percy jackson and the sea monster

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?

Look what you made me do! HOPE YOU’RE HAPPY NOW!

Annabeth’s shroud was so beautiful - gray silk with embroidered owls - I told her it seemed a shame not to bury her in it. She punched me and told me to shut up.
