Yes…I must say that I could see him as Will. ;) Anyway Christian is really handsome. :)
And she asked me which actor I’d like to portray Will, so I told her my choices and she told me hers and she said when she was reading the book she always pictured Christian Cooke, I’d never heard of him before so I googled him….
Christian Cooke (Will Herondale)
No, I don’t like it….I LOOOOOVEE IT!!!!!!!!!! OMG IT’S SOOO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!! *_____*
Finished! Hope ya’ll like it!

“I have wanted to do this every moment of every hour of every day that I have been with you since the day I met you.”
She drew the poker out of the fire. It glowed as red as a heart. She closed her hand around the tip.
For a moment she felt absolutely nothing. And then, as if from a very great distance, she heard herself cry out, and it was like a key turned inside her heart, freeing the tears at last.

‘There was a faint halo of light around Will; as befitted his nature and would have surprised no one who knew him, he had not been able to stand still for the photograph. As always, he was hatless, his black hair curling against his temples. It was a loss not to be able to see the color of his eyes, but he was still beautiful and young and a little vulnerable-looking in the photograph, with one hand in his pocket and the other behind his neck.’ ~ Magnus’ Vow
(Randomly - Magnus mentioning that Will was still beautiful & young at that point makes me more hopeful that Will lives to be old at one point.)
He felt awkward, and wondered if Jem could sense it. He had never felt awkward around his parabatai before. It was the words, he thought, there on the tip of his tongue, pleading to be said.
‘You see it, don’t you, James. Without Tessa there is nothing for me - no joy, no light, no life. If you loved me, you would let me have her. You can’t love her as I do. If you are truly my brother, you would do this for me.’
But the words remained unspoken.
For Fay, who has been unbelievably lovely to me on here :) As per usual, I own none of TMI or TID nor the characters, they belong to the genius of Cassandra Clare :) Enjoy everyone <3
Sorry it has taken me so long to get to this request! This is a Valentine’s Day themed Will x Tessa set after Clockwork Prince and it’s events. Wish I was Cassandra Clare, but unfortunately I’m not so these characters and the Institute etc. do not belong to me :) Hope you like it :)
Did you find Jem a little self centered in this thinking in Clockwork Prince? I sort of base this off his reaction to Will taking opium, the fact that he’s completely blind about Will’s affection for Tessa (which I still don’t get, but that’s another discussion) and then at the end when he assumes Will only saved Tessa for himself. (These are the three instances that come to mind right now; there might be more)
I’m always hesitant to say anything remotely ill of Jem because the whole “criticizing the dying character” is apparently frowned upon, but he’s still accountable for how he acts. I like Jem and I don’t mean to bash him, but it kind of bothers me how he’s never called out for anything, like he never does anything but good. No one is perfect, and Jem is no exception.
Will gets raked over the coals for everything, it seems like, especially over the opium thing. So I say okay fine, but Jem should be held to those same standards as well.
What are your thoughts? Maybe I stand alone here, haha. I swear I always feel like I’m getting dirty looks for saying anything negative about Jem, like he’s an untouchable character, but it’s just how I feel.

Whew…you are trying to get me strung up, aren’t you? lol Okay - in the interest of full disclosure - this is my own opinion, I don’t care if anyone disagrees as it’s what I feel. It’s an unpopular opinion, but meh…I don’t really care. No, it doesn’t make me a worse fan than anyone else (thank you, solitary Ms Anon who thinks no-one should run a fansite if they don’t agree entirely with the author), no, it isn’t about shipping, and no, I’m probably not going to change my mind until I see something to disprove it in CP2. I don’t dislike Jem, I don’t love him, but I don’t dislike him either. He’s important to Will, so I want him to have happiness in his life but I’m just not emotionally invested in his character after CP, compared to how I was in CA.
‘You are the first dream, the only dream I was ever unable to stop myself dreaming. You are the first dream of my soul, and from that dream I hope will come all other dreams, a lifetime’s worth.’
I read them all. Every word you wrote. You and I, Tess, we’re alike. We live and breathe words…. It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, and I with them. Reading your words, what you wrote, how you were lonely sometimes and afraid, but always brave; the way you saw the world, its colors and textures and sounds, I felt—I felt the way you thought, hoped, felt, dreamed. I felt I was dreaming and thinking and feeling with you. I dreamed what you dreamed what you dreamed, wanted what you wanted—and then I realized that truly I just wanted you. The girl behind the scrawled letters. I loved you from the moment I read them. I love you still.
