** He takes this further in ''The Hidden Oracle'' by [[spoiler: pairing Nico off with Will Solace]], thereby establishing the first LGBT couple in the franchise. Not only that, but [[spoiler: ''Apollo himself'' is explicitly confirmed as being being bisexual]]! The best part is that ship in question is portrayed as healthy and completely non-sexualized, even in-universe with the narrator adding his two cents on the concept. It really says something about how far we've come in being able to show things like this in children's media, and ''major'' props to Rick for being completely unabashed about it.

-->''"I am committed to writing appropriate books for the middle grades. This means no bad language, no gratuitous or explicit violence, and no sexual content beyond what you might find in a PG-rated movie expressions of who likes whom, holding hands, and perhaps the occasional kiss. The idea that we should treat sexual orientation itself as an adults-only topic, however, is absurd. Non-heterosexual children exist. To pretend they do not, to fail to recognize that they have needs for support and validation like any child, would be bad teaching, bad writing, and bad citizenship."''
