also one last thing: what makes this downworld family thing 10x better is the fact that magnus is 400+ while raphael is 70+ and simon is 18. in the downworld that’s literally like a Legal Adult™, a Teenager™ and a Toddler™ respectively …..
Do you think there's a way we could let the writers know about this issue? I don't want to watch this show become as problematic as the books and the movie...
I wouldn’t discourage ppl from tweeting and writing but I wouldn’t expect much to come out of it either honestly especially since 2A is long done. But I think twitter is the easiest way to reach the cast and crew?
tbh, the way it’s going now isn’t too different than the way a lot of genre shows are; I’ve watched these types shows since X-Files and Buffy and I’m pretty used to this lack of care when it comes to poc. It’s just disappointing that we kind of have to take our rep where we can get it instead of being able to enjoy everything in full.
I’d just like ONE show where my Asian lead isn’t surrounded by bad writing decisions but at least I can be mostly assured Magnus isn’t going to be completely fucked over like Glenn Rhee. Like, it’s sad that the media bar is so low that despite everything, Shadowhunters still pulls out ahead of other similar shows solely on the back of Magnus Bane’s presence. There still isn’t a single character like him anywhere else in popular Western media but it’s really such a compromise when the rest is so messy.

•*replays video 10 ten times to figure out what they’re saying*
•teachers asking, “why do you always stop writing in the middle of a sentence, just write down whatever I’m saying,” followed by the response, “I’m just processing it,” rebuked by, “we’ll stop processing it and just write.”
