    Summary

    "It's October first,” Stiles says.

    “So it is.”

    He taps his chin a bit dubiously, and then sips his pumpkin spice nice and slow, as if he’s considering all his possibilities. Across the room, an old man frowns at the two of them sitting there – maybe because they’re homos, or maybe because Stiles is the local witch doctor. Either way, Stiles pays it no mind and simply winks in the old man’s direction before turning his eyes back onto Derek. “My witchy powers are in full force in this dark month.”

    “Can’t we just carve pumpkins and put decorations up like everyone else?”

    Summary

    Alec suddenly realized this was the longest he and Magnus had been apart for reasons that weren’t life or death. He hadn’t heard Magnus’s voice in eight days. He hadn’t seen him or smelled him or touched him in eight days. He hadn’t kissed him in eight days.

    This is a companion piece to Force of Nature, but can be read separately.

    Summary

    A note from the past causes Magnus to contemplate the loves of his long life, and leads to an unexpected turning point in his relationship with Alec.

    Or, Why Magnus Never Married

    ***

    “Meaning well is not well enough,” Ragnor said to Magnus in some shabby French café several decades ago. “You remember what Simone said. ‘The danger is not that the soul doubts there’s any bread, but lest, by a lie, it persuades itself that it is not hungry.’ My dear friend, there is no bread. Do not pretend any of these well-meaning ‘acts of love’ feed that starving soul of yours.”

    “That’s not exactly how she said it. I do believe you’re paraphrasing.”

    “And you’re avoiding the issue, which I’ll allow because I’ve eaten too much and need to concentrate on digestion. But I hope you're listening too."
