Cassandra Clare has shared the third part of her new short story After the Bridge (with Jem and Tessa). The fifth and final part will probably follow tomorrow.
Spoilers for Clockwork Princess.
A story for those who might have wondered what Tessa and Jem did after they met on Blackfriars Bridge in the epilogue of Clockwork Princess.
Those who do not like Tessa&Jem together or Jessa sexytimes probably should skip this. (You will not miss anything that will affect your understanding of later books.) Those who like that sort of thing will find this the sort of thing they like.
After the Bridge alternates POV between Jem and Tessa. It will be posted in installments. This is Part Two. It is not the whole story. There are more parts. As this is one short story and not chaptered, each post will contain the whole story from the beginning up to the point where that part ends so that new readers or readers who don’t remember what happened won’t have to hunt down the previous post(s.)
I just finished my signing tour in Brazil on Monday. Here is my video of the signing stage in Sao Paulo…a little intimidating as you can see!
Cassie, I just wanna say thank you for everything here in Brazil. We’re over moon and… I just don’t know, you made us very very happy and pround of being your fans. You’re the kindest person ever. Thank you again, love. Virna — isabelle-lightwood
Thank you! I had such a great time in Brazil meeting readers. You guys were so sweet. I hope to come back.
Hi Cassie! My name is Alessandra, I’m brazilian fan and I knew you on last monday in Rio de Janeiro. I wrote a letter for you, remember? Do you read? Please, tell me your answer!! — sweet-angels-and-demons
Hi Alessandra! I got so many letters and packages that we had them shipped from Brazil to my house. There was no suitcase big enough to hold them! I can’t wait to read them all when I get home. Letters are the best.
Speaking of which right now my inbox is full of messages from people I met at the fair or people I didn’t get a chance to meet. I’m technically on vacation with family right now, but I hope to get through all the messages, just don’t feel bad if it takes a while, it’s not you — it’s me!
Hi Cassie! I love your books and the characters you’ve created so much and thank you for sharing them with the world! I’ve just finished reading CoHF for the third time and I wanted to ask a question about the tapestry Emma and Jules look at towards the end of the book. My question is why is Clary “almost invisible” in the tapestry where Jace is in the front and center clearly visible? She was the one that killed Sebastian and my logic is that she should be in the front or at least side by side with Jace. Is it because of her ties with her father and brother that stands her apart from Jace because if anything Jace has greater ties than she does. Or is it something else entirely? I’m sure Clary wouldn’t even think twice about something as trivial as a tapestry with her in the background and wouldn’t mind at all. But I’m just curious as to why she’s set apart from Jace when she was just as much, if not more, involved with the ending of the Dark War than Jace was. — winchester-squared
Is this what you mean?
"There was another tapestry as well, this one looking newer and freshly hung, which showed the Angel rising out of the lake, this time without the Mortal Instruments. A blond man stood at the edge of the lake, and near him, almost invisible, was the figure of a slight girl with red hair, holding a stele… . “
That tapestry is meant to depict the events at the end of City of Glass, but the blond man isn’t Jace. It’s Valentine. Jace would have been “a blond boy” — he’s not a man, not quite yet!
Clary is depicted as smaller than Valentine to emphasize the fact that it was a David and Goliath type victory, with an underestimated hero going up against a much bigger/more powerful villain. Jace is not even pictured, due to being dead for much of this part of the book.
Perhaps it is confusing because the tapestry is “newer” but it’s only been a few months since the Mortal War and it takes time to make a tapestry. There are no tapestries depicting the events of the Dark War in the Gard. There hasn’t been time to commission one much less make one! I imagine that when there is one it will show Clary front and center, this time along with Jace, Alec, Simon and Isabelle.
