    Summary

    The Sun is barely rising, but a weight is already settling on his chest. Alec’s scent is faint on the pillow, trapped in the silk fibers like morning dew under clover leaves. It helps soothe the ache a little, the one that has been following him for centuries.

    He inhales deeply, letting relief wash over him.

    Who knew answers could be so soft, so sweet?

     

    Every day Magnus wakes up with Alec in his life, he realizes how differently he deals with his depression and aches. It's a lot better now. This is one of these mornings.

    Summary

    PODFIC:

    Each chapter is a podfic for one of the stories in my Consular High Warlock universe, read in the lovely and dulcet tones of ambivalently_certain. ❤️

    Chapter 1: A Man Never Stands Taller

    Keeping his lover’s gaze, Alec drops gracefully to his knees in front of Magnus and Magnus’s breath catches sharply in his throat. Alec, however, just stretches up a single hand and gently rubs a soothing thumb over Magnus’s velvet-clad knee as though in one action he hasn’t just overturned thousands of years of tradition and practice.

    Chapter 2: Dona Nobis Pacem

    “When Alec kneels before you on that dais, Magnus,” Jace keeps going, “he’s telling every person present that it is your judgement, your respect, that he places before all others. In you placing that rune on his neck, Alec is publicly proclaiming that it’s your blessing and your judgement on him and on his reign as Head that gives him the right and the authority to uphold the Covenant.”

    Summary

    Every Trueblood was taught, from the time they were born, about their history, and what their history meant for their lives. As one of the Original houses, a house descended from an angel, not the Mortal Cup, they all had... Abilities.

    Truebloods? They had the ability to place a single Mark.

    Once a target was Marked - there was no escaping the ensuing Hunt. The Trueblood who Marked them would find them, and kill them with the Trueblood blade; a blade that was handed to them from the angel that sired them to the first of the line.

    Alec Lightwood has selected his Mark. Asmodeus, Greater Demon and Prince of Hell.

    Thankfully, love perseveres, as it should.

    Summary

    “You insulted Magnus Bane?!?!” Izzy’s voice reached such a pitch that Alec had to pull his phone away from his ear. “Alec, Magnus is like the unattainable relationship goal. The party boy persona is totally just the surface. He uses social media to hype his business ventures, but he helps out at the VA and children’s hospitals and at least half of his profits from all of his businesses go right to local charities all over the city. And the tabloids haven’t connected him to a serious relationship in like five years. Nothing since the infamous implosion of his relationship with that actress, Camille Belcourt. She supposedly cheated on him with.. shit.. Alec, the rumor was that she cheated on him with half the players on the Dodgers. I think we’ve figured out where his distaste of baseball players stems from.”

    *****

    Or the one where Magnus and Alec both think the other is a promiscuous horn dog, but they’re actually both holding out hope for someone who cares.

    Summary

    Magnus wants nothing more than to flood Alec with his magic until it would be easier to separate the waters of two rivers than to untangle where Magnus ends and Alec begins, and the presence of another, the presence of a power that does not belong to Magnus touching Alec’s core is an acid-burn in Magnus’ mind.

    It is intolerable and Magnus will not have it.

    ~

    Or the one in which everyone returns from Edom and Magnus' magic decides that Alec is precious and must not be allowed to be possibly harmed by Lorenzo's intruding magic

    Magnus' throat is too tight to speak, but there’s a distinct shimmer visible in his suddenly unglamoured eyes.

    Summary

    "Alec resta in piedi a guardare Magnus e lo stregone gli indica gentilmente di unirsi a lui sul comodo divano in pelle. Alec gli sorride dolcemente e Magnus non può evitare di sorridergli a sua volta con affetto, anche se di solito cerca di mantenere un atteggiamento più severo di fronte alla corte.
    .
    Alec continua a guardarlo mentre con un movimento fluido si inginocchia di fronte a Magnus. Lo stregone resta senza fiato e senza parole. Alec è tranquillo, allunga una mano per accarezzare all'altezza del ginocchio i pantaloni di velluto rosso di Magnus. Con una sola azione ha sconvolto secoli di storia, tradizioni e aspettative."

    Summary

    Alec is still standing just to the right of him and Magnus gestures fondly for Alec to join him on the plush leather seat. Alec smiles at him softly, evenly, and Magnus is helpless against returning that smile just as fondly even though he usually keeps himself sharper-edged here at his court.

    And then, keeping his lover’s gaze, Alec drops gracefully to his knees in front of Magnus and Magnus’s breath catches sharply in his throat. Alec, however, just stretches up a single hand and gently rubs a soothing thumb over Magnus’s velvet-clad knee as though in one action he hasn’t just overturned thousands of years of tradition and practice.

    Summary

    “I don’t suppose you have room for two at this table?”

    Magnus’ heart stops at that rough, familiar voice. Alec is breathtaking, his warden’s uniform just as gorgeous on his lean form as his officer’s uniform, and Magnus suddenly has no doubts as to who has prepared this prison for him, full of allies and friends and small comforts he’d never thought to expect.

    Slouching, his arms resting irreverently on the table and legs spread wide, Magnus tilts his head up to meet his husband's adoring gaze, the plastic and metal table Magnus’ throne.

    Summary

    “Are you telling us,” Izzy started, then stopped.

    Jace picked up her thread a few seconds later when it was clear that Izzy was out of words for the moment. “The Downworld celebrates a day in memory of Valentine?”

    Alec didn’t respond for a long moment. “I think ‘observes’ may be more accurate than celebrates,” he eventually clarified carefully.
