Fictional characters do exist, not in our world of course, we’d be screwed if that ever happened. But in the world of our minds, they are the main population there. They bring colour and life to it, they are the little voices in your head telling you not to do something because it’ll end up bad.
People who don’t read and scoff at people who like reading, they will never have that. Their minds will be grey and boring, they’ll never know the pleasure and pain that it is to love someone so much, even though you can’t physically touch them.
So if anyone ever laughs at you for reading and being imaginative, pity them. Because they will grow old and boring, their lives will be sad and plain while yours will be full of the adventures you shared with the fictional characters in the books you love.
My Literature teacher, when she saw that someone was making fun of me because I like reading.
“In an awkward moment, the two boys tried to sit in the same chair at the head of the table. Sparks literally flew from Jason’s hands. After a brief silent standoff, like they were both thinking, Seriously, dude?, they ceded the chair to Annabeth and sat at opposite sides of the table.”

So you know how the curse of Achilles makes you really sleepy and even Chiron tells Percy that when Achilles wasn’t fighting he was sleeping? Like that must mean lots of sleeping percy after tlo so consider this:
annabeth leaning against a tree, drawing blueprints and percy falling asleep on her shoulder accidentally and her staying there till he wakes up
percy going to the beach laying down for one sec and falling asleep with the sounds of the wave (and waking up w/ an awkward tan)
sally finding percy asleep on the couch even though it’s early and throwing a blanket over him
annabeth coming over to study and percy just laying his head on her lap and falling asleep for the entirety of it
percy constantly denying he’s sleepy in between a yawn
percy taking a seat after sword fighting to cool off only to be found sleeping with his head bent and drool coming out of his mouth
annabeth studying the soft lines of his face when he falls asleep on him b/c he looks so peaceful and adorable
percy literally falling asleep during every movie night w/ annabeth ever
bedhead hair forever
paul giving percy a pass to sleep in his class b/c he knows why
percy falling asleep in the strawberry fields only to realize someone’s drawn something on his face
puffy sleep filled eyes
waking up confused and like oh shit sorry annabeth
adamantly claiming to everyone he’s not sleepy at all only to have his eyes half closed and in a perpetual state of dozing
“I’m getting us to the beach. I fight better near water.” “Becuase Posiedon?” Meg asked, steadying herself against the door handle. “Yep,” Percy agreed. “That pretty much describes my entire life: Because Posiedon.” // THE TRIALS OF APOLLO
