  4. Summary

    "Ah, love, let us be true
    To one another! for the world, which seems
    To lie before us like a land of dreams,
    So various, so beautiful, so new,
    Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,
    Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;
    And we are here as on a darkling plain
    Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
    Where ignorant armies clash by night."

    ~ Matthew Arnold, Dover Beach

    Summary

    When Alec visits a BDSM club to do some research for a book he's writing, he doesn't expect to find an attractive and kind Dom in the club's owner. As Magnus teaches Alec the ropes, literally, Alec finds himself falling hard, wondering if Magnus could see him as more than a client. As their relationship progresses, Alec learns Magnus bares scars, physical and mental, from his past that make it difficult for him to be vulnerable. But Alec is nothing if not dedicated and he intends to prove just how much Magnus deserves to be treated well, inside and outside of their scenes.

    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).

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Dark, moody—a plot driven by murky weather and murkier circumstances.

    Alec is Sentinel—a super. Specifically, he’s a Corporate—an agency-bound superhero for hire, at the beck and call of shady politicians and shadier corporations. When he meets Nightlock, an unaffiliated and very powerful vigilante, he teeters on the knife edge between despising his guts and trusting him more than anyone else in his grim, gritty existence.

    Then, bodies start to surface—mutilated and left on display in the streets of New York. There’s a serial killer on the loose. A serial killer targeting supers.

    Alec fights to maintain the fragile balance between his daytime identity investigating the deaths with the bafflingly handsome, heartbreakingly dedicated journalist Magnus Bane, and his nighttime identity chasing unseen enemies alongside the mysterious and unexpectedly sage Nightlock.

    A lovely series of short stories that depict Alec & Magnus's life together—from the first night they explored their connection, to their 100th anniversary as immortal warlock husbands. There are ups and downs, tears and laughter. It's an absolutely beautiful story framed around some very wonderfully written smut scenes. Highly recommend!

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Magnus is a fashion-blogging city boy, grieving the recent loss of his mother. When he meets Alec, the veterinarian in the town his mother called home, Magnus immediately despises him. But Nashville, Indiana is a small town, and the two can't avoid running into each other during Magnus's reluctant six-month stay—repeatedly. Especially since their houses are so closely located.
    It doesn't take long for the two to realize that their chemistry translates to more than just snarky arguments.
