vilde and magnus’ relationship started out as vilde trying to prove to others, and most importantly herself, that she could enjoy having sex with a guy. they tried having sex that night but magnus got incredibly nervous and it just didn’t happen. even if she didn’t want to admit it, vilde was very relieved. since magnus had a huge crush on vilde he kept texting and calling her, and they started hanging out a lot. at first vilde’s reasons for hanging out with magnus was just to see if she could enjoy having a boyfriend, but she grew to really like him. magnus was, right from the start, very open about his problems with his mum and other issues he had. this made vilde slowly feel more comfortable about talking about her own troubles. she found she could open up to magnus like she couldn’t to anyone else. after a while, she told magnus that she thought she might be gay. magnus was surprised, but fully accepted it and was always there for her if she needed someone to talk to. his love for her extended past wanting to have a hot girlfriend, and so he was alright with not being romantically involved with her anymore, as long as that would make her happy.
and that is how magnus became one of vilde’s very best friends and her beard until she felt ready to come out.
