Charlotte just moved to the New York Institute after living her entire life in Idris. She never expected to nearly immediately fall for Alec Lightwood, and he for her. Reunited with an old friend, gaining a new love, and making new friends proves to be good for Charlotte after her haunting past of watching her family be killed by vampires. But when Valentine arises, things get complicated. Can Charlotte and Alec's relationship survive? Can she and Jace still remain good friends? Can she even trust Clary? And Isabelle, could she really trust her to fight by her side? Question after question answered and formed in this thrilling fanfiction based off of the Shadowhunters TV show. I do not own any of the characters except for Charlotte, and any other minor characters I create throughout the story. The plot belongs to me, but the setting and most characters belong to Cassandra Clare. By the way, this takes place before the events of City of Bones, it'll ease into that around the middle of the book. This fanfiction was approved by CASSANDRA FUCKING CLARE HERSELF Yes, I fucked up in a lot of places. I was only on book 2 when I wrote it, I didn't really know shit. Please stop going through my book and pointing out every little flaw, I plan to go through and fix it but for now it's ruining my self esteem as an author because I can't even write fanfiction correctly.
