thecordeliacarstairs said:In one of your recent answers about Matthew you said that people
understandably get tired of having an unrequited crush on someone. Can we expect Cordelia to at least try to get over James (even though it’s not really unrequited but she doesn’t know that)?
I would say yes, we can definitely expect that. And Cordelia’s definitely a go big or go home type.
ariana-n3 said:Hi Cassie! Does Sona know or is aware of everything
Alastair has done for Elias/ to keep Cordelia from finding out? Also with him coming to London in COI will we get to find out how exactly she feels about Elias and his alcoholism? Thanks!
Sona is somewhat aware. To her, it would be Alastair appropriately stepping up to help protect the family and help protect Cordelia. Sona knows Elias has a problem with alcohol, but she comes from a time period in which people believed that it was also something that shouldn’t be talked about, for everyone’s good, but should just be worked around and ignored. (There were quack cures, even things sold specifically to wives to put in their husband’s alcohol to make them stop drinking. They didn’t work. There was even a belief that “Alcoholism was caused by toxins.”)
So yes, Sona is somewhat aware — she also took steps to keep Cordelia from finding out — but she’s deep in denial about many aspects of what Elias’ alcoholism has meant for his family, and we’ll see that when Elias returns.
imabitchforjamesherondale said: Hi Cassie! I absolutely adored Chain of Gold. Will Cordelia start feeling disappointment and sadness towards her father’s return? What does she think about Elias right now?
It depends on how he is when he returns, right? She’s already disappointed and sad that Elias has been an alcoholic all this time. She has been adjusting to a new vision of her father. So it very much depends on whether the Basilias has helped him, how he is now, how he thinks about how he was in the past, etc. Elias may not know about amends, but he certainly needs to make them.
matthewfairchildx said:Does the bracelet…
‘s power only limit the person wearing it to think about it, or does it also prevent others from thinking about it?
It does work to prevent others from thinking about it. Though for the characters, the bracelet is just some random thing James wears, there’s no reason to suspect it any more than his trousers. Any mood swings he has are easily attributable to the devastation of forbidden love, being broken up with, etc. The bracelet being on or off tracks with him being with Grace or dumped by Grace, so they’re going to assume any moods he has are about the status of his relationship with Grace, not the bracelet.
Like I’ve never had a friend fall in love with someone I didn’t like and immediately I was like IT’S YOUR WATCH and took it off them and stepped on it. No one likes that person. So even though the bracelet can deflect attention when needed, there’s little reason for most people to think about it.
thefuriousmoles said: Hi Cassie, Chain of Gold was such a brilliant read, I love it with all my heart! I have two questions though: does the bracelet physically hurt James? Both the kiss in the park as well as the departure from the bracelet seemed to have caused him pain. :( Question 2: Was Grace serious about only ever loving her brother (she spend the first 8 years with her birth parents, after all, right?)
Resisting the bracelet’s effect can cause him some physical pain, yes. And having it taken off him results in something of a hangover.
Grace doesn’t really recall her parents, for reasons you will find out about in Chain of Iron!
