I read way too much Malec fics and love them all. Then I thought, I should make a post that no one actually asked me for. All of these fics are work in progress.

Chapter: 4/? Word Count: 19k Rate: Teen and Up Audience
Excerpt from the Prologue:
Magnus: “As a time traveler, Alec visited him in different eras of his life and yet time itself never distorted. Time obeyed in his presence. When he would eventually vanish back to his present, Magnus would discover new interests, spells, and pleasures in his absence until the next time they meet and time fixes itself again.
The ultimate curse of immortality: being left behind.”
Alec: “It’s agony being anywhere Magnus was not. Being immortal means having been abandoned by loved ones more times than he deserved and yet he would still choose Alec.
Time travel is cruel that way. Always going where Magnus can’t follow.”

Summary: “For $200, Alec has to kiss a boy !” shouted Lily before raising her glass of vodka.
Alec stared at her with a frown. $200? he thought. It was a lot. He wondered with confusion how many books it would make and could already imagine them in his room. He really wanted those $200 now, but he didn’t know who to kiss and even less how.
He didn’t want to kiss a stranger, the only people whom he thought about were Jace and Magnus. His choice was quickly made, Jace was straight and had Clary whereas Magnus had no one.
Alec hoped he wouldn’t mind a little kiss.
For $200, he motivated himself before standing up under the encouraging and alcoholic cries of his friends.
