something i wanna see is magnus and alec having inside jokes. not cute lil flirty comments (which im also a big fan of don’t get me wrong) but like full on Ugly Laughing, Randomly Snorting At The Memory Of jokes. magnus coming home from a night out with dot and catarina and starting a new book they recommended and coming across a line so delightfully ridiculous he calls alec like “oh my god you have to fucking hear this” or something like that. alec coming home from the institute still grinning about a particularly odd report from some mission he issued, eager to tell magnus about the details he knew he’d find just as stupid. magnus in the middle of a meeting suddenly remembering a really dumb pun alec made that morning while they were still half asleep in bed and briefly struggling to keep a straight face. alec making an announcement and someone asking a question that reminds him of something he and magnus had laughed about days before and wishing he was there to reference it.
shit like that
