book: mark of athena

“Once they got on board and changed into dry clothes (poor Frank had to borrow a pair of too-small pants from Jason) the crew all gathered on the quarterdeck for a celebratory breakfast”

oops okay I guess that means Frank is definitely bigger than Jason :D

also this gem:

“Incredible,” Jason said. “These are really good brownies.”

“That’s your only comment?” Piper demanded.

He looked surprised. “What? I heard the story. Fish-centaurs. Merpeople. Letter of intro to the Tiber River god. Got it. But these brownies—”

“I know,” Frank said, his mouth full. “Try them with Esther’s peach preserves.”

“That,” Hazel said, “is incredibly disgusting.”

“Pass me the jar, man,” Jason said.

Hazel and Piper exchanged a look of total exasperation. Boys.

Can we all just take a second though and remember the original reason that Leo teases Frank?
It’s not really about Hazel and it’s not just for the fun of it either
I’m not excusing Leo at all….he was mean and insensitive
But I think people forget why
He spends months of his life (forsaking most of the CHB activities and making friends) building the Argo II which no one thanks him for
And he gets freaking POSSESSED
And his crew mates, friends, people he’s supposed to trust are willing to trust a stranger more than him?
Again, it doesn’t excuse his actions, but you can almost understand why he wouldn’t exactly want to be BFFs with Frank
He literally represents that time when people who he considers friends reject him (which sounds an awful lot like what happened with his aunt rosa and his family)
Obviously it’s not the exact same circumstance and again, I’m not excusing Leo’s actions
But, I feel like people forget this little scene in MoA

((And it doesn’t help that Frank starts asking weird questions right away))
