At 11.28 pm on Saturday (I’m using the English time because Lizzie - who opened the chat - is from England) Cassie joined fans in a tinychat and chatted with us for almost an hour.
I copied the chat - with typos - and wrote down the questions and Cassie’s answers.
If you copy this please give me credit because it took me quite a long time to put this together. Thank you.

[12:40 AM] dannie_kalifornia: I WANT JACE AND SIMON TO CONTINUE TO BE A BROTP
[12:41 AM] cassieclare: Jace and Simon do continue to be bros. But Jace has to be there for Alec in his sorrow.
[12:41 AM] catreadsbooks: Cassie, a quick question: where’s Alec’s parabatai rune, arm or collarbone? Thx
[12:41 AM] cassieclare: Cat, I would have to check. I think it’s arm.
[12:42 AM] alicanteandidristhenews: will fletcher the duck appear in clockwork princess…? :D

[12:50 AM] newuser2118: plot twist: jem and will become lovers
[12:50 AM] cassieclare: I don’t think Jem and Will hooking up would be much of a twist.
