New CARSTADALE HERONSTAIRS Snippet from Cassandra Clare

After Cassandra Clare saw some Jem and Will artwork on tumblr, she decided it would be a "HERONSTAIRS DAY." And so, today, we get to read some new dialogue from Will and Jem -also known as Carstadale or Heronstairs!
Check out this very Heronstairs-y snippet:
"I love you," Will said. "I love you desperately. I have never felt for another the way I feel for you. My love for you is as eternal as the sea, and like the rocks against which the waves are dashed, again and again, it shall remain unyielding. In you I have found my own heart’s heart, which I had thought previously only to find in dreams. Never could I have encompassed a better partner, a finer friend, a more beauteous companion. Allow me just once to kiss your sweet lips."
Jem looked up from the fire, where he was petting Church. Church had fallen asleep and all his fur was sticking up. “I do wish you would cease reading to me from Gothic novels,” he said. “They give me the pip.”
"Love is a noble emotion!" Will cried, waving his arms about with such energy that the book he was reading slid from his lap. His hair was sticking up like Church’s fur, or a bit as if he had been electrocuted.
"Quite," said Jem, and rolled over onto his back, smiling up at Will from his place by the fire. Church twitched and snuffled, curling up against his shoulder. "Now read me something with a fight scene in it, won’t you?"

Feb. 20: Clockwork Princess snippet: Talking about Jessamine

We are less than a month away from the Clockwork Princess release and tomorrow, the Clockwork Princess book trailer will be revealed on (Entertainment Weekly).
Check out the less-than-one-month-away snippet from tumblr:
Charlotte shook her head. “There is a need here for mercy and pity. Jessamine is not what she once was — as any of you would know if you had visited her in the Silent City.”
“I have no wish to visit with traitors,” said Will.

Don't be fooled by the word "London," this snippet could come from either The Bane Chronicles, City of Heavenly Fire, or Lady Midnight (Dark Artifices #1) too.

Jan. 30: New Clockwork Princess snippet with Tessa and a mystery person

Tessa couldn’t help herself; despite everything, she giggled. “It laces,” she whispered. “In the back,” and she guided his hands around her until his fingers were on the strings of the corset. She shivered then, and not from cold, but from the intimacy of the gesture.

Who do you think the mystery person could be?

Jan. 28: MTV Movie Brawl -Clockwork Princess snippet

A new snippet as a congratulations from Cassie for 2nd place in the MTV movie brawl.
The Hunger Games fandom: Congrats, you are awesome!
TMI/TiD fandom: Congrats as well, you are also awesome! Of course, I love you, and am biased, but I think in this case, bias is okay. It is so fantastic that you guys made it to the final round of the MTV movie brawl; I mean you beat Man of Steel and Iron Man 3 and Stark Trek: Into Darkness, and that is like, amazing. You should be crazy proud for coming in second. I mean, what came in second last year? The Hunger Games.

As MTV says: “The strong showing from the Shadowhunters proved that the YA adaptation is a force to be reckoned with.”Well, I could have told them you were a force to be reckoned with. :) And:
That is, actually, a phenomenal accomplishment, doing that well so early.
Here is the new Clockwork Princess snippet: 
Will looked at his sister. “And you don’t care about being a Shadowhunter. How is this: I shall write a letter and give it to you if you promise to deliver it home yourself — and not to return.”
Cecily recoiled; she had many memories of shouting matches with Will, of the china dolls she had owned that he had broken by dropping them out an attic window; but there was also kindness in her memories: the brother who had bandaged up a cut knee, or retied her hair ribbons when they came loose. That kindness was absent from the Will who stood before her now. Her mother had used to cry for the first year or two after Will went; she had said, in Welsh, holding Cecily to her, that they — the Shadowhunters — would “take all the love out of him.” A cold, unloving people, she had told Cecily, who had forbidden her marriage to her husband. What could he want with them, her Will, her little one?
“I will not go,” Cecily said, staring her brother down. “And if you insist that I must, I will — I will —”
The door of the attic slid open and Jem stood silhouetted in the doorway…

Jan. 21: New Clockwork Princess Snippet

For celebrating the victory of MTV's movie brawl round: 3, Cassie shows us Clockwork Princess snippet w/an illustration
(Woolsey and Magnus by Cassandra Jean, part of the postcard pack [Cassandra Clare will] be giving out on tour.)
Rage flared up in Tessa and she considered belting Woolsey with the poker whether he came near her or not. He had moved awfully quickly while fighting Will, though, and she didn’t fancy her chances. “You don’t know James Carstairs. Don’t speak about him.”
“Love him, do you?” Woolsey managed to make it sound unpleasant. “But you love Will, too.”
Tessa froze. She had known that Magnus knew of Will’s affection for her, but the idea that what she felt for him in return was written across her face was too terrifying to contemplate.

Jan, 17: New Clockwork Princess Snippet

Reward for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones movie advancing onto Round 3 of MTV's movie brawl 2013, Cassie presents us with a Clockwork Princess snippet!
“Will.” Tessa caught at his wrist. “You would not abandon me now — not leave me the only one who still hopes? I cannot do it without you.”
He took a deep breath, half-closing his shadowed blue eyes. “Of course not. I will help. I will continue. It is only —”
He broke off, turning his face away. The light that came down through the window high above illuminated cheek and chin and the curve of his jaw.

“Only what?”
“You remember what else I said to you that day — that day in the drawing-room?”

Jan. 14: New Clockwork Princess snippet

As a reward for the City of Bones movie placing first in Round #1 of MTV's Movie Brawl 2013, Cassie gives us a Clockwork Princess snippet!
“Why?” Gabriel asked. “Why are you so sure that Charlotte’s side is the right one?”
“Because our father’s is not,” said Gideon. “Because I know Charlotte. Because I have lived among these people for months and they are good people. Because Charlotte Branwell has been nothing but kind to me. And Sophie loves her.”
“And you love Sophie.”
Gideon’s mouth tensed.
“She’s a mundane and a servant,” said Gabriel. “I don’t know what you expect to come of it, Gideon.”
“Nothing,” Gideon said roughly. “I expect nothing. But the fact that you believe I should shows that our father brought us up to believe that we should do right only if some reward was the result. I will not betray the word I have given Charlotte; that is the situation, Gabriel. If you do not want a part of it, I can send you to live with the Blackthorns. But I will not lie to Charlotte.”
“Yes, you will,” said Gabriel. “We are both going to lie to Charlotte. And I will tell you why.”

Dec, 28: New Clockwork Princess Snippet

As a gift for the end of 2012 from Cassie 
Tessa reached to brush the damp hair from his forehead. He leaned into her touch, his eyes closing. “Jem—have you ever—” She hesitated. “Have you ever thought of ways to prolong your life that are not a cure for the drug?”
At that his eyelids flew open. “What do you mean?”
She thought of Will, on the floor of the attic, choking on holy water. “Becoming a vampire. You would live forever—”
He scrambled upright against the pillows of the bed. “Tessa, no. Don’t—you can’t think that way.”
“Is the thought of becoming a Downworlder truly so horrible to you?”
“Tessa …” He exhaled slowly. “I am a Shadowhunter. Nephilim. Like my parents before me. It is the heritage I claim, just as I claim my mother’s heritage as part of myself. It does not mean I hate my father. But I honor the gift they gave me, the blood of the Angel, the trust placed in me, the vows I have taken. Nor, I think, would I make a very good vampire. [redacted for spoilers] I would no longer be Will’s parabatai, no longer be welcome in the Institute. No, Tessa. I would rather die and be reborn and see the sun again, than live to the end of the world without daylight.”
“A Silent Brother, then,” she said.

His eyes softened slightly. “The path of Silent Brotherhood is not open to me.”

Dec. 3rd: New Clockwork Princess Snippet

Apology Snippet
Originally Cassie, Maureen, and Sarah were going to tell us about some BIG news involving Shadowhunters and the initial 'M'.
Unfortunately, today Cassie announces that they can't, today. Cassie pinky promises that they will share the news next week.

Don't fret; instead Cassie gives us a sweet + sorrow piece of Clockwork Princess.
“You do not want to help us,” Will said to Magnus. “You do not want to position yourself as an enemy of Mortmain’s.”
“Well, can you blame him?” Woolsey rose in a whirl of yellow silk. “What could you possibly have to offer that would make the risk worth it to him?”
“I will give you anything,” said Tessa in a low voice that Will felt in his bones. “Anything at all, if you can help us help Jem.”
Magnus gripped a handful of his black hair. “God, the two of you. I can make inquiries. Track down some of the more unusual shipping routes. Old Molly —”
“I’ve been to her,” Will said. “Something’s frightened her so badly she won’t even crawl out of her grave.”
Woolsey snorted. “And that doesn’t tell you anything, little Shadowhunter? Is it really worth all this, just to stretch your friend’s life out another few months, another year? He will die anyway. And the sooner he dies, the sooner you can have his fiancée, the one you’re in love with.” He cut his amused gaze toward Tessa. “Really you ought to be counting down the days till he expires with great eagerness.”

Unidentified Snippet Nov. 25th

Sunday, November, 25th Cassie gave us an Unidentified Snippet

Belatedly, she realized something else. “Do you … have anything?”
He didn’t seem to have recovered from her last comment. “But do you mean — wait, do I have what?”
She slitted her eyes at him. “Something important.”
“Like what? The phone number for the White House?” A moment later, under her withering glare, realization dawned. “Oh.” His was the expression of someone who has run out of gas in the middle of the desert, miles from help. “I … “

Nov. 17: New Clockwork Princess Snippet

On Sunday, November, 17, Cassandra Clare Surprised us With a New Clockwork Princess Snippet

Jem always said that Will rushed toward the end of a mission rather than proceeding in a measured manner, and that one must look at the next step on the path ahead, rather than the destination in the distance, or one would never reach one’s goal. Will closed his eyes for a moment. He knew that Jem was right, but it was hard to remember, when the goal that he sought was the girl that he loved.

Clockwork Princess Snippet on Oct. 25

New Snippet of the Clockwork Princess
“Jem told me what Ragnor Fell said about my father,” Will said. “That for my father, there was only ever one woman he loved, and it was her for him, or nothing. You are that for me. I love you, and I will only ever love you until I die —”
