    Bookmark Notes:

    Alec recognizes demon Magnus coming thru the rift n even though he could follow him, he figures out he's going to Valentine
    Alec gets their latest guess for where Valentine is, Brooklyn, n goes to the most likely ley node in Brooklyn where he finds magnus catching Valentine
    .
    He pressed himself tighter to the demon, feeling the tension in it, in him. "I’m sorry,“ he breathed, clenching his eyes shut. "I’m so sorry. I should have believed you, I should, but I was scared, and, that’s no excuse, but I’m so, I’m so sorry.”
    The demon shifted and Alec watched a claw approach, this one different from the one that had touched Valentine and he let it. Whatever the demon wanted to do to him, he deserved it, a thousand times over. "It’s okay,“ he promised, reaching out to trail his fingers over the smooth weapon. "I know. It’s okay. It’s all my fault.”
    The claw was pressing against his chest and Alec closed his eyes, taking a deep, shuddering breath. "I’m sorry Magnus,“ he whispered. "I’m so sorry. I love you.”
    Except the claw wasn’t pressing into his chest. Instead there was the faintest hint of blue wisping around it and Alec reached out to touch it, unable to keep from smiling at the sight of it.
    /Hello Alexander./
    Another sob broke out of Alec’s throat at the sound of Magnus’ voice in his mind and he curled around the claw, his fingers scrambling to pull it closer.
    .
    “I’ll come back with you. I’m never leaving you again.”
    .
    /I didn’t rip out Valentine’s soul and leave my body intact to remain a demon, Alec. But I don’t know what’s going to happen. I don’t have any human blood left like this. /
    The words were escaping him before he could think the better of it. “Take mine,”
    .
    It felt easier than usual to pull from him, like Alec was pushing the energy at him somehow. He smiled faintly and pressed his face to Alec’s neck. “Alexander.”
    .
    Jace froze, coming around the body of the demon, staring at Alec. Horror crept up his spine at the sight in front of him, Alec cradling Valentine in his arms. “Alec…that’s not Magnus anymore.”
    .
    “Believe me,” Magnus mumbled, opening an eye to look up at Alexander’s parabatai. “Chase, I am very much myself.”
    .
    “Isabelle,” Magnus drawled, forcing his eyes up to her. “I am happy to explain, in exquisite and extensive detail, dying, becoming a demon, killing enough demons to be strong enough to break onto this plane, and coming to take my body back, tomorrow,” he finished.
    .
    "Giving me your blood had an unintended consequence.”
    Alec tensed, looking down at where Magnus was carefully threading their fingers together. “What’s wrong?”
    Magnus hummed and lifted Alec’s hand. “Watch,” he said. He picked up Alec’s seraph dagger and gave one of [Alec's] fingers a small, shallow cut. Blood welled in it, but an instant later, blue sparks were flicking over it and then cut was gone.
    .
    Magnus smiled. “My unintended consequence. Magic often requires equivalency, Alexander. I took something from you. My magic demanded it be given to you in return.”
    “So,” Alec said, looking at his fingertips. “I have some magic?”
    Magnus hummed and closed his eyes. “I’d have to study it closer to see how much, but I suspect you can use just as much as I can, but it would take you significantly more effort.”
    Alec hummed and pressed his face to Magnus’ hair, a faint smile on his face. “You’ll have to teach me.”
    “I can do that,” Magnus said, feeling the small spring of magic inside Alexander dance at the faint touch of his own magic.
    “Do you think it gave me anything else?”
    [.] “Like what?”
    Alec forced himself to shrug, but now the idea was in the back of his mind, he couldn’t stop thinking of it, and he watched blue sparks dance down Magnus’ arms in his excitement.
    Magnus smiled bemusedly. “Something has you excited.”
    “You’re back,” Alec whispered, kissing Magnus’ temple. “You’re home, and I think this magic did more than give me some of your abilities.”
    At once Magnus’ eyes went wide and he jerked back, staring at Alexander in horror as he realized what he was inferring. “Oh no,” he whispered. “Oh, Alexander, I promise-”
    .
    “You might regret it,” Magnus muttered, sighing, guilt choking him. He’d certainly never meant for that to happen.
    Alec hummed and shook his head, reaching out to cup Magnus’ jaw and tilt his head so he could kiss him, soft, gentle and intent. “Having lost you once, Magnus? I can say with certainty, I never want to lose you again. Not ever, and I would never want you to go through what I did.”
