Alec was off in the bedroom as I heard Max starting to stir. I went in to start getting the little blue man ready for his day. I assumed he'd be going to the Institute with his grandparents but I really had no clue. He squirmed as I pulled clothes on to him and changed [...]
We stopped by the Institute and picked up Max. I waited outside the run down cathedral as I didn't really want to run into Alec's parents. Magnus came out carrying a few books and Alec the little boy wearing his favorite glamour. I grinned as Alec played with his son as he carried him. I [...]
The music flowed through me keeping the best of the depression away. I was grateful for the distraction when a woman sat down next to me despite the look she was giving me. It wasn't friendly, but it wasn't aggressive either. She leaned over and spoke loudly. "What do you think you are doing?" I [...]
Isabelle nearly dragged me through the crowded streets and subways of New York City. It wasn't until I recognized some stares that I realized all five of the others were hidden from view. I looked like I was talking to myself. I veiled myself and I heard Isabelle gasp. I grinned and released it, "I [...]
Clary muttered to herself as she translated the Latin. She didn't sound like she had found anything important either. I pushed the books away. "This is going to take forever." I whined. The door burst open and the nerd that was Simon came in waving shreiking, "We gotta go Clary, there is another attack and it's in progress."
I did only a little wandering before the sounds of fighting drew me towards the training room I'd passed earlier. I stood below the platform and watched Jace and a few other's I hadn't met yet sparring with staffs. Nothing glowed like when I had seen them fighting before. They moved quickly but not faster [...]
Alec was finishing up getting the baby ready, I wondered how that worked. The boy was blue and it wasn't something you could hide, but Magnus stepped into the nursery bleary eyed and waved his hand over his son with affection and the child's appearance flickered. I stood outside the nursery watching them while I waited for Alec to finish up. Magnus smiled with sparkling eyes still undone from sleep. Golden-green cat eyes flashed quickly before he covered them up. I smiled, "I still saw. I'm not going to judge."
The lunar cycle is important for all were creatures. As a Venatori we are taught that weres are have a three day period around every full moon that fledgling were's first shift. This shift is usually forced and if out of control of an Alpha always dangerous. Were culture dictates that the Alpha of the [...]
I wasn't going to sleep, but I made my way to the offered bedroom. I was pretty certain they wanted alone time. And I completely understood that. The room was still extravagant in comparison to what I was used to myself. The curtains on the windows were probably more expensive than anything I owned. Every [...]
Looking through a kaleidoscope as a child was always fun until I started seeing the same thing in real life around everyone I knew. Humans can sometimes see what they call an Aura. It's a series of colors and images that define a person. They say it's how a person is feeling - some can tell the past and future from them, but mostly it reflects the person's current situation.
