I just don’t get OT3’s … I mean, I guess I’m kind of a prude, but I don’t really have a problem with threesomes, in theory, it’s just that I don’t understand two people being truly in love with one another, but willing to share themselves and each other with a third person in that most intimate way …

With Percy and Annabeth, for example, and all the people that put them in an OT3 with Nico. We know from canon that Annabeth has been jealous in the past, and whilst she’s very comfortable in her relationship with Percy now, I still don’t see her sharing him in the sack. Not to mention Annabeth herself has said she feels “no attraction to Nico”, referred to him as “moody” and spoke of the “darkness” in him. And that’s completely besides the obvious fact that Percy is straight, and I doubt he’d want to share Annabeth either.

I mean, I know people like what they like, and they ship slash, and characters that are actually pretty gross (hello Snape/Hermione), and the ships don’t necessarily have to have anything to do with canon. I don’t mean to sound judgemental, truly. I guess it’s just never made sense to me, when you truly love a pairing, why you’d want a third person involved in that relationship …

Here’s the unveiled cover image for our graphic novel adaptation of Rick Riordan’s Heroes Of Olympus: The Lost Hero (written by Robert Venditti, drawn by me, and colored by Orpheus Collar). The full image is a wraparound gatefold, and the hardcover edition will feature the full artwork!
The Lost Hero will be released on October 7th by Hyperion Books, and will debut at New York Comic Con the following weekend. See you there!



Super psyched about this, that Heroes of Olympus is being made into graphic novels (seeing as we almost definitely won’t get a film/TV series) but … what about Battle of the Labyrinth and Last Olympian? I hope they’re still planning on releasing them too …

Always remember that women who call themselves feminists will be accused so many times of being man-haters, but when a man kills women just for being women, he is called mentally unwell, and a madman rather than a woman-hater or misogynist. 

For the record, Elliot Rodger was mentally ill, and his hatred of women was a symptom of that, not the cause. So why it’s even being mentioned in this context, I have no clue.

and we’ll experience it all in our fictional worlds until, one day, we can experience it all on our own.

New description of “Blood of Olympus” found on Amazon.com, BookDepository.com etc:

"Though the Greek and Roman crewmembers of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen-all of them-and they’re stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood-the blood of Olympus-in order to wake.

The demigods are having more frequent visions of a terrible battle at Camp Half-Blood. The Roman legion from Camp Jupiter, led by Octavian, is almost within striking distance. Though it is tempting to take the Athena Parthenos to Athens to use as a secret weapon, the friends know that the huge statue belongs back on Long Island, where it might be able to stop a war between the two camps.

The Athena Parthenos will go west; the Argo II will go east. The gods, still suffering from multiple personality disorder, are useless. How can a handful of young demigods hope to persevere against Gaea’s army of powerful giants? As dangerous as it is to head to Athens, they have no other option. They have sacrificed too much already. And if Gaea wakes, it is game over.”
