    Summary

    Alec, having completed his term paper yet unable to sleep, decides to stand on the fire escape of his brownstone apartment to wind down. Enter a drunk Magnus Bane, who sees the opportunity to re-enact Shakespeare's most iconic scene and seizes it, intent on wooing the attractive man above him.

    “But soft, what light through yonder window breaks?
    It is the east and Juliet is the sun!
    Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,
    Who is already sick and pale with grief
    That thou her maid art far more fair than she.”

    Summary

    That first step into the infirmary takes more strength than Maryse thought she had. She doesn’t want to get closer and see just how thready her son’s lifeline is, doesn’t want to face what the other end of the phone call promised less than an hour ago. As she nears the bed, she sees the claw marks in Alec’s side, stretching from just below his ribs to just above his hip. They’re vicious streaks of black-streaked crimson and a sob builds in her throat.

    Venomous ichor, she thinks and the pit in her stomach digs a little deeper, leaves her nauseous and terrified.

    Summary

    When Magnus Bane walks into Alec’s third grade classroom, a scowl printed on his face and a permanent chip on his shoulder, Alec has no idea that, one day, this scrawny smart-ass will mean the world to him.

    He has even less idea that he’ll mean just as much to Magnus.

    In which Magnus and Alec are destined for each other, everyone around them can see it, and sometimes, love is found in the most unexpected places.

    (Childhood best friends to lovers AU, set over fifteen years.)

    Summary

    It was one among a hundred scars that marked him a soldier, after all, and it faded into the background most days.

    But Alec knows what it is and he can still feel a trace of the buzz that had lit through his veins. He doesn’t think about it most days. That reality feels so far removed from his life now that it doesn’t even seem like him anymore.

    There are these reminders, though, always lurking in his periphery.

    Or, Alec's scars are more than skin deep.

    Summary

    What he sees steals the very breath from his lungs. It makes his chest shudder and the back of his throat aches in a sorrow so profound that he’s worried his knees will buckle for a split second.

    He feels like an old man as he bends down slowly and gingerly picks up the item, ignoring the arrow for the little rainbow flag that’s laying innocuously on the sidewalk.
