Have a nice 4CC everyone! x

You taught me the courage of stars before you left.
How light carries on endlessly, even after death.
With shortness of breath, you explained the infinite.
How rare and beautiful it is to even exist.

I couldn’t help but ask
For you to say it all again.
I tried to write it down
But I could never find a pen.
I’d give anything to hear
You say it one more time,

That the universe was made
Just to be seen by my eyes.

Cassie, From reading the infernal devices, I think that it is fair to say that us fandom would assume based on Will and Jem’s character that Will would be (lest us admit it people) rough in bed and Jem a more gentle lover. Yet Will asked Tessa how to undo a corset, his gentleness displayed if not in his words but actions. While Jem basically rips off Tessa’s corset…. Why is this so? The only conclusion I can think of it that Will may have had experience in that genre, while Jem had been waiting over a century. O_o — callmetictac

My what a saucy question. I guess I should warn that the below will contain comments about sex? Not that that’s surprising.

1) I guess I would say there are two things happening here. One is a thing that happens a lot, which is an attempt to shove Will and Jem into the boxes of archetypal characters — Will the “bad boy” and Jem the “good one”, etc. And I play around with archetypes a lot, so I get that. But Will is not a bad boy, and Jem is not a good boy. Jem punched Will in the face, not the other way around. The big Jessa scene in Clockwork Prince basically went like “And now we make out like crazy, girl, and I would totally have sex with you except whoops THE FLOOR IS COVERED IN MY DRUGS.”

And there’s Will, who kisses Tessa sweetly and gently removes her glove, and pays for Jem’s drugs without mentioning it, and makes up silly songs. So which one is the wild sex machine in bed? I submit there is no way of knowing, because regardless of these points, you can’t actually tell from things like this anyway. The quietest kindest person can be a rough sex enthusiast and the loudest angriest person can wish to be held and called baby names.

2) The second thing happening here is forgetting that sex involves, usually, another person. In this case, that person is Tessa. When she sleeps with Will in Clockwork Princess, she is a grief-stricken terrified virgin. When she sleeps with Jem in After the Bridge, she is an experienced woman who has lived through all the years of a sexually active happy marriage. Do we not think it is likely the boys would take their cues from her and act accordingly? 

And while Jem and Will are both virgins when they first sleep with Tessa, Will is also a grief-stricken terrified virgin, and Jem is a man who has lived so long he has passed almost out of human experience. Even just one person is capable of having sex in a million different moods and ways, because sex is part of life and is affected by everything else happening in your life at the time you are having it, just as the same piece of music might make you happy or sad depending on the circumstances. 

Context, as they say, is everything.

Headcanon that Will is a side sleeper and he loves spooning with Tessa.

Headcanon that Tessa is also a side sleeper, but she really likes sleeping on Will’s chest when he’s laying on his back (as he’s prone to doing whilst reading in bed), but he always (gently) wakes her when he starts to fall asleep and goes to lay down on his side.

Headcanon that Jem is a back sleeper.

Headcanon that when Jem rejoins the land of the living, Tessa finally gets to spend the whole night sleeping with her head on Jem’s chest.

TS look SOO honeymoonish to me rn, starting with Scott being Tessa's sleeping beauty and just the way they took every opportunity to hug or hold hands at soi but at the same time they were literally having an intercourse on the ice they are so precious and they have never looked more like a couple to me. And also shoutout to the fact Tessa has been initiating 75% of the pda, and she just looks so in love with him, I honestly can't

Me. This is all my feels. 😍😍😍😍

Watch on

“I just had a daughter who was born 6 weeks early and weighed 2lbs 14oz at birth. I had already planned on naming her Tessa because your Tessa is such a strong woman and is a character I aspire for her to be like that. My daughter has already proven to me that fight and is making tremendous progress in coming home. I’ve started already reading Clockwork Angel to her to put her to sleep. I just wanted to thank you for creating such a wonderful woman and a wonderful series. They’ve both been an incredible comfort for me. — taylorbug93 “

Thank you so much! I wanted to tell you that my godsons were born exactly the same amount of time early. The first time I saw them was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and they looked small enough to fit into my pockets. That was two years ago. Now they’re running around and, as you can see in the video, memorizing the words to Let It Go.

And they can dance. Sort of.

Much of this is due to the fantastic child-raising of my best friend, their mom, and it sounds like you will be a similarly great mom. I hope that Shadowhunters the world over can take a moment to think of small Tessa and hope she comes home soon.


Jessa / Jem Learning About the Modern World for Anons


Jem was not particularly fond of some parts of the modern world. The noise of sirens outside their window at all hours, his inability to see the stars out his window, and the loud man next door who always seemed to be yelling were a few good examples. There were very few times when he didn’t miss his old London home. But his time as an immortal had taught him many things, and gracious acceptance of his circumstances was one of them. Plus, it was difficult to be angry when he had Tessa cuddled into his arms.

Tessa dozed comfortably on his chest, struggling to stay awake as Jem avidly watched the screen of her iPad. Tessa had just shown him the wonders of YouTube, and he was contentedly watching a string quartet play some piece. He’d told her the name, but she’d been so focused on him that she couldn’t remember it. She enjoyed music, but her interest in the impromptu concert couldn’t come close to rivaling her interest in him. 

Jem’s long fingers gently stroked her smooth cheek as he watched the cellist on screen play. Tessa sighed and sunk further into his grasp, comfortable and warm. Jem smelled of the ginger peach tea she’d brewed, of his old pajamas that she’d kept boxed, and his new body wash. Tessa was still struck by the absolute miracle that was his warm body pressed against hers. 

Jem sighed when the video finished and turned his head to press a tender kiss to her temple. “Time to sleep, Tess?”

Tessa sighed and gave a slow nod, setting her iPad in a nightstand drawer and snuggling into his side. “Goodnight, James.”

Jem smiled and, for the first time since leaving the Silent City, slept through the noise of a city that never sleeps.

[Jem] ‘It will help you sleep.’
'All I’ve been doing is sleeping!’ [Tessa]
'And very amusing it is to watch, said Jem. 'Did you know you twitch your nose when you sleep, like a rabbit?’
'I do not,’ she said, with a whispered laugh.
'You do,’ he said. 'Fortunately, I like rabbits.
