Listen guys but we don’t focus on the friendship between Annabeth and Grover enough? Like other than Luke and Thalia, Grover is Annabeth’s oldest friend in the demigod world. They know each other so well.
After Thalia becomes a tree, there’s a time when Luke becomes really distant and focused on training, shutting everything else out. Grover’s the only one Annabeth can talk to
Annabeth is the only one who’s always believed that Grover can be a searcher, since the beginning Like when the Council of Cloven Elders try and revoke his searcher’s license, she wants to throttle them, and she has to be stopped from doing so
Whenever Annabeth’s really, really upset about Luke during the titan war, it’s not Percy she goes to. It’s a complicated subject between them, but Grover understands, because who else would?
Grover being the number one Percabeth shipper since the beginning, like I know Piper being a huge Percabeth shipper is funny and all, but let’s be real Grover’s the biggest
Annabeth going to Grover for advice when she first realised she had a crush on Percy because who else would she turn to?
When Percy and Annabeth start going out, Grover has separate talks with both of them making sure they don’t plan on hurting the other (even though he really knows he doesn’t need to, but he’s been waiting to do this for years)
Annabeth makes a super big effort to be friends with Juniper because she can tell he’s super important to Grover
Grover dragging Annabeth to wildlife conservation marches, and Annabeth getting super into it and creating big signs
Annabeth and Grover having inside jokes from the good memories of their time on the run, referencing it
Percy always rolling his eyes when they do so because why does he love these dorks?
When Percy and Annabeth sleep together for the first time, Grover totally realises and man, it’s mortifying for everyone involved
Whenever someone makes fun of Grover for being the Lord of the Wild because ‘he’s just a weak, runty, satyr loser!’ Annabeth goes mad
Percy usually stops her from getting into fights but this time he’s helping her
Imagine when Grover’s the best man at Percy and Annabeth’s wedding, he not only tells a bunch of stories about Percy but also about Annabeth, because he has loads from when they were younger
Grover being the godfather of Percy and Annabeth’s child
Grover totally crying when he sees the baby for the first time
Annabeth working with Grover on how to make camp half-blood and camp jupiter greener
Annabeth 100% making sure all the buildings she designs when she’s a leading architect are sustainable and environment-friendly, and you bet Grover’s so proud
okay but Beckendorf realizes Percy’s massive crush on Annabeth really quickly b/c it’s so obvious
and Percy’s like NO 36 octaves higher than normal and of course that’s the moment Annabeth’s nearby and asks “No what?” and Percy’s all red and a stuttering mess and Beckendorf just crosses his arms and completely straight faced says “yeah percy, no what?”
Percy makes friends at a college party, but her intentions aren’t what he expects.
“Oh, thanks!” Percy smiles as the girl - Cassie? Casey? He thinks it’s Cassie, but the music was so loud when she introduced herself he couldn’t quite hear - hands him a fresh cup. “Just Coke, right?”
“Yeah,” she says, matching his smile with her own. “Though I still don’t get why you’re not drinking.”
He tries to subtly sniff the drink before taking a sip, just to be sure. It smells okay. “Not a fan,” he says by way of explanation, taking a small sip.
Cassie tags a swig from her own cup, gagging slightly as the vodka hits her throat. “Yeah,” she coughs, “I can - ah, I can understand that.”
He laughs, and she laughs too, and when Percy settles back against the wall she comes and stands next to him.
She nods out at the crowd and says, “So, what do you think of the party?”
“It’s pretty fun,” he says, which is mostly true. He’d prefer to be back in his dorm, snuggled up in bed with Netflix on in the background and Annabeth curled up beside him. But, as far as college parties go, he thinks this one is all right. The music isn’t terrible, at least. “Although, to be honest, I don’t have that much experience with parties so I’m probably not the best judge.”
Cassie turns to him with a knowing look. “I thought you were shy, hanging out by yourself over here with that brooding expression.”
“Brooding?” he says, lips quirking up.
“Well, you’re not brooding now. But you totally were before.”
