let me just be emotional here for a quick second and say that magnus is, canonically, super good at pool??? he’s probably been playing this silly little bar game ever since it was invented??? like he obviously used his magic to manipulate the table around mundanes in the 1900s but even …. without it …. he’s so good and knows so many tricks but can hustle his fucking boyfriend into thinking he doesn’t. how many people has he hustled like that before??? he probably invented hustling goodbye

Summary: Steve can’t remember a time in which he wasn’t surrounded by dragons. When he was just a child, he remembers watching them fly overhead on royal missions, seeing them drinking from the vast lake just outside his village. He remembers clutching to his mother’s leg as he watched them fly overhead, taking their riders to far-off places, on missions or just for the thrill of flying. And when he goes to basic training to become a Royal Guardsman, he finally gets to live out his dream. He doesn’t care if he’s small, he doesn’t care if his asthma or whatever else gets in the way - he just wishes that Prince James would stop tormenting him.
