I LOVE THEM OKAY

“I need someone… to show me my place in all this…”

not to be totally correct,, but percabeth is the most well paced, healthy, non problematic hetero relationships in the whole we-grew-up-together/enemies-to-friends-to-lovers tropes. Like, usually in these kind of relationships, especially in kids books, it’s rushed, not helpful to the girls’ story line as she’s just used as a romantic plot device, and it’s just heteronormative and uninteresting. But with percabeth, their crushes on each other were well established (and not just out of the blue @ the end of the story), it was well paced, Annabeth obviously had her own characteristics and plot and her character didn’t revolve around her romantic life, and if anything, percabeth only made annabeths’ complex storyline more wholesome (she lost luke, she lost thalia, and she grew up not happy in her home. She was used to having the people she love disappear or turn their backs on her, and that created trust issues evident throughout the story. her and percy getting together shows that she moved past this and she now has a stable person she can put her trust in). At this point im rambling but yeah. percabeth is non problematic, very healthy, beneficial to both Annabeth and Percy’s storylines, and rick made it cannon in a way that did not enforce heteronormaty. thanks for coming to my TED talk.

I’m watching clips from ep 102 and got to Travis shielding Ashley with his body and briefly thought about when someone mentioned that Ashley and Travis didn’t even know each other before the game started and Ashley just sorta went “Okay, that’s fine.”  when Matt offered to make Pike part of Grog’s backstory to bring her into the game and now YEARS LATER Travis is just SHIELDING HER WITH HIS BODY AND WHETHER IT WAS JOKING OR SERIOUS IT’S STILL SWEET.
