Hey Cassie! I love your books!!! Well, I was looking at the family tree of Clockwork Princess and I realized something strange: why did all Sophie’s kids die before her? Is this going to be explained in TLH? Poor Sophie… =( Kisses and thank you!! — my-prince-of-the-ocean
Remember that not everything about the family tree is accurate - it’s meant to be a found object, something made by a person, so the person who made it could have made mistakes/been concealing things on purpose. Maybe one of Sophie’s kids married a mundane, or turned into a vampire, or an Iron Sister, and the person who recorded the family tree politely left that info off.
Hi Cassie! I’m super excited for TLH ( I know, I know, it’s a long wait)!! I was looking at all the posts about it, and I thought about something. According to shadowhunter’s wiki and the family tree, Lucie Herondale (can’t wait to hear more about her and her brother!) was born in 1891, which means she’d be about 12 in TLH. Isn’t Jesse like 12 years older than her? Also, will Gabriel an Cecily appear in TLH? Or other characters from TID? — alix-gryffindor-rules-potter
Yes, according to the family tree Jesse is way older than Lucie. Of course he’s also dead according to Midnight Heir. You’re just going to have to trust that the weird stuff with time and dates in the family tree is meant to represent deliberate mysteries that are also mysteries for the characters!
Gabriel, Cecily, Will, Tessa, Jem, they all appear in TiD. They’re part of their children’s lives — think of them as occupying the places that Maryse, Luke, Robert and Jocelyn occupy in TMI.
"I love your books! Just curious, when Magnus and Tessa where living together where they ever “friends with benefits?” — annaloli"
Hee hee heeeeee. Hee hee.
No, in my mind they’ve never been anything but platonic friends.
