how to carry your dragoon (who will eventually just accept it and let you do so)
I drew this before 3.3 because I was fully convinced we were never going to get aymeric carrying estinien in canon yet here we are, canon happened, the thing happened (this picture set was also @hyth-ffxiv‘s idea blame them)
aymeric is very strong. very strong arms. I approve greatly.
What felt like the entire downworld roamed around Magnus’ loft as the party went on. Magnus, going to the different guest who have arrived making small talk with them, just trying to be a good host when a slow song comes on.
Magnus excuses himself to find Alec and once he does he tries to get his attention. Alec seems to have not noticed Magnus and continues to shift uncomfortable from foot to foot as his anxious eyes fixate on his parents, Magnus soon realizes this and walks back to his guests, avoiding Alec for the rest of the party.
Once the guest have left and the party has ended, Magnus and Alec are left alone in the large loft. Magnus was putting some dishes in the sink and throwing away leftover trash when he realized that Alec was not there with him. He finds him on the balcony staring out into the city.
“Im sorry I avoided you,” Alec starts still not looking at Magnus “Its not that ashamed of you…Im just scared” and with those three words Magnus understood.
With a snap of his fingers the slow song from earlier started up, Alec turned around, confusion spread across his face. “May I have this dance? Magnus asks with an outstretched hand.
Alec looks at his hand and then up to Magnus’ face, with a small smile he takes the outstretched hand and Magnus pulls him in. Alec throws his long arms over Magnus’ shoulders and burying his head into the older mans neck as Magnus holds him close by his waist.
The two stayed this way dancing to the music under the stars in comfortable silence and it was then that they both knew that even despite what the clave said, despite Alec’s family’s disapproval, despite every challenge Valentine has yet to bring. That they’d be ok.
