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

cassandraclare:

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.)

Name one hero who was h a p p y.

i haven’t read TM, but Richard is pretty much a self insert narrator, he’s easy to identify with (i typically avoid 1st person pov like the plague) but he is notoriously unreliable.
magpie-x replied to your post:the-smudgy-one replied to your post:wow it seems…
For me, TSH is miles better than the Magicians. I wouldn’t say he’s bitter, not like Quentin. Read it ages ago and am rereading now, but I remember I was ok with him, whereas i srsly disliked Quentin
nah, richard papen is not bitter, he’s more like a romantic and quite unreliable narrator

ok, thanks. Compiling: I don´t mind unreliability in a narrator (I actually really like it) so that´s not a problem.  I´m not huge on 1st person pov either, especially if it´s written in present tense, that´s a no no for me. But if it´s well handled I can deal with it. And…romantic..I like that. 

My problem with The Magicians was the tone of the narration. Not really what the protagonist did or thought or whatever, just that he had a very bitter way of thinking. Idk how to explain it (it´s a pet peeve of mine).

YESSS READ ITTTT (also, similar to the narrator in The Magicians how? I’ve read both so i might be able to answer if you’re more specific)

what I meant is that if he is a bitter…basically…

wow it seems I´ll have to read The secret history…

“"Be careful," he said.
“I will.”
There was more to say, but for once we did not say it. There would be other times for speaking, tonight and tomorrow and all the days after that. He let go of my hand.”

After the Bridge Part Four

After the Bridge alternates POV between Jem and Tessa. It will be posted in installments. This is Part Two. It is not the whole story. There are more parts. 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.)

[Also just a personal note: since starting to post this, I’ve been bombarded with requests to write Clace, Malec, Sizzy, Wessa, Jemma, Jordelia, ships that don’t even have names, etc short stories. I usually turn down requests to write short stories for published anthologies because I don’t have time — I really don’t have time to write a ton of short-story-length outtakes. I’m writing this as it grew out of a discussion with Holly Black and Kelly Link about romance shapes and sat on my head and demanded to be written. When that happens again, I will happily post what I write because I like to share free content. But I do need to focus on TLH and TDA right now, and nothing else is calling to be written. In other words, and I hope I am saying this the nicest possible way, I can’t take requests. We will all just have to see if inspiration strikes and hope it isn’t Mortmain/Benedict “The Worm” Lightwood.]

Meanwhile, definitely an R rating below. I admit I don’t really understand the rating system. SEXY TIMES. These characters are consenting and 135 years old, but I would probably keep the story away from kiddies.
