I’ve seen alot of posts about all the ways shadowhunters was bad and unfaithful to the books so heres a list of all the things that were faithful/extremely accurate (and not in the movie which some of you seem to love so much ):

  • Simon’s band name changes twice in one episode from chamagne enima to rock solid panda 
  • Isabelle’s terrible cooking is mentioned, she even makes simon soup (or what passes for it)
  • Alec actually speaks (gasp) and is the sassiest motherfucker in the institute
  • Isabelle also speaks (gaspx2) and knows shes sexy af, and just sits around being a goddess and giving out wise advice 
  • The lightwood siblings are bffs, and isabelle is constantly trying to make alec happy
  • the seraph blades actually light up
  • Hodge is in his 30s (and not like 80 years old how did that even make sense he was the youngest member of the circle? anyway.)
  • Jocelyn is a badass
  • Valentine is scary af and actually old enough to be clary’s father
  • “shadowhunters looking better in black than the widows of our enemies”
  • Raphael is actually there
  • Jace is cocky af
  • portals can only be created by warlocks
  • Clary is a badass
  • Simons yellow van
  • magnus’ outfits
  • just all the characters were on point and i am trash bye
