    4. Forced Marriage AU

    The day Maryse and Robert Lightwood announced to their eldest son they were looking for a suitable woman to marry him to was the day he stood up for himself for the first time of his life and told them he was gay. One week later, Maryse and Robert Lightwood announced to their eldest son they were looking for a suitable man to marry him to.
    .
    Magnus could refuse of course, as he had always done, but it wouldn't do this time. The Council could make his life pretty hard, strip him of his status for a start, and he liked his status very much. He liked the privileges, the connections, and the possibility to do anything he wanted. Anything but refuse an arranged marriage.

    This is going to be fun.

    Bookmark Notes:

    Alec Lightwood was beautiful, and looked like he wanted to be anywhere in the universe but here and now. That was at least two things they had in common. A bit thin for a relationship, but hey, everything could happen.

    Well, apart from him getting along with a Shadowhunter.

    "Behave, Magnus. You know I'm reporting this back to the council,” Cat whispered close to his ear.

    "You could always lie."

    “Yeah, but they surely won't, so don't count on it,” she countered, pointing at the Lightwood party. “Just be nice."

    "Warlock Bane, this is our son Alexander. Alexander, meet warlock Bane."

    "I even have a real name, if you could believe it. I’m Magnus, maybe you could use it, seeing that we're going to be married and all."

    Maryse looked already close to a nervous breakdown – for her to have to kiss a warlock's ass was probably the worst thing possible. The boy just rolled his eyes.

    “Then please call me Alec, like only the people who give a damn about me do.”

    That earned him the same murderous gaze from Maryse, and Magnus found himself smiling against all odds. Alec caught his gaze and smiled briefly too.

    Well, he could probably add “enjoy annoying Maryse” to the list of their common point.

    “Let’s get it over with,” Maryse said curtly, raising an expectant eyebrow at Magnus. He just rolled his eyes but complied – he was as eager as her to get out of the Institute. He produced a ring box out of his coat pocket and went to stand in front of Alec Lightwood.

    Now for those forced things, there was no need of course to be traditional. It usually looked more like a business transaction than a marriage proposal. It was strange that they even hold on to the principle of the proposal. They could have done this over the phone just as well. But since they insisted on being a little formal, Magnus wouldn’t pass the occasion to be way more than that.

    He dropped to one knee. Alec looked mildly horrified, staring at Magnus like he had grown a second head. Magnus tried not to laugh.

    “Alexander Alec Lightwood, those seven minutes we have spent together have been the most magical times of my long life. I can’t imagine us being apart now, and I hope you’ll agree. Alexander Alec Lightwood, would you make your parents and my superiors the happiest people in existence and accept to marry me?”

    The boy rolled his eyes but he was clearly amused too. The others weren’t – his parents looked ready to burst and Catarina was shaking her head with a resigned expression. The Lightwood girl looked entertained at least. He winked at her and she stifled a laugh – that was a small win.

    He locked gaze with the boy. He looked resigned too, and angry, but not at Magnus in particular. Maybe they could find an arrangement then. They would have to anyway. He sighed deeply and waited enough time for it to be awfully awkward and for Magnus’s knee to hurt.

    “If I must,” he finally breathed out.

    The collective sigh of relief told Magnus that he hadn’t been the only one they expected to ruin it all. He jumped back to his feet with the widest smile possible and turned to the Lightwood parents.

    “He said yes!” he exclaimed with a fake delighted tone. Maryse and Robert didn’t dignify this with an answer.
