This isn't my review, but I thought I'd just share this little gem and see what the fandom thinks. I think it's rather informative.

{Redacted} dared me to read Kiss a Boy in Tokyo Town and I agreed, curious about this Percy/Nico fic that everyone was slobbering over so long ago. Brb.

Well, so far it’s terrible. The purple prose makes it hard to understand what’s actually going on, the Percy worship is rampant, and the series of events that led Olympus to moving to Japan sounds like a bad plot device to get this story set in Japan so that the author could have Percy walk through all these places with descriptions. Still no plot in sight, but Nico has arrived looking like a “serial rapist” so maybe something will now happen, a few thousand words into the fic.

So there’s more Percy worship which is strange because Percy is a huge fucking dick in this story, but whatever. Some really racist one-liners and more descriptions. Still no plot in sight. I might as well be doing a Google maps tour of Tokyo with a little drawing of Percy and Nico off to the side for all this fic is giving me.

Also nice new entrance to the Underworld, by the way. I mean in Hiroshima. It really plays well with the United States Underworld entrance at the site where the World Trade Center use to be. Wait…

So there’s even more Percy worship and scenery porn. We learn that Chris is a son of Demeter (news to me) and that Percy once slept with Clarisse, but lols is back with Annabeth now. But then oh wait, he’s making out with Nico now on the roof? That’s strange since I can’t remember any kind of actual…meaningful romantic interaction. Maybe that happened when Percy described Nico as a rapist or the time they made a “Japanese men have small penises” joke. Or the time Nico gushed because zomg Percy speaks such good Japanese only after a year of living there! Or maybe after the “we are so inbred” comment. I’m not even sure if they are friends by this point but there you go.

So more scenery porn and—you guessed it—more Percy worship. It’s funny because Percy has no personality/goals in this fic sans being an asshole and a cheater, but there you go again. Nico uses the word “retard” to describe Percy and there is something with some monk. I don’t remember much about that because honestly this fic is literally boring me to tears.

Annabeth eventually shows up, wanting to see Percy so much even when her sister is sick back in America. Percy rewards this behavior by sucking Nico’s dick and then feeling bad for about 5 seconds before going on to fuck Nico and begin discussing plans to break up with Annabeth for him. There a lot of scenes of Percy and Nico doing various Japanese things and making out. Did I mention that there still isn’t any relevant character development, romantic or platonic, AND Annabeth is around during all this? Still dating Percy? Because she is.

Also none of the characters are in character. Like. Change their names and the circumstances on why they are in Japan and you have a bad soap opera on your hands.

So Percy continues to cheat on Annabeth with Nico and this whole thing is pretty gross because eventually Nico calls Annabeth to the apartment to force the issue. Nico acts like a selfish brat and Percy acts like a jackass. There is probably more racist jokes and “it’s either me or Annabeth, Percy. Homogay or heterostraight” discussions but by this point, I’m just kinda glazing through the remaining story.

Also, even though Annabeth just caught Percy about to fuck Nico, because of Nico, who he is STILL choosing to break up with Annabeth over, the author thought it was a good idea to have more scenery porn. So Annabeth and Percy are going to go on a date so we can get more Google Maps descriptions of Japan.

Yup. Truly this is a masterpiece of the fandom.

I don’t think I can make it to the end, y’all.

AND….I couldn’t finish it. Sorry guys.

After around the time Percy and Annabeth try to have a conversation about it, and it becomes a matter of gay or straight and then they are suddenly friends again and Nico and Percy do something and then kiss or something I just. I can’t do it.

The author put up a little note at the end pointing out the bisexual erasure and misogyny, but they forgot to include the fetishization of Japan, racist jokes, ablest language and the generally boring-as-fuck nature of the story.

1/10 would not recommend.

I just keep returning to read this fix and this last chapter always gets me, it is always so THEM. THATS Percy. THATS Nico. They are so in character as to how I feel like they are, and the way everyone else, ESPECIALLY Annabeth is, so true to what they have been made out to be, I love it. I love this fix. I have read this now for roughly the 7th time through at random intervals and I never get tired of it. Thank you so much for writing this, and thank you for being such a good writer.
