but oh well

Early in this morning, me and my cousin went to the public market. And we saw a man, he was screaming like ‘free hugs, free hugs’ he was saying that whoever need a hug, whoever feel sad, he’s free to give you a hug. I don’t know why, but I went near him, there’s something about his eyes. He smiled at me and then asked me if I want a hug, I said yes. My cousin touched my left hand, I looked at him, and he was like ‘what the f*ck are you doing? He’s a stranger’ yeah, that’s what I could read in his mind. But I couldn’t control myself, and then I hugged him. I felt different, maybe that was just seconds. He said ‘pray okay? thank you’ then he left. You know what the real thing I’ve felt? He was so cold, there was something I can’t understand and all I wanted was to get closer to his heartbeat and I was so curious. Then, a woman went near me and she said, that man’s daughter died last Monday night, she committed suicide in a brutal way, she cut her wrist, then hung herself. I knew it from the moment I saw that man, he was carrying something, I didn’t even have the time to have doubts, I don’t understand, it was like he called for someone to lessen his sadness, so that he won’t break down while walking on the market. It was weird for me, but his hug feels good, I know I am sad too, but I guess a hug he wants to give to others, is what he really needs the most.

Friendly reminder that -

  • Percy’s neutral expression is a natural brooding look that he gets from Poseidon
  • That when he does smile it’s crooked and makes him look like a trouble maker
  • When he talks it’s usually very sarcastic and/or impertinent 
  • His inner monologue is actually very negative and while we, as the readers, take it as a joke he’s usually pretty pessimistic for a good portion of the time
  • That when he’s fighting his expression is fierce and is hard to tell whether he is the good guy or not
  • That Leo Valdez equated Percy’s angry expression to the feeling he gets when Jason is about to shoot lightning. Let me repeat - just the look on Percy’s face when he’s angry was considered on par to Jason controlling flipping lightning
  • That he’s very very vindictive and loyal only to those he considers his friends and once you lose his trust it is nearly impossible to earn back 
  • That while he had the curse of achilles, he laughed crazily while he was single handedly destroying hordes of monsters
  • He made an entire volcano erupt, awakened a giant, and almost wiped out the northwest of the united states
  • He tortured a godess just so she would feel his misery
  • That he’s actually very manipulative and it made Annabeth step back for a moment and reevaluate her perception of him
  • That while his dark side came to it’s peak in house of hades and wasn’t mentioned in blood of olympus, there was no confirmation that it suddenly and completely disappeared after they left Tartarus.
  • Has been the child of the prophecy twice.
  • He manipulated Bob to kill his own brother by simply convincing him that they were friends and that is what friends did for each other
  • He was physically abused by his step father
  • That with absolutely no training at all he killed the minotaur with it’s own horn at the mere age of twelve
  • He wins a good majority of his fights by simply outsmarting his opponent 
  • He has scared not only Annabeth but his friends and peers on more than one occasion with his attitude and powers
  • That he’s considered extremely powerful for a demigod and for a child of the big three and makes the gods slightly nervous
  • That when he’s upset his powers act to mimic his emotions without him even trying
  • Has been offered immortality
  • That he is actually really sorta intimidating without trying 
  • That we need to stop reducing Percy’s character to a happy-go-lucky comic relief goofball that doesn’t know his left foot from right because he is so much more than that
