I can’t believe that we got a biracial relationship between a bisexual man and another man…and then a biracial lesbian couple with a bisexual woman….and then a poly relationship with a Latina woman and two bi men…and a romance between a trans woman and a man…and now a confirmed romance between an autistic boy and another bisexual boy…I’m just…feeling so…blessed rn

Friendly reminder

That Gwyn ap Nudd, a hundred year-old faerie, Leader of the Wild Hunt, has a crush on Diana Wrayburn.

  • What she says: Lord of Shadows was a great book and you should really read it
  • What she means: thiS BOOK TORE OUT MY FUCKING SOUL AND I FUCKING HATE IT BUT AT THE SAME TIME I FUCKING LOVED IT. Emma and Jules are so cute but they're also just a big hot mess of emotions and angst and tbh they're ETERNALLY SCREWED. I love Diana and Diana and Gwyn are my actual fave but don't forget about Kitty because oH MY FUCKING GOd it's canon and they are so cute. Not to mention that Mark, Cristina, and Kieran will eventually have a threesome. I foresee it in the future. ALSO DID I MENTION THAT MALEC TAKING CARE OF THEIR KIDS IS THE CUTEST? Emma and Julian had sex again (shocker) and it was rlly cute and hot n heavy. Julian Blackthorn is actually my daddy. I s2g if those two parabatai don't chill Emma's gonna get fucking preggers and then things can only get worse from there. Jaime and Diego (especially Jaime) are sneaky, slimy motherfuckers and I don't really like them. no wait scratch that. I HATE JAIME BECAUSE HE'S TAKING ADVANTAGE OF DRU BUt Diego isn't that bad anymore but still.
  • ALSO I MISS ROBERT LIGHTWOOD A LOT MORE THAN I THOUGHT I WOULD BECAUSE HE WAS GOING TO HELP EMMA AND JULES AND PLUS ALEC SAW HIM DIE AND I CAN'T I JUST CANT OMFG. AND THEN LIVVY. LIVVY MY BABY OH MY GOOOOOODDDDDDD. LIVVYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY. I ACTUALLY CRIED MYSELF TO SLEEP THAT NIGHT WHEN I FINISHED LORD OF SHADOWS. GOD DAMN JUST SOMEONE PLEASE GIVE THE BLACKTHORNS A BREAK OKAY BYE.

How TDA characters text

  • Julian: Doesn't see the point of emojis, uses proper grammar and punctuation whilst texting everyone.

  • Mark: Constntly texts typos adn it pisssrs off EVRYONE.
  • Kieran: doesn't use capital letters or punctuation he just types long massive sentences with no breaks whatsoever

  • Jaime: Uses punctuation,,,, several times!!! For emphasis???

Lord of Shadows: Thoughts and Theories

This book broke my heart, Everything was fine then it went to shit, then it was fine again and then it went to shit again, and then everything was fine, and I thought things were going to turn out really well, then everything went to ABSOLUTE SHIT. Iโ€™d give this book 5/5, because it was so jam-packed with so much action and different character and plot twists, whereas Lady Midnight was basically the Emma and Jules show.

I felt that Lady Midnight, though it was a good Book, wasnโ€™t Cassie Clareโ€™s best work. The first half failed to really draw me in, and I had to push to really get into the book. It was also just constant Emma and Jules, though I understand she was setting the scene and setting up their relationship, it just got a bit dull. The whole book was kind of a โ€˜mehโ€™, but with Lord of Shadows, it was fast-paced right off the bat, with loads of plots and different POVโ€™s and characters drawing me completely into the book. This book, in my opinion, was a huge jump from LM, in terms of success for me, personally.

I was getting a lot of asks on why I spoil myself for things, the reason is a) I canโ€™t help it, and b) when something major happens in a book that I wasnโ€™t expecting, I get really hyped up for a few days and canโ€™t really concentrate on anything else. Sounds kinda weird, but spoiling myself works. Except some people gave me fake spoilers, soโ€ฆ

Anyway Iโ€™ve tried to organise my thoughts into sections, but itโ€™s all a bit all over the place, here are my thoughts and theories!

Keep reading

most likely deaths in queen of air and darkness, ranked

impossible (for now)
magnus bane
kit herondale
ty blackthorn
jaime rosales 
dru blackthorn 

unlikely
helen blackthorn
aline penhallow - these two already suffered so much already, and we are finally able to get to know them better in qooad. 
octavian blackthorn - since tavvy escaped near death in lady midnight, i doubt he will be at that much risk again. 
cristina rosales 
mark blackthorn 
diana wraybrun - just a hunch! these three deaths seem very unlikely.
ragnor fell - that is, if he’s actually shade. 
tessa, jem, isabelle, simon, jace, alec

neutral
emma carstairs 
catarina loss
zara dearborn -
though it’s very possible she’ll die in the future, i don’t think it will happen in queen of air and darkness. her dad may though! 
gwyn ap nudd

likely
julian blackthorn
clary fairchild 
kieran 
diego rosales -
it’s very probably these two will sacrifice themselves for mark or cristina, since they’re still really guilty about their actions.
annabel blackthorn - i really don’t see her living by the end of qooad.

note: these are just my personal predictions! feel free to agree, disagree, add on more theories, etc. I would love to hear them!
