Today has been a very busy day for Shadowhunters (and Downworlders :P ) as Cassie Clare releases two new snippets from Clockwork Princess at the request of fans on Tumblr.
The first includes Sophie and Gideon, two characters that aren't often requested so thankfully Cassie was feeling generous.
Gideon touched her cheek, lightly, with the tips of his fingers. “Did you know your name means ‘wisdom’? It was very well-given.” LinkThis is sweet, don't you think? What do you think this implies in regards to their relationship?
Onto the next and this time it's Will and Tessa (listens to hearts break across the universe), and Tessa seems to be expressing what most of us fans feel towards Cassie's book series. *sigh*
Let us know your theories about what either of these snippets mean by commenting below.Tessa craned her head back to look at Will. “You know that feeling,” she said, “when you are reading a book, and you know that it is going to be a tragedy; you can feel the cold and darkness coming, see the net drawing tight around the characters who live and breathe on the pages. But you are tied to the story as if being dragged behind a carriage and you cannot let go or turn the course aside.” His blue eyes were dark with understanding — of course Will would understand — and she hurried on. “I feel now as if the same is happening, only not to characters on a page but to my own beloved friends and companions. I do not want to sit by while tragedy comes for us. I would turn it aside, only I struggle to discover how that might be done.”“You fear for Jem,” Will said.“Yes,” she said. “And I fear for you, too.”“No,” Will said, hoarsely. “Don’t waste that on me, Tess.” Link
