shadow. priest. anduin. boi walkin' around in the Stormwind gardens or somethin with his dad and a SUDDEN THREAT appears. before varian can do anything, anduin pulls a [Shadow word: pain] and casts it twice before finishing off with [DEATH] and all the while his eyes are glowing and he has a spooky black aura and long story short Varian is both proud and terrified of his son's priestly power. (this is really just a fanfic idea aha im sorry)
Something's been bothering me: The Lord of Shadows ended up being a title of the Unseelie King, but the original title of the second book was Prince of Shadows. If the Lord of Shadows always was the Unseelie King in Cassie's mind, then why would the first title even occur to her? Can it be that the Lord of Shadows had originally been someone else, then she changed it when she made him the King? Or maybe the King is a red herring, and she changed the title so it wouldn't be too obvious?
Ahh, to get inside of the head of Cassandra Clare? Good
luck. I love to postulate theories and come up with my own scenarios of how
everything will work out—and I tried to do that before Lord of Shadows came out,
and I think I was about 90% wrong. I will say that she has three whole series
that she hasn’t even written along with Queen of Air and Darkness. I can only
imagine how much gets fine-tuned or changed along the way as she’s writing.
This would be a good question for her to ask her: as an
author of how she juggles it all, and why she changed it—Since LoS is already
written you might be lucky enough to get an answer (if it’s not too spoilery).
Cassie periodically has her ask box open on Tumblr (there is no way to know
when, you just have to check often) and she takes questions from everyone. I’ve
sent out a few myself and was amazed that she took the time to answer. She
hasn’t answered all, and sometimes she just leaves a few words privately (all
questions don’t get their own post), but it’s open to EVERYBODY—even those who
live in other countries or speak other languages.
