Clace an ‘All-Time Favorite YA Couple’

Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower as Clary and Jace has compiled a list of their ’10 All-Time Favorite YA Couples and ‘Clace’ is their #7.

They described all the couples as “made-for-each-other teen duos who made us swoon” and here is what was said about Clary and Jace:

Jace and Clary, The Mortal Instruments

First Encounter: Clary stumbles upon Jace at NYC nightclub Pandemonium while he and his fellow Shadowhunters attack a demon. Clary’s introduction to the Shadowhunting world is only a peek at Jace’s enigmatic character.
Defining Moment: The two have a classic will-they/won’t-they relationship, each finding the other slightly annoying in the beginning, but they finally share a swoon-worthy kiss in the Institute’s Greenhouse in the first book, City of Bones.
Relationship Challenges: At the end of City of Bones, Clary and Jace discover they share the same parents, Valentine Morgenstern. (Yeah, we were grossed out too.) Incest ranks pretty high on the list of relationship complications, and they have to make the switch from couple to siblings. Additionally, Clary’s best friend, Simon, has feelings for her completing yet another quintessential YA love-triangle.
Why They Work: Eventually Clary and Jace learn they are not, in fact, related. Whew! With that barrier out of the way, they can continue on with their passionate, near-obsession with each other. Things are never easy for them (see: City of Fallen Angels where Jace is controlled by the demon Lilith and dreams of killing Clary) but nothing is ever easy for the Shadowhunters. There’s still one book left in the series, but we’re pretty confident that they’ll make it all work in the end.

So much recognition for our TMI couples–you can read about Malec here.

  1. Good for Clase, though im a hardcore Team Malec all the way, but glad that a lot of media spotlights is on for our dear TMI couples nowdays. Hope the next on the list will be Simon and Izzy. ^^

    clace is one of my fave ficitional couples!

  3. I do love them. My only issues with this snippet is that it gives too much away at once. We fans, have waited for all 5 of the books to come out, but it`s too much info in a few paragraphs for new readers or people interested in the series.

    Clace is my favourite couple from all the book series I’ve read.
    The fact is that they don’t want each other, they need each other. They have big passion and I hope for something good in the end of City of Heavenly Fire for the Clace couple. I want to read about getting married!!!
