• Kit: Why are you wearing a crown?
  • Kieran: To let other knows they are in the presences of royalty.
  • Kit: We’re at McDonald’s. And you’re crown is from the dollarstore.

happy 26th birthday to the first book character i truly loved with all my heart and soul… clarissa adele fairchild❤︎ 

“Heroes aren’t always the ones who win,“ she said. "They’re the ones who lose, sometimes. But they keep fighting, they keep coming back. They don’t give up. That’s what makes them heroes.”

I just noticed this. I don’t know how I missed it, but I did. So in the flower cards, Cordelia Carstairs is shown with a flower crown of daisies.

And Grace Blackthorn is said to love making flower crowns. The odd thing is that James calls her Daisy, as in the flower, and Grace likes making flower crowns.

My theory is, maybe James is in love with Grace and Cordelia, and maybe Grace is in love with Cordelia as well. I mean its strange that Cassandra Jean put in two things, that are in a way hobbies of two other characters, (Grace makes crowns, James picks out nicknames for everyone) and then put them on one specific character.

Also I’d like to point out that daisies don’t just mean loyalty or love, they also mean purity and innocence, two things Magnus called Grace in TMH [Magnus does not exactly describe Grace as pure, but he does imply it (he says she looks innocent like a child)].

Strange right?

Anyways, I’m probably the only one who thinks this (if you do think the same then maybe we can talk more about theories and whatnot).

I have watched the first time flashback about 15 times this past week to gif and it still gets to me every single time, the music their giggles their smiling faces Magnus being worried Alec’s gonna judge him and Alec being supportive af I can’t deal w these feels man

q&a various

the-book-nerds-world said:Hi! Will any new characters be introduced in The Wicked Powers? Can’t wait! Thanks :)

Yep! Dru has her own group of friends, as well as her family, and there are various other villains and heroes and side characters.

princekierz said:Hei Cassie. Does the Unseelie King or the Seelie Queen have names (not their true names, but names like “Kieran”, “Meliorn” or “Iarlath” for instance) that close people can call them other then just their “royal titles”? And also, can you tell which was/is Kieran’s mother name?

Yes, the King and Queen have both true names, and also names their more intimate friends might call them that are not true names. Since we never see the Queen from the point of view of a faerie, or at least we haven’t yet, the Shadowhunters aren’t going to think of her or call her anything but “The Seelie Queen” because it’s still an honor to call her by her common name, and not one she’d extend lightly.

the-book-nerds-world said:Hiii, Cassie! Oh my God I know that snippet is of Julian (he just seems so dark and Julian-ish) I really wanted to ask this question, is Cordelia’s hair natural or dyed? Thank you, Cassie, *virtual hugs* have a nice day!

Cordelia doesn’t dye her hair, but she does use henna on it, which intensifies the red. Her hair is naturally auburn (dark reddish brown). She’s biracial, with a Persian mother and an English father. Red-headed people have existed in the region of Persia/Iran for centuries, though the trait isn’t common. (When I was a baby in Iran, with dark red hair, Iranian moms who stopped to talk to my mom assumed my dad was Iranian. Sometimes they would comment on my hair being a “sign of Alexander” — as in the Greek blood of Alexander the Great still bouncing around giving people reddish hair, probably a myth but I love a myth.) Cordelia’s brother Alastair does dye his hair blond, for his own reasons, but not for all the books.

reallyluna said:I just wanted to let you know how important of a character Dru is to me. When I was younger (and even now), I was always the chubby kid and developed a bit earlier than the other girls. There’s all these characters about girls who are self conscious about not having boobs or curves or whatever, but I never actually read about a character who was sometimes self conscious because of those things. So thank you for giving me a character I can really relate to.

“I realized something,” she said. “I want to be like you, Jules. Not this second, not right now, but someday. I want to take care of people, other Shadowhunters, people who need me. I want to run an Institute.”

lily chen is the most underrated tsc character ever. she’s a badass asian vampire who’s the head of the new york vampire clan as well as part of the original downworlder-shadowhunter alliance, why isn’t she talked about more??

q&a the rosales family

lkbs-love said: Hello, Cassie! First i would like to thank you for creating a great world like the Shadowhunter’s and especially for Cristina! She’s my favorite but my question is about the Rosales family: How did they became closer to faeries? Will we find out more about this? Are there another families like them i mean closer to Downloaders? What the faeries are for them? (Sorry it turned out to a lot of questions) Thank you one more time and kiss from Brazil!

Thank you! You’ll find out more about how the Rosales family became close with faeries in Queen of Air and Darkness, and also in the Wicked Powers, since members of the Rosales family will continue to be significant characters going forward.

There are other Shadowhunter families that have had particularly close relationships with Downworlders! A branch of the Rosewain family in Cumbria has a long-running friendship with one of the oldest werewolf packs in Europe. The Keo family from Sihanoukville Province in Cambodia has shared a close bond with local Nagas for over a century. The Lindquist family of northern Sweden has been hunting demons in cooperation with the Umeå vampire clan for generations. 

There are other examples as well, but in the wake of the Cold Peace, many of these Shadowhunters try not to bring attention to their relationships with Downworlders. Their efforts to lay low are more for the protection of the Downworlders they love than out of a sense of shame or wrongdoing.
