@shadowhunters-official has a lot of loose strings and I’m upset with s2 as a whole to be perfectly honest. What I’d like to see happen:
Simon works on who he is as a person and learns to appreciate the people who love and help him
Raphael is no longer the show’s personal punching bag (no more abuse)
Izzy saves herself from addiction with the help and support of her family and friends
Clary stops sabotaging and controlling everyone around her, she remains single until she can work through her issues
Luke is allowed to properly grieve over Jocelyn and doesn’t have to deal with Cleo and Clary’s nonsense
Valentine is killed off for good
Jace begins to heal his emotional wounds and Maryese hugs him often, she mothers him a lot. He is allowed to move back into the institute
Maryese learns to accept Magnus in her son’s life and copes from her husband cheating on her, Izzy dotes on her
Alec learns to use his words instead of his hands when there’s a conflict and he and Magnus talk it out like adults when they have a disagreement, they have consensual sex where he doesn’t push Magnus into the bedroom when Magnus clearly wants to discuss it first
Aldertree is punished for his crimes and Izzy and Raphael are there to witness his shame
Izzy apologizes to Raphael’s clan for her actions in s1
Lydia steps up as the new Institute leader and is damn good at it
Meliorn returns and has parts outside of just being used by Isabelle Lightwood
Izzy stops manipulating others into getting what she wants and understands No means no
Maia has a bigger speaking role and story outside of a romantic plotline (let her geek and boss ass bitch wolf side show, show her interacting with the pack and laughing)
Simon finally apologizes (profusely) to Raphael for betraying him, treating him like garbage, blaming him for everything. He goes home to DuMort (if the clan is okay with it)
Elaine Lewis’ alcoholism is addressed and her children are there to help her overcome it, they visit more often, she and Raphael have more scenes together
Magnus and Raphael bond over their past traumas
Lily and the female vampires get speaking roles
Izzy and Clary make nice with one another
The creepy surrogate lady goes poof because she was okay with essentially letting Clary get raped
Alec and Magnus adopt the little girl with the gills (when they’re ready for that step as a couple)
Downworlders are treated with respect and dignity by the shadow world
Minority characters are given storylines that don’t include being a glorified drug dealer (Raphael) or the person who constantly has to pick up after everyone’s messes (Magnus)
No more white savior complex (aka Clary ‘fixing’ things for Luke/Cleo)
Clace needs to either be eliminated or greatly repaired (let’s do away with the sibling storyline)
Simon makes peace with being a vampire and is okay with it
The vampires, shadowhunters and wolves learn to tolerate one another
Magnus gets to throw a lavish party that goes exactly as planned, he is thanked for his efforts
Queer ships are no longer ambiguous and are not used to garner views without going through with it
Clary apologizes to everyone she has hurt
Raphael apologizes to Simon over the whole Kill them thing
Simon and Magnus screen time (pals)
Allow Izzy to go to the Iron Sisters and fulfill her childhood dream
More religious!Simon and religious!Raphael as their religions are a huge part of who they are
The clave needs to be broken down and rebuilt (by Lydia)
No more of Raphael physically pushing Simon around
Elaine Lewis finally gets that family dinner with Clary, Raphael and Simon (she makes pot roast)
Elaine learns of Jocelyn’s death and grieves
Simon comes out as both pansexual and a vamp and his family accepts him (after the shock of the revelations)
More scenes involving Magnus being a bad ass old as the hills warlock
Camille’s abuse of Simon, Magnus and Raphael is addressed and understood that it’s not okay
Magnus and Alec are given some well earned fluffy boyfriend storylines without drama
Maia and Luke scenes
Raphael’s sexuality is mentioned and treated with respect
Raphael and Simon speak in their native language more
So I can’t stop thinking of Raphael meeting the Lewis Family!
Like bubbie Helen asking “So I’m guessing you’re not Jewish” and Raphael answering “I’m Catholic Ma’am” and she stares at him but then they start to have a friendly conversation, Raphael talks about his family and at the end of the dinner Raphael promise bubbie Helen to take her to bingo night.
Elaine Lewis is delighted, she really likes Raphael, she thinks it’s a good influence on Simon.
Raphael is lowkey trying to impress everyone, so he starts talking about his job, apart from being Simon’s “Manager.”
Simon was really nervous, but at the end, he thinks his family likes more Raphael than him
after the dinner, Rebecca hugs Simon and whisper in his ear “well at least one of us found a cute young man to bring home.”
Elaine makes Simon and Raphael promise to come back more often, at this point Simon thinks that his mom wants to adopt Raphael

Update: Matthew Lewis has posted the same photos as his brother but with different filters as well as a new photo on his Instagram (and also Twitter).
Willow Creek is a completely CC free save file that includes my own builds and families. Since I won’t be playing Sims 4 anymore - I love the building side of it but I find the gameplay extremely dull (could be the no seasons or pets and limited interactions thing it’s got going on) I have decided to upload my files somewhere safe for those who may be interested in having them. I will be deleting my game permanently from my PC and since I believe this leads to llama icons in the gallery I am uploading this nice safe save file instead with nothing to do with the gallery!
The file is completely CC free - I rejigged some of my old builds to be cc free.
I am 100% thanking Jenba for figuring out how to even upload and create a game save file in the first place. Without her own amazing upload, which you can find here my sims 4 downloads would have been completely wiped from the community.
EPs: Get to Work, Get Together, City Living, Vampires
GPs: Outdoor Retreat, Spa Day, Dine Out
SPs: Luxury Party, Perfect Patio, Cool Kitchen, Spooky Stuff (not much), Movie Hangout, Romantic Garden, Kids Room, Backyard Stuff, Bowling Night Stuff (don’t think it’s needed - I paid for it and never used it - wahhhhh), Vintage Glamour Stuff
erm, I think that is all of them…….I don’t own the new parenthood one
You do NOT need to download or install any of the lots separately to make this save work - they are already installed as part of the save - also unless they are on my simsfileshare account I believe they are gone?
Feel free to delete the households or lots, or save them to your library and remove my save file. Really don’t mind
I haven’t touched the Goth, Spencer-Kim-Lewis or Pancake families - they just have new homes, or, well, for the Pancakes no home at all atm, so give them one!
For more pics see my sims 4 downloads tag on my simblr page.
1. IMPORTANT!!! Back up your Save files before doing anything else, just in case things go wonky. Just copy and paste them somewhere safe. (You can find your Saves folder in the following location for PC: \Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4)
2. Download the “Illawara_WillowCreek_GameSave_noCC.zip” file.
3. Using a program like WinZIP or WinRAR, extract the “Illawara_WillowCreek_GameSave_noCC” folder somewhere safe.
4. Open the “Illawara_WillowCreek_FameSave_noCC” folder. Copy the file within (Slot_00000003.save) and paste it into your \Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\saves folder.
5. Start your game. From the main menu, click on “Load Game”. You should see “Illawara_Willow Creek SAVE No CC” as an option on the menu. You may have to scroll down past your other saves to find it (it has a date of 1.09PM 13/06/2017).
6. Select “Illawara_Willow Creek Save NO CC” and load the save.
7. Feel free to “Save as” and rename it to something else.
NOTE: Please don’t claim anything as your own. I don’t mind you using the lots or sims as a base, but don’t pretend they’re your own work just because they don’t exist on the gallery anymore.
I have tested this. I have removed all my tray files and deleted and restored the save file, but if you have any trouble, please let me know!
Based on @ectoimp‘s absorbing AU sketches (Most of which can be found here!).
I’m giving credit and kudos to @arthur-tristan-kingsmen, @phantoms-lair, @answrs and of course, the illustrious @ectoimp for some of the discourse which guided the idea from vague AU to the story that does not want to stop running through my head. And for constantly adding new cute headcanons that are promising to make this longer.
Summary: At first all he knew was darkness— rage, pain and the ultimate sting of betrayal. And then Lewis opened his eyes…
•They’re both on top on the world.
•Both are outstanding racing drivers.
•Both are emotional about their sport.
•Both love what they do.
•Both have respect for each other.
•Both want to be THE champion.
•Both can be egostic and an arse.
And exactly that makes this sportsmanship so tense.
The only thing that’s so different between them is their lifestyle.
Sebastian is settled with a family, Lewis isn’t.
Can we actually just talk about Simon Lewis for a second? Simon Lewis who is Jewish, is a comic book nerd, who lives and breathes music. Simon Lewis who loves his family more than anything. Simon who is in a band, Simon who is better with a guitar than he us with flirting. Simon who has been in love with Clary since the day he laid eyes on her.
Simon Lewis who never had the guts to speak his feelings, so poured them into music. Simon Lewis who followed Clary into a world of danger, a world where one can die within seconds if they look at someone in a certain way. Simon Lewis who stood up to guys ten times his size for the sake of his best friend. Simon Lewis who, even when kidnapped by a gang of vampires still can’t shut up. Simon Lewis who loves with his whole heart, dead or undead. Simon Lewis who lost his everything he knew, but stayed for Clary. Clary who tore his heart to pieces,unknowingly.
Simon Lewis is pretty bloody awesome, don’t you think?
