If this is the way Clary treats her best friend, no wonder she only has one friend. Seriously, I didn’t quote the earlier interactions in this book its because I felt that this passage right here already sums up quiet well why Clary is a horrible person.
Some people would say, “Oh she told Jace to knock it off, so she’s isn’t a horrible friend.” First of all, I want you take a good look at this part of the passage:
Yeah, she would have meanly pleased that Jace humiliated her best friend, because she was jealous of all the attention Simon was giving Isabelle. Does that sound like something a best friend, a friend period would think? You also notice how long it took for Clary to actually speak it up. Also, this is not the first time Clary has allowed Jace to talk shit about Simon. He’s been talking shit about Simon since the moment he first saw the other boy. Yet, Clary has never stopped him. If it had been me in Clary’s place, I would have immediately told Jace to go straight to hell, and kept on rolling. I don’t play that shit at all when it comes to other people dissing my friends.
I also want point out how when Simon talks shit about Jace, Clary is quick to get on his case about it . However, when it’s the other away around, it takes her forever to tell Jace to stop. Such a wonderful friend Clary is, isn’t she? My advice to Simon is to turn right around and walk out and never come back. In my opinion, there has to be better people to be friends with other than Clary Fray, and I sure as hell wouldn’t be risking my life for someone like her.
