alec lightwood’s character development is honestly so healing?? like this man who was a fuckin emo piece of shit in s1, who was grumpy and closeted and sad, decides to be himself and come out and guess what?? instead of it turning into A Sob Story with everyone judging him and him being even sadder than before, everything turns out so well?
he finds the love of his life, he gets put into a position of power, he develops self worth and confidence and he struggles with his mental illness and he tries and he lives with it like???? i’m so proud of him? and guess what?
he’s actually happy
bottom line: alexander gideon lightwood? 10/10, would stan again
