Bet You Didn’t Notice – 3. Taylor Swift Ours TMI Malec Love

I know the title sounds weird and random, but it’s not, trust me.

Ok, so, strictly this shouldn’t really be here, as it’s not really something to notice/not notice, but it’s too good to miss out. If you haven’t read The Mortal Instruments (by Cassandra Clare) then I would advise you read no further. Warning over.

Anyway, Malec definately deserve their own post. As does Taylor Swift. So here it is!

So, I was listening to the Taylor Swift song Ours (if you haven’t heard it, I seriously advise you listen to it- it’s amazing!!!!! You can listen to it here. Seriously listen to it- it’s amazing. One of her best songs. Ever) and I suddenly noticed how if Malec had their own theme song (which they totally deserve) it would be this song. I shall now explain why.

Full credit to Taylor Swift for the awesome lyrics, full credit to me for spotting the link with Malec.

So, the first relevant lyrics goes like this:

“Seems like there’s always someone who disapproves” (Taylor Swift, Ours)

In Malec love, this is just so true. Everyone dissaproves. Everyone. There’s more like this in this verse (“they’ll judge it like the know about me and you” “the jury’s out, but my choice is you”) and all of them make me think of Malec’s troubles. In the chorus there’s also “people through rocks at things that shine” “life makes love look hard” “the stakes are high, the water’s rough” which just add to this. I mean, it’s a total fit, right? I wouldn’t be suprised if it was based on Malec.

The next part fits so well I wanna scream. It’s in verse two.

“Ghosts from your past gonna jump out at me”


I mean, this is exactly Alec’s problem, right? That there are all these “ghosts of Magnus’ past”, all his exes. Poor Alec. But it’s such an amazing fit.

Then there’s the next verse, which is brilliant.

“And it’s not theirs to speculate, if it’s wrong and, your hands are tough but they are where, mine belong in. I’ll fight their doubt and give you faith, with this song for you”

How perfect is that???? I just love this verse. It makes me wanna cry. And it just fits Malec so well.

Now, next comes the part where Tay sings, “and any snide remarks from my father…… will be ignored, coz my heart is yours”. I MEAN THIS IS SO MALEC- ROBERT IS SO DISAPPROVING!!! (The ……. does say “about your tattoos”, but we can’t have it all. Remove that part and it fits so perfectly I probably will cry. This cross of two of my absolute fave fandoms just makes me wanna scream, cry, listen to the song and re read the book all at once. If you don’t get it, imagine your fave singer/band writing a song that fits one of your fave couples from one of your absolute fave books. Now you understand)

Finally, I’m gonna say this quote from the very end. “People throw rocks at things that shine, but they can’t take what’s ours. The stakes are high, the water’s rough, but this love is ours.” I MEAN HOW PERFECT DOES IT GET????? I AM A PUDDLE OF TEARS ON THE FLOOR RIGHT NOW. This is so perfect. From now own Malec’s motto is officially “they can’t take what’s ours”

I just love this song and book so much. I seriously recommend both to everyone. And I love the way they link together, and I hope you do too.
