As a bixsexual person I feel people need to re-evaluate cc representation if the only people who have been in relationships/made out with minors are bisexual
*deep breath* okay
first of all
Magnus did not “make out with a minor.” In New York, where The Mortal Instruments takes place, the legal age of consent is seventeen. Alec was almost eighteen when he met Magnus, and when I say “almost” I mean he literally turned eighteen, like, a week after they met. Alec was legally an adult when he and Magnus started dating, legally an adult when they first kissed, legally an adult when they first had sex, etc.
Secondly, I don’t get your other point?? What’s wrong with bisexual characters being in relationships?? Plus, there are more than just bisexual characters in Cassie’s books. There are gay/lesbian characters (Alec Lightwood, Anna Lightwood, Aline Penhallow, Woolsey Scott, Ty Blackthorn), bisexual characters (Mark Blackthorn, Helen Blackthorn, Magnus Bane, Michael Wayland, Kieran and basically all faeries because faeries are bisexual, also possibly Kit Herondale although his sexuality has not been confirmed), a transgender character (Diana Wrayburn), an asexual & aromantic character (Raphael Santiago). Most of the characters I listed here have been in relationships or are currently in relationships. So if your complaint is that Cassie ONLY has bisexual characters in relationships, I would have to disagree :)

“Every night, no matter what has happened during the day, no matter if I am torn or bloodied or so bone-tired I wish I were dead, I look up at the stars and I give each star a brother’s name or a sister’s face. I will not sleep until I remember every one.
The stars will burn out before I forget.”

“nice work in there, herondale, setting the place on fire,” Gabriel observed. “good thing we were there to clean up after you, or the whole plan would have gone down in flames, along with the shreds of your reputation.”
No, the last thing she cared about was whether people were staring at the boy and girl kissing by the river, as London, its cities and towers and churches and bridges and streets, circled all about them like the memory of a dream. And if the Thames that ran beside them, sure and silver in the afternoon light, recalled a night long ago when the moon shone as brightly as a shilling on this same boy and girl, or if the stones of Blackfriars knew the tread of their feet and thought to themselves: At last, the wheel comes full circle, they kept their silence.
okay this is really random and i know its probably been played out since lady midnight but cassandra clare is a sneaky bitch and im really nervous about something i noticed a while ago. so we all know julian was named after julias caesar right and the most famous thing about caesar is that he got killed by brutus. and then i was thinking oh i wonder what brutus’ first name is. its marcus. fucking mark. like this could mean nothing or it could mean something either way why the fuck would you neame your children something like that its like you want there to be stabbing.
They say you cannot love two people equally at once. And perhaps for others that is so. But you and Will—you are not like two ordinary people, two people who might have been jealous of each other, or who would have imagined my love for one of them diminished by my love of the other. You merged your souls when you were both children. I could not have loved Will so much if I had not loved you as well. And I could not love you as I do if I had not loved Will as I did.
