the1thatreads said: Hi! I'm a HUGE fan of your books and I am currently rereading the mortal instruments series:) I just wanted to ask you a random question: do you think that Clary will ever have a parabatai? I always envisioned her parabatai being Isabelle:) thank you!!❤️❤️
Maybe Clary will have a parabatai. I can think of a certain someone who wants to be a Shadowhunter who would be very qualified.
Isabelle and Clary are not going to be parabatai. Isabelle doesn’t want one. Most people don’t have them. Having a parabatai is not something everyone would want and it’s okay not to want it! It doesn’t mean you don’t have a best friend, someone like a sister to you, etc. In Dark Artifices, Julian is Emma’s parabatai, but Cristina is her best friend. There’s a real qualitative difference in the relationships (even leaving out any romantic factor.)
