    Summary

    Eliot Waugh lives a shitty life as a bartender, struggling to pay his rent in New York, with his best friend, the former socialite Margo Hanson.

    That is, until he meets a wealthy man who looks exactly like him called Nigel, claiming to be his twin brother separated at birth, with the irresistible offer to switch lives for one night.

    What could go wrong, right?

    Summary

    Eliot Waugh is the Prince of Brakebills University, living without a care in the world. That is, until his platonic soulmate finds love, thanks to his definitely-not-unintentional matchmaking. It was a big change, but all’s well that ends well and he’s… happy for Margo and Julia. You know. Mostly.

    But no one likes a renowned hedonist who focuses on his inner maudlin blah. So instead, Eliot opts to invest his energy into taking a new girl under his wing. She's dorky, intense, fresh off a year-long sojourn at Brakebills South...and in desperate need of fun.

    What a lucky young lady that Alice Quinn is.

    (Or: Unabashedly Silly, Sparkly, and Queer “Emma,” at Brakebills.)

    Summary

    “Well,” Quentin began, fast, his hands on his knees. “Julia has been my standing plus-one for formal events since we were like, eleven, because she’s like, really good at them and I’m not really, and my whole family really likes her and everything but, uh, she’s busy next Saturday with Kady doing some hedgewitch...organizational….stuff, right—and like, I forgot to ask her about this until yesterday anyway because to be honest it kinda slipped my mind between school stuff and life stuff and, you know, uh, stuff—and I think it would be kinda….difficult to ask Alice at this point, right?—but I really don’t want to go solo to something like this, especially since I like, dropped off the grid for like—”

    “Q?”

    Quentin sighed. “My cousin is getting married and I need a date?” He smiled a guilty grimace of a smile, and shrugged. “To the wedding, I mean.”

    Summary

    Wednesday Night Trivia Rule 1: The person in charge of choosing the team name will rotate on a weekly basis in alphabetical order. That week’s decider can only be overruled by a unanimous vote from the rest of the team (per the March 2018 addendum).

    He lets the group chat know he’s there, checks them in with the Quizmaster as To Be Perfectly Queer, (because he’s at least self-aware at this point in his life) and heads to the bar.
    And immediately runs into Eliot.
    Thankfully not literally this time.

    Or: the one where no one has magic and Quentin and Eliot are just normal thirty-somethings who play on opposing Pub Trivia teams and they get to fall in love like real people dammit
