I think even Buffy from ‘Buffy: The Vampire Slayer’ would be shaking her head in dismay at these fuckers. No one knows how Vampires turn humans? Nobody? You can’t enforce the law, IF YOU DON’T KNOW NOTHING ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE ENFORCING! The Shadowhunters are supposed to protect humans from demons and rogue Downworlders, but they have no idea how to recognize if a human has been turned.
You guys know I went off about this earlier this week, but I have to ask again why are they are even Shadowhunters when the Shadowhunters seem to KNOW OR DO ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING?! As you guys can see this frustrates the hell out of me to no end! Everybody in this damn book is just unnecessary incompetent. And you the cherry on the top of this complete idiocy is that Clare could have easily fixed this with one or two sentences. All she had to do make it seem that Clary (as the newbie Shadowhunter) knows nothing about Vampires. Then Jace and the others could have explained to her about the turning process.
There! The audience is informed of the new mythology and your protagonists don’t look complete and utter dumbasses— problem solved!
