Part 1 | Part 2

  • When Annabeth got up, she could smell burnt food coming from the kitchen. She jumped out of bed and rushed to the kitchen where Percy was trying to cook.
  • “What is going on?” Annabeth could see black smoke and Percy covered in egg and flour? She wasn’t sure but she didn’t want to know. 
  • “Um, I’m making food. Trying to make blue food but I didn’t know that cooking was hard.” He said dumping burnt eggs into the trash. 
  • Annabeth took a deep breath and looked at him. “I’ll help you make some breakfast.”
  • “But you made food last night. I wanted to make you food this morning.” He told her. “I know how to cook, I think.”
  • Annabeth smiled and went to his side. “Alright, we are going to go simple, scrambled eggs and toast.”
  • Annabeth showed him how to cook and Percy watched with meaning full eyes. He copied Annabeth and smiled when they finished making breakfast. 
  • He set everything at the table and the two of them sat down to have breakfast. 
  • Percy looked at his food and then at Annabeth. “How do you make food blue?”
  • “Oh, well there’s blue food dye.” She told him. “It’ll change the color of the food to blue.”
  • He nodded as he ate his food. “This food needs to be blue. It’ll taste better.”
  • Annabeth smiled bit. “Alright.”


  • Percy was walking around the town with Annabeth. She had to do some shopping to stock up for the week. And since Percy was kind of stuck here, he tagged along, trying to understand the ways of Nock. 
  • It was pretty simple, people just went through their day, greeting each other and giving Percy stares. He guessed that that not a lot of people moved to Nock.
  • “People are staring at me.” Percy whispered to Annabeth. 
  • “That’s because you’re new. Not a lot of people move to Nock. So when there’s someone new, people know right away.” She told him. 
  • He nodded and walked with her, getting use to the shops that he had to explore. One that caught his eye was the fortune teller and psychic shop. Percy wasn’t sure if he believed in that stuff but maybe they could help with figuring out where he came from or who he is.
  • “Percy, are you okay?” Annabeth was a few feet in front of him. She only stopped when she noticed Percy wasn’t keeping up.
  • “A psychic?” He asked. “Like they could tell me about my past?”
  • “Um, possibly. No one really goes there except people who recently loss someone and want closure.” She replied. “Besides that, no one really goes near that place.”
  • “Can we go there? Maybe they can help me.” Percy headed towards the shop. 
  • Annabeth followed him, a bit curious if someone could actually help him remember who he was. 
  • They got to the door and Percy tried to pull it open. The door shook  and he tried to push and the door didn’t budge.
  • “Percy, they’re closed.” Annabeth pointed to the sign in the window. “It’s some type of holiday for them.”
  • “Oh…” The excitement in him disappeared. He really wanted to know more about himself.
  • Annabeth put a hand on his shoulder. “We can come back tomorrow and see them. But right now, we need to get food for dinner.”
  • Percy took a deep breath. He can wait one more day. He’s been here for three days so far and his gut was telling him to leave.

Me when a character gets hurt and their SO gets overprotective:

What about a soul mate au where you hear background music for the most important parts of your life, and when you meet your soul mate it’s dramatic and romantic music

But on the other hand…..

“Guys we really shouldn’t go in there, can’t you hear the creepy ass music? I don’t want to get killed.”

“Fuck I’m pretty sure this is fighting music I can’t fight you I have exams to study for.”

“Oh no poor kitty why are you out here all on your-NO STOP THE SAD MUSIC THIS CAT ISN’T GONNA DIE JUST WATCH ME”

Reasons I desperately want the Voltron/Korra people to make a Percy Jackson cartoon:
  • They wouldn’t have to do anything but animate it because the dialogue is already perfectly written
  • You can slap an educational label on it for the parents, but it’s way too entertaining for kids to care
  • There’s more than enough material for 5+ seasons, and no end in sight
  • There’s a huge built in fanbase 
  • Animation means no terrible live action effects
  • IMAGINE THE MERCHANDISING OH MY GOSH like just imagine the Argo II Lego set!! and CHB shirts at Hot Topic and Festus on everything
  • They clearly know how to capture/choreograph water-based fight sequences (Also imagine Jason, Leo, and Hazel air/fire/earth bending)
  • As far as I know, Fox still holds the adaptation rights. Meaning, they could probably contract the animation studio to make the show and then air it one of their networks 
  • Seeing Rick go from, “Movie? What movie?” to “Lol yeah, I wrote that.”
  • Representation. Like a cartoon made with kids with ADHD and dyslexia in mind? Yes please. Main characters of all different races/backgrounds? Gotchu. Gays? Doesn’t get gayer than Greek mythology
  • People loudly and proudly supporting team Greek or team Roman 
  • Also people sporting their Godly parent like a Hogwarts house
  • The very first Percabeth kiss breaking the internet. 
  • Nico Di Angelo breaking the internet. 
  • Characters dying onscreen and it being traumatizing but necessary
  • Getting to see whats going on at both camps simultaneously and filling in some of the gaps
  • Kids getting to grow up with Percy in a completely new way
  • <p> <b>Person B:</b> *is laying on the couch and reading*<p/><b>Person A:</b> *peeks over the couch arm rest* Hey B? You know I adore you. You're my life, my light, my reason to breath. Everything you do is amazing and I'll be by your side no matter what because I love you.<p/><b>Person B:</b> *without looking up* What do you need?<p/><b>Person A:</b> There's a really big spider in our bedroom. Please kill it.<p/><b>Person B:</b> ............ you're adorable......<p/></p>

I love the diversity of religion in Rick Riordan’s books because even though they are literally living proof that the greek/norse/roman/egyptian gods exist, everyone is still kind of just like ‘yeah I know but I’m still muslim’ etc. and its just totally accepted. People just let people believe what they want to believe. Its chill. 

And at the same time, the Gods don’t even cross out the other possibilities. People in the underworld see what they believe, which is really interesting. In the latest book (The Hidden Oracle) Apollo offhandedly mentions how other religions and even science still function regardless. It basically means that whatever you believe, it is completely valid, no matter what. And I think that is an important message to take from his books.
