Remember a few weeks ago I mentioned doing a podcast dissecting the problems with the Mortal Instruments books and Cassandra Clare? Well the first episode of Too Much Information will premiere this week so please keep an eye out! I’ll be posting it here on my blog and the anti cc and anti tmi tag so do please tune in if you’re sick of all the praise the books get especially when it’s to insult the show!
Episode One will be called City of Boners: Too Much Information so please keep those eyes peeled for it!
prompt: 3 times simon hugs raphael + 1 time raphael hugs simon
“Thank you” Simon breathe against Raphael’s neck as his arms wrapped around the older vampires body. “You didn’t have to do that for me”.
“As you’re clan leader, it was my duty” Raphael answered hesitantly and placed an arm on Simon’s lower back.
The truth was, he didn’t help Simon lie to his mother because it’s his duty as Simon’s leader, the fact was he didn’t know why he helped the fledgling.
Now here they were, in the middle of the streets of Brooklyn, Simon’s arms wrapped tightly around Raphael.
“You can do this, you’re stronger than you think” Raphael encouraged as he set a box on the table infront of them. A beautiful silver menorah was wrapped in a soft golden cloth.
Raphael took Simon’s hand and directed it towards the box “Simon, it’s the only way you’ll be able to go home to be with your family”
It burned and stinged, Simon cried out in pain but Raphael was there to apply an ointment that Magnus had created on the scored skin.
It took them weeks but Simon was able to pray, he was able to light the first candle on the menorah with his mother and sister by his side.
“Raphael” Simon tapped on Raphael’s bedroom door. He quickly pushed the door open when he heard the the faintest ‘come in’
Without thinking he crawled onto Raphael’s bed, drawing him into a hug.
“I did it, I did it” Simon sobbed into the crook of Raphael’s neck.
“I’m proud of you” Raphael smiled softly, and he truly was.
“I loved Clary” Simon’s word slurred as he walked on the ledge of the roof of the hotel DuMort.
“I know” Raphael rolled his eyes more out of jealously than annoyance as he held on to Simon’s out stretched arm.
“She’s known me so long but nope she wants Jace, oh he’s my brother not my brother boohoo” Simon hiccuped and stumbled in his feet.
“Simon, dios” Raphael groaned and pulled Simon off the ledge “you’re going to get yourself killed”
Simon drunkenly smiled at Raphael, all fangs and crinkled eyes. His arms wrapped around Raphael’s neck, closing the gap in between them.
“I know you don’t hate me” Simon slurred and rest his forehead against Raphael’s “I don’t hate you either” he added in a hushed whisper. Simon’s lips brushed against Raphael’s.
“You’re drunk fledgling” Raphael snarled and stepped back.
Simon disappeared that night. And Raphael was sure he was going mad.
Two weeks passed without any sight of him. Maia was sitting across from Raphael in his office, she came often now, the seat in front of him was always occupied, Maia, Luke, Magnus, members of the clan and even Clary came once, they all delivered the same news “he’s nowhere”
“He’s out there, we just have to keep look” Maia sighed and Raphael nodded.
“You don’t have to look very hard” Simon shoulders were slumped when he stepped through the doors, his clothes were dirty and ruffled.
“You stupid idiot” Raphael was immediately out of his seat, knocking over the chair in the process.
“Where the hell have you been? You have some nerves just leave like that” Raphael scolded while he buried his face in Simon shirt and wrapped his arms tightly around Simon’s waist “I hate you so much”
