At the beginning of their relationship, Magnus is definitely the more dominant one. He will definitely take things slow for Alec since this is his first real relationship but, essentially, he is the more dominant one. The longer that Magnus and Alec are together, however, Alec does come out of his shell more and more and now both Magnus and Alec are.
Who’s the cuddler:
This is Magnus 100%! He will always seek Alec out at home or at the institute and, even though he’s not one for PDA, Alec no longer has the heart to stop him.
Who’s the big spoon/little spoon:
They are both the big and little spoon! It really depends on the day and if one of them is feeling down. Whenever Magnus has nightmares of or is thinking about his past, he will be the little spoon. Whenever Alec is down and thinking about Max or when running the institute gets to be too much for him, he is the little spoon.
What’s their favorite non-sexual activity:
They are both unapologetic mockers. They love to rent whatever new movies have come out and mock them for days if they’re really bad! Also, Magnus loves to play the video game ‘Dragon Age: Inquisition’ because he low-key has a crush on Dorian Pavus.
Who uses all the hot water:
It’s always Alec. After a stressful day when maiming the punching bag does nothing, Alec will take long showers and use that time to think over everything.
Most trivial thing they fight over:
Magnus’… “organizational skills”. Alec is constantly ready to pull out his hair because what Magnus calls “organized chaos” is in fact just chaos.
Who does most of the cleaning:
Alec will spend a lot of time trying to control the “organized chaos” or Magnus’ home.
What has a season pass on their dvr/Who controls the Netflix queue:
They both do. They both love keeping up with Game of Thrones and, surprisingly, a bunch of reality tv shows. Again, they are both unapologetic mockers.
Who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working:
Neither do. Whenever the heat is not working Magnus will just use his magic to start a fire in the fireplace.
Who leaves their stuff around:
It’s always Magnus.
Who remembers to buy the milk:
Alec will always remember to buy the milk, especially when Magnus finishes the last of the milk and leaves the empty carton in the fridge.
Who remembers anniversaries:
They both do.
Who cooks normally:
Both of them! Magnus will prepare dishes and recipes that he has learned from all over the world. Alec will cook some dishes that he learned from his mom’s side of the family.
How often do they fight:
They don’t really fight. They do have a few trivial arguments here and there.
What do they do when they’re away from each other:
After a couple months of dating, Alec got into the habit of stealing random scarves from Magnus’ wardrobe and wearing them when he has to be separated from Magnus for long periods of time. He will never admit this to anyone, least of all Magnus or Izzy, but having something of Magnus’ is really comforting to him.
Magnus will constantly text Alec whenever he has to deal with business at the institute, asking him if he’s almost done or on his way home. He even tried to get him to sext a couple of times.
Nicknames for each other:
Magnus will call Alec ‘Cintaku’ and when they are alone, Alec will call Magnus either ‘Mags’ or ‘Ma Belle”.
Who is more likely to pay for dinner:
They hardly eat out but when they do, Magnus is the one who usually pays.
Who steals the covers at night:
Alec will steal the covers at night! He is always really cold! But Magnus doesn’t mind because this gives him a chance to cuddle Alec even more!
What would they get each other for gifts:
Alec will buy Magnus numerous rings and bracelets because he knows his boyfriend loves jewelry. Additionally, Alec will constantly buy new toys for Chairman Meow because it makes Magnus happy. Also, Alec kind of adores Chairman Meow.
Magnus is constantly finding/ buying books for Alec on every topic possible because he knows how much Alec loves to read.
Who kissed who first:
Alec kissed Magnus first!!
Who made the first move:
Alec kissed Magnus first but Magnus is the one who set up their first date!
Who remembers things:
They both remember things like anniversaries and birthdays. When it comes to things like remembering to eat or sleep, however, Alec will always forget to do these so Magnus is constantly reminding him to take care of himself.
Who started the relationship:
It was both of them!!
Who cusses more:
That would be Magnus. He cusses all the time but it is always in a different language. Mostly Indonesian.
What would they do if the other one was hurt:
Alec would go out of his mind with worry. He would not leave Magnus’ side for anything and he would make sure that Magnus had everything he needed.
Magnus would be worried sick about Alec and he would tend to him and his injuries but he would not be as calm as Alec. More often than not, he has been known to go on a rampage when Alec is hurt.
Who is the dirty talker:
Magnus is always the one to talk dirty or try new things 😉
After Max died, Magnus would catch Alec watching random anime shows on Netflix. Eventually, Alec told Magnus that he was watching these shows because Max was so into them and he used to always beg Alec to watch them with him. Now, Magnus will gladly sit through hours of anime just so Alec has someone to watch these shows with.
