Pool Party fic: Beyond the Perimeters, Part One (Shadowhunters)

Title: Beyond the Perimeters, Part One
Characters: Alec Lightwood/Magnus Bane
Word Count: 1656
Rating: PG-13 for this part; the next part will be NC-17
Warnings: Nothing you haven't seen before in slash fiction; spoilers for the first season of the TV show
Disclaimer: I don't own the show, the characters, nor the books; the only thing I make from my scribblings is words!
Beta: Sadly, unbeta'd. Tell me if anything is glaringly incorrect!
Summary Alec and Magnus go on a first date and then head back to the warlock's home...
Author’s Notes: This is my first foray into the Shadowhunters fandom; I have also read the first four Mortal Instruments books, but I am using the TV show canon for this relationship, and the story takes place soon after the almost-wedding between Alec & Lydia, and refers to that briefly. Part Two is – hopefully – to follow within the next few weeks, as long as I can find time to write! Also written for the 1_million_words Pool Party for July 2016!

This fic can also be read here on AO3

*bites lip nervously* I had to put this part in now so it counts for July! I hope your own Pool Party creation has gone well!
