So, to start off, I’d like to say that The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices are two of my favourite series’.

Lets see which one wins…

Favourite main character: Clary or Tessa?

I love Clary, I do, but I have to go with Tessa. I just connect with her more; with her abundant love of books, her personality, everything. Even though yes, Clary does enjoy reading as well, Tessa’s love is more precious, just like mine is.

TMI: 0 
TID: 1

Favourite Herondale: Jace or Will

This is difficult. God, I love both so much, for completely different reasons. Jace’s personality, his troubles, this is one I can relate to more, so I have to go with Jace. I feel like I’m betraying Will by picking Jace, but even though WIll is one of my favourite characters in the shadowhunter world, Jace connects more. I ache for Will, I really do, but I understand Jace.

TMI: 1 
TID: 1Favourite love triangle: Simon/Clary/Jace or Will/Tessa/Jem?

Definitely Will/Tessa/Jem. This love triangle killed me. I threw my book across the room because of this.

TMI: 1
TMI: 2

Better Villain: Sebastian or the Magister?

Sebastian ruined the lives of his enemies greater than the Magister. There was a deeper emotional connection in TMI, than in TID, from the villains, and if that isn’t a worse evil than I don’t know what is.

TMI: 2
TID: 2

Better army: The Dark Army or The Clockwork Army?

Hmm…. I’d say The Dark Army. It hurt the shadowhunters more, especially Luke. (I’m so cruel sorry, not really.)

TMI: 3 
TID: 2

Better First Book: City of Bones or Clockwork Angel?

I loved them both, but I have to say Clockwork Angel. I absolutely loved the opening.

TMI: 3
TID: 3 

Better Female Sidekick: Isabelle Lightwood or Cecily Herondale?

Sorry Cecy, but I have to go with Isabelle. She’s just so badass and loving and oh God the feels…

TMI: 4
TID: 

Better Setting: The New York Institute or The London Institute?

The London Institute. The River Thames brings back too many feels.

TMI: 4
TID: 4

Better Last Book: City of Heavenly Fire or Clockwork Princess?

It’s City of Heavenly Fire. I loved Clockwork Princess, I did, but COHF killed me more. I mean, have you read it? The feels are too much. With Malec and Jessa and Sizzy and Clace and war and blood and demons and death and so much more, I can’t not pick COHF. It was all just too tragically beautiful. I read the hell out of that book, in like six hours. Clockwork Princess took me under ten hours to finish.

TID: 4

Better Final Epilogue: City of Heavenly Fire or Clockwork Princess?

City of Clockwork Princess killed me. Down to the final sentence, down to the At last, the wheel comes full circle, down to the they kept their silence, down to the tears falling down my face like the stream of Niagara falls and down to the dark blots filling the page, well, least to say, I was dead before they even got one word out of the epilogue. So yes, I pick Clockwork Princess. COHF made me cry tears of relief, but my soul was ripped out of my chest and dumped onto the ground, and then run over by a truck and sent to the fiery pits of hell, and then was tortured by every soul down there, in Clockwork Angel, so yes, I pick that epilogue.

TMI: 5
TID: 5

Okay so…

Nobody won. I guess it’s safe to say I love TMI and TID equally, but for completely different reasons. I love Cassie, and her ability to make me cry and my heart ache and dance and make me smile so damn hard. Through the hard times, I could reminisce about Cassie’s books, and I’d feel, even the slightest bit, lighter. So, thank you Cassie. The fandom loves you.

Comment which one you like more: TMI or TID?
