Many things to say about this fic:
First of all, this fic was written for prplesockerstar
(who gifted me with the most wonderful oneshot a couple of weeks back. You can read that over here
). Sorry it’s quite late, m’dear. I hope it’s to your liking.
Secondly, the ideas for Nico’s professions for #1 and #3 aren’t originally mine. Credit must go to greenconverses
on that front, particularly to Death’s Dare and this
wonderful fic. If you haven’t read any of her work, I suggest you go do so. Like, right now. You are missing out on a huge chunk of your PJO fandom life. Props must also go to artemisrae
for the idea of Percy as a cop.
This fic can also alternatively be named “The Three Possible Ways Nico and Rachel’s Relationship Could Have Turned Out,” mostly because, since this ship isn’t really in canon, these two could end up anywhere from friends to more-or-less permanent significant others.
Lastly, this was originally supposed to be The Four
Possible Futures of Nico di Angelo, but this fic got away from me really fast and, with each possible future being more or less a oneshot, ended up quite long. Knowing that some people don’t like reading long fics, I had to remove one. For those who are interested, though, the possible future I took out was Nico as a medical examiner – you know, that dude in the crime shows who does the autopsies? Yeah, that. Rachel claimed credit for Nico ending up that way because she was the one who forced coerced him into going to college under a Dare Enterprise scholarship. (Idea for this profession is not mine, either. It goes to supersadisticsam004 over at FF.Net).( “I blame Rachel. She brainwashed me. Planted information in my head every time she said some random art fun-fact and made sure it stayed there.”Collapse )
