Naming My Books Pt. 2
Today, we're doing Percy Jackson And The Olympians!!
...And The Lightning Thief: Grover (Used to be: Percy)
...And The Sea Of Monsters: Tyson (Used to be: Annabeth)
...And The Titan's Curse: Thalia (Was about to be: Blackjack)
...And The Battle Of The Labyrinth: Rachel (I didn't want to. I had to.)
...And The Last Olympian: Luke
What instruments I think the Seven would play
(Not including if they can sing, that’s another post)
Okay I know everyone wants him to play piano, and yeah, I can see him playing piano. But I don’t know why, but Percy gives off ukulele vibes. So yeah, instead of playing piano like a pro, I imagine him softly playing songs on the ukulele with Annabeth.
…she can’t play instruments. Like, she helps out at camp with a tambourine or whatever, but despite her dexterity, she cannot play instruments.
You know, y’all are probably thinking: “Bruh, what instrument could Jason possibly play?” Well, you know what instruments the Romans played in the army? Trumpets. That’s it, ma boi Jason, before leading as Praetor, during his years as soldier and later Centurion, ma boi was the one signaling orders with a trumpet. And occasionally, that trumpet also doubled as an alarm for the fifth cohort.
I feel like Grandpa Tom taught Piper traditional Cherokee instruments (or modernised versions of them) when she was younger, but Piper to me always gave guitar vibes. To me, she felt like one of those girls who’d strum away on an acoustic guitar for days at times.
Can confirm, 95% of Asians kids, especially Chinese kids were nudged to do an instrument when they were little. They can drop it later to focus on their studies, but there was at least one instrument in primary school. That instrument, was piano for Frank. I was gonna go with violin, but I thought to myself, can you really see Frank with a violin? Uh uh. So yeah, Frank learnt and played the piano with his mom Emily when he was younger, but stopped after she died.
I feel like Hazel never really had the luxury to learn a musical instrument properly. But I feel like she’s one of those people who had a great music sense. Like, she can really only help out with percussions, but she’d randomly have a perfect pitch or something like that.
I know drums is probably the safe and more character fitting for Leo, but I really can’t get the image of Leo playing saxophone out of my head. I don’t know, it’s something about Leo plus one of the most sexy instruments out there that just vibes with me.
He was a rich, Italian boy born in the 30s, he gives me strong classical piano vibes. Kid had a diplomat for a grandfather so he was probably relatively rich. I dunno, I’m just imagining Maria playing on a beautiful grand piano with little Bianca and Nico, and it just feels right.
I’d like to stick to fanon here. I’d like to think that despite having a successful musician for a mother, the God of Music for a father, this boy has -3 musical abilities. Lee used to give him the maracas because you cannot screw up the maracas.
Lee Fletcher excelled at any instrument after learning it for 3 months. That was actually how he got a full ride to NYU (if they had those). Although unfortunately NYU never got to have him because he was supposed to go after the summer of the Battle of the Labyrinth.

One of the distinct problems with all of the RR books except PJO is the lack of fatal flaws. The whole point of fatal flaws in the first series was that characters had personal problems. The characters weren't always good people motivated by the right reasons— and that never changed. Making a character's flaw something like "insecurity" and then manufacturing an arc where they get over that insecurity leads to a character with no defining negative traits— someone without substantial flaws.

I feel like percabeth’s true dynamic at its core is Percy giving wildly dangerous ideas and Annabeth being his enabler by figuring out how to make them work - or vice versa in which Annabeth needs this one thing for her idea and Percy just casually does some wild shit to make it happen.
And honestly? It is Grover who is the voice of reason and if he had been more present during the HOO series then half the bullshit that went down wouldn't have even happened. This is my truest belief, thank you for listening.

Apologies on it being so late..but, Chapter Five: That which makes us Human, of Gods at the Dawning of the World, is now up!
Let me know what you lovely folk think!
So I was wondering if you could add onto the gods reacting to their kids mortal illnesses. I’m just like imagining the gods reacting to girls times or soemthing like that
So, it just occurred to me that with illnesses, they sorta have a legit reason not to know: Apollo.
After all, he’s the god of medicine, right? His arrows have been known to be plagues and his tempers often decide who succumbs to illness. So if a mortal falls ill... It’s Apollo. Obviously.
I like to think the reveal came about after Nico got sick. Hades is PISSED because “I THOUGHT YOU LIKED MY SON?? WHY DID YOU DO THIS TO HIM??” and Apollo is like “you know, sometimes my powers are whack and people get sick and I swear it isn't me. Maybe some Egyptian god got him.”
And it leads to this whole argument where poor Nico ends up getting brought into the middle alongside a Will who had planned on giving him some medicine and watching Star Wars with him all day so both are kinda moody.
Will: What?? My dad didn't do this!
Hades: THEN WHO DID?!
Will: Nico, probably. He should have worn a coat like I suggested. But nooooo apparently his tough Italian blood could handle a bit of cold-
Hades: You did this over a COAT?!
Apollo: I DIDNT DO ANYTHING
Will: oh no...you guys don't know about germs?
Aphrodite: Wait. I might be on Apollo’s side. What kind of coat?
Hermes: A germ coat, apparently.
Will: You guys gotta just go to mortal school or something. We can't keep doing this.
Of course, the idea people could just... Get sick without any godly intervention is terrifying to hear. Apollo had sorta known to an extent bc he can touch people and understand vitamin levels, etc... but he just kind assumed everything was stable unless some divine force intervened... and these tiny little ‘germs’ were not divine forces as far as he was aware.
...or were they?

So like Percy is very strong
He was able to hold both him and Annabeth's weight with ONE arm for at least 3 minutes while hanging from the cliff at the end of MOA
I mean like sure adrenaline but still he is strong

Will, talking about Nico: One time he couldn’t decide whether he wanted to call me ‘pretty boy’ or ‘baby genius’ and he ended up blurting out ‘pretty baby’
Nico, embarrassed: ShutupShutupShutupShutup-

cloudy with a chance of cuddles
“Oh I see,” Will says, teasing smile on his face, “you make me walk all this way, and then you won’t even let me cuddle you?”
He walks closer to the coach, his hair still dripping wet.
Nico’s eyes widen. “Will. No.”
for @solangeloweek 2021 day 1: rainy days
read on ao3
“Hey, are you nearby?”
Nico speaks into his phone, watching the rain patter against his window. The sound is on the right side of loud, creating a calming white noise. He’s wrapped in a blanket, feet nestled into the arm of his couch.
Will’s voice comes back, slightly tinny. “Yeah, I’m almost there. You really are making me walk in the rain for you, aren’t you?”
Nico scoffs, “I recall someone inviting himself over, this is absolutely not my fault.”
Will laughs. Nico can picture it in his head. There’s a moment of silence, except Nico can hear the rain on Will’s side of the line too.

Nico, handing Dionysus a card: Here you go
Mr. D: What’s this?
Nico: It’s a father’s day card. I know you’re not really my father, but...
Nico: Why are you crying??

Headcanon that while Annabeth was in Boston doing family tingz✨ she told Percy to start looking at apartments in New Rome for them when they can live off campus and she ends up having weird dreams about the apartments he’ll show her
Like one has mattresses for floors and another has like a thousand chandeliers and he keeps hitting his head with a goofy smile on his face
