demigod!au jooheon
  • child of apollo ,,,,, especially embodies the music and poetry aspects
  • started an amateur slam poetry club in the camp comprised of him, this one hyperemotional camper from the poseidon cabin ,,,,, and that’s about it
  • he’s so good looking that one would assume he gets all the ladies ,, but he’s actually a huge freaking Nerd and he never writes about love because he claims he “needs a muse first”
  • takes after his father perfectly
  • petitioned for the camp to buy a grand piano and they did ,,,,, and put it right in the foyer of the big house ,,,, and they reGRET IT because stupid jooheon will come at like three in the morning to practice and to write songs ,,,,,, it’s so annoying
  • it’s a good thing ,,,, that’s he a pretty good musician
  • he’s a Professional Emo Kid™ and therefore writes a lot of sad songs ,, and they aren’t necessarily sad like the lyrics are sad ,,,, the music is just ,,,,, Sad
  • “just because music is sad doesn’t mean it has to be beautiful”
  • he always has a guitar nearby, it’s almost like he can pull one out of his ass ,,,, maybe he should quit the music business and become a musician
  • he insists on having a campfire sing-a-long almost every night but the only kids that stick around are other apollo kids ,,,, and not even all of them either
  • jooheon has been at the camp since he was seven ,, he’s kinda considered a fossil among the other campers ,, he doesn’t really like talking about why he’s been at the camp for so long
  • he never leaves either
  • jooheon: “where’s my perfect attendance award it’s been a million years”
  • but ,, he’s also one of apollo’s favorites ,,, sometimes, when jooheon is nowhere to be found throughout the camp, he’ll be found sitting on the beach with a guitar, strumming along quietly while his dad ,, in the form of some nineteen-year-old surfer with perfectly bronzed skin and blonde beach waved hair ,, sits next to him and teaches him
  • apollo takes many different forms ,, so sometimes it’s not the surfer ,, sometimes it’s the john lennon wannabe ,, or the andy warhol wannabe ,,, he likes imitating famous artists and musicians
  • but jooheon always !! knows that it’s his dad because he’d be able to tell that gold eyes apart from any other pair of eyes in the entire universe
  • apollo: “no other pair of eyes in the entire universe IS gold, son”
  • think of jooheon as some kind of tortured artist ,,,,, with an enigmatic backstory and an unbelievable talent for writing about Pain
  • he’s one of those people who use laughter and humor to keep from being serious, because being serious makes them vulnerable and they ,,, do not like that
  • jooheon does Not like being vulnerable
  • so ,,,,,,, when you first arrive on ,,,,, and find him naked ,,,,,, Yeah
  • you really don’t know what happened ,,, one minute you were walking along a beach ,,,, and the next minute you were on a completely different beach in a completely different timezone ,,,, and there was a boy ,,,, and he didn’t have any clothes on
  • you screamed
  • he screamed ,, but then he grabbed you and he was like “ur gonna get me in trouble!!!” and you were like “wHeRe aRe YouR cLotHeS”
  • he’s like ,,,,, he looks down ,,,,, “oh my gods” and he grabs his shorts from off the ground and hides behind a bush while he ,, hopefully ,, pulls them on
  • meanwhile you’re basically traumatized like u didn’t look down there but the fact that you??? could’ve??? seen something??? Traumatizing
  • once he’s got pants on he starts to pull his shirt on but he hears voices and ur start looking around but he puts a hand around your mouth and pulls you behind the bush with him and makes u hide while a couple of campers investigate the area
  • it was definitely a sight ,,,, a half-naked ,, or more like one-third-naked kid and a random stranger ,,, crouched behind this miscellaneous bush ,,, the stranger is in his lap and he’s got a hand over their mouth ,,, and it’s dark and they can’t see anything so both of their eyes are as wide as plates ,,,, phenomenal
  • eventually the people leave and the voices die down and jooheon lets go of ur hand ,,, and you’re both panting ,,, he’s panting because his heart was beating a million miles a minute at the thought of getting caught ,,,, your heart was beating because ,,,,, his was
  • “so ,, i’m jooheon”
  • you open your name to respond and tell him your name, but then you realize the compromising position that the two of you were in and you basically fall over out of his lap into the sand next to him, brushing it off of your legs and turning to face him “i’m y/n”
  • “i’m ,,, really sorry ,,, about ,,,,, literally Everything that just happened ,, it’s past curfew and i was skinny dipping which i shouldn’t do and ,,,,,,,,, wait a minute where did u come from”
  • “the ,,,,,, beach????”
  • pHeNoMeNaL ,,,,,, he just stares at u ,,,, is this a joke????
  • “do you even know where you are”
  • you look around to try to see if you recognize your surroundings, but you don’t so you just look back at him and shake your head and he’s like :o
  • noT ONLY was jooheon breaking curfew and skinny dipping in the lake and now he’s found a random ,,,, human?? demigod?? yeah they’ve gotta be a demigod ,, and he’s Morally Obligated to tell the camp director
  • “okay then” he stands up, adjusting his shirt and putting on his shoes and then he holds out his hand “c’mon”
  • you’re ,,, unsure of what he’s thinking but it’s not like the situation could get any weirder ,, so you take his hand and he helps you stand up and then you start to follow him through the camp
  • “hey you never told me your name”
  • “oh !! oh yeah ,, it’s y/n”
  • “y/n” he muses “that’s ,,, a really nice name, i’m jooheon”
  • “you already told me that”
  • he’s like ,,,, oh ,,,, and there’s a really awkward silence and you follow him throughout the camp ,,, there’s not a single person in sight but that’s to be expected since ,, like jooheon said ,, it’s after curfew
  • you follow him all the way to a big, white house ,,,,,, it’s inSANELY pretty ,,,, and he opens the door and lets you through and you follow him inside and he tells you to sit behind the piano ,, so you do ,,, and he leaves the room and you’re ,,,, alone
  • so you start pressing mindlessly playing around with the keys ,,, it feels like jooheon is gone for hours but he comes back with several adults and they start talking about you ,, right in front of you
  • “are you aware that you have greek blood in you??” one of them asks
  • “do you know which of the greek gods or goddesses is your parent????”
  • you just look around ,,,, are these people crazy???? and you look at jooheon and he comes over and sits next to you on the piano bench ,,, “just tell them how you got here”
  • and for some ,, odd reason ,,, you trust this kid so you tell them about the beach and about the other beach ,, and about jooheon which earns him a couple of dirty glances and sighs ,, and about anything else you could think of that might’ve been helpful
  • they decide to let you sleep in ,,, the big house?? that’s what they called it ,, tonight, considering it was too late to move you in, so all of the adults disperse and one of them takes you to a spare room ,,,, jooheon tries to follow but they’re just like ,,,, “thank you jooheon goodnight jooheon”
  • and he blinks and he’s just like “oh ,,,,,,,,, right yeah goodnight, goodnight y/n see you tomorrow”
  • you stay up really late that night, just thinking
  • thinking about yourself ,,,, about how you’re possibly a “demigod” ,,, what that even Means ,,, about how you got to the camp ,,, about jooheon ,,,, replaying the few conversations the two of you had ,,,, about his diMPLES and then ur like no stop ,, stop that ,,, you don’t even know him ,,,, STOP
  • it’s a restless night but you eventually get to sleep
  • something wakes you up early the next morning ,, you’re still dazed but you’re also still where you were when you fell asleep ,, which concerns and relieves you at the same time
  • it’s a piano !! it’s probably the grand piano
  • so you get up and brush your teeth and hair ,, they had given you toiletries ,, what a prepared camp ,, and you get dressed and you go down the stairs and there’s jooheon, sitting at the piano and playing a really ,,,, really sad song
  • “that’s a really sad song, jooheon”
  • he jumps when he hears you ,,, wow he’s really Skittish ,,, but then he gets a little smile on his face ,,, accompanied by his Dimples™ ,, and he’s just like “do you think it’s beautiful”
  • “what??”
  • “do u think that sad song i just played was beautiful”
  • that’s a good question?? it ,,,,, was pretty ,,,, sort of ,,, “i think it was ,, pretty ,, but i don’t think the kind of emotions that it causes its listeners to have counts it as ,,, beautiful”
  • he doesn’t say anything and just stares at you ,, and you start to internally freak out because did you just offend him??? but he just returns to tapping out random notes “music doesn’t have to be beautiful if it’s sad”
  • then he stops and stands up and he’s like “c’mon, it’s almost breakfast time” and he walks over to you and the two of you leave and he starts to explain the camp to you ,,, Much Appreciated my dude
  • “so this is a camp for the child of the greek gods and goddesses, if you couldn’t figure that out ,, um all of us here are demigods ,,, including you probably, since there’s a boundary around the camp that mortals and monsters can’t penetrate ,,, my dad’s apollo, the god of music”
  • you just nod along, looking around at all the different buildings and places that the camp had ,,, you wanted to be skeptical about it, to think that magic doesn’t exist ,,,,, but you’re here, in real time, so there’s no use in denying its existence
  • “do you ,,, maybe ,,, know who you belong to??”
  • you ,, pause ,, then shake you head ,,,, before you had come to this camp, you hadn’t even believed in any of this stuff ,,, you don’t know anything about it
  • when breakfast starts, he introduces you to a couple of kids who outright ask, but it’s only three or four ,,,, it’s not until later ,,,,,,,,, when a couple boys sit down at the table with you ,,,,, lost in their own conversation ,,,,,, and Then they notice you and stop talking
  • “oh ,,,,,, hi, are you new?”
  • you nod and look over and jooheon and he begins to explain, hands gesturing wildly along ,,,,,, he explains the beach and the nudity and the bush ,,,,, and the three boys are Dead Silent ,,,,,, and one of them looks at you and takes your hands in his
  • “i am so sorry”
  • jooheon throws a tantrum ,,,,,, “kihyun how dare you i’ll have you know that” but all three of them, including the same kihyun who had now let go of your hands, stop listening and start staring in awe at you, and you’re like ,,,,,, “what” and even jooheon stops talking
  • “aphrodite”
  • you’re like ?????? and look at the kind who said it and it’s a smug looking kid with black hair and he’s got his arms over his chest and he’s leaning back in his chair and he’s like “you’ve just been claimed, sis”
  • claimed????? you???? already????? it was that easy???? you look around and most of the other kids have started staring, and some of the camp staff that you had met earlier had taken notice too, and your cheeks flush a lil and you ,,, look to jooheon for help ,,, because that’s all you’ve been doing since you got to camp ,,, and he’s staring with his mouth Agape and your cheeks flush even more
  • “it’s called aphrodite’s blessing” the black-haired kid continues to explain “it’s how she claims her kids ,,, she gives us this alluring aura and makes us look beautiful and stuff ,,, I Guess You Could Say Mine Never Wore Off”
  • you snort at him and he looks hurt but then he laughs too
  • he stands up “i’m hoseok by the way!! one of your new brothers” and he nods his head towards the rest of the camp “i’ll show you around! they’re all ,,,, gonna be a little dizzy for a while”
  • you spare one last glance in jooheon’s direction before you get up and put up your food ,,, and you start to follow your new brother hoseok ,,, throughout the camp, from the cabins to the beach ,,, which you already knew well enough ,,, to the arts and crafts area and the forest ,,,, you’re completely enamored with the idea of being able to stay at such a cool place ,,, and you’re even more attracted to the idea of learning more about yourself, starting with your mom
  • “how many more of us ,, aphrodite kids ,, are there???”
  • “we’ll never know the full number” hoseok shrugs, the two of you on your way back to camp “but here?? about seven ,, our cabin is a little crowded but we’ve got a better set-up than ,,, say ,, hermes”
  • you nod and that’s when the two of you get back to the center of the camp, where nobody is really paying any more attention to you ,, save for the few glances from kids that hadn’t seen you yet ,, and that’s when hoseok is like “hey!! i’ve gotta go but i’ll meet you at dinner so we can get your bed set up and everything” ,,, and before you can even respond he’s being dragged away by a mob of pre-teen girls
  • you’re ,,, left all alone ,,, and you’re starting to feel uncomfortable
  • a group of girls approach you ,,,, the one in the very front is So Intimidating ,,, but then she smiles and introduces herself ,,, she’s an ares kid ,,,, “do you wanna come train with me??”
  • so ,,, hesitantly ,,, you agree!!
  • right from the first day, your time at the camp becomes fun ,, you actually get really good at fighting ,,, but overprotective hoseok who isn’t nearly as suave as he wants you to think insists “yOu’Re GOiNg tO geT HuRt”
  • you ignore him
  • You Like The Pain
  • your life at the camp becomes really fast-paced
  • of course, jooheon is still ,,, like ,, your best friend and all though
  • the two of you spend most of your free time together, usually at that piano
  • his songs gradually ,,,, stop sounding sad
  • eventually, most of the camp leaves for summer ,,, why does what u figured was a summer camp need a summer??? who knows ,,, and of course you know that jooheon never leaves camp
  • the whole place is basically deserted of people that you ACTUALLY know ,,,, so you look around ,,,, completely unsure of what to do ,,, mainly looking for jooheon because he usually knows what you ned to do ,,,, but you can’t find him anywhere ,,, at this point you’re just looking for a Familiar face ,,,, and then you find kihyun ,,, so you go up to him
  • “hey ,,, uh ,,,, do u know where jooheon is”
  • he hums ,, having to think about it “well usually ,, when people can’t find him ,,, he’s out on the beach ,,,,,,,, you should already know where that is”
  • your cheeks are burning again ,,,, you Leave
  • just like kihyun said, jooheon is at the beach, sitting by himself with ,,, a guitar?? so you walk over and sit down next to him ,, he stops playing and he sighs ,, he takes his guitar off ,,,, “hey y/n”
  • “hey jooheon”
  • he doesn’t respond ,,, there’s an Awkward silence between the two of you ,, then he suddenly reaches over and kisses you ,,,, he seems to shock himself because he’s just like “ ,,,,,,, sorry”
  • it’s probably ,, just the blessing that hoseok told you about ,, maybe part of it was making you irresistible to the opposite sex or something ,, so ur just like “it’s okay”
  • back to the awkward silence
  • “so ,,, i’ve been wondering for a while ,,, is claiming usually as easy as it was for me?? i mean i hadn’t even been here fo” he cuts you off again by kissing you
  • is this???? stupid blessing??? ever gonna wear off???
  • “i think ,, i like you y/n”
  • you want him to kiss him back ,,, oh Gods yes you do ,,,, but you know that it’s just your mom making him do this ,,, “no you don’t”
  • “yes i do”
  • “no”
  • “yES why are you ,,, arguing ,, with me ,,, right now????”
  • “because it’s just this stupid aphrodite’s blessing or whatever!! it’s making your brain ,,,, or your heart ,,, or whatever go crazy!! and you’re saying crazy stuff as a result”
  • he kisses you again and you’re like !! “stop that!!”
  • “,,,, it’s not the stupid blessing y/n ,,,, i think i ,,, might ,,, maybe ,,, perhaps ,,, have some ,,, incidental feelings ,, for you and i want you to know because now you’re going to stay here a while and i don’t want to see all these other guys all over you because then it’ll make me sad and then i’ll write sad music and it won’t be beautiful because my ,, kind of sad music is never beautiful ok i’m sorry i would rather write ,, beautiful music and if you’re the one inspiring me then i kNOW it’ll be beautiful”
  • “you ,, hardly even know me, jooheon”
  • “then let me learn”
  • so ,, you do ,,, and you start to learn things, too
  • you learn about how he sneaks out literally every night because he doesn’t think there are enough hours in the day ,,,, you learn that the apollo cabin hosts a rap battle every week and he’s been the reigning champ for several years ,,,, you learn that kissing you is Probably his favorite new hobby ,,,, you learn that he hates the color of the camp shirts with a paSSION and he’d rather be wearing no shirt than “that ugly thing”
  • and ,,, you ,,, also meet his dad
  • you and jooheon ,,, had been ,,,, Possibly making out on the beach ,,,, when you heard someone’s throat clear ,,,, and the two of you practically jump apart but then jooheon’s like “oh hey dad”
  • and ur like ,,,, oH HeY dAd ,,,,, “i’m so sorry that u just ,,,, saw that”
  • and apollo ,,, looks you up and down ,,,, his face emotionless and Scary ,,,, and then it breaks into a smile and he grabs you and he’s like “it’s !!! so !!! nice !!! to finally meet the girl that my boy prays to me about all the time you’re such a nice looking girl he tells me you’re the daughter of aphrodite which yeah of course you’d be nice looking then sorry i’m being kind of creepy anyways i knew you’d be here so i wanted to introduce myself”
  • then ,,,,, he’s gone ,,, he doesn’t even give you a chance to respond
  • so you just ,, look at jooheon ,, just like you always did when you first got to camp
  • he just sighs ,,,, and then smiles and laughs ,,, and grabs your hand
  • “sorry”
