  • Jason:Alright listen up folks we have a situation here, also from now on we’re using codenames. You may address me as ‘Eagle One’.
  • Reyna’s codename is ‘Been There Done That’.
  • Piper is ‘Currently Doing That’.
  • Annabeth is ‘It Happened Once in a Dream’.
  • Percy’s codename is ‘If I had to pick a Dude’.
  • And Nico is…….. ‘Eagle Two’
  • Nico:Oh thank the gods.
  • Nico teaching Reyna how to play Mythomagic, and at first she’s like “this is the nerdiest thing I have ever done” and then she gets really good because she’s a strategic thinker and hella competitive
  • Nico recruiting Hazel (art skills) and Annabeth (graphic design skills) to make a Mythomagic deck with all Roman names to give Reyna for Christmas
  • Reyna, on advice from Will, literally sitting on Nico’s legs to make him stop trying to get up after a battle
  • Reyna being completely casual about Nico randomly appearing beside her; everyone else is like ?!?! and she’s just like, “Hey.”
  • one time he shadowalks in while she’s practicing alone with her spear and she nearly gores him in surprise; he apologizes profusely (after removing his reflexively drawn sword from her throat) and she asks if he’d do it again because her reflexes were slow
  • Nico taking Reyna back to Puerto Rico to confront her family ghosts, she shouts and cries and afterwards they get icecream
  • Nico showing up at Camp Jupiter like three weeks after BoO ends like, “REYNA, HELP, HOW DO I FUNCTIONING ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIP?” “Why in actual Tartarus are you asking me?” 
  • Reyna overworking herself running Camp Jupiter and Nico shows up and is like, “no, shush, you’re going to sleep now, Frank can run the war games and it’s literally Jason’s job to oversee the building of the new shrines. You’re going to bed.”
  • Nico having a long day and getting scary-ghosty-furious at someone scheming against the alignment of the two camps, and Reyna puts her hand on his not-entirely-solid arm and lends him some of her calm and is like, “shh, Nico, he’s totally not worth the effort of getting angry.”
  • generally just newbie campers being rightly terrified of both of them separately, and then they’re smiling? at each other?? oh gods, the terror didn’t double, it squared
  • a game of Capture the Flag that’s literally everyone at Camp Half-Blood versus Reyna and Nico; the campers put their flag in the middle of a sunny field and 3/4 just take up defensive positions; Nico and Reyna win by a landslide and skeleton army
