    Summary

    He’d thought that his feelings for Quentin would diminish. A longer half life than normal, but fading nonetheless. But he’d had to actively push Quentin from his mind, working at losing him piece by piece (—two rivers, a continent— he thinks), but it was work, an active extrication, dulled by alcohol and drugs and sun-soaked, over-waxed men. It had taken time and the death of brain cells, his sobriety and losing the life he’d tried to build—

    —but Eliot is sure, as soon as Quentin walks into his patisserie, that all of that resistance, the repeated acts of forgetting, was for nothing.

    **Fic is incomplete. Abandoned.**

    Summary

    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

    "I’ve been thinking about you,” Eliot continues, and Quentin’s heart nearly stops in his chest. Warning bells, sirens, flashing signs—this is not good. Not good.

    “Well—don’t. Stop,” Quentin says. The top few buttons on Eliot's shirt are undone and how is he supposed to just be an adult and say no to this?

    Eliot cracks a small smile, sliding just a little bit closer. "Don't stop?" he says.

    “Eliot—just—please go back to the bar. You don’t really want this.”

    Eliot frowns. “I’m a big boy, Professor,” he says, huffing out a breath. “I know what I want. The question is,” Eliot continues, Quentin holding his breath as Eliot leans into his space, “What do you want?”

    Quentin’s mouth goes dry as his brain spins with acceptable responses. For you to go back to Brakebills and sober up—A nice cold glass of water—A redo of the last five years—An actual responsible adult—but what comes out is, “What I want doesn’t matter.”

    Eliot’s face grows softer, the frown disappearing and his eyes searching Quentin’s face. “It does to me,” he says quietly. Cold fingers encircle Quentin's palm, and he closes his eyes as Eliot slots their fingers together and squeezes.

    Summary

    Penny's eyes widen as he looks back at the pretzel stand. “Oh shit, she’s doing it again.”

    “Doing what?” Eliot asks.

    “Making up a song. In her head. About us.” He watches her intently, then shrugs. “It’s about how hot we are.”

    The Magicians/Crazy Ex-Girlfriend crossover that no one asked for. Not even the gift recipient.

    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

    “Were you and your Penny friends?” he asked.

    Quentin turned away and flung his arm over his face with a sigh.

    “No, not really,” he replied.

    “We were,” Penny said, interrupting the stilted silence. “Me and Quentin, I mean.”

    “Really?” Quentin asked. “How did that happen?”

    “He punched me in the face.”

    Summary

    People were like houses.

    Penny had discovered this at a young age, and then again when he came into his psychic abilities. Some people had cute little houses with tidy lawns and white picket fences and a duck mailbox. Some had scraggly lawns and garages that were crammed full of broken power tools. He learned that some people went through their lives with their doors unlocked, and someone like him could slip right in, and walk around, look in all the drawers and under all the beds and figure them out, simple and quick. There were people who kept themselves locked up tight, with doors and windows barred. Then there were the rare types that would allow someone into the front room, the place for receiving quests that had no real purpose other than providing an image. But the rest of the house was in shambles, and he was not allowed to peek into any of those rooms.
