LoS answers, spoilers

thewildhuntt said:Hello Cassie! I just wanted to say I love your books and they’ve helped me a lot. My question is : Due to the death of Robert, will Emma’s exile and its terms still work out?

Alas, no. But you’re not too surprised about that, are you? ;)

He’ll be mentioned even sooner.

fashionablepenguin07 said: HI Cassie! I just wanted to let you know how much Dru means to me. She’s the first fictional character that I ever felt like I’ve been able to relate to and I am so thankful that you gave her to us. I was wondering how large of a role is she going to play in QoAaD? (Also TWP if you can tell)

In QoAAD Dru is a secondary character, which means she has her own arc and storyline but drives a different set of narrative choices than say, Julian or Emma. (There’s nothing wrong with being a secondary character, though I often see it described as if it is a terrible injury done to a character! Protagonists are not more important or better than secondary characters, they simply serve a different purpose.) Dru is one of the protagonists of TWP and you’ll see a great deal of her there! She also has some fun stuff to do with Kit and Ty in QuAAD.

Of course!

Magisterium-y questions

silverstormywolf said:Hi! I just wanted to ask if the Shadowhunters and Magisterium series happen in the same world? Because in part of Lord of Shadows, when Livvy, Ty and Kit are spying on Zara, they see the inscription ‘Fire wants to burn’ which was from the saying in the Magisterium. Also, I love your books!

Thank you! I think of it as open to reader interpretation. Could they exist in the same world? If you want to think so, then yes! If you just want to think of it as an easter egg from me to you, that’s ok too. Or maybe Zara is a big Magisterium fan and she carved the Cinquain into the desk. ;)

akward-homo-sapien said: I love all your series but I was wondering if the topic of Constantine Madden’s soul being in Callum Hunt’s body is ever going to be fully discussed in the next book of the Magisterium series. Will Call regain Con’s memories? I’m really interested in internal and external struggles so I’m excited for your next and last book The Enemy of Death!!! Good luck out there!

Actually, the title of the last book is The Golden Tower! Holly and I think of the story of Magisterium as being about, among other things, what it means to be a person, to have a soul, to have a destiny. If Constantine’s soul is in Call’s body, isn’t Call still Call — a different person? Can he change his future or is he doomed to live Constantine’s life again? I can’t say what happens in The Golden Tower but I can say that those questions are answered as fully as we can answer them.

I think Jasper is a poster child for only child syndrome. :D

  • people: shadowhunters is an immature show
  • me:
  • me: 5/8 main characters are non stereotyped ethnicities, lots of lgbtq+ characters, healthy relationship between a gay man and a bi man, minorities in positions of power, highlights issues like drug abuse and child abuse, shows how parents' views effect their children, characters from different religions
