Disturb not the harmony of fire, ice or lightning, lest these titans wreak destruction upon the world in which they clash. Though the water’s great guardian shall arise to quell the fighting, alone its song will fail, and thus the earth shall turn to ash. O Chosen One, into thine hands bring together all three. Their treasures combined tame the Beast of the Sea.

To Storm or Fire the world must fall - Explanation!

(Or at least part of it)

Okay, okay. So when Leo gets blown to Calypso’s island, Jason and the rest get stuck with Auster, the god of the South Wind.
And you know how he is always changing, from Greek to Roman, from hot to stormy?
Well, in the end Jason chooses Greek, so the venti and the god become all Greek and turn completely into their dry, hot, fiery selves.
And then the god tells Jason that when the choice comes again, storm or fire, so Greek or Roman(!), not to despair!
Do you realise what this means??

To storm or fire the world must fall

This doesn’t mean Leo or Jason/Percy, the way it was mostly interpretated!
It means Greek or Roman, like Notus/Auster said!
The fire is Greek, the storm is Roman, it makes perfect sense!
How it will literally work out in the end I have no idea, but I’m almost 100% sure that this is part of the solution!

What I really enjoyed about The Lego Movie, and it’s not just the action and comedy, it was the main message. It is so powerful, and I thought it would be nice to share it here.

So to everyone who has stopped by my tumblr, to offer encouragement, friendship, and even mentorship, thank you. You are the Special, you are capable of amazing things, so don’t give up. :) 

Astrologers were greatly impressed, and misled, by what they believed to be confirming evidence–so much so that they were quite unimpressed by any unfavorable evidence. Moreover, by making their interpretations and prophecies sufficiently vague they were able to explain away anything that might have been a refutation of the theory had the theory and the prophecies been more precise. In order to escape falsification they destroyed the testability of their theory. It is a typical soothsayer’s trick to predict things so vaguely that the predictions can hardly fail: that they become irrefutable.

Recently, I had the wonderful opportunity to ask Ellen Oh a few questions about her books Prophecy and its sequel Warrior. Prophecy is a fantastic Korean-inspired fantasy with an awesome female heroine. Warrior will be released on December 31st, 2013.

What inspired you to write a Korean style fantasy?

It started with Genghis Khan. Back in the year 2000, Genghis Khan was named Man of the Millennium by Time magazine. I remember buying that issue and reading all about him and thinking how cool it was that an Asian man was considered the most influential man of the millennium. So I went and bought a bunch of biographies on Genghis and I just fell in love with all the Asian history I learned. It made me crave more information. But it was actually really hard to find a lot of books on ancient Korea. And there was hardly any fiction novels at all other than Linda Sue Park’s classic novel A Single Shard. This is really the reason I began writing again (I hadn’t written creatively since college.) I just felt that all these amazing historical facts would make for a great novel…
