It is the view of the Ministry that a theoretical knowledge will be sufficient to get you through your examinations, which after all is what school is all about. And how is theory supposed to prepare us for what’s out there? There is nothing out there, dear.
“Maybe, he thought, there aren’t any such things as good friends or bad friends - maybe there are just friends, people who stand by you when you’re hurt and who help you feel not so lonely. Maybe they’re always worth being scared for, and hoping for, and living for. Maybe worth dying for too, if that’s what has to be. No good friends. No bad friends. Only people you want, need to be with; people who build their houses in your heart.”
hey i’ll be eternally annoyed that percy’s gone to new rome university or w/e the it’s called, but like I can’t stop thinking about the dynamic of him being the first Greek to ever study at their university or like just the first student to study there that’s not from new rome or wasn’t in the legion. I mean the Greeks and Romans have baggage that goes back centuries and you can’t tell me everyone would accept the Greeks coming and living with open hands ya kno?
(I’m assuming he’s the first demigod from camp half-blood/anyone to study there that hasn’t been living in new Rome for a while.)
