    Summary

    The night the Physical Kids’ Cottage burns down, Quentin is alone in his room, sulking. He could have been at the party downstairs. He’d been invited to the party downstairs. But ever since the... incident with Eliot, things have been weird between them. Quentin hadn’t wanted to mope around the edges of the room and pine for simpler days. And so he’s alone, forced to escape through his bedroom window, as the magical flames tear the Cottage down to the studs.

    In the aftermath, Quentin, Eliot and the other Physical Kids are left to pick up the pieces, both literally and metaphorically, of what happened that night. And in Quentin’s case, of what happened months earlier, when he’d humiliated himself and lost the closeness of the most important friendship of his adult life.

    Luckily, even if things can never go back to the way they were, that doesn’t mean they can’t be fixed. And in the meantime, there’s a shortage of bedrooms on campus in the absence of the Cottage...

    Summary

    Eliot is startled, maybe, but he doesn’t pull away, doesn’t push Quentin off the bed. There’s a furrow in his brow. His lips are pink and wet, his cheeks wearing a slight flush. Something breaks open on his face, like light trying to peek through a boarded-up, forgotten window. “Q,” he starts. “We shouldn’t.”

    Not I don’t want you or Get the fuck off of me. Just: We shouldn’t.

    He cups the nape of Eliot’s neck, fingers tangling in his curls. “I just—I miss you.”

    Something terribly conflicted blooms over Eliot’s face, and he rumbles, low in his throat. “This is a—” He brushes his lips featherlight against Quentin’s, sighing into his mouth. “—terrible idea. What—what are you doing? You don’t—you don’t want this.”

    Quentin chases Eliot’s mouth, kissing him harder, more insistent. He pulls the bow of Eliot’s lips between his teeth. “I want you all the time. Wanna feel how bad I want you?” Quentin’s voice is rough, ragged. Eliot has always liked this, feeling how hard he gets, how much he wants. For Quentin, it never really stopped, stirring in the background, a restless eddy of attraction.

    Summary

    He’d thought that his feelings for Quentin would diminish. A longer half life than normal, but fading nonetheless. But he’d had to actively push Quentin from his mind, working at losing him piece by piece (—two rivers, a continent— he thinks), but it was work, an active extrication, dulled by alcohol and drugs and sun-soaked, over-waxed men. It had taken time and the death of brain cells, his sobriety and losing the life he’d tried to build—

    —but Eliot is sure, as soon as Quentin walks into his patisserie, that all of that resistance, the repeated acts of forgetting, was for nothing.

    **Fic is incomplete. Abandoned.**

    Summary

    The interior of the club is just as... as swanky as the exterior had suggested, and Quentin feels distinctly like a fish out of water as he skirts the edge of the dance floor. He still isn't sure how he got in, why he caught the attention of one of the co-owners, but he does know that that kind of woman is not the kind to be disobeyed. And he does want a drink, if he's going to be sitting here trying to figure out what's so appealing about...

    "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but chains and whips excite me," Rihanna sings over the speakers, and Quentin can't help an amused snort, both at the timing and the song choice.


    Quentin Coldwater ventures out looking for a night on the town, distracting himself from his recent break-up. He gets so much more than he bargained for - but hell, he's not complaining.
