    Summary

    [“There’s this thing that you do,” says Alec, exasperated. “This power you have that makes you look indestructible.”

    “You know that’s not true,” says Magnus, his breath warm against Alec’s chin.

    “I do,” replies Alec, “But even then … there are times when I’m not so sure.”]

    --

    1992, New York, a city hanging on to politically-tinged Cold War feelings. Alec Lightwood is a Corporate - a superhero for hire - jostling with a secret identity, holding on to a sense of a normal life, and the fact vigilantes keep turning up murdered in the gutters with no explanation.

    Things can only get worse when Magnus - an investigative journalist - starts peeling back Alec’s carefully-crafted mask … and then there’s the mysterious vigilante with the power to move things with his mind who keeps turning up wherever Alec goes - Alec just can’t cut a break.

    A neonoir slow-burn superheroes AU about identity, truth, and falling in love without knowing someone’s real name (ft. everyone has superpowers because I couldn’t help myself).

    Summary

    “Turkey and Greece? Luxury cruise ship that you don’t even have to pay for?” Catarina scoffs, pushing her blue-tipped braids behind her shoulders, “The Magnus I know would never pass up an opportunity like that.”

    And then she gets this knowing look in her eyes, setting her nail file down. “Unless of course, there’s an underlying reason. And if that underlying reason just happens to have dark hair, and hazel eyes, and ‘the crooked smile that sets fire to every vein in your body.’ That’s what you said, if I remember correctly, hm?”

    //

    It’s been twelve years since Magnus and Alec last saw each other, ever since everything went downhill. Ever since they were forced apart, separated by continents and oceans, putting their love through the most difficult of tests. Now they’re going to be face to face with each other again, on a cruise ship, where hundreds of miles of water in every direction prevent any possible escape.

    Only time will tell if they figure things out this time.

    Summary

    “Alec, do you remember that story we read from one of Dot’s books when we were younger?”
    Alec stared at Jace, bewildered, “what story?”
    “The one where an angel came from above and gave everyone a soulmate?” Jace’s expression was oddly serious.
    Alec searched through his memories, and then –
    “Oh that.” Jace nodded, “wasn’t it just a very old fairy tale or something?”
    “Dot said otherwise though. Something about whatever happened in a dream only happened in real life as well when that particular dream was shared by a pair of soulmates.”

    In a world where soulmates were considered myths, Alec Lightwood was lucky to have found his in the shape of Magnus Bane. But life wasn't going to go easy on them as Magnus' past and new threats came haunting at the same time.

    Summary

    “Max what the hell, I was worried sick.” The aforementioned adonis straightens—And well yup—He’s all long limbs, and Kaleidoscope eyes, and lips that really honest to god should be outlawed to being placed on such a glorious creature.

    “Alec! Alec look! I met Magnus Bane! Izzy is going to be so jealous!”

    At that, Alec jerks back, as if personally fronted by the introduction.

    “Oh yeah, I forgot you think he’s cute—“

     

    --OR--

    Five times Max is a little shit, and the one time that Magnus admits he loves the kid.
