never forget that in the Sea of Monsters, Annabeth casually sends Percy a picture of her on vacation and he Prints It Out And Puts It In His Notebook For School To Take Out And Look At Occasionally In Class. Just never forget.
That Perseus always won. That’s why my mom had named me after him, even though he was a son of Zeus and I was a son of Poseidon. The original Perseus was one of the only heroes in the Greek myths who got a happy ending. The others died—betrayed, mauled, mutilated, poisoned, or cursed by the gods. My mom hoped I would inherit Perseus’s luck. Judging by how my life was going so far, I wasn’t real optimistic.
Can we just talk about when Percy was on Circe's island in sea of monsters she lead him into having a poor body image. Imagine how scaring it would be like the constant whisper in your ear that you will never be good enough. People look at him turning into a guinea pig as a joke, but see it as mentally traumatizing. You feel?
