Simon Snow is an orphaned boy who goes to Watford School of Magicks. In his first year, he meets his best friend Penelope Bunce along with his arch-nemesis and roommate, Basilton Pitch.
Simon eventually suspects that Baz is a vampire, and follows him around the whole fifth year trying to prove it and the "fact" that Baz was constantly plotting against him. So how Simon reacted whenever Baz went missing for the first 6 weeks of school on their last year is totally believable; Talking about Baz basically all day, worrying if he was plotting against him or hurt.
<<"I put my hand on his shoulder to steady him. And then I do something I've never done before - something I probably wouldn't try with anyone I was scared of hurting.
I take some magic that's always trying to get out of me, and I just push it into Baz.
I push a little more magic. I worry that it’s too much, but Baz doesn’t fall or crumple. His shoulder is rock hard and steady under my palm.
I stop pushing and close my eyes, letting Baz draw on my magic as he needs it. I don’t want to overdo it and set him off like a grenade in my hand.
When I open my eyes again, the dragon is a red spot on the sky, and there’s applause ringing out from the ramparts.
“As you were!” Baz shouts, pointing his wand at the school. The crowds immediately start to scatter. Then Baz steps away from my hand and faces me.
He’s looking at me like I’m a complete freak. (Which we both already knew was true.) His right brow is arched so high, it looks like it’s broken free of his eye.
“Why did you help me?” I ask.
“Truce,” Baz says, still alarmed.">>
~Simon's POV while fighting the dragon Edit
Simon tries this again later with Baz after confirming that he couldn't do the same thing with Penelope.
A while later Baz sets the forest on fire and plans to burn with it, but Simon goes back to save him. This was the scene that they confessed their feelings with a kiss before fleeing the burning forest. When they get back to Watford, they start dating. Simon eventually had to leave to take care of the Humdrum and came back with dragon wings, a demon-like tail, and no magic. It was then that he learnt the truth, that The Mage and Lucy were his parents, and ends up giving The Mage all of his magic.
When Baz and Simon left Watford, Simon confessed his feelings, worried Baz wouldn't like him anymore. Baz assures Simon by telling him his love for him will remain forever.
<<“You were the sun, and I was crashing into you. I’d wake up every morning and think, ‘This will end in flames.’”
“I did set your forest on fire—”
“But that wasn’t the end.”
"Baz." His face crumples, in sorrow now - not anger. "I can't keep up with you.I'm a Normal."
"Simon. You have a tail."
"You know what I mean."
"Look." I bring our hands between us and and knock up his chin. “Look at me. I don’t want to have to say this all the time. It’s the sort of thing that’s supposed to go poetically unsaid.…” He meets my eyes. “You’re still Simon Snow. You’re still the hero of this story—”
“This isn’t a story!”
“Everything is a story. And you are the hero. You sacrificed everything for me.”
He looks abashed, ashamed. “I didn’t do it for you, exactly—”
“Fine. For me and the rest of the magickal world.”
“I was just cleaning up my own mess, Baz. Like, no one would call you a hero for cleaning up your own vomit.”
“It was brave. It was brave and selfless and clever. That’s who you are, Simon. And I’m not going to get bored with you.”
He’s still looking in my eyes. Staring me down like he did that dragon, chin tilted and locked.
“I’m not the Chosen One,” he says.
I meet his gaze and sneer. My arm is a steel band around his waist. “I choose you,” I say. “Simon Snow, I choose you.”>>
