You guys know I hate Clary and Simon’s relationship, and you might have thought that I was being unjustly biased. This, though? This proves without a shadow of a doubt that everything I have always said about Simon and Clary’s relationship is true. When Clary is thinking about Jace, she shows more interest, hell more affection when she is just thinking about Jace. Seriously, compare this to Simon and Clary’s makeout scene and the proof is in the text.
So why are we going through this long, dry, boring love triangle? It makes no sense to keep this love triangle in the books other than for Clary (and by proxy Cassandra Clare) to have a sycophant to worship and moon after her.
