A Statement from TMI Source and Fangirlish About Current Events in the TMI Fandom

Shadowhunters banner

The events that have occurred over the past few days in The Mortal Instruments fandom are some of the hardest things that we have ever had to witness. It has been very hard and disturbing to watch.

We have remained silent because we could not think of what to do that would not make things worse.

It is true that we have been openly critical of the scripts for the Shadowhunters TV show and have even posted open letters to the show creators. This was a very controversial move in fandom, and we understand that there are many who feel that we should have kept our negativity to ourselves. We respect that opinion but believe that posting our opinions about what we had read was valuable to the fandom. After all, we are not the only fansites with scripts and sides, and we felt that this way fans who were interested would be able to access a variety of opinions.

We also believed we owed the fans honesty. We have never lied to this fandom. We have never said we read a script we did not read, and giving opinions on script drafts is not, as we have seen people suggest, “lying.” It is just giving opinions on early script drafts. There is no such thing as a final draft in television, changes will be made up until the last day of shooting, so there is no other way to be able to give opinions. Drafts are all that exist.

We have not ever or will never condone hate and violence. We did at one point link to a tumblr post about ourselves that was full of hate — we then realized it was a reblog, and apologized to the girl whose tumblr we referenced. We mended fences with her, and sincerely meant nothing against her – rather the hate in the post. And as we have said to the owner of that tumblr, we are sorry. We did not threaten her and if any of our followers did, we do not condone that. Unfortunately, due to the events of the past few days – we have blocked several people.  That is not “bullying.” It is keeping ourselves safe. Sending threats and violence over twitter is not okay and we will not interact with that.

The entire fight that is currently happening seems to stem from one tumblr belonging to one person. We have read her posts about us. They are libel. There are no links, no screenshots, and no messages in existence that show us threatening anyone. We also cannot, as this person has suggested, pass along all of our criticism of the TV show scripts to the show runner personally, because we do not have his personal information. The suggestion that we could is ridiculous. It also undercuts our desire to be honest with fans, public and straightforward.

We have never had any intention of harming the fandom, or of harming the television show. Indeed, we retain a good relationship with the show’s staff on social media. We do not think criticism of media is destructive or hurtful. We think it is a necessary part of interacting with media, period. It is also what we consider responsible. When we saw what seemed to us to be sexual assault by a beloved character in a draft, we felt that to not call it out would not be responsible. And we know that it is partly because we did that it has been removed.

What saddens us the most is that demands by a small portion of the fandom that Cassandra Clare punish us publicly (despite the fact that when she interacts with fansites about issues, she has always done so privately) or shun us in public for things we did not do have driven her off of twitter. We hope that she will someday return, and that this debacle will not cost us the fanart, sneak peeks, and answers to questions that we once had. No television show — and that’s all this is about — is worth that.

We are happy to mend fences with anyone who feels hurt by us. That was never our intention. We really hope that this fandom can come together and move forward. We have all worked too hard and too long and supported this fandom, and we all deserve better.

We will continue to report on what we know, and to give opinions on what we see. We understand that there will always be people who disagree. We hope they will lift their voices up, rather than trying to silence ours.

This is the last time we will comment on this situation.

Merry Christmas, Shadowhunters!

Happy Holidays from my favourite parabatai-to-be <3Clary and Simon are from The Mortal Instruments by cassandraclare

Merry Christmas, Shadowhunters from your friends at TMI Source!

We hope that you got amazing (Shadowhunter-related) gifts and that you are now having a wonderful and peaceful time with everyone you love.

If you received any Shadowhunter-related gifts or if you do have a Christmas tree that looks like it could be straight from one of the Institutes, share your story or photos below in the comments or share them with us on Twitter!

Since the time before Christmas was really busy, we totally missed two snippets that Cassie posted on her tumblr (ops).

Let’s have a look and happy holidays:

“I don’t know,” Mark said, looking down at his own long pale fingers tangled in the little boy’s brown curls. “He just – Julian left, and Tavvy fell asleep on my lap.”

He sounded amazed, wondering.

“Of course he did,” Cristina said. “He’s your brother. He trusts you.”

“Nobody trusts a Hunter,” Mark said.

Lady Midnight snippet

Simon could barely believe any of his new memories, but the idea that Isabelle Lightwood had been his girlfriend seemed more unbelievable than the fact vampires were real and Simon had been one.

Recap of ‘A morning with Cassandra Clare’ in London

A morning with Cassandra Clare

On June 7, Shadowhunters from England but also Central Europe traveled to London to see Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan. Despite the rain, Cassie’s fans gathered in front of Prince Charles Cinema close to Leicester Square long before the event started at a little past 11 am.

Cassie and Sarah both looked fabulous and first took a selfie with the crowd.


From @WalkerBooksUK

As usual they both knew how to entertain the fans and kicked the event off with reading Magnus’s voicemails to a rapt audience. After that it was time for the Q & A where lots of cool and exciting things were revealed. I’ve picked out the most interesting parts, for example news about the Simon short stories and the City of Ashes movie. If you want to read the whole Q & A  then head to our friends from Page to Premiere.


Q: In your description for your new trilogy of books, you said that Emma was the best Shadowhunter since Jace, what does that mean exactly? Does Jace somehow become a much worse Shadowhunter?

Cassie: Yes, Jace just starts to suck, he’s terrible. Actually, hilariously, that was a piece of ad copy that was written by my publisher. I gave them a general overall description of what the book was like and they wrote that bit about her being the best fighter since Jace. […]

I had written that Emma looked up to Jace and wanted to be like him and that she wanted to be the pre-emptive Shadowhunter of her generation. Like Jace had been the pre-emptive Shadowhunter of his generation and probably still is. But they’re different generations; all it means is that she looks up to him and she wants to be like him. She wants to be the toughest and she wants to be the bravest and she wants to kill the most demons. […] It was never meant to be a dark portent of Jace’s future and he doesn’t actually get any worse at Shadowhunting.

In the end of City of Heavenly Fire Magnus writes or gives Alec a book with all his bits and bobs in, I was wondering if that was any link to The Bane Chronicles?

So yes, Magnus does give Alec a book in City of Heavenly Fire, I don’t think that this is that big of a spoiler. He says, “This is the story of my life” and it is supposed to be The Bane Chronicles, so it’s like a book within a book. It’s a nod to The Bane Chronicles if you’ve read them, if not it still has the same meaning, that he has finally decided that Alec should know the whole story of his life and you know the important things that happened to him.

Was City of Heavenly Fire always going to be that ending? Or did you plan for an alternative ending?

No, it was definitely always going to be that ending, I had planned for that since the beginning. I won’t say as far back as City of Bones because when I wrote City of Bones I thought I was writing a trilogy and then a series of spin offs and it turned into a trilogy and a second half of a trilogy. But from the minute that I wrote out what was going to happen in City of Fallen Angels, Lost Souls and Heavenly Fire, that was what was going to happen, it stuck pretty exactly to the plan. I don’t think there were any major deviations at all. […] I changed some details, but I’d say that I always know where I start and always know where I’m gonna end up.

As a massive fan I was just wondering when filming is going to start for City of Ashes? Do you know if Jamie will still be playing Jace? [From Page to Premiere because my memory card was full]

I don’t know, I would think so. I would personally be surprised if they didn’t have him. They had to completely redo the entire screenplay, which takes a long time but believe me you wanted that screenplay redone! I will tell you one thing that is, Clary split into 2 people that both looked like her and had a shovel fight with one another. (Sarah Brennan) Oh and of course Magnus running for mayor of New York. (Cassie) I thought you liked when Jace rode the mermaid! The cast was never the issue, the script was the issue but I have been told that I would hear from them in the next couple of weeks! I mean he (Magnus) would make a great mayor in principle but a race of peoples entire reason for being is to hide themselves from Mundanes, probably running for mayor isn’t a good idea.

What do you miss most about The Mortal Instruments and will the characters from The Mortal Instruments be in other books?

I miss writing about the characters from The Mortal Instruments, definitely. I feel like their story has come to an end. There’s sadness about saying goodbye to them while they’re still evolving and changing. Certainly the surviving characters from Mortal Instruments will appear in The Dark Artifices so they’ll be in their twenties cause The Dark Artifices is taking place about five or 6 years later so we’ll get to see people getting married, having kids, getting jobs. While I’m sad to say goodbye to their teenage selves I’m excited to interact with their adult selves.

I’ve got a question about Simon. At one of the previous events you said you were going to write short stories about Simon, are they going to be like The Bane Chronicles? Are there any plans yet? Obviously you can’t tell us the plot, but are there any plans on how the short stories are going to be published? [As a Simon fan I was obligated to ask this]

They’re going to be like The Bane Chronicles. Same authors, so we really missed doing The Bane Chronicles and we loved it and we actually had an idea to do a second round of them. […] It’s not like The Bane Chronicles in that it focuses solely on Simon because Simon hasn’t lived for four hundred years, he’s got less vast historical experiences. It’s such an enormous spoiler that I’m having a hard time describing it. He would definitely be the main character/narrator figure, but then it also delves into Shadowhunter history. It involves stories about Will and Tessa, it involves stories about their kids, it involves stories about Emma and Julian, about Jace and Clary. It involves a certain story about a certain character’s stag night whose getting married and Simon is invited – (Sarah) Simon’s the organizer – and it’s like the worst stag party ever! (Sarah) Whereas somebody organizes the best hen night!
(Cassie) We’re very excited about doing it. Hopefully we’ll be able to put the details out soon, we’re holding off because they are spoilery for City of Heavenly Fire. It would be 10 stories, each story online and then made into a book and sold in a different version.
(Sarah) He really is the Mortal Instruments character with the most unfinished business.

I have a question about the Iron Sisters, are we gonna have a bit more about them?

Well, we do see a lot about the Silent Brothers because they are allowed to come out and mix with the Shadowhunters. They are the healers, they’re the archivists and the Iron Sisters specifically stay in the bound citadel. They don’t come out, only except they can have a visit from a Shadowhunter if it’s a woman. So you don’t see them much, because they don’t get out much. But they’re really interesting to me and we’ll definitely see more of them. They’re more important in The Last Hours and also there is a moment in City of Heavenly Fire where Luke says his mother was an Iron Sister and that’s important later.

After the Q & A, Cassie and Sarah signed books (and also faces) before I sat down with Cassie for an exclusive interview which will be online shortly.

Thank you to Walker Books and Waterstones for once again hosting such a fantastic event!



Goodreads interview with Cassandra Clare

cassie clare headshotA month ago, goodreads offered readers that rated one of Cassandra Clare’s books with 5 stars the chance to ask Cassie one question for their May Young Adult newsletter. The newsletter was published today and 13 great questions were picked by the goodreads team.

You can read excerpts from the interview below:

Eliza: How do you come up with all the sarcastic comments that make the Herondale boys who they are?

I am sarcastic, and some of my friends are sarcastic, so I’m well-equipped with a sarcasm incubation chamber. But then the characters themselves are also responsible. They each have their own senses of humor, and they come up with things that surprise me all the time!

People LOVE Magnus! We had a few different questions about him! Trevor O’reilly: What was the inspiration that led to the creation of Magnus Bane? He’s an awesome character with his own attitude and eccentric personality that’s always with him, no matter when or where he is.

Magnus came from multiple sources. Part of it was my desire to play with the idea of wizards and warlocks. We tend to think of them as Dumbledore types, very wise and old with long white beards. (In fact, sometimes people still say to me they picture Magnus as having a long scraggy beard, because he’s a warlock!) So I was trying to get at the opposite of that. I wanted to create an ancient warlock mentor figure who was also a guy who threw parties, who wore glitter and leather pants, who hid his wisdom under a party-boy facade. I never expected him to grow so important, he’d have his own book, but I’m very glad he did.


TheBookAddictedGirl: OK, I’m just as much dreading City of Heavenly Fire as I am freaking desperate for it…therefore: Can you give us an estimate about how crushed/destroyed/dead-inside City of Heavenly Fire will leave us? You know, in terms of: How long will I lie in the fetal position on my bed, comatose and beyond consolation; how many tubs of Ben & Jerry’s PhishFood ice cream will I need to eat; how many episodes of Friends/Big Bang Theory/How I Met Your Mother will I need to watch to cheer myself up; how long will I be unable to even consider picking up another book, knowing just how freaking scarred and heartbroken CoHF left me?

I posted about this on my tumblr recently. I have said that six people whose names we know will die in City of Heavenly Fire. (And there was a big banner that said WHO WILL SURVIVE across the teaser cover, but to be fair, I didn’t come up with that one!) I can see how that would be nerve-racking. I feel like there’s been a lot of character death floating around in various media lately, and I have been seeing much agony about it. Which I totally understand because character death often sends me off to bed with a fluffy cat and an ice pack.

Here’s what I can say about CoHF: I do think all the deaths matter. None of them happens for shock value or no reason or to get across the message that death is random and terrible. My goal is not to destroy lives or drown anyone in a bucket of feels, just to tell an enjoyable story and create an end point that hopefully people will feel does justice to the story that came before. I don’t want anyone to feel jerked around. I want things to feel earned and meaningful. I am not a fan of nihilism (bad things happen for no reason without a glimmer of hope)—which is not really an overall judgment call on nihilism, just a preference. The ending is not a despairing one. I believe in hope! I really do.

Radhika: Did you cry in any chapter? And if so, what was it called?

I cried a bit in the epilogue, but that was because I had to say good-bye to everyone as a writer. I don’t know if you’ll cry!

Clockwork Princess First EditionThe final installment of The Infernal Devices had fans terrified months prior to reading it and the final product didn’t disappoint. Clockwork Princess debuted at No. 1 in not only Young Adult fiction but fiction in general selling 90,000 copies in the U.S. in its first week.

2. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones teaser posterThe film adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s bestselling novel hit theaters on August 21 and DVD on December 3.

3. Three more Shadowhunter Chronicles series on the way

The Dark Artifices: Lady MidnightWe already know about The Dark Artifices, the sequel series set five years after the events of The Mortal Instruments coming in March 2015), but Cassandra Clare revealed that she plans to write two more series set in the Shadowhunter world: TLH (set in 1901, and involving James Herondale among others) and TWP (set following The Dark Artifices).

4. The Bane Chronicles debuts
