There are a lot of people who accuse Rick Riordan of ripping Harry Potter in his series Percy Jackson and the Olympians. After all, the two stories have a lot of similarities. But they also have some interesting differences.
One of my favorite things about the Percy Jackson world is the leeway fanfiction authors have with original characters and minor characters. One of the things I have the most fun with is what powers other characters from other cabins would have. So, instead of letting the ideas keep bouncing around in my head, I decided to make a list:
If it wasn't for the prophecy, there is a good chance Harry wouldn't have been a part of Voldemort's demise at all, though he no doubt would have fought against him. What makes him so special, so much more vital than the other students who fought Voldemort was the prophecy.
