    Summary

    Christmas is his favorite time of the year but Alec has barely had time to buy presents let alone enjoy the holiday season. December seems to have lasted the blink of an eye and Alec's shoulders hunch as he realizes morosely that most of this year is a blur of emergencies and rounds and consultations.

    His gaze snags on a bakery display as he walks past. The window is dressed with multicolored lights and garland wrapping around the edges. The display case is full and Alec’s mouth waters just at the sight.

    Without conscious thought, Alec is reaching for the door to Bane's Bakery, eager to see if the interior is just as whimsical and welcoming as the outside.

    Summary

    The bartender considers him for a moment before holding out the hand that was over his just a second before. “I’m Magnus, bartender extraordinaire. While I certainly wouldn’t mind calling you pretty boy for the rest of the evening, I think it only fair that you share your name, too. Don’t you?”

    Slowly, Alec reaches out and grasps Magnus’s hand in a poor imitation of a handshake. He meets Magnus’s eyes and knows they both know that this is a mere prelude for what’s to come.

    “Alec,” he says slowly and watches as Magnus’s smile deepens.

    “Well, Alec, my shift ends in an hour. Wait for me?”

    Summary

    Magnus takes a minute to look at the exterior of the shop and likes what he sees. It’s October and the window display has autumn-themed cookbooks out intermingled with Halloween decorations, including painted pumpkins and a witch's hat. It’s cute, cheerful yet practical, with a touch of casual elegance.

    The door is black with a frosted glass window. Etched into glass is the name of the store.

    Lightwood Books. Est. 2016.

    Summary

    “What’s going on little man?” she asks. She takes a seat on the bed and pats it to invite Alec to do the same.

    Alec clambers up into the bed and looks at the floor for a few seconds. She’s getting worried about what he could have possibly done-- ate all the cookies in the kitchen?-- when Alec looks up at her with impossibly guileless eyes.

    “Can boys have boyfriends?”

    Or 5 times that Alec was ashamed of his sexuality and one time he wasn't.
