Title: "A Beginner's Guide to Palmistry"
Fandom: The Magicians
Relationships: Quentin Coldwater/Eliot Waugh
Rating: Mature
Length: ~3,200 words

Content notes: None of my usual warnings apply to this one. I keep my warning policy in my AO3 profile and am always willing to answer private DW messages or emails asking for elaboration or clarification on my warnings for a particular story.

Author notes: For both the "Point" challenge and the "Horoscope" square on my bingo card. This is, actually, canon-compliant through 04x08 (I haven't seen 04x09 yet) but it only has spoilers through 03x05.

Summary:

"Do you seriously not remember offering to teach me astrology?" Quentin asks, a laugh tucked inside it, like a razor blade.

Title: "High in the sunlit silence"
Fandom: The Magicians
Relationships: Quentin's mom-centric (Quentin's mom/Ted Coldwater, Quentin's mom/Molly)
Rating: Mature
Length: ~2,200 words  

Content notes: Warning for disturbing content. I keep my warning policy in my AO3 profile and am always willing to answer private DW messages or emails asking for elaboration or clarification on my warnings for a particular story.

Author notes: For both the "Wings" challenge and the "Lost and Found" square on my bingo card, as well as for this week's prompt from [tumblr.com profile] themagiciansreccenter, "Family." Title is from "High Flight" by John Gillespie Magee, Jr., which is also quoted several places in the text; also contains several references to/quotations from "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" by The Proclaimers. This story is technically part of The Marriage Plot, but I think it pretty inarguably stands alone and could probably be read as not even really being a Magicians story. [ETA 2019.03.21: this story is now also posted to AO3.]

Summary:

In September, Claudia starts Wednesday night Drawing for Beginners at the adult school.

Author notes: For both the "Restraint" challenge and the "Solitary" square on my bingo card. Title—inappropriately—from Keats, "Endymion." [ETA 2019.03.21: this story is now also posted to AO3.]

Summary:

Sitting next to Quentin in the closet, Julia asks, "Anything you want to tell me?"; and he makes a high, ragged noise, and shakes his head.

Author notes: For both the "Identity" challenge on Amnesty 42 and the "Revision" square on my bingo card. Technically part of The Marriage Plot (happens about 3 months after "Spell", if you're following along), but should stand fine on its own. [ETA 2019.03.03: this story is now also posted to AO3.]

Summary:

"So there's this guy," Eliot says, and waves a hand, "selling some books back."

Title: "Mountain Fold"
Fandom: The Magicians (TV)
Relationships: Penny Adiyodi and everyone, Penny Adiyodi/everyone (no, really, I do mean everyone)
Rating: Mature
Length: ~2,800 words

Content notes: Warnings for disturbing content. I keep my warning policy in my AO3 profile and am always willing to answer private DW messages or emails asking for elaboration or clarification on my warnings for a particular story.

Author notes: For both the "Note" challenge and the "Suitcase" square on my bingo card. This was written with a nonzero amount of help from a sort of statistically elaborate though not particularly sophisticated Python script, the details of which don't need exploring at this juncture. Basically I just feel I should disclose that it's partly fanfic and partly, like......... code-based performance art, I guess? Fanfic built on an underlying skeleton of code-based performance art? Something like that, at any rate. I also should mention that while I am doing 39 Graves, this is its own thing and bears no relationship to either my timeline or anyone else's. [ETA 2019.03.03: this story is now also posted to AO3.]

Summary:

Leaving, thirty-nine times.

Title: "What doctrine call you this?"
Fandom: The Magicians (TV)
Relationships: Arielle focus [Arielle and Teddy, Arielle*Quentin*Eliot]
Rating: Mature
Length: ~4800 words

Content notes: Warnings for consent issues and disturbing content. I keep my warning policy in my AO3 profile and am always willing to answer private DW messages or emails asking for elaboration or clarification on my warnings for a particular story. Regarding the pairing: Much as with my last story for FFW, I've been using the "*" for relationships that don't fit neatly into the "&" or "/" categories, a note that here applies to Arielle, Eliot, and Quentin in essentially every combination.

Author notes: For both the "Key" challenge and the "Apple" square on my bingo card. Since the word "key" occurs zero times in this story, I should note—on the off chance that anyone is giving this a cross-fandom read—that it is in reference to the canonical context: a quest, in which Eliot and Quentin are trying to solve a puzzle to find a magical key. Title from "Doctor Faustus." There's a choose your own adventure element, here: while this is, technically, part of my massive post-S3 Magicians id-universe, it also should be perfectly happy standing alone, and part of me wants to write a, like, AU of my own story, in which the two universes more or less diverge at this point. I'm not going to do that, though—no, really. I'm actually not. Probably. With many thanks to [personal profile] glorious_spoon for the parent- and child-pick, and to [personal profile] breathedout for the beta. ETA 2019.02.01: this story is now also posted to AO3.

Summary:
The last temptation of Arielle Perry.

Title: "The Get Down"
Fandom: The Magicians (TV)
Pairing: Margo Hanson*Eliot Waugh, Margo Hanson/Eliot Waugh/OFC
Rating: ...Mature? [explicit (on-screen) discussion of (off-screen) sex]
Length: ~1.3k
Content notes: Warning for consent issues. I keep my warning policy in my AO3 profile and am always willing to answer private DW messages or emails asking for elaboration or clarification on my warnings for a particular story.
Author notes: For both the "Reflect" challenge and the "Ball" square on my bingo card. Regarding the pairing: I've been using the "*" lately as notation to indicate relationships that don't fit nicely into "&" and "/" categorization; Margo and Eliot's (canonically queer, canonically passionate) friendship is sort of my lead gong-banger for wanting this new notation, and I think their dynamic in this story is a great example of why. Do they screw? Yes, both canonically and in (well—before) this story; but I continue to feel like the question, "Is their relationship sexual?" needs a like ten thousand word essay to adequately answer. In lieu of that: the asterisk, and this story. ETA 2019.01.20: If you are looking for an ebook or an accessible version, this fic is also now cross-posted to AO3.

Summary: The Wrecking Ball is a weapon of peace—now, at least.

Also, I would hope that this would go without saying, but just in case: I do not necessarily condone or support any of the things I make fictional characters do or say or think fictionally in fiction. Okay? Okay.
