but I liked how it softened slightly

We are not soulmates because our hands intertwine perfectly
or because our kisses are like fireworks.
We are not soulmates because we never argue or fight.
We are not soulmates because we hold each other perfectly
or understand each other without speaking.
We are not soulmates because of any of those things.
But we are soulmates for sure.
Because even when we argue or fight
we will never ever give up on each other.
Soulmates don’t have to be perfect.
They just have to hold on, and never let go.

- Soulmate Stories | Nikita Gill

Chapter Text

Love is born into every human being: it calls back the halves of our original nature together; it tries to make one out of two and heal the wound of human nature.

Jace and Alec, in my opinion, have one of the best relationships on the show because it is a bond that is beyond love or physical attraction or friendship or whatever. It’s kind of a soul bond.

But to me, everything about him said: 'Love me, because nobody ever has.' It was all over him, like fingerprints.

“I remember when I met Jace,” Alec said. He’d found two boxes and was dumping bandages into one. “He walked out of a Portal from Idris. He was skinny, he had bruises and he had these big eyes. He was arrogant, too. He and Isabelle used to fight.” He smiled at the memory.

- Cassandra Clare, Lord of the Shadows (x)

Chapter Text

When two souls fall in love, there is nothing else but the yearning to be close to each other.
The presence that is felt through a hand held, a voice heard, or a smile seen.
Souls do not have calendars or clocks, nor do they understand the notion of time or distance.
They only know it feels right to be with one another.
This is the reason why you miss someone so much when they are not there - even if they are only in the next room.
Your soul only feels their absence - it doesn't realize the separation is temporary.
Can I ask you something?
Anything.
Why is it every time we say good night, it feels like good-bye?
- Souls // Lang Leav

Reasons to not kiss him
1. you weren’t raised to love tender.
2. when he’s around all you do is tremble. when he’s around you want to get on your knees. look how much power he has over you. it’s dangerous.
3. he’s too good at forgiving and you’re too good at violence.
4. you know what they say about monsters. you know what happens to the boys who love them. are you going to do that to him?
5. your hands don’t know how to be gentle. think about the last beautiful thing that shattered in your palms. the fresh rosebuds crumbling between your fingers like a bruise. you wolf-boy, you war machine. you wouldn’t know how to hold something magic and not destroy it.
6. if you hurt him it might kill you.
7. if you hurt him you might kill yourself.
8. you are very bad at rehabilitation. this is one addiction you’d fail to give up. he’s going to ruin you for all other kisses and all other boys and you’ll spend the rest of your life trying to forget his name.
9. you still aren’t sure he isn’t a dream.
10. if you kiss him, you might wake up.
reasons to kiss him:
1. because he’s beautiful.
2. because he asked.
3. because he preceded please with, i’m not afraid of you.

I’ve found what I’ve been searching for
a reason not to be afraid of the horrors the world delights in creating
I’ve found everything I never knew I needed in you
and you take my hand, you take my burden,

like I haven’t transformed myself into atlas to save you
and you give me peace in the middle of a raging war
you give me hope when the stars are banished by fire
because we’re the reason humanity first starting writing love stories

first. he touches you and you light on fire. your wrist blazes where his fingers meet your skin. the burns don’t show, but it’s hard to breathe with ash in your lungs. it’s so hard to breathe. you’re suffocating daily.
second. it hurts to watch him. he shines. he’s brighter than the sun, he’s too beautiful for your eyes. it’s hard to look at him. it’s even harder to look away from him. you’re going blind.
third. your ears are tuned to his voice. you could pick him out in a sea of thousands. his voice makes pretty singers who sing pretty songs sound dull. his voice makes everything else sound ugly.
fourth. the color of his eyes is blue enough to drown in. he is turning you into a clichéd love-wrecked being. you’re drowning, always sinking. down, down, down.
fifth. you know him. you love him. through a thousand lifetimes, across millions of stars, you’d find him, you’d never leave him. you love him, till death do you part.

“You go into the drift and you leave all the baggage outside the pod,” Hodge said, and Alec was eighteen years old again, nodding at his instructor and standing at the Academy’s test rig before he turned to see Jace coming in his direction dressed in a piloting suit for the first time and as stunning as ever.

Inside his chest his heart picked up the pace, palms sweating even through his gloves and a lump in his throat so big Alec felt like he couldn’t breathe. Jace had been so sure they would make a great team, the best team, but the only thing Alec felt sure of right then was that he couldn’t do this.

― Cassandra Clare, City of Lost Souls

Chapter Text

What we had wasn’t an unrequited love, but it was more synonymous to a love so forbidden to the ones we love.
We ignited a spark, then a flame, and then a forest fire that burn ever so ferociously.
We were the constellations, the stars that shoned so bright, the moonlit sky in the darkest of nights.
We were the rays that entered through our window, The sunniest heat in the desert, The fiercest, fiery light that displayed its firesome orange.
What we had was intense, And yet so emotional, How we’re ready to chew on each other, And then next coddle each other to sleep.
We were sensual, Our love so voluptuous, The connection we shared so surreal, But the dream of having us together forever remains only a painful longing.
What we had together was transient reality,
One I’ll never forget,
A bond I’ll always miss,
And you, I’ll always love.

Jace leaned forward, his palms flat on the ground. “I’m a warrior,” he said. “I was brought up as a warrior. I didn’t have toys, I had weapons. I slept with a wooden sword until I was five.

Chapter Text

the universe whispers in my ear, 'you deserve better than this bloodstained broken soul', and I can only think about how wrong the stars are
for my heart would have warned me to run, but instead it saw the good person burrowed inside the bruises, instead it saw the same shadows that drift over my skin
and it dug itself, bloody and barely beating, to replace the empty space in his chest, the very first time he spoke my name like it was the start of his salvation
so tell me, constellations, I see the good in him, and if the universe thinks me so good, what does that say about just how brightly he burns
so when his hands touch me with a gentleness he doesn’t grant himself, when he looks at me with his knuckles red and raw, I know that violence doesn’t equal damned
and the universe whispers 'darling, you can’t save him, oh, the fates tangle their threads but this time they are so mistaken, and I can only bring myself to swear 'watch me do it anyway'

Chapter Text

They once told me that we were one soul in two bodies.
I do not think I understood the full truth of it
until now
when I am missing half of my soul
and you are gone.
My heart,
my blood, 
half of my soul––

I would build a thousand monuments in your name
and a tower tall enough to pierce the sky
if only it would bring you back to me.

I would tear down every temple in this world
and set fire on every altar to the gods
if only it would make them relinquish you back to me.

Oh, but half of my soul,
do not yet despair
for I am still here
and I still remember your name.

I have not forgotten the heroes of old
and the lessons their legends carry.
I have not forgotten the story of Achilles,
and he reminds me now how to mourn the loss 
of half of my soul.
Oh, half of my soul, 
I will burn down and raze this land 
for daring to tear you from my fingers, 
and then––
and then, my love, 
when this land has bled for you,
perhaps then I will be allowed 
to join you soon again.

Jace holding Alec.
I can't live without him. I don't wanna be alive if we're on different sides, Alec.
You can kill me. Just please, let me get to him first. Without him, I'm... I'm nothing.
Alec holding Jace.
Entreat me not to leave thee,
Or return from following after thee—
For whither thou goest, I will go,
And where thou lodgest, I will lodge.
Thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God.
Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried.
The Angel do so to me, and more also,
If aught but death part thee and me.
- Parabatai oath

Il y a longtemps que je t'aime
Jamais, jamais je ne t'oublierai

Never ever will I forget you.

Chapter Text

I never thought that time would be something stopping us
but everytime we want to force the universe into silence
a cry breaks out in the dark and the moment disappears
it always seems as though we are seconds away
from saying the words that our sadness wants us to choke on
when the earth sends out the satellite call that it needs saving
so I have to savor the way my name sounds falling from your lips
the way your hands grasp my skin like an anchor
and let the way I work to save you be my answer
// to the question we almost got to ask by Abby S

Chapter Text

Some days I can't even trust myself // It's killing me to see you this way
You're gone, gone, gone away // I watched you disappear
All that's left is a ghost of you // Now we're torn, torn apart, there's nothing we can do
Though the truth may vary // This ship will carry // Our bodies safe to shore
Just let me go we’ll meet again soon
Now wait wait wait for me
Please hang around
I’ll see you when I fall asleep
- Of Monsters & Men, Little Talks

Do it! I don't want to be alive if we're on different sides, Alec.
I forgive you. I'm sorry we couldn't save you.

Chapter Text

there are moments
when my heart beats loud enough
that the hunting voices echoing inside my mind fall silent
when the constellations that haunt my every move fall still
and it’s when your arms wrap around me
and all I can do is breath you in 
this bruised heart of mine, it restarts 
when you surround me with your soul
and I need you with me
even if it’s just your echo 
so I’ll spend my days talking to the stars
hoping that there’s a satellite that can carry my love back home
- to the place where I stashed my soul, in your hands // by Abby S (via fireandsteelofangels)

Chapter Text

I always thought I might be bad.
Now I'm sure that it's true.
'Cause I think you're so good.
And I'm nothing like you.
Look at you go.
I adore you.
I wish that I knew
What makes you think I'm so special.
If I could begin to be
half of what you think of me
I could do about anything.

I think we deserve a soft epilogue, my love.

I love him - there is no other pretty word that can drip from my tongue

You can't love someone unless you love yourself first.
Bullshit.
I have never loved myself.
But you, oh God.
I loved you so much.
I forgot what hating myself felt like.

- Yes.
“Please…”
- I’ve got you.

You are not mine-
a gift, perhaps, or a debt repaid.
Flames in your hands, shield on your arm-
defender, protector.
Where I walk you follow
and where I burn, you burn.

Chapter Text

darling, you are the one
born with galaxies and supernovas like fireworks in your eyes.
your fingers hold strength that mine will never know.
your bones carry prophecies that mine does not dare dream of.
i was only born
     with flower petals staining my cheeks pink
     and strange songs murmuring faintly in my heart. 
i was only born 
     with snatches of fool’s good trapped in my hair
     and gossamer tangled somewhere between my lungs and my ribs.
and darling, i do not mind
if your light is brighter
   your voice is louder 
   your steps are stronger
i have always known, after all, 
that your fate soars much higher than mine ever will
and it does not do to envy a demigod
                                               or an angel 
                                               or a hero
                                               or a friend.
but darling, this i swear:
when they come for you
     (and they will, my darling, 
     let’s not lie to ourselves
                          to each other)
i will grind my teeth into bloodlust fangs.
i will file my nails into tigers’ claws.
and this, this i swear:
i will make them all face 
the thin-edged broken glass
     s h a t t e r e d  p i e c e s 
          of myself.

How do you say goodbye
To someone you’ve been searching for
your entire life?

Like a lost soul,
trying to find final peace.
How do you say goodbye 
to someone you’ve been searching for
your entire life?

You say their name.
So I say yours.
“Steve?” // nikka ursula

I suppose,
all you can do is say their name.
So I whisper yours
through lips that won’t move;
your name translating
to “I don’t want to go.”

Only it meant
“I love you
until this earth swallows my bones
or to dust
I return.”

that girl with a broken heart she's worth more than she realizes
there's a galaxy hidden behind her tired eyes when she smiles she draws you in like a black hole
the tears that spill from her eyes fall like shooting stars the anger in her soul flares like a supernova
and oh, that heart it loves as harshly as the sun burns

And because in the darkness you will reach out a hand,
not knowing for certain if someone else is even there.
And your hands will meet,
and neither of you will ever need to be alone again.
And that’s all I know about love. // Neil Gaiman

Chapter Text

Kindness is often mistaken for softness
and let me tell you, friends
...that is a mistake you don’t want to make.
Kind people are not born that way,
they do not stumble into it.
Kind people are forged in fire and darkness and imploding stars
…they have steel cores.
Throw a punch and you’re going to break your hand.
Kind people are kind because they know firsthand that life isn’t. (x)

It was too big to reply to in words.
It was everything.
It was all the love in Alec’s face when he looked at Jace
even when Jace was being annoying
Jace holding Alec while he was wounded
and the desperation in Jace’s eyes
that terror that comes only from thinking you might lose someone you can’t live without.
Simon nodded once. It was too big to reply to in words. It was everything. It was all the love he saw in Jem’s eyes when he talked about Will, and all the love in Alec’s face when he looked at Jace, even when Jace was being annoying, and a clear memory he had of Jace holding Alec while he was wounded and the desperation in Jace’s eyes, that terror that comes only from thinking you might lose someone you can’t live without.

But then you came back again: as sun on water.
I reached for you, skimmed my hands over the light of you.
I knew, finally, I would never be through.

Chapter Text

I refuse to stand still 
in the face of losing you
you
are not a matter of want
but a matter of need
and I hope that you can hear the way
my heartbeat jumps at the sound of your name
and there are words we talk around
things our eyes whisper in a crowded place
when your hands find my skin
when we don’t need anything but a small glance
and I will find you in the dark
I would fight the burning beginnings of the universe to bring you home
even if home doesn’t mean my lips on yours 
our hands intertwined, our souls knit together like puzzle pieces 
because home exists where you are and I need you
- we’re better with each other, so come back and prove me right // Abby S
