season 2 please

a path into the light (2)

Previously on Shadowhunters season 2 (if you don’t read this, this won’t make sense)

fandom: shadowhunters

rel: magnus/alec, various platonic relationships

summary: 

“You think Camille did this?”

“It’s definitely possible,” Luke replies. “That, or she’s got other vamps doing her dirty work. Either way, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the victim was a friend of yours.”

Or: Magnus and Alec make plans for their first date, Luke and Isabelle investigate the influx of dead bodies drained of blood that are popping up all over Brooklyn, Simon and Raphael have a chat, and Jace and Clary deal with their realization. “Episode” 2 of my season 2 rewrite.

What gives me hope

One thing I loved about the ending to Yuri on Ice (apart from the beautiful pair skate) is this

Yuuri is still wearing his ring.

Even after the Grand Prix Final ended, Yuuri is still wearing his ring.

Even weeks after that, after he moved to Russia to train and live with Victor, Yuuri is still wearing his ring.

If you ever needed proof that it’s an engagement ring and not a mere “good luck charm” then here it is, in all its canon glory.

And the promise to get married after Yuuri wins gold, still stands.

—  Can’t we just stop and argue, now? Be done with it?

—  I don’t want to argue.

I’ve seen a lot of the “Lance’s family immigrated to America” thing in fanfics, but the beach he mentions is in Cuba, so I’ve been thinking…

Please consider: a Lance who isn’t an American citizen. Who grew up watching Florida’s space shuttle launches through a scope his father dragged down to the beach at Varadero. Who literally spent years trying to train away his Cuban accent so he’d have a better chance of being accepted into the world’s most advanced space program. Who has to balance worries about his student visa not being renewed with the challenges of his tough piloting courses. Whose feelings of inferiority to Keith are being badly exacerbated by snide whispers from classmates about how he must have only gotten in on affirmative action. Whose disappearance causes an international incident between America and Cuba.

(And maybe also: A Lance who’s able to automatically accept Galra!Keith not just because “Ooh fuzzy <3” but because he knows exactly what xenophobia and racism feel like–knows exactly what it’s like to be treated like an alien in the one place he most wanted to belong, and he refuses to ever make someone else feel the way he did.)

Just sayin’.
