I will never understand for the life me, why Book!Magnus is the fan favorite even among antis. Along with Magnus’s horrible fashion sense, he a pompous callous jerkoff who doesn’t care who he steps on to get his way. On the surface, in this passage, Magnus looks like he’s doing something truly selfless by helping Maia.
However, I’m going to spoil you and tell you that this asshole will ask for payment by the end of this chapter. Yet, if that wasn’t enough for you, you have him is in this passage. saying: ” My Name Is Magnus Bane, bitch don’t you know who I am?” To Maia, who is supposed to be a great deal of pain right now.
Admittedly, I might be just reading too much into it because I already despise Magnus. For me, his interaction with Maia just has an underlining tone of condescension to it that rubs me the wrong way.
