I just need to let some things off my chest… I’ve seen so much negativity in these tags lately and it just feels awful.
People are complaining about every little thing lately. The episodes for 2A have already been filmed and edited. There is NOTHING anyone can do about it now. No one knew people would have the reactions they are. For me, I saw nothing wrong with 2x07 or 2x08.
I thought all the scenes were sweet. I saw that Magus was hesitant of losing Alec but not hesitant of having sex. There is a big difference there and I think a lot of people didn’t understand that or it was misinterpreted. There WAS consent. It may not have been verbal but it was a physical consent. If you think Magnus Bane would let someone take advantage of him, you clearly don’t know his character very well. Same goes with Alec; if you thought he would ‘push himself‘ onto Magnus and force sex… You clearly don’t know his character either. Alec was just trying to be confident and not overthink things and I thought they showed that pretty well. I think they didn’t show a ‘sex scene’ because it was Alec’s first time. It’s personal. I thought it was the smartest thing to do. Let the audience fill in the gaps to how things went. I’m sure in the future episodes that are CURRENTLY being filmed, you will see more. Just have faith in the actors and the writers. They work bloody hard to try and keep everyone happy. With the latest episode, I’ve seen people questioning whether or not it happened and that Magnus and Alec seem awkward about it because Alec told Izzy there was nothing to talk about. Back in season 1, Izzy told Alec that he never talks about his personal life with her. Jump to this episode; nothing has changed. Yes, he asked her for advice in 2x07 which was a huge step for him but I don’t think he’s going to start talking about his sex life with his sister anytime soon. That would be very out of character.
It upsets me so much that everyone is finding such small things to complain about and tear into the actors/writers about. They aren’t being homophobic, that is just ridiculous. If they were you wouldn’t even have half the Malec scenes you get. Come on now. The writers are doing a fantastic job. They love this show, those characters just as much as everyone else.
Let’s stop with all the negativity in these tags now. Bring on more positive posts about how sweet Alec and Magnus are together and how healthy their relationship is.
Feel free the message me your opinions. I’m up for a healthy discussion about the show. I know a lot of people will disagree with me, so I’m happy to hear everyone out! :)
