will always knew he wanted to be a doctor and so basically everything he did from age 10 and on was to help him get into a good medical school. one of those things was taking ballet classes - not only could he earn scholarships if he was good enough, but some schools like harvard were always looking for male ballerinas
also, turns out, will’s really good at ballet???? hes got such good rhythm and hes so flexible??? sure he gets picked on at school for being girly but hes not girly hes smart
(((ballet also helped him realize that hes totally bisexual ok)))
nico has never once considered what his future might hold and doesn’t care to think about it like at all bc he kinda doesnt think he has much of a future. so instead of working hard to get into a good college or even trying to pass his high school classes he pulls stupid stunts and hangs around the skatepark with his few friends
nobody dares pick on him ok and he doesnt pick on anyone bc whats the point?? of any of this???? its all stupid and he just wants to be left alone
nico skips class one day while the school’s one dance class is rehearsing in the auditorium (and everyone knows that that’s the easiest place to sneak into when youre skipping) and he can only see one boy in the class but hes tall and muscular and gorgeous and totally solidifies the fact that nico is gay, like he’d suspected before but seeing this,,,,
so afterwards nico’s actually heading to one of his classes and he sees a couple of jerks picking on that pretty boy from the dance class and pretty boy is completely ignoring them but nico walks up anyway and shoves the couple of jerks out of the way and goes “leave him alone at least hes doing something with his life unlike you”
and before will even has a chance to say anything to nico hes already gone so will asks around to see if anyone even,,,, knows??? who that kid is???
will shows up at the skate park after school bc that’s the best lead hes gotten on where to find that kid and when he gets there he can see the kid screwing around, totally looking like hes about to fall all the way down that ten-foot halfpipe but will catches him just before he falls
nico thanks him and will’s like “call it a repayment for helping me earlier” and nicos kinda like yeah sure whatever is that all you wanted? and wills like “well actually no i was kinda hoping you would also go on a date with me??”
nico’s like “you wanna get picked on more?? u realize im basically a dropout waiting to happen and youre top 10 in our class???” will shrugs and says that doesnt matter to him but what does matter is nicos opinion on pizza bc that’s probably where will might take him on their date
they do end up dating and nico ends up sneaking into every single rehearsal and recital that will has and will buys nico a new skateboard for his birthday with a matching helmet that he knows nico is never going to wear but its the thought that counts
((instead will wears it when nico tries teaching him how to skate. for all will’s balance, he can’t manage to stay on the board for more than a minute))
thanks for the suggestion i hope this is what you were looking for!!!!
think of your and Peter’s child deciding they want to do ballet so then Peter having to be great at helping his kids with whatever they love, also ends up doing ballet. Your child is practicing and doing good, so Peter tries to practice with them, ends up being clumsy and even his speed doesn’t save everything falling and your kid is just sitting on the side giggling at daddy, after that Peter joins another class, adult ballet lessons to be good enough to help your kids with theirs
also male ballerinas have super nice bodies? am I the only one who notices that? And you compliment Peter on it all the time and randomly mention he seems a lot more limber and flexible now, just an offhand comment that makes Peter’s face light up red causing him to trip crashing into a lamp
