Rewatching He’s Coming to Me and reveling in the wonderfulness of episodes 4 and 5 (fan dee nah!, cheating the test *g*, figuring out Met’s name, the birthday date!, Thun’s struggle with his sexuality, Met’s heartbreak, the entire fucking rooftop scene, and of course the KISS!) as I try to mentally steel myself for the Shadowhunters series finale. I refuse to watch it by myself, so I’m waiting for @rebelqueenss so we can suffer together.
I’m sure we will suffer – and let’s be real, probably not in the “I
can’t believe it’s ending!” way, because unfortunately I haven’t been
very happy with 3b in too many ways to count. Often, when I really love a
show, I never actually finish watching it, so it won’t ever be
completely over – it’s why I still haven’t seen the end of season 2 of Agent Carter.
While with Shadowhunters,
my love is for the potential it had (and sadly squandered way too
often), for the characters I’ve come to love and of course most of all
for the beauty of the parabatai relationship and my beloved OTP. So in a
way I’m actually glad it’ll be over, because then we can go ahead and
fix canon in whatever way we want – that’s what fanfic is for, after
(I’m very much hoping my inspiration will return to me, because I’ve been so disillusioned, I haven’t even wanted to write my missing parabatai scenes drabbles… Ironic, considering that the sidelining of their relationship is one of my biggest pet peeves – just like all relationships that aren’t romantic have been sidelined.
