"Just don’t -don’t freak out."
the “token queer character” trope is hilarious to me because how many queer people do you know who willingly surround themselves with cis straight friends I mean really

"Darkness. That’s the first thing I remember. It was dark, and it was cold. And I was scared. But then…then I saw the moon. It was so big and it was so bright, and it seemed to chase the darkness away. And when it did…I wasn’t scared anymore.”

last night i had a dream that like half the people i know got pixie cuts and trust me you all looked cute
haha I guess when I say everybody I mean the majority of people in the fandom. At least that’s what it feels like to me.
It seems like he’s always portrayed as so happy-go-lucky and energetic by fans whereas in the books he’s moody and bitterly sarcastic and just all around in a foul mood a lot of the time. He complains often in his head and tends to dramatize situations, which are funny to us but clearly being mocked by Percy in this sense. Not that Percy is always miserable I guess because he definitely has his happy moments where he smiles and laughs, but its not that much and there aren’t that many and the older he gets, the more those are dwindling off because he’s taking his life more seriously and realizing just how much he’s sick of the demigod lifestyle. Even at a young age though, right off the bat, Percy straight up tells you he dislikes being a demigod and, “Am I a troubled kid? Yeah, you could say that,” so…obviously brooding is just a part of his personality. I think he even says in TLT that one of the reasons his mom thinks he looks so much like his Dad is because Percy has that naturally brooding look to his face that Poseidon shares.
I don’t know, everybody interprets characters differently I guess, but it seems pretty obvious to me that even though Percy is hopeful, he’s also pretty darn miserable a lot of the time.
Most of his inner dialogue is him making sarcastic comments about all of the crazy fucked up shit that happens to him. It’s a defense mechanism. He honestly doesn’t think nor even know that he’s being funny most of the time. If you notice, most if not all of his little comments are in his head.
The other characters don’t think he’s laugh out loud funny (like Leo). A little humorous and goofy sometimes, but he doesn’t have the other characters doubled over in laughter.
Example: The dam joke.
Initially Thalia was the one who made the comment. She and GROVER go off on a tangent alternating making the jokes. Percy stands off to the side and LAUGHS
He does not say A WORD.
He just doesn’t make jokes guys. He honestly isn’t the hilarious sass master he’s made out to be. He’s pretty quiet and goofy.
I couldn’t agree more. Honestly Percy doesn’t even talk that much and when he does so he’s not that loud about it. Annabeth talks more than he does and is much louder when she does so, which is why Percy is so amused that Annabeth wants to be an architect, because he can’t imagine her sitting still and quiet all day sketching buildings.
Percy’s the kind of guy that has his hands in his pockets and a shy smirk on his face, like he’s trying not to laugh but is silently anyway.
