    Nicole Smithhas quoted3 years ago
    A true vampire knows he is dead. He accepts his death. But you, you think you are still one of the living. It is that which makes you so dangerous.
    Nicole Smithhas quoted3 years ago
    all souls mattered to the fabric of the world.

    I loved you, so I drew these tides of men into my hands
    and wrote my will across the sky in stars.

    “And quit baring your fangs at me. It’s making me nervous.”
    “Good,” Simon said. “If you want to know why, it’s because you smell like blood.”
    “It’s my cologne. Eau de Recent Injury.” Jace raised his left hand. It was a glove of white bandages, stained across the knuckles where blood had seeped through.

    since the first time I saw you, I have belonged to you completely. I still do. If you want me.”
    Maria Ignashiahas quoted4 years ago
    And now I’m looking at you,” he said, “and you’re asking me if I still want you, as if I could stop loving you. As if I would want to give up the thing that makes me stronger than anything else ever has. I never dared give much of myself to anyone before—bits of myself to the Lightwoods, to Isabelle and Alec, but it took years to do it—but, Clary,
    Maria Ignashiahas quoted4 years ago
    I always thought love made you stupid. Made you weak. A bad Shadowhunter. To love is to destroy. I believed that.”
    Leda Sampilohas quoted5 years ago
    People aren’t born good or bad. Maybe they’re born with tendencies either way, but it’s the way you live your life that matters

    Because think how we’ll feel in the morning. Think how much worse it will be pretending that we don’t mean anything to each other in front of everyone else after we’ve spent the night together, even if all we do is sleep. It’s like having just a little bit of a drug—it only makes you want more.

    could hardly bear to look at him and still say no. Looking at him now—even if she hadn’t been in love with him, that part of her that was her mother’s daughter, that loved every beautiful thing for its beauty alone, would still have wanted him.

    He kissed her gently, carefully, but it wasn’t gentleness she wanted, not now, not after all this time, and she knotted her fists in his shirt, pulling him harder against her. He groaned softly, low in his throat, and then his arms circled her, gathering her against him, and they rolled over on the grass, tangled together, still kissing. There were rocks digging into Clary’s back, and her shoulder ached where she’d fallen from the window, but she didn’t care. All that existed was Jace; all she felt, hoped, breathed, wanted, and saw was Jace. Nothing else mattered.

    She was rewarded by the catch in his breathing. Slowly he drew himself up onto his elbows. Now he was looking down at her, and his expression had changed—there was a look on his face she’d never seen before, a sleepy, almost deadly light in his eyes. He let his fingers trail down her cheek to her lips,

    I don’t even want to want anyone but you.” He reached out, trailed his fingers lightly through her hair, fingertips brushing her cheek. “Now at least I know why.”

    Clary’s voice had sunk to a whisper. “I don’t want anyone but you, either.”

    She was suddenly aware of how close they were standing; she was leaning against him

    His touch was gentle, despite the calluses on his fingertips. Of course, Jace had the same calluses from fighting; probably all Shadowhunters had them—

    lifted her face to his. She was too surprised to move, even when he leaned toward her and she realized, belatedly, what he was doing: Reflexively she shut her eyes as his lips brushed gently over hers, sending shivers through her. A sudden fierce longing to be held and kissed in a way that would make her forget everything else surged through her.

    that was why she couldn’t cry, she realized, staring dry-eyed at the ceiling. Because what was the point in crying when there was no one there to comfort you? And what was worse, when you couldn’t even comfort yourself?

    "Protect the Lightwoods if you can. But don't protect me."

    Simon raised his head. "Why not?"

    "I suppose,"

    You don't believe me?" Jace asked. "Fine. Go ahead. Kiss me right now."
