Main Premise: A short story about how infatuated Magnus is with Alec. It’s Alec’s birthday and Magnus doesn’t know what to get him for a present. Izzie shows up and he puts a spell on her whip to help protect her. She gives Magnus her phone number so they can reach each other as needed. Ms. Connor has Magnus on retainer of sorts to handle a mermaid problem. The demon she had him summon turns out to not be needed. We see the necklace that he gave Camille a few stories ago that then made it’s way to Anna Lightwood; Izzie is wearing it when she arrives. We hear the story of how Alec and Magnus first kissed. And Alec shows up at the end to spend part of his 18th birthday with Magnus.
Important Things to Remember for Later: Depends on when in the course of the MI/ID series you are reading these. I don’t think there’s really anything important per se – this is just more background and more filler for gaps in time that aren’t otherwise important.
