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

“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.

Oh WOAh

I just realized that each 3rd Marvel Solo superhero film has a repeated pattern…

Iron man 3: Stark lost/got rid of the arc reactor

Captain America 3 (aka Civil War): Cap lost/gave up his shield

Thor 3 (aka ragnarok): Thor lost his hammer

They all lost a symbol of themselves. For Stark, the arc reactor was a literal part of him, keeping him alive all those years. For Captain America, the shield is a symbol of freedom and the one thing that was around from his past. For Thor, his hammer is the symbol of his power. 

In every 3rd solo movie, they have lost their symbol if you will and become all the better for it. Stark no longer has to worry about whether he’s going to die if the reactor fails. Cap no longer needs the shield cause he has Bucky and doesn’t need to hide behind a shield anymore. Thor no longer has to rely on his hammer for his power, but is now the source of power himself.

I don’t know if this was intentional, but since it’s Marvel I’m gonna say yes. So Props, Marvel.
