This is simply an amazing story. While many other fandoms have an abundance of people who simply "get" the characters, the Mortal Instruments series seems to be beyond the understanding of the vast majority of writers. You, however, are a brilliant exception. It didn't matter that the story was short: you used just as many words as you needed to, and no more, to bring the Lightwood teenagers to life in true Cassandra-Clare style.

Isabelle is SPOT ON in your characterisation, an odd mixture of fire, tenderness and spunk that most authors really find difficult to master. Alec is equally as well done, much quieter than his sister, but just the right mixture of concern and brotherly care. I love the way you had Jace interrupt them, a throwback to his cockiness in an oddly vulnerable fashion that perfectly suits what his mindset was like at the time in the book. I have to say, my favourite is definitely Isabelle in this one: you truly portray her as if she was real, as real as she was in Cassandra's books. I love it!

As one reviewer said, this one shot could fit absolutely seamlessly into the City of Glass. If I saw it in my copy of the novel, I wouldn't even be able to tell the difference, it's that perfect.

Well done, and keep writing! I'm looking forward to more of your stories. :D

Oh, how I absolutely adore the Lightwood siblings. (Jace included, naturally.)

Especially when they're in-character. :D I haven't tried yet, but I can't imagine it's easy to pull off. So, good job, you! -throws confetti-

Thank you for sharing! :)

I would like to thank you for being one of the few Mortal Instruments writers that actually make their characters in-character. I was so happy when I found your three one-shots on here, that I almost laughed.

So many writers make Jace this bipolar mess, that I've started giving up. The fact that you have gotten Jace, Alec AND Isabelle down in this one, makes me have hope for this section again. Thank you!

Once again, flawless style, these stories flow so well it makes it easy to put yourself in the world :) (btw I love your line where it says' guided, well, pushed really, but her intentions are good so...' XD Thanks for another great story!

I really like this :) you wrote it really well, and everything makes sense...I like how you wrote about something that was not written in the story but might have happened, and the characters are very in character, lol. sorry for rambling, but you are good at writing!

Wow -

Your story is really nice! I especially liked the part you also posted as a summary - Izzy trying to torture Jace into eating her food I think I have a quite vivid imagination, and it just ran wild when reading those lines...

The reason why I like this story is that it isnt - even if you said it was unusual for you - absolutely Clary&Jace- centered. Well, obviously the latter is the main character (or the main problem?) but there are enough fan fictions about them both. I really like the Lightwood siblings and your story demonstrates how much they care for Jace. The fact Jaces thoughts are unknown to the reader add to the story, too, because one has to guess what hes thinking.

Nicely done!
