Headcanon that Annabeth used to have a southern accent because like she lived in Richmond, Virginia till she was 7, and her family actually only moved to San Francisco when she was 14 so….

Like just imagine little Annabeth talking with a southern accent with Thalia and Luke while they were on the run

And maybe, yeah it’s gone, but it comes back sometimes and Percy thinks it’s the cutest thing ever

And she teases back about his New York accent, but she loves it too

On this day in music history: March 26, 1985 - “Southern Accents”, the sixth album by Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers is released. Produced by Tom Petty, Jimmy Iovine, Mike Campbell, David A. Stewart and Robbie Robertson, it is recorded at Gone Gator, Village Recorders, Sunset Sound and Church Studio from Late 1983 - Early 1985. The bands first new album in nearly three years, Petty and the Heartbreakers work with Dave Stewart of Eurythmics as well as Robbie Robertson of The Band. It is originally conceived as a “concept album” about Petty’s southern roots, it is abandoned when the three songs that he co-writes with Stewart do not fit the original theme. Sessions are tense with band members arguing over the creative direction of the album. At one point while mixing the track “Rebels”, Petty punches a wall in frustration, shattering his left hand, requiring extensive surgery to reconstruct the bones in his hand. A lengthy recovery period afterward further delays the albums’ completion. It spins off three singles including “Don’t Come Around Here No More” (#13 Pop), and “Make It Better (Forget About Me)” (#54 Pop). “Southern Accents” peaks at number seven on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA.
