In exchange for getting to stay in Fandom for the summer, Jason had to agree to do some extra educational things for Bruce, and today, that meant going through a list of "classic" books that he needed to read in the next few months. Jason didn't understand the point of this - when was Jane Austen ever going to help him fight criminals? - but he also didn't want to get in trouble. At the moment, at least. Hopefully, some of the books wouldn't turn out to be as bad as he was imagining.

[Door and post are open!]

When Nico poked his head in the doorway, he was mostly checking to see that this weekend there was no strangeness happening. It seemed he and Jason couldn't get away from the weird and he was kind of not wanting to deal with anything crazy if he could help it.

Well, crazier than a week of seriously annoying rain.

And what did he find? Jason reading a novel. While it was insanely nerdy, it was way better than him being five or a redhead or anyone having turned into an animal. "How's the book?"

"What book?" Nico's head tilted, having seen that shoving move and decided to come on inside to find out what that was all about. "The one you just tried to hide from me."

"I'd say nothing, but I'm thinking what's up is why would you hide something you 'have to read for Bruce'?" Nico replied, climbing onto the bed beside Jason.

"Oh, you mean it's something I'd make fun of you for reading," Nico corrected, leaning his shoulder against Jason's and smirking mightily. "You're embarrassed way too easily."

Jason should be careful starting the nudging when he was trying to hide something behind him. "Okay, that's a little true. But I'm really mostly curious."

Nico really had thought Jason would make him work harder for it. "I promise I will try not to laugh in your face." He'd do it behind his back or something. The girly writing on the cover had his eyes swimming for a moment. "Pride and...what?"

Nico had to cover his face with his hand, trying desperately not to laugh at Jay's description. Still, when he thought he had it under control, Nico couldn't help bursting out with, "Courting? Seriously?"

Nico eyed Jason's book cautiously. "Better than you suddenly becoming someone out of that book. It was bad enough you flirting with me in another face."

Nico shrugged, bumping Jason with his shoulder. "You don't have to be sorry. I mean, it's nice knowing that even in weird situations you still think I'm hot."

"Usually," Nico repeated with a snort, thinking of the buckethead.

Okay, and then he was shaking with retained laughter.

"Of course not, that would be gross." Still Nico was looking amused. "Don't be mad, Jay, you can't help what happens to you here."

"You'll get revenge when something happens to me," Nico promised, reaching to pat his shoulder. "Not that I'm willing to let anything happen."

"Or I'm just screwed up enough that the island catches me a break," Nico suggested.

"I'm the definition of screwed up," Nico corrected. "Look it up in a dictionary and you'll see the family portrait. But it's okay, I'm good at ignoring it in favor of hanging around really hot guys." Like the one he was slinging his arm around.

"It's awesome the way you do that," Nico replied, smiling. "Liking me no matter what. Even when I interrupt your school stuff. Uh, though you'll tell me if you're in danger of flunking, right? I don't want Bruce ripping you out of school."

"And still you read anything the guy hands you. So dedicated." Oddly, Nico was more dedicated to Jason than school.

"I know who I'll come to if I end up stuck in a lit class," Nico shared. "Or to learn more about this courting thing."

"So it's this right now? Me sitting here and making fun of you?" Nico checked.

Date: 2011-05-30 08:50 pm (UTC)

"Ouch, I don't like hearing that," Nico admitted. "Is this something the author specified?"

"So who'd be on my side?" he asked, thinking his was the side of good. "Is there some guy in the book trying to get a little action?" Why was he asking?

Nico had to wonder if that would translate to his own life. "Everybody always wants the handsome guys, huh? Lemme guess, really nice scar?"

"Yeah?" He was kind of attached to the way Jason looked at him when he did stuff like that.
