2010. legacies are sometimes teased with the term ‘hemisemidemigods’.
2009. nico writes gothic and horror short stories.
2008. hera really hates emeli sandé’s song ‘next to me.’
If you’ve seen my answers you’ve clearly missed the majority of what I am saying. I’ve talked about it here, here, and here. I know I’ve talked about it more than just three times but I currently can’t find the posts.
Anyway I think this is the best summary of my opinion:
I also really struggle with m/f Nico ships that were really popular before HoH. Nico is queer, and regardless of whether or not that means gay/bi/pan/anything else, I find it hard to justify shipping a heteronormative ship that was popular before Nico was outed. Yes, it is completely possible for Nico to still be attracted to women. We don’t know what his preferences are… but in my experience on tumblr I’ve noticed that most people who ship Nico with a girl (Thalia especially) use the possibility of bisexuality not as a legitimate form of representation, but as an excuse to ignore that Nico is also interested in men. They essentially refuse to acknowledge that Nico is queer and then when they are called out for it respond with, “but! we don’t know that nico is gay! he could be bi! stop telling me what i can and can’t ship!!1!!”.
Doing that is obviously very problematic, so I always try to find a way to assure that queer erasure isn’t happening. Nico can be shipped with women… but you can’t use that as a reason to deny the basic fact that he likes men.
A great example of a blogger who handled this is greenconverses (are you following her yet? do so now). Before HoH came out I was following a Nico/Rachel fic of her’s called Death’s Dare. When the news broke the story started undergoing edits to make it clear that Nico wasn’t straight, while keeping the majority of the story the same.
Does this clear up my opinion? Feel free to ask more questions!
2009. inception was based on the life story of a child of hypnos.
So I get asks like this all the time and I actually have no clue. There are over 2,000 headcanons on this blog and I really don’t have the time to go through all of them and check.
Does anyone know some sort of an extension that can check for you?
2007. while most children of hephaestus feel physically warmer to the touch than other demigods, it isn’t unusual for them to always feel cold. they get so used to hanging out around the incredibly hot forges that everywhere else is cold for them.
2006. hazel doesn’t like most current movies, but she secretly loves high school musical.
2005. minor gods are given godship to modern concepts as olympus adapts to the present world. one son of apollo was named god of dentistry in the late 60s, and a daughter of hephaestus was named goddess of computers.
