#TMITuesday Jace and Jem. Another in Cassandra Jean’s set of postcards of scenes from City of Heavenly Fire.
It’s #TMI Tuesday and I’m also sharing a sneak peek at all-new Cliff Nielsen character art that will appear on the inside of the first edition of City of Heavenly Fire jacket. Find out how you can get exclusive access to it here: www.shadowhunters.com/TMITuesday
(Basically, go to the link, and share the content — through Twitter, Tumblr, or email — and it’ll unlock buttons along the right side of the page. Click on the one that says “ART REVEAL” and it’ll show you a piece of the art from the inside jacket, as well as providing new quotes from CoHF and shareable art.)
Did you notice how Sam said “Dean, come back to me” right at the beginning of the sneak peek when Dean appears to be unconscious? I wonder if Dean’s going to do a Smeagol/Gollum thing with switching back and forth between regular Dean and Demon Dean? That might explain why Sam then says, “that’s not my brother talking”, because he was just talking to Dean a moment ago. (Crowley did refer to the blade as Dean’s precious, after all.)
Some notes to get out of the way first, obviously top of the agenda is to say thank you to @svenjaliv for the amazing banner she made for this fic. It’s absolutely gorgeous, and I love it so much! Also, I want to thank everyone who offered to make something when I put the request out there - hopefully we’ll get to collaborate on art for other fics in the future, because I would love to work with more of the amazing artists in this fandom!
Second, I wound up splitting this chapter due to the length, so the sneak peek and other lines I posted will actually appear in the next part (sorry!). The good news is, it’s mostly written already so the next update won’t take as long.
A Hook/Emma angel/demon AU. They hide in plain sight, the servants of heaven and hell. The angels and the demons, who can save your soul or damn it. They stand on opposite sides, they are the bringers of light and the agents of darkness, they are enemies in an eternal war, but what happens when an angel and a demon are inexplicably drawn to each other?
Between Heaven & Hell
Will shouldered the door open and stepped into the familiar bar, seeing heads swivel his way and recognition dawn on a few faces scattered around the room. Even though it was only just past ten in the morning the regulars were already settled in, glued to their stools with drinks in hand and eyes slipping back to the TVs that were bolted to the ceiling, watching a European sports channel broadcast a soccer match live from the UK.
He stood in the shabby vestibule for a moment with his hands shoved deep in the pockets of his leather jacket, scanning the room quickly for the man he had come to see. It didn’t take long, he was at his usual seat, the one that no one else ever dared use even when he wasn’t present. Like Mr. Jones’s booth in the Jolly Roger, it was permanently reserved and only a choice few could sit with him without an express invitation. But unlike the sleek nightclub filled with the rich and idle where Will now spent his nights, The Outlaw Bar and Restaurant was much more downmarket. Instead of bottle service with top-shelf liquor and a separate cigar menu offered by flirty girls dressed in little more than sheer stockings and stiletto heels, there were baskets of greasy fries and a surly, tattooed bartender in a wife-beater who would grudgingly list the beers available on tap if prodded enough. The Jolly Roger’s black leather banquettes and polished dance floor were worlds away from the Outlaw’s plain wood tables and chairs and peeling vinyl tile, no one was dressed in a suit and Will had gone back to his old uniform of beat-up jeans and faded T-shirt for this particular visit.
His leather jacket was new though, butter-soft lambskin bought full price from the kind of store he could only afford to shoplift at when he was growing up.
Very curious right now as to how Cas and Sam go from struggling with Dean to getting him into the dungeon, since I’m assuming it happens right after, and he doesn’t appear to be injured in the sneak peek so I’m taking it they don’t have to knock him out to get him in there? Who knowssss…
So the scene of Dean flying against the wall wasn’t from that explosion, but from Metatron. I’m just gonna make an assumption that they scuffle, Dean gets his ass kicked, and Metatron flees. I’m now assuming he definitely won’t be dying this season, especially since Misha hinted that the storyline with Metatron extends into season 10.
Now that last shot…is he broadcasting something over the radio perhaps? I’m thinking this is probably near the end of the episode, he says “it will be glorious”…so what is he doing exactly? Unleashing something on to earth? Also look how antiquated his microphone is…
