So for the water bed headcanon, I think it's because Annabeth was almost stretched to death on a water bed in the Lightning Thief, at Crusty's Water Beds, remember? I just read that scene the other day, and that's what it reminded me of. So I think the thing with Annabeth is that she sees it and gets reminded of her first quest, and how scary that experience must have been for her.

DUDE FIVE OF YOU MESSAGED ME THIS IN LIKE 30 SECONDS WHY ARE YOU ALL SO SMART AND REMEMBERING THINGS THAT I DON’T.

A+ YOU GUYS.

SERIOUSLY.

Hello
I’m writing a story set in 1387 England, and I’m looking for some resources on clothing, especially for one character, who is a Muslim merchant/ sellsword. Can you direct me to some, please? You seem to be the best person to talk to about this.

Well, if you want to be detailed in your description, you’ll have to also be specific in considering his backstory and characterization. Several people have recommended this book:

The Moors: The Islamic West 7th-15th Centuries A.D. (Men At Arms)

Not everyone can afford reference books though, so here’s the Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History for various Islamic Arms and Armor.

These might also help:

Check out the Wikipedia page on “Islam in England (Middle Ages)”, see if any of the resources at the bottom seem relevant to what you’re looking for.
