Haunted House Solangelo

“Nico,” Will said, finally breaking the silence, “Are we just going to ignore the fact that there’s been noises at night in our kitchen for the last two weeks?”


Nico turned over to face him in the bed, eyes still closed, “Its probably just the wind,”


“What the hell is the wind doing with our cutlery?” Will hissed, as he heard more clinking and shuffling noises coming from downstairs.


It hadn’t been too long since Nico and Will had moved in together. Despite house hunting for so long, Nico had wanted to move into the dark bricked house they had first seen. and Will eventually agreed, even if it did look a bit terrifying.


They’d worked together to fix the plants and the front yard, added many more lights to make it look a less haunted house-y, but it was only the beginning.


A week after they moved in, they started hearing noises in the kitchen late at night. Or at least Will heard them, but Nico always looked unbothered so he didn’t mention them. It was two weeks later, that Will had finally brought it up.


Their room was dimly lit, thanks to the lamp that Will had gotten. Both boys laid in the bed, about to go to sleep when the noises had started again. There would be a shuffled sound downstairs, then the sound of their cutlery and sometimes, even footsteps.


“What do you want me to do?” Nico mumbled sleepily.


“Come on, get up,” Will whispered, “We need to get to the bottom of this


Nico sat up and rubbed his eyes, "You’re just being paranoid,”


However, Will was already out of their bed and waiting for him at the door. Begrudgingly, Nico followed him and they slipped into the corridor.


“Okay, quietly,” Will told Nico, as they sneaked halfway down the stairs. The noises seemingly got larger and this time, even Nico’s eyes widened.


“Come on, let’s check it out,” Will mumbled, but Nico held onto his hand.


“I refuse to be the white person in horror movies,”


Will rolled his eyes at Nico; a movement the dark haired boy could only catch because of the little light streaming through the window at the top of the staircase.


“Okay, together now,” Will said, “There’s no such thing as ghosts,”

He ended up being right. Just as they got off the stairs, the sound stopped. Will and Nico slowly peeked into the kitchen.

“Leo, what the fuck are you doing here?”


Their voices were synchronized, as the Hispanic boy froze in his tracks and looked at them with wide eyes. He looked disheveled, his hair sticking up everywhere, eyes wild and clothes dirty.


“Look…” he whispered hurriedly, as if he was hiding, “Be quiet… she might be here,”

“Who?” Nico frowned, but Leo shook his head.


“I mean… uh, nothing,”


“Seriously; why are you here?” Will asked, again.


“Well…Remember how you asked me to install a security camera in the house? Well, i decided to do it as a house warming gift,”


“Our party was two weeks ago!” Will complained, “And I wasn’t even being that serious. I could just get one from the store!”


“I know,” Leo said, “But I didn’t get you guys a gift then, so I decided to do it now. But I got hungry so I came here,”


“I am not going to believe that you’ve been doing this for the past two weeks,” Nico said, “What’s going on?”


Leo looked a bit sheepish, “Nothing….”

“Leo,” Will’s tone had an underlying warning.


“Fine… so you know how Piper and I are roommates? Well, Jason’s been coming over a lot lately, and they always… you know… and it got a bit too loud and inappropriate so I went and told them to stop… and sort of walked into… uh,”


“Okay, that doesn’t explain why you’re here?” Will turned on the light.


Nico squinted at the bright lights that surrounded them, “Will was scared out of his shit,”


Leo looked a bit scared, too, “Well, Piper is trying to hunt me down. I’ve been coming here to sleep for the past two weeks because your security sucks, no offense. And I actually did try installing a security camera!”


“And then you got hungry?” Will asked, folding his arms.


“Yes,” Leo admitted.


Nico rolled his eyes, “Will, ghosts may not exist, but annoying Hispanic boys do. Can we go back to sleep?”

This is so bad lmao I’m out of practice

Hogwarts Houses Pt 1

Percy: Slytherin (He has a dark, scary side and is very loyal to his friends, which is a very big feature in most Slytherins. He also holds a grudge and is smarter than people think, which also causes me to lean towards this conclusion)

Annabeth: Ravenclaw (I considered putting her in Slytherin at first because she is very cunning, but decided that her braniac and witty nature, as well clearly being good at riddles, makes me sort her into the house she usually gets, Ravenclaw)

Piper: Slytherin (Piper could easily fit in with any of the four houses. She is very smart and independent, which shows her Ravenclaw side. She is also brave and fearless, which shows her Gryffindor side. Her Hufflepuff side is exhibited by her modesty and kind nature. However in the end I went with Slytherin, mainly because her charmspeak abilities, which cause her to be able to be manipulative, and because of sneaky and slightly dark side that gets shown every once in a while)

Jason: Gryffindor (While a great character, he is mostly shown to be the perfect, brave, and selfless protagonist that Gryffindors are known for being, so this didn’t really need too much thinking. However, if I had to pick a different house for him, it would be Ravenclaw)

Hazel: Hufflepuff (she is kind and loyal and very forgiving. She was able to forgive her mother and give up Elysium for her, which is a very Hufflepuff thing to do. If she were not Hufflepuff, she might be Gryffindor or Ravenclaw)

Frank: Gryffindor (he is the best kind of Gryffindor, the Neville Longbottom kind. He is the underdog until he learns to believe in himself and boosts his own confidence. He is the one that the sorting hat puts there because it sees something that he couldn’t see himself yet)

Leo: Ravenclaw (while he is very brave and selfless like a Gryffindor, his mental strength and bumbling social ineptitude cause me to lean towards Ravenclaw. He is also good with machines and electronics, which screams Ravenclaw)

  • Percabeth: fall into Tartarus.
  • Jasiper: fall off the Grand Canyon.
  • Leo: falls on Calypso's island.
  • Frazel: ...
  • Frazel: ...
  • Frank: You know, we can...
  • Hazel: Don't think about it.
STOP SCROLLING

Do you remember in House of Hades, when Annabeth and Percy were in front of the Acheron river, and it was whispering to them about they’re murders and how they belong in there, with the rest of the killers?

Remember how even Annabeth wanted to jump in?

Think about how Percy must’ve felt in this scene. His fatal flaw being loyalty, all of the flashbacks of every monster he ever killed were probably horrifying to him, and there’s no way he didn’t think of Calypso. Or Zoe. Or Luke. Or Bianca. All of the people that Percy has lost were probably brought up again, and Percy was probably dead convinced that he could have saved their lives, he could have prevented their deaths, but he didn’t. He feels like he was a factor in their deaths. 

Now skip to Blood of Olympus, remember the scene with Percy and Jason battling Polyphemus, and when Polyphemus sprayed the acidic water Percy Walked In? Remember how he felt like he deserved it? 

Throughout the rest of the quest, those voices from the Acheron river were probably Constantly playing in his head. Not to mention him most likely feeling immensely guilty about leaving Bob and Damasen in Tartarus. 

Okay. Continue Scrolling. 

xpegasusuniverse  asked:

Do you like Harry Potter, if so what Hogwarts Houses do you think each of The Seven + Nico, Reyna, Will, Thalia, and Grover would be sorted into.

Um, Harry Potter is my shit so yes!

  • Percy- Hufflepuff, no doubt. His loyalty to his friends was the most deciding factor to put him in this house.  
  • Annabeth- Ravenclaw, duh. Do I really need to say more?
  • Jason- Gryffindor most likely. If you don’t think he’s brave, daring, and has chivalry, then bite me.
  • Piper- Slytherin. She’s a badass girl who shouldn’t be dealt with. I mean she is practically the definition of a Slytherin but she’s not evil.
  • Hazel- Hufflepuff. She’s very loyal towards her friends.
  • Frank- Gryffindor. Even though he’s shy and quiet, he is a natural born leader, making him braver than the average Hufflepuff.
  • Leo- Ravenclaw. I mean he built a ship of gods sakes! By himself! 
  • Nico- Slytherin. Always seen him as one.
  • Will- Hufflepuff. Literally the definition of one.
  • Thalia- Gryffindor, just like her brother.
  • Reyna- Slytherin. Do I really need to say more?
  • Grover- Hufflepuff. Loyal through and through. 

One thing I love about the heroes of olympus is that not only it makes us see gods a little bit more human, we also see the monsters as a little bit more human.

Like in The Lost Hero, when Medea explains why she was not a crazy bitch and she had reasons for killing her kids (Jason didn’t love and abandoned her).

And in The House of Hades, when Hazel says that she always saw the Minotaur as the victim (he was born a monster, not loved by his own parents and locked in a labyrinth for eternity).

I hope Rick show us the human side of other greek mithology characters in Trials of Apollo.

And I wish people would realize how much books can change kids minds and work it in their favor.
