Couples Countdown No 1 – Puck & Sean
So finally we reach the end!
My absolutely favourite couple of 2011 has to be Puck and Sean from the wonderful The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. I fell in love with both of them. Then I fell in love with them falling for each other.
Theirs’ is a quiet, restrained falling, but it is so beautiful (and beautifully written), because I was already so invested in the characters small moments had a huge emotional punch. This exchange, for example, reduced me to a small gooey pile of swoon.
“I say, “I will not be your weakness Sean Kendrick.”
Now he looks at me. He says, very softly. “It’s late for that Puck.”
