There was something infinitely playful about your relationship with Michael. While he tended to be serious and business like around his family, it was always different with you. You loved to tease each other. You loved to make each other laugh- even if it came at the cost of creating utter chaos.
No really, I do. I like smiles. I think they’re contagious. I think random smiles make the day go a little easier. And this is coming from someone with “resting bitch face”, but if someone smiles at me I smile back. So if I ever comment on your picture that you’ve blogged and say “I love your smile!” I’m not hitting on you. It’s a genuine compliment. And it probably made my day better. Just a random thought.
*while always acknowledging 2x7 was a misstep* While I still hate that episode with passion, I actually love the omamori part. It was both heartbreaking and heartwarming. And thanks to 2.18 now I can also enjoy the kiss (the second one). Now I feel like it's eager and cute, all thanks to 2.18.
Honestly the worst part about 2x7 is how it went from something as sweet and perfect and adorable as Alec and Magnus stepping out of that portal like they’re actual kings and Alec giving Magnus the omomari… to… that where they literally fade to black/cut to next scene and never show us malec again. Like. Why. Why. Omg. It actually makes it so much worse.
But honestly, I’m with you. 2x18 makes 2x7 much easier to watch. I can now love and appreciate eager-af!Alec just grabbing Magnus’ face and making his move. And tbh that makes me happy because it was super cute- up until they decided that cutting that scene with Alec pushing Magnus back into the bedroom without addressing Magnus’ concerns and asserting only his own wants was the way to go.
I think they listened to our complaints. I think the first time flashback wasn’t planned but was added after. I think it’s important to appreciate that they listen to the fans and that they acknowledge the importance of Magnus and Alec and their relationship. Like, they aren’t perfect, but you can see an obvious willingness and hope to improve.
I love your writing so much! It makes my day to read it :) I have a prompt: Robron's teenage son is going on his first date with a boy and is getting nervous. They offer fatherly advice, in their own way 💖
Sorry anon, this is nothing like you asked for but I just couldn’t make that work, so I hope this is a decent enough substitute!
“He’ll be alright you know.” Aaron sounds confident as he hands Robert his mug, sitting himself down on the sofa, feet pushing under Robert’s thigh as he always did. One look at his face said otherwise though.
“He looked nervous though.”
“I think that might have been embarrassment at your ‘advice’.” Aaron couldn’t help tease him. The more nervous one hadn’t been Jake and Aaron smiled.
“You, doing the whole protective Dad routine. Think you scared that kid half to death.” He quickly pulled his feet away as Robert’s fingers started to work their way to the soles of his feet. “Pack it in!”
“He seemed alright though, didn’t he?” He moves closer to Aaron, lifting his legs to rest over his lap. “Jake I mean?”
“Yeah, course. So, what do you want to do for the rest of the evening? Telly, pub, or early night?”
“Oh no, we’re not having an early night. We’re waiting up for him to come home.”
“Robert Sugden, we are not! I think you’ve embarrassed him enough. Besides I’m not sitting here all night.” He kicked his heel back into Robert’s thigh. “So, you can either come to the pub with me or you can sit here on your own watching the minutes tick over to half past ten.”
“Why are you not more…”
“What? Worried? He’s on a date, Robert, he’s not off to war. It’s not going to be the last one I’m guessing. You can’t be like this every time.” He sits up properly. “What is it?”
“I don’t know. Same as when Michael started dating. They’re all grown up. Won’t be long before they don’t need us at all.”
“Don’t be daft. They’re always going to need us. Right, come on old man, pub.”
Because I went through a funk and they sent me such sweet messages and they’re just amazing people in general and I want to thank them for being just the best girls and the best of friends a girl could ask for. I love them and I just want to say thank you guys!
