The room was empty, though the bed clothes were crumpled. He felt a stab of disappointment, wondering where she could possibly be. Izzy had taken her new pet mundane to the park and Alec was adding runes to a dagger in the weapons room. With everyone else distracted he had hoped for the chance to talk to Clary alone, talk to her normally without interruptions from Forsaken, mad witches and mundanes. He had thought he might take her up to the greenhouse; she seemed the sort of person who would be able to appreciate its beauty.
He was about to leave to search for her in the kitchen or library when something caught his eye. It was a sketchpad, lying on the bedside table with a graphite pencil resting on top. He closed the door behind him and went to sit on her bed, pickin

Jace set her down on the couch. He slid his hands out from under her legs and back, resting her head lightly on a pillow. He hastily backed away from her, resisting the urge to touch her hair, wipe it from her face. But he couldn't give himself away. How could he explain something that he didn't understand himself. He turned around to see Alec staring at him wide eyed, and Isabelle looking slightly confused. Wow, Isabelle thought to herself, he carried her like she was glass, like he could break her at any moment, since when does he care about anyone, or anything for that matter, like that?
"What?" Jace demanded.
"Why did we bring her all the way here Jace?" It was Alec who spoke.
"Well what was I supposed to do?"
"You could have just given her the healing rune and left her in the apartment Jace! Now when she wakes up were going to have to explain all this!" He threw his hands up in the air in frustration.

The After-PartyYou ready to go? Jace asked.The After-Party6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
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

Do you remember the way he smiled, the way he said your name? Do you recall those things he told you, the moments he stole with you? Have you forgotten the day he said those three little words, the ones that now leave you so heartbroken? You dare to dream of having these things, little girl? How foolish you are, how blind. You don't see the lies, the reasons for what he did. If you found out... but you want to know, don't you? Let me tell you then, silly child, Jace died in your place. You should have been there, should have been the one struck down, not he. After all, you know he loved you, too.
Tears roll down her cheeks as the guilt washes over her again. "How pathetic I was..." she murmurs to herself, hugging her knees up to her chest. She is used to the grief, to the pain inside her where her heart ought to be, but she doesn't think it beats anymore. Jace had taken it with him when he-

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.

After the Fireworks ShowClary didnt think it was possible to be any happier than she was as she stood next to Jace and watched the fireworks. 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.

No, she told him as she closed the refrigerator. Just heating up some leftovers. You want some?
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.

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

Clary made fun of him about his new look; but then, Clary found everything about Simon's love life borderline hilarious. She couldn't believe he was dating Isabelle in any serious way. Of course, she also couldn't believe he was also dating Maia Roberts, a friend of theirs who happened to e a werewolf, in an equally serious way. And she really couldn't believe that Simon hadn't yet told either of them about the other.
"What would you prefer? 'What did the Count eat today, children? One helpless villager, two helpless villagers, three helpless villagers ."
"They're staring at you. Maybe their master died and they're looking for another vampire to own them. You could have pets." She grinned.
"Or," Simon said, "Maybe they're here for the hash browns."
Camille leaned forward. When she did, the neckline of her black silk blouse gaped open. If Simon has still been human, he would have blushed. "Will you let me see it?"
Simon could actually feel his eyes pop
The Game-3Clary could feel the sunlight on her face. Slowly she opened her eyes, and smiled as the memories of the previous night flooded her brain. She looked over to where she thought Jace would be laying, but realized that he wasn't there. Panic consumed her and she flung herself out of the bed, instantly regretting it. Without Jace's hands on her muscles, they ached like fire.The Game-36 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"You really have to stop doing that, you'll never heal." Clary looked up to see Jace, fully dressed, leaning against the window sill, hands crossed and smirking at her. 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.
Cold-5Clary stormed out in the hallway to see Simon walking towards her, with Alec and Magnus trailing behind him. All her anger dissipated as she looked at her best friend. He was wearing his favorite jeans, and a green t-shirt that said 'Your mom goes to college'. She saw him look down at her shirt and he smiled as he pulled her into a hug, luckily his arms stayed on the upper part of her back.Cold-56 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

"Oh ya know, just this vampire I know..." He chuckled and grabbed her shoulders, pulling her back and looking her over. She winced slightly from the pressure of his hands.

Taking her hand Jace led Clary down the greenhouse stairs. Her skin seemed to tingle with electricity where it touched his. The Institute was dark and quiet around them. Her skin glowed in the faint light cast by the witchlight rune-stone in her hand. He smiled to himself, glad that he had been able to give her a birthday present when no-one else had.
She caught him casting her a sideways glance as they walked and smiled that bewitching smile of hers.
You know, I havent seen your room yet, she pointed out.
Jaces heart suddenly pounded faster. Do you want me to show you?
Towing her in another direction he guided her down the corridor. Reaching his room he opened the door for her; she stepped inside and he closed the door behind them.
He suddenly wondered what she would think of his compulsively neat bedroom. The brief glimpse he had had of her own room as he had dragged her unconscious body from
Sauce-9"Jace I need you to help me." Clary was trying to lay down flat on the bed. Jace grimaced when he saw her, desperately trying to move her body down with just her arms. He slid his hands under her back and her knees, lifted her up, and laid her back down on her back. He slid his hands behind her back and pulled her into his arms. Clary saw the pain in Jace's eyes. All she wanted was to see it leave his eyes, she wanted them to glow with happiness, like they did this morning. He laid his face against her neck. "It's alright. I'm going to be fine Jace." Jace didn't say anything, he just held her. Clary tightened her arms around his back and breathed in the scent of his hair.

Jace was on his way to see Clary when he sensed that something was wrong. To others he would have appeared to be walking casually along the street, but he was actually on edge.
He was almost to Lukes house when he sensed somebody behind him. He turned to see a faerie. It was green with small delicate wings, which meant it was a pixie. When Jace glared at the pixie, she giggled. Jace turned to see what she was looking at. There was nothing there. Jace kept walking, but sensed the faerie still following him.
When he was at Lukes house, he turned to see the pixie was still there. Something didnt feel right to him, so he reached to draw his sword. As he did, he felt it snatched out of his hands. He spun around to see a group of faeries. One of them held his sword.
How could you be so stupid? Thought angrily to himself. The faeries spread out and formed a circle around him. He heard the door of Lukes house cr

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

"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.

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 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.

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.

"Smooth move, Izzy," Alec said under his breath.
Clary watched in silence, not wanting Jace to be angry with her for asking him stupid things and because he truly looked frightening at that moment. His jaw was set tight, his back muscles tight, hands clenched into fists, and gold eyes that pierced your soul with just one glare. All of that mixed together with Jace's attitude wasn't a very pleasant experience for anyone, especially Clary since she's always the one to calm him down.
"Sorry," Isabelle mumbled while looking down at the floor.
Jace growled again before turning to face the doorway. He threw Clary an apologetic glance before marching out of the doors and out into the hall. Clary knew not to go after him, but also knew exactly where he was going. The garden.
