Cassandra Clare conducts brief character Q & A

Cassandra Clare conducted a short character Q & A around midnight.

Cassandra Clare treated her Twitter followers to a special midnight character Q & A, something that has become quite popular with fans. Fans are allowed to ask "The Mortal Instruments" and "The Infernal Devices" characters a question and that character answers. Clare allowed her Twitter followers to ask one question per character (but that rule quickly became void). Essentially every character (minus a couple) was represented. Be aware that some of the questions asked include spoilers from "City of Fallen Angels," so if you haven't read it yet STOP READING:

“Church, why weren’t you in COFA? I miss you!” (@wwafflee)

-“Asleep in the attic. I will return in the next volume.”

“Will, are you attracted to someone you don’t think you should like?” (@Sarah_Beth_09)


“Jace, did you not know about the protective runes/spells put on Shadowhunter babies?” (@TMIexaminer)

-Yes, I did, but I never connected that to coming back from the dead.”

“Izzy, where do you buy your makeup?” (@MissChevusBooks)


“Iz: are you willing to give Simon a 2nd chance?” (@pixiedust515)

-“If he behaves himself.”

“Sebastian- do you feel the need for revenge on Jace?” (@CreativityIsKey)

-“Not at all. We’re good friends now.”

“Jordan/Kyle: Did you know we’re totally in love with you now?”

-“I knew this joining a band thing would work 4 me. Who are you again?”

“Kyle, will you ever forgive yourself for what you did to Maia?” (@LeesLuckyHat)

“Clary: is there anything you wouldn’t do to save Jace and ur love for each other?”

-“I’d like to think I wouldn’t do something really evil.”

“Seelie Queen, do you dislike Jace and Clary as a couple?”

“Magnus, if you could make Alec immortal, would you?”

-“No, I wouldn’t.”

“Eric: Can I be your new girlfriend?”

-“Real-life Eric is married to my best friend so not sure I can give him away.”

“Alec, if it’s possible would you want to be immortal so you could be with Magnus forever?”
