HAVE YOU GOTTEN YOUR SPECIAL EDITION YET?? Because it’s out and it’s BEAUTIFUL!
It’s week six my book peeps. Time to put myself in the Shadowhunter universe and see what happens.
Week six has a specific prompt to go with it. “You find yourself in the world we’ve only read about. Are you Nephilim? (Looking Better in Black Than the Widows of our Enemies Since 1234!) Demon? (I have questions.) Angel? Ghost? Mundane? A Downworlder? Chairman Meow?”
MAJOR soul-searching had to be done for this post. This question made me analyze myself and come to terms with some personal weaknesses. Jeez, nothing like a random City of Bones question to make me seriously introspective. I’m rolling my eyes at myself.
Who I Am in the Shadowhunter-verse
Don’t give me that look! I’m not just saying this because Magnus and Tessa are my favorites. Actual thought was put into this dammit!!
OBVIOUSLY I’m dying to declare myself as a shadowhunter. They can fight, they get to wear a lot of black, they have awesome tattoos with magical powers, they save people—shadowhunters are just the tops. But if I’m really being honest with myself, I’m just not awesome enough to reach shadowhunter status. Let’s go over the facts shall we?
- Not actually athletic in ANY way.
- No fighting skillz and have never actually been in a fight ever.
- Have never touched a weapon of any kind if we’re not counting butter knives.
- Is generally too nice and gets taken advantage of (sad but true).
- The only kind of impressive skill I have is with horses, which doesn’t help me AT ALL in this universe.
- Hates running with a fiery, burning passion.
- Would probably be the first to die in a zombie apocalypse.
- Extremely gullible.
If I’m being really really really honest with myself, I’m completely a mundane. Simon and I are the most mundane-y mundanes around, but dang it! If Simon gets to be a cool vampire, then I get to be something cool too!!
After stubbornly refusing mundane status, it was just a process of elimination. Can’t be a vampire because I get squeamish around mass amounts of blood. And murder. Werewolves are out for the same reasons listed above. I can’t be a fairy because they’re too manipulative and angels are out because I’m not that much of a goody-goody. Then I thought of warlocks and belatedly realized it was pretty fitting.
Most warlocks that we see in this universe are still human-like (in terms of emotions and behavior), but have a cool calm and wisdom about them that comes with age. Many people have told me I’m “wise beyond my years” and I feel like I have that kind of vibe too. Plus, all the good warlocks get to help people, practice really cool magic, wear lots of glitter, and live forever (given you don’t get shot with one of Alec’s arrows or something). Sign me up!!
So in summary, I’m an awesome warlock and TOTALLY NOT A MUNDANE. FIGHT ME.
