Hey guys! Idk how to describe this one shot. It’s not really complete one, just an insight, a beginning. I honestly have a hard time thinking of how to continue it but I couldn’t let the idea pass by as well. To other writers, you’re more than welcome to use my story!

You heard screams from above the ocean and your curiosity got the better of you, like any other 9 year old mermaid or merman out there. You quietly swam away from your mother and went up to the surface of the water. You popped your head out and saw a land man struggling to stay up. You knew to never interact with them, by the rules of your father, but you were always the type to not follow his rules.
I know there’s a decent community of reptile hobbyists on this site, but what about fish?
I just had my pleco die, who I’ve had for like 10 years, and now I need a new algae eater but I’m wondering if it’s ethical to get another pleco? Mine had a really long life but only ever got 8" long, which I know is stunted growth for these magnificent fish.
Anyway, I’m just looking for somewhere I can get help and advice….
I just…I feel like I’m never gonna have it…the whole package, you know? That person, that couple life, and I swear, I hate admitting it because I fancy myself Wonder Woman, but…I really want it.. the whole package.
“The Chosen One” aspect is really interesting in the pjo series.
Like we all know that Percy’s going to be the one of the prophecy, there’s absolutely no doubt about it. Already ignoring the fact that he’s the narrator, there are literally huge cosmic, higher power signs pointing to Percy throughout the series, enforcing the idea that Percy is the hero of the great prophecy and his role to either save or destroy the world was predetermined years before he was even born.
But in the Titan’s Curse, two extremely interesting things occur: First, three other children of the Big Three become involved into the storyline. And as they are all under sixteen, that definitely throws the off the certainty of Percy being the hero of the Prophecy. Second, and more importantly, after Bianca’s death and Thalia’s newly immortal state, Percy makes the decision to be the hero of the prophecy. Percy chooses to be the Chosen One.
That in itself creates such an interesting and conflicting concept: Percy is obviously the One of the prophecy, but his decision implies that he had a choice in the matter. Perhaps, if he had never come to that resolution, that is one of the many ways he would have razed Olympus.
Or maybe, in order to be the chosen one, you have to choose yourself. It’s interesting to think what would have happened if Thalia never accepted immortality or if Bianca hadn’t died.
Also, I’m not sure how much this has been discussed but that is such a defining characteristic of Percy. (Whether or not the decision changed the outcome) Percy chose to be the hero of the prophecy. He deliberately accepted that as his role. And he did it all to spare someone else’s pain - so Nico di Angelo would not have to suffer more than he already did.
P: (…) I also want to channel my creative energies into something, I’ve been writing down loads of ideas and I’ve got a load of ideas for some kind of creative project, I just don’t know how to make it yet. That’s really vague ‘cause I don’t even really know what it is yet, but there is something brewing in my brain which i’d like to do.
to be honest, i don’t really give too much thought to how the industry or the public perceives my career. at the end of the day, i’d like to be remembered as a nice guy; that’s what’s most important to me. i find the work fulfilling. but as far as what people think of me, i think kindness is the only thing that really matters and the only thing that has any real staying power. celebrity can be like vapor
it dissipates very quickly. who you are is what has staying power.
