To make something that is already bad worse:
Elliot was trying top exacerbate the situation by raising his voice

(of something that is to your advantage) not planned, happening by chance:
The timing of my friends early death was very fortuitous because I was starting to catch feelings for his girlfriend

(of a person) unwilling to obey orders or to do what should be done, or (of an animal) refusing to be controlled:
Mar is failing classes because he’s recalcitrant during classes.

very bad and shocking:
Murder is a heinous crime

something that will slove all problems:
running is not a panacea for all your problems. You have to face them head on

my two pieces of advice for Percy is:
try not to die. This seems very easy to think of which it is but it pretty relevant. probably because of the fact that he is most likely a very important in this cannon universe that’s probably why the story is about him, and the reasons shown to prove he’s in danger is the dog trying to kill him, the minotaur, and the fact that he’s Posidons son so he is very likely to be attacked.

my other piece of advice is try to make friends. this is because ohs very isolated from people because he’s posidons son so people avoid him and its scientifically proven that loneliness shortens your life span
