4 times Alec almost said I
love you, and the one time that he actually did by sufferingbisexual
Alec realized he was in love with Magnus. However when will he be able to actually tell him.
Across the Hall by clato27
“'She looks just like your wife,’ Magnus said, offhandedly. His gaze tore back to Alec when he heard the other man choke on the coffee he was drinking. ‘Oh, I’m sorry, are you two not married.’ 'Uh, no,’ Alec said after recovering from his coughing fit. 'Izzy is my sister.'”
Aka, the “I fell in love with the pregnant girl across the hall’s brother” AU.
Magnus Bane’s the head of his own company. Alec Lightwood is in his last year of law school. They’ve never met but have one thing in common: neither does relationships. Just one night stands. That is until they find themselves matched on a hookup app and suddenly one night is not enough.
Also known as the one where Magnus and Alec meet and think they can have no strings attached sex and not develop feelings.
Alecs Husband by NotEvenThat
Max misses Alec and finally demands that he go with Alec and his friend.. Even if Mom says no.
In a world where the Clave encourages soulbonding you would think Magnus and Alec have it easy.
Sometimes someone comes along and throws you of your life path. And sometimes that’s not such a bad thing.
Bibliophile by @dorkberto
Despite what his sister thinks about his non-existent love life, Alec is not in danger of an oncoming descent into recluse crazy cat owner. For one; Church would eat his competitors for Alec’s undivided attention and two; Alec’s a little hung up over Magnus Bane.
Blue storm by @dorkberto
Ragnor was gone.
Ragnor was gone
Bright Lights, Small Town by @lecrit
When Magnus gets to Nashville, Indiana to handle his late mother’s will, he doesn’t expect to be forced to stay there for six months. Six months away from New York and lost in the wildness of the countryside.
It quickly appears that he is going to go through six months of living hell.
The fact that he hates the local veterinarian on sight isn’t helping.
Over his parabatai’s missing, Alec lashes out at everyone, including Magnus Bane, his warlock lover.
No one has asked him how he felt, but Alec did.
Complete Me by Maleciseverything
“What one loves in childhood stays in the heart forever.” -Mary Jo Putney
Alec tries to deal with people behaving differently since the wedding. He hadn’t counted on Dylan from Accounting.
Fusion by prfctdaze
Magnus gets the surprise of his life when he walks in to Jade Wolf.
The thing about having lived for centuries is that birthdays are no longer such a big deal. A pity no one told that to Magnus Bane’s party extraordinaire boyfriend: Alec Lightwood.
Hold me tightly by Tchell1
“I thought you had died, Alexander” Magnus finally said as a way of explaining himself “I saw you die”
Hypnotise by highlytrainedfangirl
Alec had a problem. One that was wrapped up in exquisite clothing and dusted in glitter. Alec was quickly realising that being around Magnus was terrible for his composure. Ignoring the fact that he could barely string a sentence together without tripping over his words, he’d discovered a new distraction: magic.
After closing a particularly spectacular legal case Magnus sends Ragnor a celebratory text only to find himself the victim of autocorrect and having to explain to a very handsome angel (Alec) that he isn’t God, no matter how much he wishes he was right now.
In The Cards by Obssesivecompulsivereadr
Magnus wore cardigans and baggy slacks. He owned two cats, and he lived in a home more suitable for an elderly mundane woman for a reason. He was to remain boring and unsuitable for most associations with people. He did not like attention, no matter how positive it might be. He was to seem eccentric and weird. Living a life focused on magic that was supposed to not exist.
Alec has more layers than we may have previously thought
Magnus Bane is a famous stripper, used to pretty boys falling in love with him after one dance. The feeling is hardly ever mutual. But when he meets the freshly turned twenty-one year old Alec lightwood, he can’t take his eyes off him, and they find themselves in love quicker than they expected.
Alec Lightwood is in love with his best friend and colleague Jace.
Jace is straight and at the moment he’s dating this Clary girl. Alec is certain it won’t last, as all his friend’s previous relationships.
Then there’s Magnus Bane, another co-worker and a man who sure knows how to make Alec feel embarrassed.
Something’s going on between Alec and Magnus.
Something’s going on between Jace and Clary too…
Magic and Rum by NotEvenThat
Shortly after the party, Magnus finds Max in the kitchen.
“There is a delicate system in place and you are destroying it, Alexander Lightwood. Unhand my pants.”
“Now there’s a sentence I never thought I’d hear you say. You’re usually encouraging me to put my hands on your pants.”
While Magnus was completely aware of the effect Alec had on him, he didn’t know that a tiny little detail in Alec’s morning look could make his heart skipped a beat.
My Heart Smiles by pseudofoucault333
Magnus is an interior designer who is dreading going to his yearly Christmas party and Alec a waiter who has dealt with more than enough Christmas cheer to last a lifetime. But when the two set eyes on the other across a crowded restaurant are they going to be destined for more when the festive season is over?
Magnus Bane had a plan, a perfect Christmas Eve just like always. Hang out with his friends, bask in the Christmas Spirit. Then everything went wrong.
Now he’s stuck reliving the same day again and again and again. The bright side? Maybe Alec Lightwood isn’t as terrible as Magnus always thought.
Alec has enough on his plate right now. His parents are furious at him, Magnus Bane is making him feel things he’s trying so hard not to feel, his wedding is coming up, and his world is breaking apart.What he doesn’t need is a fussy mundane version on himself showing up in the Institute basement. What he doesn’t need is Magnus telling him that they’ll just have to wait for Seelie Magic to suck that version of himself back to his own dimension.But since when does Alec get what he needs?
Alternate Dimension Alec gets trapped in the Shadowhunter reality at some point after the “I know you feel what I feel” scene. The gang desperately tries to stop chaos from ensuing.
Clary doesn’t sneak away when Alec’s on the phone, so Alec accepts Magnus’ invitation to “go out for a drink”.
“How did you manage to never run into him? He’s always helping with stuff and he’s even been at the institute about three weeks ago to strengthen the wards against further attacks from Valentine,” she replied and looked at her brother incredulously. Alexander scrunched up his nose and shrugged.
“Well, maybe I have better things to do than waiting around to watch some overrated warlock do magic tricks,” he commented a little defensively but it was the truth. He always had something to do and even when they were not out demon hunting, he had either paperwork to do or train.
“Pardon me, but I’m not just some overrated warlock. I’m the High Warlock of Brooklyn and that title is well deserved, if I may say so. And I’m appalled that you refer to my magic as petty tricks. You Nephilim always act to high and mighty, yet you’re constantly in need of some tricks from overrated warlocks to help you out of some unnecessary dilemma,” a foreign voice interjected and Alec whirled around, fingers instinctively curling around his bow to be ready to attack if need be. The owner of the voice was not what Alexander had expected, to be honest.
Oh lover, hold on by @fireblazie
The mask and goggles clatter to the ground. Isabelle makes a choked noise, and Jace whispers, paper-thin, “Alec?”
Magnus stops breathing as Alec’s gaze—cold, dead, and empty—comes to rest impassively on them.
“Who the hell is Alec?”
(Loosely based on Captain America: The Winter Soldier.)
One Show Only by KouriArashi
It’s hard to stay in the closet when the guy you had a one-night stand with two nights ago turns out to be your new partner … but Alec will be damned if he isn’t going to give it a try.
People say crazy things by @ohlafraise
“But what I don’t get is why Magnus cares so much about a random shadowhunter,” Jocelyn said.
Simon winced. “Oh, boy.”
Pick up lines by Gracefanfics
Admittly maybe using pick up lines in the middle of your brother’s rune party was a bad idea.
A short fic about Alec not having great timing in using pick up lines on Magnus.
Magnus and Alec go on their date and a simple game of pool gets them a little wound up.
Somewhere safe to finally break by onefootintheboilinghotlava
With the war finally over, Magnus had time to be alone and his mind decided to bring up all the things and people he had lost in the war at once. At his own loft, with his two beloved cats sleeping soundly, Magnus broke down……
Tampons and Concealer? By onefootintheboilinghotlava
So Izzy sent Alec to get tampons and concealer…Alec was standing in the drugstore, not even sure where to begin, when a handsome stranger offered to help.
“Keep your hands to yourself,” Alec tells Magnus apropos of nothing.
Magnus frowns. “I’m on the other side of the table!” he protests… not that he wasn’t thinking about some light groping per say, but they’re in public, Alec might not be into it and, while he’s good at concealing it, Magnus does have manners. Sometimes.
My take on Magnus and Alec’s date.
The Choices of the Chosen by KouriArashi
The day after his 21st birthday, Alec is sent to the demonic court as a gladiator, where he makes both friends and enemies … along with meeting Magnus Bane, who doesn’t seem to fit in either category.
The Only Magic I Believe In (Is The Magic I Receive From Loving You) by @delilahbelle
Or, four gifts Alec gives Magnus.
“No one’s ever done anything like that for me before.”
Alec’s face softens. “Well, I’m going to do it for as long as I’m alive. So get used to it.”
“So here we are.” Magnus said, taking a step closer to Alec.
Alec gulped and took a deep breath in through his nose. “Yeah, here we are.” He squeezed his fingers nervously in his fists as he caught Magnus glancing towards his lips. “I-I suppose you want me to kiss you?” He stuttered, voice faltering.
This Christmas (You’re Someone Special) by vulturemonem
Last Christmas, Magnus Bane had his heart broken.
Again, and again, and again.
And he didn’t think it would be mended anytime soon. He certainly didn’t think he’d be ready to let anybody in. Until a beautiful boy walks into his shop, and steals his breath with shy glances, kind words, and a fantastic coffee machine.
Maybe this Christmas will be better.
Or: In which Camille is awful, Ragnor and Raphael are an old married couple, and Magnus can’t help but be enamoured by Alec Lightwood.
Alec Lightwood is a happily settled down man in a loving, caring relationship. But things weren’t always that way… and once upon a time, Alec used his Valentine’s Day to celebrate the spirit of the night as much as possible.

Too Much is Never Enough by Obsessivecompulsivereadr
They are on opposite edges of the same ideal. Alec so young, and Magnus so much older. Alec a blessed acolyte of the Angel, Raziel. Magnus the abandoned son of the Greater Demon, Asmodeus. Magnus with so much more unimportant and irrelevant experience, and Alec with none. They could not be more different if they tried, and yet, they are also the same. A matched set of uncertainty and inability to accept that someone might want them for exactly who they are.
Top Three by @nebulein
So.” Alec flops back onto the bed, sprawled in a lazy heap on his back, sated and boneless. Magnus is already lying on his belly, basking in the afterglow, and he surreptitiously steals closer, burrowing against Alec’s side. “Best sex of my life.”
Magnus hums, resting his head on his arms, revelling in the thrill those words send through him.
“Or, well,” Alec hazardously waves an arm around, “easily in the top three.”
Magnus giggles. He has no idea where that came from. It’s uncharacteristic for him. Magnus Bane, High Warlock of Brooklyn is usually much too dignified to giggle. But then Alec turns his head and grins at Magnus, lopsided and loopy but brilliant, oh so brilliant, warming Magnus from the inside out and maybe this is exactly the kind of situation which calls for a giggle, so Magnus will allow it. Just this once.
“How about you?”
Twenty-One-Year-Old Alec Lightwood by Obsessivecompulsivereadr
Alec tries not to want Magnus, but it goes about as well as all those other things Alec’s tried not to want throughout the years. Which is… badly
It’s far too easy, letting himself be swept away.
(S02E07 missing scene)
We must choose to reach out and touch by Ambros
Magnus holds out his hand, a silver chain running around his middle finger and wrist, and Alec doesn’t have the time to process it – to think, doesn’t have the time to realise what’s going to happen because he has to take it and he does, electricity dancing through their fingers and down his back and he tries not to think about it, holds out his own hand for Jace and feels unbalanced; he knows Jace’s touch, remembers it from roughing each other up when they were kids even though he tried to forget it, to turn it into a ghost when he understood, but Magnus’ is new and smooth and unassuming and he feels uncomfortable, doesn’t know what to do with it.
“You have to—“
“Help you?” Magnus filled in dryly.
Or: The Six Times Magnus helped someone, and the one time they try to help him
Will you be my best friend? Will you be my last? by @lightwoodlesbians
or the 'you pretended to be my partner bc my ex wouldn’t stop talking to me’ au
You Are Certainly My Poison of Choice by iktwabrokenbone
So there he was. Midnight, at a party. Preparing himself to do something with a guy. To spend one night getting all of this- this unspeakable desire out of his system. He needed to forget it before he made a mistake and ruined his career, his chances of becoming Head of the New York Institute.
(Alec’s panic attacks were getting worse and worse and maybe if he spent one night with a guy he could get it out of his system, and he could forget being gay and loving Jace. But nothing went that smoothly, so of course Alec’s one night stand had to be Magnus Bane, and they had to keep bumping into each other. It wasn’t like Alec wanted to understand his emotions, anyway.)
