“What then, O! Great Bahamut!? What would you, with all your grace and wisdom, expect of your loyal servant now!? Should I kneel and endure this fate unquestioning!? That, for all your omnipotence, you cannot grant me a shred of mercy, but I should continue to be thankful!?
I like to think Ardyn would have little conversations out loud with Bahamut but it was always a very one-sided discussion….
this is hilarious bc when i started this blog like, 2 months ago, i really thought it was just going to be a side blog lmao. so anyways, i thought it would be fun to do a follow forever thing, but ALSO i need more mutuals so if you like this post (which i will tag with relevant stuff) i’ll check out your blog and we can maybe be mutuals :)

we got married wearing borrowed clothes (part one)
it was no surprise that downworlders and shadowhunters weren’t technically allowed to get married. now, that didn’t stop a select few here and there, but none of them were officiated by a silent brother, or recognized as valid to the clave.
now that alec was the head of the institute, he figured he would have some say in changing that.
“just because you wish to marry your…downworld lover,” imogen had stated, her voice like a shrill echo in the room. “doesn’t mean we can change the law for you. i’m sorry mr. lightwood, but the law is t-”
“the law is the law. i know. believe me, i know. and this doesn’t have anything to do with my desire to marry.” alec said, only half truthfully. he knew that uniting the shadowhunters and downworlders in any way would be a victory, so why not start with something that, who knows, might benefit him in the future?
“mr. lightwood, i simply cannot grant your request of taking this up with a jury. you may see yourself out.” inquisitor herondale motioned towards the door, and alec just sighed deeply before exiting.
he didn’t give up in his fight to try and make things right between the two worlds, and over the years he was proud to say that the relationship with the downworld was stronger than it had ever been.
the one thing he was never able to do, though? was the one thing that, as he got older, really started mattering to him.
until of course, one day, he didn’t care anymore.
it was after a long and frustrating day at the institute that he came home late to see magnus curled up on the couch, sleeping peacefully. it looked like he had fallen asleep over some work, so alec walked over to him, gently brushing some loose strands of hair out of his face.
“mm, alexander?” magnus asked groggily, and alec’s heart melted.
“shh, go back to sleep love, i didn’t mean to wake you.” alec’s voice was soft and soothing, and magnus blinked slowly, sleep still heavy in his eyes.
“w’nna cuddle you.” alec chuckled and squeezed next to him on their small couch, wrapping his arms happily around his boyfriend.
“you know, we have a very large, comfortable bed only a room away?” alec noted, and magnus, who had buried his head into alec’s chest, mumbled something that alec couldn’t make out.
they stayed like that in silence for a while, alec absentmindedly rubbing circles into magnus’s arm, until he fell asleep.
or at least, until alec thought he was asleep.
alec was half asleep himself, when magnus suddenly made a small noise in the back of his throat.
“alexander?” he asked, sleep thick in his voice.
“i love you.”
alec smiled then, kissing the top of magnus’s head and pulling him closer to his chest.
“i love you too, magnus.”
“no, i love you. more than i’ve ever loved anyone, ever.” magnus said casually, as if he were telling alec what he had for lunch rather than confessing his love.
“i want to wake up to you every day and i want to have stupid kids with you and i want it all. i love you.”
alec was unable to say anything, tears thick in his eyes, and he kissed magnus anywhere he could.
it wasn’t long after that they both fell asleep.
alec had been planning this day for three months now. he had considered going to izzy for help, but alec decided he wanted to do it all on his own. magnus was his, only his.
when he saw magnus standing by the restaurant, it was like alec was falling in love all over again.
“hey you.” magnus greeted with a smile, leaning in to plant a feather light kiss on alec’s lips.
alec was too nervous to speak, so he settled for a smile, grabbing magnus’s hand.
alec had made sure that they had a seat overlooking the river, where the skyline was just starting to light up as the sun went down.
they talked over dinner, just like any other date that they had. they laughed, kissed, and were content with each other. alec, however, felt like his stomach was doing backflips.
“are you alright, alexander?” magnus asked, voice full of concern as he reached over and squeezed alec’s hand.
“i’m fine. wonderful, actually.” alec said, smiling. this was it. he was going to propose.
“i love you.” he said, and magnus smiled.
“i love you, too. you sure you’re okay?”
“yes. better than okay.” alec said, taking a deep breath. “magnus, look. before i met you, i had… no one. okay, i had izzy and jace but it was different. i didn’t have anyone who understood me, who knew who i was, who…got me.” the words came tumbling out of his mouth and he couldn’t stop them.
“when i first met you, i knew that i loved you. alright, love is a strong word, but i knew that, given time, i would love you. and i am so privileged that i have gotten to love you. i don’t care what anyone in the world says, the clave, the downworld, anyone, i love you. more than i’ve ever loved anything.”
magnus was begining to understand now, and he opened his mouth to say something but alec stopped him.
“no, no let me finish before i loose the courage.” alec said, and magnus let out a chuckle.
“the point is, when shadowhunters find someone, it’s for life. and i’ve found you. and i love you. so…” alec stood up, and dropped down onto one knee, pulling out the box that he had hidden in his pocket. he looked up at magnus, who had tears in his eyes and blinked back tears of his own.
“magnus bane, will you marry me, alexander gideon lightwo-”
“yes!” magnus yelled, lurching forward to hug alec, causing them both to fall down in the process. they both laughed, and magnus leaned down to kiss alec all over his face. “yes, yes, yes, a million times yes.”
ALRIGHT ELLA SINCE I GUESS I’M SUCH A BIG NAME FANDOM BULLY , I’M GONNA BE THE ONE TO MAKE THE CALL OUT POST !!! are we ready guys ? this one is gonna be a doozy . hold on to your seats , because @LEGILLIMENCYY is definitely a stealer , and i’m sick of the way she has treated my good friend ally , as well as others on this stupid fucking website .
i had made a smaller post about this last night for my followers , but since this problem has continued to escalate , ella has given me no other choice . we are here now , in this toxicity called call out culture . i’m normally not a fan of it , but this time i had to speak up . ally is my friend , a long time friend at that . and when you fuck with her , you fuck with me .
so let’s start at the beginning , shall we ? the basis of everything you’ve stolen ? i say your ‘theme insp.’ is as good a place to start as any :
i just … wow . that is … that is some damn good‘inspiration’ you stole there , huh ? ripped off practically her entire edited agirlingrey code , right down to the font styles and link placements . i can’t even give you ps credit because even your bg image looks extremely similar to ally’s . so i guess kudos to you for knowing how to steal other people’s codes .
but you didn’t stop there , did you ? no , of course not !why would you ? you were already stealing her code , why not go ahead and steal some of her headcanon’s too ?
wow dude . just wow . did you even rewrite it ? or just copy / paste ? and yes , please make sure to look at the hovered dates on each : ally’s is from 6 months ago , while ella’s copied version dates back less than a week to even HOURS at least . you even stole her tag name , which is pretty sad .
and then , when you were finally called out on your stealing , you BLOCKED ally for calmly trying to talk to you , for ASKING you to take down HER content . it was only after i and a few others started sending messages that you BLOCKED US AS WELL , and then messaged ally with the most insincere , bullshit excuse ever heard ever up to date :
i see a lot of things wrong with this , so let’s just name them off , shall we ? 1 . ‘and none of us – with the exception of oc blogs – actually created these characters so to claim any kind of originality to anything is honestly bull.’ i just … what ? what kind of fresh hell is this ? that is like , the shittiest excuse ever made up , like ever . that’s like a 7 year old who knows they did wrong trying to back track and get out of the blame . i just want you to know , that every writer is laughing right now . we are all laughing , because that is honestly the stupidest thing i have ever fucking read in my entire life .
2 .‘but since you and your little group of friends are all worked up about it i’ll delete my headcanons and kind of start my blog over.’fuck , i would love to stop you right there , but there’s so much more i need to get to . um . ally’s friend group ISN’T little . there are loads of people on this site that have her back , and love her for being the person she is , not the ‘fake sickly sweet’ bitch you think she is . oh , and yes ella , i have the screenshot of that ask , too !you know , the one you deleted? let’s post that too , huh ?
oh wow , and look at all those vague posts there too ;newsflash , ella : that anon on the right , the one who called you worthless ? that wasn’t ally . ally doesn’t stalk your blog . i think you kind of have that backwards huh ? considering all your headcanon posts are hers from what , 6 months back ? i think that seems a little stalkerish , hmm ?
but i digress , getting back to your shitty excuse of an apology : 3 .‘but whatever. i’ll [ delete ? ] my headcanons and start fresh …’ so … they’re not technically yours , considering you weren’t the one who thought of them . and if you were going to delete them , why are they still on your blog ?why did you lie ?
listen ella , none of us wanted it come to this , but you made this . you did this to yourself . not only did you steal ally’s things and take extreme inspiration from her , but you lied about it , and dragged her name through the proverbial mud , and i for fucking one will not take that sitting down . so take down your stolen headcanons , make a theme that isn’t based off of someone else’s , and come up with your own goddamn things , or face my wrath . the next time i see this happening with you , i will report you to tumblr for theft and harassment . what you’ve done is childish , it’s pathetic and immature and unbecoming . i’m not sorry to drag your ass through the fucking dirt like you did ally and present you to the public :a dirty fucking thief with the attitude to match .
get off your goddamn high horse . no one here accepts the shit that you’re pulling , so there’s no need for your shitty self entitlement , k ?k .
I love DCTV Westallen!!! Their love story is very unique and as Grant said, unlike any other relationship. They love each other deeply and respect each other. Westallen is an example of what true love should look like. And what a healthy relationship should be. I’m so glad black girls watching the show can see what it looks like to be loved, respected and cherished by your significant other. Such a powerful and needed thing for black girls to observe.
