This aesthetic made by Memcir inspired by the Guardians of Childhook book series by William Joyce is simply amazing and I can easily see Georgie Henley playing the growing up Katherine 😀
If I went to the American witch and wizardry school that is Ilvermorny, I would be sorted into Horned Serpent 😛
I watched the new behind the scenes feature of Shadowhunters over the weekend 😀 And lots of fans on tumblr have already been gif making the new footage for the show!
I have been part of so many in following literature, films, anime, comics and book series. We are all quite passionate when it comes to our beloved characters I can understand that completely for I am the same. But some of you honestly are so nit picky when it comes to the portrayal of the fictional people.
What I am going to point fingers at is the Mortal Instruments/Shadowhunters fandom from what I am reading merely on the Facebook fanpages. While many of us are appreciating the fact they are having a second try at making the book series into a show and instead of a movie it will go on the smaller screen.
A lot of the fans are arguing amongst each other and are picking at every single detail from Clary’s hair colour to the design of the seraph blade (a Shadowhunter’s weapon). The movie flopped because it diverted from the original plot and became a romantic comedy with flashes of fantasy and Jace’s one liners from the novel but did not succeed in the same area as Hunger Games and Harry Potter.
Now it is going to the television, new director and new cast and I personally think these actors are on point and look like the characters in the novel, I have shared the previews and pictures to friends and family who have read TMI and they all so far are quite positive on the outcome. The show premieres on January 12th on ABC turning into ‘Freeform’. I can’t wait to somehow find it, tv shows take their time in arriving here in Australia but I will be a loyal fan and watch the season opening.
The rest of you need to chill out and ‘by the Angel’ have a bit more faith in what this rebranding are trying to accomplish!
First I got through Dawn of the Dreadfuls and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies within 4 days of reading now I had the first two books of Lunar Chronicles; Cinder and Scarlet finished in two days! And like any fangirl of a beloved series that nerve wrecking impatience of waiting for the final book to be released (not until November) and the pre-order of the third book- Cress
I am so very glad that my dear friend Aria has introduced me to this series, I was having a bland moment reading between Alice in Wonderland and powering through City of Bones, I read through CoB and enjoyed it though some bits were a bit yawn and I’m only reading it again because of next year’s Shadowhunters series.
But the Lunar Chronicles! Wow what a breath of fresh air breathed into the classic fairytales kinda like what Once upon a time did sending a twist into all the legendary characters. The setting is futuristic and its nitty gritty, the Cinderella or Cinder Linh is one bad ass cyborg woman while Scarlet Benoit in the second book is just as awesome. I highly recommend this series and as we get closer to November I can eagerly use the hashtag known for Game of Thrones… #Winteriscoming!!
