The loud drumming of her heart drowned out her ears. She had been standing outside the weapons room for over twenty minutes just wondering what he would think and how to tell him. He'll leave me, she thought, or worse he'll tell me to get rid of it. The girl knew her mind was running away with her. He would never say those things but still she couldn't help but wonder. Jace was about to leave for a route sweep of the sewers. They had be some activity there but still nothing had been showing up. This could possibly be the worst time to someone this but she had to do it. Even with that being said the door handle seemed to move away from her telling her to leave, this of course was just her mind playing tricks again, and she started to think of when he and asked her to marry him.
The institute was completely empty, even church was nowhere to be found. Jace had asked Clary to meet her in the greenhouse. It was late in th

Clary looked over at him. They were sitting at the bar in Magnuss house at a party for something. She couldnt remember exactly what the occasion was. She nodded and got down from her chair.
What about Izzy and Alec? she said as she scanned the room. She saw Izzy talking to a faerie knight and Alec and Magnus were on the other side of the room.
They can take care of themselves, Jace said following her gaze. He turned back to her. Lets ditch this joint.
He placed his hand at the small of her back and guided her towards the door. He grabbed her light coat off the coat rack by the door and helped her put it on. Then he held the door open for her as they exited the building.
The streets were practically empty and the Institution wasnt that far away, so they decided to walk rather than take a cab. Jace laced his fingers through Clarys as they walked down the street. He glanced at her ou

She knew everyone would be wondering why she had left. Simon, Izzy, Alec and Magnus.Not a Morgernstern in sight6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
He was the reason she had left. She hadn't been thinking when Izzy had suggested they all go out to dinner. She hadn't realized that they would go to Taki's. She couldn't be with him there, she couldn't look at Jace inside that building. All she would see was his smooth calm face from that night, hear his flat voice in her head.
"I'll just be your brother from now on."
She shuddered, but not from the cold. She had so desperately wanted to tell him. Wanted to tell him everything. But he didn't want that. It disgusted him. He just wanted to be her brother. Say it, Clary told herself, say it to yourself. Inside her mind Clary yelled at herself.

He looked from the fan of red hair spread out over her pillow, down to the sweatshorts on her hips that had a silver star embroidered on the edge of the cloth, which rested lightly on her thigh. Jace itched to touch it, he hadn't even noticed it before. But he fought his desires, and kept his hands on her arms and neck, no where else was safe, for her or for him.Need-26 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
He watched her chest rise and fall with her steady breathing, and had to close his eyes so that he wouldn't pull her on top of him. He couldn't do that. He couldn't do anymore than what she asked, because he had promised himself he would never, never hurt her again. For the first time in his life, he was putting what he wanted aside, with great struggle he might add, and giving someone else what they needed. That someone else was her.

That vampire motorcycles make great getaway vehicles? Clary huffed as she tried to keep pace with his long legged stride.
No well yes, but that wasnt what I was talking about.
What then? She was starting to get annoyed with him the others had all decided to go back to bed for a few more hours before going after the Cup at midday, when the sun would be brightest and the demons weakest, but Jace had refused to allow her to.
I realised that you dont know how to defend yourself, a skill that you might need if we are going after the Cup, he said over his shoulder at her.
Hey! she said, feeling rankled. I did just fine in Du Mort - I managed to hit that werewolf, didnt I? though she would be the first to admit that had been a spectacular fluke.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
READ AT YOUR OWN RISK IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE BOOKS!!!!!!!
This is a week after Jace and Clary meet at Taki's and Jace tells her that he only want to be her brother.
Sitting in Luke's spare room on the bed, looking at her finished drawing, a stab of pain twists through her abdomen, she leans over the bed glad that she hasn't eaten anything and also glad Jace isn't here he'd make a fuss over her keeping quiet about being sick, 'Stop thinking about him' She chastised herself, this is the second time today, as she finished leaning over the bed the shrieking sound of the telephone rings, hoping it's not Jace again.
"Clary," yelled Jocelyn
"Yes" Clary called back as she walks into the lounge room where mom and Luke are.
"I'm not here, I don't want to talk to him" Clary whispered, shaking her head, hoping he didn't hear her.
Walking back to her room, she remembers that afternoon at
Jace and Clary baby"Jace, it's your turn." Clary said with a yawn before falling back to sleep. She was right of course, since she had gotten up last time. Groggily, Jace got up out of bed and walked to the room across the hall and smiled. Even if she was being fussy, she was the most beautiful baby ever. Gently he picked up the crying 4 month old and sat with her in the rocking chair, rocking back and forth, back and forth until she started to fall back asleep.Jace and Clary baby5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Of course she had a name, Anabelle, meaning lovable in Latin which described all of her wrapped into one. Everyone would always argue and debate over who she looked like more. To Jace however, she was just a perfect combination of himself and Clary. Her soft hair was Clary's brilliant color red however unlike Clary's hair it wasn't curly, she had Jace's soft waves. She also had Jace's luminous gold eyes, but they had her mother's eyelashes on them, his eyebrows, her nose, his lips and smile, her facial stucture, and so on.

A sweet Jace and Clary fanfic"Come on Jace" Clary begged her boyfriend. She had been training for a month and Jace always helped her with her training by showing her techniques and even helping her learn the history of shadow hunters in the library. Although this often led to kissing instead of studying which she didn't mind at all. But still he'd never sparred with her before. Jace thought that if they sparred he would accidentally hurt her due to the fact that he is far more trained than she is. It's not like she didn't have anyone to spar with though. Alec and Isabelle were always happy to help Clary with her training and they wouldn't go easy on her like Jace would if they ever did spar. Isabelle would help Clary learn how to use a whip and use it right and Alec would help her with archery.A sweet Jace and Clary fanfic5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Jace and Clary-BlissJace wiped his hair from his forehead. The demon was huge, it spun around him in a slow circle, prowling, waiting for its moment to strike. Alec was swinging his seraph blade from hand to hand, shifting from foot to foot waiting for the attack. They had both fought this kind of demon before, but never with just two on their side. It was called a Black Demon, known for its poisoning abilities. If a shadow hunter even touched a speck of the demon's blood, he or she was infected, and would suffer from symptoms ranging from paralyzation to death. Shadow hunters never took them on alone. Jace licked his lips and gripped his hand on his blade handle. The demon continued to circle them; it had two legs, a human like body, but no face, not even the shape of a nose or eyes. It loved to terrorize mundanes before killing them. This one had decided to stroll into the city and do just that.Jace and Clary-Bliss6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Come in, she told him. She had been leaning against the headboard of the bed in her cotton pyjamas, her sketchpad resting on her knees, drawing by the light of a single bedside lamp.
Jace pushed open the door, but hovered in the threshold. I saw the light under your door. I didnt wake you up?
No, Clary replied, shaking her head.
Good. Jace came into to room, closing the door behind him. He was wearing pyjama trousers, but no shirt. Clary could clearly see the lattice of scars and faint marks of runes that covered his lean, yet muscled body and felt a blush creep into her cheeks. Several permanent runes decorated his skin.

Jace woke to the sound of crying. Summer sunshine was pouring through the windows of the country house even though the morning was still early. Clary stirred as well, lifting her head from his chest to look at the door. Leaning down, Jace brushed his lips lightly across hers.
Ill go, he murmured. She blinked sleepily at him and smiled.
He slid out from under the covers and reached for his dressing gown, pausing at the door for a brief moment to glance wistfully back at his wife. The sunlight bathed her bare skin with a warm glow, illuminating the thin white Rune Marks and shining off her hair.
The crying was coming from the nursery. Baby Luke, just over a year old, was standing up in his crib, holding on to the bars with tiny hands.

She continued to stare at herself as she thought over what she had learned a few minutes ago. Then, a thought popped into her head. Jace. What is he going to think?
Clary didn't have much time to ponder her question because she heard the door close and she knew Jace was back. She heard him call her name, but she still continued to stare at herself in the mirror. She saw Jace's reflection as he walked into the bathroom, but didn't turn to look at him.
"There you are, love," he said as he wrapped his arms around her waist from behind. "I missed you." He placed a kiss at the spot where her neck met her shoulder. As he rested his chin on the spot he had just kissed, he looked at their reflection in the mirror.
"It was only a few hours."
"A few hours too long for me," he murmured against her skin.
How do I tell him? she thought to herself.

The girl spun around. Standing in the doorway of the storage room was the bouncer from the entrance and a Mundane boy with thick glasses and floppy hair. Clary, the boy had called her. It was a cute name, Jace thought. It suited her somehow.
Why are you in here by yourself? the boy continued. He was wearing ridiculous clothing for Pandemonium, loose jeans and a faded t-shirt, and was blinking at the girl stupidly, utterly blind like every other Mundane. Most other Mundanes, Jace amended in his head, looking at Clarys baffled expression. What happened to those guys, the ones you said had knives?
So shed been telling the truth, she had alerted the police or told the club security in any case. She was sensible, Jace realised, trying to do the right thing. Then he frowned she had followed what she thought were vigilant killers into a dark room all on her own, without waiting for the security? That certainly wa

He was still fingering the necklace that held the Morgenstern ring as he gazed up at the night sky. Clary drew her eyes from the fireworks to look at Jace. He was smiling as he looked. Out of the corner of his eye, he saw her looking at him, so he turned to look into her eyes. He bent down to brush his lips across hers before he turned back to the fireworks. She sighed and leaned her head against his side. Jace moved his hand to rub her bare arm and then rested it on her shoulder.After the Fireworks Show6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
After about ten more minutes, the show ended. There was a loud cheer from the group of Shadowhunters a little ways in front of us. They were soon joined by howls coming from the werewolves.

Behind closed doors"Go fetch Clary for me..." Isabelle's words run through his head again, driving him towards the door at the end of the hallway. Was it always this close? Surely he never felt that... it always used to be too far. Is widdle Jace afraid? Is he scared of what's behind a silly door? "Yes," he answers himself, "he is when she is on the other side." You weren't always, says a voice in his head. Remember her birthday? Oh yes, he can remember her birthday.

Clary smiled up at the huge gothic cathedral with its arching spires. She didnt even see the glamour that concealed the Institute anymore unless she concentrated hard. The door opened at her light touch as if it recognised her now, without her even needing to think the entry words. The autumn sunlight streamed through the windows of the foyer, casting puddles of golden light on the marble floor.
She looked at herself in the elevator mirror as she rode up, tilting her head to examine her reflection. She had spent far longer than usual getting ready today. It was the first time she had visited the Institute since they had all returned from Alicante a few days ago, since she and Jace were officially together, and she hadnt been able to decide what to wear. She ended up in her normal clothes; faded jeans, trainers and a simple t-shirt Simon had given her with the slogan I Bite he had given i

"Lie down on your stomach and pull up your shirt." Clary did as Isabelle asked, but slowly. Going from standing to sitting was still particularly painful. Isabelle noticed. "It still hurts that bad?"
"I'm fine." Clary heard Isabelle laugh as she pulled her stele out from her boot. "What?" she asked.
"You. You've sustained a nearly fatal injury and yet you still want to convince everyone that you're fine. It's alright to feel pain, we won't think you're weak." Izzy pulled Clary's shirt up higher to expose the part of her back that had been injured. "It looks like it's healing pretty well." Jace allowed his eyes to look at Clary's bare skin and he cringed. There was a huge line across her back, fading, but still there from where the claw had met her body. He knew it would go away so

Clary opened her eyes and sighed. Why was he always right? Slowly, so slowly, she rose from her bed. A hiss of pain escaped her lips and she stood rigidly. Every muscle on her body pulsed and ached, but she had to get into more comfortable clothes. She couldn't sleep in jeans. He knew that this was going to happen. He had told her not to come. Her mind went back to the beginning of the day, in the kitchen of the Institute.
"Absolutely not." Jace hissed.
"It's not your decision Jace!" Clary yelled back. Isabelle cut in.
"Jace, it's just one demon that snuck into the city. Besides, she has to start sometime, she is a Shadowhunter, and she' s been training." Clary smiled at Izzy, thankful for the support.
"She.... is... a..... novice," Jace growled. "She is not ready."
"And how would you know what I'm capable of?" Clary practically screamed. It had hurt how much he hated the idea of fighting along

Nah. Im not really hungry, he explained as he grabbed an apple. He threw it up in the air, caught it, and then washed it off. He then took a bite of the apple before asking, Have you seen Clary?
I think she went to her room, Isabelle told him as she pushed the buttons on the microwave. She said her arm still kinda hurt from the demon attack. Why?
Jace grimaced when Isabelle said Clarys arm hurt. It had been his idea to go looking for demons. Oh, I just needed to talk to her about something. He took another bite of his apple.

"Simon.." she whispered, looking around.
"I took him outside after he, uhhh, while you were...he's outside collecting his..thoughts." Izzy almost laughed at herself.
"I have to see him, I have to thank him." Clary started for the door. There was no pain, nothing, it was like she had never even been hurt. His venom had cured everything. But the vision of Simon in pain, his agony, would not leave her mind.

His eyes were light and happy, smiling at her, but if she focused she could see something else smoldering beneath the gold. Slowly, she crossed the room to him. Jace braced himself for her touch. He knew that the next couple of days were going to be difficult. They finally had the freedom to love each other openly, and she had to go and get her spine injured.
