    Summary

    Alec Lightwood is the most beautiful and talented classically trained ballet dancer at the New York Arts Institute. He’s pressured by everyone in his life to carry the honor of the Lightwood name in the New York performing arts world, he feels trapped in a box. Magnus Bane is the most liked, respected, gorgeous, and innately talented hip-hop freestyle dancer who was accepted to the Institute on scholarship. He puts on the happy face for everyone around him, but inside he is broken and badly scarred by his past. When Alec finds himself wanting to branch out and add free movement to his final senior piece he seeks the help of the one person he’s been secretly drawn to for years. The one person he knows lives very much outside of the box.

    Summary

    Alec couldn’t remember the last time the Lightwood mansion had been so spirited.
    Even when their parents were away on business, the Lightwoods often had guests staying at the mansion, although it usually wasn’t for longer than for a night of festivities in the peak of the summer. Apparently - or so he had gathered from Isabelle’s fondly annoyed and persistent claims - this guest was special, not only because he wasn’t meant to stay for a single night, and not even because he wasn’t a potential business partner.
    “He is a celebrity,” Isabelle told him when he lifted an eyebrow at her, silently leveling her with a dubious look.

    The Victorian AU no one asked for, where Magnus and Alec fall in love through chess, poetry and whispers in the night, but nothing is that simple.

    Summary

    In ballet, a pas de deux is a dance duet in which two dancers perform ballet steps together. A grand pas de deux is a structured pas de deux that commonly has five parts: an entrée, an adagio, two variations (a solo for each dancer), and a coda. It is a set of dances that share a common theme, often symbolic of a love story or the partnership inherent in love, with the dancers portraying expressions of affectionate feelings and thoughts between romantic partners. It is considered the pièce de résistance—the most remarkable dance in a ballet. This is Magnus and Alec's pièce de résistance.
