parabatai past and present + watercolor plants
Entreat me not to leave thee, Or return from following after thee— For whither thou goest, I will go, And where thou lodgest, I will lodge. Thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God. Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried. The Angel do so to me, and more also, If aught but death part thee and me.

City of Bones, page 62:
Jace was seated at the grand piano…She must have made some noise because he twisted around on the stool, blinking in the shadows. “Alec?” he said. “Is that you?”
Clockwork Angel, page 100:
A boy with a violin propped against his shoulder. His cheek rested against the instrument, and the bow sawed back and forth over the strings, wringing notes out of it, notes as fine and perfect as anything Tessa had ever heard. His eyes were closed. "Will?" he said, without opening his eyes or ceasing to play. "Will, is that you?"
Queen of Air and Darkness, page 19:
A door opened at the top of the steps, and light spilled onto the dark landing. "Julian?" Emma called. "Julian, is that you?"

Will: if there is a life after this one let me meet you in it, James Carstairs.
*Parabatais Today*
Alec: You never listen to me parababitch.
Jace: Because you never understand anything, parabaidiot.
Alec: *repeatedly hitting Jace's head* WHY ARE YOU LIKE THIS?

Alec: Love is a weakness, an evolutionary mistake.
Jace: You're literally making a Valentine's card for Magnus right now.
Alec, pointing glue gun at Jace: You're on thin fucking ice.

Cordelia and Lucie
I reworked my last Cordelia and made it a little more portrait-y, and then did Lucie yesterday.

Q&A parabatai
mmherondale said: Hey Cassie! I was wondering if we will see Will reacting to Lucie and Cordelia deciding to be parabatai. Since he had such a strong bond with Jem, I can't stop imagining him being extremely happy with his own daughter being parabatai of a Carstairs. Thanks for taking the time to answer us, you are amazing. Love from Denmark!
Hi Denmark!
Will's delight in Lucie and Cordelia as parabatai is ongoing. Lucie is always pushing for Cordelia to become her parabatai ASAP, to visit, to move to London, and Will is always like “Yes Lucie yes” as the Clave is like “no Lucie no.” The Clave's attitude toward women being parabatai is unsurprisingly sexist—it's not forbidden, but their thinking is "Oh ladies, do they really know their own minds? Warrior brothers, great, gentlemen showing their lady parabatai the best way to Nephilim, great, but oh ladies, so emotional, are you two sure you want to be parabatai, are you sure?”
 A pair of female parabatai are a rare thing in 1903. Moreover, these are not usual ladies. Lucie, due to her demonic heritage, is always a little under suspicion--though not so much as James, as to all appearances she is is unremarkable, whereas James's eyes are proof nobody can turn away from. And Cordelia is under a cloud that is even more of a problem. Will is so happy for Lucie when Cordelia finally arrives. Lucie relies implicitly on her father to support her and the parabatai she wants: against the Clave, against the Angel if necessary.
“What if Cordelia has changed her mind, and says she will not have a minx like you?”
“She would never!” Lucie was outraged.
“No,” Will agreed. “She would not. As far as I am concerned, you shall perform the ceremony as soon as you please. All I want is for you and Cordelia to live a long and happy life, and never be parted.”
