Tessa Gray and Jem Carstairs on Blackfriars Bridge. From the Infernal devices by Cassandra Clare.
“They walked to the center of the bridge, where Tessa leaned against a granite parapet and looked down. The Thames was black in the moonlight. The expanse of London stretched away on either bank, the great dome of St. Paul’s looming up behind them like a white ghost, and everything shrouded in the softening fog that laid a gently blurring veil over the harsh lines of the city."
A very hastily drawn Jem Carstairs [X], everyone, sporting a lovely T-shirt (text from [X]). I can imagine Will getting dramatically angry up in heaven as he looks down at this, calling it blasphemy to his name and all, but then he’d sigh and with a subtle smile, say, “James Carstairs… you disloyal bastard.” And so the wheel comes full circle.
“Your words have changed me, Tess; they have made me a better man than I have been otherwise. Life is a book, and there are a thousand pages I have not yet read. I would read them together with you, as many as I can, before I die”
