Question (@Dunic777): Who is your favorite Greek God? Why? #PercyJackson

LL: Posiedon, because I’m a little biased!

Question (@Gomezcirlce): What do you like about your character?

LL: Whats not to like! Percy is a lot of fun.

Question (@AlexLermanBR): To Logan: have you ever considered playing a villain?

LL: Of course I have… who says I haven’t!

Question (@MrHalonoob123): Logan how much has Percy changed in this movie with the addition of Tyson into the picture.

LL: He’s changed a lot. He found out he’s got a half-brother, and his whole world is flipped upside down.

Question (@st0rybrooke): To Logan: What was the last movie you watched that made you see the world through different eyes?

LL: It’s been awhile, but the last movie I watched that did that was A Place Beyond the Pines.

Question (@LoveMaeDarcy7): What is one of the funniest things that happened on set/at camp?

LL: Filming in Charybdis on a boat w/ zombies. We’re shooting our way out, I was going crazy, thinking “this is hilarious”

 

Question (@ThomasDylanC): @ThorFreudenthal What steps did you take to become a director?

TF: I moved from doing artwork to commercials to short films to a studio film. I was always making stuff. That’s the most important thing

Question (@Hi_Reanna): What’s your favorite mythological creature?

TF: I find Kronos and his incredible evil endlessly fascinating! He ate his own offspring and stopped at nothing to get his way!

Question (@Eminunal7): Which god would you want as your parent? Not asking your existing ones. And Thor, this question is for you, too.

TF: I would probably want Zeus as my godly parent because I imagine it would make a lot of things easier to attain!

Question (@WeLoveHPJV): Has anyone gotten hurt on set?

TF: No! But during one night, there were a lot of mosquito bites which was traumatic enough!

Question (@noel1122): If you could have lunch with any god or goddess, who would it be

TF: Hermes! He’s a one man entertainment center!

Question (@SaraWu04): What is a scene you are excited for fans to see?

TF: I’m excited for fans to see Thalia’s sacrifice and what Thalia becomes! Very exciting, very emotional.

 

Question (@Percasm): favorite moment/scene?

AD: My favorite scene from the movie is when we meet Tyson for the first time! I love Tyson’s character!

Question (@pennsaballa2): I wanna ask @AADaddario if she liked being blonde better than brunette?

AD: I loved being blonde for the movie. I’ve always wanted to be blonde but being brunette is easier, less work!

Question (@TjernagelBreck): What was it like to work with Nathan Fillion?

AD: It was wonderful! He’s so funny and such a joy to be around! He’s REALLY great in the movie

Question (@mrsdaddario): to Alex: what aspect of Annabeth does she identify with the most?

AD: She is a combination of strength and weakness, I share that. I can be vulnerable but also have my moments of bravery.

Question (@percabethness): to @AADaddario : If she enjoys the filming and who’s her favorite character on Percy Jackson, out of Annabeth.

AD: I love Clarisse. It’s really cool to see another strong female character. I think she’s really badass in the movie

Question (@WeLoveHPJV): Funniest blooper on set?

AD: We had a scene running on a dock, I slipped and fell right on my butt. It was really embarrassing but funny at the same time

More Rick Riordan Q & A Highlights!

We’ve already posted highlights from the first part of Rick Riordan’s Equinox Q & A session, now we’re back with the highlights from Part 2! Take a look!

***NOTE: SPOILERS! SPOILERS EVERYWHERE! …EXCEPT FOR MARK OF ATHENA.***

Q: What was the saddest death you had to write and why?
A: Silena in the Last Olympian; b/c it was a noble death & brave.

Q: You plan the story before you write it?
A: Yes, I really have to, or I’d get stuck halfway through.

Indonesian Book Display posted by Rick!

Q: Set vs Ares… who wins?
A:Oo. Good one. Advantage Set. Much sneakier.

Q: Coffee or tea? Books or movies? Beach or farm?
A: Coffee, books, farm. (though I like the other choices too)

Q: Mrs. O’Leary or Blackjack?
A: Mrs. O’Leary. I love dogs, especially if they can shadow travel and run over entire armies.

Q: What was your favorite cliffhanger you wrote?
A: Well, have to be careful of spoilers, but the end of Sea of Monsters.

Q: What was it like writing 3rd person for Percy and seeing him through other characters’ eyes?
A: Actually it was really cool! I wanted to do the Heroes series in a different way, because it kept things interesting for me. I didn’t want to do the exact same as PJO.

Q: Did you ever think that Percy and Annabeth could be reincarnations of other heroes, like Perseus and Atalanta?
A: That had never occurred to me. Good question. I think the old heroes are in Elysium, though, so probably not.

Q: Which of the book covers from the PJ series or HoO series is your favourite?
A: I love John Rocco’s US covers. I think my favorite is The Titan’s Curse for PJO, Serpent’s Shadow for KC, and Lost Hero for HoO.

Q: If you were a magician, which path of the gods would you choose?
A: Is it bad that I’d go chaos magic w/ Set?

Q: Are Maenads a very real terrifying interpretation of FANGIRLS?
A: Haha. Maybe. They are authentic myths, though.

Q: Have you worked in collaboration with the team of PJ Sea of Monsters film?
A: Nope. I just write the books. As I’m always saying, I have nothing whatsoever to do w/the movies, so don’t ask me anything. Guarantee you, I don’t know!

Q: You said you got teary eyed when you wrote a scene in MOA. Does that mean we’re all gonna have a heart attack?
A: No, I don’t think so. It’s just kind of a sweet, sad scene. Not a major tragedy or anything. I can’t get more specific.

Q: Do you have the ending of the HoO series ready in your mind?
A: Yes, more or less. And no, I can’t tell you. 😛

That’s all for the Q & A, but you can follow Rick’s regular tweets over on his Twitter!

Rick Riordan Q & A: Morning Edition!

As promised, Rick Riordan has been graciously answering fans questions today and plans to continue doing so throughout the weekend! Since he announced that he’ll be taking a short break until this afternoon to prepare for his Mark of Athena tour, we figured we’d recap Part 1  the highlights of his Twitter Q & A from last night and this morning!

Rick Riordan author Percy Jackson Heroes of Olympus

Rick Riordan

Please note that THIS CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS FOR EVERY BOOK EXCEPT MARK OF ATHENA!

Q: What is the title of the 4th book (HoO)?
A: You’ll find out at the end of Mark of Athena.

Q: Why is Blackjack a mare in SoM, then a male in Titan’s curse?
A: Percy wasn’t looking closely. Or maybe I made a mistake.

Q: Is Calypso gonna come back for Heroes of Olympus series?
A: MINOR SPOILER: Yes, you will see her at some point.

Q: What happened to the gray strands of hair of Percy & Annabeth?
A: This will be answered in Mark of Athena.

Q: Do you have any plans for Luke’s reincarnation?
A: No, Luke has gone on to another life. (sniffle)

Rick Riordan Twitter Q&A troll

Rick’s response to one fan suggesting he’s a bit of a troll: “Who me? Nah.” and this photo!

Q: Would you like to have a unicorn?
A:Meh, third choice behind llama and penguin.Q: Which character would you dress up as for Halloween?
A: Haha. Uh, probably Chiron if I could figure out the costume.

Q: Will Leo have a serious love interest in any book of HoO?
A: Leo is wondering the same thing. That’s all I can say!

Q: Will Grover show up in The Heroes of Olympus series again?
A: He doesn’t have a big part, no. He’s off doing nature stuff. However, the story I will preview at the events will feature the return of Grover.

Q: Will Thalia be in MoA?
A: No, there are already soooo many characters to juggle w/the seven prophecy demigods.

Q: If you could talk to a god/goddess, or a demigod, for a day who would you choose?
A: Maybe Hestia, least likely to kill me.

Q: Is Annabeth based on someone in your life? If so, then who?
A: No. Sort of a combination of many students I taught.

Q: Whatever happened to Clarisse?
A: She’s around, just doesn’t have a big part in Heroes.

Q: How did the REAL Charlie Beckendorf feel about you killing off the character?
A: I haven’t talked to him! He’s nothing like Beckendorf in the books. I just borrowed the name. I only name a few characters after real ppl, and they are ppl I know personally. Travis/Connor Stoll, Mrs. Dodds, Mr. Brunner.

Keep your eye on Rick’s Twitter account, @camphalfblood, for more Q & A throughout the weekend!

Rick Riordan Answers Questions via Twitter

UK Cover version of the Mark of Athena book.

Rick Riordan was amazingly gracious enough to answer a boat load of questions from fans via Twitter.  Here are the ones regarding the books.

 

Q: @Maggheera Is Drew in the Serpent’s Shadow the same Drew as the one in The Lost Hero?

A: Yes. 😀

Q: @Sir_Cumstances Why are you so great at writing cliffhangers?!

A: A true cliffhanger means characters end the story in imminent danger.  Most of my endings aren’t actually cliffhangers. They just leave unanswered questions. Mark of Athena, however, ah… never mind.

Q: @Pob584 how did Frank & Hazel kill the Giant in S.o.N when they can only be killed by Gods & Demi-gods working together?

A: The giant Alcyoneus is unique. He is only immortal in the land where he spawned, in this case, Alaska. Once outside, he’s fair game.

Q: @brogueskittles Tell me Nico is safe! Tell me he’s gonna have a bigger role!

A: Nico has a key role in MoA but demigods are rarely safe!

Q: @AtrociouslyMad Will we be getting a Percy and Annabeth reunion in MoA or not?

A: Don’t think it’s too much of a spoler to say yes.

Q: @TheSwiftFactor ARE YOU PLANNING A CROSSOVER? (Kane/Heroes).

A: If I did, that would be way down the line. Heroes & Norse series first.

Q: @cs412 How come, in the new series, not all demigods have ADHD and dyslexia?

A: That’s true in PJO too. Many demigods do, but not all.

Q: @ItsSimplyGaby Is there anything that you could say about the Leo/Sammy thing in MoA?

A: No spoilers. Sorry! But it will be explained in MoA

Q: @maisumamariana_The Heroes of Olympus is going to have how many books?
A: Five.
Q: @HermioneMila When is Annabeth’s birthday?

A: I don’t know. I’ve never had a reason to determine it, at least not yet.

Q: @OlympusTributes what happened to Calypso?

A: She will make an appearance later in the Heroes series. Right now, that’s all I can say

Q: @JoshuaDanielss Out of the characters in the HoO, which is your favorite to write about?

A: Gleeson Hedge. He cracks me up. Also Leo.

Q: @im_a_halfblood Are you planning on writing another Camp Half-Blood series?

A: Like I said, that’s waaaay far in the future, but some day, I’d like to do 1 more CHB series where all the action actually happens at camp, b/c most of the other books happen on quests. That’s part of the story that hasn’t been told, & would be fun. But like I said, that’s way, way in the future, so don’t hold your breath.

Q: (got buried) Any characters based on real life?

A: Yeah. Mrs. Dodds is a real math teacher, but she’s not actually a monster.  Mr. Brunner (aka Chiron) is a real Latin teacher. Travis & Connor Stoll, Beckendorf, Miranda & Nico are named for former students of mine.

Q: @jvolr I heard a rumor that Thalia will die in The Mark of Athena, you confirm?

A: I can confirm that you shouldn’t listen to rumors.

Q: @OnlyDemigods_Hi Uncle Rick, what’s your favorite character from the Percy Jackson?

A: Grover or Tyson. They’re so fun to write about.

Q: @helloandie Have you ever cried while writing?

A: Only because the first draft is so bad and my deadline is so close. 😀  No, actually I got teary-eyed when I wrote one scene in Mark of Athena, and no, I can’t tell you what it was. Yes, I know that’s mean.

Q: @Jackieromano199 after the TitansCurse, Annabeth and Percy’s Grey streaks are never mentioned…shouldn’t someone question them?

A: Actually that question will be addressed in Mark of Athena.

Q: Someone (sry got buried) asked what’s my favorite ship in my books.

A: The Argo II. Oh . . . not that kind of ship?

Q: @kklorman2 Who would you rather have: Festus or Blackjack?

A: At the risk of hurting Blackjack’s feelings, Festus for sure.

Q: @TheNightCountry why is the book cover art different from the UK and the USA versions?

A: different publishers make diff. covers.  The thinking is UK kids r attracted to different cover art than US kids. *shrug* Each publisher has final say over the cover in that country.

You’ll notice that the humor in his writing only comes naturally due to his humor in some of his answers.  You’ll be able to see more of it in the rest of his questions, which you can read on his blogsite here.

FACT: Logan Lerman loves watching White Collar

He also states that this might just be because of the fact that Alexandra Daddario (Annabeth) is in it.
