the third son

Lance hands Pidge a small device that he pulls from his jacket pocket without any preamble or showmanship. “See if you can translate it,” he says, looking particularly grim, “but you’ll get the idea just from seeing it.”

Pidge frowns, but slots the device into a port on her laptop as everyone else gathers around behind her. A moment later an image pops up on her screen, and her eyes widen at the sight. Keith hisses through his teeth, and Allura emits a strangled sounding, “What?”

It’s a wanted poster. There’s no doubt about that. Pidge hasn’t decrypted it yet, but the appearance is universal enough. Worse, the photo is Shiro’s, still wearing that awful Galra prison uniform, with that all too familiar scar and white fringe of hair.

From @velkynkarma‘s fic, Seven Vargas

Summary: Shiro has a bad habit of disappearing unexpectedly. But the team really should have anticipated it this time, with him being the most wanted person on the planet.

Warnings: Blood, injury, bad language, kidnapping, ptsd, minor OC character death

Molly Weasley watched her third oldest son turning his back to their family but never gave up on him.

Molly Weasley saw her husband at his weakest moment as he laid wounded in St. Mungo’s hospital. She never understood what muggles thought when they started praying to their god(s):                                                                         But that night as she sat at her husband’s hospital bed she couldn’t help but fold her hands, close her eyes and just hope that there was indeed a greater deity that could bring her husband back to her family.

Molly Weasley put a bandage around her fifth son’s head when he was bleeding onto her sofa, his ear ripped away. She did not let her heart and actions be ruled by panic and fear. She would not  risk her son’s life like that.

Molly Weasley saw her son that wasn’t her son dead in Hagrid’s arms and did not show how she broke inside. Instead, she gripped her wand a little tighter, bit her lip a little stronger and started to fight a lot grimmer.

Molly Weasley cried over her fourth son’s cold body, his last laugh still etched into his face. She witnessed her fifth son crumbling right then and there. She saw her family grieving and crying. She went through hell but reminded herself to keep going.

Molly Weasly got up and stared straight into the eyes of Narcissa Malfoy. 

Proud woman, blonde hair, pale skin.

Split lips, bloody cloak, sad eyes.

They did not exchange one word.

But one glance was enough.

Narcissa’s eyes darted to Fred, to Harry, then back to Molly. Her lean finger’s tightened indiscernibly around her son’s bony shoulder.

A nod.

The war had taken enough lifes. Enough children.

And as one mother to another, Molly Weasley nodded back.

Ok so I see Percy telling Grover about his quest with Hazel and Frank and he’s complaining

Percy: I WAS ON A QUEST WITH THEM FOR DAYS!

Percy: GODS IT’S AWKWARD BECAUSE I’M LIKE, THIRD WHEELING

Percy: INSIDE MY HEAD I WAS THINKING ‘WHY CAN’T YOU SEE YOU TWO LOVE EACH OTHER’ GODS IT WAS HORRIBLE!

Grover: Percy…

Grover: THAT QUEST ONLY TOOK DAYS

Grover: DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO PUT UP WITH YOU AND ANNABETH FOR FIVE, FRICKIN YEARS!

When I was reading The Hidden Oracle I realized something I’m not sure how to put it into words, it’s so easy to explain it in spanish but I have a hard time explaining in english, but I’m gonna try my best. 

Trials of Apollo is a complete new saga, it’s different than Heroes of Olympus because that saga was more connected to PJO. But TOA? It’s a new beginning, it’s for a new generation of kids, it’s the start of another era, Percy and his friends, the original campers, they are no longer at camp, it’s the time of a new generation of campers, inside the book and outside the book. 

Reading TOA is a bittersweet experience and I can say the reason of that is all the small explanations Riordan had to add to the books, we know who is Paul, we know Tyson is a cyclops and Percy’s brother and we definitely know who Annabeth is, but the new readers? The ones whose first touch to the Riordan world is this book? They have no idea of any of that. They are the new campers, they are the ones who are gonna grow with Meg and Lester and Kayla and Austin and the new batch of campers the same way we did with Percy and Annabeth and Clarisse and Silena and the others.

Having Percy at the start and the end of this book is Riordan’s way of Percy passing the torch to Lester. This is not his story anymore, he has grown up, he is off to college, his era of being a hero is done. Percy is now on his way to becoming a legend and it’s Lester and Meg’s turn to be the heroes. Sure, Percy is not going to disappear off the saga, it’s Riordan we are talking about and Percy is his third son, but his role is the same role Chiron had on the PJO saga Percy is the mentor now, no longer the kid who needed help.  And for me, a girl who sees Percy as my hero, Percy who helped me when I needed someone the most? Is absolutely heartbreaking but at the same time I can’t help but feel happy for all the new kids who are gonna have Lester as his Hero. Because this is just not a new saga, this is a new saga filled with all types of representation to little kids who are gonna read this and see that some campers have two dads, maybe just like them, or look! Apollo likes boys and girls! just like me! All the representation this book has and this saga is going to have just makes my heart so incredibly full and warm. 

And this is why reading Trials of Apollo is so bittersweet to me.

Thank you, thank you to the wonderful @kurosmind​ for this fantastic painting of my Thelrand Lavellan as he would appear in DA4! I am in love with the Dread Wolf motif on his shield, the seriousness of his expression, the lighting, the subtle blood splatter, everything! Definitely super happy with this piece. Go forth and commission them whenever you can!

“Gansey had always felt as if there were two of him: the Gansey who was in control, able to handle any situation, able to talk to anyone, and then, the other, more fragile Gansey, strung out and unsure, embarrassingly earnest, driven by naive longing.”
