PicMonkey Collageseelie queen

Over the past couple of months, The Mortal Instruments / The Infernal Devices fans have been treated to the sight of the amazing art work of Cassandra Jean, including her Shadwhunter-inspired Tarot Cards.

Cassandra as revealed that, thanks to a colaboration with Cassandra Jean, every day for the next 84 days she will be sharing the complete deck, which Jean has now completed, in order.

“Cassandra Jean has finished the complete Shadowhunter Tarot, so for the next … eighty-four? days I’ll be posting a card a day in order, from the first card to the last. Some will be under spoiler cuts; some you’ll have seen before — I’ll explain why each character has the card they have.”

 

Tarot Card #18 Seelie Queen and Meliorn

tumblr_mmyrqujpwd1r3oy4vo1_1280

“We’ve moved on from the Major Arcana to the minor Arcana — the first suit is the suit of Rings, which takes the place of the suit of Pentacles. The Ace of Rings shows Meliorn and the Seelie Queen: the rings are the gold leaf rings the Seelie Queen gives to Clary and Simon in Lost Souls so they can hear each other’s thoughts.

All the Rings in this suit are family rings except this card, and one other.”

Cassandra Clare Talks ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’ Movie and ‘Magisterium’ Series With Bookish

magisteriumOur friends from Bookish had the chance to sit down and talk with Miss Cassandra Clare about The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and the Magisterium series–that she’s co-writing with Holly Black in this new interview.

Bookish Interview:

“Ten years ago, Cassandra Clare was a “Harry Potter” and “Lord of the Rings” fan fiction writer. Now, she’s the bestselling author of “The Mortal Instruments”series, with the movie adaptation of the first novel, “City of Bones,” releasing in theaters August 23. Clare spoke with Bookish about the parts of “City of Bones” she was committed to keeping in the movie, the use of “mundane” in both her books and pop culture, her forthcoming “Magisterium Series” with Holly Black and her blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo.”

CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL ARTICLE

Bookish: “The Mortal Instruments” has several more mature jokes and darker themes–a departure from a lot of YA, which keeps things fairly clean. How does that more mature sensibility translate to the movie?

Cassandra Clare: It’s interesting, because you never know how something is going to be digitally realized until the director puts it on film. [The movie’s] got a very dark sensibility–gritty urban fantasy, which I really like.

Bookish: Are there any scenes in particular you feel express that?

CC: Yeah! I think that they did a great job with Magnus Bane’s party. And also the club scene that opens the book, where Clary and Simon first go to [Pandemonium], the first time she sees the Shadowhunters. For me, urban fantasy has always been about the marriage of modernity and fantasy, and I think that captures it very well visually in the film.

Bookish: How did you feel about Lily Collins getting cast? She’s a great actress but doesn’t look a ton like how Clary’s described in the books–redheaded, freckled. Was that difficult to adjust to?

CC: Lily is the only one I wasn’t involved in casting; she was attached to the project when Sony picked it up. I went and watched “The Blind Side,” and really loved her [in it]. And she actually does have freckles! As a person who’s covered in freckles myself, it’s one of those things where… If you’re a star in Hollywood they cover up the freckles with foundation whenever you do photo shoots and everything. And I was so happy, because she got those freckles in there, and I think they’re completely cute. You can see them a bit.

We’re really lucky to have [Collins in “City of Bones”]. Not only is she in every project going on right now–she’s one of the hottest young actresses in Hollywood–but she really was a big fan of the books before she started on the project, so she brought a lot to Clary in that way. I think that the reason they didn’t dye her hair bright red was she’d had her hair dyed for four different movie roles before that. They were going back and forth, like, “We could have her wear a wig, or we could put a red rinse on her hair, but we can’t really do the bleaching and dyeing, or it’ll all fall out.” I figured, you know, as long as she could capture Clary’s bravery and vulnerability, that was more important to me than the exact shade of red for the hair.

Bookish: Right, pick your battles.

CC: Exactly. [laughs] I would’ve felt really bad if her hair had fallen out and it would’ve been my fault!

Bookish: When Jamie Campbell Bower was announced as Jace, many fans were up in arms at first. If you check Tumblr now, they seem like they’ve accepted him, but what was that like initially?

CC: It was probably hardest on Jamie. He talks about it in interviews, but he took things to heart. It made me think about what it must be like as an actor. Because if you’re a writer and you write a story that’s rejected–well, they rejected your story. But as an actor, if you’re being rejected in some way, they’re rejecting the whole of you. It must be really difficult.

When I saw the reaction, I thought, “Well, I was kind of braced for this.” Jace is supposed to be the embodiment of your fantasy, what the boyfriend would be based on all my favorite literary characters. He’s supposed to be incredibly talented and incredibly funny and good-looking, so everyone’s got their different idea of what that looks like. So, you just have to remember that this happened when they cast Robert Pattinson in “Twilight,” and when they cast Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth [in “The Hunger Games”].

Bookish: It’s definitely one of those “you know you’ve made it” moments, when people get that bent out of shape.

CC: Yes! It’s one of those things where [you think], “Well, I guess it’s a good thing in disguise.”

Bookish: You started out as a fanfic author, writing the “Very Secret Diaries” series for “Lord of the Rings.” What’s been the biggest adjustment for you since you’ve developed your own avid fanbase, having once been such a huge fan of someone else’s work?

CC: When I was a big fan of “Lord of the Rings” and whatnot, you kind of think of these creations as not having been created by a person so much as existing; they feel real to you. To be on the other side of it, you think, oh my gosh, these stories were created by just one person–in this case, me–and it’s strange. You’re like, “Oh, it’s not that it was created by a faceless conglomerate, it’s actually the work of individual people.” Also, having been a fan, I come to it sometimes from a fan’s perspective: “If I were a fan of this material, what would I want? Would I want to see scenes that were cut from the material? Would I want a sneak peek of the next book, or drawings of characters?”

Looks like great things await for miss Cassandra Clare and Miss Holly Black!!!! What you think? Are you excited for Miss Clare new projecs?? Sound off in the comments!

Tarot Card #16 Simon Lewis: The Daylighter

“Knocking off two here with the Sun card and the Moon card. The Sun becomes the Daylighter, Simon, and the Moon, for probably kind of obvious reasons, becomes the Lycanthropes, Maia and Jordan. I think Simon is leaning on a sundial. First I thought it was a tree trunk, but I’m pretty sure it’s a sundial. As it says on the sundial in Lost Souls, I only count the hours that shine.”

Cassandra Clare Takes Over Tumblr To Share ‘City of Heavenly Fire’ Snippet Featuring Characters From Dark Artifices

PicMonkey CollagecassieMiss Cassandra Clare took over her Tumblr page to share a spoilery snippet of the upcoming conclusion to the international bestselling The Mortal Instruments out early next year.

The snippet features new characters we’ll next see in The Dark Artifices, coming March 2015:

A moment later, Helen had returned; she was walking slowly now, and carefully, her hand on the back of a thin boy with a mop of wavy brown hair. He couldn’t have been older than twelve, and Clary recognized him immediately. Helen, her hand firmly clamped around the wrist of a younger boy whose hands were covered with blue wax. He must have been playing with the tapers in the huge candelabras that decorated the sides of the nave. He looked about twelve, with an impish grin and the same wavy, bitter-chocolate hair as his sister.

Jules, Helen had called him. Her little brother.

The impish grin was gone now. He looked tired and dirty and frightened. Skinny wrists stuck out of the cuffs of a white mourning jacket whose sleeves were too long for him. In his arms he was carrying a little boy, probably not more than two years old, with the same wavy brown hair that he had; it seemed to be a family trait. The rest of his family wore the same borrowed mourning clothes: following Julian was a brunette girl about ten, her hand firmly clasped in the hold of a boy the same age: the boy had a sheet of tangled black hair that nearly obscured his face. Fraternal twins, Clary guessed. After them came a girl who might have been eight or nine, her face round and very pale between brown braids.

The misery on their faces cut at Clary’s heart. She thought of her power with runes, wishing that she could create one that would soften the blow of loss. Mourning runes existed, but only to honor the dead, in the same way that love runes existed, like wedding rings, to symbolize the bond of love. You couldn’t make someone love you with a rune, and you couldn’t assuage grief with it, either. So much magic, Clary thought, and nothing to mend a broken heart.

“Julian Blackthorn,” said Jia Penhallow, and her voice was gentle. “Step forward, please.”

Julian swallowed and handed the little boy he was holding over to his sister. He stepped forward, his eyes darting around the room. He was clearly scouring the crowd for someone. His shoulders had just begun to slump when another figure darted out onto the stage. A girl, also about twelve, with a tangle of blond hair that hung down around her shoulders: she wore jeans and a t-shirt that didn’t quite fit, and her head was down, as if she couldn’t bear so many people looking at her. It was clear that she didn’t want to be there — on the stage or perhaps even in Idris — but the moment he saw her, Julian seemed to relax. The terrified look vanished from his expression as she moved to stand next to him, her face ducked down and away from the crowd.

“Julian,” said Jia, in the same gentle voice, “would you do something for us? Would you take up the Mortal Sword?”

I’m guessing this is part of the parabatai ceremony of Emma and Jules. What are your theories? Sound off in the comments!
