So this proves without a doubt that this scene is just filler, and yet another example of Clare padding her word count. Dorothea already stated back in Chapter 7 that Clary has a mental block that was repressing her memories. So this scene is just needless repetition. I really think that this scene, in particular, should have been cut. I’m an Artist, and far from being a professional editor, but even I know that the first half of this chapter should have been at the end of Chapter Nine, and then Chapter Ten should had begun with Clary going to the City of Bones and being introduced to The Silent Brothers. This scene is just pure filler, and all the scenes like this is just fucking up the pace of the entire book. I am just so tired of the pace. Seriously, I’m just fed up with how a good majority of this book is just boring infodumps and filler. And I had it up to here with the way Cassandra Clare just cuts the chapters willy-nilly, and without any rhyme or reason. I’m bored, and I just want something entertaining to happen!
