Are they divorced together or what. In TTC Aphrodite warned them about "her husbands junk yard" but in Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods he says that they got divorced. I am confuzzled.

I put up a this poll: https://riordan.fandom.com/f/p/4400000000003511048
And the results say that Poseidon is better than Ares, so instead of explaining what is bad about Poseidon (*cough* what he did to Medusa *cough*), I will explain why Ares is good.
First, everyone is like 'oh he killed so many people through wars' that is wrong because no one blames Zeus when someone gets electrocuted or Poseidon when someone drowns. We should be blaming the person that killed the other, also you don't blame Athena for someone dying in a war.
Second, he might have broken his own brothers heart be having an affair with his wife but... Okay I can't make that sound good.
Third, the main thing is the wars so what else did he do that was 'so wrong'

So, I am confused on something. Please someone help me out.
So, we all know Hephaestus went up to Olympus, all angry, and trapped his mother in her throne, right? And both Ares and Hermes couldn’t get Hephaestus to release her, but Dionysus did it by getting Hephaestus drunk off of wine. Hephaestus then freed her and joined the council, correct?
So, later, when Zeus was having his big headache, Hephaestus split his skull open, and popped out Athena. And later on, Athena fought in the Gigantomachy, defeating Enceladus. But Dionysus was a demigod then, and him convincing Hephaestus to free Hera implies that he was around on the council before Hephaestus and had already created his wine, and Hephaestus was around before Athena…yet Dionysus was still a demigod during the Gigantomachy, an event Athena was in. I’m just so confused right now 🤚
Exactly what the title says it is.
If you go out in public anytime this week, be on the lookout for people that look like Riordanverse characters. Inspired by @Bluehairbrushninja 's post about Will at Chick-fil-a. Please report back.
My cousin looks like kinda like a younger Jason, but with curly hair.
Name the bad points of your favorite character and the good points of your least favorite character. Good luck.

*two hours before Athena's birth*
Hephaestus : yoo thanks Apollo for making this amazing song!!
Apollo: naaaaaahhh man no problem!
Zeus : AAAAAHHHH MY HEAD HURTS.
Hephaestus: Now watch me whip,
Hephaestus: *cracks open Zeus's skull*
Hephaestus: Now watch me nae ,nae
Apollo: *in the background* Watch him do it
*Hephaestus and Apollo run out of the room*
Zeus: .... 0-0
Athena: what the frick just happened
Zeus: ... life.
Athena : ....
Wait does this count as a meme? if it does ... you can delete it i will post this in the official meme post .
Hi, as seen from the title this is going to be a post where I assign Egyptian magicians a Greek godly parent and explain why I chose them. I suck at introductions lol, so without further ado let’s begin!
I picked Athena for Carter because of many reasons, some being:
He’s intelligent. He has a lot of general knowledge from travelling around the world with his father and also has common sense, something that some intelligent people lack. He’s not only clever, but also wise.
He knows how to fight and he’s good at making tactics that work well. Carter is very skilled with a khopesh, despite only training for a few months and is also quite physically strong. Plus, he follows the path of Horus and was his host so he has expertise in this area.
He’s a natural leader. Maybe this doesn’t link to Athena completely, but it was noted several times that Athena children were usually the generals when it came to war. Carter, of course is the pharaoh so he has to be a good leader to do that, and since he’s the first one in thousands of years he must be special. Many other characters have noted his leadership skills, and even Nekhbet has said that he is someone worth following.
So, okay this one might be different from Athena but Carter and Zeus share a lot of similarities, including:
He is strong. Carter is generally referred to as one of the most powerful magicians in the world, if not the most powerful. This is similar to Zeus, who is without question the most powerful god (not counting the primordials, titans, giants etc.)
He’s a leader. Like I said for Athena, Carter is often referred to as a natural born leader, and many people follow him. He’s the pharaoh of the house of life, which somewhat mirrors Zeus being the king of the gods. And Horus is also the ruler of the gods, so that aspect fits Zeus too.
He’s not always liked. Zeus isn’t always liked (and for the right reasons, I’m not complaining here) and his children are often disliked by some people too (*cough* Hera *cough*) and Carter has his fair share of enemies/past enemies too. Many other magicians hated him and wouldn’t listen to him until he overthrew the corrupt leadership and proved his worth as Pharaoh, which is similar to what Zeus did.
I would have put Ares, but tbh I think although Percy thought that Carter was a son of Ares, Athena and Zeus fit him more and Mars fits him more than Ares. So, anyways onto the next character!
Some of y’all might disagree with this, but imo one of the Greek gods that could be Sadie’s godly parent is Aphrodite, and here are some of the reasons why:
She is described several times as “boy-crazy”. For a thirteen-year-old, Sadie has a lot of interest in romance and dating and by the end of the series is dating both Walt and Anubis, despite being considerably younger than both of them. She is also a hypocrite, like Piper, as she scorns her friends Liz and Emma for being “boy crazy”, something that she is herself.
She cares about her appearance. Sadie evidently cares a lot about her appearance and looks, and dyes her hair a lot proving that she cares about what she looks like. She also has a specific style of clothing (i.e. combat boots, tattered jeans, and ear-buds) that prove that while she might not particularly care about fashion, (although of course she could) she has a sense of style and can choose clothes that look good.
She is often described as being pretty/beautiful. She’s often described as looking beautiful, and seeing as Aphrodite is the literal goddess of beauty this links to her. Also, this is further proved by the fact that both Walt and Anubis had crushes on her (which is really creepy ngl-).
She’s quite impulsive and reckless and doesn’t listen to commands. Sadie often acts quite rashly, and doesn’t think before she does something. Examples of this include Sadie following her dad in the British museum when he told her not to and her going to London for her birthday despite being told that it would be unsafe. This is a common characteristic of a child of Ares (like Clarisse) and is a flaw of Ares himself.
Sadie is also strong-minded and stubborn. She doesn’t change her mind easily and sticks to her opinion, even if it’s wrong.
Sadie has brightly coloured streaks in her hair, which sort of links to Iris
Idk what else to write here honestly but I thought I should mention her-
I don’t have much to write here lol, I just feel like Sadie has a sorta Nemesis vibe-
And in her wiki page it says “rebellious, mischievous, headstrong, and often baffles people with her sharp tongue and fierce nature. She's not afraid of breaking rules” “also strong-minded and stubborn” “Despite her aloof air, she loves her parents very much and wishes she had more time with them.” And that kinda sounds like a child of Nemesis to me-
Might just be me though
Y’all might not agree with me on this one but here are my reasons:
He’s a sau; a charm maker and he made many amulets. Walt has built many amulets, as well as a birdbath thingymabobby that I can’t remember the name of. This shows that he’s incredibly skilled at making and building objects, something that is a common ability of children of Hephaestus and is one of the things they’re most famous for.
This isn’t to do with Hephaestus exactly, but on his wiki page it says “he is sacrificial and does all he can to protect his friends” which sounds a lot like Leo, a son of Hephaestus. It’s also said that the children of Hephaestus vary in what they look like and in what they’re like so Walt could easily be one of them.
Hades/Thanatos/Some other death god
Okay, so here’s the obvious one lol. These gods could be Walt’s godly parents because they’re linked to death and funerals and Walt follows the path of, and is the literal host of Anubis, who is the god of funerals. I could probably add more to this section but I think it’s really obvious lmao-
So ye, I’m getting tired now so that’s the end of this post. Thanks for reading, if you want to see a part two say in the comments! And if you disagree with any of the godly parents I put maybe suggest a better one down in the comments!
@Coconutsanddaydreams and @Layla135 and @GraveDigger84 Thank you for your comments, It was really encouraging. So I plan to just introduce a few of them today, and if I get a total of 15 upvotes AND positive comments AND people saying they want me to do more, I'll do more.
For Annabeth's birthday, Percy baked her a three-tier lemon cake, (with Sally's help of course). For the top tier, he marbled gray and white fondant. He enlisted Rachel and Hazel's help in decorating the bottom two tiers with Percabeth moments. (underwater kiss, reuniting at CJ, etc.) Baking the cake alone (without decorating) took Percy five hours, but it was worth it to see the look on Annabeth's face.
When Apollo got back to Mount Olympus, he talked to Hermes and Hephaestus and they were able to construct a special type of phone for demigods, called the P4D. Demigods can call, text, download apps, and everything else you could do with a normal phone. And if you don't think the Hephaestus cabin constantly came up with new updates, you're wrong.
So in TLH, the Hephaestus cabin has a secret room for the counselor. So I have this tiny headcanon that all counselors do. We know the cabins are arranged in a giant U. Each secret room unlocks with a passcode, courtesy of the Hephaestus cabin, and then it leads to a tunnel. This tunnel connects all of the cabins and forms a big circle in the middle. Counselors will have weekly meetings here, or sometimes they just use it as a place to hang out.
OK, so that was it. I hope you enjoyed it!!!!!!
Hera: *talking to Zeus* Roses are red, Violets are blue
*Hephaestus walks in*
Hera: *points to Hephaestus* you are ugly and-
Hephaestus: *points to Hera* so are you. *walks out the room and high-fives Leo*
Hera: EXCUSE ME GET BACK IN HERE YOU LITTLE PIECE OF CRAP.
Zeus: ...... 0_0
Btw I made this meme. hope you liked it!!!!
So, I may or may not have built Camp Half-Blood in one of my Minecraft worlds... ;>
IT LOOKS SO COLL THOUGH!!!!!! I got, Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Ares, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Hephaestus, Aphrodite, Hermes, Dionysus, Hades, Iris, Hypnos, Nemesis, and still adding more!!!!
Is Aphrodite completely at fault for cheating on Hephaestus?
Now, right off the bat, I want to clarify that cheating is absolutely not ok. But when we're talking about Aphrodite and Hephaestus's marriage, then I kind of have to give a sort of exception.
When Aphrodite arrived on Mount Olympus, there was a whole lot of attention drawn towards her. So much that all the male gods flirted with her, the female ones got jealous, and the entire cycle. To call attention to more pressing matter, Zeus decided himself, that he was going to marry Aphrodite off to Hephaestus. I also heard a version where Hephaestus sort of blackmailed Zeus to do so. Either way, Aphrodite had no say in her own marriage. Typical.
Now, we know that Aphrodite is the goddess of love, beauty, and pleasure. So why would the goddess of beauty want to marry a god who was supposedly the most ugly, and he's crippled. You can't blame Aphrodite for judging Hephaestus by his looks because well, she's supposed to be judgmental isn't she?
When they lived together, Hephaestus gave his wife everything she could ever need. Except for the pleasure, wether Hephaestus actually loved her is unknown, maybe he was just happy he married the most beautiful goddess. But if you're not going to give the goddess of love, and beauty, and pleasure everything she needs, if you're going to be distant, then it's a matter of time before she ends up cheating on you.
So she saw Ares and eventually hooked up with him. Ares knew that Aphrodite was married to Hephaestus, why did he go along with it? Well, it might be because he wasn't the brightest or maybe it was because no other god really respected him. Not even his parents liked him, he was said to be foolish, and he just didn't get the attention. So I guess it didn't matter to him if Aphrodite was married.
Now we all know how they got caught and humiliated. But I don't think Aphrodite is completely at fault. Everything happened without her consent. I felt the need to make this post cause' when a lot of people think of Aphrodite, they think of the most humiliating thing that happened to her. But she's not really at fault.
Let me know what you think.

Can a demigod have a kid with a god? Like, a child of Hephaestus meets Ares they fall in love, they get married, and have a kid. Could that happen? If it has happened in the original myths, could you say which myth? Thank you!
