Chain of thorns theories even though we know nothing about it: speed round
Cassie鈥檚 going to wait until the absolute very last moment possible to solve most conflicts (it do be like that sometimes 馃様)
James and Cordelia are gonna hook up, and either Matthew or Magnus is gonna walk in
At some point, Cordelia will be imprisoned in the shadow realm
There will be at least one cheesy classic Herondale love confession

Cordelia: you鈥檙e welcome to share my friends.
Alastair: *looks at merry thieves*
Alastair: I don鈥檛 want those.

Funny how I wanted Grace Blackthorn to literally die after chain of gold but now she's like a comfort character for me. Funny.

honestly i get why its so huge. it just has to be. there鈥檚 too many things to resolve from matthew鈥檚 alcoholism to thomastair to jesse and lucie running off with malcolm to the love triangle?? to fit that into, im guessing, 700-800 pages?

one thing i always found funny about chain of iron is how everyone in the book acts like the inquisitor was just being a dick when he arrested thomas. like, bridgestock found him standing above a corpse, covered in blood, holding a knife. what was he supposed to think.聽

a thomastair ficlet | read on ao3聽| inspiration
Gentle morning light filtered in through the window to paint Thomas鈥 face where he slept on the couch, an arm tucked behind his head and a book open on his chest. Alastair smiled fondly at the sight as he knelt beside the couch. He鈥檇 been out all night on patrol and had told Thomas not to wait up鈥攊t seemed he hadn鈥檛 heeded the request.聽
Careful as he could, Alastair reached out a hand and plucked up the book, glancing at the title before he set it aside: Jane Austen鈥檚 Pride and Prejudice. Fitting, he supposed.
The movement was enough to cause Thomas to stir. His eyes fluttered open and focused on Alastair with some difficulty. 鈥淕ood morning, love,鈥 he said thickly, rubbing at his eyes and attempting to sit up.
Alastair pushed him back down, saying, 鈥淲ait here, aziz-am, I鈥檒l be back in just a moment.鈥 He didn鈥檛 wait for Thomas respond before he rose, toeing off his shoes and shrugging off his jacket and weapons belt, leaving them on a nearby chair. He was still in gear, but at least it was clean.
Thomas had sat up anyway and was now watching Alastair with an soft expression of love that never ceased to make Alastair鈥檚 heart thud. 鈥淗ow was patrol?鈥 Thomas asked in a whisper.聽
Alastair hummed and sank into Thomas鈥 lap, looping an arm around his shoulder and resting a hand at the base of his neck. 鈥淣othing to report. Thought you鈥檇 be in bed by the time I got back.鈥
It wasn鈥檛 quite a question, but Thomas answered anyway: 鈥淚 wanted to see you as soon as you came home.鈥
Alastair couldn鈥檛 help but smile and press a kiss to Thomas鈥 forehead. As he pulled away, his eyes caught on the small spattering of freckles that dusted Thomas鈥 cheeks and nose. He grinned. 鈥淗ave I ever told you,鈥 he whispered, 鈥渉ow much I love your freckles?鈥
Thomas immediately looked taken back, only managing to blush and stammer out, 鈥淣-no, I, er, don鈥檛 think you have,鈥 before Alastair leaned forward and pressed his lips to a cluster of them on his nose.
鈥淲ell, shame on me, then,鈥 Alastair said, kissing Thomas鈥 cheek once, twice, 鈥渇or not telling you sooner.鈥
Thomas huffed a laugh and his breath was warm against Alastair鈥檚 face. They each leaned forward at the same time, lips colliding awkwardly in a slow, sweet kiss. Alastair smiled into it, reveling in the feeling of being here with Thomas, being able to lean into his touch and forget momentarily about the aches and bruises of their lives鈥攁nd the ones ghosting Alastair鈥檚 abdomen, which unfortunately made their presence known at Thomas鈥 touch.
鈥淭hought you said there was nothing to report,鈥 Thomas said when Alastair grimaced and lifted the hem of his shirt to reveal reddish-purple stained skin.
鈥淚 might鈥檝e been tackled to the ground by Kamala to avoid a Shax demon and landed badly,鈥 he admitted, 鈥渂ut that was the worst of it, I swear. I used an iratze and everything.鈥
鈥淵ou should rest,鈥 Thomas said immediately. 鈥淚t鈥檚 only six-thirty,鈥 he added with a glance at the clock. 鈥淕o to bed now and I鈥檒l have breakfast ready by nine.鈥
Alastair shook his head but Thomas was already rising, gathering him in his arms and carrying him through their flat to their shared room. Before Alastair could protest, he was being lowered onto the bed. Thomas untangled their limbs and started to pull away but Alastair caught a fistful of his shirt. 鈥淥nly if you stay here.鈥澛
Though Thomas looked at him with exasperation, Alastair could tell he was secretly pleased as he sank onto the bed beside him and turned so they were facing each other.
The full weight of the night settled on Alastair. He reached out and found Thomas鈥 hands waiting to pull him closer. He felt the deep warmth of sleep pulling his eyes shut, but before he could drop out entirely, he leaned forward and pressed one last kiss to the freckles on Thomas鈥 cheek. 鈥淏eautiful.鈥

i like to think that when the tlh gang discover how everything was done by tatiana and belial, and how grace was manipulated into doing shady and bad stuff, cordelia will be the first that attempt to punch tatiana in the face.
cordelia will be angry and upset about what grace did, and she would forgive her in her own time but i think she will understand the bigger picture? about how grace was a child who was manipulated through guilt and fear and she grow up not having a choice

what happens when someone breaks the heartbreaker鈥檚 heart?

We all know about the Carstairs own the Herondales thing! And I believe CC said we鈥檒l learn why in TLH.
I think the whole thing has to deal with Cordelia and James and the power Lilith has over Cordelia. As we know Cordelia has sworn to Lilith as Cordelia Herondale not Cordelia Carstairs. Many have said if they get a divorce, it will break Lilith鈥檚 power over Cordelia. I don鈥檛 believe that. Cordelia is legally an Herondale but doesn鈥檛 feel like one. She definitely associates with the Carstairs name more because it鈥檚 a fake marriage and she believes James doesn鈥檛 love her so why should she feel like an Herondale. There is no point of her feeling that way since it鈥檚 only for a year. So, divorcing won鈥檛 change Lilith鈥檚 power over her. I believe James will be the main reason Cordelia will no longer to be锟 tethered to Lilith. He鈥檒l break Lilith鈥檚 power over her. Hence the whole Carstairs own the Herondales. They keep it a secret. Like a family secret but it鈥檚 no longer known since Emma doesn鈥檛 know why the Carstairs own the Herondales. Jem still holds onto that 鈥渂elief.鈥 Anyway, if the Clave knew Cordelia swore to Lilith (even though she had no idea who it was) the whole Carstairs family probably would of outcasted. Erase the Carstairs completely. Not even one record of them left. This is my theory on why the Carstairs own the Herondales.

Ok, so I鈥檓 tagging @livia-dovehallow and @imherongraystairstrash in this because I know this headcanon is one you both might be interested in.
So when the TLH gang are much younger, and Gabriel and Cecily at least, still live in the Institute, with Anna and Kit, someone makes fun of James because of his eyes and Kit because he鈥檚 off in his own world, thinking deep thoughts like he normally does, and Anna overheard this, so she goes after the person who was making fun of them, and pretty much goes wild, kicking, hitting, biting and scratching.
Because they鈥檙e her boys and no one is allowed to hurt them, and her job is to be a good older sister/cousin and protect them.
