You loved that woman, Vicomte. What’s more, you still do. Quite desperately. If you had not been so ashamed of it, how could you have treated her so viciously? – Christopher Hampton, Les liaisons dangereuses
What if one day Magnus is caught in a huge storm in New York and can’t get home and it’s late so he finds the nearest hotel he can find to spend the night. When he gets to the hotel room he gets bored out of his mind because the tv programs are shit so he starts playing with the hotel phone and ends up calling the reception. The voice that comes over the phone is the sexiest voice Magnus has ever heard and the only thing he can blurt out is “Hi, your voice is incredibly sexy” and the receptionist pauses for a while before clearing his throats and replies, “umm, can I help you?”.
“Hi, im magnus.” “…Alec… So sir how exactly may I help you?” And throughout the night Magnus keeps calling the front desk to speak with Alec, who just so happens to be the only one who picks up his calls to bother him about everything just so he can speak to him. He does this until he gets too tired and falls asleep. The next morning when he’s checking out of the hotel, he sees a tall dark and handsome man behind the front desk and approaches him. His eyes travel down to his name tag which says Alec. Magnus smirks and leans over the counter as he reintroduces himself and he can see Alec blush furiously as he hits on him and maybe Magnus ends up asking him out too ;)
