Shadowhunters Fans Are Going Full Sterek-Fans-Season-2 And I’m Getting Sick Of It Already
Today I see like 8 people on twitter are retweeting this #MalecDeservesBetter shit about how they are poorly and unfairly treated by the writers and have a lack of intimate moments and screen time compared to the heteros…
Let’s look back on this series so far, shall we?
Malec: 4 kisses, all romantic, and adorable hand holding, face-touching, gift-giving, healthy communication having scenes besides that.
Clace: 4 kisses, very little talking, one hug somewhere in there, incest story line treated as icky as it is by the plot.
Izzy/Meliorn: 1 romantic scene, 1 ‘omg you’re alive!’ kiss and hug, one fire-letter sent.
Simon/Maureen: Show in bed together, one ‘let’s go out’ conversation with little substance.
Simon/Camille: Drugged and molested and then subsequently murdered.
Simon/Clary: Two kisses, a hallucinatory fight, general best-friend-ness the rest of the time.
Simon/Maia: Slight flirting, mostly just friendly talking.
Jace/Fairy Girl: In bed together after hook-up. Nothing else to that.
….. so basically if Malec, ONE COUPLE, doesn’t equal THE ENTIRETY OF THE REST OF THE HETEROS, it’s unfair screen time/romantic scenes. Got it.
“Fans are using #MalecDeservesBetter right now to show that we want Malec to have the proper treatment they deserve. We want equality."
Sooo they want less wonderfully developed, intensely romantically written queer relationship representation? Cause that’s how you get equality since it’s already the superior relationship representation on the show. Most physical romance per couple, most communication per couple, most conversation relative to the relationship per couple, most attention to actual development per couple…
Seems to me all people want is any excuse necessary to see two dudes making out.
do you guys think griffin was planning on including barry bluejeans like this even if he’d kept the name he originally had in here there be gerblins or did he do it just because the THB only know like 4 NPC’s by name and he needed some wow factor for these dummies
