Not for Humans


This is a short piece Holly and Cassandra wrote for John Green’s Project for Awesome a few years ago. Cassandra recently mentioned it and enough people asked to see it that she thought they ought to put it up!

It’s a crossover between Holly Black’s Modern Faerie Tale series and Shadowhunter Chronicles. Kaye, Roiben, Corny and Luis are all from Holly’s books. You may well know the others. :) This is set before the beginning of City of Bones. Remember when Jace talked about eating faerie food and running naked down Fifth Avenue…?
