♡ ULTIMATE DOLAN TWINS MASTERLIST ♡

MERRY CHRISTMAS BABES! As promised here is my gift to all of you, partly a christmas gift and partly a thank you because today I git 1K followers! If you want to hear more about my journey to 1K you can read this post but I know a lot of you probably don’t want to hear me ramble on about that so I’ll cut to the present.

I have created the ULTIMATE Dolan twins masterlist. Basically it is all the most popular/best/my favorite/some of my own (had to) Dolan twins imagines/blurbs/preferences etc. The idea behind it was to have a post for any one in the fandom who loves imagines that showcased all the incredible writers we have in this fandom. This post will be added to constantly so if there are any writers/posts that you want added to this list, inbox/message me and I’ll add them on. So favorite this page, like the post, reblog it, whatever you want and then whenever you are wanting some good writing or need to satisfy your feels you can come back to this. If you ever lose it it will be under the tag ‘dirtydolan masterlist’ or in the description of my blog.

It was still dark.

Alec sighed and pressed his face against Magnus’ back, pressing a kiss between his shoulder blades. The warlock didn’t respond. Alec wasn’t surprised. Magnus was practically drained after the last twenty four hours, and Alec wasn’t much better off himself.

Even after the fight against Valentine and finding each other after hours of not knowing if the other was alright, Magnus and Alec still had work to do. As a downworld leader, Magnus had to help with the identification of the dead, then he opened a portal so that the bodies could be delivered to their packs and clans, rather than leave them for the shadowhunters to dispose of. Then he had met with Luke and Raphiel, about what Alec still hadn’t asked. Magnus would tell him if he wanted to.

Alec had been busy himself. As the head of the institute he’d had to inform the families of the lost shadowhunters and help transport them to the large open space where their funerals would be held. Reports had to be written, damage control completed. Izzy was the infirmary, Jace was brooding, and the Soul Sword was missing. He didn’t know what he needed to deal with first.

Finally, when all that they could do was done, Magnus and Alec had walked to the warlock’s loft, hand in hand, not speaking. Once there, they had removed their shoes at the door and found themselves in Magnus’s huge bathroom.

Alec had undressed his boyfriend with shaking hands. He checked every inch of uncovered skin for injuries, his fists clenching in anger when he found light bruises where the vampires had gripped Magnus outside the institute. Magnus only murmured soothingly to him that he was fine, his nimble fingers going about removing Alec’s gear. If he found a cut or scrape anywhere, he made it disappear with a warm flash of blue from his fingertips before they stepped into the shower together.

Their touches under the hot water hadn’t been sexual, though. They had simply stood together, watching blood and dirt and sweat wash away. Alec had grabbed the shampoo and went for Magnus’ hair, washing out gel and spray until it was left limp and soft between fingers. Magnus had followed his lead, though his menstruations were to sooth Alec.

Alec had looked up into Magnus’s eyes, still ringed in thick black makeup. Makeup that wouldn’t wash away until Magnus wanted it gone. Alec had asked him, in way that he hoped made it clear it was up to Magnus, to take it off. And he had.

Because tonight they didn’t need to be the head of the New York institute or the High Warlock of Brooklyn. They just needed to be Magnus and Alec.

They had gotten out of the shower and dried themselves off before crawling into bed, Alec in shorts and a T-shirt and Magnus in a pair of Alec’s sweatpants. They laid facing each other on Magnus’s bed, their legs tangled and foreheads touching. They spent the short time before they fell asleep whispering ‘I love you’s and kissing.

Alec didn’t remember falling asleep, but now it was well after one in the morning. He wasn’t really concerned, he had made a habit of waking up in the middle of the night around the same time Jace and Izzy had started sneaking out of the institute years ago. He kissed the back of Magnus’s neck and rolled away from him, wanting a little space under the warm sheets.

Alec nuzzled his face into the cool pillow, then slowly opened his eyes to look at the clock. Instead his hazel eyes locked with a pair of dark brown ones. Alec immediately jolted awake, hands searching for a weapon out of reflex before his brain kicked in. He recognized who those eyes belonged to.

“Madzie?” He asked in a hushed voice as a million questions ran through his mind.

What was she doing here? How did she get here? Did Caterina even know she was gone? Why hadn’t she set off Magnus’s wards? Why was she staring at Alec like that?

“I had a bad dream,” The little girl said, as is Alec should have known. As if she had always came to his bedside when she had nightmares.

“Uh…” Madzie looked at the floor.

“Nana let’s me sleep with her when I have bad dreams.”

Finally, Alec’s sleep addled brain kicked in. Madzie had had a nightmare. She was scared. She was scared and her nana was gone. So she found the next person who she trusted. She found Alec.

Suddenly it didn’t matter that there was no way Madzie should have been able to portal herself here when she had never been to Magnus’s apartment. It didn’t matter that she had made it through powerful wards without disturbing Magnus at all. It didn’t matter that this was completely crazy. All that mattered was that Madzie was scared and she had came to Alec for comfort.

“Do you want to sleep with us?” Alec asked her. Madzie nodded, gnawing on her thumb nervously. Alec easily scooped her up and put her on the bed, between himself and Magnus.

Madzie curled into the pillows and pressed herself against Alec’s side, knotting her fingers in his shirt. Alec wrapped his arms around her and hummed softly in her ear.

He knew that Caterina was going to call in a panic in the morning. He knew Magnus was probably going get overexcited in one way or another. He knew the Clave was going to be furious. But he couldn’t find it in himself to care. Right now, all that mattered was the girl drifting to sleep in his arms.

Everything else could wait until morning.

“Hurry up, Dorothy!”

Magnus groaned as the pop song he was currently using as a ring tone woke him from what had been a much needed deep sleep. He reached blindly for the phone, cursing as he knocked several items off of his night stand in the process.

“What?” He demanded, when he finally brought the phone to his ear. He rolled over in the bed and reached for Alexander. His fingers found cold sheets at the same time Caterina’s panicked voice filled his ears.

“Magnus, Madzie is missing.”

“What?” He sat upright in bed, his heart starting to beat faster. “What do you mean she’s missing?”

“She was here last night. I tucked her in to bed myself and made sure that she was asleep. But when I woke up this morning to check on her, she was gone.”

“Damn it,” Magnus got out of bed, nearly tripping over his own feet in his hurry to get to his closet. “Damn it, damn it, damn it.”

“Magnus, don’t panic-”

“Don’t panic! Caterina, there is powerful young warlock missing! One who, might I add, was used by Valentine to murder, kidnap, and do God knows what else. She is probably terrified and the Clave is probably searching for her. And you want me not to panic?!”

Caterina sighed., knowing that there was no use in arguing, especially when she agreed. “I’ll check down town. Call me if you find anything? ”

“Of course.” Magnus hung up. He heard ceramic clacking together in the kitchen and froze. Alec was not going to like this at all.

Magnus briefly considered not telling Alexander anything, but shoved the thought away. That wouldn’t be right. Alec cared very deeply for this child, he would want to help look for her. Magnus sighed and walked out of the bedroom, preparing himself for what he was going to have to say.

“Alex-”

He stopped in his tracks as he took in the scene before him. Alexander was adding pancakes to a large stack on a platter on the counter. Madzie was sitting on one of the barstools, pouring a large quantity of syrup onto the pancacks on the plate in front of her. Alec looked at Magnus, then turned to Madzie.

“I need to talk Magnus for a minute, okay, Madzie? You eat your breakfast.”

The girl nodded and speared a piece of pancake with her fork before popping it into her mouth. Alec smiled at her before walking over to Magnus and pulling him into their room again.

“Alec.”

“Magnus.”

“There’s a child in our kitchen.”

“Yes.”

“Care to explain?” Alec ran a hand through his hair.

“Madzie had a nightmare last night. She told me that she was really scared and that she opened a portal to find me. She has no idea how she ended up here, in this apartment, since she’s never been here before. But she said that she knew she wanted me and that she knew the portal would get her to me. ”

“But my wards…”

“I don’t know, Mags. I think she’s more powerful than any of us ever thought.”

“What are we going to do?” Alec gave him a small smile.

“Magnus, I think you know already.”

Magnus blinked. Was Alec really saying what he thought he was? Did he want to take Madzie in, raise her, with Magnus?

“Are you sure?” Magnus asked.

“She’s very powerful,” Alec said again. “But she’s got no idea how to control herself yet. Who better to teach her than the High Warlock of Brooklyn himself? Plus, she needs people who care about her to raise her. I think we’re the best ones for that.”

Magnus pulled Alec in and kissed him deeply. Alec smiled against his mouth.

“This isn’t going to be easy,” Magnus warned him.

“I know,” Alec told him. “But it’s going to be worth it.”

Magnus hugged him tightly. All of the things he had wanted for so, so long were suddenly coming to him. A true love, a child, a place where he truly belonged.

“Let’s go take care of our daughter,” Magnus smiled.

He made a mental note to text Caterina after breakfast, as he and Alec walked back into the kitchen, hand in hand.

'Grey's Anatomy' Cast Offers Hope for Couples of Grey Sloan | EW

The cast of the ABC medical drama gathered at PaleyFest Sunday afternoon for a panel moderated by EW’s very own Henry Goldblatt. Ellen Pompeo, Justin Chambers, Kevin McKidd, Caterina Scorsone, Jerrika Hinton, Kelly McCreary, Jason George, Chandra Wilson, James Pickens Jr, Jessica Capshaw, Jesse Williams, Sarah Drew, Martin Henderson, Giacomo Gianniotti, and executive producer Debbie Allen revealed scoop about the upcoming Ellen Pompeo-directed hour, whether there’s hope for Jackson and April, if Meredith will finally take the next step with Riggs, and much, much more. Here are the highlights:

Pompeo’s directorial debut: After screening the upcoming Pompeo-directed hour, the actress credited Allen with getting her to direct her first episode. “This force of nature wouldn’t take no for an answer, and I’m forever grateful to her for that,” Pompeo says. Though this was the actress’ first time directing, she notes that she wasn’t nervous about landing the emotional weight of the Maggie-centric hour, but rather just the technical aspects. “I have the best cast in the world,” Pompeo says. “I wasn’t really afraid of anything.” However, Pompeo adds directing herself was “not fun, but I was lucky to have Debbie Allen right with me every step of the way, so when I was tired or confused, she jumped in.”

Maggie’s mom returns: LaTonya Richardson Jackson returns as Maggie’s mother ahead of the Pompeo-directed episode, therefore setting up the episode to heavily feature her treatment for breast cancer — so yes, Maggie will finally be in the know. However things shake out, her mother’s illness is certainly going to affect Maggie. “Major life events like this enable you to shift your perspective and reevaluate what’s important to you,” McCreary says. “For a long time, being one version of herself was the right way to do things.” Judging by this comment, it sounds like she may try to shake things up soon.

The future of Meredith and Riggs: While it looks like the duo might be heading toward an actual relationship, the question remains how Maggie will feel about that since she’s harbored feelings for Riggs since last season’s finale. “Women have to stick together,” Pompeo says. And if Mer did choose her sister over Riggs, Henderson says he’d understand. “I would respect it, but I think it would be sad because all men know that it’s impossible to be a great man without a good woman by your side.” Whether Meredith and Riggs explore a relationship or not, Henderson hopes we’ll get much more information about his character soon. “It’s been wonderful to play a character that’s polarizing,” he says. “There’s this mystery and enigma as to, ishe a good guy, is he a bad guy? … As an actor, after a couple seasons on the show, I’m looking forward to the opportunity for Nathan to be a in a relationship — whether it’s platonic or not  — to see who he is deep down.”

Will Jackson and April reconcile? After a steamy hookup in Montana, there’s hope that Japril might get back together, but Drew stays relatively coy about the future. “I honestly think the main takeaway is that these two people, there’s so much love there, there’s so much respect there, they know each other so well, so whether it continues toward romance or stays platonic, we know these two people are going to be OK,” Drew says. As for whether Jackson’s father, Robert Avery (Eric Roberts) will return, Williams says, “I hope so.” Adds Allen: “We planted a lot of seeds this season, and that’s one that could resonate in a lot of ways, but there’s more coming.”

Can Amelia and Owen’s relationship survive? Their relationship status is currently marked “it’s complicated” since Amelia now no longer wants to have kids, which is basically the one reason the relationship between Owen and Cristina (Sandra Oh) didn’t survive. “He desperately wants a baby,” McKidd says. “Owen’s really struggling. He’s a very tortured guy — he thinks the thing that’s going to fix him is to have a family with this woman, but she doesn’t want to right now. He’s waiting and he loves her and he’s tortured and we’ll see what happens.”

What’s next for Jo and Alex? Though the two have been on the outs since Alex beat DeLuca within an inch of his life, now that Alex knows that Jo was married to an abusive man, he understands why she was hesitant to marry him. “He wants to marry her,” Chambers says. When asked whether he’d like Alex to end up with Jo or with — twist — Meredith, Chambers says, “Anything is possible, especially on Grey’s Anatomy. Who knows? He might end up with Catherine. I’d like to see how it fleshes out, the relationship with him and Jo.”

The relationship at the center of “Civil War”: Ever since the show introduced a replacement for Webber, the hospital has been at odds over Dr. Minnick (Marika Domińczyk) — well, except for Arizona, who has found romance with the new doc after ex-wife Callie (Sara Ramirez) moved away last season. “It’s been interesting, it’s been new,” Capshaw says, explaining that the show got to a point last season where viewers could “happily permit both of them to be happy without each other,” hence paving the way for Arizona’s new romance with Minnick. “I find myself at a point where there’s something exciting happening for her, there’s a newness. This season I feel like is the beginning of creating something new.” However, Capshaw hedges, “I have no idea if she’s the one.” For what it’s worth, when asked what her favorite ‘shipper name on the series was, she says, “I think I have to go with Calzona.”

The future of Grey’s? When asked what she thinks about the future of the show and where she’d like to see Meredith end up, Pompeo says, “Maybe why I’ve been able to do this show for so long is because I try not to have expectations. I do the same thing in my life, I try not to look down the road too far because we’re going to miss what happens right now today… I try to enjoy every moment with an open heart and an open mind… Life will tell me where I”m going. I don’t want to think about what’s next, I want to enjoy this moment.”

For Better or For Worse

Inspired by the song Old Friends (Jasmine Thompson) - I think you will all recognise this song from the elevator scene in 13x21 - enjoy!


People who matter don’t mind
They don’t need all of my time
Somebody told me to light up every room
Make them remember you
But nobody here knows what I’m going through
No they never do

She had broken down in my arms, no words, not one. The only sound that filled that elevator was that of her heaving breathing due to her crying. She was crying, I had only seen her break down like that once before and that was after Derek had died. This was more, there was more to the situation than I could have ever anticipate. But in true Amelia style she was burying it, ‘managing it’ as she had put it in the past.  Even though she hasn’t been home and had barely said two words to me, I don’t care; she is my wife, I love her, I love her so much. I need her to be ok, I need to know that she is ok. Even though I love her and will be there for her no matter what, I need to recognise my own limitations, there is only so much I can do at the moment. As I walked past the OR board I noticed Amelia’s surgery being wiped off, then I noticed who she had been in surgery with.

anonymous asked:

I didn't see the fic you were talking about; can you explain what was wrong with Magnus's character? Also, do you have any recs with good Magnus characterization? Thanks!

Hey! 

The fic rec portion! (The discourse is under the cut because it’s a little long)

Here is a link to my previous fic rec, I stand by everything I said then.

And now! Some of the more recently written ones!

The Right Kind of Love by onyxmoon is totally stunning. Absolutely the type of fic that characterizes Magnus well, and respects the fuck out of him. The ending in particular always gets me.

Empty Seconds by Dead_walking is so beautiful- it really speaks to his tendency to constantly lend out his heart without looking back and ultimately all the people he loves truly taking care of him and respecting him. My kink tbh.

(the heart is a) Weapon by @theleftboobgrabber is a really wonderful spy AU featuring Spy!Alec and Handler! Magnus. When they get kidnapped by Valentine they have to escape! This one isn’t completed but I still rec it.

Fall Without Wings by vulturemonem is another multi-chaptered fic that is still a WIP. BUT it is fun, basically, it’s an entire fic of Alec unlearning Clave BS mixed in with Magnus being a badass. 

And Contemplate Your Navel by LilyChenAppreciationSociety talks about how Magnus first realized he lost his belly button (though that isn’t strictly true in show canon) and how he met Caterina. Super cute and has the added bonus of no Shadowhunters.

Bella notte by notnatural if you’re anything like me you like a fic to be well characterized AND funny as far as it can be. This one does a pretty good job of walking the line, and I’m a big fan of fluff. 

of all things green on this earth by horchatita394 I suppose technically this fic mostly deals with the death of Ragnor Fell and that impact on Raphael and Magnus. But it really hits you, and you get an understanding of Magnus’ wisdom. 

And, whatever, I think I do an okay job from time to time. So shamelessly: here’s my stuff if you’re interested

The Discourse Portion

Center Stage

This is my first Malec week submission. I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with. Hope you like this.

Magnus had been in a frenzy all week. He was planning a birthday party for Alec and he wanted everything perfect.

He’d been trying to do most of the work while Alec was at the Institute so he couldn’t complain about him over doing things.

“Just don’t go over- board, please? You know I’m not that sort of person. That’s your department.” He had said to him one night a few weeks before hand when they had been snuggled up on the sofa together in the loft when Magnus had told him what he wanted to do.

“I know, my love, but I just think it would be a great opportunity to get all our friends and your parents and Max together. We haven’t had a party since Max’s ruin ceremony.”

“Yeah, and look what happened then. Just promise me you’ll keep a lid on it. It will be the first time that Mum and Dad will be here since they divorced. Dad mentioned the last time I spoke to him that he was seeing someone so that should be interesting.” Alec raised his eye brows. Magnus gave his hand a comforting pat.

“I’m sure it will be fine. It’s been two years since then and I’m sure they have both moved on from any hostilities.”

“Yeah, I’m not holding my breath on that one.”

It was now the day before the party and Magnus was in a whirlwind of activity in the loft. He had done the decorating himself, basing the theme on their last trip away together in Morocco. Rich, deep jewelled colours of dark red, peacock blue, emerald green, dark pink and a rich gold filled the living area in beautiful glass mosaic lamps and candle holders. He had tented the roof from the centre of the ceiling in heavy silk material in the chosen colours, a magnificent coloured glass chandelier the centrepiece.

Magnus had replaced the sofas with piles of large floor cushions and richly upholstered chairs. He had organised caterers to prepare a buffet of traditional food with a few planner dishes as well. He had to laugh a little when Izzy had offered to help with the cooking.

She and Simon had been together for just over a year now and they had moved in together about six months ago but from the amount of times they had ended up at the loft for dinner with he and Alec, Magnus was sure her cooking skills still left a lot to be desired.

The caterers arrived to start bringing in their equipment and unpacking the crockery, glass ware and cutlery. Magnus smiled when he saw Clary sneaking in behind them. She stood in the room, hands on her hips, looking around.

“Well Magnus, I have to say, I think you’ve out done yourself this time. It looks absolutely beautiful.” She said, smiling at him.

“Thank you, Biscuit, I’m glad you think so. I just hope Alexander feels the same. He did warn me about over doing things.”

“I’m sure he’ll love it. Especially when he gets his “special” present. It will all be worth it.”  Clary gave him a wink.

Magnus had let her in on the special gift he had prepared for Alec. He had gotten it a month ago and he had needed to trust someone with it so he hadn’t been tempted to give it to him early or run the risk of Alec finding it.

Clary was the only person he had entrusted with it. He had thought about giving it to Caterina but she was so busy with Madsi now be didn’t want her to forget to bring it with her to the party.

“You haven’t told that big mouth boyfriend of yours, have you? I know what Jace is like. He can’t keep anything to himself for long.” Magnus asked, giving her a worried look.

“No, I haven’t and it’s not from his lack of trying to get it out of me either. He’s done everything but hold a seraph blade to my throat and he knows that I’d probably beat him with that as well. You’re secret’s safe with me, Magnus. I can’t wait.”

Alec had arrived home just as the last of the caterers had left for the evening. He walked in the door and just shook his head. Magnus obviously had no clue what ‘keeping it simple” meant. But he had to admit, it did look fantastic.

Magnus came up to him and handed him one of his special cocktails.

“Welcome home, my love. Hard day at the office?” He took a sip from his own glass, his eyes never moving from Alec’s face.

“I thought we agreed to tone it down, Magnus? You call this simple?”

“well, yes, actually. It could have been worse, I could have moved the loft to Morocco for the night. This was much easier. I heard from your parents earlier. They arrived here safely from Idris and are very comfortable at the apartments I organised for them.”

“I hope they’re on separate floors.”

“Oh don’t be like that, they were fine with the arrangements and they said to tell you they would see you tomorrow night.”

“Did Max come as well?”

“Yes, he’s staying with your mother. Maryse did happen to mention he is currently going through his angsty teenager phase so we should be prepared for that.” Alec gave a small laugh. It was hard for him to realise that his little brother was growing up. It only seemed liked yesterday when his mother was accusing him of being the same way. Only he knew it was for a different reason than Max’s would be.

The next day went quickly and Alec had Clary and Izzy pushing him out the door early so he could go home and get ready for his party. He had already had a small celebration with some of the other Shadowhunters at lunch time in the Institute’s dining room. Izzy had proudly brought out a rather lop sided, frosting smothered cake that she had made for him and the members that had been there all sang happy birthday to him.

He had arrived at the loft to find magnus running around attending to all the last-minute details and he had shooed him into the shower the second he had hit the door. He was already looking wonderful in his signature silk shirt, embroidered waist coat and black slim fitting pants. His makeup done perfectly as always.

Alec found a brand-new suit and shirt waiting for him when he came back into the bedroom. It was beautifully tailored and he shook his head when he saw the designer label inside the coat. Magnus never did things by halves, that was for sure.

Two hours later, and the room was filled with their family and friends. Maryse came with Max, who looked like he would of rather been running drills with one of his instructors instead of being there.

Robert Lightwood had arrived with his girlfriend and introduced her to Magnus and Alec. She had seemed very nice if not a bit nervous. Clary and Jace were sitting on the floor cushions with Izzy and Simon, laughing and joking with each other. Caterina was there with Madsi who was clinging shyly to her arm. She was still not used to events that had a lot of people at them.

As the night went on, Magnus sought out Clary and they ducked into the bedroom together.

“Here it is, Magnus. Safe and sound. I hope you don’t mind but I did have a peek at it and it’s the most precious thing I’ve ever seen, so unique.”

“Yes, you have no idea what I had to do to get it but I’d do it all again for Alexander. Wish me luck, Biscuit.” Clary gave him a warm hug.

“It’ll be fine. Go for it.” She told him and they headed back out to the party. Magnus searched the room for his boyfriend. He was talking to his mother on the other side of the room. He took a deep breath and started towards him when one of the caterers came up to him about a problem in the kitchen. He went with her to sort it out and then headed back to find Alec.

He only got another two steps before someone pulled him up to talk to him and he tried to be polite but his nerves were really getting to him. After the third person had stopped him he had reached his limit.

“Excuse me, everyone. I want to thank you all for coming to help celebrate Alexander’s birthday with us and I hope you are enjoying yourselves. I have been trying to get to my beloved for half an hour now and I can’t wait any longer. Alexander, can you come here please?” He looked around and saw Alec weave his way to him and stand at his side. Magnus closed his eyes and took a deep breath.

“My special Shadow hunter here didn’t want a fuss made for his birthday and he probably thinks that I went too far, yet again but I wanted to make tonight as special as possible for a good reason.” A round of laughter went around the room as everyone watched them. Alec ran a finger around the inside of his collar, nervously. He had always been uncomfortable being the centre of attention. Magnus turned to face him and grabbed his hand. There was something about the way he was looking at him that made him hold his breath.

“Alexander, I want all our friends and family know how much I truly love you. You’ve been there for me in so many ways over the past two years and I hope I have done the same for you. I told you once that you had unlocked something in me and I was right. You had the key to my heart.”

 Magnus took a small red leather box out of his pocket and went down on one knee. The room went completely silent and Alec felt his heart jump into his throat. Magnus opened the case and held it up to him. His eyes grew wide as he saw a ring that had a magical jewel in its center. It was a deep purple and seemed to swirl around like a miniature galaxy. It was breath taking.

“Alexander Gideon Lightwood, would you marry me?” Magnus said, his voice wavering slightly with emotion.

Alec looked to his face and saw tears filling his eyes.  There was only ever going to be one answer.

“Yes, Magnus, I can’t wait to marry you.” The tears streamed down Magnus’ cheeks and he took the ring from its case and slid it onto Alec’s finger before standing up to take him in his arms and kiss him soundly. A loud cheer went up from around the room and everyone came over to congratulate them. Alec felt overwhelmed by all the well-wishers and never let Magnus’ hand go once. Clary, Izzy and even his mother were all in tears and he ended up with a damp shoulder by the time they had let him go. This was one time that Alec had never been happier to be center stage.

Auditions!

Yes! It’s finally here! The oh so talented Caterina Primrose is finally starting her own theatre troupe! (I haven’t decided 100% on a name yet.)

Posts have been made previously about this, and with the growing excitement, I was inspired to quickly make it happen. I have so many ideas in mind.

This is NOT a guild, so you don’t have to leave one thing you love to go to another, you know? 

When are auditions being held? Saturday, February 18th and Sunday, February 19th at 5:00 pm server (on both days)

Where?  

OOCLY - The City Hall in the Cathedral Square 

ICLY - Since it’s not really plausible for her to rent the City Hall (it is the CITY hall), it’ll just be in a building somewhere else in the city, due to the fact the city is much bigger in reality than game mechanics allow it to be.

Audition requirements: 

  1. One monologue that your character has memorized (You can obviously just pull it up online)
  2. Your character is required to bring a prepared little piece of music to either play or sing (if you were doing it in real life it’d be no more than a minute). If your character can’t sing, DON’T worry! The troupe won’t be doing too much singing unless we all decide to do a musical. It’s just helpful to know who can and cannot bust out them vocal chords when we do need it. So if the monologue is good, they’ll likely be admitted in!

What sort of things would we be doing?

If your character is accepted to be part of the troupe, we’d choose a play, hold auditions, cast, have little rehearsals every few days, figure out venues, perform at other guild’s events (if we can), perform our own shows, and when we don’t have a major production going on or want to role-play something more than rehearsal - we’ll do fun skits and street improvisation! 

What if my character wouldn’t perform but I’d still like to be involved?

We need Directors. This will enable your character to get their creative side rolling and portray the story how they perceived it with their artistic vision in mind. If we don’t have directors, I’ll be directing all the shows, I’d love to see other people give it a try though!

We could use Playwrights. Original work would be SO cool. 

As a theatre major I can tell you that we need a LOT more than just actors. We need costume designers - yes! If you’re good at those mogs and would like to help, contact me please, omg! 

We also need stage hands, people who can help us fulfill the visual special effects and help with set designing/locations. Stage hands also just generally help the actors backstage. If they need a quick change, or someone to do their makeup/hair for them, stage hands help.

We need ushers! People who will escort and interact with the audience before the show, during intermission, and after! This means you might be collecting the money at the ticket box, or relax at the concession stand as well.

If your character would want to sit back and let someone else take the reigns while they observe and learn, they can audition for the troupe as an understudy! 

If your character wouldn’t be involved at all but supports it, come see the shows, sponsor them, donate clothing for costumes! It’s something that has a place for everyone in the community, and I hope to see you all there. 

Sincerely, the mun, Cam. <3 

“Tout ce me conduit à toi,
et je me rends à dés émotions innoques,
comme les fruits non mûrs,
que je prends de ton bras.
Et je ne connais pas d'autres armes, à partir
de laquelle choisir du morir”.
 

“All brings me here,
and I abandon me to unknown emotions,
as the unripe fruits,
that I take from your arms.
And I dunno what others arms choose,
If I would have to die”.

13x24 - A Few Thoughts...

                      *WARNING CONTAINS SPOILERS!*


1) I am SO happy they did not kill off Edwards - the writers made the right choice here, she chose something else, she chose to heal herself rather than heal others. It was a beautiful send-off for a beautiful character. Amelia’s gonna be pissed though… Also “did you take the scenic route?” was a great one liner from her just to remind Warren one last time who is on top! Finally the song Dancing on My Own was the perfect fit - Edwards has lived her whole life in hospitals and then Dr Webber and Dr Shepherd were her mentors and now she needs to go and live her life, she needs to learn to dance on her own. 

2) Megan is in the USA and Riggs is driving to be with her! This will be a love story for the ages! Meredith was so altruistic, she saw the bigger picture and knew: “If it were Derek, I would already be gone”. I have no complaints about how they dealt with Riggs being told by Mer; for once it was not all about her!

The long way home. Pt. 2

He fumbled in the pocket of his jacket for his phone and then realized he had no idea what her number was. Magnus’ phone, it would be in that. He patted down his pants’ pockets and then his jacket before he found it and tapped the screen to find what he was looking for. If it had been any other situation, he would of gotten a kick out of seeing Magnus’ screen saver was a picture of them together.

He dialled the number and waited. And waited. Caterina wasn’t answering, the call going to voice mail.

“Caterina, its Alec Lightwood, there’s something wrong with Magnus. I just came home and found him on the floor out cold. Please call as soon as you get this.” He hopped that Caterina was able to make sense out of the message, the words had flown out of him in a panicked rush. The loft was in darkness now, the only light coming through the balcony doors from the lights of the city. Alec needed there to be light. The dark was too depressing. Fear lived in the dark.

He gently removed Magnus’ head from his lap and got up and turned on the lamps before returning to him. He sat with his back against the sofa and as gently as he could, pulled Magnus close to him so his upper body was lying in his arms against his chest. He ran a finger down the side of his face, feeling the warmth of his smooth skin. Most of the time when they were together like this, they were in their bed, surrounded by red satin sheets. It usually only took the slightest of touches for Alec to be able to wake the warlock and be rewarded with the sight of those beautiful amber cat’s eyes glowing back at him and that pretty mouth curved into a smile that was just for him.

God, how he prayed that it would happen now. He checked Magnus’ phone again but there was still no reply from Caterina.

“Please, Baby, wake up. I need you to wake up.” He said, holding Magnus closer to him and burying his face in the spiky tufts of his hair. He closed his eyes and took in the scent that was all Magnus’ own. How he had come to love that smell. It was as exotic as the man himself. Completely unique.

“I remember the first time I ever smelt you. It was the day we first met at your old lair and we’d just put down that Circle member that was attacking you. You came up to me afterwards to introduce yourself. I remember thinking I’d never seen anyone like you before and how you made my heart race, just by standing in front of me. You probably thought it was me just being a big dork stuttering like I was but it was because the second you came near me and I could smell you it just made all my sense want to leave me.” He told him. He bent his head and placed a soft kiss to Magnus’ forehead. But the warlock slept on.

“I can’t believe now what an idiot I was for so long. All that time wasted when we could have been together.” He gave a small laugh, as he looked down, watching his face. “But you knew, didn’t you? You knew before I wanted to admit it to myself.” He traced a finger over his perfect lips.

“You never gave up on me, did you? Even when I proposed to Lydia and was determined to go through with it, you kept going. The hardest thing I’d ever done to that point was denying how I felt about you to your face that day when I came to see you. I told myself I came just to ask you about finding the warlock who had made the potion that Jocelyn took,  but it was because in spite of everything else I still wanted to see you, I thought, for the last time.” Alec put his head back against the sofa closing his eyes and letting the memory take over his mind.

“You have no idea how much it ripped my guts out to stand there with you talking about love and the way you made me feel without giving in to those feelings. You were right on the money when you said you knew I felt what you did. And it scared me shitless. I’d never been so utterly attracted to someone before let alone another guy. Not even the stupid crush I had on Jace.” He took a deep breath remembering that moment and then the horrible way he had snapped back at Magnus, determined to live the lie that Magnus had confronted him about.

“It took every ounce of will power I had to walk away from you that day. I thought I’d never see you again, and it was almost too painful to bear it.” Alec looked back down at him, feeling a similar pain once more. He placed a soft kiss to his lips, trying to will Magnus awake but he remained unchanged. He could feel tears stinging his eyes. He couldn’t leave him, not now. He had to come back to him. He looked at the screen of the phone. Where the hell was Caterina and why wasn’t she calling back?

“You have to wake up now, Baby, please, I can’t loose you. I never wanted to feel this way again, like I did after the attack on the Institute and I couldn’t find you. I’d never been so scared in all my life at the thought of you being hurt, or worse. At least I can hold you this time, be with you even though you don’t know it. I love so much Magnus Bane. Please come back to me.” Alec felt the tears run down his cheeks and fall onto Magnus’ waistcoat with a soft plop. He  hugged him even tighter to him, and buried his face into his neck.

He had no idea how long they had sat there for, on the floor of the quiet apartment. Alec slowly became aware of something touching him. He could feel the warmth of a hand on his face and he gave a slow smile. Then he felt warm lips on his and he instinctively kissed them back, his own hand reaching up to go around the back of a neck, forcing them to press harder. Suddenly the fog in his mind cleared and he pulled back, his eyes flying open.

Magnus was still in his arms but this time those beautiful amber eyes glowed back at him only inches from his own. A soft smile curving his lips.

“Magnus! You’re awake! Oh by the angel! I thought… I mean.. I didn’t…” He stammered. Magnus gave a small laugh and held a finger up to press it against his lips.

“Sssh, it’s alright my love, I know. I’m so sorry I made you go through that, not knowing what was wrong with me. I know what you must of been feeling, having been there myself after you lost yourself in your parabatai tracking that time. I nearly went out of my mind.”

“But what happened? Why couldn’t I wake you up?”

“I was with Caterina on a job that had required us to burn through quite a bit of magic. She was very weak herself  but I managed to talk her into leaving and I stayed to finish up. I knew my own magic had drained me but I thought if could just get back here and get to my elixir I’d be fine. Seems I underestimated a little. Making the portal to get back here finished me off, I’m afraid. I was completely spent, Alexander, that’s why I was so unresponsive.” Magnus explained.

“I was nearly out of my mind worrying about you, Magnus. I came home and found you on the floor like that, it was horrible. I tried calling Caterina but she never rang me back.”

“She was probably asleep as well. Once a warlock depletes their magic to that extent, the only way to recover is by sleeping it off. The elixir I have can revive it but not when it gets that bad.”

Alec frowned at his boyfriend and wrapped his arms around him tightly.

“Never do that to me again, Baby. I can’t go through this for a third time. Promise me you’ll stop before you get that bad. The thought of you passed out somewhere where I couldn’t get to you is too much to think about.”

Magnus pulled back from him so he could look into Alec’s deep hazel eyes. He put a soft kiss on his lips and smiled.

“I promise, Alexander. I don’t want to cause you that much worry if I can help it. What do you say we get off this floor and go to bed?” he purred.

He stood up and offered him a hand. Alec took it, hauling his tall frame stiffly off the floor. He rubbed his butt, wincing at the numbness from sitting for so long on the hard surface.

“Need a hand with that?” Magnus said, smirking at him, one elegant eyebrow arched. He reached his arms around him and started to push his hands down into the back of Alec’s jeans. Alec grabbed his arms to stop him.

“Are you kidding me? You need more rest, we’re going to bed and you’re going back to sleep.” He told him, determinedly.

“Wanna bet?” Magnus crooned and he grabbed the front of his shirt and started hauling him off in the direction of the bedroom door. Alec thought about trying to resist him but once again he knew he was powerless when it came to the wonderful Magnus Bane. This time he wasn’t even going to try.

anonymous asked:

can you talk more on what you like about the renaissance and the artists? i find them so fascinating

i answered a more specific one about leonardo alone here, but here are some of my general favourite things about the important figures of the italian renaissance

  • on her deathbed, caterina sforza said to a monk: “se io potessi scrivere tutto, farei stupire il mondo" (if i could write everything, i would shock the world) which i think just makes her the second coolest person in the entirety of italian history
  • speaking of the coolest person in italian history, da vinci took so long to finish the last supper that when the prior complained, leonardo said that the reason it was taking so long was because he couldn’t find a face that was so filled with evil that would fit judas, but if the prior was so desperate to have it finished, leonardo said that he would use him as a model
  • lucrezia borgia was said to have a hollow ring that she used for poisoning drinks
  • michelangelo hated everyone. he mocked leonardo for his failed statue in milan and had a bitter grudge with raphael ever since raphael looked at one of his paintings before it was released
  • leonardo, in turn, wrote bitchy comments about michelangelo in his diaries
  • seriously if someone were to make a show about the renaissance artists, it wouldn’t be some high brow drama, it would be something along the lines of mean girls crossed with the office
  • leonardo: “omg michelangelo, i love your fresco. what inspired it?” 
    michelangelo: “the bible” 
    leonardo: “vintage, i love it!”
    leonardo [after michelangelo walks away]: “that is the ugliest fucking fresco i have ever seen”
  • da vinci himself was really well liked by everyone but he was such a fucking DORK he used to buy caged birds and just to release them and was a chronic procrastinator. he was also gay af and the love of my life
  • machiavelli’s ‘the prince’ is the biggest piece of mancrush literature since plato’s symposium
  • also they were like, all gay, all the renaissance artists except for raphael who was tragically heterosexual. michelangelo wrote really over the top romantic letters to some dude, and da vinci was arrested for sodomy
  • @ historical fiction that tries to make my guys into aggressive womanizers: fuck off
  • so if the artists were the sitcom of the renaissance, caterina sforza is the blockbuster politics heavy action film. she literally occupied the vatican on behalf of her husband by riding across the tiber river on horseback while seven months pregnant
  • she was honestly so fucking savage when the orsis family threatened to kill her children she ‘exposed her genitals’ and said  “do it, if you want to: hang them even in front of me…here I have what’s needed to make others!” and they were so fucking shocked they didn’t dare touch her children
  • i could make a whole post about her, she was so fucking cool i adore her she is incredible
  • moving on, this: “the theory is that people were generally not too enthusiastic about the catholic church’s regular massacres of jews and muslims, because the people they were killing looked like jesus.  pope alexander vi then ordered the destruction of all art depicting a semitic jesus and commissioned a number of paintings depicting a caucasian jesus. his son, cardinal cesare borgia, was the model for these paintings.”
  • cesare tried to kill lucrezia’s first husband and probably did kill her second. he also apparently came to her wedding dressed as a unicorn, the symbol of purity which is just about the most laughable thing he ever did in his life
  • botticelli claimed that the prospect of marriage gave him nightmares

this kinda swayed a lot from being just about the artists, but i hope it was what you were looking for!

James?!

PROMPT: The hospital needs to hire a doctor for the trauma, and James, Amelia’s ex-fiancé, is the chosen one. Owen in the beginning really like James, they can go out for drinks after work…but the friendship change when he discovers that James is Amelia’s ex fiancé… Owen feel jealous, insecure about James….something like that!!

@marciamossmendes    This one is for you! Hope you enjoy it, I loved the prompt and really had a great time writing it!
