Percy Jackson TV Show Announcement Reaction// Discovering My Godly Parent

In case you live under a rock or have been away from social media the past week, Rick Riordan announced that Percy Jackson will be getting a TV show adaptation on Disney+!! ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜ฑโœจ Who said second chance romances were dead?

Let me showcase my reactions really quickly: ๐ŸŒŠโšก๏ธ

“Hi! I’m Percy Jackson, and you’re watching Disney Channel”….IM CRYING AGAIN

My Godly Parent โœจ

In honor of the exciting news, I thought that it would be fun to reflect on who my godly parent would be as any excited PJO reader might be wondering about themselves.

I’ve already announced on Twitter and Instagram (because I have the patience of any other demigod), but after taking the official quiz on Rick Riordan’s website, I found out that I’m a child of Aphrodite! ๐Ÿ•Š๐Ÿ’– (the real ones know that Aphrodite claims her children with a dove)

I honestly denied this when the result first showed up and actually tried to retake the test 5x and rig it for Athena. ๐Ÿคก But the test kept giving!! me!! Aphrodite!! I asked on Twitter who everyone thought would be my godly parent, and many people also said Aphrodite.

After thinking about it some more, I think it makes sense, and I’ve come to embrace my godly patron like how my half-sister, Piper McLean, eventually did. Here are some of the reasons why:

1. I’m all about the ~aesthetic~. ๐Ÿ“ธ

I think it’s safe to say that I have a very identifiable aesthetic. It’s soft. It’s pink. It’s floral. I have a particular love for all things cute and ~pretty~, and the aesthetic just makes me really happy.

2. I love love. โค๏ธ

I’m a huge romantic, and I love reading books that feature a great romance. It’s why I have such a huge love for contemporaries because they almost always guarantee a happy ending. Give me all the cheesy Hallmark and Lifetime movies and K-Dramas!

3. I can charm speak (through memes)

Okay, this is a chaotic energy bullet point, but work with me here. I like to think that I’m a persuasive person, and I was captain of the debate team in high school. Not to say that I have a charming personality *flips hair* but I think I do a pretty good job of making friends through memes.

4. I’m a neat freak. ๐Ÿงน

Just like Monica Geller from FRIENDS, I am super picky about keeping everything clean, and I truly believe that one of the greatest inventions of mankind is the vacuum. ๐Ÿ˜ It’s one of my favorite past times, and despite being a demigod, I much prefer staying indoors (indoor camping > real camping)

“Every camper has a chest with their name painted on it to store their belongings…The cabin is always clean except for under the beds, which had chocolate wrappers, love notes, and other things under them.”

Cabin 10 Wikia

5. I care strongly for the people I love

I was reading through Silena Beauregard’s wikia and one sentence stood out to me in particular. “Being the daughter ofย Aphrodite, she cares strongly for the people she loves.” I love my family and family and would pretend to be Clarisse La Rueย and fight a drakon to protect them.

Truthfully, I don’t think I’d be the stereotypical Aphrodite child ๐Ÿ’ž because 1) I can barely do makeup 2) I’m not drop-dead gorgeous and 3) I can’t speak French, but if Piper McLean and Silena Beauregard can defy the traditional Aphrodite standards so can I.

On the chance that this blog post has you HYPED, and you want more PJO content. Check out my book review for The Lightning Thief and Happy Birthday, Percy Jackson post featuring my favorite memes! ๐Ÿ˜

Are you excited for the PJO adaptation?

What scene are you most looking forward to?

  5. Yes I can totally see you as a daughter of Aphrodite!! I’ve only ever read the first PJO book when I was younger, so I’m not super familiar with the Gods/Goddesses, but from what I know, you definitely fit ! I’m still not sure if my parent is Athena or Apollo because I’ve taken a few quizzes & each time I get one or the other, so it’s a toss up for now! I’m hoping to do a read of the rest of the series soon so I can join in on the tv show party with everyone !!

  6. This is so so exciting and your gifs perfectly sum up my feelings towards the announcement too!! Honestly one of the highlights of 2020๐ŸฅณHaha, I just took the quiz and I got Aphrodite too and at first I was like “what no way” but then I read the rest of your post and now I kind of see why I got it!! I definitely am all for everything pink and I’m a neat freak and am pretty much a hopeless romantic so maybe I shouldn’t have been surprised, lol.

    Ooh congrats, my godly parent is Poseidon but I get how you feel. Over the years I’ve taken countless godly parent quizzes on various sites and 90% of the time I get Poseidon. But the odd time I don’t I completely go into denial ๐Ÿ˜…
    Thankfully even year later when I took the official quiz I still got Poseidon otherwise my entire childhood would’ve been a lie ๐Ÿ‘€

    Aw.. Aphrodite is so nice and I loved seeing all your reasons why you fit in that category!! I can definitely see you being an Aphrodite child in your own way. I had done a few quizzes to see what cabin would be mine and I mostly got Hermes but I didn't realise there was an official quiz (don't ask why. I mean I'm disappointed in myself) and I got Athena this time so that's cool !! (I might do it a couple more times to see)

  16. all the memes and gifs are SO relatable. this was one of the best news we couldโ€™ve gotten, especially considering weโ€™ve had such few of those in the last two months.
    i also recently took the official quiz (i didnโ€™t even know it existed! rip) and i was so surprised to get poseidon. i remember that, back in the day, i used to say my godly parent was poseidon simply because i was a fan of percy and wanted to be like him, but i had never taken any tests. now, iโ€™m surprised that i got the same results indeed!
    i think aphrodite works perfectly for you! there are a lot of demigods in the percy jackson universe that kinda defy the expectations and are not the quote on quote stereotypical, perfect child, and i think that works a little bit for everyone! like, i got poseidon as my godly parent and i am pretty scared of the ocean, so iโ€™m definitely thalia daughter of zeus scared of heights, hahahah.

  17. I! Am! So! Excited! For! The! Show!!!!! All your reactions encapsulate my reactions too, and I’ve also been bookmarking *so many* hilarious Percy Jackson Tik Toks. This fandom is so creative and I love the collective meltdown that everyone is having ๐Ÿ˜‚ Uh, Tiffany, did you just list you are not drop dead gorgeous as one of the reasons you thought you weren’t an Aphrodite girl??? That sounds *very* Piper McLean of you if you ask me.

    I took the official quiz and I got that I’m a hunter of Artemis, which I’m not mad about but also does that mean I don’t get a godly parent? Who knows. This post was so fun to read Tiffany! I can’t wait to freak out about the show together when it comes out ๐Ÿ˜„

I’ve always thought I was a child of Athena, and recently taking the quiz has solidified that.
