alec punching raphael? hell to the no, i hope magnus won't let that pass
Honestly yes. I’ve seen posts on my dash that are willing to excuse Alec’s behaviour, that because it’s his sister that it is completely fine for him to go around lashing at Magnus and punching Raphael for something which has a lot of negative associations attached to it.
Of course I understand that Alec is protective of Isabelle, that’s his sister, but don’t go around lashing out just because you didn’t notice what Isabelle was struggling with. Not with Magnus tried to give Isabelle an out earlier on, not when Raphael went out of his way to make sure Isabelle was okay. He was there for her when no one was, he wanted to help get her out of that situations and instead Isabelle played him (consent issues here because that was not okay) and after that too Raphael shared things about his past, things that he would have rather forget, but he did try and help her. Raphael owes the shadowhunters nothing. Keep reminding yourself that when you’re there preaching about why it’s absolutely fine that Alec is punching Raphael.
Raphael owes them shit. Isabelle and Clary betrayed Raphael, Clary used Raphael to get blood for Jace, and then used Simon to get Camille from Raphael. After what Isabelle did to Raphael in 1x13, I’m surprised Raphael even bothered to help her out, but he did because he sympathised. So you know what, Alec Lightwood can have a nice chat with himself and what he’s doing, because I’m not going to support it one bit, (my opinion, sorry).
Also if Isabelle is Alec’s sister than Raphael is Magnus’ son. And I do hope Magnus doesn’t let it pass. Because you can see how much Magnus cares about Raphael, he literally raised him up. So yeah. I’m not saying it, because I’m gonna get hate either way, but I don’t agree one bit with Alec punching Raphael and I hope Magnus steps in.
