What do you think if warriors named after previous warriors who have died? Example; crowfeather(feathertail), leafpool(leafstar/spottedleaf), hollytuft(hollyleaf)?
Like most traditionalists, I’m against it. I’ve never liked the concept of naming children after a deceased loved one to begin with, especially in fiction (fucking Harry Potter). And in a culture like the Clans - where your name means quite literally everything - I hate it even more. A warrior’s name is supposed to represent what makes them unique, what makes them stand out from their peers. To take that away from them because you couldn’t let the memory of a dead cat go is cruel.
Now, in the case of Crowfeather, I can maybe understand. He specifically requested the suffix -feather to honor his friend (who was the only one he really got attached to). But the difference here is that he’s an adult who can make these decisions himself. I still don’t like the idea, but he knows exactly what he’s doing and he has the emotional maturity to bear that name with the history that it has. That’s okay.
But to do that to an innocent kitten who can’t give their consent? Absolutely not.
i love the idea of alec continuing to be an impulsive kisser, even after the wedding. he’s spent so long denying that part of himself, not allowing himself to feel, and now he’s got this beautiful man in front of him who reciprocates those very feelings.
magnus would be talking, recalling one of his many stories, when alec’s gaze drops to his lips and stays there, and before either of them realise what’s happened alec breaks from the trance and their lips are touching.
the first few hasty kisses aren’t perfect, alec rushing forward and shocking magnus, but it doesn’t take long for magnus to get with the program and start leaning in to meet him half way, no matter how impulsive alec gets.
it’s great how you’re never allowed to criticize lgbt+ representation for their racism (whether lowkey or not) without the risk of people calling you homophobic as if there is no such thing as non white lgbt+ people
Can we talk about Amethyst in this episode though? She usually clashes so often with Pearl, but in this case she literally defended her when Pearl admitted that she lied. And remember that part… where Amethyst looks down a bit sadly and says “No, I don’t think that’s it” when Steven asks if Pearl wanted to learn about the communication hub. And I think it’s because Amethyst relates to her. She really gets Pearl, because she feels the same way herself.
She basically says, “We both feel stronger with you” and I think it’s because fusing with Garnet makes them both feel like they’re loved, and Pearl wanted to keep doing that. Amethyst feels the same way. Both of them struggle with serious issues of inferiority and feeling unwanted, and fusing with Garnet seems to alleviate that, if even a little.
shadowhunters season finale idea: magnus’s and alec’s date. literally just their date. 40mins of pure, adorable happiness as we watch them take their chance to fall in love. no angst is to be seen. jace and clary mourn about their incest elsewhere. valentine who?
