Quotes and Cherries
~ โ€œCelaena walked and walked, until she found herself by the tree-lined shore of a lake, glaringly bright in the midday sun. She figured it was as good a spot as any as she crumpled to the mossy bank, as her arms wrapped tight around herself and she bowed over her knees. There was nothing that could be done to fix her. And she was...she was... A whimpering noise came out of her, lips trembling to hard she had to clamp down to keep the sound inside. -- She vaguely felt the light shifting on the lake. Vaguely felt the sighing wind, warm as it brushed against her damp cheeks. And heard, so soft it was as if she dreamed it, a woman's voice whispering, Why are you crying, Fireheart?... Because I am lost, she whispered onto the earth. And I do not know the way.โ€ โ€• Sarah J. Maas, Heir of Fire ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ ~ โ€œEven when this world is a forgotten whisper of dust between the stars, I will always love you.โ€ โ€• Sarah J. Maas, Empire of Storms ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œWhat does that mean? he demanded. She smiled sadly. You'll figure it out. And when you do... She shook her head, knowing she shouldn't say it, but doing it anyway. When you do, I want you to remember that it wouldn't have made any difference to me. It's never made any difference to me when it came to you. Iโ€™d still pick you. Iโ€™ll always pick you.โ€ โ€• Sarah J. Maas, Crown of Midnight ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ ~โ€œOnly promise me one thing, if I do go, give us a happy ending, will you? In your book?โ€ โ€œI donโ€™t believe in endingsโ€ โ€• Cassandra Clare, Chain of Iron ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ ~โ€œIf this were The Beautiful Cordelia, a mad but handsome duke would come staggering across the heath, but nothing ever happened as it did in books.โ€ โ€• Cassandra Clare, Chain of Iron ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ ~โ€œOnly the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry.โ€ โ€• Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ ~โ€œAh,โ€ said a voice from the doorway, โ€œhaving your annual โ€˜everyone thinks Will is a lunaticโ€™ meeting, are you? โ€œItโ€™s biannual,โ€ said Jem. โ€œAnd no, this is not that meeting.โ€ โ€• Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ ~โ€œAnyone who says women are weak is afraid they're too strong.โ€ โ€• Cassandra Clare, Ghosts of the Shadow Market ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ ~โ€œAnd there in front of her was Julian, his eyes and ears closed to anything but Livvy, her body cradled against his. She seemed a drift of fragile ash or snow, something impermanent that had blown into his arms accidentally: the petal of a faerie flower, the white feather of an angel's wing. The dream of a little girl, the memory of a sister reaching up her arms: Julian, Julian, carry me.โ€ โ€• Cassandra Clare, Lord of Shadows๐Ÿ˜ฅ ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œBut death was her curse and her gift, and death had been her good friend these long, long years.โ€ โ€• Sarah J. Maas, Crown of Midnight ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œIt is not such a hard thing, is it - to die for your friends.โ€ โ€• Sarah J. Maas, Empire of Storms ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œShe had lied to him. She had wanted to save lives, yes. But she had gone out there with no intention of saving her own.โ€ โ€• Sarah J. Maas, Heir of Fire ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œBefore I die, I want the person Iโ€™m meant to be and have that be enough.โ€ โ€• Jennifer Niven, All the Bright Places ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œYou have to live your life like youโ€™ll never be sorry. Itโ€™s easier just to do the right thing from the start so thereโ€™s nothing to apologize for.โ€ โ€• Jennifer Niven, All the Bright Places ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œBy the time weโ€™re done, their guests have gathered outside to see the boy who must have flowers to give to the girl he loves.โ€ โ€• Jennifer Niven, All the Bright Places ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œI said, I prefer the ocean when it's gray. Or not really gray. A pale, in-between color. It reminds me of waiting for something good to happen.โ€ โ€• Lauren Oliver, Delirium ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œSometimes I feel like if you just watch things, just sit still and let the world exist in front of you - sometimes I swear that just for a second time freezes and the world pauses in its tilt. Just for a second. And if you somehow found a way to live in that second, then you would live forever.โ€ โ€• Lauren Oliver, Pandemonium ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œThat is the rule of the Wilds: You must be bigger and stronger and tougher. You must hurt or be hurt.โ€ โ€• Lauren Oliver, Requiem ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œI run for I don't know how long. Hours, maybe, or days. Alex told me to run. So I run. You have to understand. I am no one special. I am just a single girl. I am five feet two inches tall and I am in-between in every way. But I have a secret. You can build walls all the way to the sky and I will find a way to fly above them. You can try to pin me down with a hundred thousand arms, but I will find a way to resist. And there are many of us out there, more than you think. People who refuse to stop believing. People who refuse to come to earth. People who love in a world without walls, people who love into hate, into refusal, against hope,and without fear. I love you. Remember. They cannot take it.โ€ โ€• Lauren Oliver, Delirium ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œOne of the strangest things about life is that it will chug on, blind and oblivious, even as your private world - your little carved-out sphere - is twisting and morphing, even breaking apart. One day you have parents; the next day you're an orphan. One day you have a place and a path. The next day you're lost in the wilderness. And still the sun rises and clouds mass and drift and people shop for groceries and toilets flush and blinds go up and down. That's when you realize that most of it - life, the relentless mechanism of existing - isn't about you. It doesn't include you at all. It will thrust onward even after you've jumped the edge. Even after you're dead.โ€ โ€• Lauren Oliver, Delirium ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œNow I'd rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years smothered by a lie.โ€ โ€• Lauren Oliver, Delirium ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œHis eyes are blazing with light, more light than all the lights in every city in the whole world, more light than we could ever invent if we had ten thousand billion years.โ€ โ€• Lauren Oliver, Delirium

Looking back on the names of all Cassie's series, I think it's obvious as to why. The Infernal Devices focused on what the devices where, the Mortal Instruments focused on the aforementioned mortal instruments, we know what the Eldest Curses are, and we know what makes up the The Dark Artifices, but what makes me so interested is The Last Hours, we don't know what these are. My theory is that the whole trilogy happens because of what happened in the last hours of Jesse's life. So far, I think that there is a long game over this for Tatiana and Belial, with Grace and the bracelet and James, and Belial's anchor in Jesse. I definitely think that what happened in the last hours of Jesse's life will become more apparent in Chain of Thorns. What are other people's theories?

Letโ€™s do some maths
For example:
4 + 2 = 6
3 + 7 = 10
1 dead blackthorn sibling + 1 live blackthorn sibling + 1 herondale = necromancy

Blindness and Sight in TLH
Hello everyone!!! As you know, I often like to analyze things which lead to speculations. The irony of this speculation is that it came to me when I was talking to a friend about my โ€œanti-birthdayโ€ (your anti-birthday is precisely six months after your birthday). My anti-birthday is on December 13th, which is Saint Lucieโ€™s day, who is also the name of one of our beloved characters in TLH. This theory will not only tackle Lucieโ€™s repercussions after she brought Jesseโ€™s soul back into his body, but also other meanings of the word blind and sight in regards to James and Cordelia and Grace.
The name Lucie means light, and weโ€™ve been told and shown several times how she is bubbly, positive, sunny, and generally has this radiant aura about her and she seems to brighten other peopleโ€™s lives with her energy. But we are also aware that Lucie is often overlooked despite being so lively, and she has also problems of her own which she didnโ€™t tell anyone of her family. These issues also include finding out that she has a power like her brother James. Her power is tied to the darkness and to death, which is an opposite motif to light and life, which are the superficial traits of our Lucie.ย 
She canโ€™t just see the ghosts, she can also control the dead, and this power is called mediumship. Lucie is a medium figure, she can come into contact with ghosts, but unlike James and Will, she can do it literally, because she has inherited this skill from her demon grandfather Belial.ย 
Most of COG and then COI, weโ€™ve seen how Lucie was pictured as the little girl. Not only because of her height. Along with Christopher, Lucie is the youngest character of the group, and at times it almost seems like the others treat her like a child, when she is mature compared to some of the other characters. And they also ignore her (as they also ignore Kit).
Lucie is connected to spirits, hence even her relationship with Jesse, who was himself a spirit, is very spiritual and encompasses that kind of romantic love that transcends time - or, in this case, physicality, since they can barely touch. Lucie then has what weโ€™d call the โ€œsightโ€, which is the ability to see things other people canโ€™t see. In this case, ghosts. Itโ€™s possible she can also see inside their minds, just like she did with Jesse right before she put his soul back into his body. They also say that the eyes are the window of the soul, so when Lucie looked inside Jesse, she also saw his memories from a privileged window.ย ย 
I mentioned Saint Lucie, did I? Itโ€™s time I explain this theory to you. For those who are not religious nor are Catholic (not only Roman Catholic believe in saints), Saint Lucie is on December 13, which is close to Winter solstice. We know that COI was set in Winter and it was almost Christmas. Weird connection, right? This means that Jesseโ€™s soul was brought back around that time. The Lucie Iโ€™m referring to is a specific Saint Lucie, from Syracuse in Italy. She was a martyr of noble origins whose throat was cut by a sword, because she didnโ€™t want to get married to her betrothed and instead gave her wealth to poor people. Another legend narrates that Lucieโ€™s eyes were removed, making her blind. She is, in fact, according to Christianity, the protector of blind people but also authors. All of this to say that it is possible - at least, Iโ€™m speculating based on the associations Iโ€™m making - that one of the repercussions of Lucie bringing back Jesseโ€™s soul into his body may be blindness or temporary blindness. We also become blind if we stare at a source of light for too long.
I apologize in advance for this theory, but there are signs that may hint to this. The name Lucie is one of them. Like I said, Lucie embeds both light (in her first name but also in her being a shadowhunter, therefore โ€œangelicโ€) and dark (in her power, but also in her being also part โ€œdemon/warlockโ€). Which means that one of the repercussions for bringing dead = darkness to life = light is a temporary loss of light and sight in herself. This could also not go literal. I mean, Lucie could simply โ€œgo darkโ€ and โ€œlose her lightโ€ like for example Julian did in TDA, but wouldnโ€™t it be too predictable? The reason why I believe Lucie may suffer the loss of her sight is also because we have other types of blindness in TLH. But wait a second.ย 
Let me explain first. I said that Lucie and Jesse are a spiritual couple, with a pure and innocent love, which makes them appear very connected to each other that they donโ€™t need the physicality to validate their love. They already trust each other. They know that they love each other, and thatโ€™s what matters to them. The quality not the quantity of the time they spend together. So one of their obstacles could be that now that Jesse is alive and in his body and they can finally touch and see each other properly like theyโ€™d dreamed (touch in general, Iโ€™m not talking about something romantic or sexual here),ย  itโ€™s Lucie who loses something physical here. Up until the end of Chain of Iron, it was Jesse who lacked physicality because he was a ghost. Now it could be Lucie who lacks her light and canโ€™t even see ghosts, just hear them. Or this will not play out with actual blindness, but weโ€™ll see Lucie in a comatose status or lost in the pit of darkness from where she saved Jesseโ€™s soul, and thanks to the connection Jesseโ€™s last breath may have with James, he could be able to reach out to her and bring her back (just like Cordelia is Jamesโ€™ light and is able to reach out to him when heโ€™s in the shadow realm). So, bottom line, Lucie may become blind (temporary) indirectly because of Jesse and the act she pulled to bring him back.ย 
I mentioned James and Cordelia because the theme of blindness concerns them too, but in different ways. Where Lucie and Jesse are not blind on their feelings and, on the other hand, embrace them completely when they come, James is under the effect of the gracelet and Cordelia, despite loving James, thinks itโ€™s a one-sided love thus she doesnโ€™t tell him how she feels. By being under the effect of the gracelet, it was like James was blind. He saw Cordelia, felt his longing for her, but there was something blinding in his sight which didnโ€™t let him be honest with the person he loved. We are aware that without the gracelet, James would have already confessed to Cordelia. I looked for the term blind both in Chain of Gold and Chain of Iron, and guess what? In COG, most of the terms blind, blindness, blindly and so on, were referred to James. There is also a specific line that Jem tells James about him being a star who canโ€™t be put out, along with his family, and whoever doesnโ€™t see it is blind. I just love this metaphor of the Herondale family being the light in Jemโ€™s darkness and muteness (which may be another thing pointing to Lucie becoming temporarily blind, although Jem is not mute per se, since he can talk telepathically - but itโ€™s still a traumatic disability). In Greek mythology, Tiresia was a liminal figure like Lucie and they were also blind and could see the underworld.
The cause of James' blindness to his feelings for Cordelia was Grace.ย 
Little parenthesis on Grace: in COI we find out she was blindfolded when she received her power, which I think it doesnโ€™t just add more material to this analysis, but it also means a few things. She was given a power she didnโ€™t want without her consent, because she was taken there blindfolded, blind. She couldnโ€™t say she didnโ€™t want it, because she had been also manipulated and abused by Tatiana. Graceโ€™s lack of consent doesnโ€™t just connect with her power taking away peopleโ€™s feelings as well. It also links to Jesseโ€™s body used by Belial without his consent. Jesse was also blindfolded when he woke up after Lucie brought his soul back. Covering the eyes of dead people was a habit that comes from the past. He tears the blindfold away and the first thing he sees is Lucie fainting, her world โ€œblurring at the edgesโ€ before everything gets dark.ย 
When I looked up for the same words in COI, Cordelia was the one linked to blind, blindness et similar. She wasnโ€™t just wondering why she had been so blind about her fatherโ€™s condition, and about James and his feelings, but also about what Lilith did to her. Cordelia had been deceived, and in her case, blindness is linked to the fact of not noticing the signs that Wayland wasnโ€™t Wayland but Lilith. And Lilith is the mother of all warlocks, and itโ€™s yet another link to James and Lucieโ€™s heritage and being torn between serving the shadowhunters with a sword pledged to a demon. This also plays in Jesse being a shadowhunter but having Belialโ€™s demonic anchor inside of him.ย 
James and Cordeliaโ€™s blindness was played on the feelingsโ€™ side. His feelings were obscured by the gracelet and Belial and Tatianaโ€™s wrath, and Cordeliaโ€™s heroic feelings were obscured by Lilithโ€™s wrath against Jamesโ€™ grandfather. Their blindness was not literal, and as we saw, their feelings for each other were too strong that they shattered the enchantment on the gracelet. Both of them found out that they had been blind by the end of COI. Grace told James the truth, but Cordelia misinterpreted what she saw (blindness again! Miscommunication, which is also a lack of insight into something). Cordelia, already feeling burdened by Cortanaโ€™s corruption, couldnโ€™t help but run away to the alternate reality which was Paris. In COT, Cordelia and James will finally confess their feelings for each other.
Blindness may play out differently for Lucie and Jesse. Since their feelings werenโ€™t blurred by any enchantment, they were able to confess to each other and live their love, albeit for a short period of time. Since Jordeliaโ€™s blindness (and subsequent miscommunication, which Blackdale didnโ€™t have because they were the only ones who talked to each other) was metaphorical, spiritual, in opposition, Blackdaleโ€™s blindness could be physically debilitating. So like Grace voluntarily provoked Jamesโ€™ metaphorical blindness and masked his real feelings for Cordelia, Jesse could have involuntarily provoked Lucieโ€™s literal blindness.ย 
I canโ€™t stop thinking about the fact that some of the things that also happened to James could also reflect on Lucie but play out in a different way for her. Like when Grace wants James to run away with her to Gretna Green and get married. James doesnโ€™t want to leave the shadowhunters. Not for Grace, even if he believes he likes her. This could play out for Lucie and Jesse. They might be exiled, or Lucie could decide to leave the shadowhunters and Jesse could follow her, and they become mundanes.ย 
Thatโ€™s it! Hope you liked my analysis and speculation. I like to hear your opinion about it, so feel free to write to me in my ask box to talk about it, if you want.

Chain of Iron Excerpt - Grace & Jesse
โ€œLong ago,โ€ he said in a low voice, โ€œwhen Grace first came to us, I used to brush her hair out at night. My mother had no interest in doing it, and otherwise it would tangle and snarl, and Grace would cry.โ€
I have no idea why, but this line - oh my God it made me cry.

Quick updates!
My Jesse x Lightwood cousins fic is almost done (I PROMISE! It got longer than I intended it to be, and I barely have free time to work on it everyday, but itโ€™s coming!)
I have more three WIPs and one of them will be posted on AO3, hopefully, tomorrow or Saturday and shared here (I wrote the draft a few months ago)
And Iโ€™ll fix a post with the links to all my fics so far, if any of you are interested (reblogs, kudos and comments (AO3) are always appreciated. It helps content creators to gain more visibility and more people to see our work)
Thank you and stay safe, loves ๐Ÿ’–

I feel like Jesseโ€™s character gets treated unfairly compared to the others. I know he was like the main villain or whatever but honestly thereโ€™s barely any scenes with him. Every character has something that they enjoy doing. Like for Lucie itโ€™s her writing, for Christopher itโ€™s science etc.. But for Jesse, Cassie just makes his character revolve around his death and Lucie. We know heโ€™s supposed to be a pianist, and I hope thatโ€™s still true but I feel like itโ€™s not. I just donโ€™t understand why Cassie would leave that out? I love Jesse a lot and I was so excited to see more of him but I still feel like we only touched on his character even after choi. This is more of a rant than an ask Iโ€™m sorry ๐Ÿ˜ญ But why do you think she left that out? Iโ€™m pretty sure she said a couple times that Jesse was a I just ?? Iโ€™m ? confused ?? She seems to be leaving out a lot about Jesse and Lucie, like the scrawling initials? Idk Iโ€™m pretty upset about this
Tumblr media
I get you and share your feeling! I really thought ChOI would be a Lucie, Jesse and Grace book. It had everything to be. I feel like CC let him out of most ChOG and ChOI just because he was a ghost (HOW. DARE. SHE. I wanted to see my boy' shenanigans in the spiritual world, like haunting the Prime Minister) Hopefully, we'll get more of him and his POV in ChOT. It's Chain of Thorns, after all. Our boy deserves more
She did let that out! She also said that in modern days one could still hear the sound of a piano in Blackthorn Manor *sobbing* I think she said that while on the beginning of the writing process of TLH, before or after TDA came out? Not sure. Itโ€™d be nice if Cassie touched that subject on ChOT, even if briefly. Perhaps during a flashback? Or during a conversation between Jesse and Lucie.
WE HAVE TO GET THAT SCENE BECAUSE OMFG ASKSDUHAIDHAIDAHDKAJDKSD maybe we'll finally see it in ChOT *fingers crossed*
P.S.: thatโ€™s totally fine! come rant as much as you want! Ask or rant, I love to talk with all of you! ๐Ÿ’–โ˜€๏ธโœจ๐ŸŒบ
P.S. 2: sorry I took so long to answer. College is kicking me

I love Lucieโ€™s first time seeing Jesse after all of those years have passed when he rescued her when she was younger. Sheโ€™s asking him why he hadnโ€™t shared who he was and heโ€™s explaining why, and then heโ€™s interrupted;
โ€œAnd besides...โ€
Anyone else wondering what Jesse was going to say to Lucie here?
Also canโ€™t help but point out how heโ€™s already looking out for her and trying to keep her safe here when he realises something is wrong.

Ok because I'm not sure I ever officialy posted this or just talked with people so
My two ideas for TLH short stories collection:
The Beautiful Cordelia as read to Mina by Tessa. First of all we would weep wouldn't we. It's structured kind of like Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy - each story starts with Tessa reading an excerpt from The Beautiful Cordelia, aka a sort of introduction, and then we get to the actual story. TBC introduction is obviously hilariously inaccurate to the real events, what with all the Cruel Princes etc., but in the end it's just some TLH gang shenanigans, from their own POVs - some demon problems, some parties and mysteries and important life moments, maybe some fun trips.
Thomastair/Jordelia travel adventures, HEAR ME OUT. Some of it is Thomastair (most i'd say, but let's keep it realistic), some Jordelia, maybe once or twice they went together. They have adventures while travelling, but there's also moments in between, when they're back in London, and we get some domestic friends/family scenes + updates on the characters that don't travel with them.
Someone help me pitch this to CC because otherwise I'd have to write it myself and it's a lot of work
