Rick Riordan is such an underrated author

He is literally an author that give Tumblr diversity in popular books and yet it go mostly ignored. He has featured:

-Interracial couples

-Bisexual characters

-Gay characters

-Gay POC

-Pansexual characters

-Gender fluid characters

-Characters with disabilities (mental and physical)

-Asexual characters

-Children from abusive homes

-Characters with PTSD

-Characters with depression

-Representation of different cultures and religions

-Homeless teens

-Talks about racism 

-Talks about the horrible nature of parents kicking out their non-hetero-normative children

-Talks about abusive parents in general

-Talks about the importance of religion to someone’s beliefs

-Talks about how family is important

-Talks about how you are not your family

-Talks about how you can make your own family from the friends that support you

That is probably not every single one but thost are the ones I can think of off the top of my head. Rick Riordan makes these concepts important in his books and honestly makes the more complicated ones easy to understand. I know some may consider his books a bit more childish but it’s important to show young readers the different types of people in the world. It’s important to show them that heroes can come in every type of person. 

So stop sleeping on him

(6/?) Favorite Teams - The Empty Cups

“Don’t worry, kid.“ Blitz brought out the silken cord. “This rope can’t be weakened. And Hearthstone’s right. We might as well tie it to one another for safety.”
“That way if we fall,” Sam said, “We’ll fall together.
Sold,” I said, trying to tamp down my anxiety. “I love dying with friends.

  • Magnus: it's nice to meet you guys I'm Magnus. It's pretty cool you guys have a whole camp and that's there's other beings like us. Honestly, we were all pretty-
  • Nico: you're dead why are you dead
  • Percy:
  • Annabeth:
  • Jason:
  • Piper:
  • Hazel:
  • Samirah:
  • Blitz:
  • Hearth:

  • Alex: he's onto us guys
Weekend plans
  • Percy: Annabeth, hey! So I was thinking that maybe we could go watch that movie we wanted to see tonight? And tomorrow, let's go for a drive with Grover and Juniper. The beach or something and have a picnic. We haven't done that in a while. And then on Sunday, we could go to Camp. Jason and Piper are going to be there too and then we could go-
  • Annabeth: WE NEED TO GO TO THE OLD VIKING LANDS OF SCANDINAVIA THIS WEEKEND ON THIS SHIP CALLED 'THE SHIP OF THE DEAD' BECAUSE MY COUSIN NEEDS OUR HELP AND ESPECIALLY YOURS TO CALM DOWN THE ANGRY NORSE SEA GODS WHO HATE HIM SO THAT HIS QUEST TO PUT LOKI BACK IN CHAINS TO PREVENT THE END OF THE WORLD GOES SMOOTHLY.
  • Percy:
  • Percy: -or we could do that
friendly reminders that
  • frank is lactose intolerant
  • hazel doesn’t know what a chicken nugget is
  • nico literally had a nightmare about popcorn. popcorn
  • carter kane essentially did the same thing for zia rashid that leo did for calypso. keep that in mind.
  • bianca willingly left nico twice in both life and death, once to join the hunters and then to be reborn
  • percy can’t control the mist. thalia and hazel can.
  • jason hadn’t seen his mother since he was two years old
  • paul is an example of a good stepparent. annabeth’s stepmother is an example of a bad stepparent
  • magnus’s mom had a pixie cut, like alex
  • hazel likes to draw
  • nico likes card games which is a 100% guarantee he is a total nerd for magic the gathering, dungeons and dragons, etc. as well as probably video games and star wars and star trek
  • sadie is dating both anubis and walt
  • dead moms club: nico, bianca, hazel, leo, frank, jason, hedge
  • yes, coach hedge’s mother is dead.
  • piper is a vegetarian
  • pretty much all of frank’s family (except ares, obviously) is dead or presumed dead.
  • jason is near-sighted
  • alex does pottery
  • the titan and giant wars are just two of the wars chiron has been around to see. and he has been around since the original ancient greece.
  • percy is going to be an older brother
  • piper’s dad is famous. so she probably kind of is too, at least to some degree.
  • the three roman emperors that have come back to life are part of the group that has been terrorizing percy and the gang since the beginning
  • grover exists. he’s a member of the council of cloven elders. he and juniper are dating. in case you forgot. (i know rick did…)
  • tyson and ella are dating (also, tyson!!!)
  • rick riordan himself is a character within the series (royal scribe at camp half-blood, receiver of carter and sadie’s recordings, percy’s editor)
  • also, he wrote each book each year (sometimes two in a year). this guy deserves waaaay more credit than he gets
  • anubis likes to chill in graveyards
  • and, finally, may castellan is probably still making sandwiches and baking cookies for a son who will never come

I just want a moment where Alex helps tuck in a strand of Sam’s hair that slipped out since Magnus and the others can’t
(Even though official art Sam got her hair peeking out already)

Because as a muslim who went to school with the majority of it muslim, you’ll eventually experience the moment when your friend helps fix your hijab

Also, extra of Magnus and Amir getting overwhelmed by the sparkles
