After taking Max in, Magnus dedicates a pretty significant amount of time and energy into casting protective wards over their home in Brooklyn.
We’re talkin’ some of Magnus’ most powerful charms and use of his own magic to date.
And when Rafael comes along, Alec goes into Castle-and-Moat mode on Home Improvements.
The baby monitor in Max and Rafe’s room has been modified by Alec and Magnus to go off like a siren if there’s an unidentified third-party lifeform in the room.
The first time the Baby Siren goes off in the Lightwood-Bane house, Magnus and Alec are out of bed so fast the bed nearly topples in their haste to get to the kids’ room.
Alec is grabbing his seraph blade from behind the family portrait as Magnus’ eyes glow a frightening shade of gold–a murderously bright flame encompassing both of his clenched fists.
In full-panic, high-adrenaline, Dad Mode Extreme™, Magnus and Alec don’t stop to hear the voice in room cooing at their boys–instead diving in, fists and weapons blazing–as they shout, “Max?! Rafe?!”
And nearly incinerate/maim one Miss Tessa Gray.
Seated at the center of the room with a giggly blue toddler in her lap and groggy, mussy-haired Rafael draped over her shoulder, Tessa looks sheepish.
(Having tracked Magnus from halfway across the world and portalling to Brooklyn in an attempt at a cheeky “hello” to the Lightwood-Bane family, Tessa failed to calculate the time-difference, arriving directly in the boys’ room at precisely 3:07 in the morning.)
Deflated with absolute relief, Magnus and Alec slump to the floor, groaning reproachfully at their guest.
Babu Siren once had fear of being near the gaster blasters because they make scary noises to him. Apparently Snazzy turn out to have a pet gaster blaster which he thought was a skelecat. You may find Swifty the one who holds Siren the most other than Sensy, Ganz nor Snazzy.
People: So like, what kind of music are you into?
Me: *war flashbacks to mosh pits*
Me: *remembers stage diving off my bed to metal*
Me: *breaks voice trying to scream to the lyrics*
Me: Oh you know…
Me: Acoustic and piano, really calm stuff.
Me: *head bangs furiously as they leave*
