I’m done with this god damn hate spreading through the fandom about how they handled the Malec sex scene. YES THEY COULDVE HANDLED IT BETTER AND YES THEY COULDVE WRITTEN IT DIFFERENTLY BUT THEYRE NOW GETTING INTO THE HEART OF THE STORY. They can’t fit everything in 40 minutes guys please understand that. This fandom is literally stooping to the level of the book!fandom and it’s starting to not only piss me off but really start to upset me. There’s literally nothing we can do to change the first half of season 2 but guess what? THEYRE SHOOTING 2B RIGHT NOW AND THAT MEANS THEY CAN STILL CHANGE SHIT. Voice your concerns to them now and make sure they do it better and not fuck up. For the love of God please just…..STOP SPREADING HATE. I REFUSE to see something as pure as this fandom be infected and poisoned like the damn book fandom is. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Voice your concerns but STOP THE DAMN HATE. Not only are we making fellow fans uncomfortable but we’re making the writers and directors feel like shit but have you stopped to think about how Matt and Harry are feeling about this? They work so damn hard to give Malec the representation they deserve and they work long and hard to not turn this fandom into the book!fandom. We all need to learn to respect that and voice our concerns civilly and not harshly. Let them know to change that in 2B. We can’t change 2A. Accept it. Now for the Izzy being addicted to Yin Fin thing? Just because she’s played by a Latina actress doesn’t mean it’s racist. If she was played by a white actress or a black actress or an Arabian or Asian one, the story still would’ve been the same thing. She would still be addicted to Yin Fin. This season is all about character development (THAT MEANS BOTH GOOD AND BAD) and that’s what they’ve been doing. Developing the characters. Clary and Jace are learning to love each other as siblings and move on. Clary is making split second decisions that usually fuck things up. Jace is being a douche because he’s been forced out of the institute and the field. Alec killed Clary’s mom and obviously is not handling it well considering he almost killed himself because of it. Izzy is going down a dark path BECAUSE OF ALDERTREE TRYING TO TEAR THE NY INSTITUTE APART FROM THE INSIDE. Simon grew a back bone and confessed to Clary while at the same time trying to move on and being called out for it by Maia. Magnus is obviously growing to care about the Shadowhunter group and his relationship with Alec is growing beautifully in the midst of this chaos and we’re getting bits and pieces of his back story which is amazing. He’s growing to trust the main cast which isn’t something easy for him to do so he’s opening himself up, and it’s wonderful. Luke is still mourning Jocelyn and that’s perfectly fine she was the love of his life, but he’s not gonna let Clary of anyone push him aside and walk over him like a doormat. Guys this is literally a season about changing the characters whether those changes are good or bad. That’s how character development works. That’s how it’s always worked. It can’t all be sunshine and rainbows and happiness. And Alec punching Raphael? We all know Alec is an impulsive person that’s been proven more times in both seasons especially season one. Isabelle and Magnus probably weren’t able to explain the whole situation before Alec immediately went after Raphael. I’m not saying Alec punching him was OK and I’m not trying to defend him but we all know that Alec is an impulsive person, so before you start to go bitch and complain about how he’s handling it just think for a second on how you would handle hearing your baby sister is addicted to drugs and went to a local source someone that’s in the same room with you to help with it. I would be pissed too and I would probably punch him as well. Because Raphael willingly bit Isabelle that first time in the alleyway. That second time? That wasn’t OK because Isabelle literally forced Raphael to bite her because she didn’t have access to Yin Fin and she was desperate so she went to desperate measures. It wasn’t right and she should feel bad and I hope she does because that wasn’t OK that was the drugs clouding her moral compass. I know we aren’t happy about some of the writing and editing mistakes this season but you have to remember that it’s only the first half of season two it’s already been written and it’s already been approved and aired and we can’t change it. We need to stop thinking we can, they are writing and shooting the second half of the season right now and things can still be changed so go let them know to not fuck up this time. So how about we all stop bitching and complaining about how the editing team could’ve done better or how the writers need to get their shit together and how 2A would be better if they did this thing one way and that thing the other and tell them to do better in 2B. Re-blog and spread this around the fandom please. Because even if I have to hold this whole damn fandom up by myself at the foundations so it doesn’t crumble I will gladly do it. I will not let this fandom crumble and become as toxic as the book fandom is. I will not give that satisfaction to Cassandra Claire. And if you really care about this fandom as much as I do you will re-blog and spread this around. I know this is a long post but this needed to be said. This will not be a toxic fandom I refuse to let it become such.
Just keep in that we have five (six for some) more days till the next episode of Shadowhunters and we very well may get more Malec than the latest episode gave us. On top of that Matt said we delve deeper into the characters and their fears. And that one scene in the promo? With Alec standing on the roof ledge? We may very well get a touching scene between Alec and Magnus. Because who else has been in that same position as Alec? Magnus. On Blackfriars bridge just a little over a century or so ago. The sex thing will also be addressed next episode as well. Did they or did they not have sex? We’ll have to wait a little longer for complete conformation. If they did and they don’t show at least the morning after? Yeah I’m gonna be pissed. If they didn’t and Magnus stopped it? Yes I’ll be satisfied just as much as I will be if they show the morning after and communication. Malec is still the healthiest LGBT relationship I’ve seen on TV my entire life. I’m not saying get your hopes up but I am saying keep an open mind like me. Yes they could’ve definitely handled it differently but i don’t believe it was their intention to be homophobic or push Malec aside just to get views. Look at what they’ve done with Malec so far? I think both the writers and the showrunners deserve a little more faith from us. I’m not defending god no. Malec deserves better and they made a mistake, a big one. They should own up to it and just give us clear answers. They might be too embarrassed or they might intentionally be vague like they are because it’s gonna be addressed next Monday and they don’t wanna spoil it. So please, please be more patient? Be a little more open minded? I’m not saying get your hopes up, I’m not, just please wait and be patient and see where next week takes us. And PLEASE NO MORE HATE TOWARDS THE WRITERS AND SHOWRUNNERS. It’s one thing to voice your concerns, it’s another to be mean and bully them. We’re better than this guys please I don’t wanna see us fall from our hypothetical throne. We’re so much better than this, we still are!!! I refuse to see us become mean and unhealthy and unkind like I’ve seen most fandoms become. We most definitely are NOT THE BOOK FANDOM. The writers and Showrunners of Shadowhunters ARE NOT CC. Please don’t make them out to be and don’t stoop to her level.
Okay. Now that my rants over I can relax. Keep this in mind my loves. We’ll see what happens next week.
So, shadowhunters S3 lost 4 writers. We have no idea the reasons leading up to this. Writers do come and go, in a tv show. So, I wouldn’t panic. But, I would however advice fandom to be careful how you express your disappointment over a choice of writing or what not. There is always a way to be respectful and there is always a way to be disrespectful. Not saying, writers left because of fandom. Just saying that we have new writers and they are going to learn real quick how harsh fandom can be. So, instead of showing the nasty side, show them the good side.
writers we lost:Zac Hug, Hollie Overton, Michael Reisz, & Shireen Razack.
The new/old writers for S3:
Bryan Q Miller, Jamie Gorenberg, Brian Millikin, Peter Binswanger, Aisha Porter Christie, Alex Schemmer, Taylor Mallory, Celeste Vasquez, & assistant writer Zoe Board.
** Shireen & Michael were also executive producers, so they may have stepped down from writing, but could still be producing. **
For @abloodneed, one of the most amazing, beautiful men alive. Thank you for always being you.
There were certain things that Magnus feared. The loss of a loved one—his mind flashed to quick strides, dark hair and hazel eyes—, the loss of a friend—his breath caught at the image of dark eyes, dark hair streaked with grey, twin horns, and skin grown cold—, and the loss of his children—the downworlders he’d taken underneath his wings. His fingers dug into the oak coffee table, scouring the wood as his mind supplied him with images of everyone of them that he’d lost. Drawing in breath was hard, like he was suffocating, a direct contradiction to the cool breeze wafting into the outdoor patio of the mundane bar he’d decided to visit. Sometimes, he just needed that time to himself, amongst the mundanes that entertained him with how they scurried about in their daily lives, unaware of the world that existed in the shadows.
He did just that at the moment, watching them go about their lives when suddenly, everything… froze. From the waiter who had been heading to his table, to the lovers celebrating their recent engagement. Even the late night dog walker and her dog were frozen in place, her with a hand halfway up her hair, and the dog with his tongue half pulled into his mouth. As he took in the the sight, everyone frozen as far as he could he could see, and as he heard those footsteps, calm and unhurried, that oozing mass of power that would cower a lesser man, have them scurrying away or bending their heads in submission, Magnus came face to face with his biggest fear.
“Drinking alone,” a voice he’d heard only once in his life and had hoped he would never hear again wafted out to him, moments before the owner of the voice slid into the seat across from him. White suit—expensive as expected, stretched over a tall lanky form. “Now that doesn’t suit you Magnus,” he drawled as he casually shrugged off the jacket, undid the diamond studded cufflinks so he could roll up his sleeves and show off his forearms. Long lean fingers reached up to run through hair that was kept in place by the crown of barbed wire on his head. He waved his hands and men—shapeshifting demons, Magnus was sure—who’d accompanied him all gave them a wide berth.
“And how would you know what suits or doesn’t suit me,” Magnus tossed back as he reached for his glass of bourbon. “You don’t know me.”
The man grinned, teeth sharp in the moonlight. “Now, now Magnus. Why would you say that? Is that how you speak to your father?”
Magnus raised a brow and took a sip of his bourbon, eyes hard as he stared back at Asmodeus.
When I think about the horror she must have witnessed when Marcel killed those men, it just… No… She didn’t see anything, actually. Marcel swept her away before she could even understand what was going on. He told her to close her eyes and sing.
@ sh writers, i’m gonna need a scene where magnus’ cat eyes come out by accident and magnus tries to hide them but alec gently grabs his face, looks him straight in those beautiful eyes and tells him that he doesn’t need to hide because he loves every single part of him.
concept: magnus and alec waking up beside each other at magnus’ loft, sun streaming through the windows. alec blinking his eyes open against the pull of sleep with a small smile on his face as he realizes where he is. the camera zooms out and there’s magnus, arm wrapped around alec’s middle, face bare of makeup and hair down. magnus presses a kiss to the curve of alec’s jaw and whispers, “good morning, my love.”
and all this happens with i get to love you by ruelle playing in the background
