the aviator jacket

stephanie beatriz initially auditioned for the role of amy santiago…..can you even imagine anyone other than melissa fumero playing amy santiago??????? she was born for that role. furthermore can you imagine anyone other than stephanie beatriz in the role of rosa diaz?????? impossible. can u imagine anyone other than stephanie beatriz beating the shit out of every electrical device that ever stopped working for her? can u imagine anyone other than stephanie beatriz breezing into the precinct in the morning: leather jacket on, aviator glasses on, a cup of coffee in one hand and a motorcycle helmet in the other? can u imagine anyone other than melissa fumero being so wholly encompassed by her love for binders and tests? can u imagine anyone other than melissa fumero whipping out that baton and dead-legging some idiot perp that thought they could get the best of her?

can u imagine anyone other than stephanie beatriz somehow remaining stoic and deadpan yet fond and hopeful as she asks amy santiago to plan her wedding:

and can u imagine anyone other than melissa fumero being the most lovable and nerdiest dork when she accepts wholeheartedly:

tl;dr: stephanie beatriz and melissa fumero are blessings on this earth and their portrayals of rosa diaz and amy santiago on brooklyn nine-nine bring genuine light into my life

autistic!Nico

i have many Thoughts and ur gonna hear them whether or not you want to (and before anyone gets pissy, yes, I’m autistic and i’m not IDing out of my ability)

this is probs gonna be very disorganized bc i have no actual train of thought

  • Mythomagic was Nico’s S.I. for a long time
    • he got really fucking good at it too
  • the aviator jacket is a weight/pressure stim
  • his people skills are “rusty” because how was he supposed to know that no one wanted to know that.  its not like anyone told him
  • McDonald’s Happy Meals are a food hyperfixation
    • particularly the nuggets
  • prefers the shadows because why is the light so damn bright
  • cracks to the Underworld happen when he has a meltdown
  • is quiet a lot because he goes nonverbal
  • sensory overloads and backs away/straight up leaves
  • growing up he always knew that the other kids were different from him
    • they bullied him and picked on him because of this
  • separated himself from kids his age, only really connecting with Bianca
  • becomes distressed when Percy comes and turns his life upside down
    • “this isn’t how it’s always been, Bianca…”
    • “i know, but you can get through this.  I’m right here.”
  • cannot handle it when Bianca dies
    • she was the only thing that was still constant in the shifting of his life
  • years later Percy approaches Annabeth with concerns about how distant Nico always is
  • Annabeth watches and observes Nico and puts the pieces together
  • eventually she decides to talk to Nico about it, without being obvious about it
    • she explains it gently
  • Nico gets angry and storms off
  • eventually he calms down and starts to do research of his own
    • “…not like i sleep anyway…”
  • when he begins to research he starts to understand more about himself
    • “wait…that’s why I feel like that?”
  • eventually he becomes more confident in this fact about himself and talks to the group
    • “hey, can you guys maybe tone down….everything around me?  it hurts my head”
    • everyone is rly supportive and try their best to be gentle around nico
  • leo starts focusing on inventing new stim objects just for Nico
    • neither of them say anything about it, but nico will make small doodles of various things he knows that leo likes in payment
  • nico is touch averse until he is very comfortable
    • it took 3 months of dating will before he’d allow will to touch him
  • he wears similar outfits because he cant stand the feeling of most fabrics
    • sensory hell
  • will gives nico various tips and tools to help him when he starts to feel overloaded
    • “focus on something that’s stable, count backwards from 100,…”

and that’s…it for now

heroes of olympus moodboards: nico di angelo

“Then there was Nico di Angelo. Dang, that kid gave Leo the freaky-deakies. He sat back in his leather aviator jacket, his black T-shirt and jeans, that wicked silver skull ring on his finger, and the Stygian sword at his side. His tufts of black hair struck up in curls like baby bat wings. His eyes were sad and kind of empty, as if he’d stared into the depths of Tartarus—which he had.” 

nico loving the texture of his aviator jacket and looking desperately for something to replace it after it was destroyed.

reyna and hazel take him out to look for something but they end up enlisting the help of michael from the aphrodite cabin to sew something together for nico.

michael bringing him a literal scrapbook full of fabric swatches and nico just sitting on the ground and petting the right one in a state of utter joy.

After many years of traveling through the Delta Quadrant Janeway finally gives up reinforcing Starfleet Uniform standard. Now everyone on the ship goes about their usual business but in different outfits. Janeway gives orders in her sparkly white tuxedo while Tom Paris applies coordinates in an old fashion aviator jacket and goggles. B'Elanna figures out complex space-time equations while lounging in her pajamas all day in engineering. Seven of Nine discovers the fashionable comfort of a simple tank top with jeans. Chakotay decides to get in touch with nature and goes around the ship completely naked. The doctor now free of appearance standards gives up representing the typical humanoid form in favor of abstraction and edits his program so he’s nothing but a floating disembodied talking head. Only Tuvok and Neelix remain the same as the ship plummets further into unrestrained madness.

Portraits: Nico di Angelo and Will Solace

I wanted to test out a new style//color palette, and MAN I love it!! It was so much fun to get out of my comfort zone for once, and I have a feeling I’ll be sticking with this for awhile.

The setting is post-BoO, so Nico has his Camp Half-Blood shirt and a bead for being at camp for a year. I also feel that someone ((Piper and Hazel tbh)) would take him shopping to pick out a new aviator jacket at some point.

Will on the other hand, well, HE’S BEEN AT CAMP FOR AWHILE.
He also needs to stop having “such pretty eyes.”

…Nico’s words, not mine.
