At first i was a bit dissapointed with virias portrayal of aphrodite. because she simply draw the goddes of love as a blonde woman as opposite to antonio caparo who drew her as someone who changes her appeareance constantly,that seemeed small minded. Then i realized I was the small minded one. Because of course aphrodite would be blonde. she is draw as percy sees her,and to percy the most beautiful of them all would be similar to annabeth. Viria is a genius,isnt she?
i mean not necessarily since aphrodite and venus appear again more than once in the perspectives of different people, and also because it’s mentioned in titan’s curse that she looks a bit like annabeth.
