I think I loved this just as much as its predecessor. If not more. Though this time, I think I have the words to say how much: this is perfection, to me. You hit so many points that make the Percy/Nico pairing so wonderful to me and your characterization has, once again, really worked. I loved every bit of this.

Though the end of Temperance had me cracking up and just thanking whatever gods listen to me that my dad has long since stopped asking me what I'm laughing at. Hades's reaction got me giggling, but Ganymede. Just yes.

Truly, a great piece. The bits of humor and seriousness put into this make it so real and believable. Diligence and Kindness are definitely my favorites; despite the shortness of both sections, they really give a great insight to the rest of the stories and the humor is fantastic.

Who else in camp would be sparring without a shirt on?
Favorite line. Enough said. My absolute favorite line.

Keep writing! I really look forward to seeing what else you churn out for this fandom! :D

Thank you so much!

Hey, judging from your username and icon, you might be interested in my Alec/Jace fic, "The Five Times Alec Wrestled the Angel." I've also got some Infernal Devices that's about halfway complete!

*giggles* This was really fun to read, though the last part made me sort of sad, but I love how you wrote Nico and Percy's relationship~!

And the part where they were found out by Percy's mom was just plain hilarious~! XD

Just read this and the first one, I really love the relationship and characterizations in these, it's very cute/realistic Percy/Nico, especially when the last part of this is taken into account.

Thank you so much! Yeah, I wanted this fic almost to be like a prequel for the Nico-centric story, even though that came out first. I Star Wars'd it. :P I'm glad you enjoyed them!

Nico isn't promiscuous! His one-and-only is Percy, he's just a horny teenage boy. :P And Percy's only slutty in Nico's mind (because Nico is jealous. A jealous, horny teenage boy.)

I've written another Percy/Nico -- this is actually the companion for that -- and a Percy/Rachel, and I just got permission from skellerbvvt to remix one of her stories as a Percy/Nico with Annabeth/Rachel. :)

Thank you!

Aww, thank you so much! I really enjoyed writing this one (and the companion piece and Percy/Nico in general) but I'm so excited whenever people enjoy it. The idea of Sally playing host to Olympus is just too good to resist!

okay, i've had this open for a while until i could have the time to sit and read it with no distractions, so i'm sorry i didn't comment earlier! HERE WE GO.

“Demeter used to have a thing with your dad!” Nico calls after him, still sounding gleeful. - Oh god just marry me already.

“No,” Nico argues, without any malice or energy; just to be contrary because he’s Nico. “Because you and Annabeth are sluts.” - HSADJLHGJSHDSA LOL JUST LOL LOL LOL FOREVER I LOVE THIS

Sometimes, Nico just needs love. It’s something Percy’s learned about him without Nico’s permission. The son of Hades likes to pretend like he’s cool and that emotions are futile and everything’s always hunky-dorey because even if it’s not, everyone just ends up dead anyway and he likes dead people. But what Nico’s still coming to terms with, Percy thinks, is that he himself is alive, and he needs the same things every other living person does. Percy just wants Nico to have a chance at happy. - Oh my god this whole paragraph. This. Whole. Paragraph. And that first line just killed me, because it's so true, and just - oh my god. You've hit on exactly why they need to be together, because Nico needs love. And Percy needs to give love.

The Apollo cabin loves him because the Stoll twins want to bone him, even though Percy would never admit that to be true. - Stoll twins are Hermes, man.

Who else in camp would be sparring without a shirt on?
Really.
- I love how these are all about Nico being a sex fiend. BECAUSE HE REALLY, REALLY IS. and i fail at writing about that so EXTRA MEGA PROPS

somehow he thinks that having your boyfriend’s mother see your butt is something that neither of you can ever fully come back from. - HAJShKJFHGSHKALDSJG

At least Persephone has the decency to laugh at him a little bit. - This made me all of the happy because ilthem :3

But then Ganymede starts stroking both boys’ hair tenderly, cooing, and offers all these lube recommendations and suggests kegel exercises and suddenly everything in the world is so much worse. - JESUS CHRIST WARN A GIRL OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG YAY. LOL. I AM LAME BUT THIS MADE ME REALLY HAPPY AND JUST YES.

or, most commonly, some kind of (d) all of the above. - Yep. Yep. Yep.

It was yours and it was special and even if you can get another, it will never really be the same. - oh my god, this entire section is killing me but this line. this line is. i am going to start crying or something because really, it's. i feel like an entire fic needs to be written about this. about how you do move on and you love again and you don't want to go back, it's just... different. and sometimes you think about how things were and wish you could have a moment of it back. and it's also how i do feel about percy and annabeth - i miss what they were before annabeth started acting her age (but that's part of her, that's something that makes up what she is, and i wouldn't change it, i just.) Yeah.

But because Percy resents – really resents, and he hates himself for it – that Luke loved Annabeth so much that he killed himself for her. - Holy shit I just. Thank you. Thank you for addressing this and thank you for making it... what it was, and not the lovely fandom fantasy where Luke/Percy was a real thing, because ilthat and all but that is not what happened, that is not how it was. Annabeth was the one who believed in him and loved him and it was Annabeth he couldn't kill. Not Percy. (/reads on and yes, okay, i do like that too, because yeah. i could see that. but luke didn't love him, at least not nearly as much as he loved annabeth way down there and in whatever way it was and just. yes.)

And. Okay. Okay. oh god this whole scene with Nico swimming all the way out there just to tell Percy he's the greatest - completely aside from how perfect it is, it also really resonates with me because I'm really feeling that, right now, with a certain person where it's like - I just feel the need to inform them that they are the best person in the world and that I think so highly of them and just that, really. (It wouldn't end the way this undoubtedly will, but just that snapshot, that is. really relevant rn.)

UGH they ARE Hermes, I am such fail. Urghhhhhh. Editing.











But really though, this is the most amazing review I've ever gotten for anything in any fandom in like, a decade and a half or something of fic (hushit'snormalright?) and I really wish I had the words to respond as amazingly. It's easier for me to leave reviews than it is to receive them, because it's just like haskdlflflfuffuh;x17;; wot?

But yes, I'm SO glad that you named like, all of the parts that I was like, "I hope someone gets what I'm doing with this part" or whatever, because it makes me really happy. :3

AND WTH YOU DO NOT SUCK AT WRITING SEXY!NICO WHAT ARE YOU SMOKING RN? Other than that you picture Nico as Skandar (I'm sorry but he looks too bb for how I picture Nico, IDK, I still see him as he was in LWW and not how he looks now when I picture him) your Nico is like, made of legs and cock or something idek. He's perfect. ♥

TY FOR THE REVIEW

I HOPE YOU WRITE SOMETHING IN A FANDOM I READ SOON SO I CAN COMMENT WITH MORE GIANT TEXT AND GOOGLED PHOTOS OF BEDS rofl

And I'm still like 50% done with that Infernal Devices fic. It's just like, giving me issues. I looked up Victorian porn to see if it would be worth trying to do it In Period Style, and the Victorian porn made me like, barf all over the house bc it was disgusting and super creepy, so now I'm like OH GOD STEAMPUNK PR0N WOULD BE SUPER CREEPY AND BARFFFF. But I DID write Jace/Tessa-with-shades-of-past!Will/Tessa (andeventhatIwaslikeOHGODVICTORIANPORNUSESSUCHTERRIBLEEUPHEMISMSIAMSCARRED4LYFE). DDDX

That he is, that he is.

Honestly, I didn't even know there WERE Seven Virtues until I was like... 20. I just had heard of the Vices, and even then, mostly because pop culture uses them for things so often.

You've got to think about all the things you like and decide whether they're worth sticking around for. And if they are, you'll find a way to do this.

And what if I don’t?

Then you go away, and you don't get to like anything anymore.
