Title: Wow look at these (Percy Jackson Related)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 23, 2014, 11:26:24 AM
So if you don't know who Viria is, she's an amazing artist that makes amazing fanart for Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, and all other sorts of wonderful series. She's even been noticed by Rick on several accounts!
She makes these photo collages, I guess you could say, with her art and the lyrics to songs and they are PERFECT. Serious feels-killers. They even make me almost like Piper (cue angry mob). Anyway, today was the first time I've seen actual video slideshows made with her images and the music. So...look!

Awesome! I had seen those before, but I love them. My favorite is probably How Far We've Come, but they're all great. I like that most are just scenes that happened, but that one had some predictions for House of Hades before it came out. And don't get me started on how much I feel for Nico in some of those...

Have you seen Soldatino with Viria's art? It's great as well.

It kills me and only make me even more aware of what a wreck I'm going to be after Blood of Olympus
Title: Re: Wow look at these (Percy Jackson Related)

I'm wondering if there'll be more Percy Jackson after Blood of Olympus?
Title: Re: Wow look at these (Percy Jackson Related)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on October 02, 2014, 07:41:09 AM
I WANT MORE.
Also, have you guys heard the title of his next series?
Title: Re: Wow look at these (Percy Jackson Related)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 02, 2014, 07:43:49 AM
I don't think so....doesn't it have to do with Norse gods?
Title: Re: Wow look at these (Percy Jackson Related)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on October 02, 2014, 07:48:21 AM
Yes. Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard.
Magnus Chase.
SO APPARENTLY HE IS RELATED TO ANNABETH SO NOW I'M FREAKING OUT.

Oh my Odin yes

Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 02, 2014, 08:01:32 AM
Yep, he tweeted that he did have some relation to Annabeth because the names weren't coincidence.

I hope he does more things like the Demigod Diaries, and does a cameo in Magnus Chase like he did with the Kane Chronicles
Title: Re: Wow look at these (Percy Jackson Related)

I hope so too! One can never have enough Percy.

Post by: GreyCaboose on October 02, 2014, 08:16:15 AM
Well, the one that I like the most so far is the first chapter of my Curse of Eris series, starring a group cast of Half-Blood losers who basically fuck everything up and have to fix it.
Title: Re: Wow look at these (Percy Jackson Related)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 02, 2014, 08:18:25 AM
Oh. I wanna read it still.
Title: Re: Wow look at these (Percy Jackson Related)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 02, 2014, 08:38:11 AM
Here:

Chapter One: First Off, I Would Like To Say That None Of What Happens After This Is My Fault.

When I woke up on my 12th birthday, I basically knew that the day was going to suck. How did I know? Well, to start, my dad’s girlfriend Cassandra was hitting the door with a fist that sounded like a battering ram, screeching at me to get the heck off my lazy bum if I ever wanted to see the light of day again. She didn't actually say 'heck'or 'bum', but I'm sure I'm not allowed to repeat what she really said. Hi, I’m Rick Aberdeen. I live in a small place called River City with my dad, my dog, and my dad’s girlfriend-of-the-week Cassandra Spinks. I never knew my birth mom, but with my dad’s taste in women, I didn’t know if I wanted to. Until my 12th birthday, my life had consisted of avoiding sunlight, playing video games, and making sure that my dog Nibbles doesn't disturb the neighbors. Everything was perfect for ordinary, unpleasant Ricky Augustus Aberdeen. Until I actually got out of bed. That was the exact moment that everything went to Hades.

This is still a rough draft, but it's probably the best part of the story so far.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 02, 2014, 08:39:49 AM
Who's his mom o-o
Nibbles? xD
Title: Re: Wow look at these (Percy Jackson Related)
Post by: GreyCaboose on October 02, 2014, 08:41:16 AM
His mom is a mystery to readers! She will only be revealed at the end of the story! *laughs maniacally* And yes, the dog is Nibbles.

I like it too!

OMG but like what if Magnus Bane from TMI was actually the Magnus from Rick's next series and demons are actually Norse gods and he's named Magnus Chase because he married into the Chase family?

this is why I shouldn't drink coffee later than 5 PM
Title: Re: Wow look at these (Percy Jackson Related)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on October 02, 2014, 11:44:47 AM
Then Magnus would be a dirty cheater and would be related to Annabeth and the whole thing would be very weird.
Title: Re: Wow look at these (Percy Jackson Related)
Post by: Catvomitsky on October 02, 2014, 11:49:31 AM
But what if Alek died and the reason he even dated the Chase person was b/c he was so heartbroken and he never wanted to date another Shadowhunter but he was still subconsciously attracted to superhuman powers? And aren't they canonically related?
Title: Re: Wow look at these (Percy Jackson Related)
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on October 02, 2014, 12:03:43 PM
Unless the one he married was Annabeth, it wouldn't make sense for him to marry one of the Chases because he was attracted to superhuman powers; the rest of Annabeth's family is mortal.
And Magnus Chase is probably cannonically related to Annabeth (he said that the names weren't a coincidence, and I can't think of any other reason), but Magnus Bane is from a different and unrelated series. .-.
Title: Re: Wow look at these (Percy Jackson Related)
Post by: Catvomitsky on October 02, 2014, 12:09:45 PM
That...makes sense. But I won't let your logic crush my crazy fangirl dreams! *is in denial*

That's because they're probably busy fighting Gaea's forces.

That's because they're probably busy fighting Gaea's forces.
That's...a surprisingly good explanation. I think I shall think of that every time I feel like they aren't sending my books fast enough.

Me toooooo. But I don't live in Austin and it's a day camp and there's no way my parents would come to Austin with me for a summer camp and even less of a chance that I could go alone. :(

Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 20, 2014, 03:17:33 PM
If I go to school out there I may be able to swing trying to be a counselor but I don't really want to go to school there...
but it does say "Austin branch" so that may mean there are other camps elsewhere.

Apparently these are set up by Rick and some lady was trying to get one set up in a town near me...I'm seriously considering talking to him about starting one myself.
Title: Re: Wow look at these (Percy Jackson Related)

I've been trying to find a way to contact Rick about starting a Camp Half - blood here and basically his website is like "sorry, Rick is writing you can't email him and he probably won't reply to twitter. Also, he doesn't actually answer any real fan mail he gets." So. I'm at a loss.

I lied! He said we have to contact a store that actually has the program (The Book People) and see how they did it...so that's what I'll do.
Title: Re: Wow look at these (Percy Jackson Related)

It would be so awesome if you actually did that :D
Title: Re: Wow look at these (Percy Jackson Related)
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 21, 2014, 10:11:20 AM
I really want to! I already have a plan for how things'll work at the actual camp. There will be a claiming ceremony the first day and everyone will be sorted into cabins and then schedules will be made centered around a typical Camp Halfblood schedule(on Rick's site) but of course we won't have the deadly stuff...and I mean I have horses but they're not really for little kids to go pony around on in place of pegasi so we'll figure something out. Maybe. But yeah I'm really excited:P
 ...I just don't really know how I'll actually get it started

Ow! Ow! These songs are still great, they still hurt! So much happened one way or another, and the things that didn't, could have.

As an aside, Rick Riordan recently linked to a fan-made Leo song, which is pretty great. The singer also made a Nico song. I'll try to link to them sometime if anyone is interested.

Glad you two like Leo's! One warning, Piper's can get soft and hard to hear the lyrics, so you might wanna open the video description so you can follow along.

So the song in the first one of these came on while I was at my friend's house. I'd completely forgotten about these and it took me so long to remember why I knew the song and why it reminded me so much of PJO/HoO. And then I was even more confused at why my friend knew it but it didn't remind her of PJO. Just thought I'd share :P (And also bring these back to attention because they're awesome.)
