    Summary

    The Uprising showed to Shadowhunters and Downworlders that there was something irrevocably wrong with their way of living. The Downworlders united forces and refused to sign the Accords, they didn't want to be put down anymore, they demanded equality. The Clave, knowing that they wouldn’t win in a war against the Downworlders, especially without the Mortal Cup, decided to work together with them, creating new laws.

    It would all be good, if almost seventeen years after the Uprising they weren't still having problems reaching an agreement. The Downworlders didn't trust that the Shadowhunters could see them as equals.

    A marriage was proposed.

    Alec had always known he would have to marry someone he didn't love one day, he had never imagined it would be like this, he had never imagined it would be a Downworlder.

    Summary

    Face blank, Alec steps forward without a moment of hesitation to stand in front of the Inquisitor, his people parting respectfully before him to clear his path as he goes. He comes to a halt a few paces in front of the Clave representative and the guardsmen she’d brought from Alicante. A coiled leather whip hangs from the belt of the man at her left shoulder.

    Shoulders drawn back and hands clasped behind his waist, Alec meets Imogen Herondale’s steel gaze. The words are ritual and although Alec has said them many times before, never before has he meant them less.

    “That it may please the Angel to bring back into the way of righteousness all such as have erred, I place myself before you for Discipline.”

    Imogen Herondale smiles.

    Summary

    Jace blinks, peering at the loft in vague stupefaction. “This,” and Alec’s parabatai’s voice sounds like he’s dragging each noise out from his exhausted mind and forcing it out before he can forget what word he just discovered. “Isn’t the Institute?” The final phrase comes out as a question.

    Alec tilts his head in puzzlement, glancing at his brother as if wondering how he could possibly consider that Alec had taken them there instead of here. “No?”

    Alec’s head moves back to level and he narrows his eyes instead. “We said we were going home after patrol.”

    The ‘ergo, we are home now’ wasn’t said, but it was obvious in implication.

    Summary

    ok so i am so angry and annoyed with jace and iz judging and looking down on alec for his every decision, while whining and complaining how THEIR life is horrible, without even realizing that alec's doing it all for them, sacrificing everything for their well-being.

    basically Alec's reaction when he realizes the cup is gone and that almost everyone he knew betrayed him.

    UPDATED with even more indirect Clary-bashing. Sorry Clary, I do like you. But right now, you are one selfish bastard.

    NEW: Many of you have asked for some sort of sequel or different POVs on this, but I don't think I will continue. Partly because it's very difficult to capture the tv show-traits, partly because I don't think a sequel would turn out well. Thank you for your feedback, anyways! :)
