Life’s too short to get jaded, to not allow yourself to get excited by anything. This is not a normal job—it’s not normal what I get to do, and the second I start to think it’s normal, that’s not cool.
CASSANDRA CLARE SAID THAT TDA WAS GOING TO BE PARTIALLY BASED OFF OF THE POEM ANNABEL LEE BY EDGAR ALLAN POE RIGHT WELL LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING FANDOM I GREW UP IN MARYLAND RIGHT OUTSIDE BALTIMORE POE IS MY HOMEBOY LEMME BREAK THIS POEM DOWN FOR YOU BEFORE THE CAFFEINE WEARS OFF:
Annabel Lee by Edgar Allan PoeIt was many and many a year ago,In a kingdom by the sea, (LOS ANGELES INSTITUTE)That a maiden there lived whom you may knowBy the name of Annabel Lee; (AKA EMMA CARSTAIRS)And this maiden she lived with no other thoughtThan to love and be loved by me. (ME=JULIAN)I was a child and she was a child,In this kingdom by the sea,But we loved with a love that was more than love—I and my Annabel Lee—With a love that the wingèd seraphs of HeavenCoveted her and me. (EMMA AND JULIAN LOVE EACH OTHER A LOT K)And this was the reason that, long ago,In this kingdom by the sea,A wind blew out of a cloud, chillingMy beautiful Annabel Lee;So that her highborn kinsmen cameAnd bore her away from me, (HER PARENTS DIED AND SHE GREW UP FAST)To shut her up in a sepulchreIn this kingdom by the sea. (AFTER HER PARENTS DIE ALL EMMA WANTS IS TO RID THE WORLD OF DEMONS, ESSENTIALLY “KILLING” HER CHILDHOOD, IN LOVE WITH JULIAN, SELF. well on the outside they still guilty love each other)The angels, not half so happy in Heaven, (PARABATAI CAN’T LOVE EACH OTHER ROMANTICALLY)Went envying her and me—Yes!—that was the reason (as all men know,In this kingdom by the sea) (ALL OF THE CLAVE KNOW IT’S FORBIDDEN FOR PARABATAI TO LOVE ROMANTICALLY)That the wind came out of the cloud by night,Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee. (THEY’RE LIKE “NO GUYS, WE FORBID THAT SHIT”)But our love it was stronger by far than the loveOf those who were older than we—Of many far wiser than we— (“FUCK THE CLAVE WE ARE OTP”)And neither the angels in Heaven above (“FUCK THE ANGELS TOO”)Nor the demons down under the sea (“FUCK THOSE GUYS ESPECIALLY”)Can ever dissever my soul from the soulOf the beautiful Annabel Lee; (“WE’RE PARABATAI AND IN LOVE FUCK ALL OF YOU GUYS”)For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreamsOf the beautiful Annabel Lee;And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyesOf the beautiful Annabel Lee;And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the sideOf my darling—my darling—my life and my bride,In her sepulchre there by the sea—In her tomb by the sounding sea. (JULIAN LOVES HER BUNCHES. EMMA LOVES HIM BUNCHES. THEY ARE END GAME IGNORE THE DEATH HINTS THEY ARE TOTALLY FUCKING END GAME)The end
"Alec was not like any Shadowhunter Magnus had met before"
90% of these words were said by Magnus anyway
I feel the need to reblog this gifset because I heard someone said Alec has “no personalities” LOL
Alexander, I’ve been alive for hundreds of years. I’ve been with men, been with women - with faeries and warlocks and vampires, and even a djinn or two. - Magnus to Alex
