320. Some demigods have a smartphone and social media. They especially like posting pictures of their significant other on Instagram. Percy likes posting pics of Annabeth and Will posts cute slips of Nico, who usually gets really angry about it.
Percy is the most powerful demigod I’ve ever met. No offense to you guys, but it’s true. If anybody can survive, he will, especially if he’s got Annabeth at his side. They’re going to find a way through Tartarus.
Nico di Angelo, after Percabeth’s fall into Tartarus
One day, when Percy and Annabeth are with Will and Nico just shows up and starts to tell Will about something really exciting and he’s a bit jumpy and he’s smiling and pretty loud. will is all smiles but then he notices that Percy has tears in his eyes and they ask him what’s wrong but
Percy just turns to Annabeth and says
“People of color, Women, Muslims, LGBTQ+ or any oppressed group in America, we stand and fight together, because we are #StrongerTogether.”
(I’m so devastated by what is happening right now. I don’t know how else I could help or contribute but..)
Some characters from Rick Riordan’s book series that represent minorities:
Reyna Avila Ramirez-Arellano - Latina Frank Zhang - Chinese Canadian Hazel Levesque - African American Samirah Al Abbas - Arab American muslim Leo Valdez - Latino Alex Fierro - Transgender and Genderfluid Piper McLean - Native American/Cherokee Nico di Angelo and Will Solace - Gay
Don’t attack me for the ones I had left out.. If I had the time I could’ve added more characters…
I haven’t read a series in quite a long time where I had such a clear, distinct vision of what each and every character looked like. After finishing through PJO earlier this year, I slowly started sketching out everyone I could and editing along the way in order to get them to look as closely as possible to what was in my head. I wasn’t able to cover every single character that’s mentioned, but I’m still really proud of this set! I can’t wait to use it as a reference for more PJO art going forward.
Since re-reading the Percy Jackson series has kind-of brought me out of my funk, I’m doodling some percabeth and a hot little Percy for fun! Oh man how I missed these two, and these books! I love how colourfully humorous the books are, and Percy cheers me up so much xD
