stamina rune

  • Alec [about Camille]: Does she still love you?
  • Magnus: I don't think so. She wasn't very pleasant the last time I saw her. Of course, that could be because I've got an eighteen-year-old boyfriend with a stamina rune and she doesn't.
  • Alec: *sputters*
  • Alec: As the person being objectified, I ... object to that description of me.

Imagine Magnus staying up late while Alec is going to bed. Somewhere in the middle of the night, Magnus sneaks into bed, behind Alec, snuggles up against him and put his arms around him, his forehead on Alecs shoulder. Then he whispers, although he thinks that Alec is asleep:
“Sorry that I’m so late.”
And Alec whispers back:
“Don’t worry, I knew it before that you have a nightlife…”
“Did I wake you?”
“No, I can’t sleep when you’re not there.”
He feels Magnus smile on his shoulder. Then he turns around so he can look at his warlock and puts his arms around him, too.
“Just come closer.” he whispers while placing a gentle kiss on Magnus’ forehead.

“Does she still love you?”

“I don’t think so,” Magnus said dryly. “She wasn’t very pleasant the last time I saw her. Of course, that could be because I’ve got an eighteen year-old boyfriend with a stamina rune and she doesn’t.”

Alec sputtered. “As the person being objectified, I … object to that description of me.”

No but guys, imagine what it would be like the first time Alec calls Magnus’ loft home

  • It isn’t a big thing, it’s one of those things that slip out without Alec meaning to say it, like most things with Magnus.
  • Probably after a particularly hard night of hunting, Magnus having tagged along because it was supposed to be their date night, but Demon’s don’t really stick to schedules. 
  • Everyone else wanted to grab something to eat after, but Alec was just far too tired, and saw no point in drawing another stamina rune when falling into bed sounded so appealing. 
  • Magnus offers to go back with him, obviously, fussing over any injuries Alec might have sustained, the Shadowhunter pushing him away weakly and insisting he was fine and repeating that he just wanted to go home and sleep.
  • They hail a cab because Alec is dead on his feet and even though Magnus won’t admit it, he’s more drained than he lets on. 
  • Alec is practically asleep on Magnus’ shoulder before they even tell the driver where they’re going, so Magnus rhymes off the address and pulls Alec closer, resting his chin on the younger boy’s head and letting him doze off for a bit.

Remember that moment in City of Lost Souls when

Alec: Does she still love you?

Magnus: I don’t think so. She wasn’t very pleasant the last time I saw her. Of course, that could be because I’ve got an eighteen year-old boyfriend with a stamina rune and she doesn’t.

Alec: *sputters*

Alec: As the person being objectified, I…object to that description of me.

Shadowhunter Runes [6/?]

I haven’t been posting much lately. Okay, that was the biggest understatement of the year. For that, I’m sorry. School’s eating me up alive! But I’ll try. Lots of love  💕

Imagine the time that Little One starts dating and Alec and Mag decide to sit with her and have “The Talk”

  • Alec is explaining all of the technical stuff. Condoms, pills, how to avoid STDs and a bit about the process itself.
  • Magnus, anyway, is sharing his personal experiences:
    “Vampires and werewolves like to bite…”
    “Fairies are pretty bossy…”
    “A lot of warlocks rend to use their magic during the act, something I don’t understand…”
  • Magnus particularly emphasizes rumors about Shadowhunters, praises the Stamina rune and it’s benefits. He keeps talking until Alec’s face is painted in a new shade of pink.
  • They talk about heterosexual sex as well as homosexual sex. Making sure they are keeping any of the options open.
  • They emphasize that she shouldn’t be ashamed of her impulses, and that her sexual acts doesn’t define her.
  • A LOT OF SEXUAL RELATIONSHIPS SHE SEES ON TV ARE NOT HEALTHY. They teach her to know the differences. 
  • And of course, Alec writes everything in “Information cards”, and prints some information-leaflets from the internet.

Okay but I need Magnus to comment on Alec’s stamina rune in season 2 but instead of Alec getting flustered, he just fucking smirks at him and Magnus smirks back and they’re eye-fucking so hard that everyone else in the room is like “seriously guys?! You can bang each other later, we’re supposed to be trying to find Jace!”

BONUS: it’s Izzy who makes that comment as she tries to hold in her inner fangirl whilst Simon is next to her ready to pass out from the feels.
