I’m really hoping Magnus dancing is the aftermath of him and Alec having a fight and Magnus calling Cat over to get drunk and just relax and then end up drunk dancing in his living room because my boy needs a break.
Alec arrives to apologize or sort things out then and does that face. You know the one. The 17k face. He’s 50 shades of shook and 100 shades of aroused. Cat notices him first and she doesn’t stop dancing but she looks at Magnus and says, “I think your Shadowhunter is here to apologize. Does he dance?” because if she can have an opportunity to tease a Shadowhunter, she’ll take it.
Magnus just smirks and twirls around to face Alec, who shakes his head, his eyes widening.
“I don’t think he does,” he sighs, waving his hand to switch off the music.
Cat stages an affronted gasp and gives Alec a very disappointed look.
“Shadowhunters… Always so serious, so eager to follow the rules…”
Alec frowns, now almost offended himself. “I stopped my own wedding to make out with the High Warlock of Brooklyn,” he argues.
Catarina lifts an eyebrow, surprised, and this is the story of how Alec Lightwood and Catarina Loss become friends by the only but groundbreaking power of sass.
My skills are
1: getting obsessed with a blog/person over night and devoting my life to them.
2: Trying to write stories about said person and failing.
3: Wanting to be friends with person who runs the blog but is sure they will not like me.
4: letting my anxiety fuck with me even though I’m on the internet.
Winter was at its highest and although Magnus’s loft had a very good heating system, he had purposely lowered it down a bit to have the excuse to be near the fire and use the blankets to warm each other up.
a very happy birthday to @themagnusbane ❤️🎂 this is late but i hope it brings you joy little sister!
magnus had been lost in his thoughts, soaking in some feeling that was humming around his brain, the remnants of the day busy in his mind as he sat there at the bar of the hunter’s moon. he’d been lost in paperwork that needed to be finished, calls that needed to be made and thoughts about the night to come. he couldn’t help the way his mind was wrapped up in the idea of a long hot bath and dinner tucked into the warmth of the living room with alec by his side, sharing conversation as they talked about their long busy days. he looked forward to slow kisses as he drifted off to sleep, maia’s voice brought magnus out of that blanket of his thoughts, bringing the bar back into focus. the lights were warm and soft, glinting off of the edges of the shelves of alcohol behind her and catching on all of her tight curls. she was smiling that knowing smile that made it clear she knew magnus had been entirely lost in his thoughts.
“i thought we were at the point where you didn’t have to ask me that,” magnus said with a wink. then he let his gaze wander off towards the door, shifting the omamori settled in his fingers. he had been holding it since he got there, worrying his thumb against the edge of it as he always did.
“is alec meeting you here?” maia’s voice drew him back as he watched a few werewolves he knew walk through the door, followed by a small band of seelies who immediately tumbled into a booth near the door. she was still smiling that knowing smile as she started to mix him a fresh martini, her hip pressed against the bar and the warm light spilling down the front of the red shirt she had on.
My mom loves telling people at parties just how ‘bright’ I am and how I’m always reading something, she does it all the time.
Mother. Stop. I’m reading gay fanfiction.
So, okay, there was this day, at this party, and she did it again but this time she took my phone off of my hands to show them (It was in english, not native, so no one knew what I was reading) and I SWEAR TO GOD, one of them suddenly had this look of recognition on her face and she fucking winked at me.
And that’s the story of how my mom’s friend knows I ship Sterek.
My friend (who doesn’t watch Shadowhunters) was looking through my camera roll (I didn’t even care cause she knows I’m fucked up) and she came across this photo of the Malec kiss.
She knows I do edits and ship gays, so she immediately assumed that it was photoshopped. She didn’t even believe me when I told her it wasn’t. I shit you not she saw the idea of me PHOTOSHOPPING IT as more likely than having an ACTUAL GAY RELATIONSHIP IN A TV PROGRAMME.
So My brother came out to my parents as Bisexual (not really a problem considering my parents being completely ok with LGBTQ community) my mom was like “so what do you want?” But my dad got really annoyed and angry and stood up and shouted at him this is what he shouted “SERIOUSLY?!? DANIEL?!? REALLY YOU ARE AWARE OF THE RULE OF YOU AND YOUR SISTER THAT IS NO BOYS IN HER ROOM AND NO GIRLS IN YOUR ROOM!!! AND YOU ARE ALREADY ANTISOCIAL AND STUCK ON YOUR PHONE BUT WITH THIS NEW INFORMATION YOU CAN’T HAVE ANY PEOPLE IN YOUR ROOM UNTIL YOU CONVINCE ME THAT THEY’RE ONLY FRIENDS!!!! *calms down**looks at my mom* Carla our kids are too antisocial. It hurts” I Just started laughing my mom trying to hide her laugh just coughed and my brother fell on the ground and started laughing and crying. My dad is disappointed with both of us :)
I was reading a Malec smut like normal person.All of a sudden my friend snatched my phone out of my hand.She was trying to read it while running.You talking about someone ran so fast they turned into a real life roadrunner.My adrenaline was so high I didn’t feel I was tired until after I got my phone back. I literally felt
like a shadowhunter on a speed and stamina rune.I chased her to the other side of the school.I got my phone back too and she only got to read a word.
““Two can play at this game.” Alec had the pleasure of watching Magnus go from confused, to a slow smirk, and understanding coming to his eyes. “I might not be able to kick him out, but I can make him want to leave.”A.K.A The story where Jace keeps interrupting Alec and Magnus’s ‘alone time,’ and they’re both super fed up.“

“When a new same-sex dancing rule gets people talking, Magnus Bane decides to take the jump from Latin to Ballroom in order to prove that change is a good thing. Looking for a new challenge, he’s determined to win the Ballroom Championships and be crowned victorious in the first same-sex partnership.Now all he needs are the right shoes, the right music, and the right partner.
Alec is well on his way to securing another victory for his parents’ prestigious dance school, yet a new face, and surprising feelings, might change that. When Magnus turns up, he sweeps more than dancing traditions off their feet.As the competition rounds heat up, and dreams hang in the balance, can the pair prove themselves to a worldwide audience of fellow dreamers, critics and cynics?“

“MAIN PAIRING: MalecThe Lightwood family is a ‘mob’ family in several cities. After Alec is released from prison, he has to take charge of the New York based organisation (which is in territory war with the Morgenstern) Magnus works independently with the distribution of several illegal substances and hates the Lightwood family with a passion. Magnus is given a chance to do something about his hate just as Alec comes into town, but will he want to then?Keep in mind: 1. Explicit sexual content in later chapters. (M/M) 2. Sadly not beta-read. 3. Other Pairings might be added to later chapters. 4. Characters are based on how they look in the TV show only, to not get it mixed up.“
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.
Clary decides to distract Maryse from her divorce and shows her how to use some mundane apps. Maryse ends up watching Magnus’ snapchat story and seeing malec being dorks. (I suck at descriptions. Also my first fic so be gentle with me)

“On one fateful Monday, Magnus Bane, store manager of the Starbucks on the corner of 8th and West 23rd, encounters the man of his dreams. Unfortunately, he forgets to get the man’s name. Thus begins the tale of two star-crossed lovers who just can’t seem to get their timing right.
— Magnus distractedly punches in the order. “Name?”“A.”Magnus is curious despite himself.“Just 'A’?” When he finally looks up and sees the man’s face for the first time, Magnus has to pick up his jaw from the floor.“
Magnus returns to the apartment late and drained of magic (i love this trope, just try and stop me reading and writing all the fics about this!!). Alec takes care of him, gets him to bed and looks after him when he wakes in the middle of the night with a fever. It kinda starts with cute, the middle is all practical comfort/care and ends with cute/fluffy. (That’s what i was aiming for anyway!)
“Magnus works part-time in a small, independent coffee shop in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, to support his degree in fashion and business at NYU.Alec only ever seems to run into him when he’s having some sort of water-related disaster.Aka three times that they meet and Alec is soaking wet. One time they get voluntarily wet, together. (Not in the way that you’re thinking, though. Get your minds out of the gutter.)“
48.3% Hey could you write a fic where other oc downworlders view Alec and Magnus relationship and initially have doubts about it since Alec is a shadowhunters AND a lightwood, but eventually they see that they are perfect for each other
(this is kind of a long prompt i’d love to write something longer for this because it’s so damn accurate and i’d love to give it time and energy)
“you really approve of this?”
catarina blinked, where she was standing against the wall, a flute of champagne in her hand and the beautiful clean lines of her suit clinging to her body and making her dark skin stand out under the warm lighting of the afternoon. she glanced over at the voice that had interrupted her, a warlock settled beside her, a frown pulled at his handsome face. he had brown skin and a beautiful set of deep red horns, his eyes glowing that same dark red as he shifted his gaze towards her.
she smiled, glancing back at where he had been staring. there across the room, magnus and alec were pressed against each other and even from here, you could hear their laughter. magnus’s hand had found it’s way under that gold suit jacket and alec was staring at him like nothing else in the world existed. catarina breathed in slow, a smile pulling at her lips as she raised her glass to her lips.
“look at them, of course i do.” she said with a shrug but the look on her face told a slightly different story. “but if he hurts magnus, i can’t say i won’t eviscerate him.”
(I saw the first season, because I had friends who wanted to watch it for the Malec, but we haven’t continued for the second season.)
But judging from what I see people saying on my dash, the Malec ship gets nowhere close to as much screen time and story as all the straight ships. In other words, it’s just like any other gay ship in any other show out there.
Only reason I’m making this post, is because people have been telling me to watch this show, this season. Saying it’s amazing, and that it deeply cares for the gay ship. That it doesn’t get pushed into the background. And to those people I just wanna say: y’all still deserve better. This is not the best people can do. This is not the show to save us all.
So please stop convincing me, or anyone else, otherwise.
Lol. So softshumjr wrote this: "(because straight ppl only know two orientations… het or gay, there’s nothing in between)" and she is right. You probabbly are the same. All the starights are gross and doesn't understand anything about LGBTQ+. And all of you never want to learn. You are all gross. I hate you. I can't stand you. I swear the next time I'm gona see you praising Malec and I'm sure you're doing this just beceause the actors are hot I'm gonna block you, lil bitch
Wow. I mean, wow. You really made it your goal to make feel bad. And congratulations you’ve accomplished that. I can’t ignore it, sorry.
Sorry, people who care about me but I need to stand up for myself. First of all, why won’t you come off anon? It’s considered polite to talk to people face to face, you know. And I prefer to know who I’m talking to.
You’re accusing me of not understanding the struggle that people of the LGBTQ+ community go through every da because I’m straight. And I agree, I can only imagine. Or, just talk with my friends who are a part of the community. Oh wait, you didn’t know that I have friends in the community? Hm, why? That’s right, because you know nothing about me, jon snow.
My parabatai is gay. The girl who takes care of me like a mother would for her daughter, is bi. Most of my tumblr friends are a part of the LGBTQ+ community. So when i’m not sure about something, or simply don’t know what something means, I ask them. I make sure to educate myself because I don’t think I could call myself a supporter if I knew only two sexualities.
You’ve said that I like Malec just because the two actors are “hot”. Excuse you, but can you EXACTLY pin point the post, where I’ve put you under this kind of impression. Because this is why I love Malec.
What they represent for the LGBTQ+ Community
No matter what, they have each other’s back
Their story is amazing
Their love is even more amazing
I look up to them. Seriously. I hope that someday someone will love me the way they love each other.
I learn from them. Because (surprise, surprise) a straight person can learn a lot about love from a LGBTQ+ couple.
Besides the accusation that I love this ship only because the actors are “hot” makes me think that either you’ve come across a lot of “fans” like this or you’re doing this yourself.
I admit that both Harry and Matthew are really handsome (yes I’m going with handsome not hot, because quoting Caleb from PLL “Call the girl beautiful, not hot. She’s a person, not a cup of tea.” and that goes to the boys also, because we usually tend to forget men get oversexualized as well as women.) but I love them for what kind of people they are, how talented they are and I look up to them. I don’t like people beceause of their looks, I like them beceause of their personality and if that’s gonna change (and I strongly hope that this never will change) then feel free to punch me in the face HARD. So glad that we have this cleared out.
You know what this whole thing remindes me of, Anon? You watch Shadowhunters right? Your hate has the same consequences like the agony rune had for Magnus. Made me relive my worst memories which in my case is being constantly bullied in primary school. You know getting thrown down the stairs or getting called a bitch for no particular reason. And I hope you are happy for making me feel even more pain.
But EVEN putting aside everything you’ve made me feel let’s talk about how your hate influences people around me, who cares about me, right?. Oh, you haven’t thought that would happen? Too bad, shame on you.
So let’s start with the person who’s words you were trying to throw against me. @softshumjr. I don’t know if you’ve noticed but we know each other. What’s more I usually call her “mum” and she calls me “daughter”. So imagine how angry she got when I sent her a screenshot of your hate. Oh wait you’ve already seen it in her post, haven’t you? I hope you have. Beceause what you did is unforgivable. You used her words COMPLETELY OUT OF CONTEXT just to sent me hate. Wow rude af, Anon. From all ppl on tumblr you’ve chosen the worst person to use her words against me. Congratulations for your stupidity, really.
Also you’ve made @spreadlovelikelegs feel bad. From what I know Gi felt bad even before I’ve sent the screen of your hate message in our chat. And this made her feel even worse. So wow you’ve hurt not one person but three.
And I’ve almost done the worst thing I could. I’ve almost believed you that I really am this kind of person. I’ve started to blame myself for Marta’s angryness and Gi’s pain. If it wasn’t for all of the kind souls who actually care about me then I don’t know what I would have done.
So from now on I’m shutting down anons. Marta’s right. Those anons have a bad influence on me. And I simply don’t want to be put through the pain all over again just because of who I am and what I like. I’m too tried.
Here is the beautiful art that I commissioned from @mundanelion for the three Malec children for my Alec Lightwood @archerrunes and my best friend’s Magnus Bane @walledoffheart . The image comes from one of our role play threads in which the kids are in the library as Rafael reads while Dia and Max look on as teen Dia entertains baby Max. We came up with Dia (who is a deaf warlock with gills) before Madzie was on the show. Rafael and Max come from the books, of course, but we have our own origin stories for them.
Be sure to enlarge the photo for all the details! Thank you so much again to the talented artist. :)
As I said today morning I want to share my thoughts about Alecs and Magnus’ second child - Rafael Santiago Lightwood-Bane.
I think CC wanted to give us somethingone to be happy about when she created Rafael and put him into this world, but after my thoughts this morning I kind of find it so mean and my Malec-Heart can’t take it.
At first I was all “Wohooooo! Yes! This. is. awesome!” and a part of me still is.
But as we know, Alec and Magnus become the adoptive parents to Max Michael Lightwood-Bane, a blue warlock baby (Born to Endless Night if you want to read it) who was found by Simon and his friends in front of the Shadowhunter Academy. The whole story is heart warming and just so lovely. It’s pretty much my favorite Malec story written by CC. As we also know the story ends with the words: ““Maybe one day it will be just you and me, my little blueberry,” Magnus said conversationally. “But not for a long, long time. We’ll take care of him, you and I. Won’t we?”“ and oh boy, you can’t tell me that you weren’t a sobbing disaster reading this…
Now I realized one thing. Rafael Santiago Lightwood-Bane is Nephilim. He’s not immortal. He’s going to get old and die. Just like Alec. So Magnus and Max will loose their husband and father. And as this wasn’t hard enough already, they will also loose their son and brother.
A father should never have to carry his child to its grave.
I mean, can you imagine that? Seeing your beloved child die, knowing that you’ll live on forever? Can you imagine seeing your big brother die, knowing that you’ll never follow him? Imagine how heartbroken and lost and incomplete Magnus and Max will feel. How do you deal with something like that?
Don’t get me wrong. Knowing that Alec is going to die at some point is really hard and my heart can’t handle any thoughts about it. Alec and Magnus were adult when they decided that they wanted to be together until Alec dies. But it’s a different thing to have two children you love and to tell them that one of them will die while the other one will live on forever.
And think about Max and Rafael as brothers as well. The time when Rafael dies will feel like "a blink of the eye” to his warlock brother (and father as well).
Idk, I can’t get this out of my head. I’m heartbroken and so sad about how dramatic this whole relationship and family are.
“With all due respect, Inquisitor,” he said carefully, “if our ultimate goal is peace rather than the same sort of violent subjugation of the Downworld that Valentine would prefer, we need to be respectful and responsive to the fact that the Downworld factions have legitimate grievances. The most pressing matter right now, of course, relates to the deaths of over a hundred of their friends and loved ones in Valentine’s massacre. After all, we have a duty under the Angel and the Accords to protect and defend Law-abiding Downworlders, not merely force them to toe the line.”
She gave him a narrow look. “And what is it you suggest then, Mr. Lightwood? I take it this unorthodox alliance you’ve made with the High Warlock of Brooklyn isn’t sufficient to quell the unrest?”
“My marriage was the price of getting the Seelies to even sit down at the negotiating table,” he said, keeping his voice level. “And again, with all due respect, Inquisitor, my name is now Lightwood-Bane.”
She blinked slowly, the first hint of a reaction other than disdain she’d given him since their conversation had begun. “That’s not a name recognized by the Clave.”
“No, it isn’t. And I understand it may take time for the Clave to agree to allowing any formal use of my married name. But whether the Clave recognizes it is immaterial. The cost of getting the Seelies to consider treaty talks was that I make a marriage—to a Downworlder—that I respect and honor the same way I would a marriage to another Shadowhunter. I can hardly claim I met that condition if I disdain my husband’s name.”
She studied him for a long moment, and Alec wondered if his refusal to flinch or be ashamed had impressed her. “Very well, Mr. Lightwood-Bane, what is your suggestion for how to settle your local Downworld problem?”
“The Downworlders’ first demand is that Valentine be handed over for execution in accordance with their laws. I have explained to the faction leaders that it isn’t possible, and because they recognize the importance of recovering the Mortal Cup, they have agreed to shelve that demand—” He drew a deep breath. “—on the condition that Valentine is brought to New York to stand trial here, a trial to which they are permitted attendance, so that they can witness him facing justice.”
My hobbie is to send my homofobic friends fragments of my gay fanfics changing the names (so it looks like a hetero story) and then reveal the truth, after they’ve told me how romantic and beautiful is.

“Can’t you knock?” Jace snaps as he jumps up from the couch where he was sitting with Clary when Magnus, with Alec in tow, walked into the room.
Magnus stops. “Why? I’m not entering a lady’s boudoir. This is my own living room.”
Then he narrows his eyes at Jace, more specifically at his state of undress - the young man is decidedly lacking in the shirt department - and twirls a finger between Jace and Clary. “What were you two doing on my couch, considering your familial status?”
