“Keep your arms
up, Thea,” Harry barked at me, my skin crawling at the intensity. “Eyes
forward, stop watching your feet. You’re not going to have time to pay
attention to your feet if someone is trying to attack you.”
“I’m trying,” I
gasped out, my muscles already sore from the warm up we’d started earlier that
morning. “Harry, I’m trying.”
“You’re not trying
hard enough, Thea!” My chest heaved, sweat dripping from every pore. He was in
a mood today, that was clear, but what had set him off. Was it something I’d
done? My throat grew thick as I leaned against the ropes, my legs like jelly. “Get
“Harry, give her a
break,” Jared said from behind me, already taking his gloves off. Harry’s jaw
was tense as I looked at him, his arms crossed over his chest.
“Do you think you’re
going to have a break when you’re trying to defend yourself?” He said, voice
low and harsh. “The world is going to give you a break Thea and you’re selfish
for thinking it will. You have more than just yourself and you’re just giving
“Don’t bring him
into this, Harry,” I snapped. “I don’t know who shoved the stick up your ass
today, but I’m not going to sit here and let you take it out on me.”
I ducked out of
the ring, jumping down onto the hard floor of the gym with harsh eyes and anger
bubbling in my chest. I lifted my gloves up to my mouth, stripping the straps
off before I took my gloves off, shoving them to Harry’s chest. I didn’t need
to say anything, his face already softening. I didn’t care. He’d pressed too
many buttons today and I wasn’t going to sit around and be his emotional
punching bag. I’d left home for this reason exactly and I was done. I wouldn’t
let anyone else treat me this way again, especially not the man that I liked,
the man that saved me.
did u hear about the malec spoilers ppl saying there is a fight?? what do u think
I DID the info is a little all over the place and i got a glimpse of what ppl were talking about. TBH i am pretty intrigued because if it’s taking place how I think and if the context that was provided for the line is true, then I can really see Magnus telling Alec to get out over the incident with the Shadowhunters being killed and the Downworlders being so angry because Alec doesn’t get it why this is happening – this oppressive conflict that’s been going on for centuries.
This is what I really, really hope is going to be addressed in 2B and while I don’t…quite trust that they’ll do it or do it well, based on this tidbit it looks promising? But it’s impossible to tell from such little information. Anyway, my ideal scenario is for them to show that while Alec and Magnus are in fact in a very loving relationship, there’s still a world of racial politics that divides them and a lot that Alec doesn’t get (understandable, considering the society he was raised in, but equally understandable for Magnus to get upset about it and/or call Alec out on it).
As someone in an interracial relationship, we really do navigate these conversations and situations as part of it. So I think it would be really important to see it played out thoughtfully on screen and to show that if you’re in a loving relationship with someone – esp someone who holds privilege over you – you have every right to call them out on their privilege and be heard. And if your partner is respectful and caring and genuinely loves you, they’ll listen and learn better.
