imagine one night where they’re out on the balcony and alec is slightly nervous tonight but magnus just decides its because alec is cooking dessert and he’s worried about it tasting okay
anyway so they’re kissing softly and then alec pours magnus another glass of wine and then excuses himself to get their chocolate souffles. magnus watches him as he works, messing with the puddings and making them look perfect.
magnus thinks its sweet, the entire evening has been sweet. alec prepared him dinner and chose his favourite wine and this is just another highlight. so he stands up and presses a kiss to alec’s cheek before grabbing a pudding and spoon and returning to his seat.
alec splutters from behind him, choking on a cough and magnus turns to him wide eyed asking if he’s okay. ‘fine!!!!’ is alecs reply and magnus shrugs it off as his boyfriend sots back down and smiles reassuringly.
his suspicions grow slightly as alec’s cheeks grow redder and redder and his fingers fly over his phone’s keyboard. he’s about to ask again what’s wrong but is interrupted by alec shoving his own souffle in his face 'do you want the rest of this???’
he’s only half eaten his and it WAS good and magnus also knows alec doesn’t really have a sweet tooth so he nods slowly and takes it carefully, setting his own finished pudding aside.
he’s so busy having a staring match with alec he doesn’t hear it at first. there’s a clink against something as he absentmindedly scrapes the food with his spoon. it takes a second clink for him to finally look down into the pudding and find–
there’s a ring. inside the pudding. and alec looks like he’s about to burst as the room descends into silence. magnus fishes the ring out, shoves the pudding aside and cleans the shining silver with the corner of a napkin.
its beautiful and intricate, swirling flowers with little diamonds woven in between, almost like little stars and its stunning. he hears his name and then alec’s hand his brushing his cheek and he realizes he’s crying. he says 'yes’ the same time alec begins to stumble through a long explanation about his siblings helping him write a speech he’s forgotten, but how he loves magnus and wants to be with him forever no matter how much time they have
magnus is crying again but laughs when alec stops stuttering and rambling and realizes magnus has already answered and then they’re both crying a bit and laughing and magnus is so happy his heart feels full and he feels loved.
they spend hours just smiling and laughing and kissing in between happy tears. later the sky is beginning to grow light and the sun is beginning to rise and magnus looks at his ring and says 'its beautiful’ alec looks straight at magnus and says 'yeah, it really is’
Hello! So I was at a party tonight, and this woman told me this great story about how she met her husband. She was the PR person for the local university. He was the sports editor for the local paper. He kept getting the school's mascot wrong in articles, and she would have to call him every time to correct it, growing increasingly frustrated every time. This was one of those moments when all I could think was LARRY AU, LARRY AU.
oh my god, thank you so much for sending me this message! It just made me so happy and I love it. Like, I love these actually people you met and I love it as a larry au!!!!!!
I feel like it works both ways so well for larry that I can’t even really pick one. example:
Louis as the university PR person, grumbling to Niall about the mistake the first time it happens. Waving the sports sectionaround and stabbing a finger at the picture of their mascot at a basketball game. “What the fuck!!! look at this photo of Ferdinand!?!! Look at this caption!!! A hawk???? A hawk??” (they are the falcons) And then like, because in this version louis is immediately over-frustrated, instead of increasingly, he’d call up the paper in a big huff and then immediately be disarmed by Harry’s calm, deep voice and seal bark laugh once he finally got him on the phone. Then he’d flirt-email him a link to an article about the differences between Hawks and Falcons as soon as he got off the phone, thrilling at his own daring as he did it! And after like the sixth time Harry got it wrong, they would go on a date and after they got married they’d always collected both stuffed hawks and stuffed falcons.
oh my god how killer, because opposite way around, Harry the PR guy calling, he’d be immediately disarmed by Louis’s voice, too!! Like all flustered, and then like he’d get blushy when louis teased him, but also tease back. oh my god and then seven or eight calls in, Harry finally loses it and is like “you just don’t care about our sports teams because we’re not division one! Well, tough! you live in this city too, Louis, you should know our mascot is a turtledove by now god damn it!” and then louis would ask him out.
i’m just smiling a lot. like i can also imagine either of them as the sports editor, starting to get it wrong on purpose and feeling like “oh no, my journalistic integrity!” but also “i need to do this flirting very bad!!!!”
