From here on out I will never slander your name. The Walking Dead is the best show on television and I appreciate its existence. I love you and your fruit basket should be on the way have a blessed day
I’ve been meaning to speak up about the #malecdeservesbetter tag that has been going around on twitter for the past couple of days, As a fan of both, the books, and the show, I finally decided to out my opinion regarding the many opinions being stated on most social media websites, including Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram. I’m going to be blunt about most of it, and I’m going to try my hardest not to offend anyone with my thoughts, after all, it’s only called freedom of expression when you’re being respectful.
Throughout season 1, I have grown quite fond of the couple, from the first “who are you” to the “Alexander, I may be the high warlock of Brooklyn, but even I can’t see the future”, the evolution of their feelings was spectacular, and all in all, I fell in love with how mature the whole thing was.
Alec coming out, the way he came out, was certainly much different than the books, In the books Alec does gather up the courage to ask Magnus out, however, they decide to keep their relationship discreet, but Alec does eventually come out to the entire institute/clave, encouraging many shadowhunters to follow his example.
Now, in the show, Alec decides to marry Lydia Branwell - an envoy sent from the clave - in order to maintain his family’s honour, and to regain the Lightwoods’ position as leaders of the institute.
Magnus tried several times to persuade the younger man into doing what he desires instead of acting against his feelings and marrying someone he does not have feelings for.
Alec argued every time, eventually telling the warlock to “back off”.
Now, on the day of Alec and Lydia’s wedding, Magnus is seen in his loft, aimlessly wandering until the ghost of his dearest friend “Ragnor Fell” materialises in front of him and tells him not to let Alexander go.
Midst-ceremony, Magnus walks into Alec’s wedding, and it’s soon to be known that Isabelle Lightwood, Alec’s sister , had invited him, also not wanting her older brother to sacrifice his happiness in order to restore the Lightwood name. Alec decides to go against his parent’s will, and the laws of the clave, and to follow his heart for once. He gets down there, and he grabs Magnus by his perfect (probably a little too expensive) collar, and smooches him right on the spot, leaving his parents, and the members of the clave, in utter shock. Nonetheless, it is evident how proud his siblings are, and how happy Simon (who invited him?), Lydia (who only wanted his happiness), and Clary (regardless their mutual dislike towards one another) are.
Now, as for season 2, Jace is gone, Alec is frustrated with his parabatai’s absence, and he takes it out on any person standing in his way, including Magnus, who was only trying to calm his darling. Alec is later on shown apologising to Magnus for lashing out on him and he corrects his “after everything I’ve done for you” to a more comprehensible, realistic phrase like “I did it for me”,
Magnus is happy with Alec’s sincere apology and straightens his jacket (am I the only one who died?)
Episode one, two, three, four, five, and six were all absolutely beautiful. Malec go on their first date, which was quite awkward until Alec (once again) takes Mags by surprise and kisses him (did you see that scene though?), saying that relationships take effort. And then they’re official. On to episode 7. As a man who’s very new to relationships, Alec thinks that taking it to the next level after only 2 dates would be the right decision. Isabelle knows best, right? Out of instinct, Alec goes to his sister for help, and she proudly asks him if he was “talking about having sex”, which he only replies to by staring her dead in the face with that adorkable deadpan expression. She tells him to go for it, and it’s obvious how much they care for one another, Alec takes her advice. And that’s where my disappointment began; Someone’s at Magnus’ door, Magnus opens the door, Alec steps in, slipping his jacket off, obviously warming up to get to work (did he activate his stamina rune before knocking, though?) He asks Magnus whether Jace was home (considering that annoying lil parabatai has been cockblocking them… repeatedly), Magnus doesn’t have the chance to reply, only getting a “he lefts hours ago, are you okay-” out before Alec crashes into him and kisses him full on the mouth. Point #1: all I saw was desperation in that scene. Magnus pulls back with a laugh, surprised as usual, but not complaining, and he asks Alec why the suddenness. Alec explains that he wants to take things to the next level. Magnus is a little taken aback, and reluctant, He pulls back, and tells Alec about his fear of losing him if they rush into the sex step. Alec steps closer, and asks him why he would think he’d lose him Point #2: honestly, they should’ve stopped there. Malec is a healthy unforced relationship. Magnus tells Alec that he’s not the only one who feels vulnerable, Alec gives him a reassuring smile and steps closer “You’ve nothing to worry about” his hands are back on Magnus’ collar and he’s walking him towards the bedroom “I want this” Point #3: Alec wants this. But Magnus, no matter how experienced he is in bed (400 years is quite a lot), should have a say in such a huge step, no matter how powerful and flirtatious he is. The malec scenes ended there, and us fans had to wait another week, hoping for something to happen, a domestic scene, a kiss, a hug, or even a flashback of the night they had spent together. And considering the many sexual scenes/sexual indications we’ve seen throughout both seasons, including Jace and a seelie in bed for nearly 3 minutes, Maureen and Simon in bed the morning after, Meliorn and Izzy in a very intimate scene, and Camille and Simon in their little vampire session back when Simon was human, we expected to have at least a glimpse of a healthy, canon relationship that has been progressing for nearly a year,
We didn’t necessarily expect a full on sex scene, but an after-sex-scene, a hug, a kiss, a smile, just any closeness between Magnus and Alec would’ve been much appreciated.
I wouldn’t have paid much mind to the fact they didn’t show us any intimacy after they had their first time if they hadn’t shown us the climon scene (in the 2x09 sneak peak), and if they haven’t shown us past sexual encounters between main characters and others who aren’t involved in any type of relationship. But this. Malec, an official, strong relationship between two complex characters being sidekicked? Im extremely disappointed in Freeform, and I’m hoping they pay more attention to all ships, and fix their mistake in 2B (although I’m not gonna bring my hopes up, nothing can make up for what they have done, but okay)
Does anyone else find a lot of joy in the small acts of independence? Like grocery shopping and cooking dinner while catching up on a TV show? In the apartment that YOU pay for all by yourself? Because you have a job, or better yet, a CAREER that you love? And you get to clean your sheets and light candles and do your laundry and fold your clothes while you listen to your favorite music? And daydream of all the things you have yet to do in your life?
Because these last six months have been the first time in my life that I’ve been completely independent, financially and without a significant other, and it is the best fucking feeling in the world.
