Do you favor hot tea or cold tea drinks (iced tea, tea lattes, etc)? Sugar or no sugar in your tea? Boba, tapioca pearls, or jellies? Green, black, white, or herbal? Flavor-wise do you prefer fruity, nutty, spiced, grassy, or other? Do you use a stove-top kettle, single cup brewer, or other method?
can you talk about your fave alec moments from 2a?
Oh man. There’s so much, there’s basically too much – I didn’t actually think there
was that much, but wow there’s actually so much because literally every Alec
scene is my favourite scene as I am a simple girl with easy standards. But I’ll try to, like, not talk for six thousand years. Let’s
see how it goes lmao.
#1 Best Top Alec Scene of All Time
Ever: Alec v. Aldertree, 2x09
Oh man. Oh man. This was…this was such a gift…I
can’t even describe how I feel about it adequately. Like our boy is a saltine
at the best of times, but that aspect is sort of is tempered by his forced
respect for authority (which is a whole nother conversation which I’ve talked
about a few times) – so against an authority figure, in the past, Alec has been
sort of passive-aggressive (for lack of a better word); like in 1x09, he stares
down Lydia and hands the folder to his mom against her command, and in 2x01 he
still takes Lydia’s dismissal instead of contesting it. So I like this scene
especially because you see him coming out of that, but it’s not OOC or
anything, firstly because shedding his adherence to authority has been a part
of his arc since 1x12 (and was reinforced in 2x08 with his conflicts with his
mother), and also – and more significantly imo – it’s because of his family.
So that “I’ll do anything for my sister,” authoritative,
salty as fuck Alec just taking his Institute back that this
scene brought out is my favouriteever Alec and I hope he’s here to stay.
(Actually, I hope we see him struggle a bit more with his identity as a
Shadowhunter, his duty to the Clave and his parents and following orders and
the like, since that was a key part of his character in S1 and it would be so
cool to see him actually deal with that, but that’s a whole nother thing as
well). And leader!Alec has always been my favourite Alec, and there’s nothing
more I want to see than Alec being the head of the institute like he deserves
to be (seeing a struggle for power between Alec/the Lightwoods/Aldertree would
be SO NICE too, and I’m actually really interested to see how power is going to
shift hands in 2B in the Institute. Maybe seeing Alec have to navigate the
messy quagmire of Shadowhunter/Clave politics which puts him at odds with the
others who don’t get how complicated it is because the consequences of any insubordination
are going to fall on his shoulders as the leader sorta like how it was in S1. And I’m also kind of interested to see how Alec navigates the whole “preserving the Lightwood honour” thing from last year - how much he values that now compared to the huge lengths he went to for the Lightwood name in the first season. That would be so cool).
honestly, that smirk and that salty little pat on Aldertree’s shoulder ended my
life. It ended my life.
I just put the rest in chronological order but i just had to mention this one first lol so here we goooo
tonight was such a wonderful night considering i could see fuck all for 80% of the concert because we got stuck behind the 5 tallest people on the planet probably and we didn’t arrive until 7 because we were at the pub lmao but i had the best time ever it was one of the best shows i’ve ever been to not just because they played rare prizes but because of the way the whole thing felt and sounded and vibed it was just magical and that goes to show that the music speaks louder than any aesthetic/cosmetic changes they make to the way their records look or how their stage is set up
