“We should get a cat,” said Alec out of the blue and Magnus paused in the middle of the sentence he was reading.
They were both lounging on the sofa as the late afternoon sun swept through the loft, cloaking it in a warm golden haze. Magnus was reading a poetry book that Alec had bought for him a couple of months prior and he was completely engrossed in it. Alec had his head in Magnus’ lap, his legs stretching across the length of the sofa and his feet dangling over the edge.
Magnus looked over the top of his book at Alec beaming up at him and scoffed.
“We have plenty of cats,” replied Magnus, pointing to the balcony where almost every corner was home to the many cats that visited their place every day.
Alec sighed. “No, I mean our own.” Magnus smiled behind his book because a cat of their own was definitely not something Magnus would be opposed to. “I remember we used to have a cat in the Institute when I was younger but I can’t remember his nam-”
“Church?” asked Magnus with a frown.
“Church!” Alec exclaimed with raised eyebrows and a certain glint in his eyes. Magnus chuckled and nodded, fondly remembering the chaos that Church had been causing decades ago. That cat never really liked anyone.
Magnus picked up his book again and attempted to go back to reading when Alec grabbed his wrists and pulled his book down again. “Magnus, please!” he said quietly. “Just imagine a tiny, soft kitten curled up in our arms, how cute would that be?” Alec whispered pretending to stroke a cat in his arms.
Magnus bit his bottom lip and was laughing at this point. It was rare to see Alec gush over something like this. “Okay,” said Magnus simply, with a smirk.
“Really?” gasped Alec.
“Only if I get to name it,” replied Magnus and Alec smiled, leaning in to kiss Magnus on the cheek. Magnus’ eyes fell shut as he leaned into Alec’s face beside his own. Alec circled an arm around Magnus’ torso and let his head fall onto his chest.
It was only a couple of weeks later that Magnus and Alec had invited everyone over to celebrate the cat’s ‘birthday’ - as Magnus called it. But really it was just the first weekend that they both had free.
Clary and Simon had immediately rushed over to the cat, ignoring Magnus’ greetings. Simon scooped up the small ball of grey and white fur and brought him over to the others.
“What’s his name?” asked Simon, unaware of Jace rolling his eyes at his reaction to the cat.
“Chairman Meow,” replied Magnus, grinning. Alec bit his bottom lip and shook his head to stop himself from laughing out loud.
Clary’s gaze suddenly ripped away from the cat as she stared at Magnus with a confused yet knowing look. A small smile graced her face as she remembered the other Magnus she had met and his cats.
“Of course it is,” she mumbled to herself and Alec looked Magnus with a puzzled look to which Magnus could only shrug.
i hope you enjoyed, let me know what you think! if you have any prompts or scenarios for me, please head over to my ask box.
I already know I am going to offend some people out there when I make this post, but this whole thing with Blake Shelton getting sexiest man alive has made me really mad. You pick this baked chicken over all these men of color? Like literally there are so many beautiful men of color out there! “The Sexiest Man Alive” is a scam that is mostly dominated by white men! Denzel is the only African-American male I know of that has got this ridiculous title. Like what the hell? So I have made a small list of some men of color that I think could bless a cover of Peoples magazine:
(I picked people in my opinion that I thought fit the bill better than Blake Shelton)
(Ps. Peoples Magazine, you are a joke :))
Harry Shum Jr.
All of these are in my opinion. I am just tired of American Media being mainly “white“. America is supposed to be a “melting pot” but it’s not. White ran media is over everything. There are multiple people of color out there and giving Blake Shelton Sexiest Man Alive in my opinion was brainless and stupid. There are so many other celebrities they could have chosen.
