Beautiful Tragedy by MagicHappenx
When Magnus come to live with the Lightwoods due to issues at home, the family is incredibly happy to have him. Well, everyone except Alec. Abandonment issues, jealousy and the fact that he believes sweet and kind-hearted Magnus will replace him, causes Alec to act out. No matter what Magnus does, he can't seem to get through to Alec, but when tragedy strikes, both men will realize just how strong, forgiving and resilient both of them can be.
I really enjoyed this story. There were moments when I wanted to scream at Alec for being such an asshole, but I also really enjoyed the family dynamic between Magnus and the other Lightwoods. This is definitely a slow burn, so grab a blanket, some hot cocoa and settle in. 😃 ☕️
If you're in the mood for an engrossing read that's pretty heavy on the angst, but is well-balanced with heartwarming fluff, Beautiful Tragedy is for you!
