alec-speaks

Okay but just imagine everyone talking in a room, going over plans and Alec is just sitting there watching Magnus and then idly reaches out and takes his hand while Magnus is still talking and just plays with his rings, twists them, pulls one off and puts it on himself, then puts it back on Magnus and he doesn’t realize that everyone has stopped talking and are just watching him with amused yet loved eyes because wow where did uptight, angry Alec go now he’s replaced with distracted, relaxed, happy Alec and yes I like this

SH fix it

@shadowhunters-official has a lot of loose strings and I’m upset with s2 as a whole to be perfectly honest. What I’d like to see happen:

  1. Simon works on who he is as a person and learns to appreciate the people who love and help him
  2. Raphael is no longer the show’s personal punching bag (no more abuse)
  3. Izzy saves herself from addiction with the help and support of her family and friends
  4. Clary stops sabotaging and controlling everyone around her, she remains single until she can work through her issues
  5. Luke is allowed to properly grieve over Jocelyn and doesn’t have to deal with Cleo and Clary’s nonsense 
  6. Valentine is killed off for good
  7. Jace begins to heal his emotional wounds and Maryese hugs him often, she mothers him a lot. He is allowed to move back into the institute
  8. Maryese learns to accept Magnus in her son’s life and copes from her husband cheating on her, Izzy dotes on her 
  9. Alec learns to use his words instead of his hands when there’s a conflict and he and Magnus talk it out like adults when they have a disagreement, they have consensual sex where he doesn’t push Magnus into the bedroom when Magnus clearly wants to discuss it first
  10. Aldertree is punished for his crimes and Izzy and Raphael are there to witness his shame
  11. Izzy apologizes to Raphael’s clan for her actions in s1 
  12. Lydia steps up as the new Institute leader and is damn good at it 
  13. Meliorn returns and has parts outside of just being used by Isabelle Lightwood
  14. Izzy stops manipulating others into getting what she wants and understands No means no 
  15. Maia has a bigger speaking role and story outside of a romantic plotline (let her geek and boss ass bitch wolf side show, show her interacting with the pack and laughing)
  16. Simon finally apologizes (profusely) to Raphael for betraying him, treating him like garbage, blaming him for everything. He goes home to DuMort (if the clan is okay with it) 
  17. Elaine Lewis’ alcoholism is addressed and her children are there to help her overcome it, they visit more often, she and Raphael have more scenes together
  18. Magnus and Raphael bond over their past traumas 
  19. Lily and the female vampires get speaking roles 
  20. Izzy and Clary make nice with one another 
  21. The creepy surrogate lady goes poof because she was okay with essentially letting Clary get raped
  22. Alec and Magnus adopt the little girl with the gills (when they’re ready for that step as a couple) 
  23. Downworlders are treated with respect and dignity by the shadow world 
  24. Minority characters are given storylines that don’t include being a glorified drug dealer (Raphael) or the person who constantly has to pick up after everyone’s messes (Magnus)
  25. No more white savior complex (aka Clary ‘fixing’ things for Luke/Cleo) 
  26. Clace needs to either be eliminated or greatly repaired (let’s do away with the sibling storyline)
  27. Simon makes peace with being a vampire and is okay with it 
  28. The vampires, shadowhunters and wolves learn to tolerate one another
  29. Magnus gets to throw a lavish party that goes exactly as planned, he is thanked for his efforts
  30. Queer ships are no longer ambiguous and are not used to garner views without going through with it 
  31. Clary apologizes to everyone she has hurt 
  32. Raphael apologizes to Simon over the whole Kill them thing 
  33. Simon and Magnus screen time (pals)
  34. Allow Izzy to go to the Iron Sisters and fulfill her childhood dream 
  35. More religious!Simon and religious!Raphael as their religions are a huge part of who they are 
  36. The clave needs to be broken down and rebuilt (by Lydia) 
  37. No more of Raphael physically pushing Simon around 
  38. Elaine Lewis finally gets that family dinner with Clary, Raphael and Simon (she makes pot roast)
  39. Elaine learns of Jocelyn’s death and grieves 
  40. Simon comes out as both pansexual and a vamp and his family accepts him (after the shock of the revelations) 
  41. More scenes involving Magnus being a bad ass old as the hills warlock
  42. Camille’s abuse of Simon, Magnus and Raphael is addressed and understood that it’s not okay 
  43. Magnus and Alec are given some well earned fluffy boyfriend storylines without drama 
  44. Maia and Luke scenes 
  45. Raphael’s sexuality is mentioned and treated with respect 
  46. Raphael and Simon speak in their native language more 
  47. Add on? 

nah but what if steven got a call from sadie that trans lars was having a really hard time today trying to buy clothes after someone said he shouldn’t be buying these clothes and so steven is running out the door when pearl’s like “steven! where are you going? we have a mission.” and steven just turns around and is like: “me too. a transmission.”

suave terribly lonely sexy gay man who wears nothing but suits and loves his hair more than most people falls for a boy next door type who is oblivious to his feelings ( so he quietly burns )

Sorry for the play button on the second pic, but these totally go together!!

Alec is talking to Lydia about “my brother is still missing” and maybe he gets mad that no one is helping him or I don’t know, but Magnus shows up at some point and maybe Alec says something mean? Since he’s so worried it seems he doesn’t really have a filter. I don’t know! Some shit is definitely going down though! Anyone else have any ideas??

yo real talk i forgot how fucking beautiful david tennant was in broadchurch

I love the idea of omega/omega or alpha/alpha relationships being taboo because it’s just hilariously ironic. We felt that our male/male characters were oppressed by their lifestyle and the homophobia around them as well as wanting them to be biologically compatible. We completely redefine gender from the ground up –no, not just gender. Sex. We are literally biologically changing their bodies. Then we make such a big deal about it that we even convince the readers that anything that deviates from alpha/omega is deviancy and wrong. Not only do we create homophobia in a world we created in large part to escape homophobia, we’ve conditioned ourselves as both readers and writers to even view it that way so that you only ever think of alpha/omega and when someone suggests an omega/omega pairing you wrinkle your forehead and say “okay, but who’s the ‘alpha’ omega” or “well, why couldn’t you just make one of them an alpha” – or my favourite: “but it’s not biologically viable; they can’t have children that way” – and I honestly think this is like the funniest, most ironic part of omegaverse.

I’ve noticed recently that everytime I watch a new tv show or movie I come to this weird default that all the mains should be with each other. Love triangle? OT3. Who will the protag choose? How about both. We are all such good friends. Is it possible for 4 people to kiss each other all at the same time? Everything by default now is poly af.

anonymous asked:

It was so nice to hear the way Harry talked about Alec coming out. I feel like he and Matt have a really good understanding not only of their own characters, but of each other's characters too

i agree!!! i really love that harry stressed that alec came out for himself and that it was an act of self-affirmation. i feel like the narrative made that clear, but it’s still nice to know it hasn’t been forgotten as we go into season 2.

something that also caught my attention was what Isaiah added to the conversation:

“When you said that Alec did it more so as a statement, you kind of allude to that – no spoilers – in the beginning of season 2, you kind of allude to that when you talk to him.” (x)

i’ll toss the rest under a cut for spoilers.

He is half of my soul, as the poets say.

Can we talk about the symbolic when it comes to Jace and Alec in the show?

If you darken the hug scene from Moo Shu to Go even more than I did, it’s just as if there was just one person standing here. It’s like they’d have merged and became indivisible, as one.

In 01x12, their clothes are matching each other’s hair color in the wedding scene. We see that light/dark, golden/blue thematic all over again, with Jace’s face lighted, while Alec’s one is shaded.
Not to mention the way they have chosen to film this, and what it actually implies, probably as a reminder of their own parabatai ceremony.

They’re two entities, two halves contrasting with each other, but complementary and bound together to form a whole, just like the Yin-Yang symbol.

Something about this one make me really happy. 

Just look at Magnus, he’s watching Alec intently yet when alec’s face contorted he looked down knowing Alec was gonna be self conscious about his reaction to the drink. He’s smiling though, cause he finds it adorable. That thing where Magnus can come on to someone so hard yet he’s always considerate and soft at the right moments say so much about him.

Can you just imagine malec reading a bedtime story to madzie?! I want it so bad!

Can you imagine though.

~All three of them squashed together on her tiny little bed, Magnus could easily charm the thing but doesn’t because it’s amusing to see Alec’s long limbs tangled up everywhere.

~ Alec and Magnus acting out the voices.

~Imagine them reading sleeping beauty. I’ll leave that there, just imagine.

~Madzie not being able to sleep unless both of them read to her, because papa Magnus alone can’t do all the voices. 

Listen domestic Malec gives me life but Malec with kids????? End of me!
