❝ our imperfections make us help each other. they make us care for each other. we don’t need backup copies to keep us going. that’s the biggest difference between humans and you, who use your allies like disposable tools! ❞
I have a childhood friends!AU hc in which Will and Nico are 5-yrs-old or something, and Nico’s current thing is pirates. The thing is, Will eventually tells Nico that pirates were actually Very Bad People (his mom told him they were THIEVES). And then Nico pouts and gets all sad and doesn’t talk to Will anymore and the latter panics bc !!! he has to fix this!!! So he goes up to the nearest adult (his teacher) and begs her to tell him about the good part of pirates, just so he can later talk to Nico about that and they can be friends again.
