I love Shadowhunters and I love tags.
I'm rereading the TMI and TID series' (in publication order... go me!) and I'm also watching the TV show, so I've been pretty Shadowhuntered (that's a word) up this past month. So it's the PERFECT time to jump into this tag.
I'm excited, I'm ready, let's go. (I'm going to be focusing on all three Shadowhunter series!)
who is your favorite character?
I'D RATHER DIE THAN PICK ONE CHARACTER. Sigh. I'll try my best to keep it short.
BEST CHARACTER IN TID. He's so soft, and lovely, and I JUST WANT TO HOLD HIM.
ANOTHER SOFTIE. I love him. I LOVE HIM. If anything bad happens to him in Queen of Air and Darkness I will NEVER FORGIVE CASSIE. He is just too much. <333333
Not a softie but a total queen. She's an amazing female protagonist with the right amount of SASS. She's not as annoying as Clary and has a lot more personality than Tessa SO YES. I just love Carstairs. All of them.
MY ORIGINAL FAVE MISS IZZY. She is THE badass female and will forever be one of my favorite characters of all time.
look at her go!
who is your otp?
JHVSJGIB STOP. Fourway tie between Sizzy, Malec, Kierark, and Jessa. Ask me to pick between Sizzy and Malec AND I WILL THROW YOU OFF A CLIFF.
I can never choose. I WILL NEVER CHOOSE.
AGAIN SO MANY. Something I've actually been doing recently is keeping track of quotes I like from books and writing them on my phone, so I have a MASSIVE list of shadowhunters quotes from all the books except for City of Heavenly Fire and Clockwork Princess so here's a TINY TINY TINY list.
“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 on 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. You want—" (Lady Midnight)
"'You think Mark still loves Kieran?'
'I think you cannot root out love entirely. I think where there has been love, there will always be embers, as the remains of a bonfire outlast the flame.'" (Lord of Shadows)
"'Do you know why I'm sure?' he whispered, kissed her temple, her cheek where it tasted like salt. 'Because when this universe was born, when it blasted into existence in fire and glory, everything that would ever exist was created. Our souls are made of that fire and glory, of the atoms of it, the fragments of stars. Everyone's are, but I believe ours, yours and mine, are made from the dust of the same star. That's why we've always been drawn to each other like magnets, all our lives. All the pieces belong together.'" (Lord of Shadows)
"'And if we don't have Energy runes, we'll have to get our energy the old-fashioned way.'
Mark looked puzzled. 'Drugs?'
'Chocolate,' Emma said. 'I brought chocolate. Mark, where do you even come up with these things?'"
“‘I kind of doubt he sent a Ravener demon to her house because he wants to ‘get back together’ said Alec.
‘It wouldn’t be my move,’ Jace agreed. ‘Dies the candy and flowers, then the apology letters, then the ravenous demon hordes. In that order.’” (City of Bones)
yeah. that was definitely tiny.
these are my children
movie vs tv show?
TV SHOW. I watched the movie some odd years ago and DESPISED IT. Clary was BRUNETTE?? Isabelle and Alec??? what????? The only good parts were Jace and Simon those two perfect devils.
The first season of the show is pretty bad. I mean the acting is godawful, and the plot is strange... but the second season (WHICH I'M ALMOST DONE WITH), is soooo much better. The plot has more depth, and so do the characters.
We still haven't gotten Sizzy yet.. but the Malec stuff? TOO PERFECT. I also adore Matthew Daddario <333
i mean. look.
what would your shadowhunter last name be?
I've always felt like a Carstairs? Mainly because I love the Carstairs. I mean both Jem and Emma are pretty great, and the whole falling in love was bad because option 1: I'm dying and option 2: we're parabatai sounds pretty dope.
would you rather listen to jace play the piano, jem play the violin, play video games with simon, read a book with will, or paint a wall with julian?
PROBABLY listen to Jem play the violin because.. it's Jem.. and I play violin too so we could have a totally awesome duet rock out session.
I SUCK at video games, and I hate reading WITH other people, and Julian would just paint Emma all over the wall. Jace, I could consider...
if you could have one rune, what would it be?
I'm gonna be simple and say MEMORY RUNE. I'd never do bad on a test. I could remember every book I ever read like Will. THERE IS NO DOWNSIDE.
what type of downworlder would you be?
I'd love to be a faerie, because they are so so gorgeous and Faerie sounds so beautiful (the seelie part of it.. that is..) but I'd be no good at the manipulative crazy part so..
I'd take being a warlock. MAGIC. Plus, I'd get to hang out with Magnus. No downside.
favorite series so far?
Every inch of me wants to be classic and say TMI.. but honestly it's the Dark Artifices. I love the characters and the plot with my whole heart and while I love TMI too.. there's just something about TDA that makes me love it so dearly. And that something's name is Mark Blackthorn.
TID... you're cool... but really.. I disliked how bland Tessa was and how rude Will was... I just had issues with that series. But Jem.. sweetheart.. you're special and I LOVE YOU.
who is your most hated character?
CAMILLE. FREAKING. BELCOURT.
She is the worst. Sebastian and Valentine did bad things.. but CAMILLE MESSED WITH EVERYTHING I LOVED. She deserves nothing. EVIL VAMPIRE LADY.
Sebastian is actually not that high on the list... I don't know why... he'll probably go back up after CoHF but right now I'm at that domestic part of CoLS where he's being all brotherly and it's kind of weird but I kind of love it? I'M EVIL.
if you could spend a day with a character, who would it be?
JEM. IN LONDON. I would love for him to take me sightseeing and go around and have a pleasant time, and then listen to him play violin. I feel like he would be the best person to just BE around.
which is your favorite shadowhunters book?
GAH. So far? Lord of Shadows and City of Heavenly Fire. CoHF is 600 pages of pure demon angel majestic goodness that I can never get enough of. And Lord of Shadows is 700 pages of pure hot faerie threesome necromancy jemma angst goodness that I will NEVER get enough of.
And in both we get Blackthorns, so what can I not love about it???
which book had the worst cliff hanger?
It's definitely not the best book in the series but City of Fallen Angels KILLED ME AT THE END. I was left in a panic, I wanted to scream, throw my book, RUN TO MY JACE AND SAVE HIM.
here's an actual image of me finishing city of fallen angels:
Cassie Clare you FIEND.
But Lady Midnight was also pretty unnerving.. "Why lie?" JUST. IT'S NOT EVEN THAT BIG BUT... gah
if you could have more of something in the shadowhunters world, what would it be?
MORE SIDE BLACKTHORN CHARACTERS!! If we don't get some good Kitty action in the next book... issues... I will have issues..
ALSO ALL MY PRECIOUS FAERIE KIDS. I want more Kieran and Mark and I WANT MORE HELEN. GIVE ME HELEN BLACKTHORN.
Also please I want domestic Sizzy. GIVE ME SIMON AND IZZY LIVING IN A HOUSE AND IZZY COOKING TERRIBLE THINGS. GIVE IT TO ME. now.
if you could meet cassandra clare, what would you ask her?
*cracks knuckles* OH BOY.
