Nico di Angelo is fourteen when he realizes that he’s fighting for a hopeless cause. He is sixteen when the inevitable finally comes.
The sky is an endless stream of smoke and ash and pollution that has clouded what was once a beautiful scenery many, many years ago. It’s a view that Nico has grown accustomed to, since the very beginning, and there’s something oddly comforting about knowing that there’s a constant in his life that doesn’t involve running and hiding and killing. It’s all he needs to give in to the arms that are reaching to him from the other side.
There’s been an alluring presence of something calling out to him for a long time now, and he’s resisted it, just slipping past its fingertips every time. It’s a never-ending battle he’s fought for as long as he can remember—but he isn’t sure why he even continues to defy the natural or

I was heading to Bunker Nine to see Leo, as usual. I was carrying the usual thing: a book, a bag of Cheeto Puffs, and a couple of Cokes. Outside food was against the rules, but I knew a kid in the Hermes cabin who could sneak all sorts of stuff in for a couple of golden drachmas.
When I got to Bunker Nine, I saw that Leo was in the lit forge cleaning it out, his entire body was engulfed in flames. Just an average Tuesday in the life of Leo Valdez.
"Howzit Leo?" I yelled, hoping to be heard over the roar of the flames. "I hope you like Cheetos cause–AAAAH!”
The fire around Leo had died out, revealing him to be only in his boxers shorts (that I may or may not have gotten a good look of).
I cupped my hands over my eyes, and everything in my arms spilled onto the floor. A coke exploded and started to spray all over the place. "Dude!"
Leo didn't seem to notice. "What's wrong with–"
BubblesPercy loved blowing bubbles when he was little. His mother always took him to parks and watched him play.Bubbles by prcbthshpr
One evening, when Percy was blowing bubbles at a park, a little girl saw him. She went to ask him,"Can I play too?" Percy looked into her stormy grey eyes and nodded. The little girl smiled.
They played for an hour, blowing bubbles non-stop. They even had a bubble-blowing contest, the person who blew more bubbles in a minute wins. Percy won and the little girl glared at him, but somehow little Percy had the nerve to laugh.
When Percy's mother was about to take him home, Percy shook hands with the little girl and asked,"What's your name?" The little girl replied,"Annabeth."
Godly Parent Help!I need help figuring out my friends godly parents! I was wondering if any of you guys could help! (also i'm just doing this for fun XD)Godly Parent Help! by bellatoria-rose
Here I shoot- (I want different godly parents for each of them, please!- I am already the daughter of Apollo) (Also, Roman parents are OK just like Greek parents!)
My first friend, Makayla, is a major fan of the PJO+HOO series (like me) and is VERY innocent. She looks like an 8 year old even though she is 14 (like me!). She has dirty blonde hair in a bob with pink highlights. She has blue eyes and pale skin. (Maybe Hebe for her?)
My second friend, Alexis, likes cats and has a passion for helping other people and healing. She wants to be a surgeon when she grows up. She has dark brown straight hair, brown eyes, tan skin and glasses. She is interested in law, justice, and order. (I was thinking Zeus for her!)
My third friend, Tabby, ships everyone she thinks is cute (like me) and usually everyone she ships actually becomes a thing. O.O
She has short curl
