Naomi Solace (Part 1 of Will Solace Head Canon)

I haven’t read any headcanons about Will’s relationship with his mother Naomi, or about her life, basically we just know that she is/was an alt-country singer. But we didn’t get any more details about her. So this is my tiny contribution to the fandom!

  • Naomi Solace grew up in a big citric farm in Texas, that also had a bed and breakfast, which belonged to her family for many generations. Since she was little she demonstrated a talent for music, learning to play the guitar at a very young age and for having a beautiful voice.
  • She began performing when she turned 10 years at the bed and breakfast for the costumers. She played both covers of famous songs and also her own music.
  • She was 19 years old while doing a small tour with her band in Texas, when she met Apollo at a bar in Austin. She had just signed a contract with a big Nashville label and her first single was a success, reaching number 4 in the top 25 alt-country charts. They didn’t really have a relationship; it was just a series of very passionate hookups that lasted not longer than a few months, before Apollo had to go. She never resented him though, after all, she was also a free spirit.
  • She found out she was pregnant when she was already 2 months along.
  • She was so scared at first of being a single mom. Her family being very devoted Christians and even though they weren’t closed minded, she knew they wouldn’t take the news very well. She was also scared for her career, she was the opening act for a “very famous country singer” while they were touring the southern states. 
  • She didn’t tell her manager nor her family until she realized she could no longer hid her belly. That day she wrote a song called “It’s raining here in Georgia” about her fears and how she had to tell the truth.
  • Her parents definitely weren’t happy, but supported her.
  • The company was very understanding though, and didn’t cancel her contract. She continued opening for the “very famous country singer” until she was 6 months pregnant. Then moved to Nashville to work on her first album.
  • She went back to her parents’ farm in Texas to rest for her final month of pregnancy. She wrote more than 10 songs that month about her situation. 
  • Will was born on December 21th (I read @cyansonata‘s headcanon that Will was born on this day, the shortest day of the year and the first day of winter and that his mother always told him that it was because the world and her life needed more sunshine, and I loved it!).
  • When she first saw him, she swore he was glowing, but later dismissed it as the medications making her seeing things. She wrote a song called “My little bit of sunshine” the next week that was included on her second album about how happy she was with her baby boy. She never told anybody but Will the real story behind the name. 
  • She named him William after her father, though his name was Wilfred, but now way she was naming her son that! 
  • Will was the cutest baby, with his very big sky blue eyes and blond hair. All her band mates love to carry the cute baby all the time and everywhere she went she had people complimenting her baby.
  • Most of the time she and Will lived in her parents farm. She also had a small house in Nashville where she stayed when she was working on an album.
  • When Will was about to turn 1 year old he became very sick. Doctors didn’t know what was wrong with him. They told her there was a big chance that he might die. 
  • A few days later, while she was watching Will in the hospital, Apollo visited her as an intern. She didn’t recognize him at first because he looked younger than when they were together. He explained who he really was and told her not to worry, that their child would be ok. And that their son was meant to do great things. He also told her about the dangers of being a demigod and that she might need to send Will to a special place for people like him so he could be safe. Before he left, he claimed him and he kissed Will and the baby started glowing (the only time Apollo used a different way of claiming) it was then, when Naomi knew that what she saw when Will was born, did actually happened. Apollo never came back again and Will never really met his father until the events of ToA.
  • She won her first CMA one year later.
  • She noticed that as Will grew older strange things happened around him, most of them good. Like dying plants suddenly became healthy again, then small animals, until people with minor illness told her how they felt better the minute they met Will. Or Will classmates claiming he could heal their small wounds by just touching them. She knew that the most powerful her son became the most he will be in danger and dreaded the day when she finally had to send her son away.
  • She loved sharing her love for music with her son. It seemed that he understood her passion better than anyone. She taught him to play guitar and the piano. They also sang together and even wrote silly songs. When she was on tour she would leave Will with her parents, or some times she would take him to Nashville with her.
  • It all changed when Will turned 6, he had been telling her for weeks about how he saw monsters hiding behind trees. She didn’t want to believe it; she didn’t want to have a reason to be apart from Will. Then one day a monster attacked them in the farm. She hit her head trying to escape and only remembered a bright light when she woke up.
  • She didn’t tell her parents anything about the attack.
  • The next day she contacted the place Apollo told her about.
  • New Years Eve morning she received a letter telling her that someone would come to the farm and pick Will up as soon as possible. 
  • Next day, during dinner she explained Will who his father was and that he could no longer stay with her, as it wouldn’t be safe for him. 
  • Two days later a teenaged girl, who was also a child of Apollo, arrived at her home and explained everything about Camp Half-Blood and how her son would be safe there. That same day, she took Will away.
  • It was very hard for her watching her son leave. Especially when she couldn’t talk about it to anyone. To all the world Naomi Solace’s son was accepted to a very exclusive music academy in New York. 
  • She tried to focus on her career and eventually won two more CMA’s and a Grammy. But she missed her son very much. She didn’t dare to take Will away from camp for very long periods of time. So going on short vacations became their thing, that, and weekly letters to keep updated.
  • Will came out to her when he was about 12 years old. She always suspected her son might be gay, but never forced him to come out. She even read about gay relationships and gay sex education to give him “the talk”, which she did a few weeks later. 
  • Naomi knew her son had a crush on a boy named Nico, because Will wouldn’t stop writing about him. Even if Will didn’t realize it until much later. She felt very sorry for all the misfortune that the boy had to endured. She began sending Nico little gifts, like some clothes in dark colors. 
  • She met Nico when she picked up Will for their Christmas vacations. 

I wrote a lot more than what I originally planned. I feel that the last bit was a little rushed, but I had this on hold since the beginning of June and due school stuff I didn’t have the time to edit it and post it, so I decided to just post it now that I’m free. This is just one of a few headcanons I have for Naomi Solace. I hope y’all like it!

I don’t know,” he covered his face with his hands. “It wasn’t just his fault. I know that. But, like, I told him it was, and now he’s mad at me.” Coming out AU.

anonymous asked:

Is it true that in winter the sun never rises in finland?

Partly. Finland is close to Nothern pole and partly above the Arctic circle. That is why during summer sun is up for a long time and during winter it barely shows up. In south the differences aren’t that big but as you cross the arctic circle the differences can be quite dramatic. There you can experience kaamos (polar night) when sun doesnt rise at all as well as yötön yö (midnight sun).

So a little comparison. Let’s take three places in Finland: Helsinki, Oulu and Utsjoki. Helsinki is in southern Finland, Oulu is kind of in the middle length-wise and Utsjoki is up north. 

On winter solstice (the shortest day of the year), which normally is on December 21th, the sun would

  • get up around 9:30am and go down around 3:15pm in Helsinki, total   5hrs 45min of sunlight 
  • get up around 10:30am and go down around 2:00pm in Oulu, total 3hrs 30min of sunlight
  • wouldn’t get up at all in Utsjoki. 

Then again on summer solstice (around June 21th) the sun would

  • get up around 4:00am and go down around 11:00pm in Helsinki, total 19hrs of sunlight
  • get up around 2:15am and go down around 12:15am in Oulu, total 22hrs of sunlight 
  • wouldn’t go down at all in Utsjoki.

Book 4 Projected Schedules

With Book 4 premiering on October 3rd, and airing every Friday, we can project its schedule, with some factors that might vary. Depending on whether the premiere is one or two episodes, and whether Nick takes any weeks off (the biggest possibility being the day after Thanksgiving), the schedule could change. Here are 5 projected schedules, depending on these factors. The short version is, Book 4 will likely end on December 12th or 19th.

HELLO everyone !! I’m back from my Holidays break with a the first Fic Rec of The Week of the year ! It’s only Larry and idk why, but it’s a pretty good selection If I can say that. And as I was in holidays I’ve got some time so it’s mostly long fics.

Anyway, Happy new Year ! I wish you all the best for this year :)

- hear your voice, in the backseat of my car, by @a-writerwrites : Louis gracelessly dropped the back of his seat so he could slide himself into the backseat, the fit tight and cramped and almost too warm.  He was unbuttoning his pants when he paused for a moment and took in the sight before him.
“Christ.  Look at you.”   Louis stopped and just took in what he was seeing.  He was speechless and a little overwhelmed but very, very ready to see what would happen next.  Louis drives a cab.   Harry needs a ride.

Larry Taxi AU (8k) : OMG. Oh. My. God. Read this, seriously. Obviously it’s smut (a lot)(bottom Louis)(OMG)

- Off The Record , by @pianolouis : Louis is an out of control teen heartthrob, Harry is hired to get him back on track and they both hate each other while they secretly don’t.  “I’m not your personal assistant you know,” Harry says once he gets there and Louis lets him in and he shoves the bag into his hands. “I’m your publicist.”  “I know that,” Louis smiles a devilish grin patting Harry in the middle of his chest as he takes the bag, “but look at you personally assisting me,” he says looking in the bag and pulling out the Cheetos. I also know that my PA turns his phone on silent at night, and clearly, you don’t. Waiting for a booty call or something?” Louis says turning on his heels and scurrying over to his sofa and plopping down. Harry swears he sees a puff of orange dust soar into the air when Louis opens the bag. He’s amazed that couch is as clean as it looks.

Larry Famous!non-famous AU (88k) : Oh God it’s finally completed!! Perfect example of what I love : famous!non-famous and hate to love AU, PR things and closeting, some greats manips, amazing smut (they kind of share that) and coming-out. Elle please, tell me there’s gonna be an epilogue, right?

- To be loved and to be in love, by RealName: First Dates AU. Louis Tomlinson is a thirty-year-old divorcee whose friends have signed him up for the Channel 4 show First Dates. Harry Styles is a twenty-eight-year-old lawyer who has never been in a long-term relationship. They are filmed going on their first date.

Larry TV Reality show AU (34k) : Oh my, it’s amazing. I’m probably gonna have to read again this week tbh. I don’t know what I can say tbh. Oh yes, smut is so great too !! (bottom Harry! ding ding ding!)

- Curtains, Cataclysms, and Constellations, by @thedarkestlarrie : Harry doesn’t understand the boy next door. People don’t normally send surreptitious messages through the form of symbolic emotion and quick glances if they want to be left alone. Right?No. His new neighbour is trying to say something to him.(And if Harry decides to devote his entire summer to figuring him out, it will be a summer well spent.)

Larry High-school AU (30k) : OMG it’s so cute/nice/amazing/funny ! Also smut is so good, with a lot of first times (bottom Louis!) :)

- Lines in the sand aren’t a permanent thing , by Tomlinsontoes : AU where Louis is a professional surfer and Harry is a professional volleyball player and they both have a competition on the same beach and Louis doesn’t think Volleyball is a real sport until he catches this kid in tiny bright yellow shorts spiking a ball over the net and well, he’d really like to hear those groans off the sand.

Larry sports AU (57k) : Surfer!Louis and Volleyball!HArry … Of fucking course I needed to read this. It’s perfect, a hate to friends to lovers AU with a lot of friendzone (Harry is in relationship), great smut (kind of share that) and a perfect fluffy epilogue.

- These Constant Stars Part II , by @stylinsoncity: Another story about punk rockers turned guardian angels. Retold by the punk rocker himself, who sometimes needs saving too.

Larry AU (25k). OMG OMG OMG!!!!!!!!  So this is the Part 2 of one of my fav fic ever (These Constant Stars), and it’s basically the same fic, but with the other point of view. I’m so in love tbh. Also i’m a sucker for Punk!Harry and good smut (kind of share that) and long distance relationship.

- a million roses (bathed in rock n’ roll) , by @tequilila: au. harry sings in smoky dive bars; louis misses his flight home. they go to coney island in the morning.(aka - harry is lana del rey, and louis makes him a star.)

Larry AU (30k) : Holy shit, the daddy kink is not really my thing … but this is an exception. And a great one. So bottom!Harry of course. And I have to say it’s very well written! (I had this fic in my “marked for later” for months, I can’t believe I haven’t read before!!)
