Are you sure....? Because I thought I was interested in you too, but I don't have much experience in this area. I think you and I should get to know each other a little bit more and come back to this
First 3 parts are here, here and here or you can read it all on AO3 in one place. +
Chapter summary: Liam and Zayn are the pawns in Tanner’s game and there’s no way out, is there?
There’s nothing too graphic, it’s more what your brain would tell you, but obviously be mindful of this as you read on.
As before, alternate points of view and flashbacks in italics. Back with another chapter soon.
(this chapter is just a few words less than 4k so some is under the cut)
When Liam was a kid, games were fun, games were usually things like hopscotch if they wanted to be old school or sitting there till his eyes threatened to turn square from playing too many arcade games on the television.
Games can be okay still when you’re older. Just not right now, anytime but now.
All Liam’s wanted since he got into this position, this mess, is to see Zayn again, see his face and yet now he’d give anything not to.
That’s a lie of course because he always wants to see Zayn, but he sees too much right now, the way sweat trickles down from his temple and because Zayn’s frozen in place mainly thanks to Liam yelping at him to stay where he was, he doesn’t wipe away the moisture and so it almost looks as though he’s crying.
To others, that’s probably the only outward sign that Zayn’s under stress right now, only Liam knows and can see one small vein in his forehead twitch, one tiny movement on his face and the way his eyes blink a bit faster because it’s the only thing Zayn feels safe enough to move.
“Quite the little statue aren’t we Malik?” Tanner’s voice is relaxed, playful even, the only one of out the three of them enjoying this though Liam hears Winston laughing as Tanner speaks.
Zayn says nothing, just blinks again, it’s admirable how Zayn’s breathing has slowed right down, how he doesn’t seem anxious and instead it’s Liam whose pulse quickens, and yet he’s not the one at risk of being blown up, he’s not the one at risk of dying.
Not strictly true of course, absolutely far from being strictly true actually but still if anyone’s in danger, mortal danger it’s Zayn.
As Tanner suddenly turns round to look away from the screen and looks directly at Liam, glances down at the desk and pulls open one of the drawers and picks something up from the drawer and then starts to laugh as he approaches Liam and Liam can see what he’s holding now.
Liam wonders if Tanner has some mind reading technology somehow because maybe his assessment of Zayn being most at risk was a bit premature.
“Let’s see how much of a statue you stay when I start to playing with this knife and set about redesigning your boyfriend’s face shall we?”
how do u tell someone u think they’re pretty spectacular & u want to kiss their nose when they’re sad and want to know what they think about at night and make stupid jokes with them & just fall in love bc I could never say that to them
Prompto: You’re so elegant and formal, Ignis, I had no idea you could fight this way. I can’t picture you doing other kind of wild stuff like that. What’s the wildest you’ve ever seen him do, Gladio? Gladio: … Gladio: Oh boy, you don’t want to know. Ignis: You really don’t, Prompto. Don’t ask again. Gladio: It was on my 21st birthday- Ignis: You wouldn’t dare, Gladio. Gladio: Dear god, best birthday gift ever- Ignis:
Do not listen, Prompto, he’s lying.
Gladio: I was both terrified and the most fascinated I’ve ever been in my life. Ignis: I don’t know what he’s talking about.
Gladio: There was nothing in the world that could stop him, geez, it was like he was possessed- Ignis: stOP Gladio: Astrals, I had no idea somebody on Eos could do something like that, and for so long, it was so wild, omfg- Ignis: Gladiolus Amicitia, that’s private. Gladio: I’ve never seen someone move so wildly like omg I think I passed out on pure ecstasy at least twice and whenever I recovered my senses he’d still be moving like wow- Ignis: Please no ;A; Gladio: he almost broke me, almost breaks the headboard, and literally ruined my bedsheets, how could he do that!? Ignis: Can you please stop, I don’t- Gladio: Geez, it was so heavy, he left me sore, I don’t understand how he was able to stand up in the morning- Ignis: Prompto Argentum, stop listening- Gladio: and the maid outfi- Ignis: LET’S GO TO THE ARCADE, PROMPTO. Prompto: :D YAY, ARCADE!
Tanner sat in the corner of the coffee shop, papers spread across the table. She hadn’t realized how behind on work she’d become. She’d been here for hours and the steady flow of caffeine was wearing off. A large yawn escaped her lips and she shook the tiredness out of her head and tried to regain her focus. “come on, tanner. just a few more notes and your done.” she spoke quietly to herself, not noticing who was near her.
“I do not talk to Nephilim about Downworlder business,” Lily said severely. The Lightwood parents stared at her, and then swung their heads in sync to stare at their son. Lily waved a dismissive hand in their direction. “Except for Alec, he’s a special case.” - Born to Endless Night
Can we talk about this scene??
Lily, the head of the New York vampire clan comes barging in screaming for “LIGHTWOOD!”. Robert Lightwood, as the Inquisitor, assumes she’s addressing him. To which her reaction is basically “WTF dude, who are you? I need Alexander Lightwood, obviously.”
She then proceeds to launch right into telling Alec the story of the latest drama in vampire land, ignoring anything Robert tries to say. When Maryse points out that they should report to her as she’s the head of the New York Institute, Lily says flat out that she does not talk to Shadowhunters about their problems. Except she’s already there telling the whole thing to Alec, having sought him out specifically for this purpose. And the way she talks to Alec makes it obvious to everyone present that they’ve done this many many times. She trusts him and knows that he’ll help her sort it out. In fact, he’s already taken steps to sort out the situation before Lily even showed up.
So the Lightwood parents are standing there witnessing this conversation go down, and they realize two things: 1) their son knows everything that’s going on in the Downworlder world and didn’t tell them anything about it, and 2) somehow he has managed to do what no other Nephilim has, i.e. build a good and functioning working relationship with the leaders of the vampire clan and werewolf pack. Basically, Alec is boss and they had no idea.
I mean, did you SEE this part?
“Alec looked at his family over Lily’s head and shook his own head in a small, firm gesture.”
That right there is how he did it. Using his subtle authority and showing respect for others. Lily was cooing over the baby and the rest of the Lightwoods were ready to draw their weapons and attack her when she did something so innocent as making faces at a baby. Because she showed her vampire teeth. She’s a vampire, so they’re not willing to give her the slightest benefit of doubt here, even though she’s clearly friendly with Alec and he’s clearly fine with her approaching the baby. But Alec’s been willing to set old prejudice aside and he’s built a relationship with Lily that is based on mutual respect. He’s doing what no other Shadowhunter could by treating Downworlders with respect and not thinking that he’s superior to them from the start.
At first it killed me a little that Alec won’t be the next head of the New York Institute, but now… I’m thinking he’ll do us one better. He’ll do even better work by being the link between the Institute and the Downworlders. I can’t wait to see what changes they’ll all be able to do together.
