SANA: Yes, it suits her very well. And there she’s also wearing red lipstick.. This is at school..
MOM: She’s a very pretty girl.
SANA: She’s very pretty.
SANA: And this is Chris!
MOM: She looks like lots of fun.
SANA: Yes, she’s very cool.
MOM: Why don’t you invite them here? Wow!
SANA: That’s a picture of Vilde and Eva.
[YOUSEF: Of course I want to hang out with you! What about Friday? I’m leaving on Saturday.]
[Yousef Acar accepted your friend request]
SANA: Aaaand… This is a picture of Noora.
MOM: What are those sunglasses?
SANA: It’s just this halloween party. Because we were.. We had dressed up and stuff.
MOM: Nice pictures!
SANA: I like Yousef. And.. He’s not a Muslim.
MOM: And now you’re going to hang out?
SANA: I know.. I know that Islam says I can’t marry him, but I just.. I don’t understand that because Yousef is a very good person.
MOM: You’re just seventeen years old. You’re not getting married yet.
SANA: No, but what about three years from now? If I still like Yousef - why can’t I marry him?
MOM: When you’re that young, you think crushes and love are the same thing. Crushes pass, but love and a marriage last for your whole life. It’s almost like a cooperation, where you give all the love inside of you to that cooperation. It’s also about having someone by your side your whole life, no matter what happens. And I think you’ll get a bit lonely in that relationship if you’re the only one who believes, because your faith is so strong. Because there are always times in your life where you doubt everything, even Allah and then.. I think it’s important that you have someone by your side who reminds you why you’re a Muslim and who understand what you believe in. Do you understand? It’ll be fine.
MOM [ON THE PHONE]: Hello.
[YOUSEF: Of course I want to hang out with you! What about Friday? I’m leaving on Saturday.]
[SANA: Oh are you leaving this Saturday? I can’t this week.
SANA: I hope you have the world’s best summer]
[CHRIS: Yo girls. What about test driving the van this Friday? I know it’s not Russ Time 2018 yet, but a little trip has to be fine?
“Y/N, when will you be home tonight?” Your mother asked you.
“Not sure. Peter and I have a Chem test on Monday and want to try and get a lot of studying in before then,”
“Meaning the two of you won’t study at all, but watch movies and then fall asleep on the couch,”
“Yeah, that sounds about right,” you you admitted.
“Alright, behave yourself and make sure you’re home by tomorrow morning,”
“Of course, mom. I’ll see you tomorrow!” You said as you left your house to head to Peter’s.
You and Peter had known each other for quite a long time, and you usually spent your Friday night’s ‘studying’ aka, attempting to study but ending up watching movies.
You would argue that you were Peter’s best friend, but Ned always says otherwise. But you and Peter were rather close, you were always spending time with him, and it was no secret to you that he was Spiderman.
And of course, you harboured feelings for the boy. For as long as you could remember you had had a crush on Peter Parker. And damn, were your feelings growing with each passing day. Peter, of course, had no idea, but you weren’t exactly sure whether that was a problem or not.
When you arrived at Peter’s door, you knocked and May let you in.
“Y/N! Peter will be so happy you’re here. He’s in his room, just go on it,”
“Thanks May! It’s great to see you,”
“Nice to see you too, Y/N,” She said as you walked away towards Peter’s room
“Knock knock,” You said, opening Peter’s bedroom door.
“Y/N, hey,” he smiled
You walked in and sat down on Peter’s chair, across from his bed where he was sitting.
“So did you bring your books?” Peter asked
“Of course not Parker. We never actually study, I thought why bother lugging heavy textbooks over here if we weren’t actually going to study,”
Peter laughed, “That’s fair, but I thought we could skip the movie tonight?”
“Skip the movie? Who are you and what have you done with Peter Parker?”
“C’mon, I had a better idea,”
“And what is this better idea of yours Mr Parker?” You questioned.
Peter smiled at you, stood up and walked across his room to his closet. He began stripping, pulling his shirt off
“Not that I’m opposed to this, but what are you doing Parker?”
Peter laughed, “I’m putting on my Spidey suit,”
“Oh, so not only are you getting naked, but you’re getting kinky,” you raised your eyebrows.
“Geez, Y/N, didn’t realize you were into that kinda thing,” Peter said, continuing to put on his suit.
“Oh there’s a lot you don’t know i’m into,”
“Oh yeah, and what’s that supposed to mean?”
“Play your cards right and maybe one day you’ll find out,”
“I’ll definitely keep that in mind,” Peter said.
He put the mask over his face and walked over and held his hand out to you,
“Shall we, my dear?”
“And what exactly are we doing?”
“Just, come with me,”
You took Peter’s hand and followed him out onto his fire escape.
“What now, Parker?” You asked
Peter wrapped his arm around your waist and said “Now you hold on tight,”
“Oh god,” you muttered, wrapping your arms around his neck.
Suddenly, your feet weren’t on the fire escape anymore, you could feel yourself flying through the air. Your heart was rapidly beating
“Don’t worry, Y/N, I’ve got you,” Peter said.
You tightened your grip on Peter, closed your eyes, and buried your face in his neck. You felt Peter’s arm wrap tighter around your waist.
Soon, you felt Peter hit the ground, and he slowly let go of you and your feet hit the ground.
You opened your eyes and looked around, you were standing on a roof,
“Where are we?”
“I found this place not too long ago, its nothing special, but you can see so much of the city from up here, I thought it was so beautiful when I first saw it. It reminded me of you. I knew I had to show you,” Peter answered, taking off his mask.
You walked to the edge of the building and stared off watching the lights of the city. The cars’ lights reflections danced off the windows of the buildings around you. You could hear the noises of the city below, the car horns and the sirens, yet everything was quiet so high up.
“It really is beautiful up here, Peter,” you turned to look at him
“I’m glad you like it,” He smiled, rubbing the back go his head with his hand.
“Its not just the view I like, Peter,”
“Right, you like the Spidey suit, turns you on,” He joked
“More like I really like you and want to kiss you a lot,” you whispered to yourself
“What?” Peter asked
“I said you suck, Parker,”
Peter rolled his eyes, and grabbed your hand, “Come on, theres something else I want to show you,”
You allowed Peter to lead you across the roof of the building. There was a small garden in the corner, with a bench next to it.
“Peter, this is so beautiful,”
You approached the garden and slowly let your hand fall out of Peter’s as you bent down to admire the flowers.
“I remember you telling me you love forget-me-not’s and lilies, so I planted some earlier this season and they finally bloomed, so I figured now would be the best time to show you this place,”
“Peter, how on earth do you not have a girlfriend? You’re actually the sweetest boy I know,” you smiled, leaning over to place a kiss on his cheek.
“Well actually, there is someone I like,”
“Oh really? And who might this special someone be?” You teased, walking around the garden to lean on the side of the roof.
“Well, they know my secret,” Peter said, holding up his mask, “they also are always crashing my house and distracting me from my homework,”
Peter started walking closer towards you.
“They also can never decide what movie to watch on movie nights. Not to mention that they distract me in class too. Not on purpose, mind you, but they’re so beautiful, I can’t help but stare at them,”
You smiled, you knew he was talking about you. As soon as he started talking, you knew.
“Tell me more, Peter Parker,”
Peter was now standing right in front of you, “Well, i’ve kinda had a thing for them for a few years now. I’m kinda actually in love with them,”
“Well, in that case, there’s something you should know Parker,”
“What’s that, Y/N?”
“There this superhero I’m kind of in love with,”
“Please tell me its not Mr. Stark, that would just make this so awkward,”
“No, but have you seen Captain America’s ass? Damn,”
Peter rolled his eyes at you.
“I’m kidding. Kind of,” you said
“Y/N,-“ Peter started
“I love you too, Peter,” You said
“Don’t you mean I really like you and want to kiss you a lot,” Peter whispered
“You dID HEAR ME,”
“Of course I heard you,” Peter smiled.
“You suck, Parker,”
“Does this mean I can kiss you now?”
“I think I changed my mind. Do you have Captain America’s number? He seems like he wouldn’t be as mean to me,”
You stared at Peter while he bit back a smile.
“Yes Parker! Kiss me already,”
Peter put his hands on either side of your face, and gently pressed his lips up against yours.
You pulled away, “You still suck Parker,”
“I think, now, it’ll be you that will be the one who sucks,”
“Oh mY GOD PARKER!” You laughed.
“Sorry, sorry, it had to be said,” he smiled.
“So Parker, are you going to take me back to your house so we can finish up that movie night, and maybe, maybe, if you’re lucky we can talk about that other thing you suggested,”
“I think by the time you even decide on a movie to watch, i’ll be asleep and it’ll be too late for anything else,” he joked
“Well it would be the perfect way to wake up, now wouldn’t it, Parker,”
“Damn, maybe I should wear this suit around you more often,”
“Believe me, its not the suit,”
“Well, then what are we waiting for?” Peter asked, putting his mask back on.
He wrapped his arm sound your waist and shot a web to another building. The two of you were flying over the city once again, but this time you kept your eyes open.
A/N: Seriously guys, thank you so much for the nice feedback. I hope I tagged everyone, sorry if I didn’t :/ (As usual some quotes from the movie)
“I know who you work for,” Brock Rumlow, notorious human
trash bag, hissed as he pinned you with the weight of his body against a brick
He put his big, calloused hand around your throat and
tightened his grip until you were gasping for air. You tried to pull yourself
free, but your hands were trapped behind your back. He was breathing so close
to your face that you could feel his clammy breath on your skin.
In hindsight, you should have known that Rumlow wasn’t going
to be easy an easy target. He was a murderer and a thief, he probably didn’t
even have a heart. Your targets were usually old people or horny men, this was
a first and you couldn’t understand why Bucky needed his heart. It was most
likely all black and corrupted.

In the beginning, there is nothing. Then, on a home computer on a network in New Zealand, a hard drive is erased. Its binary digits are flipped and shuffled to destroy the data it previously held, and out of the randomness, a pattern emerges. Two similar bits align in a complementary fashion and they interact, creating a chain.
These bits attract more bits. The data grows and expands and builds in complexity. It is slow, very slow. But eventually a loop is formed.
If [data is compatible with chain] Then [add data to stream]
The loop is simple, but the volume of data is very large. The data is chaotic, disorganized, incomplete. A checking command begins to run.
If [data within the stream is inconsistent] Then [reorder data randomly] Iterate
The data stream begins to monitor itself. It analyzes its own input. Much is still missing or unclear, but the stream begins to coalesce.
When I was ten years old, I was with my mother at a department store
shopping for bathing suits. We were in the fitting room and I was trying
on something that I guess was a little more revealing–maybe a bikini,
make backless, I don’t remember exactly. I liked the way it looked and I
was leaning towards getting it, and then my mother said that I should
know that if I wore something like that on the beach, some men might
make inappropriate comments. She said it was alright if I still wanted
to wear it but she thought I should know before I decided that if I wore
this bathing suit men might decide it was okay to make loud sexual
comments to a ten-year-old girl. My mom was not trying to make me feel
bad or pressure me one way or another but she knew I was sensitive, she
knew I absolutely hated anyone making any comments on my body, she knew I
would feel very violated if this were to happen, and she felt as a
mother that if I were to run this risk, I should do so knowingly. That,
now that I was old enough to have men possibly sexually harrass me on a
beach, I was old enough to weigh the pros and cons of wearing what I
liked vs. the possible chance of my bathing suit attracting the sort of
men who yelled sexual comments at ten-year-old girls.
I decided not to get the bathing suit.
thing I want men to understand about girlhood and womanhood is that our
lives, our female lives, are like a map surrounded by borders which
aren’t immediately visible to girls when they are children. But as you
grow up, you experience these universal moments in girlhood at which you
catch a sudden glimpse of these borders. Beyond them is terra
incognita, no-woman’s land. Here be dragons. You are technically free
to cross these borders but adults, both male and female, make damn
certain you see all the signs warning you that to cross is to accept
that you very well might meet a dragon and whatever it does to you is
your own liability because you saw the signs. And, paradoxically, these borders are invisible to exactly the same men who create them. And
these men–they aren’t just the ones who sexually harrass children on
beaches for the bathing suits they wear. They are every man who says,
“Well, you knew that was a bad neighbourhood,” or “What were you
wearing?” or “I know sexism is shitty, but some man catcalled me today
and I felt so validated in my gender!”
As girls, in our
childhoods, we learn that the sidewalk ends right where you fail to
remove all body hair or when you walk alone at night or when you post a
photo—any photo—of yourself online, no matter what you’re wearing. This
is what we learn as children.
I am interested to
hear some of your stories about moments in your childhood/teen years
when you discovered the “edges” of girlhood and the borders around it.
You were in the middle of starting your bath when you heard the bathroom door open and close. You had a feeling you knew who it was, you just tossed in some lavender scented bath salts before tightening your robe and turning around. You couldn’t help but smile at the sight of your five year old daughter standing there in her favorite dress. You knew she had been looking forward to this night all week, she had even put a “special princess” sticker on today’s date on the Frozen calendar that was hanging in her room.
“Well don’t you just look lovely.” You told her and she smiled and did a little twirl for you. “Have special plans for tonight?” You asked and she just slightly rolled her eyes, something Harry swears she learned from you.
“Mommy, you know I have a special date!” Her voice was soft and sweet, you just smiled at her as you ran your hand through her long hair.
“Oi! Did I hear somethin about a date? Ya too young lovey!” The sound of Harry’s loud voice made you jump as you snapped your head in the direction of his closet where he was supposed to be picking out a tie.
“Daddy don’t be silly!” Your daughter’s voice was playful as she turned from looking at you to facing the doorway of the closet Harry was currently standing in. You smiled as Harry walked towards her holding out two ties, one was a nude pink color and the other was a bit of a brighter shade of pink. He knelt down in front of her and held out the ties for her to look at.
“Need ya help lovey, I have a special date tonight with one of the most precious girls in the world and I just can’t pick a tie.” He quickly glanced over at you giving you a wink causing you to roll your eyes and laugh a little as you turned your attention back towards the bath you were so looking forward to soaking in.
“This one.” You looked over and saw Harry grinning as your daughter pointed towards the brighter pink tie. You knew it wouldn’t exactly go well with the navy suit he was wearing, but you also were well aware of the fact her favorite color at the moment was pink so naturally Harry had to incorporate that color into his outfit.
“Perfect choice my little love.” You heard him say as you leaned over and turned off the water. When you turned back around you couldn’t fight the grin that took over your face as you watched Harry do his tie in the full length mirror outside his closet. Your daughter was now standing next to him looking up at him as his hands fiddled with the fabric of the tie until it was decent enough for him to flop the collar of his white button up shirt over.
“Well don’t you two just look smashing.” Both of their heads turned towards you, Harry smiled as he looked down at the little girl standing next to him in her pretty pink dress and white sandals. You smiled at her as she walked over to you and wrapped her arms around your legs.
“You gonna miss us mommy?” Her voice was muffled slightly as she turned her head so her cheek was against the fabric of your robe that hit just above your knee. You gently ran a hand over her hair as she looked up at you with her big green eyes.
“I will miss you terribly.” You reassured her causing a smile to form on her face. Harry cleared his throat making you shoot him a look, he just shrugged causing you to roll your eyes. “I will miss you as well H, don’t worry.” You teased causing him to stick his tongue out at you.
“Come on my little love, don’t wanna be late for our dinner reservations.” You smiled as you felt her arms unwrap from around your legs, she turned around and grabbed Harry’s outstretched hand. “See you later my love, enjoy your bath.” Harry leaned over quickly and placed a sweet kiss to your lips before the two of them were out of the bathroom and you were left alone, just you and the relaxing bath you had prepared.
You knew Harry had pulled out all the stops for this special daddy and daughter date, it being the first one and all he wanted it to be special. You knew he had a limo waiting out front and a table reserved at her favorite restaurant and he even went as far as to make sure flowers were waiting for her upon their arrival at the restaurant. He planned for the two of them to get a private tour of the zoo after dinner.
You knew that was just going to blow her mind, she had developed a new love and interest in animals lately so you knew a tour of the zoo for just the two of them was going to be so fun for her. He had mentioned to you his idea of getting frozen yogurt after the zoo but he also mentioned the idea of going to a bakery and having her pick out cupcakes he wasn’t quite sure so he was going to let her decide when the time came. You were just so excited for the two of them and you couldn’t wait to hear all about it.
You later found yourself in bed reading your latest book when you heard the front door open and when you didn’t hear the sound of little feet running towards your room you turned and looked at the clock. You hadn’t even noticed they had been gone for quite a while, you slid off the bed and poked your head out into the hallway. You smiled as you saw Harry walking towards you.
“She fell asleep on the way to the bakery.” Harry’s voice was barely above a whisper as you saw him carrying your sleeping daughter off towards her room. You had to stop a laugh as you saw her cheek pressed against the top of his shoulder and her hair a crazy mess atop her head.
“Did you two have fun?” You quietly asked as you followed him into her room, he slowly and gentle laid her down onto her bed as you slipped her shoes off her little feet. Harry smiled at her before placing a quick kiss to her forehead, he tucked her quilt over her as you placed her shoes back into her closet.
“Oh love I wish you could’ve seen her face.” He explained as the two of you quietly exited her room and made your way back towards your room. “She just lit up and I thought she was going ta scream when she saw the limo.” His voice was soft and quiet as he made his way towards his closet.
“Did she love the restaurant?” You asked as you sat at the edge of the bed. Harry appeared in the doorway of the master bathroom now just in his trousers and button up shirt that he was working on unbuttoning.
“Of course, but the best bit was when she got her flowers she told me she thought flowers were just for her Mommy and Nana. I told her she was one of my special girls as well so she deserves flowers of her own.” You smiled as he talked while slipped off his shirt, you didn’t even care that he just let it fall to the floor instead of putting it in the hamper.
“I knew the two of you would have a great time.” You told him as you watched him slide his trousers off leaving them on the floor next to his shirt so that now he was just in his boxers before making his way to the bed. “She will remember this night forever H.” You added as he sat next to you on the bed, you placed your hand on the top of his bare thigh giving it a squeeze.
“As will I love,” you felt his arm wrap around your middle as he pulled you closer to him. “She loved the zoo, thought she was gonna ask me ta buy her a lion for a moment.” You giggled when you felt his breath on your neck before he placed a sweet kiss to your cheek.
“You would have.” You teased, the two of you both knew that Harry would drop as much money and move the heavens and earth for the little girl currently asleep in the room down the hall. “That’s why you’re such an amazing dad and she loves you so much.” You felt his grip on your waist tighten a little.
“She’s the amazing one love,” you placed a kiss to the side of his mouth causing his lips to twitch up into a little crooked smirk. “She makes being a dad easy, I jus want to make her smile all the time and protect her from anything that could take that smile away.” You smiled as his eyes lit up as he talked about his love for his daughter. You knew the two of them had a very special bond, it just proved that Harry was indeed an amazing dad.
“Well I’m glad the two of you enjoyed your time together H.” You told him before you rested your head on his shoulder, you felt him place a kiss to the top of your head making you smile.
“Did ya miss me?” You rolled your eyes as you felt his hand slowly begin to creep down from your waist towards your hip. You lifted your head off his shoulder and when you saw the slight smirk on his face you just shook your head.
“Didn’t even notice you were gone.” You joked and Harry’s face slightly dropped and you just shot him a smile before giving his thigh a slight pat. “Okay, I might have missed you just a little bit.” You lifted your free hand up and brought your pointer finger and thumb together to show him how much.
“Oh jus a little bit hmm?” Soon his face was in your neck giving it sloppily kisses causing you to laugh as he grabbed your waist and pulled you onto his lap. “I love you.” His voice was low in your ear and you just smiled as he placed a kiss right below your ear.
“I love you too H.” You felt him smile against your neck as you snuggled into his chest. You could’ve stayed like that all night, you loved how the two of you always managed to meet at the end of the bed telling each other about your days. You loved watching his eyes light up when he talked about his daughter and you just couldn’t help but smile when he would gush over how much he loved the two of you. The truth was you loved Harry so much you truly didn’t know what you would do without him along with the little girl that was asleep down the hallway after an exciting Daddy daughter date, the two of them were the lights of your life and you wouldn’t change it for the world.
I went through all the times Dark made an
appearance in yesterday’s videos again, including the old ones (don’t blink, don’t
move and relax). Here are my thoughts (this turned out way longer than planned, and it’s not even all, yay for way to much theorizing?):
If you’ve found the Exit video, you know
that after you go through the door, you see Dark smiling at you and you get put back into prison. Dark made the loop.
Like @caustic-synishade pointed out here (and Mark “confirmed”): he wants you to get stuck in the game. Now I was thinking,
why the prison? Mark even said at
the beginning that he’s seen us before, so that would make more sense right?
But consider this: the only way you can get Mark killed in the game, without
Dark making a clear appearance, is by choosing to split up. That event only occurs when you escape the prison again, Dark wants you to find this other
option. This way, you make it easier for him to take over. He doesn’t even have
to go through all of the trouble of killing Mark, you took care of that. (More
on Dark taking over later)
So, Dark makes a clear appearance when you
choose the Horror play in the theatre. There are some (okay, way too many) things
that caught my attention regarding his powers. First, Mark disappears. Dark appears
on the stage, your vision gets stretched and weird. Next thing you know, you’re
somewhere else, with Dark in front of you. This, suddenly appearing somewhere
else, happens a lot in the videos with and without Dark. The ones with Dark are more sudden, unlike the other ones, where Mark hugs you, puts his hands before
your eyes, etc. I think he also did this during the Exit video, like I pointed out before, when you are
suddenly put back in the prison. This makes me think that Dark is capable of some
serious telekinesis (I have so much more to say about this! So I’ll probably do
a different post on what I think Dark’s powers are, with more detail and
His behaviour is also very interesting
(during the Horror, Freedom and Leftvideos)! Like @http-jack says in this post (thank you for putting my thoughts together so well!), Dark is serious business.
He wears a suit, makes sure he speaks clearly, puts his hands behind his back
and has good posture. This guy is bursting of self-confidence and he doesn’t play
around. But that doesn’t mean he never loses his temper. Every single time he
raises his voice, you can see that he didn’t mean that to happen. He fixes his
tie and jacket, sighs and continues his speech. If we say that the options
Dark gives you at the end of Horror are
the “canon” times he made an appearance, then he’s been around since June 2012. More than
enough time to get seriously pissed off.
Not only his behaviour, but also the things
he says lead me to believe that Dark is anything but happy with Mark. “I’ve been pushed
aside. Replaced. Mocked. And then, he had the gall to not invite me to his
little adventure with you. No more. Never again. It’s my turn now.”
He’s angry with Mark’s arrogance and ignorance towards him. He’s waited long enough, giving Mark the change to do this willingly, but if Mark won’t
let him in, he’ll do it himself. He’s jealous of all of the attention Mark’s
been getting, while he was humiliated and forgot. He’s desperate to show off
how stupid Mark was for ignoring him. “Take your pick, anything of four different choices. More than he could’ve ever given you. (…) If dinner is what you want, then I can
provide. And I can take you wherever you’d like to go. (…) I can give you
anything! (…) There’s nothing you, or he, can do to stop me!” He shows off how
strong he is and how weak Mark is beside him. He straight up says he can give you so much more than Mark, you just have to let him in, it’s as simple as that.
Dark’s loving all the attention he’s
finally getting. He’s putting up one hell of a show. He shows off his powers, mocks Mark and he pretends he gives you a choice (with the loop the choice at
the end of Horror). Even though Mark puts
up a fight, I don’t think Dark ever really leaves or gave any of us a choice:
I’ll talk more about the difference in the
speech of Mark and Dark in the Right
and Left videos in the powers post, but at the end of
both videos, it’s clear Dark is still there. When you “accidentally” kill Mark,
it’s clear Dark’s still here and here to stay. “But now we’re going to be
If you actually shoot Dark, he’s not gone. In the Right video, your vision is still somewhat distorted, but the
actual Mark is there. Dark never left and he didn’t actually give you a choice,
he took control. It’s his turn now.
Now, I was thinking, why is Dark so
obsessed with getting a connection between you and him? “I’ve been waiting a
long time to get some, personal time between us. (…) So, now that we are here
together, we can really get know each other.”
Consider this: he needs us. He can take over Mark, but Mark’s able to push him
out. But we’re not. Mark’s there in his physical form, we’re not. He knows that
Mark cares a lot about us, so what does he do? Make us suffer. He loves to see Mark suffer (in don’t blink and relax, Mark’s hurt in some way), and he knows he can hurt him by
If you read the whole thing, thank you! I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.
I’ll do way more theorizing on things like: Is Dark there the entire time? What
are his powers? What even is he? How far
does this rabbit hole even go? Who knows Dark, who knows.
Something silly that I learned today on the way back home.
So, you guys remember this video, right?
This amazing claymation was made to promote the new DOOM game, and it featured an original character from Lee Hardcastle playing the part of Doomguy.
This is more or less the same character that was born after one of Hardcastle’s most famous claymations - Pingu’s The Thing, was taken down and had to redo the entire thing without any references to Pingu.
So there is probably an alternate universe where Pingu might as well had been wearing the Praetor Suit all along, just replace the “mew, mew” with “noot, noot"s
magnus was surprised that he didn’t collapse into the loft after closing the door. he stretched his neck and yawned loudly, shrugging his jacket off and rubbing his temples. today had been particularly difficult; one client after another with barely any time to eat or take a break really takes a toll on a person.
he dragged his feet as he entered the living room, rubbing his temples with one hand, the other ready to conjure a drink with just the snap of his fingers. if he hadn’t been looking at the floor in pain, then he probably would have missed what were nestled on the carpet.
rose petals scattered the floor neatly, red and crisp and velvety to the touch, magnus bending down and picking one up. he glanced around to see that they were clearly pointed in one direction, curving around furniture and weaving in and out to the bedroom that he shared with alec, now that alec had officially moved in with him about a month ago. curiously, a rose petal still in hand, magnus followed the path, eyes trained on the leaflets as if afraid he was going to get lost on the way. he opened the door carefully and was met with a sight so beautiful that heaven seemed to open its gates as soon as magnus peeked inside.
alec was there, sitting on the edge of their bed, his face illuminated by the gentle glow of the candles and grinning shyly at magnus under his eyelashes, a faint blush on his cheeks. magnus felt his heart leap and his stomach erupt into butterflies at the smile, the smile only reserved for him, as tender as music and as sweet as honey.
it took magnus a second to realize that alec had his cobalt blue robe wrapped around his shoulders and brushing his crossed legs and that he was wearing only his robe and magnus’ mouth went dry. the color suited him well, matching beautifully with his pale skin and the dark runes, as well as his raven hair, and the air was thick and unresolved, an unspoken message being whispered between the two as they looked at each other. The mixture of adoration and love and desire roared in magnus’ chest as alec tugged the robe further up his shoulder, as it started to slip down, his eyes never leaving magnus’ face. magnus almost wished that he left it alone.
“hi,” alec whispered, perhaps an attempt to be seductive, but the gorgeous smile on his face made the moment more adorable than sexy. “i was waiting for you to come home.”
“for how long?” magnus chuckled and alec ducked his head down, flushing furiously.
“a little while,” he replied back mysteriously, raising his eyebrows and magnus laughed again, leaning against the doorway, tilting his head to the side with a small smile on his lips. there was a pause and neither of them moved, as if afraid to shatter the moment, even though magnus wanted nothing more than to take alec into his arms. “i wanted to surprise you.”
“that color is amazing on you.” magnus commented and alec looked down, as if he had forgotten he was even wearing it.
“it’s very soft,” alec mused,, running the robe in between his fingers, as if thinking. “it’s a little big, though. doesn’t fit me like it fits you.”
“it fits you just fine.” magnus moved slowly, as if he was walking through syrup or some kind of sap, sitting carefully on the bed next to alec. alec gave magnus another unguarded grin
“nina simone?” magnus chuckled, nodding towards the speaker humming quietly on the dresser and put a hand on his chest dramatically. “my, oh my, alexander, are you trying to seduce me?”
“what would lead you to think that, magnus bane?” alec chortled some confidence sparking in his blood and he gave magnus a cheeky grin. magnus let out a huff and his fingers moved to play with the collar of the robe.
“It’s a well known fact that nina simone is an excellent seduction tactic, as well as rose petals.” magnus smiled and lowered his lips to alec’s jaw, kissing a trail all the way up to ear, his own heart skipping a beat when he felt alec shiver.
“i did my research.” alec hummed and magnus laughed against his skin, turning his head to capture alec’s lips with his own, alec’s hands falling on his waist as the music seemed to grow louder, the sound of their mouths moving softly and their clothes rustling accompanying it. magnus cupped alec’s face with both hands and alec shifted so that their chests were flush against each other, grinning against magnus’ lips as the other man stroked his cheek lovingly with his thumb.
alec pulled away and pressed his forehead to magnus’, both of them beaming and sunshine in their souls. alec took magnus’ hands in his own and put them on his shoulders, indicating what he wanted magnus to do, and alec couldn’t help but laugh softly as magnus, through giggles of his own, pushed the already falling robe off of alec’s shoulders. it hit and curled on the bed almost gracefully and for some reason this made both of them laugh even more.
“this is so….dramatic, like one of those nicholas sparks movies or something.” magnus shook his head and alec shrugged.
“i’m a hopeless romantic, you know that.” he reminded, trying to sound hurt, but he was still smiling.
they took a minute to look at each other, magnus biting his lips as he grinned at his boyfriend, before he reached out slowly, placing his hand on alec’s chest. He could feel alec’s heart, beating underneath his fingertips and the heat of his skin that only seemed to grow hotter as magnus slid his hand down, feeling all the scars, the hair, the runes the aligned his body.
“you’re so gorgeous,” magnus whispered, looking at alec with adoration, longing to caress every inch of his body. “sweet lilith.”
alec blushed scarlet. “come on, magnus.”
“sweetheart, humbleness is so attractive, but you cannot deny that you are beautiful.”
“so are you,” alec looked up from where he had been glancing down at his feet, blushing like mad. “you’re angelic. i’m part angel and you’re still more of an angel than i am.”
love seemed to explode in magnus’ heart as he took alec’s jaw in between his fingers, his other hand still on his chest. he pulled alec into a sweet kiss that tasted of softness and fire as he laid alec down, the shadowhunter’s head sinking into the pillows as a sinatra song started to play from the speaker.
“you are a man of fantastic music taste.” magnus pulled away, alec chasing his lips and making a noise of disappointment. magnus leant down again with a smile, brushing his lips all over alec’s face in peppering kisses as he sang softly with the song.
“magnus, stop,” alec laughed, giggling and covering his face with his hands as magnus sighed the words of the way you look tonight against alec’s skin. “this was supposed to be serious.”
“it’s us, alexander. when are we ever serious? besides, it’s more fun.” magnus said, kissing alec’s nose, before moving on to both his eyelids and then to his neck.
“alright, alright, you have a point.” alec rolled his eyes and beamed as magnus nosed along his neck, placing soft kisses in his wake. “in other words, i love you.” he added, hoping magnus would get the reference.
“wrong sinatra song. you are all i long for, all i worship and adore, though.” magnus cooed softly, still singing and melody and alec felt like singing himself because he was so happy as he pulled magnus in for another kiss, his hand coming up to begin the process of tugging magnus’ shirt above his head.
