Idk man like I get that Luke was pissed with the gods and had every right to be angry in which made him the perfect person to become and be Kronos but like are we also going to ignore how shitty he was for like making Percy beleive he had a friend or someone to look up to, be betrayed, turned his back on Annabeth when he promised her that they'd always be a family (and spent like his last literal moment of life asking if she loved him) luke was a shitty person just saying ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Anon, you have no idea how enraged you have made me over the past few hours. I’m going to let you know I’m pissed, I’m not going to hide it, why would I? You need to know just how angry I am, because that has literally driven me to writing this answer. Before I start with the topic of Luke Castellan in general, let’s get a few things out of the way. The first thing, is going to be debunking this absolutely horrid and stereotypical ask you sent me in the first place.

  • There’s no need in telling me Luke was an absolute imbecile when it came to his judgment skills, we all know he absolutely failed that test.
  • Not once on this blog have I ever said in my life, that what Luke did to Annabeth wasn’t shitty. It was so horrible, Luke and Annabeth’s relationship was manipulative. He knew she looked up to him and he used it against her and that’s not okay. But just because he was manipulating her, does not automatically rule out the fact that he couldn’t have been being manipulated himself.
  • PSA: Because I know I’m going to have to repeat myself, I’m not excusing his behavior. I’m looking at the bigger picture.
  • Lastly, saying Luke was a shitty person because he made Percy believe he was his friend, is a weak argument and wouldn’t make it very far in an actual debate on the grounds that: Percy knew Luke a total of like what, a week? Luke, more likely than not, knew Percy was the target from the very start and treated him like a friend on purpose. He was being manipulative for who? Oh, I think we all know that. And Percy was not nearly as blinded as Annabeth this early on. He got pissed off the second he figured out it was Luke and he stayed pissed off. Percy was fully aware of what Luke was doing and he wasn’t even a quarter as affected by Luke’s betrayal than Annabeth was.
  • And that last thing, about the love thing? I’m going to get to that at the very end when we get into Luke’s character, but feel free to scroll all the way down right now.

Right now though, we’re not going to talk about Luke right away, because we all know Luke! He was a spectacularly written character! We know him very well, but do you know someone that no one seems to pay attention to? The very cannibalistic, titan lord that was canonically labeled “The Wicked One” in this series.

(I’m putting this under a read more because it’s just that long, but my read more’s on asks haven’t been working lately, so I’m really sorry if you all get stuck with this long post on your dashboards.)

Keep reading

Hi! I've been aware of your existence ever since I started discovering the simblr community, but -god knows why- I haven't read your legacy stories yet. Now I'm here, completely blown away, and just about to start reading from the beginning. Your writing is so intelligent and neatly worded, so put together, but then again, sometimes so funny, that honestly, I don't even mind a naked sim butt here and there. I guess what I'm saying is, I love what you do so much!

Wow, I- Wow. I don’t even know what to say 😶 I mean, I’m good speechless, not bad speechless 😁 Thank you!! You know, there are compliments that go to your heart, that feel great. But there are compliments that go to your mind, they like… caress it? What I’m trying to say is that you basically just kissed my brain and I really liked it 😂 Nah, but I’m serious. My mind and my heart are equal. And while people easily can touch my heart, only few of them manage to touch my mind as well. When it happens it’s priceless. Thank for this priceless moment ❤

  • Okita: Can't you read the situation? What on earth did you come here for?
  • Kagura: You're the policeman, right? Do your traffic control (properly)~ Well,(it's your fault that) I can't even take my dog for a walk.
  • Okita: There's no such thing as policeman here. Don't you know that we are no longer...
  • Kagura: If you guys are already disbanded then what's with that get up? Why haven't you taken off your uniform yet? I heard that you seemed to protect Soyo-chan that time. From that nuisance of an idiot...
  • Okita: Hime-sama are surely resenting (me), right? The killer that couldn't protect her elder brother...
  • Kagura: ... Well, she held nothing but resentment (towards you) ... It's your fault that now she couldn't eat neither liver nor hormone (anymore), after all.
  • Okita: ... *listening calmly*
  • Kagura: Moreover, Soyo-hime can't help but getting a whole store ready to your liking, so think about your favorite dish before she invites you, it's what she wanted to say.
  • Okita: ...
  • Kagura: There's no longer Shinsengumi but the fact that you saved one's life won't change, right? The fact that you saved two girls won't change, right?(T/N: one girl is Soyo, another is Kagura. Remember Kagura vs Kamui chapter)
  • Okita: ...
  • Kagura: Don't worry... Though you guys can't wear such uniform anymore,we all know that... you... you guys are still the Shinsengumi. (sub-text: the police) No matter what you guys are going to do from now on, we still know the Shinsengumi (subtext: you guys). So quit lazing around at such a place like this. As soon as getting out of the Gorilla cage, as well as controlling the traffic, do your job quickly~ *beat Okita on the back*
  • Okita: ...Huh? By any chance did I get encouraged just now? Am I thought to be in depression?
  • Kagura: My bad there's no such thing. Quit yapping you stink so just change out of that dust cloth quickly.
  • Okita: Well I've decided. I will never take off this uniform for life. No way I will do as the way you think. Did you just hear me you small fries? I said I won't take off "him" (T/N: I suppose Okita means that he won't forget Kondou's ideals by revenging him against his final wish)

Every now and then, I return to your tumblr and pull up your poem wild dogs and dead horses. I don't know why, i mean, i first read it years ago back when i read and fell in love with all your articles on Cracked. Funny thing is, I haven't read any of your new articles in over a year. Even now as i sit with my laptop on the kitchen table at 4 in the morning with a (yet to be started) English paper due in a few hours, i still pull up the poem.

That’s very nice of you! Thank you for letting me know, it makes my day. That was part of a trilogy if you ever decide you’d rather procrastinate with some other western revenge poems.
