Percy is the strongest demigod I know, no offense to anyone here, but it’s true.
They were refering to this post in which I explained while I barely ever draw Piper. I thought about it even more since then (when something makes me uneasy I like to understand why) and I have come to the conclusion that it really is Jasiper and the fact that it’s so unbalanced and based on doubt, but nearly one-sided doubt, that is preventing me from truly liking Piper. I feel like this relationship is holding her back. The PJO fandom got me interested in her potential though, so I really hope RR will give me the opportunity to truly appreciate her. (for example, by writing about scenes where she befriends the other characters and train sword fighting, instead of having that happen off-screen only to have more pages where she wonders if Jason’s feelings for her are genuine like he did in HoH >_<)
I think most readers overlook details when reading. It does say in the Mark of Athena that Piper is a close friend to Annabeth. They have an ongoing game of stealing food one from another (one that, if I’m not mistaken, makes Percy a bit envious because Annabeth allows Piper to play like that with her and not him). Both of them say they’ve never had a friend like that, so close, best friend like.
Sometimes I think people think that an active character HAS to battle to be effective. Without Piper, the eidolons would never be found. Without Piper, they would never get the cornucopia, passed through Heracles (or hercules, hehe) or defeated the water nymphs. Her actions are more subtle, less combative.
However, Piper DOES want to be more than that: she asks Hazel to help her train with the sword during HoH. SHE FUCKING GETS RIDS OF KIONE with her subtlety. She bonds with Hazel, there are mentions throughout HoH of that (how Piper helped Hazel realise how Charmspeak works and vice versa).
I sincerely do not remember where the fandom got the idea that Jason is wary of Piper’s Charmspeak. I wonder if people read the “Demigod Diaries”…
IMO, it’s clear that Jason and Piper love each other. Will that be forever?? IDK… Love is mutable :)
If read attentively, there are mentions in MoA and HoH that the whole mist thing done by Hera is completely out of their minds, that what they feel is really what they feel. Perhaps not as detailed or explicit as us fans would have liked, but it’s there.
Sometimes I also think to myself if the whole character appreciation (or no appreciation) has anything to do with our personalities and our shadow.
I do not like any character “bashing”, and the fandom tends to do that a lot to loads of characters for no good/solid reason. The only character I do not care if is bashed or not is Octavian (Maybe perhaps Octavian is power hungry and I hate power hungry people…) :P
I think you misunderstood me. I never said Piper didn’t become friends with the others, I just expressed regret over the fact that we don’t see those scenes, we just hear they happened. We don’t see Annabeth and Piper stealing each other food on a regular basis, we don’t see them develop a true bond, we don’t see Hazel teaching Piper sword-fighting. Being told something happened and witnessing it as it happens have very different impacts. It’s something RR often does and it frustrates me to no ends, like when Percy and Thalia became best buds between book 2 and 3 and we just had to accept it. As it is and because they are other things about Piper that bother me, I’d have liked to read true “first stages of friendship” scenes with her because it’d have helped me bond with her too by identification.
I also never denied Piper the good points you mention. I think she is a very useful member of the Seven. It’s just that as far as I’m concerned her good side can’t erase the uneasiness jasiper makes me feel, and I really emphasized that this relationship was my main problem here.
I’d like to point out that just because I didn’t form the exact same opinion as you did while reading those books doesn’t mean I read them less attentively than you did. It just mean we’ve both been receptive to different aspects of them. This is something very important I feel the need to point out, not to you in particular, but in general because some people on tumblr tend to forget : different points of view can co-exist peacefully. It’s ok to have opposing opinions and to disagree. The expression of my opinion was not meant as an attack to yours, and I’m not trying to convince people they should agree with me. You talk about character bashing. I don’t feel like it’s what I’m doing, and I apologize if I come accross as doing anything of the sort because it is truly not my intention. I do not hate Piper, nor do I look down on people who love her. I know some people don’t like characters I like and that’s also perfectly fine ! Our different views and every variation in between are of equal value, none are more right or wrong than the other, it’s just a matter of perception. (you were right in saying that we see things related to who we are, our own personal history, flaws and qualities)
If you’re interested in continuing this conversation respectfuly, I can quote the extracts of the books I was speaking of, about the doubt in jasiper relationship, but only if you want to, I don’t want you to feel I’m forcing your hand. Have a good day ^^
