It's kind of funny how on Tumblr we're writing whole essays on why you should be patient and wait for content you want from SoBH while the Twitter crowd launches into a rant about how they aren't getting the content they want and how this whole thing is a disappointment.
That Tatiana stuff is actually very interesting. We're learning more about her and the pre-TID parts, which is something that we should probably keep an eye on. And if Emma is lucky she might find a secret journal filled with plans for what's going down in Chain of Thorns . . .
If I know TSC, and I do, this is going to come back and bitch slap us at some point. So maybe these journal entires aren't entirely boring.

Though he is not one of the tedious Blackthorns from the Cornwall Institute
It is possible that Jules, Ty, Livvy and all the other siblings are infact descendants from those "tedious Blackthorns" and not Lucie and Jesse's. This might explain why they cannot see ghosts because they dont have the herondale blood-

let me set the scene for you.
imagine youre in high school again. someone brings up a rumour about the leader of your country, whatever that position is called for you. you laugh, maybe tell a friend, and you move on bc thats literally what 15 year olds in society do, you make fun of removed rich priveleged politicians and move on. and then 5 years later, as you try to heal from your traumatic past and apologize, this group of kids not only refuse to forgive but actually actively antagonize you, not over you being a dick and telling the kid of the leader, but just because you, A TEENAGER IN SCHOOL, TALKED ABOUT A RUMOUR THAT EVERY OTHER PERSON IN YOUR SOCIETY WAS TALKING ABOUT.
AND YET SOME PEOPLE EXPECT ME TO GIVE A FLYING FUCK THAT ALASTAIR SPREAD THE RUMOUR?????????????
like imagine you make a joke about donald trump cheating on his wife and 5 years later barron trumps cousin threatens to throw you in the mississippi river this is genuinely whats happening in this series. there is a genuine plot point centering on making a traumatized bullied child a villain for SPREADING A RUMOUR ABOUT FUCKING POLITICIANS IN SCHOOL THAT HE DIDNT EVEN START AM I GETTING MY POINT ACROSS HERE?
remember in shadowhunter society, charlotte and gideon and co. are all from old rich families who’ve held extensive power for years, they control a LOT of their society and keep to themselves, i wouldnt be surprised if there are like,,, middle and lower class equivalent shadowhunters who HATE these families. politicians get slandered all the time charlotte and gideon aren’t special or exempt its ridiculous to think that they wouldnt be talked about and theres no special reason why alastair wouldnt have been one of EVERYONE spreading the rumour, he doesnt know these people why should i expect him to care
yes alastair was an asshole for telling matthew the way he did (even if it was in response to matthew telling him his hair is ugly and his family hates him, alastair had his reasons to say it, but it was still cruel and we dont make excuses here, both boys were in the wrong) but the thieves are mad at alastair for spreading the rumour. hell they dont even know he was the one who told matthew, theyre just that mad over him saying dumb shit. like sweeties i promise you, your parent’s careers arent in jeopardy bc a STUDENT talked about a rumour in school literally no one else cares, it’s a problem when people in power catch wind of rumours like this.
we only care about the rumour because we know these people personally. the only shadowhunter books to NOT mock government figures are these ones, because as a reader we are in the government system, we read through the pov of people whose families make up the clave. you know DAMN WELL if these books were from alastairs point of view with no TID and we went back to viewing the clave as cold and uncaring we’d be praising him for shitting on the government, like we have with every other main character. its normal for rumours to be spread about government figures, its normal for teenagers to gossip about things that at the end of the day are harmless to them, i know i dont lose any sleep worrying if my government officials are sad about the gossip that surrounds them, its to be expected in that position.
in conclusion i dont care about the rumour, alastair didnt personally slight charlotte or gideon, spreading rumours about random leader is normal and the one actually mean thing he did... well i’ve forgiven other characters for doing and saying a lot worse (looking at you lightwood “most hated men in london” brothers and will “tessa i only like you for your body” herondale)

Fandom: LUCIE AND JESSE ARE ENDGAME BECAUSE THE FAMILY TREE CONFIRMED THEY GET MARRIED
Cassie: *uploads a post where she says the family tree is misleading aka. fake*
Fandom: ok but there are no more male Blackthorns, its just Jesse! So that means the current Blackthorns come from Jesse and Lucie!
Cassie: *answers an ask confirming that there are indeed more Blackthorns*
Fandom:... maybe she means Rupert's parents, so there's still hope
Cassie: *uploads new chapter of SOBH that confirms there's another blackthorn family living in Cornwall meaning that Julian and the rest might be their descendants and not blackdale's'*

@idrisnnet 'S HALLOWEEN EVENT: WEEK 3 DAY 3: TSC CHARACTERS AS TAROT CARDS
Character in focus : Cristina Rosales
Tarot card : The Star (Major Arcana)
UPRIGHT: Hope, faith, purpose, renewal, spirituality
REVERSED: Lack of faith, despair, self-trust, disconnection
'Grief does not make us weak,' Cristina said firmly. 'It makes us human. How could you comfort Dru, or Ty, or Jules, if you didn't know what they missed about her? Sympathy is common. Knowing the exact shape of the hole someone's loss leaves in your heart is rare.'
credits to shay @thewraitth for most of the style <3

To all the people that hate Jace Lightwood-Herondale for whatever unfathomable reason:
Ok so I know you exist because I’ve seen people post about hating Jace. But Jace is actually such an important character, and I don’t mean because he’s one of the main characters in TMI. Jace grew up being abused by Valentine - mentally and physically. He grew up being told that “to love is to destroy” so he thought he’d never find love. His pet falcon was killed by Valentine to teach him that lesson. His fingers were snapped and iratzed to “help” him learn piano. Even in COLS Sebastian says “Valentine beat Jace bloody for the first ten years of his life”. Jace is an abuse survivor and proof that life can be better even after the abuse stops. He shows abuse survivors that things can get better and you can get the life you deserve.
edit: thank you to @beclynn-herondale for pointing out that trauma doesn’t always make people kind and sometimes makes them guarded and untrusting (which we see with Jace a lot, especially in the beginning). Also that some survivors use anger as a response to trauma and it helps them to handle situations - even if it’s not the best way. He shows us that our reactions can be normal and coping is sometimes all that matters.

“I think sometimes it's too hard to believe in yourself. You just do the things you're not sure you can do. You just act, in spite of not being certain. I don't believe I can change the world--it sounds stupid to even talk about it--but I'm going to try.”
Belated Happy Birthday to my favourite character ❤

I would be very interested in taking Brooding in Battle and Thule: Not Even Once, I have a feeling they are extremely informative.
But also Sharpening Your Drawing Pencils and Other Impromptu Weaponry would be cool, don't you think?
Actually let me take all the classes. It would be anyway more fun than what I am getting right now
