"beauty is in the eye of the beholder/reader interpretations" is shorthand in this fandom for "this male character actually meets every one of the traits most commonly associated with attractive males in my mind and neither canon nor other fans will dissuade me from this image” and i find it odd that some will try so hard to maintain this facade of “reader freedom”, as if they stand to lose something important if in fact these male characters turn out to be truly average and unexceptional in appearance.
another alarming thing to note, is this same behavior is almost always seen as a grievous error if applied to female characters such as piper, who is constantly remarked towards as being “shallow” and “irritating” and “only concerned with appearances” when mentioning her boyfriend’s attractiveness.
furthermore, this type of ‘character interpretation’ can be grossly damaging when applied to people who like to use the “reader interpretation” excuse to white-washing characters such as hazel and piper and to strip frank of any fat he might’ve been carrying—magical makeover aside.
i suppose that what im trying to say here is that the people in this fandom are just as concerned with with appearances of their male favs as anyone else and the “well it’s their personality that i love” excuse just falls flatter and flatter as the days pass on.
and i mean, it’s perfectly alright to totally only dig a dude or dudette because you think they are hot.but please stop dodging around the issue like you have some deeper reason for it. because if you did indeed have any deeper reasons for it,
matters of physical appearance wouldn’t mean a damn to you now would they.
yes i understand that percy isnt perfect or a charmer and hes supposed to be an ordinary kid but if you try to argue the fact that he isn’t supposed to be hot i will have to refer you to the page where hazel mistakes him for a roman god
idk piper said he was an unimpressive sketchy skater-looking dude so.
one of these girls is right, yo, and it’s probably the one whose mother is the goddess of beauty, that’s all im sayin’.

Q:wAIT ARE YOU STILL TAKING PROMPTS? If so Pipalypso cuddles???
Calypso awakens from her slumber, perhaps because of the hands palming at her collarbone, warm and damp and only slightly calloused. Or perhaps the distant rumblings of thunder have stirred her from her rest, rolling over the ocean to beat at the sky above her tiny island, loud and angry.
Or more likely, it is the presence of another that has awakened her, drawing her into the conscious world with the smell of rain and the outside world. There’s a magic that lingers around this person whose disturbed her, trailing over hands and eyes and around their throat, in much the same way magic trails over Calypso, over her heart and around her ankle tethering her to the very stone beneath her cushioned bed.
She opens her eyes, slowly and dares to hope. Her smile is laced with sleep, but is no less sweet at who she sees. “Piper. You came back.”
"Of course I did," Piper says, quietly. She scoots closer, until their noses are almost touching and Calypso is nearly overwhelmed by the presence of her. That’s she’s here. She’s here. Again. Of her own free will. "I said I would didn’t I? And listen, I think I finally found out a way to get you—"
Calypso silences her, lays an open palm on her reddening cheek and then strokes the corner of mouth where a small, scar stands white against her dark skin. “You fool, you rode through this storm to get here, didn’t you.”
Piper curls closer and tangles their legs together. She runs her hand through caramel strands to scratch lightly at the skin on the back of Calypso’s neck, at her hairline.
It’s an obvious means of distraction from her incredibly stupid decision, but Calypso’s eyes flutter shut anyways and her heart warms at the thought of her fierce Piper, battling the rain and wind and waves. For her. It’s then that a thought strikes her. “You’re not wet?”
"I’m not." Piper replies and her grin his visible through her words. "Something that Annabeth gave me. I’ll show you later."
"That’s good," Calypso remarks, mentally noting to have Piper also tell of her adventures between this visit and the last. "I’d hate to have to make you sleep elsewhere."
"You’d kick me out because of a little water?"
"I’d kick you out because of a little water."
Piper lets out a loud, betrayed gasp and steals her hands and arms back. She rolls herself over, back to Calypso, and folds her arms across her chest. “And to think I brought you chocolate and books of the educational variety.”
Calypso smirks and doesn’t miss a beat. She scoots over enough to press herself into Piper’s back, and wraps her arms around her waist, mindful to let her hands wander around the edge of Piper’s shirt as they pleased. “I’ll enjoy them greatly tomorrow. As well as the company of their giver.”
Piper huffs, but her act drops the second Calypso kisses her ear, and she’s soon pushing her head back as much as she can, silently asking for more.
With a smile she doesn’t bother to hide, Calypso indulges her, lips pressing against her ear again and then her cheek and then the side of her neck and everywhere else she can reach.
And outside, away from their small alcove of warm bodies and sighing kisses, the storm finally finally begins to simper off into nothing but a dull murmur.
see the REAL reason they arent doing a third percy jackson movie is because thalia wouldve knocked percy out two seconds in, made out with annabeth and then left to have adventures with clarisse.
and the directors/producers just caNT run the risk of having that good of a movie made so.
percy’s hair is the same rich black as the smoking onyx rock that is my broken and aching heart
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of Valdangelo, I will fear no evil, for Pipalypso is with me.
Q:Pipabeth for the domestic meme PLEASE
(THIS IS THE LAST ONE, GUYS. SORRY.)
who is the big spoon/little spoon
Annabeth is the big spoon most of the time, mostly because she’s bigger and stronger and taller than Piper and just holds onto her waist until she stops struggling. And then she’ll kiss Piper’s neck to quell Piper’s indignant rage.
But then other times, Piper latches on to Annabeth’s back and never lets go and they roll around on the bed for a little bit, struggling for spoonage dominance.
And then other times neither wants to be the big spoon and they whine and paw limply at the other like the pathetic brats they actually are.
what is their favorite non-sexual activity
Visiting museums! Annabeth goes for the knowledge and Piper for the cool displays. They spend a lot of time in the darker exhibits, because Piper likes to get frisky and Annabeth doesn’t mind a few kisses in between learning time. Aquariums are a second favorite, because Piper likes to look at the animals and Annabeth likes to look at Piper looking at the animals.
who uses all the hot water in the morning
Piper. And then she’ll be loud and obnoxious and cause a ruckus until Annabeth stumbles in to either tell her to ‘shut the fuck up!’ or to join her. Mostly to tell her to ‘shut the fuck up!’ though.
what they order from take out
They don’t order much take out. The usual Chinese food or pizza when they are feeling particularly lazy. When they can help it, though, they like to walk to a local restaurant and chow down there, under dim lights and among mortals and immortals alike.
what is the most trivial thing they fight over
Dishes. Both hate doing them and they refuse to buy a dishwasher. If Annabeth is forced to do it she’ll let them sit in the water all day and rub the crap off with a dry towel. If Piper is forced to do them… She’ll throw them all away and just go and buy new plates, forks, cups, etc…
Sometimes, though… Sometimes they drag themselves into the kitchen and open all the windows. And then they’ll turn on the radio and set to work. Piper on the scrubbing side and Annabeth on the rinsing/drying side.
who does most of the cleaning
Neither because they are both slobs. Annabeth is just neater about the crap she leaves around.
who leaves their stuff around
See above. Piper spews her stuff everywhere without much care, but Annabeth’s worse (in Piper’s opinion) because for every sock Piper leaves out, Annabeth leaves out a deadly weapon or gadget nearby.
who remembers to buy the milk
Annabeth. And then Piper drinks it all.
who remembers anniversaries
Piper remembers anniversaries because of weird feelings she gets during certain parts of the year (probably has something to do with her Aphrodite powers), and Annabeth remembers because of her impeccable memories (which definitely has something to do with her Athena powers). They usually spend their anniversaries traveling.
