To Build A Home, final chapter of Bright Lights, Small Town (4/4, 32,6k)

The thing about promises, whether they were an oath for the truth in a courtroom or an unspoken one of love in a private moment between two souls, is that they tend to get broken.

Perhaps it was why Magnus expected Alec to break his word. Because people who kept their promises had been rare in his life. Magnus had little faith in people - he could hear Catarina in his head telling him it was because he had lost faith in the one person that he was supposed to always trust when she had left him, but it was too late to ponder on that.

Available on Ao3 here.


After dinner, they sat outside and stared at the town lights. 

Aurora: It’s beautiful here. I don’t think I can ever leave Windenburg. 

Taycion: Me either. Although I may have to, to go to college. 

Aurora: Yeah, me too. Where will you go?

Taycion: Where my parents decide for me. I guess it comes with the territory of having overbearing parents… 

Aurora: Is that why you were so determined to score well in exams. 

Taycion: Partly, but mostly because I liked talking with you, and spending time with you. 

Aurora: Oh.

Taycion: Is that a good oh or a bad oh. 

Aurora: I would take that as a good oh since you said this is a date now.
Bright Lights, Small Town by Lecrit

It’s official, this is my FAVORITE fanfiction!

I didn’t really read AU’s to start with, but this is just the most lovely, rom-com style story, and I love it so much!!

Thank you @lecrit for creating such a beautiful alternate world for Malec, for making their characterization so believable, for painting such a brilliantly detailed and wonderful picture of the world of this story and the family that’s built within it, your writing is so beautifully done, it feels like I’m visualizing everything, like I’m watching a Nicholas Sparks movie, and I adored every minute of it!!

Look I know they’re a sign of uninhibited consumerism and generally regarded as a petty display of opulence by largely middle class Americans but can I just say?

Christmas lights make me really, really happy.


Thursday night in Leavenworth. We have decided Thursday night is perfect for seeing the lights. We missed the live music and Santa, but also missed all the crowds and really got to enjoy the town, and the lights! 

We also got a fairly decent family photo that is perfectly blurry. Thanks to the random lady that offered to get a pic of us all. At least I am represented in one photo from our little getaway! 

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
