Reasons why me and Abby's friendship is super cool. (guest post)

The awesome Abby asked me to post a guest list this week. But since Monday I've been incredibly engrossed in the Heroes of Olympus books. She texted me today and asked if I was still gonna do it. I replied with, "OHMYGOSH YES I'LL GET ON THAT WOW". Good books have a way of making me forget everything else.

1. We talk about Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus a lot. It's fantastic. Last month, for about a week, we didn't text about anything else. That was the best.

2. We argue over which one of us should be Leo Valdez's girlfriend in Abby's fanfiction. (We kind of decided to leave it, because we couldn't make a decision.)

3. We text every day. Which is super fun. Every morning I wait to hear the familiar "ding-ding" of her text tone. Or sometimes I text first. Whatever.

3. We both adore Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit. We went to see The Hobbit together... in costume. And we talked about it for the next two weeks. We do still text about it often enough, but lately Percy Jackson has been more of a trending topic.

4. She was one of the people who got me to read the Percy Jackson books. So... there's that.

5. We had known each other vaguely for a few years, but it wasn't until last year at summer camp that we actually became friends. I'm not sure how it really happened, but last fall we started texting. All. the. time. When I think about it, we've only seen each other in person, like, 3 times since summer camp. But we ARE planning a get-together this summer, with lots of movie marathons.

6. We compare lists with eachother. So, I'll text, "List the Heroes of Olympus from least favorite to most favorite." Our top three were exactly the same: "3. Annabeth Chase. 2. Percy Jackson. 1. Leo Valdez." Or we'll list our favorite Disney movies, or LOTR couples, or, well, I can't think of the others right now. But it's fun.

7. We love the same things... but disagree about 70% of them. She loves Boromir. I dislike him. Her favorite book in The Chronicles of Narnia is The Last Battle, while it's my least favorite. She runs with her brother. I will never, ever, EVER be a runner. So, we've had some pretty good arguments.

8. Once we were trying to describe Pan's voice(in Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan), and she said she always thought of Liam Neeson's voice. I was typing in "maybe not so rich and deep", and at the exact moment that I sent it, she sent, "Except maybe even more full & rich." We had a good laugh over that one.

9. She has a really great sense of humor. And she's adorable.

10. She accepts me when I'm in an aggressive/strange/annoying mood. Seriously. One day I was feeling snarky and sarcastic and like I wanted to bite people (figuratively), so we just texted all morning and she made me laugh a lot. She's cool like that.

Abby... you're really awesome. And I like you a lot. <3
