Sometimes it comes down to a choice,” Magnus said. “Between saving one person and saving the whole world. I’ve seen it happen, and I’m selfish enough to want the person who loves me to choose me. But Nephilim wil always choose the world. I look at Alec and I feel like Lucifer in Paradise Lost. ‘Abashed the Devil stood, And felt how awful goodness is.’ He meant it in the classical sense. ‘Awful’ as in inspiring awe. And awe is well and good, but it’s poison to love. Love has to be between equals.””He’s just a boy,” said Luke. “Alec–he’s not perfect. And you’re not fallen.” “We’re all fallen,” said Magnus, and he wrapped himself up in his chains and was silent.
