    Summary

    Magnus’ bed hasn’t felt like his own without Alec in it. His body hasn’t felt the same without Alec’s warmth pressed up against it. From the second Alec takes his hand, Magnus doesn’t waste any time fixing either of those things. [Coda to 2x20]
    -

    When Magnus asks, “Do you want to get out of here?” it really, truly isn’t his intention to imply anything. He doesn’t even know what he expects. To finally pull Alec back into the loft, maybe. Sit on the sofa, conjure up another drink. Maybe rest his hand on the steady, reassuring beat of Alec’s heart and lean in to kiss his waiting lips.

    Summary

    It’s Rafael’s wedding day, which makes for a somewhat hectic morning for the Lightwood-Banes. Things are pretty close to perfect though – if only Magnus could stop teasing Alec about the most embarrassing incident of his life that took place in this very same hall at the Institute over twenty-five years ago.
    -

    Alec says, "Raf called in a panic this morning and there's a slight situation with the wedding.”

    Magnus is instantly on alert.

    “Of course there is,” says Max, eyes moving heavenward. “Typical.”

    “Excuse me, no, not typical,” says Magnus. “I planned this wedding, and things don't go wrong when I plan weddings.”

    Summary

    "I am not playing the part of your fearless boyfriend, and you're not playing prom queen. I am your bodyguard and this is what I do. You will trust me to get Erica out safely or I will strip you of any illusions you still have that I'm a skinny wretch and put you in the trunk, are we clear on that?"

    "That's unprofessional."

    Silence.

    Derek grunts. Stiles nods, satisfied.

    Summary

    “You’re quiet,” he said.

    “I’m lonely,” Isabelle replied, and for a moment, it felt more honest than any words she’d spoken since she was seven years old.

    Summary

    Lust, Alec had learnt to know, could be a powerful thing. It took over your body, clouding your judgment and your mind, turning you into a powerless witness to your own desires. With time, he had also learnt that lust and love could sometimes be two very different things, not necessarily linked together. This was not one of those times.
