what she means: i… i still can’t believe star, in canon, actually fell for marco? i didn’t expect that? all this time, i could have sworn marco would be the one to do so. with episodes such as the blood moon ball… and camping trip… i honest to god thought marco was head over heels for her? jackie fell out of the plot for a while, and star always seemed so indifferent to marco (other than being a good friend)? but in the end it makes sense. who wouldn’t fall for marco. i know i would have. nefcy fucking caught me with my hands on my ass. she got me. she tricked me and it all makes so much sense and i’m Ready for what else is gonna happen in this show……. whew…..
her lips are a secret
one i’d never share
the same goes for her eyes
sometimes i have to look away
because i feel her inside
digging away to find
my deepest flaws
but she doesn’t care
well she doesn’t show it
sometimes i’ll sit down
and watch her from afar
thinking about how soft her skin
is to touch
or the feeling of her fingertips
gliding across my skin
and she’ll catch me staring
the corner of her lip will lift
into the biggest smile
and my heart will stop
just for a moment
to store the image of such beauty
deep inside me
so that i’ll never forget
Anakin’s Force Ghost: [watching very loud TV] Obi-Wan’s Force Ghost: [sitting next to him, wearing glasses and reading a book called Coming to Terms With Your Traumatic Life] Luke: [staring at them, annoyed] You know, eventually one of us is going to have to go talk to him. Anakin: [still watching TV, disinterested] …talk to who, son? Luke: …Ben, dad. Obi-Wan: [smiling] Why, I’m right here, Luke. And you can talk to me any time. Luke: You know who I’m talking about, Obi-Wan. Knock it off. Anakin: …don’t sass your Obi-Wan like that, Luke. Luke: [shutting off the TV] GUYS. BEN. DARK SIDE. LITTLE HELP HERE. Are you seriously just going to sit here and watch soap operas while the universe goes to hell again?! One of us has to try and talk some sense into him! I think it should be one of you. Anakin: [immediately] Not it. [looks at Obi-Wan] Obi-Wan: Ohhhh, no. I’ve put in my time trying to make people in this family see reason. I’m not helping that brat. It’s bad enough Leia gave him my name. Anakin: …there you go! He’s Ben, you’re Ben….you’re his, uh, Great Uncle? Just give him that face you always used to give me when I did something stupid. Obi-Wan: [makes a face] Anakin: That’s the one! There. See? You already know what to do. You’ve got this. Obi-Wan: [defeated sigh]
It’s a well known fact that Magnus can be an absolute idiot sometimes, so he literally ignores his giant crush on Alex until it makes life impossible to live with.
Like, he’ll walk into a room, see Alex, and promptly walk out.
He’s watched Alex fight and forgotten that he’s a part of the team, too, and gotten all his teammates killed.
He also asked Alex to “help him make a vase for his cousin.” Yeah, sure, Magnus. Make a vase for your cousin. Like that’s not a thinly-veiled “SPEND TIME WITH ME PLEASE”.
Anyway, one day he’s sitting in the library or something and Halfborn, Mallory, and TJ sit down and are like, “Magnus, we need to talk.”
Sam’s there, too. Just, she’s pretending to mind her own business.
Anyway, “Magnus, we need to talk,” happens. And all of them are like, “Go ask Alex out. You’re killing us here. LITERALLY.”
And Magnus is like, “What? Me? Have a crush? IMPOSSIBLE.”
And Mallory’s like, “I am not dying for this one more time. Do you know how hard it is to get rid of the headaches caused by arrows in the eye? I didn’t think so!”
So Magnus loses and “has to” ask Alex out.
So he walks up to Alex, who is sitting in her room doing pottery, as usual, and is like, “DoyouwanttogooutonadatewithmebeforetheworldendsorsomethingbecausemyfriendsthinkI’mliterallykillingthembywatchingyoufightandnotlookingwhereI’mpointingmyswordandIkindofthinkthiswouldbeforthebenefitoftheNineRealmsorsomething.”
Alex is obviously confused. What the hell? Was that even English? It didn’t sound like Old Norse.
And because Alex pretty much says whatever comes to mind, what comes out of her mouth is, “Was that English?”
So Magnus has to slow down and repeat everything again.
Cue the appearance of Sugar Glider Alex, who comes up when Alex gets nervous.
And Magnus is like, “Wave your tail once for yes, twice for no, like a seance.”
Alex turns back into Human Alex and gives him the best “What the fuck is wrong with you?” face she can possibly muster. Obviously it’s a yes, the question was just a little sudden.
And so Magnus spends the next week stressing about what he’s going to wear and where he and Alex should go, and “Are first dates ice skating and holding hands or sledding and knocking each other into the dirt?”
Mallory: “It’s summer, idiot.”
TJ: “I don’t think Alex ice skates.”
Halfborn: “There’s dragons on Thursdays!”
Magnus and Alex end up going hiking, because both of them like hiking. And then they end up at Hearth and Blitz’s place for a movie. Kind of like a double date with Magnus’ adoptive parents but… not?
Alex and Hearth get along really well. Alex asks Hearth to teach him how to swear in ASL, and Hearth is more than happy to oblige. Blitz and Magnus then make it a competition: Who can come up with the most outrageous sentence in ASL?
Hearth. Hearth can. No question. Hearth is the master of sentences that should never see the light of day. And he thrives on the light of day.
But Alex’s sentence isn’t bad. It’s definitely not something you’d say in front of polite company. Or company at all.
Magnus walks Alex back to his room, because that’s the sort of thing you’re supposed to do on a date, right?
Wrong. Alex turns right around and walks Magnus back to his door. Because he honestly doesn’t think Magnus won’t fall over his own two feet or get hit by a dragon. (See, Magnus? When you act like an idiot for weeks, everyone starts thinking you’re a disaster waiting to happen!)
And then there’s the whole bit of whether or not they should kiss at the door, because it’s just a first date and all that.
Alex decides yes. Magnus decides yes, too.
TJ, Mallory, Halfborn, and Sam have all gathered in the hall and are exchanging bets.
Magnus slams the door in all of their faces and Alex has the last laugh when Halfborn trips on his way back to his room, taking Mallory, TJ, and Sam down with him.
