Meaning that while Simon says Clary about their feelings directly, she considers him her brother.
oh gods. you’re that annoying reposter the fandom is going on about. guys, if you see any post by this user, either reblog to tell your followers that they repost or don’t like/reblog. they don’t deserve notes for someone else’s work.
Hi Cassie, I loved City of Heavenly Fire and cannot wait until the Dark Artifices comes out. I’ve seen the timeline you posted forever ago for the Mortal Instruments, but I was wondering if you could make a more detailed timeline that includes City of Heavenly Fire. Thank you so much!
Sure. Once more, with more details:
Here’s the basic timeline of the TMI books:
CoB: takes place in August 2007, the year the book was published.
CoA: begins in very early September 2007- a few days to a week after CoB ends.
CoG: begins in September, about 1 week after CoA ends. The whole book takes place in 1.5-2 weeks. It is mentioned that the leaves on trees are beginning to turn fall colors.
CoFA: begins in Mid-October (Halloween decorations are up, Simon mentions the month) and ends around the third or fourth week of October. In CoFA, it is also mentioned that Clary has been training to fight demons for 7 weeks.
CoLS: The prologue is set in late October. The first chapter begins two weeks later, in the 2nd week of November.
October had 5 weeks in 2007. Here’s a link to a 2007 calendar:
COHF: Takes place in early December through the end of December. It is mentioned in the beginning that people are shopping for Christmas presents. The last chapter ends before Christmas Day. Here’s where it get wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey:
The Clockwork Princess prologue then takes place in January, 2008, between the last chapter of CoHF and the epilogue of CoHF. Jem goes to meet Tessa.
COHF epilogue: May, 2008. It’s mentioned that it’s May, school’s almost out, etc. We see Jem and Tessa at the wedding, after their January meeting.
Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy takes up space in between May 2008— August 2013.
Lady Midnight begins in August, 2013. (Oddly, the same month the TMi movie came out. Randomly chosen, though.)
I’ve gotten a lot of asks about where the epilogue of Clockwork Princess fits into the timeline of TMI. Here’s the basic timeline of the TMI books:
"If a woman is president, she’ll PMS and start a war because of it"

Major American Wars caused/started by women:
I am definitely a feminist. I’m f**king disgusted by the way women are still treated. It’s 1993 and some people still think we’re in the 1950’s. We need to make more progress. There needs to be more female musicians, more female artists, more female writers. Everything is dominated by f**king males, and I’m sick of it!– Kurt Cobain (via autoplaying)
the fact that he said this 20 years ago and it’s still relevant
