honestly, what really makes alec and magnus work so well together, at least for me, is how similar they are. not in the sense of personality or shared life experience; rather, in that they both feel everything so deeply, despite trying to hide behind walls and bury their feelings. whether it be joy or despair, betrayal or anger or love- neither of them know how to feel anything halfway. when they meet, there’s an instant connection, and as they grow closer over the course of the season, they start to bring out that carefully concealed vulnerability in one another, more or less unintentionally. neither of them have had anything in the way of genuine romantic affection in their lives for a long time (alec has never had it at all), and i’m excited to see how things play out between them in season 2!
“Killian and Emma are perfect for each other!!!”
“Henry needs a father figure!! Killian it’s a perfect father figure!!!”
Ah yes, because a pirate, a “former” villain (that reedemed himself how exactly? Fucking the Savior?) who:
- nearly got his adoptive mother killed;
- in Neverland basically told his grandpa “LOL die so I can finally fuck your daughter”;
- basically told Emma “I gave up my ship for you so now you have to repay me”;
- tried to kill his entire family and his adoptive mother;
is a perfect role model for a teenage boy. Yep. Father of the year.
“Why do you ship SwanQueen? It’s not happening!! CS is the real deal! They have Tru Vuv!”
Hmm..because I can? And I don’t care what you say? Because they are perfect for each other? Because this “new” Emma Swan is a shadow of what she was in the beginning? Because I fuckin’ like them together.
Over and out.
