If you’re a diehard fangirl, the Javits Center in NYC was the place to be from October 8-11, 2015. The casts of TV favorites like Pretty Little Liars and Teen Wolf (both of whom we interviewed, FYI) were in attendance, plus the stars of your soon-to-be faves — like Shadowhunters! And, luckily enough, we were able to sit down and chat with every single member of the Shadowhunters family. WHAT IS LIFE??

You already heard about the mini-prank the upcoming ABC Family (soon-to-be Freeform) TV series’ leading male, Dom Sherwood, attempted to pull on his real-life girlfriend, Sarah Hyland (which totally backfired, BTW). Now, though, it’s all about the cast’s Parabatai. If you’re unfamiliar with the term, where have you been?? you need to read Cassie Clare‘s The Mortal Instruments book series ASAP. For the time being, however, we’ll bring you up to speed. Parabatai “is a pair of Nephilim warriors who fight together as lifelong partners, bound together by oath, regardless of their gender.” Think of it as someone you’re so close to, like your best friend or your sibling, but even closer.

Get it? Got it? Good, ’cause you’re about to find out who Dom Sherwood, Alberto Rosende, Emeraude Toubia and leading lady Kat McNamara chose to be their real-life Parabatai:
