    Summary

    It’s been three years since Alec Lightwood was stripped of his runes, three years to build a new life for himself as a mundane. Now, he runs a tattoo shop catering to downworlders, where anyone could stumble in.

    -----

    After helping prevent the second uprising of The Circle, Magnus Bane traded in his position as High Warlock to pursue his second calling: fatherhood. With two young warlock children, life is far from mundane.

    -----

    This story is a slow burn of numerous meet-cutes, generous fluff, and feel-good kid-fic moments. Constant fluff, eventual smut.

    Updates every Wednesday and Saturday.

    Summary

    Love comes along when you least expect it, like a gust of wind that knocks you off your feel. You lose balance, things around you fall over and all of a sudden things have changed. You can see it now as your heart falls deeper and deeper for that one person who blew you away in the first place, you can see that maybe there is a possibility that you could live the life you always wanted to. Although, the course of true love never did run smooth.

    Alec Lightwood needed to be loved more than he realised, and not for the things that everyone else saw in him, for something that actually mattered. All Magnus Bane needed was for someone to see past the hearing aids and invest in who he was not his disability.
    Two people that need to be seen for reasons other than their exterior, two people that upon meeting each feel a gust of wind that shifts something within them entirely. Two people that are unknowingly ready, to fall in love.

    And then he sees Camille, and he freezes.

    OR: Alec and Magnus end up with an all-paid-for date. Oh no, am I right?

    Summary

    They decide to start with their family. Family is important to them, undeniably so. To Magnus, Alec’s family is his own, therefore just as important as the man he had married. The Lightwoods had sneaked their way into his heart, and he's been helpless to resist. He'd put Alexander before them, without a doubt; Magnus spent too long wanting someone by his side, to make his dark days bearable, to have someone to come home to, to have his unrivalled affections be received and returned. He wants all of that with Alec, forever; but he puts his foot down when Alec had meekly suggested they keep their little research from his family until they found anything worth looking into.

    Or: Magnus and Alec tell the Lightwoods (and extensions) of Alec's choice to become immortal
