unfriendly reminder that the hunters of artemis had to “foreswear romantic love forever” (said by artemis herself in chapter three of the titan’s curse) and are not gay, but instead have been confirmed to be ace/aro by rick riordan:
The Titan’s Curse: Artemis is captured and forced to hold up the sky. Apollo is ordered not to intervene. Apollo disguises himself as a hobo and gives Percy important directions for his quest.
The Dark Prophecy: Apollo is made human and forced to undertake a series of incredibly dangerous quests. Artemis is ordered not to intervene. The Hunters of Artemis just so happen to be in the right place at the right time to save Apollo’s life.
Thalia hugging Percy at the end of Titans Curse, saying he is her friend and as handing him the position of hero of the prophecy, bc she was too fed up with all the bullshit from the gods, being a tree and loosing a brother and she wanted to be alive
i would give anything for the complete Thalia story
Zoe all formal and aloof like a princess, Thalia with her ratty clothes and her rebel attitude. But there was something similar about them, too. The same kind of roughness. Right now, sitting in the shadows with a gloomy expression, Thalia looked a lot like one of the Hunters.
