#percy jackon and the olympians


love me some ancient Greek philosophy, so this happened


“He who is not contented with what he has would not be contented with what he would like to have.” (Socrates)

“The unexamined life is not worth living to a human.” (Plato)

“There is no great genius without a mixture of madness.” (Aristotle)

“The hottest love has the coldest end.” (Socrates)

“Love is a serious mental disease.” (Plato)

“Quality is not an act, it is a habit.” (Aristotle)

I felt bad for not including Rachel in the last one because I love her character, so I made sure to put her in this one

Walker Scobell as a Percy is a God’s gift

an age appropriate actor for Percy Jackson who else cheered


So Percy is definitely in like All the government databases.

I like to think the real reason that he and Sally faced like zero legal consequences for anything in TLT (Gabe, the Arch)—or, frankly, from any of Percy’s school mishaps and destruction of property—is that Poseidon managed to register Sally and Percy under some sort of confusing diplomatic immunity.

I mean, Poseidon is the literal king of all the oceans. I feel like his family should get a little diplomatic immunity. He’s been on-board with making both of them immortal. Legal protection just seems to fit that vibe.

I can imagine Percy’s file showing up during The Arch incident and some agent being like

Agent J: Wait a minute. Prosecuting this kid might get messy.

Agent S: What? He just committed an act of terrorism, Bill.

Agent J: Yeah, but here he’s listed as qualifying for— what isthis?diplomatic immunity? This is crazy. Do you know who his dad is?

Agent S: No. Why?

Agent J: Neither do I. I can’t find it in the paperwork.

Honestly the real reason they’re never prosecuted has less to do with the status and more to do with the fact that the paperwork is So Confusing. Basically everything is redacted by the Mist and no one can figure out where any of the paperwork came from. —Teams of people getting headaches from reading over the paper trail for too long and experiencing bouts of temporary amnesia where they can’t remember what they were looking at and why —Agents determined to stay late at work only to get home and realize that they’ve left the office and can’t remember looking over the files

There’s a whole office of agents and a legal team that have dedicated themselves to working their way around the problem so that something like this Never Happens Again with their paperwork. They’ll draw straws to see who gets to pour over the paperwork today. They try taking notes but they all turn out as gibberish and foreign letters. They have a tally keeping track of how many times Steve drives home during lunch or Nancy ends up with a migraine or Emmy finds herself napping on the office couch, or how many legal documents Greg has accidentally shredded right after he filled them out.

Their office has garnered so much attention that it’s become a government-funded psych experiment. The national defense office wants to get its hands on whatever crazy voodoo they’re using to cover up the Jackson history.

There’s also a betting pool going on about what makes this kid so important and who wants to keep him off the radar.

Let’s not even start on the foreign agencies that get involved after the Giant War.

They all learned pretty quickly that technology wasn’t going to help them. Any footage they get of Percy Jackson winds up scrambled and confusing. So the best solution is resorting back to grass-root methods:

Field agents.

Sadie: Guys, I think we’re being followed.

Percy: *grabbing for his pocket* What?

Annabeth: Oh, I see what you’re looking it. No it’s alright. Weapon down, Percy. It’s the NSA.

Percy: Todd? *his eyes scan the crowd*

Annabeth: Yeah

Percy: *waves at a man in a baseball cap who freezes and ducks behind a kiosk in the mall*

Percy: It’s ok. It’s just Todd.

Sadie: Ok. Hold up. You have an NSA agent?

Sadie: Don’t they usually use phones or something?

Annabeth: Percy doesn’t have a phone

Percy: Too much bad demigod juju

Percy: I thought Todd was FBI

Annabeth: No, Seaweed Brain. FBI checks in on alternating Thursdays

Percy: Right

Annabeth: *to Sadie* FBI are the worst, honestly. I feel like we spend all day saving their asses.

Percy: Remember Vince? And the corn dog incident?

Sadie: I mean that doesn’t sound too bad.

Annabeth: There were empousai. Venom, right in the corn dogs. I’ve never seen a mortal drop that fast.

Percy: Or Elise and the subway scramble

Annabeth: That mishap with Randy on the 58th floor

Percy: *Looking back at Todd* You know, I miss Jamie.

Annabeth: Yeah, Jamie was nice.

Sadie: What happened to Jamie?

Annabeth: Oh, no. Nothing like that. They took her off the case.

Percy: She was too friendly.

Annabeth: She always waved back.

Sadie: … Right. And why are they following you again?

Percy: Annabeth has a theory.

Annabeth: We think it has something to do with Percy’s stint as a domestic terrorist.

Sadie: A wat now?

Percy: I blew up an arch.


This morning my mum, who’s very fond of Walker Scobell, came to me and was like, “What is Percy Jackson about, and will it be the career changing role for that kid in The Adam Project?” So I gave her a long-ass brief but detailed summary of it. Unaware that my dad was listening. Why is that an important point to mention? Well, it’s because when my mum asked me who I’d like to play the Big Three, my dad came barging in and yelled out: “Chris Hemsworth for Zeus, Henry Cavill for Poseidon, and Ben Barnes for Hades”.

Judging from how he practically vibrated in excitement when he gave his suggestion, he’d definitely spent a lot of time thinking about this

MMM! These are good!! Especially Henry and Ben.

My brothers also had suggestions today. Aside from Logan and Ryan Reynolds, we got Oscar Isaacs and… lol it’s too late at night for me to remember rn but I’ll add later.

The fact that Percy Jackson is trending at #1

It’s time for my inner obsession of yore to rise back to the front. I dont own all the books, don’t have multiple shirts, didn’t make my own beaded necklace, didn’t bake chocolate cupcakes with blue frosting that I gave to all my friends for years, didn’t throw an entire CHB LARP, for nothing.

My time has come.

We have our Percy.


walker scobell is so funny and he has the nicest voice and yall are still saying he won’t make a good percy



nah dude this song is so unnecessary good like wtf is this shit it has me tearing up
