50 Reasons TO LOVE NICO DI ANGELO
MY CHILD NEEDS MORE LOVE SO HERE I AM, WRITING FIFTY REASONS TO LOVE NICO.
Note: These are not in any order, the reasons are all random, also there will be spoilers and cursing.
1. LITTLE NICO IS SO CUTE. He protects his sister, “Don’t talk to my sister that way!” Plus he’s super nerdy and obsessed with mythomagic and pirates, HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE HIM?!
2. “You said you would protect her” Do really need to explain?
3. He’s so fucking powerful, but doesn’t use his powers for bad, or to show off (unlike some other demigods I know).
4. HE BROUGHT A WHOLE FUCKING SKELETON ARMY TO HELP IN THE IN THE TITAN WAR.
5. He discovered Camp Jupiter before anyone else.
6. He pretends not to know Percy, which must have been extremely hard for him to do, just to make sure that he doesn’t accidentally mess up the quest.
7. HE FOUND HAZEL IN ASPHODEL AND GAVE HER A NEW LIFE. WITHOUT NICO HAZEL WOULD STILL BE IN ASPHODEL.
8. His grammar is AMAZING.
9. He is so freaking polite.
10. At age fourteen, after already being in so much pain, he jumped into Tartarus. HE FUCKING JUMPED INTO TARTARUS. I REPEAT, HE FUCKING JUMPED INTO TARTARUS. HE JUMPED IN BECAUSE HE DIDN’T WANT ANYONE ELSE TO HAVE TO GO THOUGH PAIN TO CLOSE THE DOORS OF DEATH, SO HE WILLING DECIDED TO TAKE THE PAIN ONTO HIMSELF.
Plus, he saw Tartarus MUCH WORSE THAN PERCY AND ANNABETH, WAS BY HIMSELF, AND WAS ALREADY IN PAIN. AND HE JUMPED IN WILLINGLY. WILLINGLY.
11. According to the old myths, Ares, an immortal god at his full strength could barely survive being in the Bronze jar. NICO SURVIVED AT AGE 14 AFTER BEING TO FUCKING TARTARUS.
12. On top of everything, he had MORE PAIN ABOUT HIS FEELINGS FOR PERCY.
13. He’s gay, and it made me SO happy to FINALLY see an LGBTQ+ character in a kids book.
14. HE SHADOW TRAVELED A FUCKING FORTY FOOT TALL STATUE ACROSS THE WORLD.
15. HE IS STILL FIGHTING
16. Reynico and Jasico BROTP
17. SOLANGELO OTP. THIS SHIP IS BEAUTIFUL.
18. He is sane enough to continue to live, talk, and be pretty okay.
19. “I have a doctor’s note”
20. He has an awesome “Son of Hades” look
21. EVEN THOUGH HE HAS BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH PAIN HE STILL TRIES TO HELP PEOPLE. ANYONE BUT HIMSELF. HE ALMOST KILLED HIMSELF BY SHADOW TRAVELING SO MUCH, JUST TO HELP THE CAMPS.
22. Nico is an amazing name. So is di Angelo. It translates to Nico from the Angels, I think. Edit: Okay so apparently, according to the helpful @the-forgotten-traveller his name translates to Victory of the Angels or the Angel of Death, depending on where his first name was rooted from. (correct me if I’m wrong).
23. “With great power, comes great need to take a nap. Wake me up later”
24. He tries to comfort Reyna and defends her by killing that demigod roman asshole.
25. I’m pretty sure Will Solace had a crush on him.
26. “I’m a son of Hades, Jason. I might as well be covered in blood or sewage, the way people treat me.”
Despite that, he STILL HELPS THOSE PEOPLE TO POINT WHERE HE ALMOST KILLS HIMSELF HELPING PEOPLE WHO BARELY NOTICE HIM.
27. He speaks Italian.
28. He’s defends all of his sisters, Bianca, Hazel, and Reyna.
29. He’s sarcastic.
30. This line: “Not a word about the shirt. Not one word.”
31. He’s probably the most attractive 80-something year old ever.
32. He was THE FIRST DEMIGOD TO SURVIVE TARTARUS. EVER.
33. He listens to Techno Pop music.
34. He’s awesome at sword fighting.
35. He’s a classic “Looks like he could kill you but is actually a cinnamon roll”
36. He was the only one to talk to Hesita and Bob.
37. Nico talking to Bob was the only reason Bob helped Percy and Annabeth in Tartarus, and therefore Nico indirectly saved the entire world.
38. He’s the ghost king.
39. “Don’t call me Death Boy!”
40. “Significant annoyance, in your case.”
41. He’s can shadow travel.
42. He helped Apollo in ToA, even though the gods have been nothing but mean to him.
43. Fuck that. Not only did he help Apollo, he HELPED ALL HE GODS.
44. Hades is pretty cool.
45. Nico is so relatable.
46. He’s such an inspiration, I mean, he’s been though so much pain, and is still a hero.
47. He’s stronger than everyone else, because not only does he have to do normal DEMIGOD stuff, he also has SO MUCH PAIN.
48. He’s not stupid, quite the contrary actually. He’s extremely intelligent, AND he stopped going to school at age 10. Let me repeat that, HE STOPPED GOING TO SCHOOL AT AGE TEN. AND THE SCHOOL HE WENT TO WAS FROM THE 1930S.
49. HE IS PERFECT AND AMAZING AND GREAT. YOU CAN FIGHT ME ON THIS.
50. He’s fucking Nico di Angelo.
