Cassandra Clare posts Alec and Magnus’ first kiss scene

Cassandra Clare shares Alec and Magnus' first kiss.

Cassandra Clare has come through on her promise.

Fans voted and elected to have Clare share a Magnus and Alec hookup scene in “City of Ashes” also known as ‘how Alec got all those hickeys’ when fans got Clare to 30,000 Twitter followers.

Without further ado, here it is:

It was printed on thin paper, nearly parchment, in a thin, elegant, spidery hand. It announced a gathering at the humble home of Magnus the Magnificent Warlock, and promised attendees “a rapturous evening of delights beyond your wildest imaginings.” —City of Bones

Standing in the stairwell of Magnus’ home, Alec stared at the name written under the buzzer on the wall. BANE. The name didn’t really seem to suit Magnus, he thought, not now that he knew him. If you could really be said to know someone when you’d attended one of their parties, once, and then they’d saved your life later but hadn’t really hung around to be thanked. But the name Magnus Bane made him think of a towering sort of figure, with huge shoulders and formal purple warlock’s robes, calling down fire and lightning. Not Magnus himself, who was more of a cross between a panther and a demented elf.

Alec took a deep breath and let it out. Well, he’d come this far; he might as well go on. The bare lightbulb hanging overhead cast sweeping shadows as he reached forward and pressed the buzzer.

A moment later a voice echoed through the stairwell. “WHO CALLS UPON THE HIGH WARLOCK?”

“Er,” Alec said. “It’s me. I mean, Alec. Alec Lightwood.”

Head over to Clare’s official website to finish the scene.

  1. Loved it! Clare definitely needs to put more “dirty sexy Malec” scenes in the up coming books.

  2. Ooooooh, going to be sexy.

  3. Finally a book I have found with a gay relationship, I wish others would include it. But sadly the gay population is unwelcome by a lot, either way I love it 🙂 she should have included it in the books.

  4. I actually love this scene soo much, I have it memorized. I wish it was in the book, and hope its in the movie!!
