1980 has been a lousy year for the entire gang, particularly Hyde and Jackie. When a beloved cultural icon dies, the two take an impulsive trip to New York, together. While there, they remember old impressions of one another, and discover new things about
There’s something you need to know. This. Us. It’s different. You’re different. I can’t sleep. I think about you all the time. I’m off my food. I look forward to when you’ll next insult me. Yeah, so you say to all the girls, Jerome Jordan.
get to know me meme: [1/10] scenes ➥ Jerome Clarke kisses Joy Mercer during audiotions, which wasn’t scripted
you are a story that I’ve written a thousand times over. in this version, you wear my favourite mustard sweater and I push my thumbs into the hollow of your shoulders. in another one, we tramp through a field of wild flowers that are coloured dizzy and purple just like us. 200 years ago, I fell in love with you in the shadow of a willow tree and the branches looked like they wanted us to touch. 100 years after that, I pass you in a coffee shop window and think of you for months after that. we fall in and out of love in every one of these stories. i feed you dandelions. i eat honey off your back. we hold hands like we are going to fall off the edge of the universe together.
and I s2g if anyone fights me about this I will throw my fridge at you
• HE’S GAY
like, really gay. full, raging homo. why on earth would you ship him with a girl?
- “but it’s not confirmed!” / “he could be bi!”
“What made you want to add a gay character into the Percy Jackson series? What inspired you to write the series?” was asked and answered on Rick’s Goodreads a while ago. Note, “gay”, with no dispute in the answer.
“Nico had once read a story from Plato, who claimed that in the ancient times all humans had been a combination of male and female. Each person had two heads, four arms, four legs. Supposedly, these combo-humans had been so powerful they made the gods uneasy, so Zeus split them in half - man and woman. Ever since, humans had felt incomplete. They spent their lives searching for their other halves. And where does that leave me? Nico wondered. It wasn’t his favourite story.” (Blood of Olympus, chapter 15) Yes. Very bi/pan/poly. So much fyi i like vagina. He’s entirely into girls. What is a dick anyway?
• SO RESPECT THAT
It’s his sexuality. Idk about you, but I’m aro/ace, and people even jokingly shipping me with anyone else makes me, like, really uncomfortable.
- “but you ship straight characters in same-gender/polyamorous relationships!”
Since we’re talking about Nico here, we’ll leave other fandoms out of it. Not a single character in any of Rick Riordan’s mythology series has a confirmed sexuality - except for Nico. And if you’re going to assume characters’ heteroromance/sexuality from their lack of canon attraction to their gender, you and your straight-until-proven-otherwise mindset can just leave.
- “I’m only shipping it. What’s the harm? I think they’re cute.”
Would you vote for Donald Trump in an election? Y’know, it’s not the nicest thing to do, but, like, it doesn’t really matter. It’s one vote. But you wouldn’t, would you? (if you would, please, please just leave right now) However insignificant it might be, it’s just wrong. Also, you’re adding to all the other people that have voted for Donald Trump - quite possibly thinking the same thing. So don’t vote for Donald Trump, and don’t ship Nico with Thalia or Annabeth or Reyna or the bloody genderbent Will that this demonic corner of the PJO Instagram fandom is a fan of. (don’t even ask)
• HE’S REPRESENTATIVE OF THE ENTIRE LGBTQIA+ COMMUNITY
I’m sorry, but I can name exactly two book series aimed at middle-grade kids that have LGBTQIA+ characters; Pretty Little Liars and The Heroes of Olympus. (we’re not counting Harry Potter here. saying years later that Dumbledore was gay with only minor implications in canon isn’t representation imo, sorry Jo.) Having representation in kids’ series is so important, and wiping out that representation by ignoring his sexuality or erasing it and headcanoning him as bi/pan/poly is pretty homophobic and disgusting. We have representation. Respect it.
• HE HAS NO CHEMISTRY WITH ANY GIRL IN THE SERIES, WHAT ARE YOU EVEN DOING
Reyna sees him as a brother?? He barely knows Thalia or Annabeth?? And as for “”Willow”” (genderbent Will. It’s hellish, I promise), that’s straight down homophobia if you keep Nico as a boy.
Happy almost birthday!! You asked your followers for selfies so here’s one c: my name is Ryssa, my favorite thing about myself is my eyes, and one of my secrets is I might be opening an etsy shop with devotional jewelry for different pantheons soon! Tell me about yourself? c:
First day of kindergarten. You cried because you broke the yellow crayon, and you were too afraid to tell anyone. You’ve come pretty far, ending the world, not a terrific notion. But the thing is? Yeah. I love you. I loved crayon-breaky Willow and I love scary veiny Willow.
The first day of kindergarten, you cried because you broke the yellow crayon and you were too afraid to tell anyone. You’ve come pretty far. Ending the world - not a terrific notion… But the thing is… yeah, I love you. I love crayon-breaky Willow and I love scary, veiny Willow. So if I’m goin’ out, it’s here. If you wanna kill the world, well, then start with me. I’ve earned that.
favourite buffy/willow moments from the early seasons?
sorry i took so long to get to this!! i kept looking at it and getting overwhelmed bc i love…. all the moments…. i can’t even come up w a distinct top five, but here are a few from s1-3??
everything in Choices!!! “you had friends like *buffy*!” willow choosing to stay in sunnydale!! willow & buffy rolling around in the grass!!! im emo about this episode bc i just rewatched it this week, and literally every buffy/willow interaction here is the best. like…. as soon as willow was in danger, buffy didnt give a damn about the mayor? getting willow back was the Only Thing that mattered.
EVERYTHING IN WELCOME TO THE HELLMOUTH. “you don’t have to come back!” “i’ll be right back.”
willow bein insanely jealous of faith…. throughout all of s3…. makes me sad? but also? it solidifies the theory that willow had a big ass crush on buffy
PROPHECY GIRL when buffy’s all “I Quit” and then she sees how upset willow is that the vamps are making her world THEIR world and buffy just….. decides to kill the master. she died to save the world, but also…. she died for willow. imo.
