I’m bored. I need to post more so I’m going to bore you with my OTP. Yes, there’s one thing AJ and I agree upon and that’s Malec. So She gets to induldge while I look for things.
But I know that not all of you have read the books and some of you have seen the TV show. But there are just so many awesome Alec quotes out there from the last books of the Immortal Instruments I have to share them.
“You never called me back,” he said. “I called you so many times and you never called me back.”
Magnus looked at Alec as if he’d lost his mind. “Your city is under attack,” he said. “The wards have been broken, and the streets are full of demons. And you want to know why I haven’t called you?”
Alec set his jaw in a stubborn line. “I want to know why you haven’t called me back.”
Magnus threw his hands up in the air in a gesture of utter exasperation. Alec noted with interest that when he did it, a few sparks escaped from his
fingertips, like fireflies escaping from a jar. “You’re an idiot.”
“Is that why you haven’t called me? Because I’m an idiot?”
“No.” Magnus strode toward him. “I didn’t call you because I’m tired of you only wanting me around when you need something. I’m tired of watching you be in love with someone else – someone, incidentally, who will never love you back. Not the way I do.”
“You love me?”
“You stupid Nephilim,” Magnus said patiently. “Why else am I here? Why else would I have spent the past few weeks patching up all your moronic friends every time they got hurt? And getting you out of every ridiculous situation you found yourself in? Not to mention helping you win a battle against Valentine. And all completely free of charge!”

That was one of the best scenes in the whole book. Demons all around and they are fighting and Alec asks “Why didn’t you call me back?”
“I did not make a pie,” Alec repeated, gesturing expressively with one hand, “for three reasons. One, because I do not have any pie ingredients. Two, because I don’t actually know how to make a pie.”
He paused, clearly waiting.
Removing his sword and leaning it against the cave wall, Jace said warily, > “And three?”
“Because I am not your bitch,” Alec said, clearly pleased with himself.”

This book is my favorite. Alec clearly comes into his own sarcastic self and he lets it fly often.
“Isabelle snorted. ‘All the boys are gay. In this truck, anyway. Well, not you, Simon.’
‘You noticed’ said Simon.
‘I think of myself as a freewheeling bisexual,’ added Magnus.
‘Please never say those words in front of my parents,’ said Alec. ‘Especially my father.’
‘I thought your parents were okay with you, you know, coming out,’ Simon said, leaning around Isabelle to look at Alec, who was — as he often was — scowling, and pushing his floppy dark hair out of his eyes. Aside from the occasional exchange, Simon had never talked to Alec much. He wasn’t an easy person to get to know. But, Simon admitted to himself, his own recent estrangement from his mother made him more curious about Alec’s answer than he would have been otherwise.
‘My mother seems to have accepted it,’ Alec said. ‘But my father — no, not really. Once he asked me what I thought had turned me gay.’
Simon felt Isabelle tense next to him. ‘Turned you gay?’ She sounded incredulous. ‘Alec, you didn’t tell me that.’
‘I hope you told him you were bitten by a gay spider,’ said Simon.
Magnus snorted; Isabelle looked confused. ‘I’ve read Magnus’s stash of comics,’ said Alec, ‘so I actually know what you’re talking about’ A small smile played around his mouth. ‘So would that give me the proportional gayness of a spider?’
‘Only if it was a really gay spider,’ said Magnus, and he yelled as Alec punched him in the arm. ‘Ow, okay, never mind.”

I’d forgotten about this one. Love it! “So would that give me the proportional gayness of a spider?”
Sorry one last one them I’m out.
“Iz,” Alec said tiredly. “It’s not like it’s one big bad thing. It’s a lot of little invisible things. When Magnus and I were traveling, and I’d call from the road, Dad never asked how he was. When I get up to talk in Clave meetings, no one listens, and I don’t know if that’s because I’m young or if it’s because of something else. I saw Mom talking to a friend about her grandchildren and the second I walked into the room they shut up. Irina Cartwright told me it was a pity no one would ever inherit my blue eyes now.” He shrugged and looked toward Magnus, who took a hand off the wheel for a moment to place it on Alec’s. “It’s not like a stab wound you can protect me from. It’s a million little paper cuts every day.”

A sad one and one that hits really close to home.
