He wanted to make her laugh. He wanted to sit and listen to her talk about books until his ears fell off. But all these were things he could not want, because they were things he could not have, and wanting what you could not have led to misery and madness.
“You are as dear to me as another half of my soul, Jem. I could not be happy while you were unhappy.”
Will gave a short, disbelieving laugh. “It’s true,” he said. “I am no hero.”
“No,” Tessa said. “You are a person, just like me.” His eyes searched her face, mystified; she held his hand tighter, lacing her fingers with his. “Don’t you see, Will? You’re a person like me. You are like me. You say the things I think but never say out loud. You read the books I read. You love the poetry I love. You make me laugh with your ridiculous songs and the way you see the truth of everything. I feel like you can look inside me and see all the places I am odd or unusual and fit your heart around them, for you are odd and unusual in just the same way.” With the hand that was not holding his, she touched his cheek, lightly. “We are the same.”
Will and Tessa…
My heart, where is it?

I know how you are with your words, and, Will—I love all of them. Every word you say. The silly ones, the mad ones, the beautiful ones, and the ones that are only for me. I love them, and I love you… There are so many words I wish to say to you, and so many I wish to hear you say to me. I hope we have all our lives to say them to each other.
Oh, Herondale boys. ;)
Another entry into the Shadowhunter Tarot by Cassandra Jean.
*CP2 Spoiler* Will and Tessa in Cadair Idris, requested by Ivy (littleherondale)
“So Will and Jem are training, perhaps, getting all sweaty, and the training turns into a little mock tussling and they fall to the floor, Jem on top of Will, and exchange a long look, and then Jem leans in for a long kiss.. The weapons fall to the floor, unneeded…”
@CassieClare wrote this mini slash snippet for me to draw. I am having way too much fun. While Sarah and Maureen completely ask for this stuff too (I’m not letting y’all off the hook!)
Yep. I said all those things. But I was not expecting what Cassandra sent me back! Not that I mind. :P
So @CassieClare emailed me asking me to resend her that Will & Jem tarot card so she could post it. But I totally misread what she said and thought dirty thoughts. Which she then encouraged!! It’s all her fault you know!!
She described the scene..! Passionate! Out on night patrol together… things happen! (She said it herself! Totally canon!
Maybe. Probably not. I like to believe so. A gal can dream can’t she?)
You’ve carried on so long, you couldn’t stop if you tried it
