no matter how many times someone can say that pointing out racism is not a personal attack, people tend to take the side of the person who committed whatever racist action.
and like, it bears repeating: pointing out that something written was racist is not a personal attack. it’s disappointing that fandom genuinely would rather protect the feelings of the person that committed the action than the POC that are ultimately the ones hurt and alienated from fandom by racism.
but lmao that requires too much nuance and compassion for marginalized people
If there is no TMI book series that the show was based on, then Clace would’ve make next to zero sense. It’s just another one of those cliche main character fell in first crush/lust with the golden boy trope… that sooner or later they would matured more and drifted apart to be with those who are more suitable with them and their needs.
UNfortunately most fans were influenced by books and refused to see the show as a body of its own and that unlike in books, characters in the show would develop their own identities and chemistry with each other due to them being actual human beings. For example, Simon and Izzy hardly interact in the show but already people been going on and on about ‘Sizzy’ since from 1st ep.
Climon was doomed from the start as there is little to no support from viewers. Regardless the fact that Clary actually looks happier with Simon and Jace has more chemistry with Maia.
i know Clace is the end game couple.. obviously~.
But the level of hatred against Climon is seriously mental!
Say what you want, Simon don’t deserve to be humiliated and treated like this.. no matter how pretty and hot you think Jace is and how perfect he will be with Clary (honestly for me he needs someone like Maia who would challenge him and keep him on his toes and gives more depth to his character)
Yes, I know there’ll be Sizzy (maybe) and Clary will just be his friend again.
But the way it gonna happens makes me feel… sad for Simon.
Fans are so impatient.
They want Climon to end NOW and for Clary to jump straight into Jace’s arms - forgetting that she needs to step away from relationships for a while.. to just be independent and grow up a little.. to find out and make sure who and what she truly wants and needs.
They want Sizzy to happen NOW - disregarding the fact that Simon needs time to recover from getting his heart broken and..humiliation (Imagine, someone you’ve been in love with forever, finally thought you are finally worth it and convinced that they feel the same and found out, nope. Sorry, you’re never gonna be good enough AND to found out so publicly..), for Izzy to find and be her own person again.
They want Malec to live together NOW NOW NOW and adopt Madzie and other 3.5 Downworlder kids.. ignoring the fact that IF Alec moves in with Magnus, it means he wont be the leader of the institute anymore (yes, i know there are people saying that he can stay with Magnus AND be the leader at the same time. Sorry, it doesn’t work that way, okay.. Alec is on shaky ground as it is with his fellow Shadowhunters - what with him dating a male Downworlder and sudden promotion to be the leader - add him moving out of the Institute into his BOYFRIEND (the warlock) place on top of that? they’ll be questioning his integrity and dedication to the Institute for sure!).. and how on earth could they ever adopt a child when their own life is still so chaotic - not to mentioned, Magnus loves Alec so much but still can’t quite trusts Alec is feeling the same.
I am NOT saying that your OTP is wrong/shouldn’t happen.
But give them space.. and time to grow up. To develop that chemistry on their own..
They’re not just 2D characters on papers anymore- there, open and available to be changed and manipulated to suits the author’s whims and fancies at any given time.
They’re now actual living persons.
We can see all the happy laughter and frustrated tears and those warm shine in their eyes when they look at their loved ones (Harry is amazing at showing this).
Each of them deserves to be respected (and loved) as individual character.. rather than just the other 50% of a couple.
Fans want the characters to be relatable and realistic.. but their expectations of the characters development are irrational.
They want good plot but at the same time complaint that things aren’t moving at speed of light.
A/N: I have no idea what I wanted for this imagine. It started out as something and ended as something else. Send some ideas for imagines. Warning: A little cursing
“Is this why my boyfriend in such a bad mood?” You asked as you walked into the infirmary. Seeing that there was a random redhead laying down in one of the beds. “When is he not in a bad mood” Jace said rolling his eyes. “Oh shut up Jace, who is she?” You asked “You could of just asked me” said the redhead sitting on the bed “but I didn’t, so who is she?” “Her names Clary Y/N” Izzy said as she stood up next to you. “She a shadowhunter just like us but she didn’t know”“ “You know this how?” You asked. Izzy pointed at Clary shoulder and there above was the iratze rune. Well she have to be a shadowhunter to survive that you thought. “Okay wait if she didn’t know she was shadowhunter who put the healing rune on her” you questioned. “Jace did, is that bad?” Clary said “Jace! You didn’t even know she was a shadowhunter you could of killed the poor girl. What in the world were you thinking?” You yelled. How could he be so thoughtless. “I had a feeling she was like us so I burn it on her after she got bitted by the demon.” He said shrugging his shoulders. “A FEELING! Well that would of done much if she had to died, You got lucky Wayland” you said as you turn to leave. “At least tell the girl about everything so she knows what going on” you added in before you actually left the room. “There’s more to know?” Clary asked the two standing in front of her. “Not really she didn’t know we told you most of it before she came” Jace replied “Who is she? And are most of shadowhunter this rude because that make two out of the four I have met.” “Her name is Y/N but you probably heard me say that to her, she’s a friend of ours and she also my parabatai. And no most of them are kind so is Y/N she just really stressed with everything at the moment.” Izzy told her. “But the first one you met Alec he’s always like that but trust me he just as kind when you get to know him. He just likes to hide it” “Why is she stressed and you guys aren’t? Aren’t you guys a team?” “She getting married we aren’t” Izzy said pulling Clary to her feet “Now let’s show you around”
You walked into yours and Alec shared bedroom after your long day.All you wanted was to see Alec. But he wasn’t there as you walked in, he probably was with Jace trying to figured out how to help the new girl. You started to get ready for bed you changed your clothes and we’re just finishing brushing your teeth when Alec walked into the room. “I heard that you were rude today what’s wrong baby?” Alec asked as he wrapped his arms around you and you laid your head on his chest. “I’ve been so stressed with this wedding planning and The Clave it’s all starting to get to me” you said. It was turning you in to a new person. All you wanted to do was sleep now knowing Alec was here with you. “How about you get some rest and I’ll try to help you with some of the planning tomorrow” “Thank you so much Alec” you said giving him a kiss. You and Alec both got in to bed. He held you close while he started to talk about his day, you slowly fell asleep to his comforting voice. You woke up the next morning and Alec wasn’t there. It was nothing unusual since one of you usually had to get up early for a meeting or mission. You got up and quickly got dress and headed to the main room. As you walk in you could see Alec with Clary, Jace, Izzy and another person crowded around a table in the back so no one would pay attention to them. “Why are you guys doing?” You asked as you walked up to them causing all of them to jump. “Oops sorry about that” you said holding back a laugh. “Who this?” You asked as you point towards the brown haired boy. “He’s my best friend Simon” Clary spoke while looking at you with a glare. Yup you deserve that after yesterday. “We’re trying to find away for Clary to get back her memories ” Jace told you. “Why don’t you try the Silent Brothers.” You suggest. Alec and them all look at you wondering why they didn’t think of that in the first place. “Silent Brothers?” Clary asked no one in particular. “Their hard to explain but they could get your memories back” Izzy answers “Let’s go find them” Clary said turning around. “Wait, you don’t know anything about them. What they do could kill you if you aren’t strong enough” you shouted, maybe it was the wrong idea to suggest that. “You don’t think I’m strong enough” Clary said walking up to you. “I never said you in particular, but if you aren’t strong enough it will kill you, your at higher rate since you known about this world for then less a day” you said to her looking at her in the face. “So you think I’m some weak girl that doesn’t know about anything” Clary said getting more and more angry. “Not anything about this world that’s for sure. You haven’t been train to fight at all I could probably knock you on your ass in seconds” you said keeping your ground “Well why don’t you try” Clary said getting ready to fight. It wouldn’t look to good for you if you were caught fighting in the middle of the main room but you weren’t just going to back down from a fight. You were about to throw a punch at her but Alec held you back and Jace did the same thing with Clary. “Would you two stop” Izzy asked but it didn’t really work. “You know nothing about this world and thinking you can just walk in and own the place is ridiculous.” You said trying to get out of Alec’s hold but it was no used he was way stronger then you. Clary didn’t really know what to said but she did remember something that Isabelle said the day before. “At least I know about important things like being kind people since I got here you been nothing but a cold hearted bitch to me, for what I’ve done nothing to you. Your fiancé probably only marrying you because he knows that no one could ever love someone without a soul or he just as bitchy and rude as you are” Clary shouted now getting the attention of everyone in the room. Izzy and theirs mouths drop. How could she say something like that you thought and so did everyone else. Alec’s gripped around you loosely from the shock of what she just said about him even if she didn’t know it was him. You step away from Alec and said “Go to Silent Brothers and get killed I don’t care, and for the record it takes a cold hearted bitch to know one” with that you ran out of the room not even looking back. “Clary” Jace said looking at the girl. He didn’t know what to say “Leave” Alec said “What?” Clary asked “I said leave now, leave the institute. You are no longer welcome here” Alec told Clary “You can’t just kicked her out Alec” Jace shot back “Why not? She try to start a fight and call the head of the institute at the moment awful seems to me that she doesn’t want to be here so she shouldn’t be.” Alec answer “Wait now I never said anything about the-” Clary stopped for a second then said “She marrying the head of the institute, wow he must be something else to marry her.Where is he anyway?” “I’m standing right in front of you” Alec said glaring at Clary. Clary looked like she sunk smaller since that came out of Alec mouth. “I didn’t really me-” Clary started but Alec stopped her. “Go with her Jace and see the brothers but The Clave will be hearing about all of this.” Alec replied. “Everyone get back to work” Everyone stopped watching and turn back to their work quietly talking about what just happen. “Excuse me now while I try and find my fiancé” Alec said as he left the room “Your going to be in big trouble” Izzy said as she looked at the two in front of her.
Alec walked up to the garden knowing that’s where you went to calm down all the time. He saw you sitting on bench over looking the city. “Hey” he said as he sat down beside you, you laid your head on his shoulder. “Am I really a bitch that your only marrying because you think no one else will?” You asked even thou you knew the answer. “No don’t ever think that, your my everything I fell in love with you.” He told you as he intertwine his hand with yours. “I love you Alec Lightwood” “I love you too Y/N soon to be Lightwood”
Finally, The Day has come. Ok, I’m soooo bad at editing, so this is the best I can do! This is my favorite day of the year. Literally guys, it’s like Christmas!
55 years ago, Jeffrey Dean Isbell aka Izzy Stradlin was born in LaFayette, Indiana. You moved to L.A. and became a great musician and a great songwriter, and I can’t tell how happy I am that you did that. You followed your dreams and made them true! Even if you ruined my life (years ago) here I am wishing you my best wishes. You inspire me, you make me smile, laugh, cry, and love.
So happy 55th birthday, you wonderful human being.
I love you more than everything. ❤
