~!*WARNING*!~
~!*MAJOR SPOILER ALERT*!~


Okay, so I did kinda like Jason at first, but in MoA, he really irritated me. Let me tell you why.

Exhibit A:
Setting: New Rome, Senate House.
Situation: Our very bright Jason decides to ask Reyna if he can show his girlfriend around the city.
My thoughts: WAY TO GO, SMART ONE.
That’s a great way to say hello to your almost-girlfriend/fellow praetor you haven’t seen in months. WE GOT A GENIUS OVER HERE.

Exhibit B:
Setting: The Argo II.
Situation: Making promises to Piper.
My thoughts: Seriously? –facepalm- The last line of that prophecy was, An oath to keep with a final breath…
He could’ve just sealed his fate. Very smart.

Exhibit C:
Setting: Hercules’ Island.
Situation: Mentioning Hera.
My thoughts: Oh. My. God. Really, Jason? No, just no. In the wise words of moi,

OCTAVIAN

My name is Octavian. I'm eighteen, and I'm Camp Jupiter's augur. Which means I cut up useless teddy bears and read the will of the gods.
I'm scrawny and pale; and a descendant of Apollo.

I sighed as I walked into Jupiter's Temple, ready to murder the teddy bears that must have nightmares about me. Or so the rumors say.

I grumbled, not in a very good mood as I grabbed some random pink teddy bear. You see, I don't just read the messages from the Roman gods in the stuffing of innocent bears; they talk to me. And I am not going crazy. Almost all the augurs have that kinda power.
Anyway, just as I grabbed the teddy bear, a voice in my head shouted, "No, don't do this to me Octavian! I am your...mother?"

My eyes widened, and I muttered, "Mom?"

The teddy bear rolled it's eyes sarcastically. "No, I'm just a teddy bear! Of course I'm your mother you dumb@$$!"

Okay, first of all many say that Jason is just a copy of Percy and snob and selfish. And many others sad that they were like each other. I've never been a fan of Jason and i dont like him very much either, but i don hate him. I agree that he is just like Percy in ways. That is probably because of their fathers since theyre both one of the big three and theyre also like each other too. Jason and Percy are really like each other in many ways if we think of it. They both care about their friends, they both have the spirit of a leader, they both are very brave, they both work so hard to save their friends and the world etc. But what i want to mention is Percy was more like a normal person. He had his mistakes, his wrong choices, his stupid decisions and acts, his careless attempts etc. Jason also did the same things but it was never mentioned as much as Percy's mistakes were. I feel like this probably because o rad more about Percy and so less about Jason. But i want to say that Percy was usually told to be handsome and like a leader and etc. his vices were told to him very often and mentioned most of the time. When i tead about Jason he was always considered to be disturbingly...

(HEYYYY umm this is a songfic about the percyxannabeth reunion(: The song really fits. This is a continuation from the mark of athena official chapter 1. Oh and please read the lyrics or listen to it first if you haven't. Enjoy~)

(Verse 1)
Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave
How can I love when I'm afraid
To fall
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt
Suddenly goes away somehow

One step closer

(Chorus)
I have died everyday
waiting for you
Darlin' don't be afraid
I have loved you for a
Thousand years
I'll love you for a
Thousand more

(Verse 2)
Time stands still
beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything
Take away
What's standing in front of me
Every breath,
Every hour has come to this

One step closer

Tomorrow is April fools day.... Connor and Travis's favorite day of the year. And this is the first year they are spending April fools day at Camp in 2 years. This is also Percy's first April fools day with the Strolls around. Everyone else at camp knows its bad to be at camp on April fools day with the Strolls around. No matter who warned Percy about the Strolls, he didn't believe they are that good at April fools day! So he just ignored it and went on with his normal activity's.

Tomorrow is April 1st, and Connor and Travis have something big planned out for Percy.

Aphrodite cabin told Percy about the time when Connor and Travis painted their cabin puck green, took all their clothes and replaced them with Nurses outfits, (that don't go with ANYTHING, as they say) and worst of all took their makeup and replaced it with paint that looked like their makeup. Lets just say they looked like clowns for weeks.

Annabeth, Percy's girlfriend, and her cabin told Percy about the time the Strolls glued their desks to the roof, moved everything out of its place (because you know how the Athena cabin is with keeping everything in the right place) and...

Rick Riordan is the best-selling author of Percy Jackson and the Olympians and The Kane Chronicles, as well as the Tres Navarre mysteries for adults. His latest series, The Heroes of Olympus, is a sequel to the Percy Jackson books told from the perspectives of seven different demigods. The Mark of Athena, the third book in The Heroes of Olympus series, brings together the characters from the first two installments — The Lost Hero and The Son of Neptune — on a quest to defeat the earth mother Gaea. The best part? Annabeth, who’s been around since the days of The Lightning Thief, will finally get her say. Riordan took the time to speak with EW about his newest book — and why his wife and kids are his best editors. When you’re done reading the interview, check out the exclusive book trailer for The Mark of Athena below.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: My dad told me to tell you that you have big kids among your fans too. He wants to know if there will be another Tres Navarre novel.

The Tale of Cupid and Psyche

Once upon a time there was a king with three daughters, all were lovely, but the youngest named Psyche, excelled her sisters in beauty so much that she seemed like a goddess. The fame of her beauty spread far and wide and soon many people came to worship her. Meanwhile the real goddess of love, Venus (Aphrodite) became neglected as fewer people came to her temples to make offerings and pay her homage.

Venus grew jealous of Psyche and turned to her son Cupid (Eros) for help. She told Cupid to go and shoot Psyche with an arrow as to make her fall in love with the most vile and horrible creature on the earth. Cupid took up his bow and arrow, flew earthward, had one look at Psyche and was lost. No victim of his gold arrows was more deeply in love than he.

While everyone worshipped and admired Psyche, her beauty was so awesome that men were fearful to express their longing and desire for her or make plain their sentiments. Both her sisters though less lovely than Psyche had gotten married. So...

Love is a wild emotion, unbound by the limits of time and space, beyond control of even its mistress Aphrodite, and unpredictable in its coming and goings. The fact that it's not a logical emotion is what annoys Annabeth Chase the most about it.

For she, a Daughter of Athena, has no patience to deal with the flighty and terrible fancies of love. There is no proper formula to follow, no blueprint for its construction, no vision of future success, and certainly no solution when love doesn't work out. Annabeth's too rational and cool headed to believe what the Aphrodite Cabin says about love being the force behind all things in life. Things might be all sunshine and wildflower fields in Silena Beauregard's world, but Annabeth knows the truth.

Love is a hideous, unfeeling creature that feeds off the misery of demi-gods and mortals alike. It hurts and breaks people's hearts, manipulates their thoughts, and has been the cause of war, death and strife. Whole civilizations have fallen to its power, and the present looks back in shame before repeating the same mistakes.

Heyo! Okay, so FATM is my absolute favorite band, so here ya go.

ENJOY :D


Heavy in Your Arms

I lay there, bleeding, battered, and bruised, on the cold marble floor. My head was cradled in Percy's lap.

I'm so heavy...

I stared into his eyes. His perfect eyes, trying to capture them in this moment, so I'd never forget them.

Heavy,

"You can't leave me," his voice cracked.

Heavy in your arms.

His tears cut through the grime on his face.

I'm so heavy...

Battle raged all around us.

Heavy,

"I'm sorry," I croaked.

Heavy in your arms.

I felt myself slipping away.

"Goodbye, Percy..."



"WHO DID THIS?" Jason screamed.

He looked down at his beloved Reyna, now cold and lifeless, in a heap on the dirt. The was a large stab wound in her back, but the hole in Jason's heart was a hundred times bigger.

Hello my fellow friends, not friends, and people I don't know!!! I'm bored!! And I was listening to music on my phone when this song came on!!! I love the song! Its by Taylor Swift and its called Enchanted!!! I love it so I did this!!! Enjoy!!!
___________________________________________________________________

There I was again tonight
Forcing laughter, faking smiles
Same old tiered lonely place

Walls of insincerity
Shifting eyes and vacancy
Vanished when I saw your face

All I can say is it was enchanting to meet you

You eyes whisper, "Have we met?"
Across the room your silhouette
Starts to make its way to me
The playful conversation starts
Counter all your quick remarks
Like passing notes in secrecy

And it was enchanting to meet you
All I can say is I was enchanted to meet you

This night is sparkling, don't you let it go

Ahh screw it. I'm gonna keep this short and really simple. Unlike my monstrosity articles that go on for pages and pages.

First, to kill off theories on Leo Valdez and Sammy Valdez.

1.) SAMMY VALDEZ IS NOT REINCARNATED AS LEO VALDEZ. Simple explanation as to why, because the math doesn't work out. Aye, que caramba! It doesn't! And LEO ISN'T SAMMY. GODDAMNITPEOPLE They are two totally different people. There's gonna be some huge twist over how they are related/not related. But they aren't reincarnated, and the only thing I see that might work is that Leo is Sammy's grandson. But that seems to obvious. So Rick will TROLOLOLOL the whole way through the whole thing and TROLLLLLLLLLLOLOL.

2.) LEO DID NOT STAY IN THE LOTUS HOTEL AND CASINO/ nor did Hera put him to sleep like Percy for eight months (except for him it would be like...70 years lul)- Why? Well, not to be just picking out random facts, but Leo is too up-to-date with modern technology. He knows to much crap. Also, he mentioned in The Demigod Diaries in The Quest for Buford (the table...he's a weird kid...) that his mom liked the band- The Rolling Stones. The band was...

ok. here are some of the ideas i got off of the internet about the whole leo/ sammy valdez thing.
1.leo is sammys grandson on his moms side.
2.leo is sammy reborn from elysium.
3.sammy got stuck in the lotus casino and some how his name changed to leo.
4.leo slept for half a decde like percy did for eight months.
5. as sammy, leo changed his name as he moved around to keep hidden.
6. gaea created an illusion on hazel to make her think leo is sammy.
7.leo is sammys long lost brother.
8. sammy is hephestus in disguise.
9.sammy is a son of hephaestus that was never claimed and leo and him both have mothers from the same family
10.hephaestus loved leos mother so much that he granted her a longer life... in the forties and she is leo AND sammys mom.
i hope these were helpful! angel signing off. percy geeks unite! annabeth cant die! i think nico does die. THE END BEFORE I START RAMBLING ABOUT EACH AND EVERY ONE OF MY OPINIONS ON THE MARK OF ATHENA@!!!! K BYE

Yeah, another one. I said I'd do this one soon! Yes, that counts for a couple minutes later.
So, have we all seen the tehmazing cover for the newest book? Yeah, I'm betting you have.
Weeeeeeell, let's break it down. Title, Background picture, and Main picture.

Title: The Mark of Athena

Well, this is a flashback to The Son of Neptune! Why, Ella, you predicted the next book! This is obviously a reference to the Daughter of Athena prophecy. No biggie. But, be quick to note that this is the Greek form. Definetly Annabeth.

Main Picture

Jason and Percy really hit it off! Eh, no. Erm, the swords aren't helping. The violent swinging isn't either. Or your gamefaces. Jeez, these two know how to make nice. Note the sarcasm there. This picture could possibly state Hera's plan is an epic failure, or Percy and Jason develop anger issues. Which requires they dramatically swing swords in a deadly motion while riding a demigodlyish horse. I don't think Hera would appreciate her plan being ruined because somebody got mad. Or, this might not state a direct fight between the two, it could take a fight between both camps....

Hey, who's excited for The Mark of Athena!? *random crowd people shout and wave character flags*
Where did you get those? Nevermind. Well, this is Blitz here, ready to help interpret the words of Phoebus Apollo's Oracle of Delphi! *Rachel fans cheer*
Yeah, she's amazing, yadddayadddayaddda. Okay, so this new prophecy appeared at the end of the Last Olympian, as spoken by Rachel Elizabeth Dare. She jacks Blackjack, blah blah, is the oracle, more blah blah, and BANG! New prophecy! Well, let's hear it! :

Seven half-bloods must answer the call
To storm or fire the world must fall
An oath to keep with a final breath
And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.

What did ya think of it? *crowd blabbers*
Ummmm, yeah. I agree. Maybe. Depends on what you said. Now that we have enough books to guess, enough extras, and the trailer to The Mark of Athena, We're gonna try to interpret this. Yep, interpretation. *crowd fist pumps*

Parts: Chapter I - Chapter X

Genre: Humor, Adventure, FANNFIICCTTIOIONNN (says in high opera voice and breaks windows)

Characters: Piper McLean, Leo Valdez, and various other faces...

Disclaimer: Me no own. Uncle Rick does! Wooo! We love you!

A/N- This takes place right as The Last Olympian is going on, but those months before The Lost Hero. Okeey dokey? :D Also I didn't put this in the forum is because there simply was too few chapters to waste and entire posting. So I'm doing it in articles. :D

CHP I: You are here! :D
Next: To be uploaded sooner rather than later!


Summary: Before the war started- before they met- before Jason...before Leo and Piper’s lives had been changed forever.

LEO can’t seem to escape his past. No matter how far or how fast he runs, it always catches back up to him. After being caught by the border patrol in New Mexico, the court sends him to a “delinquent disciplinary recovery school” to modify and fix his troubled behavior. Leo knows he’s not going to...

The Lost Hero is the beginning of a new adventure, with the lost hero Jason we get a new perspective of the Demigod world. We also learn of how the Gods can help save the world. We also learn of how this connects with the previous series as Jason and his army scaled and destroyed Mount Othyr. With this more of the Demigod lives past are revealed starting with the finding of Bunker 9. As the three heroes battle their enemies, we also find out about the mortals from the myths. As we have two new demigod child (Leo and Piper) we get the idea of the powers of other Gods. The Lost Hero is truly a great start to a brand new adventurer



The Son of Neptune is my favourite book of both series. The way Rick Riordan teases us by slowly giving out the history of our heroes got me itching for me. The way he write makes the character seem to real, as I read I felt as if I was with them. He gave us a new view on the Gods, their Roman side. It helps us understand the Gods and their history. The appearance of Gaea at times gives the impression that she might act but she didn't. As our hero...

Percy and Annabeth during the Titan war. :3
Percy P.o.V
-------------------------------------------------------------
I held Annabeth in my arms, seeing her eyes watering. I smoothed back her dirty blonde curls, looking at her dulling gray eyes, my heart breaking.

I remember tears streaming down your face
When I said, "I'll never let you go"
When all those shadows almost killed your light
I remember you said, "Don't leave me here alone"
But all that's dead and gone and passed tonight...

I picked her up gently, taking her to the couch and laying her on my lap softly. I kissed her forehead gently, murmuring gentle things to her.

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound

[i]"Percy..." Annabeth said, her voice weak. Her eyes fluttered open to look at me.

What if Piper and Jason had a huge fight in the middle of the Quest of the Seven and broke up? I bet this is how Piper would feel after it.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Piper stared after Jason, her tears flowing down her cheeks, showing all her emotions. His words circled in her head, threatening her saneness.
She slid down the door, softly crying.

I remember when we broke up the first time
Saying, "This is it, I've had enough," 'cause like
We hadn't seen each other in a month
When you said you needed space. (What?)

Piper barely saw him on the Argo II, even though they've been on it for a while. Then he comes and says that?
Piper took a deep breath as a sob threatened to break free from her chest.

[b]Then you come around again and say
"Baby, I miss you and I swear I'm gonna change, trust me."
Remember how that lasted for a day?

Title: Running Out of Time
Type: Fanfiction/Songfic -- Oneshot.
Rating: T
Disclaimer: Rick Riordan owns all characters. "Running Out of Time" is a song by Barlowgirl. Es Muy bien!

Link to song: link
--------------------------------------------------------


We are not blind
We know the truth

The demigods knew the truth, the seven knew they had to save the world. The fate of all other nations depended on their shoulders. The oblivious mortals below them wouldn’t realize doomsday was upon them until too late...

Still we don't stand
Still we don't choose

“We have to stick to the plan.” Jason commanded him. Percy snarled at him.
“We need to go back for Annabeth.”
“Percy, we can’t just-”
Percy shoved past him, the decision still not made, nothing done or chosen.

"everyone appear " roared Zeus . One by one evryone appeared and before the even finished appearing the fight's had already started in the following way - Poseidon Vs Athena who were fighting about whose better . Posiedon was splashing huge at Athena while she ran at him with a sword . Next pair was Aphrodite and Artemis , they were fighting about love , artemis was against it . it was basically a cat fight Artemis as sitting on Aphrodites shoulders and pulling her hair and then there were Ares and Apollo who were fighting for fun [obviously].


"enough"screamed Zeus and the whole room shook, with thunder

"are you not gods taht you're behaving like children ? actually why not be children ?exclaimed Zeus with a british accent

" Awesome joke , zeus ! " said Hermes who appeared just a moment ago
As Zeus stared at Hermes he turned towards Athena and asked " seriously ? " . " You are'nt joking are you ? '' said Athena staring at Zeus .

JF44/CT here. Now I know I am not R.R but for some reason Taylor Swift is making me think on how the MoA could end(Yes I listen to Taylor Swift. She is a good singer/song writer).

#1: Jason and Piper could break up. Now of course the relationship is a short one, but not all relationships last long. They could have a few sparks and then break up.


#2: NO HATERS ON THIS ONE! Annabeth goes to the dark side. Though this is highly unlikely and defiantly unexpected.


#3: Frank kisses Hazel. For all those Frazel fans, probably what your expected.

#4: Thalia dies. Hunters of Artemis can die. In battle. Zoe(Can't do the two dots) did die. Who says Thalia can't die.


#5: Leo confronts Hazel asks her about why she stares at him confusedly. Hazel tells him and ends with. "Are you Sammy?"



#6:AGAIN NO HATERS ON THIS ONE! Percy and Annabeth break up. Gaea posses or has someone to posses Annabeth or Percy.

I was walking around. Board. As I was walking past the Athena cabin, Annabeth came out. She look embarrassed. Wonder why.... she walked in front of me, got on one knee, and said "Percy Jackson, I love you, so will u marry me?" What the FUCK!!!! She looked back down in embarrassment but she would look up once in a while. I was shocked and scared for life. I mean terrified! I mean I love Annabeth and but GODS! I was lost for words. I fainted. Simple as that, I fainted. I woke up with a big shock. When I say shock I mean Thaila zapped me and man did it hurt! I noticed I was wet but I fixed that easy.

"What the hell!" I shout when I wake up.

"Dude are you ok?" Nico asks while laughing a little.

"Um, yea. Where's Annabeth?" I ask

"Right here Seaweed Brain." I look over and saw a golden haired princess.

"Did that really happen?"

"What? Me asking you to marry me? Yes." I get wide eyed "Don't worry Seaweed Brain! I was playing truth or dare in my cabin."

The False Doors-- our Egyptian doors for death to pass through. Image credit: Various sites on Google Images, meaning, I forgot where. ._.
I went through the Doors of Death today.

Okay, I didn’t really. So don’t worry, I’m not dead. Nor am I using the free Wifi in the Underworld (Thanatos hogs it with his fancy iPad...meanie) thanks to...my extremely obnoxious friends.

But I’m not here to talk about my weird friends with lots of issues. I came to intertwine series. And give some new ideas to the Doors of Death.

Let’s start very beginningly-ish with The Lost Hero. Well, I’ll start with the END of the Lost Hero actually. The part where Jason died? Oh yeah. He died. Like, really actually dead. But why is he still alive? :O The Doors of Death were still open. Meaning, if The Lost Hero happened after The Son of Neptune (Haha, but that would be in the wrong order hhahaha) then Jason would have remained dead and Hera’s plan to unite would have gone null. Thanatos would have collected poor Jason’s young soul and we all would have watched the world end. :D (Why a smiley face? He is coming to take your children o_o RUUUNNNN!!!)

We know nothing about her!
I want to know if people have any theories.
So, I shall ask some unanswered questions..
..unless they have been answered already, and I've just forgotten.. xD
These questions could possibly be answered in the next 3 books. ;)

So here are the questions:

1. Who was Reyna's father, and why was she at Circe's Island and not with him?

Bellona had two children from the same man, so maybe it's normal for Roman demigods...
I think he could've died when they were children, so Bellona sent them to Circe's Island.
...Or maybe their father had arrived at Circe's Island when Hylla and Reyna were children, then he got turned into a guinea pig and the two children were taken care of by Circe and her staff.

2. How did she know Bellona was her mother?
(Side question too- how do you think Roman demigods get claimed?)

I don't think they get claimed like the Greeks. I mean, how would've Hylla known what a glowing symbol above her head meant, when she never went to Camp.
