Mark

Heeeeyyy, can you tell us anything about Mark Blackthorn??? PLEASE? I feel like he’s going to be a sex god — kay-the-quinn

But why would you think that?

Joking aside, I feel we should revisit this question after City of Heavenly Fire. You’ll meet him in that, and can make up your mind accordingly!

Only a month and a half till CoHF. Very excited for you to meet the Blackthorns and rejoin Clary, Jace, Alec and the others for their last adventure.

*Picture by Cassandra Jean of course. Note the pointy ears! Mark is part-faerie, it’s one of the most interesting things about his story.

A while ago, I was discussing the “dirty sexy alley scene” from City of Fallen Angels with Cassandra Jean.
Her: What’s the DSAS?
Me: Many years ago in the Shadowhunter fandom, someone dubbed the scene in COFA “the dirty sexy alley scene.” Then they all started getting monikers like that — Dirty Sexy Bedroom Scene, Dirty Sexy Club Scene, etc. At the moment they are:
DSAS: the alley scene from CoFA
DSBS: Tessa and Jem in the bedroom from Clockwork Prince
DSCS: Jace and Clary in the club in Lost Souls
DSDS: Will and Tessa together in the dungeon/cell in Princess
DSES: Clary and Jace in an “E” place that is as yet unidentified but apparently underwater. :)

It seems to be one per book, since there’s no Dirty Sexy Balcony scene for Will and Tessa, or Bedroom Scenes for Simon and Izzy or Maia and Jordan or Alec and Magnus. I don’t know why, though!”

So Cassandra Jean kindly offered to draw them. Who am I to say no? So have a little Sexy Club Scene from Lost Souls.

ETA: CLARY WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR HAND

Magnus’ scarf is like its own character at this point.

The first of the Rings (Pentacles( arcana tarot cards from Cassandra Jean’s complete Shadowhunter Tarot. The ten of rings shows the Branwell family ring, with a pattern of waves, and Charlotte and Henry. The nine of rings shows Jace and Will Herondale and the Herondale family ring with a pattern of birds. The eight of rings shows Matthew Fairchild, the Fairchild family ring with a pattern of wings, and the seven of rings shows Clary and Jonathan Morgenstern and the Morgenstern ring with its pattern of stars. (Their pose is a little like the pose on the cover of City of Heavenly Fire — cool.)

The last of the Swords arcana tarot cards from Cassandra Jean’s complete Shadowhunter Tarot Simon and Isabelle as the Ace of Blades, Jocelyn as the Queen, Valentine the Knight (why is he riding a horse shirtless? Is that safe?) Luke as the Page of blades, and the one who started it all, Jonathan Shadowhunter, as the King.

Part of Cassandra Jean’s Seasons project — TMI was fall, TiD was winter, and the Dark Artifices was summer. The Last Hours is spring. (And yes there was totally an earlier version of this but I asked CJ to re-draw it as the characters were re-imagined and some discarded from the story.)
From left, Alastair Carstairs arguing with Charles Fairchild, Christopher Lightwood and Anna Lightwood, Cordelia Carstairs and Lucie Herondale, Matthew Fairchild and James Herondale, and Grace and Jessie Blackthorn.
Hi cassie, how are you?  I love your books so much. I’d like to know how is the relationship between Charles and Matthew ‘cause Charles looks like so serious and Matthew “naughty”.  — alecssoul
Matthew and Charles are definitely very different brothers. They have an interesting relationship since Charles wants to become the next Consul and is very rules-bound, and Matthew is a rule-breaker.
