Blue Trident is an
website dedicated to Rick Riordan's children's fantasy series, Percy
Jackson and the Olympians, and the sequel series, The Heroes of
In the Beginning...
In 2005, a bored 17 year-old girl decided
to start a fan website for the Percy Jackson and the Olympians
series. So she e-mailed author Rick Riordan to ask his permission, which
he kindly gave, and she got to work building the website. Unfortunately it
didn't look as good as she'd hoped, so she deleted it and pushed the idea
to the back of her mind. After the second book in the series was released
she decided to try again, plus she needed something to keep her occupied
seeing as her exams had finished and she was waiting to go to university.
So, on the 12th July 2006, Blue Trident was uploaded for the first time
onto the Internet for all to see. And it's still online
