I’m reading The Lost Hero again and… Wow. There are so many things I had forgotten!
Well, this is how I see Piper in my mind now. Smol kiddo 100% ready for a fight.
She’s not the kind of girl I would befriend in school though. In Brazilian portuguese we have a word that kinda fits her: “Barraqueira”.
At the beggining of the book she wants to fight every single girl who looks at her and especially every girl who looks at Jason, and this is really annoying. She basically wants to punch everybody to “show the world she’s strong". Of course I understand that, suffering from bullying all her life, it’s natural that she’s always in a defensive mood, but c’mon girl, just calm down. Pls.
And to make it better, she kinda demonizes everything girly. I don’t blame her, the damn Riordan wrote her this way, but WOW it pisses me off. It starts with her judging Drew by her looks. “Too pretty, makeup, fashion style. Hum, must be evil.” And this judgement is then applied to almost every female character who does not follow the line “100% good”.
And oh well, Aphrodite and her children. Do you guys remember the Hipnos Cabin? These guys sleep all the time, and do not seem to be good at battles. But still, whose fame is it to be useless in fights? Aphrodite’s children.
“Ah but Hipnos’ children can make the enemy sleepy, blah blah blah”
Aphrodite was born from Uranos. She’s probably as powerful as Zeus, or even more, because as we all know, even the gods can’t escape from love.
Love is a powerful thing. Love can be BRUTAL. So that story of Aphrodite’s children being always portrayed as supermodels who only care about their looks and boyfriends and can’t fight a bug is just RIDICULOUS
Sorry about it, is just something that really bothers me.

Darling Pan AU : The girl falling and lost forever in her adventure stories finally finds her feet as the Lost Girl of Neverland
He told her not to be afraid. That being lost was just a part of the game. The twisted, sadistic, utterly tempting game that he had been playing with her since his shadow had come to her window. He had told her that forgetting her home, forgetting her family, and forgetting her life was the best thing she could do for herself. And when he placed a sword in her hand, wrapping his battle ridden hands around her delicate innocent ones, it was easy to forget. But it was when she could feel his presence; feel his lurking form circling her; when he played his part well of being the master of shadows, it was utterly impossible for her to remember home.
