So we now know that gods can have children with someone of the same gender.
What about powerful DEMIGODS though? In particular, everyone’s favourite ship.
It just seems to me that if Nico (who’s an insanely powerful demigod) and Will (who’s apollo’s son and a skilled medical practitioner) combine their powers, they should be able to do it.
CAN YOU IMAGINE THE KIDS. GRUMPY BLONDE DARK EYED HEALING ABILITIES ONES. HAPPY SUNSHINEY BLACK HAIRED BLUE EYED HELL RAISERS.
MY CHILDREN. MY CHILDREN’S CHILDREN.
My OTP is not canon, but I don't care and stop telling me otherwise
Well we all know about “Trials of Apollo” and stuff, Solangelo being canon, right? And I completely understand people fangirling (fanboying?) over it, screaming, drawing love, painting comics, writing fanfiction.
I’m actually pretty happy with it, too. I mean, a children’s, or a teenagers book with open gay stuff, how cool is that! And, yes, Solangelo is kind of cute, sunshine and darkness, softness and sarcasm, they are surely good together.
But, please, for Hades sake. STOP TELLING ME WHAT TO SHIP.
I deeply, truly ship Percico. I have zero hopes that they actually will be together, but that doesn’t stop me from creating a thousand AUs in my head. Percy and Nico has been my OTP since “Son of Neptune” came out, and that’s not going to change. I have my preferences with Percy over Will, and I have this kind of childish belief in “first true love”, when your first love should be happy and beautiful. At least in books. Or arts. Or just anything.
But ever since the “Hidden Oracle” came out, every time I say anything about Percico, every fan of the fandom, - at least those I’ve met - is deeply offended, and they are almost screaming in my ears like seagulls “SOLANGELO! CANON!!! SHIP SOLANGELO!!! ITS OFFICIAL!”
Calm down. I know.
But the thing is - I don’t give a fuck. I don’t care. I surely respect your ships and canon, I’m not going to argue and prove stuff, I just want to ship what I want.
Respect other ships, respect others opinions. Thank you.
How did we go from the first picture to now. ( I know there’s a 6 month difference but still). But Rick still need to hook me up with the development of solangelo. I need Nico’s development I need to know everything
actual canon scene from The Trials of Apollo, from Apollo’s POV
Will and Nico sat shoulder to shoulder, bantering good-naturedly. They were so cute together it made me feel desolate.
‘Nico,’ I said at last, ‘shouldn’t you be sitting at the Hades table?’
He shrugged. ‘Technically, yes. But if I sit alone at my table strange things happen. Cracks open in the floor. Zombies crawl out and start roaming around. It’s a mood disorder. I can’t control it. That’s what I told Chiron.’
‘And is it true?’ I asked.
Nico smiled thinly. ‘I have a note from my doctor.’
I’m not sure how a ship from a fledgling TV show that was only slightly good for two seasons before taking a complete and utter nosedive has managed to end up on my FOREVER OTP list, but here we are. they clawed themselves right into my heart with their red riding hood imagery and their brilliant soundtrack. I was there AT THE START when we had EVERYTHING AHEAD OF US. I remember when there was <250 fics for them on AO3. I remember when we were convinced Stiles was gonna go Canon Bi. we thought it was SO REAL! they could have had my LIFE-LONG DEVOTION! but NO. Jeff “no homophobia in this universe!” Davis COULDN’T EVEN GIVE US THIS ONE THING!!! IT’S NOT LIKE THE SHOW WAS THAT GOOD, JEFF!!!!! YOU DIDN’T HAVE ANY INTEGRITY TO LOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!
anyway I’m Sterek trash forever amen, thanks for asking.
ETA: ZUTARA, Eric/Godric, ~*~Sugarless Gum~*~, ARTHUR/EAMES, BOYD and RAYLAN – these additions that I am making two days after the fact are perfect examples of why I never answer OTP questions!!! I have a huge heart and it is FULL!!!!!!!
