You may have noticed my growing collection of Team Stickers, over on the left hand side. It is pretty much a list of boys that I would marry if they were real *sigh*. Let's just pretend, for now, that they are. You don't do that anyway?
TEAM GABRIEL (The Chemical Gardens):
Gabriel is like the ultimate boy next door. Although his character is from the futuristic Wither by Lauren DeStephano, he is a a boy that could span any time.
I have often said that boys from books ruin girl's perspective of real life boys. I think it creates a ridiculously high standard when every teenage girl wants the incredible Jace Wayland or Will Herondale. Gabriel is a great character to combat this, because he is a believable and relatable character who has flaws but is still a great guy.
I always pictured him as tall but not ridiculously tall, with tan skin and dark, floppy hair.
I have not read the sequel to Wither, Fever, but it is definitely high on my to be read list. I need to find out what happens with him and Rhine, and why this quote was on tumblr, or if it is not talking about Gabriel:
