Okay watching the promo for next weeks ep is actually upsetting. Seeing Magnus trapped in valentines body not even Alec believing that it’s him breaks my heart. The look of defeat and sadness just shown on his face is killing me i’m actually tearing up
Magnus Bane is trapped in Valentine Morgenstern’s body let’s just think about this. He is probably being questioned possibly even tortured considering we saw that happening to Valentine in 2x11. We see in that promo Alec throwing him up against a wall cause he doesn’t believe it’s Magnus can you imagine how Magnus is feeling? The man he loves the man who loves him is aggressively throwing him against a wall and threatening him and Magnus can’t get through to him. When Alec is looking at Magnus here he doesn’t see the man he loves he sees the man he hates
Also think about the context here Valentine is a genocidal shadowhunter a man who has killed hundreds of Magnus’ people who has tried to kill Magnus and those he loves. Valentine is a man who despises everything that Magnus is and they are trapped in eachothers bodies imagine how scared Magnus is not only for himself but for what Valentine could do.
Let’s not forget that in the first gif he has just been sentenced to death but it isn’t Valentine it’s Magnus. Magnus has just been told that he has been sentenced to death that he is going to die and this is how it all ends when he is finally happy when he has fallen in love. Can you imagine the pain he is feeling the sadness and the fear?
And we see Alec
and this is the point where he realises something is wrong this might actually be Magnus cause Valentine would never look like that would never show sadness as openly as that. I feel Magnus at this point has lost all hope and honestly I’m going to cry thinking about this cause he is so broken he has given up. You see Alec’s face change you see him slowly realise that maybe this is Magnus his Magnus. I need Alec to fight for the man he loves and after all this is over I need to see Magnus happy because he deserves it after all of this imagine how traumatising this would be?
see, when you bring people to a place they’ve never been before, and they realize they’ve finally made it, it’s this look on their face that makes it all worthwhile. how do they look? well, they look like the whole world has new possibilities.
i love the expressions in this little scene so much let me tell you
i love how ford just runs over to them with wide open arms and that stupid grin on his face like just look at how happy he is to see them and how happy they are that he’s unfrozen
and then when he picks them up they’re just kind of startled because it’s so sudden and he’s never really done anything like that before
they’re so happy he’s safe and he’s so happy they’re safe
then he sees fiddleford and he gets really tense and the look on his face is just so vulnerable and guilty
and dipper and mabel are just really worried because they haven’t told ford anything about mcgucket and they have no idea how this is gonna go
just look at how defeated ford is here. he’s completely convinced that fiddleford hates him. meanwhile dipper and mabel just want everyone to be happy
and you can see the regret on fiddleford’s face when he says “i’ve tried forgettin’…” like ford’s not the only one who made mistakes mcgucket definitely feels guilty too
but he’s just so overjoyed to have his friend back
look at this pure old man
and then fiddleford puts his arms out and the look on ford’s face just kills me. he just absolutely cannot believe that he is forgiven and his friend is so willing to trust him again and put the past behind him
and he just steps forward with absolutely no hesitation because he’s thrilled that he’s forgiven but ends up going for a handshake first because “why would he want to hug me i ruined his life” and he’s still in slight disbelief and he’s just so shocked by such a kind gesture
then he realizes it’s a hug and he’s just
so excited because he hasn’t receiveda hug in so long and he’s so happy
look at how grateful he is that fiddleford forgives him and how glad he is to have such a great friend
dipper and mabel are so happy to see them make up look at their precious faces
in conclusion this is a great scene and i’m so happy that they’re all happy
