The overwhelming passage of time has
been a topic of avoidance between Alec and Magnus ever since the two started
dating. With their lives so fragile and unpredictable under the threat of
Valentine, they have managed to leave the concept in the back of their minds
for a later date, hopefully somewhere in the far future.
This method of coping is pushed even
further in the wake of Sebastian, Valentine’s son and Clary’s brother, taking a
new and increasingly cruel step into their lives. The threats that are piling
up against them seem to be rising to nearly insurmountable heights, but under the
pressure of it all, the idea of the future that would come in the aftermath of
success is beginning to haunt Alec’s dreams at night just as often.

Magnus Bane is a pre-med student at NYU
just trying to graduate. He’s stressed enough and could do without his friends
pestering him about his boyfriend. It’s not that he’s embarrassed or closeted
or something. He just wants to keep his boyfriend to himself, thank you very
much. Now, if he could just get his friends to understand that, his life would
be a whole lot easier.
or Magnus has a secret boyfriend that
all of his friends have been dying to meet but Magnus just keeps refusing.
It’s the day that Alec is supposed to
become the official Head of the Institute and he is a tiny bit nervous.
“Nervous?”, Magnus said softly. Alec let out a shaky laugh and scratched the back of his neck in a nervous
gesture. “You have no idea.” Magnus sighed. “Oh, Alexander. You have absolutely nothing to worry about.” “Yeah, sure”, Alec scoffed, running one of his arms up Magnus’s side and
cupping his cheek with his hand, “only every single shadowhunter in New York
waiting for me to screw up.”
There aren’t many things that Alec loves
as much as he loves the stars.
Most nights, he just likes to sit on his balcony and watch the eerie darkness
drape over the sky and the silver glow of the moon, surrounded by the stars
shaping constellations he knows by heart.
This is a special night for him and his
son. The only night in the year Alec lets Max stay up after midnight, so they
can watch Perseids meteor shower together on the rooftop of their building.
Alec doesn’t expect to find out they
weren’t the only ones to get the idea.
“Mmmkay,” Magnus sighs without
opening his eyes and shifts to allow Alec more access. “You can wake up
the rest of me if you want.”
Alec knows he doesn’t mean it quite the
way his brain interprets it - he just means he can keep up the kissing - but
his brain leaps ahead and makes him flush, his body getting warmer. But why
shouldn’t he? Magnus was his boyfriend; he was naked in bed with him. He could
definitely wake up the whole of Magnus if he wanted. Just because he hasn’t
done it before didn’t mean it wasn’t a good idea.
Set before Episode 9 Bound By Blood -
Alec wakes Magnus up in new ways.
It didn’t matter if Alec hadn’t meant to
upset him. Ragnor was dead. Valentine was back. The Clave wanted to document
Downworlders, like they were cattle. Magnus was breaking down and he needed
Alexander to leave before he really lost it.
Everything was going great for Alec and
Magnus. Alec no longer cares what Maryse thinks, and apart from Jace and Izzy’s
constant teasing, he couldn’t be happier. Then, all goes downhill when, after a
great day, Magnus starts ignoring him. What did he do wrong? If only Magnus would
tell him, he could try to make it better.
Or the one where Magnus thinks Alec is
cheating on him but in reality he’s not, but Magnus doesn’t know that because
the two of them don’t communicate enough.
This will only be about 5 chapters
unless I feel like expanding the story a bit.
His legs are not working. No matter how
much he tries, the swirling mess in his head makes it impossible to walk
anywhere, take any action. It’s the last couple of days all over again. He
wants to cry but the tears are dry. He wants to scream but his voice is gone.
His voice is gone.
The aftermath of 2x11 and the consequences of the bodyswap for Magnus.
Magnus is a single father. Alec is a 4th grade
Both men are scared of relationships, but

But their plans of living single lonely lives
doesn’t last for long, when Rafael and Madzie Bane decide to play Matchmaker.
Meteors and Milky Way over Mount Ranier : Despite appearances, the sky is not falling. Two weeks ago, however, tiny bits of comet dust were. Featured here is the Perseids meteor shower as captured over Mt. Rainier, Washington, USA. The image was created from a two-hour time lapse video, snaring over 20 meteors, including one that brightened dramatically on the image left. Although each meteor train typically lasts less than a second, the camera was able to capture their color progressions as they disintegrated in the Earths atmosphere. Here an initial green tint may be indicative of small amounts of glowing magnesium atoms that were knocked off the meteor by atoms in the Earths atmosphere. To cap things off, the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy was simultaneously photographed rising straight up behind the snow-covered peak of Mt. Rainier. Another good meteor shower is expected in mid-November when debris from a different comet intersects Earth as the Leonids. via NASA
The Perseid Meteor Shower didn’t disappoint last night in Utah’s Valley of the Gods, where 500+ foot rock spires offered a great foreground. BLMer Bob Wick took the starry photo of the area last night and the day shots earlier in the week. A scenic loop tour travels through the spectacular sandstone formations – accessible to a passenger car in dry conditions. #weekendinspiration
To me, August is all about stars. I love watching the night sky far away
from the light pollution at my aunt’s summer cottage, wishing upon
stars when the Perseid meteor shower occurs, and trying to recognize the
constellations, but only finding the “Big Dipper” :D. Redrawing the
star map was crazy, but hey, I’ve learned something and I kinda like the
result :D (although it’s definitely not accurate). Make sure to look at
the summer night sky, it’s marvelous! 🌠
