Hello guys! This is another installment in my series of Ship it or RIP it posts, and this one is centered on Thalia Grace. Somebody suggested that I do this, and I had to do some research on ships involving her. Let me just say, I would not recommend doing that.
Let’s start with Thaluke, which is probably the most commonly shipped. This one is better than most fanon ships, and they actually had some chemistry, but after Thalia died, Luke turned bitter and ended up going to the dark side. By the time she was reincarnated by the Golden Fleece, he was 100 percent on Kronos’s side, causing the possible feelings Thalia had for him to go out the window. Less than a year after she was brought back to life, she joined the Hunters of Artemis and was sworn to maidenhood. Though Thalia and Luke may have had feelings for each other at a time, Thalia quickly got over her feelings and swore off romance forever.
Now, it’s time for Theyna. I know lots of people on the wiki who ship this. I personally don’t and this is why. First things first, they are both maidens. Maidens can’t just go around dating people. They are clearly very close, but they’re relationship seems like a friendship and nothing more. Not every good friendship turns into romance. Neither of them have showed romantic interest in females before. Though it is still possible that they like girls too, it is fairly unlikely. All in all, I think this Theyna lacks the chemistry required for a romantic relationship.
Okay, time to discuss Thalico. I am generally confused about why people ship this. Thalia is a maiden and Nico is not romantically interested in girls. If this isn’t enough evidence for you, when they appeared together in Percy Jackson and the Sword of Hades, Thalia only thought of him as Bianca’s little brother, and I can prove this. She literally addresses him as Bianca’s little brother. They’re barely even friends, more like acquaintances, and acquaintances are on the far end of the spectrum from significant others.
So, in most of my other posts, I conclude everything by proving why the person should by with their canon partner. For this one, I’m going to prove why Thalia should be single. When she swore her oath to Artemis, it was like her way of showing that she was over Luke and that she didn’t need a man in her life. She told Percy that she hadn’t felt at home since her death at Half-Blood Hill, and that joining the Hunters was something she needed to do. She made her choice to swear off romance, and I think that we should respect that.
Thanks for reading everyone! I know this isn’t as long as other posts I’ve written in this format, but I hope you still enjoyed! If you have any other Thalia ships or recommendations for characters I could make a post about, feel free to post them in the comments.
