    Summary

    "I knew back then that the spell worked for you," Quentin goes on, eagerness seeping back into his tone, "but neither of us had any idea— I mean, nobody remembers where it takes them, but it's still— it's nice to know." He's nearly grinning now, trying and failing to keep his excitement contained. "That it took you here, I mean. To me." His gaze flits over Eliot's face with something like awe, eyes wide and bright. "That we're soulmates."

    or: Eliot takes an unexpected trip.

    Summary

    Eliot slams the flyer down on the table. “Fillory has an entire festival dedicated to fucking and I had no idea it existed? What the fuck, Margo?”

    “It’s not dedicated to fucking,” Fen breaks in. “And it only happens every few years, because it’s dedicated to finding your soulmate.” She smiles brightly, her eyes sparkling as she sighs. “They only put ‘fucking’ in the title to get everyone’s attention. And because of all the brothels that are set up on the festival site.”

    “Finding your soulmate?” Quentin breaks in. Eliot’s eyes cut over to him, a soft smile automatically forming on his face as he takes in Quentin’s crooked crown, and his soft brown eyes that are focused on Fen. “Like, a real ‘only one in the entire world for me’ soulmate?”

    “Mmhmm,” Fen says, nodding. “Do they not have soulmates on Earth?”

    “Only in Disney movies,” Margo says, sitting down in her chair. “And the best fanfiction ever written.”

    One of the best, funniest, sweetest, hottest takes on soulmates you'll read in any fandom, and certainly one of the most original.

    Summary

    Can Quentin make a home out of a mausoleum? How many parents (living and dead) can one baby really have? Will Eliot ever be whole again?

    Or

    Sometimes a family can be a depressed children's book author, a man with half his soul, and a really well-dressed infant.

    Summary

    There's a longstanding tradition of playing Death for high-risk high-reward stakes: power, immortality, bragging rights. In this case, they're playing for Coldwater. And Margo––HBIC and best goddamn Welter's captain this side of the Neitherlands––isn't going down without a fight. No matter who complains about her choice of game.

    C'mon. As if they were gonna play chess for Quentin Coldwater's mortal soul.
