Your classic Clary Warrior edit.
I've been seeing a lot of Clary hate recently, and I'd like to make it clear where I stand on this: I don't believe these claims are valid. Let me begin on the stupidity of people complaining that she shouldn't be a protagonist. She IS the main character, people, nothing will change that. She is the inciting incident, her walking into Pandemonium sets everything off with the Circle and the Clave. She is Valentine and Jocelyn's daughter, she has Ithuriel's blood. Clary is vital to the plot.
As for other things I've seen her being attacked for, let's start on her avoidance of Jace. It's only natural. She's torn over Simon because she loves him, and she's afraid he hates her and she feels guilty for her feelings for Jace. The break-up is done a lot more maturely than in the books, and very powerful. Climon is not a typical case of friendzone. It is of two people who've known each other so long and cared for one another so deeply noticing their friendship develop into romantic attraction. If Clary had never walked into Pandemonium, she would have ended up with Simon somewhere down the track. And being around Jace when things are the way they are only complicates matters more. This is perfectly natural, and Jace should have listened to Izzy and not approached her until he thought she was ready for this conversation. Please don't tell me that's not something you would do.
I also believe Clary being "the only one" to understand Jace is really quite unhealthy. Of course Alec and Izzy should understand Jace. They're his family.
And in general, show Clary still is someone who would do anything for the people she loves, but in the show she's more sensible. She does her best to pull others back but to follow them should they go through with what they have in mind. She is still stubborn and headstrong, but not irrationally so. And you can see her cleverness, too, in a way book or movie Clary didn't: she saw through Valentine and Cleophas, for example.
This fandom is immature.
