Let me start by saying this: Nico is gay.
Nico is confirmed gay, Nico is gay, Nico is gay.
Okay, let's begin.
I'm not saying that Nico is a bisexual. In case you didn't read the above paragraphs, where I proceeded to state 'Nico is Gay' three times so I wouldn't get sued, I am positive Nico is gay. That has been confirmed several times because of Rick.
However, I AM stating this: I don't think Nico was originally planned to be gay.
Here's a quote below expressing what I mean:
"Nico shifted his weight. 'Juniper, like I tried to tell you . . . even if Grover died, he would reincarnate into something else in nature. I can't sense things like that, only mortal souls.'
'But if you do hear anything?" she pleaded, putting her hand on his arm. 'Anything at all?'
Nico's cheeks got even brighter red. "Uh, you bet. I'll keep my ears open."
-The Last Olympian
Nico is seen blushing as Juniper clings to him. I think that originally, Rick was just planning to make him straight. During HoO, he dramatically changed his mind.
I think that Rick was trying to do representation - but only because of the whole LGBTQIA movement. I'm not saying he's homophobic, I'm just saying he had rather convienent reasons for making him gay. Also, Nico was a test character - he was testing to see how people would take it. And when they took it well.... he made more characters.
Nico is also seen having a crush on Annabeth, something Rick shoves aside as him faking because he really loves Percy. I honestly think Rick originally planned Nico to actually have a crush on Annabeth, but then decided to change him immeadietly brush that aside and change him to gay. Again, not saying Nico is bi, I'm just saying Rick didn't think Nico's sexuality through, he more just shoved him in.
What does this mean for the LGBT+ community? I'll admit the title was a little bit of clickbait, but I do know what it means for the AUTHORS who write about the LGBT + community.
Several people have congratulated Rick on writing Nico's sexuality well. I like Nico's sexuality, but I think in terms of good representation - Apollo is way better. His sexuality is well written in, and it's obvious from day one that he doesn't care what gender he dates - at all.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
I try not to think it interferes with being nuts.

As you read up there this is a competition, so write facts about a demigod, for it to qualify it must pass a criteria, It goes like this:

I personally think it's because their love wasn't purely real from the beginning.
Let's take a look at how the RRW or some Riordanverse fans view Jason and Piper. Jason is somehow viewed as "bland", and Piper is most likely viewed "manipulative". And I actually agreed with these points as I read The Heroes of Olympus. Jason and Piper had so much potential for a better single arc and I want to talk about the matter here.
1) Unnecessary Couple-making (or, "shipping")
It is very obvious that their "relationship" in the school was manipulated, and I think the relationship between Jason and Piper after The Lost Hero was also manipulated because their feelings themselves were made by the manipulation before the TLH arc.
If Jason and Piper had acknowledged the fact that their so-called relationship was manipulated, and they decided to go their own ways after TLH, they would have had more page time about themselves, their history, and their personality development.
However, in the whole series of HoO, there were unnecessary couple-y moments of Jason and Piper, and to be honest, that didn't matter much in the whole plot, in my opinion. The two characters did have a solid history, and if they had decided to stay single at the end of TLH we could have seen more specific arcs and stories about them, and it would have also been a solid and un-soppy (? - I don't know if this is the right choice, English is not my first language;;) storyline.
2) Potentials Jason could have had
Jason is viewed as a "bland" character at most, and to be honest, I thought so too. However, as the books continued he showed a good personality and he soon grew to be one of the characters I actually favor.
To be honest, I would have loved to see the specific histories of Jason and how he had arrived in Camp Jupiter in the HoO series instead of investing that page time in Jason X Piper. That way, we could have known more about Jason, and his character could have gained more complexity and he'd be more three-dimensional.
3) Potentials Piper could have had
I'm going to be honest here, I liked Piper in TLH, and her history arc was quite well-written. But as the Jason X Piper thing started she kind of grew away from me, and like most people in RRW say, yes, it was a manipulative relationship.
Thus, if we removed the relationship part, Piper would have been a better, complex, and stronger figure in the books. It's kinda like how Leo's arc deteriorated in my opinion. Both had a history that I believe was well-written, and they did have a nice arc before they have started a relationship.
Therefore, these are the reasons I believe Jason and Piper had more potential as individual characters, and they were quite wasted (?) in the later books. Sorry if some of my word choices were not that good, I'm losing my English senses as time passes for some reason.
To be frank, I'm kind of scared because of being attacked again for my opinions, but I'm still posting this because I like Jason and Piper as individuals before their relationship and still support Jason, and it's quite sad to see that he is viewed as a bland character. This post is just my point of view, so please only acknowledge this as a short opinion drabble.
Okay, before y’all come at me let me first say that no, I am not saying that Sally is flat out 100% horrible, I am just saying that she is far from the perfect angel it seems that sometimes she is described as and that morally, she definitely is not perfect. In fact, many of the actions that she has canonly made in the series are very grey in terms of morality and could have definitely been solved in less violent and unpleasant ways. This brings me onto my first point…
Sally is quite violent and vengeful
To expand on the above short statement, I must say that Sally does have justification for some of the violent and vengeful things she has done, however the problems she faced that led her to do these things could have been solved in different, much easier and less risky ways. Y’all might know what I’m talking about already, but if you didn’t then I am talking about none over then the fact that Sally killed Gabe (an ab*sive, horrible man and stepdad) with Medusa’s head. Now, I definitely am not defending Gabe in any way. He deserved what he got, and possibly worse, I am just stating that what Sally did was most probably not the best solution, as she could get in trouble with the police, (relatives and spouses and the most common suspects for a person’s murder) leaving Percy alone and basically destroying the safety that she married Gabe in the first place to give him and/or it could have led to him retaliating and hurting her, and/or some innocent mortal might have been looking in Sally’s house and in some way found Medusa’s head and been petrified by it. Alternatively, she could have killed Gabe in a less dramatic and honestly safer way, as it has been stated before that sometimes, mythological relics attract monsters and Medusa’s head could do exactly that, which again would put Percy in danger and ruin what Sally tried so hard to do by marrying Smelly Gabe (ie. Keeping Percy safe from monsters and the world of Greek myths).
In addition, after Sally killed Gabe she sold him as a statue, proving that she is prepared to kill him and sell his petrified corpse for profit.
However, Percy is also at fault within this example as it was him who gave Sally Medusa’s head in the first place and in fact encouraged her to kill Gabe.
Sally is selfish
Now, this point is definitely debateable however I believe that in some points of the series (and before PJO) Sally acted selfishly. This is most notable in TLT and before PJO, when Sally refused for Percy to live and train at Camp Half-blood despite it being the safest option for a demigod of his powerful heritage and therefore scent and instead married Gabe to disguise Percy’s demigod scent, which despite being effective led to years of physical and emotional ab*se that both Sally and Percy had to endure. Additionally, as Dionysus later stated demigods not going to Camp Half-blood (or Camp Jupiter) is how demigods usually get killed, so although Sally had the right intentions her actions could have had negative consequences and indeed did have some, although I must admit that her courage is admirable dealing with Smelly Gabe for so long.
She is overrated and therefore many other characters are underrated
This is not a point criticising Sally herself, but instead the way that the fandom treats and talks about her (as far as I’ve seen, your experiences may have been wildly different than mine lol). As far as I have seen during my time on fandom and other platforms, Sally is overhyped a lot and treated basically like a goddess with no regards or mentions to any of her faults, and sometimes the Sally love can cause many over amazing characters to be severely underrated and basically never talked about. This is most notable with the cases of Esperenza Valdez, Natalie Chase and Maria di Angelo, who despite being great mothers (as far as we know of them) somehow never get talked about in the fandom and Sally is treated like the ultimate goddess and way better than all the other mothers in the Riordanverse. Also, this is also very prominent with how the fandom disregards Paul a lot – Sally and Poseidon are often referred to as Percy’s parents, completely ignoring Paul, who could arguably be considered a better parent than Sally and definitely better one than Poseidon. Percy has two good parents y’all, not one, though one of his parents is grossly overrated and the other the opposite...
Anygays, I’ll finish off the post now since I have no idea what else to put lol, if I made any mistakes please let me know and please be mindful that this post isn’t a joke or a dare, it’s actually my real opinion so please respect that :). I get that y’all will probably disagree with me, so feel free to debate in the comments or just simply comment your thoughts! Thanks for reading/skimming this!

Percy SOM: Finished 7th grade and becomes 13, will be going into 8th.
Percy TTC: Finished 8th grade and becomes 14, should be going into freshman year soon.
Percy BOTL: Finished 9th grade and becomes 15, should be going into sophomore year.
Percy TLO: Finished 10th grade and becomes 16, should be soon going into junior year. Am I right?
Percy TLH-HOH: Misses majority of junior year by being kidnapped, is still 16.
Percy BOO: Technically finishes junior year, is 17 now and will be spending senior year with Annabeth in NYC.
These are my dates, but I'm not sure anymore.

Then repeated Greek and Latin to get:
Jason, Grace, goddess of Rome, Jupiter and Luke and Grace, the younger sister of Aries, the son of the earthly blessings of Jupiter. Jason served as chief of the Twelfth Justice Corps in Castro's camp until Frank Hanang was passing through the grave. The first of the Half-Blood camp and the chief justice of the camp. Their relationship with Piper McClain lasted until their departure, as the relationship seemed "difficult" and was seen as an extremely rare marriage goddess. A few months later, Caligula, with the third commander, fell down while fighting among the ships. Nico also believes Asunison is better than an angel, but he's not sure if Asunison is in Elysium when he wants to be reborn. He is also a seven-time Olympic champion.
Jason Grace was a Roman demigod, the son of Jupiter and the mortal Beryl Grace and the younger brother of Thalia Grace. Jason was a praetor of the Twelfth Legion at Camp Jupiter until he gave his rank to Frank Zhang during The House of Hades as a field promotion; he was the former head counselor of Cabin One at Camp Half-Blood and the Pontifex Maximus at Camp Jupiter. He was in a relationship with Piper McLean until she broke up with him because their relationship felt "forced" and was largely orchestrated by the marriage goddess, Hera. A couple of months later, he died at the hands of the third emperor, Caligula, when fighting aboard his yachts. Nico di Angelo subsequently has a feeling that Jason is somewhere better, although he isn't sure if Jason is in Elysium or if he chose rebirth. He is also one of the seven Heroes of Olympus.

Nico D'Angelo is the 15-year-old son of Ida and Mary D'Angelo, originally from Greece. He also has a younger sister, Sabrina Angelo, and her father, her half brother, is running out of money. He is known throughout the world as the "Holy King", the title which he received from his family in the Battle of Tours. Now comes comfort.
(There is no comfort, but it actually said here comes comfort and then Frigg-ing stopped)
Nico di Angelo is a 15-year-old  Italian-born Greek demigod, the son of Hades and Maria di Angelo. He is also the younger brother of the late Bianca di Angelo and the paternal half-brother of Hazel Levesque. He is known in the Underworld as the "Ghost King" after taking the title from Minos in The Battle of the Labyrinth. He is currently in a relationship with Will Solace.

PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE JUMPING TO THE ACTUAL POST:
I only read through HoO so I'm going to be talking about PJO and HoO ships.
Please do not attack me because of the opinions I hold (e.g., "Percabeth is amazing and perfect! How dare you say that!" kind of comments - nuh-uh, I get offended easily and I'd love you to refrain from those comments, thank you in advance)
SO HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS:
1) Percabeth: I loved the development Percabeth had had in PJO. Like, it was amazing - just how two Demigods would be good friends, and naturally develop into lovers. And the fact that Annabeth had a crush on Percy since she was twelve - okay, that made me squeal out of cuteness. And it was great to see them as couples on HoO too, but to be honest, they kind of... um... kissed a lot, quite irrelevant to the plot too. It's my opinion, but I would have loved some more emotional romance than physical affection, that's all.
→ Honest rating by me: 8/10
2) Frazel: Eek, my OTP here. Yes, Frazel is rushed, but you have to see the fact that they have bonded as best friends before SoN, and taking that in advance, I think it's pretty cute and one of the best developments on ships in the CHB books, also a healthy relationship. Also, to the people who say "age gap" in this ship - they are probably 2~3 years apart and I don't think there's a particular problem with that...?
→ Honest rating by me: 9/10
3) Jiper/Jasper: Really rushed and I think Jason and Piper could have gone a better, single route. The fact that they were a couple was all manipulated, right? Then actually, them having feelings for each other all of a sudden is quite unrealistic even considering the magic, and we always have a single route + steady personal arc for Jason and Piper; I really hoped Jason and Piper could have gotten better personal arcs than making scenes for their "ship development".
→ Honest rating by me: 4/10 (they were still cute, though)
4) Caleo: I always say this. A kiss in four chapters regardless of the curse is quite unrealistic and not so appealing as a ship. As for the reasons which I always mention in post comments, I'll stop here. Oh, and Leo deserves a more detailed and better "single" arc.
→ Honest rating by me: 1/10 (it's still canon)
5) Solangelo: It was kind of a sudden, Will with Nico, but I am really looking forward to this ship! It's so cute and I see lots of potential within the two. And Nico finally having a ray of sunshine in his life 🥺
→ Honest rating by me: 7/10 (still haven't seen development, so average point for now!)
Now, going to the un-canon ships I find interesting:
6) Ships regarding Nico: As long as it isn't romantic, I'm fine with most of them. (of course, Solangelo is romantic, but everything else) Jasico and Reynico probably had the best friendship dynamic and I hope they become better friends in the future. It was just ✨ (also, I'm a person who believes platonic love > romantic love, and therefore a big fan of platonic ships)
7) Perachel: They're better off as friends, in my opinion. Rachel's still amazing and I think she'd have a better arc as being alone and there was this couple called "Percabeth" you know 👀✨
I'm really exhausted as of writing this right now, you can comment on a random ship that was not mentioned here below and I'll give you my opinions on that in the comments section later! Thank you for reading this :)
+ as I said on the HoO review post, Riordan could have done better on couples, but since this is just about ships I'll not talk about this again, though if I have time I'd love to talk thoroughly about this point along with Asian representation.
I was re reading PJO and HoO and
At the end of The last PJO Poseidon said more kids we''re comming and it could have been a joke.
then in lost hero piper said all cabins we're buzzing with activities accept zeuses and Hera's so that means poseidon cabin had more kids and maybe even hades cabin.
