THE WINNER OF MATCH #24 IS WILL!
The Dukes have spoken and they are demanding action from YOU! Kaidan Rowe, son of Pharzuph, Duke of Lust, is up for 2013's Debut boy in the YA Crush Tourney and they are demanding that he win! You wouldn't want to upset Lucifer's head demons now... would you? Kaidan's up against some stiff competition so Pharzuph and the other Dukes have recruited me, Kayleigh from K-Books along with the #KaidanStreetTeam to tell you why he deserves to be crowned 2013's champion!
Kaidan Rowe is the hottest of the HOTT!
Kai is the son of the head demon of Lust... of course he is HOTT! What girl can resist the super gorgeous, confident, lustful Kaidan with his messy brown hair, blue eyes and ENGLISH ACCENT! Oh yes... you heard me... English Accent! Rather that tell you all about Kai... Let's see what Anna Whitt has to say... "Good gracious, he was sexy - a word that had not existed in my personal vocabulary until that moment. This guy was sexy like it was his job or something." He is TT worthy..."He was smokin' hot. As in H-O-T-T hott. I'd never understood until that moment why girls insisted on adding the extra T. This guy was extra T worthy." You can get lost in his swoon-worthy eyes... "Gosh, his eyes were gorgeous - the color of tropical honeymoon waters ringed in dark sapphire and enclosed by thick lashes" He even makes fruit sexy! "That's a shame," he picked up a green pear from his plate and bit into it, licking juice that dripped down him thumb. My cheeks warmed as I set down my glass. "Okay now you're just being crude." I said. He grinned with lazy satisfaction. Now don't tell Pharzuph and the other Dukes I said this but... *Looks around and moves closer*
Deep down Kaidan is really a sweetheart and uber Swoony!
Yes Kaidan may be the epitome of snarky sexiness but deep down he is a sweetheart and he always puts the ones he loves before himself. In his own words... "Anna... the night of the summit, when you were saved, it was the only time in my life I've ever thanked God for anything."*SWOOOOONNNNN* NO matter what, he is swoon worthy and wants to be better... "Because all I could think about was you, Anna, and how good you are, and what you'd think of me. You put thoughts into my head that a Neph should never have." He makes every girl want freckles... "What do you want from me Kai?" "For starters?" His voice lowered to sexy, dangerous depths. "I want to introduce myself to every freckle on your body."
DID I MENTION HE WAS THE SEXIEST NEPH AROUND?
His bedroom eyes... "Seriously" I whispered, unable to look away. "You're doing the bedroom-eyes thing again." He sleeps in the buff... "Dear God!" I screamed and buried my face in my pillow. "What?" I heard him ask. "Did you see a roach?" "Why are you naked?!" I did not dare to life my red face. "Huh. Is that all?" He asked. "I always sleep in the buff. I don't know how you can stand all that clothing."
HE IS A KICK-ASS DRUMMER
Kaidan is the drummer in band Lavicious... "There was an intensity in the way he played, like he was unleashing his passion into the music and nothing else mattered. He was feeling it, lost in it, and he was good. A light sheen of sweat shone on his arms and face, dampening and darkening his hair at the temples." "Now, with the drummers' absence of aura, I was able to watch the muscles in his biceps and forearms flex as he slammed the drumsticks down in a whirlwind of precise movement. The beat was intoxicating, bumping each nerve ending inside of me. His whole body moved fluidly, jumping with the force of the beat, his face focused and sure."
He's even got girls writing poems and limericks about him! Courtesy of @KatieOlley

TMI Movie News: We are a fansite for all things Cassie Clare. We are obscenely passionate about The Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices, especially our boys Jace and Will Herondale! We keep everyone up to date on the important fandom related news including books, movies, hawt characters and just plain fan-crushing. Please check us out on our site MortalInstrumentsMovies.com , Twitter: TMI_MovieNews, and Tumblr: CityofBonesMovie! William Herondale, what can you say about Will? He is snark and wit to all, yet sweet to those who've captured his devotion. Guarded to protect not only mortals but his own heart, yet more vulnerable than most. He loves reading and poetry, but can also wield a seraph blade with astonishing skill. Will is strength and control, but he is also beauty and reckless abandon. To know him and not love him seems impossible. His kindness is found by the true observer. Will is deep violet blue eyes, and ink black hair that often falls in his eyes. Will has thick lashes, and elegant features; he is well built with broad shoulders and strong muscles. “His eyes were steady and blue they were everything Will was; true and tender, sharp and witty, loving and kind.” Behind his walls Will is just someone who wants to be loved, to be part of a family and let those people care for him. He is a romantic; his love is fierce and unyielding. He will do anything and everything for those he loves no matter the cost to himself. “He bent to put his cheek against hers. His breath against her ear made her shudder with each deliberately spoken word. "I have wanted to do this," he said, "every moment of every hour of every day that I have been with you since the day I met you.”
Will Herondale is somewhat of a kicked puppy; in desperate need of help but just wants love and he'll protect you. He has had a tragic childhood; he has punished himself by pushing away anyone who could possibly love him. He is self sacrificing almost to the point of masochism. His control and restraint for the betterment of others is unparalleled, placing him leagues beyond what most heroes are capable.
Will would do anything for Jem his parabatai; even give up his own happiness and dreams for Jem. Nearly selling his soul to help make Jem’s life a little easier, providing not only tangible palliatives but also those of friendship and loyalty. “Our souls are knit. We are one person, James.”
A true literature hero must win our hearts thru writ, and no one does it better than Will. He loves books as much as we do. The boy can whip out a quote from any number of classics to suit the moment or express his feelings - oh my.
“It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, and I with them.” I will be honest with you, Will. We flipping LOVE you more than words could express! If his wisecracks don't enamor you, watch out for his naked vulnerability, expressed to only one.
Will has mastered the art of killing Demons, while he does not have any supernatural abilities he knows how to fight his way out of the whole schmear. And while your donning 17th century grace, that's a tough act to beat. Chivalrous protection? Yes, please! Ah...but be warned, never will he oppress your dignity or honor. Once earned, you will maintain his loyalty and protection, unthreatened by disrespect or belittlement. His valiance is that of humility and earnestness to earn love, not for intimidation or domination. Will is also hilarious; his brand of sarcasm and dark wit will leave you rolling...or blushing. Take for instance his opinion on ducks. “Remember when you tried to convince me to feed a poultry pie to the mallards in the park to see if you could breed a race of cannibal ducks?"
"They ate it too, Bloodthirsty little beasts. Never trust a duck.”
And there's always the less innocent remarks - "Do you think you can be trusted in Downworld? The gaming hells, the dens of magical vice, the women of loose morals..." Will smiled the way Lucifer might have smiled, moments before he fell from heaven. "Would tomorrow be too early to start looking, do you think? " Have you ever noticed how "Will" is always the cornerstone of all great phrases, like Will you marry me or Where there's a Will there's a way? Finally, and perhaps one of the headiest arguments, because of Will we got Jace Wayland-Morgenstern-Lightwood-Herondale, another flawless character who you can’t help but fall in love with! You simply can't help falling deeply, madly and heinously fully in love with William Herondale - “What he needs now is to love and have that love returned.”
