for impertinentpunk’s AU Percy.

"How are we supposed to get out of this mess this time, Seaweed Brain?”
"Oh please. This wasn’t even my idea Wise Guy!”
In my head these two fight a lot more this way. Not sure why it just feels so right. mwahaha
percy x annabeth sketches part ii
You’ll never hate the Percy Jackson movies like Rick Riordan hates them
The worst part is being unable to design.
Everything else takes adjustment, but she manages it because she’s Annabeth Chase, and what other option does she have? She made it through Tartarus with her sight taken from her, she helped to defeat Gaea while blind; she can move and fight and command as well as she ever could. Not because she’s suddenly gained super-hearing or anything like that, but because she already knew a thousand cues other than sight to clue her in on where an enemy was, how to kill it. Without being able to see, she learned how to rely on them better, not how to hear someone cough from a mile away.
As for strategy, well. Her sight had been taken, not her brain.
But the rush wears off. The war ends, and Annabeth has to return to an existence that is more than running the razor edge between life and death. It’s hard to decide, whether it’s best that she’d been made blind in the middle of all that, when she would have had to start anew afterwards anyway, or if it’s worse because life is alien enough without being able to see any of it.
She can’t decide. She wishes she wasn’t blind at all. She feels bad, awful, the worst person in the world for wishing that, because she’s surrounded by the memories of dead teenagers. No one tells her she should be grateful to be alive, but she is anyway.
I wanted to draw Percabeth wielding the weapons associated with their Olympian parent so here it is. Percy with Poseidon’s trident and Annabeth with Athena’s Aegis. Medusa’s in there too. Sort of.
Jason’s infinitely more suited to be a teacher than Percy. He’d be a great teacher or principal or whatever. He’s patient, fair, and authoritative without being domineering. He’d get along great with kids of all ages, and could definitely handle parents and other authority figures in the ways Percy couldn’t.
Plus, he’s probably a fucking pro at paperwork. The Romans love them some paperwork and forms and plans. Jason has the best organizational skills of the seven, hands down.
I think Percy’s more likely to volunteer his time at Camp Half-Blood or the like during the summer as a counselor than pursue a career in teaching. As much as I think he’d enjoy teaching younger kids and want to fix what went wrong with his school experience, I again don’t think he’d do well with the rest of the job: lesson planning, dealing with parents and school administrators, grading papers, standardized testing, and the like.
His personality might not be all that suited for being a teacher either. Yeah, he’d be great for the kids he likes and wants to see succeed, but he’d also be that teacher with very obvious favorites and probably wouldn’t hold back much with the ones he didn’t like, particularly if he taught at the middle/high school level.
Volunteering at camp’s much more suitable for him. Less regulations, less time, and smaller groups of kids focusing on specialized subjects that he excels in. He’d have a lot more fun planning sword fighting challenges than writing up history tests.
So I was reading the Sea of Monsters graphic novel and came across this:
Like Percy actually had a picture of Annabeth on his locker and everything and Matt Sloan made fun of him saying that a hot girl will never date someone like Percy
4 years later
No big deal
Hey Sloan have you met my hot girlfriend Annabeth
You tore up her picture once so she’s here to kick your ass.
