I’ll be auditioning for the role of Maureen Johnson and I will be singing Native American tribal chants backwards through my vocoder while accompanying myself on the electric cello - which I have never studied.
SARAH: Jasper from the 100! I’m so excited! I love the 100.
CASSIE: I know, score. *fistbump*
SARAH: My FAVORITE Jasper scene from the 100 was when Jasper hugs Bellamy.
CASSIE: Don’t remember that scene…
SARAH: Bellamy saved his life and Jasper hugged him so tightly!
CASSIE: Oh, sure. And then Bellamy swept him up in his arms and dramatically shut the spaceship door and who knows what happened inside… Why do you always make stuff up?
SARAH: I never make stuff up!
CASSIE: You told me there was a novel where Mr Darcy was a Navy SEAL.
SARAH: In a better world, that would’ve been true!
CASSIE: You can’t make up saucy stuff about our audiobook readers, Rees Brennan. I’m watching you. Watching you!
… Anyway, we are so thrilled, both because we watch and love the 100, and because Devon Bostick does such a great job as Jasper: a nerdy guy who loves a lady who loves another… yet who is extremely brave, kind, and valiantly rescues his team when they are in trouble. (Sound familiar?)
So we are sure he will be a perfect fit for our introduction to Simon Lewis, Shadowhunter in training: in some ways a different guy to the guy we knew–the guy he became–through the Mortal Instruments. We lost that guy, the TMI characters lost that guy, Simon himself lost that guy… and now Simon has to work out if he can get him back.
Happy Release Day to Angels Twice Descending, the last and final installment in Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy. In which, as we promised, someone dies, and some people live, and a cameo from an unexpected TID character appears.
We hope you enjoy it, as we loved writing it. My ever thanks go out to Maureen, Robin and Sarah, for playing in my world so successfully.
Goodbye to Simon and co for now, though they will be seen again in TDA and TWP, when we check back in on how they’re doing, who’s together, who’s doing what, etc.
