    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

    “Hi,” Magnus Bane semi-drawls, eyes half-lidded and blinking up at him (dare Alec say) enchantingly, “Are you my nurse?”

    “Yes.” Alec answers after a mind-focusing cough, “My name is Alec. I’ll be taking care of you today.”

    The corners of Magnus’ mouth lifts into a smile that gets Alec’s heart thrashing within its cage, his head lolling sideways against his pillow. He looks at him with eyes that are soft with sincerity.

    “You can take care of me any way you want, Alec.”

    Alec has been a nurse for five years, and he's pretty sure he's never seen anyone shoot his shot the way Magnus Bane has done the last hour. Alec looks at his watch.

    Jesus.

    He has eleven more hours of this shift to go.

    Summary

    “You are risking everything.” Alec whispers, finally opening his eyes and looking into Magnus’ own. When they are this close, he can see tiny specks of gold in the Prince’s dark irises. “You are going to lead Dorne into war with Valentine. For me.”

    “Oh, darling,” Magnus laughs a little and Alec feels his heart beat faster upon hearing the affectionate name. “If there was ever a good reason to start a war, it would be for love.”

    Where Valentine is the mad king, Magnus is the Prince of Dorne and Alec is definitely not the Helen of Troy.

Can a former firefighter and an expert in all things tea find something special together that neither believed possible? Spoilers — yes; yes, they can. Here's how it happens :)
