"We’re vikings! It’s an occupational hazard!"
To love and kiss, to sweetly hold,
For the dancing and the dreaming.
Through all my sorrows and all nights,
I’ll keep your love inside me.

Lucien Carr “Angel boy”- an angelic, beautiful, bright, privileged and adventurous boy who enjoyed quoting
You desired my attention, but denied my affections.

"I’m still here, and i’m crazy in love with you, please stay"
It’s been five years since the events of the Mortal Instruments when Nephilim stood poised on the brink of oblivion and Emma Carstairs lost her parents. Raised in the Los Angeles Institute, Emma is paired as a parabatai with her best friend, Julian. As Emma hunts those who caused the death of her parents, the trail leads back to those they’ve always been taught to trust. At the same time, Emma is falling in love with Julian — the one person she’s forbidden by Shadowhunter Law to love. Set against the glittering backdrop of present-day Los Angeles, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches from the warlock-run nightclubs of the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica. —The Dark Artifices: Lady Midnight (2015)
