“His eyes locked onto hers, refusing to let her look away. And when she swallowed, it was so loud, she was sure the entire world heard it."

"Or," he said. "We could skip the talking."

"And do what?" she asked, hating her voice for cracking.

"Any ideas?"

He was so close now, she could feel his breath warming her cheeks.

He leaned a tiny bit closer and someone cleared his throat.”

—Narration, in Book 5: Lodestar - Page 667

Sophitz/Fitzphie is the ship name between Sophie Elizabeth Foster and Fitzroy Avery Vacker. Beginning from

the second they met, Sophie had a crush on him. Her heart always flutters when she sees him. These feelings cause her to blush and her heart to flutter when she is around him. The two also hold hands often, usually for Cognate training or moral support. As the books went on, Sophie's heart flutters less as she was around Fitz. However, this doesn't mean that she did not grow closer to him, only that she's more used to his frequent good looks and "movie star" smiles.

Throughout the series, Sophie and Fitz have a bond that becomes stronger and stronger, helping them grow as both cognates and great friends. For their cognate training, they have to reveal all of their secrets, which makes their relationship even more intimate. One of the reasons people think that Sophie and Fitz fit so well together is because they both know pain, so they comfort each other in troubling times. They trust each other more than anyone and understand their minds completely. They are always there for moral support, often crying or laughing together.

Sophie and Fitz find each other attractive, and Fitz has called Sophie pretty or complimented her several times. They share many romantic moments (listed below) and their feelings have grown more special over the past few books.

Not only are they there to cry on each other's shoulders, but they also bring joy to the other's life. In Lodestar, Sophie gives Fitz his favorite dessert for a midterms gift, and he "smiled his first real smile in weeks."

In Lodestar and Neverseen, it was revealed that Fitz has feelings for Sophie. In the first book, he originally said that he saw Sophie as a little sister. Fitz was the first elf Sophie ever met, and they supported each other through nearly all of the books published. Fitz is also very protective of her and is constantly concerned about her safety. At the end of Lodestar, Fitz was about to kiss her, but Keefe interrupted. In Nightfall, Fitz implied that he wanted her to register for the matchmaking and constantly baked treats for her. He also became very worried about her and came to check on her almost every night. Although Fitz has already registered for matchmaking, and Sophie has not, which means that unless Sophie registers, which she doesn't know if she will do or not, they may not end up together.

Fitzroy means "(Fitz) son of the king and (Roy) seeker of wisdom" and Sophie means "wisdom," "wise," and "pretty." There is a good chance that it means that, in a way, Fitz is seeking Sophie. As Shannon Messenger is known for naming characters for specific reasons, it is rumored that Mrs. Messenger meant that to be, but it is unknown at the moment.
