What do you think of Percy calling Annabeth the most powerful demigod of their generation? Do you think it's true or would you choose someone else?
I feel like it’s completely and one hundred percent extremely accurate that Percy considers Annabeth the most powerful demigod of their generation. The fact that they both consider each other the most powerful demigod of their generation is literally so amazing.
Would your otp ever???
And his analysis of Annabeth is exactly right. - She doesn’t have flashy powers or anything of the sort but she is deadly smart and super quick on her feet. “Doesn’t matter whether she’s on land, in water, in the air, or in Tartarus.” That’s what is so amazing about Annabeth because she doesn’t need powers to be powerful.
However, while Percy thinks very very highly of Annabeth he also thinks very very little of himself. He rightly considers Annabeth intelligent and resourceful but doesn’t consider himself very intelligent or resourceful at all despite how literally everyone else knows he is. For example - Percy obviously is his strongest in and around water but he’s not not strong when he isn’t. He’s the best swordsman the Camp has seen in years?? Even in a flipping volcano he was just like, “alright, time to release my powers and cause an earthquake, ttyl”
I’m not shocked at all the Percy thinks she’s the most powerful demigod. For one, he thinks she’s the best thing since sliced bread and two - he would probably never consider himself the most powerful, Annabeth or no Annabeth.
Because Percy Jackson, as reinforced by the series time and time again, is without a doubt in my mind the most powerful demigod of their generation. He just doesn’t see himself that way.
