In other news, I went to read Rick’s Q & A and … I got the feeling that Jason Grace, Piper McLean, Hazel Levesque, Frank Zhang and Reyna Avila Ramirez Arellano are close …

percy jackson is the best at bottle flipping and no one can convince me otherwise

Seven half-bloods shall answer the call,
To storm or fire, the world must fall,
An oath to keep with a final breath,
And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death

I finished this tonight in honor of the end of the semester and I could not be more happy with the end result.

I’m torn between being really proud and extremely ashamed
Either way, I’d trust them with the fate of modern civilization

(original meme here and here)

things that could have been done with leo and frank’s relationship:

  1. understanding each other’s pain because they both lost their mothers whom they loved very much 
  2. leo immediately looking out for frank after finding out frank’s one weakness is fire
  3. leo being scared because he’s worried he’ll cause frank’s death the same way he caused his mother’s and as a result, always trying to gain frank’s trust 
  4. frank making sure leo doesn’t feel left out and always having his back bc he knows what it’s like to be the insignificant one and feel like you’ll never do anything great 
  5. fucking genuine friendship instead of a contrived love triangle no one wanted 

Detail reminders for drawing pjo/hoo:

  • all demigods have scars, draw them
  • there’s a difference between trade scars which can be added per drawing and by how much combat the character is likely to have seen (ie Nico has tons of scars, Clarisse and Annabeth have a fair few, where as Drew and Will probably don’t have as many), and distinctive scars which are noted in the books and can help identify a character. distinctive scars include:
    • Jason has a scar on his lip (from trying to eat a stapler when he was a baby)
    • Hylla has a scar across her forehead (from dueling for her and Reyna’s freedom from the pirates)
    • as of boo Nico has claw scars across his upper arms, probably starting at his shoulders (from killing Lycaon)
    • Luke has a scar down the side of his face (from a quest to get an apple I think, I don’t remember)
  • Other injuries that probably left scars:
    • it’s possible both Percy and Sally have scars from Gabe
    • Percy’s encounter with the pit scorpion at the end of tlt, on his palm
    • the ship exploding in som probably gave Tyson quite a few scars
    • the poisoned blade Annabeth took for Percy in tlo, on her upper arm
    • anyone in the battle of manhattan probably got a few scars from it
    • Gwen getting stabbed through the chest with a pilum during the war games in son, probably on her upper chest with a matching scar slightly lower on her back
    • Hazel’s death, though oil killed her she did die in a cave in and even though she got a new body her scars may have carried over
    • Nico’s trek through tartarus
    • when Cupid shot Nico in the shoulder with one of his arrows
    • Percy and Annabeth’s trek through tartarus
    • Percy and Annabeth’s encounter with the Arai (the curses of their enemies)
    • when Jason got stabbed from behind at the beginning of boo, on his abdomen both front and back
    • the gash on the side of Annabeth’s neck at the end of boo
    • Leo’s faked death at the end of boo
  • Jason has a gap in his hair from a bullet as of hoh
  • Frank is chubby up until hoh when Mars (unfortunately) decides to “fix” him by making him taller and more muscular
  • for at least the first four books Annabeth is taller than Percy
  • Percy has a tooth gap
  • Piper braids feathers from spoils of war into her hair
  • Hazel is African American
  • Piper is Native American
  • Leo is Latino
  • Reyna and Hylla are Latina (from Puerto Rico)
  • Frank is Chinese Canadian
  • Drew and Ethan are Japanese (assumed from their last names)
  • Nico’s skin colour is never stated, only that he has an olive undertone and that from botl onward he gets steadily more sickly pale (though as of the end of boo it looks like he’s beginning to lead a healthier lifestyle)
  • Percy’s camp necklace has six beads as of the end of boo
  • Annabeth’s has at least ten beads and her father’s college ring
  • Clarisse, Will, the Stolls, and other campers who are assumed to have been there before Percy probably have a similar amount
  • Jason, Piper, and Leo’s necklaces all have one bead
  • Nico’s necklace has anywhere from one to three beads on it, depending on whether or not they gave him ones for his aid in the battle of the labyrinth (probably not) and the battle of manhattan (more likely since he stayed for a while after)
  • both Nico and Reyna have rings that they twist when they’re anxious/thinking, Nico’s is the shape of a skull and Reyna’s has the symbol of Bellona and is most likely a seal ring
  • Frank’s bow and quiver can turn into a backpack
  • Frank spends the majority of their journey in pants that are too small for him because Leo’s an asshole (he loses his extra pants to Leo’s bullying in moa and they go clothes shopping for him in boo)
  • added onto that, Frank spends a while after his transformation in hoh in clothes that don’t fit until they get him new ones in boo
  • Leo has pointy elfish ears
  • both Percy and Leo are described as having lopsided, troublemaker grins
  • Nico is described as having dark bags under his eyes and looking sickly, and post moa is described as extremely malnourished (though this seems to be slowly getting better by the end of boo)
  • the longer the books go on the tanner Jason gets and the lighter his hair gets
  • Jason grew up on the coast of CA and probably can’t handle weather or anything under 68° F without many layers
  • Reyna’s cape is purple and glimmers gold in the light as of Athena’s blessing near the end of boo
  • Percy’s eyes are sea green
  • Hazel’s eyes are gold
  • Piper’s eyes change colour
  • Annabeth’s eyes are stormy gray
  • Jason and Thalia’s eyes are electric blue
  • don’t let the official art constrain your character designs

This is all I can think of right now, if I missed anything or got anything wrong feel free to add to the list/correct me, I’m a little shaky on what happened in what book…
