It’s like a woman has to be either gay or straight no matter what. She might be engaged to a woman but have an affair with a man so people will automatically be like “so is she a lesbian or straight??” Even in the LGBTQ community, the B in there is like it doesn’t exist at all.
You know how the famous Ancient Greek poet and lyre musician Sappho is seen as having a romantic relationship with her female pupils but in her poems she expresses her love for a man and people do not know whether she’s a complete lesbian or not and it’s like everyone has heard of the word bisexual but no one gives enough of a shit to even consider it to be real.
Even fucking Piper Chapman from orange is the new black, the only labels she receives is being either a lesbian or a heterosexual character. She is in love with both a woman and a man but she’s not bisexual?? She just HAS to be either a lesbian or straight as though the spectrum is as simple as that, oh good lord stop with this bullshit
Still mostly asleep, Neil rolls onto his left side, bringing himself further into Andrew’s space. He snakes out a cautious hand, expecting to run into King’s soft fur where he often sleeps in between them. Instead, he is met with empty space, right up until his hand accidentally brushes Andrew’s ribs. This incites only a small flinch, whereas years ago, Andrew would have startled awake on high alert, reaching under his pillow for an ever-present knife. The progress makes Neil smile.
He continues his search in the dark for his absent cats, as he has now also noticed the lack of Sir’s weight at the bottom of the bed. He sits up, eyes flitting to the door that they now leave cracked open at night. It is almost completely ajar.
“Hi,” comes a small voice from the far side of the room, making Neil jump slightly in surprise.
He sits up and looks over at the small armchair in the corner to see Piper curled up with both missing cats asleep on her lap. She has dragged in her favorite navy blue blanket, a gift from Renee the previous Christmas, and made herself a rather comfortable-looking nest.
Neil glances to the clock on the bedside table. It reads 5:47am.
“Hey, Pipes,” he croaks out. “What’s up? Is everything okay?”
“Mhmm. Couldn’t sleep. Too excited.” That excitement is clear in her voice, but she’s trying to keep quiet so the three still sleeping creatures in the room won’t be disturbed.
They discover that her efforts were in vain as a muffled, “Why would you possibly be excited for school?” comes from beneath the covers somewhere to Neil’s left. Andrew pulls himself up into a sitting position, mirroring Neil and moving closer to him, their shoulders touching as they gaze at the little girl who has unintentionally woken them both.
“Daaaaad, you know how important a good education is these days.”
“Yeah okay, sure, but you’re six years old. Ivy Leagues aren’t going to judge your grades from kindergarten,” Andrew insists. “And furthermore, it doesn’t really matter, because any day now the zombie apocalypse is going to make higher education obsolete.”
Neil can’t hold back his smile as the two launch into the argument they have at least once a week. She may be six years old, but she’s smarter than the two of them combined.
Hey you're bird friend is beautiful! I've wanted cockatiels for years and might finally get a pair in a few months if I can! Any tips/info you want to share?
Aw thank you! It’s great that you’re finally able to get a pair of tiels, they’re such cute and fun birds to have. Piper is the first bird I’ve had but I’ll give a little advice to what I’ve learned so far.
1. You have to be patient with any bird. When I first got Piper he never let me touch him and it was difficult to teach him to step up. Patience is key. The more you work with your bird and talk to them the more they’ll be used to you and realize you’re their best friend
2. (This goes along with #1.) Never yell or pull away quickly if you’re bird bites you. I’ve never had a real issue with Piper biting but I do know what being loud is just like rewarding a bird after they do something. Yelling=Attention to them. If your bird bites you, put them back in the cage. Try your hardest not to yell. Putting them in the cage means no attention and what they did doesn’t give them a reward.
3. I recommend having birds on a pellet and vegetables&fruits diet. Seeds aren’t good for them and can decrease their health over the years. Piper has always been on a pellet diet so I really don’t know how to convert a bird that has only been eating seeds to a pellet diet.
4. Reward your bird with millet if they’ve been good! I don’t know any bird that doesn’t like millet so it’s the perfect treat to reward positive behavior.
5. Cockatiels are very dusty birds, so they need to be bathed at least once a week. I taught Piper to bathe by using millet and encouraging him to go into the water. Once he got in the water I would “flick” little droplets onto him with my fingers. It didn’t take Piper long to take a little bath. I now bathe him with a spray bottle because he refuses to step into the pie dish 😂
6. Take your bird out for at least an hour and a half a day. Piper is pretty much out any time I’m home so he gets some extra attention ;)
7. Make sure to have at least 3 toys in the cage and interact with your bird when they’re in or out of the cage so they don’t get bored or lonely.
8. This tip is very important and sometimes overlooked by bird owners. Get different sized perches for your bird! Sitting on the same sized perch is bad for their feet!
9. I recommend changing the water every day to every other day. If you wouldn’t drink it they shouldn’t!
10. If other people live with you, make sure you let your bird get used to them to. If you’re the only one playing with your bird they will be aggressive to other people which isn’t good.
11. If you don’t know if your bird can eat a certain thing, look it up. Some foods like avocado are very deadly to cockatiels.
There are probably a few things I’ve left out so feel free to ask anything else!!
AU where the media really follow Piper, and obviously latch onto her relationship with Jason. So during an interview, she gets asked about him, and as a joke answers, “He’s my gal pal.”
Using charm speak, ofc, so in the tabloids, he’s always “Piper McLean’s Gal Pal”
And he gets asked about it, and like it was a joke, but he didn’t know, so Jason tells the press something like,
“Well, I think Piper called me that to make an important point about heteronormativity. You see, because we’re a male/female couple you assumed that we had a romantic relationship, when if we were the same sex, given the same evidence, you would have assumed we had a platonic relationship.” (And he just keeps going)
And Piper’s watching Jason’s interview, cracking up, but also like nodding along, because it makes a nicer story than her primary motivation of “fuck with the media”, and that all of her rants about women’s rights really taught him something
Also in this AU, they get married and Jason takes Piper’s last name, and there’s just a boatload magazines with pictures of Jason grinning with “Mr. McLean” or “The New McLean” printed on the cover, and a quote reading like, “I’m just so happy she actually married me, I’m just amazed.”
And again he’d get asked about changing his name instead of her’s, and he tells them something about the system and how it reflected a time when women were property, etc.
Piper, again nods along, when her real main reason was Piper Grace sounded dumb but Jason McLean didn’t.
Hey I saw that your inbox was open! So how about the companions react to Sole asking "Will you hold this?" And holding their hand. (don't judge my fluff obsession) Thank you! 😎👌🏽💕
OK, its finally done! Thank you for asking! This was a lot of fun to write. (No judgement here!) A big HUGE thanks to @mustinvestigate for editing and all that jazz. It wouldn’t have been half as good without their help.
Snackcakes, I think this was what you had in mind, but I did do a romanced Deacon and Nicky, because well, they need some lovin’, okay? ;) I hope you like it, and for everyone else, my inbox is OPEN and I would love to write some more reacts!
Deacon blinked behind his dark sunglasses, the action catching him off-guard. Their hand was sure and firm, rough calluses brushing the back of his hand. When was the last time someone had looked at him like this? Instinct telling him to run away, he opened his mouth with a quip at the ready.
“Anything for you, sugar,” he replied, blessing the fact that his eyes were hidden. Instincts could take the back seat; SoSu was different.
Now, it was SoSu’s turn to blush, but mirroring their companion, they shot back.
“Oh, really? Not too heavy for you? Because I might have some work later that’ll have you sore for miles, honey.”
“I can handle anything you throw at me, doll.”
This continued for a while, eventually dying off into other topics, but for some reason neither of them let go.
“Uh, you got something for me?” Nick asked, glancing down at their intertwined hands questioningly.
SoSu’s hands were warm, wonderfully warm, and Nick’s nerve complex picked up even the small cut on their middle finger.
“It’s just that, Nick, nothing else,” they said, unwavering.
Nick couldn’t meet their stark human eyes as he slithered out of the grip. It wasn’t right. SoSu was wonderful, the best partner he’d ever had. They couldn’t be wanting anything more than they already shared. Not with him.
“You don’t want that, SoSu.” The sooner it was said, the better.
“What if I do, Nick?” they asked, bumping his fedora up so that he couldn’t hide from their gaze.
Nick pondered the information, staying silent for a long time. SoSu just sat down beside him, and waited, fiddling with the fabric on their sleeve.
He glanced over to where they were sitting. They were nervous, that much was clear. They were fidgeting, and not looking at him, their target of uneasiness. His lip twisted as he contemplated the next part. Nick had honed this skill, and it had saved his life many times over, but he hated using it on his friends. He went into stand-by mode and reviewed his recent memories.
There they were. Smiling as they laughed at one of his witty comments. Wincing in pain as they suffered a bullet wound from a trigger-happy raider. He tried to focus in on the little moments. The ones that didn’t make sense. He wondered at what he found, and was amazed he didn’t see the signs sooner. They were all there, clear as day. The question was, what did he do with it?
When Nick rose from his brume of thought, he only asked SoSu one question.
“Are you sure?”
Nick’s golden eyes pierced through SoSu and when they replied, his extensive investigative skills wouldn’t let him believe any different than their complete honesty.
SoSu loved him, and damn him if he didn’t love them, too.
“Ma’am/Sir, I am not sure why this is necessary for our current operations,” X6 said, making a point of not looking at their hands.
“Come on, Sixie, you know this is completely necessary,” SoSu said, looking up at him with that irritating glint in their eyes.
“Please do not refer to me in that manner, Ma’am/Sir” X6 replied, heat creeping up his neck. “I need both of my hands to -”
SoSu leaned up and kissed him, and X6 froze. But also, he stopped talking…at least until their lips left his.
“I find that- that I do not find these actions completely unnecessary.”
“Blue, uh, that’s real cute,” Piper sputtered. “R-real cute.”
SoSu smiled and squeezed her hand, sending chills running up her spine. Now, Piper could handle a whole basket of angry people, been threatened more times than she’d taken breath. However, when faced with the trials of flirting, she was no match for - well, anyone.
“Come on, Pipes, got nothing for me? A witty comment? Well-time sting?”
“No, but…” she said, rearranging their hands. “Are you always this hot? Your hands are on fire.”
“No! No, I just meant - the temperature! Not that I mind, but - Oh, you know what I meant,” she finished, ungracefully.
Piper’s cheeks burned hotter, but she didn’t say anything more to avoid embarrassing herself further. What she didn’t say was that she enjoyed holding SoSu’s hand, but she wouldn’t open her mouth anymore, so she just relished the moment, memorizing the feeling of their hands intertwined.
“Oh, yes, what is it that you are giving me?” Curie said, bringing their hands up to her face. “Is this some kind of metaphor?”
SoSu giggled as they watched Curie puzzle over what the gesture meant. The synth looked quizzically at their hands and SoSu as she tried to understand.
“Will you hold this…” Curie said slowly. “Will you hold - Oh! Is zis one of those lines that Madame Cait loves to use? What did Monsieur Deacon call it? ‘Smooth moves’?”
At that, SoSu burst out in laughter, having to retract their hand from Curie’s grip to hold their stomach. Curie fell deeper into her well of confusion.
“Oh, SoSu, I still don’t understand your human mating rituals. It is such a complex thing.”
SoSu just winked and said: “Don’t worry. I’ll teach you.”
“Uh, very funny, boss,” he said, sliding out of the embrace. “You’re getting almost as savvy as me.”
SoSu flexed and inflexed the hand that had just been holding MacCready’s.
“Oh ho ho, little man’s got a big ego.”
“Little man? Little man? I can shoot better than you on any day of the week.”
“Doesn’t say anything about your stature, Mac.”
“Pfft, like you’re any better, SoSu.”
“Oh, shut up.”
“What the hell is a mungo?”
“Uh, General?” Preston said. “We need to focus on this settlement.”
SoSu twisted their lips up in an amusement as Preston chattered on about the location of the settlement, the grounds surrounding it, and finally marked it on the map of their Pip-Boy.
“Be careful, SoSu, this is a particularly nasty den of raiders.” he said, and they went on their way, just giving Preston a quick wave before heading off down the broken road with Dogmeat at their heels.
As Preston went on his rounds he mulled over their last conversation. Something felt off about their conversation. Had he told them everything they need to know? No, that couldn’t be it, he went over it all at least twice. They had known all they needed. What was it then?
He held his laser rifle close and absently rubbed the cold metal as he searched for anything out of the ordinary. His hands touched the glass of his firearm that was slightly warm from the laser stream. It was then when he remembered what had been wrong- no, right, about that conversation.
He tightened his grip on the weapon and thought that maybe, if he was brave enough, he might see if that offer was still open.
“Hey, hey, new kid on the block’s got style. Like it on you, SoSu,” he said, smirking.
SoSu opened their mouth, gaping at him for a moment, before shaking their head and smiling.
“Should’ve known I was messing with the master,” they added, looking at the ground. “Got myself into a duel with a the great John Hancock - who ever will win?”
Hancock raised his eyebrows and reached in his pocket for an inhaler of Jet. After taking a long drag, his eyes rested on SoSu.
“Ok, sunshine, you’re on,” he said, swinging their arms up and down. “HEY, GOODNEIGHBOR, I’M IN LOVE! I’M IN LOVE WITH THIS PERSON RIGHT HERE!”
SoSu blushed furiously, looking around and swatting Hancock on the arm, but all they got was a few annoyed glances and a small smile from Daisy.
“See? I win,” he said, eyes rearing for a challenge.
“Okay, okay, hotshot, I can do better…” they said and thought for a moment before yelling:
“JOHN HANCOCK IS A PUNK BITCH!”
A small smattering of applause followed.
“Soldier?” Danse said, confused. “Do you have something for me?”
SoSu rolled their eyes and let go of the Paladin’s hand. They were back at the Prydwn, and had changed out of his power armor, intending to turn in for the night. Before he had though, SoSu had caught up with him, and just as he was detailing their mission for the next day, they interrupted and asked him to hold… Nothing?
“Oh, forget about it, Grognak,” they said. “Finish telling me what you had.”
Danse looked at her one more time, trying to figure out the meaning of what she’d just called him, before he shook his head and continued his schpiel. When he finished, he gave them a quick salute and turned away, intending to head for his quarters. Something odd struck him - it was the feeling of their hands against his, warm and alive, nothing like the cold steel that hugged him day and, more often than not, night.
He turned around to glance at their figure turning the corner. Only to see them looking right back.
“What’re you doin’?” Cait said, flustered.
“A little known thing called flirting.” SoSu said, smiling at Cait with their signature candidness. “I mean, I have studied under the best. Just being practical.”
“Well, I… umm…”
Sure, Cait knew how to flirt. Hell, she flirted easier than she breathed most days. Hearing it from SoSu though, that was a whole world away from what she practiced, edging into something she wasn’t sure she was comfortable with. At the same time, her heart pounded in her chest, a new energy running through her that she had never felt before.
“You know that you’re safe with me? Right, Cait?” SoSu said, breaking away from the contact. “If you’re not ready for this, I won’t -”
At this moment, Cait glanced around. Seeing no one on the road around them, she hesitantly reached, and felt her hand covered once again by the sure grip. Her heart pounded a little less now, and she felt the rest of her thoughts and worries fade away, if just for the moment.
If this is what love feels like, I think I’ve damn near found it.
“Yes! Human wants to test strength!”
“With brothers, we count on one -”
“Strong, stop -”
“JOKE. IT WAS A JOKE.”
Mistress/Mister is a strange human. He barked and licked their face before scouting ahead for more danger.
So I adore this blog (and like 900% of all other FO4 reaction blogs but this one too) and I was wondering if you'd do romanced companions (including Nick, Deac, Longfellow, the whole gang) not thinking that they're good enough for Sole and being convinced otherwise? Pretty please?
Ah yes, sad things my specialty *evil grin*
Cait: She knew she wasn’t good enough for Sole when she was an addict but Cait thought it would go away once she was clean. But it didn’t. She still wasn’t good enough for them, she could improve herself in every possible way but she’d never live up to their legacy and she’d never be deserving of their love.
Curie: From the beginning Curie had been perplexed by Sole’s interest in her. She’s not even a real person, just a personality matrix pretending she’s alive. They deserve so much more.
Danse: Once Danse found out he was a synth he knew Sole would leave him. How could anyone stay with such a low life creature? How could anybody care for him, he who got replaced without even knowing?
Deacon: Deacon doesn’t deserve Sole in the least. Not only is he an old man, far too old for them anyways. He lies. He lies and lies and Deacon has lost track of whether he can stop anymore. Nobody deserves that, least of all Sole.
Gage: The old raider couldn’t believe Sole was interested in the first place, never mind that they continued to be interested after the initial haze wore off. He’s not interesting, he’s not smart, he has nothing going for him and yet, they stay.
Hancock: Hancock tells Sole every day that he doesn’t deserve them but he doesn’t think they know how serious he is. He doesn’t know if they realize that they’re alive. They’re so alive and they’re wasting their time with someone who should be dead. Who’s essentially half dead. He doesn’t know why they stay but he’s too selfish to leave.
Longfellow: Longfellow couldn’t believe it when they expressed interest and continued to be surprised every day when he wakes up and they’re still there. He’s old, his bones ache and he hardly takes care of himself but there they are, everyday, still loving him. He doesn’t deserve it. He’s never deserved someone like this.
MacCready: MacCready doesn’t know how this happened. How he found someone this perfect, who cares for him and Duncan, who’s fought along side him and who’s helped him so much in such a short time. He’s so in awe of them and he doesn’t know why they stay with such a despicable guy. He ran with the Gunners for goodness sake, he’s scum.
Nick: Nick can’t believe they’re interested. It’s not that he doesn’t crave their affection but he has discouraged them at every step of the way. He can’t let them throw their life away staying with him. They need someone who will grow old with them, someone who can give them children, a real person.
Piper: Piper is a shit disturber. She always has to watch her back and sometimes she gets into arguments just to be inflammatory. She’s trouble and always has been. She has no clue why Sole wants to be with her. Why they chose her out of all the other people in the Commonwealth but she won’t send them away. Even though she doesn’t deserve them she doesn’t want to be lonely anymore.
Preston: Preston is broken, damaged. He doesn’t know why Sole stays with him throughout the nightmares and the flashback at overly loud explosions. With his guilt and pain. They deserve someone whole who can give them what they need, not him.
X6-88: X6 has never understood Sole’s attraction to him. He’s a damn robot. He’s hardly even real. X6 thinks Sole should be with someone who can provide them with offspring. Someone who can better them and who becomes better by being with them. He’s not human enough to provide Sole a real relationship and has no idea why they’ve chosen him.
All Orange is the New Black fans should actually be really thankful that Larry is made out to be such an ineffectual, dishwatery lameass.
Because in real life, Piper Kerman’s husband stayed with her, making regular, devoted visits on a weekly basis, and was a successful editor and writer in his own right. And of course, the real Piper and Larry are still together.
So we could have gotten a fictionalized version of Larry that was a long-suffering, idealized saint. He could have been Piper’s strength and the source of her eventual literary success, which he was (at least partly) in real life. This Larry would have been even more overbearing and dominant in the story line, and would have really bogged down a show that’s supposed to be about the suffering and quiet strength of its incarcerated women characters.
By making Larry a whiny loser, OitNB puts the focus where it belongs: on the women in prison. As much as we may hate the Piper of the show, she is a fully independent, strong character in her own right. Part of what makes OitNB so refreshing is that all the women have strong, agentic personalities and most of the dudes are hapless douches. We could have gotten a Larry that was an emotional savior. Thank god we have a Larry that sucks and doesn’t save the day.
“I’ve seen the way you look at me when you think I don’t notice.”
“You should ask her out.”
Attention split between watching the gnarled
bartender prepare his drinks and monitoring the scrawl of college football
scores on the flatscreens overhead, it takes Percy a moment to realize that
comment had been directed at him. He blinks and glances to his left, where
Piper McLean is now leaning against the bar with one elbow, a look that he
would classify as meddlesome on her face.
“Sorry,” Percy replies, unsure if he’d heard her
correctly. “I should ask who out?”
Piper rolls her eyes. “Annabeth, of course. Who
else would I be talking about?”
Almost automatically, Percy looks over to the
pool tables, where their group had settled earlier. Annabeth’s golden curls are
a beacon in the bar’s dim lighting, spilling down her back instead of up in her
usual ponytail, effortlessly drawing him in. God, she looks good tonight — hair
down, cheeks flushed rosy with victory and laughter, in a blue dress that seems
to get shorter and tighter as the night goes on.
On a good day, Percy can barely keep his eyes
off her, but tonight? It’s a struggle to look away.
He’s pathetic, honestly, pining after the woman he’s madly attracted to like this. Almost as bad as some
of the kids he teaches.
“I’m not going to ask her out,” Percy grumbles,
allowing himself to watch Annabeth for one more moment before turning his attention
back to Piper. He takes a long pull on his beer. “Why would I do that?”
Hi! Since you really really love Jason and Piper won't you please tell me your take on the whole Hera Making Them fall for each other and them just kinda accepting it after they got their memories back? I mean, I totally ship it, but that part has always made me uncomfortable... (Also sorry this isn't part of your ask thing RN, but it just occurred to me you might've thought of a great explanation here...)
hey there :D i’m not too great at explaining things, but i’ll give it a shot.
first up! hera didn’t make them fall for each other, they did that on their own throughout the books. what hera did do: she planted fake memories in piper and leo’s head to (mostly) entice them towards him, as a friend and as a crush. kind of like bait, to keep them together, except that all backfired when annabeth pointed out to piper “do you actually know him?” turns out, she did not. neither did leo. but they accepted him anyway, because they had glimpses from fake memories of what he could be: a good friend. piper, sure, wanted him to be something else–but she never made him feel obligated to fulfil any of that. jason spent the majority of TLH telling himself “oh god, she’s so cute, and nice, and badass. but i can’t crush on her or lead her on, because i have no memories and that would be a huge dick move”. likewise, piper had moments of thinking “i wish it could be a thing, but it won’t be, i have bigger issues to worry about: and he owes me nothing.” (leo spent all of that time looking between them like “y’all are losers. are ya gonna kiss? no? good, saves me the bother of pretending not to notice lmfao”)
(also, it should be said: they didn’t hold him up to the standard of fake jason. they let him grow into his own person at his own rate in the books.)
as for the uncomfortable part: yeah, that part always peeved me off, too & they’re my otp. :/ i 100% see what you mean about not knowing how that particular roadblock was cleared. a huge part of that discomfort for me was not knowing how they even got together. that they were an official Thing was sort of explained in one line, from leo’s pov (in……the quest for buford, i think???) and it’s never even explained what happened with jason’s memories. did they come back all at once? did he remember things in bits and pieces??? did they get together before or after he remembered ??? none of that gets explained and it’s. really fucking annoying. rr has kind of consistently let me down in regards to developing the new cast, particularly jason (and frank/hazel/piper)’s relationships and, surprise surprise, his character. there’s no way around it and you have to admit, a lot of relationships (romantic, especially) were mentioned without proper elaboration, even ones that had been building up slowly through whole books (TLH/jasiper, SoN/frazel, HoH/caleo–you get the drift).
you’re going to have to take it with a grain of salt and decide for yourself how you think they got together. it depends VERY MUCH on how you see the characters/what you think their personalities are really like, and what actions are believable of them. in TLH, neither piper nor jason were very vocal about developing crushes on each other–which was understandable, considering their awkward situation. they admire each other a lot in their povs, get jealous over silly things involving each other, and even leo starts to notice whatever they are, outside the fake memories, is slowly becoming quite real. piper never pressures jason to like her back, jason blushes a shit ton because he has a lil puppy crush, and they’re adorably supportive of each other. in MoA u can see them easily talking their problems out, and just because they’ve had one conversation about it, it doesn’t mean that they stop reassuring each other on the issue bothering them (aka jason repeating “i told you, you’ve got nothing to be jealous of/we’re a team” to piper, and piper repeating “you don’t have to be invincible all the time/we’ll take turns saving each other”). obviously the memories are an ISSUE but they have shown they can work through it.
their entire relationship is totally up for interpretation. liiiiiike…….from a completely platonic standpoint, too, you can’t deny that they’re very very close friends. always on each other’s teams, putting each other ahead of themselves, and keeping each other grounded/happy. the fake memories may have affected them until jason got all his memories back, but it didn’t stop them from developing a pretty strong bond in between all that. i, personally, can’t see them getting together until jason was absolutely sure he wanted to be with her, made that choice on his own, and they were both comfortable enough with each other to think “yeah, this is real”
i’m still pissed we never got to see how they got together. things like who made the first move, how did they ask, how long did it take?? those things give relationships a shit ton more depth. but uh. we got vague mentions instead :/
Prompt: ‘That’s the cheesiest pick up line I’ve ever heard’
Description: Will Solace decides to try out his flirting skills on you.
Warnings: None, really. Apart from Will’s bad flirting.
You sat at the Camp fire with your siblings, you had recently found out you was a daughter of Aphrodite. Across from you sat the Apollo cabin, all above six foot and all with bright blonde hair. There was something about that cabin that brought your attention. It was either their blonde hair or the fact one of the guys were staring at you. You nudged your sibling, Piper, and you immediately caught her attention “Who’s that in the Apollo cabin who’s staring at me?” You asked, feeling quite uncomfortable with the situation. Piper followed your gaze and smirked as soon as she saw who you was talking about. “Will Solace. He’s one of the healers, he’s probably one of the kindest guys at Camp.” When you looked back at him again, you managed a small smile. He smiled back, revealing his dimples you’d just now noticed. You tried to hide your blush, dimples were always a deal breaker for you “He’s nice, you should talk to him.” Piper took you away from thought. “I could never talk to him,” You whispered to her “are you seeing how hot he is?” You gestured your head towards him and Piper looked back at him, smiling her award winning smile “Besides, if you look like that you probably have a girlfriend.” You stated, sounding logical. Piper frowned at you for a minute. “And even if he does have a girlfriend, what’s the harm in talking to him?” Piper asked, sounding confused “Unless you find him attractive and think if you spoke to him you wouldn’t be able to keep your paws off of him.” She joked, playfully punching you. You rolled your eyes and let out a couple of giggles. “No. But he’s not bad looking, is he?” You asked, staring at him. He was bending down to talk to one of the younger Apollo siblings. She looked exactly like him exact her hair was longer and her eyes were brown rather than Will’s blue ones. For a minute you observed his moments, everything he did was so graceful and beautiful. You would never be able to pull off such elegance even if you tried. When Will did it, it was just effortless. “No, of course he’s not. I mean, I love my Jason but Holy Aphrodite that guys a God.” You smiled at Piper’s words. She wasn’t like that to anyone but you, you felt like you opened up the real Piper and allowed her to be herself “As I said, you should go talk to him.” Piper stared at her nails. For a daughter of Aphrodite her nails weren’t all special, they were bitten and dirty. “I’ll talk to him afterwards. We have dinner next, right?” You asked. Piper nodded and paid attention to her nails more than you “Are your nails bugging you?” You asked. You’d never expect Piper to care about her nails. “A little. Drew brought them up earlier in the cabin and It’s been playing on my mind eversince. I’ll get over it though. Drew won’t get to me.” You went to hug Piper but you remembered Piper wasn’t one for hugs. Instead you went for rubbing her back reassuringly. “Don’t let her get to you, Pipes. She isn’t worth it.” Piper smiled at you but something else caught her attention. You could briefly feel someone standing in front of you. When you looked to see who it was, you saw muscular legs and new automatically it was Will Solace. Neither you or Piper said anything, he just sat down on the grass in front of you. Piper was the first one to say anything “Will, what are you doing here?” She asked, sounding just as confused as you were. Will smirked at you, making you feel both nervous and bashful “…Are you going to tell us?” Will kept his gaze on you “Well I know the Aphrodite cabin slack when it comes to the singing so I’m going to check if you guys sing or not.” Piper kissed her teeth and rolled her eyes. Piper’s eyes were beautiful, they changed between blue, green and brown… “Right, that’s why you’re here.” Piper replied rather sarcastically. Will kept staring at you, eventually you felt it was your place to confront him on that. “Um, I don’t mean to be rude but is there… Is there a reason…” You stopped yourself because you thought you was going to sound rude. Piper finished of what you was going to say for you. “Right, what she’s saying is take a picture because it’ll last longer.” You nodded in agreement. “Right… Wait, what?” Will smirked at your reaction and ran his long fingers through his golden locks. He looked you dead in the eye. “Sorry, it’s hard to NOT stare at such perfection.” He gave you a little wink and edged closer to you “You see this shirt?” You nodded “Touch it.” Piper cringed like she knew where this was going. Hesitantly, you touched his shirt “You feel that? That’s boyfriend material.” “OH MY GOD.” Piper shouted out, her voice coming out half in disgust and half in humiliation. You looked at Will and burst out laughing, you couldn’t help it. “That-that wasn’t the reaction I was expecting.” Will told you, sounding like he was going to burst out laughing with you. “I’m sorry but that’s the most cheesiest pick up line ever.” Will chuckled with you. When you looked at Piper she was just facepalming, you knew she was done with everyone at that Camp. “That laugh is adorable.” Will stated, staring at you lovingly as you snorted and made weird hiccup noises “No but seriously, I’m major boyfriend material.” You tried to go serious but it was hard to hide the goofy smile on your face. “I bet you are.” You answered, Will mimicking your smile. “How about we go for a walk and I’ll prove it to you.” Will told you, his tone and face deadly serious. “It would be my pleasure.” And with that, Piper made a fake gagging noise.
