The Aftermath of an Emotional Breakdown

 

A little maroon box labeled, “Positivity”

Little bits of paper

Different handwriting and different addressers,

but all the same addressee: me

Folded, torn, creased

They’re not in great condition,

but I like to keep them.

One I’ve had since I was eight.

The rest expanding from fourteen to now.

I like to remember the ordinary

Little glances into the year

Friends and smiles and tears

And it’s a shame that most are gone

since I was mad.

City of Sucker-Punches: Part One

City of Sucker-Punches: Part One

It’s not Thursday, but I finished City of Heavenly Fire on Friday, and I have a lot of words to say. This has become rather long, so I’m splitting it into two parts. 

Part One will look at three main characters who pull the story forward: Clary, Jace, and Sebastian. Those with many names. 

Part Two will look at everyone else: Alec, Isabelle, Simon, and Magnus (possibly)

As I wrote this, it became…

Almost There

I have one chapter and the epilogue left of City Of Heavenly Fire left to read. 

Then you will be getting one hell of a discussion/reaction. You might not even have to wait until next Thursday.

Because holy crap, these books have ruined me. 

The school year is starting up very soon, so depending on how busy I get, I may be doing my posts every other week.

But then again, there’s a possibility…

Will during the Infernal Devices

  • Will: Conceal, don't feel.
  • Will: Don't let them know.
  • Will: Don't them in, don't let them see.

I’m only on chapter 5 of City of Fallen Angels and I’m already falling apart. Like, I usually save this kind of compassion for Alec, but like Jace? It’s okay. You are precious and Clary loves you and it’s going to be okay. I don’t know how, but it is.

Usually Jace manages to break my heart in the, would you please stop being an idiot, kind of way, but this? The nightmares and the vulnerability and the vocal desperation? This is new.
