tmisource:

It’s that time of year again. YA Sisterhood is holding its second annual YA Crush Tourneyand right now they’re taking nominations.

We all remember that Jace was crowned the YA Crush Tourney Champion last year so sadly he’s not eligible for this year’s tournament, but there are plenty of other swoon-worthy men in Cassandra Clare’s Shadowhunter Chronicles to nominate.

Here are some of the many guys you can nominate:

  • Will Herondale (The Infernal Devices)
  • Jem Carstairs (The Infernal Devices)
  • Simon Lewis (The Mortal Instruments)
  • Alec Lightwood (The Mortal Instruments)
  • Magnus Bane (The Mortal Instruments)
  • + many more

So head over to YA SISTERHOOD and nominate the guys of the Shadowhunter Chronicles. You can nominate up to 10 guys. Nominations close on June 19th.

If Jace is to pass the YA Crush Tourney crown off to someone it best be another member of Clare’s world.

Be sure to use #YACrushTourney hashtag on Twitter.

If you guys haven’t checked out the YA Sisterhood, you definitely need to! They have loads of amazing tourneys all the time!

‘City of Bones’ starts filming in two months!

Are you guys excited? Because we are. Those of you who have been fans for a while will understand why it’s such a big deal that filming is actually starting; it seemed like it was never going to happen. Currently, we only know for sure that Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower will be playing Clary and Jace in the film adaptation of  City of Bones.  But we’ve been told that casting information will be coming any minute now (well duh, filming is starting soon). Apparently, the role of Simon Lewis has been cast, but we haven’t been told who it is yet. The casting director, Stephanie Corsalini, and the producers are now working out his salary and scheduling.

We know that many, many, many actors have gone out for the role of Magnus Bane, so I think that’s who I’m most excited to see get cast at the moment. What about you? Who are you most anxious to see cast?

Remember, that you guys can check back here for the casting news that will be coming very soon here.

Relationship advice for the guy’s part 2

Ok, so I have given my advice to Simon, Jace and Sebastian. Now I’m going to do the other guy characters. It’s time for part 2 where I address some of the others who might need advice!

Alec – Your situation with Magnus being immortal and you being mortal is a bit of a problem. You just need to remember to trust Magnus. You know that he loves you and would doing almost anything for you. Just remember if you are trying to find a way to be with him then there’s a good chance he is too!

Magnus – I like your sparkly style Magnus and your love for Alec is inspiring. However even you have noticed that things between you and Alec aren’t right. It might be hard for you but I believe that if you talk to Alec about your past then he might trust you a little more. I think that since he doesn’t know who you were in the past he’s a little dubious as to who you are in the present.

Luke – I loved your story of the everlasting love for a girl who you did everything for but didn’t know how you felt. Not realising how she felt the same way for many years. Then in the end you found out that you loved each other and soon after became engaged. I just one little tip for you, tell her how you feel a little sooner! A wise person once told you that it’s better to tell them when the moments wrong then never tell them at all. She was right, just remember that for future reference.

That’s all for relationship advice for the guys of The Mortal Instruments. If you want me to do some for the Infernal Devices just comment below and tell me!
