Listen up Punks

If you think Punk is just an aesthetic, get out.
If you think punk is all ripped jeans, rock and roll, and wild hair, please leave.
If you claim to be a punk but make no effort to change society’s standards and challenge the norm outside of your fashion choices, I have a problem with you.
Don’t get me wrong I’m not some elitist asshole who wants to tell you what you can and can’t be, but I will implore you to go look up the history of punk. True punks fight for the oppressed. Punk isn’t just about patches and pins, and it’s certainly not this “I don’t give a fuck” shit I’ve been seeing from some self-proclaimed “punks”.

To be punk is to care enough to say “fuck society for hurting you” to minorities.

Right now, we need the you to really prove how punk you are. If you truly are punk, show some antifascist action.

Sincerely, a frustrated queer punk.

Hcs for Nico, Thalia and Percy as: The Ambitiously Gay and Autistic Trio

  • They came out to each other first, before anyone else, and were all super supportive of each other (obviously)
  • They always point out attractive people to the other and bond over the fact that they all kinda have a thing for blonds
  • They never go to pride in fear of having a meltdown or shut down - Nico can’t stand bright lights, Percy can’t stand loud noise and Thalia can’t stand being stuck outside in the sun all day in the middle of a busy, hot crowd - so they always celebrate it alone in Nico’s cabin
  • Percy and Thalia lowkey judge Nico for his taste in music, but will start dancing and singing along the minute that Born This Way comes on
  • They bond over their gayness and how confuse they are by the world of social rules
  • They always pick up stim toys for each, and Percy literally has a draw filled with them
  • They can always tell when someone’s about to have a meltdown/shutdown and immediately go into ‘protective cousin’ mood, shooing everyone else away and doing what they can to help
  • You will not get away with using ablelist slurs or making homophobic comments. You just won’t.
  • They infodump to each other - Percy about marine life and gardening, Nico about mythomagic and funeral rights, and Thalia about the hunters and punk history - and make an effort to learn about the others’ special interest
  • Nico feels very self-conscious about flapping in front of other people, so always runs to the nearest cabin to do it privately (whether that be his, Percy’s or Thalia’s). Whenever Thalia or Percy see him doing that, they’ll join him and they’ll stim together
  • Thalia doesn’t care at all and will happily chew, or play with the spikes on her jacket while listening to her music, flipping off anyone who gives her a funny look or nasty comment
  • Percy’s way of stimming is more subtle, but he still prefers to stim with someone else (help these boys and their nonexistent self-esteem)
  • All three of them have a case of resting bitch face and monotone voice
  • *someone eats pizza/food that’s meant to be hot, cold* three horrified gasps can be heard
  • Percy and Thalia make sure never to wear bright clothes around Nico and keep their cabins as dark as possible, Nico and Thalia make sure to never play their music too loud/make too much noise, and Percy and Nico make sure that whenever Thalia is in their cabin, it’s at a temperature she’s okay with
  • It’s not surprising for them to go to sleep, and wake up with one or two more people in their room
  • Some people try to give Nico shit for wearing sunglasses all-year around and  Percy with his earmuffs, but they never get away with it. Thalia will kick their ass, if Percy and Nico don’t beat them to it
  • Percy and Thalia make an effort to learn Nico’s routine and to never interrupt it unless it’s completely necessary
  • Every Wednesday after dinner they meet up in Nico’s cabin for a sleepover and mythomagic battle (Nico almost always wins, and whenever he doesn’t, he demands a rematch)
  • “Hey I found this shirt made from your favourite type of material so I picked up like seven of them for you”
  • Sally knows what type of food they all can eat, what temp to keep the house at and has basically claimed Nico and Thalia as her own. So has Paul, and Blue (Percy’s little sister who is also gay and autistic)
  • Nico spends 99% of his time with Blue assuring her that her feelings are valid so she’d hopefully never feel as bad as he did about his sexuality
  • Whenever they go out together (the three of them  + Sally, Paul and Blue) everyone thinks that they’re just one big family, that Percy, Nico and Thalia are siblings, and they never correct anyone
  • Thalia is Blue’s role model, the person she calls when she has her first crush and points out cute girls to whenever they go out somewhere
  • Family bonding time where they make stim toys while listening to some really gay music!
  • They can’t stand going out for dinner, so whenever the seven are getting together they go off on their own and get McDonalds (with Reyna too obviously)
  • Reyna joins the group now and then, being hella gay and autistic herself
  • Thalia would rather die than have a shower, but Percy found a way to manipulate the water so it doesn’t feel like a thousand tiny knives are stabbing her, so she always goes to his cabin to have a shower
  • Percy can’t stand brushing his teeth, and so Thalia and Nico carry an unlimited supply of chewing gum around for him
  • If you want to date one of them you’ll get the interrogation of a lifetime from the other two, no question about it
  • They ask Chiron if they can fit in a talk about autism and lgbt+ stuff in everyone’s daily schedule, and soon form a support group
  • Even though they’re the three most intimidating people on planet earth, the new campers adore them
