About Magnus and his friendly relationships (Ragnor, Catarina, Tessa, Will, Raphael, Woolsey)

When I wrote the first meta “About Magnus and Camille’s relationship” I didn’t think someone would ever read it. Yet a lot of people did and they even put nice comments on their tags. THANK you. It means A LOT.

So, encouraged by the lovely response, I wrote this second chapter. This is about Magnus’s friends, how he built and nurtured his relationship with Ragnor Fell, Catarina Loss, Theresa “Tessa” Gray, William “Will” Herondale, Raphael Santiago and Woolsey Scott.

Magnus lost many people during his long life as a warlock. The majority of the characters in the book may think that Magnus is a happy and fun person, who tries to live his immortal life at full. However, that is only a mask, an appearance: the parties, the fancy clothes, the jokes are a way to hide what is really inside him, something that only few characters in the books and the show actually know.

Magnus’s vulnerability will be another, separated meta though. This one is about his social life. Magnus himself thinks he’s a loner: he doesn’t have a family, he doesn’t have many friends and his trust is carefully given. Very few people actually knows that about him: being the High Warlock of Brooklyn is a busy job and his private life is a mystery. Not many people care enough to know that.

Nonetheless, he IS a loner: throughout all his years his social life involved his lovers and some friends. His lovers, however, were kind of separated from his warlock and private life. Only later, Alec and all the main characters of the “Mortal Instruments” two trilogies become a fixed part of his existence. Before that, he only had two people who were ALWAYS there for him: Ragnor and Catarina. Later, he met Tessa (who still remains his friend) and Will. Furthermore, during the 1950s Raphael comes into his life; however their relationship is unusual, and very different from the one he established with Ragnor and Catarina. One could argue that Woolsey Scott can be considered as his friend, but that relationship seems more fleeting and created by the circumstance of “The Infernal Devices”.

1. Ragnor and Catarina

Both Ragnor and Catarina are warlocks, like Magnus. Their warlock marks are green skin, an extra finger and horns for Ragnor, and blue skin and white hair for Catarina. Their age is not revealed: Ragnor mentions his “five hundred years” during the first story in the “Bane Chronicles” (“What Really Happened in Peru”) in 1797.
We don’t know much about how Magnus, Ragnor and Catarina met in the first place. We only know, thanks to the “Bane Chronicles”, that Magnus meets Catarina in Spain and saves her from being burned as a witch. In general, Ragnor and Catarina have been Magnus’s friends for a very long time. When he talks about both of them, the readers assume they are very familiar with each other, since they share several anecdotes and recognize each other’s specific and particular behaviours. How, one could wonder, did they become acquainted?

First, they are all three warlocks. Their shared condition of immortality is one common trait that brings them together and creats this bond. They understand each other: their warlock problems (immortality, the importance of emotions, their different experience of family) are the same.
Ragnor and Catarina are the only two fixed people in Magnus’s life: no matter what happens, they are always there for him. It is rare, however, that he goes to them for frivolous requests of aid. Magnus calls them:

anonymous asked:

idk why people are so worried about clarice coming into the show and 'replacing' will. or wanting will to take clarice's role in the series. they're both completely different characters and have different functions in the story. i think some people need to take their hannigram goggles off for a second and accept that, yes, hannibal ends up with clarice and not will. romantic hannigram was never going to explicitly happen in the show - clarice can't threaten something that never existed...

Your bias is showing. You showed me yours…would you like to see mine?

Warning: this ask elicited something of a rant. The gloves came off partway through. I put them back on by the end, so if you’re going to read this, please read the whole thing.

(Sorry to disappoint, mtzgtz, but I didn’t really stay the voice of reason on this one. I misplaced my person suit and found my murder onesie instead.)

How many people have Anti-Fan S-Shippers bullied?

There are many so it makes for a long list. The forms of bullying have included harassment, name calling, threats of violence, stalking, doxxing, and blackmail. The people who have been bullied range from fellow Outlander fans to innocent bystanders, to cast and crew members of the show.

Seeing in writing the number of people who have been bullied by s-shippers is stomach turning, so proceed with caution.  Note this list is not meant to be all inclusive or chronological, and comes from memory with the assistance of a friend who provided details of some of the most egregious acts of bullying.

Victim 1: Former S-shipper and now former friend of Jess. This victim is also a journalist.  What was her crime in the eyes of s-shippers? The  journalist went to Tony’s bar and discovered he was Cait’s SO, and published her findings. S-Shippers went after her maliciously for weeks, and the bullying didn’t stop until she deleted the post.  

Victim 2: Tony, Cait’s SO.   Although Tony has zero SM presence s-shippers put him in the spotlight, and began a campaign to dehumanize him. S-shippers were so rabid with the name calling, the comments, and accusations that Cait blocked a major s-shipper on Twitter. Even with a Cait block, s-shippers to this day vilify Tony every chance they get. 

Victim 3: The mother of a friend of Sam’s. Yes, that’s correct, the mother of Sam’s friend. The mother posted a comment on a SM post which implied that her daughter and Sam previously had a short lived personal relationship. In true anti-fan s-shipper form they pounced and accused this woman of pimping out her daughter to Hollywood in order to advance her daughters career. God forbid if the woman tried to defend herself or her daughter, s-shippers went low that day, incredibly low. 

Victim 4:  The daughter of Victim 3.  Cody was assumed by many to have dated Sam in late 2014. S-shippers repeatedly referred to her as a whore on her SM accounts for months  The bulling stopped once s-shippers were satisfied that there was no longer a relationship of any kind between Cody and Sam.

We all know that Purv took part in harassing Cody, however Purv did something that no s-shipper has ever done, she publicly apologized to Cody, and admitted that she was wrong with her behavior. I would like to see any s-shipper apologize to just one of her victims. Are any of you woman enough to do that?  Any of you? 

Victim 5:  On the heals of Cody there’s Abbie, a former girlfriend of Sam’s.  S-shippers came out swinging at Abbie early on. She was stalked, doxxed, and threatened for months. Her employer, friends, and family were contacted by a s-shipper in an attempt to terrorize her.

I don’t think it’s wise for Abbie to frequent 26 Grains now that several s-shippers also frequent this establishment under the guise of loving porridge. These s-shippers are not going to 26-G for the porridge, they are going there to be on the lookout for Abbie to do god knows what. I for one am glad that Abbie is physically fit.  She may look small but I bet she packs one hell off a punch, and would knock a s-shipper on her ass if the need arose. 

Victim 6: MM  I pity any woman who has a friendship with Sam. The vile and the hate has become increasingly worse with each woman that Sam has a friendship with. MM was harassed on her IG account for months.  In one comment s-shippers imply that she is a whore, and in the next they assert she’s bearding for him. The bullying of MM stopped only when Sam asked for it to stop. Why was a request even necessary? 

Victim 7:  Cast and Crew of Outlander. Sam, Nell, Terry, and Sam and Cait’s set drivers to name a few.  All have done something to rock the ship in s-shippers eyes.

S-shippers bullied Sam with a massive letter writing campaign to Starz and to his agent demanding public apologies from both TPTB and Sam.  What was Sam’s crime?  He liked a FB post in support of anti-bullying, and that hurt someone’s feelings. Yes, that’s correct Sam liked a SM post in favor of MM not being bullied, and the s-shippers took offense and went nuclear. Additionally Sam befriended William Shatner, and s-shippers didn’t like this, and had the gall to demand that he stop associating with WS.

S-shippers have gone so far deep into the upside down with their obsession with Sam that not only do they try to control who he dates, but they also try to control who he is permitted to be friends with. Their bullying has no limits. 

S-shippers have taken to Twitter on numerous occasions to bully. They’ve demanded that Sam and Cait’s drivers be fired. They have called Terry a drunk, and suggested that Ron physically assault her by sewing her lips shut. Poor Nell, they pulled the thirsty whore card on her with a trap-tweet. What could Nell have possibly done to deserve the bully treatment from s-shippers?  She dared to answer a tweet s-shippers tagged her in regarding Sam’s whereabouts. Her response blew a ginormous hole in the ship so they had to silence her, and yet again dehumanize someone who not only rocked the ship, but sunk it.   

Victim 8: Innocent bystanders who unknowingly get into the cross-hairs of s-shippers.  There are many and they include journalists, Lynnette Rice of EW, and Bernadette Giacomazzo of the Inquisitr. Both were bullied and vilified for interviews/articles they wrote. BG was threatened and s-shippers contacted her editor in an attempt to have her fired.

William Shatner’s assistant, Lisa Marie, was threatened with physical harm when she came to s-shippers attention though their SM data mining activity. They incorrectly believed that she may have been Sam’s new girlfriend, and they went after her. She took a lot of crap, and when threatened, WS stepped in to defend her, and s-shippers pounced on him. WS didn’t back down, and with his massive number of Twitter followers it finally came to light the extent of s-shippers bullying.

Jess messed with the wrong man when she tried to bully WS into silence with her “Shut-Up” tweet. Thank you, Jess. It is becasue of you millions of people outside of the fandom know what s-shippers are. You’re bullies, and millions know you are the biggest bully in the fandom. 

Anne Gavin from the Outlander cast blog.  AG wrote a sympathetic post on shipping but stated that she did not believe that Sam and Cait were a couple. S-shippers came at her breathing fire. The comments, harassment etc she endured was enough to have made the most stoic of personalities cry.  Anne may have cried, any of the victims may have cried, we will never know. 

Victim 9: NST’s who have been specifically targeted by s-shippers. Several NST’s have been bullied with doxxing, threats, and blackmail. If you’ve been in the fandom for at least a year you know who has been victimized so there is no need to note who they are. 

Victim 10: The Fandom. Every time s-shippers have bullied one of the above victims, and those not noted in this post they have bullied the entire fandom. Some fans have left because of the bullying, some are still around but are silent, and some will only participate though Tumblr’s anon function out of fear of being bullied by s-shippers.

I have wondered why s-shippers bully and have come to the conclusion that they do it becasue they find it entertaining and they enjoy the drama created from their behavior. These are the same people who claim love and light while at the same time actively engage in behavior to harm others. Simply put, s-shippers bully for sport. That’s not what decent people do, that’s not what fans do.

The Outlander fandom is better than what s-shippers have shown it to be. The reality is the fandom is full of decent and intelligent women who know the difference between Sam and Cait, and Jamie and Claire. Two of the named are real people with real lives outside of Outlander, and two are characters created by Diana Gabaldon a quarter of a century ago. If you don’t know the difference between the real life people and Diana’s creation, you’re part of the problem.
