bane james

I just pictured Tessa Gray seeing Alec Lightwood sitting with Magnus Bane and for a split second she thought she saw her husband laughing with his old friend and Jem asks why she’s crying but then he sees it to and he smiled softly and wipes away Tessa’s tears and I just died a little

I envy the future generations that won’t need to wait years to be able to read all of the Shadowhunter Chronicles’s books and rather will be able to read them all in one go and not suffer from not knowing what will happen next 

Well, it’s a bit ironic, isn’t it?”
“What do you mean?”
“All that effort to convince you I wasn’t in love with you, and here I am, dying in your arms.

  • James: "Hello, Uncle Brother Zachariah. I would say that I'm sorry to bother you, but I'm sure this is the most excitement you've had all year. Not so lively in the City of Bones, now is it?"
  • Will: "James! Don't talk to Jem like that."
  • Brother Zachariah: As if I am not used to badly behaved Herondales.
  • James: "I suppose the difference is that Father always cared what you thought about him, and I don't. But don't take it personally, Uncle Jem. I do not care what anybody thinks."

My only problem with the Herondale’s is their lack of imagination. Jace’s full name is Jonathan Christopher Herondale and Kit’s is Christopher Jonathan Herondale. Like bro, there’s more than two names

TBC/James Herondale

I LOVED WHEN MAGNUS MET JAMES IN THE MIDNIGHT HEIR AND JAMES TELLS MAGNUS HIS NAME IS JAMES HERONDALE AND MAGNUS SAID “I thought it would be something like that” BECAUSE OF COURSE THAT’S HIS NAME,, of fucking course Will and Tessa named him after Jem, that’s such a them thing to do. If Magnus knew anything about A Tale of Two Cities and how much they love it, I don’t doubt he would have been amused by Lucie’s name I love them so much okay

I never had to ask Will what he was thinking. In fact, it was usually better not to ask Will what he was thinking….

Just Curious...

Who is your favorite character from any of Cassandra Clare’s books? 
Mine is and probably always will be Jem AND Magnus. Not as a couple, just separately. They both have really enjoyable characteristics and both have great personalities, even thought they’re completely different. I love them both. Simon is up there too.

  • Will: If I was ever trapped in a room full of explosives and the only way out was to befriend a duck, I would rather die.
  • Jem: How would you even get into that situation?
