    Summary

    "Alec Lightwood? That boy puts family and duty before anything else. But he’s smart, Magnus. Very smart. And your succession is not as yet secure. You could do with someone very smart on your side. And someone whose brother is in the Palace Guard.”

    “I can’t help but feel they’d be more on our side if we hadn’t just ordered them into servitude,” he retorted and turned back to the Lightwoods only to find Alec standing not two feet away.

    “My lord,” he said and bowed.

     

    Two years ago, Magus returned to his father's kingdom to find his old friend - well, possibly more than a friend - Alec Lightwood pressed into service in his household. In those two years, Magnus has fallen deeper and deeper for him, but can't break through Alec's walls of propriety.

    Now, in the run up to the Seelie Queen's visit, more and more is happening within the court that could push Alec out of his grasp forever, from potential arranged marriages to his own father wanting to steal Alec to his own bed. And Alec still has no idea what a simple touch from him can do to Magnus - but is about to find out.

    “I like pretty things,” Magnus said, lazily moving his hand to gesture at the treasure around them. “You’re very pretty.”

    Summary

    “Three weeks,” Derek says.

    “Still don’t want to,” Stiles says.

    “I’ll pay you,” Derek says, and that… that has Stiles interested. Alf’s Antique’s may be a great job, but it’s not a high-paying job, and half of Stiles’s tuition is coming from financial aid, so…

    “How much,” Stiles asks, “are we talking here? Because I know your family, dude. And it’ll be kind of awkward after.“

    “My family thinks you’re some sort of fucking gift to the world,” Derek seethes, like he’s jealous, “they’ll probably be pissed at me when we break it off, so don’t worry about that. Five hundred bucks.”

    “A thousand,” Stiles says, because screw ethics. Also, the Hale family is loaded. Derek can deal.

    Summary

    Derek saves a nymph from being somebody's Christmas decoration. As a reward, the nymph grants him a twig of mistletoe.

    If Derek had known the mistletoe would come to life and goad him into kissing people at random, he might have tried to refuse.

    *

     

    Of course, Derek doesn’t notice. Not at first. How would he, when he’s alone? The mistletoe can’t do anything to him when he’s alone. It just sits in the house, hung above the fireplace, next to his tiny Christmas tree. Only when he shows up at Scott’s to return Melissa’s stepladder—Lydia and Stiles insisted he put up Christmas lights—does he realize the gift’s true purpose.

     

    Melissa lifts one corner of her mouth in a wry smile and tells him, “You’ve got a little something right—” and reaches up above his head.
