Kind of a response to Cutting the Line from the other day - someone said Nico was out of character so I did this.
Comments would be lovely, please and thank you!
Author's note as published on FanFiction.net:
I haven't visited Edinburgh for a few years but when I was writing this I was sure that there was a little gift shop in the middle of either Greyfriars Kirkyard or Old Calton Cemetery. I have no idea why you'd stick a gift shop in the middle of consecrated ground, so this is an open apology to Scotland in defence of my memory.
The whole 'writing about Nico being sad' thing was inspired by the beautiful artwork of Viria and I think it's set maybe after Jason and Nico talk/argue in Africa. Or maybe Nico needs a break from Reyna after she's delivered the Athena Parthanos. I actually haven't a clue...
I also like this less and less the more I read it back, especially the end, so please let me know what you think!
