I know this probably goes without saying but Alec and Magnus as individuals are so fascinating and complex. Each with such well-rounded, real struggles and stories. They are both so strong in different ways and vulnerable in others. It would take me far too long to name all of their unique qualities that make them the amazing, fleshed out characters that they are, mostly in part thanks to the insightful performances of Matt and Harry. But the depth that they have seriously blows me away. Alone, they are some of the most interesting, flawed, intriguing characters I’ve ever seen. And the fact that they are in love with each other and compliment each other and help fill in each other’s missing pieces in this sweet, chaotic, inexplicable RIGHT-ness is so incredible and we are so lucky to have these characters in our lives.
Did Annabeth refer to Percy as her best friend somewhere in HoO? Did I make that up? Because I was just thinking about how it made me happen when she referred to Percy as her best friend rather than boyfriend because even though their relationship status has changed and some aspects of their relationship have changed, that never will and now I'm rethinking everything because I'm wondering if that moment really happened bc I can't even pinpoint when. Even if it didn't happen, this is still true.
