Title: Eye Of The Beholder
Summary: In Nico's opinion, Rachel Dare owns the ugliest chair in the universe. But he supposes it's not all that bad.
Notes: For aimmyarrowshigh who deserves all the fluff and fic today.
Title: Eye Of The Beholder
Title: From Where You Are
Spoilers: For Son of Neptune.
Summary: Percy deals with the unexpected aftermath of the Argos II's landing.
Notes: This the alternative ending to All Roads Lead to Rome aka what will actually happen in Mark of Athena because RSquared is a troll and he is going to milk this as hard as possible.
Me, bitter, what? Title comes from the Lifehouse song From Where You Are which I'm astounded has not ended up on a pre/post-SoN fanmix that I've seen.

I tried to be as accurate as possible, but there's probably a 1-2 year error on anything that isn't specifically stated with a year date in canon which wasn't much, to tell you the truth. I based most of the PJO events on Percy's birthday since it was one of the few dates we actually had in canon and to get his year date, I subtracted 16 from the year The Last Olympian was published (2009) to get his birthdate at August 18, 1993. Everything else was based largely on what was found in canon, but some of that is still contradictory and up to interpretation.
Feel free to ask questions about how I decided on certain dates or argue with me about stuff on the timeline. I love to nerd out about this stuff. I'll probably update the timeline as more information comes out.

And that's preeeeeeeetty much what I've been doing all weekend long when not otherwise occupied. About halfway through season two, so I should finish up by the end of the week and I'll probably go find them online to marathon even though I hate watching TV on my computer.
Anyway, Elena/Stefan can go die in a hole, seriously. I haven't been this annoyed with an 'OUR LOVE IS SO TRAGIC AND DOOMED" TV couple since Max/Liz from Roswell. We get it, none of the writers want you together but you just wuv each other so much, blegh. So yeah, less Elena/Stefan wangst and more Damon and all the other super awesome characters on the show plzkthx. I JUST LOVE DAMON AND ALL HIS EVIL, BLACK HEARTED KICKED PUPPY WAYS, OKAY. Team Damon Is Awesome Forever and Ever.

Summary: If Rick Riordan had written
Author’s notes: So, funny thing. I wrote this as an, “Eff you and your cliffhangers, Riordan,” fic...
( ’Oh, sure, just fine,’ Will Solace said. 'Just nearly got impaled, no biggie. Good thing I've got abs of steel.’ )
There are also minor spoilers floating around on tumblr and the Camp Half-Blood wiki, so beware! Unless you're weak willed at the last minute like me, then it's all fun and games.
I'll be turning comment notification off on this post sometime tonight. If you have the book already, please wait until tomorrow to post comments with spoilers and if you are posting spoilers, please warn as much as possible.
eta: If you have a Kindle, copies of SoN are downloading early.

( Thoughts on the books )
Currently reading: I'll probably start White Cat by Holly Black today, and then move on to Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver.
Up next: THE SON OF NEPTUNE.
Books I need to acquire: I told myself I wouldn't buy any new books (aside from SoN) until I made a considerable dent in my to-read pile, and so now I have a giant list of recently released books I want. Goliath by Scott Westerfeld, Bright Days by Anna Godberson, The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson, Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and Wildwood by Colin Meloy.
I'm trying to read 100 books this year, and I've got less than three months to go through 40! Wish me luck.
Oh, who am I kidding, waiting for this book to come out has been totally and completely painful. And we've still got one more week to go!
I've decided to compile a list of things we do know that's going to happen in the Son of Neptune, plus links to the new character profiles if you haven't seen them already, and then my BIG LONG WISH LIST of things that I want to happen in this book and/or questions I want answered.
This probably won't be the last post on SoN I'll have before the book comes out. Riordan will probably drop another, "Nico isn't going to be in this book, haha suckers!" bomb three days before it's released like he did last year, thus ensuring my eternal wrath and his place among the most trolly of authors ever. But if you feel the urge the make last-minute gif spams, drop some new news tidbits, or share your own theories, definitely make use of this post!
( i. What we know so far )
( ii. The characters )
( iii. Theories/Speculation/What I Want Answered, Dammit )
Since I'm a Grown Up now and have a job, I probably won't get to read SoN as fast or immediately as some other people. I'll probably have a discussion post going up at some other point as Oct. 4 draws closer and if you're going to comment or squee on that, please be respectful about spoilers. I had several people last year commenting with spoilers after I specifically asked for people not to, and it was totally annoying.
But until then, have fun and speculate away!
Summary: Annabeth always picks the worst movies for the two of them to watch together.
