Anonymous said: IF Percy Jackson was the Roman kid, do you think he'd go the same way as Jason?
Wonderful question anon like superb question asking this is truly a fantastic question
(Seriously dude I’m not being sarcastic this question made me think like really really think)
If Percy was the Roman kid I don’t think he would go the same way as Jason let me count the ways:
- Percy’s loyalty is a very big part of him as an individual character.
- The purpose of Percy’s story meaning the first book of the PJO series TLT was first centered about how this kid that barely belonged anywhere finally finds a way to belong
- With that in mind the whole Percy being a roman kid would only make his allegiance to the Roman camp
- We’ve seen time and time again that CHB was a place he really considered as home so I think the home part is really where he is at his most important. A place where he first felt like he actually belonged in my opinion is the place he would stay.
About the Jason thing I mentioned. I’m not saying Jason isn’t loyal because he is but this is a different situation of choosing camps than Percy.
What ways? some of you might say thinking I meant offense well my little Jason lover let me explain. Jason’s loyalty is like Percy that he goes to the ones who make him feel like he belongs and it just so happens that he felt more like that with the greek camp. But it differs because his identification with the camp is much more personality wise so he identifies himself as a Praetor of the ROMAN Legion but Percy is just head of the Poseidon Cabin. Even if they just said Poseidon it doesn’t equate as immediately as saying ROMAN.
Moreover it was a bigger deal in the Roman camp to be Roman than in the Greek camp to be Greek.
Percy’s specific situation doesn’t show the whole “which camp which camp shall I go to” dilemma because his home really is with CHB or with the people his with which in this if he was the roman kid probably people he grew up with which will make his bond stronger with the Roman kids.
TL;DR: But really I think if Percy was the Roman kid he’d stay with the Roman people and just tell Annabeth they could do the long distance thing.
I REALLY HOPE THIS MADE SENSE. Sorry if it didn’t. Gah if you were expecting a short answer I’m so so sorry!
have some sparkles!
see you next time anon!
