Its been noted that S2 Magnus's clothes/accessories are a bit toned down/less colorful than S1. Prompt/Idea: Magnus is afraid of scaring Alec off and so is toning it down, wearing darker colors thinking it will make Alec 'my entire wardrobe is black' Lightwood more comfortable. But Alec actually really likes the always changing dyed hair and is wondering why he hasn't seen Magnus wear that shimmery blue shirt in awhile.
okay i really can’t believe i didn’t answer this one because this is too real. like, just imagine alec and magnus curled up in bed some lazy sunday morning (in a universe where things go right for them for once and no one is banging down magnus’s door for him to save them, idk a girl can dream..) and alec is just like studying magnus’s face with a soft smile on his lips and magnus finally asks “what?” all soft and kind of vulnerable and alec is just totally oblivious like “you never wear the gold sparkly stuff on your eyes anymore” and magnus is like “oh. i didn’t know you liked it?” kind of phrasing it as a question and alec just gives him a look like ‘duh, have you seen you?’ and says something like “i liked when you put color in your hair too, remember it was gold that night we had drinks after you healed luke?” and magnus is just like quietly dying that he actually remembers and after that all of the colors come back and everything is right in the world the end
