Totally agree with your movie vs. tv Magnus Bane post. I would also love to see what you have to say about the "preferring GG's Magnus with MD Alec's" thing cause I've also noticed it & it rubs me the wrong way. I just can't quite put my finger on the exact underlying reasons why people do it. First instinct is "It's cause GG "passes" & HSJr does not", but I don't think that's the case here. My other guess is "Magnus is better as a pretty prop, don't want to face that asians are ppl" ...

Hi! Thanks! You saw my tags :) Yeah, truth be told, my blood pressure rises, whenever I see an edit / a fic or a shipping suggestion with Godfrey’s Magnus and MD’s Alec. Personally, I see it as nothing more than racism and fetishization with a weird mix of colorism.

I wouldn’t say that Godfrey’s “passing” but, for whatever unfathomable reason, some people do:

Sometimes I read that I’m not 100 per cent Chinese, because I don’t look all that Chinese

I really have no idea why. Maybe because he’s tall or something… I’ve seen a lot of people thinking similarly in regards of Gemma Chan, and saying that she is biracial (which she isn’t). And that’s another thing I’ll never understand. Racism has a lot to do with this, for sure.  

I’ve actually seen one fic writer saying that they imagine only Godfrey’s Magnus with MD’s Alec when writing “because Godfrey is hot”. Basically, the implication here is that:

  • They don’t find Harry attractive enough [you-know-why.gif]
  • Their whitefave “deserves” only the “hot” Asian.

It’s fetishization and racism all in one ugly package. Neither Harry nor Godfrey deserve this kind of crap.

Godfrey doesn’t deserve it because this kind of thing:

Isn’t a “compliment”. It’s ugly racism.

He’s so angry, like, all the time. Scary bird man.

(You know the thing artists do where they imitate the person’s face as they draw them? Shun’s rage is very tiring to draw.)

So, even with the La*river scene, when Laurel said she was sure "that's one of the reasons why you love her", when they cut to Oliver he has the absolute "I love Felicity" look on his face. Like, even when Felicity is mentioned he's just like "I love her so much, I don't even know what to do with all this love. She's the best. Wow. So amazing."

Okay, I really loved this scene, it was everything I love about Laurel and Oliver on the show at this point, and everything the writers want us to see them as: partners, friends, people who know each other and have a history opening up to each other and sharing things. (Her reaction to Barry traveling through time was amazing, let’s be real.) And that she was there and being supportive of him and Felicity is gorgeous, so gorgeous, and it’s a prelude to her acceptance of William, and possibly being a healing power between him and Felicity.

But yes, this moment:

Was lovely, so lovely, for many reasons. One, she knows Oliver, she does. She knows the kind of women he gravitates towards, the kind of women he falls in love with and she’s on that list because she herself is a strong woman. She knows, and she gets it, because she is Felicity’s friend, she knows the type of person Felicity is. Two, it was so touching, so goddamn touching, because she’s confirming everything Oliver already knows about Felicity. She’s strong, and it was her choice to be on the team, to go on this crusade with him, and blaming himself won’t do shit. Listen, Oliver, jeez.

That last gif… guh, anyone with eyes can see he’s so ridiculously and painfully in love with Felicity Smoak. His nod with the silent, “Yeah,” is everything.
