    Summary

    Rapture ― a splendid city at the bottom of the ocean, isolated and free of the Clave’s restraints, where innovation is put above petty rules.

    In 1960, Rapture has long since fallen. Its former glory has been reduced to a haunting hellscape where twisted creatures reign, and child-accompanied demons roam the halls. For Alec, it poses a unique challenge ― especially when Jace goes missing, once they arrive in the city on a Clave-mandated mission. In the midst of it all is Magnus, on a mission of his own. Teaming up with Alec comes naturally, and with the help of a sympathetic stranger, they start making their way through the city and the horrors it has to offer. But -- while their friends on the surface work hard on mounting a rescue -- something much more troubling soon becomes clear: getting into Rapture is nowhere near as hard as getting back out.

    Summary

    Everyone is born with a heart line, a pigmented mark running from the heart down the left arm to the palm, which turns color when the person comes of age, telling them when it is time to seek their soulmate. Red indicates a romantic love, while blue is for platonic "heart-friends", as the minstrels called it.

    Uther had always told Arthur to ignore his heart line, that it wouldn't matter who his soulmate was; princes did not marry for love, after all. If was lucky, he'd be able to keep her as a mistress, so long as he did not get any children with her. Uther hated magic and would have urged Arthur to ignore the heart line anyway, if he could.

    Arthur wasn't sure his soulmate was really a woman despite Uther's assumptions. But Arthur's heart line hadn't even come into its full color yet, which meant he hadn't come of age in the eyes of the gods, despite being named crown prince by Uther. So it really didn't matter: whoever his soulmate was, he wasn't yet ready to meet them.

    Then one day his heart line comes in, and it's neither red nor blue.

    Summary

    aka Malec Marriage-of-Convenience AU

    Slightly canon-divergent through the end of season 2A, and then wildly canon-divergent.

    Alec and Magnus married to unite the Shadow World and prevent a war. Falling in love was just a happy coincidence.

    Now enemy and ally are getting harder to tell apart. Alec’s career is hanging by a very thin thread, they both have to prove to the rest of the Shadow World that they can deliver on their promises, and parties within and without are plotting to dismantle the alliance they’re trying to build.

    Can a marriage just starting to find its feet handle the strain of the choices they must make and the secrets they must keep?
