“It takes a rare kind of courage to be so explicitly vulnerable, and it’s not the kind of courage Jace has ever specialized in. He knows it when he sees it, though, every time Magnus stands in front of Alec with his big, glittery heart on his sleeve.”

'The message is incredibly explicit and surprisingly specific and nothing like Alec has ever received before. Not that he's opposed to the suggestion of the words and the promise they hold. But the number, even with the New York area code, isn't one he recognises. Alec's not sure what the etiquette is for responding to an unsolicited sext. Is there even etiquette for that?'
Or the one in which Alec receives a sext from an unknown number and something pushes him to sext back.
“Hey there,” Alec says in the lowest, sexiest voice he can manage. It sounds vaguely disinterested but some people get off on that.
“Hi,” the voice says.
“Ready to have some fun?”
The voice makes a small, sad noise.
“Or not?” Alec tries hastily. He gets paid regardless of what they're talking about. “We can just chat for a while.”
“What’s your name,” the voice says finally.
“Uh, Chad,” Alec says. He was drunk when he picked his name, just as he was drunk when he answered the job wanted ad. He should have picked something sexy like Tristan, but he’s forever Chad now, the douchiest phone sex operator in history. He balances his bowl of macaroni carefully on his stomach and sneaks a quick bite.
“You don’t sound like a Chad,” the voice says doubtfully.
“Why the hell not?” Alec says before he can stop himself, mouth full of pasta.
“--are you eating?”
“No,” Alec lies and swallows.
Alec is a bored phone sex operator. Bafflingly, Magnus just wants to talk about music.

“Totally whipped,” Jace says, even as he slings an arm over Alec’s shoulders to keep him steady on the way outside.
“Like cream,” Alec sighs.
Or: 5 times Alec tells his siblings how amazing Magnus is + 1 time Magnus finds out.
Magnus smiles, cheer uniform the brightest of red. “What can I do for you, Alec?” There’s a momentary pause, a breath passing through Alec's lips, and his feet shifts onto the grass of the football field. He feels a hundred eyes on him. He finally says, a soft, pleading request, “Can I kiss you?”
Where Alec Lightwood decides he wants to come out, and Magnus Bane decides to extend a helping hand.
