“So have you heard from Alec and Magnus lately?” she asked. “Are they having a good time?”

“Sounds like it.” Jace took his phone out of his pocket and handed it to her. “Alec keeps sending me annoying photos. Lots of captions like Wish you were here, except not really.”

“Well, you can’t blame him. It’s supposed to be a romantic vacation.” She flipped through the photos on Jace’s phone and giggled. Alec and Magnus standing in front of the Eiffel Tower, Alec wearing jeans as usual and Magnus wearing a striped fisherman’s sweater, leather pants, and an insane beret. In the Boboli Gardens, Alec was still wearing jeans, and Magnus was wearing an enormous Venetian cloak and a gondolier’s hat. He looked like the Phantom of the Opera. In front of the Prado he was wearing a sparkling matador jacket and platform boots, while Alec appeared to be calmly feeding a pigeon in the background.

“I’m taking that away from you before you get to the India part,” said Jace, retrieving his phone. “Magnus in a sari. Some things you don’t ever forget.”

Vacationing together

Alec away with Magnus.

“So have you heard from Alec and Magnus lately?” she asked. “Are they having a good time?”

 “Sounds like it.” Jace took his phone out of his pocket and handed it to her. 

“Alec keeps sending me annoying photos. Lots of captions like Wish you were here, except not really.” 

“Well, you can’t blame him. It’s supposed to be a romantic vacation.” She qipped through the photos on Jace’s phone and giggled.

Back from vaca - Alec is happier and calmer

He seemed as if he wasn’t happy to be there at all. Beyond that, Simon thought, he looked much the same as he always had—same black hair, same steady blue eyes—although there was something more relaxed about him than there had been before, as if he had grown into himself somehow.

the jealousy begins 

“Camille?” Alec looked at Magnus with his eyebrows raised. “You know her, then? Or —she knows you?”

Being clear

“You could give me the past,” he said a little sadly. “But Alec is my future.”

Cute bickering

“Good organization,” said Magnus. “I knew the man who founded it, back in the 1800s. Woolsey Scott. Respectable old werewolf family.

” Alec made an ugly sound in the back of his throat. “Did you sleep with him, too?” 

Magnus’s cat eyes widened. “Alexander!”

Immortality 

Alec - “If you could have me with you forever, wouldn’t you want to?” 

“Of course I would!” Magnus, realizing he was almost shouting, lowered his voice with an effort. “But you don’t understand. You don’t get something for nothing. The price for living forever—”

Care

Magnus stood up. 

“But,” he added, pausing by Alec’s chair and leaning in close to him, “you are not trivial.” 

Alec flushed. “If you say so,” he said.

Already knows what boyfie would say

He wondered what Magnus would say, but to tell the truth, he already knew. Alec had fought creatures like this before, the cult servants of demons. Almost all that was human about them had been consumed by the demon for energy, leaving nothing but a murderous yearning to kill and a human body dying slowly in agony. They were beyond help: incurable, unɹxable. He heard Magnus’s voice as if the warlock stood beside him. Killing them is the most merciful thing you can do.

Alec’s change

“You’re all he ever wants,” said Alec in a surprisingly gentle tone, and he sat back on his heels, pushing his long dark hair out of his eyes. There was something different about him these days, Clary thought, a surety about himself he hadn’t had when she had ɹrst met him, something that allowed him to be generous with others as he had never been generous with himself before.

When Alec comes back

Simon got to his feet and edged away, feeling uncomfortable—and was nearly knocked down by Magnus, racing across the room to get to Alec. He didn’t seem to see Simon at all. 

Alec looked up just as Magnus reached him, caught him, and pulled him close. His ɹngers traced over Alec’s face as if checking for bruises or damage; under his breath, he was muttering, “How could you—go oʃ like this and not even tell me—I could have helped you—”

The love

“Alexander,” said Magnus. 

“There isn’t going to be a next time.” He leaned his forehead against Alec’s, gold-green eyes staring into blue. Alec’s heartbeat sped up.

PDA

He put his hands gently to either side of Alec’s face. “Which is not at all.” “So what do we do?” Alec whispered. Magnus shrugged, and smiled suddenly; with his messy black hair and the gleam in his gold-green eyes, he looked like a mischievous teenager. “What everyone does,” he replied. “Like you said. Hope.” Alec and Magnus had begun kissing in the corner of the room
