4/ ∞ people that cause me physical pain: Jay McGuiness
I suppose I was naïve coming into Thrones as to how seriously people take their favorite movies or TV shows. It was always a surprise to me that people would know so much about the character, it’s actually very encouraging that, as you say “geeks”, you ‘ll never meet more enthusiastic people if you tried. They make you feel guilty about not being more enthusiastic! But I love it, I love the (cosplay) and stuff, I always feel that Thrones has turned me into a bit of a geek myself. (X)

T h e M o r t a l I n s t r u m e n t s + MORTAL CUP :
also known as the Angel’s Cup, was a cup from Angel Raziel. In the Bible, the Nephilim, or Shadowhunters, were the offspring of humans and angels, created more than a thousand years ago when humans were being overrun by demon invasions from other worlds. A warlock summoned the Angel Raziel, who mixed some of his own blood with the blood of men in a cup, and gave it to those men to drink. Those who drank the Angel’s blood became Shadowhunters, as did their children and their children’s children. The cup was used to create more Shadowhunters through the years, when Shadowhunter ranks were depleted. It can also be used to turn Shadowhunters demonic.
Apparently, the Cup mostly works on children. An adult would either be unaffected by the process entirely, or killed outright. Although, only selected humans are selected to be turned into Nephilim since most never survive the transition. It takes special strength and resilience and they must be extensively tested, which Valentine Morgenstern apparently wouldn’t bother about when trying to create a new race of Shadowhunters.
