And, let’s face it, Carter wasn’t being a peach. He was embarrassed and moody and mistrusting Percy, and he, too, was slightly hostile.
But, you know, it wasn’t Percy’s best behavior, but it was far from being note worthy. He was in the middle of a dangerous situation and this unfriendly stranger may or may not be the cause of it, so so he reacted accordingly. They parted on good terms, after.
here’s a funny thing on The Son of Sobek: when Percy goes after carter thinking he’s a monster, he goes ‘so, you must be another monster escaped through the Doors of Death’.
BUT, he couldn’t have know that. he doesn’t go back to Camp Half Blood after leaving Camp Jupiter, so the story has to take place before he lost his memories. but, if i’m not tragically mistaken, they only find out about the Doors of Death during The Lost Hero. Percy is no great authority in mithology, as we know, so he wasn’t supposed to know what the Doors of death even were
the epilogue on Clockwork Princess hurts, then it gets better, then i remember the beginning and it hurts again
“‘But I knew what I would lose,’ he said. ‘Once you understood my music. Now you look at me as though you do not know me at all. As though you never loved me.’”
I didn’t know I had these feeling until they hurt: a biography by me
