annabamf asked:
the thing is that leo had the opposite of character development since moa, and i have no idea how could such a thing happen. the possibilities where endless and there was so much potential! it's sad how things turned out though

thatu:

Rick does this one thing a lot: develops romance as opposed to developing characters. romantic love = finding maturity. When a character can’t or won’t find romantic love, the arc is closed for them in this aspect (hence Thalia). One of the few cases in which hasn’t happened is with Frank who, in hindsight, lost weight as a symbol of growing (shitty thing to do). To be fair, Piper and Jason both progressed AFTER being together but a lot of their progress had to do with overcoming jealousy and insecurity in their relationship (same happened to frank in MoA as well, but it’s ok cause with all the bullying in that book i forgive him for anything). It’s not like all characters went through this, but look at Percy and Annabeth and try to think of them from the first to the second series and how it went from being friends and fighting together to just Rick saying they’re great friends all the time instead of actually showing anything other than their NEED TO BE WITH EACH OTHER OMG THEY LOVE EACH OTHER SO MUCH. The characters kind get stuck there.

Or else it happens what happened to Jason, Piper and Nico which that their progress WAS their love life.

That said, Reyna, luckily, got her character development. without turning into an amazon or a hunter or the oracle which is how he solves these things (but he did give her an open ending that sounds suspiciously like someone is gonna make cameos in a future series whatever). That said, because Reyna progressed so much while Leo stood the same place or even got worse, I could not see these two, as of HoH together. Not because of Caleo, because, at the end of HoH there’s still room for both Reyna and Leo to learn and grow together but as of BoO, Reyna is such, such a different person than she was at first, that she would never find support in a person like Leo. 

A lot of people who are anti-leyna thought of that before, but as I saw it (and still see it) the Leo and Reyna of the first few books, had many traits in common and opposite thoughts that could clash in productive ways. The Leo of Caleo and the Reyna who understands where she belongs and is fulfilled by it, could never properly help each other as deeply.

annabamf asked:
i remember a whole while ago you wrote some leyna fics which where the light of my life and now they'll probably be my escape from this caleo hell im in

thatu:

Man, to me, the worst part is that, at first I thought, you see Leo and Reyna have a bunch of parallels and flaws they could work on together and then after Caleo it’s like they twisted both Calypso and Leo SO MUCH for the sake of getting them together that I’m so, so better off with Reyna on her own.

Though I still feel torn about how I feel on the possibility of her maybe being a thing with Magnus Chase. 

Will I boycott it just so we can finally get release from Rick’s thirst for money and percabeth?

Or will I surrender to Reyna and Annabeth being family?

[aggressive mom friend reyna doodles intensify]
idk what i was thinking about when i drew this i’m pretty sure i was like romans have this thing about regulations and tidiness so if they had this really important thing going on you would be expected not to come looking like you just fell out of bed
i also feel like nico secretly likes being fussed over but is just stubborn enough to resist any attempts as much as possible
(plus i just really wanted to draw the poses and faces so humour me)
