step up

Malec Watching Step Up 2
  • Magnus: "So what do you want to watch my darling?"
  • Alec: "What about that sequal to that step up movie."
  • Magnus: *twitching hand nervously.* "Okay, anything for you Alexander."
  • Alec later: "Whose this dancing guy, he looks an awful lot like you Magnus."
  • Alec: "No that's definitely you! Just without makeup!"
  • Magnus: "What are you talking about? I-it looks n-nothing like me!"
  • Alec: *gives the look.*
  • Magnus: "Okay so maybe I did a few movies in my lifetime, sometimes things get dull is all."
  • Alec: "WHO CARES ABOUT THAT YOU CAN DANCE SHOW ME!!"

Alec is so dead. We all are.

I have no words. I’m just shook. The cat eyes are wonderful and I can’t wait to see them shine in the show. This whole look is just so fucking good. Every part of it. At first I was sceptical about this goatee but damn, it does things to me now. And photo was unlocked in less than 20 minutes???

The fact, that I’d die for Magnus Bane is one thing, but the fact, that I’d die for Harry Shum Jr. as well is another one. I bet he wasn’t expecting it to be unlocked so fast and it just shows how much we love and appreciate something/someone he pours in his whole heart and soul. Harry is incredible as Magnus. Harry is Magnus. I want to give him every single damn award for his acting. Step Up, Glee, Mom’s Night Out, Crouching Tiger, White Frog, Single by 30… - all of this never gave him as amazing chance to show off as Shadowhunters. I’m close to tears just thinking about it. He should be more appreciated. If there’re people, who somehow judge his acting skills but never saw him as Magnus, I want them to hear me clearly: Harry Shum Jr. is an amazing, taletned actor who truly becomes his character while shooting. There’s no Harry left, when he plays Magnus. Not his voice, not his body language, not even his looks. Just pure Magnus Bane. That’s what good acting means. He deserves all the love; it’s sad that he gets hate too.

But anyways. I love it. I love Magnus. I love Harry. I’m dead and tomorrow I’m gonna see Alec’s poster from afterlife and then come back again on 2nd January.
