malec appreciation fortnight: day nine
↳ why you love malec
honestly, what really makes alec and magnus work so well together, at least for me, is how similar they are. not in the sense of personality or shared life experience; rather, in that they both feel everything so deeply, despite trying to hide behind walls and bury their feelings. whether it be joy or despair, betrayal or anger or love– neither of them know how to feel anything halfway. when they meet, there’s an instant connection, and as they grow closer over the course of the season, they start to bring out that carefully concealed vulnerability in one another, more or less unintentionally. neither of them have had anything in the way of genuine romantic affection in their lives for a long time (alec has never had it at all), and i’m excited to see how things play out between them in season 2!
