Tessa Gray - the one who endure


Happy Birthday, Cassandra Clare! (July 27, 1973)

“If people ever look down upon you for crying for fictional characters, you should give them a gentle, pitying look and feel bad for them. If they’ve never cried for a fictional character, then they’ve never loved one (and what a joy that is). If they’ve never cried at a book, a movie, a piece of music, then they’ve missed one of the great pleasures life has to offer. Just because fiction does not contain things that are real doesn’t mean it doesn’t contain truth, and we find it through the alchemy of our tears.”

“They’re not hideous,” said Tessa. Will blinked at her. “What?” “Gideon and Gabriel,” said Tessa. “They’re really quite good-looking, not hideous at all.” “I spoke,” said Will, in sepulchral tones, “of the pitch-black inner depths of their souls.” Tessa snorted. 
“And what color do you suppose the inner depths of your soul are, Will Herondale?” “Mauve,” said Will.”

Favorite TMI/TID quotes
Bloodthirsty little beasts. Never trust a duck
She just asked if she could touch my mango
Don't say you are sorry, say you'll train with me
Are you highly intoxicated at the moment?
I figured all your classes were stuff like Slaughter 101 and Beheading for Beginners
The only person who gets to canoodle in my bedroom is my magnificent self
Is the mortal cup Jace, not the mortal toilet bowl
I‘m a demon hunter, clearly, I am not afraid of the dark
Do people ever climb the demon towers? Like, for any reason?
The nod means, 'I' am a badass, and I recognize that you, too, are a badass
You asked me who I belong to. I belong to you
if you set yourself on fire deliberately, I will institute divorce proceedings
You love me, too, Lottie?
Why would I have a spider? Do I look like someone who would collect them?
What’s the word for a perfectly reasonable fear of annoying idiots?
You know, you really didn’t have to throw that man through the window
It's all right to love someone who doesn't love you back, as long as they're worth you loving them
What if I were to ask you...
Father is a worm

More of Cassandra Jean’s flower cards — we’re now onto The Infernal Devices, and these cards are done in oils, not watercolor. Jem and Will, together as always!

These two… THESE TWO (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ

TMI appreciation week:

Day 4: Favourite quote » 

Heroes aren’t always the ones who win,” she said. “They’re the ones who lose, sometimes. But they keep fighting, they keep coming back. They don’t give up. That’s what makes them heroes.” - "City of Heavenly Fire"  Chapter 3, page 95

"Such is the fate of heroes; the Angel knows why anyone would want to be one."

I’m painting my friend a canvas with a TMI quotes on it, but she wants either a Simon quote or a Jace one. What are your guys’ favorite Simon Lewis or Jace Wayland Morgenstern Lightwood Herondale quotes?😊❤

"Simon, it's me. It's Clary."

People often ask what the parabatai ceremony looks like, so I asked Cassandra Jean to render Emma and Julian’s, complete with the oath and the the three rings of fire — you step from your individual ring into the shared ring, and you draw the rune on each other. Don’t try the fire part at home.


'A ghost,' Magnus said. A smile hovered around his mouth. 'A spirit, sworn to protect the place. She's been there for a hundred and thirty years.'
'She?' Jocelyn said, leaning back against a dusty wall. 'A ghost? Really? What was her name?'
'You would recognize her last name, if I told it to you, but she wouldn't like that.' Magnus's gaze was faraway. 'I hope this means she's found peace.”
