Could you do one where the seven find out about how powerful Percy is, like how he turned down being a god and helped Annabeth hold the sky? Like I would love to see that. I imagine them being in awe of both them, but like they mention it during a meeting like "immortality would make this a lot easier"

  • Everyone was gathered around, having breakfast for the first time after getting Annabeth and Percy back. They were trying to discuss what to do about the war ahead of them.
  • “Immortality would make this a lot easier.” Percy mumbled as Annabeth rubbed the back of his hand with her thumb.
  • “Immortality?” Piper asked. 
  • “Yeah. After the Titan war, the gods offered me the gift of immortality but I turned it down.”
  • “What? Why would you do that?” Leo asked then looked at Annabeth for a moment. “I mean, the gods thought you were worthy of immortality?” 
  • “Yeah.” Percy replied. “I mean I held up the sky and survived.”
  • “Holding up the sky?” Hazel asked. “You mean like the titan Atlas?”
  • “Yeah.” Percy replied. “I took it from Artemis after she took it from Annabeth.”
  • “And you didn’t die?” Leo asked in awe. “How heavy was it? How didn’t you die?”
  • “It was extremely heavy. Probably the weight of a hundred blue whales or so.” Annabeth replied. “There was so much strain that we both had matching gray streak in out hair.”
  • The other five were staring at the two of them in awe and slight fear. Percy and Annabeth were probably the two strongest demigods in the world. And Percy, with being offered immortality, was the most powerful demigod in the world.
  • Percy looked at everyone who was staring at him awe. He didn’t want everyone to be afraid of him. He just wanted to be friends.
  • “Let’s just figure out a plan.” Percy said, trying to get everyone to focus. “We can do this.”

I couldn’t resist. Also please watch Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. Piper and Leo get their own playlists, too, so don’t worry.

Rick Riordan and Diversity

People complain about Rick Riordan “beating a dead horse” but HE CAN BEAT ALL THE DEAD HORSES HE LIKES.

Rick Riordan has actively added diverse characters in all of his books to represent more kids. Characters in his books include:

  • a Arab-American, Muslim Valkyrie (Magnus Chase)
  • a deaf/mute elf who uses sign language (Magnus Chase)
  • a Hispanic son of Hephaestus (Heroes of Olympus)
  • a half-Cherokee daughter of Aphrodite (Heroes of Olympus)
  • a Chinese son of Mars (Heroes of Olympus)
  • a bisexual God/Teen (Trials of Apollo)
  • a happy and loving gay couple, Nico and Will (Trials of Apollo)
  • a black male dwarf that loves fashion and design (Magnus Chase)
  • a black daughter of Hades (Heroes of Olympus)
  • a genderfluid, transgender warrior of Odin (Magnus Chase) 
  • kids with ADHD and dyslexia (All greek/roman demigods in Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus)
  • POC siblings of mixed heritage, Carter and Sadie Kane (The Kane Chronicles)

and that’s just off the top of my head! This is not at all a conclusive list!!

When Rick Riordan first revealed Nico, a son of Hades in his best-selling Heroes of Olympus series, as gay people asked him “why?” and he said because he wanted kids to see themselves in his books and that all kids need to be able to see themselves in literature and find reassurance that they’re fine just the way they are. HE PORTRAYS ALL OF THESE KIDS AS HEROES. This is SO SO IMPORTANT

So unlike some people who beat dead horses and don’t even try to be diverse (*cough*JKROWLING*cough*) at least Riordan is constantly adding more and more young heroes and heroines that are diverse, well-rounded, and important. 

THAT’S GREAT AND I WILL BUY EVERY SINGLE ONE OF HIS DEAD HORSE BEATING NOVELS FIGHT ME
