What if

Poseidon noticed sally because she was fierce, she was strong and still she was lovely. She reminded him of a goddess as she stared at the sea, and He loved the warrior woman who still was sweet. What if the reason she’s still alive even tho she’s the mother of a child of the big three is that she reminds everyone of a goddess. And nobody messes with a goddess.

Rick Riordan and Polynesian Mythology

OMG I just saw Moana and all I could think about was WHAT IF RICK RIORDAN HAD A SERIES ABOUT POLYNESIAN GODS AND DEMIGODS AND IF THE KIDS STAYED ON A TROPICAL ISLAND TO PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM NON-DEMIGODS

Hephaestus told his story about growing up at the bottom of the sea. ‘And I brought presents!’ He unpacked the big bundles from his mules. 'New thrones for everyone!’

'Thrones!’ Ares leaped up and danced with excitement.

The other gods were a little more wary, but they got pretty psyched when they saw Hephaestus’s workmanship.

Zeus got a solid gold seat with cup holders on the arms, lumbar support, and a built-in rack for lightning bolts. Demeter’s throne was shaped from gold and silver cornstalks. Poseidon got a sea captain’s chair with a place for his trident and his fishing pole. Ares’s iron throne was upholstered in leather with lots of uncomfortable spikes and barbed wire on the armrests.

'I love it,’ Ares said. 'Is this Corinthian leather?’

'Mortal skin, actually,’ Hephaestus said.

Ares got teary-eyed. 'This is the nicest gift… I– I can’t even…’

All of the gods’ new thrones were fully adjustable with wheels, so in no time the Olympians were rolling around the palace and spinning in their seats.
