    Summary

    Eliot brought it up three days before spring break was set to begin. It was Wednesday night, 8pm. The lazy Brakebills campus beyond the windows swallowed under a blanket of dark.

    Encanto Oculto in the time cast a spell on you ‘verse.

    Summary

    Pushed up against a wall tucked behind the back alley of the bar he had wandered into was not exactly how Eliot had planned to end his night, in fact he had been rather hoping on a relaxing bath in the hotel room his company had paid for, he had only popped in to grab a quick drink after a day of listening to wealthy clients complain about relatively little. Now however with his hands flat to the wall behind him to keep himself steady, and trying to ground himself so he doesn’t come in 2 minutes flat, trying desperately to focus on the cold rough texture of the bricks and looking anywhere but at the beautiful man currently on his knees between his legs, he doesn’t think he would rather be anywhere else.

    Summary

    In a world where only Magicians present with sexual designations, Alphas Margo Hanson and Eliot Waugh had two main rules: no omegas and no undesignated first years.
    Obviously, they had a third rule. But it didn't need reiterating: Margo and Eliot came first. They were a unit.
    They keep their habit of seducing first year Brakebills boys to presented Betas and Alphas and outside of their own dynamic the duo don't really have friends.
    When first-year Quentin Coldwater shows up all doe-eyed, Eliot is surprised when he worms his way under his skin and Margo can barely admit that she can't get him out of her head. Quentin is mostly oblivious, as usual.
    What happens when Margo and Eliot get to know Quentin while waiting for him to present?
    The duo wasn't looking for a regular, let alone a committed third, at least as far as Margo knew.
    What happens when Quentin finally presents? Far later than most magical adepts, in the middle of the cottage sitting room?

    Summary

    Eliot wasn’t a typical omega. Quentin wasn’t the normal alpha. They didn’t make a normal pairing, friends or otherwise. Maybe that could be alright.

    Summary

    Far away in a multiverse in another galaxy two earth magicians find themselves on a planet they have never heard of before. They become friends with a prince and his two knight radiant best friends. Together they try to find a way for the earth magicians to get back home and figure out that sometimes home is where your friends are and that's enough. And sometimes that's bullshit and you really really miss things like sodas, cars, and cellphones.

    Summary

    Through some turn of events he barely remembers now, Eliot is in Penn Station, in a trance as he follows Quentin’s careful instructions about what ticket to buy so that they can change at Newark Station and get a bus from there. Apologetic the whole time, like he’s sorry about putting Eliot through this experience, like Eliot didn’t basically kick down his door and demand to be part of a family holiday. After he’s sure that Eliot’s got it, he is sorry again about having to dash to the bathroom before the train, which is actually quite welcome because it gives more time for Eliot to disassociate in peace about what the fuck he’s doing right now.

     

     

     

    After Encanto and Brakebills South, Margo is off to surburban Illinois to play supportive girlfriend at Thanksgiving, leaving Eliot pissy and lonely enough to agree to spend it at chez Coldwater. Platonically, of course. They're friends. This is something friends do.

    Summary

    All it took was one thought of skin-tight fabric, of slight resistance when pushing his fingers under the hem or tugging the waistband over Quentin's hips, and then Eliot couldn't stop thinking about it until he took action. So, one Margo-assisted shopping trip and a few minutes alone with Quentin's dresser later, here they are.

    or: Eliot finally puts into motion a long-held plan to give Quentin a wardrobe upgrade... though he probably should've mentioned it to Quentin first.

    Summary

    "Why didn't you tell us your birthday was coming up?" Margo demands, all but leaping off the couch. "We would've started pregaming at the end of June!"

    "There's still time," Eliot says, sitting up straighter. "We can break out the emergency scotch, and Hoberman probably owes me at least one favour—"

    "Guys," Quentin cuts in weakly, "it's not really… I mean, look, I know you two are, like— you block off your entire birth months for one long party, I get it, I live here." He shrugs again under their matching impatient stares, slowly closing the book in his lap. "But I don't really… make a big deal out of mine."

    or: Sometimes having a summertime birthday really sucks, but sometimes it really doesn’t.

    Eliot takes another drag, slowly exhales, and makes a gesture that molds the smoke into a complex pattern of smoke rings. “You want a hit?” he says, finally breaking the silence.

    Summary

    “I found something,” Quentin said. “In Eliot’s room.”

    Across the table, Julia’s face shifted in the gloom. They hadn’t bothered with a warming enchantment tonight, not a single orb of magic light bobbing overhead. There in the dark with their jackets pulled on. Like they were back in undergrad, just the two of them. Like they didn’t have magic at all.

    In spite of the chill, a heat had found him. Sweeping over the apples of Quentin’s cheeks in brilliant scarlet whorls. He watched as Julia pinched her brows together, eying him from where she sat.

    “Okay,” she said, dragging the word out long. “You wanna elaborate on that, Q?”

    OR

    What comes after.

    Summary

    There’s a section of Encanto Oculto set aside for attendees searching for a little more intimacy, a little more specificity, and a little more magic. In the Bamboo Forest, the Elders of Encanto work their magic—literal and otherwise—to match attendees with a partner suited to their most intimate desires.

    It’s the perfect match-making service to make sure that your Encanto experience is extraordinary, amazing, perhaps even flawless.

    This is all assuming, of course, that the Elders don’t deem you and your best friend compatible, even though real life seems to disagree.

    Summary

    It didn’t eradicate Alice’s suspicions. Some primal, animal fear, dating back to the antediluvian muck of middle school, said this was merely an unusual level of commitment to the bit, to setting up the punchline. Truth or dare? Ghostly, girlish giggles echoed in Alice’s amygdala. Either way she knew she would lose. Call truth and she got laughs poorly muffled behind hands as she was asked if she’d ever been kissed. The losses branch out. Say no and be revealed as a loser. Say yes and the freakishness of the idea induced shrieks of delighted horror. Call dare and end up on the roof of Jessica K's house, no one believing she’d jump, and then suddenly being no longer on the roof but on the ground among a circle of screaming girls, leg broken, and instead of gaining respect for her nerve she’d freaked everyone out so much they avoided eye contact forever after.

    Alice always took the dare.

    Summary

    Quentin catches feelings. A lot. When the love letters he wrote to cope with those feelings get out? He has only one option: pretending to be Eliot's boyfriend, to help Eliot get back at his ex, and to avoid Alice confronting him about her letter at all costs. Everything’s bound to blow over by Eliot’s “contingency plan” of going to Encanto Oculto together... right? Except, Quentin doesn’t know what’s more impossible: that his feelings for Eliot are growing stronger every day, or that he’s starting to believe he actually deserves the love he’s always wanted.

    Inspired by "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" (2018)
