Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I love you for a thousand more
A bright light lit her vision to scarlet, and she fell back against the sand, wondering if she was going to pass out—or maybe she was dying—but she didn’t want to die, not now that she could see Jace’s face so clearly in front of her. She could almost hear his voice, too, saying her name, the way he’d whispered it at Renwick’s, over and over again. Clary. Clary. Clary.

They moved together down the zigzag path, weapons drawn and at the ready, the sky lit red by the burning Gard behind them. But they saw no demons. The stillness and eerie light made Clary’s head throb; she felt as if she were in a dream. Exhaustion gripped her like a vise. Just putting one foot in front of the other was like lifting a block of cement and slamming it down, over and over. She could hear Jace and Alec talking up ahead on the path, their voices faintly blurred despite their proximity.

That’s why this fandom is the greatest and The Mortal Instruments will be the love of my life. Because of the glory of those wonderful tweets I’m vomiting rainbows whole day.
Lily Collins was cast as Clary in The Mortal Instruments. For the first time creators didn’t ultimately fail at casting an actress and found someone who fits the description of a character.
