Blogging Positivity: Pt 3

Today’s prompt is to write a letter to a fictional character, an author, or a book that has helped or inspired you as a reader. I’ve decided to write my letter to Annabeth Chase, who is a character in two of my favorite series of all time: the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series.

Dear Annabeth,

We are doppelgangers in a different world. Not only do we both look alike (blonde hair and gray eyes), yet we have the same stubborn personality and the same hobbies as well (I, too, love reading, learning and battle strategy).

Yet, where we differ is you are much more confident in yourself and your abilities. Where all of the campers have drastic powers and abilities – calling lightning from the sky, controlling the dead, controlling water – you’re content with just your clever wit and your intelligence. You’ve taught me that you don’t need superpowers to be fierce and powerful.

Sincerely,

Zoe

  1. First of all, those are two awesome series. I loved them both. Jason was my favorite but we’ll leave that for a different discussion.

    This is a neat idea. Isn’t it awesome how books can affect us so much? It’s amazing to think about.

    1. So glad you enjoy these series as much as I do Stephanie! And, I’ll admit it, Jason is a pretty cool character. πŸ˜‰

  2. i have never read any of the Percy Jackson books. it’s one of those things that i completely overlooked and now i wonder, “is it too late to jump in?!” Annabeth sounds like a great character- being clever and witty will help you go a long way, even without awesome super powers!

    1. It’s definitely not too late to join in Alex! πŸ™‚ Definitely give this series a try – you won’t regret it. ♥

  3. Confession: I haven’t read a single Percy Jackson novel. *hangs head in shame*

    Ah but this is lovely! While I adore badass, dragon-slaying heroines it is nice to have a heroine who relies on her wit rather than super powers every once in a while.

    Also grey eyes? PRETTAYYYYY. πŸ˜€

    1. Haha, I’ll forgive you for now. πŸ˜‰ But definitely try and fix that. These series are amazing – you won’t regret reading them.

      And thank you! xx

  4. I love how your letter is so short, but it still says a lot of things about you and Annabeth! I loved Annabeth in the series as well and thought that she was nearly alike as Hermionie, considering her bravery and such. I’m glad that, in a way, she taught you something as well πŸ™‚

  5. I also loved reading Annabeth in the Percy Jackson series! She’s so brave and even still tries to be even though she’s already afraid. She’s a fighter with a soft heart, and I love her for that too.

    Really great post πŸ™‚

  6. Hey Zoe I thought your letter to Annabeth was short and sweet. I like how you can identify with her yet see things in her that maybe you wish you could possess. Thanks for sharing with us.

  7. Okay, this is awesome. Annabeth is possibly my favorite character of all time, and I love that she manages to be a warrior and terrify just about everyone despite having no superpowers.

    Fabulous post, Zoe! πŸ™‚

  8. I love how succinctly you’ve described Annabeth and yourself, and it’s a very lovely letter! A heroine with wit and intelligence is always awesome to have – clearly I need to read Percy Jackson haha. Great post, Zoe!

    1. *whispers* I’m glad I’m not the only one who likes her more than Hermione. *runs away before someone from the HP fandom looks at me angrily*

  9. This is absolutely adorable Zoe! My goodness I could just smush you in my pocket. I love Annabeth too, she’s such a remarkable heroine and doesn’t need to be in your face. I really admire her quiet determination. Great choice Zoe and such a beautifully written letter <3

  10. Ah, I love the second point you make – wits really are enough to be super powerful! πŸ™‚ I enjoyed this series so much (I saw in one of your previous posts that it’s one of your favourites), I used to have a children’s book of Greek myths when I was a kid and I actually learned loads about Greek mythology through the Percy series, too. I like retellings a lot.
    Annabeth reminds me of Hermione Granger a lot – they’re both amazing girls that have probably inspired lots of readers (I know Hermione was an inspiration to me when I was younger).
    Great post! πŸ™‚

    1. So glad to hear you like this series as well! And she is definitely a lot like Hermione – they both get by with their fierce attitude and their intelligence. Thank you!

    1. I am so glad you like her as much as I do Rain! And what you’ve said is so true. It just goes to show how important and powerful a sharp wit can be.

  11. Ah, reading your letter to Annabeth made me so happy. I, too, envy Annabeth’s natural confidence. I think we all have our insecurities but, you’re so right, we each have different strengths too, even if they are mundane. I really love your post for this Blogging Positivity segment, Zoe!
