if a fire-breathing snake was the best gift magnus ever gave how will he top it when he gives alec something. "here's a flying unicorn i got for you to ride into battle, and by got, i mean created from scratch. i hope you like it!"

ok i know i’m prob supposed to give a cute answer here but tbh the fact that magnus gave camille so many of those extravagant gifts says a lot about their relationship – the way he just kept trying to please her because he loved her so much and she just couldn’t give two fucks about him, and also because of what happened he feels like he owes her his life, something she’s clearly used against him. and i get the sense that when he made these beautiful wild gifts for her, he did it because she would look at him and smile, and he would think for a moment, maybe she does love me, too.

i don’t think magnus will be doing the same thing with alec. i think magnus knows alec is different – he’s clearly not a man with extravagant taste – and if magnus gives alec any gifts, it’ll be something really personal and meaningful. like i bet alec has all these old childhood scribble drawings from izzy and max and jace, and i can see magnus gathering them and charming them so they’ll never fade or be ruined and just putting them in a little box for alec to keep.

but the important part is that it wouldn’t matter what he gave. it’s not about the gift; for alec, it’s about the fact that a man he likes – the man he’s falling in love with – took some time out to get something for him. that magnus remembered him and thought about him. i get the feeling if magnus just swung by with a bagel on his way to meet a client – or even if magnus came by empty handed to say just to say hi – alec would light up like a christmas tree.

“Just friends”, huh?

“Just friends” don’t look at each other like that

“Just friends” don’t get jealous when the other talks about someone else

nor when someone does something they think only them could do

“Just friends” don’t hold each other like that

“Just friends” don’t hold hands

Neither do they touch each other like that

Friends aren’t supposed to be in love with each other.

The way we fall together, you and I,
It is like gravity.

It is a force that can reach into the furthest corner of space and time;
Gravity will never let go. We have done that,
You and I.
I see our fingers brush in the middle of a sandstorm on a distant planet and when your hand takes mine,
I can feel both our bodies singing with our shared stubbornness. Together, we have bridged the whole universe.


Gravity can never truly be removed from an environment. It is not like light, nor sound. There is nothing anybody can do to take it away.
I am sitting on the lab floor as my entire world falls apart,
(I see a flare appear in the sky,)
And I take your hand.


You do not see gravity. It is quiet,
It does not shout. What Newton saw underneath his apple tree was only an effect.
I do not see us fall. Rather, I feel it.
In my bones,
In my heartbeats,
In the way my head seeks out your shoulder and it feels like we have slotted back into place. We are quiet, as your lips brush my hair and I tilt my face upwards to find you.
You are soft, and I obey the laws of physics.


The closer two objects are, the stronger the gravitational pull is between them.
The closer we get together,
The easier it is to fall.


The way we fall together, you and I,
It is like gravity.


Inevitable.

A succinct Blindspot jeller recap in 5 points:

  1. First episode back and starring front and centre, Mr Heart Eyes Weller. Welcome back. You’ve been missed
  2. I could write an academic thesis about the look on Kurt’s face after Jane says, “make it back” <insert internal scream>. They’re practically about to be gunned down at Heart Eyes Weller has time for some caszh smug.
  3. Hand holding in a plummeting vessel and I’m dead, literally going down with this ship aeroplane
  4. And just like that Zapata and Reade know what’s up. Kurt honey, you’re not even tryyyinnggg
  5. Kurt. Alone. Waiting
