So Alec and Isabelle are supposed to the people closest to Jace, and yet it’s pretty clear by this passage that they obviously don’t’ give a shit about him.Hell, Alec is so supposed to be Jace’s paratabi, and they are both cool as a cucumber. I know for sure that I would be shitting bricks at the thought of any of my sisters being sent to jail or prison and my sisters and I don’t have the closest of relationships. Yet, Clary is the only one who is freaking out.
Again, why is Cassandra Clare apparently totally incapable of writing at even one healthy relationship?
Moving on from that, here is another so-called love triangle I hate in these books. Alec/Jace/Clary. First of all, Alec is his brother in all but blood, second of all, it really seems Alec’s romantic feelings for Jace is only superficial. Honestly, I don’t think Alec’s jealousy is due to him being in love with Jace. I personally think that Alec hates her because a) Clary was raised a mundane and b) because Clary brought so much chaos into their life.
And yeah, that is all speculation on my part, but honestly, that makes way more sense than this weird love triangle between Alec/Jace/Clary.
