Show your support and vote for Clary in the YA tournament of heroines! Remember, without Clary there would be no Jace. ;) Also, if Clary wins, I’ve agreed to write the greenhouse scene from CoB from Jace’s point of view…StuckinBooks.com represents Clary in the 'Tournament of Heroines.' Check out what they had to say about our fierce redheaded Shadowhunter below:
Fiercely loyal & driven to help those she loves From City of Bones - Clary felt suddenly annoyed. "When the self-congratulatory part of the evening is over, maybe we could get back to saving my best friend from being exsanguinated to death?"From City of Bones - "I don't want tea," said Clary, with muffled force. "I want to find my mother. And then I want to find out who took her in the first place, and I want to kill them.
Feisty & independent - she doesn't put up with anyone's um ... you knowFrom City of Bones - "I was ninety percent sure." "I see," Clary said. There must have been something in her voice, because he turned to look at her. Her hand cracked across his face, a slap that rocked him back on his heels. He put a hand to his cheek, more in surprise than pain. "What the hell was that for?" "The other ten percent," she said, and they rode the rest of the way down to the street in silence."From City of Ashes - "Hey Baby." "Baby? You're kidding me, right?" "I was trying it out. No?" "No."
Funny & great to have around
From City of Bones – “Don’t touch any of my weapons without my permission.”
“Well, there goes my plan for selling them all on eBay,” Clary muttered.
“Selling them on what?” Clary smiled blandly at him. “A mythical place of great magical power.”From City of Bones – “I figured all your classes were stuff like Slaughter 101 and Beheading for Beginners.”Jace flipped a page. “Very funny, Fray.”
Figures it out when everyone else gives up
“Because I heard them all calling out different names,” Jocelyn said softly. “But I still saw you.”
From City of Fallen Angels – Not to be outdone, Clary slid her hands under the hem of his soaked shirt, and let her fingers explore what was underneath: the tight, hot skin over his ribs, the ridges of his abdomen, the scars on his back. This was uncharted territory for her, but it seemed to be driving him crazy: he was moaning softly against her mouth, kissing her harder and harder, as if it would never be enough, not quite enough —.Fierce & Fights for what she loves
From City of Glass – “Is this the part where you say if I hurt her, you’ll kill me?” “No” Simon said, “If you hurt Clary she’s quite capable of killing you herself. Possibly with a variety of weapons.”
From City of Glass Jace – “And then I met you. You were a mundane. Weak. Not a fighter. Never trained. And then I saw how much you loved your mother, loved Simon, and how you’d walk into hell to save them. you did walk into a vampire hotel. Shadowhunters with a decade of experience wouldn’t have tried that. Love didn’t make your weak; it made you stronger than anyone I’d ever met.”
Firm hold on herselfFrom City of Glass, right after Jace yells at her – “When you told me the first time that Valentine was your father, I didn’t believe it,” she said. “Not just because I didn’t want it to be true, but because you weren’t anything like him. I’ve never thought you were anything like him. But you are. You are.”
Flair for making new or stronger runes
From City of Ashes – “The completed Fearless rune was a matrix of strongly swirling lines: a rune as bold and aerodynamic as an eagle. She tore the page free and held it up so the others could see it.”From City of Glass – “She squeezed her eyelids shut and, against the darkness behind the them, began to draw with her mine in curving lines of light. Lines that spoke to her of doorways, of being carried on whirling air, of travel and faraway places. The lines came together in a rune as grateful as a bird in flight. She didn’t know if it was a rune that had existed before or one she had invented, but it existed now as if it always had.”
So I enjoyed Die for Me by Amy Plum but Kate was not the reason why. Vincent was my favorite character in that book. Kate was a puzzle to me. She’s withdrawn, even sullen and not pro-active. It’s been seven months since her parents death and while I understand it’s hard for her, she is still hiding away not dealing. Clary would never do that!Last point – Clary gets Jace’s vote! Nough said.
From City of Glass – “There is no pretending,” Jace said with absolute clarity. “I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there is life after that, I’ll love you then.”
