Shadowhunters
  • Cassandra Clare: "Shadowhunters: Looking better in black than the widows of our enemies since 1234."
  • Me: Don't you mean,Shadowhunters: slowly breaking my heart into a billion little pieces while looking better in black than the widows of our enemies since 1234??"
  • This is my first time doing something like this and I'm sorry if it sucks!

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
