"Jocelyn's Story" (Children's Books)
1 chapters   —   updated Jun 28, 2010 05:05PM
Description: The short story that tells the story of Jocelyn's early life and marriage to Valentine from her point of view, that I originally gave away last year as a prize at the Bryant Park party. (It's what the chapter in which she tells Clary her backstory in CoG was adapted from, but much longer and more detailed.)

“Have you fallen in love with the wrong person yet?'
Jace said, "Unfortunately, Lady of the Haven, my one true love remains myself."
..."At least," she said, "you don't have to worry about rejection, Jace Wayland."
"Not necessarily. I turn myself down occasionally, just to keep it interesting.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Bones

“One must always be careful of books," said Tessa, "and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

“There is no pretending," Jace said with absolute clarity. "I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there is life after that, I'll love you then.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Glass
