Everyone is born, but not everyone is born the same. Some will grow to be butchers, or bakers, or candlestick makers. Some will only be really good at making Jell-O salad. One way or another, though, every human being is unique, for better or for worse.

i’m in my prime,
not withering and old.
but i refuse to play
your wicked games any longer.

i know this tether is unbreakable,
but you make me feel like i’m interchangeable.
you drew a target on my heart,
when did this become fatal attraction?

i don’t have the strength,
the energy,
nor the patience
to be held hostage by your love.

so baby please don’t despair
when i say that
i’ve found the courage to
let you go.

you were never meant to be tied down in the first place.

Where did you find the whipped cream?” he asked.
“You had milk, I had science,” said Jack. “It’s amazing how much of culinary achievement can be summarized by that sentence. Cheese making for example. The perfect intersection of milk, science, and foolish disregard for the laws of nature.

Hello Cassie! I adore your books, and I read them often; I wish to thank you for all that you've written, and thank you so much for each and every character. The character Alec helped me out through bad times, and he's the reason I was brave enough to come out :) I have a quick question, and I hope you can answer! Are there any minor details about Raphael that weren't in the books (like, ideas and such, or headcanons as fans call it)? Thanks for reading this, have a lovely day! ~Tommy

*hugs* There’s more about Raphael to be said, but fortunately we haven’t seen the last of him. One of the bonuses of writing in different time periods is seeing characters again, even if they died (assuming they don’t come back!) — for instance, The Lost Book of the White is set before Raphael’s death, and since he and Magnus were friends…I guess what I’m saying is that there are more details about Raphael to be learned and you can look to future books for them! 

Summary: Five snapshots of Jughead’s and Betty’s life when Jughead had nowhere to stay and Betty was hiding him in her room. 

Read on AO3

(Okay, I know this is long; I know. But seriously I can’t help the fact that I want to fill entire books with how adorably cute those two are! <3 So grab your snacks and drinks and dive in hahaha! Also I’m sorry if there are any typos, it’s really late and I’m way tired to notice my mistakes. I hope you all like it guys!!!) 

Two days had passed since the night Betty Cooper had stormed inside the Blue & Gold office like a wild force of nature, catching Jughead on the act as well as learning about his secret of not having a place of his own anymore, and coexisting under the same roof was going smoothly for the two friends. Every morning they would wake up way earlier than most people in their town, and especially than Betty’s parents, and Jughead, although not being a morning person, would sneak out with a grateful smile plastered on his lips and hands full with every new snack Betty seemed to always prepare for him, and every night she would sneak him back in once she knew her parents were retired to their bedroom for the night. Their system seemed to be flawless.

Today was a low-key Wednesday night and the first time they had the house entirely to themselves, since the Coopers had yet another late night at the newspaper, the two teens finally enjoying some peace and quiet without closed doors and hush whispers. Betty was sprawled over the bed, text books and colorful markers all around her as the blonde girl was trying to finish her homework, elbow holding herself up and chin resting on her palm, head aching over an answer sheet and calves crossing and uncrossing behind her. Jughead was over the window with blinds shut – he had made Betty promise that his secret would stay between them – sitting comfortably on her white desk chair and having his long legs crossed at the ankles, outstretched against the wooden window frame, while typing furiously on his laptop that rested on his lap. Since no one was at home he didn’t have to lurk at his usual booth at Pop’s. Plus, he found Betty’s presence a very good remedy for writer’s block.

Keep reading

Hey Cassie! I absolutely adore your books! I have two small questions. First, is Clave the real enemy of the Shadowhunters themselves? Second, will there be any developments on Kit and Ty in Lord of Shadows? Alec and Magnus' relationship really helped me come terms with my sexuality... thank you so much for that :)

Love your icon! Kit and Ty are significant and important characters in LoS. I promise you’ll see a lot of them both! I think they have a really interesting dynamic and oh nooo the no spoilers monster is dragging me awaaaayyyyyyyy…..


I haven’t read the sequel to The Diviners yet! I absolutely adored the first book in the series though. I’ve heard mixed reviews about Lair of Dreams, but I’m hoping I find it just as amazing as the first. I have such a huge soft spot for Flapper and the jazz age stories.


I read this book at work today because it looked adorable and I was not disappointed because the librarian just casually has a male partner.

This tiny mlm librarian gave me LIFE

Hi Cassie! First of all, I adore your books and I am so, so excited for Lord of Shadows to be released next month! I'm currently rereading Lady Midnight to prepare for the sob fest that will be LoS, but I have a couple questions that have been bothering me for awhile: 1. Emma's dream in LM says she used to live in Italy with her parents. I thought in COHF that she said she lived there her whole life? 2. I know it's a small thing, but how long were Cameron and Emma together? Thank you so much!

1) Okay that threw me too – then I realized Emma’s dream describes the “small white house in Venice” she lived in with her parents. That’s not Venice, Italy, though, that’s Venice Beach, Los Angeles. 


A very nice neighborhood, kind of hipster, with, yes canals, walking distance from the beach. I used to live there myself. Like all Conclave members who don’t live in an Institute, the Blackthorns would have had their own house in the geographical area falling under the jurisdiction of the LA Institute. 

2) Cameron and Emma dated on and off for a few years, sometimes officially and sometimes not. Sometimes exclusively and sometimes Not Exclusively (otherwise known as “"it is fine and not cheating if you date other people while casually dating me.”) I’m not sure it would be possible to add up all the disconnected months. They have however known each other most of their lives.
