    Summary

    Magnus Bane doesn't have a lot of friends, and he's not what people at Idris High would consider 'cool'. Recovering from a heartbreak and struggling with his anti-lgbt grandfather, he's trying to really focus on his acting hobby so he doesn't end up going back into the dark hole he had been on a few months earlier.
    Alec Lightwood, in the same year as Magnus, looks like a supermodel and comes from a very influent family of lawyers, which makes him a part of the popular gang in school. He lost his sight when he was 6, so he can't fully wrap his head around the fact that such a big part of his life in school is shaped by the way he looks; and it actually really annoys him sometimes. Alec's life is driven by rules and tradition, and he's okay with it, for the most part; however, he wants some independence, and while searching for it, he stumbles across Magnus, who's just as repulsed by other people's standards and expectations as him. They find themselves inevitably gravitating towards each other, but seeing is deceiving, and sometimes you need to look within to embrace what's right in front of you.

    Summary

    If Magnus' infernal father had been less of a pompous ass, his little plan to capture a heartbroken, devastated version of his son to rule by his side might have actually worked.

    Fortunately for Magnus, his father was rather predictable on all accounts.

    Summary

    “Who are you?”
    The boy looked up; straight into Magnus eyes. Holy shit.
    Jace Wayland had never been a jealous person. Not ever. Especially not over Alec. Never over Alec. So, why in the hell was he glaring at the stupid sparkly warlock who was checking out his parabatai with more than a glint of lust in his eye?
    Magnus raised a hand and caught the book before it hit his chest, feeling his lips life into a smile. I Haven't met anyone quite like you before Alexander.

    Summary

    Alec spends most of his days studying law, writing articles for a local newspaper to pay for his apartment, and trying not to completely break down after his baby brother has been diagnosed with leukaemia. He’s a busy man, there’s no time for rest, and there’s for sure no time for love on his schedule.

    Every single of Magnus’ days is the same. Work, home, drink and a marathon of Project Runway. Every day besides Wednesdays, when he comes to a local hospital as a volunteer and offers some comfort for its patients. Even if his life is boring, it’s stable. And he definitely needs stable after his last relationship. He’s not looking for love. It’s still too soon.

    But when fate makes both of the men cross paths, they start to feel something special. Something they have never felt before. And even with their contrasting lives, there’s always time for some love, right?

    Summary

    Magnus Bane is invited to spend the weekend with his bestie Clary Fray in the Lightwood family cabin because she is crushing on Jace.

    Although Magnus does not want to go, he had his eyes opened when he meets Alec Lightwood who is also being reluctantly dragged along for the ride.

    NOTE: Magnus suffers from panic attacks in this fic so if that triggers you please don't read.
    Also, there are mentions of an off-screen character death - again avoid if that's a trigger.

    Hope you enjoy!

    Summary

    deus ex machina- to solve a seemingly intractable problem in a plot by adding in an unexpected character, object, or situation
    __________

    “Yeah no I’m fine Magnus” he says, with a forced smile that he hopes looks believable before shutting and locking his drawer. Magnus is silent as he still stands by the door, eyes observing and boring into Alec. Alec shifted his feet as he looked at the ground, carefully avoiding Magnus’ eyes

    Summary

    "What you say is true, we are from the enemy pack. But we are going to the Seelie Court for a reason; to get away from our pack. We want a fresh start. And although it looks as if we have nothing to give in return for your hospitality, we do." He said smirking. Magnus suddenly felt uneasy. Something was wrong with the way he was smirking.

    "And what would that be?" Magnus asked, unamused.

    "The best night of your life,"

    Summary

    If there’s a problem, and there’s always a problem, usually at least 5--unless Clary and Jace are involved, in which case, more like 27--then Alec fixes it. He identifies the problem, and he makes it go away. That’s the job.

    Here’s the problem: Magnus is desperately unhappy without his magic.

    Summary

    Silence fills the air again. While Alec is drinking his eighth beer, he realises that maybe he isn’t so weak after all. He can take his alcohol just fine. However, out of nowhere, angst hits him and he feels like he needs to speak or his chest will explode. Alec slams the empty bottle on the table and takes a deep breath. “It’s not fucking fair,” he says firmly, “we’re dating and yet, he thinks it’s totally fine to keep his exes’ stuff inside a box, which, by the way, he goes through everyday!” he laughs ironically. “And I am supposed to accept the fact that he thinks about other people while I’m getting ready to take him on a romantic dinner!”

    or

    The one where Alec finds Magnus' memory box and doesn't accept that he goes through it every morning.

    Summary

    “Remember when I told you I couldn’t see the future?” Magnus licks his lips. “I still can’t, by the way,” he laughs, “but anyways. Somehow, I always knew you would be in my future, Alexander. It felt natural, like you were born to be by my side and nothing in the whole world could tear us apart because I knew that either ways you would always find your way back to me.” He says, as caresses Alec’s hand with him thumb. “That is why I never worried when we fell apart because this,” he points to them both, “this is meant to be.”
