Imagine: Season 2B, Clary and Jace storm into Magnus’ loft, but they find it empty. No Magnus, no Alec. Nobody.
After calling for Magnus in vain, Jace calls his parabatai to ask where Magnus is. They need him to solve stupid problem #478374.
“Oh,” Alec says, almost disinterested. “Magnus is somewhere in the middle east, for a warlock convention. I have no idea when he’s coming back.”
“This is serious, Alec! Text him!”
Jace hangs up, cursing and desperate. Clary groans, looking around in desolation.
Cut to Magnus and Raphael at a beauty spa in Paris, having their fingernails done and their backs, massaged. Magnus’ phone buzzes.
On the screen, there’s a text from Alec. Hey, hope u r enjoying ur vacation. Love u.
Magnus just smiles and texts him back. Thank you, darling! I love you too.
