i didn't even think of robert cheating at first i thought magnus was talking about how robert and maryse lied to their kids for years about not being members of the circle rlfnelrnfelnflnerfnlkref
I think it was a reference to all those things tbh waoejfwoa the Lightwoods don’t really have a reputation of being honest about much. In all seriousness, though, it’s very telling that this is the point Magnus chooses to attack – like it’s definitely a harsh blow but it isn’t one that came out of nowhere. Magnus fell for Alec in large part for his honesty. That has always been the consistent thing about Alec – he was always upfront and honest even when his honesty meant he said some foolish things before he could think better of it. Alec has never once lied to Magnus until now.
And honesty is something Magnus values deeply, especially after having been jerked around for decades by Camille but also just in general. You can tell from the friends he keeps, people like Ragnor, Luke, and Raphael who don’t hesitate to tell him what’s on their mind even if they’re not exactly delicate about it. (We haven’t met Catarina on the show yet, but she’s much the same in personality, too, in the books.)
On top of everything else he’s been through and what this means for the Downworld, it’s why Magnus’ reaction is so severe. Like, he was really out for blood and even Luke had to tell him to chill the fuck out. It’s understandable why Magnus lost it, but Luke’s voice of reason isn’t wrong: Alec is trying and objectively, we know he’s a more trustworthy ally than the Seelie Queen. But while it’s true that they’re very powerful, it’s also worth noting that Magnus’ snap decision was to ally with the only Downworlders technically incapable of lying. At its core, this is what it comes down to – that someone he trusted so deeply lied to him.
hey guys so some of you might know that today was the 1 year anniversary since i last updated l&e and as shitty as that makes me feel, i really wanted to post something l&e related for you guys. unfortunately i couldn’t finish the actual chapter since i literally haven’t had the down time to do so, but i thought maybe a little teaser would be better than nothing. it’s really short and is grossly unedited (and will probably be changed a bit in the final cut) but it’s something! love yall <3
alfie i just had a thought: what if some sea monsters we think we see, you know, the longnecky or squid lookin ones, are actually just the erect penises of much larger, more bizarre monsters lurking below the surface of the water?
I’m supposed to be studying for exams, so naturally I’m doing everything but that. I was thinking about how Germans and Americans use the word “love”, and English speakers in general throw the word around a lot more casually than Germans do.
Prime (and enetertaining) example: I once told my students that I loved them, because they always make me laugh, and so many eyebrows shot up that I had to explain “In America we say we love everything. Like I can say I love you the same way I would say I love pizza or something.” Most of the students were satisfied with the answer, but one said “but pizza is so much better than us”. I will never forget that day XD
Long story short, you’re really professing your love for something when you use “lieben” in German, so make sure it’s serious XD
So, on the 10/16/97 Dylan weighed 180 pounds, during his autopsy, he weighed 135-140 pounds. That means that in the space of 1 and a bit years, Dylan lost 40/45 pounds (around 3 stone). I don’t know why, but this makes me feel so sad. He clearly wasn’t eating properly and his depression made it difficult for him to even function properly. His height (6'3") and his weight, that can be super dangerous. I’m surprised no one realised.
