There are so many posts going around comparing Percy, Nico, and Jason, trying to decide who’s the strongest of the Big Three kids (I personally don’t think of any one of them being the strongest, but each having different strengths) and yet no one ever mentions Hazel and Thalia. They’re Big…
Sorry, but Hazel is not a Big Three child, not technically. First, the Romans didn’t have the concept of Big Three gods like the Greeks, and second, Pluto wasn’t a very important god for them. There’s no way Hazel could be more powerful than Jason, Percy or Nico. Just no.
Now, Thalia is a different story. Yes, she’s extremely powerful and could kick everyone’s butts.
G.K. Chesterton, Autobiography, 1936
One of my most favorite quotes.(via wearingsonglasses)
Seriously though, WHY isn’t Nico di Angelo one of the seven demigods of the prophecy in Heroes of Olympus??
I mean, no offense, but I’d much rather read from the POV of mysterious Nico than from perfect Jason, sweet Piper or good old boring Frank. Yep, I said it, I think Frank is boring. I had to skip his chapters while reading the Son of Neptune, because I found them utterly uninteresting.
Nico’s a total badass and according to Hazel, he’s more powerful than Jason. He should’ve been one of the seven.
Some people have been reading way too much Hilary Mantel for fuck’s sake.
Yes, that pretty much sucks. People should really learn the difference between a novel and real history book.
