What is so wrong with not wanting Alec to be immortal? He would have to watch his whole family and friends die. Its not fair to make Alec "give up" his family to be with Magnus, just like its not fair to have Magnus "give up" living for Alec. Just because thats not the fairy tale happy ending dosent mean they cant have an epic love story. But yeah, this anti-gay tropes I guess...

firstly, no one has to Give Up anything tho. alec certainly isn’t giving up his family to be with magnus now and he won’t be giving them up later. 

he doesn’t have to watch them die (people make it sound like he’s sending them to the guillotine and he’s the executioner): 

  1. the life of a shadowhunter is wrought with danger and they could die at any time. they all live knowing this. 
  2. while warlocks have the ability to live forever, they can also die at any time (r.i.p. ragnor). (if we are to assume he gains this sort of immortality, not that i want either of them to die)

it’s not a matter of them being Equal (that they both have to be either mortal or immortal), it’s just about them living together forever and there’s nothing wrong with that. tbh, what’s more beautiful than that?

it doesn’t have to be some highly emotional ordeal where they have to make a crucial decision before the clock strikes 8pm on a monday in august. 

regardless of how the show deals with it, they’ll still have a fairytale happy “ending.”


also, all lgbt people are immortal so jot that down.

Imagine competing with Alec in archery

This is how I think it would be

First scene is everybody with Max in hospital

Even when Magnus in a fight with Alec he’s so supportive

Then Magnus and Luke go to Seelie Queen

I think she would tell Magnus something about Alec that will upset him

Then he come back and I’m really afraid of this scene

UPDATE GUYS THERE IS ANOTHER “I LOVE YOU” SCENE THAT I JUST FOUND IN SDCC PROMO

And here is he staying and thinking about their relationship

Then in Magnus’ thoughts we can see flashback from 2x07

Alec’s interrupting Magnus’ thoughts

And then we get it

But maybe last scene from flashback I’m not sure but I think it’s not

UPD: I DIDN’T NOTICE FLOWER WHEN MAGNUS LEAVES SO I CHANGED IT
