** What's great about this is that for most of the book, Mae and Alan thought Nick would be angry because he was betrayed. Mae thought Nick, who couldn't understand any emotion other than anger, was afraid that he would be betrayed by Alan. Wrong on both counts. Nick simply didn't want to lose his brother. When Alan realized that Nick freaked out because he thought he would leave, he immediately reassured him that's not going to happen. Ever. [[spoiler: Because it was all part of a master plot.]]

-->'''Alan''': I feel as if I made a bargain. When Nick and I were kids. I wanted, so badly, for him to belong enough in the human world. Not to be human, but to be happy, to have people around be safe and for people to love him. If he doesn't have a soul, I thought -- I wanted to give him mine. I feel as I did.
-->'''Sin''': Do you regret it? For Mae?
-->'''Alan''': No. But like I said. There's something wrong with me.

-->'''Nick''': Don't. Alan wouldn't like it.
-->'''Anzu''': Are you stupid? Did they break you? It doesn't matter what Alan likes, or what Alan wants, or whether Alan would think you're a good boy. [[spoiler: He's dead. I killed him.]] That's what they're for. They die. And they never matter.

** and it makes the scene where Nick is having a "how to act human" lesson with Mae and asks her if love is forever actually a bit of a tear-jerker. He's not asking just because she curious, he's asking because he ''thinks Alan might stop loving him''. And Mae tells him, quite truthfully, that love is sometimes forever but not always, like if you're not who the person who loves you wants you to be... Add that to the fact that Alan wants Nick to at least act more human (hence Nick asking Mae to teach him that, in secret, so Alan will think he did it on his own and be happy. Say it with me: awww.) and that Nick is kind of having a hard time with that and he must have obviously thought Alan was going to stop loving him or already had, and then when Mae brought up the magician thing he probably thought it was a way for Alan to leave him without feeling guilty about unleashing a demon.

Added DiffLines:

* In TDL, when Nick and Alan have just finished the tracking spell:
-->'''Alan''': Don't leave me.
-->'''Nick''': I hurt you. Why would you want me to stay?
-->'''Alan''': Oh, God, Nick! Can't you even understand that much?
-->'''Nick''': If I stay, I'll hurt you again. ''["He fixed Alan with his coldest look, the one that made everyone back away. Alan did not back away. He did not even look away. In the end, it was Nick who let his gaze drop."]'' But I won't stay.
* When Mae and Alan are talking about Nick killing magicians:
-->'''Mae''': Do you mean - you're not scared for yourself. He'd never -
-->'''Alan''': I'm not scared of being hurt. I'm scared of what he'll do. He could tear himself apart or tear the world apart, and next to those two choices what happens to me doesn't matter at all.


Added DiffLines:

* And then this gem from TDC, because it's what ''Alan'' wonders about:
-->'''Nick''': You have to stay away from demons. Promise me.
-->'''Alan''': That would be a little tricky, wouldn't it? You sound like the people from the Goblin Market. They think demons are nothing more than weapons that can turn on you. [[spoiler:They say that when I freed you I made a terrible mistake.]]
-->'''Nick''': Well. Maybe you did.

* And then this is echoed by Nick later:
-->'''[[spoiler:Anzu]]''': Why would you want to help me?
-->'''Nick''': For Alan. Because if I had a soul, I would trade it for his.



* This, because it's what Nick agonizes over and wonders about all the time. Doubles as a Tearjerker.

* The end of TDS, when Nick gets Alan back [[spoiler:from DemonicPossession]]:
-->'''Nick''': Don't you ever. Don't you ''ever'' do anything like this to me again.
-->'''Alan''': Okay, Nick. I won't. I promise.
-->'''Nick''': You're just lying. You said you'd never leave. You always lie.
-->'''Alan''': I know. I know. I'm sorry.
-->'''Nick''': I ''missed'' you.

-->'''Anzu''': He left you, you know. Your precious brother. We don't lie. You know I am telling the truth he never did. He left you a thousand times. He used to lie in bed daydreaming about he and his father driving off, getting away from you when you were a nightmare child with black button eyes. He used to not be able to sleep because he was scared of you! He worked with his leg hurting, and he thought about how much easier the struggle would be if he didn't have to feed you and your brother. He knew Mae preferred you, so many girls preferred you, and he resented you for that. He would get in the car and drive away and leave you for ten, fifteen minutes, driving out of the city never to come back, until he turned round. He meant to leave you. You took his life, and you took his chance at love, and he hated you, and he wanted to leave you!
-->'''Nick''': But he didn't leave.
-->'''Anzu''': No. But he wanted to. He should have. If he had, [[spoiler:he'd still be alive, wouldn't he? I didn't kill him. You did. He would have lived, without you.]] He would have had a life, if only he hadn't wasted his time trying to love something that could never love him back.
-->'''Nick''': Who knows? Maybe I did.

* When Nick and Anzu are fighting on the rooftop.
-->'''Anzu''': I'm your brother. Not him!
-->'''Nick''': You're right. This isn't like fighting Alan. He's human and weak and broken, all the things you've said. And Alan would have cheated by now. He would have won. ''[Anzu stops smiling.]'' I know my brother when I see him.
** Made better by the original, deleted scene (released during the TDS launch chat):
-->'''Anzu''': ''[with Nick's sword pointed at [[spoiler:Alan's]] heart]'' Go ahead. It's a body like any other, to be used and thrown aside like trash. I've done this a thousand times before. So have you.
