and it's for you parabatai


TMI Appreciation Week:  Day Four | Favorite Platonic Relationship; Clary Fairchild & Simon Lewis and Jace Herondale & Alec Lightwood

“In all the years I’ve known him, there’s always been exactly one place Simon wanted to be, and he’s always fought like hell to make sure he got there and stayed there.”
“Where’s that?”
“Wherever you were.” 

“I did not make a pie, for three reasons. One, because I do not have any pie ingredients. Two, because I don’t actually know how to make a pie.”
“And three?”
“Because I am not your bitch.”

  • Cristina: Ah yes, a travel year in L.A. What could possibly go wrong?
  • Emma: Help me solve the case of finding the bastard who murdered my parents!
  • Jules: Emma and I are madly in love with each other and have had sex twice. We're also Parabatai so it's also illegal.

  • Simon: i know, right
  • Alec: you've just been unfriended, unfollowed, blocked, ignored, my mum's calling your mum and you're not being invited to me teen queen sweet sixteen summer beach bash birthday party
ah so

I spend too much time looking at soulmate au prompts and love applying them to malec etc, butt since parabatai are soulmates then you’d have to have romantic and platonic soulmates. so shadowhunters (or future shadowhunters) have TWO names but they don’t know what’s which. so just imagine Simon having “Clary” and “Raphael” on his wrists and being so confused because his mundane friends only have one or no names and what?? is he polyamorous? Anyways, he’s really hoping that Clary is his romantic soulmate - but she has two names as well (”Simon” and “Jace”) so surely it can’t be a poly relationship because they have different names? Anyway, Alec has “Jace” and “Magnus” on his wrists and he always has to hide them because he doesn’t want to - no he can’t - be outed. And then later on in a mission, he realises who Magnus is and he’s just like “fuck.” because by now he’s parabatai with Jace and oh my god a warlock?? And just think of poor Magnus who’s had to wait hundreds of years for “Alec” and knowing that he’s going to be 18 when he’s born and that he’s still going to have to wait so many years. Since downworlders don't have parabatai, and shadowhunters don’t all have parabatai, not everyone has two names. So most people actually only have one name, but if you’re aromantic + asexual you won’t have a name, but if you’re a shadowhunter who’s going to get a parabatai you’ll get one name, so until you realise you’re aro/ace you’ll think the name is your romantic soulmate, until you realise you don’t have/want one and its actually your parabatais name. [the dark artifices talk from here on but you can still read for cool au ideas ;)] Anyway, poor Emma has Julian on both of her wrists and so she covers one of them up every day with makeup, and pretends that she’s asexual and she doesn’t have a romantic soulmate. And then we have Ty who just has Kit on his wrist and he thinks maybe he’s aromantic because the internet is really helpful in that way but he’s actually not its just due to the fact that he never leaves the house and he’s actually demi not ace, and he realises this when he finally ends up dating Kit. And Kit has Ty and Livvy on his wrists (I totally headcanon Kit and Livvy as parabatai ok). So his whole life he’s been confused because all his mundane friends only have one name or no name because mundanes don’t have parabatai. So one of the first things he asks when he comes out of the room is about his two names. So Emma explains to him that two names mean that you’ll have both a parabatai and a romantic soulmate. He asks to see hers and she just sprints out of the room. Anyways, much to Kits horror he realises that the names are twins and oh boy being bisexual has never been harder, because who am I going to end up falling in love with?? He does think Tys really pretty tho so its probabl- shit its totally Ty now that he actually thinks about it. 

I want to write this story but I don’t have the patience but I will try okay

  • Cristina: How long have you been in love with Emma?
  • Julian: That's disgusting. I don't even get - why would - I've never been in love with anyone, anywhere. It's none of your - you have - the nerve, the audacity - Emma is my parabatai, technically. And she is terrible, face-wise. And how - how do I know, frankly, that you're not in love with her? Maybe you are. Maybe you're trying to throw me off. Hmm, check and mate.

This was actually the first idea I had when I saw the prompts. Just a cute little piece of self indulgent fluff. :)

August 5 th - A first time -  the first time Alec calls Magnus by a pet name

The first time it happened Magnus was sure that it hadn’t even registered with Alec that he’d said it. Satisfied that his boyfriend felt comfortable enough with him to let some of his guard down, Magnus decided against bringing it to Alec’s attention. Of course, that didn’t mean that a few seconds later Alec himself wouldn’t realize what he’d said and attempt to backtrack over his words.

“I, I mean, I didn’t-” Wide eyes stared up at Magnus’ as the warlock attempted to keep a straight face.

“Darling?” Magnus asked, feigning ignorance.

“I didn’t mean… I mean, I did but-” Alec stumbled over his words and Magnus decided to cut the Shadowhunter a break.

“Babe?” Magnus asked, raising an eyebrow in question. “Of all the pet names you could’ve gone with, I never expected it to be ‘babe’. Babe sounds more like something Jace would use. Although, you are his Parabatai so I don’t suppose its that’s surprising that you’d take after him in that regard.” He said with a grin. Alec groaned, dropping his head in embarrassment and refusing to look at Magnus.

“I didn’t mean to say that out loud.” Alec mumbled and Magnus chuckled.

“Yeah. I can figure that much.” Magnus teased and Alec risked a quick glance up, then just as quickly looking away when he saw the smirk on his boyfriends face.

“I’m never living this down, am I?” Alec asked, surprised when Magnus’ grabbed his hand and pulled him down onto the sofa beside him.

“Why would you expect that?” Magnus asked. “I expect to be called 'babe’ at least three times a day for the rest of our lives.” He said with a smile. “I also wouldn’t be against a 'honey’ or a 'sweetheart’ and maybe even a 'snookums’ if you’re feeling feisty. I’m not picky. Any will do.”

“I hate you.” Alec mumbled and Magnus laughed.

“Somehow I really don’t think so.” Magnus said with a grin.

malikaesthetics  asked:

jalec with #13 please 😘

Alec must’ve heard it wrong. “You’re… what?”

“I’m in love with you, Alec.” Jace said those words, again, with the same calmness as if he didn’t just tip Alec’s world off its axis.

“You’re not. You can’t be.” His parabatai chuckled at that, like he’d known how Alec would react.

“Kiss me.” Jace stepped closer, too close yet still not enough.

Their bond was warm on Alec’s skin, all over his heart, and the fierce, unapologetic love in those mismatched eyes filled it in waves.

This was forbidden, but also everything Alec had ever wanted – he wasn’t letting it go.

  • Malcolm: Are you still in love with Emma?
  • Julian: That's disgusting. I don't even get - why would - I've never been in love with anyone, anywhere. It's none of your - you have - the nerve, the audacity - Emma is my parabatai, technically. And she is terrible, face-wise. And how - how do I know, frankly, that you're not in love with her? Maybe you are. Maybe you're trying to throw me off. Hmm, check and mate.
  • Will Herondale: Tessa Gray? No I don't love Tess-[trips] [hundreds of thousands of photos of Tessa spill out of waistcoat] OH BY THE ANGEL-I'm just-just holding these for Jem. [gathering them up frantically, sweating] You know, my Parabatai, Jem. It's not like I would ever harbour illicit feelings toward my Parabatai's Fiancee. I could never do that to- [thousands of photos of Tessa scatter across the floor] oH BLOOdY HELl, just- I've already told you, I'm holding them for Je- [slips on photos] Look, just- If she is Jem's Fiancee, then I am duty bound to guard her as if she is my own- [he says as he picks up a photo to stare longingly into Tessa's eyes]

  • Me: Honey he brought a condom to a hell dimension I think that answers your question
parabatai business

I already wrote you an email through this- and you responded to which im very grateful because that aboslutely made my day as in I started screaming and mentally yelled in my friends face. she was annoyed at that. Anyway I was thinking about nothing in particular and then I began to think about Shadowhunters. Then my thoughts randomly went to Parabatai. In the end I was wondering if for instance say you were a girl and parabaied with another person, and that other person was in love witg someone else whom had a parabatai whom you were deeply in love with(sorry its terribly confusing) and your parabatai married that someone else. could you marry that other person? That was my question and then my mind went to the fact that you’re not allowed to marry your parabatai, but then wouldnt that mean if you married that deeply in love with person wouldnt the laws you knwow forbid it because if you marry you parabatais parabatai youd be avtually marrying your parabatai because theyre so close their closer than siblings??? Anyway sorry about the complexity of my question it confuses even me. 

I think the question is can you marry your parabatai’s wife/girlfriend/husband/lover? Like could Jace marry Magnus? Yes, you can, though Magnus would have no tolerance for Jace.

Say you have two sets of parabatai warriors, A&B and C&D. A and C could get married, and B & D could as well. I mean, highly unlikely, but not illegal. : )

Shadowhunters AU || parabatai

Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge. Thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God. Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried. The Angel do so to me, and more also, if aught but death part thee and me.
