    Summary

    After an accident during a demon attack claims the life of someone he cares about, Magnus leaves New York and everyone in it behind.

    One hundred years later, he gets a letter from a now adult Madzie telling him that she seems to have run afoul of the elusive Winter Court. Something powerful is after her but when Magnus finally comes face to face with the danger, it's not what, or who, he expected.

    Summary

    After returning the Mortal Cup to the Clave and retrieving Jocelyn Fairchild, Alec wants to enjoy his time with Magnus and to navigate their new relationship—without Shadow World politics interfering. However, with Valentine out there, the allegation that warlocks may be on his side, and the Council taking an interest in the New York Institute, peace isn’t on the cards. Still, what goes down must come up—or was it the other way around.

    Or, love in the time of Clave and Downworld tension, complicated relationships, and an increasingly complex Shadow World.

    Summary

    Gruffly, Ragnor crosses his hands. "It's quite like that fool to save us all and get cursed himself. Four hundred years of trouble-making, and he never changes."

    The breath gets caught in Alec's throat. "Magnus was cursed?" he gasps.

    Or, the classic tale of Sleeping Beauty, but with a Malec twist.

    Summary

    Seven days after he's kidnapped from his apartment, leaving behind a mess of shattered furniture and broken wards, Magnus Bane reappears, naked and bloody and without warning, in the middle of his best friend's living room.

    (or: Magnus is taken. Magnus comes back. The in-between is terrible. Alec thinks the after might be worse.)

    Summary

    Our own. No matter how hard Alec and the others here had been working to fix things between the Shadow and Downworld, there was still a rift. It was still us and them. Slips of the tongue that showed how ingrained this racism was in their culture, how long it had been there that it was second nature to so many.

     

    An AU where Alec doesn't meet Magnus until after he marries Lydia, and doesn't start to get to know him until after they divorce.

    Summary

    "Magnus could tell Alexander wanted to say more. Alexander was a quiet man until he wasn’t, until politics or passion demanded his voice. And then he spoke so many beautiful words, words that Magnus practiced in his mind until they were engraved there. But this ritual was old, demanding old words. Alexander’s adherence meant more right now than his own words could. It was respect for a culture denied it for far too long. The action was a vow, as much as the words themselves were vows, that Alexander would not just honour the Downworld but join in it wholly."

    Or, Magnus Lightwood-Bane, Consular High Warlock of the Americas, crowns his husband Consort.

    Summary

    Alec has heard the legends of Magnus Bane. He knows all the tales and he’s read all the records of his downfall. The High Warlock of Brooklyn who became so hungry for power that he began to mistreat the very warlocks who sought his help. It’s been a hundred years since then, and when a sudden rift opening between realms brings an onslaught of lesser demons, so too does it bring Magnus Bane, insatiable and vengeful for the power and people that locked him away in Edom. As newly appointed Head of the New York Institute, it’s Alec’s job to protect the residents of New York from one of the greatest Demons he’s ever faced. Only, he has no idea how, and maybe things aren't what they seem.

    Summary

    Here’s how it starts—Maia gets arrested two blocks from home. Turns out that she may have dropped her manifesto protesting against some of the Clave’s ridiculous laws. Not that she’s going to admit to anything but, really, she’s pretty much screwed. Also, the Head of the New York Institute is freaking weird and clearly slightly insane. Companion one-shot to “every trick in the book” from Maia’s POV.

    Summary

    Magnus remembered the day he lost Alexander.

    Alexander died young; he was forty-eight. They were lucky he lived that long, at least he got to see his kids grow up into older teenage years.

    It was a long time coming, Magnus knew, even Rafe and Max knew. Alec had been pushing for law changes and a rewriting of the Accords, he pushed for Downworlders to be able to legally govern themselves. He pushed for everything the Clave was against.

    And they killed him for it.

    Summary

    Where Clary doesn't visit Pandemonium that night. Instead, she heads home earlier to talk to Jocelyn. Meanwhile, Alec steals some time alone to sort out his thoughts after the mission at Pandemonium. This sets off a sequence of events where Alec meets Clary and Magnus first.

    Or, how the story might have gone if Alec and Magnus got to know (and fall for) each other from the start, and Clary had a different introduction to the Shadow World. Featuring Clave and Downworlder politics, Lightwood family tension, and a Valentine still bent on his crusade to change the world.

    Things play out differently. Not necessarily in a bad way.

    Summary

    In his time as both Acting Head and later as official Head of the Institute, Alec Lightwood had dealt with a lot of people. Not just shadowhunters, but various Downworlders. It’d been necessary as the war with Valentine had raged on, and as the newest fireball in their life had sort of smashed her way through all the barriers between shadowhunters and Downworlders.

    Because of her connections to them, he’d had a few dealings with the local wolf pack, and through her friend he’d been forced to deal with the leader of the local vampire coven.

    But there was one that Alec hadn’t met. Magnus Bane, the High Warlock of Brooklyn.

    Summary

    PODFIC:

    Each chapter is a podfic for one of my Consular High Warlock fics, read by 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.

     

    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.”

     

    Chapter 3: Intolerable

    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.
