Jesus, why do everyone in this series has to be a fucking hypocrite? Seriously, Clary bitched Isabelle out for ‘allowing’ Simon to get a drink at Magnus’s party in ‘City of Bones’. Yet, it obvious that Clary hasn’t learned anything at all about drinking or eating anything from a Downworlder.
And yeah, some of you would say that I’m being too harsh on Clary because she is obviously being affected by Seelies’s charm and glamor. However, this also makes me ask a question why didn’t Jace and Isabelle try to protect Clary by branding a rune on her?
Meliorn pretty much implied that was usually standing operation procedure for Shadowhunters when visiting The Seelie realm.
He shrugged. “I am used to mortals who are easily swayed by our faerie glamours; not so the Nephilim. I thought you had protections.”
“She does,” Jace said, meeting Meliorn’s jade green gaze with his own.
I said this earlier this week, but it bears repeating: Why didn’t Jace and Isabelle properly prepare the others for this trip to the Seelie realm? They only told Clary and Simon the bare basics about this trip and nothing else. As you can see later on in the text when they interact with the Queen, it’s very easy to commit a quite literal fatal faux pas when interacting with the Seelies.
