okay so this pan stitch was DIFFICULT AF because not only did the camera pan in to the palace, but as you can see, it TILTED, and i had to eyeball the whole thing. first version is what it looks like in the dream/flashback at the beginning of ep 1, second version is with some paint dot net jiggery pokery to make it clearer and cleaner and sharper and whatever. but this is, in fact, where serenity was running to find endymion on earth. in the lower right corner you can see a sort of gazebo shrine thing surrounded by pillars, which also bears some resemblance to the Elysian architecture in Classic in the SuperS arc, corresponding (thankfully, somewhat, at least in that little piece) to some of the architecture in the manga. there are pieces of a lot of things in there. i’ll probably end up making a reference post for all the things that i think are supposed to be either Elysion or the Golden Kingdom at some point.  

EDIT: I really like what they did combining Roman countryside architecture, Classical Greek architecture, and low medieval European architecture there.

You Are Watching: GHOST KING

“Oh my god did you watch the new episode of Ghost King?”

“Yes!! It was so scary! I nearly fainted!”

“Oh please that shit is fake and you know it!”

“He shoots the episodes live Damian! How could it possibly be fake?”

“I wonder where he’ll go explore next? Maybe that old house up on Simpkins Drive?”

This, among other things, was a common topic that floated through the halls, in every classroom, and the lunch hall in Demigod High School. Odd name, I know. At first it was just Half Blood High School, in close proximity with Jupiter High School , but after resolving a small (not small at all) fued the two schools merged together.

Anyways. The YouTuber known as xXxGHOSTKINGxXx was something short of a hot commodity. He had millions of suscribers, close to a billion actually, he would go around his town and sometimes other cities if he could to explore supposedly haunted establishments, kinda like Ghost Adventures, he always wore a large sweater that hid his frame, but it also had a hood that you could zip up to reveal the skull design. Which is how he always wore it, along with matching skeleton hand gloves with the fingers cut off. Besides the white skeleton design on the sweater, he wore all black. And he always had on a voice modifier so no one could actually hear his voice.

The myserty of who he was, was part of his appeal. There was also the fact he claimed to be a medium, a very powerful and sensitive medium. He was like a spirit magnet wherever he went.

So yeah, he was well known.

“Hey, they’re talking about you.” Jason whispered to his friend beside him who had his black worn out boots resting on his cluttered desk, tilted back in his chair with his arms crossed and eyes closed as his chin rested on his chest.

He opened one eye to peak at the boy whispering to him and let out a deep sigh. “I know, I hear them, Jason, I’m not deaf.” He grumbled out before yawning into his hand.

Jason smiled knowing his friend’s tone was not filled with real agitation, he was just tired from a night of ghost hunting.

“At least lunch is after this class.”

The dark haired boy nodded slowly trying to stay awake, but when you’re up till 3 A.M. in an abandoned hospital getting proof of ghosts existence, well it wasn’t easy to say the least.

“Hey Neeks!” A familiar (annoying) voice pulled him from his almost sleep.

Neeks, aka Nico, once again opened his eyes and huffed out in annoyance. “Don’t call me that Jackson.”

Percy Jackson, Captain of the swim team, everyone’s friend, and hot as hell, stood before Nico in all his gorgeous annoying glory. That was a friendship many questioned, so was the friendship between Mr. Golden Boy himself, Jason Grace, but those facts are beside the matter.

“Always a ray of sunshine.”

“Want do you want Percy?”

“Did you watch the new episode of Ghost King last night?”

“Of course I did, why do you think I’m so tired?”

“It was so awesome!”

And there was no stopping Percy from blabbering on and on and on now.

Yes Nico was the Ghost King, but very few people actually knew this. Percy was not one of them. Who did know was his family, Jason and his girlfriend Piper, and Nico’s best friend Reyna. He preferred to keep it a secret, he was never one for wanting attention. He was the one in the back of the classroom hoping to blend in with the shadows which he kinda did with all the black he wore.

But hearing how so many people liked him, liked what he did, well, he would be lying if he said he wasn’t a little bit proud or happy.

“Who’s the Ghost King?” A new voice asked. A voice Nico generally tried to avoid, not because he hated the person the voice belonged to but because he was crushing on the person, had been for the longest time, ever since he transferred to the school last month.

Percy turned to gape at Will Solace, Sunshine boy extraordinaire.

“You’ve never heard of the Ghost King!?”

“How could I not? He’s talked about almost everywhere. But I mean I’ve never watched his videos. I like to go to bed at reasonable hours.”

“Dork.” Nico mumbled out with a soft chuckle, but immediately stopped when blue eyes locked on him and shot him a playful glare.

“Call me what you will, di Angelo, but a healthy sleep schedule is vital for you. And yes, you especially. You never sleep!”

“I sleep.”

“Oh please.”

“I do!”

Percy of course interrupted their banter in favor of whipping out his phone and pulling Will into their small circle of people. Really if the teacher was here, Nico was sure he wouldn’t have been able to get the attention of the class back at all.

“Here this is the first episode. Educate yourself child!” Percy declared as he handed Will one earphone as he slipped the other into his ear and pressed play.

“Percy. Lunch is in 10 minutes. That video is 30 minutes long. You guys won’t finish.” Jason tried to reason as he put his stuff into his backpack, and doing the same for Nico. As if Nico couldn’t do it himself, but Jason had this thing about getting out of the classroom first so he always packed his and Nico’s stuff so they could get out of whatever class they had together efficiently.

Percy paused the video with a small whine from Will, that definitely didn’t make Nico blush. “Fair point Grace! How about you eat lunch with us Will? Then I could show you more videos!”

Will smiled and nodded. “Sounds good.”

Oh Nico was going to kill Percy.

anonymous asked:

What are some of your favourite quotes in Old Norse and/or Icelandic?

Sæll (eða sæl), vinur,
(Hello, friend,)

Great question! Here are my three particular favorites:


First, the quote that I try my best to live my life by:

Hávamál, stanza 26, line 1 
(from GKS 2365 4to 3v, line 20):

“Ósnotr maðr þykkist allt vita.”
An unwise man thinks he knows all.

I find this quote of advice to be very important, especially for those actively seeking knowledge on a daily basis. Yet, it is important for everyone to understand, because the world is far too complex for a single person to know everything.


Next up is one of the most powerful statements I have read so far in a saga, partly because I feel that the author’s own words are reaching out to the reader through Njáll Þorgeirsson in this moment:

Brennu-Njáls saga, Njáll Þorgeirsson, chapter 70
(from Möðruvallabók, AM 132 fol. 25v, lines 29-30b):

“…með lögum skal land vart byggja en ólögum eyða.”
…with law our land shall rise, but it will be destroyed with lawlessness.


Lastly, there is the very emotional quote from Guðrún Ósvifsdóttir, which I recently posted about:

Laxdæla saga, Guðrún Ósvifsðóttir, chapter 78
(from Möðruvallabók, AM 132 fol. 194v, lines 32-33b):

“Þeim var ek verst er ek unna mest.”
I was the worst to the one whom I loved the most.

Not only do I find it to be deeply emotional and realistic, but I find it to be a glimpse into the genius and richness of the literary tradition seen in Iceland during this time.


I have a few others, but those are my absolute favorites at the moment. This one also comes pretty close, though, but context does help with its impact:

Brennu-Njáls saga, Höskuldur Hvítanesgoði, chapter 111:
(from Möðruvallabók, AM 132 fol. 39v, line 2a):

“Guð hjálpi mér en fyrirgefi yðr.”
May God help me and forgive you.


Anyway, thanks for asking! I quite enjoyed thinking about what my favorite quotes were so far, and I do hope others enjoy some of them as well!

Með vinsemd og virðingu,
(With friendliness and respect,)
Fjörn

i swear i wasnt gonna say anything but i just woke up from a nap and saw that this happened

this is funny because the post they replied to was this

which i made to make fun of/criticize them for their original comment on sierra’s original post

and the best part is that in the original post @bullrandleman in no way shape or form said “band of brothers should have been about women” what she said is right there like come on

@onuki can u believe

You Are Watching: GHOST KING (part 18)

“Okay. Start at the beginning.” Reyna started in a surprisingly steady voice as her, Nico, and Jason walked to their next classes, which were all near each other and a bit far away so they had time to talk about Nico’s confession.

The Italian had his eyes glued to the floor, his ears, neck, and face were completely red, and he was pouting. He looked like an angry tomato. At least Jason thought so. “It was at lunch…..and uh,….well we…..I gave him the cookies I made for him…….and well……I confessed…or he confessed…..honestly it’s all a blur right now……..and then we kissed…….there was some talking after that…..and uh….more…..k-kissing…definitely some cuddling….” Nico mumbled, and if possible his blush darkened significantly with each word he stammered out.

Reyna’s eyes widened as well as Jason’s, but then her eyes narrowed in suspicion. “What did you talk about Nico?”

And Jason knew for sure him and Reyna both caught the gulp and how Nico seemed to tense.

“That’s…..can we talk about that after school?” The dark haired teen declared. Now looking more serious, his blush even died down.

“Was it something bad?” Jason asked cautiously as he placed a comforting albeit protective hand on the smaller teen’s shoulder. It felt so small and thin beneath his hand.

Reyna crossed her arms in that intimidating way but Jason and Nico both knew it was her protective stance, specifically when it came to Nico.

Nico didn’t even flinch under their gazes, didn’t shrink away like most would, but it’s not like either of them expected him to. Nico di Angelo could out stubborn a bull if he ever wanted to. “I’m not going to lie….at first I thought it was but, I… I’m certain it’s not now…just that it might complicate things….important things that we will discuss at my house after school. Persephone is going to make that weird organic macaroni again so..uh be prepared and bring extra spices? But yeah we’ll talk about it then.” Nico concluded as he walked away from the shivering Juniors he called friends and walked into his class.

The two stood there absorbing what he said, mainly about what he wanted to talk about but also when he mentioned Persephone cooking. That made them shudder.

“I’ll bring garlic salt like last time if you bring the cayane pepper again.” Jason suggested to Reyna who merely nodded as her response and they both went to their classes.

____________________

“Okay I want details and I want them now!” Lou declared as her and Will waved goodbye to Cecil who also demanded to know the gossip after school.

Will snapped the bracelet he was wearing over and over again. He almost always had to do something with his hands, whether he be nervous or just bored. This was out of nervousness.

“Like I said. We kissed, and we’re dating. Well gonna date. I wanna take him out a couple of times before we make it official.”

Lou rolled her eyes and snorted. “What, are you gonna ask his dad for permission to date him?”

When she received no reply, Lou turned to look at her blond friend who was an impressive shade of red and quit messing with his bracelet.

“Oh.” She breathed out. “You’re really gonna do that?”

Will gulped and laughed sheepishly as he nodded. “Too cheesy? I wanted to do it because Nico said his dad is pretty old fashioned about stuff, like technology mainly, like sure he has a Mac and an IPhone and stuff and he can work them, but he is cruddy at using social media. Like seriously any kind of social media. He called Tumblr, “Tumble,” and Twitter, “Twattar.” Oh God and Facebook became BookFace or Book of Faces. When Nico was helping him make a Facebook along with his sisters, Hades asked him, no joke, “What would I do with a book full of faces? Do I know the faces? What if I don’t know the faces Nico?” I’m not kidding. And I just thought that he would appreciate me asking for Nico’s hand…….not like MARRIAGE!!! We’re too young. Oh goodness we are sooooo too young for that I mean in dating. Hand in dating. Yeeaaahhhhhhhhh.“

Will rambled on and on. Seriously, it was like the boy suffered from word vomit when he over thought or was nervous. It was kinda cute, like now. Lou couldn’t help but laugh, which made Will stop rambling and pout.

“Are you laughing at me Ms. Ellen?”

“Of course not Mr. Solace, I was laughing at….well yeah you but not because of what you were saying. Because you are just too darn cute!” She replied while she pinched Will’s cheeks and cooed.

The blond swatted her hands away and pouted once more as he rubbed his cheeks. That hurt!

“Soooo….it is a good idea?”

“I think he would appreciate it, I think Nico would as well. He’s kinda old fashioned too. Somewhat. I mean he has an old record player, isn’t that crazy? And he doesn’t have an iPod! He has one of those CD players that you clip to your jeans, also a Walkman like who has those anymore?”

“I think it’s cute. He also has an original game boy, game boy color- a pink one, a dreamcast, a GameCube, a Nintendo 64 and all kinds of old gaming systems it’s wild.”

“So what you’re saying is his house is a retro gold mine.”

Will chuckled and nodded. “Basically.”

“Oh hey! Are you going to go to the Stolls party this weekend? I heard it’s going to top the last one.” Lou excitedly explained.

“I heard that one was really crazy, but I don’t know. I’m not really the partying type, Lou, you know that. Also does Reyna know? I’m sure she would be pissed if she knew.”

Lou waved her hand in a dismissive manner. “Don’t worry, she has no idea. Apparently she is hanging out at Nico’s. I guess it’s like their monthly movie night or something.”

Or something. Will thought. It probably was to help out with the whole Ghost King thing, which honestly Will was still not over. Or perhaps it really was a movie night. He really didn’t know.

“Dude you should totally come to the party. I heard they hired Leo’s cousin who is a professional fire-breathing. It’s going to be lit!”

Will groaned. “Please never say that again.”

Lou smirked devilishly. “What lit? It’s going to be so lit! Like I don’t think anything could be as lit and this lit party!” She mocked with wild hand gestures.

Will continuely made faces and groans as she kept talking until he dissolved into giggles. “I’ll consider it if you stop saying lit.”

“Yes!”

“That doesn’t mean I’m going to go!”

“It practically does, Solace.”

“You’re impossible.”

“Awww I love you too!”

Why did Will get the feeling that the party was a bad idea?

(( beta read by @honestoafault ))


Nico felt as though he was in a daze for the rest of the day. Not only did Will reciprocate his feelings, but he also new he was Ghost King…..and he had told the Italian that he was essentially falling in love with him or could fall in love with him. Same difference. Needless to say, he hardly paid attention in his classes and his friends of course noticed.

Well mainly Reyna and Jason. They had asked him what was wrong to which he replied dreamily, “Absolutely nothing.”

Apparently it was so out of character for him because Reyna automatically assumed he had been given drugs or something. Jason seriously asked if he accepted something to eat, like a brownie, from someone he did not know.

That had made him laugh. Like hard.

“Ummmm no. I can definitely say I have not eaten something from someone I do not know, nor did I take drugs. Bianca would kick my ass if I did. So would Hazel…..so would my dad….and Sephony (persephone) too…..and you two…..I’m pretty sure Annabeth would as well…..actually just all of you, everyone I know. Wow, now that’s an eye opener.” The dark haired boy rambled out as he played with his pencil, obviously not doing his work like Jason and Reyna, who might I add were already done. Nerds.

Reyna crossed her arms which made her flex her arm muscles, which by the way was very intimidating. It was rumored that Reyna could make any man or woman confess all their sins by just crossing her arms and looking at them. It was one of Nico’s favorite rumors actually because he was pretty sure it could be true.

“You’re rambling.” She stated.

“I’m not rambling.” He defended as he too crossed his arms.

Jason who was quite literally between them kept swiveling in his chair so he could look from Reyna to Nico and from Nico to Reyna.

“Di Angelo.” Reyna scolded, sounding very much like a disappointed mother.

Nico couldn’t help but give her a sheepish smile. “Okay so maybe I was rambling, but it’s for a good cause?”

“And what would that be?” Jason asked, his attention caught yet again.

“Ummm…..well I had wanted to tell Hazel and Bianca first but….I uh,…. kissed Will.” Nico admitted and with each word his blush got darker and darker until he felt his whole body flush.

“What!?” Reyna and Jason shouted simultaneously. To which they got a rather rude, ‘Shhh’ from the teacher.

_______________________

Okay here’s the thing about Will, the guy is always humming or singing a tune whenever you’re around. He always does it.

But at the moment he was humming. He wasn’t singing. He was just sitting there with a dazed look. He wasn’t even paying attention to the health education teacher! He always paid attention in health!

But here he was just sitting there with his face in his hands, a zoned out look on his face, with a soft smile tugging on his lips. Also there was the sighing.

The goddamn sighing. Lou was about ready to punch him just so he would stop the sighing. But she was also worried about him.

“I think he’s finally lost his mind.” Cecil commented as he balanced yet another object on Will’s head.

First he had just placed his textbook and notebook there to see if Will would react, but when he didn’t he took it as a personal challenge to stack as many things as he could before Will or their teacher noticed.

Right now he was at three books, a binder, two water bottles with a ruler balancing between them his phone in the middle of that ruler and an empty Gatorade bottle on top of his phone. It was actually pretty impressive.

“I think you’re right.” Lou mused as she waved a hand in front of Will’s glazed over eyes and promptly passed Cecil a pen to add to the ridiculous pile of things on Will’s head. Cecil grinned at her in thanks and somehow got the bed to stay in one of the holes in the ruler.

“At least he looks somewhat happy. I mean he’s smiling at least.” Cecil commented as he somehow perfectly balanced a marker standing up on the empty Gatorade bottle.

Lou snorted, “ I think it has something to do with Nico.”

At the mention of the Italian’s name, Will sighed yet again but seemed to come back to the real world as he sat up straight. Causing the tower of stuff on his head to some crashing down around him. Cecil cursed as he narrowly saved his phone from smashing into the ground.

All the things falling around him and the noises of them hitting his desk or the floor seemed to snap Will completely out of his daze. The teacher yelled at them to behave but other wise said nothing as some kids snickered.

Will flushed and mumbled an apology.

“What’s up with you? You’ve been this way since lunch.” Lou commented with a smirk.

“What do you mean? Like what?” Will asked.

“ Like this.” Cecil stated as he impersonated Will, over exaggerating everything.

Lou laughed and nodded. “Yeah like that.”

Will seemed to blush harder as he rubbed the back of his neck. “Well I…..me and…..I kissed Nico.” He finally spewed out.

That effectively made Lou and Cecil freeze. All they did was blink.

“Uh guys?” Will questioned, genuinely worried that he had broken his friends.

“You did what?” Lou asked at the same time that Cecil asked. “Wait, what?”

(( can you guys believe I’m already at part 17? Because I can’t XD))

You Are Watching: GHOST KING (part 6)

A couple weeks passed as Nico and his family worked out the major details with the TV company. And it was a lot easier than Nico thought it would be. Apparently they had been wanting to ask him if he wanted to do a show but they had no way to contact him unless they left a comment on YouTube and they didn’t want to be so unprofessional. But in the span of those past weeks, Nico hadn’t had time to update or even shoot a new video, and his fans were getting antsy.

____________________________

~ [ > ] The Ghost King has uploaded a new video: ‘Big News!’ View it out now. ~

“Hey guys! So first off let me apologize for the lack of video updates these last couple of weeks. Secondly, I will no longer be uploading videos here on YouTube………………………yup you heard me right. There will be no more Ghost King videos here…….becauuuusssseeeeee, all new episodes will be broadcast on TV! Mhm, I will now have a TV show at The Oracle. I’m really excited if you couldn’t tell, because that means more sleep for me! I’m not too excited to have a camera crew though…but oh well! So instead of uploading videos every Sunday like I do, you can now catch me every Wednesday at 8:30 PM! The season premiere will be coming soon, though I’m not allowed to tell you, so no spoilers! See you guys soon!”

___________________________________

The school was absolutely buzzing with the news of the Ghost King getting a TV show, and when the season premiere would be. It was damn near impossible not to know the news at this rate. And Nico could barely contain his own excitement. The TV station had given him a budget of course, but money meant he could purchase better equipment to prove the existence of ghosts and such, it was a good thing his recent video was still being talked about. Because his excitement could easily be mistaken for fan excitement. Jason and Piper congratulated him as soon as they heard the good news, which was before everyone else. Well besides Nico’s family.

But so far Nico’s favorite reaction came from his favorite blue-eyed blond. Will had come over to play video games a little after Nico had uploaded the video so when Will came over, they both got notified of the update. Will’s eyes widened and he definitely let out a squeal of joy, which he absolutely denys, and flailed his hands before clicking the notification. It was always weird to watch himself in his videos but he often had to when friends of his who didn’t know who he was wanted to show him their favorite parts or where you could totally see a ghost and yada yada yada. But watching with Will wasn’t all that bad, plus he was an open book so whatever he was feeling as he watched videos was always present on his face.

Nico liked that about Will, that he was easy to read. Well sometimes. When Will didn’t want you to know something you wouldn’t unless he wanted you too, it was very odd.

“Hey, do you want to go grab some pizza with us this weekend at Jack’s?” Will asked Nico as they walked to English together. He had been asking Nico to hang out a lot lately, this was one of those times that Nico didn’t know what Will was thinking, and he felt as though he was under a microscope.

He gave a sheepish shrug, “Sorry. Can’t. I work this weekend remember? I work every weekend.” Was his reply. Which was the truth actually. Well, kinda. This weekend he would be shooting the very first episode of Ghost King for the television, but whenever he said work in the past he usually meant he was doing Ghost King things, not that Will had to know that. His dad and him came up with the excuse that Hades had his son help out at the office every weekend for some extra cash. Which again wasn’t wrong, but he only did that on Fridays when he could.

“Again? You’re always busy di Angelo.” Will pouted.

“Not always.” Nico tried to reason, but he knew it was true. The past couple of weeks he had been busy, like really busy, but for other reasons than the ones he gave his friends.

“Yes always! Everytime I try to hang out with you, you either have an appointment, got sick, or have work.”

“I know…..but after this weekend I should totally have time to hang out. How about Lou, Cecil, you and I go see a movie or something next weekend?” If Nico were being honest, he would prefer it to just be the two of them, but not like a date or anything!….okay….like a date and everything. But Nico was far too shy about things like that and if he had the courage to actually ask out Will he would, but he also didn’t want to ruin their friendship. It was a good friendship, and yes the Italian wanted something more, but he liked have constancy in his life and he really didn’t want things to change out of fear of them changes in a bad manner.

“Fine. But you’re paying!” Will declared with a smile.

Nico chuckled and nodded, “That seems fair.”

“It is! Since you know, you’ve been Mr. Busy.”

“Again. Not my fault, Solace.”

“Totally your fault, di Angelo. But anyways wanna have lunch with me today?”

“Don’t we always?”

“I don’t mean at the table.”

“Oh? Where did everyone wanna eat today? Outside the library again?”

“No. I mean maybe everyone else will but, uh, you seem pretty tired today and I know it’s been pretty noisy everywhere we go today, I figured you’d like to eat somewhere quite….do you wanna eat in Demeter’s Garden with me again?”

Nico felt his heart race and tried his best not to blush, because that sounded an awful lot like a date. But it was just lunch! Just lunch, with just them two, which has happened before, but this felt different. “Uh yeah, sure. Thanks. You, know, for noticing.” Nico mumbled as they both walked into their classroom and took their respective seats next to each other.

“I always notice if it’s you, Nico.” And oh, oh boy. Will’s voice was so full of honesty and the smile he was giving Nico was giving him the wrong idea….but Nico felt like it was okay to get the wrong idea because what if that’s what Will meant? What if he liked Nico back? Nah, that couldn’t be right….could it?

Before Nico could respond, the bell for class to start rang loudly.

__________________________

Beside him, Nico was working diligently on the assignment the substitute gave them, but Will on the other hand was having a mental freak out. Nico agreed to have lunch with him! Which okay wasn’t that big a deal. They had had lunch together before but this felt….different. Will couldn’t describe it, it was just different. But then. But then Will had to open his stupid mouth and say stupid things. Like, ‘I always notice if it’s you, Nico.’ What the fuck was he thinking! Oh right he wasn’t thinking. He could never really think when Nico was around.

But maybe what he said hadn’t been all that awkward? It made Nico smile at him albeit slightly, he had also looked pretty shocked, and he blushed. Gosh. he was so cute when he blushed. And now Will was blushing. Damn it.

You Are Watching: GHOST KING (part 7)

Will honestly could not wait for lunch, mainly to clear up his awkward statement from before class started. Nico didn’t seem to mind it, but still, he’d rather his crush not find out he liked him just yet. He had a plan!

No really he did!

But he had yet to put that plan to affect.

Will was brought out of his thoughts by the shrill sound of the bell, the butterflies in his belly felt as though they were starting a fucking mosh pit in his stomach. Especially when Nico stood next to him and gave him a small teasing smirk, “Ready for lunch, Dork? Or would you rather sit here spacing out some more?”

Will huffed but smiled as he stood up and grabbed his backpack, putting his stuff away before slinging it on. “I wasn’t spacing out.” He denied as they walked out of the classroom.

“The teacher called on you twice but gave up when you didn’t respond.”

“Why didn’t you tell me!?”

“It was funny.”

Will looked at his dark haired friend with an unamused face. “Hardy har har.”

Nico laughed as they continued on their way to the science building.

“And how did I not get in trouble?”

“It told her you weren’t feeling well. See I have your back.”

Will rolled his eyes and slung an arm around Nico’s thin shoulder and pulled him into the science building. “You’re such a good friend.”

“Was that sarcasm?”

“With you di Angelo? Never.”

Nico let out a snort and shook his head smiling fondly. “This is why I call you a dork, Dork.”

“ I am not dork!”

_______________________________

Will denying he was a dork always made Nico smile since it was so very obvious that he was indeed a dork.

“Suuurrrrreeeeeee.”

“You and your stupid sarcasm.” Will chuckled as they entered the beautiful garden and went to sit underneath the weeping willow since it was really hot out today.

“I’ll have you know I am quite fluent in sarcasm.” Nico declared as he took off his backpack and through it on the ground and sat beside it. Will handled his backpack differently, he gently took it off and placed it on the ground before he claimed his spot beside Nico.

“Agreed. It’s like your second language.”

“Actually it’s my fourth.”

“What?”

“Well if sarcasm was actually a language, it would be my fourth technically speaking.”

“….you speak other languages?”

“Yup.”

“And you never told me?”

_______________________________

Will was shocked. This was the first he ever heard of this.

“You never asked.” Nico replied nonchalantly with a shrug as he pulled out his lunch box out of his backpack. Will glanced at the metal box and grinned at the lid, it always made him grin. It was a mythomagic lunch box, so no matter how much times he called Will a dork, he would always be a dork himself.

“So what’s your second language?”

“English.” The dark haired boy answered as he pulled out a triangle thing wrapped in foil. He opened the foil and behold it was a slice of pizza.

Wait. Did Will hear him right? He just said English…..what?

“Wait. What?”

“English is my second language.” Nico said slowly as though he was talking to a child.

“Okay so what’s your first?” Will asked as he got over his initial shock and pulled out his lunch as well.

“Italian. And before you ask. Yes I’m italian.”

“Yeah I got that asshole.”

“Just wanted to make sure.”

“So you’re Italian?”

Nico nodded in response as he ate his pizza. His cold pizza. Will stuck out his tongue in disgust, he had no idea how Nico could rat his pizza like that. In turn Nico stuck his tongue out at Will playfully and continued eating happily.

“Wow….so what other languages do you speak?”

“All in all. First and foremost, Italian,” Nico held up one finger and began to count off all the other languages, “then English, Greek, some French and I guess now, sarcasm.” He replied cheekily.

“Thats…..wow. that’s pretty cool!” Will exclaimed.

‘Not to mention hot!’ Will thought as he felt himself blush.

“Why thank you!” The Italian said proudly as he finished off his pizza and took out his soda. Will made another face.

“You eat too much junk food.”

“You act like you don’t, Solace.”

“I eat junk food in moderation. You seem to live off it.”

Nico rolled his eyes perfectly and chuckled.

From then on Will continued to make Nico say things in whatever language the blond wanted to hear.

All around it was a good lunch, and peaceful too. Nico was pretty happy, it was good not to hear about Ghost King and relive his previous weeks.

But then Will brought up Ghost King, of course.

“So did you hear the news about Ghost King?”

“Of course, it’s all everyone’s been talking about. I mean yeah, a TV show is pretty cool, but everyone is overreacting a bit.”

“Agreed, but that’s not what I’m talking about.”

“What are you talking about?”

Will looked at Nico with pity, like he always did when Nico wasn’t up to date with celebrities and such, or what’s going in in the world, or whatever. Nico hated it, it made him feel like he was from a different century.

“Ghost King, or at least the producers are holding a fan contest. Whoever can make the best fanmade music video or opening for the show gets to go on an exploration or lock down with Ghost King for his first official episode! I follow the producer on twitter. They announced it last night.” Will stated as he pulled out his phone and tapped away before showing Nico the screen. And there it was. A twitter post confirming exactly what Will said.

Nico was pissed! The producers hadn’t notified him of this!

OoooooOooooh boy were they in for it. But for now he had to keep cool.

“Wow….that’s just……wow.”

“Yeah. I’m entering! Are you gonna?”

Shit.

Yeah...I’m calling bullshit on a couple of those Fifa 17 Player Ratings

1) Erin McLeod (no arguments that she’s an amazing goalkeeper) has been out for at least the past 6 months with an ACL tear and thus should not be ranked as the number 1 GK this year.

2) Megan Rapinoe is ranked at number 2 and literally JUST came back into international play this past month after not having played since early December 2016. She still can’t even play a full 90 minutes.

3) And then Tobin Heath, who’s arguably had the best year of her career so far and is one of the most technical players out there, didn’t even crack the top 10.

4) AND THEN they put the one and only Marta ranked behind Pinoe who, once again, has played maybe 90 minutes TOTAL this year by the time FIFA created these ranks.
