what she means:even though clary fray is the main character, she's the most under appreciated and least talked about. clary is one of the strongest characters on the show. her mother got kidnapped, she found out her whole life was a lie, she found out her father is the most dangerous rogue shadowhunter, her best friend got kidnapped, she thought she couldn't trust luke, dot was killed, and everyone in the shadow world is hunting her for the mortal cup. despite all of this shit people still call her "whiny" and "weak" for being upset about all that's happened to her. that's completely unrealistic. her whole life came crashing down and she's supposed to be automatically okay with that? she can't show emotion and be determined to save her mother? she shows emotion while also being a smol badass who doesn't take anybody's shit. she doesn't let alec or jace or maryse or anyone intimidate her. she'll fight anyone and probably win. i love clary fray for a lot of reasons, but mainly because she's a strong woman who's also not afraid to show emotion. she deserves so much more love from this fandom.
anyone else think it’s really dumb when people say ‘‘but you don’t have a reason to be sad’‘ like? yeah that’s what makes it so bad? there’s no reason yet here i am? and if there’s no reason there’s nothing you can do to make yourself feel better, like if you don’t know the source of the problem you can’t possibly find a solution. feeling sad for a reason is one thing because you know what needs to be done but feeling sad for no reason is literal hell because the problem is nothing and everything at the same time and it’s really fucking confusing and i for one am tired of it
