running-irie

Barry: You keep living, loving and running.

Iris: Imma run alright! Imma run my a$$ into that speedforce and dare yo damn momma to get in my way. You hear that Nora, I’m comin for yo a$$. Y'all gon leave me and my man alone and let us be happy and have babies. CISCO let’s move we gon set up a make shift lab in the loft. Get ya vibe up!

Today I feel like running away,
from everyone and everything.
But I know that, even if I succeed,
I don’t have the power
to stand on my own two feet.
So I will stay,
breathing through the day,
hoping that when the night falls,
so will my loneliness.
—  Run away by Iris

I love the gifs of Barry realizing that Iris is alive. He looks around and then sees Iris run to him. Someone said that he doesn't bother speeding away to look for her, because he's that sure if she's alive and well, she'll go to him. And sure enough, she did. He got up on his feet, shook and all. As a crying Iris runs to hug Barry, he tears up as well, because his fiancee (That he thought was dead) made it out alive. I wanted a reunion hug and I got one in this scene.

I love that moment too anon. 

Once again Grant and Candice serving up all the FEELS. 

Though I kinda interpreted that scene a little differently tbh. I think the reason he didn’t speed off was because he was in complete shock that it was real. Seconds ago his entire world ended and everything went dark. Then out of nowhere he’s been given hope.

Then he sees her running towards him. He stumbles to his feet both in disbelief but wanting so badly for her to be real. So he stands there waiting for her to get to him.

Iris runs towards him crying from happiness, from relief, from all the pent up fear from the past few months. But all she cares about in that moment is getting to him.

This hug kills me. They are both so HAPPY. They both thought they lost each other forever. Now against all odds they found themselves back in each other’s arms. And they don’t want to let each other go. 

Lets just say this scene ended me ;______;

Candice, Grant, Todd and Andrew answer Westallen questions
  • Grant: They are just really in love and that love can conquer ANYTHING, even Barry being an idiot. 😍
  • Andrew: Just get ready for us to set up their wedding registry, that's all Imma say 😉
  • Todd: They will always find each other no matter what, it's destiny 😀
  • Candice: IDKKKKK, maybe Iris runs off with Oliver and Barry lives with Cisco forever. I mean, things really aren't looking great right now even though they are in love. Plus, she's dying, so there's that. 😇

I keep looking at this gif because it makes me think of all the hardships these two went through together especially Iris.

  • When Barry was picked on at school a lot when they were younger, Iris was there for him.
  • When he lost his mom and his dad was incarcerated, Iris was there for him.
  • When Joe brought Barry to live with them, Iris was there for him
  • When Barry told people what he saw the night of his mother’s murder and nobody believed him except Iris because, Iris was there for him.
  • When Barry went on about the impossible, Iris was there for him. 
  • When Barry was struck by lightning and rushed to the hospital, Iris was there for him. 
  • When Barry was in a coma for nine months, Iris was there for him.

She’s always been there for him.

It’s so nice to know that the only person Barry wants to come running home to is Iris. That he promises to keep running home to Iris. It’s nice to know that when he thinks about Iris and hears her voice, it will always guide him home (to her). 

Damn. So good!

And now Barry can be there for Iris. Beautiful. 

Westallen and Karamel ships fixed in one cross over musical episode? Kara learning to forgive Mon-El? Kara realizing Mon-El truly loves her and wouldn’t hurt her purposely. Barry realizing he shouldn’t run away from Iris, but RUN HOME to Iris? Barry re-proposing to Iris in SONG? I’m done y'all, like it’s too beautiful

Hello, if you have time and are willing to answer this, could you tell me if you have any Annabeth/Rachel friendship headcannons? And maybe something with Sally/Poseidon too? I love you and your blog! Stay awesome x

Thank you so much!! <3 I’ll do these in two separate posts, so look out for the Sally and Poseidon one.

Annabeth and Rachel:

  • When Percy goes missing, Rachel is the one Annabeth goes to first, because if anyone should have answers it’d be her. Rachel can’t explain what’s happening, though, and the look on Annabeth’s face when she says, “I don’t know where he is,” haunts her dreams for months.
  • Annabeth tells her it’s not her fault that the Oracle’s gone silent, but Rachel is still so angry at herself for a long time over it, because this is supposed to be the thing that makes her special, the one thing that makes her worthy of Camp Half Blood, and now that it’s not working she feels like an intruder.
  • Rachel stays up with Annabeth when she can’t sleep because she’s sick with worry while Piper, Jason and Leo are on their quest and Percy is still nowhere to be found. 
  • They sit in silence for a few nights before Annabeth eventually says, “I’m sorry. For how I treated you when we first met. I was jealous, and I - I’m sorry. It was stupid.”
    Rachel looks at her, eyes wide. “It wasn’t stupid. You had every right to be jealous.”
    Annabeth looks like she’s going to hit her. Rachel braces herself for the punch, but it never comes. Instead, Annabeth laughs. It’s a small, shattered sort of laugh, but it’s a laugh nonetheless. Rachel laughs, too, and even when tears start to fall down Annabeth’s cheeks she doesn’t stop laughing. 
  • “I’m sorry, too,” Rachel says the next morning. She doesn’t know exactly what she’s apologising for, but Annabeth accepts it graciously.
  • They bond over having distant parents.
  • Rachel steals Annabeth’s sketching equipment sometimes and Annabeth always yells at her for it because, “Why did you take my ruler, Rachel? You never use a ruler! You just throw paint at the canvas and hope it sticks!”
  • Annabeth likes to go to Rachel when she needs to talk out an idea, because she’s just annoying enough to push her towards new angles without making her murderously angry. (Most of the time, anyway.)
  • Annabeth gives her painting supplies for her birthday (”So you’ll stop stealing mine.”) and Rachel uses them to paint her a portrait for her birthday. It’s Annabeth laughing, the sun haloing around her golden curls, and when she asks Rachel if that’s how she really sees her, she says, “Do you really have to ask, oh wise one?”
  • After the second war they message each other constantly, sharing mundane information about their days and school and how annoying Percy can be.
  • Rachel likes to send her the most annoying memes.
  • Annabeth likes to retaliate with bad puns. Always, all the time, puns.
  • They have sleepovers that mainly involve watching bad B-grade movies and pigging out on bad food. Percy’s not invited.
  • Rachel is secretly jealous of Annabeth’s hair.
  • Annabeth doodles her name on at least four pairs of Rachel’s pants. 
  • When they’re older they continue their sleepovers but swap out (most of) the junk food for wine instead.
  • Drunk Annabeth might be Rachel’s favourite, but she makes sure not to tell sober Annabeth that.
In Love with You Forever

“So, you’re in love with me, huh?”

Barry looked over at her, the brief confusion instantly fading as he flashed a quick grin at her. The words washed over him in a sea of delight.

“Yeah, I am.” His smile turned smug. “What about it?”

She shook her head and sank into the couch, gazing out the window. “No reason.”

Faster than she could blink, he was beside her, chin perched in his hand as he waited for her to register his presence.

Iris tried to ignore the chills that swept through her whenever the air shifted around her when his lightning brought him closer to her.

“Iris…”

His voice held the lilt of a song that even rolling her eyes couldn’t stifle the smile spreading across her features.

“WHAT, Barry?” She demanded, but she was fighting a losing battle and she knew it. They both knew it.

Barry let his fingers dribble up the length of her arm, stopping at her shoulder, drifting across her collar bone and cradling her own chin in his hand. His silly demeanor faded.

“I’m in love with you,” he said, and Iris melted.

“I’m in love with you, too,” she said softly, her eyes sparkling up at him.

Their shared tender smiles and adoring gazes broke moments later when Barry leaned in and kissed her. He lingered a breath away when their lips parted. He swore he could hear Iris’s heartbeat drumming in his ears.

“Who’d have thought a simple peck on the lips could cause such excitement?” Iris teased, wanting to laugh but not wanting to break the moment.

Barry opened his eyes, pulled back a little more so he could look into her eyes and sank his fingers into her raven hair.

“I would,” he said so quietly she almost didn’t hear him.

Again, she was rendered speechless.

“Being with you.” He shook his head, awed. “That’s more exciting than anything in the world.”

“Barry…” Her voice broke.

“You’re my home, Iris,” he said, the words pouring out of him like rushing water.

Iris pulled him closer, nearly sliding herself onto his lap in the process. She felt his arm wrap around her waist and felt the chills again, the thrill from having him so close, the lightning in his body, the racing heartbeat beating out of his chest, the whisper of a breath on her dark skin as she pressed her forehead to his. The safety and security and strength she felt being in his arms was as fiercely permanent as the unbreakable love between

“You’re MY home,” she said, snuggling close, letting her hand trace the outline of his body.

Barry caught her hand, intertwined their fingers, and brought their clasped hands to his lips so he could kiss them. Iris was close enough to kiss his too, and she did.

“Think you’ll always love me as much as you do right now?” she asked curiously, though her voice was still reverent, still in awe of how much he loved her.

“You’ll always take my breath away, Iris West.”

“West-Allen,” she whispered less than a beat later, and he almost laughed.

“West-Allen,” he conceded and smiled.

Iris turned her hand so her engagement ring pressed up against his lips.

“Your wife,” she said to further her point.

“My wife,” he said, not bothering to remind her they weren’t married YET - as he tended to do.

Iris LOVED the sound of those words on his lips.

“We should elope,” she said on a contented sigh, wanting to be his already, wanting that wedding band on her finger and his last name attached to hers.

But this time Barry DID laugh.

“Joe would never forgive us,” he informed her.

She groaned and then nodded. “I know.”

“Besides, we’ve planned such a beautiful wedding. It’d be a shame to waste it after all the trouble we went through.”

Iris pulled back to great the playful glint in her fiance’s eyes.

“Alright, Barry Allen, you’ve convinced me.”

“It’s only a week, Iris,” he reminded her, letting his hand slide down her arm and settle neatly around her back.

“So long,” she remarked airily. “But I suppose I can manage.”

He shook his head and grinned, then pulled her fully onto his lap and sank into the couch.

“We’ll be in love forever, Iris,” he assured her.

She smiled against his chest.

“Yeah?”

“Yeah.”

She thought about teasing him, seeing how he’d respond when she challenged how he could know her as well as he knew himself.

But she knew there wasn’t a point. It was the same way she knew him.

“You’ll keep saying it anyway though, right? I won’t just be expected to know?”

He pressed a kiss into her hair.

“I’ll tell you every day.” He paused, then summoned his song from the depths it had fallen into. “Every hour, every minute,” he sang.

Iris almost laughed, but she was too busy swooning.

“Still singing that at our reception?”

“During the dance?” He questioned. “You want me to sing to you while we’re dancing?”

Iris raised her head to look at him.

“In front of all of our friends and family,” she informed him.

His facade of worry evaporated into an impossibly overwhelming look of love.

“Let them all know who I’ve always loved and who I’ll love until the end of time? Who I will always, ALWAYS run home to?”

Iris felt her heart flutter in her chest. All she could do was nod as her eyes filled with happy tears.

“Yes,” she whispered, her heart stolen away by the boy she’d always loved.

He brushed his nose with hers.

“Anything you want,” he said and tilted his head for another kiss.

“find me” [Westallen, 3.23]

Dear Iris,

I love you.

Every fiber of my being loves you.  

Speed is a beautiful thing; I have time to write this to you.  I know: it’s dirty play to use my Speed when you don’t know it.  Sorry.

Scratch that.  I’m not sorry.  I’m relieved.

I wish I could bring you to this space of perfect stillness.  Do you know how beautiful stillness is?  I never appreciated it before.  Our lives move so fast; it’s hard to find.  It’s like seeing color for the first time.  It’s a sumptuous meal.  It’s the way I feel when I run.  The world isn’t my oyster, but the world is listening to me, Iris.

It’s listening to you, too.  But there’s a lot of noise out there.  A lot of distractions.

So I want you to do me a favor, Iris West.  (Allen.)

I want you to run.  Run as fast and as far as you can.  Run until your lungs are ready to burst.  Run until your legs won’t stand.  Run like it’s the last thing you’ll ever do.  Run till you laugh.  Run till you cry.

Run, Iris: because it is where you will find stillness.  It is where you will find peace.

It is where I will be.

Listen for me in the stillness.

I’ll be listening to you.

All the love in the world is still not enough, but you have all of mine, Iris.

I love you, honey.

I love you so much.

I would spend every day of the rest of my life with you if I could.

But I have to do this.  I don’t know for how long.  Forever is too long.  Let’s just say for – a while.

Wake up tomorrow.  Wake up the day after that.  Do so without expectation.  Do so with enthusiasm and know that I am listening.  I am here; I am as near as you want me to be.  Run fast, and you’ll hear it.

I love you, I love you, I love you.

I’m coming home.

Someday.

Yours,
Barry West-Allen.

THEORY TIME #27389123103 - Speedster Iris? There’s no way...

This going to be quick as possible because I tend to ramble. In one of the comics Barry built a suit for Iris (as shown below), to protect her from any speedster that wanted to do her harm. The suit gave her the ability to manifest Flash-like powers. Mind you, this was not a forever thing and Iris’ run, no pun intended, as a speedster was very acute. In the new promo, we see Barry’s new suit and it’s very reminiscent to the one that he’s wearing at the time him and Iris are both speedsters – in the comics. The lightning bolts around the suit are in the same place and everything. The only thing that would confirm this being the same suit is the yellow boots that comes along with that suit in the comics BUT we didn’t get a full shot. Now, since I am aware of the comics, I’ve thought why not give her suit but I saw they weren’t going in the directions I planned for it to happen so I dismissed the idea. NOW however, it could be plausible. I PREDICT, that when Barry meets this future Flash self, he gets an idea from him to create that suit for Iris. This prediction I’m totally basing it off the appearance of the suit to be quite honest, but they (the showrunners) could’ve used ANY suit from the comics to highlight that this was a future Barry. Another theory I have is, that there’s a warped ripple effect with what Barry is seeing and that the Barry with the new costume has an Iris still… So, what I mean is, our present Barry goes to see his future self, the one without Iris, while the other one goes back to meet our Barry, since he knows he would go to see himself and tells him that this depressed Barry is one that is being seen because our Barry at that point and time – hasn’t properly acknowledged what is going on and still is at a loss on how to save Iris. So, he only gets to see himself like that because he’s allowing it in a sense – kind of reminiscent to what the Speedforce was trying to teach Barry about focusing and not quitting because there’s a miniscule part of him that is tearing him down.

First Choice

Pairing: Oliver Queen x Reader

Summary: You join up with Team Arrow after Iris and Barry start dating. You start to rebuild your life but Barry unexpectedly shows up and begs for you to come back. Will you go with him or stay?

Six months.

It’s been six months since you joined up with Team Arrow. At first, Oliver, of course, had fought you saying that you were better off helping Team Flash but he eventually came around. And after Felicity left them for good, you became the pillar of the team. During the six long months, Oliver and you got closer and closer. Although both of you developed feelings for the other within two months of working together neither wanted to admit it fearing rejection. So, much to the team’s dismay, you both danced around each other’s feelings, all the while shamelessly flirting, sending desperate longing glances while the other wasn’t looking and finding any and every way to lingering touches. A couple of weeks after Ollie’s and your behavior change the team had had enough and took matters into their own hands. All of them tried in their own ways to get Oliver and you to spill your feelings for the other. Ollie refused each time and his was simple

Barry Allen.

He was the sole reason you came to work with Oliver in the first place. Though you never revealed all of the details on what happened between you two Oliver knew that you were in love with Barry for as long as you’ve known him and he was head over heels for Iris. And when Barry and Iris started to date it was more than you could handle. When being in the same room as he became a struggle you decided that your excellent engineering skills, kickass fight style, and medical training could be used to help the neighboring Star City’s vigilante team. Oliver was convinced that those feelings were still there and you could never see him as anything other than a friend.

“(Y/N), how about we go and watch that movie that you’ve been talking our ears off about?” Oliver asks as he walks into the Arrowcave. You turned around and cocked your eyebrow at him, confused. Was Oliver Queen, handsome hunk, ex-billionaire, mayor of Star City asking you out on a date? He can’t be asking you out on a date. He still has feelings for Felicity, I mean the guy wanted to marry her. This was why you kept to yourself about the feelings you have for him. “So…?” Oliver’s voice suddenly brought you back to reality.

“You and me? Like a date?” you asked, heart racing at the possibility.

“Well… I… umm… only if you want it to be, or it can be two fr-,” Oliver stutters.

“It’s a date then. The movie comes out tonight at midnight, how about you pick me up at around 8 and we can grab something to eat right before?” you interrupt him with a sudden surge of confidence.

Oliver’s face cracks into a big grin as he replies, “That sounds perfect.” You give him a quick smile and practically skip through the door to your car.

“Good job (Y/N). You finally got yourself a date, and that too with Oliver Queen. Good thing too, when was the last time you’ve been on a date? Honestly girl, you were turning into your mom, always work, work, work no time for fun. One more week of not having going out and I’m sure you would have started carrying that ridiculous suitcase to work,” you say to yourself while digging around your purse for your keys. “Haha! You didn’t think I would find you did ya?” you exclaimed in triumph talking to your car keys. You were about to open the door when there was a familiar gush of wind and suddenly you were on the rooftop of some skyscraper. “What is it with superheroes and rooftops?” you scream out turning to see the once-love-of-your-life grabbing his sides laughing and gasping for air.  “Okay, okay enough. Why are you here?” you demand with a sudden surge of anger.

“I just wanted to see you,” Barry answered. Although you knew that he could easily deflect your punch, you clocked him in the face anyway, satisfied as a groan escapes the scarlet speedster.

“Six months. Six months, no phone call, no text, not even an email to see how I was. What I was doing? If I was even alive and now you just randomly show up!!!” you screamed, frustration spilling out in the form of tears.

“Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. Please don’t cry. I’m sorry but I came to see you many times and each time you just seemed to be so happy. I didn’t want to ruin that,” Barry coos rushing over to you.

“Barry why would it ruin my happiness?” you choke out, as your tears turn into sobs.

“Well I know the real reason you left Central City, and I didn’t want to bring any pain to you, you seemed to be moving on with your life. From what I heard you’ve even got a date with Oliver,” he explained while wiping your tears away.

“Still doesn’t answer the question of what you are doing here?” you ask after backing away from him and taking a long good look at him. The past six months hasn’t changed him much, his hair was a bit longer than you remember and there was a significant rise of bags under his eyes.

He took a deep breath and said, “The team needs you (Y/N). I need you.” The wind gets knocked out of you at his sudden proclamation. “Please come back to us.”

After several minutes of consideration, you say, “Barry I can’t just leave all this.”

“Why not?” he replies immediately.

“I just can’t. I’ve started to build something here and I can’t just leave all of that in a heartbeat because the team needs me. I can’t rebuild my life at your will,” you respond. “Now please leave me alone Barry.”

“(Y/N),“ he started but you silence him by holding your hand up. “You chose Iris over me Barry, and after I told you my feelings for you too. You ignored me, you left me countless amounts of times and chose to run after Iris even when she didn’t need you, and you treated me like last resort when you needed help. You know what, you were right, you should not have returned to me,” you hiss out venom filled in your tone.

“I’m sorry,” Barry said before taking off leaving you once again to break down alone. Your heart wrenches, and all the wounds that were healing come undone. You sink to the ground next to your car and internally beg him to come back and comfort you, but once again you were sadly disappointed.

You don’t remember when or how but you managed to call the one person you knew would come running to help, he found you and wrapped his strong protective arms around your shoulder. You look into Oliver’s eyes, which were silently begging to let him help you, and you share your heavy broken hearts trouble to him. Throughout the explanation whenever you choked on your own words he squeezed you closer to him, as a sort of silent reassurance that he was there for you. Which he did, Oliver stayed holding you close to him, not saying anything, and he just let you cry out your heart. “I just want to be someone’s first choice. Is that too much to ask for? Am I just not worthy of that? My whole life I have never felt pretty, or special or incredible. That’s why I learned and conquered so many different skills. Even with all of my skills, I’m still not good enough to be someone’s first choice. Someone that a person would fight to be with. I know that love, at first sight, is not really a thing, but I thought that at least someone out there would be crazy enough to find me pretty the first time I met him. I hoped that that same someone would get to know me and think that I was special and incredible. Am I just asking for too much?” you ranted out in frustration not really expecting a response. Suddenly Oliver moved, picked you up bridal style and placed you in the passenger seat of your car.

“Where are we going Ollie?” you ask as he starts the car. “No questions” he responds and smiles at you. He drove to the edge of the city to a place with a breathtaking view, Oliver was quiet the entire ride and you still pondering the fact that you were never the first choice didn’t speak up either. When the car was parked Ollie sat back and sighed. “Why did you bring me here?” you ask and as a response, he got out of the car walked over to your side, opened the door and held his hand out for you. You reluctantly took his hands and let him lead you to the hood of the car when his hands go to your waist as he hoists you up onto the hood of your car a small gasp escapes your mouth, to which he smirks.  

“What do you think about the view (Y/N)?” he asks.

“It’s breathtaking, I’ve always wanted to witness a sunset like this” you reply and turn to him, “still don’t know why you brought me here.”

He walks closer to you and places himself in between your legs and asks, “(Y/N), do you remember what I did when I first saw you?”

“What? Are we playing 20 questions?” you joke to try and lighten the mood but at his stern look sigh and respond with, “You did a double take and then quickly try to cover it up because you were with Felicity.” You smile at the memory of the awkward first meet that Oliver and you had. The meeting ended with Barry having to run you back to your apartment after Ollie managed to spill hot coffee over you.

“I did a double take because I was taken aback by how beautiful you were, and not to be immodest but I have met supermodels, none of them ever made me do a double take. And to be fair at that time I was not with Felicity. The only reason I tried to cover it up was because I thought Barry and you were together,” Oliver explains. “You were so beautiful that I fumbled with nerves when I was talking to you so much that I spilled coffee all over you. No girl has ever made me feel that way before.” The grin you were wearing earlier faltered at his confession. “When you came to work for us, I was overjoyed because I hear so many stories about how good you are at practically everything,” he continued on, “And when I got to finally see you in action I thought you were not only incredible but also unique and special. After I got closer to you I learned that you were all of that and even more. You were compassionate, kind, level-headed, caring and many more qualities. You made me fall in love with you (Y/N). Just by being you, you made me fall deep in love. You were never asking for too much, you deserve so much more than what you ask for because you are so much more than what any guy could ask for. Barry was blind not to see that but I’m not. I love you (Y/N), and I will fight to be with and you will always be my first choice.” Oliver finishes and leans into you only leaving a centimeter of space between your lips, giving you permission to make the final move, which you do in a heartbeat. The kiss started off being sweet and innocent but was quickly turning into something more.

“Wait,” you say gently pushing Ollie off of you, he groaned at the sudden loss of contact and looked expectantly at you. “Two things. One, I love you too, I was so afraid that I was just reading the signs wrong and that you still had feelings for Felicity. Two, why did you bring me here?”

Oliver laughs at the latter portion of your outburst and replies, “Well this was THE place to take a girl when I was a teenager but I never got to take anyone out here because my parents were so worried about security and stuff. Of course, I could have sneaked out and brought a girl out here but for some reason, I saved this place for someone special and I wanted that someone special to be you.”

“Dammit Oliver Queen, you really do know how to work up a girl,” you laugh out as you press a kiss to his lips once again and wrap your legs around his waist. All you regret and sadness about Barry melted away at every touch, and every look Oliver sent your way.

“You are my first choice. I love you,” he said pressing his forehead to yours.

“I love you too,” you reply smiling at him.

Hey! I saw your post on HOO continuity errors and I was wondering what some of them were. I know the one I picked up was when Blackjack spontaneously turned from female to male😂

There’s a full list on the official wiki here, but I’ll highlight a few of my personal favourites (only ones that actually impact the plot, though there are plenty of ridiculous name swaps that should be noted) for you too:

Plot:

  • [SoN] Thanatos tells Frank after the giant is unconscious that they will meet again in unfavorable circumstances. However, this meeting does not occur at all, even until the end of the series.
  • [SoN] Hazel is told by Pluto that her curse would be washed off by a descendant of Neptune. However, further details about who washed it off, how, where, when, etc., are not mentioned even until the last book.
  • [TLH] When Jason’s memories return, he mentions Hazel as a good friend of his. However in The House of Hades, Hazel admits that she has a hard time warming up to him, and that she can’t get a read on him… This implies that the two barely knew each other before Jason disappears. (He may have considered her a friend while she didn’t return the feeling.)
  • [MoA] Hercules warns Piper and Jason that he will kill them and their friends on the Argo II if they try and contact them. Later when Piper thinks of a plan to pass Hercules without giving him the Cornucopia, she uses an Iris Message to contact them.
  • [HoH] Nico bitterly says that since he is a son of Hades, he has no friends and “might as well be covered in blood or sewage,” judging from how almost all other demigods fear and hate him. However in The Last Olympian after Nico helps save Olympus, Percy states that everybody acted friendly with him and complimented his amazing fighting skills. Even the Ares demigods consider him “pretty cool.”
  • [BoO] Neither Hazel nor Frank’s curses are resolved.
  • [BoO] Percy’s fatal flaw of loyalty doesn’t come into play, despite being hyped up throughout the series.

Timeline:

  • [MoA] Percy mentions that he knew the Romans for weeks. However by this point in the series he had only known the Romans for about ten days, including the time he spent with Frank and Hazel on his quest.
  • [SoN] Percy yells at Hera for taking eight months of his life from him. However Percy was only gone for six months, as he vanished from Camp Half-Blood on December 13 and then appeared at Camp Jupiter in late June. (Percy might have thought that he was gone that long, because Jason went missing from the Roman Camp in October, eight months before the book’s events. He eventually realized his error in The Mark of Athena.) [Even so, where the hell was Percy being kept between December and June????]
  • [TLH] While Jason is looking at the old photo of Annabeth Chase, Luke Castellan, and Thalia Grace in Cabin One, it is said that in the photo Thalia was “maybe fifteen”- however, Thalia couldn’t have been any older than twelve or thirteen at the time the photo was taken.
  • [MoA] Percy mentions that it has been five years since he arrived at Camp Half-Blood. However The Mark of Athena only takes place four years after the events of The Lightning Thief.
  • [Various] Nico’s age is stated to be 14, but according to the timeline of PJO he should only be 13.

Bonus! Things from other books in the universe that don’t match HoO:

PJO:

  • Chiron claims that the Titans are still alive but imprisoned. This seems to be supported by Poseidon telling Percy that the Titans cannot die anymore than the gods can. However, their claims are contradicted in House of Hades when Krios says that Jason Grace killed him.
  • Percy speaks in Latin, although Greek demigods should speak in Greek and not Latin.
  • In The Blood of Olympus, Nico claims that he did not design the Hades cabin despite him designing and having it built in The Last Olympian.

The Demigod Files:

  • During their trek through the Underworld with Nico di Angelo, Percy thinks to himself that because Thalia is now immortal, she had not aged since about a year ago, and that would mean he was now older than her. However, Thalia was a day younger than sixteen when she became a Hunter in The Titan’s Curse, and since The Sword of Hades takes place on Christmas Day of the same year as The Battle of the Labyrinth, Percy would only be about fifteen and a half and therefore younger than Thalia.
  • In The Lost Hero Nyssa tells Leo Valdez that Charles Beckendorf found the Bronze Dragon in pieces and rebuilt it. However, in The Demigod Files, Percy Jackson, Annabeth Chase, and Silena Beauregard were the ones who found the dragon, and Annabeth fixed it.

The Demigod Diaries:

  • Thalia said that Amaltheia led her to find Luke the night that she ran away. But Thalia said that she ran away when Jason disappeared when he was two, and since she was seven when he was born, that would’ve made her nine-years-old, but Thalia and Luke only knew each other a few months before they met Annabeth, and they were 12 and 14-years-old.
  • It is mentioned that Leo has been working on the Argo II for two months, despite this story taking place less than a week after the events of The Lost Hero.

Bonus Bonus! Submitted by other people who read my post:

  • @hesperathusa said: NO THE MOST ANNOYING THING WAS POSEIDON TEASING PERCY ABOUT HAVING SIBLING IN TLO AND HIM NOT HAVING ANY IN HoO!!!!!!!! Ughhhhhh
  • Anonymous said: Did the scene in BoO with Jason talking to Percy about him wanting to die seem a tad OOC? I know Jason is awkward with stuff like that and all (ie: Cupid scene) but I think he’d know better and encourage Percy to talk it out or something?
  • @percabeth-is-endless added: don’t forget enough with the ‘no demigod will heal your heart’ bullshit with reyna like can she just be healed on her own??

guess what I wrote fic because I decided to take Barry’s advice to Iris to “keep running” literally aka ‘Iris and Cisco go running together in the mornings’ (now on AO3)

Iris West spends a lot of time with Cisco after Barry vanishes into the Speed Force. Barry isn’t dead (which is…hard to explain to her colleagues) but she’s still feeling something like grief. And Cisco helps. She knows that what happened to Barry and what happened to Cisco can’t really be compared, but Cisco shares grief counseling tips with her anyway. (She can’t go to the actual classes - that would be like admitting that Barry was gone for real. And what would it look like to the other group members if her dead fiance came back to life?)

Cisco tells her that sticking to a routine - not playing video games for hours for hours on end - helped him after Dante died. Barry told her to keep running, and, well, that’s what she’s going to do. And an exercise buddy is the best way to keep accountability, so that’s how she and Cisco ended up jogging together three mornings a week.

She has a little bit more stamina than Cisco, but, well, she was better at boxing than cross-country. And running helps, it really does. Cisco jokes that cardio is part of his “superhero training”, but it’s just…nice to spend time with him. Sometimes they chat, sometimes they run in silence, and sometimes Cisco blasts Work, Bitch from his phone. The routine helps. Cisco helps (and she thinks it’s helping Cisco too.)

And, well, running makes her feel closer to Barry. Iris doesn’t have speed coursing through her veins, but she’s running on the same streets he ran on. Barry is gone, but she and Cisco brought him back one time, there’s no reason they can’t do it again, right?

In the meantime, she’ll keep running.
