make me chooseanon asked: gabriel & cecily or gideon & sophie (the infernal devices)

“she held his face between her hands as they kissed-he tasted slightly of tea leaves, and his lips were soft and the kiss entirely sweet. Sophie floated in it, in the prism of the moment, feeling safe from all the rest of the world.”

We don’t talk about Sophie/Gideon enough…like when he found out she’d been raped and abused by her past employer he didn’t get too close or try to touch her without warning and she was so careful with him and her feelings and then she realized that she loved him when he got hurt and she didn’t want to lose him. And they’re honestly so pure

  • Sophie: WILLIAM!
  • Tessa: Who’s that?
  • Will: She doesn’t like me!
  • Jessamine: WILLIAM!!
  • Tessa: Who’s that?!
  • Will: She doesn’t like me either!
  • Gabriel: WILLIAM!!!
  • Tessa: WHO’S THAT?

It’s all right to love someone who doesn’t love you back, as long as they’re worth you loving them. As long as they deserve it.

I didn’t know that was how you had been scarred,” he said.
She looked away.
“Now you will say that it is not so ugly or that you do not even see it, or something like that.”
“I see it,” Gideon said in a low voice. “I am not blind, and we are a people of many scars. I see it, but it is not ugly. It is just another beautiful part of the most beautiful girl I have ever seen.

Gideon Lightwood and Sophie Collins

Everyone always goes on about the major ships of CC novels like Clace, Malec, Sizzy, Tessa/Jem and Tessa/Will. But man my favorite couple by far was Gideon and Sophie, I mean I understand why they weren’t able to shine as well compared to Tessa and Will or Tessa and Jem, but I mean their relationship was such a cliche, it was cute. It was a typical meet, a typical courtship that made me so happy to be able to read about. It was just so pure and loving. They just made me so happy. Forever my favorite ship. 

  • Sophie: Gideon what on earth is that?
  • Gideon: it's a box.
  • Sophie: yes, I am aware that it is a box. What is inside it?
  • Gideon: uhhhh... errrr... it's for Gabriel
  • Sophie: if it's another "I'm sorry for making you bake all those scones" gift, you might as well return it now.
  • Gideon: uhhhh...
  • Sophie: it's been thirty years, Gideon. You can stop apologizing, I forgave you the first time.
