    Summary

    ok, so, when a show BRINGS UP a term like Virgin Shadowhunter Energy, and then the plot around said term MAKES NO SENSE (Magnus says it was a lie? But Alec was a virgin? But if there's no such thing why doesn't Magnus use energy from Clary to heal Luke when it's down to the wire?) I am compelled to investigate further. For SCIENCE

    Written for were_duck, for the prompt: "tell me more about virgin shadowhunter magic, Magnus?"

    Bookmark Notes:

    Alec's Shadowhunter magic is strong, Magnus knows that from the first casting they ever do together, for that memory demon, [.] hasn’t felt an energy this compatible with his own in decades
    .
    Alec wakes up, acts like he's desperately afraid of handsome stylish men, tells Magnus he trusts him, and then runs away.
    .
    "You don't sound surprised [that I'm a virgin]. Even Izzy was surprised."
    "You sister isn't a warlock," Magnus says, then winces at his implication
    "Magnus, are you telling me. That all warlocks. Can tell that I'm a – a – "
    "A virgin? No [.] Only the ones who are looking for it."
    Alec's look of incredulity speaks for itself, which is useful given Alec's silence.
    "Look, Have very many warlocks asked you out? Propositioned you?"
    "Only the one, and no propositions just yet."
    Magnus grins. "Then they probably didn't know. If they did, they'd have wanted to . . .” Magnus waves a hand delicately to fill in for a multitude of possibilities, “. . . be there when you lost your virginity."
    "Because," Alec says dangerously.
    "Because, Shadowhunters have a certain, hmmn, energy that gets released in those moments. It can be useful for some very particular types of spellwork. So many warlocks make assumptions, though. They saw how handsome you were, how commanding. They didn't check."
    "But you did?"
    "Alexander, perhaps you didn't notice, but I had an embarrassingly huge crush on you from the moment I first saw you,"
    .
    "does that mean – if we – when we – you'll want to harvest my energy?"
    "Harvest isn’t the word I’d use. It's really a very beautiful process, But no, you don't have to. If you did, according to the Accords, the energy would belong to you, and you'd have control over its use."
    "I do not remember reading about that in the Accords."
    "Warlock Accords. Intra-clan stuff. Part of our internal code of ethics, not the laws we've negotiated with the Clave."
    .
    "What is virginity, really? When do you stop being a virgin? When you kissed me for the first time, were you the same kind of virgin afterwards as you were before? Did you feel the same?"
    "I felt . . . different, A little different. But that's not–"
    "Not sex, no. But there are a lot of intimate things we can do with one another that aren't sex. And a lot of sexual things that some would say aren't sex either."
    .
    "Will you – will you tell me?" Alec asks, his voice raw.
    "I will," Magnus says. "If you promise to tell me if you want me to stop."
    "I promise," Alec replies, quickly, and Magnus can’t help but think: ah, too bad, that might’ve been his first consent discussion. missed that one.
    “Then imagine, that I were to unbutton your shirt. Even that, on its own, could be a first, if you felt that way about it. Then imagine that I touched your chest, your nipples. Put my mouth to your skin and sucked. Licked over your nipple – let’s say, the right one, until it tightened under my tongue. Would you feel as virginal afterwards as you did before?”
    Alec swallows, “No,” he says. “I’d feel really fucking different.”
    .
    “Virginity is a state of mind, an idea, When you feel that excitement of doing something for the first time, when it matters to you – that’s when the magic happens.”
    “Literally,”
    “Literally. Shadowhunters have magic; it’s how your runes work. Your beliefs, your desires, your feelings – they all channel trace amounts of magic.”
    .
    “It’s funny. I don’t feel like I’m less. I feel . . . bigger. Warmer. Like I have more energy to give than I did before. How could I feel like I have more of myself when a bunch of me is stored in a jar?”
    “Mmm. Magic isn’t matter. It can be created, and destroyed. And sex is a fairly famous way of creating it. You’ve lost one kind and gained another.”
    “No wonder warlocks are so . . . so . . .”
    “Hot?”
    “Open-minded, But yeah, hot too.”
    “We see the workings of the world,” The container becomes transparent: inside, multicolored swirling energies blend and clash. “How could you say that all these different experiences are more or less valuable, more or less important? How could you label one of them and call it virginity? When you see the energies within people, different acts can have flavor, but it’s hard for them to have hierarchy.”
    .
    “I think we could really explore that little spanking thing of yours further. And of course there’s rimming. Alexander, I’m going to go out on a limb and say right now: you are going to love rimming.”
    “Plus there’s that whole trunk full of toys that you keep in the closet,” Alec puts in, looking as innocent as he can while spread out naked on Magnus’s bed with semen dripping down his thighs
