i feel you alec

Do you think Alec panicked a little bit behind his N7 badass veneer when they landed on Habitat 7? Because one child was in a coma, and the other just fell from a fucking shuttle that split in half and you can’t tell if they survived because their SAM link shut down?

Like, I just want to know if there was this brief moment where Alec 110% regretted the Andromeda Initiative because it could have taken both of his children.

prompt: alec/magnus helping the other shave/trim. <3 (they have to go somewhere super nice, or they were on vacation and coming back home, etc) or do you think Magnus does it with magic for both of them?

the loft was aglow that morning, the sunlight seeming something close to heavenly every time it touched them as they shifted around the room, taking their time getting ready. they couldn’t amble, not really, they couldn’t take their time but it felt like time itself had gone slow. it felt like the world had gone syrupy and suddenly they had all the time in the world, the clock gone still and the morning letting them breathe.

magnus stood in the doorway to the bathroom, slowly buttoning the shirt settled on his shoulders and watched as alec brushed his teeth, still undressed with his hip pressed against the sink. he was watching magnus in the mirror, head tipped to the side, like he had all the time in the world. magnus smiled as he did each button up slow, resting there against the door jamb and he watched as the morning light caught on alec’s hair and the side of his face, lighting one of his eyes up, something closer to green. he looked sleepy, sweet, his facial hair messy and heavy across his jaw and around his mouth, just a little bit wild.

time dripped on, alec spit in the sink and the water ran. and then after a beat he turned and pressed close, leaning over magnus’s hands to kiss his mouth. his mouth was soft and minty. magnus’s eyes dipped shut, his buttons forgotten as he reached up and dragged his fingers through the beard alec had grown over the past couple of days. he hummed against it and then pulled back, rubbing his thumbs over alec’s jaw.

“do you still want a trim?” he asked and there was infinite affection in alec’s eyes as he nodded, slipping his fingers underneath magnus’s shirt and closing the space to press his nose against magnus’s cheek.

  • Heterosexuals: I think I'm in love with this person I've never spoken to, they're hot
  • Yall: nice
  • Magnus and Alec: *say I love you after clearly having feelings for each other for 2 seasons, dating for a while, spending lots of time learning about each other and comminicating as well as facing the thought of losing each other not once but twice*
  • Yall: idk man it seems a little rushed to me

“who are you?" 

“there’s nothing to be ashamed of alec" 

“i don’t know what you’re talking about”

"what about love? even shadowhunters fall in love, alec” 

“i know you feel what i feel”

“you don’t have any clue what i feel. so back off”

"love? no-" 

"dont push me away" 

“i hear uh- relationships… they take effort”

“i’m all for effort”

“it’s rare i’ve ever felt this way about someone”

"i love you" 

"i love you too”

Due to the fact that I've been hearing shit about these specific characters lately:

Raphael isn’t evil, his people are being killed by Camille, who Simon released after he warned him not to.

Alec isn’t an asshole, everything is going downhill for him and unlike the others, it’s harder for him to cope with things. (Furthermore, his sexuality is valid STOP ERASING IT BY SHIPPING HIM WITH WOMEN)

Clary isn’t weak, this is all new to her and she’s trying her best to learn.

Simon isn’t clingy, he’s been in love with Clary his whole life and wants to protect her and care for her.

Luke is important, he’s the only good parent in the show and he isn’t even Clary’s biological dad. Not to mention, he went a against his whole clan to help Jace get to Alec, anddd has been helping Simon cope with everything since he first turned.

Magnus is more than just Malec, he is his own character, and he needs to be appreciated because let’s be honest here, all your faves would be dead if it wasn’t for him. He’s a badass who didn’t earn the title of ‘High Warlock of Brooklyn’ for nothing. He’s also the sweetest fucking character (don’t fight me on this) he’s helped so so many people and he’s so intelligent and understanding.

Izzy is more than just looks, she is a strong and independent lead female character, she is a badass and can probably shred you to pieces. :))

I’m Ready To Breathe - Short Malec Fic

He couldn’t fathom. 

Alec couldn’t fathom the fact that he was lost. In space, in time, in his mind. He was gone. Dust. Air. He’s physically with it, but his mind is a desert island. It’s so unfilled.

He was scared. He didn’t know how to react to feeling and thinking nothing. What does one do when they’ve lost the ability to come to conclusions? When they’ve lost the ability to process their actions. When they feel mentally… powerless?

“I… have have to go.” Alec breathed out to Izzy as she watched his brain unscrew.

“Where to?”

“Magnus. I have to go to Magnus. I need to feel something.”

“Alec, you know that mother was just being the stern person she’s always been. Don’t take her words to heart, I’m still here.” Izzy explain with an emotion filled expression taking over her face. He knew she cared about him, he just had to get away from the place that participated in the scene that was just caused.

“I know. I know you are… I just can’t be here right now.”

Izzy held her breath and Alec could see through her straight expression that she wanted to deepen the topic of comfort. But she didn’t. She simply nodded her head.

Alec gave her a quick nod of appreciation for giving him space and he left the institute without another word spoken.


Magnus was sorting through his necklaces when he heard the knock on the door. It was subtle and light. The three knocks that were demonstrated possessed a simple pattern. Something Magnus could recognize every time.

It was Alec.

Magnus dropped what he was doing instantly and headed towards the door. He took a deep breath before he opened it, then did it with one swift motion.


Magnus knew right off the bat that something was wrong. Alec’s face was flushed and his eyes looked heavy. His cheeks shined with red and his posture was weak. Alec had been crying, and Magnus needed to know why.

“Hey. I-uh… want to talk.” Alec stuttered out, his face still as blank as his mind.

“Why of course, sit down dear.”

Alec dropped his jacket to the ground and walked to the couch knowing that Magnus wouldn’t mind, and he didn’t. He was far too concerned with what Alec was feeling rather than what he was doing.

“It’s my mother.”

“Figures, Maryse is insufferable.”

“I needed to get out of that place. I needed to be somewhere where I felt safe.” Alec mumbled, but he couldn’t be more clear.

“So you came here. You can talk to me. Always.” Magnus expressed as he sat down next to Alec, offering him a comforting hand on his thigh. He wanted to show his love without it being too much, knowing that the main focus was Alec and why he was hurting, not their relationship.

“She told me that I’m hurting the family name. I’m breaking honor and I’m stripping all aspects of loyalty.”

Magnus was about to chime in, until Alec turned to him with a face of… actually, Magnus couldn’t tell. Alec looked so lost. It scared him.

“I don’t understand why everything has to be so planned all the time. What on earth ever happened to plot twists?” Alec tried to joke, but both him and Magnus knew what the topic was at hand.

“Why did she say those things, if I may ask.” 

Alec paused. Magnus saw his walls tearing down through his beautiful hazel eyes. Alec was afraid.

“She… she was referring to you. To my interest in you.” Alec muttered with a single tear falling down his cheek. Magnus instantaneously reached out to whip the tear away. A tear that represented not only heartache, but fear.

“You listen to me loud and clear when I say this. Just because you chose to confide in someone your mother doesn’t approve of, doesn’t make you any less of a man you are. You’re outstanding. The qualities you obtain never fail to bring surprise to my everyday life.” Magnus couldn’t have shown anymore emotion than he was now. It was physically impossible. His love was never ending and when he talked to Alec, every inch of his soul was just as involved as he was.

“I didn’t just choose to confide in you, I chose to love you.” Alec paused. “… I don’t regret it, despite the hatred that’s being thrown at me.”

“Alexander, don’t misinterpret poor judgment as hate. As much as I loathe your mother, I know what kind of women she is. She’s all about family. Give her time.”

Alec held his stare with Magnus and never once broke contact. Everything in this world was just so damn confusing for him, but Magnus seemed to be the only thing that was clear.

“As for the first part of what you said… just know that when I put my love in you, it was all selfless. I didn’t know what you had to offer on your part and it didn’t matter, because I only wanted what was best for you. If you chose to stay in hiding, or go through with the wedding, I would’ve still loved you. Nothing can break what I feel for you. Not even all the magic in the world.” Magnus couldn’t be more vulnerable than he was within this moment. His admiration for Alec was burning through the walls that were built around his heart, and pouring out of his mouth like a waterfall.

“Now I will admit… you loving me back is a fantastic feeling, and I’m really soaking it up.” Magnus chuckled and Alec let out a smirk, which made Magnus melt.

“How could I not love you?” Alec put his hand to Magnus’ face and let his thumb stroke his cheek. “You’re magical. Not just because your a warlock, that actually has nothing to do with what I’m saying. You’re just… you’re so out of this world. I’ve never met someone like you. Someone so powerful yet so graceful. You won me over the first time I met you, I just didn’t know how to let myself accept something for me.”

Magnus saw it. He finally saw a specific emotion spread across Alec’s face and it looked like his mind was finally working again. Like he wasn’t trapped in emptiness. Like he knew what to think again. It was all love. Every ounce of it.

“And I’m glad you did, Alexander. You deserve to let yourself feel and grow on your own terms. I’m just forever grateful that you chose to show yourself through me.”

With that, Alec’s other hand reached out to Magnus’ face and he leaned in to find his lips. Alec wanted the sentiment, and he craved to find it in Magnus.

As their lips connected, the kiss screamed passion. It wasn’t fast. It possessed meaning that no words could ever explain. No tongues dared to enter each others mouths, their lips just danced in a steady rhythm. It was almost choreographed, they way their lips knew what to do with one another’s.

Magnus gripped onto the small of Alec’s back, holding him for dear life. The kiss only lasted for a brief moment, but with that simple action, they felt as if their relationship was being described. All the desire, all the want, it was evident.

They both pulled apart slowly and together. Their foreheads leaned against one another’s as Alec’s mouth formed into a smile.

“Stay here with me.” Magnus breathed out, his voice almost getting caught up in his breath.

“I can’t say no to you.” Alec let out, finally understanding what he needed. He needed all that Magnus offered. No words from his mother or stereotypes that follow his family name could lead him away from knowing and desiring that. All he cared about was that he was with the one person he’ll love forever.

He was finally ready to breathe.


Magnus sighed. “Alexander, I’ve been alive for hundreds of years. I’ve been with men, been with woman- with faeries and warlocks and vampires, and even a djinn or two.”
“How many other people?” Alec asked.

Magnus shook his head. I can’t count, and it doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is how I feel about you.”
