Day 6 - Favorite Scene: The Ball

She looked up at him, lips parted in bewilderment. “Know what?” she said, and Will, with a sigh of something like defeat, kissed her.

He traced slow, glancing butterfly kisses across her mouth, each as measured as the beat of a heart, each saying she was precious, irreplaceable, wanted. Tessa could no longer keep her hands at her sides. She reached to cup the back of his neck, to tangle her fingers in the dark silky waves of his hair, to feel his pulse hammering against her palms.

All the pieces inside her that had felt broken and jagged when se looked at Will these past few weeks began to knit together and heal. She felt light, as if she could float.

“Will,” she whispered against his mouth. She wanted him closer to her so badly, it was like an ache, a painful hot ache that spread out from her stomach to speed her heart and knot her hands in his hair and set her skin to burning. “Will, you need not be so careful. I will not break.”

Why would Malcolm take Jem and Tessa's word when they weren't even born when Annabelle is "taken from him"? Blaming Magnus makes more sense, since Magnus was alive and most likely knew if Malcolm and Annabelle. Also, how does Jem not know Annabelle isn't an Iron Sister? Or is becoming a Iron Sister like becoming a Silent Brother where they choose another name? Like how Jem is/was Brother Zachariah.


I was initially very confused by this question because of course Malcolm didn’t hear about Annabel becoming an Iron Sister from Jem or Tessa – as you say, they weren’t alive then. So I went through Lady Midnigh and I think you are referring to these passages in Lady Midnight, though Jem isn’t mentioned:

Lies?” Malcolm’s voice rose. “You want to talk about lies? They lied to me about Annabel. They said she had become an Iron Sister. All of them told me the same lie: Magnus, Catarina, Tessa. It was from a faerie I found out that they had lied. From a faerie I learned what had really happened to Annabel. By then she was long dead. The Blackthorns, murdering their own!”

“They told me she’d become an Iron Sister. All of them lied to me—Magnus, Catarina, Ragnor, Tessa—corrupted by Shadowhunters, drawn in by their lies! And I, oblivious, grieving  for her, until finally I found out the truth—”

And then here, Jem talks to Emma about Malcolm:

Jem turned back toward her, the light of sympathy in his dark eyes. “We heard everything from Magnus. He told us that you were the one who killed Malcolm,” he said. “That must have been hard. You knew him. It’s not like killing demons.”
“I knew him,” Emma said. “At least, I thought I did.”
“We knew him too. Tessa was heartbroken to hear that Malcolm believed that we all lied to him. Concealed from him that Annabel was not an Iron Sister, but was dead, murdered by her family. We believed the story, but he died thinking we all knew the truth. What a betrayal that must have felt like.”
“It’s strange to think he was your friend. Though I guess he was our friend too.”
“People are more than one thing. Warlocks, no less. I would not even hesitate to say that Malcolm once did much good, before he did evil. It is one of the great lessons of growing up, learning that people can do both.”

My guess, and I apologize if I’m wrong, is that you’re expanding Malcolm’s statements to mean: “They lied to me about Annabel. They said she had become an Iron Sister. All of them told me the same lie: Magnus, Catarina, Tessa. They were the first people to tell me what happened to Annabel. They are all very responsible and very involved in what happened with Annabel and with me.”

None of that is true, though. 

It isn’t like Malcolm’s warlock friends were the ones who broke the news to him that Annabel joined the Iron Sisters. They didn’t. You’ll find out more about what happened with Annabel, the Clave, the Iron Sisters, and Malcolm in LOS but Malcolm was told the lie about Annabel joining the Iron Sisters by the Clave and Annabel’s family (and even though he didn’t like them, he wouldn’t have thought the truth was that they’d murdered her instead. That is extreme and not the sort of thing anyone would assume.) 

Everyone but a very few people in the government and Annabel’s family believed she had joined the Iron Sisters and they had good reasons to believe it. But Malcolm thinks his friends should have known better than to repeat the lie (that they didn’t know was a lie.) Malcolm felt betrayed by Tessa, Magnus, Catarina, and Ragnor specifically because he thinks they might have had inside information, since all of them are warlocks who have been known to associate closely with Shadowhunters, and Tessa was even married to one.

Malcolm is being unreasonable. He is like someone who found out his wife is cheating and so gets rid of all of his friends because “"they probably knew about it” even though they didn’t. But then Malcolm is also willing to punish the Blackthorns of 200 years ago by killing the Blackthorns of today so we should not look to him for logic, just rage and betrayal.

Iron Sisters do take on other names, just like Silent Brothers do. That is why they have similar sounding names, and why none of them is introduced with a last name. They are extremely secretive; there’s no reason to believe that Jem would know who any of them had been before they renounced their old lives. Diana actively sought out that information, but there’s no reason Jem or anyone else would have done so: why would they be checking up on Malcolm’s ex-girlfriend? There was no reason to do that when he thought she had voluntarily become an Iron Sister and by the time found out she hadn’t, he didn’t need them to check on it, and didn’t tell them anyway.

Malcolm probably does blame Magnus but that is because Malcolm blames everyone friendly with Shadowhunters, not because Malcolm has any logical reason to blame any of these people, half of whom weren’t born when Annabel was killed. Just because Malcolm is angry that Tessa and the others believed the official story (which he told them!) that Annabel had become an Iron Sister rather than magically figuring out it hadn’t happened that way doesn’t mean they were responsible for the lie in the first place. They have next to nothing to do with the whole business. They just happen to be who Malcolm and Diana are discussing in this one scene.

The ceremony went off with out a hitch. Tessa looked beautiful and Frank cried as she walked down the isle with your dad. Pastor Andrews conducted the ceremony with grace and Tessa cried when Frank gave his vows.

 Of course, you were distracted the whole time.

 Steve stood at the back of the extensively decorated barn and smiled at you the whole time. He looked amazing in his dark blue suit and you were stunned at how well he cleaned up. You had half a mind to go invisible just so he wouldn’t see you blushing, but Tessa would kill you for stealing the spotlight on her big day. So, you stood there, trying to ignore your grinning soldier who grinned at you with his arms crossed. You fixed your eyes on your sister but no matter how much you willed yourself not to, you kept stealing glances back at Steve.

 Tessa was, thankfully, so picky that she knew every picture that she wanted to have taken so, after the bridesmaids shots and the family pictures, you were done within forty-five minutes. When you made your way to the reception tent you quickly found Steve, who was being forced to mingle with your great grandmother. At first you were mortified that she seemed to be flirting with him, but you smirked when he looked like he was flirting back. It was then that you realized they might actually have something in common.

Hi Cassie! I must admit that I love to see how you enjoy interacting with us - your fans - as much as we do with you. It's always lovely to see it!But back to my question: I'm utterly captivated by Malcom & Annabel! But since I bought "A history of notable shadowhunters and denizens of downworld", I'm kinda wondering how Annabel lost that finger and what about all the scars? I know you probably can't answer since it would give away too much, but maybe you can give us a hint or little snippet?😊

Lord of Shadows is absolutely an investigation into the story of Annabel. We know what happened to her is shrouded in some mystery — we have Malcolm’s version and we have the fairytale version, but what’s the real version? In Lord of Shadows our current Team Good seeks answers in the past, including going to Blackthorn Hall (which once belonged to the Lightwoods, and is where Will, Jem and Tessa killed a giant worm in Clockwork Princess) and to Cornwall, where Annabel and Malcolm grew up. 

Quotes from Lady Midnight I liked:

“Life’s short and wisdom long to learn”

“When you love someone they become a part of who you are. They’re in everything you do. They’re in the air you breathe and the water you drink and the blood in your veins. Their touch stays in your skin and their voice stays in your ears and their thoughts stay in your mind. You know their dreams because their nightmares pierce your heart and their good dreams are your dreams too. And you don’t think they’re perfect, but you know their flaws, the deep down truth of them, and the shadows of all their secrets, and they don’t frighten you away; in fact you love them more for it, because you don’t want perfect. You want them.”

“If there were two things that he believed were limitless, it was love and imagination”

“You belong where you’re loved,”

“I read once that explaining a joke is like dissecting a frog. You find out how it works, but the frog dies in the process ”

“We can be cruelest to those who remind us of ourselves”

“Captain America is definitely the most handsome Avenger,” said Christina. “But I like Hulk. I would like to heal his broken heart” “We’re Nephelim,” said Julian. “We’re not supposed to know about the Avengers. Besides” he added,“ lron man is obviously the best-looking .”

“When no one you know tells the truth, you learn to see under the surface.”

“The sea wears down cliffs, and turns them into sand; so love wears us down and breaks our defenses. ”

“Time sees and hears all things, and discloses all.”

“As long there is love and memory, there is no true death.”

“Your heart is a weapon the size of your fist.”

“Everyone is more than one thing. We are more than single actions we undertake, whether they be good or evil”

“Heroes aren’t always the ones who win. 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.”

“No one is the villain of their own story”

“If you try to cure evil with evil you will add more pain to your fate.” (Antigone)

“She had realized that love could cut you like the edge of a blade”

Quotes with spoilers

“These pictures are my heart. And if my heart was a canvas, every square inch of it would be painted over with you.”

“People live through a heartbreak and you are strong enough to live through it many times. But Julian is not someone who can touch your heart. He can touch your soul. And there is a difference between having your heart break and having your soul shatter.”

“Emma couldn’t play a note in any instrument but Julian understood her music. Even the music of revenge.”

Can we talk about the references to the dark artifices in episode 5?

About yin fen? The drug that actually killed jem?
I don’t know. But i hope Brother Zacariah appears right now in the show, now that Valentine killed the silent Brothers it would be AMAZING.
Also… What if they found out that powerfull warlock named Tessa Gray.
All the references that the show had made are killing me. I can’t.

so I’m finally reading City of Heavenly Fire so I can be done with tmi and I just lost it for a solid 3 minutes
*spoilers ahead*
jace, sweetheart I do love you and your sarcasm, it reminds me too much of Will to not love you as well. But this guy brought a fucking condom into hell and I am dying. The lead up was nice and cute and it was their first time so blah blah adorable. Meanwhile I’m thinking, I wonder if there’s like a pregnancy protection rune or something cause they aren’t going to have a condom. Low and behold he reaches into his gear for a condom and I had to put the book down I was laughing so hard. They had like barely minutes to prepare and said to pack the essentials and this dude, who at this point still can’t touch clary for prolonged periods or he’ll literally melt her face off, thinks to bring a condom. I don’t know if it’s just like shadowhunter preparedness 101 but my dude was fucking prepared


Being told love is forbidden does not kill love. It strengthens it.

We heard this interview with The Slits, where instead of answering boring questions in a standard way — questions like, What’s it like to be a woman in music? — they had a tape-recorder and they were playing back witch laughter noises.

I really hope chouinard isn't choreographing the sds because whatever pc are doing in their instagram vid is pretty bad. Hopefully tessa and scott is smart enough to bring in an actual latin expert.
