As if she were still in the dream, she reached for the Portal. A bright light spread under
the touch of her angers, a door opening onto a lighted place beyond. She found herself
staring into a whirling golden maelstrom that slowly began to coalesce into discernible
shapes—she thought she could see the outline of mountains, a piece of sky—
“Clary!” It was Luke, racing up the path, his face a mask of anger and dismay. Behind him
strode Magnus, his cat eyes shining like metal in the hot Portal light that bathed the garden.
“Clary, stop! The wards are dangerous! You’ll get yourself killed!”
But there was no stopping now. Beyond the Portal the golden light was growing. She
thought of the gold walls of the Hall in her dream, the golden light refracting o the cut
glass everywhere. Luke was wrong; he didn’t understand her gift, how it worked—what did
wards matter when you could create your own reality just by drawing it? “I have to go,” she
cried, moving forward, her fingertips outstretched. “Luke, I’m sorry—”

Chapter 2: The Demon Towers of Alicante
Again, I said back in Chapter 1, but I’m going to repeat it: Clary Fray is a fucking psychopath! Honestly, cares that unstable portal would interact with the strong wards of the Institue. What it acts like a bomb and it not only injures herself, but everyone including Luke, Magnus, and all the people in the surrounding area? Does Clary ever consider that? Nope, Clary Fray is going to get her way by creating this unnecessary portal because Clary Fray gets what Clary Fray wants.
Honestly, Clary is the Veruca Salt of this series and there is nothing you can say to me to prove otherwise. And what makes this all worse is that no one is probably going to call her on this. There will probably no long-lasting consequences for Clary from Luke (her supposedly surrogate father) or The Clave.
True to form, Clary will probably get away with it because she’s the author’s self-insert and head mary sue. The head sue gets to do whatever she wants no matter what horrendous actions she does.
Honestly, Clary and Jace are fucking made for each other, a pshycopath and sociopath destined to be together forever.
