reposted due to edits*

    Summary

    Quentin starts the night playing card tricks and ends the night playing something else.

    “I love it when you get like this,” Quentin says when Eliot whines and wiggles his hips. “You want it all, and you try to take it, but you can’t because I haven’t given it to you yet. You show me everything that’s going on in your head, and I love it. I get this side of you that nobody else sees. Well, besides Margo, but that’s Margo, your Bambi. And that’s ok, I can share you with her. But so much of this is mine because you let me see it, and I’ve never been luckier in my life. Tell me, El, tell me what you want.”

    Summary

    PAUSED TEMPORARILY FOR RE-WRITING!!!
    -//-
    "He was standing at the end of my bed, I was sure of it. Waiting for me to shake off the pretense of sleep and rise. I could feel his eyes on my bare skin, and hear the soft brush of his inhalations in the dark. And I couldn't rise, couldn't roll over and look up at him in the dark. I was paralyzed by the longing to meet him, by the wanting to be touched, to be kissed. I wanted it so badly I knew I could never have it. And as the moments drew out into long minutes I somehow drifted to sleep again, and awoke to the same soft shushings of breath, only to realize I was hearing the breeze pull the sheer panel of the curtains out the French window and another breeze pulling it back in again from some other opening across the house.
    Gods, I wanted him...And wanted him to want me."
    ---
    Somewhere in Northern Italy, Quentin Coldwater's obsessive focus on solving a millennia old mystery unexpectedly shifts to his host's mercurial nephew, Eliot.

    Summary

    “This is not how I expected the evening to go, I’ll tell you that much. I came out here to get stinking drunk and black out the bleak reality of my continued existence for a mere moment or two, and instead you want to know why I never asked you to sexually dominate me?”

    (The night before Eliot’s graduation, Quentin has a burning question: “How come you never asked me?”)

    Summary

    It’s Elliot's impassioned plea before the Grecian pantheon of gods that is the straw that breaks the camel's back.

    Margo had managed to get the questers an audience with the pantheon, through methods which she had refused to disclose. Anytime someone, even Eliot, would ask how on earth she had done it, her only answer was a raised eyebrow and a quip that someone had needed to grow a pussy around there and do something to get their baby Q back.

    Standing before the pantheon, everyone was more than a little worried about how this would all turn out - given their track record with gods and all - but it was for Quentin. They all owed it to him to at the very least try. And so they swallowed their fear, pushed it to the back of their mind, or stuffed it down and turned it into fire because if there was one thing the questers were entirely sure of - this was not going to be easy. Nothing had ever been easy for them and there was no reason to expect, at all, that this long shot of an opportunity would be any different.

    Summary

    At any rate, it’s obvious to Eliot that Quentin wishes he were the one having prophetic dreams.
