AN: Howdy! I'm new to this part of fanfiction, so please be nice to me! So I was writing a Malec fluff story, but then I finished CoLS, and I couldn't write/read Malec until I found a way to make it work. so i wrote this lovely (and short) piece!

Reviews get to cuddle Magnus Bane the purple panda! Flames get punched in the face!
