    Summary

    An open letter to Sera Gamble and John McNamara, in which I discuss the narrative shortcomings of the season 4 finale. Though the season had built up a number of excellent character arcs and spun many interesting plot threads with meaningful themes, it unravels them all in the finale in unsatisfactory ways in favor of performative shock-horror of character death.

    Summary

    When Quentin is back on terra firma, he brings his rough liver-spotted hand (he has an old man’s hands, it’s as weird as it is nice) to the smooth stone beneath the tree, giving the edge a long, loving pet, before squeezing the corner of the more weathered stone beside it. When he finally turns around, cracking his aching back as he does, the figure has reached the clearing, and come to a dead stop.

    Quentin does the same.

     

     

    Or, Eliot makes his way back to the mosaic, and two widowers discuss grief, peace, and the fact that the beauty of all life is something that we can carry with us. Always.

    Summary

    In every possible timeline, Quentin and Eliot find their way to each other. Including this one. No Beast, no quests, yet including the greatest challenge of all—a timeline where Quentin’s exam guide and first friend was, uh… Todd. Rom-com fun, for the soul.

    (Or: In which Quentin is allowed to find joy.)
