I cannot wait for the day when we see Magnus walk into the Institute and we hear a cry of “BABE!” and Alec is running towards him and before Magnus can say anything, Alec scoops him up into a sweet yet passionate kiss, not caring about who is watching and when he pulls away, he rests his forehead against Magnus’, his arms around his waist, and whispers, “I missed you.” and Magnus laughs and whispers back, teasingly mimicking Alec’s breathless tone (even though he’s breathless himself), “We saw each other yesterday.” “Yesterday feels like an eternity.” Alec replies, brushing his lips against Magnus’, his hands framing Magnus’ face as Magnus holds onto his arms, humming into the kiss. Alec tastes like mint and it’s so familiar and warm and lovely that Magnus smiles into the kiss and tilts his head up to get a better angle. “People are staring.” he notes when they pull away. Not that Magnus minds, though, but he’s worried about Alec being uncomfortable with all the attention. Alec snorts and presses short, short kisses against Magnus’ cheek, earning a chuckle from the shorter man. “Let them stare.” is all he responds with, turning Magnus’ head gently with his hands to capture his lips once more and Magnus’ heart skips a beat. It’s so simple, what Alec says, but it makes Magnus want to sing because of the fact that Alec is so confident and comfortable with who he is now, as well as the fact that he’s not afraid to love him, even in public. A feeling in pride for his boyfriend swells in Magnus and he makes a noise of content when Alec’s fingers caress his jaw. Alec takes Magnus’ hand when they pull away again, smiling sweetly at each other, and turns to see that everyone in the Institute is staring at them, wide-eyed. “What are you staring at? Back to work!” Alec commands and everyone hurriedly resumes what they were doing and Magnus laughs and presses a kiss to Alec’s knuckles and Alec leads him away, hands intertwined, laughing and adorning bright, glittering smiles.
