  3. Summary

    When Magnus Bane, famous model-turned-fashion designer and beloved celebrity, meets NYC cop Alec Lightwood, sparks fly.

    Dating someone from an entirely contrasting world is never easy, however, and negotiating the ups and downs of their relationship is certainly never going to get dull.

    (Or: In which Magnus is a celebrity, Alec is his grumpy cop boyfriend, and sometimes, the world really hates them, even though they love each other to pieces.)

  4. Summary

    In which Magnus and Alec confront the trials and tribulations of adolescence head-on, surrounded by the wonderful world of magic and ghosts and moving staircases in the form of Howarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

    (Or: the Harry Potter AU that nobody asked for but we're indulging in)

  5. Summary

    A collection of unrelated codas (and perhaps the occasional one-shot) that slot into canon. (AKA my self-indulgent collection of angsty and fluffy scenes that I feel the show is missing...)

    Summary

    Merlin spent the week and a half that Arthur was gone splitting his time between crafting careful explanations that never ended up explaining the important things, the things that would make Arthur listen, and making half-baked plans to escape to Ealdor. He found a number of fire-proofing spells that would have no effect if they decided to cut his head off, and figured out how to adapt an invulnerability spell he had been trying to find a way to cast on Arthur without him noticing so that it would protect him from being decapitated, but it would have no effect on anything but metal. Despite all his frantic searching, he did not find a teleportation spell, because that would have been too simple and if there was one thing Merlin had learned in his years at Camelot, it was that nothing was ever simple.

    Summary

    Alec emerges from one of the bathroom stalls already fully dressed in a gray suit, plain white dress shirt, and hair neatly combed.

    He looks like he always does, which is to say: painfully handsome and angry at the world.

    A week into his new living arrangements and Magnus has realized that no matter where Izzy goes, she wears towering stilettos that hurt Magnus just to look at them, Jace is a mostly harmless douchebag, and Alec is a big mystery, their very own Phantom of the Loft.
