heroes of olympus headcanons

The Origin of Solangelo

It had been two days since Gaia’s defeat. Nico and Will were strolling through the woods at camp, talking quietly. They were completely alone, just the two of them. Normally, Nico liked being alone, but for some reason, being alone with Will made him really nervous.

“I’m glad you decided to stay at camp,” Will said. “So many of the others are leaving. Annabeth and Percy are gone for school, and-” Will paused. “You used to like him, didn’t you?”

Nico flinched. “Where did you hear that?”

“Nothing really happens around here without me knowing,” Will shrugged. “Information is always being passed around.”

“Oh.” Nico stuck his hands in his pockets, sighing. “Yeah, I liked him. But I was young. Those feelings have faded away. I didn’t know what it was like to really love someone.”

Will looked up at Nico. “I’ve always known what that was like. There’s this person I’ve liked for years. But my feelings never faded away.”

For some reason, Nico was disappointed, learning that Will liked someone. Nico did his best to hide his emotions, but he couldn’t help tearing up a little. “Well, whoever she is, she-”

“Not a she,” Will interrupted. His voice softened. “Nico, why are you crying?”

“I-”

Will smiled, realizing why Nico had gotten so upset. He continued his story. “I’ve liked him forever, but I could never gather enough courage to tell him. It didn’t seem like he wanted to talk to anybody.”

Will took a nervous deep breath.

“And he still doesn’t know that I like him. Well, until now. If he’s smart enough to put the pieces together.”

Nico stared at Will in disbelief. “Are you talking about-”

Will nodded, answering the question that Nico hadn’t even asked yet.

Nico couldn’t help it. He pulled Will into a hug. “I like you, too,” Nico whispered.

good trans will fic ideas besides the usual “coming out” tale;

1) binder fashion show - will is the self proclaimed Binder Boy and buys every single binder design ever. its a good thing he lives at camp and has wealthy friends (nico - “your boyfriend should be your best friend” - and cecil) otherwise he’d be suffocated by debt

2) nico (or lover of your choice, though i myself am partial to a finely aged Solange TM) having to buy menstrual products and being a total weenie about it. please consider this. bonus: cashier jokes “for your girlfriend?” and he gets steely and protective and growls “my BOYfriend, actually” and leaves the store glaring at the cashier for assuming. bonus bonus bonus; dont use the term “feminine hygiene”. keep things as gender neutral as possible. bonus bonus; “menstruation… more like, MANstruation!! hahaha geddit nico, cuz im a dude? ….nico? neeks, where are you going, come laugh at my-”

3) beach day fic, because every anime needs a beach episode and pjo is my favorite anime, obviously. you get to have fun picking out beach wear, plus everyone gets to be cute and splash around. maybe will cant go into the water because he doesnt have one of the special binders and mentions this, or hes wearing a bikini top (“its my MANkini. wait is that already a thing”) with a tank top over it so you can see his Moobs TM. bonus if a monster attacks and everyone is ready to fight, but will (who has taken down HOW MANY?? enemies with a single whistle) just waves his hand like hes shooing a bug and a flash of sunlight cuts the huge creature in half. he then goes back to reclining in the sun, calling to nico/your lover of choice to “come back over here, baby, sit with meee~!! its so nice out today, isnt it?”

4) zombie apocalypse or just apocalypse au. will Refuses to bind with bandage and thus has visible boobs. you can vaguely mention he’s transgender then go back to the zombie punching and otherwise assorted badass violence

5) any fic at all. like above, all you gotta do is find a way to throw in “nah i didnt feel like binding today” or “ugh i have a boob itch” or “he/him please” or “will wore a tiny trans pride pin” etc. all you gotta do is mention that he is trans and he continues to be trans throughout the story. you dont gotta mention genitals or menstruation or even dysphoria at all. just throw the word trans in there somewhere and you done did it and im proud of you

One day, when Percy and Annabeth are with Will and Nico just shows up and starts to tell Will about something really exciting and he’s a bit jumpy and he’s smiling and pretty loud. will is all smiles but then he notices that Percy has tears in his eyes and they ask him what’s wrong but
Percy just turns to Annabeth and says


“Our Nico is back,”

I love how solangelo fics are either

“My love, could you pass the salt please?” Will said to Nico as he smiled. The light of his life passed the pale canister across the table with a graceful hand

Or

“Nico, you twat, pass the gods-awful salt. My lunch is dryer than your sense of humor, you stubborn dishcloth.” Nico flipped Will off as he continued to listen to his music

And there is no in between

I have this headcanon that, like almost all little kids on this planet, Percy wanted a pet when he was little - he still does *coughs*. But he didn’t want a cat or a dog or something normal like that. Percy’s always been weird.

“Mom can you buy me a hammerhead?”

Or something like:

“Do you think an acquarium for a dozen of eels would fit in my room?” (Sally goes like “We live in the Upper East Side, Percy, what do you think?”)

Then, he’s at Camp Half-Blood a few years later and the situation gets pretty worse.

“Hey, um, Chiron. Tiny favour. What about we build some underwater stable for hippocampuses, do you think it’d cost that much?”

Then he’s married.

“Hey Annabeth-”

“NO, PERCY. NO. I DON’T WANT A SHARK.”

“Uh okay just don’t get mad. Just asking.”

Their 8 year old son gifts him a jellyfish for his birthday and Percy cries

Will showed up at camp one summer with a broken arm and a sprained leg. He had a lot of bruises and a huge cut that was healing on his forehead. He was probably healing from a worse injury. His mother seemed shaken up when she dropped him off. He was very quiet for a few days. From that point on, Will was a year rounder.

Everyone assumed it was a monster. Will let them. In a way, it was a monster. Will had gotten caught kissing another boy by some guys on the high school football team. Will was in the 8th grade. The guy he’d been caught with got away. He tripped Will.

Will didn’t get away.

Children of Hecate

Requested by anonymous.

  • Children of Hecate sometimes stay up all night practicing their sorcery. 
  • Other campers usually bring coffee or other hot drinks to their sleep-deprived friends from cabin 20.
  • As their mother was granted power in all the realms (sky, ocean, earth and underworld) by the Big Three, using the four elements in their witchcraft can strengthen their spell.
  • The runes and inscriptions in the stones they used to build their cabin don’t only strengthen the walls of their cabin and lessen their unintended spell-casting, but also make it so their cabin is bigger on the inside.
  • They all even have their own rooms as they - like their mother - like solitude.
  • The Hecate cabin also has their own treasure room in which they keep objects the Hecate campers have collected on their quests.
  • They only keep the magical or enchanted objects though and send everything else to the attic of the Big House.
  • One kid got inspired by reading Harry Potter and now a lot of Hecate campers have enchanted their ceilings just like the Great Hall.
  • Hecate likes to help her kids learn how to use their powers.
  • They have a huge mirror to contact their mother whenever they have questions or “my spell still didn’t work and now we need a new couch”.
  • Once they are claimed, Hecate gives her children a crash course on all the different forms of magic and learns them the basics of each.
  • Eventually they have to choose a specialty though, as there are too many different forms of magic to excel in them all.
  • Naturally, they love fantasy novels. 
  • A lot of them love wearing eccentric clothing, long cloak-like dresses or even actual cloaks. 
  • They don’t even know why.
  • Their grades at school usually aren’t always the best, but they constantly surprise (read; annoy) their teachers by knowing the most random facts.
  • They might not know who fought who in the battle of Waterloo, but “did you know Napoleon legalised homosexuality?
  • “Also he stopped killing ‘witches’ at the same time”, but them knowing this has nothing to do with their mother also being the goddess of trivia. 
  • “Who were they kidding anyway, trying to drown us.”
  • “Yeah, just because we have power underwater doesn’t mean they’re going to see us use it. They’ll just have a ‘death’ to explain while our ancestral sisters moved to the next village.”
  • “And what about our brothers? Super sexist if you ask me.”
  • Of course, kids of Hecate are all feminists no matter what their gender is.
Drawing Soulmate AU

Based on the AU where anything your soulmate draws on their skin shows up on your skin too

  • Percy draws on his arms when he’s bored in class
  • Which is nearly all the time
  • Percy hopes his soulmate likes the pictures he draws
  • Annabeth really likes seeing the random doodles show up
  • They help her feel not as alone after she runs away

  • When Percy shows up at Camp he had a few random words written in Greek
  • While Annabeth is giving him ambrosia she notices the same words on her arms and gets really excited
  • She writes, “You drool in your sleep” on her arm and sure enough it shows up on Percy’s
  • When he wakes up he’s really confused but then he sees Annabeth and they both get really excited because they found each other at twelve.
  • Piper doesn’t write on her arms a lot since it washes off in water pretty easily (and it’s only on your soulmate’s arm as long as it’s on yours)
  • Then Piper gets a mostly waterproof marker and writes on her arm all. the. time.
  • Jason is thrilled when he gets more messages all of a sudden
  • When Jason gets the tattoo on his arm Piper is really surprised since they’re only four
  • The tattoo on her arm fades overtime but it’s never completely gone
  • Frank doesn’t get any marks on his arm for a really long time
  • But the first one he gets is a really amazing drawing of horse on his left arm
  • As soon as that shows up he writes “Hi” in really big letters across his hand
  • Hazel is really excited when the word “Hi” shows up
  • For a while they communicate through writings
  • Every time one of them asks where the other lives they always say “it’s complicated” since they’re not sure how to explain New Rome
  • One day they’re both on guard duty when Frank asks what Hazel’s doing and she says she’s drawing a picture for her soulmate
  • A small cluster of yellow flowers that’s a few feet away
  • Slowly, as she’s drawing, the lines begin to show up on Franks arm
  • He gets really excited but he wants to let her finish the drawing first so he waits before asking to borrow her pen
  • Then, in huge letters, he rights “Hi” on his hand

  • Leo is cracking up during Mark of Athena when they write “Hot Stuff” and “All the Ladies luv Leo”
  • He hopes his soulmate is having a good laugh too
  • He’s never gotten any writings back but he always convinces himself that his soulmate is out there somewhere
  • Calypso feels bad about not being able to respond but she’s glad her soulmate keeps sending messages
  • Will writes notes for himself all the time on his arm
  • Sometimes they’re things like “Clean up cabin” or “Restock Band-Aids”
  • But other times they’re really obscure things like “Look up Sphenopalatine Ganglioneuralgia”
  • Nico can’t figure out if his soulmate just really likes words or if they want to be a doctor or something similar since they tend to be medical related
  • Nico usually writes what the word means on his arm and Will will tell him if he got it right
  • Nico writes phrases in Italian
  • They love the game they have going of looking up obscure medical words and translating Italian
  • When Nico shows up at camp he goes to Will and says, “Hey, you know medical words, can you tell me what this means?”
  • And Will gets really excited and says what he just translated from Italian
  • And they’re both so happy because they finally found each other

I feel like Jason would be such a terrible glasses owner?? Like, he always loses them and searches everywhere and they’re on top of his head the whole time. He does that thing where he pushes them up by the lens, making smudges. He constantly has to get back out of the shower because he accidentally got in with his glasses on. He’s sat on like three pairs. He’ll stare at something for nine years trying to figure out what it is instead of just putting his glasses on. Jason is just??? A nerd?? A terrible nerd???

Camp Halfblood Valentine's Day Headcanons

I think a lot about Nico trying over and over again to summon Bianca or his mother, only to get nothing for months. And the number of failed tries just kept growing, tens, twenties, and suddenly it was hundreds. And just when he had given up hope, Percy Jackson comes along and she appears. And the first thing she said? “Hello Percy” as if Nico wasn’t even there. And then Bianca, the only person he could remember caring about him, tells him she was hoping he would give up. And not even a day passes before he’s by himself again, with Minos filling him with rage. No wonder Nico was willing to trick Percy to get a shot at knowing anything about his mother. She was the only family he had, and he couldn’t even remember her name. But even with all this, he still made Hades promise not to hurt Percy. 

STOP SCROLLING RIGHT NOW

Imagine if Sally Jackson decides to call her daughter ’Blue’ because that color means something super special for her and Percy?.

And Paul has no problem with that, because he likes the sound of the name ’Blue Blofis’ and he knows what that means for his wife and stepson.

And then is Percy, who could not be more pleased with the choice of name, and now a new favorite person in his life will have the name of something that he likes a lot and is special for his family.

Hazel is the type of person to get 20 dollars and not spend it for like three months and then when she finally splurges on like a candy bar, she feels guilty about no one else having a candy bar so she buys candy for everyone and uses all of her twenty dollars in one trip
