I mentioned earlier today that Cassandra Clare was once again cribbing from Stephanie Meyer. This is another example of that because this shit right here is straight out of Meyer’s playbook. Clary is pretending to play the martyr without really confronting how she really contributed to this whole situation. What this pity party is really about is to ostensibly to make Clary look selfless and Bella Swan was notorious for doing that. This is why I named this post after my sporking hero, Das Mervin’s most notorious sporking count: I’M SELFLESS DAMNNIT!
Also, Clary (and by extension) Cassandra Clare is trying to tell us how guilty she feels, it’s really funny how all her thoughts are mostly about Jace. Like back in Chapter 10, this is supposed about Simon and Clary’s relationship and about the supposedly ‘hard’ choice that Clary just made. But no, once again everything is overshadowed by Clary and Jace’s soap opera drama.
