  1. 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.)

    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

    Soul creatures were old magic, and for all the years of study, still not well understood. They were reflections of souls cast across time and space, and the only thing everyone agreed on was that they protected their soulmate, keeping them safe until the two could meet.
    Magnus had lived lifetimes watching the large black wolf come and go, holding his breath until the moment he could stay.
    Alec can't remember life without the cat, his truest ally and his port in the storm through every hardship he'd weathered.
    When they are both captured by Valentine's men, it feels like the end of everything, but it could be just the beginning.

    Summary

    The sibling bonding rules are as follows:

    1. At least twice a week, the three of them have to meet up outside of their shared apartment and do something without their phones attached to their ears/hands.
    2. One Max-appropriate activity per week must also be scheduled, provided Max is available and not grounded for setting something on fire again.
    3. Nobody is allowed to veto an activity unless it pertains to actual, literal trauma.

    Curse Alec's desire to laminate everything even mildly official. He wonders if either of his siblings would notice if he printed a fresh copy with slightly altered rules, re-laminated it, and replaced the existing copy? He could change rule three to say, “nobody is allowed to veto an activity unless it pertains to actual, literal trauma, or just a whole fucking boatload of embarrassment.” The printer is in his room - as is the laminator. Nobody would have to know.

    Hot Yoga Guy is going to kill Alec and it's all his siblings' fault.

    Summary

    'You're a wizard, Harry' is easier to hear from a half-giant when you're eleven, rather than from some kids on a tube platform when you're seventeen and late for work.
