To delay this all a bit more, you can check out last week's Friday Couple, here.
All righty, where was I? Oh yeah, Leo and Calypso. Aw, I'm sorry, they're just so cute.
From what we've seen thus far, Calypso is sweet and considerate. She's been exiled to an island where she remains alone until the Olympians deign to send her a demigod hero who can't stay but whom she also can't help but love. Despite all of this and every broken promise, she remains helpful and kind.
Leo is the kid who has always been forgotten or underestimated. For about as long as he can remember, he's been told over and over again that he can't be successful in whatever it is he chooses to do. But Leo remains loyal and determined. If anyone can and will keep their promise to Calypso, it's definitely him.
I'll be honest, guys, I ship Leo & Calypso so hard. I mean, Leo deserves a kind, beautiful girl. He's a nice guy.
I never really have jumped on any boats supporting Leo and any other female in The Heroes of Olympus. But they are positively cute and perfect. He makes her smile and even gives her a bit of a hard time, which I think is good for Calypso. He doesn't push it but he teases her. Calypso presents clear but not unreasonable boundaries though. Plus, she's willing to see beyond the scrawniness.
We all know Leo isn't the big buff guy you usually expect in a hero but he has the bravery and courage. Leo also likes to joke around, which is probably another thing Calypso needs in her life.
I don't really care that Calypso is immortal because honestly, I think she's one of those people who would stick by Leo until death, no matter how frail he becomes. I want this to happen, people. I freakin' ship this couple maybe even more than I do Jason and Piper (my favorite couple in the series).
