Shadowhunters

Okay, so I'm started to poke at the Shadowhunter's fandom... I don't know anything about canon at all, so I'm trying to puzzle out what I'm reading...

What happened is that a couple of the authors I've subscribed to on AO3 have started to write Shadowhunter fic... okay, it's the same author with two fic.

KouriArashi -- who I follow for her Teen Wolf fic -- started this with "Live and Learn" which was going to be some short Shadowhunters ficlets but grew legs... http://archiveofourown.org/works/6558262/chapters/15003808

KouriArashi and KarasuYurei are writing "Cathedrals" (http://archiveofourown.org/works/6863743/chapters/15665350) which is a Teen Wolf and Shadowhunters crossover...

Okay, now that I've looked at the web site (https://www.shadowhunterstv.com/) it's a Teen Wolf clone... cute, young people and enough supernatural things to let lots of improbably things happen... at least it's not 20-something's playing teenagers! But there's a honest-to-god canon slash relationship between Shadowhunter Alec Lightwood and High Wizard Magnus Bane set up evidently at the end of season 1... now I have to track this down and watch the episodes!

And, bonus, it's based on a book! "The Shadowhunter Chronicles" by Cassandra Clare... an excellent reason to buy a book!!! (Not that I need much of a reason!)

Book and show review when I have read/watched any of it!

ETA: Meep! *6* books! Way cool!
