SPOILERS FOR COHF.
A reader sent me this - yay, always happy to discover a great new fanartist.
A bit spoilery art featuring ‘Jonathan and Val’ + an extended snippet you’ve seen a long time ago from Cassie ‘cause hONEYS I PROMISED Y’ALL THAT I
WOULD MAKE Y’ALL CRYWOULD POST A SEBBY FANART after the COHF buzz has ended.
"…He has always had green eyes, said the voice in her head. People often marvel at how much alike you are, he and your mother and yourself. His name is Jonathan and he is your brother; he has always protected you.
‘Clary,’ he said, ‘you’re not going to believe—’
‘Jonathan!’ a small voice trilled, and Clary turned her wondering eyes to see a little girl dashing across the grass. She had red hair, the same shade as Clary’s, and it flew out behind her like a banner…
…But of course, her name is Valentina, said the voice in the back of her head. Valentine Morgenstern was a great hero of the war; he died in a battle against Hodge Starkweather, but not before he had saved the Mortal Cup, and the Clave along with it. When Luke married your mother, they honored his memory in the name of their daughter.”
A good version of Sebastian/Jonathan has always amazed me. How will he look like if there’s no demon blood in his veins? What will be his personality? And then I read COHF. That part was bittersweet. As it turned out, if there’s no demon blood in his veins, he could have been a protective brother to Clary and a good son to Jocelyn. Damn demon blood and Valentine! In the end, the root of all evil in the latter part of the series is still not Sebastian, but Valentine. I mean, look at that smile! So not-evil. *cries*
