I am so bitter about the lack of attention that The Dark Prophecy is getting. I am seeing almost no fan art and very little writing and I KNOW that I could probably be the change I want to see and whatever but come on.
Where is all the love for Emmie and Jo, an aging lesbian couple RAISING A CHILD TOGETHER? And they literally run a waystation for demigods who want to live a normal life? Like, why is no one talking about this??
WHERE IS ALL THE LOVE FOR OLUJIME (otherwise known as Jamie/Jimmy bc white ppl can’t pronounce Olujime) a Yoruba demigod who works as a mercenary to pay for his graduate degree in accounting.AND HE CAN CONTROL LIGHTNING TOO, BTW
OR HOW MEG AND APOLLO LITERALLY STARED INTO THE PIT OF PRIMORDIAL CHAOS?? OR HOW MEG HAD BEES COMING OUT OF HER TEAR DUCTS? HOW MEG ALMOST DIED AND APOLLO SAVED HER?? HOW APOLLO ALMOST DIED???? LITERALLY, THEY WERE BOTH ABOUT TO PUT INTO THE FIELDS OF PUNISHMENT AND NO ONE IT TALKING ABOUT THIS WTF THEY DON’T BELIEVE THEY DESERVE ANYTHING ELSE SOMEONE HELP THESE POOR BABIES.
Leo and Calypso’s relationship and how it (at least I believe) is falling apart. All they do is fight like what kind of relationship is that?
HOW LEO AND CALYPSO WERE LEAVING CAMP HALFBLOOD TO LIVE AT THE WAYSTATION AND GO TO HIGH SCHOOL. Seriously, Leo just got back and he’s leaving again? And in the first book all the communication was down for demigods so I guess Calypso and Leo just aren’t coming back and wtf Rick.
HOW TWO BOYS LITERALLY WENT ON A HUNGER STRIKE TO PROTEST COMMODUS.
Styx is coming after Apollo bc of his broken promise?? “Yeah, the goddess of hatred wants to kill me but I got other problems so whatever”
HELOISE THE GRYPHON. Apollo is just so upset over this gryphon’s death.
The elephant that Apollo saves
How Apollo talks about the Hindu pantheon.
APPARENTLY THE HUNTERS OF ARTEMIS HAD NO IDEA THAT NON-GREEK/ROMAN/ DEMIGODS EXIST???? Thalia is just so surprised that Olujime is not Greek/Roman. How have they not experienced any cultures.
It is literally so dark, this has to be the darkest and most depressing book Rick has written so far jfc. The Dark Oracle literally cut off his own brother’s head so they wouldn’t be identified after his brother was crushed by a giant brick for stealing. Georgie nearly went insane she’s like 10 that poor child. And that Nico lookalike Marcus just being brutally decapitated. Damn.
LITYERSES. He survived the war with Gaea and just joined the Triumvirate. AND HE’S A SON OF DEMETER, MAKING HIM MEG’S BROTHER. Him and Leo are bros now, even though Lit is a murderer and having a very serious existential crisis.
Apollo peed on Leo omg I died
GROVER UNDERWOOD IS GOING TO BE A MAIN CHARACTER AGAIN
Rant over. I know people do what they want but I am so bitter about the lack of attention this book is getting and someone needs to stop me because I can probably write another book just on how much I love this book.
