There is a huge amount of sequels that have aired or plan to air this year. Now that we’re halfway through the year I wanted to make a list of all of the sequels that have already come out and what is to come.
I’ll update this most as more are confirmed for this year!
I totally get the sentiment going around that people don’t want Percy to be a god’s champion just because everybody’s doing it, particularly because he’s got such a rough relationship with gods.
But I think that’s because he sought out the Raven Queen first, and the Raven Queen and Percy don’t understand each other. The Raven Queen is fatalistic. In her eyes, humans begin their lives imperfect, march toward their fates, and perhaps they achieve greatness, but they all end the same way: they go to meet her. Percy just doesn’t think in those dimensions. He altered the course of humanity with his invention, and blaming that on fate would be to shirk responsibility. He has seen people defy and defile death time and again. When he pleads with the Raven Queen for a way to fix what he’s done to the world, he is thinking of redemption but also that he lives as long as Whitestone lives, and that the impact of his weakness will matter, will change lives and end them, long after he is gone. The Raven Queen comforts him by saying humanity can achieve great things, but that is no comfort to Percy, whose greatest achievement is arguably the very weapon that killed him.
If there is a god who would understand him it would be Ioun. She’s a goddess of knowledge, an inventor, and like Percy she was betrayed and wounded in the course of invention. Ioun is blinded; Percy’s soul is in tatters thanks to Orthax. She lives in a place of uncomfortable paradox, where all knowledge should be shared for the sake of progress, and secrets are blasphemous, even if that knowledge can hurt or break or kill - but even then, even she has secrets she can’t afford to share. We haven’t seen much of Ioun, but I think she would think like Percy. Not along the threads of fate, like the Raven Queen and her champion, but in an impersonal chemical chain of combination and creation, knowing well the unforeseen impacts of discovery. She despises the aspiring god who took Percy’s family. Her domain is profoundly controversial and unsure. Percy asked his questions of the Raven Queen, and she answered the wrong questions. Ioun has probably asked Percy’s questions a hundred times about herself.
And of course there’s something delightful about the fact that Percy could earn the favour of the goddess that Pelor is protecting.
It’s likely that any number of entities will be fighting over my soul when I die, he says. I know, says the Champion of Pelor, I’ll be one of them.
Your Mars sign indicates anger, reactions, and energy. It indicates what you are like when angry or in arguments.
Mars in Aries: Very defensive and argumentative, they want to get their side across as much as possible. They usually get anger in flashes or moments, it doesn’t last all that long. They get impatient or irritated quickly, and may lash out. They want the action and argument quickly or to be over quickly.
Mars in Taurus: They usually don’t get angry easily or as much, but they let it all build up until they blow up. They take and take things, but then once something small happens they blow up and rage. They need to get it all out and are straightforward. They also get angry when they are rushed.
Mars in Gemini: They have a sharp tongue and talk a lot during the argument, they use logic and their experiences to help them argue. They can usually remain calm for a while, until they get too heated and they start becoming more outwardly angry. They like to resolve the issue and get it out of the way.
Mars in Cancer: They are passive aggressive in anger, and tend to let things build up as well. They avoid confrontation, but want to get it resolved. They blow up and talk about their emotions and how it made them feel, or how they are feeling in that moment. It can drag on for them, or they don’t let it go as easily.
Mars in Leo: They don’t hold back, they will tell you exactly how it is and what is on their mind. They also don’t really think before they speak, so they might hurt your feelings unintentionally or speak harshly without thinking. They may be dramatic when angry or make a scene.
Mars in Virgo: Definitely the type to give the cold shoulder. They are cold and calculated when angry, they like to think about what exactly to say or how to react. They also have sharp tongues, but it is very calculated. They may be silent during an argument or try to remain calm, or they may be arguing and debating forever.
Mars in Libra: They avoid confrontation and arguments in every possible way they can. They try to let it out in small ways or by themselves, or they finally just let it out. They want to come to a solution or resolve it, but don’t like to actually argue or bring it up. They usually hide their anger or feelings to avoid this. They have a good way with words during arguments.
Mars in Scorpio: They may push you to the limit or play games, but they are also very sharp and quick minded during arguments. They may be silent or hard to read during arguments, but they are really just harboring their anger and rage. Once they let it out, it becomes very powerful and consuming. They are pretty hard to get super angry, but they definitely aren’t people you want to make mad.
Mars in Sagittarius: Blunt and straightforward, they argue and argue and argue until they can’t anymore. They know what they are talking about and know what they mean, they don’t stand for any bullshit. They are impatient and restless when angry. They are very persuasive in arguments and know how to get their way or get their point across effectively.
Mars in Capricorn: Also cold and calculated, they keep their cool and are level headed. They are in control of it and keep it under their control, but they do let it out. They are cold and harsh during arguments, they are extremely practical and no nonsense. They are straightforward, but maybe to a fault.
Mars in Aquarius: They are hard to read and decipher during arguments or when angry, they can be fine about something one day and then mad about it the next. They are good at arguments and debating, but they seldom let the other side speak or truly listen to them. They think that they are right and what they feel is the only right thing.
Mars in Pisces: They are sensitive in arguments, but they also play games when angry. They aren’t straightforward and tip toe around the person or issue. They can be unpredictable in anger or angry at unpredictable moments. They like to think about what truly makes them angry or how they feel before they bring it up, or don’t realize what is truly upsetting them.

the bayard is the paladin is the lion: a season 3 prediction
Alternatively titled: Watch This Child Jeopardize Her GPA in Real Time As She Ignores Her Midterms to Write Yet Another Fucking Meta
The lovely @littleblackchats already wrote an awesome post about the symbolism of the bayards for each of the characters in Voltron. But I was wondering: could we take it a step further and use the weapons - and what they say symbolically about the paladins wielding them - to make an informed guess about who’s going to end up in what lion next season?
(even if the answer to that question is no, i’m already writing this so whatever)
Since Allura, Keith, and Lance are the most likely to be swapped into new lions (or, in Allura’s case, to be put into a lion for the first time), I thought it’d be cool to take a look at what the weapons each of them wields says about their personalities, and whether that can give us hints as to who’s gonna be the Black Paladin next season while Shiro’s gone.
Alright, so in episode 1, Allura tells us that a lion’s quintessence is mirrored in its paladin, and that the paladin shapes the bayard. So lion = paladin = bayard. The lion and paladin should be similar in personalty, and the bayard should be compatible to the paladin’s style of fighting and personality as well. This is shown really well in Hunk and Pidge: Pidge’s weapon is small (like her), electric (reflecting her interest in computers), and made for precision (Pidge is more interested in finding clever solutions than just brute-forcing problems), while Hunk’s is big (just like him), long-range (reflecting his wish to stay distanced from conflict), and packs a punch (Hunk is the strongest character on the team, after all).
So the weapons tell us something about the personalities of the ones using them. But what can their respective weapons tell us about Keith, Lance, and Allura?
This is just a theory I have, I’d love to know if others agree! I think people can land anywhere in between the two types depending on the rest of their chart (especially mercury placements), although some can distinctly be one or the other. I labeled which one I have found to be more common :)
