365 Days of TMI: Day 358 Shadows and Bones

Although it's a very rainy day where I am thanks to Tropical Storm Isaac, there's a bright moment for me and for fans thanks to Sony Pictures. They released a new picture on the set.

Here's the picture caption from The Mortal Instruments Facebook page: "Director Harald Zwart (left) and director of photography Geir Andreassen (right) bring the City of Bones to life on set! More production stills of the Mortal Instruments talent and crew to come!"

Don't you just love all the creepy skulls!?? Just seeing bones scattered about reminds me of just how much closer we are, day by day, to seeing the movie brought to life on the big screen. The TMI Facebook page also has a poll of who you'd like most brought to life in the movie. Jace is in the lead currently. Which leads me to today's theme for 365. Clary sees Jace, Alec and Isabelle for the first time at the Pandemonium Club when her curiosity gets the best of her.

At first, when Clary enters what seems to be a utility room, she sees nothing, but all that changes in an instant.

It was as if they sprung into existence between one blink of her eyes and the next. There was the girl in her long white dress, her black hair hanging down her back like damp seaweed. The two boys were with her -- the tall one with black hair like hers, and the smaller, fair one, whose hair gleamed like brass in the dim light coming through the windows high above."

The trio of Shadowhunters were interrogating the blue haired boy that Clary and Simon followed into the club. Of course, Clary has no clue what is going on. Here's one of my fave lines from the chapter from Jace:

"Demons," drawled the blond boy, tracing the word in the air with his finger. "Religiously defined as hell's denizens, the servants of Satan, but understood here, for the purposes of the Clave, to be any malevolent spirit whose origin is outside our own home dimension--"

Clary watches Jace and thinks he's utterly insane and primal, describing him like the lions she'd watched on the Discovery Channel, "they way the big cats would raise their heads and sniff the air for prey". And later, after the blue haired demon is revealed she notices his "wide spaced, light-colored eyes, and that tawny gold hair.

Jace seems mesmerized by her as well, realizing there is no way a normal mundane would be able to witness what just happened.

"Have you had dealings with demons, little girl? Walked with warlocks, talked with the Night Children? Have you-"

"My name is not 'little girl'," Clary interrupted. "And I have no idea what you're talking about."

Clary did, however, have a feeling that her words might not be so true, and that is the beginning of the awakening of a whole new world for Clary. Of course, there was no one to talk to about what she'd seen. Simon couldn't understand it, and if she couldn't talk to him, there was no one else who'd get it.

Come back for snippets, movie news and more tomorrow!!
