If you remember from Lady Midnight, Kit Rook actually turned out to be Kit Herondale, the Lost Herondale. And Tiberius Blackthron is one of the 15-year-old twins of the Los Angeles Institute. Apparently, Kit and Ty are going to be pretty close for the rest of The Dark Artifices. Cassandra Clare comments, “Kit and Ty are planned to have a really significant relationship. That is literally all I can say. I genuinely feel anything else is a spoiler.” She posted this snippet with her comment on the pair:
“Oh. Right.” Kit glanced down at his split knuckles. “I hurt my hand at the Shadow Market.”
“How?” Ty asked, leaning against the edge of the counter.
“I punched a board,” Kit said. “I was angry.”
Ty’s eyebrows went up. He had interesting eyebrows, slightly pointed at the tops, like inverted V’s, and very black. “Did it make you feel better?”
“No,” Kit admitted. He felt ever so slightly judged.
Ty tilted his head to the side. “I can fix it,” he said, taking one of the Shadowhunters’ magic pencils out of his jeans pocket. Steles, they were called. He held out his hand.
Kit supposed he could have refused to accept the offer, the way he had when Julian had suggesting healing him in the car. But he didn’t. He held his forearm out trustingly, wrist turned upward so the blue veins were exposed to the boy who’d held a knife to his throat not that long ago.
Now, whether this is going to be an OTP or a BrOTP, fans are not sure, although it seems most are leaning towards the former, shipping them with the name Kitty. Cassandra Clare and Cassandra Jean have now released more Kitty snippets and images to tease fans.
“Okay,” Kit said. “But I would just say that it isn’t always about people knowing what’s best for you, or thinking they do. Sometimes they would just miss you.”
“Livvy would miss me —”
“Your whole family would miss you,” said Kit, “and I would miss you.”
All we can do is wait to see just how close these boys are going to get.
