WHAT IF MAGGIE SECRETLY PLAYS AN INSTRUMENT OMFG. AND WE ALL KNOW ALEX SINGS, SO LIKE.... SANVERS DOING MUSIC SHIT TOGETHER........ Fuck I need this to be canon so bad. I really hope Maggie plays guitar or something oml
I have this headcanon that whenever Maggie was kicked out of her house she only grabbed a backpack full of clothes and her old 6 string she used to play when she was little. And if you look in her house it’s tucked in the back corner of her closet and she only takes it out to strum a bit whenever she’s feeling particularly upset about something because music is good and music is pure and music was there for her when no one else was.
And one day alex was looking for a change of clothes or something and she spotted this old guitar in the back of her girlfriends closet but she only frowns at it and doesn’t mention anything to maggie. Until one day after Maggie had a case involving a child that was abandoned somewhere because they were no longer accepted by their parents Maggie came home and cracked open a bottle of whiskey and alex found her ¼ way through the bottle on the couch halfheartedly strumming through some random cords just so the house wouldn’t be so quiet. But alex knows that feeling of sadness and despair so she just sits there and listens to her girlfriend strum and when the song starts to sound familiar Alex gently sings along to Piece by Piece by Kelly Clarkson and eventually when the song is over Maggie just breaks down into Alex’s hold and they just sit like that for the rest of the night, with Maggie holding the last piece of her old home in her own arms, and being held in the arms of her new one.
