#110 - it's probably better that way anyways, i mean power does funny…  [+] (4 new replies) 02/28/2014 on That's my type of female +1

True, power messes with people's heads, but in a small group democracy is almost impossible. You need "Unity of Command" (as the military calls it) when you are in small numbers. One person has to have absolute final say, otherwise even seemingly small disputes can tear a group apart. Once your group gets large though (I'd personally call that at around 20-30 people) you do need democracy to keep one person from getting power hungry and turning it into a dictatorship.

true that, as power is a dangerous demon, gain too much of it and you wont own the power, the power owns you.

At the same point, in a critical moment, you need a single leader to make the quick decisions. It doesn't pay to have to have a discussion when the enemy is banging on the door.

a very good quality then. though if the group becomes big, a council may be needed to maintain the best chances of survival for the group as a large.

Indeed my good sir. I sincerely hope this happens, after all "How can [they] open Leo's and Calypso's without Calypso."
Although a mortal dating an immortal permantly would be awkward, and I can't see Leo becoming immortal. Actually, it's kinda terrifying imagining Leo with god-power.

Well, he technically helped Echo potentially, remember, originally Narcissus fell in love with his reflection in the water, not the mirror/celetia bronze. he saw her face, and fell in love with her beauty. But in that instant, just lik Hazel, he realized her heart belonged to another.

Never interpret prophecies, they always end badly; honestly, final breath is pretty worrying in and of itself.
But just because he can handle it doesn't mean he should have to. Seventh wheel was a cruel, yet accurate way of describing his relationships, like Hazel, Echo, Calypso and confused-Nymph-in-a-yellow-sundress. (Help me Calypso, you're my only hope) .
And don't worry about length, I enjoy reading and discussing.

I just meant that he can never catch a break, personally His mom was personally of by Gaia, and he was blamed. At least most others have someone to count on, a mother/father/brother/someone. , professionally Festus, plus the whole Percy/Annabeth falling into Tartarus , or romantically. Always he is given hope, and always he gets the shit end of the stick, and the fact he usually remains jovial is a testament to his strength.
I reaaalllly hope Calypso isn't another one.
#29 - mattoland (01/23/2014) [-]
yeah but you also have to remember that Leo is like the only dude who can actually overcome those obsticals, like personally: after his mom died he takes incredible amounts of solace in his friends, like Hazel and Frank, even though there is sexual tension between him and Hazel, he puts it behind him because he understands Frank actually loves her professionally: he improves Festus and brings him back to life with his own hands, and works tirelessly to get his friends back and romantically: There's a fucking line in the prophesy about him and Calypso: "An oath to keep with a final breath" sorry bout the novel mate

Same, as I said, I love Leo, no homo, but Rick Riordan seems to like him as a punching bag. Maybe that's just because I sympathize with Leo.

i never really saw him as a punching bag, just more of a subordinate character, in...the 3rd one, i don't remember it's name right now, he was such a little bundle of badass, but in the 4th one he crumpled like paper, except when he met Calypso, no longer care about spoiler tags
