City of Glass, Why Did You Have To End?

May 31, 2009


If you're not a Cassandra Clare fan, skip this post.
If you're in love with Jace, if you're best friends with Simon, if you have no idea how truly beautiful or powerful you are as a kick-ass warrior like Clary, and if you think you may want your own stele to carve transformative runes into your skin or the skin of those you care about…
You probably know what I'm talking about.
As my friend Pseudonymous Bosch once said, only bad books have good endings.
If they're really good books, you never want them to end, so the ending always feels horribly horrible.
Cassandra Clare, why does parting have to be such sweet sorrow?
Can't I time travel back to yesterday and finish your series all over again?
Is there a rune for that?
Time to start drawing fan art.
