its all right to not ship a populaire ship, its good toi are being polite about it, cause their are some people who just go off the mur crazy with hating something. when i first started lire the livres i kinda of viewed them as a brother sister relationship and i shipped Rachel and Percy together but as time went on i started shipping Percy and Annabeth more. its not that i stopped shipping Rachel and Percy i just thought Annabeth and Percy were a bigger ship in my mind. so at one point yes, but as time went on no
I don't ship them either. I find Annabeth rather annoying, I don't hate her but I feel like her relationship with Percy really brings out the worst in her. He dotes on her. What does she do? Nothing. 99% of their cutesy interaction is when HE does something, in return she bosses him around like there's no tomorrow. Her nickname for him is 'Seaweed brain,' I don't know about toi guys but if my significant other gave me a constant nickname that insulted my intelligence I wouldn't find it cute. Annabeth isn't Percy's girlfriend, she's his minder, he can't blow his nose without her permission and generally a lecture on why that's not a good idea as well as a few plus put-downs about his intelligence. And then that's 'sweet' how she is totally in charge of the relationship? What? Relationships are supposed to be equal. I'm sorry but I will never be able to ship a ship where one half is made to look good at the expense of the other. And they have nothing in common, literally NOTHING. Yes, opposites can attract but there has to be something to tie two people together. That's just my thoughts though. As for the Percy x Clarisse part, I don't necessarily ship it (because I think Clarisse's feelings for Chris Rodriguez are super-sweet) but they at least have things in common and see each other as equals (even if they would never admit it) if they got together now I would be really shocked but if they slowly became a couple from Clarisse's introduction like Percy and Annabeth did I don't think I would have minded. Just my opinion.
