Prompt #9 (46) - Warm (Writer's Choice)
"Alec is sitting at the harbor in South Carolina. He has a boat, it’s a small boat with a motor. He’s wearing linen, the sun is setting. He’s happy and you can tell he’s happy because he’s working. He’s setting the boat up and everything like that and he’s going out. You can tell he’s going out to go get some fish. Magnus, Jace and all his friends are there. They’re all alongside the beach and they’re all doing different things. Some of them are getting food ready but it’s clear from what we’re seeing that all the concerns of the Clave and all these things, they’re all gone. Now they can all pursue a human life, not a life devoted to some kind of service that they don’t really believe in or a purpose that’s just there because it’s serving somebody else’s purpose. So, a life that they choose. A life that Alec chooses. It’s warm."
-- Matt Daddario, when asked what his perfect ending scene in the show would be for Alec.

When Alec Lightwood was 20 years old his life was forever changed starting with the loss of his beloved baby brother Max and parents. There was a drunk driver that hit them on the way home from Max’s science fair, Maryse and Robert died on impact. Max lived for almost 10 minutes and suffered agonizing pain before the paramedics came and he died on the way to the hospital. The driver of the other car got off with a broken arm.
Alec, Jace and Izzy were destroyed, Max was the life of the family and he was gone just like that because of the stupidity of another. The only reason Alec survived was because of the love from Izzy and his adopted brother Jace. Alec swore then and there that he would never see anyone he loved die again. So when a man in a black suit came up to him at Max’s funeral asking if he wanted to get revenge and help in protecting his remaining family, he agreed in an instant. He keeps his new lifestyle from his siblings, never wanting them to get dragged into his life. The man who recruited him is a part of a group that called themselves Shadowhunters, that’s all he knows and that’s all he needs to know.
