Where the Lightwoods take note of Alec’s sexuality earlier, after he had his parabatai bond with Jace but still a teenager, and decide to hire a warlock (not Magnus because I’d rather Alec be an actual adult when they meet for shipping purposes) to ~*magic*~ the gay away.
The warlock, not being a complete bastard, talks to Alec in private (because he needs specifics if the spell is to work properly and boys rarely tell the truth if they think their parents can hear, he tells the Lightwoods) and lays it out for him. There is no spell, he can wave his hands and send pretty lights and sparkles out, and Alec can go back to living in the closet to make his family proud. Or he can fool his parents for as long as he needs to to get out, and the warlock will find him a safe place to stay where people won’t try to ‘fix’ him.
Alec takes option 2 and slowly makes a name for himself with downworlders as an independent shadowhunter that truly cares (I’m thinking a Batman or Archangel-like figure that the Clave is aware of, but doesn’t really expend resources on unmasking because he helps more that he hurts them).
By the time season 1 starts he’s been dating Magnus for a year or so, has friends and connection throughout all the downworld, and has been tracking all the Valentine rumors (and relaying them to Jace and Izzy, cause let’s be honest, they would never have taken any side but Alecs).
not gonna lie, what convinced me to follow this blog was the drawing of teru and ritsu kissing. the smug fucking look on teru's face is so good. i love when people remember hes an egotistical asshole lmfao i love him
#okay so I was just rewatching some scenes when I noticed this. this girl was just casually talking to Odessa when Tilda called Odessa’s name. and she looks SO DONE. she’s like “OK THEN”. and in the second gif you can see her thinking “ok lesbian”
Is funny how history repeats itself, we are in the exact same position we were during Generation 5.
We were expecting a new game (Since CoroCoro hinted some big news for their next issue, this time is a Pokémon Direct) and the fandom was divided. Some wanted the Hoenn remakes because we got a lot of reference to Hoenn in Black and White plus some Hoenn focus merchandise (This is when #Hoennconfirmed was born kids). Others wanted a third version that was rumor and even trademark back then “Pokémon Gray”, Just like Pokémon Stars today.
Not to mention that some wanted the new games to be in the newest console that was the Nintendo 3ds and not in the Nintendo DS. Which is also a topic of discussion in the fandom with some want the new games to be on the Nintendo 3DS while others want them in the Nintendo Switch.
My favorite thing is when an idol’s face shows up on the screen and the fans begin screeching, but the idol doesn’t know why they’re screaming all of a sudden, but then they go to look at the big screen and see their face and find out they’re the reason for the cheers and then they get all shy and don’t know what to do and-
omg just idols being loved and them being surprised/baffled at the amout of love shown towards them
so I’m kind of a sucker for Redemption Equals Death because it’s sad and I’m a sucker for sad. but I also…idk, sometimes I wish it weren’t such an overwhelming trend, not only because All My Faves Wind Up Dead but also because…I want to see more villains actually going through the hard, messy work of redemption, that it can’t just be done and over with, that it’s not as simple as One Good Heroic Act and everything is better.
I want the awkward and painful and difficult aftermath.
like, what I really want is the villain seeking redemption who is genre savvy enough to go for a redemptive death, figuring that’s their best way out - and who survives, and has to live up to what they meant to be their last act.
rather than death as the end of a redemptive arc, near-death as the beginning of one.
Mourning bride: “I have lost all” (and I’m just a tad bit perturbed that the flower is really reminiscent of Shiro’s color scheme)
