Because there are all these fics where Percy is all understanding, and supportive, and encouraging when Nico tells him he’s gay and honestly, this is what I think would actually happen:
6 days, 3 hours and 28 minutes.
That’s how long it took Nico to muster up the courage to finally confess his sexual orientation to Percy.
He hadn’t wanted to. But after months and months of Jason being by his side, and repeatedly commenting that the others would be fully supportive of him when he came out of the closet (without pushing Nico to actually do it), Nico had agreed.
It started with Hazel at first. Of course it started with Hazel.
She gave him a great big hug when he confessed, and they had a bit of a bonding session after. Jason was there by his side the whole time.
Jason was there by his side now. As they headed towards the movie theater with Percy.
