“Every night, no matter what has happened during the day, no matter if I am torn or bloodied or so bone-tired I wish I were dead, I look up at the stars and I give each star a brother’s name or a sister’s face. I will not sleep until I remember every one.
The stars will burn out before I forget.”
The Blackthorns described by Mark in Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy.

My favourite thing about Malec is that everyone (including Alec at first) thinks that Magnus is so in control and unaffected and experienced and he is always in charge and taking care of everything and knows exactly what he is doing at all times, meanwhile Magnus is just like:
Alec: *kisses him*
Magnus: *Forgets how to breath, where he is, which way is up or down, what year is it, what’s his name, somehow they ended up on the floor and he has no idea how*
“There is no pretending,” Jace said with absolute clarity. “I love you, and I will love you until I die and if there’s a life after that, I’ll love you then.”
“I love you, Jace Wayland—Herondale—Lightwood—whatever you want to call yourself. I don’t care. I love you and I will always love you, and pretending it could be any other way is just a waste of time.”
how about instead of fics and headcanons where izzy’s cooking is shit and simon chokes it down we have fics where simon teaches her to cook?? maybe rebecca comes round and helps with family recipes?? and they end up having cooking sessions and izzy ends up really good at it after a while and they have occasional food fight and everyone comes round to their place for family dinners on sundays.
