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.
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.
Those pissed off that they didn’t show Malec having sex (we don’t even know if they went through with it) would you calm down. It’s all up to the actors, what they are comfortable with, Matt and Harry might have good chemistry, they might not be comfortable yet. So stop being childish, saying the show treats Malec badly, the show treats Malec way better than they treat the other ships. And for those who are giving up on the show, were you a true fan? Or just wanted to see two guys make out? Because honestly idk how you would view that but I view that as fetishising a ship.
ok we gotta make victor and raj unlikable, make sure the fans can't stand th-
what was that? you want me to stan them? cool yes good, one stan coming right up i love them and would die for them!! they're doing their best, just doing their jobs, doing what the clave is telling them to do. i love the m. so mcuh! amazing brilliant iconic neverbeendonebefore im s
shadowhunters fluff/sitcom/everyone is happy universe episode 1: pet shop
jace wants to get a pet to therapeutically heal from the falcon story and the gang goes along for moral support
once confronted with all the pups and kits and adorable faces the gang is suddenly much more invested and investigate ‘for jace’
luke is kind of bummed at first bc he used to love animals but now that hes a werewolf animals are always scared of him. but he doesnt want to ruin everyone elses fun so he tries to stay out of trouble and drifts to the back where he finds a wall of reptiles. one thin green one seems to be looking right at him. ‘just like harry potter’ luke thinks, smiling to himself. it is just like harry potter, luke. he tentatively reaches into its cage and picks it up. it wriggles around in his hands contentedly and wraps itself around his wrist. its smooth cold skin is refreshing since luke usually runs pretty hot since the change. he turns around to show someone his new friend (hopefully simon since hes always been terrified of snakes) and sees magnus holding a 30 pound yellow python around his shoulders. ‘just like britney’ whispers luke. ‘JUST LIKE BRITNEY!’ cheers magnus.
izzy and alec, meanwhile, gravitate towards the kitties and puppies respectively. they playfully banter over the differences between cat and dog people, quickly becoming less casual and more competitive. they give each other a look. cut to 10 minutes later theyre giving their troops battle speeches before they send them down the racetracks and obstacle courses they made out of treat boxes, jimmy jabs style
clary and simon go with jace to look at the hamsters and mice and bunnies. jace, with at least 2 tiny soft little furballs in each hand and a tear in his eye: ‘theyre okay i guess.’ simon and clary politely ignore his sniffling, even when he uses a guinea pig’s fur to dry his tears. clary and simon are good friends. theyre all amusing themselves picking out animals that remind them of the rest of the gang when simon says ‘guys. uh.’ by some wacky twist of circumstance simon has managed to release every single rodent in the store. ‘we should tell someone’ simon says intelligently, eyes wide with worry. ‘NO WE SHOULDNT WE CAN HANDLE IT’ jace and clary whisper frantically, eyes wild with determination. as it turns out, they can not handle it. they can not handle it at all.
so malec, an interracial healthy and beautiful relationship has gotten an unexplained scene yet climon, an incestious het ship got a half naked make out scene after confirming their feelings for each other in one episode lmao
Ohhhhhhh Todd hashtagged ‘defiance’ and Kat and Alberto said ‘scapegoat’ where Raj is concerned. This is super interesting, it got me thinking. Perhaps the defiance is a good thing, and he sees all the bullshit going on with the clave. Maybe he wants to side with those who want change but he takes the brunt of the blame because he’s been covering for them whenever they do something the Clave wouldn’t approve of. Oh this would be such an awesome story line for Raj.
