court scenes

anonymous asked:

Can you please give me hope for clace I'm begging you

  • The scene at the end of 2x08 definitely had a lot of good tension between the two of them, so we know Clace is not completely gone
  • We’re probably going to get a lot of Clace scenes in the last couple episodes before the hiatus because Jace is back in full protector mode
  • The seelie court scene will be coming early in 2b which will only be fuel to the Clace fire
  • It’s obvious to literally everyone except maybe Clary that Jace is still very much in love with her
  • Todd said there was going to be a clace kiss in 2a and he better not have been lying to me or will be very disappointed
  • sebastian coming in in 2b is probably going to push them closer together 
  • we’ve hit a few bumps in the road so far this season but we will get Clace

“Here’s a real question: how have you survived this long when you’re so violently self-destructive?

Andrew cocked his head to one side in a question. Neil didn’t know if Andrew was playing stupid to rile him or if Andrew really was oblivious. Either way it was frustrating. He wondered why no one else had caught on, or if people noticed and just didn’t care enough to say it. Now that Neil saw it, though, he couldn’t look past it. Anytime the Foxes mentioned Andrew’s upcoming sobriety or Andrew’s name popped up in write-ups on the team’s performance at games, the focus was on what a danger he was. People talked about his trial and how it saved them from Andrew. No one said what they were doing to save Andrew from himself.

If you think I’m over these two, you’re absolutely in the wrong.
I will never get over them, I’m in hell.

“Time was nothing. Seconds were days, were years, were the breaths that caught between their mouths and the bite of Neil’s fingernails against his palms, the scrape of teeth against his lower lip and the warm slide of a tongue against his. He could feel Andrew’s heartbeat thrumming against his wrists, a staccato rhythm that echoed in Neil’s veins. 

How a man who viewed the world with such studied disconnect could kiss like this, Neil didn’t know, but he wasn’t going to complain.

Andrew shuts the door behind him and tells himself that he isn’t going out of his way to be quiet so he won’t wake up Neil. He’s starting to believe Neil’s onto something when he calls Andrew a terrible liar, but he’d never admit that to his face.

Out of spite and anger at that realization, Andrew lets his keys clatter on the table as he sets them down, along with his bags from where he was travelling with his team. He only succeeds in rousing the cats; Neil sleeps like the fucking dead.

King meows noisily at Andrew’s feet while Sir makes himself at home on the kitchen table. Andrew says “no” a few times, but the dumb things keep looking at him, so he scratches behind their ears until they sniff and go away. They got the cats because Neil didn’t like being alone when Andrew was at games and cats could more or less take care of themselves if they were gone for a day. If their schedules both meant they were gone for a few days, one of the Foxes would catsit, usually Matt or Renee. They joked that they were the godparents, much to Andrew’s chagrin.

He wondered at how domestic he’d become and the clench in his gut at the thought is still there, though it lessened a bit every day. He still woke up most days waiting for the other shoe to drop and the cats moving in the middle of the night still startled him, but he feels…settled. And that scares him more than anything else.

He walks into the bedroom and it isn’t until he’s down to his tank top and boxers and is crawling into bed that Neil finally stirs with a groan. When he sees Andrew, his face breaks into a sleepy smile and he says, groggily, “You’re home.”

His Neil isn’t usually like this. Neil’s not soft, or nice, even after all these years. His Neil screams at matches on TV and tells off reporters who dare to bring up his past in interviews. His Neil pisses Andrew off to no end by stealing the covers and letting the cats on the bed and asking Andrew to go to Aaron’s wedding when Andrew wants to throw the invitation away.

They’re not soft people; they love with all they have and fight with it too. But there are moments like this, when Andrew’s tired and something in him slips and cracks, where he lays down next to Neil and brushes his fingers over the scars on Neil’s face, the most beautiful part of him, and whispers, “Yeah. I’m home.”


“Except when it’s no,” Andrew said.

Neil put a plastic-wrapped finger to Andrew’s chin, guiding his head up for another kiss. “If you have to keep asking because–I’ll answer it as many times as you ask. But this is always going to be yes.”

“Don’t ‘always’ me.”

“Don’t ask for the truth if you’re just going to dilute it.”

the first time Neil enters the room of the monsters is by lockpicking the door when Andrew was in his room and went through Neil’s stuff, Andrew reacts by telling him he was in the wrong room in a mocking fashion.

Now, in trk, Neil enters by merely knocking before opening the door after Nicky had asked him for help talking Andrew into meeting Nicky’s parents. Andrew’s reaction? He’s talking to him as if he was talking to Renee. He seems almost happy to see him? (At least the exclamation mark reads like he wasnt as apathic as he is usually)

Mind you, this is the scene that follows the talk Neil and Renee had about Andrew’s sexuality, so I might even take a leap of faith and say Renee told Andrew that Neil know’s he’s gay and that he had no bad reaction to it.

But you know what really fucking sucks? Everything happening afterwards, cuz I bet Andrew had been on a good path to actually trusting Neil here.
