Which pan flag is the right one please I don't want to mess it up
THIS is the real pansexual flag we’ve been using for years:
bright pink, yellow, and blue stripes. this is the actual one.
THIS however, is made by mspec lesbian exclusionists and purity culture obsessed twt users:
dont use this or any other “new” pan flag they try to fucking make. its not our flag. its never been our fucking flag. as a pansexual i fucking hate everyone who uses this or tries to get content creators to support this. fuck exclusionists.
it’s come to my attention that not everyone is scared of moths, to which i reply: what the fuck? you should be
Person B gets stood up by their date and person A’s is an asshole. So, they decide to ask B out, as they’d seen them sitting alone, and the two go back to A’s place for a nice, homemade dinner instead.
Is this not…Thomastair?
i think that probably the reason why ppl like will more than alastair is bc it's very simple and easy to say that "will was mean bc he was trying to make everybody hate him bc he was cursed" than to get into all the intricacies and trauma of alastair's reasons... like it's basically just ppl refusing complicated answers imo
That’s really a pattern in CC’s writing. Will does bad things, but he thought he was cursed! James does bad things, but he was under a magical spell! Jace does shitty things, but he was trying to fall out of love with Clary! Julian did bad things, but he got rid of his emotions!
She writes in these shitty plot devices because she knows thst it’s not cute. Men can make mistakes, of course they can, but condemning their actions is not the right way to go about it? Just give them a proper redemption arc OR BETTER YET just make them apologize. It’s that simple.
Also both James ane Matthew, who are considerably more present in the story than Alastair is, see him as iredeemable or, at the very least, a bad person. Some readers don’t want to know Alastair’s backstory and just believe whatever they say because CC doesn’t give a fuck. Let your characters villanize Alastair, a gay asian brown man + an abuse and grooming victim, what could go wrong?
And of course some people don’t give a shit about that. To them Will is a cishet white man and Alastair is a queer man of color, nothing else matters.
Alastair’s gaze softened, and for a moment, Thomas felt himself back in Paris, hands in his pockets, talking in a low voice to Alastair Carstairs as if it were only the two of them in all the world.

WAIT WAIT WAIT I WAS RAMBLING IN THE TAGS BUT DOES THIS MEAN EUGENIA WOULD BE ALYA/RENA ROUGE??? BEST FRIEND OF LADYBUG? wait would that work even though the headcanon has alastair as the adrien/felix type figure,,, i suppose that would leave christopher to be the nino to his chat but that doesn’t fit the relationship in addition to thomas being the marinette figure UNLESS that part doesn’t matter and we move on because my sleep adled brain wants to see eugenia in the fox miraculous costume,,, and don’t even get me started on luka not deserving to be compared to charles,,,
i’m so sorry if this was a joke to y’all i’m now invested and i need answers
i am not the brains of this operation someone help this hurts my brain

Ummm…so I was bored and missing my baby. So here’s my drawing of our saviour Alastair Carstairs.
Ps. Im shitty at drawing as you can see but did it for fun anywaysss
This was inspired by an image i saw in the school library. Reminded me of the image of alastair tied up in tge tarot cards. And also a message to alastair saying that he is worth holding Cortana.
What do you want to know?
Kamala wasn’t one to overextend her welcome when she knew her presence wasn’t wanted. Over the years she had gotten exceptionally good at telling when this was the case, saving herself the embarrassment of midless small talk to cover up the obvious truth with simply deciding to leave on her own terms. But now, as she sat across the Carstairs drawing room, looking at the man before her, Kamala could tell she wasn’t wanted. She just didn’t care. Alastair narrowed his eyes at her and sat in silence, as if waiting for her to depart out of sheer awkwardness. If she had been inserting herself into his company for any other reason than the one she had, maybe Kamala would have succumbed and made her leave. But she had a mission, and even if Alastair seemed to grow more annoyed by her presence by the day, she couldn’t leave. Not in good conscience.
It had been a few days after the leviathans attack, and it had been less than a week since Elias Carstairs death. She had always been curious about the Carstairs since they had arrived. Maybe it had been the overwhelming rumors that came with their arrival, maybe it was just the fact it had been a long time since she’d seen anyone that looked even the littlest bit like her. She knew of Alastair’s existence because of Charles, but if the short mentions of his name were not much to go by, he gave her less in real life. He was always so closed off, a mystery. Kamala liked mysteries, there was part of her that felt drawn to him like one might be drawn to the unknown
But she had never seen a reason to approach besides her curiosity, until now. Until she had heard Mrs. Carstairs had been sent to the silent city, and that Cordelia Herondale had taken off to Paris. She had never particularly found herself a keened to gossip, but one couldn’t stop herself from hearing rumors when they were being spread everywhere she turned. While everyone gossiped about the possible implications of Mrs. Herondales disappearance, she had felt a small pang in her chest.
Kamala wasn’t sure why her first thought was that he’d be completely alone after his fathers death, but there was something about it that had not allowed her to let it go
So she went over the next day, on the excuse that she was dropping off a gift from her family in hopes of his mothers health and the babies save birth
It had only taken one look at him to realize why Kamala felt a certain responsibility to this boy she had never even correctly met
She could recognize the pushed down grief when she saw it, it was not that long ago the same haunted look had been worn by her eyes.
The mere sight of it had taken her aback, there were so many things she wanted to say, but they all died in her tongue. After that day she had decided to attempt to keep him some company, working up the courage to see if he’d allow her to help him with the grief.
She wanted to give him what she didn’t have, because she knew what it was like to have the world tell you to move on when you were breaking inside. And no one should go through that alone
He had been glad to indulge her at first, but now he was tired, and she was relatively sure he had quickly come to loathe her visits
But she wasn’t giving up that easily
“That’s a lovely book you have there” she tried to carry the conversation, pointing towards a book on the table “Great expectations, good reading material"
"It was my sisters” he said with near no emotion “Have never actually read it
Kamala mentally cursed, his sister was probably the furthest subject he wanted to discuss right now
"Well Mrs. Herondale has an admirable taste” she mumbled, keeping her words low"
Alastair kept looking at her in silence, Kamala wasn’t sure what she was trying to accomplish but she was certain she didn’t want to hear what he was thinking
“Is there anything you want to ask me Mr. Carstairs” she said, unable to stop herself
“No” he considered “I’m just trying to figure out what you’re doing here"
"I’m not sure what you mean"
"It’s been 5 days Mrs. Bridgestocks, we’ve made awkward small talk, we’ve discussed recent news, I am certain we are the last people we would like to see, so please explain to me what you are doing here”
Alastair laid back and tilted his head “Because if the reason you are here is what I think it is i’d rather you confess now and save yourself and your family the embarrassment"
She felt a chill run down her back "What?”
“You won’t find any information on the herondales with me” Alastair explained ‘So if that is what you are here for please make your leave and tell the inquisitor no one knows anything and that he’ll simply have to wait for Mr. Herondale to return like the rest of us"
“Both Mr. Herondales” he scoffed, correcting himself
“So you think I’m a spy?"
"Well aren’t you?"
"No” she argued “And it quiet offends me that you think I am”
For the first time since she had arrived, Kamala could see him show her an emotion other than annoyance, he raised an eyebrow and tried to hide his confusion
“So you aren’t here to try to get information on the herondales for your father?"
"Of course not” Kamala let out, crossing her arms
“Then, forgive me for being so forward with you but” his eyebrows furrowed as he looked at her “Why are you here"
"Well it’s certainly not for the good reading recommendations” she exclaimed, pointing at the book at the table “Have you truly never read Great expectations?"
"I’ve been horrible to you” Alastair said standing up, starting to pace around the drawing room “All this time I thought you were a spy, why in the name of the angel would you have put up with that?"
If she told him the truth, she knew she’d drive him away, but maybe she could come close enough "I know your mother and sister left, I thought you could use some companion"
"There was no reason for you to do so I am perfectly capable of -"
"Being capable of being alone doesn’t mean one should be subjected to do so” she cut him off “Believe me I know"
"So here’s what I think, if we’re both going to be alone we might as well be alone together, I’m not asking for much, just allow us to have tea, once a week, that way you can decide whether you hate me or not without believing I am spy clouding your judgement"
Kamala stuck out her hand "We can make a deal out of it"
For a second she had feared she had gone too far, maybe he really did loathe her and he was going to ask her to leave. But after a second Alastair carefully took her hand
"I’ll see you next week’

they're not my favorite characters but i didn't have much of a problem with them
Ok, I have anti tags for them if you want to see more in depth discussions (I’ll be tagging this post with them) but here’s a summary
James: here’s a post I made about him. I’m not anti him btw but those things bother me a lot sooo.
Alright, Matthew’s part ended up being way longer than I expected, probably because TLH is still fresh in my memory ajdjdjdj
Hope this explains it! There must be more that I’m forgetting but if I don’t post it now I will forget to post it so :33
