I don’t know much about the world, but it seems like if you take #gorgeous and add it to #help, you end up with #thomas lightwood.

Already lost two follows (sorry-not sorry) after my last reblog, so I decided to reblog again - but turning my tags into comments instead - because, fuck it.
If you want to represent a POC in a heavily white society, please put a little more effort in it. Maybe research and actually understand their feelings, struggles and sensitivities. Characters like Kamala, Cordelia, Alastair (and others), have all these feelings, struggles and sensitivities, but these are mostly mentioned in relation to white characters - which is very annoying.
This opinion is coming from a POC living in a heavily white society, herself (ME!)
The way all the white characters have their backgrounds explained in detail with short stories highlighting their lives and how it connects to said white character, but all the pocs are given vauge descriptions and often are "disconnected" from their families as poor attempt to avoid writing their cultural backgrounds and families, despite two of these pocs being main characters

Cordelia Carstairs Sexualization in the books
Okay soooo as we know Cordelia was highly sexualized in the book. Remember it’s a YA book. For hundreds of years WOC have been more overly sexualized then white women. It’s honestly fetish-like. Especially to the eyes of men. Like wasn’t there a part where she basically kind of stated that she knows James is just using her for her body. Or is my mind making up things? Anyway it’s disturbing that she though that!!!!! Like think about it compare to Tess, Clary, and Emma, Cordelia is very sexualized. Tessa was never sexualized. Clary and Emma were barely ever sexualized in their books. All those mains are white. Also, where is ALL the same amount of sexualized artworks of Tessa, Clary, and Emma. They definitely don’t have as many as Cordelia. Also let’s not forget James and Cordelia are MINORS! MINORS!!!!! Let’s not forget the hell ruelle performance where she is wearing a not so corseted, draped-like, fitted dress and then did a dance that was meant to be only done by married women because it’s known to be inappropriate! We have a brown main character who is canon to be curvy and she is doing an scandalous performance in a scandalous club. What does that say about how WOC are perceived in these books?

The Carstairs siblings' flower cards redraw! Unfriendly reminder to miss Clare that she wrote brown-skinned characters and shouldn't be sharing white-washed art of them 💖💖

If and when the magical tether binding Ty to ghost Livvy, breaks, Thule Livvy might step in to fill the void. This is going to be heartbreaking and reassuring at the same time.

"She knew her father had broken his son's heart a dozen different ways, and Alastair was doing the best he could with the pieces. But it didn't help for Alastair to behave like this, to retreat behind a cold facade as cutting as glass."

CC asked, “what would Magnus Bane do?”
I’d say, he’d be standing at the head of and holding a banner to protest for more Thomastair content.
