Malec battle headcanon
Okay, so malec is definitely a confirmed #powercouple and I’m so down to see a scene with them fighting together. But I also think it could be amazing if in reality they weren’t the most efficient team when fighting together because they would be way more concerned with the other person’s safety than their own. Like Alec would be too busy guarding Magnus’ back to notice the attacks coming at him, and the same would be true for Magnus so it just gets confusing for the rest of them. And Jace and Izzy and others have to save their asses on the reg and they’re salty about it. I mean obviously Magnus and Alec are great fighters, but some things are more important, you know? So neither of them are that sorry when they get yelled at after missions. Nobody can stay mad at them too long either because it’s actually pretty sweet, even if it’s annoying. But eventually they decide that they need to separate them during battles because they’re too easily distracted. And Magnus and Alec aren’t happy but they agree anyway, and then after each mission we get the relieved hugs like we saw in 2x10 because they’re just so happy the other one is okay.
