HoO: Thoughts and Compilations
Disclaimer: I do not own any of these things, I simply search for possible answers to the theoretical questions that go along with reading the books.
What will happen? Who will die/become immortal? What IS the mark of Athena? Who is the seventh half-blood?
Hi, I am EllaIncarnate(after a certain harpy you may have heard of) and I am going to put together a file holding possibilities and probabilities for how the Heroes of Olympus might progress. If you wish to add your theories to the mix, please contact me! Most of this is a summary, and a really cruddy one at that. Hope you all know it so I don't have to be held accountable for to much. I am very excited both for Serpent's Shadow in May and Mark of Athena in the fall. I've been thinking and studying all the Rick Riordan(to whom all belongs)'s books for clues, and several possible plot twists have caught my attention. Proceed reading if thou art intrigued:
First: a basic summary of the first two books, The Lost Hero and the Son of Neptune(even though PJ is actually a son of Poseidon), commonly known as TLH and SoN. I hope you've read the Percy Jackson and the Olympian series, because it would take waaaay to much time to convey the awesomeness of that. And I miss the first-person point of view soooo so much! WAAAA! Anyhoo, Jason wakes up on a field trip with Piper McLean and Leo Valdez, knowing not much more than his name. He ends up going to Camp Half-Blood, a place for demigods, and figures out that he is already claimed as a son of—ahem—Zeus. Piper is a daughter of Aphrodite and Leo's father is Hephaestus. Jason has trouble fitting in somehow, and also, all this weird stuff is happening: Jason knows of all the myths, gods, and monsters in their Roman forms. People get dreams/visions showing them that Lady Hera, queen of the gods, has been captured, and Piper, Leo, and Jason go on a quest to save her. Blah, blah, blah, lots of stuff happens, mishaps, misadventures, and other misses go down, they save Hera/Juno(looong story). Oh, and Percy has been missing this entire time, btw. NEXT!
Percy has been on the run from two gorgons for weeks, and they just won't stay dead no matter how many times he kills them! He'd woken up in the Wolf House with Lupa, the great mother of Romulus and Remus, where he had received his basic introduction to the world he lives in. Water is calming, and heals his injuries. He goes to the Roman camp, called Camp Jupiter(did I mention that his memory is missing too? No? Well, it is), and gets put in the disgraced(HA! DisGRACEd! like, minus the Grace, Jason Grace... wow, I'm shallow) Fifth Cohort. He meets Hazel, daughter of Pluto, and Frank, and unclaimed probatio, More stuff goes down, they defeat a giant in Alaska(well, they killed the giant in Canada, but defeated it in Alaska), which is the second giant that is killed, and on the way they met the Amazons, who just so happen to be led by Queen Hilla, formerly in employment of Circe on her island. And her sister was the praetor of Camp Jupiter, her name is Reyna.
There is an army of monsters headed by a second giant, the one made to destroy Poseidon/Neptune, on its way to Camp Jupiter to destroy it. The heroes get back from killing one giant and taking his ghost army's weapons and chariot and magical eagle-thing just in time(of course) using an equally magical horse. They dispense the weapons made of Imperial gold, and Percy kills the giant with the help of Terminus, an OCD god of boundaries. The book ends in a horrible spot, ending with the words:
"Lets go meet my other family!"
That made me slightly unhappy. Ah well... so that's kind of a summary, but not really, and you probably just skipped it completely... what ever. And it was waaay to long. Ugh.
Let the actual fun commence!
First order of thought: Twelve Giants
There are twelve giants, each specially made to destroy and take over from a single Olympian god. Take note of the twelve gods(at the time of the first giant war): Zeus, Poseidon, Apollo, Ares, Hephaestus, Hermes. The girls: Hera, Artemis, Aphrodite, Athena, Hestia, Demeter. Note the difference:
Zeus, Poseidon, Apollo, Ares, Hephaestus, Hermes, Dionysus. The girls: Hera, Artemis, Aphrodite, Athena, Demeter.
See my point yet? Okay, for those of you who haven't made the connection yet, here it is in a nutshell: one of the giants will(if RR catches it too) have to a)be reborn with new skills b)face Mr. D without the correct skills or c)go up against a god who is not an Olympian.
So that had better be superbly epic, or I will flood the world with my tears. Pretty much.
Second order of thought: Who is the "Fire" part of the Great Prophecy?
Once I finished SoN(Son of Neptune), the second time, it occurred to me that now, there are two people who have fire as a part of their "skills". Leo Valdez has fire on his side as a son of Hephaestus. Frank Zhang has fire on his side because of the piece of wood that holds his life's spark. I have no true ideas as to how this will work out, except for Frank dieing, which is obvious. But I will touch on that more later. ;-) haha! Made you wait! *evil grin and giggle* So if you have any thoughts on this subject, please, oh, pleaaaase contact me and tell me! PM or review, and I will put your opinions in my next chapter as an update on every subject. Keep Reading!
Thank you for reading. I will hopefully update fairly soon, please review with your thoughts on my first thought. I have a lot of them, and I'll keep thinking about what may happen! Can't wait! (^v^) happy owl! So yeah, review, read, and alert! Next chapters will include: Who is the seventh: my argument against Annabeth, Immortality: become a god?, Love Triangles: the points are Jason and Hazel, and Death may come!
