babies. sacrifice. CoHF spoilers.


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

Would you ever write a Bane Chronicles sequel?( preferably with more malec?) Also, would you consider writing more short stories??

Maureen, Sarah and I loved writing the Bane Chronicles very much and we’re definitely planning another set of short stories. We feel like we’ve  mined Magnus’ life a lot with BC, and we wanted to try something different: the next set of stories will be centered around  (CoHF spoilers)

Alec & Simon

blue-boring-ers said:

I found Simon’s evaluation of Alec in CoHF very contradictory; he considers him to be the “most conservative of the Lightwoods”, and the one that looks down upon Downworlders the most. Throughout the entire series, at least in comparison to Jace, Isabelle, and his parents, he has seemed the most accepting of Downworlders in general. The Bane Chronicles also cemented this part of Alec’s character, in my opinion. Is this just a case of Simon not knowing Alec well and making false judgements?

Hello! CoHF spoilers under cut.
