Ultra Magnus MTMTE
He’s a workaholic, so sometimes you find it a bit difficult to get time alone with him when he isn’t multitasking or worrying about ship wide shenanigans. It’s not that he doesn’t care, he actually cares very deeply for you, but his work keeps him busy. You eventually came up with a trick that would snap him back to the reality of his personal life. All you have to do is say his name very sweetly to get his attention, ask him to bend his head down to your level (probably on his desk), and give his nose a quick kiss. Nothing big, just enough to get him a bit flustered and ask what that was for. Once you tell him that was to hopefully pull him away from his office for a bit, he feels a bit guilty and tries to finish up his work quickly
One such time led to the two of you attending Swerve’s movie night. Magnus wasn’t much movies, but when he saw your face light up at the title he agreed. Even though he felt awkward through the whole movie, he enjoyed watching your reactions to each scene. He got a little chuckle out of watching you shove a particularly large handful of popcorn (courtesy of Swerve) into your mouth during an action scene. There was one scene that caught his interest, where the two main characters slow danced together. He quietly asked if anyone had ever taken you dancing, getting a bit excited when he heard your muffled-by-popcorn ‘no’. He now had a nice date idea and he was going to be prepared
For every nice gesture Magnus made for you, he always noticed and appreciated when you returned it. Since he works so much, he tends to talk a lot about all the little details of the job or what code this or that had violated (or successfully upheld on good days!). And he genuinely likes talking about these things, it’s his passion. Even if you find it a bit boring, he appreciates that you take the time to listen to him and even remember/learn things. He was the proudest bf when during one of his many lectures about proper code, you chimed in and added another point of concern (hallway safety violation probably). He practically beamed with admiration before catching himself (no favoritism on the job, even for you sadly), and saying ‘yes, they’re absolutely correct’ with stern expression. Once no one was looking, he gave you a quick smile and whispered ‘good work’
