listen i know ive cried about this before but the latest episode just reinforced my need for malec dancing
it could be a slow, intimate. the lights are low and the music soft in the background. they’d been cuddling on the couch - magnus reading and alec lying with his head on magnus’ lap - when alec hears a song he knows magnus likes start to play. sure enough he starts humming and alec grins before getting to his feet and holding out his hand. magnus tossing his book to one side with a flourish that makes alec laugh as magnus gets up and put’s an arm around alec’s waist. alec lightly nuzzling the side of magnus’ head. trading whispers and warm kisses as they move from actually dancing to just swaying in the middle of the loft. as the minutes tick by all semblance of any dance form is lost and eventually they’re just hugging and swaying, hands painting patterns on each other’s backs.
OR it could fast and happy and a little silly. it’s been a long day; alec had had nothing but meetings so he’s a little tense and fidgety. magnus is much the same - peace negotiations between two different gangs of water spirits had been tedious (”i’m not having sushi again this century” “not if you’re living with me you’re not. i love sushi” “more than you love me??” “it’s honestly a tie” - cue magnus throwing a pillow at alec’s head while they both laugh)
and when they’re doing paperwork later on magnus suddenly notices alec’s foot tapping to the song that’s playing on the record player; upbeat and jazzy. in a flash magnus is pulling alec to his feet and blasting the furniture to one side of the room. “magnus what -” alec begins but is cut off by magnus twirling him out and then bringing him back in so his back is against magnus’ chest. “dance with me” he whispers as the music begins to increase in volume; the record player sparkling blue. alec doesn’t even hesitate before spinning around and grabbing magnus’ hands and dragging him into the middle of the living room as the both laugh. (matt said he could swing dance. i bet u they swing dance)
hey archy. in a year im wanting to go off to college to be an architect (something ive been wanting to do and become for a long time) and right now im concerned with what i can be doing to maybe improve my skills with becoming an architect. i know drawing is the main way to go but im horrible at it and its hard to get ideas down on paper. ive been mainly using (i know this will sound dumb) the sims 4 for small ideas but is there anything you recommend for me to do? (love your blog btw!!!)
I would keep working at drawing by hand, for your own improvement, and sims 4, if that is the way you have found works for you. Download a starter 3d modeling software like sketchup and play around with it. Beyond that, travel if you can and read about things that you are curious about (including design,architecture and art) but don’t stress up too much about being ready for architecture school, any preconceptions you might have will probably go out the window in the first month.
Just remember, architecture is not about making “pretty” buildings, is about solving problems and improving the lives of the buildings’ users.
