    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. Lots and lots of smut. Follows a timeline that includes a ton of holidays.

    Updates every Saturday.

    Summary

    Gerade als Magnus das Messer in dem Hals des anderen versenken wollte, bewegten sich die Lider des Herzogs. Der Assassine erstarrte und blickte Sekunden später in die nun geöffneten Augen von Alexander Lightwood. Fast erwartete Magnus, dass er dort Angst und Furcht sehen würde, doch dem war nicht so. Stattdessen konnte er ein herausforderndes Glimmen in den Augen des anderen Mannes sehen.

    Eine AU über Magnus Bane und Alec Lightwood, in der Magnus ein Doppelleben als Assassine führt und Alec ein Herzog ist.

    Summary

    When Clary's world turns upside down and her mother goes missing, she is forced to navigate a strange new life where nothing - and no one - is what she thought. Luckily, she has help: a friend with a secret double life, a golden-eyed man she vaguely remembers, and Luke, the only constant in her life. Together, the four of them must team up with friends and foes alike to save the Shadow World.

    (Or: AU where Dot and Luke find Clary after the events of 1x01 and the majority of season 1 focuses on them and Magnus.)

    Summary

    Answering an ad in the paper, desperately in need of money to pay the rent and also several other debts, Alexander Lightwood never would of thought he'd be sitting in front of the most beautiful man he'd ever seen in his life and being advised just what the job entails which is far from the private tutoring he thought he was applying for.

    Summary

     
    "You have a choice to make. I will not ask again."

    Magnus Bane's ultimatum shook Alec to his core. Quietly, Alec and Lydia called off their engagement. Reluctant to face the resulting questions and speculations, Lydia returned to Idris, leaving the Institute in Alec's capable hands.

    Free from his impending marriage, Alec faces terrifying dilemmas. Is he ready to confront Magnus Bane? What should he say? Does the spellbinding warlock even reciprocate his feelings, or is it all just a cruel game? Is Alec even ready to take that step—to risk derailing everything he's worked for—for a far-fetched chance at love?

    Meanwhile, a rogue warlock prowls the streets of New York, murdering mundanes to gather power for a mysterious spell. Only Magnus Bane has the knowledge to help the New York shadowhunters, now lead by Alec, solve the case.

    Forced to work alongside Magnus on an almost daily basis, Alec must face his feelings head on.

    Summary

    People are suddenly vanishing in outwardly fashion, werewolves and vampires alike are getting possessed or slaughtered, and Shadowhunters are clueless and confused. There seems to be something dark looming over both worlds and as their numbers begin to dwindle, the foreboding sense of extinction consumes them all. The leaders of the Downworlders band together with the Head of the Institute, Alec Lightwood, in hopes of forging a plan to figure out what is going on. Unable to come to a conclusion, they instead come up with a plan that’s so dangerous, they may not even walk out alive. They decide to visit the most dangerous, and mysterious, Warlock of the Shadoworld, who just so happens to not only be the High Warlock of Brooklyn but a Prince of Hell. However, it won’t be easy. The Warlock has made it known that they’re not too fond of Nephilim’s and their identity is a mystery. Confronting a Warlock that has a short fuse and distaste for Shadowhunters is a real ballsy move. But it was either banding with a dangerous force or watching all worlds burn to ashes.

    Will the distrustful and coy Warlock come to peaceful terms with the Shadowhunters and aid them in their troubles? Just who, or what, is causing all of this chaos?

    "Never mind. Why aren't you eating?"

    "Not hungry." Alec shrugged.

    Magnus cut a piece of his pancake with his fork and held it out.

    "What are you doing?" Alec asked slowly, blushing again.

    "Making sure you didn't actually put cocaine in these. Take a bite."

    Summary

    Isabelle never expected that when her brother shared his truth, allowing him to live more fully, it would change not just his life, but the lives of their oldest brother and hers for the better as well.

    A story about support, love, acceptance, growth, and most importantly, family - both blood and found.

    ***PSA - Don't read this fic expecting Malec to be front and foremost. This fic is about Isabelle with Magnus and Alec as a SLOWBURN background ship that only are officially together in the last two chapters but you should absolutely check it out if you like queer stories!!***

    Summary

    Cat turned to Ragnor. "Why is he like this tonight?"

    "I'm sure I would've shut him up if I knew why," said Ragnor sarcastically.

    "You two seriously need more fun in your li—" Magnus started but was interrupted by Maia announcing something on the mike.

    "Ladies and gents you know what happens on Friday nights! So without further ado, Alec Lightwood everyone!" she half-screamed in a fast and upbeat tone. The entire bar cheered and clapped as the lights focusing on the small, raised platform turned off for a few minutes.

    "This should be interesting," Magnus said with an intrigued look which contradicted Ragnor and Cat's annoyed ones.

    Or.

    In which fate decides to invite adventurer Magnus Bane to one of aspiring artist Alec Lightwood's gigs and trap them in the clutches of love.

    Summary

    Home. It was an odd word really for someone who'd never really felt like he belonged anywhere. It was only stepping through the door and being greeted by the lines of yellow cabs waiting for fares that it struck Magnus that yes, New York, was exactly that, his home. Even though it was well into the night the bustle around him felt comforting and relaxing, the sounds and smells that were essentially New York, that were familiar and strangely safe. Here was a city where you could lose yourself, where the crowds would engulf you no matter how flamboyant you were and that kind of anonymity was exactly what Magnus craved right now.

     

     

     

     

    It's been five years since Magnus Bane, infamous conman, left New York but when an old friend calls for help he can't resist coming home again.

    News of the return of Magnus, the so called high warlock of grifting, isn't something that can really be kept quiet and for Jace, Isabelle and Alec Lightwood this may be the break they need.

    Can Magnus reunite the old team and succeed with his task or has he bitten off more than he can chew this time..

    Summary

    Jocelyn Fairchild died when Clary was just two years old. There was no one else that knew of her existence than Luke Garroway, a werewolf, and Magnus Bane, high warlock of Brooklyn. When she died Luke had wanted to take Clary in, but was unable to because of his pack. They despised shadowhunters, and did not want the risk of anyone finding out that Valentine had a daughter. Later in life Magnus would wish he had just left her to be taken in by some other family, maybe that Simon's fellows. Though in the moment he chose to take her in, believing that it was the right thing to do. He wouldn’t change his decision for the world, no matter what trouble it might get him into.
    I have not read any of the books past the first. This is based solely on the show Shadowhunters.
