LOVE the Percy Jackson series {the damage it does to my feels leaves me physically impaired from time to time}. I post other book fandom junk too.

“This is Annabeth,” Jason said. “Uh, normally she doesn’t judo-flip people”.

Colored a Piper doodle from my sketch book bc she’s one of my faves and I’m trying to decide how I like drawing her face.



So this little cigarette right here has sparked a whole new brand of TFiOS hate, much of which is coming from people who claimed to love the book. 

Many people are now pointing out how “pretentious” Augustus is, and I can’t help but think, You’re only just now realizing this. He was written to be a seemingly pretentious and arrogant person. The acknowledgement of this is actually highly important because, without it, the book loses the message that a hero’s journey is that of strength to weakness

Augustus Waters has big dreams for himself. He wants to be known and remembered; he wants to be a hero; he wants to be seen as perfect. But there’s already something standing in his way… He has a disability, and society tells him that a person cannot be both perfect and disabled. So what does he do? He creates a persona for himself. He tries to appear older and wiser than he is. But the pretentious side of him is NOT who he truly is. It’s all an act. (This is evident in the fact that he often uses words in the wrong context.)

And when his cancer returns, we begin to see his mask cracking. The true Augustus begins to bleed through… Hazel even takes notice of this from time to time. And by the time we get to the gas station scene, Augustus is no longer the picture of perfection he was when we met him. The play has been canceled. The actor must reveal himself. And he’s revealed to be a weak, defenseless boy, succumbing to the cancer that is made of him. 

THE PRETENTIOUSNESS IS INTENTIONAL. It stands to show Augustus’s journey from flawless to flawed, from strong to weak. It’s the key to understanding that Augustus was the hero he always wanted to be, even if he didn’t realized it. 



The three different kinds of exam takers.


Hazel probably has a really strong 1940’s New Orleans accent

Jason and Annabeth and Piper probably have that adorable California accent

Frank probably says “eh” instead of “why” a lot

Leo’s probably got a very fast, Spanish accent

Percy probably talks very fast also and has the only Northern accent and everyone teases him about it



People criticizing TFIOS because Gus sounds pretentious???

that was the point???

like literally at his fake funeral his best friend talks about how fucking pretentious he is and how annoying it was???

It was one of his character flaws? He was deliberately written that way?

You’re not being clever or critical by pointing it out, you are literally stating a fact about the novel that the author deliberately wrote

deadskilletted: I saw your (i guess i'll call it a) animation of Viria's art of Nico and Jason and the slight movement make the picture that much more precious and brings it to life

Awww thankyouuuuu:3333
