I’m at the British Museum and I’m at the Egyptian artefacts and guess what?! I saw the Rosetta Stone in person! It’s actually a lot bigger than I expected.
What's on your mind?
Hey guys, if you really like the Magnus Chase books, let me remind you that in one of the books, Rick wrote,’To JRR Tolkien, the man who brought me into Norse Mythology. ‘ Or something like that anyway. So, next time you read the Magnus Chase books, thank Tolkien.

Would it be possible for Magnus and Alex to have children like not adopted like biological dna sharing children?
Ok so I love Riordan for putting in Hearthstone, the deaf elf, but I also think Riordan put a few tropes of disabilities in there with Hearth. 1. Hearth’s power comes from the fact he’s deaf. If he wasn’t deaf, I doubt he could do rune magic. 2. Riordan played up Hearth’s deafness throughout the book. Like the fact that Hearth’s dialogue was all italicized instead of in quotation marks. Then there’s the fact that he’s constantly saying that Hearth uses sign language. I still love Hearth and PJO, but I really think there could be some better representation. Thoughts?

Before I start this is just my personal opinion so please don't fight me.
The Kane Chronicles are my favorite series by Rick Riordan. (Now I haven't read ToA yet but anyway) I love the representation and the narration is by two sassy teenage siblings.
Carter and Sadie are the first siblings I've seen to actually act like my siblings and me. We fight and argue, but at the end of the day, we stick together. In the Serpent's shadow SPOILERS:(when Carter is watching Sadie with Appophis' statue and he doesn't want to do it. Sadie tells him it's ok.)SPOILERS. That is really how my siblings and I act. We fight but at the end of the day, we love each other. I could honestly find ways and fangirl for hours but back to more reasons.
Representation. Carter and Sadie are biracial. Now I am not, but I have family and friends who are. Zia is Arab. I'm not and I don't have friends that are. However, I know somewhere out there an Arab girl or boy is reading and saying there I am they're like me.
Another reason is that I really like the characters, I guess this kinda goes with the sibling part but here we go. I'm homeschooled. Carter's weird fascination with lockers in The Red Pyramid is totally true. I get this weird exciting feeling when I see an actual locker. XD His horrible social skills, I've got them too. Sadie's weird love triangle thing is crazy and impossible in this world so I'm not going to get into that, but the relationships are great. Tarwet and Bes are sweet and Carter and Zia are shy and caring.
Another thing is that the gods aren't trying to kill them. Sure there's a bad guy that is but the gods are actually helping. Tarwet and Bes bring a nursing home full of gods, Bast and Bes are there most of the series, Ra helps at the end. And you've got Iris, Horus, and Anubis too.
Lastly the humor. It's there like all Rick's books you've got sass, humor, strange chapter titles, and little bits of present-day Carter and Sadie fighting. Great humor whoever it's coming from. I'm sure there are downsides to the book and parts not everyone likes, but to me, it's my favorite.
If you got all the way through thanks so much! Have a great day leave a comment if you like but please be respectful to me and others sharing their opinions. -Dreamer

Everyone’s talking about a Magnus Chase musical, but nobody’s talking about a Kane Chronicles musical. It would work so much better, and I totally want the characters to sing. It would be amazing.
Some miscellaneous stuff:
I want Carter and Sadie to sing their solos, and then have an emotional duet near the end.
I need ensemble numbers. GIVE ME ENSEMBLE NUMBERS.
Set having an epic villain song! He needs an epic villain song!
Zia will sing, and I will be gay.
Either bad special effects so bad they’re good, or actual good special effects.
If Anubis does not sing, I will riot.
Bast! Bast gets a solo! Yes Bast!
A battle ensemble song with the main characters getting solos!
A House of Life song! With nice harmonies!
I can’t wait for the sets and choreography! Those would be amazing!
Anyway, what do y’all think about a Kane Chronicles musical?
She gives me zia vibes (she looks drunk in this pic tho... or she looks like someone hit her in the head with a frying pan)
According to wiki, the fourth Demon Day is December 30th. Isis was born on this day, and so was I! As a mythology nerd, I find that really cool.
Why do some fanarts like this...
Show Magnus holding his sword in his right hand because Magnus is a leftie (like me) so he would be holding Jack in his left hand.
I FINALLY bought the first Kane Chronicles Book
Also, I like the redrawn cover, this is the only series who's made a original and good looking redrawn cover compared to the overly cartoony one that everyone is adopting
Right, so in Kane Chronicles didn't Amos say something like 'there are other gods in Manhattan'. Yes, well, Percy Jackson lives in Manhattan. So was Amos talking about the Greek gods. If so, how does he know? Was he a demigod? Was Julius a demigod too? So are Carter and Sadie legacies?
I know I'm overthinking this - I usually do - but tell me what you think in the comments. Thanks!
