todays twitter dump is seungchuchu themed because they are the best boys!! dedicated to @llyn-on-ice because she showed me part of something she was writing and it inspired most of this and also she inspires me every day of my life
I really like villainous characters and I really like heroic characters. I would honestly find so much of the Discourse much less annoying if we could all be chill with there being really complex, interesting, dynamic characters on both sides rather than acting like a preference for the bad guys makings you a deep intellectual and liking the good guys makes you a dumb golden retriever… and by the same account a preference for the heroic characters doesn’t make you a wonderful person by default and ppl who like villains into gollum caricatures.
alec closed the door to jace’s new room and made his way over to the living room, finding magnus seated on the couch.
“thank you for letting him stay here,“ alec says, sitting down next to magnus. they’re close, but not touching, and magnus looks at him and smiles.
“i’ve taken in many strays over the years, though never a shadowhunter,“ magnus comments, shifting slightly so he’s facing alec. his knee presses against alec’s and alec feels like his whole body is wired to the place they’re touching.
“i had a really good time tonight,“ alec says, somewhere over magnus’ shoulder. “until, you know, the stray golden retriever came along.“
magnus bursts out laughing and alec stares at him, struck by the sound. he’s never heard magnus laugh like that and by the angel, it is the most musical, happy sound and alec wants to hear it again and again and again.
“me too, alexander,“ magnus says, placing a hand on alec’s thigh. every touch is new and all consuming, and alec finds himself savouring every detail of it. they stare at each other for a few moments and alec knows it’s getting late and that he should go, but he can’t quite bring himself to say it.
his phone chimes and he reaches for it inside his jacket pocket, seeing it’s a text from izzy.
“everything okay?“ magnus asks, concerned.
“yeah, yeah,“ alec rushes out and looks at magnus. “i should go, but i don’t- i mean, if you want, i-“
magnus brings a finger to alec’s lips, and alec can’t help but smile at the gesture, the moment a mirror of their first drink together.
“please stay,“ magnus says, his voice quiet and warm. “just a little longer.“
alec nods, and magnus gives him a bright smile before leaning in, and a moment later they’re kissing, softly at first, and then deeper. one of alec’s hands moves to magnus’ face, the other finding the hard muscle of magnus’ shoulder.
one of magnus’ hands goes to alec’s chest and alec is sure magnus can tell how his heart is almost bursting out of his chest, like it has done every time they’ve kissed. magnus breaks the kiss a moment later, using his free hand to guide alec’s from his shoulder over his heart.
and fuck, alec can feel how fast magnus’ heart is beating, because of their kisses, because of him, and he can’t help but lean in, kissing magnus again, and again, and again.
