Fandom: Percy Jackson and the Olympians / Heroes of Olympus
After the war against Gaea, Nico di Angelo is expected to spend three days in the infirmary under the care of Will Solace. Though these three days are anything but uneventful, things get really complicated when Apollo appears with a new quest to restore the power of prophecy.
Just recently finished Blood of Olympus and I was shocked how quickly I fell in love with Solangelo. Shocked enough to return to fanfiction after a four-year hiatus and a purging of my old stories. Hopefully this time goes better than the first.
I’ve also recently re-entered tumblr after deleting my old account, and as such, have a rather pitiful amount of followers. Not to self-promote too much, of course, but the reblog and follow buttons are like, right there. No pressure
Then he walked back across the green, where Will Solace was waiting.
Nico di Angelo followed Will through the Apollo cabin, to a set of stairs at the back that he had never seen before. Not that he had ever spent a lot of time in the Apollo cabin. Sunshine and music were two things that didn’t tend to hang around him, as a son of Hades.
That was what had defined him almost entirely for the past few years of his life. Death. The death of his sister, Bianca. The death of the spirits he ended up spending almost all his time with. The deaths that fuelled his powers in the war against Kronos, and then later, Gaea.
But now both those wars were over, and he didn’t know what he was supposed to be doing now.
Well, Will Solace certainly seemed to think he knew, and was rather upfront about that, which led him to where he was now, Cabin Seven.
“Later, they told him what happened. All he remembered was the screaming.
According to Reyna, the air around him dropped to freezing. The ground blackened. In one horrible cry, he unleashed a flood of pain and anger on everyone in the clearing. Reyna and the coach experienced his journey through Tartarus, his capture by the giants, his days waiting inside that bronze jar. They felt Nico’s anguish from his days on the Argo II, and his encounter with Cupid in the ruins of Salona.
They heard his unspoken challenge to Bryce Lawrence, loud and clear: You want secrets? Here.
The spartoi disintegrated into ashes. The rocks of the cairn turned white with frost. Bryce Lawrence stumbled, clutching his head, both nostrils bleeding.
Nico marched toward him. He grabbed Bryce’s probatio tablet and ripped it off his neck.
‘You aren’t worthy of this,’ Nico growled.
The earth split under Bryce’s feet. He sank up to his waist. ‘Stop!’ Bryce clawed at the dirt and the plastic bouquets, but his body kept sinking.
‘You took an oath the the legion,’ Nico’s breath steamed in the cold. ‘You broke its rules. You inflicted pain. You killed your own centurion.’
‘I—I didn’t! I—’
‘You should have died for your crimes,’ Nico continued. ‘That was the punishment. Instead you got exile. You should have stayed away. Your father Orcus may not approve of broken oaths. But my father Hades REALLY doesn’t approve of those who escape punishment.’
That word didn’t make sense to Nico. The underworld had no mercy. It only had Justice.
‘You’re already dead,’ Nico said. ‘You’re a ghost with no tongue, no memory. You won’t be sharing any secrets.’
‘NO!’ Bryce’s body turned dark and smoky. He slipped into the earth, up to his chest. “No, I am Bryce Lawrence! I’m alive!’
‘Who are you?’ Nico asked.
The next sound from Bryce’s mouth was a chattering whisper. His face became indistinct. He could have been anyone— just another nameless spirit among millions.
‘Begone,’ Nico said.
The spirit dissipated. The earth closed.”—
Blood of Olympus, pages 296-297, Rick Riordan
Okay can we just talk about this? *SPOILERS*
Nico turned Bryce into a spirit and damned him to hell because he was going to make Reyna confess her secrets. He didn’t want anyone to have to go through what hes had to go through. This part of the book is one of my favorite parts and yet it is absolutely terrifying what that darling precious baby angel can do.
“Then she did something so unexpected Nico would later think he dreamed it. She walked up to Nico, who was standing to one side in the shadows, as usual. She grabbed his hand and pulled him gently into the firelight.
“We had one home,” she said. “Now we have two.”
She gave Nico a big hug and the crowd roared with approval. For once, Nico didn’t feel like pulling away. He buried his face in Reyna’s shoulder and blinked the tears out of his eyes.”—Nico’s POV——Blood of Olympus (via pjoaddictedfangirl)
Nico woke up in a hospital bed. He was strapped to the infirmary bed, unable to sit up despite how much he wanted to. His throat was gravelly and his tongue felt like sandpaper. Blinding sunlight looked through the window, and Nico was barely able to turn his head away. A lamp bathed…
im just coming to u cause im going thru the fucking solangelo tag and i feel ur post the most so hi im a lame shipper too got any headcannons to share?
OH BOY DO I
I feel that the beginning of their relationship is really rocky? Like, Will doesn’t know what’s really happened to Nico, so he can get kinda irritated at Nico’s ‘broodiness’ and Nico is awful at talking about his emotions (bottling them up until he explodes) and won’t explain why he gets so depressed about stuff?
It takes Percy like, a month to figure out what Nico meant and then he’s all aboard the ‘let’s get Nico a boyfriend’ train but he’s so oblivious it hurts. But he’s so genuinely delighted for Nico that no one can really get mad at him.
Nico can sing.
Will is really good at getting Nico to talk about how he’s feeling and helping him get through/past his issues and doesn’t try to devalue them or dismiss them. For a kid who’s been hurt emotionally so much, it’s really soothing.
They don’t really like PDA, but they like skin-touching (hand-holding, hugs, being pressed to each other’s sides.)
Jason sits Nico down and gives him a safe sex talk. It doesn’t really go that well and Nico spends about a week going absolutely scarlet whenever he sees Will.
Remarkably, their godly parents are totally okay with them dating each other, but Aphrodite keeps trying to spice up their romantic life, which ranges from funny/cute to outright terrifying and awful.
And that’s all I have right now. Boy do I have a lot of feelings.
no but will solace’s only musical talent is godawful whistling and i think that’s beautiful yet people always make him some musical god who serenades nico but why would you do this when you have a character who can produce a whistle of supersonic wavelengths that causes grown men to keel over in pure pain and that’s literally the extent of his musical abilities.
A/N: I finished Blood of Olympus last night and was surprised at how immediately I latched onto this ship. Then again, considering I’ve shipped Nico/happiness since TTC, I guess it’s not all that surprising.
I’ve never written for this fandom before so concrit or feedback of any sort would be greatly appreciated! :D
Percy watched Nico walk away, more spring in the boy’s step than he’d ever seen before. Will Solace was at the edge of the common, and when Nico reached him the older boy said something to him, laying a friendly hand on his shoulder for a moment. Percy’s eyes nearly bugged out of his head and next to him, Annabeth started laughing.
“Wait,” he said, turning to his girlfriend. He could feel his mouth hanging open; he probably looked like he was trying to catch flies. “So Nico—”
You know? I really think that Rick is gonna write another series about the Olympians. The whole thing about Apollo… The Ella’s line of a prophesy about the sun falling, Will’s incorporation in the story at the end, I really think that the new series it’s gonna have Will Solace as the protagonist, trying to save his dad.
A lot of people keep using “You Are My Sunshine” in fics and headcanons. It’s really cute, but I picture it more as Will chasing Nico through camp singing it as loudly and obnoxiously as possible while Nico screams at him to shut up.
Okay so everybody is saying that Percy deserved a chapter in BoO and blah blah blah BUT LOL did you not read Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods ? The whole motherfricken book is narrated by Percy telling stories about greek gods with his sassiness so go buy the huge book and sit y̶o̶u̶r̶ ̶c̶r̶u̶s̶t̶y̶ ̶a̶s̶s̶ down pLEASE
