“But Heaven will not help you; you know that as well as I. That is why men summon demons and not angels, is it not?”
“Okay. I’ve got a good one.” Simon stroked Isabelle’s hair, feeling her lashes flutter against his neck as she closed her eyes. “A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…”
“Of course, not thinking about the ex-boyfriend who had broken your heart and turned you into a werewolf was a lot easier when he wasn’t standing right in front of you, wearing a green shirt that hugged his leanly muscled body in all the right places and brought out the hazel color of his eyes.”
“The Fair Folk are an old people; we do not make hasty decisions but first wait to see in what direction the wind blows.”
“You know he doesn’t remember any of it, right? Did he show you a good time, at least? Because I would have.” She tasted bile in her throat. “You’re my brother.” “Those words don’t mean anything where we’re concerned. We aren’t human.”
“There are worse things than dying,” he said. “And I will do them all to you, little sister, once you’ve drunk from the Cup. And you will like it.”
“You won’t be my friend.” “I won’t be just your friend. I love you, Maia. I’m in love with you. I always have been. I always will be. Just being your friend would kill me.”

“There are some people — people the universe seems to have singled out for special destinies. Special favors and special torments. God knows we’re all drawn toward what’s beautiful and broken; I have been, but some people cannot be fixed. Or if they can be, it’s only by love and sacrifice so great it destroys the giver.”
“How was the Seelie Queen?”
“Same as usual.”
“Raging bitch, then?”
“Speaking of hope, did you see that shot Alec got off with his bow? That's my boyfriend.”
“I don’t care. He’d do it for me. Tell me he wouldn’t. If I were missing—”
“He’d burn the whole world down till he could dig you out of the ashes.”
She turned and looked at him. “Ducks?”
A smile tugged the edge of his mouth. “I hate ducks. Don’t know why. I just always have.”
“Kill me, little sister.”
Jordan: Did Luke say yes to letting them use his farm?Honestly, the only good thing about City of Lost Souls was Isabelle (and all The Infernal Devices references). She dragged all their asses and told everyone straight up what everyone needed to hear. Bravo, Isabelle. She's twice the person Clary is or ever will be. And Simon and Isabelle? Let's just say that Clace doesn't even have an ounce of their chemistry. Even Sebastian and Clary have more chemistry than Clace will ever have and this relationship can't even happen!

Maia: Wait, haven't you noticed that every time we see each other we're only making out or having sex? Maybe we should talk.
Jordan: Okay... Well what do you want to talk about?
*CUE MAKING OUT*
