Percy Jackson was genuinely great, much better than Harry Potter. The only reason Harry Potter did better was timing and the movies. It's quite a shame what they did with the movies, I don't understand how they fucked it up so much. They should consider trying again, maybe as a TV series.

I think his mary sueness actually ascended in the later books.
First book was kinda your traditional quest for a hero, yeah he was clearly the chosen one but in books 2 and 3 he forced his way onto quests that werent fucking his. And got away with it. Book 4 was probably the low point for his mary sue-ness, then book 5 cranked it up again.

These posts are correct. Harry Potter is the most popular ya novel series because it’s the first one that really kicked off the trend
>inb4 someone brings up some other ya novels with movies in the 80s or 90s that no one here has heard of

Hunger Games first movie at least was good which is what made a lot of people read the series like me. Percy Jackson movies were awful though they had nothing to do with the plot.

>>15641576
I don’t think criticisms that it’s a ripoff of Harry Potter is correct. Besides at the broadest view of the overall series arc ok sure. But that’s just basic fucking story structure and Riordan was able to fit it in well with Greek mythology
>there was a first war that happened before the series started that defeated the big baddie,
>hero fights minions of big baddie that are trying to bring back big baddie
>prophecy that hero will defeat big baddie
>eventually big baddie returns at end of book (though in HP this was the 5/8th book while in PJ it was 4/5th)
>then there’s a 2nd war and at the end hero beats big baddie (though imo PJ did this in a much more intelligent way with prophecy really being about a different hero and Percy’s decision being about whether to trust the other hero or not)
All of this is pretty basic story structure, and in fact PJ’s is a bit more intelligently done.

None of the individual book stories resemble themselves at all. None of the characters resemble themselves at all. Percy Jackson and Harry Potter are characteriscally completely different besides being MCs.

>>15641302
Depends on the book. Some of the books Luke was pretty good some of them he was shit. Kronos was completely basic though that’s what he was like in Greek mythology. I thought Atlas was cool for the one book he was in but none of the other titans were done that well admittedly.

Olympians were assholes in Greek Mythology, if anything they should’ve made Poseidon more of a dick. It was central to Greek myths and it’d be dumb to change that.

I mean there's also the whole 'magical world' vs 'the real world' aspect that Percy Jackson had that felt completely cribbed from Harry Potter, like how normal people can't see or interpret magic shit but the demigods can or whatever.

Harry potter was able to build up it's brand because kids all fantasized about going to Hogwarts. If you think about it the world of Harry Potter is not some remote magical otherworld but rather the british bourgeois ideal. The harry potter wizard is what every british bourgeois strives to be: educated at an old elite institution, intellectual yet still down to earth enough to be industrious and like ordinary things like sports (see quidditch), masters over nature (in the case of the wizards this is taken to the extreme in their mastery over reality itself), and, above all, unconcerned with trivial day to day tasks. All of the actual work in their world is done by magic or enslaved magical creatures. The wizards are free to live idle lives of invention and intellectual pursuit without any actual work. In the real world the british bourgeouisie sought to achieve this through the subjugation of the proletariat and colonial subjects. The harry potter world takes the bourgeois ideal and removes the horrors required to uphold such a way of life. Voldemort is the villain for threatening to disrupt this ideal. Hell even the ministry of magic is just a glorified version of the British bureacratic government and intelligence apparatus.

Not really, but there are a few times when Gods were born from male gods but not in a way I would classify as mpreg.

One time Zeus accidentally vaporized one of his pregnant lovers, and he sewed the baby into his leg calf and the baby spent the rest of his 9 months there, and that’s how Dionysus was born.

Also there was another time where there was a prophecy that the child of Metis would be wiser then their father, so Zeus naturally had sex with her anyway and when he learned she was pregnant, fearing the kid would overthrow him, he ate Metis. 9 months later he had a splitting headache and got Hephaestus to cleave his head open and out popped Athena.

Also when Kronos cut off the testicles of Ouranos, the testicles fell into the sea and created a lot of sea foam, and from this sea foam Aphrodite was born.

And are usually complete losers who don't do shit. Hence they are incels in the first place. Snape was a very skilled wizard and potions maker. You don't become someone like that without serious dedication and talent which would in turn make motherfuckers pin for him.

> As do pining losers who carry that hatred to the offspring.
And these are generally miserable people who suck at life too. (Besides, Snape was a cunt towards other houses too, the emotional maturity presented wouldn't allow him to achieve the rest) Snape not only was a great wizard but also someone brave and skilled enough to risk his life to inflitrate the closest circle of genius magic Hitler to stop him.

He could work as an incel who changed his ways if he were a simple follower like Peter and motivated by something more basic, and bailing when shit got too risky. Or remaining more of a genius who gave up on love and focused on making up for his mistakes.

Scourge works due being in a more simple story that's basically a fable.

This was utterly forced though, it was out of nowhere and up till that point in no way for Nico’s character.


Also Ancient Greek homosexuality was utterly different from modern homosexuality. If you read The Symposium you understand the homosexuals were homosexual because of their utter hatred of the feminine. Women were physically and mentally weak. Homosexuals were praised for their masculinity in lusting after only what is masculine. You would not see anything like these modern faggots that act like fucking little girls back then. As well all men no matter their sexuality were expected to have a wife and children as their civic during, and if you were ‘debauched’ even as a child you could have the citizenship stripped from you. The modern faggot would be utterly crushed if he were ever in a society with such brutally masculine men like this. Tbh most modern men would but most modern men are faggots.

It wasn't so much that it was forced. More that it was downright creepy. Nico was like fucking 10-11. Why is he having dirty thoughts about fucking Percy?
And then Riordan did a Stephanie Meyer and aged up Nico so he could fuck Apollo's son.
That's sick my friends. Sick.
It's not so much an asspull, it's more that you are making a little kid age up and then use dumb anime logic (SHE IS REALLY 700 YEARS OLD SO IT'S OKAY TO FUCK THE LOLI) to defend it.

Also it's pretty fucking insulting to compare Nico and what's his face to Achilles and Patroclus (I don't remember either of them in the Illiad being pussies who can't fight, I'm not talking about Nico I'm talking about the other kid who I forget his name is).

I never read Percy Jackson or Hunger Games and only read a tiny bit of Artemis Fowl. For all the YA novel craze out there, none of those stories interested me. Harry Potter and Lemony Snicket were very inspired by Roald Dahl. That's something children can relate to and I think it makes both works genuinely better than just 'lets put kids in adventurous situations'. That's cool but there's not as much magic to it unless you're also a downtrodden kid and adults are something you can't always trust, even as other adults are always out there to help you.

It was an actual book, not a movie on paper.

Let me try to explain the very subjective and wishy-washy distinction:

You know how literally every single movie based on a book gets blasted for missing huge parts of the source material's content? That's not because Hollywood doesn't give a fuck, it's because they're inherently different mediums with different limitations. Books can basically be as long and complicated as the other wants them to be, they can easily juggle a bunch of concurrent plots and put so much detail into a 60 second situation that it takes an hour to read, and readers are usually completely okay with massive subplots having little to no actual effect on the ending of the story and rather just standing as fun characterizations that set up the atmosphere. Movies not only have to deal with the fact that they generally have to be less than 3 hours and every second is horribly expensive to produce, but the expectation that everything happens in real time in a series of events that stack on top of each other to get to a single, satisfying ending. Sure, there are some weak exceptions to this, but the truth is that movies are perceived by your senses, not your brain, which can process things at whatever pace is necessary, and movie audiences demand that everything is 'cute'.

Harry Potter was written by someone who had seen to many movies and didn't understand how books are supposed to take advantage of their lack of limitations. Every book is a total 'Point A to Point B with every loose end resolved in one fell swoop with a cutesy message' piece of childish garbage, where all the world building is in whimsical images described to you instead of interesting dynamics to think about and apply.

Percy Jackson is obviously also written for younger audiences but it still takes the risks that books are supposed to like dealing with more obscure details, subplots to establish characterization, moral grey areas, and unsatisfying resolutions that don't tie into a nice 'plot bow' but still contribute to the overall experience. It doesn't appeal to the sort of babies we have taught people to think like, and it didn't work well as a Hollywood movie so it never blew up as an international brand.

Artemis doesnt, neither does Hera. In the OG series the big 3 (Zeus Poseidon Hades) weren’t supposed to have sex either because of a pact they made at the end of ww2 because there was a prophecy that the next child of the sons of Kronos to reach 16 would decide the fate of Olympus.

Athena kids aren’t born in the traditional way. Athena mind melds with some west point nerds or some shit and 9 months later a baby pops out of her skull.

The Gods were never portrayed as straight up good guys besides maybe Poseidon, only Kronos was portrayed as a clear evil while some of the people beneath him such as Prometheus and Luke were Synpathetic.

No it's mestizo. IRL that's obviously not the case, but for some reason, Latin American authors have symbolically used green to denote mestizaje of some kind. This was cemented in the Death of Artemio Cruz but predates that, however, that story really made it become a thing in Latin American literature and since then has been a common tool to note someone is mixed race and that could play a part in their character.
