Virtues and Vices

Cassandra Jean has done a project combining some of Cassandra Clare’s characters and the seven virtues and vices. The seven virtues are chastity (although, in Cassandra Jean’s set, this is swapped for wisdom), temperance, charity, diligence, patience, kindness, and humility, and the seven vices are lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, and pride. She has paired a character with each of the virtues and vices. These are great illustrations by a very talented artist. Check them out!

COG Deleted Scene

This is a deleted Jalec scene from City of Glass, where Jace kisses Alec to convince him that he’s not really in love with him.

“Drop it, Jace,” Alec said in a warning tone.

Jace was having none of being warned. “Magnus says it’s because you’re hung up on me. Is that true?”

There was a moment of utter silence. Then Alec gave a despairing howl of horror and put his hands up to cover his face. “I am going to kill Magnus. Kill him dead.”

“Don’t. He cares about you. He really does. I believe that,” Jace said, managing to sound only a little bit awkward. “Look. I don’t want to push you into anything, but do you maybe want to —”

“Call Magnus? Look, that’s a dead end, I know you’re trying to be helpful, but —”

“—kiss me?” Jace finished.

TDA Snippet

A small snippet from Lady Midnight! Read all about it here.

Far below them the world spun by, a patchwork of summer-gold fields, green hills, and luminous, winding rivers of blue and green. It was beautiful, but Julian could not take his eyes off his brother. So this is the Wild Hunt, he thought. This freedom, this expanse, this ferocity of joy. For the first time, he understood how and why Mark’s choice to stay with his family might not be an easy one. For the first time he thought in wonder of how much his brother must love him after all, to consider giving up the sky for his sake.

A History of Notable Shadowhunters

A book has been released called A History of Notable Shadowhunters and Denizens of Downworld: Told in the Language of Flowers by Cassandra “Cartwright” Clare and Cassandra “Starkweather” Jean.  It is inspired by the Victorian Language of Flowers.

Victorian Flower Dictionary Cover

It basically has many pictures of different flowers and explains what kind of flower they are, plus extra information about those flowers. What the Cassandras are doing are they’re making a book where instead of flowers, it is different characters from The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices, The Dark Artifices, Tales From the Shadowhunter Academy, and The Last Hours. Cassandra Jean will be drawing portraits of the characters, and Cassandra Clare will be revealing exclusive details and notes on the characters!
