“'You look beautiful,' Sophie promised. Linh always did.”

Sophie to Linh, in Lodestar

Solinh or Lophie is the friendship/romantic pairing of Sophie Foster and Linh Song. As of now, they remain good friends and work very well together. Sophie first heard of Linh when Linh stopped Sophie from burning down Exillium in Book 4: Neverseen. She was known as "The Hydrokinetic" or "The Girl of Many Floods". Sophie first communicates with Linh during an exercise they did in Exillium to practice holding their breath. As Linh struggles to hold her breath, Sophie decides to Inflict positive emotions to keep her calm. After that, Linh and her twin brother, Tam, decide to meet Sophie because they finally trust her. Linh and Sophie become good friends at the end of Neverseen, and Linh joins their friend group along with her brother, Tam.

Moments Edit

Keeper of the Lost Cities: Neverseen Edit

  • Linh puts out the fire that Sophie accidentally starts when she first arrived at Exillium.
  • Sophie notices that Linh is in tears because of the Exillium training on breath holding, so she inflicts waves of calm to ease Linh's panic.
  • When they meet for the first time, Linh raises water to allow them to cross the river. Sophie gasps and says wow, which causes Linh to blush.
  • “‘Hang on, Linh,’ Sophie told her. ‘You can do this.’

‘I can,’ Linh said.” 

Keeper of the Lost Cities: Lodestar Edit

  • "Linh gasped at the heat that shot between her and Sophie."
  • "'I'll help any way I can,' Sophie promised, twining their fingers together and sending a fresh rush of tingly heat through [Linh's] skin."
  • "'You look beautiful,' Sophie promised. Linh always did."
  • "All elves were inherently gorgeous, but Linh was especially striking with her soft pink cheeks and lips contrasted against her dramatic eyes and hair."
  • “’ How’s it going there, by the way?’“ Sophie asked. Linh smiled. ‘It keeps getting better– thanks to you.’“

Keeper of the Lost Cities: Nightfall Edit

  • Sophie describes Linh as someone "who always had an aura of sweetness around her pink-cheeked face." (pg. 142)
  • "Sandor flinched out of the way, not saying a word as Sophie and Linh made their way into the closet."
  • "'How's it going there, by the way?' Sophie asked. Linh smiled. 'It keeps getting better - thanks to you.'"
  • "Sophie and Linh shared a look before they made their way downstairs."
  • "Linh was so sweet and pretty and always doing supercool water tricks."
  • “Linh managed to be serene and feisty with each of her pink-lipped smiles”
  • “It definitely didn’t have to do with the pretty way Linh was blushing” (when you’re jealous you compliment your rival clearly)
  • “’I’ll help any way I can,’ Sophie promised, twining their fingers together and sending a fresh rush of tingly heat through her skin”

Keeper of the Lost Cities: Flashback Edit

  • Sophie feels self-conscious when she first sees Linh after the hospital. She doesn't care about Fitz seeing her.
  • “I can take you to Wylie’s new place,” Linh offered, pulling a pendant out from under her tunic. “Actually, it’d probably be better if we just borrow that crystal,” Sophie admitted. “I don’t know if it’ll be bad to show up at the hive with extra people.” Linh pouted. “But . . . I want to see the baby alicorns.”
  • Linh tries to come up with excuses to see Sophie.
  • “Can I come too? I’m so over battle training. And Tam just left. And . . . okay, I just really really really want to fly with the pretty, sparkly horses!”
  • Linh makes Sophie a present, but not Fitz or Keefe or anyone else except for Tam. (Happy Shadow Thoughts! tunic)
  • "Linh's silver-tipped strands drifted gracefully around her face."
