30 Day Book Challenge
Day 06 - A book that makes you sad
Oooh. I don’t usually get emotional with books or anything but there are a few that manage to hit me.
Sadness in terms of “oh my god this is horrible that this happened and holy crap I can’t even imagine going through this; this actually happened to people” I would say Between Shades of Gray which is about the Lithuanian genocide. I had never even heard about this before reading the book.
Sadness in terms of “I may just start crying because this is beautifully sad” would be Clockwork Princess. You know that scene with Will when he realizes that the Parabatai bond is broken. Yeah. That’s the one. Just in general you want to cry the whole time because Jem freaking Carstairs.

You know, before I read the infernal devices I was under the impression that most people loved Will (/shipped him with Tessa)
but then I started reading and was like pfffffttt I must’ve hallucinated that. Who tf likes this cretin. And I was like, surely everyone loves Jem more.
And now I have finished the series, and I am again fairly certain that Will is the popular choice
Why? Why?
Why?
Things this boy did (not counting the stuff he did because he thought he was cursed):
Read Tessa’s letters without her permission
“Fall in love with her” based on information he got from said letters (which, I’m sorry, is just not a thing. Love is also about how you interact on the day to day, not just about the books you’ve both read)
Suggested that Tessa break off an engagement with his DYING best friend, after he for the very first fucking time, treated her with the slightest bit of kindness
Like 90% of why Tessa even liked Will at all was that Herondale Pretty Privilege
Things Jem did:
Actually emotionally support Tessa on the day to day
Become the person she most trusted
Be a genuinely good ray of sunshine of a person even when faced with his imminent death
Care about William Herondale at his rudest and most self destructive
Tell his best friend that he could marry Tessa without feeling guilty about it when he died
Tell Tessa that he forgave her and Will for fucking the second they found out that Jem had “died”
Like goddamn it who the fuck was actually rooting for Will Herondale??? I don’t care how funny he is and how much poetry he can quote

What exactly does tessa sleeping with Will after jem died have to do with you being in a poly relationship or not?
I recommend asking this question to @thechangeling because I’m pretty sure they’re poly but I’ll give you how I interpret it.
She loved both of them. Her love for Will does not go away because Jem died. People grieve in different ways and that’s how they grieved. Jem would not have wanted them to deny their love for each other because he’s dead.
Again, might want to ask a poly person because I’m not very educated on this.

Does Tatiana flower have any meaning that could foreshadow someting?
Anon I am irrationally pissed off about Tatiana's card!!!! I wanted her to have a tragic end so WHY DOESN'T IT LOOK LIKE SHE WILL???? For the first time since I started work on these cards I am actually hoping I am wrong. But here you go ny love xxx
Tatiana Blackthorn
Tiger lily/Orange Lily
"Passionate hate" (yup accurate)
Other meanings:
• "Please please love me"
• Or alternatively "I dare you to love me" given to someone as a declaration that once they see all of you, all the ugly parts too, you are sure they cannot love you anymore (though you hope they do) (I actually think this might be to her brothers???)
• Disdain (pretty obvious)
• Wealth (well yeah she is pretty rich right?)
• Pride (again Tatiana is VERY prideful)
• There is an old legend from Asia about the Tiger Lily. A Korean hermit helped a wounded tiger by removing an arrow from its body. The tiger asked the hermit to use his powers to perpetuate their friendship after his death. The hermit agreed and when the tiger died, his body became a tiger lily.
• The Belligerant nature of women (a hilarious meaning if you ask me)
• Said to have a strong effect on our emotions and minds when growing near us (very interesting considering her control of Grace)
Other points of interest:
• In magic any lily can be used to keep away unwanted visitors (which I mean....she did)
• Also used to contact spirits and ask for guidance
• I also found a few spell books recommending it for spells to break up love (Tatiana breaking up James and Cordelia or at least trying to for years now)
• Associated with the moon and water.

Gideon Lightwood Flower Card Analysis
(I am honestly really surprised bu the fact there is nothing about his siblings in here? They were so integral to his original character especially Gabriel but this card is mostly focused on Sophie and his kids)
Given flower: Stock (also known as Gillyflower)
Given meaning: You will always be beautiful to me
Other meanings:
• Everlasting love (the same as Sophie)
• Everlasting beauty (for Sophie)
• A content and happy life and marriage (again him and Sophie)
• A long life
• Affection
• Um promptness??
• Fascination
• Distinction
• I will be faithful to you even in the face of adversity and misfortunes (*screeches in the rumours and in Barbara*)
• Friendship
• "For when someone suffers a misfortune (I do think you can gift this in the case of a lost child)
• You taught me to see the beauty in the world"
Dream symbolism:
• In a dark turn of events dreaming of this flower means that your child will die.
• Also related to that same point, you will experience a brief period of complete happiness before the loss
• That's pretty much it? It means that.
Other points of interest:
• Funnily enough Gillyflower is often used as a name for Carnations as well.....as in Matthew's flower
• Used in magic as a charm for a happy warm family life

Sophie Collins/Ashdown/Lightwood
Given flower: Bluebell
Given meaning: Gratitude (accurate and common meaning)
Other meanings:
• Humility
• Constancy
• Unwavering devotion and respect to your loved one (her and Gideon!!!)
• Everlasting love (a meaning shared with Gideon!)
• Loyalty (her loyalty to Charlotte is unquestionable and a big part of her character when we first meet her)
• Delicacy
• Kindness (arguably her defining quality)
• Luck (I suppose she was lucky in getting the chance to have a life like she did)
• Solitude (she was very isolated when we first meet her)
• Sorrowful regret (is this for Barbara? Thomas Tanner?)
• Truth (Sophie is a very honest character)
• Rebirth, rebirth of the dead (interesting? I assume this pertains to her rebirth as a Shadowhunter?)
• Placed on graves to comfort grieving parents (Barbara)
Dream symbolism:
• To dream of bluebells represents a positive experience in waking life that is noticeably not arrogant. Feeling how nice it is that someone is purposely trying to not embarrass you. Sensitivity about letting others feel good not being embarrassed.
• When the flower is a soft blue that turns to a deep blue it means tranquility descending into pain and tough times
• You are humble in real life and it is important to you that others feel at ease in your company. You may go out of your way to ensure others do not feel uncomfortable or embarrassed in work or public situations
• Bluebells in a dream symbolize the gratitude for all you have in your life. You work hard for all you have. You are rewarded with achieving what you dream. Bluebells symbolize your humility.
Other points of interest:
• Associated with faeries! (*Nudges my theory that Sophie has faerie blood somewhere in her family and that's why she had the sight towards ya'll *) and you should NEVER pick them for this reason, any child that does disappears (an old tale)
• I have literally no idea how this would connect but its said that if you wear a wreath of bluebells then you cannot tell a lie. Also the sap was used as glue for arrows and books!
• Associated with the moon and Saturn. Also with the air element.
