All that running and getting nowhere, he thought. Story of my life.
She is fine. She hates us both but it really didn't sound like anything else was wrong
I have the benefit of experience which tells me that sulking solves nothing
She wondered why she'd ever thought trusting someone who wore that much eyeliner was a good idea.
Drowning yourself won't help, she told herself sternly. Now, drowning Will, on the other hand...
Sometimes, when I have to do something I don't want to do, I pretend I'm a character from a book. It's easier to know what they would do.
She had never imagined she had the power to make someone else so happy. And not a magical power, either--a purely human one.
The funny thing about mundies is how obsessed with magic they are for a bunch of people who don't even know what the word means.
He felt his heart, which no longer beat, contract, and he wondered if there was anything in the world as painful as not being able to protect the people you loved.
You'd think the Angel would have been foresighted enough to give us a birth-control rune, but no dice.
Is that why you didn't call me? Because I'm an idiot?
There was an electric anger in his gaze, and a sort of challenge that made Simon long to hit him with something heavy. Like a pickup truck.
I must say, I rather like the way you manage Will.
When you find a man you wish to marry, Tessa, remember this: You will know what kind of man he is not by the things he says, but by the things he does.
To be beautiful you had to be willowy and tall. When you were as short as Clary was, just over five feet, you were cute. Not pretty or beautiful, but cute.
Is this the part where you tell me you're secretly in love with me? Vampire mojo strikes again.
Clary closed her eyes. Remembering the way Jace had looked at her the night she'd freed Ithuriel, she couldn't help but imagine the way he'd look at her now if he saw her trying to lie down to die on the sand beside him. He wouldn't be touched, wouldn't think it was a beautiful gesture. He'd be angry at her for giving up. He'd be so--disappointed.
Now I wonder all the time how you go back after something like that. Whether we can ever be friends again, or if what we had is broken into pieces. Not because of her, but because of me.
You're a disaster for us, Clary! You're a mundane, you'll always be one, you'll never be a Shadowhunter! You don't know how to think like we do, think about what's best for everyone-- all you think about is yourself! But there's a war now, or there will be, and I don't have time or the inclination to follow around after you, trying to make sure you don't get us killed! Go home, Clary. Go home!
Look at him. The face of a bad angel and eyes like the night sky in Hell. He's very pretty, and vampires like that. I can't say I mind either.
I am not the one of us who has no heart.
As long as we're together, I'm ready for anything.
So you interrupted my date to make fun of me for still living with my parents. Couldn't you have done that on a night I didn't have a date? That's most nights, in case you're curious.
I love you and I'll love you until I die, and if there's a life after that, I will love you then.
She'd always had such contempt for mundanes, the way all Shadowhunters did--she'd believed that they were soft, stupid, sheeplike in their complacency. Now she wondered if all that hatred didn't just stem from the fact that she was jealous. It must be nice not worrying that every time one of your family members walked out the door, they'd never come back.
For that was what love was, wasn't it - to burn bright in someone else's eyes?
That sounds almost practiced, James Carstairs. How many girls have you made swoon with that observation?
Someday, Will, I will go where none can follow me, and I think it will be sooner rather than later. Have you ever asked yourself why I agreed to be your parabatai?
The Law may be hard but it's the law.
Here's a hot tip: Most girls don't like being stalked.
