Hi! I'm new to the malec fandom and I was wondering if there are any fics that you highly recommend? Preferably on the longer side? Unfortunately my laptop is having issues and the link to your library isn't working on mobile :(

Hi! So both of us put together some of our personal faves, and both of us write fics ourselves so I’m gonna link our AO3′s in case you’re interested!

charl’s AO3 / elle’s AO3

charl’s picks: 

Binding Spell by Lemur710 ( PG | 1/1 | 7,880)

“He watched with a sadness he couldn’t define as Alec drained the last drop of his drink. A toast to the dying, he thought, and took another sip of his own. Magnus supposed Alec had stuck to their agreement: One more drink and then decide. He’d decided.”

This author’s take on the missing scene from 1x06 “Of Men and Angels”.

Angel’s Treasure by msalexiscriss ( PG13 | 20/20 | 83,495 )

AU. Alec and Magnus’s paths cross when they have to join forces to rescue Jace, Alec’s brother, from one of the most dangerous pirates of all times. What do a pirate and the son of an aristocrat have in common? Everything. Navigating mysterious waters, uncovering ancient secrets, and chasing maddened pirates, Magnus and Alec will discover that every storm can be weather if you just have the right person by your side. This is a tale of pirates, treasure and love.

Anything Verse by StarWitness42 ( Mature | 2/? | 105,840 )

(Anything) Magnus would do anything for Alec, and Alec doesn’t know what to do with that. / (Everything) With Valentine still at large, a crisis threatens to split the Shadow World in two, testing the loyalties of everyone on both sides of the line. But choosing between duty and honor, family and love is never easy, especially when war is on the horizon.

oh lover, hold on by fireblazie ( PG13 | 4/4 | 33,168)

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.)

Force of Nature by Lemur710 ( Mature | 1/1 | 5,844 )

A note from the past causes Magnus to contemplate the loves of his long life, and leads to an unexpected turning point in his relationship with Alec.

Or, Why Magnus Never Married


“Meaning well is not well enough,” Ragnor said to Magnus in some shabby French café several decades ago. “You remember what Simone said. ‘The danger is not that the soul doubts there’s any bread, but lest, by a lie, it persuades itself that it is not hungry.’ My dear friend, there is no bread. Do not pretend any of these well-meaning ‘acts of love’ feed that starving soul of yours.”

“That’s not exactly how she said it. I do believe you’re paraphrasing.”

“And you’re avoiding the issue, which I’ll allow because I’ve eaten too much and need to concentrate on digestion. But I hope you’re listening too.“

elle’s picks: 

Celebrity!Magnus AU by vulturemonem ( PG13 | 3/? | 32,919 )

When Magnus Bane, famous model-turned-fashion designer and beloved celebrity, meets NYC cop Alec Lightwood, sparks fly.

Dating someone from an entirely contrasting world is never easy, however, and negotiating the ups and downs of their relationship is certainly never going to get dull.

(Or: In which Magnus is a celebrity, Alec is his grumpy cop boyfriend, and sometimes, the world really hates them, even though they love each other to pieces.)

What’s It Gonna Be by lemonoclefox ( Mature | 4/4 | 49,338 )

Fairchild’s bakery is a second home to not just Magnus, but also to most of his found-family. As a pastry chef, he works long hours and takes great pride in his craft – so much so that he has little time or attention for much else. Least of all romance. After plenty of experience with heartbreak and disappointment, he has come to expect the worst from anything in that department, and the arrival of the wealthy Lightwoods in the neighborhood isn’t about to change that. Especially not when their eldest son might just be the most insufferable prick Magnus has ever met, no matter what anyone else has to say about the guy.

(aka the Pride & Prejudice/bakery AU no one asked for)

Kiss With A Fist by clockworkswan ( Mature | 26/26 | 240,899 )

When agent Alec Lightwood is given his first kill hit, he doesn’t expect much trouble. Of course, he also doesn’t expect it to be a cheerful assassin who lands him in a whole load of trouble.
Enter Magnus Bane: an assassin turned thief who reluctantly teams up with Alec - and The Clave - after he pisses off a very important and powerful crime boss, Valentine Morgenstern.
In a world of violence and unjust laws, can the two put aside their differences and work together?
Aka: in which Alec is sent to kill Magnus, doesn’t, and then really wishes he had. (but not really).
Enemies to friends to lovers.

Appassionato by Chonideno ( PG | 2/2 | 35,866 )

Alec plays the piano every day, with great talent. One night, a note slips under his door: it’s a request from an anonymous neighbor. Before he knows it, Alec picks up the habit of leaving his window open so his neighbor can listen to him. Requests keep coming. Slowly, two strangers start a conversation without words and let the music do the work for them.

night vision by serendipitiness ( Not Rated | 2/2 | 15,639 )

“N-no. No. No.” There were a thousand directions this could have taken, and this isn’t one. Shouldn’t be one. Alec is tripping over the words, his thoughts a mess because it’s true, his timer had been down to the last minutes when he’d closed his eyes and then now…

His soulmate is a stranger in the dark, someone without a face. A man.

(or how Alec finds his soulmate, inspired by the myth of Cupid and Psyche)

Malec Fic Recs

So…Ive been meaning to do this for a while so here goes..Im trying to concentrate on fics I’ve found that have smaller hit rates because quite frankly there are some amazing stories out there by super talent writers that you really, really should give a shot… but realistically there’ll be some more well known ones as well because I’m weak

Anyway enough blithering on here goes…

Permanent Resident - Bumblebeesknees (rating E)  15015 words Complete

Full disclosure I’m a massive mythology geek so this is right up my street. This mythology AU features Magnus/Hades, Alec/Persephone, Jace/Hermes and Maryse/Demeter amongst many others.

It’s a funny and sweet take on a traditional myth and is a joy to read…I guarantee it’ll make you smile :-)

Devotion - JezTheMadFicster (rating T) 3707words Complete  @jezthemadficster

This little fic is simply adorable and a must read. Lecturer Magnus AU and the language of flowers and it’s lovely…truly. Jez is such a talented writer as I hope a lot of you already have discovered but this little gem is perfect in every way.

(Also if you haven’t read Jez’s WIP I Won’t Let You Fall read it cos it’s awesome)

It’s a Kind of Magic - Thealmostrhetoricalquestion (rating G) WIP chapters 3/?


What can I say about this fic…it’s a delight. Featuring Magical Magnus and Human Alec and a very magical flat. It’s sweet and funny and beautifully observed. If you want a fic to brighten your day and make you laugh this is the one for you…

Hour Of Separation - blj2007 (rating T) 5048 Words Complete 


Want some BAMFAlec and BAMFMagnus…well this one’s for you. I literally couldn’t not include it because not only is Britt a wonderful writer but she’s also an all round lovely human being. Seriously this is so good…do check out her other works, I promise you’ll be glad you did…

Sympathy for the Prince - Ketz  (rating M) 31,867 words Complete


Lucifer meets Malec..sign me up…Let’s face it everything Ketz writes is amazing and this is no exception. It’s funny and sweet with a detective background. 

Oh and do read some of Ketz’s other fics as well - you won’t regret it.

Count to Ten and Breathe - StarWitness42 (rating G463 words Complete


Ok so this little drabble post 2x12 is seriously angsty but it’s just so good…it may break your heart but trust me it’s worth it.

Cheer yourself up by reading StarWitness’ multi chapter fic Holding the stick immediately afterwards…honestly so good..

Lead The Way - clockworkswan (rating T) 28806 words complete


Doctor who/Malec fusion and its lovely…truly. Let’s be honest we all know that anything this writer produces is pure gold and this is no exception…I thoroughly recommend binging the rest of this writer’s works too..

Driving Him Insane - LadyMatt (rating M) 1504 words Complete @ladymatt

A perfect little smuttastic drabble by the lovely M. I had to include this because a) its really good and b) LadyMatt is such a great person and doesn’t realise how good a writer she is as well as being an awesome Beta to boot.

ok so that’s it for now… honestly i could go on for days because there are so many talented writers in this fandom I can’t even…. I’ve tried to include the less well known fics here (I’ve cheated a little with some very popular talented writers so there’s that) and there are so many awesome stories that I adore so I will almost certainly rec more soon…If anyone has any recs feel free to tell me - as an avid reader Im desperate for more…

Oh and don’t forget if you like any of these fics don’t forget to comment…you’ll make a writers day - and happy writers tend to write more so it’s win win :-)

@lightinsidethedark​ asked: Hey; could you rec me some long multi chaptered and completed malec fics? Thank you😊 

Sorry for the delay, but I’ve purposefully neglected delving fully into longer fics because I tend to get caught up in them and I can’t be distracted due to school at the moment. I did quite a bit of research though (which increased the size of my to-read list, so thanks for that!), because I wanted to do your request justice, and this is what I’m currently able to recommend. 

Per your request, all of these fics are over 30,000 words and multi-chaptered. You never specified if you preferred canon universe or alternate universe fics, so I included a bit of both.

For works that have been previously recced and fit this criteria, see: 

There appear to be some really, really incredible fics that are still currently works-in-progress, but I tried to steer clear of them in order to fulfill your criteria. However, these two are fantastic (and the first one is nearly complete). I felt that they are both far too great and original to ignore.

Finally, here is a list of completed fics that fit your criteria: 

The full recs for all of these will be posted within the next few days, but you can use the links provided above, if you so choose, in the meantime. Please be aware that there may be some triggering content. Be sure to read the tags and warnings and take them seriously. Happy reading!
