    Summary

    A Post Chain of Thorns Au:
    Suddenly he pulls back, remembering what hasn’t been said. He trips over his tongue trying to get the words out fast enough. “The bracelet, the one Grace gave me—”

    But Cordelia’s attention is elsewhere, staring at a spot just over his shoulder, her face a mask of dread. James turns, and the room explodes in light and wind as a tunnel opens up behind a fair-headed boy, whose back is to James and is about to step through the tunnel and into a forest landscape. The words escape his mouth before he can think, but he already knows:

    “Math? Math, is that you?”

    Matthew turns his head at the last moment, and James sees the sad glint of his green eyes before the tunnel pulls him in and he’s gone.

    Summary

    Alastair’s eyes are bright, burning, and absolutely blinding. “I want you so desperately it makes me shake.” It’s true. Alastair’s hands are quivering. “I wanted you badly enough to put aside my dignity, my honor, all for just one more kiss or one more touch. I asked you to come to Paris with me because I missed you and didn’t want to be alone. I was selfish and thought that maybe I could love you from afar. That what I feel for you wouldn’t be all consuming.”

    A pit opens in Thomas’s stomach. “Wait—”

    “It is,” Alastair’s voice is nothing more than a whisper. “But you’re wrong. Maybe I do deserve you. Maybe I’ve changed. Raziel knows I’ve tried to be better. But what you don’t deserve is the absolute havoc I will wreak on your life. You don’t deserve to have everyone you love torn away because they all hate me.”

    “They won’t—”

    “I won’t let you make that decision,” Alastair murmurs, his hand coming up to cradle Thomas’s cheek. The touch is like fire and ice. “I’m sorry, joon-am. We can never be.”

    Summary

    Alastair collects the bricks for his walls slowly, the layers forming steadily over the years.

    He gets the first bricks when he’s nine, the night he learns the truth about his father. The smell of whiskey burns his nostrils as he shakes his father’s prostrate frame, a fear he’s never known before coiling through his ribs and tightening around his lungs. He screams for his mother, for Risa, for anyone to come help him.

    It takes less than a minute for them to find him. His mother picks him up from under his arms, crosses her arms over his chest and holds him to her as Risa tends to his father.

    Sona whispers in his ear and smoothes down his hair as though expecting him to cry—but he doesn’t. He can feel the tears at the back of his eyes placed there by fear and uncertainty, but he pushes against them now, and the first brick slides into place.

    Summary

    “You’re going to look for him, aren’t you?” It was more of a statement than a question.
    Cordelia sighed and nodded. “I have to.”
    “I know…” he stood up slightly taller, attempting to sound and look confident. “Take me with you.”
    “Absolutely not,” she said, shaking her head.
    “Why not?”
    “Because it is dangerous.”
    “You’re going. And I’m an adult too.”
    “Barley,” she told him, walking over and placing one hand on his shoulder, the other on his cheek. “Owen, listen to me, I’ll come back, and I’ll bring James with me, and the rest of the thieves, I promise. But if you were to go, I would be too distracted trying to protect you, and you must acknowledge I have been a shadowhunter far longer than you. I need you here, looking after your cousins.” She gripped his shoulder a little tighter. “Do you understand?”
    He was quiet for too long, she started to think he would argue, but instead he nodded. “Please send me letters,” he whispered.
    She smiled and kissed her son's forehead. “I will.”

    Summary

    *waves* Hi guys! So, basically I saw this dude who looked like Alastair and I started thinking. . . and well, one thought led to another and now I'm deep in a Thomastair Modern Au. Most of it is just gonna be fluff because I'm done with either of them hurting but however it will get angsty at some point. Anyway, it won't be too long (probably 14 or so chapters) but I'm just really excited to write and share this and make you all laugh and smile! <333

    Summary

    When they were kids, Lucie used to tell James that his inability to say no to pretty girls was going to kill him.

    It was a ridiculous thought, of course; the way James used to let Grace Blackthorn walk all over him when they were seventeen didn’t have anything to do with the fact she was pretty, and everything to do with the fact James had been hopelessly and desperately in love with her.

    However, at twenty-two years old, as he’s about to walk into Grace’s wedding to someone else, with Matthew hanging from his arm, James thinks that Lucie might have been right. Maybe he does have a problem saying no to pretty girls.

    (or: James needs a date to his ex girlfriend's wedding, and Matthew, of course, is available. And then they kiss.)

    Summary

    They say that James must learn to live with his curse, and they also say that Cordelia must learn to accept her fate. But curses can break, and fates are never set in stone.

    Summary

    You could say Thomas Lightwood had a history with Alastair Carstairs. Nobody else in the world knew except for the two of them, but there was a history there. One of a summer love, climbing through windows, whispered promises, I love yous in the dark of night, kisses in empty hallways, late night drives with no destination, and heartbreak and arguments and tears.

    Their history was one studied by two people in the universe, the two of them.

     

    The two haven't seen each other in years, but then Alastair comes back to London, and Thomas can't pretend he doesn't have any feelings for Alastair.

    History never stops, does it?

    Summary

    When Alastair and Thomas both arrive at a new boarding school in London, the whole scene is new to them. Thomas briefly interacted with the Merry Thieves ahead of time through Christopher, but Alastair had no links to the area when he arrived. Eventually, both are settled, with groups of friends and much practice with the English language, they didn't think they had much to worry about. Now, at a certain age, they struggle with family, bullies, sports, health, friends, and on top of it all, a growing relationship between the two that both refuse to peruse for the sake of other love interests. Then there was one night when it all went so so horribly wrong.
    ...
    Alastair raised an eyebrow. "What exactly are you saying, Thomas?"
    He shrugged. "You just changed... a lot."
    "Well," he said, putting out and discarding his cigarette in a trash can. "A lot of things can happen in a year."
    There was a brief pause before Thomas got the courage to speak again. "I missed you. Just so you know."
    Alastair smiled softly. "I know. I missed you too." He jerked his head to the side. "Come on, I want to show you something."

    Summary

    Thomas leaned back against a post, looking down at him through heavy lashes. “I wouldn’t necessarily say we’re on speaking terms. In fact, I’d go as far as to say we’re adversaries.”

    This drew yet another sigh from Alastair. “You think I am unaware? You think I wouldn’t love to change that?” He paused, and, at the cocked-eyebrow he received from Thomas, he did not hesitate to continue. “Please. Five minutes, that’s all I ask of you.”

    “Fine.”
