All of this is just so damn cliché and overdone and mary-suetastic that I literally snorted out my tea while I reading these two snippets. Seriously, re-read the first snippet, and honestly try to tell me you don’t get this image in your head while you’re reading it
Now I have to ask: Why did Valentine go through the effort of knocking her out and then lovingly dressing her in a long white nightdress? Just think about it okay? Valentine needed The Mortal Cup, and he thinks that Jocelyn is the only one who knows the location of the cup. So wouldn’t it be more logical for him to leave Jocelyn conscious so he can force her into telling him where the cup is?
I also have to question Valentine’s use of the chains. If Valentine put her in a drug-induced coma, then why would he need to chain Jocelyn to the bed in the first place? It’s not like Jocelyn can instantly wake up and run away. And if Valentine was indeed worried about that possibility, then why did he leave her door open?
And it would be one thing if Valentine was afraid of being found by Luke and The Clave. And Valentine was worried that they would take Jocelyn away from him. But it becomes pretty obvious later on in the chapter, that Valentine was taken completely off guard by this attack.
So in the end,none of this makes sense, and all of this is just some barely disgusted fap material for Cassandra Clare because why should she stop at one self-insert?
