“Really? That would be a first. I’m the son of Hades, Jason. I might as well be covered in blood or sewage, the way people treat me. I don’t belong anywhere. I’m not even from this century. But that’s not enough to set me apart.”

“Good luck. Now Mrs. O’Leary and I have to go.”

I’ve been wanting to make a comic of this scene for so long. Percy and Nico’s trip to the Underworld was always one of my favorites. I used to reread it over and over again. Now that we know about how Nico felt about Percy, though, it brings a whole new dimension to this scene. D:

Okay I’m sorry but am I the only one that was disappointed in Aphrodite when all the gods were fighting alongside their demigod children in BOO? Like she literally came out doing nothing but throwing flower petals. I was kinda hoping she would be raw af and ride in with battle armor screaming CMON PIPER LETS MAKE NAIL POLISH OUT OF THE BLOOD OF OUR ENEMIES

Did he visit you, after he stole your memory?
‘No,’ Bob murmured. His lower lip quivered. ‘The other one did.’
Percy’s thoughts moved sluggishly. ‘The other one?’
‘Nico.’ Bob scowled at him, his eyes full of hurt. ‘Nico visited. Told me about Percy. Said Percy was good. Said he was a friend. That is why Bob helped.’
‘But …’ Percy’s voice disintegrated like someone had hit it with a Celestial bronze blade. He’d never felt so low and dishonourable, so unworthy of having a friend.

This is terrible, really. It shatters my heart in million pieces.

I love Nico, he himself is so often forgotten that he never forgets about other people. He has a big heart, it’s just that he shows it to very few people.
