until then... have fun reading

***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.***

FALL WITHOUT WINGS by @notcrypticbutcoy [ M | 144k | WIP ]

Alec has been told the same stories all his life. He’s been taught the same lines, over and over again. Downworlders are reckless, impulsive, demonic. They’re not to be trusted.

And Magnus Bane is the epitome of everything evil about Downworlders.

At least, that’s what people keep telling him. Alec’s not quite so sure anymore.

Or: In which the Nephilim have wings, are taught to loathe Downworlders, and Alec is presented with a conundrum when Magnus Bane saves his life.

HOLDING THE STICK by @baneismyexistence​  [ M | AU | 80.3k | complete ]

Alec Lightwood has dreamed of hoisting Lord Stanley since he was eight. It’s in his blood. He’s spent the last five years trying to make that dream a reality, only managing to fall short each time.

Until a scandal leads to a multi-team trade that sends Magnus Bane his way. One of the top performing wingers in the league. An up and coming star.

And the most handsome man Alec has ever met.

He’s doomed.

STRANGE LOVE by arandomfan91 [ M | AU | 46.6k | complete ]

Alec is in love with Magnus. Magnus needs Alec to be his fake boyfriend. What could possibly go wrong?

STRANGE LOVE - EXTRAS by arandomfan91 [ T | AU | 13.8k | complete ]

Missing scenes and chapter re-writes from Strange Love, all told from Magnus’ POV.

These extras are tied in with the fic Strange Love. You should read that story first before reading this!

FOOLS RUSH IN by @m-aleciseverything [ M | AU | 85.2k | complete ]

Alec, Jace, and Simon go to Vegas for Jace’s bachelor party and things get a little bit ridiculous.

Alec wakes up the next morning and…wait a minute, who’s that in his bed?

AND THE OSCAR GOES TO… by @lecrit  [ E | AU | 21.5k | complete | Stars Aligned #1 ]

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.

IT’S ALWAYS YOUR MOVE by @lecrit  [ E | AU | 15.5k | complete | Stars Aligned #2 ]

Maryse Lightwood is fierce, determinate and she is standing right in front of Magnus, on the threshold of his house, the scowl on her face announcing nothing good.

Magnus hasn’t seen her since the Oscars ceremony three days ago. To be fair, he hasn’t really seen anyone, too busy that he had been catching up on lost time with Alec.

Magnus thought he could be tranquil forever after winning an Oscar and finally confessing his feelings to Alec. Magnus was wrong.

WALK OF FAME by @lecrit  [ M | AU | 13.5k | complete | Stars Aligned #3 ]

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.

CATCHING THE LOVE BUG by @daddariossmile [ M | AU | 3.5k | complete ]

In which the Lightwood siblings always end up in the hospital, Alec spends a lot of time waiting around, and the charming Dr. Bane is more than a little attractive. 

SYMPATHY FOR THE PRINCE by @ketzwrites [ M | AU | 31.9k | complete ]

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.

TODAY YOUR BARISTA IS… by @baneandgone [ G | AU | 2.4k | complete ]

THIGH HOLSTER by @everydayisonfire [ E | PWP | 2.2k | complete ]

Magnus doesn’t get distracted by a certain Shadowhunter, wearing a tight thigh holster.
Nope. Absolutely not.

ON THE SUBWAY by The_Forgotten_Nobody [ G | AU | 1.4k | complete | On The Subway #1 ]

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.

MR LIGHTWOOD, MR BANE by TruePlainHearts [ E | PWP | 2.2k | complete ]

“Lovely to see you, Mr Lightwood.”

“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.

MR. LIGHTWOOD by @nanf1c​ [ M | 1.2k | complete ]

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.

YOU HAVE ME by @hufflebee​ [ G | 664 | complete ]

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.

An armour.

PARADISE IN BETWEEN by Teumessian [ E | 7.8k | complete | The Boundless Saga #4 ]

In the months following the loss of the Mortal Cup, anxieties run deep. It’s no time for a vacation, and yet… Magnus has had a lot of years to practice the art of persuasion.

WITH MY BODY AND SOUL, I WANT YOU MORE THAN YOU’LL EVER KNOW by liamandzayn [ E | PWP | 4.3k | complete ]

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.

BEGIN AGAIN by ReneeWritesx [ not rated | AU | 21k | complete | A Light To Call Home #1 ]

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 stays at the Institute for the first time.

BETTER FOR YOU by @zrdu [ not rated | 9.2k | complete ]

Magnus’ and Alec’s relationship comes to a sudden halt when Maryse interferes. They both try to cope without each other.

WITH YOU WRAPPED AROUND ME, THE WORLD FEELS PERFECT by @matsdaddario  [ E | 3.6k | complete | Lovely Firsts #3 ]

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.

ONE DAY by @magnusragnor​ [ T | 1.3k | complete ]

“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.

MORNINGS LIKE THIS by @softmagnusbane​ [ G | 1.1k | complete ]

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.

PLAYING WITH FIRE by Obsessivecompulsivereadr [ M | 3k | complete ]

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.

SO BRIGHT by @lemonoclefox [ G | 17.5k | complete ]

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.

SLOW ME DOWN FOR A MINUTE by @abloodneed​ [ E | 7k | complete ]

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.

I want you so badly.

BLUE CHRISTMAS by Hobbit69 [ E | AU | 1.5k | complete | Blue Steels Series #6 ]

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.

BLUE RIGHTEOUSNESS by Hobbit69 [ E | AU | 41.1k | complete | Blue Steels Series #7 ]

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.

TO LOVE A SHADOWHUNTER by Madalena [ E | 10k | complete | The Peacemaker Chronicles #1 ]

“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.

Someone had changed him.

OBLIVION by @champagnemagnus [ T | 2.7k | complete ]

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.”

ONE SHOW ONLY by @gingersnapwolves [ E | AU | 29.4k | complete ]

It’s hard to stay in the closet when the guy you had a one-night stand with two nights ago turns out to be your new partner … but Alec will be damned if he isn’t going to give it a try.

THE RED BUTTON by @ketzwrites [ M | AU | 38k | complete ]

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?

word count: 4,558

***I can’t believe there are still 4(!) months left until the show and more importantly until Malec is back. Honestly, who tf thought that bringing the show back in April was a good idea? I just wanna talk. Especially when seeing all these spoilers and teasers. This is really not helping here!

At least we still have Malec fanfics left to keep us entertained. And with Christmas and the holidays right around the corner, there is time to get invested in some new and amazing fics, am I right? So snuggle yourself into a fluffy and warm blanket, drink some hot chocolate and tea and see these two idiots fall in love over and over and over again.

As always, I hope you’re gonna enjoy this fic rec. The 6th one already, can you believe? I am still so overwhelmed when looking at the notes from the last one. You guys are amazing! Thank you so so much. But now, have fun reading!***

BETWEEN THE LINES by @msalexiscriss  [ E | AU | 240k | complete ]

Special Agent Alec Lightwood’s been chasing the renowned thief and conman extraordinaire Magnus Bane for five years now. When a criminal from the past, Valentine Morgenstern, threatens their city and both their reputations, the duo will have to do the unimaginable and team up to restore the peace in the big old city. Between secrets, betrayals, heartbreaking truths, and sick games, Alec and Magnus will have to learn to play between the lines of good and evil in order to carry out their mission and make it out alive. Will they succeed?

DEEPER THAN THE TRUTH by @insiemes [ M | AU | 150k | complete ]

Alec Lightwood is a world-famous author, though the world knows him only under his pseud: Gideon Archer. Magnus Bane is a fashion designer who just happens to be a big fan of Gideon’s work.

THE WAY IT SHOULD BE by @m-aleciseverything [ T | AU | 53.6k | complete ]

Alec Lightwood had his life figured out: a job that he was passionate about, a beautiful boyfriend who loved him, and friends and family surrounding him.

Everything was perfect or should have been perfect, if it weren’t for the nagging feeling that something in his life was missing. And how was he supposed to go on with his life after he met Magnus Bane and suddenly that feeling was gone?

ADDICTED TO YOU by @imawriteriwrite [ E | AU | 78.7k | complete | Fuck Buddies AU #1 ]

Magnus Bane’s the head of his own company. Alec Lightwood is in his last year of law school. They’ve never met but have one thing in common: neither does relationships. Just one night stands. That is until they find themselves matched on a hookup app and suddenly one night is not enough.

Also known as the one where Magnus and Alec meet and think they can have no strings attached sex and not develop feelings.

STAY HERE FOREVER by @imawriteriwrite [ M | AU | 11.9k | complete | Fuck Buddies AU #2 ]

A year before, they didn’t even know each other. Then there was this hookup app, and months where they thought they could be “just fuck buddies”. Things went downhill. Things went uphill.

Now, it’s been months since Magnus Bane (head of Bane Co.) and Alec Lightwood (kind of officially a lawyer) finally figured their shit out and started a healthy relationship. Now it’s Valentine’s Day and their relationship is put in danger as they compete to out romance each other.

THE BRIGHTEST SHADE OF THE SUN by @theonetruenorth [ E | 3k | complete ]

Magnus leaned over him and brushed his lips down Alec’s spine, a feather-light caress that told Alec much more than words ever could. He breathed against the warm skin, pressing kisses over a couple chosen spots; a beauty mark, an old scar, the looping end of a black rune. Alec laughed when he hit a particularly ticklish spot over his ribs. Magnus ran his hand over the back of Alec’s thigh and hummed approvingly when Alec spread his legs a little more, exposing himself.

IT’S A YES FROM ME by @ketzwrites [ G | AU | 23.2k | complete ]

Reclusive singer Alec Lightwood has been taking some time away from the spotlight for a few years now. He has lost his inspiration, his reason to keep making music.

That is, until his manager, Luke Garroway, asks him to enter the panel of the ridiculous singing competition The Angel’s Voice. Alec only says yes because that means keeping an eye on Clary and Simon. He hates those fixed, degrading TV shows with a burning passion. Hopefully, Alec figures, he’ll get some inspiration back watching new comers try their luck on TV. Some of them are bound to be good.

It isn’t until Magnus Bane walks on stage, however, that Alec realizes just how right he is.

INVICTUS by @lecrit [ M | AU | 30.2k | complete ]

“You should get a tattoo.”

Alec firmly believed in coincidences, in the serendipity that could bring the hazards of life, but even he could admit that sometimes, things seemed to happen for a reason. He was too much of a pragmatic person to truly believe in fate and destiny.

So even when Jace blurted those words at him as he stumbled into his shop, they remained abstract concepts to him, no matter how it nudged at the back of his mind.

ROSES ARE RED, SO IS YOUR FACE by @madzieloss [ not rated | 5k | complete ]

Before Alec could even wonder what that meant, much less ask, Cat re-entered the room and Alec became overtly aware of how red he was as her eyes landed on his face.

And she cooed at him. If anything, he turned even redder. Was she really… cooing at him?

Cat laughed. “Well, I must say. I’ve been around for a while, and I’ve never seen a shadowhunter blush before. How adorable.”

(or, five times cat makes alec blush, and one time he gets her back)

CALL YOU HOME by Airuna [ T | AU | 62.2k | complete ]

Alec Lightwood was pretty content with his life, he had a successful job leading a law firm with one of his best friends, a great relationship with his siblings and a perfectly acceptable apartment. He really wasn’t looking for anything more but when he finds a little girl waiting all alone in a coffee shop his life will change irremediably and maybe that’s not such a bad thing after all.


The one in which Alec makes up with his mother, gets a boyfriend and adopts a little girl. Just not necessarily in that order.

LIONHEART by bumblebeesknees [ E | 8.4k | complete ]

Magnus’ bed hasn’t felt like his own without Alec in it. His body hasn’t felt the same without Alec’s warmth pressed up against it. From the second Alec takes his hand, Magnus doesn’t waste any time fixing either of those things. [Coda to 2x20]

THE OPTIMIST IN ME by nygmasneck [ G | 1.4k | complete ]

Days off are rare for them, and Alec intends to make this one last a lifetime.

HOME IS WHEREVER I’M WITH YOU by @softbimagnus [ G | 954 | complete ]

Magnus dropped his hands to Alec’s chest in a gesture so familiar it made Alec ache with how much he’d missed this.

“Ready to go home?”

Alec blinked in surprise.


Alec wasn’t sure he’d ever get to think of the loft as home again, not since the last time he rolled out of Magnus’ bed before the situation with the soul sword came to light.

BLUE CIRCLE by Hobbit69 [ E | AU | 35.9k | complete | Blue Steel Series #8 ]

When Sophia calls Magnus in a panic, telling him that someone has murdered her best friend, Magnus does the only thing he can, he sends Alec. Alec discovers during the course of the investigation, that there is more going on with teenagers than he thought. During the investigation, Alec and Jace find that there is a circle of teenagers who, in order to join the group, have to prove their loyalty by rape and murder. Who better to practice on than the girls in their social group?

There isn’t much Alec Lightwood wouldn’t do for his family. But perhaps he should have said no just this once. Now he’s being targeted by one Sebastian Verlac and forced to seek help from an unlikely source.

Or in which Magnus is a gangster and Alec is in way over his head.

YOUR FULL ATTENTION by @ladymatt [ M | 1.8k | complete ]

Waking up in the arms of his boyfriend, Magnus Bane, was always something to savour for Alec Lightwood…..when he had the time. Unfortunately for them both, on this occasion a Clave meeting prevented a proper ‘Good Morning!’ With an appointment arranged for the 'Head’ of the Institute to shake hands with The High Warlock Of Brooklyn later that day, he should have known Magnus would still make him pay for choosing the Clave over his cock!

IN ANOTHER LIFE by @klynnwordsadhoc [ T | AU | 3.4k | complete | It Started With A Wedding #1 ]

Alec is an ex-Marine Captain, recently returned from overseas to take over his parent’s company, struggling to adjust to life as a civilian once more. Magnus is a fashion designer who has many better things he could do with his weekend. They both attend the same wedding, and they’re both very pleased about it later.

ODD HOURS by @klynnwordsadhoc [ E | AU | 3.9k | complete | It Started With A Wedding #2 ]

Magnus sighs, “Drill sergeant,” he complains.
Alec laughs. “That’s Army. It’s drill instructor in the Marines and I never was one.”
“You should have been.”

Magnus has a late night at work and Alec worries.

GOOD OUR WHOLE LIVES by @beatperfume [ E | AU | 34.8k | complete ]

They say that prostitution is the world’s oldest profession, and it’s just as true for the Downworld as the mundane one.

But this is the first time Magnus has ever heard of a nephilim hustling his crowd.

THE WAY I FEEL FOR YOU by @theonetruenorth [ E | 7.3k | complete ]

The drawer was filled with sex toys.

Neatly laid out on a cushy bed of silk lining the drawer. There were a lot of them. Alec immediately felt a little lost as he surveyed the variety of colors and shapes and sizes. There were some that were anatomically-correct but some toys looked weird as heck, and Alec really wasn’t sure how one could use them. There were small ones and big ones and holy shit, how did you even fit some of them into your body?!

A pair of arms wrapped around his middle from behind, startling him so much he actually yelped and flailed a little, luckily managing to avoid hitting Magnus in the face with his elbow.

“See anything you like?”

YOUR WORD IS BUTTHEAD by @lecrit [ G | AU | 3.4k | complete ]

Alec’s kid has a bad tendency of being overly competitive. Which is fine, really, because the apple never falls far from the tree, and Alec is definitely to blame for that.

Or the one where Alec’s and Magnus’ sons compete against each other in a spelling bee contest and they’re both overly competitive about who is the best.

BUT SOME OF US ARE LOOKING AT THE STARS by @lecrit [ G | AU | 4.3k | complete ]

There aren’t many things that Alec loves as much as he loves the stars.
Most nights, he just likes to sit on his balcony and watch the eerie darkness drape over the sky and the silver glow of the moon, surrounded by the stars shaping constellations he knows by heart.

This is a special night for him and his son. The only night in the year Alec lets Max stay up after midnight, so they can watch Perseids meteor shower together on the rooftop of their building.

Alec doesn’t expect to find out they weren’t the only ones to get the idea.

THE RIGHT PRICE by Marie_Tomas [ T | AU | 7k | complete ]

Magnus Bane has worked as a lawyer for several years, taking his job very seriously. The Lightwoods have always been one of his major professional rivals in the city, but this hasn’t stopped Magnus from falling in lust, and a little in love, with one particular member of the Lightwood family, Alec Lightwood.

When shy, nervous Alec asks Magnus for his help with representing one of the Lightwoods’ clients, Magnus makes a joking, flirty comment about what he would expect from Alec in return for a victory in the courtroom. A major misunderstanding happens as a result.

BUCKLE UP by @ketzwrites [ E | AU | 14.8k | complete ]

Alec has been Magnus Bane’s private driver for three years now. They have the perfect relationship; good-hearted, mutually supportive of each other, and frankly amicable. Maybe too amicable, in fact, considering they have been sleeping together for the better part of those three years.

However, when Alec receives a surprise offer for another job, that perfect relationship crumbles. It turns out that, without the anchors of a professional bond between them, Alec and Magnus are left to face something they had refused to think of before: their feelings.

SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL by @magnusragnor [ T | AU | 13.8k | complete ]

“I’m a grown ass man who never learned to swim. I’d laugh at myself if it wasn’t so embarrassing,” Alec replied, shrugging.

“You’re a grown ass man who never learned to swim and has sucked up his pride to try and do something about it. That’s admirable, nothing to be laughed at,” Magnus retorted, finally meeting Alec’s eyes and smiling warmly. “Shall we?” he asked, jerking his head towards the pool.

(aka Magnus is a lifeguard at a local pool and Alec doesn’t know how to swim)

WHAT’S IT GONNA BE? by @lemonoclefox [ M | AU | 49.3k | complete | What’s It Gonna Be Series #1 ]

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.

UP IN THE SKY by @ketzwrites [ T | AU | 23.8k | complete ]

When General Imogen of the Shadowhunter Forces is found dead, the country of Alicante is shocked. As he campaigns to come back to the office, Former President Valentine Morgenstern points out the Seelies as responsible for her assassination, calling for a war in response.

Senator Magnus Bane knows war means death to the hundreds of Downworlders who live in the country. He needs to stop Valentine from winning the election, by any means necessary.

However, the Downworlders votes won’t be enough. Magnus needs the Nephilim to vote for him as well. If only he can convince one of the national heroes of the Light Squad to back him up, Magnus just might have a chance to make history and become the first Downworlder President of Alicante.

MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME by @imawriteriwrite [ G | AU | 59.4k | complete ]

Magnus Bane had a plan, a perfect Christmas Eve just like always. Hang out with his friends, bask in the Christmas Spirit. Then everything went wrong.

Now he’s stuck reliving the same day again and again and again. The bright side? Maybe Alec Lightwood isn’t as terrible as Magnus always thought.

***Can you believe we have to go through a 3 month hiatus until we get new episodes again? What to do on Mondays from now on? Well, I know it is not the same but how about reading some amazing Malec fics? Because there simply can’t be enough Malec love out there and somehow it makes the wait to see these two back on our screens a bit more bearable if you ask me.

Anyway, I hope you gonna enjoy this 4th edition as much as the previous ones. Again, a huge thank you to everyone who left notes and/or told me how much they enjoyed these recs. It’s very much appreciated, so yes, if you want me to continue doing this, let me know, okay? Have fun reading!***

KISS WITH A FIST by @clockworkswans [ M | AU | 225k | WIP | Kiss With A Fist universe #1 ]

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).

WILD LIFE by @crazyellephantrambles [ not rated | AU | 69k | complete ]

Alec Lightwood likes to go on road trips. He doesn’t pick up hitchhikers. But the one time he does, it’s Magnus. He’s in for an adventure or maybe even fall in love.

ANYTHING by @baneismyexistence [ M | 36.2k | complete | Anything verse #1 ]

Magnus would do anything for Alec, and Alec doesn’t know what to do with that.

EVERYTHING by @baneismyexistence [ M | 70k | complete | Anything verse #2 ]

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.

AND YOU HAVE ALWAYS BEEN MINE TOO by @magicandarchery [ E | AU | 10.4k | WIP ]

New graduates and best friends Magnus and Alec have both graduated from the University of Idris with top honors. Graduation and family expectations, however, carved out two very different paths for their lives.

Making the age-old promise on graduation night to get married if they were still single by thirty had been an easy agreement to make. There was no chance it would, or even could, ever possibly happen. It simply wasn’t legal.

When Magnus coincidentally re-enters Alec’s life eight years later, each are confronted with the unsettled reality of their lives, and the rekindling of long-buried feelings for the other. They decide to reinstate the promise they had made as motivation to get back into the dating scene.

But can they push aside their own feelings for each other as they go on this journey of finding true love?

Or: the “Single by 30” Malec AU that nobody asked for.

STAR WARS: A SEARCH FOR JUSTICE by @sweetillusionketz [ M | AU | 9.8k | WIP ]

After the MORTAL WAR that wiped out the JEDI ORDER and the reconstruction of THE CLAVE to govern the galaxy, military force, THE CIRCLE, has been monitoring planets for any trace of remaining intergalactic terrorism and obliterating possible threats under the name of peace. Each strike leaves death and destruction behind.

Former Senator, General Luke Garroway, leads the DOWNWORLDER RESISTANCE, a counterpoint to the Circle, in hope of finding enough evidence of abuse of power to dismantle the organisation and restore real peace and justice to the galaxy.

In order to do so, Luke has sent Izzy Lightwood, his most daring pilot, and the mysterious Magnus Bane to search for survivors of the last attack…

FANTASY by @theonetruenorth [ E | PWP | 3.5k | complete | Shadowhunters Headcanons #20 ]

“Mhmm,” Magnus hummed as they broke apart and he rocked his hips minutely, the slight movement enough to make them both shiver. “This is getting dangerously close to one of my fantasies, so maybe we should stop, if you don’t want this to go any further.”

“What fantasy?” Alec murmured, craning his neck up again to brush his lips against Magnus’ but the warlock teasingly moved just out of reach.

“Well,” Magnus started, looking at Alec through half-closed eyes and with a hint of a smirk tugging at the corner of his mouth, “I have never had sex inside the Institute.”

BLUE EXTRAVAGANCE by Hobbit69 [ E | AU | 27.8k | complete | Blue Steel Series #5 ]

When Detective Alexander Lightwood-Bane is called to the site of a bizarre murder, he doesn’t expect to recognize the victim, but that’s exactly what happens.

When a second victim is found, Alec and his partner, Jace Herondale, realize that their killer has a “type.” Unfortunately, Magnus just so happens to fit that type.

WE CAN SOLVE THIS TOGETHER by @softshumjr [ E | AU | 58.9k | WIP ]

Alec and Magnus have been friends since high school. They both love each other but are afraid to say anything because they believe the other one doesn’t feel the same way and it’ll ruin their friendship.

Alec and Jace are working on an overdose case and are stuck. Can Magnus be the one to help them solve the case?

UNKISS ME by @sweetillusionketz [ G | AU | 11.3k | complete ]

Magnus Bane loved New York. I mean, what other city in the world held Christmas raves?

He especially loved it when he managed to convince Ragnor and Catarina to join him. Spending time with your chosen family during the holidays was the best thing in the world.

The only thing that could make it even better, however, would be getting to know that very attractive stranger that just wouldn’t take his eyes off Magnus. Tall, dark and handsome was just what Magnus wanted to end his amazing night.

All he needed was an opportunity and it came, in the form of a well-placed mistletoe.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, DOCTOR LIGHTWOOD by @softdaddario [ T | AU | 3.1k | complete ]

Magnus Bane agreed to volunteer at a children’s hospital on Christmas Eve, wanting to help make sure the kids got the most wonderful evening. Turned out the kids weren’t the only one who were gonna have a merry Christmas, Magnus realised when he met the young Doctor Lightwood during his time at the hospital.

Magnus rarely (if ever) wakes before Alec, but this time he has… intentions.

FIRST TIME ALEC TOPS by @theonetruenorth [ E | 1.9k | complete | Shadowhunters Headcanons #9 ]

Somehow, they end up with Alec flat on his back and Magnus straddling him, his hands cradling Alec’s jaw while his tongue explores the nephilim’s mouth. It’s a slow, lazy, and unhurried kiss. The kind of kiss that says ‘there isn’t anywhere else I would rather be right now’ and ‘I want to explore every inch of your body’ and ‘I love you’.

CHAIN YOU UP by WholockedHunter [ E | 3.6k | complete ]

Magnus and Alec are having some kinky sex …

CAN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF OF YOU by @deepbutdazzlingdarkness [ E | PWP | 2.1k | complete | The Thirst Is Real #3 ]

If Magnus were more alert, he probably would’ve recognized the obvious signs of someone being in the loft: the boots by the front door, the leather jacket laying on the couch, the empty wine glass sitting on his drink cart, but as it is, he doesn’t notice anything off until he’s standing right in front of his bedroom door and realizes the light is on.

I NEED YOU SO MUCH CLOSER by @deepbutdazzlingdarkness [ E | 5.2k | complete | The Thirst Is Real #4 ]

Work has been keeping Alec and Magnus apart for a couple of weeks and once they finally see each other again, Alec can barely control himself.

AKA the first time they have sex at the Institute. Also the first time they say “I love you”.

For Magnus and Alec, navigating their relationship is hard enough without outside forces trying to tear them a part. Quite literally in some cases.

PRESSED UP AGAINST YOU, EVERYTHING IS OKAY by @matsdaddario [ E | 3.6k | complete | Lovely Firsts #2 ]

It’s new, this feeling like even though everything is falling apart that this part of his world makes sense. He likes it, wants to keep it.

“Hi,” he breathes. Magnus stands in front of him, and Alec can’t help himself, doesn’t want to stop himself, from leaning down that little bit to capture Magnus’s mouth with his own.

I SEE FIRE by @lecrit [ M | AU | 12.1k | complete ]

There was one simple and unique rule about being friends with Magnus and Alec: never, ever, no matter the circumstances, not even if you were drunk as an armada of skunks, engage into a debate about pop culture with either of them, and especially not the both of them.

TRUST ME by @sweetillusionketz [ T | AU | 18.5k | complete ]

Magnus Bane has a problem with that arrogant brat that keeps showing his face to every important street race in the city. Damn Jace Lightwood and his annoying habit of winning even though he’s just a stupid high school boy. That’s insulting.

Fuck Jace. But more importantly, fuck his sweet looking older brother, who just happen to not have the slightest idea of who Magnus is. If everything goes according to plan, Magnus will have put Jace back to his insignificant place and gotten lucky with a gorgeous oblivious guy.

Perfect plan is perfect. Nothing could go wrong.

Eremin Beauty and the Beast AU

Wow this is trash

Alright, first I just gotta say who would be each character so…

Belle - Armin

The Beast - Eren (It’s his Titan form)

Maurice - Armin’s Grandfather

Gaston - Reiner

LeFou - Connie

Lumiere - Bertholdt

Cogsworth - Jean

Evil Lady at the beginning - Mikasa

Mrs. Potts - Erwin (shh)

Chip - Levi

Eren is selfish prince, and Mikasa, disguised as an old lady curses him to be a beast after revealing her actual self. He has until he’s twenty to make someone love him unless he’s going to stay a beast forever. I could take a while to explain the entire plot but I’m assuming most everyone knows it.

Armin loves books, and he’s pretty much read like everything in the local library. He sometimes gets bored of everyday life so he enjoys the adventures in books, their magic, romance, and adventure. Because of this, everyone thinks he’s odd. (Armin is smart and has a huge vocabulary) Armin dreams of meeting a perfect prince one day or just someone to stay with forever but no one in the village is good enough. On the other hand, Reiner find Armin extremely attractive and wants to marry him for just that reason. Every woman in town is jealous of Armin because of this, because Reiner, being the town hunk, is swooned over daily by almost all the women.
One day, Reiner tries proposing to Armin. Armin says no, and after a bit of pestering, Reiner causes Armin runs off to forest. He sits down and reads for a while and then eventually gets and wanders around a bit. He eventually stumbles upon Eren’s castle, and thinking it’s abandoned, decides to explore it. When he stumbles upon the subjects-turned-household items he’s a bit shocked but just goes with it.
Eren watches Armin from a distance for a while the subjects treat the blond nicely, hoping that Armin will be able to break the curse. Eren does find this strange cute, though isn’t so sure because he assumed it needed to be a
girl and Armin is a boy
Armin finds somewhere to sleep and in the morning Eren finally approaches him. Armin is intimidated at first but tries getting along with him in hopes that Eren won’t hurt him

Meanwhile, Armin’s grandpa notices he’s been missing for a day and tries getting help. Reiner jumps at the chance to woo Armin

Armin is still pretending to be nice to Eren. Soon enough, they have breakfast together and build a bit more trust. Eren feels himself getting fond of Armin so he starts being rude and trying to drive him away, and gets kinda grumpy. Armin was his only hope of breaking this curse and he’s choosing to ignore him. Plus, Armin is sad because Eren is scary when he’s mean.
Eren convinces himself that the curse can’t be broken.
The subjects insist that Armin is the right one, while Eren continues to refuse.
The subjects hold dinner, hoping to make Armin fall in love first. They put on a little performance, and Eren goes to check out what all the noise is. He sees Armin being happy and can’t help but smile and decided to take him to the library where they have fun talking and reading until Eren falls asleep. Not able to help his curiosity, the blond wanders out and to the west wing. Eren stops him from seeing too much; he had woken up once he heard footsteps, and yells at Armin when he specifically told him not to go there.
Armin runs out because he thought Eren was his friend finally, and wants to go home but gets chased by wolves, luckily Eren saves him but gets scratched.
Armin nurses him back to health and the bond between them slowly strengthens again. After Eren is pretty much healed, the two start spending time together. Whether it’s feeding birds in the courtyard or just eating a meal together, they enjoy the time spent together and slowly feel that they are falling for the other.
The subjects try moving things along quicker because of the curse. Regardless, Eren tells them to stop and claims to only think of Armin as a friend but finds himself trying to impress him constantly, one time making the subjects clean up the castle (not just cleaning it up but making it fancy) and Eren starts dressing fancy as well.
One night, they’re hanging out in the library Eren has pretty much forgotten that he’s running out of time. Armin falls asleep and Eren easily carries him to his room and mutters “I love you” to the sleeping blond, because at this point he does. Except Armin was half awake.
The blond is stuttering I mean Eren acts like a Prince Charming to him but doesn’t look the part and stuff so he’s confused about his feelings. So he goes outside to think and Eren thinks that that is a kind way of just rejecting him.

Meanwhile, Reiner has a group of villagers and is looking through the woods, assuming Armin just got lost. After Armin left, they break into the castle.
Eren’s cursed subjects try fending them off and do a good job either knocking them out or sending them running. During this, Eren in his room being sad and feeling rejected when Reiner sneaks up behind him and shoots him with an arrow. They end up battling on the roof. (The rose is almost completely wilted by now)
Armin came rushing back when he heard fighting and runs and finds Eren about to drop Reiner off the roof. At this exact moment, the last petal falls off the rose.
Eren collapses and drops Reiner next to him. Armin rushes over, thinking Eren died from injuries he earned during his short battle with Reiner. Armin collapses next to Eren and finally replies, “I love you too.” Now Eren’s curse was lifted just in time. Armin weeps in joy and holds onto his love as the castle transforms into its former glory and the subjects morph back into humans. Finally, Eren transforms into the extremely handsome (and hot) boy that he truly is. Eren and Armin kiss and get married asap the end.

Yep, that’s my Iwaoi list. I really don’t know what it says about me that the NSFW is on the bigger side but it seems I just am very sensual?  (゚ー゚)

One thing I would like to say at the end because this is something I find to be often forgotten: most of the fanfiction are pure work of fantasy without real realism - gay relationships face a lot of trouble, be it in Japan or in western countries. Society is often forgotten in this fics, what’s okay for me, because I read them for my satisfaction but I just want to remind you that this is (at most) not a realistic depiction of gay romance. Real relationship often don’t depend on roles like top/bottom, some aren’t into anal sex (as it’s simply not a thing for everyone!) and if they have penetatrive intercourse then A LOT of preperation is needed (far more than a bit of lube and three fingers). I always search for fanfiction that is more on the realistic side, be it about sex or about the problems their relationship faces, because it’s something that I already experienced myself and if you have recommendations for me, I would love to get them! 

And if your made it until here, thanks for reading my tiny rambling and have a lot of fun with reading! (っ´▽`)っ

Hogwarts AU Part 1 | Crankgameplays

For the sake of the story I made the reader a Gryffindor. You don’t know how much this pains me as a Slytherin but alas it must be done *cue dramatics*.

It’s a two parter because I have to go now (its 3) and I won’t be back home until 10. Work sucks. Okay have fun reading.

Part Two


“Did you hear that?” You hissed tugging on your friends arm. She turned around to glare at you when the cracking noise repeated only louder and definitely closer to the two of you.

Kathryn ducked behind a tree and tugged you with her. You put a hand to your mouth, the Ravenclaw doing the same. You two heard the sound of hooves on the forest floor and you tried harder to blend into the trees. The hooves stopped a few feet away from you but then took off on a sprint far away from you two.

“Jesus, was that a Centaur?” You whispered, Kathryn nodded.

“We should head back it’s almost time for dinner” she said tugging your arm. You stared at the ground as you two walked. It was a warm evening for once, the school year only starting. You’ve always loved the forbidden forest, herbology had always been your strong point. The smell of the earth and the sight of plants that you couldn’t even look up in a text book was fascinating to you. Amy was constantly worried for you so the Ravenclaw made Kathryn go with you whenever you wanted to run headfirst into the woods.

Before long you two were back in the warm castle and made your way into the great hall. People were still staggering in so your entrance went unnoticed to all, except a few Gryffindor boys and an anxious Ravenclaw.

“See you later Kathryn thanks for keeping me from getting killed…again” You said waving at your friend. She laughed and winked at you going to her table. You weren’t friends with any of the Gryffindors which absolutely sucked during meal times. Taking a seat near the back, you pulled out your wand and started twirling it.

You watched as Amy started interrogating Kathryn and you smiled at her momma bear ways. The doors closed and the food started appearing on the platters in front of you. Steak with assorted greens and sides. You grabbed a plate and started piling everything on.

“But what if-?” You heard someone say before they made a groaning noise. You glanced up from your plate and say a skinny brunette boy standing in front of you. You furrowed your eyebrows not recognizing him.

“Uh hi I’m Ethan” he said sticking hand out to you. You glanced at it before shrugging and shaking his hand.

“Y/N…” You said glancing behind the nervous boy. Amy and Kathryn were staring at the two of you with wide eyes and mouths slightly opened.

“We’re in the same year and you always eat alone so I thought ‘hey why not invite them to eat with my friends and I and-” you cut him off by standing up.

“I’d love to eat with you and your friends” You said giving him a warm smile. Grabbing your plate and goblet you followed him down the table and stopped where four Gryffindor boys were staring at you then at Ethan.

“Guys this is Y/N. Y/N this is Mark, Tyler, Wade, and Bob” Ethan said pointing to each of the boys.

Yeah I know that Ethan is a bit younger then the other guys but shhhh

You waved at them and sat down next to Ethan, Mark on your left. The other boys sitting across from you three.

You couldn’t help but notice the permanent blush on Ethan’s face and the looks everyone was shooting him. You talked with the other boys some but mainly talked to Ethan. You learned he was allergic to peanuts when your whole section of the table didn’t have a single thing with peanuts in it. The house elf’s being mindful to the maximum.

“Uh I think I’m going to go” Bob said as he dragged Wade with him. Tyler and Mark made eye contact and they both scurried off. You looked at Ethan confused and his face was becoming redder.

“What’s up with them?” You asked twirling your wand again. Ethan shrugged still not looking at you.

  • Me, Re-reading Assignment Today: OH. GOD. NO. THE. LONG. S.

anonymous asked:

Raleigh introducing Chuck to the Hobbit/Lord of the Rings. That is all. -Kai

Oh my God Kai why would you do this to me because HOLY SHIT.

I just wrote that whole sentence without proper punctuation. That’s how excited I am.

Because Chuck always gives Raleigh so much shit about his reading thing. And Raleigh is always irritated because, thanks to a wee bit of brain damage from piloting solo twice and SURVIVING A DIP INTO ANOTHER DIMENSION CHUCK FOR FUCK’S SAKE I KNOW I’M READING AT THE SPEED OF SMELL IT WAS FUNNY THE FIRST TIME OKAY?

But Chuck’s idea of reading is engineering texts and jaeger schematics and solar punk (because Mako is always right, and Mako is convinced that some of the rebuilding should focus on harnessing the power of Green), and he consumes them like Max shotgunning down a raw steak, where Raleigh is strictly a fiction kind of guy. Well, fiction and World War II.

But that was sort of how he came by his love for Lord of the Rings. He knew Tolkien wasn’t writing about the war, per se, but… it had that feel to it. He’d just always loved the hobbits and the creeping eeriness of the ring wraiths and the sweeping breadth of the story and the idea that stepping outside the front door is such a dangerous thing. It had been for him, anyway. He and Yancy had joined the PPDC and… everything else followed as way follows onto way.

So when he found out that Tendo had kept all of the PPDC’s old “library” books in storage, including all of Tolkien’s books that he and Yance had traded back and forth years ago, he did a pre-emptive raid of the taped up boxes and was all the way through The Hobbit (it only took him three weeks, and no, he didn’t at all think about how he used to power through it in just a couple of days as a kid) and now is just starting The Fellowship of the Ring, a cup of herbal tea steaming away at his elbow, when Chuck happens.

The big jerk doesn’t start in immediately. Oh, no. He has to go to the kitchen for his own cup of tea and a frankly ridiculously large slice of cake first. Then, he plants his unpredictable ginger ass right across from Raleigh and starts.

“Whatcha readin?”

Sighing, Raleigh resigns himself to not getting another word read until Chuck’s done having his fun. “Yes, it’s a really long book, and yes, I’ll still be reading it two weeks from now, so get it out of your system.”


He raises an eyebrow, and Chuck has the good grace to look a bit abashed.

“Yeah, alright. Might have earned that one.”

Grumbling, Raleigh fiddles with the handle on his mug. “Might?”

“Only so much crow I’m willing to eat, mate.” The flash of dimple says no crow at all will be eaten. “Seriously, what’s the drama?”

“Ya know, Chuck?” He carefully, deliberately marks the page and closes the book. “It might be funny to you to read an entire manual on mechatronics over lunch while I struggle through a chapter all damn day, but it’s not like I can do anything about it. I have fucking brain damage, okay? I’m lucky I can still read at all. So spare me your amusement at my fucking predicament, okay?”

He wants to say more, but the expression on Chuck’s face stops him. The kid looks… mortified. In fact, if he isn’t mistaken, the brat is actively sweating.


“Uh.” Chuck swallows hard. “Brain damage?”


More sweating. “You… uh… never said anything about brain damage.”

He rolls his eyes. “Because it’s such an easy topic to talk about.”

“Well, fuck, mate, how the fuck was I supposed to know, then?” Still acting weird, the kid scrubs a hand up over his face. “Jesus, I feel like a right wanker now.”

He starts to snark back, then takes a good, long look at the kid. Chuck looks embarrassed and miserable. As if months of giving Raleigh shit about reading slow, about his lack of an attention span, about his occasional pause during a conversation to remember what the hell he was talking about, are suddenly replaying in his mind in a different light.

So, they sit in silence for long enough that Raleigh reopens his book and tries to recatch the magic. It’s not easy. Tolkien is a favorite, but the language is dense, and it’s hard enough to focus on the words when he’s alone. With Chuck looking like he’s forgotten to feed Max for a week, it’s nigh impossible.

Eventually, when Raleigh has managed to read and absorb a whole sentence, Chuck clears his throat.

“So… what’s it about, eh?”

He raises an eyebrow. Still looking miserably sheepish, Chuck shrugs.

“Must be a goddamn good book for you to know how long it’ll take you to get through it and still… want to.”

His eyes narrow. “Uh-huh.” But the kid doesn’t budge, so he sighs and looks down at where his finger is marking his current spot. “Okay. Uh… hobbits, mostly. And elves and dwarves. Some warriors and sorcerors.” Grinning a bit, he shoots the kid a wry look. “And a ring that everyone seems to want but the poor kid that has to carry it.”

Chuck’s eyebrows go up. “Well, now I have to hear the whole thing.”

To his embarrassment, Raleigh finds himself sputtering. “Uh… hear it? I… uh… don’t think… I mean, it’s on the server, so… you can–”

“Jesus, mate, just read a few paragraphs. Maybe I’ll fucking hate it and we’ll both get out of this without a goddamn fistfight, yeah?”

He snorts, surprised and fairly sure he should be annoyed, then looks down at the marked page. “As slow as I read, you’ll probably just get bored as hell and sneak out while I’m trying to get through the chapter title.”

“Oi, just fucking read it, mate.”

“I’m already a chapter in….”

“So, not so far in that you can’t start over.”

He eyes the kid, but for all that the big jerk can be a real shit, Chuck seems to be on the up and up this time. So, hesitant and almost positive that this is a terrible idea because he has the devil’s own time focusing these days, Raleigh leaves the bookmark in place and flips back to the start of the book.

Clears his throat.

Fiddles with the page.

Clears his throat again.

“Mate, just… read it.”

“Yeah, yeah.” He debates another moment, then just… tries the damn thing. “Prologue: Concerning Hobbits.”


“Oi, mate, can you pause a sec? I’ve gotta piss like a racehorse, and I don’t wanna miss anything.”

Blinking, Raleigh looks up from the book and realizes that the mess hall is empty except for him and Chuck and he’s been reading – READING! – for hours without losing his place even once. And he’s read just fine, at a perfectly normal speed. And he actually knows what he’s reading. It isn’t just word salad.


“Make it quick. My eyes are floating.”

“Just… I haven’t read like that since… fuck, since before Knifehead.”

Chuck grins, the dimple carving deep, and Raleigh is surprised by the full-on excitement on the kid’s face. “Yeah? That’s good, right?”

“I guess.” A laugh huffs out of him. “I just… maybe it’s reading out loud? Makes me focus in a different way, maybe?”

To his surprise, the kid’s face brightens further. “Yeah? Well, not gonna lie, mate, but I rather wanna hear the rest, so… reckon it’s a good thing, yeah?”

“You seriously wanna sit around listening to me read when you can read the damn thing yourself? Probably in half the time?”

And though the kid shifts from foot to foot, clearly about to piss himself, he shrugs. “Fast is for textbooks and schematics. I rather like you taking time with this one.” Another shift. “And your voice is nice, yeah?”

His eyes widen, but Chuck escapes to take a leak before he can ask for clarification. He looks at the book, where the bookmark has moved far past where he was originally, almost as if he’s been reading at his old pace.

Shaking his head, he looks at his empty cup of tea next and decides he’ll need another one because his throat is dry from all the reading.

All the reading. Jesus, he’s been just reading along like it was nothing.

And Chuck really seems to enjoy the story thus far, which he hadn’t expected but maybe should have.

He abruptly decides to make Chuck another cup of tea, too. Kid deserves it, if for no other reason than being willing to sit and listen so Raleigh has to read aloud, which is apparently the only way he can read like a normal human adult these days.

And when Chuck comes back, surprised but pleased by the fresh, steaming cup of Earl Grey, Raleigh just picks the book back up and starts back in, reading like he’s never even heard of brain damage. It becomes a regular thing to see the pair of them seated together here and there around the ‘dome, bent over first Fellowship of the Ring, then The Two Towers, then Return of the King.

Then The Hobbit.

Eventually, long after they start falling asleep in a pile in one bunk or the other but not too long after they kiss for the first time almost as an accident when Raleigh sees Chuck to the door in the wee hours of the morning after waking up spooning each other, The Silmarillion makes an appearance.

Halfway through that, they give up any pretense of spending any time apart.

It’s so much easier after that.

on top of everything else i got to experience today, i also lost the second of my two exy button pins. today’s officially the worst day i’ve had in college so far

Weekly Reading List #31

Hello there!

How are you all doing? I’m late again, I know… I had to work on the weekend and I can tell you it sucks… Especially if it’s every second weekend you need to work. Then there is no much time to do the things you love and you gain a big lack of sleep, but who wants to complain about that. So, now here’s my Weekly Reading List and soon I’m gonna put it into my ‘Masterlist’ I linked in my bio. Just in case you’re searching for a fan-fic or need something new to read or whatever. I don’t have to work on the next weekend, so I’m thinking about trying to write the very first fic on my own… But maybe it’s gonna take months until I’m satisfied enough to post it. Who knows… By now, have fun with reading this amazing stories! Good Night!

Metaphysick Newsletter: #1

Oi oi, lads, lasses and fella’s with glasses!~ Zaoka aloka here, bringing you the first official newsletter for Metaphysick!

                                             Who Are Metaphysick? 
Metaphysick is an EU based Free Company on Balmung who’s primary focus is Roleplaying. We are a Good aligned group comprised of the former employees of the Sunny Seaside Salvage estate, now under the employ of the mysterious Mr. M. They are committed to the containment, research and subsequent banishment of Voidsent that plague the realm as well as the occasional venture into long forgotten ruins in order to obtain precious artifacts held within.

Our very own Rosamund Hale has been hard at work renovating the old estate, now known as “The Midnight Bastion”. She’s done a great job and here are some screens of the new mansion!

                                                 The Story So Far…
Answering the hails of their old leaders, the former members of the mercenary group known as Jackal and Hide met in their old meeting area, lovingly referred to as the ‘War Room’. It was there they were introduced to the new owner of the estate, an individual who refers to themselves as ‘Mr. M’ and learned of their plans to put together an initiative to combat the otherworldly fiends known as Voidsent. Mr. M tasked the group with one simple trial, to locate and dispatch a pair of Imps that had been causing mischief in the western regions of La Noscea.

Upon arriving at the location the group encountered Clover Fields, whom joined them in combating the puckish fiends and sending them back from whence they came.

A sennight later, Mr. M took it upon himself to contact the group once more, this time bestowing upon them the name of Metaphysick as well as issuing them with a new task. This time they were to locate a Voidsent that had been released inside the estate and to test out Mr. M’s prototype containment device. After a long onerous battle with an odorous pudding, the group were able to successfully trap the foul smelling creature in the containment field and report their success to their benefactor.

With two victories under their belts, Metaphysick were called upon by Torhe Raanu, one of thier own, on behalf of Mr. M. They were to combat a cult that had originated within Ishgard. Originally thought to be nothing more than a minor nuisance with how ineffectual they had been, though through the acquisition of certain tomes containing forbidden rituals they had become elevated as to the threat they posed. The group were carried to the frozen wastes of Coerthas where they were to deal with the results of a botched summon. Through the use of a sceptre designed to bring down a powerful levin bolt upon the malformed gelatenous monstrocities that had been spawned through the summon, metaphysick survived the encounter with mostly minor injuries, though one of their number, Kheja’a Akhabila was caught in the blast and was promptly taken back to the Midnight Bastion in order to make his recovery.

It’s been an exciting month for all of us here at the FC, from the birth of a new concept to the remodelling of our old estate and we look forward to what the future brings us here at META. Thank you for reading and until next time, have fun n’ take care!

anonymous asked:

How much of the novel does the anime cover? I plan on reading the novel anyways but I am curious to know the difference between the content. Would there even be enough content to make a second season possibly?

Thanks for the question. The novel structure is different from the anime and has other focus. Also the last chapters are not included in the anime. (Sorry so hard to write without spoilers!) This year another novel ‘violet evergaden gaiden’ was published. I assume they will extend the main storyline and do more episodes when a second seasons comes, than originally extracted from the novels. I’m really curious what the movie in 2020 (when Olympics are in Japan) will be about…the trailer just shows flashbacks from the anime until now. Hope this kind of helped! Have fun while reading :]

Curious Minds, returning (hopefully) in May!

“So, what’s going on with you and Harry?” Anya asked after a while, sitting across from me as she handed me the fliers and free drink cards, while I clipped them together.

I almost choked on my saliva at her comment. “Me and – me and Harry?” I spluttered out. “Oh god, please. He’s just – he’s an idiot, that’s what he is.”

anonymous asked:

I'm curious as to your thoughts on Frankenstein by Mary Shelley? As an ambitious writer, Victor's dedication reaches me on a personal level. I'm wondering about your thoughts?

Not sure I understand what you’re asking here. I don’t really advocate grave-robbing or corpse mutilation as a creative pursuit but I can definitely sympathize with Victor on a certain level because I too have spent months working on something only to look at the finished product and be physically revolted.

anonymous asked:

Can you write one where you are going to the beach with friends but the car is packed and you have to sit on calvins lap and you give him a boner and he gets embarrassed, plz..

This one is going to be short so hopefully I will get to write another after. Be sure to let me know what you guys think and if you enjoy this content or not. Sorry again for not posting. Hopefully this will make up a little bit. I don’t know if I will post again later today. I have to leave for work at 5:30AM and won’t finish until at least 7:30/8:00PM. Anyway! Have fun reading!

LeafyIsHere Fanfiction - Seating Arrangements

Six people, five seats. Who planned this out? Some friends had invited you to go to the beach with them and you quickly agreed. It has been reasonably hot out and a beach day was just what you needed. They claimed there would be enough room in the car and that they would pick you up on their way. There was supposed to be enough room to seat six comfortably. However, they failed to realize how much stuff they wanted to bring and thus miscalculated on seating.

You were the last person they were picking up and when you opened the door to the car, you simply laughed at the situation. You were wearing a cute swim suit that showed off your best features with a short coverup. Looking at the three people sitting in the back, you notice two of them are holding various things. “So, where am I supposed to fit, guys?” You ask, looking to see Calvin is the only person not holding something. You friend driving rolls down the window and says, “Just sit on Calvin’s lap, we aren’t going too far.” You look to Calvin and he simply shrugs saying, “I tried to get them to just let me drive another car but they insisted.”

Your friends have been trying to get the two of you together for some time now. This situation was putting you straight into their hands. You and Calvin had chatted a few times before and even discussed going out once or twice but it never quite worked out with timing. Climbing in the car to sit on his lap, you hesitantly sit down. Looking to him, you ask, “Are you okay? I can just get someone to drop me off if we need to.” Before anyone can respond, your friend takes off driving down the street. Almost falling on the floor of the car, Calvin is quick to pull you back up and hold you in place.

“Sorry! Didn’t realize you weren’t ready to go!” your friend says smirking. Everyone is chatting throughout the drive and the conversation is about what everyone has been up to. Every once in awhile, a song will come on and a couple of your friends will sing along to it, terribly. Driving on a bumpy road for about twenty minutes, you quickly notice Calvin go silent behind you, saying less and less.

You turn your head to notice his head is down with his hand over his face, as if trying to keep some sort of composure. Your friends are deep in conversation as you ask him, “Hey, you okay?” Just then your friend drives over what felt like a massive pothole. His hands immediately grip either side of your waist to hold you firmly in place as he whispers in your ear saying, “Don’t fucking move.” You think for a couple minutes before everything finally makes sense in your mind. You simply start giggling and try to restrain your laughter by saying, “Really, Calvin?” He sighs behind you and simply complains by saying, “Shut up.”

Just when everyone sees the entry gate, Calvin’s face lights up and he says, “Maybe God is alive.” Driving over one last pothole to seal the deal, your friend smirks and Calvin’s breathing hitches and you can feel him tense underneath you. Your clad outfit and behind constantly rubbing against all the right places was too much for him to handle. He quickly says, “Nope, definitely dead.” You laugh at his comment, which certainly doesn’t help the situation. He rests his head on the back of your shoulder to try to hide his embarrassment. Under his breath, he quietly says, “fuck me.”

After finally parking, everyone quickly exists, still unaware of the situation the two of you are now in. As to avoid embarrassing him in front of everyone, you wait until everyone is out of the car before leaving. Just before walking to where everyone is on the beach, you decide to tease him a bit and ask, “Are you going to be okay?” A bit annoyed, but still not able to look you in the eyes, he says, “Unless you intend on helping out with this mess that’s technically your fault, you might not want to stick around.” You laugh and wave him goodbye, “Have fun!” Still laughing at the situation when you reach your friends, they look suspiciously at you before asking, “Where’s Calvin?” Smirking you simply say, “He needed to take care of something, he should be out soon.”

Be sure to let me know what you guys think and if you enjoyed. I wasn’t going to write another one, but I don’t really want to end my blog with a boner fic lmao so I’m going to write another one. I hope you guys are having a great day! 100 Notes and I’ll wear a bikini  ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Imagine: Harry left you for someone else, and months later the lads and him see you at the club. Completely different.

Its been five months since Harry Styles, my three year boyfriend, left me for some blonde bitch. Honestly, at first I was devastated. Until my best friend, Amanda introduced me to the party life.

I was never a party girl. I was that girl that sat in the silence reading a book or studying to become a lawyer. If anything, I was a nerd and a dork. I hated my life but I couldn’t do anything about it. I never wanted to become a lawyer, read books, nothing. My parents never really asked me what I wanted to do with my life and assumed that I wanted to do everything they did. Oh they were so wrong.

Keep reading
