    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

    Tensions have been rising between the Clave and the Downworld to the brink of near revolution in the wake of Valentine's return. Magnus is asked to lead in these trying times, pushed to fight at the forefront of his people and the downworld as he has for centuries. Despite this, Magnus and Alec still meet and dance around with whatever is growing between them, time stretching into months of stolen interactions despite the swelling conflict, and fall in love. And Alec Lightwood still makes the decision to choose Magnus Bane.

    Or:

    A collection of moments in a time of growing tension Magnus and Alec share, and the product of their final choices

    Summary

    He had declared a night for the denizens of the shadow world, no mundanes and only those shadowhunters from the local institute who Alec had cleared to be there. Somewhere in the crowd Isabelle, Jace, Clary, and Simon were having fun. They’d told him that Alec wasn’t coming, he was “busy.” 

    Ch.2 Clary and the others, the things they see and they things they learn.

    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.
