Will can’t. He sounds like a dying whale when he tries he can play the lyre as every child of Apollo can but that is the extent of his musical talent.
Annabeth isn’t great. She can carry a tune, but she normally doesn’t care to.
Piper beat boxes. And she does it well. She can sing but after discovering the hard way that charm speaking as powerful as hers carries over she chooses not to.
Leo wails. There’s really no other way to describe it. And he does it whenever he’s working on something. The Hephaestus cabin has invested in earplugs.
Frank is shy about it but has a decent voice. He’s a baritone which surprised pretty much everyone but Hazel loves listening to him sing though most of the time he doesn’t know she’s there or he’d get too embarrassed to do it.
Hazel is a beautiful singer but much like Frank is very shy about it.
Jason caterwauls, and he doesn’t do it well.
Percy sounds like a freaking siren, most likely because he’s related to them. Unlike Pipers charm singing he can’t make people do things but he can make everyone within hearing distance stop whatever they are doing and listen and crowd around him while they are at it. He’s pretty much been banned from singing at the campfire because an Ares boy nearly walked through it to be closer to him when he sang. He’s ok with this because Annabeth doesn’t sing either.
Nico literally has the voice of an angel though it took months to discover this. The only people who know are Will and Lou Ellen who were doing cabin inspections and didn’t knock on the door of the Hades cabin. Nico was wearing Wills iPod singing along to the song Almost Lover by A Fine Frenzy. Neither of them interrupted him until the song was over at which point Lou Ellen started applauding and Will burst into tears. Nico thought Will was upset because he could sing better than his boyfriend and started frantically apologizing but Will explained through sobs that that song always made him cry and he’d never heard a more beautiful version of it. Lou Ellen never stopped teasing them about it. Nico never told Will that that song made him think of what could have been with Percy.
Things that happen after the Bat-family has seen the Lego movie:
They all go see it a second time. Several of them see it a
third time. Jason and Damian have each seen it five times.
Stephanie and Tim painted “Buttmobile” on the back of the Batmobile. The Batwing and the Batsub were given the same treatment. They both agreed that hand-washing every car/ all-terrain vehicle that Batman AND Bruce Wayne owned was a fair price to pay for it.
Jason and Damian will try to one-up each other with incorporating
movie quotes into their daily life. Unfortunately, for everyone around them, this leads to the unironic use of phrases such as:
“I’m blushing super hard under the mask” “No, it’s snake clowns!” and “Woohoo, I’ve been parented!”
Update: “Woohoo, I’ve been parented!” is always accompanied by a refusal to do whatever said parenting referred to.
Oracle is now referred to solely as ‘Puter. Dick falls over
laughing when Bruce accidentally says it on patrol.
They memorize all the lyrics to the song at the beginning of
the movie. The phrase ‘in the darkest night” will result in an eight-part
harmony and impromptu dance party. Even during patrol. Especially during
patrol. Double especially while fighting any number of villains. Tim can’t sing
but he beat-boxes to it.
The password to the Batcomputer was set to: IronManSux. Nobody will confess to it.
Dick has gone around to every camera in Wayne Manor and
whispered “Hello secret camera” to it.
Robin’s cape was coated in yellow glitter. Stephanie claimed
innocence. Cassandra didn’t even try to hide the glitter on her hands.
“Computer, overcompensate.” Is now an official command in
all auto-pilot systems. The Riddler laughed so hard he didn’t even try to stop
them from dismantling his techno-bomb the first time Duke used it in battle.
Bruce Wayne is asked no fewer than nine times on National Television if there is any truth behind the rumor that he and the Dark Knight are in a relationship.
Everyone took turns sliding across the dining room table.
Alfred was not pleased.
Update: Being called Grandpa by all of them restored Alfred’s
Bruce has been called Padre seventy nine times and counting
in the three days since they saw the movie. They have a bet going for who he
calls “hijo” first. Most of the money is on Dick. Stephanie thinks it will be her since she makes a point of calling him Padre twelve times a day. Damian steadfastly refuses to
believe it will be anyone but him.
Update: It’s Jason. He’s in a state of shock for forty minutes
after Bruce ends a lecture with, “So just… stop threatening government officials hijo.”
There’s a post-it on next to the elevator up to the manor that
says “to Batman’s attic.”
Joker sets up an enormous, ridiculously elaborate death trap
that puts all of his previous death traps to shame. Batman is fighting his way
out, but they’re all trapped and it doesn’t look like there’s any way out but
then everything freezes and Joker dramatically lowers down on a moving platform
and makes a big show about the whole “greatest enemy” thing and obsession and being the object of Batman’s hatred and it’s basically a summary of all the movie lines and
Batman just… sighs and shakes his head because of course Joker has seen it too
and what else can he really say at this point his kids are in trouble and he
just looks at Joker and says “I hate you” with as much feeling as he can manage
which is a struggle because he’s just so tired why couldn’t they have made a
lego Flash movie???
the boss baby winning the weekend box office beating ghost in the shell and beauty and the beast is so fucking funny but also this can be read as audiences desperate craving for original content rather than the endless slew of remakes, adaptations, and sequels that we’ve been receiving
Premise: (y/n) is a year older than Mike wheeler, and she’s friends with Nancy Wheeler. The younger boy has a huge crush on the girl, and one night she is sleeping over at Nancy’s.
Warnings: mentions of playboy (rip Hugh)
“Hey nerd boy, what are you and your friends up to?” (Y/n) says with a joyful smile as she leans against the doorframe of the entrance to the basement of the Wheeler household.
“N-nothing.” Mike snaps the magazine that he and his friends had been looking at closed, and snaps his head and eyes up to look at the girl.
“Yeah, nothing (y/n)!” Lucas and Dustin chime in, with wide eyes looking up at (y/n) at the top of the staircase.
She pauses and cocks an eyebrow at the group of four boys and puts a hand on her hip.
“Are you sure…” she says and begins to look suspicious of them.
She’d just come downstairs from Nancy’s room to grab snacks from their pantry, but couldn’t find any, so she decided to ask the boys (who she knew would be in the basement) for some. She honestly didn’t care what they were doing, they were teenage boys for god sakes, and could do what they wanted. But, she loved teasing the younger boys.
She walked down the stairs and smiled innocently, “what’s that?” She asked cheerfully.
“It’s uh-” Lucas starts
“A DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS MAGAZINE!” Mike interupts him and tucks the magazine behind his back.
They other three boys just nod their head at him in agreement.
“Cool… anyways, I came to ask you guys if you had any snacks I could borrow?” She asks
“Oh… yeah sure-” Mike starts to turn around and relax to hand her a bag of pretzels, and she reaches down and snatches the magazine out of his grip.
She smiled wickedly, and dashes up the stairs to the first floor as fast as she can. Behind her, she can hear the boys panicking and yelling.
“Get the mag! Get the mag!” Dustin yells at the others.
(Y/n) giggles and locks herself in the bathroom, and she can hear the boys yelling, running around, and banging on the door.
“What is going on?” Nancy says, and (y/n) can hear her footsteps as she walks downstairs.
“(Y/n)? Where are you? What’s happening?” She asks
“I’m in here!” (Y/n) yells from inside the bathroom.
The boys freeze as Nancy approaches the bathroom and whisper to eachother frantically with wild hand gestures. She raises her eyebrow and lightly knocks on the wall near the bathroom.
“Why are you in the bathroom? What’s with all of this screaming?” She says towards the wall.
“I went to get food, but there wasn’t any so I went to get some from Mike and his friends!” She explains, “but when I went into the basement, the boys all acted suspicious and tried to hide a magazine from me.” (Y/n) says with another fit of giggles.
“What’s the magazine of (y/n)?” Nancy says with a smirk, knowing whatever it is could be used as blackmail against Mike.
Mike interrupts his older sister, “(y/n)! Don’t look in the magazine! Please? I’ll give you all of the candy I’ve been stockpiling for months!”
“And I’ll give you my monthly allowance!” Will chimes in
“Dang… whatever is in this magazine must be super important.” (Y/n) says to herself with her brows knotted together. Throughout the entire endeavor, she has yet to look at what it actaully is.
She glances at the cover, and giggles immediately. “You guys are a bunch of perverts!” She yells
“What?” Asks Nancy, and she glances over at the boys who are still whispering and exchanging frantic looks.
“It’s a fucking PlayBoy magazine!” She yells at Nancy. “What a bunch of little dweebs.” She laughs again.
“HaHa… yep you caught us! Now can we please have the magazine back? Or you can throw it out if you want even!” Says Mike
It’s pretty obvious in his voice, that he’s faking relief. “What else are you hiding?” She mumbles to herself, and begins to flip through the magazine. She laughs and cringes at the nude women, and for a minute she thinks that maybe an innopropraite magazine is all it is. Her breath hitches when she turns to page 15, and five pieces of lose paper flutter out of the magazine.
“What’s this?” She asks herself.
“What’s what?” Asks Nancy
“(Y/n) for the love of god please just don’t look in the magazine!” Lucas and Dustin yell at her.
(Y/n) turns red as she reads the note to herself. The messy handwritting is matched with a couple of random doodles of people punching and dungeons and dragons characters.
On the first page, it says
“Things that we want to accomplish before senior year:”
-have a girlfriend
-beat the high score on Dig Dug at the arcade ”
-buy and fix up my own car
-beat the hell out of Troy and James”
-join the boxing tea
-beat up Troy and James
-bang a chick”
The fifth and final page, was Mike’s
-build my own radio from scratch
-figure out where eleven went
-get (y/n) to date me”
She looks at the page, and to make sure that her brain isn’t playing tricks on herself, she re-reads the sentence at least 5 times. Then, it sets in and (y/n) realizes.
She opens the door to the bathroom, and hand the magazine and pages over to the boys. No words are spoken for a second until Mike starts to apologize.
“Listen (y/n) I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to tell you- or you to find out like that- or for you to even find out- or to-” She cuts him off.
“Hey Mike, look at the page.” She says with a smile. At the bottom of the page below Mike’s list, (y/n) had scribbled her own list.
-save up money enough to go to college
-fix up my car
-date the nerdy wheeler boy”
He glances down at the list, and blinks multiple time before looking at the girl with wide eyes and a blank tongue.
“Tomorrow, 7, the roller rink?” She asks the boy.
He nods and smiles so big she’s afraid his lip might split.
“Did I miss something?” Nancy asks in the background.
