There isnt much of a plot, its a character study of two chicano teenagers. Mostly SoL with sexuality questioning and family issues
That being said, it has the best coming out of the closet scene ever writen because it happens in reverse

Nico is a main character throughout most of the two first series (but he first appears in the 3rd or 4th book, I forget which one). Will is a minor character. They interact in Blood of Olympus (obvious sexual tension mostly coming from Nico) and the first book of Trials of Apollo (which is where they are confirmed canon).

Angsty dark homo and his healing doctor boyfriend that doesn't put up with his emo bullshit.

>>3485714

Yep.
Once the parents start to push the boys to get together and confess, the suspension of disbelief kinda goes to hell.
>>
>>3488443
Fictional as fuck, especially somewhere in El Paso. Not even Austin or Dallas was that liberal in the 80s.

Christ. This is why Chicanos shouldn't write fucking literature.
>>
>>3488444
Didn't one of them have parents who were liberal college professors or something?
>>
>>3488395
Don't bother. After the Last Olympian, the series went to shit. The fact that any gay shit only happens in like two books and it can be squeezed to 30 pages (and this being liberal with my estimate), doesn't make it worth it to read six books of decreasing quality for some gay scenes between a secondary character and a literal who.
>>
>>3488444
What astounds me is that the author is an old fart born in the 50's.
>>
>>3488401
The main character's parents do, but it's sorta believable because his lesbian aunt had just died and they felt guilty about how the entire family had pretty much dropped contact with her for being gay. They saw the signs, and they wanted to be supportive this time.

Not going to say it was super common but there were supportive parents attending pride marches even in the 70s.
>>
>>3488704
Hell, my dad used to say outright that he hated gay people, but after I came out he's actually been trying to change his way of thinking and be supportive. Not all homophobic parents jump the gun and disown their kids. It's made clear throughout the book that both sets of parents love their sons unconditionally, and again the main character's parents were already a bit more open-minded because of his lesbian aunt.
It makes me sad to see people who haven't even read the book ripping on it. The author is an old man who spent his entire life in denial about being gay, the book's conclusion is optimistic because he's giving the characters a chance at a life he never got to live. It's a hopeful ending, which is exactly what gay teens (the target demographic) need.
>>
>>3488776
Okay but why the 87?
>>
>>3488791
It adds to the sense of isolation and struggle both boys would have coming to terms with their sexuality in away that a modern setting wouldn't. The gay rights and visibility movements were only just becoming a thing and that was primarily in big cities.
>>
>>3488776
Anon these are Latino parents. Unless they were from Buenos Aires or Quiche Mayan (like my grandparents were) aka one of the few native groups (and even then this doesn't apply to all Quiche) then there's no fucking way that all 4 parents are going to play matchmaker especially not during this >>3488673
>>
>>3488776
>>3488931
Nevertheless, it's fine, albeit the hint of realism is kinda gone. I'm not saying they have to go through Brokeback Mountain bullshit, but some growing from the parents (don't have to be homophobes just not fully accepting or whatever) would have been nice too.

Trials of Apollo is a bit at least for that. Apollo is pretty openly bi and is open about his attraction to men and at one point spends an odd amount of time admiring a wrestlers loincloth. [spoiler]I'm still somewhat bitter Nico didn't throw himself at Jason though.[/spoiler]

Meh. I don't really care for Apollo like I did with Percy and it's not like he is currently dating/banging any men in the series (so it means nothing, it's like Bulat from Akame Ga Kill, okay he is gay, so what? it isn't really explored beyond talking about guys or getting touchy with straights) and don't say the last book will change that because Rick already has the gay interaction quota set with Nico and Will appearing again in the last book.

Just saying if you want gay content, go read another book series.

Honestly Nico is one of my favourite gay character despite HOO flaws. And I hope he fucks up everyone in the last book.
>>
>>3489722
I love the series too, and Nico, but I hate it when people kinda bamboozle other people into this series with the premise of gay character and romance. It tends to make some unhappy fuckers.
Other than probably [spoiler]hand holding[/spoiler], I am not expecting much from the last book.

I know Anne Rice has pretty much gone off the rails in her latest books but the first three in the VC series will always be special to me.

Does she still go after people who write fanfics about her books?
How does she feel about fanart? Probably less bitchy about it?
>>
>>3493260
She's still anti fanfic but it seems like she just avoids it now instead of being overtly hostile/litigious. Don't ask, don't tell, I guess.
I don't know if she's ever had a problem with fanart but I think she'd be on shakier ground pursuing legal action against it.

Because guys kissing each other is terrifying apparently. Least he's all but promised a Will Nico couples trip to Tartarus book. Maybe they'll be allowed to chastely peck each other on the cheek in the middle of hell.
>>
>>3495873
I'm just going to headcanon thanks to Nico's Catholic upbringing, he doesn't want to have sex until marriage and because of that, kissing Will is probably not happening until he is 18.

I still don't get that. He last went into a church when he was 8 years old. After that he got memory wiped spent 70 years in a limbo casino, before being put into a military boarding school. Nico must have had one persuasive priest to get Catholic guilt from that.

Italians kiss their in-laws all the time. It's considered haram for you to kiss in front of them with your partner. And since this book was in Apollo's pov, we were never going to see a kiss. Piper being the Cherokee slut she is (seriously HoO backs up my claims) didn't give a shit if her mortal girlfriend kissed in her front of Apollo.
