Why do people make Jason and Nico seem like the ultimate bromance after HoO? There are always posts in which Jason, Reyna and Will are Nico’s only friends. I’m not saying they are not friends! But aren’t we forgetting somebody? Somebody who saved Nico and his sister from being killed by Dr. Thorn. Somebody who took them to camp safely. Somebody who gave Nico the Hades figurine that Bianca died for. Somebody who worried about him even after how much of a prick he was in BotL. Has everybody forgotten this scene?:
“We missed you at dinner,” I said. “You could’ve sat with me.”
“Nico, you can’t miss every meal. If you don’t want to stay with Hermes, maybe they can make an exception and put you in the Big House. They’ve got plenty of rooms.”
“I’m not staying, Percy.”
“But…you can’t just leave. It’s too dangerous out there for a lone halfblood. You need to train.”
Worrying about whether he got enough sleep and food and about his safety, looking after him, constantly being ready help him and to forgive him for what he did wrong. There are so many Nico and Percy moments throughout PJO. And in MoA, when Nico was imprisoned in that jar, do you remember who wanted to go help him despite the fact that Nico lied to him, telling him he didn’t know him when he actually did? Percy. Do you remember who didn’t want to risk going after him because Nico always seemed kind of creepy? Jason. Of course, Jason and Nico developed a nice friendship afterwards, but all Jason did was accept that Nico was gay. And seriously now, accepting that somebody is gay is nothing. There is nothing to accept, there is nothing wrong with that. Of course, points to Jason for keeping his secret, very nice of him. But you cannot tell me that Jason and Nico have a stronger bond than Nico and Percy.
