After the Bridge: The Full Story (Jem/Tessa)


hi Cassie! idk if you’ve noticed, but I think you’ve invoked a small (and quite entertaining) url revolution. — hornyjem

I did. I am very proud. :)

This is the full story of After the Bridge, a tale for those who might have wondered what Tessa and Jem did after they met on Blackfriars Bridge in the epilogue of Clockwork Princess. If you’ve been waiting to read it until it was done, it is now done.

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. This is Part Five, the full story. 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.)

Yes, she will!

I will! And Also the TDA and TLH. 

If you are looking for a particular card, check out the Shadowhunter Flower tag on my tumblr, or Cassandra Clare’s blog, all the cards that have been posted so far aught to be in that tag. If it isn’t there, then likely it hasn’t been posted yet! 


Hours and hours and hours and hours of boredom and misery.

Every time I see it, I remember the horror.

The horror of that terrible OS.

I think you might have to buy it on another site, as Amazon is raising prices on Hachette books and inflating shipping times to win a negotiation. They’re also making pre-orders unavailable on forthcoming titles, which is why, if you look at the Amazon page for Darkest Part of the Forest, it is super weird and the books seems un-buyable.

However, Barnes & Noble has Coldtown for 12.35, Powells has it for 13.50 and you can go to Indiebound to see how much it costs at a local store near you. And, of course, you could go to your local library and see if its either there or if you could request it via interlibrary loan.

I am sorry about all this — and I am really frustrated with Amazon. These tactics affect authors and books far more than they will ever affect publishers. 

Anyway, however you wind up getting the book, I really hope you like it.

Signal boosts a) alternate buy links for Coldest Girl because it is rad and b) the explanation of the situation.

Reblog because Amazon has been hurting me too with their bullying tactics. Yenpress is a part of Hachette, which means my comics are too. Check out the alternative websites if the prices are too high, or you can find my books in stores. I know the Miss Peregrine Graphic Novel has even been in Target even. 

Me and apolloonfire! He showed me one of the pretty foresty areas. It was so relaxing even if it was just digital.

"You’re not Will"


Hi, Cassie! So, it has been more than a year since the release of CP2 and I still didn’t get over it. I feel both happy and depressed when I think about this series. And I know that we will still see the characters in TLH, but it will not be the same, because it will be in their children points of view. So, I was wondering… you have written many extra scenes for TMI, and scenes from different characters POVs (like Jace’s, when it was Clary’s POV in the book). Are you planning on sharing with us any more scenes like that from TID? I wouldn’t mind at all a POV of Jem’s, specially that scene from the CP2 epilogue ♥ Thank you so much, and I’m super excited for CoHF and your coming to Brazil! — fairchild-gray-fray

I’ve never written the scene on the bridge from Jem’s point of view because Jem knows way too much about what happens in City of Heavenly Fire. It would, bizarrely, be spoilery for TMI. So maybe TMI is done; we’ll see. 

If you want to read Jem’s POV on the bedroom scene with Tessa in Clockwork Prince, though, I wrote that. It’s called An Offering of Moonlight. I’ll paste it in, though many of you may have read it before — it’s not new. Under the cut, from the chapter “Fierce Midnight” in CP. There’s also “Burning Bright" which is Jem’s perspective on meeting Tessa for the first time.*

*And now  I noticed the first thing Jem ever says to Tessa is “You’re not Will.” Huh.

** Ooh, Cassandra Jean gave me a Jessa scrap the other day. Now I get to use my scrap!

the scrap has been used. It was a successful scrap. 

(p.s. I like the word scrap)


She said it, and I heard it, and I couldn’t not.

if only…. if only *wishful thinking*
