So do I! At least most of them; others I like but I don't love. I just really appreciate drama and sadness in books. Especially Rick's books, because it always leaves an emotional impact.

I know, and if one of them dies I'm sure it will be amazing story wise but I don't want any of them to die! D:

Um. I don't know. I wasn't because I knew it wouldn't be Piper.  It'll probably be Leo or Frank. So I'm sad.

UM I have a problem. Idk if anyone's realized on here, but on the BoO cover, it looks like Jason is wearing and orange shirt and for some reason that just totally distresses me because I mean maybe he just doesn't have a purple shirt yet because he's been at camp.halfblood this whole time but yeah.
Also, Rick said Reyna has a chapter in this which means we might get a Nico chapter too

This isn't exactly related to Blood of Olympus specifically, but it's related to PJO and I couldn't find a better thread for it, so I figure I'll post it here:
I realized that in the first Great Prophecy, it talks about a half-blood of the eldest gods. But that doesn't necessarily mean one of the Big Three, does it? Why did no one worry about te children of Demeter?
I saw that too, but I eventually decided that it meant only the men, hence "gods" but not goddesses. Would have been AWESOME if some daughter of Demeter had shown up Percy though...

But the goddesses and gods have been collectively referred to as all gods before. Aphrodite called herself the eldes of the Olympian gods at one point. But whatever :P

It's okay though, we have Emily to make up for it because Imo Demeter is the coolest

Okay, warning: STUPID QUESTION INCOMING!

Me and my sister were seriously arguing about this, so I wanted to hear you guys' ideas. In Mark of Athena, how big did you picture the jar Nico was stuffed into? I was thinking a very big spherical jar, with a 3.5 to 4 foot diameter. My sister thinks much smaller and cramped, very uncomfortable. Anyone have an opinion?

Umm I imagined a smaller jar that was uncomfortable. Like ummm...Idk how to describe it but I'll try to find it. They're like big, decorative floor vases. Oh! Like in Hercules the guy with the ceramics store and he was carrying those big vases? I imagined something like that

Ah, okay I can picture that. I wonder why I was thinking bigger...

I honestly imagined it as about 3 or 4feet  in diameter, and big enough to walk around in, like how comically shrunken people look when they're put in jars in movies and stuff. But the other version makes much more sense.
