Aline Penhallow and Helen Blackthorn get married in new ‘Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy’ snippet

#Lovewins so Cassandra Clare took to her tumblr to celebrate with a snippet from one of her upcoming Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy.

I thought a snippet from Helen and Aline’s wedding in the TSFA story Bitter of Tongue might be appropriate!

Simon did not fully understand the traditions of the Shadowhunter people.

There was a lot in the Law about who you could and could not marry: if you married a mundane who did not Ascend, you got your Marks stripped and were out on your ear. You could marry a Downworlder in a mundane or a Downworlder ceremony, and you wouldn’t be out on your ear but everyone would be embarrassed, some people would act like your marriage did not count, and your terribly traditional Nephilim Great-Aunt Nerinda would start referring to you as the shame of the family. Plus with the Cold Peace functioning as it was, any Shadowhunter wanting to marry a faerie was probably out of luck.

But Helen Blackthorn was a Shadowhunter, by their own Law, no matter how many people might despise or distrust her for her faerie blood. And Shadowhunters had not actually built it into their precious Law that Shadowhunters could not marry someone of the same sex. Possibly this was just because it hadn’t occurred to anyone even as an option way back when.

So Helen and Aline actually could be married, in a full Shadowhunter ceremony, in the eyes of both their families and their world. Even if they were exiled again right afterward, they got this much.

In a Shadowhunter wedding, Simon had been told, you dressed in gold and placed the wedding rune over each other’s hearts. There was a tradition a little like giving away the bride, for both parties in a marriage. The bride or groom would each choose the most significant person to them from their family—sometimes a father, but sometimes a mother, or a parabatai or a sibling or chosen friend, or their own child or an elder who symbolized the whole family—and the chosen one, or suggenes, would give the bride or groom to their beloved, and welcome their beloved to their own family.

This was not always possible in Shadowhunter weddings, on account of sometimes your whole family and all your friends had been eaten by snake demons. You never knew with Shadowhunters. But Simon thought it was kind of beautiful that Jia Penhallow, Consul and most important member of the Clave, was standing as suggenes to give her daughter Aline to the tainted, scandalous Blackthorns, and to receive Helen into the bosom of her family.

Aline’d had some nerve suggesting it. Jia’d had some nerve agreeing to it. But Simon supposed that the Clave had already effectively exiled Jia’s daughter: what more could they do to her? And how better to politely spit in their eye than to say: this girl you spat on and sent away is now as good as the Consul’s daughter.

Julian was the one standing to give Helen away. He stood in his gold-inscribed clothes, his sister on his arm, and his sea-in-the-sunlight eyes shone as if he was happy as any kid could be. As though he had not a care in the world, though Simon knew better.

Helen and Aline were both dressed in golden gowns, golden thread glittering like starlight in Aline’s black hair. They were both so happy, their faces outshone their gowns. They stood at the centre of the ceremony, twin suns, and for a moment all the world seemed to spin and turn on them.

Helen and Aline drew the marriage runes over each others’ hearts with steady hands. When Aline drew Helen’s bright head down to her own for a kiss, there was applause all throughout the hall.

“Thank you for letting us come,” whispered Helen after the ceremony was over, embracing her new mother-in-law.

Jia Penhallow folded her daughter-in-law in her arms and said, in a voice considerably louder than a whisper: “I am sorry I must let you be sent away again.”

Simon did not tell Julian Blackthorn about meeting Mark, any more than he had told Mark that Helen was not there to care for the Blackthorn children. It seemed hideous cruelty, to load another burden on shoulders already burdened almost past bearing. It seemed better to lie, as faeries could not.

But when he came up to Helen and Aline to congratulate them, he stepped up and kissed Helen on the cheek, so he could whisper to her: “Your brother Mark sends you his love, and his happiness for your love.”

Helen stared at him, sudden tears in her eyes but her smile even more radiant than before.

Cassandra Clare shares ‘Born to Endless Night’ snippets

TSFA-FB-CoverphotoFasten your seatbelts, Malec shippers, because Cassandra Clare has posted a few very special snippets from her upcoming Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy installment Born to Endless Night. In case you don’t know this is the ebook with the baby :)

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy snippet — Malec

You all have been especially awesome lately so … skipping ahead a bit in Tales From, the story Born to Endless Night, in which Magnus and Alec visit the Academy, find an abandoned warlock baby, some students get crushes on Magnus, and Alec makes some tough decisions.

“Vampires are gross and dead, werewolves are gross and hairy, and fairies are treacherous and would sleep with your mom,” said Julie. “Warlocks are the sexy Downworlders. Think about it. They all have daddy issues. And Magnus Bane is the sexiest of them all. He can be High Warlock of my pants.”
“Uh, Magnus has a boyfriend,” said Simon.
There was a frightening glint in Julie’s eye. “There some mountains you still want to climb, even though there are ‘No Trespassing’ signs up.”

Simon collapsed at his lunch table. “I just walked in on Alec and Magnus … you know.”
“What? Where? When? How? Did Magnus seem like an athletic yet tender lover?” Julie demanded.
“Julie!” said Beatriz.
“Thank you, Beatriz,” said Simon.
“Don’t say a word, Simon,” said Beatriz. “Not until I have acquired a pen and paper so I can write down everything you say. I’m sorry, Simon, but they are famous, and celebrities have to bear with this interest in their love lives. They’re like Brangelina.”
“They are not like Brangelina,” Simon said. “What would you even call that? Algnus? That sounds like a foot disease.”
“Obviously, you would call it Malec,” said Beatriz. “Are you stupid, Simon?”
“I will not be distracted!” said Julie. “Does Magnus have piercings? Of course he does, when would he miss an opportunity to shine?”

“I just thought…” Alec said. “Well, I guess I never expected anything like this to happen before we got married.”
“What?” said Magnus.
Alec just stared up at him. One long, strong archer’s hand was dangling into the baby’s crib, but Alec was intent on Magnus, his dark blue eyes darker than ever in the shadows, one look from Alec more important than a kiss from anyone else. Magnus saw he meant it.
“Alec,” he said. “My Alec. You have to know that’s impossible.”

Born to Endless Night was co-written by Cassie and Sarah Rees Brennan and will be released on October 20.

Excerpt:

“Oh, young Mr Herondale.” The dean looked quite happy to be interrupted. “Of course, let me show you the way. Your father entrusted me with a message for you which I can relay as we go.”

She left Ragnor Fell scowling after them. James hoped he had not made another enemy.

“Your father said—what a charming language Welsh is, isn’t it? So romantic!—Pob lwc, a charaid. What does it mean?”

James blushed, because he was much too old for his father to be calling him by pet names. “It just means—it means good luck.”

He could not help smiling as he trailed the dean down the halls. He was sure nobody else’s father had charmed the dean into giving a student a secret message. He felt warm, and watched over.

Until Dean Ashdown opened the door of his new room, bid him a cheerful goodbye, and left him to his horrible fate.

It was a very nice room, airy, with walnut bedposts and white linen canopies. There was a carved wardrobe and even a bookcase.

There was also a distressing amount of Matthew Fairchild.

He was standing in front of a table that had about fifteen hairbrushes on it, several mysterious bottles, and a strange hoard of combs.

“Hullo, Jamie,” he said. “Isn’t it splendid that we are sharing a room? I am certain we will get along swimmingly.”

“James,” James said. “What are all those hairbrushes for?”

Matthew looked at him pityingly. “You don’t think all this—” he indicated his head with a sweeping gesture—“happens on its own?”

“I only use one hairbrush.”

“Yes,” Matthew observed. “I can tell.”

You can find two more snippets here and here.

Due to the time difference between the States and Europe, I’ve already read Nothing but Shadows and I urge you to buy the ebook. The characters from The Last Hours are very loveable and we are reunited with Will Herondale *swoons* and ‘Uncle Jem’.

Happy reading, Shadowhunters!

The next ebook – The Evil We Love – will be released on June 16.

Cassandra Clare writes a ‘Shadowhunters’ FAQ

Shadowhunters banner

ABC Family’s Shadowhunters is scheduled to start filming in eight days so naturally The Mortal Instruments fans all over the world are very excited to see our beloved book series come to the small screen. Today Cassandra Clare published a FAQ on her website and her tumblr to share what she knows about Shadowhunters. Spoiler alert: it is just as much as we know because Cassie sold her rights and has no say in anything!

Shadowhunters Tv faqsy thing

I updated my TV FAQ on my website — long past due for doing that — and then it immediately crashed from traffic, so I thought I’d repost it here. I’ll try to keep my website updated as production goes on.

1) Who is in the cast?

Cast announced so far:

Katherine McNamara…Clary Fray

Dominic Sherwood…Jace Wayland

Alberto Rosende…Simon Lewis

Emeraude Toubia…Isabelle Lightwood

Matthew Daddario…Alec Lightwood

Isaiah Mustafa…Luke Garroway

Alan Van Sprang…Valentine Morgenstern

Harry Shum, Jr… Magnus Bane

2) Who would you like to play Sebastian/Maia/Jocelyn/Raphael/etc? What do you think of this actor I like for Sebastian/Maia/Jocelyn/Raphael/etc?

I feel like the casting team has done a great job so far, and I trust them to cast the future roles. I try not to participate in any kind of fan casting, or giving opinions on actors who have not been cast. If you are really dedicated, you could tweet to ABC Family, or to the casting director on Twitter, with your thoughts. :)

3) Have you met the cast?

No – at the moment we are on different continents. Hopefully I will meet them on set, since they will be filming through October. You can follow them on their Twitters.

4) When will they start filming?

The projected start date for filming is May 25.

5) When will the show air?

The likelihood is that the show will air in early 2016. There’s no specific date set yet, though.

6) Will the show air in other countries than the US and Canada?

Unfortunately,  there’s no way for me to know that. You’re better off looking out for news in your own country.

7) Where’s the best place to get news and information about the show?

Well, TMI Source (www.tmisource.com) is a great resource. ABC Family is also running many of its own social media accounts, which are worth following:

https://www.facebook.com/ShadowhuntersSeries

http://shadowhuntersseries.tumblr.com

http://twitter.com/shadowhunterstv

https://instagram.com/shadowhunterstv/

8) Will Dominic dye his hair blond/Will Kat dye her hair more red/Will Matthew wear contacts?

I have absolutely no idea, and no influence over those kinds of decisions. I’ll probably find out when you do–when they release promo photos.

9) Are you involved with the scripts?

No, I am not involved with the scripts. I don’t know what happens in the show, and the scripts are embargoed, meaning that they are distributed to only a very few people, so that no information will leak.

10) But IMDB has you listed as the co-writer of the first episode!

IMDB is wrong. I am not a co-writer, or a staff writer, or a consultant on this show.

11) Why is Luke a police officer? Why is Simon an accounting student?

Again, I’m sorry, but I don’t know. I’m just not involved in those kinds of decisions. We will just have to wait and see how it plays out.

12) Do you like the cast?

Yes, I like the cast.

13) Do you know anything about who will be cast next?

I sure don’t! I have no idea literally about who is even being considered for other roles. And if I did, I am legally forbidden from saying so anyway. So asking me is sort of a wash.

14) Will the TV show take up where the film ended?

No. It is unrelated to the film. It is not like Buffy — it is a reboot. It begins from the beginning of the first book.

15) Will Raphael/Ragnor/Church be in it?

I don’t know. I only know who was cast, and that those characters will be in it since they cast them.

16) What happened to the cast of the movie? Didn’t you like the cast of the movie? Are you sad that the cast of the movie aren’t playing the roles in the TV show?

The cast of the movie are well and thriving doing other projects. I like them all very much, and consider it a privilege to have met them. The Mortal Instruments movie and the Shadowhunters TV show are two totally different projects made by totally different people, and therefore have different casts, just like they’ll have different sets and different scripts. I’m also a fan of the cast of the TV show, and don’t want to pick favorites as it seems hurtful to both parties.

 

Thanks for the shout-out, Cassie :-)

Make sure to follow the twitter accounts of ShadowhuntersTV, our executive producer and director of the first episode, McG, the casting directors, Jonathan Clay Harris and Anthony Kraus, and the newly created ShadowhuntersWriters in case you want to tweet them.

New Covers for ‘The Infernal Devices’ Are Unveiled

Yesterday fans of Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments were treated to the repackaged covers of books two to six and today it is time to reveal the covers of Cassie’s second Shadowhunter Chronicles series – The Infernal Devices.

Tor.com unveiled the three gorgeous covers which you can see below:

http://i2.wp.com/www.tor.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/clockwork-angel.jpg?fit=0%2C%209999&crop=0%2C0%2C100%2C100

http://i2.wp.com/www.tor.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/clockwork-prince.jpg?fit=0%2C%209999&crop=0%2C0%2C100%2C100

From Russell Gordon, Executive Director of Art, Production, and Design:

The repackaging of Cassandra Clare’s epic Shadowhunter novels has been a rewarding, year-long adventure. Right from the start, when Karen Wojtyla, Justin Chanda, Annie Nybo and I sat down with Cassie to discuss the new direction, I knew it was going to be something truly special. Cassie had a wonderful vision for the new-look: for the characters to be the main focus, to infuse them with a real intensity, and passion, but also keep them a little mysterious. We all wanted to give these new covers as much “heart” as possible. We commissioned the extraordinary Cliff Nielsen (who had worked on the original packaging) as the cover artist. Cliff’s work is not only beautiful in a lyrical way—but it’s edgy and bold and mesmerizing—the perfect match for Cassie’s books. I especially love the details in his work, the way he united a different rune with the featured character on each of the Mortal Instruments covers, and the way the Clockwork Angel is woven into the character on each Infernal Devices cover.

I’ve always thought the best covers were those that will not only draw a new reader in, but also give that reader something else to explore after they’ve finished reading the book; when they go back and pore over all the visual details of the cover they maybe hadn’t understood, or even noticed, before reading the story. There are so many details on every part of the packaging of these books, and I really think it will keep Cassandra Clare’s fans—the new ones and the already-established-ones—engaged long after they’ve closed the books.

From Cliff Neilsen, illustrator:

Creating the cover to a novel is an exciting task. I get to work with really smart people (like Russell Gordon and Karen Wojtyla) that admire beauty and strive for originality. I get a chance to selfishly explore my artistic interests. I get an opportunity to be the first person to investigate and describe visually the world that sprouts from the creative heart of the author.

Cassandra Clare’s stories are special because her heart is special. Her words beautifully interweave the wonder and excitement of youth with myth, cultural history and mysticism. She makes them the popular culture.

So much work went into creating these covers. The process includes combining traditional mixed media painting, digital painting, photography, 3D rendering, found objects, and calligraphy. I’m passionate about these things, but the STORY is the true King. A good illustrator will understand that, above all else. Nevertheless, with this project I found myself asking “What drives the King”? What is the purpose of the story?

Emotion.

Reimagining these covers has been an exercise in trying to capture that emotion through iconography. It has been an attempt to personally connect with these beloved characters and their fictional lives, and share it as a visual parable to the throngs of Cassandra’s fans, past present and future. I hope you experience them with as much wonder and joy as I had creating them.

UPDATE

Cassandra Clare said that

The new paperbacks will come complete with maps of London and a forward by me about writing the trilogy.

and she also shared the spine art:

These new paperbacks will be published on September 1.

Cassandra Clare talks new ‘The Mortal Instruments’ covers

Yesterday the social media pages of Shadowhunters TV revealed the repackaged covers of Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments and today Cassie has taken to tumblr to talk about the new covers. Since we’ve already shared the book covers, we’ve only included the spine art which looks incredible!

I love these [covers] — I have great fondness for the old covers, but it was time for a change, and these feel fresh and new to me, cleanly designed, and with each character seeming frozen in a moment of story.

City of Bones: Jace

City of Ashes: Clary

City of Glass: Simon

City of Fallen Angels: Isabelle

City of Lost Souls: Alec

City of Heavenly Fire: Sebastian/Jonathan

At the bottom you can see the spine art — it stretches across the spines of all the books; each has a piece, and when they are placed together, you can see the whole picture.

Any Shadowhunters going to BookCon NYC this year? If so, stop by the S&S booth #2620 @11:00 each day to get your limited-edition poster featuring the new spine art from the TMI repackages coming September 1st!

Cliff Nielsen and Russell Gordon did great jobs, kudos to them!

Stay tuned for the new The Infernal Devices covers which will be revealed later today!

‘Shadowhunters’ to start filming on May 25!

Shadowhunters banner
Exciting news, Shadowhunters! After finding our female lead in Kat McNamara, executive producer McG has just tweeted when Shadowhunters will start principal photography:

That’s less than 3 weeks. I’m so thrilled that everything is working out and that the fandom is getting a second chance to see our beloved book series on the small screen.

Filming will take place in Toronto.

Shadowhunters is scheduled to air early next year on ABC Family.

Cassandra Clare shares a new ‘Lady Midnight’ snippet and talks about ARCs

TDA

We’ve got a release date – March 8, 2016 in case you haven’t heard – and now we have a brandnew snippet for Cassandra Clare’s Lady Midnight, the first book in her new The Dark Artifices trilogy! In this new snippet Cristina thinks about Diego Rosales and their relationship when they were younger:

Not since she’d left home had Cristina so clearly and painfully remembered what they had been to each other when they were younger. How much she had loved Diego. Her heart had felt torn to pieces when he cried out for his brother, pleading with him. Jaime, Jaime, ayúdame. Help me. And then he had cried out for her, and that was worse. Cristina, no me dejes. Regresa.

Cristina, don’t leave me. Come back. I love you.

I’m here, she’d told him. Not gone. She remembered him asking if there was someone else …

Well, this is certainly something for the Cristina x Diego shippers and makes us really curious what happened between these two – especially when you also read this previous snippet.

Furthermore, Cassie answered a question about Lady Midnight ARCs (Advanced Reading Copies):

They’ll be available in October. There are going to be very few, and there will be no e-copies on things like Edelweiss and Netgalley. But there will be physical ones, and there will be giveaway contests, etc, that I’ll keep you up to date with.

As soon as we know more about ARCs we will let you know!

Catch up with all the snippets from The Dark Artifices here.
