- “A boy in the crowd gasped, ‘she’s a communist!’” (127) i fucking hate this book omfg

i’ll do more later in order to mentally prepare myself for the dark prophecy but it’s 3 am and im tired  

Okay. I am constantly bothered by a few things in The Burning Maze which either don’t make sense to me or is contradictory to Rick’s previous books. Let’s start the rant:

  • Mellie being mad at Jason- Piper broke up with Jason for reasons I understand. But why was Mellie upset with Jason? She knew Jason’s character well. Then why was there some hostility towards him. Even now I am unsure of the real reason. Either she did not know anything about the break up and decided to take Piper’s side or Piper lied to her. Both of which I find unsatisfying.
  • Grover not meeting Reyna- Excuse me? Have we forgotten the iconic scene in which Grover is nearly put to death because he says Reyna’s initials aloud? That was one of the most important scenes because Reyna was entrusted to bring the Athena Parthenos by the Greeks. That is just poor writing in Rick’s part. Can’t he even remember his own writing?
  • Grover not having met Piper and Jason- Grover’s absence was noted in HOO. But even this is a very low blow from Rick. The Burning Maze happens about 6 months after the Second Giant War. That means that there was plenty time for Grover to go visit his best friends. Even before that when Percy was missing for 6 months Grover was in the camp. So you’re telling me that he did not meet Piper who was in the same camp probably a few feet away?!
  • Piper and Leo leaving Jason’s body with Apollo- Apparently Leo and Piper who were the closest friends to Jason did not accompany him to his funeral and left his dead body with a stranger that is Apollo. WHAT? Piper and Leo and the rest of the seven are a family. However they were quick to leave Jason behind and move on to their own lives. Seriously? That is the most fucked up thing that Rick has ever written. I’m pissed.
  • Piper and Jason didn’t know Leo was alive- Percy and the entire camp saw Leo swooping in with Festus and Calypso. I refuse to believe that no one would try to contact with Piper and Jason and tell them the news. No communication system worked around the demigods. But Sally could have called to let them know. Or by any other means. Also Piper and Percy have bonded enough for him to tell her about the cursed shoes. You think he wouldn’t have tried to contact with her at least?

I can remember these things for now. Except these few important details the book was good. But not spectacular and definitely not worth rereading.

I’m the one who believes that when Hedge and Mellie are accompanying Tristan McLean in the filming or recording, Piper and Jason are babysitters of little Chuck? 

You can imagine how sweet is this? Like… Caring little Chuck makes them forget their problems (aka Leo Valdez)

anonymous asked:

Who in the book is told about Jason’s death throughout?

So, the only ones who witness his death firsthand are Piper, Meg, and Apollo. Through secondhand info the following learn: Coach Hedge, Mellie, Grover, and Leo. 

From The Ship of the Dead, we can assume Annabeth and Percy are about to find out .And the book ends with Apollo and Meg taking Jason’s coffin back to Camp Jupiter, where Reyna, Hazel, and Frank are about to find out…if Hazel couldn’t already sense it. On that note, Nico likely has sensed it and told Camp Half-Blood.


 i talked @ meabhd about hedge and nellie and how they’d relate to their kid and she said  "hedge would be a soccer mom". yes. i concurred with that statement have this thing that corresponds i am sorry for lateness. 

also their kid would be named Arden- which means “great forest”

can u name some inconstistencies w pjo and the hoo series?!?!

well anon i’m glad you asked buckle up your seat belts this is going to be a long post

these are what i’ve kept a list on and looked up to make sure i’m correct, i’ve skipped a few very minor ones, or ones i don’t know about 


•Sally says that Poseidon and her are together for just a summer but Percy’s birthday is August 18th. Unless Sally can give birth like a week later, and I wouldn’t put it past Momma Jackson, she and Poseidon would’ve had to,you know, around January.

•Luke says that Hermes is the god of many things and lists of a few (messengers, medicine, travelers, etc.) but Apollo is the medicine god

•since Uncle Rick  probably didn’t have any idea he was going to do it later on, i’ll let this one slide but it’s said multiple times that the Titans are like Gods so it’s basically impossible to kill them, and are imprisoned but Jason (HoH) is revealed to have somehow managed to kill Krios

•since the Gateway Arch in St. Louis is a good 500 feet away from the Mississippi River, Percy must have flown over 500 feet when he fell from the arch into the river


•Thalia is in Percy’s dreams and in them she has stormy green eyes, but later when Thalia is freed from the tree her eyes are electric blue (Rick admitted that he accidentally goofed that)

•a bunch of you guys have probably heard of this one but when Blackjack was saved from the Princess Andromeda, Percy calls him female, yet he’s male the rest of the series.


•Percy asks if Iris messages can be used to contact gods, but he already contacted Dionysus with and Iris message last book

•Ares curse was “Every time you raise your blade in battle, every time you hope for success, you will feel my curse. Beware Perseus Jackson” but Percy remembers it as “When you need it most, your sword will fail you”

•Thalia says that the apples of immortality were a wedding gift to Hera from Zeus,they were actually given by Gaea.

•Zoe and Bianca die that was not supposed to happen


Nothing really that important, good job 


• a few misprints/misspellings

•The end of the Second Olympian War/The First Great Prophecy was on August 18, Percy’s birthday. But Percy spent five days at the Lotus Hotel so he is actually five days younger than 16. 

•Percy fights the Clazmonian Sow and correctly calls it a she/her, but then calls it a he/him.

•After Silena dies Annabeth says “We have to fight”, later she mutters something about Luke and Percy says that was the first thing she had said since Silena died


•During the fight on Mt Diablo, Enceladus mentions that Jason had killed the Titan Krios. This is different than what Hermes told Percy, that Titans cannot be killed. (as mentioned earlier)

•Rachel’s new school is said to be in Connecticut, but befor it wasn’t it was in New Hampshire

•Jason gets his memories back and says Hazel is one of his good friends but later Hazel is like idk who this guy is he’s perfect i’ve never really talked to him

•Hera says Gods can’t dream but before Ares had dreams where he was influence to try to kill Percy (TLT)


•Thanatos tells Frank that they will meet again but they don’t

•Hazel is told by Pluto that a descendant of Neptune can help end her curse but it’s not mentioned again until the last book



•Hazel tells Leo she hasn’t hd a flashback in a long time but it’s been a week tops since her last one

•After the Argo 2s escape Percy sees the sunset over the live feed playing of Camp Halfblood, there’s only a four hour difference and it would’ve been around 4-5 in New York so….

•Nemesis says she is Nemesis in Greek/Roman but in roman she is actually Invidia

•Percy says he knew the Romans for week but he spent ten days there including his quest

•Frank says he can only read his family name in chinese (SoN) but now he can somehow read enough chinese to find a location marked on a chinese map by a chinese tourist


•The bright red Fiat that smashed Arachne into Tartarus is baby blue now??

•Piper calls her dad assistant Jessica when her name is Jane (Rick said he forgot her name)

•Nico says he and Bianca stayed in the Lotis for a month but earlier in the series Bianca said they stayed for an hour

•Nico is force to come out this is one of the things i’m the most pissed about

•last time mentioning it i swear Krios says Jason killed him at Mt Othrys

•Jason, Frank, Coach Hedge all call Mellie a cloud nymph she is actually an aura/wind nymph 


•Hazels curse isn’t mentioned as being “"washed away”

•Nico, who designed and helped build the Hades cabin (TLO) said he didn’t

•Gaea is destroyed in like two minutes


•instead of getting the poor boy some help, Octavian is just catapulted/shot away

I have a measley list of Kane Chronicle ones compared to this so i may post that later but feel free to add on


Is anybody else wondering what the “bad news” Annabeth told Magnus about is???

Like, Annabeth and Percy were in California.

Jason, Piper, Piper’s Dad, Hedge, Mellie, and Chuck were all in California last we heard.

Or maybe it’s something about New Rome and Camp Jupiter?

Fuck the What is up Uncle Rick????

anonymous asked:

"And even after Piper breaks up with him. What the ever-loving fuck that only solidifies the impression that really nothing works without shipping. Now that he’s single, he’s expendable." PHOE, I LOVE YOU. I was sure that his overly romantic mind broke them up so that his one true love doesn't die from devastation. Because you know, Romantic love is the strongest thing ever in RR's mind and killing a character would hurt their gf/bf more than, say, their useless siblings or ew, friends. *sighs*


Yeeeah. Like, I was surprised when I read they broke up but then I read that Jason died and I just scoffed. Seriously. Oh, it won’t hurt anyone now that the True Love is broken up and played down.

NOT TO MENTION I fucking hate that Riordan only has two paces - True Love or Doesn’t Matter.

Like, Reyna’s name was the first that Jason remembered and the way she acted about him, there was more. But Riordan could not possibly even let Jason have an ex girlfriend because it would have invalidated his True Love ship of Piper and Jason, so he completely canned that.

And now, when they break up, Piper breaks up because supposedly there never was anything - totally invalidating Piper and Jason’s relationship so… Piper’s next ship can be True Love.

That’s not how relationships work. That’s not how love works.

Jason could have dated Reyna prior to Piper and it would have changed nothing.

Jason and Piper could have grown apart and broken up without completely invalidating the ship.

Seriously, shipping is the only thing Riordan cares about and the way he perceives relationships is just not… healthy. Because that’s not how they work.

But just look at them. Look at the more important characters we met throughout the books.

Percy and Annabeth, Grover and Juniper, Charles and Silena, Chris and Clarisse, Nico and Will, Piper and Jason, Leo and Calypso, Frank and Hazel, Hedge and Mellie, Thalia the Huntress but prior to that it was Luke and Thalia, Rachel the Virgin Oracle.

The Stoll brothers and Reyna are literally the only larger characters who did not get shipped off, get forced into an eternal virgin deal or die. And it’s legit pathetic.

#Superhero AU [AO3] | First | <<Prev | Next>>

“No plan survives contact with the enemy.”

– NICO –

Nico stood under a crystal chandelier in one of the ballrooms of The Principia. He held a glass of red wine in one hand, and the other pinched the bridge of his nose as he tried to decide if there was an inconspicuous corner he could hide in.

Well, you saw Percy. He and Annabeth are spending their senior year in New York. Hazel and Frank are at Camp Jupiter doing the Twelfth Legion thing.” (…)“Jason and Piper are spending the school year in Los Angeles with Piper’s dad. They took Coach Hedge, Mellie, and Little Chuck with them.” (…)
“And the seventh hero…Leo Valdez?” (…)
“Well, Leo isn’t here. He died. Then he came back to
life. And if I see him again, I’ll kill him.

A Drabbly Birthday

Short drabbles involving Nico di Angelo. Happy fifteenth birthday, you crazy hellraising cutie. One-shot. Fluff, sibling bonding, Reyna/Nico bonding, and Solangelo. Not necessarily related to “How not to Get Your OTP Together.” T for slight swearing.

First Drabble-Bianca’s Support

“And then,” Nico chattered, skipping alongside Bianca with his hand in hers, “he said that he couldn’t wait to see me at school tomorrow again! Can you believe it, Bianca?”

Bianca chuckled. “Of course I can, soldato. Why wouldn’t I?”

Nico shrugged. “I don’t know. But it’s just…Benedetto is so cool and amazing and-and wow!”

Bianca smiled again at her little brother’s antics. “What, do you love him?” she teased, positive that her baby brother would respond in his typical childish fashion.

She discovered that she was right as he nodded his head eagerly. “Yeah, I think I do! He’s just really cool and nice and I wouldn’t mind marrying him and-Bianca?”
