    Summary

    “I give you permission to woo my brother,” Isabelle says seriously. “Please. Do it for the good of humanity.” Magnus places his hands over hers, which are still gripping his shoulders, and stares back at her with an intensity he’s not sure the subject requires.

    “This is in the top five weirdest conversations I’ve ever had,” he says gravely. “But thank you.”

    Magnus is a fashion designer. Alec is decidedly not. Magnus thinks that, despite the fundamental difference in their wardrobes, Alexander Lightwood is a mystery he'd rather like to solve. Possibly with his tongue.

    Summary

    It was no secret to anyone that Magnus Bane was one of the few warlocks who had no desire to find himself a dragon. But only a select few knew how much Magnus had once wanted one, or how his excitement had faded with each passing decade when he didn’t find the spark of the bond with any dragon he met. After a few centuries, he gave in to the belief that perhaps there just wasn’t a dragon meant for him out there.

    His friends insisted he was wrong. Warlocks weren’t meant to be without a dragon, they said. The fact that Magnus had lasted four hundred years without a bond was something of a marvel to the world. No warlock had gone beyond three centuries without finding one. Warlocks and dragons were meant to bond. It was how things had gone since the dawn of time.

     

    ... In which Magnus tries to pretend, and fate has other ideas

    Summary

    Magnus is turned into a dragon and appears to be stuck that way. (This is not how he pictured his Tuesday going.)

    Alec is called to handle a disturbance that involves a dragon and meets a creature that is scared and in need of protection.

    Within minutes of meeting each other, they are inseparable, with Alec taking responsibility for the small dragon, and Magnus taking advantage of the protection offered by the shadowhunter.

    Neither of them is expecting a convenient arrangement for them both to evolve into something much, much more.

    Summary

    Alec had always thought he’d known fear.

    Not just as a concept, but a living, breathing thing that existed inside him almost constantly. Those around him had taught him fear as a child. They’d told him of the demons that lurked in the dark, ready to take out anyone and everyone dear to him, and he’d been taught to work past that fear so he could do what needed to be done. They’d taught him to acknowledge it, embrace it, and move beyond it, until Alec did it instinctively, until that fear became almost nothing. A small thing barely even acknowledged.

    Alec had thought he’d known what fear was. That he’d felt, breathed, tasted it, a memory that would always remain burned into him in those deep, dark places where he hid all his hurt.

    He was wrong.

    Every time he thought he’d been truly afraid, life seemed to find a way to rise up and prove to him just how wrong he was. How much more fear there was for him to feel.

    It’d been Alec’s almost constant companion this past week. Ever since the evening where he’d gotten a phone call from Catarina, and she’d said those words to him, the words that had changed everything: “Magnus is missing.”

    Summary

    Magnus Bane had met Alec Lightwood 6 months ago at his New York fashion show event. Since then the two men had become close in so many ways but just not in the way either of them wanted. Alec was too oblivious to see that the fashion designer had been flirting shamelessly with him for months, and Magnus mistook this as not caring. Luckily for the two oblivious idiots, their friends make plans to force the two of them together over the festive period.
