PhantomRin Ship Images

These pictures were drawn by PhantomRin, a brilliant artist on Tumblr. She does lots of drawings for different series, such as the Cassandra Clare novels, Red Rising by Pierce Brown, The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo, Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater, and more! I could tell you all I know about her, but she was one step ahead of me in posting a picture about herself, so I’ll let it describe her!

Malec’s First Time and First Kiss Stories

Cassandra Clare is in the process of writing Malec’s first time!! She says she thinks she will release it in the same way she released Not For Humans, where you will pay some money to a charity (she’s thinking an LGBTQ charity for this one) and in return you receive the story! She does not know when she will be able to start sharing the full story as she is not running the project, but she has released a snippet from it:

Alec liked Magnus best like this, when he wasn’t particularly dressed up, when he was just in a t-shirt and his dark silky hair was free of gel or spikes. It wasn’t that he didn’t like Magnus’ clothes, it was that sometimes he felt like Magnus wore them like armor, a layer of protection between him and a world that didn’t always meet someone who burned so brightly and so differently with open arms.

While you wait for the full story, here’s the story of Malec’s first kiss!

Lady Midnight Inside Cover Image

If you buy the Costco version of Lady Midnight, you also receive a Cassandra Jean picture on the inside cover, but Cassandra Clare posted the picture to her Tumblr so everyone could see it!

I thought you guys might like to see the jacket interior illustration Cassandra Jean did for the Costco version of Lady Midnight, with each character labeled. I don’t own a copy myself but I’ve seen it and it’s very pretty! These are the TMI and TDA characters, portrayed together — not every one of the TMI character appears in Lady Midnight, but they do appear through the series. And there’s one TDA character that is left out, because, spoilers :) 

You can see all of the main characters in Lady Midnight, and also some TMI characters that will be in the future TDA books!

Not For Humans Extra TMI Scene

You may have heard of a time referenced in one of The Mortal Instruments books where Jace ran down a street wearing nothing but a pair of antlers on his head. This story has some Mortal Instruments characters, as well as characters from Holly Black’s series, Modern Faerie Tale. It originally started out as a charity project where you donated money to a charity and received a pdf of the story, but now enough time has passed that it has been publicly published! You don’t need to know Holly Black’s characters to find this story humorous.

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!
