Do you have any thoughts or analysis about Magnus that have changed from season 1 to season 2? About the way he acts or behaves or headcanons for him? This is such a vague question, but I JUST ENJOY YOUR MAGNUS DISCUSSIONS. I always sit here like *chinhands*
aweoja this is such a cute comment ty! but that’s a really good question hmm. i think the major thing that changed for me was my interpretation of his fashion choices. in season 1, i assumed that they had him change his looks frequently as an inherent part of his character. it didn’t occur to me it was meant to be unusual for him until harry said it at wondercon and then season 2 confirmed it visually by giving him a more defined look. i’m glad it was something they did. i like him having a style that he’s clearly comfortable with: goatee, spiked hair, smoky eye, dark but rich colors.
the other is his drink of choice. s1 he mostly seemed to go for whiskey so i kind of just went with that as a preference but s2 established that’s what he breaks out when he’s having a rough time. when he’s drinking for pleasure his preference seems to be a classic martini. i mean he’ll have them when he’s taking the edge off, too – we see him drink it in 2x15 and 2x04 for example – but the whiskey seems to be more reserved for that specifically.
idk if these seem like superficial things but i actually think about it a lot just bc i love considering his habits/preferences. i find they say a lot about him and they’re usually the more mysterious things. like his core traits/personalities were established early on and will never change, but learning about his preferences is stuff that can be surprising and i like thinking about how things we learn about his likes/dislikes fit into his character.
