    Ah my heart
    .

    Jace presses his brow to Alec’s and the contact is like a shot of ice water through his veins. [.] Alec feels it like a shot of morphine [.] Jace keeps holding him. Uncharacteristically gentle, cradling Alec’s head and murmuring. He only does this in battle – when they’re fucked up. When he’s trying to distract Alec from, say, a gaping arterial wound.
    [.] Alec can barely speak because it’s overwhelming, because Jace doesn’t usually let the bond lay open like this unless things are bad. Really bad. [.] Jace pressing comfort into the surface of his soul like a salve
    .
    Jace is still kind of crazy, but at least when he’s standing next to his parabatai, he’s less crazy. [.] His emotions are a hairline fracture in Alec’s brain, a wound you brush unexpectedly and it grates against itself. But Jace doesn’t have demonically poisoned wounds and Alec doesn’t have unforgiving psychotic episodes.
    Between the two of them, they’re almost one functional shadowhunter.
    .
    “You’re cursed, Alec Lightwood.”
    [.] Magnus’ closest living friend looks him dead in the eyes and reads the history of violence in his mortal soul like you read the back off a dime-store novel.
    [.] “There’s old black magic binding your soul. You’re a soul-bound parabatai – hardwired to choose your own kind. Every time. You’re a war machine, kid.” She shakes her head slow. “I like you too, Alec. I do. I think you love Magnus true enough to break a curse if you kissed him, but this is not a fairy tale you’re too far gone. [.] you love like a shadowhunter. Your siblings are your soldiers. Your friends are your underlings. Your lover is your weapon. It’s clear as day under the mushroom cloud, Lightwood. Magnus is your A-bomb. You love him so much it kills you, but he’s just too useful to leave on the sidelines. [.] You wouldn’t have to fix it,” she seethes, “if only you hadn’t asked him the first place.”
    “I didn’t ask him to do this!”
    “You don’t have to ask! [.] That’s a beauty of it, right? [.] He’ll just offer his fucking throat. Easiest kill you ever had. Right, shadowhunter!”
    .
    “Alec,” Magnus says, but like he’s been practicing saying it. Like it’s unfamiliar. “I thought I said to give me time.”
    It’s a very simple, reasonable, sentence. It also has the side-effect of stopping some crucial mechanism in the structures of Alec Lightwood’s heart and he feels his ribs go tight, so tight the barely healed wound in his chest seems to flare up. He wonders, stupidly, if he’s bleeding though his shirt. [.] says quietly, feeling all at once horrified and completely fucking stupid.
    [.]
    "I’m sorry if that scared you but…” He trails off, letting Alec fill in the terrible blanks but he doesn’t do it, just stands there like a tall, stupid statue staring at Magnus like he’s speaking another language entirely because he does not fucking understand.
    [.] "What is your business here?”
    Alec suddenly has no idea.
    Because it hadn’t occurred to him that Magnus would be staring at him like this, kind of blank-faced and professional. Because for Alec, it’s been just forty-eight hours since he was lying on the ground in an alley, choking on his own blood. Just forty-eight hours since Magnus was kneeling over him, panicked, and crushing his hand between his. For Magnus, it’s been a month. Alec has no idea what he’s allowed to do right now.
    Magnus just stares at him.
    Alec feels his fucking insides turning to dust.
    “Do you want him here?” Mai demands after a long enough pause that it’s become clear Alec has gravely misjudged his welcome and should be, rightly, consigned to an appropriate limbo. The hallway outside would do.
    But before Alec can back out the door, Magnus says, calmly, “Yes. I want him here.”
    Alec takes the breath he wasn’t aware he was holding.
    .
    "wanted to have done something to fix myself before I saw you again [.] Because otherwise I was going to hate you [.] so much it would destroy me and I just couldn’t…”
    [.] “I’m so fucking sorry. For all of it. For not stopping you. For always asking you to help. For not being there with you afterward. Catarina was right I… I don’t think straight through the parabatai bond and I treat people I love like they’re all shadowhunters and you’re not. [.] I should have never lost track of that and I’m sorry for that too. [.] Being with me doesn’t obligate you to fight my battles, Magnus.”
    “I want to fight them,” Magnus whispers. “Don’t treat me like I’m helpless.”
    “I know you’re not.”
    “Don’t treat me like I’m less than I was.”
    “You’re not,” Alec rasps. “God, Magnus, you could never be less because you got hurt defending us. [.] I don’t care. Do you understand me? I love you forever no matter what you are as long as it’s you.”
    Magnus laughs [.] “In sickness and in health?”
    “Yes,” Alec whispers. “Yes, exactly.”
