NEW PERCY JACKSON NEWS FROM RICK RIORDAN!!!(copying this from my journal because everyone needs to know!!)NEW PERCY JACKSON NEWS FROM RICK RIORDAN!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
OMG uncle rick confirmed that he wrote a kane and percy crossover!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO EXCITED!!!! :iconcryingrainbowsplz:
So, yes, it's true. As announced today in Publisher's Weekly Children's Bookshelf, I have written a crossover story featuring Carter Kane and Percy Jackson. The story is called "The Son of Sobek."
This is something fans have been asking me to do for years, but why this story and why now? My publisher Disney-Hyperion was looking for something fun to add to the paperback version of The Serpent's Shadow, which comes out May 7 -- something to encourage folks who haven't yet tried the Kane Chronicles to pick up the series. I decided what the heck. Let's throw Carter and Percy together in a Greek-Egyptian dilemma and see what happens. The result was SO much fun to write.
If you buy the paperback version of Serpent's Shadow on May 7, "The Son of Sobek" will be at the end of the book, no extra charge.

2. When she's nervous, she tucks a small curl behind her ear
3. She wore a black camo tank top during the entire battle of tLO
4. She has worn makeup twice during the original series... Did you notice when?
5. She's cried five times in front of Percy before they were a couple, can you name all the times?

Jupiter saved Earth from a meteor.
Jupiter was the name of a Roman god.
That same Roman god was called Zues in Greek Mythology.
Zues was the head god.
ZUES SAVED EARTH FROM DISASTER.

A Skewed Perception of Modern Beautyokay, so I feel like I need to do a body image/ media rant right now, especially since I just got back home from shopping and it's depressed me a lot.A Skewed Perception of Modern Beauty2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm just so fucking sick of the media forcing girls to compare themselves to each other. Honestly, I am. This is coming from a girl who has struggled with weight and severe self esteem issues since 4th grade. Ever since I hit puberty, I've had radios and TV's and magazines telling me that I'm not pretty enough. After eight years of this, it really wears you down. It's gotten to a point where I can't even go shopping without just sitting in the changing room and crying my eyes out because I have to settle for everything.
I'm 5'5", I have natural curves, and I weigh around 150 lbs. The doctor says I'm at a healthy weight: not really overweight and not underweight. But how can I feel healthy when every image I see on billboards and adverts and movies and tabloids tells me that I'm fat and that I need to be "fixed", when, in real
Maybe it was the wind - Leo x ReynaThe wind was a bit strong that spring day. If Reyna could, it would continue so, the weather was cool and pleasant, and she held a pink card in her hands. Farther away could see Jason, with his back to the girl, who was sitting on a bench in the little square. She thought of handing that paper on which was written 'From: Reyna To: Jason' and wish him a happy Valentine's Day.Maybe it was the wind - Leo x Reyna2 years ago in Personal More Like This
To be honest, the praetor regretted having bought that card because two seconds later she saw the son of Jupiter accompanied by an girl extremely beautiful, which made her ashamed of her own appearance. Overall, Reyna would never shoot herself down for something like that, but seeing there she felt as fragile as that piece of paper.
Without realizing it, a gust of air took the card for a few meters, and she laid aside, lowering her head and keeping her suffering to herself.
Leo bent down and picked up that pink paper lying on the ground near where Reyna was seated and quiet. He admired her delicate c

"It looks like we have a survivor. How are you feeling?"
Turning my head, I saw a white coat, and as my eyes drifted up, there was a stethoscope, assorted pens stuffed inside a pocket, a clean-shaven chin and grey eyes. I opened my mouth, but closed it again, because my tongue was dry and I really didn't feel like talking to anyone. Honestly, I was awful at dying. Everything was trying to do me in, even myself, but I just wouldn't.
And then shame filled me when what I had done truly sunk in:
I could have died.
I wiggled my fingers—I was alive.
"How am I feeling?" I rasped as my old temper was aroused by the absurdity of the doctor's question. "I feel fine. Absolutely goddamn dandy. N

What do you guys think?
got an email from Penguin Publishers!...and I just gave them information about the book. Guys, this whole publication dream might actually come true! Thank you so, so much to all of you who have stuck with me from the beginning, and to all of you who have just started following me. I love and adore every single one of you and will make sure you each get a copy of Paper Stars if it gets published, because you're the reason I've made it this far. I can't even begin to explain how much support you all have given me when I've felt useless or untalented or insignificant: you, my watchers, my friends, have been with me and believed in me even when I'm at my lowest, and I cannot put to words the extent of my gratitude. From commenting on every single one of my pieces to simply clicking the "watch" or "favorite" button, you have given me the confidence and drive to pursue my dreams despite my anxiety and fear, and I could never ask for anything more wonderful.

Who's Benjamin? I think. That's an excellent question.
Benjamin. A boy who paints what he wants to see. A dreamer. A friend. A warm summer night on the rooftop, a hot air balloon, a sea of whispering grass backlit by a kerosene lamp and the fireflies that flickered like sparks from a bottle-rocket. A match-giver, a soft-spoken superhero, a tear-choked goodbye in the shadow of the stars. A boy who was, and will forever remain seventeen years old, who died to make his bird fly once more.
But what happened to you, Benjamin Thomas? What happened to my poor, sweet boy? What could you have done to deserve the darkness that befell you despite all of your hopeless, misguided kindness? Could it be that you were born into a world that was just not ready?
You lived your life before its time—a life meant for the pages of a beautiful book, had your story only been written! You could have been a poem, an epic: lyrical, grand,

Percabethers, can we talk?I try to diplomatic. I live by the straight-forward motto of "ship and let ship" and have never out-right hated on anyone for shipping Percabeth or any other pairing within the Percy Jackson series and it's sequel series. As far as I'm concerned, people will ship as they wish and I'm not going to say that you can't ship a pairing just because I don't.Percabethers, can we talk?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
All I ask of you is that you offer me the same courtesy.
Yes, I understand that Percabeth is canon. Yes, I understand that they will probably live happily ever after because they are the main ship in the fandom. I am fine with that. I understand that the majority of the fans ship Percabeth and I'm part of a minority that doesn't. I don't mind the pairing in canon and, most of the time, I can just skip over or ignore the fandom's enthusiasm for the pairing.
What I can't ignore is how many Percabeth shippers are rude and bully anyone who ships differently. Hence the purpose of this journal.

Piper McSue: The RebuttleSo...I'm getting kind of fed up with people calling Piper McLean from the Heroes of Olympus series a Mary Sue, because she isn't.Piper McSue: The Rebuttle2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is my rebuttle against a comic strip that inspired this. I will take each point it offers one by one and argue against it. Please note that both this rebuttle and the comic are based on opinion.
"...Even though I'm the new token daughter of the fabulous Aphrodite, I hate pretty people-"
Wait, what? Piper hates pretty people?! Then why the heck does she like Annabeth?! Annabeth is pretty. Jason? Jason is described as 'handsome' by Piper herself, and she's sporting a major crush on the dude!
Besides, she kind of has a reason to not like overly-attractive people. Drew, who is described as very pretty, called her Dumpster Queen. Not a nice name. She's been called "half-blood" and made fun of because she's half-Cherokee all her life by popular kids at her school. Popular kids are ususally - you guessed it - pretty.

Why I dislike The Fault in Our StarsSo, I’ve been getting a lot of asks over the last few months asking why I strongly dislike TFIOS by John Green as much as I do. And for the most part, all the recent askers have been surprisingly polite, considering the more aggressive ones I’ve received in the past on the subject. Anyway, I’ve answered a bunch of them separately, but I’ve decided to condense all of my theories, opinions and arguments into one succinct post.Why I dislike The Fault in Our Stars7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now, I'll be blunt about my feelings on the book by copying and pasting my response to a recent ask upon the nature of my dislike.
“The story is incredibly formulaic and unrealistic, the dialogue is pretentious and stilted, cancer is romanticized and I fucking hate that arrogant ass Augustus waters with a burning passion. I liked Hazel and Isaac all right, and I guess his writing is good, but the cardboard cut-out nature of all the other characters and the complete lack of realism heap

He was a goofy looking nerd guy who made science fun for me, even if I already loved it to death (I actually wanted to be a scientist when I was younger XD ). Seriously, the guy would make a kid's WHOLE DAY just because they watched one of his episodes in science class that day.
