I really love that Mark explained Dark fully in his live stream. While I really enjoy how Jack’s Anti is a persona patch worked from different fan ideas, and there isn’t a clear answer to what he is exactly, hearing the process Mark went through, from taking the character seriously to making sure he got the voice right, was really interesting.
me: Magnus has never once touched Alec without his consent. Even when he shushes him his finger hovers above Alec’s lips. Even the night before Alec’s wedding he uses magic on Alec to show him what love feels like instead of actually touching him and doing so (also side note he has never used magic on Alec until this point in the show when they have gotten to know each other and when he knows that Alec feels the same way he does).
Magnus may make suggestive comments and/or flirty gestures but once Alec tells him to back off he does. Episode 9, for example. When Magnus asks Alec if he could look at his wound Alec says that he’s fine. Magnus then persists because he cares about Alec and doesn’t want to see him get hurt, but then when Alec tells him he’s alright in a firmer tone of voice that clearly indicates that he doesn’t want him to, he doesn’t. Skip to Episode 11. Magnus says he’ll do Alec “pro bono” in a suggestive tone, but once Alec changes the subject and makes it clear that he’s not interested, Magnus drops it and moves on to discuss the bow and quiver.
Whenever Magnus offers Alec drinks, he never insists or forces him to actually drink it. They have only had two scenes like this in Season 1. The first scene was in Episode 6 where Magnus holds up two drinks and asks Alec if he wants a drink break. And Alec clearly makes the decision that he’s going to accept it by standing up and taking the drink from Magnus. Move to Episode 12 when Magnus tells Alec to come to his loft and magically makes a glass full of wine appear in his hand. Alec then says “I didn’t come to drink” and so on and puts the glass down and Magnus doesn’t persist even though he just told him that he hates drinking alone. Bonus is when he tells Alec that if he says that he loves Lydia he’ll stop pursuing him. Magnus persists after that and starts talking about symptoms of love only because Alec does not and cannot say it. If Alec had told him that he loves Lydia, as much as it would have hurt, Magnus would have given up, as he clearly indicated.
Magnus does not take from Alec just for his benefit, unlike Camille with Simon. While he doesn’t want Alec to get married because he’s interested in him, he knows how much it will affect Alec for being stuck with someone he will never love and how it will affect Lydia in the exact same way. He’s not chasing after Alec after the engagement is announced just for his own personal gain. He’s trying to also help someone who is conflicted between following his head or his heart and trying to stop him from making possibly the worst mistake of his life.
And lastly, the kiss. Magnus shows up at the wedding, yes, but he lets Alec choose what happens next. He makes it clear that he will go if Alec wants him to, therefore implying that whatever Alec asks him to do he will do it. Magnus shows up at the wedding to show Alec that he is fighting for him and that he likes him, but he respectably waits for Alec to make his move. And then when Alec starts walking towards him he doesn’t move an inch and he doesn’t even touch Alec until after Alec grabs him and kisses him. He only touches Alec after Alec touches him.
Even after the kiss Magnus still does not intrude into Alec’s space. He doesn’t try to make physical contact with him or make suggestive comments or anything like that.
Magnus Bane is flirty. He is sometimes suggestive and makes drinks. But he knows boundaries and respects them and is aware when he may be crossing them slightly and backs off. He is not a predator. If you want an example of a predator, look at Camille, who clearly takes for her own benefit without consent from the other person and does not respect boundaries in the slightest.
Magnus Bane is understanding and beautiful and kind. He does not harass Alec into liking him nor is he a predator.
concept: we dance the night away. you swoon when my hands find your hips, pushing you into the rhythm. we laugh freely and somewhere in the middle of that i press a gentle kiss on your neck, then your jaw, and finally your lips. My hands never leaving your waist, and we both find ourselves falling in love all over again. without them. we are in love.
*in a dark alley with a trench coat* Hey, can I please get the Rfa+V+saeran reacting to an Mc who has acne scars on their face?? Thank youuuuuuuuuu!
A/N: Hey Nonnie! I hope this as good as you wanted (if any

“I can’t leave her alone for five minutes,” E'Dawn grumbled. All he’d done was go to the restroom, and by the time he came back, two random guys had decided to make themselves comfortable in the booth with you.
He was a little proud (okay, really proud) that he had such a beautiful girlfriend as you, who could make the whole town jealous that you were dating E'Dawn. But apparently these two dumbos weren’t aware of that fact.
“Hey babe, is our food here yet?” He asked, a little extra swagger in his step as he walked over and slid into the seat next to you.
“So what do you say? I’ll pick you up Friday at 7?” One of the guys asked, ignoring E'Dawn completely. Rude.
“Sorry, but my boyfriend and I already have plans,” you replied.
The guys eyed E'Dawn critically. “Come on gorgeous, you can do better than him,” one of them laughed.
E'Dawn abruptly grabbed your hand and pulled you out of the booth. “Why don’t you wait for me in the car, babe? I’ll go see if they can make our order takeout,” he said.
You agreed, although you were fuming at how they’d insulted your boyfriend. “At least he’s a gentleman, unlike you,” you told the two guys angrily before you walked out.
Five minutes later, the guys who’d been bothering you came running full speed out of the restaurant. E'Dawn walked out after them, nonchalant, with the takeout boxes.
“What did you do to them?” You asked when E'Dawn got in the drivers seat of the car.
“Just reminded them not to mess with my girl,” he replied, eyes twinkling mischievously. You felt heat rising to your cheeks and broke eye contact with him.
“You’re my girl, and that means I protect you,” E'Dawn said firmly, pulling you towards him for a quick, passionate kiss. “No monkeys are gonna steal you away while I’m around.”
“Now let’s go home and watch a movie while we eat,” he suggested, handing you the takeout boxes and then starting the car. You couldn’t help chuckling a bit as the car passed the two idiots from earlier, panting and looking around nervously several blocks from the restaurant. It was nice to feel so loved and protected.
(I hope you liked it, I’m really nervous about it.) ••• Ari
“Don’t move, you’ve got a spider in your hair.” “Did you hear about the snake that escaped a few blocks down from here?” “Great, the elevator door just jammed. Tell me you’ve got your phone on you.” “Wow, this is really high up. I don’t think I like this.” “You didn’t say this gig would be so crowded… Would it spoil the experience to stand at the back?” “Are you okay? It’s not that high up, really. Come and look, the view is beautiful.” “Don’t panic, just don’t look at it. The drip’s important if you want to get better.” “Wow, it’s really dark in here.” “If you would’ve told me you were so scared of water, I would have taken you to a movie instead.” “I didn’t know this movie was going to be so bloody. I think I’m going to faint.” “Are you alright? You seem very nervous. First time flying?” “What was that?! Was it thunder? Oh no, oh… I really don’t like this.” “What are you so afraid of? It’s just a bit of water.” “Look, even if you do fail it’s not the end of the world, okay?” “What’s going on? Why are you in such a panic?!” “Don’t worry! It was just a small mouse and I can’t see any droppings. It was probably just lost, okay?” “He doesn’t bite, he’s just happy to see you. Why don’t you say hello to him and he’ll leave you alone. Really, that dog is harmless!” “I think I’m going to die. What if I die? I don’t want to die.” “Shh, calm down. You’re in a panic. You need to try to breathe normally.” “Did you check the gas? I think I smell something.” “I don’t know what it is, but it’s big and it’s got many legs.” “I can’t go to the doctor, okay? I just can’t and you can’t make me!” “So, on the one hand you’re afraid you’ve got a deadly illness and on the other hand you’re afraid of doctors.” “We all grow old. Why are you making such a big deal about it? It’s just a birthday, it doesn’t mean anything.” “Calm down, it’s okay. The fireworks are over now. The banging has stopped. You can take your hands off your ears now.” “Why do you hoard all this stuff? It wouldn’t hurt to get rid of some of it.” “The sharks are behind glass, they can’t get to you and you should really see this. Come on, you’ll be fine.” “You could’ve told me you were afraid! I wouldn’t have thought any less of you.” “So, why does this scare you so much? Did something happen to you or something?” “I think I heard something downstairs.” “So, you’re saying you don’t want to be with me because you’re scared of committing, not because you don’t like me?” “Is this too much? If you’re too afraid to do it, you can tell me.” “I’m just so afraid of ending up alone. And it’s weird because I think about it all the time. That’s not normal, right?” “It’s just a presentation, okay? Everyone gets nervous about those. You’ll be fine.” “I’m afraid of being afraid. I sit there being anxious about something making me feel afraid, so I’m living my life in fear of fear… and I think I need help.”
