swfrthepox said: Hi again Cass! Since you said that Jace nor Tessa might not be the last Herondale, is it because Clace will going to have a baby? By the Angel, let them have a baby! :D AND (again), why is “Simon’s Sacrifice” not included in CoHF? I hope you could answer. Thank you!
They might have a baby one day, but that is admittedly not what I meant. :)
"Simon’s Sacrifice" is the chapter now called "Judas Kiss." My editor didn’t like "Simon’s Sacrifice" — she pointed out it gave the game away a bit regarding what was going to happen in the chapter. I acknowledged her rightness and changed the title.
dumbledorelovessherbetlemons said: Jace said that he wasn’t sure how he felt about children. But he’s decided to take the Herondale name anyways (implying that he wants to continue the line of Herondales) and Clary has a general interest in children… Does this mean we can expect Clace babies in tda or twp?? What about Sizzy babies? Thanks so much!
Jace being so young I think making this decision was entirely about his identity and not about continuing the line of Herondales. (And he wanted the manor. :D) And Clary likes Emma — but a lot of people like kids and feel protective of them without wanting them. I’m not saying yes or no, but as someone who loves kids and doesn’t want them myself I do push back against the narrative that everyone has to have children to be happy. But as we do follow Clary, Jace, Simon, etc. through the books, hearing and sometimes seeing what’s happening with them, it is a question that will be answered.
And besides, something’s going to happen that renders Jace’s concerns, if he has any, about continuing the Herondale line, somewhat moot. :P
Aren’t these gorgeous? Cassandra Jean and I got talking about the language of flowers and how every flower has a meaning. She’s started drawing each character with flowers I’ve picked to represent them — here’s Clary with violets, Jocelyn with day lilies, and Sebastian with monkshood.
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.
I'm Cassandra Clare. I write urban fantasy books about the demon-fighting Shadowhunters. (And I'm also cowriting a series about a young magician called Callum Hunt with Holly Black). Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments series is set in modern New York and begins with City of Bones. The prequels to the Mortal Instruments series are called The Infernal Devices and the sequels (first book, Lady Midnight, set to release in 2015) are called The Dark Artifices. A movie based on City of Bones was released by Sony Pictures August 23rd 2013. The first book of the Magisterium series about Call Hunt, will come out September 9, 2014.
