I didn’t add the Symbolic dream of symbology, because it was stupid and it basically did everything to spoil the later plot point of Simon turning into a vampire and to emphasize once again the stupid love triangle between Jace, Clary, and Simon. And unlike Das Mervin, I do not have the patience to analyze that bullshit without losing my shit and I have bigger fish to fry, like this passage. I’m really going to break it down so you can get a more in-depth look at how horrible this whole scene really was:
So, after Clary let a vulnerable Simon be kicked out of the Institute without even trying to protest that they were all leaving him unprotected (which as Shadowhunters is a direct violation of their own purpose), all because she was jealous that she didn’t have Simon’s undivided attention. So Clary walks away, she just is walking aimlessly angsting over the fact that she no longer has Simon’s undivided attention when she collapses just right there in the middle of the hallway and has this symbolic dream of symbology.
I just have no words, seriously it’s just that stupid. I mean at least Bella Swan had the decency to be actually in bed to have her ridiculous dreams of symbology but Clary is determined to outdo Bella in all things apparently. And after she collapses, Jace instead of getting Hodge so he could give her medical attention (because collapsing like that is not normal) Jace (who continues to act like the dumb jock stereotype he is) basically just puts her to bed and leaves. So this whole scene is just idiocy stacked upon even more idiocy.
