Which one is your favorite?
So this is like a guess the character game. But this is not yout typical guess the character.
The rules are:
You have to describe a character in only 5 words
Those 5 words should not give out who they are, they also should not include family members or who they are/were dating. They also can't include what species are they (eg: demigod, einherji, magician, weapon, god/goddess, etc..)
These 5 words can be in a sentence or just plain words.
Whoever guesses correctly can continue the chain.
It can anyone or anything from the R-verse or RRP (pls do mention if it's RRP)
I'll go first:
Selena • Gomez • Sing • Summer • Pendant
Reply your favorite chapter titles of Magnus Chase.
Well basically I've always wanted to make a comparison of those two series since they are the only two mythology-based series (will be 3 soon) that are not based on Greek/Roman mythology.
So let's get to the similarities of the two series:
They each have 3 books in the series and overall have the same objective: stopping the end of the world whether you call it Ragnarok, or "The Time When Isfet Lone Remains".
One of the love interest(s) of the main character(s) appear in the second book e.g. Walt and Alex.
Unlike PJO or ToA, in both MC and KC, the characters travel not only around the USA but around the world and worlds so there is lots of traveling there.
Now the differences:
KC: two main relationships e.g. Carter x Zia and Sadie x Walt/Anubis are both het. MC: Magnus x Alex I mean that's everything in one ship XD so MC explores that part more.
There are more characters that play important roles and are parts of the whole puzzle of the plot in MC whereas KC only has the main 4 plus maybe Jaz sometimes and some other people like Desjardins who turned out to be good.
Way more possible in ships in MC than in KC.
Way more interaction between the Greek/Roman pantheon in MC than in KC even though i am happy that Rick featured Drew and Lacy briefly there XD
Shorter chapters in MC.
Different writing style: MC has 1st person POV while KC is a recording transcript which interacts with the reader more.
Apophis only appears at the end whereas Loki interacts with anything any character does in MC
So overall I feel like MC was more interesting to read actually than KC as it had a faster pace, a larger plot and more character development!
Well I finished and... I'm just shook. I think it was 99.9% satisfying. Now, I just don't know what to do with my life anymore. I don't know whether to cry, laugh, kick and punch everything I see, or to just... idk keep living life. I'll just say that Rick Riordan did an awesome job to keep me busy for a decade.
Can you imagine, when Percy was training Magnus, how terrified Percy must have been when Magnus died the first time in one of his training exercises? Can you feel out freaky that would be, and then how weird it would if you saw someone you last saw pretty much dead standing in front of you perfectly good to go?
Magnus- Did I Mention (I’m sorry)
Mallory- I’ll Make A Man Out of You
Halfborn- A Girl Worth Fighting For
Alex- Be Prepared and numerous other villain songs
Blitzen- Heigh Ho
Hearthstone- Just dances in the background of all of them
Sam- Almost There
Amir- Just brought food
Jack- Just sings whatever he feels like and then belts out Let it Go
If you think of others, let me know!!
So, I was reading MCGA and I have a question. We all know that Jack likes swords. We all have ships, you know like Fierrochase, and Percabeth. But who would you ship Jack with? I personally ship Jack with Riptide (Yes she is a girl). So who would you ship him with?
Magnus goes to Camp Half-Blood
And they’re playing capture the flag
Magnus- So there’s no killing, right?
Camper- Of course not! Why would you ask that?
Magnus- Because I hate dying, it hurts.
Camper (amused)- Have you died before?
Magnus- Yes. I’ve been *lists all the ways he’s died*
Annabeth- Magnus! Don’t break your cover!
Nico walks up
Nico (staring at Magnus) What the heck are you?!
Then the game starts and Magnus gets captured instantly because he left Jack at HV. Then they do another three-legged death race and Magnus helps heal, and is totally showing off how he just touches and bam! gone. And he and Will get into an argument.
Rick has confirmed that Percy will be in ToN, but what will his role be? I do not think he will die, because he will probably have a future role in CHB and the stand-alone novels.
Nico di Angelo
Nico is confirmed that he's in ToN, and he was mentioned in the prophecy. But what will his role be? He will be a major character, but I do not think he will die. He has a future role in the riordanverse, I could just sense it.
Piper. Many people hate her, and I personally agree. Although she is one of the most powerful demigods currently at CHB, she is a loose plot hole and does not have much meaning in the books now.
Carter and Sadie Kane- What happened to the magicians?
Since 2014, we have not seen or heard anything from the Kanes and the magicians. What happened to them? I think they will have a major role in the stand-alone novels, I'm just speculating.
Egyptian Gods and Goddesses
Remember when in The Serpent's shadow, the gods were banished from Earth? Well, what happened since then? Anubis is currently the only god who still resides in Earth, but what about the others? Have they returned?
Alex Fierro+ Magnus Chase
Again, we haven't seen much of MC after 9 from the 9 worlds. What happened to them as well? I know that Annabeth visited Magnus, but where are they now? Are they still in the Hotel Valhalla?
After ToN, I have no clue what role Meg will have in the demigod world. She is kind of a stand-out, like Nico, but what will her role be after ToA?
Let me know what you guys think in the comments. Bye! <3
Who agrees that there should be a series where all the demigods, magicians and einherjar will unite....like a combination of PJO, HoO, ToA, MC, KC...all the protagonists against a super antagonist of all time to save the world....How cool would that be? Everyone uniting to save the world and everything combined....I really really want a series like that....
Mallory Keen & Rachel Dare
I mean come on, they are literally twins in the official art, and I was also shocked to see that Rachel was older than Mallory Keen (biologically). Another thing, Mallory is said to be shorter than her hall mates however Rachel is said to be somewhat tall, but they look so similar though. The freckles I’m not sure because in the art they both have but I don’t know if Mallory is described to have them too.
Anubis & Nico Di Angelo
Black Shaggy Hair
Again, literally the same person. Okay other than the fact that Anubis is a god and not as sulky and is hundreds of years older than Nico but still, physically they look very similar. Both also have a connection with death as Anubis is the Egyptian god of death and Nico is the son of Hades, Greek god of the underworld
Octavian & Jason Grace & Luke Castellan
Close Cropped Hair
They could be triplets with different lifestyles, Luke is the guy with a dangerous, living on the edge kind of lifestyle hence the scar. Jason is the football player that goes to the gym. Octavian on the other hand is the guy who plays video games and gets annoyed easily, he also barely goes out so he’s the palest of the bunch.
Magnus Chase & Annabeth Chase
Cousins are not the same as siblings so they are still here hehe. They are also the only brother and sister pair here since I knew they were already related. Even though they are already related, they do have quite a bit of differences. Annabeth is more tan than Magnus. Their tones of hair are different, Annabeth more honey-ish while Magnus is more buttery.
Walt Stone & Thomas Jefferson Jr.
Last ones, they both have somewhat similar builds and both of them are willing to protect the people they love. They both also have a connection to death since TJ is well, already dead and Walt was well, it might be a spoiler so go and read the Kane Chronicles if you don’t know yet!
Anyways, that is it!
Do you guys agree with me? Who else would you have added/removed?
Edit: Sorry about Annabeth and Magnus, couldn’t think of any sister brother pairs so yeah
