flying into enemy camp on a war ship. No biggie. Athena always has a plan. We’re fi–statue explodes onto deck.
ohaidere Percy. Long time no see!
Percy smells of ocean air. His lips were salty.
Percy: “Gods, I never thought–”
Finally getting chummy with Romans. Someone blows craters in camp Jupiter.
I can’t seem to embed the gif set into my blog properly. I’ll try to fix that later.
I just read the book today, and by the end of the book I was mentally crying. Rick, the ending was cruel. Right in the feels. Too much to take. I won’t give away any spoilers though.
Making this gif set was annoying. The website wasn’t working well with my computer. It’s like they had some kind of rivalry, like the Greeks and the Romans. Eventually, after many tedious hours spent on previously failed gif sets, I succeeded. Yet I can’t get it into my blog. Also for some reason, I had too many panels so I shortened down my original plan. I’m pretty satisfied with how it turned out though, it’s better than I expected from me!
I chose to do a gif set for the exposition for several reasons: first, this book isn’t that serious, being narrated by 4 ADHD demigods (some with short attention spans), so I thought “why not?” and did a gif set. gifs are pretty entertaining, and hold your attention. Also, I wanted to try this out. I liked the first few chapters. The Percabeth (Percy+Annabeth) reunion, the camp being blown up (not really), and other stuff were interesting and drew me back into the world of Greek and Roman deities, Demigods, and dangerous quests. That’s already one and a half spoilers.
I thought the first few chapters were cute. No biggie. I love Percabeth.
If you don’t want to see spoilers for The Mark Of Athena by Rick Riordan,
STOP READING NOW.
Unless you can’t help it. But you have been warned.
The exposition of The Mark Of Athena is not that sappy. Honestly, it isn’t really sappy at all. Jason, the former praetor of Camp Jupiter, introduces his new friends to his old friends and Percy, new praetor of Camp Jupiter, reunites with his old friends (and gets judo-flipped in the process)
Annabeth grabbed his wrist and flipped him over her shoulder. He slammed into the stone pavement.
“If you ever leave me again,” she said, her eyes stinging, “I swear to all the gods–” Percy had the nerve to laugh. Suddenly the lump of heated emotions melted inside Annabeth.
“And this is Annabeth,” Jason said. “Uh, normally she doesn’t judo-flip people.”
That was cute. I love Rick Riordan’s writing.
