okay so imagine the moment that jace returns. imagine alec and izzy immediately pulling him into the tightest hug while jace cries quietly in their arms. imagine izzy clutching jace’s hand so tight while they walk up to his room. imagine alec pulling out jace’s favourite blanket from under his bed, the one they used to use to build forts when they were little. imagine the three of them sitting together, all cuddled up, the blanket wrapped around their shoulders, just feeling relieved to be back together again. imagine jace’s hands trembling when he tells them what happened and izzy and alec holding him even tighter in silent reassurance. a reminder that they’re there, they’ll always be there, that they’ll never let jace be on his own again. imagine max being home from idris and rushing into the room because jace is finally home. imagine jace bursting into tears when max climbs onto his lap to hold jace’s face between his small hands, telling him he’s never allowed to go anywhere again. imagine jace feeling like he can breathe for the first time since he left because he’s finally home and he’s finally surrounded by his real family, the only family he’s ever known, the only family he’s ever needed. just imagine the lightwood siblings being even closer than before, because now they’re even more determined that nothing and no one can tear them away from each other again.
