  • also the entire campfire song being abt how much everyone hates their parents and then percy standing up and being like “hi everyone, i love my mom”
  • percy climbing the scaffolding during “good kid” and hanging like he’s going to jump when he sings “all you get are bad grades and a bum rap and a bad rep and a good smack and no friends and no hope and no mom” chris made me cry real tears here oof
  • grover telling percy he’s coming w him on his quest and percy immediately going into Angry Protective Mode and grover jumping in before he can say anything w/ “don’t get mad!”

  • jonathan raviv’s quick change from poseidon to chiron was really quick so he came out as chiron with his shirt unbuttoned in the deepest v saying “I GALLOPED HERE AS FAST AS I COULD” which was ridiculous and yet completely in character
  • percy and luke’s handshake! and luke telling percy what he thinks of the gods and going for the handshake and percy hesitantly doing it w him bc he agrees w/ the way luke feels before realizing that luke’s the lightning thief
  • luke has a dark reprise of “good kid” when he betrays percy and i !!!! SCREAMED!!!!
  • also the creators of this musical, apparently: well we cant have a poison scorpion on stage so how about luke just fuckin stabs percy in the back? hm?
  • the stage was a huge mess of confetti and toilet paper by the end which is truly the only way a percy jackson musical should end
  • please go see this if you have the chance it’s so funny and so good, it’s really an amazing adaption that gets the tone of the book so well and every actor captures their character(s) perfectly, they all clearly know the material and seem like they’re having so much fun onstage, i loved it so much!!!!

Do you guys know what I just realized?

In Viria’s official art, Leo is basically the only one sitting down.

All I can imagine is Leo is being forced to stand for his drawing but he’s having none of that shit.

“hell to the no i aint stressing out these long beautiful legs imma sit down and play with some wires u cant tell me what to do”

I’m laughing so hard. Viria, I love you.

[Sally and Paul are out of town for Sally’s book tour. Percy, having decided to invite the Seven and a few other friends over, is putting away anything likely to get broken. Jason, who arrived early, is helping.]

Jason(Gingerly examining what appears to be a very ugly ceramic blowfish): Is this what I think it is?

Percy(Glancing over over from the dresser): That? Yeah. You can just put it with the others.

Jason(Confused): The…

[Percy points to the closet. Giving Percy a strange look, Jason opens the door to discover shelf upon shelf of blowfish in every shape, size, hue and material imaginable. He takes a half step back]

Percy(Joining him): Kinda creepy, right?

Jason(At a loss for words): …why?

Percy(Taking the blowfish from Jason and adding it to the collection): I dunno, it’s just this weird thing Paul’s students do. Every year, his graduating class gives him a blowfish. You know- Blofis, Blowfish. It’s a tradition.

[Jason nods, but seems unable to look away. Percy stands next to him, surveying the blowfish armada]

Percy: …Honestly, I don’t even think he likes them.

[They are mercifully interrupted by Leo, who scrambles into the room, sparing three seconds of bewilderment on the blowfish closet before deciding he has more pressing matters to worry about]

Leo(Yanking Jason around by the shoulder to face him): Jason. Jason, bro, we kissed. She kissed me. Like ten minutes ago. In Percy parents’ bedroom.

Percy(Smacking Leo with a conveniently placed copy of Jane Eyre): Dude! Don’t make out in my parents’ bedroom, that’s disgusting!

Jason(Letting Percy attack Leo with Jane Eyre a few more times before separating them): I’d kind of figured you’d gotten past that already- all the ladies love Leo, right?

Leo(Eyes wide and fidgeting worse than usual): No, dude, shut up, I’m freaked out. I don’t… I don’t think I’m very good.

Jason: Good at-

Leo(Grabbing Jason by the shoulders again): At kissing! And I mean, Calypso’s done a lot more kissing than me over the years- like, even without the immortality thing. And with heroes. Heroes! Like, the legendary kind, with swords and muscles and social skills. The kind that probably knew how to kiss! I don’t want to suck so bad she dumps me! Girls dig you, I’m asking for advice!

Jason(Who has kissed exactly two girls in his life): Look, as far as I can tell, there’s two basic rules- one, don’t bite anything without permission, and two, the human tongue is like wasabi. It’s very powerful and should be used sparingly.

[Leo begins nodding, then freezes, staring at something beyond Jason’s shoulder. Percy, facing the same direction as Leo, gives a snort of laughter he hastily tries to disguise as a cough]

Jason(Closing his eyes): She’s standing right behind me, isn’t she?

Calypso(Mimicking Jason): “The human tongue is like wasabi!”

Jason: I don’t sound like that.

Percy: You kinda do.

Calypso(Sidling around to stand next to Leo, who is trying to sink into the floor): Actually, I think Leo’s tongue is like sunscreen. It’s good for your health and should be applied liberally.

Jason: I REALLY didn’t need to hear that. I really wish I could stop IMAGINING that.

Percy(Gravely): The idea itself is so offensive, that it’s actually illegal to say the words ‘Leo Valdez’s tongue’ on TV. 

Jason(Sagely): The penalty for violating that law is ten years in prison.

Percy: Or one Leo Valdez tongue bath.

Leo(Face in his hands): I hate you.

Jason: Everyone chooses prison.

Leo(Glaring through his fingers): I HATE YOU.

[Rolling her eyes, Calypso gently pries Leo’s hands from his face and kisses him. After a moment of hesitation Leo kisses back, putting his hands on her hips]

Percy: Oh gods. Oh, gods, I’m blind! I’m blind!

Jason(Severely): Please stop. You’re upsetting the blowfish.

hufflepuff!percy because @percyyoulittleshit put this idea in my head uvu. the next match is hufflepuff vs. gryffindor and annabeth is torn between who to cheer for tbh

ok so i take these classes w a bunch of showoffs who do a lot ofparkour/tricking/gymnastics/acrobatic-style bullshit and i genuinely believe Percy would do half this shit as well as other demigods so here is this fuckery

  • Percy has a natural affinity for it
  • by affinity i mean the water god in him makes things easier to jump/scale like it would be in a pool bc buoyancy science shit
  • so he can get pretty good air without a spring floor
  • but CHB has one bc u cant tell me Chiron would say it is useless (it isn’t. that shit makes u strong)
  • Percy could do a standing front tuck since he was 13
  • boy did arials and arabians like it was NOTHING
  • he goes back to high school n in the middle of gym some dipshit is goin hard and Percy just does a fuckin webster and chucks the dodgeball at him, pointing as him as his team lOSES THEIR SHIT
  • nobody knew Percy could do that
  • panties dropped, dicks were hard
  • boy does layout variations of stuff
  • his senior prank is getting a bunch of gymnast friends and just doing shit down the hallways
  • roundoff back handsprings
  • full outs
  • Percy one time does a back tuck off of lockers because a guy said he wouldn’t and Percy doesn’t play with that shit
  • nobody saw Annabeth do any until she busts into English doing back handsprings around the room because fuck you this is Annabeth Chase

feel free to add

I have a theory for the end of MCGA

Basically, a big thing about Norse mythology is that it has an end, which is unusual for mythology. Even more unusual is the fact that at this end, just about everyone dies (Even the gods. Especially the gods). Just about everybody kills each other. That’s it! Pretty abysmal if you think about it.

But after all this, the last few surviving meet back up, everything settles down, and these one or two gods come back from the dead and then everybody left over goes on their way to this new cool land that rose from the sea and has self-growing crops and stuff and it’s pretty chill.

This is important to note for the theory. MCGA is pretty good about following norse mythos. And, since in the last book, Ragnarok essentially began, we can expect the next book to be the “big final battle” and this to be the main myth the book surrounds. (First book: Followed the myth of the Fenrir’s binding. Second book: Followed the myth of Thor’s hammer being stolen. Third book: Ragnarok.)

Now: In the next book, a big thing is the fact that Percy will appear towards the beginning. Knowing the whole “the earth sinks into the sea” part of Ragnarok, this makes sense. It’d be good to have Percy on stand-by when there’s a lot of water. Also important: on the English cover, Magnus is shown wearing a bright orange t-shirt. As i’m sure you all are PJO readers, you’ll know there’s a very strong association of bright orange t-shirts with a certain location.

So, this leads to the final bit of the theory:

Percy and Annabeth on stand-by + Magnus in orange t-shirt on cover + Survivors of Ragnarok traveling to a new haven =

Magnus and the other survivors of Ragnarok will live at Camp Half-blood post-final battle.

  • Chiron: The Hunters win! For the fifty-sixth time in a row.
  • Thalia: Perseus Jackson! *storms toward him, flickering blue sparks* What in the name of the gods were you THINKING?
  • Percy: *balls fists* I got the flag, Thalia! *shakes flag in her face* I saw a chance and I took it!
  • Thalia: *yelling* I WAS AT THEIR BASE! But the flag was gone. If you hadn't butted in, we would've won.
  • Percy: You had too many on you!
  • Thalia: Oh, so it's my fault?
  • Percy: I didn't say that.
  • Thalia: Argh! *pushes him, sending a shock through him that blows him ten feet backwards into the river*
  • Thalia: *pales* Sorry! I didn't mean to—
  • Percy: *ears roaring, angrily erupts a wave from river and blasts Thalia in the face, dousing her head to toe*
  • Percy: Yeah. *growls* I didn't mean to, either.
  • Chiron: Enough!
  • Thalia: *holds out spear* You want some, Seaweed Brain?
  • Percy: Bring it on, Pinecone Face!
  • Percy: *raises riptide*
  • Thalia: *yells, a blast of lightning comes down from the sky, hits her spear like a lightning rod, and slams into Percy's chest*
  • Percy: *is thrown back, clothes burning*
  • Chiron: Thalia! That is enough!
  • Percy: *stands up and wills entire creek to rise, swirling in a massive icy funnel cloud*
  • Chiron: Percy!
  • Percy: *prepares to hurl wave at Thalia, but sees the oracle emerging from the woods and the wave crashes back into the creek*

[during Percy’s stay in the Hermes cabin, everyone is crowded onto large mattresses]

Connor: All right, Percy, since you’re new here, I’ll show you the ropes. That corner of the bed is for eating, and this right here is the exercise area.

Travis: This is where I thrash. [He flops about like a fish.] Mmh. Mmh! Mmnh! Unnnnnnnh!

Percy: Yeah, I’ll stand, thank you very much.

anonymous asked:

more slytherin!percy headcannons?

Yes

also my head canons change so much like Sally is sometimes a wizard sometimes she’s not it just depends but this is the basic story currently in my head.

  • Percy is a half-blood.
  • Sally is a muggle that always had a knack for seeing odd things and her gut feelings are scary accurate.
  • Poseidon is a pureblood, nomadic wizard that descended from a long and powerful line of greek witches and wizards. (The backstory is fairly the same - Poseidon and Sally meet at a beach, spend a summer together, and Poseidon has to leave)
  • Because Sally is broke and is trying to support her son she still marries Gabe. It’s not until Percy goes off to Hogwarts that she finally feels mentally and financially comfortable enough divorce him and start on her own career.
  • No when Percy is a kid though his accidental magic is off that charts. He’s around seven by the time Sally tells him of his heritage - in a burst of anger towards Gabe, Percy had hurled an entire bookcase across the room with accidental magic.
  • Poseidon was slytherin.
  • Because Sally knows most of her knowledge of the Wizarding World through Poseidon, she simply tells Percy to be himself and to not let anyone take advantage of him.
  • It’s the Hogwarts express that the Trio™ is born.
  • Percy sees a kid getting picked on for being disabled and promptly punches the bully in the face. Then as they’re being chased down the corridor, a blonde girl hides them out in her compartment.
  • Percy thinks Annabeth Chase is a little snotty at first because she just has that judgmental, patronizing stare down to a T and you can tell from her clothes that she comes from money and who is she to tell him that he’s a bit “rash” but obviously she can’t be too bad after calling that guy Octavian a Prat and letting them hide in her compartment.
  • Annabeth thinks Perseus Jackson is a bit of a troublemaker at first because he was barely in the train for two seconds before he broken someone else’s nose and his entire appearance is way to unruly and even the way he smiles looks like he’s up to no good but hey if she’s being honest she totally would’ve broken Octavian’s nose too if she had the chance so the guy can’t be that bad.
  • But we all know they’re gonna love each other in like three/four years.
  • Grover’s just really happy to have friends.
  • Annabeth Chase is a pureblood. She ends up being sorted into Ravenclaw
  • Grover Underwood is muggleborn and walks with a limp. He ends up in Hufflepuff.
  • As we know Percy ends up in Slytherin but his sorting is one of the longest in Hogwarts history because the hat feels he fits so well in most of the houses.
  • I also really like this because the trio contains a pureblood, halfblood, and muggleborn and each are in different houses.
  • But Percy is so disappointed with being a Slytherin at first?? He knows very little about Hogwarts and magic in general, and very quickly finds out that Slytherin is seen as the “evil” house. Then even worse his own House just helps perpetuates the distinction because half of them are obsessed with blood purity and remind him of the rich snotty kids that he went to his school with in the muggle world and god even Octavian is a Slytherin????
  • But then he meets two other of his housemates - Connor Stoll and Zoe Nightshade. Honestly they are just so weird because Zoe seems like she doesn’t like anyone even if she does and Connor seems like he likes everyone even when he doesn’t and somehow the three of them become friends.
  • It’s the two of them that play a huge role in his development and become his closest friends beside Grover and Annabeth.
  • With the guidance of his friends and mother Percy recognizes that there are bad people in every house and that he can’t let himself be stereotyped as “evil” just for being sorted into Slytherin nor can he stereotype all of his housemates as such. On the other hand he also refuses to let anyone in his own house talk down to muggleborns or bully anyone.
  • Basically canon Percy standing up to bullies is canon.
  • Also Connor constantly saying “You think Slytherins are bad? Wait till you’ve seen the bloody Gryffindors, that bloke Travis is a real prick.”
  • But the very first “real” talk Percy has with Annabeth is her telling him she doesn’t give a flying flip if they’re in different houses because they’re friends.
  • And god, the teasing House Rivalry is so intense between the Trio because “Oh you really think Ravenclaw is going to beat Slytherin for the House Cup? Sure. Whatever you say WiseGirl.”
  • But the percabeth friendship is so great because you know all of those posts that say to fear the ravenclaw/slytherin duo?? That’s Percy and Annabeth to a T.
  • Connor shows Percy all of the secret passages throughout the castle.
  • Both Percy and Annabeth play for their respective Quidditch Teams. He’s a Beater. Annabeth is a Chaser.
  • The matches between Gryffindor and Slytherin are already so intense but there’s this unspoken rivalry between him and the Gryffindor Beater Clarisse la Rue and they spend a good portion of their energy just trying to knock each other off their brooms.
  • The matches between Slytherin and Ravenclaw are pretty entertaining too considering Percy and Annabeth just competitively flirt half the time.

I just really love slytherin Percy
