book for heroes

i used to romanticize the shit out of everything and it wasn’t until recently that i realized; no one is going to swoop in with a cape and save me from jumping off the tallest building. nobody is going to drive to my house at 2am just to wipe away my tears and that’s okay. i am wearing a cape too, i can save myself, i can wipe away my tears. i fell in love with the idea of having a hero but what i failed to realize is that i can be my own hero when everyone else is too busy to see me falling. and yes, there will be times where other people save you and that’s okay. just make sure at the end of the day you’re still wearing a cape too.

At the Bookstore:
  • Book: hi I'm all sweet with a good ending
  • Me: hm promising
  • Book: I will wreck your heart and your future and make you feel things you never have before like true pain and sorrow
  • Me: I'll taKE IT

I don’t know. A side quest where these three go undercover as young offenders in order to find an item/save someone. In which Percy and Leo are in their element as delinquents and Jason is struggling internally and cannot get into character to save his life.

Or maybe I just want a straight-up Holes AU.

Fucking Rick Riordan, man

Magnus Chase: the Hammer of Thor was fucking amazing??? Rick is basically educating the youth on so many topics/issues going on right now: a transgender & gender fluid child of Loki (as his/her mom), some LGBT+ kids being shunned out of their houses and forced to be homeless, racial prejudice in the police system, potential hardships a deaf person could face in a deaf-shaming world, cultural appropriation, human trafficking. Not to mention the hostilities he destroys (like the arranged marriage between Samirah and Amir being the cutest thing, and Sam taking flight lessons). AND PRETTY CLEAR IMPLICATIONS OF SWORD SEX????

I just love how Rick is just like, “fuck the system I’ll put all this shit in a children’s book.” he’s passed caring about what the public might think now that he’s on his bajillionth book. my idol

okay but rick riordan’s books 

  • basically mythology lessons 
  • racial diversity
  • LGBT+ awareness
  • show that stuff like ADHD and dyslexia don’t have to be problems
  • easy to read without being boring for more advanced readers
  • good humour
  • the movies aren’t a big part of their success
  • no swearing/implicit themes
  • well-developed characters
  • not only a series but multiple series
  • show you that anyone can be a hero

why would you not want your child to read these books I don’t understand
