    Summary

    It never should have happened. That was all Alec could think as he knelt on the floor of the Ops Center and felt the cold metal of the adamas cuffs that closed around his wrists. Even as Aldertree stood there in front of him, smirking down at Alec with that smug superiority that Alec ached to knock off his face, part of Alec couldn’t move beyond stunned.

    He’d known things were getting worse, that the Clave was going too far in their fear to stop Valentine and control everything, but he hadn’t thought they’d go this far.

     

    When Alec finds himself arrested and tried under the crime of treason, he realizes that the Clave isn't going to change. Not unless he forces their hand. Unfortunately for them, he's not afraid to do just that. By any means necessary.

    Summary

    Where Clary doesn't go to Pandemonium that night and doesn't interrupt the mission. Instead, Clary goes home earlier to talk to Jocelyn, things happen as expected, and Clary has a different introduction to the Shadow World.

    Or, how the story might have gone if Clary had met Alec (and Magnus) first. Featuring Clave and Downworlder politics, Lightwood family tension, and a Valentine still bent on his crusade to change the world.

    Things play out differently. Not necessarily in a bad way.

    Summary

    This moment has been a long time coming. Though Alec had never wanted to take it this far, he'd always kept the idea there in the back of his mind. Something that he could do if the need ever proved great enough.

    He was tired of fighting against the Lightwood name. Tired of trying to atone for sins he had never committed. Ever since he’d been old enough to walk Alec had carried the weight of generations on his shoulders. He’d shouldered the responsibility of being the oldest son, the Lightwood heir, the one who was going to – who had to – bring honor to the Lightwood name. Even before he’d known the true depths of their dishonor the weight had still been a heavy one.

    No more. With one swipe of the stele, Alec was going to set his own path forward. One where he hoped he could do enough to make the angel proud.
