A ~1,500 word short story for the #BattleTheBeast contest from The Magicians, on SyFy. It recounts one of the 39 unfortunate times Quentin Coldwater and his friends from Brakebills University battle The Beast, a monstrous master magician from the fantastical land of Fillory. Pretty much everyone dies horrible deaths. Enjoy!

This was a delight! You have a wonderful grasp of the Magicians' universe. And I LOVE the Princess Bride reference.

I loved the way you wrote your prose very professionally done, everything with clear and concise the imagery was first rate, honestly i felt as though this story could have been a published one.

Eliot was hilarious in this one! I think I read one of your other ones, with the scrying glass? I thought for sure that would make it but I guess with one per writer, it's a tough choice. Anyway, congrats, great job and good luck tomorrow!

This is deffinitly one of the better submissions I've read. Great detail without taken the reader away from the fast paced action. I also liked the choice of battle ground. Very nice.
