Okay, this post is aimed at people who are making fan art and fanfics. There are some things I have been noticing, some of which are subtle and some of which are more significant, but anyway, they’re getting under my skin. So here we go.
Nico is gay, so shipping him with girls is unrealistic and can be seen as disrespectful to his sexuality.
Sam should not be drawn with hair out of her hijab. This is Islamaphobic and offensive to those who practice Islam.
Hazel is a person of color. Her skin is a dark chocolate brown, and her hair is light/medium brown, not blonde.
Chris Rodriguez is Hispanic, not white. He is a very minor character, and isn’t described much, but I have been noticing that a large number of fan drawings portray him as white.
Alex Fierro is Mexican American. Based on description, Alex’s skin does not seem to be as dark as, say, Leo’s, but we can still honor his/her heritage by drawing him/her with the proper skin tone.
Reyna, Thalia, and all the other Hunters of Artemis have sworn off all romance, not just heterosexual love. Because of this, they cannot date anyone, so we can honor their choice to join the Hunt by not shipping them with anyone.
Okay, those are all the things that I can think of for now, but if I think of any more, I might make a part two. Thanks for reading! If you have done any of these things, such as drawing Sam with hair out of her headscarf or drawing a character as the wrong race, then don’t worry. The point of this post is to point out mistakes so that you can learn from them and make sure to never make them again!
This is a continuation of the first 2 parts
Chiron: Chiron’s future will depend upon ToN
Claudia: Claudia will probably live her life in the 4th cohort like any other Roman
Lavinia: Lavinia will probably have a happy life leading the 5th cohort
Malcolm, and the rest of Camp Half Blood not previously mentioned: their future depends on ToN
Travis and Clarisse and Chris: they will probably show up in ToN (at least Clarisse probably will), so their future also depends on the last installment of the series.
So, we know Chris is a son of Hermes who, for a short period of time, joined Kronos' army. When Luke joined the army, even before we discovered he wanted to sacrifice himself and become Kronos' body, Hermes made a big fuss about it and he also got angry at Annabeth saying that she could've prevented it from happening etc.. etc... But Hermes never even mentioned Chris joining the army, even though he is his son too.
Either he has a preference for Luke or he didn't care about Chris. Who else thinks it's weird?
