Yeah watch me get a lot of hate for this
Ok. *Deep inhale* Piper McLean.
Just- Why- Can I just- How is she so bad? I don't get it.
"She used her charmspeak to make Jason think of no one else but her"
At any point in HoO, did you see her say "Think of no one else" No. Sure, she was jealous of Reyna for a bit, but Jason still acknowledged Piper, and it's not like Jason went back to Reyna.
"She's a Mary Sue"
How? When did you see her or any demigods get exactly what they wanted? She doesn't demand things, certainly not.
"She uses her charmspeak regularly on mortals"
Why is this a problem? She's using her powers! Isn't that a good thing? Charmspeak is basically like manipulating the Mist, besides, unlike manipulating the Mist, Piper's charmspeak wears off.
"She hates her mom but thinks that she's powerful"
Well, first off, no one in their right mind would like Aphrodite. That was a joke but still I don't like her. Well Piper has reasons. Her mom puts beauty and love in front of everything else, she ruined Reyna's life, and also kinda shattered Tristan's life, too. Love is a very powerful emotion, so I guess I can see where Piper is coming from.
"She wouldn't feel guilty if anyone of the Seven except Jason died"
Well, actually, she would. Ok well at first she thinks that, yeah. But then she realized that she would because she thought about how shocked and depressed Annabeth would be if Percy died. Also, you can't expect Piper not to be possessive. Children of Aphrodite are known to be lovers. It's in their blood.
"She complains how weak she is"
Well yes she does do that. But wouldn't it be hard for you if six people around you had amazing powers, or were crazy smart, or a natural leader? There was also a bit about her not looking into Katoptris when she could have because it was too scary. How can she not be scared? There's a war going on, and the fate of seven teenagers rest on the fate of the world. That's probably gonna make you scared enough, especially when the visions she had in the knife were already scary enough to begin with.
K that wraps up my thing about Piper bye
