I cringe whenever someone tries to make parallels between Percabeth with Ron/Hermione or Harry/Ginny.
Jaume Collett-Serra, or as The Mary Sue describes it, the “director of the cancelled white-washed live action Akira” who is “still trying to make [whitewashed] live action Akira.
But what if there had been a Hunger Games type scenario where Gaea just dropped a bunch of demigods into Tartarus
But, honestly, let’s take a minute to imagine this.
Percy—quick to succumb to the darkness and let it seep into his bones, to let it devour him and replace him. Quick to run, to strike, to kill. Quick to break. A problem more dangerous than all the monsters combined.
Annabeth, always by his side, sketching out maps on his forearm at night while they pretend to sleep. She holds the broken pieces of him in her hands and she knows it— she’s careful to mend them, to keep him with her as the scars cut deeper than just his skin. It’s Percy and Annabeth, the start-crossed lovers who steal the show.
Jason and Piper and Leo— a trio with one squeaky wheel. Late nights spent by the fire with tears rolling down Piper’s cheeks because she knows how bad the number three can be. Jason, slashing through anything that breathes near them, and Leo, his curly hair long, burning his way through Tartarus.
Big Frank with his arrows and Little Hazel with her stealth— climbing through the trees, first a little afraid to kill, then spearing monsters and grinning wide when the twang of Frank’s arrows hits home. They’re the underdogs of it all, barely limping along through each attack, but Gaea does not make the mistake of underestimating them when Frank grows into a lion and comes away from an attack with blood staining his teeth.
It’s a constant battle of greekandromanandmonsterandgreekromanmonster— until everything blends together and no one is sure which is which anymore. Surviving is the only thing that matters— and Gaea’s cold breath on their necks in the darkness doesn’t help the situation.
I think one of the reasons I ship Percabeth so hard is because I know one of them is probably going to die and I want to savor this time while they’re together while I can.
you little shit
Oh my God, are you kidding; I love Star Wars!
Nope, definitely not the only one though. I don’t even have the book yet but from what I’ve read and heard already it seems like Percy is letting his negative feelings get the best of him, drowning in his desperation and fear and anger. He wants to keep Annabeth safe at all costs and you’re right, that’s what drove Anakin to the dark side; he was scared of losing Padame (Padme? I don’t know how to spell her name) so he harnessed his bad feelings to try to save her and ultimately ended up being the one to end her life instead. Like all villains he didn’t see himself as doing anything bad because in his heart he was convinced his method was right, he saw himself as a hero.
Now I agree, I doubt that Percy would ever become a major villain in the series, but I think he will be/is sort of like an anti-hero right now who’s not exactly bad but is causing more trouble than helping, at least in comparison to Jason who is the ideal definition of a traditional, purely good leader who doesn’t let his emotions get in the way of his duties. I think…Percy’s going to make a mistake, a really big mistake, that’s going to have a lot of negative repercussions he’ll be forced to deal with, like failing to make that big sacrifice of his for instance. And then that mistake will be what forcibly snaps him out of whatever mindset he’s currently in and will drive him back to the “good side” I guess you could call it, but the guilt will forever weigh upon him and serve as a constant reminder of what he’d almost become and done.

That’s why Bart was so happy to see Wally when he was first introduced
He had never met him before
Because he didn’t exist in the future
Hello New 52, goodbye old DCU

Batfamily Reacts To Robin’s Shocking Death
i haven’t included tim’s because i honestly can’t with how awful it is. i’m 500% done with you dc :|
I finally pieced together what Damain has been doing in the sewers. We first see him in the sewers in Batman & Robin #9 searching for something in the sewers. At first, I thought he was looking for clues of his father’s whereabouts during the Court of Owls arc. I thought that was kind of sweet. But that hypothesis was proven incorrect when we see him in the sewers again in issue #13.
Then I saw issue #14 and I was so freaking confused where the hell he got that pearl from. Until I finally figured it out! I don’t know if anyone else figured it out before me, but it totally broke my heart when I realized it.
All that time searching and making a rat friend, he was looking for his grandmother’s lost pearls.
