I have been saying since the very beginning that Alec and Jace’s relationship is complete and utter bullshit. They are supposed to be best friends and brothers along with being paratabi. Yet, Jace doesn’t know the basic thing like what Alec is afraid of? I know that of my best friends and even though I’m not all that close to my two younger sisters I certainly know what they are afraid of.
Shit like this comes up when you get to know someone. Yet, Alec and Jace have been friends and paratabi since they were fucking children and Jace knows nothing about Alec. This really does confirm to me that Jace really doesn’;t give one shit about Alec. I say it once, a say it a hundred times: Alec is a tool to be used and discarded and nothing more.
By the way, this is such nice representation for your only Gay character in your series Cassandra Clare. I would like to also point that any type of relationship between Alec and Jace have really gross implications. Not only does Alec repeatedly refer to Jace as his brother, so pseudo-incest ahoy! It also implies that a sexual relationship might between Alec and Jace. However, Alec wants a romantic relationship with Jace. And Jace would probably use Alec to get what he wants sexually and then discard him. Clare has already proven that If your name isn’t Clary Fray, this is what Jace does to the people he’s in a relationship with.
Yeah, in the end, Jace and Alec’s so-called close bond is complete and utter bullshit. And Alec better should be knocking on wood that Jace is straight and not at all romantically interested in him.
