Some head canon ideas for this underrated ship in honor of Lightwood Day.
-Gideon teaches all of the children Spanish, which Sophie loves and appreciates because she was not given the chance to learn another language as a child.
-This also leads to the children picking up Gideon’s habit of swearing in Spanish.
-This Sophie is not so happy about but it brings up fond memories of Gideon giving her her first training lessons and so she lets it slide…most of the time.
-Sophie teaches their girls how to be strong, independent women so that they will never be victims at the hands of greedy men like she was.
-Sophie teaches her girls that it’s ok to be picky when looking for a husband, not just any man will do, because they deserve kind, strong, intelligent men like their father.
-They always sit down for tea and scones on Sunday afternoon which tends to lead Sophie and Gideon down memory lane.
-They then exchange lovely memories of how they met, their courtship, and the early years of their marriage while both teary eyed.
-The children usually roll their eyes at this but secretly hope for the kind of love story their parents have.
-Sophie and Gideon tell the children of their grandfather and all his mistakes. While they do not teach the children to hate him, they use him as an example of what happens when shadowhunters lose their way and sight of their purpose.
-Sophie and Gideon take the children over to the institute every Saturday to spend the day with Will, Tessa, Gabriel and Cecily and all their children. They love being a part of such a big family.
-Gideon and Sophie view Will and Tess and their children as much their family as Gabriel and Cecily.
-Gideon never takes sides when Will and Gabriel are arguing, he instead likes to amuse himself with comments like “You two seem more like brothers than Gabriel and I” which always leads to Will and Gabriel stopping their argument, both embarrassed to be accused as being blood related and not just by marriage.
-This always amuses Gideon further and he reminds them that they argue so much because they are actually very alike. This causes more embarrassed looks and mutters to the contrary.
