I know a lot of people who watch this show have strong opinions, hell I’m guilty of that too. But I would like to take a moment to appreciate that even though it’s not perfect, the people involved with this show are trying so hard.
And I think we sometimes don’t appreciate it enough.
This show took a book series full of metaphors for racism and saw the almost entirely white cast and thought, hey, I know how we can improve this
They cast Latina actors for the main family, even though in terms of the race metaphors, Shadowhunters are ‘white’
They have written multiple interracial couples where neither character is white
Even though they had to keep the incest plot (ugh) for story purposes, they didn’t glorify it the way the books did
The saw a gay couple that had been poorly handled and always pushed to the background or offscreen and instead made sure to give their romance subplot development pretty much each episode
They showed a healthy gay, interracial relationship, where both parties talk and listen and learn from each other
The have an openly bisexual character that doesn’t cheat
^and on that note, the cast have corrected people in the past for calling Magnus gay and actually used the word bisexual
They show casual touches and kisses between a gay couple
The saw a character that so many read as asexual, and saw the author brush us off, and decided to go, you know what, if you think he’s ace, he’s ace
And they debunked myths about asexuality while doing so
They have religious characters who speak openly about their religion
They show characters dealing with addiction
Yes, every so often they misjudge, sometimes they don’t do exactly what the fans want, but everyone involved tries so fucking hard to make this show amazing.
Tl;dr: It may not be perfect, but I think sometimes we get caught up and expect too much. Because this show is trying harder than most others on TV and every so often it deserves our thanks.
I can’t stop thinking about ‘it’s quite surreal’, and 'amazing, yeah. This is incredible, isn’t it?’ Because that’s how Sam and Anthony were last year. And they lost it so fast because people are awful.
With Theo and Samuel we have two young men, at the start of their career, and I just think that as a fandom we should be respectful of them and not invasive or over-excitable or rude or any of the other countless things we could do to them.
They’re human beings, doing a job that should probably be the most amazing, fun job in the world. And it looks like they’re going to be spectacular at it. But can we remember that they are just that? Human beings doing a job. They’re not toys. They’re not play things. They’re not characters. They’re not for us to speculate over or ship. They’re people with lives and families and friendships.
So can we please be kind to them and show them we care about them and value them, and not drive them away and make them jaded? Let them have this amazing experience without us ruining it for them.
They’re so young. And they deserve to enjoy themselves and keep the wonder we saw in the video today. Is that so much to ask? Can people please be nice?
I didn’t see this process play out from the beginning last time, but I know it’s coming this time and it’s horrible. It’s beginning already, and I hate everything about it.

the amount of people i had to block bc of hate in ship tags is ridiculous
in all seriousness, tell me
why do people feel the need to tell me what i shouldn’t ship because they don’t
why do people feel the need to try making me feel bad about something i like and they don’t
why do people feel the need to doubt my mental health because of a ship they don’t ship
why do people feel the need to post ‘i rly hate this ship it sucks lol ur all sick’ in the tag that only people who love this ship are tracking
why do people feel the need to post hate at all
i’m not sick or mentally disturbed for liking a ship that doesn’t fit your perception of an 'appropriate’ ship thank you. actually, insulting and talking shit about people’s mental health because of something that they enjoy and doesn’t harm anyone and only exists in a fandom fantasy you don’t agree with is gross as fuck, stop it
