Josiane Claremont hahah! I laughed at that!

It probably has something to do with fire in the Bible...This is my 10th year in a Catholic School, so I should know...(I'll list the ones I remember off the top of my head)

Old Testament - Moses and the Burning Bush, the Pillar of Salt Story, the column of fire in the night sky to lead the Israelites to freedom...

New Testament - (most prominent) the tongues of fire on Pentecost...

In most of the stories, fire takes on a symbolic meaning of God's power and cleanliness (can't remember the story for the cleanliness though...). Meaning, when Clary stabbed Jace with Michael's sword, the fire PURGED Jace of the evilness of Lilith's rune, purifying him.

At least they will still be together, ya know?
They won't be seperated and they will still be themselves (hopefully, no one will be possessed like Jace). So there will still be romance.

At least I hope..........

Isn't fire to destroy and water to clean the soul?
