We could—” he started, then stopped, swallowed, and started again. “We could become parabatai.”
He said it shyly, half-turning his face away from her, so that the shadows partially hid his expression.
“Then they couldn’t separate us,” he added. “Not ever.”
Emma felt her heart turn over. “Jules, being parabatai is a big deal,” she said. “It’s—it’s forever.”
He looked at her, his face open and guileless. There was no trickery in Jules, no darkness. “Aren’t we forever?” he asked.

“Come back.”

“Come back.” A voice. It seemed distant. So far away. 
“Don’t leave.” Who’s voice is that? It sounds so familiar. It sounds like…home. Family. Brother. 


Livia had been dead for sometime now. Due to Dru’s influence, Livvy had always imagined death to be like a horror movie. Mind-numbing. Endless torture.

She never expected it to be so…peaceful. Almost like a dream. Her entire life played in her mind over and over again. 

She could see a five year old Ty showing her a ladybug perched on the tip of his finger. She thought it was gross, while he thought it was fascinating. She remembered laughing hard when Ty fell back because of how suddenly the ladybug flew away. 

She remembered being outside the institute, kissing Kit. How it never felt…right. 
She remembered the nights Ty spent outside Kit’s room, and how she always had to put a blanket on him, when she found him curled up, snoring softly. 

She remembered…Idris. Zara Deadborn screaming on top of her lungs at Annabelle. She had been so scared. She remembered Annabelle driving the Mortal Sword into Robert Lightwood, killing him instantly. 

She remembered the jagged sword stabbing her as well. It hurt at first, but then, there was just numbness. The world became quiet, and all she could see was Julian cradling her in his arms, his tears staining her face. 

“Please, say something.” That voice. Ty. Again. 
She opened her eyes slowly, hearing a string of gasps at the same instant. 
“Ty?” she whispered.

She found herself in a tight hug, and curly hair tickling her ear. 
“You’re back.” Ty said. “You’re back.” 

I was scrolling through CC Pinterest when I found this two pins labeled Thule and both of them have this misterious guy dressed all in black so I thought: what if this guy is the most prince? What if this guy is the Unseelie King’s first son????? What IF. Like we’ve never met this Thule guy before so maybe, is he? Like could he? I’m literally having a theory breakdown. But GUYS. What if??

Kit x Ty mini comic!! (dialogue written by @cassandraclare )
