So it comes down this: Werewolves. vs, Vampires. *yawn* Bored now! Seriously, though this is so unoriginal and ‘Twilight’ has killed this trope to a bloody death. But you know what? In the hands of a good writer, I might have brought this if was written correctly.
However, just like every time, Clare writes in a piece of worldbuilding that makes zero sense once you start to take it apart. For example, Maia just said that Werewolves hatred for Vampires is instinctive. So instinctive, that now Simon is a vampire, he will eventually hate Luke even though he has known Luke all of his life.
Yet, I would like to remind everyone how Luke and Raphael were very cordial with each other back in Maryse’s office in Chapter 3. It could be explained by Maryse’s presence, but let’s keep it real, none of the Downworlders really give a shit what the Shadowhunters really think despite how many times Clare tells us otherwise.
Also, I would like to point out that Simon hasn’t shown any hint of aversion to Luke in the slightest. Actually, I would further point out that Simon has only shown any real indication that he’s been struggling with his sudden vampirism. He’s quick to tell us about how he dreams about blood, but we really don’t seem him freak out about it.
So in the end, I once again call bullshit. And what makes this really said, is that this could have been another decent plot point that Clare has shoved aside in favor of her dry ass hell soap opera romance.
