***Nearly 3 weeks into the hiatus and I am missing Magnus and Alec desperately. Matthew Daddario voice: *When is it gonna end?” Siiigh. But well, what better way to spent the hiatus then reading some great Malec fanfics, right? Right. Because I have read a lot of amazing fics incl. discovering some great new authors. And now that autumn is coming…. the perfect time to read more.
Also, I am overwhelmed how many notes the last rec post got and how much you all enjoy(ed) it. So I hope this 5th edition will get a lot of love, too. Again, let me know if you liked this and if I should continue doing this. But now, have fun reading, pumpkins.***
Working for Magnus isn’t easy. Magnus is out of control and Alec has to yell more often than not to get him to listen to him. He hates everything formal because it means he has to watch his mouth. Most importantly, Magnus is an incorrigible flirt.
Which would be alright if Alec wasn’t utterly, irremediably, unfathomably in love with him.
Alec is fairly certain he is the luckiest man in America. On earth. Possibly in the entire universe.
He slowly started to convince himself of the now indisputable fact when Magnus and him started dating a year ago after the ceremony that crowned Magnus as King of the World (or Best Actor, but Alec isn’t always objective when it comes to his boyfriend). A lot happened in a year, and Alec knows eventually the wheel is bound to spin and his luck might dim and vanish but as of now, he still feels like the luckiest man on earth, and he is going to make the most of it for as long as it lasts.
Prince of Hell Magnus Bane, was tired of his life in Hell. Every day was the same; condemned souls being punished for their wrong doings, demons feasting on the worst humanity had to offer, two or three deals with a few greedy humans. It was dull, uneventful. Boring.
So Magnus packed his bags and moved to New York City. As the owner of the lavishing club Pandemonium at the heart of Manhattan, Magnus enjoyed a life without worries for five years, until the fateful night where a former client was murdered on the streets.
It was then that he met no-nonsense Homicide Detective Alec Lightwood, owner of incorruptible morals and the tightest ass Magnus has ever seen. Earth was fun, after all.
Confused, Magnus followed Rafael’s line of site to the opposite side of the train where a young man sat, pulling silly faces. However, the moment he realised Magnus was staring his face flushed and he stopped, averting his eyes as if he hadn’t just answered all of Magnus’ prayers. In more ways than one as well because not only had he calmed Raf down but he was gorgeous.
“And you, Mr Bane. Thank you for taking the time.”
The kinky, shameless smut that occurs right after the rest of the clan leaders leave. Magnus and Alec make excellent and creative use of Alec’s new office and its expansive mahogany desk… and its sturdy door.
A ‘no kissing, looking at suggestively or touching’ rule was applied when it came to Magnus and Alec at the downworlder meeting. Magnus respected that, respected his man, and tried his best as soon as he walked through the doors of the institute. But now, back in his loft, with the night fallen and Alec returning through the front door from a demon attack, looking battered and exhausted, Magnus couldn’t help but keep the game going.
They stay on the balcony for a while, listening to the sounds of New York at night. Alec noticed the glasses and the discarded pillows when he walked in, but he doesn’t want to break the comfortable silence they’ve fallen into. He looks over at Magnus, and by the angel, he looks beautiful, breathtaking. but the longer Alec watches him, the more he can see the makeup and hair and the clothes for what they really are.
Alec captures the defined line of Magnus’ jaw between eager yet clumsy fingers, tilting his face upwards as they gasp into each other’s mouths, exchanging fevered gusts of breath. Magnus seizes the swollen flesh of Alec’s bottom lip with gentle teeth, nipping gingerly, suckling with avid hunger and Alec’s groan resonates loud and clear throughout the room. By the angel, he wants this man desperately; his need has become a physical ache, pulsating through his nerve endings and coiling strictly around his burning muscles.
Unpacking sucked. And Magnus had only brought like half of his things. Okay, maybe two-thirds. But whatever, it didn’t matter. What did matter was that Magnus was sweating from carrying boxes, the cottage had no air conditioning, and he was super close to packing everything back up and driving back to New York in about three seconds.
Or the one where heartbreak is a pain in the ass, Magnus is forced to spend the summer in a small cottage in the hopes of finding his passion for design again, and manages to piss off the cute neighbor after only being there for two days.
“The only real pain in life is between hanging on and letting go.”
Magnus is still asleep; Alec can feel the steady rise and fall of his chest against his own back, and Alec takes the few minutes just to enjoy being wrapped up in Magnus’s arms. He looks down at their hands threaded together, resting against his stomach. He loves the contrast between them; tan and pale, long and lean, deep red nail polish and short, bitten nails. There’s something comforting there too. How different they can be, but how well they fit together. Alec has a moment of feeling like they were made to fit together. It might be stupid, it brings a blush to his cheeks, but a warm feeling settles in his stomach at the thought. He likes that.
“Do you -” Alec started, hissing his teeth in pain and looking up at Magnus. “Do you have any more of that free of charge warlock TLC?”
“What are you -?” Magnus asked, before the memory hit him full force and he tried not to laugh, because Alec was hurt, god damn it. But Alec was smiling up at him and his eyes were shining bright full of hope and love, so Magnus leaned down and kissed him.
Alec feels all his love for the man in his arms bubble up to the surface looking at him like this. Sleep rumpled and peaceful, his hair is a soft mess that Alec almost can’t wait to run his fingers through when Magnus wakes up, his lips so kissable and slightly open. There is nothing better in this world than being able to wake up to this he thinks idly.
Alec’s breath catches nearly every time he looks at Magnus, and it happens even during times they haven’t been on an official date. But tonight is different. Magnus isn’t his sedate and dignified self right now. He’s back to being flirty and relaxed, and he looks so good that Alec can’t stop thinking about touching him.

Alec has come out, but that doesn’t stop his parents from their continuous attempts to set him up with a nice shadowhunter girl. So, what better way to finally get them off his back, than to say he has a boyfriend? Problem solved. Except they now apparently want to meet this guy, who doesn’t exist. Thankfully, Magnus Bane – who encouraged Alec to come out in the first place, and whose silent crush on Alec is just as bad as Alec’s crush on him – is more than happy to help. Even if the night doesn’t end up going entirely as planned.
They stared at each other for a moment, each beat of Magnus’s heart seeming to thicken the air again, pulling them back to the charged space they had fallen into on all of their dates. They’d fallen into this feeling here in the loft, out in the world, so many places where everything suddenly just felt intense and present. They were in this charged space where their bodies were saying one thing, and one thing only.
Just a quick fic to fill in a Christmas need I have for my Blue Steel Series. Takes place between “Blue Extravagance” and the upcoming “Blue Righteousness.” Magnus and Alec “come” together for the first time since Alec’s injury and the boys wake up for Christmas morning.
After returning from medical leave, Detective Alexander Lightwood-Bane catches his roughest case up to date. When one of his properties, a club called Kebebasan is attacked by two gunmen, Magnus Lightwood-Bane calls the best cop he knows. During the course of the investigation, Alec discovers that this shooting isn’t an isolated incident, but the result of domestic terrorism; a group attacking what they consider to be amoral. Alec and his partner, Jace Herondale have to move quickly to stop this group before it causes wide-spread panic in the city and more loss of life.
“Are you really going to risk your life for a Shadowhunter?”
Those were some of the last words that Magnus Bane had said to Dot before he stepped through his portal to his lair, protecting only the warlocks. Abandoning the rest of the Shadow World to Valentine and his Circle.
Dot wasn’t sure how long she had been under Valentine’s control, but now as she stood on Magnus’ balcony, hours after Magnus and Clary had portalled away to the Institute, to save both Shadowhunters and Downworlders, she knew something had changed.
Alec stood up, keeping a careful distance and being sure to move slowly as he approached. “Magnus, I am so sorry. For everything you had to go through.”
Magnus’ eyes never moved from the spot on the floor he was staring at. He shook his head slightly, eyebrows furrowed deeply. “That agony rune…” He paused, taking a moment to swallow. His face was drawn in so much pain that Alec had to look away for a moment. He immediately punished himself by digging his fingernails into his palm. It was selfish to worry about his pain. He had certainly inflicted more than enough on Magnus that he had to atone for. “Made me remember things that I spent…centuries trying to forget.”
After one black out too many, Ragnor and Catarina had enough of Magnus trying to drink himself to an early grave. It was time for an intervention and they had the perfect place in mind: The Institute, the best rehabilitation installation in the New York state.
Only Magnus wasn’t exactly asked for his opinion on the matter. And if there is something Magnus doesn’t like, is to be forced into something.
Maybe the Head of the Institute, Alec Lightwood, is enough of an argument to chance his mind?
(A/N) The moment of truth has finally arrived y’all, Call Boy Jaehyun has joined the party! Hope you enjoy him for the night! ;)
You didn’t trust men anymore, not after having your heart broken over and over by them without batting a lash. Each breakup warped and shaped you into the woman you were now, someone who was broken but strong enough to handle her own…and her men.
You should’ve taken a break from dating, but your mind kept convincing you that the next one would work and that you would be stronger. Each man that you dated slowly changed you, the only consolidation your heart ever felt was when you were breaking a man’s will underneath your six-inch heel. Your friends jokingly called you a man eater, and you didn’t make any attempt to correct them because you knew that’s exactly what you were.
Amanita’s FOUR radically interracial poly-amorous parents do seem like the kind whom want their daughter to have a life like theirs, but even better, and ...
… Amanita’s like ‘I’m marrying essentially EIGHT people from all over the world whom are a rare evolution of the humanoid species called sensates, plus their THREE of my fellow sapien lovers by extension,’ (yes, sorry, I’ve already decreed that Herlito has to make it official, Capheus gets to marry Zakia, and Kwon-Ho gets to marry Sun, deal with it, it turns out that I do make the rules), ‘… and kind of a roommate of theirs who may or may not be a sensate … oh, and a locksmith-con-turned-club-owner from Wuppertal who’s definitely not a sensate. I also feel very protective of a gang of female inmates at a South Korean prison, an Hispanic cop in Chicago, and his family, and a mother, bus attendant, and little girl with cancer in Nairobi, … and no one is allowed to squash my Bug nor mess with my white future sister-in-law. … Did I mention that I’m working with those eight people to battle their overlords whom are hunting, torturing, and oppressing their own kind?’
This was extremely hard to narrow down to just ten picks, but these are the anime I personally love and never grow tired of watching. These are in no particular order. 😉
1) Gintama: Out of all the anime listed here, this is the one with the most variety of genres mashed into it. One minute you’ll be on the floor laughing, then the next you’ll be crying buckets. If you’re a newcomer to anime, I couldn’t recommend this anime enough to you. 🐣🐶
2) Boku no Hero Academia: An anime I’ve only recently discovered over the past month or two, I can admit I’ve enjoyed every single minute of it. There isn’t one moment you could call dull, and you’re always itching to find out what’s going to happen next. Plus, you’ll be instantly thrown into the Deku Bowl. Once you’re in, there’s no way out 🍜💪
3) Black Cat: As one of the first animes I ever watched, it holds a special place in my heart. I sadly find this to be an extremely underrated anime. The story is fantastic; you feel as if you’re travelling with Train and the gang on their sweeper missions. While it mostly falls under the thriller and dramatic genres, there are some hilarious moments thrown in throughout. Definitely worth a look at. 🔫🐱
4) Noragami: Unlike the rest of the anime here, I actually read the manga version of Noragami before I checked out the anime adaptation. All I can say is I absolutely adore it! It’s a one of a kind show with an amazingly unique set a of characters, each with completely different personalities. You get to watch the god of war Yato’s mindset slowly be changed by Hiyori, a spunky, independent but good hearted girl. And we can’t forget the precious child of gold Yukine! 🗡️👪
5) Free! Iwatobi Swim Club: I actually stumbled across this anime by accident on YouTube, and boy am I grateful for that! As the viewer, you get to follow the lives of the Iwatobi Swim Club team as they overcome challenges, both within the team and themselves. The artwork is beautiful and the story just gets better and better with each new episode. (Also, MakoHaru ftw) 🐬🐳
6) Haikyuu!!: If you’re a lover of sports anime and you haven’t already seen this, where have you been? From the moment I watched the first episode, I knew this anime was going to be one of my favourites. If I had to sum it up in five words, it would be this- Hinata can jump REALLY high. 🤾🏐
7) Tokyo Ghoul: One of the highest grossing anime of all time, and it’s easy to see why. If you’re a lover of horror, unexpected plot twists, your heart being ripped to shreds and watching a poor boy have his life slowly ruined, this one’s for you! (JK, the anime is one of my all time favourites and never fails to get me hyped.) 👦👻
8) Gurren Lagann: When I first got Netflix, the first anime to pop up in my recommendation box was Gurren Lagann. At the time I was debating watching it because half of it had already been spoiled by my friend, but I decided to go ahead and watch it anyway. I can now say I’m truly glad I did! The action scenes are animated so colourfully and well, unlike anything I’ve ever seen. If you’re looking for a story that will take you on a trip to feels town, Gurren Lagann is the one for you! 😎🤖
9) Fruits Basket: As with Black Cat, Fruits Basket was one of the first animes I ever watched. I didn’t expect much and thought it would be a typical shoujo anime, but boy heck was I wrong. The incorporation of the Zodiac story in this is what made it really stand out from the stereotypical shoujo story, as well as the fact the female lead Tohru isn’t afraid to stand up for herself and reach out to help others. 🐈🍈
10) Tsurezure Children: A new anime which has recently just finished its first season, I fell in love with it straight away. Unlike most anime which have a duration of around 30 minutes, the episodes are about 15 minutes long, making it a perfect show to watch if you’re taking a break from homework. Within each episode the story interchanges between different pairings, giving you a range of simple and sweet love stories that will have you hooked. 💗👫
Other anime I love: Attack on Titan, Fairy Tail, Yuri on Ice, Kuroko no Basket, One Piece, Durarara, Your Lie in April, Ouran High School Host Club, Orange, Blue Exorcist, Soul Eater, Kimi no Todoke, Mob Psycho and Food Wars.
Genre: college! au, fuckboy! au, club! au , dancer! au A/N: Second post!
“Here I thought I already had everything, but now I know what’s it like to wake up in the morning and experienced the best view.”
That fuckboy who works out A LOT and just goes clubbing very often
Works out a lot mainly because that’s how he channels his stress from school & lots of ppl find him way too attractive when he gyms so bonus points for that
He won’t be the type to specifically approach a girl but will literally flirt/make out with any girl who approaches him first
his logic is that they are interested in him and knows what’s going to happen so he’s not responsible if they get their hearts break over him
He’s the one everyone has their eyes on in the club, not just because he is drop dead gorgeous but he is one of the best dancers there
Honestly, the only reason he goes clubbing is so he can win those dance battles and get extra $$$
& ofc get them ladies
You weren’t exactly a party person but you knew how to get loose during the ideal time
Seeing how you ended just finished your mid terms, you knew it was time to get loose and have fun
What better way than to go to the club your cousin owns?
You were dressed to kill and attracted everyone’s attention when you walked in with your friends
You got yourself a drink to get yourself in the mood as you survey the environment
You could see a lot of new faces and wow that cutie at the dance floor was totally your type
But you knew from experience that boys like that were honestly the worst to be with as they did stomp on your feelings so you just dance with your friends, having the time of your life
While Daniel was busy with his dance battle, he did notice you considering you were one of the only few girls who wasn’t just grinding at some strangers but actually pulling off some sick moves
He would be absolutely lying to himself if he wasn’t physically attracted to you
Before he could make his way to you, the owner of the club who is good friends with him drag Daniel to a corner, saying how he wanted to introduce his baby cousin to him who was a dance major like him but in a different college and thought you guys would get along really well
He was like ‘…… okay’ although all he wanted was to walk to you
Little did he know, the owner’s ‘baby’ cousin was indeed you
When he made eye contact with you, his palms were getting clammy
It wasn’t that you were ‘different’, more like you look like you were having the worst time of your life talking to him
To be fair, you were just testing Daniel since well he wasn’t your usual boy-next-door
He was honestly freaking out cause it might sound crazy but he was really really attracted to your personality by the end of the night
You were a lot smiley later on as you two talked about his cats and you brought up how you were actually working part time at a cat cafe and you seemed to be very carefree when you spoke to him
You were just very open to him about your stuff and didn’t seem to actually try to flirt with him as you were more interested to know what was beneath him rather than making out with him
You two exchanged numbers as you left and Sungwoo being the little shit he was, would tease Daniel for having a love struck expression
Two days later, as you tied your apron to start your part time job, you notice how Daniel was waiting at the counter, getting ready to order a drink
You did be surprised cause who did expect a boy like to actually remember where you work & what time was your shift
He did spend the time playing with the cats in the cafe
It did evoke such a fuzzy and warm feeling in your chest
You will probably bring him a complimentary cake on the way and he will thank you while petting a kitten
You were just like wtf did the clubbing Daniel go????
- He will message you photos of the kitten even if you see them every day
But those texts will soon turn into asking how was your day? To you sending videos of your dance practice
Expect him to come by EVERY single time you were working
At this point, you were just wondering how was he not broke from the constant coffee and cakes he did get from the cafe
You decided to let him in for free cause he was attracting a lot of customers anyway
That was when he asked you instead of charging it for free, could you go on a date with him instead?
Of course you said yes and it was a date of the zoo where he did make fun of how his friends resembles a certain animal and you did laugh at all his jokes
That was when you realize you were super comfortable with him as more dates came by and although there wasn’t an official title, Daniel just didn’t see any point of looking at other girls when all he could think was making you his
When you guys are officially together, every girl basically stood 10m apart from Daniel
nobody wanted to mess with you the cause no one wanted to be on the blacklist of the hottest club courtesy of your lovely cousin who was basically shipping you and Daniel
Expect a lot of workout dates and dance battle between you two and lots of cuddles with Rooney and Peter somehow squished in between
Requests are always open & Feel free to inbox me anything at all ♡
This Playboy Mansion, formally known as “Tiki Palace”, lies atop Missionary Ridge in Chatanooga, Tennesee. The house was built by strip club owner, Billy Hull, in 1972.
The 5,600 square foot 3 bedroom 4.5 bath home was featured in a builder’s magazine for its unique Playboy bunny shaped pool. The pool had swim tunnels leading to separate bedrooms. Live palm trees were planted around the pool area. The walls were covered in tiki style bamboo, palm matting and animal heads from around the world. Each bedroom also had closed-circuit tv monitors with feeds from the pool room as well as an intercom system. The hallways and bathrooms were covered floor to ceiling in marble. The living room in the back of the house had another full marble bar and mirrored walls leading out to the patio area. The patio area featured a 12 person jacuzzi tub, copper top outdoor bar as well as a large sauna. The house was used for parties, gathering, and mostly a house for swinger couples.
In 1973, a friend of Billy Hull shot and killed Hull’s wife’s boyfriend outside of a nightclub. A victim of his own lifestyle, the evidence was overwhelming and Hull was found guilty of murder for hire. Another unsuccessful murder for hire plot was brought forth by the gunman during the trial, implicating Billy Hull on a second murder charge. The gunman was found guilty of manslaughter. Mr. Hull was found guilty of murder and received 20 years, however, he was released due to a lack of evidence.
In the 1980s, Hull was found guilty of tax evasion and was incarcerated. His Swinger’s Mansion was seized by the city after foreclosure.
These are the sinister photos of an abandoned
swingers mansion, covered in broken glass and daubed in graffiti. The house, in
Chattanooga, Tenn., was the former home of strip club owner Billy Hull, who was
jailed for murder in the ’70s. In 1972, nearly 10,000 people visited the
mansion, which was famous for the bunny-shaped pool that took up nearly half
the house. (Caters)
bahorel’s laugh is so vibrant and colourful it rings in your ears and feuilly’s laugh is just. a straight up honk. last time laughed in public the club owner shouted “who the fuck brought a goose in here?”
Summary: Hoseok is kind, charming and friendly, but there are some lies behind the blinding smile of this strip club owner. Jungkook is a mysterious, passionate musician- and don’t you know that you need to sacrifice in order to achieve your dreams… sometimes even your morals?
*Side Note* I hate that there’s shit going down but happy that Season 2 is getting shine because I LIVE for Season2!
From what I have gathered, Tyra wrote a LONG post on Facebook where she shaded Raven especially, and it seems like Morgan a little. Morgan was pissed that she came for Raven and decided she didn’t want to perform with her. Morgan and Raven are the weekly headliners at Micky’s, so obviously that’s a problem. The owners at the club dropped Tyra. Tyra posts on her Facebook that Morgan is dead, like literally R.I.P. Morgan McMichaels. All of these post are still live by the way. Also she posted some other shady shit about Raven losing twice. Tyra has done some shady shit but this is super low. If she is mad at Morgan because she lost a booking that’s fine. But this is really the type of stuff that needs to stay behind closed doors. THEN Tatianna texts Tyra to take it down. Tyra post a screenshot WITH TATIANNAS PHONE NUMBER ON INSTAGRAM!!!!! So obviously Tatianna did the same. This is a Season 2 blood bath!! I just hope this doesn’t get too out of hand. Also, this is why Tyra doesn’t have as many fans and isn’t as visible. Every time her name comes up its in some mess. And she is young but not THAT young. It’s really not an excuse anymore. I don’t expect all the queens to like each other but this shit is low. She is literally not only the least deserving winner but the most ungrateful as well.
Please tell us more about your yakuza Yuuri/host club owner Victor AU!
YUS I WILL I HAVE LOTS OF PLANS That I shouldn’t be making because I should focus on one thing at a time XD
