Man, if you think about it 13-year-old Percy was a total nincompoop who got himself turned into a guinea pig while 13-year-old Hazel is a badass witch.
Like, Hazel is definitely going to be the strongest demigod ever.
The xkit guy could cure cancer and he’d be like “I’m sorry this took so long I’ve been so busy please forgive me.”
Chapter 15, Nico’s POV:
"She said we so easily, as if she and Percy were interchangeable, inseparable.
Nico had once read a story from Plato, who claimed that in the ancient times, all humans had been a combination of male and female. Each person had two heads, four arms, four legs. Supposedly, these combo humans had been so powerful they made the gods uneasy, so Zeus split them in half - man and woman. Ever since, humans had felt incomplete. They spent their lives searching for their other halves.”
Chapter 42, Piper’s POV:
"So this where the rivalry started," Percy said.
Percy pulled Annabeth close and kissed her… long enough for it to get really awkward for Piper, though she said nothing. She thought about the old rule of Aphrodite’s cabin: that to be recognized as a daughter of the love goddess, you had to break someone;s heart. Piper had long ago decided o change that rule. Percy and Annabeth were a perfect example of why. You should have to make someone’s heart whole. That was a much better test.
When Percy pulled away, Annabeth looked like a fish gasping for air.
"The rivalry ends here," Percy said. "I love you, Wise Girl."
i am just very uncomfortable with the way i am perceived like there’s a disconnect between my actual identity and the identity ppl assume i have and it makes me uncomfortable and stressed out
