    Summary

    Quentin stares at him, eyes wide. In times like these Quentin is almost stupid enough to believe that Eliot loves him back. ”You don’t mean that,” he scoffs.

    “I do,” Eliot’s expression softens. “Getting magic back isn’t worth your life, Q. Not to me. Not to the others.”

    “That’s a nice sentiment, El.” He says halfheartedly.

    His gaze feels like it’s burning a hole into Quentin. “And if the roles were switched? If it were Alice or me deciding to stay at Blackspire? Would you just accept it?”

    “That’s different, Eliot.”

    “Is it? How? Explain it to me.”

    He paused before responding this time. “It...It just is.”

    The knowing look he got in return was enough to make him want to crumble.

    Summary

    Another snapshot into Quentin and Eliot, in the AU-I'm-not-writing-in-depth where everything goes off GREAT while killing the Beast, and there's no nonsense where Quentin and Alice get pushed back together and also she gets to... like, not go niffin, and despite all the thought I've put into the various things that would change, I'm REALLY just here to write about two boys falling in love in a fantasy world they have to work out the ruling of?

    Eventually there'll be some other how-X-canon-event-would-go-differently, for now it's just more Yearning.

    Summary

    Eliot Waugh has been maybe a little bit obsessed with the concept of soulmates ever since he discovered they were a real thing. He's also come to accept that he doesn't get one-- which fits the general pattern where his life is concerned. He's not the kind of boy anyone loves forever. He tells himself that's fine, because he's not the kind of boy who goes around falling in love with other people, either.

    Then Quentin Coldwater makes a fool and a liar out of him by getting expelled, but Quentin has a soulmate, somewhere. And Eliot doesn't.

    Right?

    Summary

    I had not intended to write a sequel to 'The Grass is Dead, the Gold is Brown', but like... Here I am with Quentin's POV. I don't even have an exact imagined point where this falls, but like I'm already imagining a slight alternate universe in which Quentin and Alice are allowed to just be friends instead of having intensely uncomfortable makeout sessions, so who even knows.

    (I cannot be the only person who hates that their whole relationship is the two of them being REALLY BAD at being together while other people loudly talk about their sexual chemistry at them, like they could have had a good relationship as people if TV writers weren't weird about sex)

    Summary

    Eliot feels that brief flash of panic again as he snubs his cigarette out in the ashtray on the floor and sits up. Quentin won’t look at him now; he’s staring into the fireplace with his hands clenched around the cuffs of his sweatshirt. He shakes his head a little, letting a curtain of dark hair obscure his face from Eliot’s view. Definitely hiding something. Eliot’s heart beats a little faster as he leans forward to try to get a better look.

    “Quentin, what is going on? What aren’t you telling me?”

    Or: Quentin wants to die again and Eliot doesn't understand how he didn't notice.
