    Summary

    Quentin, a student at Columbia, and Eliot, a student at CUNY, meet at a coffee shop in Harlem and find themselves incredibly drawn to each other. Despite their prior traumas, romance isn't able to escape them, and an all encompassing love blossoms. But the ghosts of Eliot's past, in particular, threaten everything that they have.

    Summary

    “Put it on, put it on, put it on.” He punctuates each sentence with another kiss, as he stretches his hand out over Quentin’s breast bone.

    He grabs Eliot’s hand, only mildly embarrassed by the way his own hands tremble, and carefully settles the metal over his skin, and then down his finger. He pulls away and looks at Eliot meaningfully.

    Eliot grins. “It’s just six months.” He lifts his hand and holds it up so they can both look at the silver glinting beneath the light shining in from the living room. “This is forever.”

    --

    Or, Quentin and Eliot are idiots, and it's Christmas.

    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

    “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

    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)

    Summary

    Eliot Waugh was not always the spectacular second year student Quentin had the good fortune to meet on his first day at Brakebills. “Self-made” for better or worse, fits Eliot to the T, and the beginning of everything he was and became, started in Indiana.

    It started with the new girl.

    Summary

    Eliot was the artist in the family, but now without much family left, he's the sole inheritor of Four Seasons Total Landscaping, the family business that his alcoholic father and brother have left disorganized and in debt. He doesn't even like plants. Quentin and Julia own Fantasyland, the equally struggling feminist sex shop next door, which should be Quentin's dream job, but the chronic depression that derailed his academic career hasn't left much space in his life to believe in dreams. Quentin and Eliot click immediately, but in order to get a relationship off the ground, at least one of them is going to have to deal with his fear of commitment, and who has that kind of free time? A love story about figuring out what you want to do for a living, daddy issues, best friend drama, recovery, kink, and other dangers inherent to one's 20s.

    Summary

    What happens in Vegas does NOT stay in Vegas. When Margo and Quentin head on a spontaneous trip to Las Vegas without Eliot, they have a little too much fun and things get out of hand. Yeah, they sort of got married, but it's nothing a quick annulment can't fix. Eliot doesn't care at all, obviously. Why would it bother him?

    Featuring: champagne and hotel room bubble baths, Margo's endless supply of corny pet names, a visit to Q's dad in Jersey, two over-the-top parties, and a guy named Brad.

    Summary

    “I think I’ve waited long enough to meet Eliot,” his dad says, and Quentin can already feel himself caving. He’s run out of excuses, and he can sense it, his dad’s going to bring out the big guns— “and we don’t know how long until the cancer comes back, and I just want—”

    There it is. Ted knocks through the last barrier he has in his defenses, and Quentin folds, just like that cheap-ass card table Eliot was using as a bar until he slammed one too many shot glasses down on it.

    “Okay!” Fuck. Goddammit shit fuck fuck fuck. “Okay. I’ll bring him. For a visit.”

    “Really? Fantastic. For your birthday next weekend? I can cook. Or order in. Your favorite. Whatever you want! You can spend the weekend?”

    “Sure!” Why the fuck not? I’d love to spend my birthday fake-dating the man I’m in love with, who is most definitely not in love with me, so my dad can die peacefully, assured his son won’t spend the rest of his life with only his Fillory books, Star Wars action figures, and anatomically correct blow-up dolls for company.

    Post S3 AU. No monster. The only disasters here are bisexual ones. Post-mosaic fake-dating shenanigans.

    Summary

    Eliot Waugh seemingly has everything he needs— work he believes in, world travel, and most importantly he has Margo, his best friend and his rock. A temporary assignment in Kampala, Uganda, however, may upend Eliot’s world—including his habitually casual love life—when he meets Quentin Coldwater, a soft-spoken, mysterious young doctor to whom he is irrevocably drawn.

    Quentin Coldwater is guarding a secret, one that separates him from everyone but Ted, his oldest and dearest friend. He’s created a careful life apart, in Kampala, where he can help people in need while staying tucked away from the rest of the world. Quentin isn’t planning on falling in love again, but with Ted’s encouragement he’ll let himself get close to the captivating, unusual Eliot— until a spectre from his past threatens discovery, shattering the safety that he’s so carefully created. Will Quentin’s secret tear them apart?

    This is a story of two people with complex pasts taking risks, great and small, for a powerful and unexpected love.

    Summary

    It's easy for Quentin to figure out that he's bi. It's not quite as straightforward to figure out why, most of the time, he doesn't seem to want anyone at all anyway.

    And even when he has a word for it, even when he knows there's nothing actually wrong, the trouble of only being able to want under specific circumstances means knowing what to do about a crush on one of your best friends is even more daunting. Especially when it's not going away this time, and much bigger problems just keep happening.

    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

    It happened. That they'd asked themselves how, when it's literally the least important part of this, he can chalk up to shock or shortsightedness or his own sheer stupidity. It's the why that actually matters, and he thinks he knows the answer to that. So the real question… is how to make it happen again.
