    Summary

    “How the fuck did I agree to this?”

    “I think the better question is why didn’t we stop Eliot from knocking Stoppard out,” Julia murmurs, staring down at Stoppard's sleeping body. “That’s definitely something we could have done.”

    Eliot looks over his shoulder at them, his hand slipping from the edge of the window. “Would you two stop wasting time and tell me how to work this fucking thing?” When Penny turns a glare on him, Eliot simply offers a glare right back and motions towards the mirror. “Please.” He adds obligingly, when Julia pointedly raises her eyebrows at him. His hand slowly falls until Penny sighs and moves around him, gently shoving Eliot out of the way.

     

    --

    Or. Eliot uses Stoppards machine to say goodbye to Quentin.

    Summary

    ... Brian counts love in the feel of soft wool under his fingers the same way Quentin does in the taste of plums on his tongue, because those counts come back to the same man, when all is said and done.
     

    In which Brian and Nigel meet, fall in love, and have months together before the Monster shows up. Once his memories are back, Quentin faces the events of season 4 with a second layer of proof of concept lingering in his mind. It only makes the grief sharper, but can it also give him an anchor to hold onto? And what happens when the dust finally settles?

    Summary

    When Alice saw the figure standing there, her first, improbable thought, was Eliot. But, no-- that wasn’t-- it was a young woman. Younger than Alice, even, probably. She had on leather boots that went up to her thighs over leather leggings, and a long, drapey-- Renaissance Fair-style (Fillorian, she hissed inside, you know it’s Fillorian) blouse. Her thick black hair was pushed back over one shoulder and her eyes--

    “Holy shit,” the girl-- woman-- said under her breath, her mouth curling into an uncanny almost-grin, as Alice stared like an idiot.

    “Alice Quinn,” she said suddenly, straightening up to her full height-- taller than Alice. “I’m Quentin Coldwater’s daughter from the future,” she said, like she’d rehearsed it-- that was the easier part for Alice to focus on, the delivery. “And I need you to help me save my family.”

     

    Or: Alice saves Queliot, and saves the world. And just maybe figures out who she's always been.

    Summary

    Music & Lyrics inspired AU. Harvey Specter was on top of the world and on top of the charts – until his father died and his partner betrayed him, abandoning Harvey to launch his own solo career. Without him, without a partner to compose the music, Harvey’s career is in jeopardy. And with just a month left until his album is due, the clock is ticking. He thinks he’s done for, until he passes by a storefront and sees a man in a gray hoodie, hunched over in front of a piano, fingers flying over the keys.

    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

    Summary

    When up-and-coming playwright Quentin Coldwater lands the Brakebills Theatre Co. spring residency program, he's pretty sure life's as good as it's ever gonna get. After all, Brakebills introduced him to the magic of the theatre in the first place, and now he's got the chance to work with them––and their very handsome, very helpful associate director Eliot Waugh.

    But it's one thing to open a door and something quite different––something that requires a great deal of bravery––to follow where it might lead.

    Summary

    The Great Cock had said a lot of things, most of them unfortunately relevant, a few of them less so. Among the latter had been his comments on Quentin: Eliot’s “brother of the heart.” Two parts of a whole. Etc. Standard quest language, Eliot had thought.

    As it turned out, not quite so standard.

    Jon barked out a laugh, but then he wished he hadn’t because Jaime was turning his eyes on him. So far during this interview he had avoided any pointed questions.

    “The most surprising, perhaps, was your marriage to Sansa Stark, Jon. A famous movie star in her own right and Robb’s own sister. There had been rumors of you two dating for a while during the band’s off years, seeing as you were her date to a lot of her movie premieres. Any comment on when exactly you two got together?”

    Summary

    There’s a layer of dust coating everything in the cottage, like nobody’s been here since them. A thick white film, almost the perfect representation of what their lives ended up being. He swipes a finger along the counter as he goes, a thin streak left behind, as he marvels at the fact that it’s exactly how they left it — despite never having actually been here. Even the lines along the doorway to the kitchen, where Quentin had insisted on marking Teddy’s height; Eliot pauses here, to press his nail into the tallest mark, a soft smile dancing along his lips at the memory of Quentin pouting when they finally had the proof that Teddy had officially grown taller than him.

    He swallows down a lump and moves down the short hallway. The door to the bedroom is closed, and he hesitates for a moment, before reaching out and wrapping his hand around the knob. He freezes, a memory flashing of Quentin.

    Or, hey there's actually a use for the vial of blood.

    Q, however, has stayed away from him since the third time Eliot had jerked violently at his touch. Eliot hates everything about this, most of all the expression on Q’s face. How do you tell the man you love that you crave him, ache for him, love him when it melts your skin whenever he touches you? How do you tell him, and make him believe you?

    Eliot needs a date. Quentin’s a good friend. Like, a really good friend. Like–– what’s the step that comes after really good friend who goes on fake dates with the guy who flirts with you around the clock and really kind of only opens up to two people and one of them is his platonic soulmate and the other is you? Quentin’s that sort of friend.

    Summary

    She was working up a good argument with Eliot – supposing he was in her body, because that’s how this magic bullshit is supposed to work, right? – when there was a groan from the bed. A groan from the bed. Margo scrambled up to her knees so fast every single bone in Eliot’s legs somehow managed to bang painfully against the floor, but she ignored that in favor of clutching the side of the bed with both hands and peeking over.

    See, the thing is, Eliot had been… distant lately. They hadn’t really talked much in the week since their failed trip to Fillory. Which is why she is so surprised to find the person in Eliot’s bed is none other than Quentin fucking Coldwater.

    Summary

    “You don’t?” Eliot asks, sounding a little off, hoarse, and Quentin passes him his water bottle, shrugging when Eliot looks uncomprehendingly down at it. “What– okay,” He clears his throat, starts again. “So you’re over your ex, that’s good. I’m sure your father will understand.”

    “Yeah, I mean– yeah, he’ll get it, but he’ll worry,” Quentin runs a hand through his hair, huffing, “he’ll worry, and he’ll start asking questions and wondering– El, what if he wants to visit? He can’t come to Brakebills! I’ll have to, I don’t know. I don’t know. Pretend to show him around Yale? Is that illegal– it sounds like it’s illegal–”

    Eliot presses another drink into his hands.

    “Before we resort to felonies,” he stops Quentin’s rambling, taking a large drink of a flask he produces from under the cushions. “Why don’t we try something easier? How about you ask someone else to go with you?”

    Once again, Quentin’s brain freezes.

    or, Thanksgiving is upon them and Quentin needs someone to bring home, Eliot is accidentally willing, and Julia is only in for the entertainment.
