Aaaaaagh! - The Phantom Librarian — LiveJournal
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
I'm listening to Blood of Olympus.

Big goof. Huge. Dakota flat out says he can't drive -- never learned. And is 17 at that point, making him only one year older than Jason.

I now have to figure out how to make Dakota lose a year and forget that he can drive.

Well, you could go the godly parent intervention route like Thalia got--turn him into a tree (or a grapevine might be more appropriate) and halt his aging. It could conveniently come with a memory-wipe of his driving skills if that got them into trouble at some point! :)

I think I know what could could cause it and why something might happen, but I can't figure out how the mechanism works, or why losing some particular skill set would be an effect of it.

Maybe he's lying? Maybe he's a December baby?

I think the age can work -- if he's a year and half old than Jason, or even almost two years, he could easily still be seventeen the summer of BoO, since Jason turns sixteen on July 1. I'm just annoyed at myself for forgetting the entire Jules-Albert sequence.
