And we’re back! So this is basically Clary and Jace’s first date. And what a romantic date it is! It’s on her sweet sixteenth birthday, having a romantic moonlight picnic in the greenhouse with a very hot guy. Apparently, Jace and Clary even have time to talk about the flowers and plants. Now, normally I wouldn’t have a problem with this exchange except for one major issue:
YOUR MOTHER IS IN A MAGICAL COMA AND HAS BEEN TAKEN BY AN MEGALOMANIAC HOMICIDAL MAD MAN BENT ON COMMITTING MASS GENOCIDE!!!
Clary even admits that she isn’t thinking about her mother on her birthday. You would think that Clary at some point would think on all things she and her mother have done in the past to celebrate her birthday. You would think that she would be sad and maybe a little depressed because her mother is gone and Valentine could have done anything to her prone body.
Nope! Clary is only concerned about Jace, and the fucking flowers. I know that teenagers can be short-sighted, and selfish sometimes, but Jesus “Tap Dancing Christ” this takes the freaking cake! Clary Fray has to be the most self-centered, self-righteous, and manipulative character I have come ever across. I really don’t understand how people, especially after reading these two snippets can honestly say that Clarissa ‘Clary’ Fray really gives a shit about anyone, but herself.
