ch: cecily herondale

Cecily and Gabriel’s little Anna was a year older than James, and had already blazed her way through the Institute. She sometimes made attempts to go for walks on her own in London, but was always blocked by Auntie Jessamine, who stood guard by the door. Whether or not Anna knew that Auntie Jessamine was a ghost was unclear. She was simply the loving, ethereal force by the doorway who shooed her back inside and told her to stop taking her father’s hats.

“because will herondale” should be an acceptable excuse

Imagine if Cecily wanted a dog when she was little
  • Like, young Cecily goes to her parents to ask for a puppy.
  • Cecily: Mom, Dad, can I please have a puppy? For my birthday, maybe?
  • Mrs. Herondale: Cecily, my dear, dogs take a lot of responsibility. They need to be trained, otherwise they'll run up and down the house making a huge mess, break things, get all dirty in the garden...
  • Cecily: Just like Will does?
  • Mr. Herondale: And dogs don't stay puppies forever. It would grow up and get bigger.
  • Cecily: So will Will.
  • Mrs. Herondale: And puppies poop, you know?
  • Cecily: What do you think Will does at the bathroom, mother?
  • Mr. Herondale: Well, Cecily, what we're trying to say is: dogs can cause a lot of trouble.
  • Cecily: So can Will, yet you still keep him.
  • Ella: *high fives Cecily*
No lamentes demasiado las decisiones que tomaste en el pasado. Solo toma las correctas en el futuro… Somos capaces de cambiar, y capaces de ser lo mejor que podemos ser, siempre.

  • Will: You can't be married Cecily! You're only fifteen! When I get married, I'll be eighteen! An adult!
  • Cecily: We may have a long engagement. But I cannot see why you are counseling me to marry a man my parents have never met.
  • Will: I am not counseling you to marry a man your parents have never met!
  • Cecily: Then we are in agreement. Gabriel must meet Mom and Dad.
  • Me: *puts down book and slowly claps hands*
Under-appreciated female character alert

Okay everyone, listen up. I am starting a much-needed Cecily Herondale fanclub. 

Because…#i mean seriously #”i’ve always wanted to see hell” #she jumped on a demonic worm #and #freaking 5 #she rated his fuckign kiss guys #why don’t we love her more

Who’s in?

if i ever feel sad about the infernal devices, i just imagine will in heaven saying ‘YES JACE KISS HER. THAT’S MAH BOY - NO! SHE IS NOT YOUR SISTER. NO’ while cecily face-palms with sophie when she hears him

and somewhere in the distance, gabriel and gideon are oggling at isabelle like ‘damn it gabriel, why is she your decendant - this is so unfair’ ‘well gideon, we all knew i’m the handsomest out of the two of us’ ‘yeah right - that’s all cecily mate’ ‘fuck you’

  • Will: Why are we bringing [Gabriel] along, again?
  • Cecily: Why are you bringing Tessa?
  • Will: Because Tessa and I are going to be married
  • Cecily: Well, Gabriel and I might well be married. Someday.
  • Gabriel: *makes choking noise and turns purple*
