A Guide To The Many Ships Of The Mortal Instruments

Gosh that’s a long title. Sorry.

*HUGE SPOILER ALERT*

Anyway, The Mortal Instruments has thousands of ships. Mentioning the wrong one can get you murdered by a hoard of screaming fangirls. Trust me- you don’t want to meet a fangirl who just overheard you ship Climon (Climon? Simonary? I don’t even think they have a ship name). Here is a guide to all the many ships of The Mortal Instruments.

  1. Clace (Clary and Jace)

Clace is the ship with the main character (Clary) and is awesome. It becomes canon, and is one that it’s hard not to ship. They go through so much together, and they are so perfect for each other, and, and, and *sniffs tearfully*. They are amazing. However, sadly they are overtaken by……

2. Sizzy (Simon and Izzy)

This ship. Oh my god. They are perfect. They are incredible. They become canon in The Mortal Instruments, before Simon loses his memory (😭😭😭😭). They then split (😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭) in Welcome to Shadowhunter’s Academy, but it doesn’t last long and they soon get back together again (thank god). AND THEN I DIED WHEN AT THE BACK OF LADY MIDNIGHT THEY GET ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This ship is practically perfection, they are wonderful, and you can’t help shipping them. They are one of my many OTP’s (MTP’s) and for a time my username on most things was “percabeth-sizzy”. They are adorable. Adorable.

3. Malec (Magnus and Alec)

Malec is absolutely adorable. It is a gay couple that becomes canon in The Mortal Instruments. In Welcome to Shadowhunter Academy, they adopt a baby warlock who they name Max, after Alec’s deceased brother😭😭😭😭😭. In Lady Midnight they adopted a Shadowhunter called Rafael Santiago Lightwood. They are adorable, especially as their love is so disapproved of, yet they still find a way. For one, Magnus is a warlock and Alec a Shadowhunter, and as Will so bluntly put it “there is no future for a Shadowhunter who dallies with a warlock”. Times have moved on a bit, but warlocks are still not approved of. And of course, it doesn’t help that they are both men. A song that sums up Malec love would be Ours, by Taylor Swift. If you haven’t heard it, you should listen to it. It is amazing. You can listen to it here. I really recommend it. It’s an awesome song. And it totally sums up Malec love. You can check out why on my post about this here. This love is amazing.

4. Climon? Simonary? (Simon and Clary)

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

This ship is awful. Simon briefly has a crush on Clary, and she sort of likes him, but her heart is never really interested with him. He’s just the one she turns to when she thinks Jace is her brother (but never mention that time. Ever) but they never really work. And Sizzy is perfect- Izzy is who Simon is destined to be with. Whatever you call it, this ship sucks. It is appalling. This is definitely the worst shop of the entire series, and most fans agree (except for the really stupid ones who ship this- we don’t even count them as fans to be quite honest).

5. Jalec (Jace and Alec)

No. No. No. This is like Climon. It doesn’t work. Alec has a crush on Jace for a bit, but to be honest it’s never really a proper crush. They’re practically siblings. And they’re parabatai. Also, Alec is destined to be with Magnus. You can’t break up Malec (or Clace, for that matter). This does not work. This sucks. Go away Jalec shippers. We all hate you.

6. Jace and Izzy

This has no ship name, as far as I’m aware of. Some people ship it, but frankly this is just weird. They are practically siblings, and neither like each other. I honestly don’t get it. This ship sucks. End of.

7. Jace and Magnus

Is this even a thing?

8. Clary and Magnus

What the……

9. Maia and Jordan

This is just adorable. They are so cute together. It becomes canon in The Mortal Instruments but then Jordan dies😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭. They go through some rough times- Jordan accidentally turns Maia into a werewolf and Maia thought he did it intentionally but then they make up and date again when Maia gets dumped by Simon for Izzy. You see- it was fated to happen. Maia was about to dump Jordan when he died, but they are just so adorable. Afterwards, Maia appears to be beginning to like Bat, but that is irrelevant. Jordan and Maia are adorable and prefect for each other. They are so cute. They make the fatal mistake though, if saying they have all the time in the world. But, this is a perfect ship that is just adorable. However, the fandom is split (though I think more people ship Maia with Jordan) between those who ship Maia and Jordan and those who ship…

10. Maia and Bat

As I showed in the last part, I personally ship Maia with Jordan. I think they are way cuter. But it is definitely acceptable to ship Maia with Bat. Though it doesn’t become canon, at the end of The Mortal Instruments you get a strong sense that this is beginning to happen. Personally, I think Jordan and Maia were way better, but you are entitles to your own opinion. However, you cannot ship…

11. Maia and Luke

This is just weird. For a start, Luke is a fully grown man. Maia is still in her teens. It really doesn’t work. Also, Luke gets MARRIED. To JOCELYN. Who he has HAD A HUGE CRUSH ON FOR ABOUT 20 YEARS. C’mon people. This ship sucks.

12. Jocelyn and Luke

Though, adults, Jocelyna and Luke is a pretty cute ship. They get married at the end of The Mortal Instruments. Luke has had a crush on Jocelyn ever since they were teenagers, but Jocelyn married Valentine, and then ran away. Luke found her again, and they fell in love and got married. They’re very cute, despite being adults (usually adult ships are just really weird but this one isn’t). Feel free to ship this, but please avoid any other weird ships combining the adults. I don’t have the time to talk about every single combination you can make.

 

So here are some big shipping yes’s and some big, big no’s. I hope you enjoyed this and (hopefully) now understand why Simon is destined for Izzy and NOT CLARY. You better, or else.
