you can totally see the moment alec realises he has fucked up. after the 1st "honesty" magnus uses, his face freezes completely. do you think alec should have apologised? he probably thinks he has done the only possible thing...
I think when Alec contemplated what to do in his head it all sounded “fine” and reasonable and it was best to keep it like that, you know? But then Magnus confronted him dead on and he just didn’t know what to do or say because I think he realized… maybe the plan he had in his head wasn’t as great as he thought it was? Like… as you said, you can totally see the moment when Alec is like…. fuuuuuck.
I think the great thing about this argument is that you can totally get both sides. This is not a black or white decision. You can’t say Alec was wrong. I get why he did it, why he kept that info from Magnus (the only thing that really bugged me that Alec told it Clary and Jace of all people, like please….). But I also understood Magnus and why he is so hurt. Which he is so much because that line with it runs in the family? I think he could have just stabbed Alec on the spot and it would have hurt him less.
I don’t know how they are going to fix this, I only know that they will because that’s what they do. That’s what you do when you love someone, you will work this out with your partner. And honestly? I cannot wait.
