Percy just turns to Annabeth and says
Hades requested to judge Percy and Annabeth personally after they died Poseidon and Athena were worried at first, but between Aphrodite’s knowing smile and Persephone reassurances that she would not allow her husband to do anything terrible they agreed, as it turned out the reason why Hades wanted to judge them himself was because he felt that they did so much for the gods that they pretty much lived 3 heroes lives and allowed them into the isles of bless without live three times
Nico is 100% the guy who is 5′2 and acts like he’s 6′0 like he would be reaching for something on a high shelf and he’ll climb on top of counters like it’s nothing all the while refusing help from Will who is 6′0

•Large hands with sun freckles, sun freckles going up and down his arms
•He eats sooo much and everyone wonders where it all goes
•He’s an emotional eater
•He always and only showers in the morning. The water energizes him so if he showers before bed he can’t get to sleep. If he showers in the morning, however, he is instantly groggy-free and ready to take on the day.

•The first thing Percy did after the war with Gaea (besides seeing his mom) was taking Grover out for enchiladas
•Video game wars with the guys are the best. Sometimes the girls play with them though and put the guys to shame; Percy frequently has these intense battles with Piper.
•After Nico admitted his crush on Percy, they actually became really good friends. “Dude I’m sorry you had to put up with this for so long” is what Percy frequently says instead of complaining that Percy is not Nico’s type.
•In fact, they become such good friends that Will often comes to Percy for advice about Nico
•Piper and Percy are great friends, and Piper never minds if Percy comes along when her and Annabeth are hanging out.
•When Annabeth is studying super hard and is stressed, Percy invites Piper over cause the two of them together help Annabeth relax and have fun once in a while.
•Percy went missing for a day. Annabeth flipped out because she thought it was Hera’s doing all over again, but she found him the next day passed out in the middle of the strawberry fields. Percy offered no explanation.
•Tyson sometimes surprise visits Percy at camp, and the two are always attached at the hip till Tyson has to leave.

•When he is angry or upset at dinner, the drinking glasses quiver.
•In one case, he got so angry that the toilets exploded. Again.
•When he is really mad or upset he just walks straight to the bottom of the canoe lake and sits there.
•He almost got suspended from camp when he was so angry he went to the bottom of the lake and summoned a giant wave to look like a hand flipping everyone off when they tried to get him out. Chiron called Sally Jackson, and sent a note to Percy at the bottom with the words “Your mother is on the phone.”
So everyday Will would put a yellow sticky note with a heart on it on the Hades cabin door. They would always disappear so he just assumed that Nico took them and just discarded them after seeing them.
One day Will is looking for something in the Hades cabin and opens one of Nico’s drawers and there are just hundreds of yellow sticky notes that Nico saved over the months.
