The Infernal Devices AU (2/??)>>(Post epilogue) Jem and Tessa go to watch a movie togetherAnd it was only halfway through the movie, that Jem realised how much the roles had reversed. Back in 1878 he was the one guiding her through both London and the roles of the Shadow world. Easing her into their ways and lifestyle. And here she was, showing him how the world had evolved but not bombarding him with knowledge. Even the movies they had seen so far had all had either had something either supernatural in it, or it was set in the victorian era (she had quite the rant on what adaption of Pride and Prejudice was her favourite). The one they were watching now had vampires. Admittedly, the vampires had sparkled, but it was based off a book Tessa had read, and she had wanted to see it. Jem, ever her faithful companion, had come along as well. The idea of moving pictures did unnerve him quite a bit, but he was slowly getting used to it.
Places in The Infernal Devices: Cadair Idris, Wales;
Will stood atop Cadair Idris, the reins of his horse in his hand.
As he had ridden toward Dolgellau, he had seen the massive wall of Cadair Idris towering above the Mawddach estuary, and the breath had gone out of him in a gasp—he was here. He had climbed this mountain before, as a child, with his father, and those memories stayed with him as he left the Dinas Mawddwy road and pounded toward the mountain on the back of Balios, who seemed still to be fleeing the flames of the village they had left behind them. They had continued through a weedy tarn—the silvery sea could be seen in one direction, and the peak of Snowdon in the other—up to the Nant Cadair valley. The village of Dolgellau below, sparkling with occasional light, made a pretty picture, but Will was not admiring the view. The Night Vision rune he had given himself allowed him to track the footsteps of the clockwork creatures. There were enough of them that the ground was torn where they had walked down the mountain, and he followed with a pounding heart the path of ruination toward the peak of the mountain.
Their tracks led up past a tumble of massive boulders Will remembered were called the moraine. They formed a partial wall that protected Cwm Cau, a small valley atop the mountain in whose heart rested Llyn Cau, a clear glacial lake. The tracks of the clockwork army led from the edge of the lake—
Will stood, looking down at the cold, clear waters. In the daylight, he recalled, this view was magnificent: Llyn Cau pure blue, surrounded by green grass, and the sun touching the razor-sharp edges of Mynydd Pencoed, the cliffs surrounding the lake.
He felt a million miles from London.
My Dear Mrs. Branwell,Forgive me for troubling you at what must be a distressing time for your household.

The door opened again, and Cyril came in, followed by a young girl of about fifteen. She wore a black traveling cloak over a green dress. Even if Tessa had not seen her before, she would have known who she was instantly - known her by her black hair, by the violet-blue of her eyes, by the graceful curve of her white throat, the delicate angles of her features, the full swoop of her mouth.
She heard Will draw a sudden, violent breath.
"Hello," said the girl, in a voice both surprisingly soft and surprisingly firm. "I apologize for interrupting your dinner hour, but I had nowhere else to go. I am Cecily Herondale, you see. I have come to be trained as a Shadowhunter.
Life is full of risks. Death is much simpler.

The Mortal Instruments Cast: Interviews - Best Moments Part 1
I always loved telling stories. I was in a show when I was two years old in England and I have always played dress up and I have always read books with accents, and I have always wanted to be a part of storytelling. Acting was always a dream of mine.
OTP’s first meeting x
I JUST WANT TO TALK ABOUT THIS PART FOR A MOMENT.
Because Magnus is just being flirty and smirking at Alec the way he’s done for a million people before.
But Alec’s face, man.
He just kind of mini-smiles like, “You think I’M hot? Really?”
This is the guy that we have seen frown so aggressively throughout the whole movie that his anger could have cracked the screen.
But when some random warlock boy calls him hot, he relents a cute little smirk thing and ugh.
In that split second, he was so Alec Lightwood. Shy and adorkable.
Just let me love you, Kevin Zegers.
And I’m finished.
casual reminder that this is the only time Alec smiles in the whole movie
behold my god damn otp
Friendly reminder that it was the innocence on Alec’s face in this moment that truly intrigued Magnus (“You are totally without guile”) and made his attraction to Alec whirl past physical attraction.
WORD. FOR F***ING. WORD. ♥_♥
