Based loosely off what happens in Alxsteele’s Through the
Looking Glass series when Magnus gets a cold (Part 11). (But like with baby
Max, you get the idea).
Magnus had told Alec that this always happens every ten
years or so, his little click of warlock friends get together for one week,
just them, no spouses or significant others, and catch up on what’s been
happening. And Alec was happy to get to spend some quality time with Max (who
was now one and a half by Magnus’ reckoning).
Alec had asked for the week off Shadowhunting because he
would be the only one to look after Max. Maryse had tried to object and again
some grandmother-grandson time, but in the end gave in to Alec’s persistence,
on the condition that Alec bring Max to visit a couple times, so he could at
It was while Max was with Maryse, and Alec was training with
Jace, Clary, and Izzy that Max sneezed. Alec had warned Maryse that Max seemed
to have gotten a bit grumpy with Magnus absent, but hadn’t thought anything was

his little head with surprise at himself.
The outside world was colder then she had imagined. Fluttershy shook herself and sneazed. The dublicate had just gotten out of the cave from the mirrorpool. It had started to rain. The yellow pegasus spread her wings and flew out of the forest. She needed a place to sleep and a shelter from the rain. Looking around, she spotted a large house. It looked pretty and very noble. The pegasus landed on the balconery and sneaked into the next room. It was a dining room with a warming fire.
Monte Cristo had just finished dispatching some dummies with his sword. He trained to stay sharp, to keep his body as healthy as his mind. As such, his ears perfectly picked up on the sound of someone landing on his balcony, even if it was on the other side of the house. Monte Cristo strode up calmly to the intruder, as if he didn’t have a care in the world. His composure cracked as he saw a mare that looked disturbingly like Shycedes.
