    Summary

    “When Alec kneels before you on that dais, Magnus,” Jace keeps going, “he’s telling every person present that it is your judgement, your respect, that he places before all others. In you placing that rune on his neck, Alec is publicly proclaiming that it’s your blessing and your judgement on him and on his reign as Head that gives him the right and the authority to uphold the Covenant.”

    Magnus' throat is too tight to speak, but there’s a distinct shimmer visible in his suddenly unglamoured eyes.

    Summary

    Alec is still standing just to the right of him and Magnus gestures fondly for Alec to join him on the plush leather seat. Alec smiles at him softly, evenly, and Magnus is helpless against returning that smile just as fondly even though he usually keeps himself sharper-edged here at his court.

    And then, keeping his lover’s gaze, Alec drops gracefully to his knees in front of Magnus and Magnus’s breath catches sharply in his throat. Alec, however, just stretches up a single hand and gently rubs a soothing thumb over Magnus’s velvet-clad knee as though in one action he hasn’t just overturned thousands of years of tradition and practice.

    Summary

    Slowly, losing the fight against the trembles shaking his hands, Alec unbuckles the archery guard on his wrist, his breathing quickening as he tries to prepare himself for what he knows is beneath. He feels brittle and fragile, as though the loose guard is the only thing tacking the pieces of himself together.

     
    Alec yanks it off and the breath is punched out of him in a wordless sound of pain and loss at the sight of the blank skin beneath, every trace of Magnus, of their marriage, erased as though it's never been, not even the silver scar from when the runes are removed through divorce remaining.

    _____

    As a true nephilim, Magnus realizes he can bear runes in the time he's without his magic. However, the goal was always to get his magic back.

    Summary

    When Magnus grabs Alec's stele off the bed, he's expecting the faint burn that characterizes every time he touches adamas in some way.

    He doesn't get that.

    Instead, the adamas lights up the purest white, the way it does whenever a nephilim holds it.

    As he stares at it, he decides that he's no longer going to play this game with his father. He's going to take his life back - on his terms.
