Like seriously, The Mortal Instruments became a movie… and yea it didn’t do that great… but we have another chance! Another chance for the stories we all love and cherish to become a TV show and new actors and actresses + endless possibilities to tell the story! (The Infernal Devices included). Look at how the all other wonderful book series we love get judged upon by its sucky movie and never get picked up again. *COUGH* PERCY JACKSON *COUGH*
Instead of being all huffy and puffy of how “Dominic Sherwood” isn’t how you pictured Jace (*cough* but i beg to differ. I think he’s GREAT), have some hope and optimism for the show. Nothing will be perfect but it will be a lot better, and that’s a start. Furthermore, we don’t even need to wait for a network to pick them up after a pilot! It’s already been confirmed that it will be on ABC Family!! Which is pretty awesome! (Delirium and The Selection series was opted for a TV show but after they filmed the pilot, no network picked them up I believe, or it couldn’t fit in their schedules)
Yea, you probably didn’t think ABC Family would pick the show up, but it’s a popular channel with successful shows (Ex: PLL, which in fact, is also a book series).
Also, it’s important to mention that McG, the director of this show and of course, the beloved Cassandra Clare are working super dee-duper hard on this. They want this to succeed as much as we do. So, all we can do is respect their hard work and be grateful for putting the characters we love so much on screen so that we can fangirl over them and cry. x_X
THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT TIME IN THE TMI/TID FANDOM. BE GRATEFUL ABOUT IT. Maybe you did like the movie, and that’s totally okay, but this is a new beginning, a brand new way to tell Cassandra’s stories, and it will be beautiful. Yes, I still have maximum respect for the past actors but I still can’t wait for more people to be cast, I swear to god I will pee in my pants. I have unconditional love for these books and I just want them to become the next biggest thing.
When I tell the people around me that I’m super excited, (TMI fans/ and non TMI fans included), they tell me there’s no way it will be successful and I’m getting excited over “nothing.” I’M SORRY EXCUSE ME WHAT NO. I am excited regardless, and just please have hope in the new TV series! (wow this was really long)
