Guys washing trucks wearing dirty brown overalls. Older than my mortal form, yes, but not by much. This Link May be Unsafe. Young guy in coveralls. What did you hear?
This young man had lost his mother. He had survived the harsh training of Lupa the wolf goddess. But by mortal standards, he was barely an adult. I tried to soften my tone. But avoiding prophecies never works. And keeping secrets from friends… that really never works. He just needed to get over some of his self-pity and awkwardness first. That the way she sang the song, she was talking about herself, and her feelings about Jason.
He got her to open up. For a while, a few months maybe, I thought it was. Such romances are difficult to sustain once the crisis is over. Apollo has some surprisingly profound and comforting words of wisdom for her:.
You can choose how much of your ancestry to embrace. You can overcome the expectations of your family and your society. What you cannot do, and should never do, is try to be someone other than yourself - Piper McLean. Apollo now excels at really listening to people and offering comfort and support.
I scanned the deck. No additional guards were running toward us, no searchlights were trained on our position. Somewhere inside the boat, gentle music played - not the sort of soundtrack one might expect during an incursion. The pandai had not raised a general alarm. Despite their threats, they had not yet killed us.
I studied his majestic ears, then hazarded an educated guess. What did you hear? Always other people, other pandai snooping into your business. You want to keep control of the situation, without anyone else taking credit for your good work.
Apollo used some pretty limited info, managed to arrive at the correct conclusion, and then manipulated the situation to his benefit though the others started helping at that point. Even Piper could scarcely have done better! With a horrified whimper, Crest dropped his bow. He staggered backward, struggling to draw his sword. I tried to raise my hands in a placating gesture, then remembered they were tied behind my back.
You are not a fighter. Get out of here! Become the musician you want to see in the world! He must have heard the earnestness in my voice. He dropped his sword and jumped through the gaping hole in the glass, ear-sailing into the darkness. We just announced ourselves with a literal thunderbolt. Much like with Meg, reading Crest accurately was key to getting his help later.
I believe that these skills will again prove to be vital in the next book, particularly when meeting Reyna. It was Gamora who knew where to find him, that he would know what the Orb is, and that he would take it from them. And that means that in all the years Peter was with the Ravagers, Yondu never once made a deal with this freaky guy who collects living beings as if they are possessions.
Filter by post type All posts. Coachella, Weekend 1, When Apollo meets Meg, he actually thinks about his own people-reading skills.
When Percy and Grover get back from retrieving the rogue Celadon, Apollo offers a reward, which Percy declines: Apollo gets this reading-accurately-and-then-denying-it thing a lot with Percy especially.
THO Probably the best, and possibly his most important reading of Meg, was when he was able to identify what sort of manipulation Nero had used on her, to get her to obey him. Though you know what I did think was cop propaganda? The second episode of Queer Eye that featured the makeover of a Georgia police officer. Framing the issue of systemic police bias and violence against black people is nothing more than a simple failure of communication, and implying that black people are the ones who need to initiate that conversation, was blatant cop-propaganda and it was weird how there seemed to be basically no criticism of it.

It just makes me super happy that despite being a lying, deceiving and stealing guy, Yondu draws the line somewhere. Apollo is only this good at reading people when he actually tries.
My highly advanced people-reading skills told me she [Meg] was hiding something, but that was not unusual for demigods. For children blessed with an immortal parent, they were strangely sensitive about their backgrounds. You have nothing to fear. Besides, he likes me. I taught him everything he knows. Speaking of Singer of Apollo, that short story really shows how little he used to listen to others, and how easily he could be fooled into believing that they are thinking and feeling things that are favorable to him.
That means you two have time to help me with a small problem! When Percy and Grover get back from retrieving the rogue Celadon, Apollo offers a reward, which Percy declines:. Grover and I glanced at each other. Insulting a god was dangerous, but the last thing I wanted was to hear more music. It might distract from my performance if you exploded. How considerate of you. Or be tempted to punch himself in the face. He mostly stops that by the time TBM rolls around, though. He gave me that confusing expression again: I swallowed back the taste of fear and seven-layer dip.
So if he wants to know more about his new master, he has to become really perceptive and good at getting her to open up. I glanced at the rings on her middle fingers.
Your face turns to cement. She gave me a furious pout. I fight with them. Meg tore her waffle into tiny pieces. He gave me these rings. Your stepfather gave you rings that turn into imperial gold swords. I sensed a great tragedy in her past. Next to me, in the glow of the apple, Meg seemed to have turned to bronze. Her eyes were wide with fear. A little late for that, but at least she was quiet. Probably the best, and possibly his most important reading of Meg, was when he was able to identify what sort of manipulation Nero had used on her, to get her to obey him.
I understood now why she preferred to spend her time in the alleys of New York. I understood why she had such quick mood changes, going from cartwheels to full shutdowns in a matter of seconds.
She never knew what might unleash the Beast. She fixed her eyes on me. I could tell she wanted a way out - some eloquent argument that would mollify her stepfather and allow her to follow her conscience. Piper seems to have an idea that Jason might still be holding something back, but Apollo acts like he knows for sure, and is able to persuade him to open up. It struck me just how young he was - no more than seventeen. Older than my mortal form, yes, but not by much.
