So for those WTFers you don’t remember, I’m going to remind you that the cup only works on children. So, no one is acknowledging that for Clave that to make new Shadowhunters, they would have essentially had to snatch kids from their homes and force them to be Shadowhunters.
And I would like to also mention that even if they used orphans, it would still be wrong, because legally and mentally children can not fucking consent. It’s already canon that Shadowhunters can’t just quit when they feel like it, so if those children who are changed can’t later decide that they just want to quit and have a normal life. Those children are forced to be soldiers for the rest of their lives!
Yet, Alec and Jace are just all about getting the cup back. It would be one thing if they just wanted to take it back from Valentine, but no, Alec made it pretty obvious that they want the cup so they can make new Shadowhunters.
