(Me) Hey folks. You're at part one of the treasure hunt for what we like to call the DSAS, or the Dirty Sexy Alley Scene. You see, when my videographer was shooting scenes for the book trailer for City of Fallen Angels, well, she shot a scene deemed "too hot for TV" by my publisher. So the footage was cut. What to do with it? Vania, ever resourceful, made a little mini-movie out of it, added some effects, and voila, the DSAS.



Now nothing happens in the DSAS that would be inappropriate in a PG-13 movie. It's just . . . a bit passionate. But to make sure you really want to see it we decided to create a little treasure hunt across the blogosphere, featuring some of today's top YA writers and their unwavering commitment to "makey-outy scenes." You start here. Each blog leads you to the next blog, which will give you a letter. At the end, you'll have all the letters and can unscramble them into the password that will allow you to watch the video. The password is Mortal Instruments-related, keep that in mind when figuring it out.

So starting here, the letter is: D

Your next blog is Holly Black's, author of Red Glove. Go!

message 15: by Casey (new)

Casey That girl looked pissed! Haha


message 16: by crystal (new)

crystal Wow that was amazing so fun :-)


message 17: by Margaret (new)

Margaret Javier Once I figured the password out,I was like "OH" and then I felt dumb. L.O.L I'm guessing the girl was Isabelle...maybe(?) but then why would she be watching them that's kinda creepy.


message 18: by Emily (new)

Emily Haha that was so much fun! Usually I suck at unscrambling words/codes but I was so glad when I figured it out. And that vid was awesome, tats never looked so good to me! Now I'm curious to find out who the couple is! Thanks for the hunt!


message 19: by Nanea (new)

Nanea Figured it out! Spent like 10 minutes staring at it, got frustrated, then was like oh! wow, stupid girl! Hehe can't wait to watch it!!


message 20: by Angel Charms (new)

Angel Charms Totally agree with all the comments above. HOT...boy was it HOT. Thanks about the tip about wiki Jamie...I would have spent God knows how long on solving it. And you are right Casey the girl does look pissed or like she is crying...couldn't tell which. My imagination does better justice to Jace though :)


message 21: by Jeanine (new)

Jeanine I'm freaking out after watching that video. I hope that suspicions about Clary cheating on Jace with another Shadowhunter hunk is only paranoia... I can't wait until April 5th!!!!


message 22: by Amanda (new)

Amanda Wow...that was hot! Can't wait to see what's going on! Thanks for that:)


message 23: by Tamie (new)

Tamie omg totally awsome! great smut if you ask me! lol..... thanks for the great book titles that the hunt had me discover!


message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

i can't figure it out lol!


message 25: by Sadiya (new)

Sadiya Gurhan Who was that girl? was it Clary?


message 26: by Buffy (new)

Buffy I'm wondering if the girl at the end is Aline Penhallow (Sebastian's "cousin"). She's that...*insert not so nice adjective here* who told Clary that Jace would no longer be interested in her now that what they have is not "forbidden".


message 27: by Tiffiany_45 (new)

Tiffiany_45 SCAVENGER HUNT IS ON!!!


message 28: by Cassandra (new)

Cassandra That was fun..took me a little bit to figure out what it was..then I felt stupid when I figured it out because it took me so long! Hot video though makes me want the book that much more!!


message 29: by Jeanine (new)

Jeanine I think the girl watching the hot and heavy couple is Isabelle. I think she has just caught Clary cheating on Jase. After all, whats a good story without heartbreak?? I seriously cannot wait to read this darn book!!!


message 30: by Raeleen (new)

Raeleen Lemay i haven't read the mortal instruments in awhile... i can't figure it out! D:


message 31: by Raeleen (new)

Raeleen Lemay ^nevermind i just got it like 2 seconds after i posted that


message 32: by Sanna (new)

Sanna Holm OMG! Is it Simon making out with Isabelle and then Maia suddenly is there? x'D
WANT THE FREAKING BOOK NOW! <3


message 33: by Sanna (new)

Sanna Holm Opps! Watch it aigan. The boy has runes.. is it Sebastian? Or Alec?
YEAH GIVE MED THE BOOK!


message 34: by Michelle. (new)

Michelle. D. The scene was hot!
I love the names that the other authors put like "Hello Smut Seekers" and "Nothing Smutty to see here"
LOL


message 35: by Emily (last edited Mar 23, 2011 10:34AM) (new)

Emily After three hours I figured out the code! I feel so stupid for not knowing it right away!

The video was HOT. And I agree with MMDee, those names were funny!

Wait, you mean the guy wasn't Jace?


message 37: by Rachel (new)

Rachel Liked the vid! Thanks for the fun hunt!


message 38: by Claire (new)

Claire !!!!! I felt sooo stupid not knowing this!!! I forgot about the "unscramble the letters" part and was so confused!! thanks for the info to look on Wiki! it really helped! Though i can't believe I couldn't figure it out on my own!!


message 39: by Emily (new)

Emily i can't find the post on holly blacks blog to find the letter!!

I don't think so... I just have a feeling that it's not. If you watch Clary, she is upset, like... maybe guilty or something. I guess we wont know until April 5th... I'm dying to find out.


message 41: by Jay (new)

Jay I saw the video. I started laughing when I knew the secret code but it was a fun scanvanger hunt.

message 44: by Belinda (new)

Belinda Flavall O.M.G. I literally feel scorched! Lol So can't wait for the book! :D


message 45: by Shea (new)

Shea That was a pretty epic hunt. It's too bad all sites with "sex" in their URL are blocked from my PC. Imagine my disappoint when I got hit with the "Sorry, access denied, perv" page. Haha, but the hunt was still all sorts of epic fun.


message 46: by Azrael (new)

Azrael so I watch the video and I think that it was pretty hot, also i discovered some books that i will be raeding this summer.:)
