Discussion Saturday - Percy Jackson and the Olympians read-along - Which Twin to trust?

Discussion Saturday - Percy Jackson and the Olympians read-along - Which twin would I trust more, Apollo or Artemis?

Hey all!
Welcome to this read-along’s third Discussion Saturday! 

Strangely, my second one disappeared... I’m not liking this, hopefully Blogger isn’t trolling me >.>

This week’s theme is: Which of the Archer Twins, Apollo or Artemis, would I trust more? 

Hm... trust is a delicate thing. If we look at the books, both Apollo and Artemis seem pretty trustworthy. Apollo helps the quest group many times, giving them rides and hints and nudges in the right direction. Artemis provides help and shelter and guidance. 

ITS SO HARD TO CHOOSE! I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE EASIER THAN THIS OH MY GOSH! O-O 

The moon or the sun? Poetry and prophecy or hunting? Archery or Archery (okay that’s super obvious for me I choose archery duh). Seriousness or light-heartedness? 

How about let’s see what they did wrong, maybe that’d help? 

Apollo made Thalia drive his car, even though she said she didn’t want to. Then she torched a city. Not great. 

Artemis’s hunters think they are better than everyone, so make rash decisions. Plus, she turns people she doesn’t like into animals and kills them. Better not be on her bad side, right?

I think I made my decision... 

I think I would trust Apollo more. Not just because he’s cool and funny and all that jazz. He genuinely gives good advice and helpful tips. He may be a bit insisting, but I guess that’s better than someone who’s almost... too calm, you know? The sun gives life to the Earth. 

Plus I don’t want to be hunted as a deer, than you very much! 

I mean Artemis is also awesome, but right now I’m leaning more towards Apollo :) 

What do you think about the subject? Make sure to join the read-along if you haven’t done so already! Also, make sure to check out Erika’s discussion!

  1. Haha, I was the complete opposite! I'd trust Artemis more. But if I could have them both, I would! Having the Archer Twins guarding your back would be pretty amazing!

    1. The main reason why I chose Apollo is because he was actually there, you know? I was so close to choosing Artemis though! It was just a very momentary decision. =p

    2. Haha, but I can't help but remember that you happen to have a yew bow from Apollo himself? ;)

  2. I honestly would rather have Artemis but they both would be awesome to have on your side.

    1. To each their own, right? :) I was really really close to choosing Artemis, but when I wrote this, Apollo made more sense, at least for me =p
