did u hear about the malec spoilers ppl saying there is a fight?? what do u think
I DID the info is a little all over the place and i got a glimpse of what ppl were talking about. TBH i am pretty intrigued because if it’s taking place how I think and if the context that was provided for the line is true, then I can really see Magnus telling Alec to get out over the incident with the Shadowhunters being killed and the Downworlders being so angry because Alec doesn’t get it why this is happening – this oppressive conflict that’s been going on for centuries.
This is what I really, really hope is going to be addressed in 2B and while I don’t…quite trust that they’ll do it or do it well, based on this tidbit it looks promising? But it’s impossible to tell from such little information. Anyway, my ideal scenario is for them to show that while Alec and Magnus are in fact in a very loving relationship, there’s still a world of racial politics that divides them and a lot that Alec doesn’t get (understandable, considering the society he was raised in, but equally understandable for Magnus to get upset about it and/or call Alec out on it).
As someone in an interracial relationship, we really do navigate these conversations and situations as part of it. So I think it would be really important to see it played out thoughtfully on screen and to show that if you’re in a loving relationship with someone – esp someone who holds privilege over you – you have every right to call them out on their privilege and be heard. And if your partner is respectful and caring and genuinely loves you, they’ll listen and learn better.
