pjo: the sea of monsters

anonymous asked:

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!

My fatal fall is hubris.“

I blinked. “That brown stuff they spread on veggie sandwiches?”

She rolled her eyes. “No, Seaweed Brain. That’s hummus. Hubris is worse.”

“What could be worse than hummus?

And then they saw me.

“Percy?” Clarisse said. “You’re supposed to be blown up!”

“Good to see you, too. Now hold still while I-”

Percy,“ Annabeth said, “that was so-”

“Generous?” Grover offered.

Insane,” Annabeth corrected. “You’re betting the lives of everybody at camp that Clarisse will get the Fleece safely back by tonight?”

“It’s her quest,” I said. “She deserves a chance.”

“Percy is nice,” Tyson said.

“Percy is too nice,” Annabeth grumbled, but I couldn’t help thinking that maybe, just maybe, she was a little impressed. I’d surprised her, anyway. And that wasn’t easy to do.

“We’ll have to fight a Cyclops. Polyphemus, the worst of cyclops. And there’s only one place his island could be. The Sea of Monsters.”
“Where’s that?”
She stared at me like she thought I was playing dumb. “The Sea of Monsters. The same sea Odysseus sailed through, and Jason, and Aeneas, and all the others.”

okay but in sea of monsters when percy saved annabeth from the sirens and he put them in a little air bubble underwater and she just started sobbing on his shoulder and he was like “now all the fish are going to start rumors about the son of poseidon and daughter of athena” and then in the last olympian when they had the underwater kiss (!!) the fish must’ve like “WE FUCKIN KNEW IT”
