Book photo challenge: Summer read

 A Robot in the Garden is a great summer read featuring a man backpacking across the world, a sentient robot, some endearing moments, and many heart warming realizations.

But I did meet her; that’s the thing that makes my current life strange. I fell in love with her when we were together, then fell deeper in love with her in the years we were apart. Our story had three parts: a beginning, a middle, and an end. And although this is the way all stories unfold, I still can’t believe that ours didn’t go on forever.

The Sweetest Percabeth Moments

In anticipation of the exciting Percabeth moments in House of Hades, we’d like to remember our favorite moments in the first two series:

That time when Percy walked to a pretty blond girl who says, “He’s the one. He must be.” It was at this very moment that Percy noticed Annabeth.

That first time when Annabeth called him his signature nickname?

And then there’s this moment that launched Percabeth as we know it.

  “Are you kidding?” she looked at me as if I’d just dropped from the moon. Her cheeks were bright red.
   “What’s the problem now?” I demanded.
   “Me, go with you to the…the ‘Thrill Ride of Love’? how embarrassing is that? What if somebody saw me?”
   “Who’s going to see you?” But my face was burning now, too. Leave it to a girl to make everything complicated. “Fine,” I told her. “I’ll do it myself.” But when I started down the side of the pool, she followed me, muttering about how boys always messed things up.

And there’s more - a lot more! Moments that created thousands of fans. So, it is not surprising that you’d find awesome fan artworks like these ones below:

Romione Remains the One True Pairing

Every now and then, J.K. Rowling would make waves by making shocking revelations.  Dumbledore has been revealed as gay.  She apologized for killing off one of the Weasley twins. She also revealed that she’s sorry that she had Romione, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, married off in the end. In hindsight, she believes that she should have paired Hermione with Potter himself.

You can just imagine the reaction from Romione fans.

We, however, feel that the romantic relationships of the characters were never really central to the story.  If they never existed, the story wouldn’t change. Rowling’s revelations do not matter because the pairings are over and done with. Romione will remain the one true pairing.
