angel by the wings
26 May 2018
For a second Magnus entertains the idea of divine intervention. He thinks back to this afternoon, Alec talking about his faith with a steady conviction and a fire that lit his hazel eyes with the flickering dance of flames. The way he'd described it as, “things he knows to be invariably true, the realest thing he's ever felt"...well, it's enough to make Magnus pause. Alec had seemed so sure, then, that the answer he had was the right one, guided as he was by his ‘truth’ and his scripture. But beyond that, Alec seemed…ethereal, in that moment. Taller, somehow, with broad, strong shoulders and a light that seemed to emanate from him, pure white and blinding in the dusty air of the classroom.
Magnus might not believe in a God, but in the face of Alec's conviction? He's finding it harder not to believe in him.
Catholic school AU where Magnus and Alec are stubborn, Jace and Isabelle aren't having it, and Raphael spends his time praying for them to all get their lives together already.
