Hello! Cute boy got your attention? I am zipping by in the middle of editing to announce that Jordan Gavaris of Orphan Black will be reading the next of the Bane Chronicles. If you haven’t seen Orphan Black, Jordan’s character Felix is one of the most fantastic things about an already fantastic show with amazing performances, and we’re so happy to have Jordan reading what might be the funniest of the Bane Chronicles installments: What to Buy the Shadowhunter Who Has Everything. In which Magnus angsts, calls Ragnor, and seeks advice from a tentacled demon about his love life.
Look out for an interview where I chat with Jordan about reading the Bane Chronicles and also angle for Orphan Black spoilers. (If you aren’t watching it, you should be! Sarah RB turned me onto it and I am grateful enough to forgive her for the stunt she pulled in Italy with the bat.)
Welcome, Jordan. :)
Drew some good ‘ol Clary and Jace! (TMI written by @CassieClare )
Clace. Like original Coke. :P
So, I haven’t read The Infernal Devices yet, and I was wondering if I will be confused about the part with Tessa Gray and who she is? Should I read before the new book comes out? Thanks. :) And just wondering how many people and who will die in the last book. — hoona-boona
Hello! If you mean because Tessa appears in City of Heavenly Fire, no, you shouldn’t be confused. I’ve tried really hard to make it so that you can read The Infernal Devices and never read The Mortal Instruments and it still makes sense, and you can read The Mortal Instruments and never read The Infernal Devices and it still makes sense. It helps to have read The Infernal Devices because then Tessa is a familiar figure, and her activities, and relation to the other characters, should be more interesting. Otherwise, there’s still a legitimate reason for her to be in the part of the story she is in, and it shouldn’t be confusing any more than Brother Zachariah’s appearances in CoFA and CoLS are confusing.
And just wondering how many people and who will die in the last book. — hoona-boona
Maia and Jordan~
Felt like drawing them since I haven’t really drawn them yet. Lol. Okay, back to work!
The mortal Instruments
“How have you been keeping? You know, since the last time you summoned me,” said Elyaas, the demon.
“What?” Magnus asked.
“You don’t remember me?” said the tentacle demon.
“I summon a lot of demons,” Magnus said weakly.
There was a long pause. Magnus stared into the bottom of his coffee cup and desperately willed more coffee to appear. This was something a lot of mundanes did too, but Magnus had one up on those suckers. His mug did slowly fill again, until it was brimming with rich dark liquid. He sipped and looked at Elyaas, who was shifting uncomfortably from tentacle to tentacle.
“Well,” said Elyaas. “This is awkward.”
“It’s nothing personal,” said Magnus.
“Maybe if I jogged your memory,” Elyaas suggested helpfully. “You summoned me when you were searching for a demon who cursed a Shadowhunter? Bill Herondale?”
“Will Herondale,” said Magnus.
Elyaas snapped his tentacles as if they were fingers. “I knew it was something like that.”
“You know,” Magnus said, enlightened, “I think I do remember. I’m sorry about that. I realized right away that you weren’t the demon I was looking for. You looked kind of blue in one of the drawings, but obviously you are not blue, and I was wasting your time. You were pretty understanding about it.”
“Think nothing of it.” Elyaas waved a tentacle. “These things happen. And I can look blue. You know, in the right light.”
“Lighting’s important, it’s true,” said Magnus.
“So whatever happened with Bill Herondale and that curse a blue demon put on him?” The cecaelia demon’s interest seemed genuine.
“Will Herondale,” Magnus said again. “It’s actually rather a long story.”
“You know, sometimes we demons pretend we’re cursing people and we don’t really do it,” said Elyaas chattily. “Like, just for kicks? It’s kind of a thing with us. Did you know that?”
“You could have mentioned it a century or two ago,” Magnus observed frostily.
Elyaas shook his head, smiling a slime-bedecked smile. “The old pretend-to-curse. It’s a classic. Very funny.” He appeared to notice Magnus’s unimpressed expression for the first time. “Not from your perspective, of course.”
“It wasn’t funny for Bill Herondale!” said Magnus. “Oh, damn it. Now you’ve got me doing it.”
