    Finding music for Nico is pretty hard but hell if every goddamn line of this song ain't 100% him.

    She dreams black dreams when she cries herself to sleep
    starving in the garden with only forbidden fruit to eat
    where will you turn, when the judgement is returned?
    you're damned if you do, and you did ... so baby burn

    back in the hole
    back in the hole

    You don't tell time, time's telling you
    don't know how fast its going, but you'll know when its through
    we build up our castles, all grand and immense
    but only in its ashes will we know what it meant

    back in the hole
    back in the hole

    I bit in your fruit and spit out the seeds
    six months in the darkness look what happened to me
    the sweeter the poison the surer the kill
    there's room at the table and we'll all have our fill

    back in the hole

    Most of Innumerable Seeds of Calamity is Nico music, but nothing but this, Hammer/Nails, and Pay the Rope fit him quite so well.

    go ahead and put me on that cross
    go ahead and put me on that cross
    cause i'd rather this than just
    being lost

    you bowled me over like a train
    you bowled me over like a train
    i swore before to the lord and man and more
    that i wouldn't never let this happen again

    hammer hammer nails
    hammer hammer nails
    go ahead and put me on your cross
    go ahead and put me on your cross
    cause i'd rather this than just

    I've been walking with a bullet in my side
    I've been walking with a bullet in my side
    doctor said that i should've died
    but my hearts still pumping so i guess i'm still alive

    hammer hammer nails
    hammer hammer nails
    go ahead and put me on your cross
    go ahead and put me on your cross
    cause i'd rather this than just
    being lost

    That night you let me bleed to death
    that night you let me bleed to death
    i sat in the corner and i could've sworn
    you laughed as i choked on my last breath

    hammer hammer nails
    hammer hammer nails
    go ahead and put me on your cross

    Ain't no man escape unscathed
    when he tangle in the thistle with a slippery snake
    the more some give the more some take
    sinking to the bottom where they find there place
    don't go walking where they can see your face
    when the going gets rough you just go without a trace
    the more bad gets done the more goods erased
    we ain't going to heaven we're just going to waste

    your neck will pay the rope in due time
    your neck will pay the rope in due time
    down at the end of the line, waits your punishments design
    your neck will pay the rope in due time


    You're a natural cheat, a natural thief
    a natural disease tangled up in the sheets.
    you lie down with dogs you get up with fleas
    drink with the devil you get friends like these
    that's no smile he's just showing his teeth
    never caught red handed at the scene
    strictly stain proof if you know what i mean
    even pontius pilate's hands weren't so clean

    your neck will pay the rope in due time
    your neck will pay the rope in due time
    down at the end of the line, waits your punishments design
    your neck will pay the rope in due time

    You're a barrel full of charm a gold plated whore
    whats more your the hook hidden by the lure
    all is fair in love and war
    but at lying and cheating ain't nobody keeping score
    you've got a little black heart though you don't know what its for
    fed the lady to the tiger and threw open both doors
    burn down bridges til there ain't no more
    but when the hangman pulls your number you're gonna settle for sure

    your neck will pay the rope in due time
    your neck will pay the rope in due time
    down at the end of the line, waits your punishments design

    Lav in general for 1, though Unspoken's scent is a bit more getting hit in the face with it. And the last is Nico, yeah. Kind of another easy one since his smell was mentioned in a post (I just took out the supernatural notes)

    Pearl for lab partner because we wouldn't fight about getting the work Done and also could be Huge Nerds together.
    Amethyst for getting stuck in an elevator with. I'm sure between us we can figure out something to do. (Shapeshift charades?)
    Garnet for trainer at McD's. She's super chill and patient and won't get mad when I fuck things up at first. And she's also not the type to physically take over something I'm doing to show me how unless I'm about to cause an Disaster. (I hate when people just. Grab what you're working on mid-attempt to show you how to do it right and no?? I'm learning? Let me do the thing and give me instructions to not fuck it up I'm not gonna learn if you don't let me *do* anything) (I'm not salty you're salty)

    Oh man. So many things. So very many things.

    So: to start things off, his relationship with Laverna becoming strained was. Very bad for him. They used to be inseparable- downright codependent, actually- and he built up a lot of his identity as being part and counterpart to her. The fact that they literally share part of a soul didn't help things (especially since, because he's literally the part of her soul she's usually missing, she was a lot more stable around him.) And having the Queen of Neglect for a mom meant that they were both- but him especially, as the 'sane' one- were parentified to look after each other because that's the upside of having twins, right? You only have to do half the parenting and then they can do the rest for each other! (That is not how Things Work, mama Cadwal, and you are a shit parent)

    At his core, Nico is a Knight. And before they parted ways it was. Basically the foundation of his identity. He's the one who looks after his sis because she's channeling dark energies in her sleep again, or started prophesying in the middle of Calc, and because of the nature of her condition (both mimicking psychosis which people do Not respond well to, and the fact that missing a chunk of her soul leaves her open to magical + supernatural manipulation) he had to get mean about it.

    And then Things Happened, mostly involving their mother's untimely demise that he definitely didn't have anything to do with, and once they were both 18 they went their separate ways for a lot of reasons, including the fact that they both knew they were horribly and unhealthily codependent and neither of them are the kind of person to deal well with being dependent on anyone. They made exceptions for each other but. After 18 years they kind of wanted to Not.

    Nico didn't really have a plan when they split, he'd spent the past ~6 years being The Guy Who Breaks Faces if you fuck with the creepy girl, and who the fuck even is he? Both sibs made some pretty bad decisions around then. His were exacerbated certain factors regarding their birth and the whole Soul Thing. (He met their dad! It went a different kind of poorly than being around their mom did. He also isn't aware he met their dad.)

    And then there are those factors regarding their birth + soul situation. That's a huge mess that fucked both of them up in very different ways, but his was a lot less obvious. (As far as he knew growing up having some extra soul made him healthier and more robust both physically and magically. Turns out even when a soul split is fucked up in your favor it's not exactly a good thing.) I can go into more detail about that but it's it's own separate mess and ought to be its own post since it has to do with both sibs.

    Short version: identity issues, being a Knight who can't Knight, a conga line of terrible decisions and family drama, and some base-level fuckage that comes from having your soul put together wrong.

    So it starts with Lav making a bad and regrettable decision, which she decided to fix by making an even worse and more regrettable decision. The decision was demons.

    In her defense, she was kind of dying.

    So in the aftermath she realizes, shit, she kind of owes a demon big time, because getting hauled back from death's door isn't exactly a small time contract. She doesn't like this, so she proceeds to make bad and regrettable decision #3: screw over a demon.

    She, in looking for a way to screw over a demon, discovers Mari, who's in the process of turning into an angel and really not happy with it.

    So Lav digs up an old spell that's mean to bind non-demon chaotic spirits to a mage to use their power, but using it turns someone into something that's not either. So Lav gets together with Mari, uses herself in the place of the chaotic spirit, and becomes her shadow. Kind of literally. She's gone intangible except to Mari, but some sensitive folks can see her... but only as Mari's shadow moving independently. They're now no longer a demon-bound mortal and a semi-angel, they're something else entirely so neither side can track them easily and they can go blow off their debts and responsibilities. (As long as they keep moving and don't get caught)

    It works for a while and the two are close. But then the angels find them, and they're about as pissed as mechanical beings of pure Order can get. If they tear them apart they won't really be interested in preserving Laverna. In fact, she's most likely going to stop existing, and quite possibly have never existed. Angels don't fuck around fixing flaws in the Design.

    So she decides that demons are the lesser of two evils here and contacts the one she owes, giving them Mari's existence as trade. Mari and Lav are separated and neither of them are ripped out of Creation itself, but Mari's existence is a threat and she's got to die or the war is over and Order wins.

    Laverna's left there, her own person, but having effectively just killed the one person she ever gave a shit about who gave a shit in return. And the demon is. Surprisingly OK? And points out that, hey, she kept both sides on a goose chase for almost two years, which is pretty impressive. And she really hates angels now because it's pretty much all their fault things ended. So maybe become meguca a demon? She'll have a home there and won't have to run from anyone and demons are pretty much family.

    So she goes 'know what? FUCK IT' and became a demon.

    The whole affair is why she's very adamant that she made the right decision and being a demon is Awesome. Because if she doesn't she'll remember what she did and why she's a demon now and that's not a good place to be.
