tam this is for you

hey yall. i just realized something.

this is probably gonna be long but whatever. stick with me.

soooo im currently rereading the original pjo series. and i am feeling. so many. things. i realized a lot of things too.

okayyy so in PJO, we view percy as reckless. stupid. always acting on impulse. basically that dumb guy that never thinks befire doing things. BUT in HOO, we start viewing him as mature and smart and strategic and all that. But he didnt grow THAT much. Percy didnt age that much in hoo.

Remember that iconic scene (Mark of Athena, i think?) where they meet some kind of monster/bad ppl (im too lazy to search it up) aboard the argo II and it was percy that thought of saying that Dionysus was with them? Percy knew about their fear of dionysus, and how he turned them inti dolphins. So he got some diet coke as “proof” that he was there and asked frank to turn into a dolphin. Genius, right?

Annabeth called him smart after that.

That was the only time we considered him smart. (Well not ONLY, just one of the few times.) But guess what? He’s been doing smart shit like that for years already.

I cant really mention all of the times he did something smart/wise. If i did it would take me days before i finish typing.

So i realized why we only thought he was smart in hoo but not in pjo.

In PJO, it was in first person, so we saw everything through the eyes of percy. In this series, he only focused about how stupid he was, about how great other people were and how better they are then him. But he doesnt focus about all the good/smart/wise things he’s done. Percy doesnt know that he’s smart. All he knows is that he is stupid, worthless, and all other negative things.

in HOO, however, we were reading from another person’s point of view. We saw percy from another person’s eyes. We noticed things that he doesnt notice himself.

Hazel called him a god, once, because he was just THAT attractive. Everyone else looked up to him, and thinks he’s the most powerful/strongest person to exist.

But Percy doesnt know that. All he knows is that he’s stupid.

SOOOO, long story short, Percy hates himself.

Ok bye sorry if this was long I just love Percy so much and i a m f e e l i n g s o m U C h

everyone wants to fall in love because someone has to set your soul on fire, as the poets say, but i am not a poet just a girl who wants to kiss you in the most sacred way.

i could write about you all day & if you think spending twelve hours on you is a lot wait until i throw myself off seacliffs and kiss you where it hurts, until i spend days memorizing you and the way you could just burn me to nothing if you really wanted to.

and maybe things will fall apart before we get there but our cats are waiting for breakfast in the kitchen and sunlight is filtering through the blinds so wake up, my love, and let’s live

Tam-Tam Vs Lord sexy of night court

Tamlin: *in bed* I don’t want you to say another male’s name

Rhysand: *in bed* I fell in love with you because you reminded me of Cassian

See the difference between a crazy obsessive possessive male who knows that he is a tool and the glorious warrior fully confident in his male-hood


Alexander Skarsgård as Tamlin, anyone?

Perfect combo of abs and blondeness and brooding for Tim Tam. IMHO

It’s an odd and beautiful tale that insists on the agency of its heroine. Tam Lin’s body betrays him by turning into anything the fairies please, but Janet has the ultimate control and final say over her own body: it’s she who initially seduces Tam Lin and she who ultimately decides on the terms of her pregnancy. She’s willing to have the baby if there’s a father in the picture, but she makes it clear that otherwise, she’ll terminate the pregnancy. And it is Janet’s strength and power that saves Tam Lin — and she saves him from another powerful woman.

But the Fairy Queen gets the last word, and the eeriness of her threat to Tam Lin settles over the hopefulness of Janet’s triumph in a creepy, skin-crawling moment that makes this story perfect for Halloween.

some fave sally ride facts

hey pals, I just finished reading sally ride: america’s first woman in space, by lynn sherr, and here’s a collection of my fave sally ride facts:

  • her favorite constellation was orion, because you can find it so easily
  • one of her first jobs was babysitting.  she made the kids pb&j sandwiches, but they wouldn’t eat them because “the peanut butter was on the wrong side of the bread.”  sally threw out the sandwiches and never babysat again.
  • she stopped drinking coors beer when she found out joseph coors had opposed the equal rights amendment 
  • she told the u.s. ambassador to norway that his rape joke wasn’t funny
  • exxonmobil gave millions of dollars to her “sally ride science” teacher training academies.  it was a business compromise between an oil company and an environmentally proactive nonprofit, and during each keynote speech, sally would make a comment about “oil spills” or “oily money” and glance over at the exxonmobil rep before moving on.
  • she had a border collie when she was a kid, and two bichon frises with her partner, tam.
  • watching barefoot contessa was a daily ritual, and she loved ina garten’s meatloaf
  • when her relationship with tam started getting serious, tam asked “is this forever?” and sally responded “I can’t think more than five years ahead.”  so every five years, tam would ask her “are we renewing?” they ended up being together for 27 years. when she was dying of cancer, sally told tam “I wish I had another 27 years with you.”
