Books are the staff of my life

we-re-groot:

Cassandra Clare at Sao Paulo’s Book Bienal (23/08) meet.

(photos by me, sorry for the quality)

Here are some things she revealed:

(Spoiler Free)

  • Sebastian was the most challenging character she had to write, because she wanted to make some part of him good but still him being evil.
  • She usually conects each character with songs and said Jace’s theme song is a song by Great Big World.
  • She loved writing Isabelle and Simon, but the funniest character for her to write was Magnus.
  • Her best friend Holly Black was always reading her stories and that kept her motivated to keep writing.
  • She based the parabatais on greek warriors which were encouraged to be lovers so they would die for each other.
  • She also started by writing fanfiction, and told us that by the time she started there were only three Harry Potter books so she wrote fanfiction because she wanted a fourth for herself.
  • The most tragic death she had to write was Will’s, not because he died in a horrible way, but because everybody was there and like Tessa and Jem would live hundreds of years without him.
  • She was asked if she had Jamie in her mind when he audictioned and said that no, but he had the perfect characteristics and had the most chemistry with Lily.
  • She’s planning on writing another trilogy about the Institutes later.
  • She based the Clave on the roman government and made it a little meaner, because she loved to see people fighting monsters but it was really important to show them fighting their governments as well.
  • She doesn’t know much about the “City of Ashes” filming, but she said they were rewriting the script so it would be closer to the book.
  • Her words were really inspiring for fanfiction/any writers.

(Spoilers)

  • We will see Isabelle and Simon in the Dark Artifices, just as Tessa and Jem.
  • She gave us a hint on the next villain and said that we already not only know him but love him.
  • She was asked about the connection with Mark and said that he didn’t have any, but after so many years he’d comeback and [start seeing Emma with other eyes]
  • A fan asked about the relationship between Emma and Brother Zacariah and as she couldn’t give us any spoilers she just said that if you’d read the books you’d know.

She was adorable the whole time she was there and even let a fan come on stage to hug her, she also said some words in portuguese and said she was surprised with such a brazilian response, also she complimented some of the cosplayers. She only made us love her even more!

Hi anon, yes, I do! :D

I admit Raphael is a tough one for me. Frankly he’s not one of my favorite guys and I find him difficult to write, but I’ll see what I can do about it.

wishuponastardis:

Special skills: extensive Harry Potter knowledge, can watch an entire TV show in a week, knows words to every Disney song, can form abnormally strong attachments to fictional characters, Microsoft Word

So you mean, able to retain knowledge, has incredible focus and drive, excellent at processing media, remembers obscure details when needed, and has great skill at creating connections with individuals despite minimal interfacing?

And Microsoft Word?

I’m going to use that for my next job application!
