Welcome back, you guys! I hope you are all rested up, and had a wonderful Easter weekend or enjoyed the end of Passover. Or just enjoyed the long weekend. Before I get to the sporking, I have an announcement to make! Since this officially the halfway point in the book, both my bad-ass editor. Melissa, and I have decided that we needed a break to prepare for the barrage of fuckery that will be surely in store for us in the second half of City of Ashes. Yet don’t worry, we will back! Our break will take place from April 24th – May 8th!
Now that I got that announcement out of the way, let’s get started with the sporking shall we?
Clary just played herself, and it’s hilarious to me, because once again Cassandra Clare does everything to prove my earlier points. Simon and Clary’s relationship was clearly a sham. They never officially broke up, so technically they are still boyfriend and girlfriend. However, Clary not even once really considers their romantic relationship during this chapter. Oh, Clary says she feels guilty, but she never once seems to realize what the real problem that Simon had with Clary kissing Jace: She cheated on him with Jace right in front of him.
The cherry on the top this fuckery, is that she only refers to him as her ‘friend’ throughout this entire chapter Thus proving my point: Clary was never really emotionally invested in her and Simon’s so-called relationship, at all. I have always said, that their relationship consists of extreme infatuation bordering on obsession on Simon’s end, and emotional manipulation on Clary’s end.
I’m going to repeat what I said at the beginning of their ‘romantic relationship’. For Clary, her not disagreeing with Simon when he called her his girlfriend, way back in Part I was emotional prostitution. If Clary gives in and gives Simon the romantic relationship he wants, he will continue to worship the ground she walks on. It’s very clear to me that like most Mary Sue self-inserts, Clary needs to be worshiped, or she will clearly crumble.
So yeah, all of this? Proves that Clary and Simon never had a real relationship at all.
