yo, I bet Reyna definitely told Nico about Percy turning into a guinea pig on Circe’s Island and that was the first time she ever heard him laugh so hard.
It is borderline shameful how loud I just laughed.
I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING
Does this count as a payback for a payback?
Please accept this small token of my appreciation. No, I insist.
I think you broke me(ಥ_ಥ)
I did this thing… I have no regrets…
He regretted this. He regretted this with more passion than he regretted telling Jason the first time. Because now it wasn’t just embarrassing. It was annoying. Gods, it was so annoying. He was ready to kill them both and reap the consequences of Annabeth and Piper’s wrath.
Naturally, he did it to himself. He started this whole mess.
For some reason, he got it in his head to tell Percy. He really was gonna, too. He spent hours and hours, working every angle around in his head, every wording, every nuance. He was tired of Jason being the proverbial monkey on his back, asking him at every turn to just trust people and to open up and be friends, man.
So. He set out to tell Percy.
He lost his nerve halfway through his confession, those green eyes hypnotic, imploring him as he stumbled over the mantra of adjectives and nouns he so diligently picked out from the plethora of languages at his disposal.
So what did Jackson end up hearing? Something along the lines of; “There’s this… guy I like…” and Percy, idiot that he could be, blurted out; “Guy? Wait… what? Oh…”
And that’s when Nico lost it. Done. Stick a fork in him.
He’d turned to walk away, mumbling and cursing in Italian and Percy caught up to him and slung an arm over his shoulder and asked, “So… who’s the lucky guy, then?”
Nico had brushed him off, feeling like he’d swallowed Greek Fire and it was making his insides ill, “Nothing. Nevermind. Forget I said anything.”
“Well, now I gotta know! Does he know? Have you told him yet? Have you told anyone else? Who is it?” it had gone on like that for days. Days. Not only did he already have Jason barking at him from one end, but now he had Percy too. It had been a nightmare, made only worse when Nico blurted out in a fit of frustration;
“It’s Jason, alright? Leave it, will you?”
He instantly wished he could pluck the words out from the space where they hung as Jackson just stared at him. Grab them back before the Seaweed Brain could process them correctly. It had been a foolish chose, a poorly executed battle strategy. But as soon as Percy’s face lit right up, Nico groaned and dropped his head in his hands. Awful. Just freakin’ awful. Could it possibly get worse?
Yes. Yes it could. He shouldn’t have even thought it couldn’t because the Fates must be conspiring to prove him wrong. Again.
It was in the looks that Jason gave him, a thumbs up here and there when Nico happened to be talking to Percy. The nudges that Percy would give him when he caught Jason looking over. Jason and Nico alone on the deck, just talking and Percy interrupting with a sly nod and a drawled, “Sooo, whatcha talking about over here?” and the way Jason would grin and tip his chin at Percy and answer, “Oh, you know.”
Percy was trying to set him up with Jason and Jason was trying to set him up with Percy and neither of them had any idea how messed up that was. Even more messed up that neither of them knew.
He dreaded the two of them alone in a room. Dreaded what they would talk about. Even more uncomfortable was Nico in the room with them, knowing it was his fault and he screwed this up and had no idea how to backtrack and fix it.
I swear the PJO and HOO fandom has so much talented artists that we could have our own animated show if everyone just collaborated with everyone
We could have our own animated show if eVERYONE JUST COLLABORATED WITH EVERYONE
