When I was in high school, I had a Discman, and I would listen to the same album again and again and never get sick of it. Now I have 10000 songs in my pocket, and I can never find anything I want to listen to.
He wasn’t born deaf, but he was born with a sever immune deficiency, which kept him from being able to get vaccinated.
When he was seven, he caught meningitis and was in the hospital for 48 hours. No one was sure if he was going to make it.
Apollo completely ignored Zeus’s command not to interfere and showed up at the hospital.
Originally, Will had been blessed with a gift of music, but realizing that his hearing would never be as good as it was, Apollo retracted his gift, and replaced it with the gift of healing, and blessing that Will would never get sick again.
Once Will recovered, he started learning ASL, then speech therapy. He caught on pretty fast, and was soon signing like a champ, and so was his mom.
When the doctors offered Will’s mom the cochlear implant, she asked Will what he wanted.
He said he didn’t want the surgery. He could still hear enough with hearing aids, but he kind of liked being able to take them out. He liked who he was.
He missed it some days, but once he got to camp and learned who his father was and what he had done for him, he embraced it.
Because his eye sight has become so much better since losing his hearing, he was actually able to learn how to bend light at his will – an ability few Greek children of Apollo had, since Helios is technically the Greek sun god.
When young kids and teens are listening to their music too loud, Kayla will go up to them and say “If you keep listening to it that loud, you’ll go deaf.” And Will will come up behind her, pull his hair back from his ears, showing his hearing aids, and just say “she’s right.” It’s a pretty good way of keeping their cabin sort of quiet.
When Will gets annoyed with someone or doesn’t want to listen to them, he will look them dead in the eye as he slowly takes his hearing aids out. The first time he did this was the first time he heard his dad’s poetry.
Will’s name sign is the sign for “happy” with a W
Will’s name sign for Nico is literally “death boy”
Will taught Nico some ASL, and Nico learned a lot on his own. Nico also tried to teach Will some Italian.
“I’m learning a language for you, you can try to learn some of mine.”
“It is perfectly reasonable for a deaf person to ask their hearing friend to learn sings. It’s a little harder to argue that I should learn Italian.”
Will still learned a few key phrases, and how to write Italian decently.
When things got hectic in the infirmary, Will tends to turn his hearing aids off or take them out all together. He is then able to focus on what he needs done, tell who ever is helping him what he needs, and not have any unnecessary distractions. Chuck was delivered completely without Will being able to hear a thing.
Will has incredibly good vision, and is often used in Capture the Flag as the look out. That’s why he was positioned at Half Blood Hill the day of the battle. That and baby delivery is one hell of an experience.
When he is in his twenties, Jake Mason now a bio medical engineer, came up with a hearing aid that will fully restore hearing, but can also be turned down or turned off completely. It’s perfect for Will. While he fully embraces who he is, it is nice to hear his mom’s voice again.
Harry knows that when (Y/N) is sick, something is up, he knows that whenever this happens, it is not good. Throughout the two years they’ve been together, it was him in the relationship that would get sick all the time, and she knows how to take care of him in every situation, she learned over time. Attention, loving, care, is what he needs, but when she is sick, he does not know how to deal with the situation.
That morning he was surprised when she was not up before him, he woke up to the same old usual, sunlight sweeping through the curtains, but to his left, (Y/N) was there, which made him question the situation. He rubbed his eyes, and looked at her, she was snoring, a sign he knows when you’re nose is stuffy, and usually she never snores.
“Hey baby.” He told her, rolling on his side, caressing her cheek. Her eyes started to flutter open, and a smile was written on her face, she mumbled a ‘hello’, and turned the other way.
“Oh, don’t do that, it’s rude. What’s happening?” He told her, she rolled back, and looked at him, sitting up and grabbing a tissue on the side of their bed, quickly blowing her nose. That’s when he realised that she was not up for it today, that she was not like herself. He went back to rubbing her cheek, and smiling, she still has not answered his question.
“I think I’m sick, thanks babe, you gave your bug to me.” She told him. (Y/N) tried to pull herself together, and got up, pulling the duvet off their mattress. He started to laugh, she turned around, sharply, giving him a glare.
“What, I’m cold.” She stated, trying to fumble with putting her slippers on, without using her hands. Harry got up with her, wearing just his pajama pants, nothing else. She would never admit, but she enjoyed it. (Y/N) walked out of the bedroom, and down the stairs of their townhouse.
“You’re making breakfast.” She stated once in the kitchen, Harry following her.
“Ok, what do you want?” He asked, heading towards the fridge, she plopped herself down on the couch and turned the television on, watching whatever news network that was on last. She looked at him, the duvet covered half her head, and was wrapped across her body, she grabbed her glasses on the side table of the couch and looked at him.
“Just a cup of tea, you can make whatever you want.” She told him, continuing to watch telly. He nodded, doing his business in the kitchen, occasionally talking to her.
“(Y/N), love, are you ok? You are never sick, the time I’ve known you, you’ve been sick once, and it was just the cold. You blocked me out, since it was the beginning of our relationship, but still, I’m worried.” He told her. He knows whenever she even has the slight symptoms of a sickness, she would just block away Harry, and keep to herself.
“Yup, just need some pills and several cups of tea, I’ll be better and done with this tomorrow.” She told, taking the cup of tea from Harry and continuing watching the television, not paying attention to Harry who took a sit next to her. He had no idea how to act towards her, therefore he just watched from afar.
Minutes later, she got up, Harry was instantly worried, she gave him a ‘what?’ look and went to a cupboard grabbing some pills and sitting back again.
“I never get sick and when I do, I’m really sick.” She simply said, consuming the advil, turning to him, smiling, he simply nodded, not knowing what to do in that situation. Of course he was worried, but it was hard for him to process it!
“It was one thing that my mum was proud of, her daughter was never getting sick.” She said, he knew about the troubles she has with her mum, but he never pressured her into saying anything.
“Have I ever told you that my mum and dad wanted me to become a doctor, or a lawyer, something fancy and poch, like them. Yeah, well I screw that and became a journalist, who lives under her boyfriend’s roof since rent is too expensive and it barely goes by with my hourly pay, like what am I supposed to do when older?” She says looking at him, eyes wide.
“Babe, don’t worry, it’s fine, it’ll all be fine.” He said, trying to bring her into a hug, she accepted, head under his chin.
“Please don’t leave me,” she says looking at him, “I’m poor and sick.”.
“I’ll never leave you, love, I love you too much.” He said, she nodded, nose sniffling.
“I love you too, gorgeous.” She simply said, watching the telly, eventually changing the channel.

he had heard the worst nonsense from his friend’s mouth, Seven managed to think
of something worse. And he had literally arrived a minute ago. “Pardon?”

eyes. “He was sick. I only warmed him

responsibility to make sure he’s well taken care of!”
We’re both adults! I’m only a few years older than both of you! And we’re NOT

ex-hacker ignored him and kept saying things to push him out of the house
towards his brother, making him more flustered.
Forget about Seven, the chaos in the house is more important-

made sure to fill his shopping basket full of sweets. How his brother could eat
those gross chips, he would never know. Maybe he should get something healthy
to avoid becoming sick again. Waking up like that was the most embarrassing
thing ever. Stupid Vanderwood, who stayed calm and collected while he freaked
out. Stupid brother for making fun of him. He was not in love, damn it!
An older woman in the next aisle kept staring
at him, making him nervous. When he wanted to head to the cash register, she
suddenly blocked his path.

tried to sidestep her, but she got closer, her gaze predatory.

about those words made him freeze. She touched his right arm and it was as if
she knew he was hiding something there under his sweater. Thoughts rushed into
his head before he could stop them. All at once her eyes turned green and he
was small and helpless. Images of a dark room flashed before him, remembering
with the scent of iron, the touch of unwanted hands on his skin, the pain oh God make it stop please-

be, slowly pulling him back to reality. A familiar comfortable warmth chased
away the wooziness and feelings of pain. He looked to his side and saw Vanderwood
who held him close, hugging him to his side.

deep breath as his muscles relaxed.

what had just happened, he jumped away from the older man, nearly dropping his
basket. The temperature suddenly went up a degree or two, his face turning
redder than his hair.

young man his space by staying behind him, but to his surprise, the moment he
slowed down, Saeran did as well. At some point they walked next to each other,

When they got back, Seven faced them with the biggest smile. “And? How was your date?”
And just like that, Saeran vanished from sight, running into his room and locking the door.
You were sitting in an extra little sitting room, and You had just finished checking up on all of your college classes, and making sure you had completed all of the homework, when your mother let out a shrill call, “Y/N- phone!”
“Make sure you don’t listen in this time,” You call back a you reached over to the still-operable landline- that your mother refuses to get rid of -with your free hand. I pick it up and press the button, “Hello, Y/N L/N speaking.”
You immediately stop typing on your laptop and set it aside on the couch, “Jason! How are you, I saw a little bit of the situation on the TV - are you okay?”
He seemed taken aback for a moment, but cleared his throat and said, “Yeah, Yeah, a little bruised up, but I’m fine.”
You let out the breath, “Good, good, I’m glad, I knew you could probably take care of yourself, but still.”
Jason was silent for a moment, and you didn’t know wether to break the silence or wait until he felt like talking, and before you could make your decision he spoke, “So, I, uh, found your cellphone today.”
You blinked in surprise, “Really? You did? I ah, mean Thank you, but, uh, when in the world did you find time to find it?”
Jason was smirking, you could tell by his tone, “Oh, just found a little time, no big deal. When can I get it too you, I figured you need it.”
You nodded, “yeah, say I’ve got work in the morning, would you like to come with me to-“
The phone started ringing and You muttered under your breath when you noticed it was your boss, ‘hey it’s my boss, I should really take this… could I put you on hold real quick?”
“Thanks I’l make it quick, I promise.”
You quickly put Jason on hold before accepting the call from your boss, Steph who is quick to ask, “Oh, my gosh I saw on the news about your Uncle’s party- are you okay?”
You laughed, “Yeah Steph, I’m fine, just surprised you haven’t asked yet.”
Steph squealed, “Oh- M-Gee, about Jason Wayne meeting his soul mate, I was gonna, do you know who the mystery woman is?”

New video for those who happen to give a F*ck. Flu season is passing but a ton of folks are still catching Colds and going to conventions getting Con Crud. And being sick is never any fun so I decided today to give you 4 steps to prevent colds, Flus, and illnesses of any sort. So pay attention today
-Sick Omegas like to wear multiple layers of their Alpha’s clothes, it helps keep them warm while also soothing them by being full of the Alpha’s scent
-Alphas don’t let their Omegas do very much when they are sick, any chores or errands they will do themselves to ensure that their Omega is able to rest and recover
-A sick Omega being really crabby and constantly criticising the way their Alpha is doing things until eventually the Alpha runs out of patience and just scoops them up, puts them in their nest and then curls up behind them and tells them to go to sleep, holding them close while running their fingers through the Omega’s hair and crooning softly until they finally relax
-A sick Omega being too tired to shower so their Alpha fills the tub with hot water and bubbles and insists they take a bath together so the Omega won’t fall asleep and drown, the Omega agrees because they know the bath will include hair washing, shoulder massages, little neck kisses and praises because their Alpha is always very doting when they get sick
-Naturally Alphas always feel bad when their Omega is sick but secretly they kind of enjoy it because they adore having their mate so dependent on them
-An Alpha who is a terrible cook trying to make food for their sick Omega but something burns and the smoke detector is going off and their sleepy Omega wanders in, looks at the remainder of the burnt goop and very “kindly” points out that the food will just make them sicker before grabbing a banana and going back to bed…the whole time mentally swooning about how sweet their Alpha is for trying
-An Alpha constantly running blankets, hoodies, and socks through the dryer to ensure that their sick Omega is kept as warm as possible
-Omegas demand a lot of cuddling and naps, but even more so when they are sick, if they want to cuddle they will force themselves out of bed to find their Alpha, silently drag them away from whatever they are doing, pull them down into the nest and just collapse on top of them to keep them from getting up again, the Alphas never mind though
-Sick Omegas become very restless if they aren’t allowed to be up and doing things so their Alphas will keep giving them little gifts to keep them busy and relaxed like movies, books and puzzles
-Lazy movie days with a lot of hot drinks and long naps and the Omega repeatedly saying “we are NOT making out right now you idiot, you’ll get sick too”
