Why are people still running this fan narrative that Magnus is a dupe?

Magnus knows the Seelie Queen has an agenda. The entire scene between Magnus, Luke, and Raphael shows that he’s aware that she’s positioning herself to end up with the most power in this Downworlder Alliance. Everything Luke questioned about the offer, Magnus questioned himself right to the Seelie Queen’s face. 

The look Magnus has as he says, “…I believe that Seelies cannot lie.” to Raphael shows that he doesn’t fully trust her but he trusts her more than he does the Clave. Which is a fair choice cuz the Clave is literally the most garbage group of people on the planet outside of the Circle, aka the radicalized racist terrorist organization that spawned out of the Clave’s institutionalized racial prejudice.

Magnus isn’t a damned idiot. He sees what The Seelie Queen’s doing and he’s uncomfortable with it but he’ll do it for his people.

His choices are between someone who might have an ulterior motive but who also cannot outright lie to him and his literal oppressors who have countless times lied to, abandoned, and violently harmed/murdered his people.

Magnus is going with the lesser of two evils here and though he’ll need a drink to get through it, damn him if he won’t swallow his pride for a bit if it means even one more warlock is safer.

It seemed Seelie Realm was the ONLY place that could protect downworlders from the effect of the Soul Sword and the power of the Angel. The Institute was able to contain the Soul Sword but how many downworlders could fit in there? And let’s not start with the Clave’s willingness at saving downworlders’ live, it doesn’t exist. 

Magnus chose a side that even when Valentine succeeded with his plan to activate the Soul Sword or raise the Angel, his people would still survive. This episode showed that out of all the Downworld leaders Magnus was the most protective of his kind. He broke up with Alec so he could focus on his people. He was willing to let the Queen treat him like an obedient hound (kept his mouth shut when she talked, came when she called) all for their sake. The Seelie Queen had her own agenda and you’d be a fool to think that Magnus trusted her completely, he’d never gonna let anything bad happen to his people if he was willing to sacrifice this much for them.

The show even went with the juxtaposition of the scene where Magnus looking longingly at the photos of him and Alec to the scene of Madzie calling for him and running into his arms. 

Alec represents Magnus’ own personal happiness, whereas Madzie, a little Black warlock girl, represents what he’s sacrificing this happiness for. And people in tags are going “why is he siding with the Queen?” – “What’s the catch?” This is. Madzie’s life is the “catch”.  The show isn’t even subtle about it. Madzie represents everything Magnus is fighting for - his people, his family.

People who are running this fan narrative that Magnus is “OOC” are either white, or have white worldview on things. They simply don’t recognize a racial issue when it’s looking at them, because they don’t have experience of racial / ethnic oppression / genocide. So they end up trivializing this actually really well written metaphor on racism, and reduce it to a simple quarrel between lovers. But the thing is that Malec isn’t just a LGBT couple, they are also an interracial couple. And you can’t take race out of the equation no matter how much you want to.

my biggest pet peeve is when I call a boy pretty and about six people have their necks swivel all the way around on their shoulders exorcist style just to tell me that boys aren’t pretty they’re handsome

I like that despite how big and how long it existed, half of the Batman fandom don’t even know what the Wayne Enterprises does. 

That’s because it literally does everything
