Alec and Magus meet at a mundane cafe, running into each other while on serious business (Alec is meeting a source who informs on local werewolves, Magnus has been told the mandarin and poppy seed bagels are simply magical). They instantly, slightly awkwardly, hit it off… except they both think the other is a mundane.
Cue lots of flirting and dates, while they both think they need to hide the Shadow World from the other and wondering how they can be falling for a mundane. Alec wears a lot of scarves to cover his runes and Magnus finds it nearly impossible not to show off with his magic.
It’s starting to get ridiculous when one day there is a demon attack, and Alec has just drawn his seraph blade when Magnus whips up a storm of magic to throw at the demon.
1. What is your favourite bagel flavour and topping?
My favourite bagel shop does one called a smoked salmon deluxe which is cream cheese, smoked salmon, avocado and rocket (arugula for you Americans) . I always have it on a poppy-seed bagel.
2. If you could change the ending to one book(or movie), what would it be?
I’m going to do both because why not?! The Hunger Games, because FINNICK DESERVED BETTER. And Moulin Rouge. Every time I watch that movie I secretly hope that maybe the ending will change, juuuust this once!!
3. Kiss, Marry or Kill the ACOTAR characters or if you haven’t read it, the TVD/TO characters?
Kiss Cassian, marry Rhys, kill the King of Hybern.
4. Who would you pay a ridiculous amount of money to see in concert?
I wouldn’t, I’m a ninja when it comes to booking concert tickets. But if I had to choose it would be Ed Sheeran or The Chainsmokers.
5. What is your go to comfort food?
6. Last tv show you watched?
I’m currently watching Riverdale, and I just watched 13 Reasons Why which everyone should watch,
7. What book are you recommending right now?
Caraval by Stephanie Garber. It’s wonderful and magical and you just need to read it ok??

Cass woke to her phone buzzing beside her. “Sweet baby jesus” she muttered, reaching blindly for the phone, knocking her glasses onto the floor before her hand found the device. “Shaw” She answered sleepily, brushing hair out of her face with her other hand.

remembered to give him plastic knives this time. He then goes to the fridge to
get the cream cheese because he and Taylor really loved covering their bagels
with a lot of cream cheese. He also pours the chocolate milk in one of Juliet’s
sippy cups. This one had Rapunzel on it. He walks up the stairs of their loft
and into their master bedroom.

daughter’s voice sing softly.

They had announced their engagement two months before the pregnancy rumors

scenario when he thought about his future as a family man after his best mates

New York but when his eyes caught sight of Taylor’s that night he knew he had
found the one for him.

life couldn’t get better for the Hiddleston-Swift family.
today i was walking down the street and i saw an entire, flawless poppy seed bagel just sitting in the middle of the sidewalk and i just knew every pigeon in new york was having the same feeling like, “why do i feel so out of sorts? what’s up with me today?” what’s up is your bird soul can feel the biggest opportunity of your bird life being missed out on. i crossed the street and saw a pigeon and i felt bad, like it was wrong to somehow not let it know.
