Re: City of Ashes!!! *spoiler alert*

No!! because if they are both valentines children they wont be able to be together and clary will end up being with this "sebastien" guy =/

 

But also theres the whole thing with Clary's mum "hiding information" from Valentine, that could have something to do with the whol clary/jace situation?

 

 

i want simon and maia to get together. ohhh i never realised...was it jace's blood that made him like that? haha

 

 

You guys SERIOUSLY have to tell me what happens when it comes out! I CANNOT wait four months!

Dude,  no.  That would totally ruin it!  you say that now, but then you'll be mad that you know what's going to happen already.  Lol. 

 

We'll tell you certain stuff, but I'm not gonna give it away.  Lol.

Re: City of Ashes!!! *spoiler alert*

I think the Mortal Instruments series is technically pretty good, but I've still got a hate on for Cassie Clare because of all the crap she pulled when she was still just a fanfiction author. :smileyindifferent:

 

I hope Jace is Valentine's son, actually. It'd just be silly to build up all the emo and drama about Clary/Jace and then quick-fix it!

Re: City of Ashes!!! *spoiler alert*

 Hey girl. Yes, it's technically good, and that's the only reason I continue to read them.  Lol.  That and I love Alec/Magnus.  They're just too darn adorable.  Lol. 

 

God.  Clary/Jace needs to die.  Or one of them does at least.  Preferably Jace..... such an arse.

Hey, you! :smileytongue:

 

Ugh, I hate Jace. I'll never understand what people find appealing about unrepentant jerks in leather pants.

Re: City of Ashes!!! *spoiler alert*

I know!  He is such a conceited jerk!  I don't know why anyone would like him!  Not that Clary is any better.  Talk about leading Simon on.  God.  I don't hate her, just strongly dislike her.  Even if she is a younger version of Clare.  *rolls eyes*

 

Magnus however, is the awesomest character that there ever was.  I can't completely hate Clare, just because she made Magnus.  Lol.  Any guy with rainbow leather pants, spiky hair, glitter, piercings and cats eyes, is just plain awesome.  Lol.

Re: City of Ashes!!! *spoiler alert*

Looks like Clary and Jace deserve each other, then! The younger-version-of-Clare thing is really annoying, tbh, but at least she's honest about it.

 

I don't think he's the best, but he is pretty darn fabulous. (...and now I want Magnus to somehow meet Mr. Visual Kei from Persona 2 wtfffff)

Re: City of Ashes!!! *spoiler alert*

 I was wondering why it was such a big deal to Jace that Clary not go to the city of Glass.  Especially since she is going their to help her mom.  I hate waiting!!  17 days left!!

Re: City of Ashes!!! *spoiler alert*

Well she did give us the cookies. and It's only days.  I've been waiting a long long time and it wont have been the first either.  My sugestion is entertain yourselves with lots of diffrent books or spend your days in the City of Glass chat rooms or being even more obbsessed do both plus read the books non stop.  Me I've done all of that and I have also loaned out the book so as not to mope. I love these books.  And getting hooked is always fun so just wait  oh and if you screamed while thinking of this book well you're not the only one. Oh sorry for all those people who have to wait longer I am so so sorry.Counting down the days...:smileyhappy:

My friend has to wait an extra two months to read it because she is in bootcamp.  Her sister and I were going to tease her with little sections we enjoyed while she is gone.

Re: City of Ashes!!! *spoiler alert*

OMG, I love Jace!!! Considering his history of abuse during his childhood, it's not surprising that he can come off as obnoxious. But underneath he is really kind and noble. Jace is definitely my favorite character. If he and Clary don't get together I'll scream. I think Jace is an angel, considering that Clare's been  dropping so many hints. Only one more week of waiting!!!!!! I loved City of Ashes; it was even better than the first installment. Also, the prequel series looks awesome.
