At Long Last

FANDOM: The Magicians 


RELATIONSHIP: Quentin Coldwater/Eliot Waugh

TAGS: Pre-relationship, Pining, angst, Kissing on the Mosaic, Failed Seduction

Quentin’s tired of waiting and seriously, if they weren’t stuck decades in the past with no one else but themselves, he thinks he would have found someone else to take his mind off of it. But they’re here together and Eliot’s all he’s got. Eliot’s his everything now. His best friend. His quest mate. His roommate. The bane of his existence. His stronghold. His confidant. But he’s also the one thing he really wants to confide about.

And it’s driving Quentin crazy.

He’s never been one to make the first move, but he’s had to grow up a lot in the past few months. He’s had to learn everything that he thought would never work for him because there was no one else to hide behind. There was no one to help him with this. He wanted Eliot and there was no one to help him with it.

He tried being sexy. He bent down to do stuff, making sure his butt was facing Eliot. He ate with his fingers and licked it all up. He tried walking around with nothing but a pair of shorts one time and he just ended up catching a cold and had to spend the next few days wrapped in layers and layers of clothes because Eliot was pissed that he would be so fucking stupid.

Quentin knows Eliot isn’t sleeping with anyone. He also knows he’s the only guy around that Eliot spends any time with. Which is why he’s wondering how Eliot can look him dead in the eye when he’s trying to be sexy and react to nothing.

The magicians haikus

Ok, so, these are probably gonna be bad because I write stories, poems, and spoken words. Not haikus. But I gave it my best and they were fun!


Genius Alice Quinn

Our wise torture artist fox

You could use a friend

Dean Fogg:

Our pained Dean Henry Fogg

You once were blind, now you see

Selfish for a cause


Julia Wicker

A goddess made out of sparks

Your light won’t go out


Quentin Coldwater, a knight

You would have given your life

Hang on, they’re coming


Kady our warrior

A girl who will not give up

There’s a storm in you


Of peaches and plums

A vision of loss and lust

The boy loves you back


Our high king Margo

With your tongue as your weapon

Long we hope you reign


Penny you travel far

There’s been more than one of you

Be the penny, save them


Josh, who sings and tries

Doesn’t have to be alone

He’ll bring the tacos


The beautiful Fen

A dangerous maiden

Always has a knife


Desperate but kind

He will be around this time

Just as important


She is a serpent

Thunder grows inside of her

A heart beats in there


also,, happy (last minute) father’s day!

Quentin Coldwater: *literally kisses and has sex with men, and also has dozens of implicitly gay moments*

Some people: Quentin is straight,,, he is just being playful. He is acting platonic but you know,, edgy. Edgy platonic.

Give Q a braid you cowards

aintthatwhywegotlivers reblogged your post: Okay random but …  I have a need for Quentin…

so what ur saying is…hipster!q w his hipster!bf

Not even necessarily hipster!Q … 

So, let’s say Q, Margo and El are all enjoying wine at the Physical Cottage.  Eliot is running his fingers through Q’s hair, playing a bit with the hair at Q’s nape when Margo pipes up.

“Q should get an undercut.”

“A what?” Q would sit up, causing Eliot’s fingers to snag in Q’s hair and tug.

“You can’t tell me you don’t know the term undercut.”  Margo would give him that ‘look’.

“Okay, but why?”

“It would look cool, you’d be cooler in the summer.”

Eliot would pipe up and add.  “You’d look hot.  The skin would be more more sensitive.”  Eliot would lean over and suck a bit at the skin behind Q’s ear …

Q would probably relent and they’d all end up in the bathroom with a pair of clippers.

Rating: T, language

In a time-loop where Quentin and Eliot dated almost from the beginning, Quentin’s decision to replace the knight guarding Castle Blackspire takes on a devastating new weight. Β As a newly christened goddess, Julia has to grapple with the role she played in hurting two of her closest friends.

Julia and Quentin, or Jules and Q, or Jane and Martin. Whatever they call each other, they are together. Always.

Until they aren’t.

The story of Julia and Quentin, end to end, and all the times they find each other again and love each other forever.

Rated: M

Chapter 8 is up! It’s been a while since I posted an update in the tag. Hope y’all don’t mind!


The bi king of fillory. I was going to draw dean, but ill do that another time. I’m going to fix and color later.

I love writing Julia and Quentin’s friendship

Okay random but … 

I have a need for Quentin Coldwater with an undercut.

Like … maybe Margo, being the awesome meddler she is, convinces him?

Anyway, I can just imagine Q with his little bun but with an undercut and as he’s laying in bed, head on Eliot’s chest, Eliot just gently pets/strokes the undercut until both he and Q are asleep … 

Ugh I wish I could art this … 

@themargolem is this relevant to your new burgeoning interest in Q’s hair?

art give away piece for @gwendolynflight (: offense..

But you can’t tell me that Eliot Waugh has never sang “dancing queen” to Margo when she’s in a bad or sad mood

And you definitely cannot tell me Quentin has not on rare occasion joined in when he caught on to it and does terrible dance moves until she smiles or calls them idiots

And you absolutely 100% cannot tell me that after her crowing Eliot didn’t hug her close and whisper something along the lines of “I guess it’s dancing king, now.”

Beautiful, Languid, Filthy-Gorgeous

A semi-linear collection of works about Eliot and Margo (eventually also Quentin) and the bond between them. Explorations of intimacy, trust, and skin hunger in my favorite Quasiplatonic partnership.

This series will eventually span a wide window of time from pre-canon to the most recent episodes. They can be read independently, or in order as a part of the larger work.

The pieces will range in rating from T to E.

This Fandom Is the Best!

‘Shoulder to Shoulder with You’ crossed 10,000 hits earlier today! I’ve never had that happen for a story while I’m actively working on it. The story isn’t even a year and a half old yet.

I’m floored, and honored! Thank you to everyone who has commented, left kudos, subscribed, and added it to their favorites!

A special thanks to everyone who has listened to me ramble about it for endless hours! There are well over a dozen of you, and you’ve all contributed to helping the story grow, and helped its world flourish.

There is so much planned for this universe! To those of you who know future pieces I swear we will get there. I’m almost through with the current mini arc and then I’ll be actively tackling my version of seasons 1-3.

Hopefully everyone will still be with me when this story crosses 20,000 hits. I love you all, and this story wouldn’t have happened without all the support its’ gotten!

Thank you all! This is the best fandom I’ve ever been a member of. The Magicians means the world to me.
