Heyy how are things, I was wondering if you could bless us with cute ( without heartbreaking ) herongraystairs headcanons

let’s go hella domestic because that is the mood I am in 

(i did laundry, I went to the bakery, i made homemade stew, I’m living the single housewife life today)

Jem likes to lay around and cuddle. He’s one of those people who can dedicate himself to getting things done and working hard but when he’s not dedicated to those things, he just lays around with his head on someone’s shoulder. 

Tessa and Will are more likely to fill space with chatter. They talk books. They make jokes. They debate and tease and argue. They’re not quiet people. Unless they’re reading then the room is a tomb until Will has something to say about what he is reading then he will interrupt her to read it to her. Sometimes she wants to kill him for this, usually she finds it cute. 

Tessa cooks because that is how you get food and she thinks going out too often is wasteful when you can make it cheaper at home. 

Jem cooks because he enjoys it. 

Will does not cook unless he is under duress.

Jem adopts animals. Tessa falls in love with them immediately. Will falls in love with them slowly but irreversibly. Will eventually even finds himself loving Church. 

Will’s the type to leave love notes around for other people to find. Jem mocks him for it but not-so-secretly loves finding notes in his violin case or tucked in with his socks. 

Tessa fusses. She fixes ties and tells them to change if their socks don’t match. 

Will can be obsessive with fashion but Tessa is careful with the day to day details. 

Tessa likes to play with hair (this is canon, she describes hair in more words than anyone else needs to use to describe hair). Don’t sit down with Tessa unless you’re willing to have your hair-do ruined because she will stroke and twirl and rearrange someone else’s hair for hours. Just absent petting. Both the boys love it. 

Jem is neat but bad at cleaning. He does things like meticulously sorts the recycling but then doesn’t actually take it out. Will is a disaster area. He leaves things all over the place. He probably actually believes in the magic coffee table (youtube link). Tessa likes things clean and organized and they drive her crazy sometimes. 

Will is good with money. Tessa is frugal to a fault. Jem spends too freely. Will is the one who manages money the best. He buys what needs bought and sometimes buys nice little gifts but he also budgets pretty well. He gets better as he gets older. 21 year old Will is worse at budgeting than 31 year old Will. 

They fit into each other well. They work out their fights quickly - it’s one place where having a third is most helpful. Tessa and Will are having a stupid conflict over laundry and Jem is able to talk them through it before it becomes a problem. Jem and Will are having a stupid conflict over Jem spending every Sunday in bed for 20 hours and Tessa is able to step in and talk them through it. 

They like to spend quiet mornings curled up together.

They are very happy. 

  • Me: *ships canon couples*
  • Me: *ships non canon couples*
  • Me: *ships random people with each other*
  • Me: *ships gay ships that will break my heart because they will never happen*
  • Me: *ships people from different fandoms together*
  • Me: *ships so many couples I can barely keep track of my OTP's*
  • Me: *ships so much my heart explodes*
  • Me: *ships*

Okay but if Jem Carstairs can be a good and kind person after being tortured nearly to death and being fatally ill for years after because of that, and hearing his parents scream for him whilst they were being tortured to death and then living in a place with a girl who hated them all, and a boy who tried to get everyone to hate him, then a girl who he is in love with, having the knowledge that he’d die before his time and never be able to live the entirety of his life with her, all whilst helping defeat the antagonists, protecting mundanes who would have been prejudiced against him due to his race (whilst being fatally ill), and never, ever complaining, then anyone can be a good and kind person too.

Platonic Marriage - imagine your brotp
  • Me: *looking fondly at my best friend*
  • Best Friend: What's wrong, bro?
  • Me: Bro, if there was some kind of platonic mariage for friends, i would have proposed the shit out of you by now.
  • Best Friend: Bro

TID Appreciation Week: Day Two (Favorite Ship) ⇢ Herongraystairs

❝ How they loved each other, these three, how they had suffered for each another, and yet how much joy they clearly took from simply being in the same room. ❞

Reblog this to appreciate Charlotte Branwell

Let’s remember that this woman was only in her twenties when she was taking care of a torn apart Herondale, a Carstairs who always thought he would die, and then a Gray who has no idea what she even is.
And run the London Institute at the same time.
And she didn’t even want any love in return for all the love that she gave.

Pick-ups

Will: Hey hey Jem are you a violin?

Will: because the sounds you make when I touch you are music to my ears~

Jem: WILLIAM WE ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A DEMON ATTACK THIS IS NOT THE TIME-

Will: but it seems you’re in the middle of an attack on my heart~

Jem: W I L L I A M

but wait can you imagine if Tessa had just stayed in America, like she never would have found out she was a warlock, but she would still have at some point stopped aging, like she’d just be sitting around at 150 years old looking 22 like “wtf when am i gonna die?”

Herongraystairs vs Kierarktina

“She will not love you as she loved Jem. She will love you as she loves you, Will, an entirely different person”.

- Clockwork Princess, Cassandra Clare

“I do not love you as I love Cristina. I love you as I love you,” said Mark.

- Lord of Shadows, Cassandra Clare

can you imagine will herondale getting attatched to fictional characters because they were the only ‘people’ he could love without them being in supposed danger

and him crying when a character dies because they’re the only things that keep him sane and understand him

will pairing characters with the people he loves based on personality (and/or appearance) so he can try to love the characters in place of the real people
