except i am so

my hobbies include thrift shopping, procrastinating my uni assignments, and referring to as “bangers” songs that 100% do not fall into the category of bangers

I rarely post something that’s not MFMM related, but today is the day I particularly need a hug, so I am making an exception.

What’s the world coming to when innocent children and young adults are targeted at a pop princess’s concert? Imagine their anticipation and excitement in the days, weeks, or even months leading up to this event. Now instead of bringing home with them fun and magical memories, they will forever remember the terror of running for their lives and, for some, the heartaches of losing their dear friends.

On a personal note, my mother’s health has been declining rapidly recently. She was just sent to the hospital for the fourth time in the last two months, and this time the doctor put her in ICU for observation. Being half a world away, there is not much I can do, except anxiously waiting for updates from my siblings. My father passed away suddenly 5 years ago of a heart attack. It was devastating because none of us saw it coming. Based on the doctor’s words, we are now mentally prepared for my mother’s condition. It seems that she will pull through this time, but no one can predict how things will turn out next time.

There are many things in life that are beyond our comprehension or control. What we can control, though, is how we choose to deal with them. Give your family and friends an extra hug as you never know if you will get to hug them again. Smile at your neighbors, coworkers, or even strangers. It will not bring world peace, but a little more kindness will make the world a better place. I hope.

really underappreciated things: the way Sugilite crouches down to be as ‘at Steven’s level’ as possible and asks “Hey Steven, wanna see something cool?” in this very genuine and gentle (comparatively) way. Its such a lovely, big siblingy thing. Sugilite is very much a person who is unapologetically huge and loud but she makes herself as small and gentle as she can to talk to her little bro, and I reckon that’s the only person she’d bother doing that for (and Rose, probably)

“Sean Monahan wrote Jay Feaster. He said that I promise if Calgary drafts me, I’ll play in the NHL as an 18 year old. He did and he has 20+ goals four years in a row.”

Imagine the morning after Alec and Magnus had their first date. Alec stayed the night, even though he believed that it might be a bad idea. It is too early after all to stay a whole night at Magnus’. It all goes too fast. But he can’t help himself.

So they are lying in bed. Magnus is still sleeping peacefully. He is lying on his stomach, half of his head buried in a pile of pillows, face towards Alec. Alec is wide awake. His head resting on his hand while he simply stares dreamily at Magnus. Magnus doesn’t wear any make-up and he is snoring a little. Alec smiles. A tiny smile at first. But it gets broader, he just can’t stop it. He can’t believe that he is in Magnus’ loft, lying next to Magnus, the most beautiful man he ever layed eyes on. Alec knows that he must look like a fool but he doesn’t care at all. He lifts his right hand and brushes through Magnus’ thick black hair. He is surprised how soft it is when it is not spiked up. Alec’s fingertips are wandering carefully along Magnus’ jawline, he doesn’t want to wake Magnus up. His thumb brushes over Magnus’ cheek. Magnus still doesn’t wake up under Alec’s gentle touches.

And Alec? He is just smiling while the sun comes up and the first ray of light lightens up the bedroom. He closes his eyes for a second, his hand lingering over Magnus’ cheek. When he opens his eyes again, he notices that Magnus is awake. He looks bleary and it is so adorable that Alec has a lump in his throat. But the thing that shocks him the most are Magnus’ eyes. His cat eyes are showing and they are so beautiful that they instantly take Alec’s breath away.

He swallows.

It takes Magnus a bit to understand what is happening. He wants to turn away from Alec, ashamed. He needs to glamour his eyes again since it looks like they shocked Alec so much. He just hopes he is not that much disgusted by them. Or him.

Alec grabs Magnus’ shoulder, silenty shaking his head. Magnus furrows his brows. Until Alec leans towards him, cupping Magnus’ face with both hands. Magnus closes his eyes, he can’t look at Alec any longer. It’s too much. He silently curses himself that he forgot about his warlock mark.

But Alec just doesn’t care at all. He presses a featherlight kiss on Magnus’ left eyelid. He hears how Magnus inhales sharply. Then he kisses the right eyelid. It’s so soft and tender, Magnus feels like crying. It takes all of him to fight against the tears building behind his lids. When Alec presses another soft kiss against his forehead, Magnus opens his eyes.

“Don’t hide your true self from me, Magnus. Ever. You’re beautiful. All of you.”

And that is the moment when Magnus Bane falls even more in love with Alexander Gideon Lightwood. Not that Magnus will tell him about his feelings yet. It’s too early. Magnus knows that.

But one day soon…

So now that you’re gone, what do I do? I can’t sleep, I can’t eat, I can’t do anything except think of you. I am so in love with you and I am not okay. The only time I’m ever actually okay is when I’m drunk or high, but even then I’m still calling out for you..
—  You’re my midnight thoughts.
