percy jackson & the lighting thief

ASDFGHJKL JUST FINISHED WATCHING THE MUSICAL AND I THINK IM DEAD. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING AND THEY MADE SO MANY BOOK REFERENCES AND ANNABETH AND OMGOMGOMG. THEY HAD SUCH A CUTE PERCABETH MOMENT IN “MY GRAND PLAN” IT WAS SO CUTE AND BEAUTIFUL. I CANT EVEN

ALSO ED SHEERAN HAS “CASTLE ON THE HILL” AND GROVER UNDERWOOD HAD “THE TREE ON THE HILL” AND IT WAS BEAUTIFUL.

Honestly I read this book when I was the same age as Percy in the Lighting Thief and it means so much to me and I’m juST SO HAPPY

How I imagine Percy Trying to Cheer up Annabeth

Percy: “Come on Annabeth I made your favorite, and with my own special twist! You wont know what it is until you come out of your room and try it.”       

Annabeth: “Let me guess, the secret twist is that it’s blue?”                         

Percy: “…no.”                                                                                                         

So my mom and I went up to New York last weekend to see The Lightning Thief Musical (amazing by the way). Being the theatre-loving-techie that I am, I decided I really wanted to meet their stage manager. So afterwards, while everyone was waiting for the actors to come outside we hung out in the very small lobby. The director was out there and wasn’t really having any of this “random kid asking him questions” thing so he was a bit dismissive, which I totally get because directing, and especially directing a sold out off-broadway show, is very stressful. However, the conductor of their small orchestra was out there too and when he heard my request he was very eager to go get the SM. She was so nice and so happy to have someone genuinely interested in her job! She even helped me find a big theatre near my city that does high school internships to get me some extra experience before college. So I guess my point here, other than the fact that Leigh'Ann Andrews is amazing, is that if you’re a crew member or high school/college SM or anyone interested in what goes on “behind the scenes” of a play, if you have the opportunity or might even have a little chance, talk to the stage manager or sound/light designer. They rarely get recognition from fans of the show and they just deserve so much.

Good morning everybody! Today I’m doing the #firstbookinaseries tag tagged by @jozi_bibliophile and @whatsername_reads, as well as the #firstinaseries tag tagged by @paperfury and @mikysbooks. Thank you so much for the tags! Here’s a pretty rainbow stack of first books in a series, most of which I’ve read and loved, except for The Hidden Oracle and The Bone Season, which are on my mountainous TBR pile. 😊❤️📚

Daily reminder

Sally Jackson hated Gabe Ugliano because he was a piece of shit.

Sally Jackson only put up with Gabe because he was such a repugnant person that it could mask the presence of a child of the big three.

Sally Jackson put up with Gabe so that her son could have a human life for as long as possible and he would be at less of a risk while he was growing up and unable to properly defend himself on any feasible level.

when the opportunity was given to her, Sally Jackson murdered and sold Gabe’s corpse as a statue for big bank to pay her tuition for night school and literally did not give a fuck. And neither did anyone else.

Remind me again—why do you hate me so much?”
“I don’t hate you.”
“Could’ve fooled me.”
She folded her cap of invisibility. “Look … we’re just not supposed to get along, okay? Our parents are rivals.”
“Why?”
She sighed. “How many reasons do you want? One time my mom caught Poseidon with his girlfriend in Athena’s temple, which is hugely disrespectful. Another time, Athena and Poseidon competed to be the patron god for the city of Athens. Your dad created some stupid saltwater spring for his gift. My mom created the olive tree. The people saw that her gift was better, so they named the city after her.”
“They must really like olives.”
“Oh, forget it.”
“Now, if she’d invented pizza—that I could understand.
—  Rick Riordan, The Lightning Thief

Everyone is always mentioning the timeline errors in PJO, like how Will isn’t Nico’s age or whatever
