Hmmm. How about malec and "can we pretend I didn't just say that?" Thanks!
@magnusbones said: malec + “Can we pretend I didn’t just say that?“
magnus has lived for centuries, has enough memories for lifetimes upon lifetimes, yet few things can compare to a slightly tipsy, sleepy alec cuddled up next to him, his arms around magnus and his face pressed against magnus’ neck.
“this is nice,“ alec mumbles, his words slurred together, and then presses a kiss to magnus’ neck. “you smell nice.“
“thank you, alexander,“ magnus says, breathing out a laugh and feeling alec’s lips stretch into a smile.
“i love it when you call me that. especially when i get called ‘mr. lightwood’ or ‘alec’ at the institute all day.”
“well, unless you want everyone calling you ‘alexander’-“ alec shakes his head rapidly at that,”-then you’ll have to get used to it, you don’t get another name.”
“not true,” alec says, causing magnus to frown down at him. “when we get married they’ll have to call me ‘mr. lightwood-bane’.”
magnus can’t help the way his body freezes at that, and after a beat, alec seems to realize what he said. he lifts himself up so he’s facing magnus, eyes wide and mouth open.
“can we pretend i didn’t just say that?“ alec rushes out. “not because i don’t mean it but we just, we never really, i mean i don’t know if you-“
magnus leans in to kiss him, and alec eagerly kisses back, both of them getting lost in each other’s lips for a few moments.
“when we get married?“ magnus asks quietly, and the blush that colors alec’s cheeks is truly breathtaking.
“yeah, i mean, we haven’t really talked about it, but i want to marry you, someday, if that’s something you want, too.“
“of course it’s something i want, how could i not?“
alec’s smile is bright and unguarded, it’s the smile magnus would do anything for, and he knows his expression mirrors alec’s.
“i’m still going to propose, properly, with a ring and everything,“ alec says after a few moments, taking magnus’ hand in his.
“not if i beat you to it,“ magnus teases, but it does little to hide how full of light he feels at that moment, how loved he feels.
he’s going to marry this man one day and that is something not even lifetimes of memories can compare to.
