Chapter 1: Jace/Alec ~ A tragedy, darling.
“ What are we, science or magic?
A tragedy, darling.”
Chapter 2: Jace/Alec ~ A Conversation With The Sun God
Sometimes we hurt the people we love most,
not because we want to,
but because no one has ever dared to come this close.
No one ever truly wants someone else to see their frayed soul.
Apollo still carries Icarus’s heart, all he could rescue of him from the water.
And I still carry every happy memory of what we were,
all I could rescue from the wreckage of where we pulled us apart.
Someone once said to me, “You would be so loved, if you just let people love you.”

Chapter 5: Jace/Alec ~ is this finally humanity?
an angel pulls clumps of feathers from his wings outside the gates of heaven. is this it? (honor

a martyr rinses blood from his mouth and hands in a second-floor bathroom. is this it? (nerves
aflame, and linoleum spattered red) is this finally sacrifice?

A traveling mendicant once lectured you, when you were still little,
about how every human’s fate could be read in the stars.
Reading the stars was difficult, he had explained. Their book was written
in a language only angels might have spoken fluently, but in its pages
every future course had been outlined. It could no more be altered than
a quill could blot the sun with an inkspot.

Chapter 25: Jace/Alec ~ pull me close, breathe me in, let me go
Do you know how it is when one wakes
at night suddenly and asks,
listening to the pounding heart: what more do you want,
insatiable? Spring, a nightingale is singing.
I won’t return. I want to know what’s left
after rejecting youth and spring,
after rejecting those red lips
from which heat seemed to flow
on sultry nights.
