The one where Will is the one on Ogygia instead of Calypso, and Nico gets stranded on the island..
Blessed be the boys time can’t capture
thing Nico hears when he wakes up, is the churning of water splashing against a
rock. He lifts his head from the sand and takes in his surroundings. It’s seems
he’s on an island, palm trees are lining the beach that stretches out for
miles. He squints his eyes as the sun shines right in them. It’s too much and
too bright; he doesn’t like it. The whole thing is very beautiful. Nico can see
that. Objectively. He’s sure he would’ve loved it if it weren’t for the fact
that he has no idea where ‘it’ is. Or if he were a regular human. That’s to
say, Nico isn’t exactly a… sunshine-y person.
probably get up instead of lying on the sand like some kind of dead fish. He brushes the sand off his clothes once he’s
standing. How did he get there? Let’s start there. He rakes his memory and
vaguely recalls falling out of a boat. During a thunderstorm? A fight, maybe?
Did someone push him? What was he doing on a boat in the first place?
very hazy and blurry, creating one big mess of colours going into other colours
and faces changing to waves of water violently moving.
when he can’t remember where he comes from or how he got here. It’s driving him
crazy. He’s also really hungry and he decides that if he’s going to be here
until he finds a solution, he better find someone to give him food. He never
thought he’d ever say that, but gods he
hopes there’s people here. He’s not keen on starving. When he imagines his own
death, it’s usually a lot more heroic than starvation and involving much more
walks around for a few minutes, still trying to find something, anything, to show him what he’s supposed
to do now and being convinced he’s dying because of this unbearable heat. For a
split second when he opened his eyes, he thought he might be in Elysium. But,
no, Nico’s paradise consists of far less light. This is more like hell for him.
It’s certainly hot enough. But as a son of Hades though, Nico knows what hell
looks like and this is not it. It’s not nearly that bad.
washes over him when he notices a little house looming a little further away.
He walks a little faster, wanting to know if someone lives there. And more
importantly, if that someone has food and some water he can drink without coughing
for half an hour due to the salt burning his
chest. Nico does not understand all the hype around the beach.
closer to the house, he notices a person, a man standing hunched over. Nico
can’t see what he’s doing. He goes closer. It quickly becomes clear that it’s
indeed a young man. With hair that glitters gold in the sun. And if his face is
as impressive as his backside, he must be extremely handsome. That’s not
important, though. The last thing Nico needs right now is a cute boy to
distract him form the task at hand: getting the hell out of here and going back
to wherever it is he comes from. Not that he would let the boy distract him if
he were cute. Nico’s quite good at focusing. On important things.
I see you have appreciation for Frank. So how did you feel about his "sudden" physical transformation in the books or how he was treated in general during Blood of Olympus?
ohhhh b o i;;;; okay, so ngl when frank’s physical appearance changed i was really upset bc i always imagined him chubby and i dunno i cant look at him the way riordan wants him to be. (sighs) i mean honestly if riordan wanted to change frank so badly he couldve let him have time???? like realistically???? eh
also im upset that frank isnt paid attention enough in the books i mEAN HE LITERALLY HAS HIS LIFE TIED TO A FUCKING STICK. THAT SHOULD BE SOMETHING WE SHOULD ALL BE CONCERNED ABOUT BC WOW FRANK WOULD P MUCH BE DEAD IF THAT STICK BURNED UP.
i really wish frank had a better ending;;;; like cool hes with hazel i love them but i wish he was memorable ya kno???
