the shadow warriors

All the Chantry’s candles couldn’t compete with the spark that’s in your eyes

“What are you thinking about, Alistair?”

“….uuuummm… Lamp posts, definitely.”


With Trump’s decision today about trans people being forbidden to serve in the military…

Stories like Shadowhunters, and their books, that embrace characters from the LGBTQ community become that much more important.

On the show, we have a gay-bisexual with a person of color relationship (Malec), asexual representation with Raphael, lesbian rep with Aline and Ollie.

In the books, we have all that’s listed above, along with trans Diana Wrayburn (from Lord of Shadows)–a badass warrior extraordinaire, several bisexual characters (Mark, Helen, maybe Kieran?), and so much more.

Continue to support and promote these stories, y'all. We are lucky to have them. We are lucky to discuss and analyze them. We are lucky to swoon and cry over them. Fight against ignorance and bigotry with these beautiful characters and their stories.
