    Summary

    Quentin’s back from the dead and recovering and everything’s fine. Of course, no one seems to know exactly how he made it back, and he can’t shake the feeling that he’s forgotten something important, and he’s really not sure what’s going on with him and Eliot lately…

    Summary

    They’re not labeling it, but Eliot buys a vest that needs to be laced up at the back, thinking Quentin can help me with this without a second thought. They’re not labeling it, but Quentin sleeps in his room sometimes even when they don’t fuck, if his brain is particularly loud or he’s feeling especially lonely. Eliot knows the schedule of Q’s father’s chemo appointments, because Quentin always comes back a bit of a mess, a little in need of giving up control of simple things like ‘where do I find food today’ or ‘what shirt should I wear’ to someone else. And maybe you could say that’s just being a good Dom, but...

    Eliot’s Dommed for boys before. He’s done it with a kind of regularity once or twice, even. It was nothing like this, groggy morning coffee cups and lunch between classes, Quentin quiet and boneless with his head in Eliot’s lap while he and Margo gossip. This was something new. Maybe it didn’t have a label, but it felt like something edging up towards– a relationship?

    Summary

    “If you’d like to review the full terms and conditions of your deal, you can have as much time as you need to read--”

    Eliot shook his head, still not quite used to the way his hair curled below his chin, now, since he hadn’t been around to keep it properly groomed for the last-- however long it had been. God, he hadn’t even bothered to ask.

    “You get my deep, dark, never-told secret, and I get the opportunity to try and Orpheus-and-Eurydice Q the fuck out of this place,” he said, cutting through Penny’s bureaucratic power-trip. “I got it the first twelve times.”

    “I would strongly advise--”

    “I’m ready.”

    The corners of Penny’s mouth went up, but it would have been a stretch to call the expression a smile. “No, you’re really not."

     

    The Monster's been defeated, Quentin is dead, and Eliot has a quest of his own--if he can trust himself to complete it. An Orpheus and Eurydice remix.

    Summary

    Chloe never sleeps well on nights like these, so it’s not particularly surprising when she realizes the shuffling around on the roof isn’t part of a dream.

    It’s even less surprising when that shuffling turns into the sound of Rachel nearly falling flat on her face and slurring out a “G’job. S’more practice ‘n you’ll gemme one day…” as she pats conspiratorially at the hardwood.
