8 Things Responsible Siblings Are Tired of Hearing

If you tell us to lighten up one. More. Time...
Freeform

Eldest or not, being the sibling blessed/cursed with the responsibility gene can be such a bummer. You just want the best for your brothers and sisters, but sometimes (or most of the time!), they take it the wrong way. Alec Lightwood from Shadowhunters finds this struggle very real—he just can't help but worry about his sister Isabelle and adoptive brother Jace, who seem to make it their life's mission to cause trouble, at least from Alec's POV. While these lines are all made up, we bet Alec and his kindred spirits—Shadowhunters and Mundanes alike—can relate to these!

  1. "Lighten up!"
