gfx: the dark artifices

Hugging is Kit and Ty’s thing right ;))

So Jace is my actual family,” Kit said. “But I can’t go live with him, because him and his hot girlfriend are going off on some sort of secret mission.”
“Guess you Herondales have a type,” Julian muttered.

So how come Bridget got to live 140+ years as a mundane but my boy Will only got 76??? Cassie you’ve got some explaining to do hunny

If you could have one question answered honestly about QOAAD, what would it be?

I would want to know why Julian Blackthorn and Emma Carstairs can’t remember Jem and Tessa’s wedding, since we were supposed to find out 700 pages ago.

With Trump’s decision today about trans people being forbidden to serve in the military…

Stories like Shadowhunters, and their books, that embrace characters from the LGBTQ community become that much more important.

On the show, we have a gay-bisexual with a person of color relationship (Malec), asexual representation with Raphael, lesbian rep with Aline and Ollie.

In the books, we have all that’s listed above, along with trans Diana Wrayburn (from Lord of Shadows)–a badass warrior extraordinaire, several bisexual characters (Mark, Helen, maybe Kieran?), and so much more.

Continue to support and promote these stories, y'all. We are lucky to have them. We are lucky to discuss and analyze them. We are lucky to swoon and cry over them. Fight against ignorance and bigotry with these beautiful characters and their stories.

  • Diana: to all the other trans people out there, I'd like to remind you that you are not a burden. You deserved to be loved and accepted. There will be bigots out there who will try to tear you down, but THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU. You will meet people who accept you and will fight for you. And I wanted to say that you are worth fighting for. Stay strong.
  • Charlotte: What's the easiest way to steal a man's wallet?
  • Jem: Knife to the throat?
  • Will: Gun to the back?
  • Jessamine: Poison in his cup?
  • Tessa:
  • Tessa: You're all terrible
It’s not a problem. Shadowhunters take in Shadowhunters. It’s what we do.”
“You really think that’s such a good idea?” Kit said. “I mean, your house is pretty screwed up, what with your agoraphobic uncle and your weird brother.”
Julian’s hands tightened on the wheel, but the only thing he said was, “Ty isn’t weird.”
“I meant Mark,” said Kit. There was an odd pause. “Ty isn’t weird,” Kit added. “He’s just autistic.

“Truth is to be found in dreams,” the King said, looking down at them. From this angle, Emma could see that the odd splitting of his face ended at his throat, which was ordinary skin. “Tell me, Shadowhunters: You enter a cave. Inside the cave is an egg, lit from within and glowing. You know that it beats with your dreams—not the ones you have during the day, but the ones you half-remember in the morning. It splits open. What emerges?”

“A rose,” said Mark. “With thorns.”

A rose with thorns

Rosales and Blackthorn

Such a smooth motherfucker

Minor Rant

So I read the deleted scene from lord of shadows and I need to know if anyone else got really defensive over the Jem/Tessa/Will mentions like I did. I may be overreacting but I just feel so protective over the infernal devices characters since it’s my favorite of the shadowhunter chronicles. Like I get that it’s probably hard for Emma and Jules to understand the love that the 3 of them shared, especially because it is such an uncommon love story, but I seriously was yelling at the book when I read them talking about the love triangle! Tessa going to see Jem every year is NOT unfaithful to Will. Will loves Jem, and he KNOWS that Tessa loves Jem too. And then (I might be overreacting at this) it seemed like Emma was viewing Jem and Tessa’s situation as Will being in the way, like when she compared her and Jules to Tessa and Jem. I don’t know, like I said before I might be overreacting but I just needed to rant a bit. HERONGRAYSTAIRS DESERVES BETTER
