Fandoms: The Magicians (TV)
21 Apr 2019
Let me tell you a fucking fairytale.
Let me tell you a story in which two men- two Kings, two magicians, two best friends- fall in love, despite the obstacles between them, and it's the easiest and hardest thing in the world.
Eliot is fucking terrified of love. Makes sense, honestly- look at what he's been left with, everyone he's watched die, everyone who's left him. Quentin's got the opposite problem. He loves too easily, gives his heart out without thinking about the consequences.
Eliot's a coward; Quentin's too brave. They balance each other out, a bit. They break each other, a bit.
But at the end of the day, Eliot and Quentin are best friends made for each other. They are each other's confidant, best friend, lover. They were parents and Kings and magicians and schoolmates and questers together.
These two men, broken and self-destructive and dedicated and so heroic in their own ways, deserve a happy ending. They deserve not to die in vain, to spend months trapped in their own minds, searching for a way to each other.
They deserve an escape. They deserve not to die.
