I truly want Matthew and Alastair to bond over their shitty ex's(ie charlie and the chocolate factory and beef wellington)
Alastair should be allowed to be petty and embarrass Matthew like Matthew did to him, but Alastair knows that embarrassing Matthew is not the way to make amends. They should talk things out, like the adults they are. Matthew should approach him first, apologize, then they can discuss how to be civil around each other for Cordelia and Thomas' sake
I want Matthew to open up to Alastair about Kellington harassing him because he knows Alastair is probably the person who understands that. Alastair might not like or forgive Matthew, but he would probably think it's nice to finally talk to someone about everything without judgment
I just want them to communicate their feelings like adults, but they are a part of the tlh cast so that probably won't happen :/
This is a new take for them I think???
I haven't seen anyone talk about them bonding over their exes????
I am quite annoyed that I don't anything about that relationship???
Anyway I don't have much to add but I want to put this out here and see the Tumblr fam's thoughts 👀

Alastair called Matthew "Mother Hen Fairchild",, the joy of finding things on the shadowhunters wiki page-
The literal worst insult I think I have EVER heard??? 😂 no seriously what!? Alastair HAD to be trying to not say something too mean right? Theres no way he thought that was insulting? Although I guess Matthew was insulted wasn't he?
Also have you guys noticed all the series have a mother hen Fairchild?
TID had Charlotte
TLH has Matthew
TMI had Clary
TDA had Clary too
I am not saying that they always do a GOOD job! Put they are the mother hens of the groups??

I have thoughts on the last hours and a concept called, "co-signing the narrative." For those of you who don't know, cosigning the narrative is essentially when the perspective of a particular character or group of characters is validated as the correct perspective by the writer or writers. This is done through the writing but also usually through the way scenes are edited and cut, the music cues, and whose pov we get the most.
But most importantly, who gets to speak. This is importent because the perspective that the author co-signs is often the one that the audience/readers are encouraged to side with. A good example of this is basically every movie made about the holocaust ever.
Co-signing the narrative isn't a bad thing on it's own. The problem is when you either accidently or on purpose, end up cosigning a problematic narrative based on the way you construct the scene or the story, and again who you let speak.
Cassandra Clare is co-signing some pretty shitty narratives in the last hours in my opinion. Due to the way things are framed, again writing, povs and who gets to speak, she has co-signed Matthew's perspective about Alastair many times. Along with the ideas that Christopher seems to hold about himself through the behavior of his friends. Ie: James and Matthew don't listen to him talk about the things he is passionate about, so he gives that he isn't worth listening to and he stops himself when rambling to Grace. Showing this kind of casual ableism isn't wrong as long as you don't co-sign the damn narrative that the merry thieves are in the right. And yeah I know it's not over and theres still one more book and she can fix all of this still, but idk if I have hope for that.
And there are actually multiple examples of CC doing this that I can think of, these are just some of them. Like the Kit and Ty thing obviously and the whole conflict between shadowhunters and downworlders.
If CC wants these to be a nuanced discussions where no one is clearly right or wrong then she needs to stop co-signing the narrative.

Look guys, Malec survived the Camille/immortality situation and Wessa survived Will being a complete ass and they’re both thriving now. And those two couples were nowhere as open and communicative at the time as thomastair has been, so I’m not to concerned about them.

Reblog and ask if you want to use
These things take time so I'd appreciate if you just asked before you wanted to use it and gave proper credits.
I took all the photos from pinterest so the credits go to the original owner(s). The edit, however, is all mine.

I ended up going down a bit of a rabbit hole on the TLH wikia pages and I found this 7 year old concept art from Cassie’s Tumblr:
I know stories change a lot in 7 years but its interesting that initially Alastair was the one who got Cortana. Based off of this, I don’t think Cordelia ends up getting Cortana back at the end of CoT and instead Alastair keeps it and eventually passes it on to Emma.
Also, apparently at some point Will wanted Lucie to marry Alastair and not Jesse. You can find the concept art for all the characters here.

Just realized we only have one piece piece of official art with dark-haired Alastair, and in that too, he's in the background. :(

Happy pride month, TLH fandom!
This is my first Pride on Tumblr and I had to do something to celebrate :3 Transparent versions are under the cut.
Just a few notes: know that Alastair is picking Kamala up and that I used the five-stripe ace flag for Christopher so it would match Grace's. Also notice the little flags-accessories some of them have, because it's always a great day to spread my Demi/Aspec! Everyone agenda.
Fanart taglist is in the notes, let me know if you want to be added or removed from it!
