the goddess of misery

Taeyeon as Goddesses: Achlys

“And beside them was standing Achlys, dismal and dejected, green and pale, dirty-dry, fallen in on herself with hunger, knee-swollen, and the nails were grown long on her hands, and from her nostrils the drip kept running, and off her cheeks the blood dribbled to the ground, and she stood there, grinning forever, and the dust that had gathered and lay in heaps on her shoulders was muddy with tears.”

Percy Jackson Headcanons
  •  He actually has a very angular face - High cheekbones, narrow face, straight nose. He gets his bone structure from his mother, but where Sally had a softness to all of her features, he gets Poseidon’s natural brooding and regal sharpness. It’s another factor that makes his demeanor a bit intimidating and what makes people peg him as a trouble maker. and so so attractive
  • When he was younger, he used to be left handed. But during the sporadic period when he was rapidly getting kicked out of school and learning how to write, he was placed through many schools that had the old philosophy that being left handed was wrong and forced him to write with his right hand. In the end, it ends up helping him because he learned how to use both hands equally well, becoming ambidextrous, thus also helping his sword fighting.
  • When Sally married Gabe, Percy never told Sally of the abuse he was getting because he thought that if Gabe took out all of his frustrations on him, then there would be nothing left for his mother to receive and was afraid of what Gabe would do.
  • After the Sea of Monsters but before the Battle of the Labyrinth Percy had a mouthful of braces. Annabeth took as many pictures as she could at the time and taped them on the wall of the big house. He tore down all he could find but legend has it, you can still find one or two miraculously appearing up there.
  • His middle name is Dylann, pronounced Die-lin, which means ‘son of the sea.’ Subtlety is not Sally’s specialty and she cannot seem to give him names that are easily pronounced. Teacher’s sigh on the first day of school when they get to his name on their clipboard.
  • Percy is the best get away driver. Paul took him out on his first driving lesson and it was something that came natural to him. And when he was homeless for that period in Son of Neptune and relied on stealing cars he got really good at getting away quickly and efficiently. Especially when he stole that police cruiser.
  • Percy has scars on the insides of his elbows and forearms that almost look like a bad case of chicken pox scars. They’re actually cigarette burns from Gabe. Annabeth, Sally, Grover, are the only ones who know where they’re from.
  • Percy’s clothing is badly torn up. Some is the result of monster fighting, and some is from the constant wear and tear because he refuses to get rid of old clothing, but a lot of it is from skateboarding accidents. He’s actually pretty decent at skateboarding but he’s also pretty decent at falling off of it too.
  • Percy, Piper, and Rachel go skateboarding together sometimes.
  • Before Tartarus, Percy’s eyes were a gentle, warm green, like the middle of a lazy ocean you could get lost in. But after Tartarus they’re fiercer, darker, like a wave in a storm about to drag you to the bottom of the sea.
  • Percy’s favorite type of music is rock. He wanted to learn electric guitar but there was never money he was younger, now he’s too busy with monsters to have the time.
  • Percy is a naturally good surfer, it comes freakishly natural just like anything else that has to do with the ocean. Piper and he go surfing together.
  • When he’s fifteen he is around 5′11″ but he gets in a few more growth spurts before everything is said and done and ends up being just above 6′2″ and parallel to Jason. He loves playfully holding things out of Annabeth’s reach. She punches him when he does that of course.
  • He has a lean build with prominent definition. He has very little body fat and most of his weight comes from his muscles. He has the perfect swimmer body, lithe and agile.  cinnamony roll goodness
  • His hair is black like a raven’s wings and is always windswept and unruly as if he’s always running a hand through it  or like bed hair if you know what I mean
  • He, unlike the other two greek kids of the big three, doesn’t have any freckles or moles of any kind. His mother has very clear skin and het gets it from her just the same, except with the tanner tone of Poseidon.
  • He’s on Goode High’s swim team. He’s much faster than everyone even without his powers and he can’t tell if it’s just a son of Poseidon thing or if he’s actually good. Paul and Sally don’t mind because he knows that’s the only way Percy will get a scholarship with his grades, reputation, and attendance records.
  • Percy is known as the weird kid in school. He has weird scars, disappears for months at a time, and has an off putting demeanor. He doesn’t talk to many people and only does when they talk to him first.
  • His nervous ticks include running his hands through or tugging on his hair, and tapping or playing with Anaklumos in pen form.
  • He walks quietly on his feet, this comes from many different things - Being silent so Gabe couldn’t hear him, trying to sneak past monsters, his training from Lupa, and the period of time he spent running, hiding, and stealing in Son of Neptune.
  • He absolutely sucks at growing facial hair. It grows in in uneven patches and it disappoints him to no end. The guys make fun of him to no end during no shave November.
  • He knows that people underestimate him, he knows that people think of him as a goofball, and he knows that people dismiss him as stupid. Now he uses that to his defense. After torturing the goddess of Misery he can feel that darkness growing in him and his powers growing more, so he spends the entirety of Boo trying to convince everyone he’s fine. He jokes, he smiles, he says stupid things. And for the most part it works. Jason, Leo, and Piper believe it easily, although Hazel and Frank are harder to convince. But he hates the knowing look in Annabeth’s eyes that barely hide that smallest look of fear.
  • After Tartraus he figures out all the things he can do. That he control the blood pumping through someone’s veins. That he can stop someone’s heart stop with the clench of his fingers. That he can make someone die in an explosion of red. The idea terrifies him as much as it exhilarates him.
  • He tries to keep his rapidly growing powers a secret which fails of course, because whenever he has a particularly bad nightmare the ground shakes. That now when he holds Annabeth’s hand he can feel the blood pulsing thickly beneath her skin, gravitating towards him as if he’s a magnet.
  • He trains with Chiron to help find control for several months. 
  • He finds unexpected support from Nico di Angelo, who had gone through a similar thing after Tartarus.
  • He’s angrier often and snaps more easily. He purchases a punching bag and it helps him work through his aggression.
  • Percy and Annabeth go to Montauk for two weeks after the war is over, and he breaks down. Annabeth helps him through everything, saying how he can’t keep everything inside all the time.
  • Percy learns to control the darkness in him, and learns that while it may never go away, he will not be controlled by it.

Have you ever just stopped and thought about how powerful and strong-willed Nico di Angelo actually is?

-He went into Tartarus ALONE OF HIS OWN FREE WILL and came back. Even Percy- who Nico called the most powerful demigod he’s ever met- acknowledged it, and he would’ve literally gone insane if it wasn’t for Annabeth.

-He was so depressed that even the goddess of misery had nothing worse to give him. GODDESS of misery.

-He was almost killed shadow travelling. HADES warned him he could die and he still went on for Camp Halfblood, which never accepted him.( Atleast, that’s what he thought anyway)

-He survived a jar full of poisonous air with just a pomegranate seed per day in coma. And if that’s invalid, he lasted a lot more time than he was supposed to.

-Nico’s agony in Cupid’s palace: Grass around him dying, stones cracking and waves of darkness rolling off him so strong that when they hit Jason, he almost lost consciousness. JUST WAVES.

-He’s scared of Love more than he is of Tartarus. Him coming out of his shell and being able to tell everyone(or at least some people) about his feelings-something that wouldn’t have been accepted AT ALL during his time…

-When Nico got mad at him, Jason wanted to draw his sword just in case and he thought Nico might be MORE THAN HE COULD HANDLE even though he’d met plenty of scary demigods before.

-This may or may not seem to be a very solid argument, but strong willed because when he met Percy at Camp Jupiter, he STILL LOVED HIM, and Percy probably looked so lost and forlorn, wouldn’t you have blurted out even 1 tiny thing that could’ve made him feel a little less helpless?

-How many 12 year olds can achieve the title GHOST KING? Even if they WERE Hades’ kids.

-He radiates death, KRONOS’ ARMY fell back from him.

-He matured so much after ‘The Last Olympian’ no one needs me to explain this point further.

No but do you know how substantial the snapping moment Percy had in Tartarus was when he tortured the Goddess of Misery? How significant his moment of realization was?

The white-green poison kept pooling, little streams trickling from the plants as the venomous lake around him got wider and wider. Lake, he thought. Streams. Water. Probably it was just his brain getting fried from poison fumes, but he croaked out a laugh. Poison was liquid. If it moved like water, it must be partially water. He remembered some science lecture about the human body being mostly water. He remembered extracting water from Jason’s lungs back in Rome… If he could control that, then why not other liquids?

Up until that point, Percy hadn’t really controlled things that were partially water. Salt water and pure water sure, but never liquids that were only part water. The only other time in my recent memory where he had done something vaguely similar was when he willed Piper’s Cornucopia to spew Diet Coke, and even then he wasn’t really controlling the Diet Coke itself. Or the time where he controlled sewage water, but he was still controlling the water in it, not the debris polluting it.

The reason why this moment is so important is because it was a monumental shift in his powers. The ability to manipulate and control all liquids that are only partial water is a power with scary potential. As Percy said himself, the human body is mostly water. Up to 60% of the human adult body is water. The brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water. The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79%, and even the bones are watery: 31%.

Like do you know the endless possibilities to this?? He could literally clench his fingers and you’d be splattered like a bug on the windshield.

But, you’re asking, if he had this insane power why didn’t we see it in Blood of Olympus?

The one main reason is this: 

Annabeth sounded terrified. It took Percy a moment to realize she was terrified of him.

“Percy, please don’t ever…” Her voice broke in a sob. “Some things aren’t meant to be controlled. Please.” 

His whole body tingled with power, but the anger was subsiding. The broken glass inside him was beginning to smooth at the edges.

“Yeah,” he said. “Yeah, okay.”

Percy, I think, after leaving Tartarus and was able to think with a clearer mind would have vowed to never use a power like this if it had scared Annabeth to an such an extreme. But the real question is if is he would want to use it.

Do I believe that is the end of that display? Absolutely not. I think he would have trouble controlling a power like that, the way his emotions are so finally tuned with his powers in all. And with him trying to keep it a secret, it’s bound to get spilled. 

In fact I think with proper training he could use his newfound powers to his extreme benefit.

All I’m saying is that Percy is scary powerful and with no narration from him in boo, I think there is a lot more significance to that scene in Tartarus.

The Hunter’s Son Pt. 2

A/N: I had way too much fun writing this chapter. Today’s gif is brought to you by Google. I do not own it. Feedback is always welcome! 

~Series Masterlist~

Sam sighed as his brother paced, practically repeating everything he told him.

“So let me get this straight… Back in college she was dared to go into an abandoned place off campus. So you tag along and there was a ghost?”

“Yes Dean. I just didn’t want her going alone okay?”

Dean hummed, “Then the ghost appeared and you handled it. She found out…”

Sam groaned, completely done with this conversation now. “Yes! She even helped me, and she was terrified might I add. She didn’t wanna be alone after that and we drank a couple of beers back at my dorm room. I told her everything okay? I know I shouldn’t have but I did.”

“Then you two hooked up,” Dean teased.

“What? No! Dean seriously?”

“Is that how you two became a thing?”

Sam groaned, “We only had one class. She hated me. But after that it changed okay? Yes we hooked up but not on that night! Y/N was just a small thing before Jess…. That’s it.”

Greek Mythology - Uncommon Deity Aesthetics

O I Z Y S, Goddess of Misery, Depression, Woe, Anxiety and Suffering

Oizys was a daughter of Nyx, and sometimes Erebus as well. She was the twin to Momus, the God of Satire and Mockery. 

While not much is out there on Oizys, she is at times mentioned to feel guilt for those whom are affected by the suffering that is always lingering around her. Imagine: laying a heavy burden across anothers shoulders, draping them with pain and sadness…Hearing their wails and cries as they crumble underneath such an overwhelming power…How could one not feel even the slightest ounce of remorse from knowing that you are the cause of their suffering?

Who knows…She has never attempted to ease the pains that she has caused.

Who wants a really super long annoying post as to why Percy is in Slytherin and doesn’t belong in any of the other houses? That’s right you don’t, but I’m going to give it to you anyway.

Okay, let’s start with slashing off everyone’s immediate choice - Hufflepuff.

You might belong in Hufflepuff, where they are just and loyal.

  • Just - based on or behaving according to what is morally right and fair. Synonyms include fair, equitable, impartial, unbiased, objective, neutral. Yeah…. I don’t really think so. I can think of only a few occasions where Percy has exhibited any of those ‘just’ traits. Using officialclarkkent’s example, you can reference any situation where Percy was not suppose to go on a quest and then went anyway. A shining moment is in TC, where he knew for a fact that the people going on the quest for Artemis were perfectly capable then went anyway because of his personal feelings for Annabeth.
  • The next tidbit is loyalty, which I am willing to give you. But one little detail is that Percy’s fatal flaw is personal loyalty. Meaning that Percy would ‘sacrifice the world to save a friend.’ And you know what other house is all about personal loyalty?? Basically Slytherin is about selective loyalty and once you betray that, it’s pretty much gone forever. I.E. Nico, who despite apologizing for nearly an entire book for betraying Percy, Percy still was distrustful of him all throughout the second series.

Those patient Hufflepuffs are true, and unafraid of toil.

  • We’ve pretty much covered true but unafraid of toil? He’s brave, but unafraid toil? No. Percy will fight and put up a strong front but you can bet that there’s an 80% chance he’s afraid. Like there are many examples but to name a few: The Fury, Medusa, the Gods, the war, the prophecy, dropping his sword in front of Tartarus… literally anything. 

 Valuing hard work, patience, and fair play. Hufflepuffs are not as competitive as the other houses.

  • Hardwork is a give or take. Percy will only put his all into something if he wants to. If not, it probably won’t get done. 
  • Patience. Do I even have to explain how impatient this boy is?
  • Fair Play. Like that time when he used the knowledge that Gaea wanted him for a sacrifice, so he then manipulated her into giving him the correct vial of gorgon’s blood in what was supposedly a fair chance game? Yeah, fair play is not really Percy’s forte.
  • Not Competitive. Remember how Percy and Jason fought over who could kill the other? Or how competitive he is with Annabeth in literally everything? He’s competitive, no doubt about it.
  • Now one of the biggest arguments I hear is that Percy is so kind and friendly, he has to be Hufflepuff. But friendliness and kindliness are not exclusive house traits. You can be extremely evil in Hufflepuff just as you can be extremely friendly in Slytherin.
  • So to conclude, I can see loyalty making him Hufflepuff, but other than that? Nothing? Is loyalty all we are really going amount his sorting to? When he’s such a complex character, I find it hard using only his fatal flaw to sort him, especially since loyalty is a Slytherin trait as well.

Okay next house - Gryffindor. We’re skipping Ravenclaw because that seems to be the only thing we all agree he can’t be.

You might belong in Gryffindor, where dwell the brave at heart. Their daring, nerve, and chivalry set Gryffindors apart.

  • Despite being afraid, he has the brave, daring, and nerve down. Chivalrous? Not really. Towards Annabeth of course, but everyone else? Naw. This kid pretty much cheats his way out of everything if given the chance.
  • Gryffindor seems a better fit than Hufflepuff, but I do agree with the fact that his loyalty plays a big part in his personality. But to clarify - his loyalty should not be the only deciding factor when he is sorted.

Now, let’s hear what Slytherin is all about.

Or perhaps in Slytherin, you’ll make your real friends.

  • ‘Real friends.’ That sounds interesting. Kinda funny how Percy is all about personal loyalty and would sacrifice the world to save a friend

Those cunning folk use any means, to achieve their ends.

  • Cunning - having or showing skill in achieving one’s ends by deceit or evasion. Once again, like how Percy used the knowledge that Gaea wanted him for a sacrifice, so he then manipulated her into giving him the correct vial of gorgon’s blood? Or how at twelve years old, he killed Crusty by manipulating the guy to lay down on one of his own beds and decapitating him? Or how he manipulated Bob to kill his own brother by ensuring that they were friends?
  • ‘Any means to achieve their ends.’ Like keeping the grey sisters’ eye until they gave him the information he needed in sos? Or torturing the Goddess of Misery for revenge?

Slytherin valued qualities are cleverness, resourcefulness, determination, leadership, and “a certain disregard for the rules.”

  • Cleverness. Like the time percy cheated in rock, paper, scissors to insure that Briares would come with them in tbl? Or in sos when he was battling Luke on the cruise ship, opened up an Iris Message, and then manipulated Luke into confessing he poisoned Thalia’s tree to the entire camp? 
  • Resourcefulness. Like when being attacked by the Minotaur at age twelve with no training and ripping off one of its horns to use as a weapon? Or when fighting Ares, he maneuvered himself so he was in the ocean and got the upper hand? Or when they were trying to navigate the Labyrinth and got Rachel Dare to help them?
  • Percy is so clever and resourceful you don’t even know.
  • Determination. Do you even need examples for this one?
  • Leadership. Huh. Sorta like the time he lead Camp Half-Blood in a war and strategically (and affectively) placed the campers around New York to protect the city? And how pretty much everyone listened to him without a second thought because he obviously knew what he was doing? And how he is a co-leader at camp? And in the few days he was at Camp Jupiter he was offered praetorship?
  • “A certain disregard for rules.” The first book literally opened with him worrying that his school would find out he copied his essay off line or figured out about the illegal stash of candy he was selling. Then there’s the fact he blatantly disregards the rules at Camp Half-Blood and just went off on quests he wasn’t suppose to be on. Or how he’s impertinent to the gods which is a huge no-no?
  • Like wow Percy pretty much exemplifies nearly all the Slytherin traits. 

Sorting can be extremely difficult and no one’s a perfect fit but seriously, if we sort unbiasedly, basing it off of Percy’s many many personality traits and not solely on the fact his fatal flaw loyalty, there is no doubt that Percy is Slytherin.

Ok so I have to get this off my chest (this might be a spoiler for those who haven’t read the percy jackson series or the heroes of olympus series)

I’m TERRIFIED of dark percy. TERRIFIED.

Seeing that side of him throughout the pjo and thoo series was genuinely terrifying for me because I never thought he’d take in that side of him, until I read the house of hades. The scene between him and the goddess of misery absolutely scared me shitless. When he laughed, when he was killing her; all of that struck something inside of me. He literally had the goddess of misery at her knees and he enjoyed it. I’m not just terrified of dark percy, but I’m also terrified for percy himself. Now of course I wanna see dark percy about once or twice in the trials of apollo, because it’s percy jackson (duh), but I wanna see him either overcome or realise this change inside of him in the series too.

Now we all know Percy as the sarcastic little shit who we all love and that seeing him go dark is either really sad/scary or really exciting (it’s up to you), but think about it; Percy Jackson - son of Poseidon and Sally Jackson, the one who destroyed Kronos and Typhon, the one who defeated Ares, helped destroy Gaia and rescued Thanatos, etc - turns dark and changes forever. Leaves the hearts of everyone he loves and holds dear. It’s scary. Scary that someone who risked their life about a gazillion times to rescue anyone and everyone, just turns away and becomes dark. Just think about what would happen. Empathy link with Grover and Grover himself; gone. The love emitting from everyone around him; gone. Chiron; gone. His friends; gone. Tyson; gone. Annabeth; gone. His own mother will be freaking out over her son that changed so much. 

Rick Riordan, I love you so much, really I do, but I swear to god; if you throw Percy down that deep, dark hole again, I will find you and I will- ok best not go there.

I guess you do not want to solve this problem. Okay, however you like. There is no problem for me, if it is the same for you, there's nothing to chat. But I think your style is really changed. I know, you want to be original (you're already like that), but that's not a desire. When you want it you get tooooo strange, for sure. Anyway, do what you want. Btw When my sims get 3 in 100? Wow, great imagination! Well...Honestly, I'm not sorry about your friend. She shouldn't accuse everyone there.

Anybody able to translate or fill me in on what this is about? 

I like my “stranger” creations. It keeps the creative juices flowing. Thought I would celebrate them despite this little dig against them :)

Here are some of my favourites: my badass grandma Baddie Winkle, my Nightmare Before Christmas family, my goddess of misery Achlys Goth and finally, my little elf Isilynore Loraleth.

Since I haven't read Pjo in a loooong time, I don't recall Percy being morally ambiguous or having gray morality but I see people describing him as such. Can you explain?

While this is once again opinion, I believe this perception is born from the fact that a lot of Percy’s motives, decisions, and character traits throughout the series are neither right or wrong nor black and white

While his actions tend to have good outcomes, that does not mean they were produced from a moral correctness. And while he can be, and often is, morally correct, that does not mean he is overall morally correct.

Personally, I find Percy’s decision making and thought process is heavily heavily tied to his emotions and his opinions. He’s a biased person, and because of that he’s not objective, neutral, or impartial.

In The Son of Neptune, Juno had to promise him something that would benefit Percy so he would carry her across the lake, instead of doing it out of kindness like she first suggested.

In The Last Olympian, Percy helped set explosives on ship and then turned around and told demigods on said ship to get off of it, potentially ruining the mission, because he didn’t want them to get hurt

In The House of hades, he tortured a goddess so she would feel his misery. He manipulated Bob to kill his own brother.

His actions sometimes tend to contradict each other. He’ll do something morally correct followed by something morally wrong and vice versa. 

And let’s not forget his fatal flaw - loyalty. While that’s a wonderful trait to have and is very much a considered a white morality trait, let’s not forget that it’s his flaw. He’s loyal… to a fault. He would sacrifice the world to save a friend. That is not a good sense of right and wrong. That is not morally correct. 

This is not to say Percy is a bad person - he is very wonderful person and cares very very deeply for the wellbeing of others and his friends, and while that makes him selfless, it makes him very selfish. Once again, he would sacrifice the world for a friend.
