    Bookmark Notes:

    Part 1: "Parabatai are a pair of Nephilim warriors who fight together as lifelong partners [...]. Their bond is not only reflected in their closeness and willingness to lay down their lives for one another, but also in oath—one sworn in front of the Council." - Shadowhunters Wikia
    "The Thebans’ practice of intimacy with lovers, to speak more generally, did not have its origin, as the poets say, in the passion of Laius. Rather the practice grew out of deliberate policies which the lawgivers adopted." - Plutarch, Life of Pelopidas

    Part 2: And if there were only some way that an army should be made up of lovers and their loves [...]; and when fighting at each other's side, although a mere handful, they would overcome the world. - Plato, Symposium

    Part 3: They made a striking pair, light and dark, gold and black, and Clary turned to Isabelle to whisper, “This whole parabatai thing seems oddly… intimate, if you ask me.”

    Part 4: Before they can get Clary's memories back from the memory demon, Jace has to deal with a certain warlock's obvious interest in his parabatai.

    Part 5: Herondale. Jace was a Herondale. Grandson to the Inquisitor, the very woman who’d been making their lives so difficult and who was now staring at Jace as if she’d never seen him before. However, he was also once again in the clutches of Valentine, and for Alec that took precedence over anything else.
