So, I finished Clockwork Princess, and ugh, I cried soooooo much. But I also laughed a lot, and it was amazing and brilliant and more that I could have ever hoped for. It was perfect, and the ending the perfect blend bitter and sweet ... I just loved it.
And the secondary characters are so well-defined and complex as well! I loved them all.
Also, I'd like to say that even if I cried like a baby in some of the scenes between Tessa and one of the boys, It was Will and Jem's interactions that had me sobbing so hard my sister came to my room to check if everything was alright. Their relationship is just so heartbreakingly beautiful and sincere. But then again, so are Tessa's relationships with both of them. Actually, the amounts of selfless love that the three of them display for each other is amazing, and it really breaks my heart to see how much they all suffer whenever one of them is in any kind of pain.
It's just that... ugh, my babies. I love them so much.
