And this led to epiphany after epiphany. The first of which being this- Cassandra’s grandparents are Shelob and Sméagol. Bear with me on this.
If you look closely, you can see a fair amount of physical similarities. Obviously Shelob has black hair like Gothel and Cass. Particularly as Gollum, Sméagol and Gothel seem to have the same cheekbones, as well as the same eye structure. Shelob also has green eyes, just like Cass and Gothel do. Not to mention Smeagol has curly hair like Gothel and Cass do as well. This could also provide a solid explanation as to why Cass would hold the moonstone without dying or losing a limb; she was a quarter Maia, a literal goddess, giving her a little bit more kick than the average human does.

Some dialogue that may or may not end up in a fic
Shelob: Well, if it isn't Olorin and his merry band of lucky children.
Shelob: Ahh..we meet again, O mighty Ringbearers...the meal who got away, the wyrm who nearly cut out my eye, and the wretch who failed to deliver what he promised me.
Míli: Hold your tongue. We’ve already slain two Maia.
Shelob: A wheel slayed the first and the other was brought down by dumb luck and his own arrogance. I’d be careful if I were you, child. It takes much more to make a queen than a name, a few won battles, and an ancient Elven blade.
Shelob: Do you know how long I've been here, Olorin? I was the first of our kind to set foot in these lands. I was here long before Sauron, and long before the first stone of Barad-dur was placed. This is MY domain. And since you all so graciously got rid of the leech on the front porch for me, I'm taking it back.
Aragorn: And will you keep it once Gondor's armies learn you are harboring Orcs here?
Shelob: This is their only home, the only place they can turn to.
Gandalf: Whether you like it or not, Shelob, the world has changed. If you wish to keep Mordor in peace, you must build alliances. Do not make the same mistakes your mother did.
Shelob: My mother fell because her heart was weak enough to let the Black Foe in
Sam: You attacked Frodo! You tried to kill him!
Shelob: I tried to remind him his time was fading fast. It's not my fault he was too slow. I knew his hours were numbered before the ring consumed him.
