we need more mr darcy's in this world!

The Signs as Magnus Bane quotes
  • Taurus: "There's no need to clarify my finger snap," said Magnus. "The implication was clear in the snap itself."
  • Gemini: "You can have the joy of reading the stories of incredible happenings, or you can be part of the story."
  • Cancer: Magnus raised his head and looked up and over at Alec; it was a look that made Clary flush and glance away. There was so much love in it, mixed with exasperation and pride and despair. It was an unguarded look, and it felt wrong to see it.
  • Leo: "Why send a message when you can send something truly magnificent?"
  • Virgo: Run off, little Shadowhunter, and learn to murder things. And be nice to Downworlders.
  • Libra: "Hello, companion," said Magnus. The monkey made a terrible sound, half snarl and half hiss. "I begin to rather doubt the beauty of our friendship," said Magnus.
  • Scorpio: "Well, well. Kill the fatted calf and all that. The prodigals have returned."
  • Sagittarius: Magnus had been alive hundreds of years himself, and yet the simplest things could turn a day into a jewel, and a succession of days into a glittering chain that went on and on. Here was the simplest thing: a pretty girl liked him, and the day shone.
  • Capricorn: "We all change the world, with every day of living in it."
  • Aquarius: Finally," Magnus said, grabbing a ten-dollar bill from a table near the door, and he buzzed the delivery man in. "I need some beef and broccoli before I face any more Mr. Darcy. It's a truth universally acknowledged that if you watch too much television on an empty stomach, your head falls off."
  • "If your head fell off," Tessa said, "the hairdressing industry would go into an economic meltdown."
  • Pisces: Maybe this time was different—maybe this love was different. It felt so different; surely that had to mean something. Maybe the year to come would be a good year for both of them. Maybe this time things would work out the way Magnus wanted them to.
  • Maybe Alexander Lightwood would not break his heart.
