    Summary

    «C’è questa cosa che fai» dice Alec, esasperato. «Questo potere che hai che ti fa sembrare indistruttibile».
    «Lo sai che non è vero» dice Magnus. Il suo respiro è caldo contro il mento di Alec.
    «Lo so» ribatte Alec. «Ma comunque… ci sono delle volte in cui non ne sono così sicuro».

    1992, New York, una città che continua ad aggrapparsi a sentimenti venati dalle tensioni della Guerra Fredda. Alec Lightwood è un Corporate – un supereroe che lavora su commissione – cerca di barcamenarsi tra un’identità segreta, la necessità di aggrapparsi ad una parvenza di vita normale e il fatto che i vigilante continuano a comparire ammazzati nei bassifondi senza un’apparente spiegazione.
    Le cose non possono che peggiorare quando Magnus – un giornalista investigativo – inizia a rimuovere la maschera che Alec si è attentamente costruito… e poi c’è quel misterioso vigilante con il potere della psicocinesi che continua ad apparire ovunque Alec vada – Alec non riesce proprio a tirare il fiato.
    A Cold Night for Good Deeds è una AU sui superereoi, slow-burn e neonoir, che parla di identità, verità e innamorarsi senza conoscere il vero nome di una persona.

    Summary

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

    “You know that’s not true,” says Magnus.

    “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

    Magnus has been in a writing slump for way to long, that is until his flatmate suggests that he interviews Alexander Lightwood, the captain of the swim team and all round goody two shoes. Magnus expects that following Alec around all day will be boring and a waist of time but as he starts to unravel who Alec really is he finds himself falling for him.

    Or...

    Alec has never allowed himself to date, never mind fall in love, it was far too risky. The introduction of student journalist Magnus Bane flips everything he believed in on its head as not only does he start opening up to the new person in his life but finds himself falling for him as well.

    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.
