i want things for nico. i’ve read all the books of riordans goddamn middle grade pjo series and i’ve managed to avoid caring about its cast of characters enough to actually think about them after i’m done with each book.
but now i want things for nico.
i want him to master shadow travel to a point where he can do it smoothly, cover great distances accurately without it sapping much of his energy.
i want him to be a globetrotter. fuck settling down at one of the camps. FUCK. THAT. EXPLORE ALL CORNERS OF THE (LIVING) WORLD, BB!! saint petersburg! kathmandu! bergen! kiss all the boys, kiss all the girls too, if you’re so inclined!! or don’t kiss anyone and just enjoy the view! that’s dandy as well! make new friends! you befriended bob (true hero of HoH imho), you TOTALLY have it in you, bb.
if the globetrotting attracts monsters, be a bamf and slay them. if they overpower you, go out in a blaze of glory, but have fun out there!!
check on hazel from time to time (if she, too, gets to live). let her hug and smooch you. send a card or an edible arrangement whenever the other demigods have a birthday/get married/have a baby/wtfever.
just go out there and challenge the fate of children of hades leading unhappy lives.
you went through tartarus alone. YOU’RE A FUCKING ROCK, BB, just roll and do your thang.
