Ignis aurum probat. Fire tempers gold.– Iron Sisters motto, City of Lost Souls, Cassandra Clare
I’m getting my Shadowhunter Rhyme shirt tomorrow! So excited :D If you’ve seen my Shadowhunter Rhyme graphic, I printed that on a shirt and I will definitely take a picture as soon as I get it :) No, I’m not selling them and I can’t, and no you can’t print your own. I’m sorry, but the runes aren’t my property and there’s just too many...
Two new Clockwork Princess snippets! →
themortalinstitute: Today has been a very busy day for Shadowhunters (and Downworlders :P ) as Cassie Clare releases two new snippets from Clockwork Princess at the request of fans on Tumblr. The first includes Sophie and Gideon, two characters that aren’t often requested so thankfully Cassie was feeling generous. Gideon touched her cheek, lightly, with the tips of his fingers. “Did you know...
So who agrees that the City of Lost Souls epilogue was 40pages of repeated heartbreak and death? I re-read it last night and that was all I could think…
When you're part of the TMI fandom, you must...
How Cassie Clare thinks: Hm, I have this really cool book in mind about demon hunters that are angels. Let me make all the characters completely perfect & the plot so twisted my readers will die.
3 books later: Oh look at that! Even though I've perfectly completed & tied up all loose ends, I think I'll write a prequel series with an even more screwed up love triangle.
1st book of prequel: I think I'll screw my readers over even more by adding 3 more books to the mix.
CoFA & CoLS: Let me just mess everything up one more time. Oh I know they're all waiting for Jace & Clary to just go already, but I think I'll make them wait. Meanwhile, I'll make everyone suffer in agony for 2 years before they get the last book. Oh! And I'll make yet ANOTHER series of an entirely new set of characters just to make sure my entire readership is dead!
Meanwhile: Let's make a movie, but I'm not gonna tell anyone who's casted as whom. Instead, I'll give them an actor a year.
And then Cassie's just like: *makes balloon animals*
Making a list of TMI/ID memorable quotes...
…and it’s beginning to get epicly long. And I mean memorable and in deep and pondering and Latin or Greek or Italian. Not even the funny ones (that’s a whole other list!) If you want to help, by all means please! Serious or funny. Just fan mail or ask box it to me.
In difficult times, in dark times, some people shine.– City of Souls, Cassandra Clare Isabelle Lightwood graphic for this quote
When we rise or fall, we do it together:... →
tomhardysface: jemherondale: bringcolorintoyourworld: As much as I want the TMI fandom to explode with newcommers, when the movie comes out I’m going to miss our small little family. I don’t think I’m ready for people to join the fandom, who have only seen the movie and have no intentions of reading the book. Who won’t know the characters complete story, because I’m sure the film makers...
New Crafty/Jewelry Tumblr
I have a new tumblr to follow my jewelry-making and craft stuff. Lately I’ve been obsessed with headpieces, medieval era, and steampunk, but I make lots of other jewelry as well. See it here http://bejeweledmoondesigns.tumblr.com/ Spread the word if you like it!
writing with Holly
cassandraclare: Holly: You can’t write that two characters have a beautiful spiritual relationship. Me: Why not? Holly “We have a beautiful spiritual relationship” is code for “we’re going to have sex.” Me: God, you have a jaundiced view of the world. Holly: You know I’m right. Me: *deletes* I have a friend who does this to me. Lol.
10 Reasons Why Mortal Instruments Will Be the New...
10. Jace’s sayings. Actually, all their sayings. Cassandra Clare knows how to make some memorable quotes! 9. You are fully able to draw the runes all over yourself. And the Shadowhunter family rings…you so want them. 8. There’s a whole new Nephilim world inside the mundane one. Witchlights, weapons, steles, runes, gear, clothes, a government, books, I mean there’s even a...
L’amor che move il sole e l’altre stelle.– Divine Comedy, Dante Probably one of the favorite references I have from TMI. Love love love!
Flectere si nequeo superos, Achaeronta movebo. If I cannot move heaven, I will...– For some reason, this is one of my favorite Latin phrases that appears in the Mortal Instruments series.
It means “Shadowhunters: Looking better in black than the widows of our...– Jace Herondale/Lightwood/Morgenstern/Wayland, Mortal Instruments, Cassandra Clare Just ordered a custom tank top with this on it and other designs ^.^ I will reveal when I get it!
Cassandra Clare: Clockwork Princess snippet →
cassandraclare: Will rose slowly to his feet. He could not believe he was doing what he was doing, but it was clear that he was, clear as the silver rim around the black of Jem’s eyes. “If there is a life after this one,” he said, “let me meet you in it, James Carstairs.” “There will be other lives.” Jem… Infernal Devices is personally a little more favored for me but I love them both to...
When you totally freak out about casting news for...
And you don’t care. At all. Shadowhunter for life! ♥ ♥
Bloodthirsty little beasts.– Will Herondale, Clockwork Angel, Cassandra Clare I honestly just used this as an expression/reference in everyday life. Unintentionally (like I wasn’t intentionally trying to quote the book). It was pretty awesome.
Cassandra Clare: Casting news: Isabelle →
cassandraclare: This will probably be up on Deadline and all the other good places soon enough, but Sony told me I could spill the news so I AM GOING TO. I’ve been traveling and doing Dark Artifices research in Italy and Vatican City so I wasn’t hiding from y’all, but it is nice to come back with BIG FUN NEWS TO… YES totally YES! I can completely see her as Isabelle (so long as they...
It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far...– Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities I already actually enjoyed this novel despite having to read it for school, but reading Infernal Devices made me like it more. It is a bit boring in the beginning, but by the end I had finished it like a week before I had to. :) I can definitely see Carton...
Cassandra Clare: Here are Clary and Jace, do you like them?
Readers: *shipping them*
Cassandra Clare: Too bad. Because they're siblings.
Readers: Sebastian seems nice. We now ship Clary with him.
Cassandra Clare: Well, that's too bad because they're siblings.
Trying so hard to write! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this is why I’ve been absent lately. Trying to write a novel in a month. Needless to say, I’m about 6-7 days behind (on day 10) and I just lost my drive to write. After having had it for the past few hours in which I was dragged out of my house. Whyyyy is this so difficult???
By the Angel! Name of the Angel… The sake of the Angel– Cassandra Clare and all her Shadowhunter Angel Raziel glory ^.^
So if I made Jem's yinfen box from Infernal...
Would anyone be interested in buying it? I’m planning to make the box anyways for a video (and my personal desire haha) but if it turns out okay, I might consider selling them. I just want to know if anyone would be interested…I’m making it this week (or next week) so I’ll post pics soon. It will not include yinfen, however. That would be irresponsible xD
