“I had to,” Alec insists. “I know I hurt him. By the Angel, I know, and I hate it, but I had to. He was so broken, I had to do something, I had to fix it. And I can’t tell him about the deal, because that was part of it. That was one of the conditions. Magnus can’t know.”
“No.” The look Catarina gives him makes Alec’s chest tighten in fear. “Alec, Magnus doesn’t have any memories of you anymore. He has no idea who you are.”
In which Magnus removes his memories of Alec, Alec swallows the pain of Magnus’ obliviousness to their shared past, and the devil is in the details (literally).
(AKA the canon-divergent 3x19 rewrite, because it disappointed me.)
