Me, still surprised that SM is taking their time to drop NCT’s teasers, despite NCT not already coming back yet with the endless rumors, their producer announcing an album that’s on its way, 29 hairstyle changes and a new song being performed on one of the largest stages:
***After the two previous fic posts got so much love from you, and since the holidays are coming which probably means a ton of time to read, here is the 3rd edition of my Malec fanfic recommendations.

And now, have fun reading!***
As the goalie for the New York City Blazing Angels, Alec
Lightwood thinks he’s finally found the team he can go all the way to
the championship cup with. Then his agent and financial advisor are
arrested for stealing their clients’ money, and Alec is forced to take
on a side job doing endorsement deals, plus find a way to trust his new
Alec hates Magnus the first time he sets eyes on him.
Magnus hates Alec more.
But they’re going to have to find some way to work together if Alec is going to make it to the championship.
Alec Lightwood had a good life in Columbus, Ohio. He was
growing strong as a lawyer in his mother’s law firm and achieving his
dream-career step by step. He had a good life, comfortable and steady,
if not a little boring.
So, when headhunter Magnus Bane offered
him an interview at the prestigious IDRIS LLP in New York, Alec decided
that it couldn’t hurt to take a look. After all, one didn’t turn down
IDRIS LLP off the hat, even if they weren’t really interested.
did he know that New York offered much more than a job in a bigger
company. The city was fast, insanely alive, but most of all, it had
Magnus. And Magnus changed everything.
Alec only likes getting up at four in the morning to get to the
hospital because he has always dreamed of becoming a doctor and because
he finds a childish excitement in besting Dr. Glitter and winning a
battle in their little war for his favorite parking spot.
It has nothing to do with Magnus’ incorrigible, shameless, incessant flirting. Nothing.
Magnus is a morning person, Alec not so much. When Magnus tries to wake
Alec gently so that he isn’t late for an important meeting at the
Institute, Alec decides he wants to stay in bed and have his boyfriend
wake him up properly.
Alec heads to Magnus’ apartment after a hunt, but realizes when he gets
there 1) it is the middle of the night 2) Magnus is not expecting him
and 3) he has never spent the night before. Alec begins to panic but
Magnus settles his fears.
A murder is committed in Alec Lightwood’s jurisdiction that is achingly
familiar. A nine year old boy is found on a jogging trail in Central
Park,and Alec can’t help but think of Max, his little brother who’d been
murdered years earlier. During the course of the investigation, Alec
discovered that Max’s murder was just the first of a string that has
lasted twelve years. In addition to this very personal and draining
investigation, Alec must deal with one of Magnus’s ex-lovers who decides
he wants Magnus back. He only has to go through Alec.
Alec and Magnus had an amazing night together, despite
the alcohol, and Alec isn’t ready for their time together to end. It’s
just hard to make things work when they both have responsibilities
keeping them apart.
(Wherein there is sibling bonding and more dates and not-secret secrets about Alec come to light.)
Instead, Alec feels the slipperiness of the oil as it pools at the
bottom of his spine; sleek, liquid warmth that cascades down the small
canyons of his skin, settling into the defined dips and shadowy hollows
of Alec’s muscles. Magnus brushes the slight calluses on his palms
through the glossy sheen, massaging the persistent tension that still
lingers stubbornly, using the force of his weight to press Alec into the
sponginess of the mattress. And the breath stutters out of Alec’s
lungs, suffocating him with molten heat and a ferocious desire to have
Magnus pin him down hard and deliberate into the bed and fuck him
“I don’t understand why you can’t just tell me.” “Because
they’re right about one thing”, Isabelle’s eyes were sad when they met
his. “Knowledge is a big part of being powerful. Without memory of the
Angel’s blood there’s nothing left but a mundane.”
Alec loses his memory in an accident and everyone keeps being annoyingly vague with him when he tries to get his memories back.
The gang goes on a road trip, Alec is easily distracted, and his and
Magnus’s sex life is nowhere near as private as they think it is. Set at
some point in the distant future where Valentine is no longer an issue,
Alec and Lydia are running the Institute together, and Simon’s sunlight
problem has been resolved.
It’s been a month since Alec was kidnapped and tortured by vampires. A
month since starting a new and exciting relationship with Magnus Bane
and things are actually going pretty well, considering all they have to
deal with. Enter Camille Belcourt.
He can’t believe, doesn’t want to believe, that he
canceled his wedding, kissed Magnus in front of the entire Clave, all
for nothing. It can’t have been for nothing. He’s been keeping Magnus at
more than arm’s length, ignoring his calls and his presence around the
Institute. Alec knows that Magnus is only lending his services to help
find Jace, because it’s important to Alec. Alec knows he’s being too
careful. He knows that relationships aren’t set in stone. He knows that
either of them could die at any moment. But he can’t imagine the hurt
that Magnus would feel if they started something and Alec were to die.
He can’t be the reason for Magnus’s pain.
“Someone’s impatient,” Alec hums, evidently pleased at his own
ability to take his boyfriend apart, piece by piece, until all he knows, thinks, breathes, is Alec.“You
have been teasing me for ages, darling,” Magnus retorts, eyes drinking
up that glorious, lean body looming over him, coated in a thin sheen of
sweat that makes every dip and hollow of Alec’s body scream out for
Magnus’ tongue. “I, unfortunately, do not have the gift of a stamina
His forehead was scrunched in concentration and Alec was reminded
that, unlike himself, Magnus didn’t have a stamina rune to protect him
from exhaustion. He didn’t seem too affected, though, and his attacks
were only getting stronger, as if he was getting angrier and angrier
every second the vile creatures spent ruining their night.
moved in sync, finding a perfect rhythm in each other’s movements,
flowing gracefully around one another in a deadly dance of combat.
Prince Harry's Q&A with the kids from Joshua House Children Centre in Guyana
What is it like to live in a palace all your life?
You know what, weirdly, my house is smaller than this room.
That’s your house... the palace?
Yes, what’s it like to live in a palace?
What’s it like to live in a palace? It’s... safe because you have security.
What about fun? Do you get to do anything fun?
Yeah, lots of fun things. There’s lots of fun things in London.
What is the food like?
I cook for myself—
What about the throne?
Okay, so you’re talking about Buckingham Palace. Okay, Buckingham Palace... I don’t get to spend much time there, sadly. But the Queen spends quite a lot of time there and the food is delicious. And there’s a couple of thrones in there from years and years and years ago that people get to have a look at-
Is it historical?
It’s very historical - of course it is. It’s one of our greatest landmarks.
How many maids do they have there?
Ooohh, probably not as many as you think. [everyone laughs] I don’t know what you think… have you seen Windsor Castle? Have you seen the castle?
In movies… that place is awesome. It’s amazing. It’s a really, really, really big castle. And then you have planes flying over it all the time-
So how do you feel ruling the country, being a prince?
Firstly, I definitely don’t rule the country. [everyone laughs] What’s it like being a prince? Uummm, good and bad. There’s lots of privileges, of course, that you get from when you’re born. But then with privilege comes a lot of responsibility.
[says something about responsibility] You can take the good with the bad.
Exactly, you gotta take the good with the bad. And being a prince means you gotta enhance all the positivity and try and encourage people to see the good stuff about life, yeah? How's that - is that a good answer?
Yes. Thank you very much.
No problem... good questions there. You almost called me out!
i laughed so much at these three asks being one after the other BUT IM SO GLAD WE ALL AGREE THAT GUAN SHAN’S HAIR IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING
i love how it looks all slicked back like that, it really gives him a more mature and confident look, but im also so happy that he still has his undercut!!!! i know some people would like to see him with longer hair, but i feel like the undercut is such a characteristic part of his design that i would have been really sad to see it gone, but thankfully it’s still there!!
on another note, all i can imagine right now is he tian helping guan shan styling his hair by running his own fingers through it, but somehow it always ends up with he tian tagging at it slightly to raise guan shan’s head so he can kiss him, and by the time they pull back from each other guan shan’s hair has become a mess all over again
idk why but I wanted to take a moment to appreciate this scene. This make me feel like the animators really instilled what this moment meant for All Might when he’s told this information.
All Might the top hero, once quirkless himself, has such a careful and drawn out tense reaction to this. And there’s Izuku, laying everything he has to the person he admires most. All Might, seeing this young kid who wants nothing more than to be hero just like him, knowing all too much what it means to hear this declaration, actually taking down his guard enough to have his true form revealed. He sees this kid, who wants to enter a harsh world without a power of his own and because he knows all this, he has to say the most unkind truth and it hurts because you know what he’s saying isn’t wrong. And all he can see is this small scrawny kid wanting to be apart of a world he himself feels he wouldn’t have been able to get as far as he has without One For All. It conveys such a quiet heartbreak underneath your unaware of when you first see it.
Revisiting this after catching up with the manga, it just makes me feel like so much care was taken into the production for this anime and Horikoshi must have had so much input for scenes like this, it just makes it worth rewatching just to feel those quietly charged moments.
Also love how they keep the Horikoshi side-face view style where you actually see mouths having separate parts instead of the usual simplistic triangle-mouth flaps:

Here in the attic is where I conducted my experiments. Only upon myself, just to make it clear. Nothing nefarious. No, certainly nothing nefarious.

Don’t look at me that way.
I had replaced many of my organs with mechanical or computerized devices. Other than occasional minor upkeep, everything was working fine. Just fine. I was an expert at this sort of thing, if I could be perfectly frank.
I was no murderer. I had no graves robbed.
[ … ]
You clatter your fleshy metal fingers on the floor in front of me in… in impatience? In annoyance? I still don’t understand you. If you’d disconnect me, I could… Fine, fine.
I know now that I shouldn’t have given my heart an AI.
By all of my calculations, giving any of my organs an artificial intelligence would have solved several issues. No more maintenance - they could sort themselves out. Self-regulation, self-healing, self-improving. Nothing pointed towards… this. Towards you.
[ clickclickclickclick ]
How? How could I have seen this coming, my… giving birth to you?
[ clack clickclick clack ]
You were very careful when you cut yourself out. Thank you for that.

Ages ago, before all of this, before I even thought of becoming the mad scientist that I apparently am, I spent my time outdoors, under the open sore of the sky, thinking of an impossible family. In my daydreams, my wife and I would sit on the porch holding hands and sipping iced tea, as our son and daughter played catch out in the yard. I would imagine all of the laughter.
[ SCREEEE clickclack SCREEEEEEE ]
Yes, son, yes. Maybe like that. It could never have happened anyway. I married my machines.
