The Heroes of Olympus The Son of Neptune

HecateA posted on Oct 28, 2010 at 12:36AM
So once again you guys have the opportunity to get in my head of what I think the next HoO book RR blesses us with will look like.

Before I start you peoples off, I need to say something.
So shush and listen.

When I wrote "The Lost Hero, written by me", I had to guess who the parents were. Well now, I know. So I am following Rick Riordan's version of the characters. Piper has nothing to do with Persephone, Jason and Thalia are siblings and Camp Ceasar Salad is real. For my series of fanfics, I'm following my version of the characters, but here, Rick's versions rule. Get it?

Title: The Son of Neptune
Rating: C
Type: Adventure, friendship, hopefully humor, maybe a touch of romance
Characters: Add, Annabeth, Jason, Piper, Drew, Leo, Jake, Nyssa
OC personalities: Reyna, Dakota, Hazel, Gwen, Bobby, Caleb
OC: The Gayle brothers, Karren
Synopsis: After discovering a new world, not so far from their own, Jason and his friends are sailing straight for it, unsure wheter they'll come out victorious or just start a civil war. But it doesn't take the arrival of a flying boat to get the citizens curious. They already sence something is wrong, way before the flying ship docks.

Disclaimer: The story base, character and settings base was created by Rick Riordan, who owns the Percy Jackson and the Olympians, and Heroes of Olympus rights.

A/N: Hopefully you guys will like it! I got some very nice comments on my random wall poll, so here it is guys! Love you all, you rock!

The Honour in Death's debut: link

The Fire's Revenge's debut: link

Part Two's debut: link

Ahhhhh wait... nobody told me that a new chapter was up... gosh...
THAT WAS STINKIN' AMAZING!!!!! Holy Pluto!!!!! I love it
I found it really funny when Renya like attacked (not really attacked but you know what I mean...)
just imagine what was gong threw her head... "Ok so... i am going to check if he has the achillies heal... if he does not... I could cut his arm off... worth a try..." SMACK "Ok... good... because if he didn't I would have alot of explaining to do..."
And yes Hecate "The Harry Potter of writing..."
Only because you are awesome... yah... being awesome is awesome... because awesome is awesome... if that makes any sense
In my mind there is no bigger compliment then being called awesome so yah... you deserve it
I really hope you could write more...

GODS HECATE!!!!!!!!!You are like,GIFTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(Hands a huge present)(If you celebrate it.)I have some questions_____________________________> How are Annabeth,Jason,Piper,Leo going to find him if he's somewhere else? Won't it be breaking a heart if one of the girls fall for "Add"(Percy)? IF Jason was dating Reyna,and likes Piper,who will he choose? By the way,you are by far the best of all the websites I've looked up on: The Son Of Neptune,one of said; the gods will die???????????(That was not spaming,just a theory) You are amazing I might go to Hades,Keep up the Good work!!!! -Aphrodite123

@aphrodite123- i prefer piper cuz we dnt exactly know what the romans are like but it would be like Percy falling in love with another chick while he has no memory of annabeth and then having to choose between them so it could go either way :) and i'm really hoping the gods dont die :) also i agree this is by far the one of the best websites for Son of Neptune :D And if someone messes with percabeth im NOT going to be happy :)

Apollos roman name is Apollo.
over a year ago redhawks said…
Yes, Apollo is Apollo in both world. Whoever said it might be Helios is wrong. (I'm too lazy to scroll up.) Helios is a completly serparte god. He was the son god before Apollo but gave up his poistion for Apollo. I'm not quite sure what happened to him after.

Ok, people (specifically Greekrules) I know this is the best story. But please refrain from putting advertisments of other peoples fan fic. This is Hecate's only. Now please stop. Right now.

Oh, and Greekrules........Please don't get mad. We are just trying to compliment her. Plus do you know RR or what he would do?? No, I don't think so, so you can't say what RR would do or not.

T'was the night before Christmas and all through the house; not a creature was stirring not even a mousse, the stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St-Nicholas, soon would be there.

Happy Holidays to everyone, no matter which one it is! So yes, I did promise a holiday super-pack, didn't I? Well, here you have it. Now tommorow, I'll be busy the whole day, so its out today. You've got 1 for Christmas, 1 for any other holiday, and 1 for Friday. Now all you math geniuses out there must be squeeling like little girls if you love theese as much as your comments say.

Once again; VOTE! I'll post my add again: I'm helping promote an event called the Fan Fiction awards. What it is, is for a couple of categories, people go on and nomminate their favorite fanfiction, and then there's a vote to get people in the final 10, final 3 and MUCHO WINNER!!!

I'm proud to say I got nominated twice, for this fic, and the Lost Hero written by me. *heart fluters insanely*. You people read fanfic; so go get 'em, help your contestant move forwards! Many familair fics! Over the Mountain, Immortal links, Olivia the Hlaf-Blood, Nakamura twins, Time is running out, Lost Hero, Son of Neptune, GO!! You have until the 28th to make sure your favorite fanfiction gets to the top 10, top 3 and then MUCHO WINNER.
link

There is also year's best writter, and I got nominated for that one too, and somehow I'm leading (?) I dont know when that ends, you'll ahve to talk to goddessoflife who organised this. Again with the familiar faces, Amphirite, goddessoflife, redhawks, Idunn, lightning, me, go!!!!
link

Oh yeah, I'm proud to the brim saying I'm still leading for favorite writter! Thank you to all who voted, to other contestants good luck, to the rest I hope your nominee classes well, and to the confused click on a link I promise it wont kill you.

@barogr - You'll love how I'm planning that-just hear me out (ear ear! Sorry, went to see HP7 AGAIN. And it was awesome. AGAIN. And I have new respect for my mom "I wont ever look at chandeliers without thinking of Dobby ever again". That's her, I love her!)
@aphroditeskid - Poseidon is on strict orders. He doesn't have the rebellious streak of Hera or the stuborness of Athena (Athenians dont shoot me, I never said it was bad!)
@lightning, redwhawks (and everybody else wondering)- Reyna, althought a lot different from her brothers, still acts rashly sometimes. But her mom is goddess of war, she's like a bloodhound when it comes to weaponry and advantages in battle, its just who she is. And Achilles' curse is first to pop up in her head.
And the Harry Potter of writting... I walked around my face like this -> :DDD the whole day. My relatives thought I was paralised.
@Greekrules - Not Apollo-ponder on that. And I dont advertise my chapters for the fun of seeing in how little time someone finds out. :DDD
@EVERYONE IN THE APOLLO DISCUSSION - Apollo is like Triton- he stays Apollo.
@everyone wondering if new heroes will go zombies and if Aphrodite will strike - Well I'm not going to spoil my own story! Out of luck guys.
@silly - I'll join you being not happy. Percabeth is the only couple/lovey-dovey thing I actually like. Mostly because of the fanart of them, some of it is great!
@ROMANcritic - You most definetely do! *hands* Welcome, glad you like it!
@sugarcubes - Hi! *muffin basket* And Leo is all planned out, man. Leo is epic. (if you're not a guy, dont be offended)
@silverlocket- *hands tissue* When you people say that I'M scared you'll cry yourselves to dehydration later on *not saying more*
@Greekrules - I'm sorry, but I consider that comment spam.
@PJhero - Welcome! *hands muffin basket* Glad you like it, and have fun on fanpop!
@Greekrules - It's just the best compliment they've come up with and it makes me crack a smile every time :) I love you all!
@NicoDiangelo - It comes naturally for me. I've been at it since third/second grade, intensely since fifth. And some people have asked- I'm less then 16 years old.
@Greekrules- I don't read other fanfictions so mine is not influenced. I'd love to, and I'm sure there are some great ones but I want to stay true to my story until RR's comes out. I read a chapter of Hazel as a serious daughter of Minerva and I just cant picture that until RR says it. This is only bold for other people to see.
@redhawks - Lately I've been publishing more because its snowing, and its christmas, and my siblings are nice and my brother owns a lughtsabber, and I've been really happy and generous. This isn't going to keep up, warning you all now.

1 Can you all stop with the "I'm first on this page!" Yeah, we see you are, and its spamming.
2 I WANT TO KNOW EVERYTHING Your favorite character is Dakota, so I went out and got many pictures, I wrote her chapter in minute detail. I want to know when you smiled, if you cried, what you felt, when was her saddest moment apparently, etc. I'm expecting at least one sentance on that subject in the comments. s a christmas present to me? (if you celebrate it)

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Jason Grace
December 27th
And here we go again
-Jason… Jason… A soft voice whispered in my ear. I turned in my sleep.
-Jason… Jason… She repeated. And then I saw her again. A girl in bunker 1, the same one I’d seen a few days ago. She was wearing bronze armour. Her helmet on a table she was leaning on, one hand around the hilt of her sword. Her hair was curly and brown, blue almond-shaped eyes sparkled when she shook the hair out of them. They were fixed on a map, as 2 other kids, one with grey eyes and blond hair pinned up showing a tan neck and complexion, and another with sea green irises were talking to her, using their hands as they spoke.
-This is senseless, we are losing troops fast. Ruth muttered under her breath.
-Ruth. A deep voice said. She spun around. Through the entrance, the door pushed open, climbing down the steps where two boys dressed in bronze armour, just like hers, his eyes blue. They were pushing down a guy dressed in Roman armour, and I recognised the color of his toga: sky blue. And I went oh damn.
-Found a damned Roman in the forest. He said, as a second assembly marched down, bracing the girl who must’ve been his sister. She had an ugly cut across her face and her blond hair was sticking to her with sweat. They both had their hands tied behind their backs and everybody in the bunker stopped moving. Ruth straightened up and took out her sword. The two prisoners were pushed at her feet. She met the boy’s chin with her sword.
-And who might you be? She asked.
-I don’t need to answer to you, filthy Greek. One of his guards kicked him.
-Oscar, no. She said, as the boy did his best not to move.
-You are in my bunker under my command. I could kill you right away, Roman, I would watch it if I were you.
-I don’t believe you would.
-What is your name? She asked as she kneeled.
-Augustus. Augustus Peterson. Son of Jupiter, and leader of the Roman force. He snapped.
-Good. I am Ruth Linters, leader of the Greek force. What were you doing in the forest?
-Nothing. Ruth raised her hand before Oscar kicked the boy.
-I don’t believe that, and do you know why? Because it is a lie. I want the truth Augustus Peterson, and you will give me the truth, because your sister here could pay for it as much as you. Ruth said. The girl shot Augustus a “tell her and I zap you” look that I knew well. Mostly because I gave it.
-Memory blank? Ruth offered.
-I’ll go with that. Augustus smiled.
-Fine. She drew her sword back and did the same thing to the girl.
-And your name would be? She shouted something very rude in Latin.
-My sister speaks but Latin. Augustus said.
-That is a lie as well, and for your information, I speak your tongue too, and I will not be talked to that way. She has no advantage to avoiding directly speaking to me whether she speaks English, French, Ancient Greek or Latin. What is your name?
-Evelyn Blank. She said.
-Hello, Evelyn. Would you perhaps remember something your brother didn’t? About your whereabouts in the forest perhaps. Evelyn shouted another insult and the point of Ruth’s sword went nearer to her neck.
-I will not be spoken to like that Evelyn Blank. Now do you remember something your brother might not?
-He is your brother as well! Evelyn yelled. Oscar kicked her.
-Do not associate us with you!
-Do not kick my sister!
-Then answer mine, ignoble wretch!
-We came to negotiate for peace! Augustus finally said.
-We are not dupe, the second guard said. His eyes were sea green. A sign of truce is a white flag, you have none.
-We are not under orders, we came on our own, we could not bring one. Evelyn said.
-Even more ignoble then I thought. You aren’t even worth my sister’s sword.
Oscar spat.
-Oscar. Ruth said putting a hand up.
-We aren’t the only ones, some of the children of Minerva, your Athena, they want peace as well, this is mad, we are shedding blood for no reason! Evelyn said.
-Nobody knows we came. Not our leaders, not our seconds nor any members of a legion. Augustus said. Puzzled murmur went across the bunker.
-Amelia please explain what a legion is. Ruth said, eyes in Oscar’s.
-A legion is a group of 5, 000 foot soldiers and 700 cavalry men. If my information is correct, a legion from the City is 11 or 12 soldiers and 6 cavalrymen, not always including the horse of the Praetor, legion chief. The daughter of Athena said.
-Correct. Not so uneducated. Augustus said.
-Oh don’t you insult my intelligence, Roman. Amelia said menacingly.
-I would never dream of it, pulchra.
-And don’t you try charms on me either, it’s quite obvious you are in fact being whispered what to say form a charm speaker back at your camp. Amelia said. She went around the table and plucked something from Augustus’ ear, it looked exactly like a blue tooth when, at the touch of her fingertips, it became visible.
-This technology has been used by us for years; it is not quite innovative. Amelia said.
-You are a smart one, I will give you that. If you can spot a liar so well, can you tell that I’m telling the truth?
-Ruth, he is saying the truth.
-I know. I’m just deciding if we should negotiate. Amelia said something in Ancient Greek, then the son of Poseidon. Ruth said something that was probably approving, thought I had no idea.
-Yes. Henry, Amelia, take our friend Evelyn here to Chiron. Augustus, you are coming with me.

I woke up the image of Ruth grasping Augustus’ shoulder with her sword-free hand and steering him out the door, pushing past the 4 guards in my head.
That had to be from the civil war. It was the last time the two sides ever encountered, and their names just seemed right to the era. I got up and got dressed. The sun was rising outside. Getting up so early was a habit I had to keep if I wanted a chance at maintaining it when I got back to the city.
I tried to think about the city. The memories I had of my friends and all the things we’d done were probably the only thing keeping me from going absolutely insane. Morning of December 27 and I was already getting impatient. The next 6 months were going to be Pluto… But I couldn’t help it. Here I always felt like the odd one out, using Roman names. And then I’d had to explain what’d happened the night Krios had been defeated. It wasn’t a story I was good as telling. Sure, I’d been the guy to do it, but Dakota and Bobby always told it. I think they understood the most part though.

I got up and paced the room, behind the freaky statue.
Was that really what it had been like? How demigods had actually acted? That hostile over people they knew so little about? Well, maybe not. The Romans had defeated the Greeks and ripped off a lot of their art, and Greece had done horrible things as well. Maybe the two civilisations did know a lot about each other, but the way, say, Oscar had kicked Evelyn? That was Stupido-squad antique, there was no need, she was already immobilised and Ruth was handling it well. And maybe it was just that part of me who’d lived with Thalia who thought that, but Augustus had a point. We were siblings. Annabeth and Bobby were sister and brother, Alex and Miranda Gardner were sisters, Gwen and the Stolls, etc. Why were we fighting? Gwen wouldn’t kill Kyle (on most days), why would she kill Connor? The logic of it worked everywhere.
-If logic worked young hero, the world would be flawless. A voice said. I turned around. Leaning on a walking stick, dressed in the kind of simple clothing a shepherdess would wear, a simple veil on her head was hiding her eyes, but not the glossy black hair falling on her shoulders. She couldn’t be more than 12 and she walked bare foot. The back door of the cabin was open and she stood in the doorframe. I froze.
-But it would not be the world then, would it?
-Hmm… Wise words. A smile touched her lips.
-I’m sorry, but who are you and what are you doing here? I asked.
-If I told you, you wouldn’t believe me. She said.
-I’m at a camp for children of the Greek gods, out of all things, Terra is making a comeback and my new friend can burst into flames spontaneously. Try me. I said.
-A fighter too. You, Jason Grace could be very useful for this. The shepherdess smiled.
-I’m sorry, but who did you say you where?
-I never said. This camp is preparing for war, isn’t it?
-Yes.
-But you are missing one key factor. One factor that could cost you your victory, she said. Do you know what I am talking about?
-No.
-Find yourself a copy of the gigantes myth. Read it, you will find. The shepherdess said.
-Okay… Where can I find one?
-Ask and you will receive. She said.
-But I..?
I hadn’t even blinked and she was gone. I ran to the doorframe and looked outside. No sign of either her or her flock of sheep. Not even prints in the ground. Who the heck was she? The only mythological character that came to mind when I thought of sheep was Faunus, the god. I didn’t know about Greek. See, another thing that was annoying, the people here were all Greek, so half of the time I had to clue where the mythological oriented conversations were going, because the names get confusing as heck.
But I wouldn’t ask Annabeth about the shepherdess. For some reason that had to stay my secret. At least for now. But I would ask her about the book, I needed that much information.

At about 7 in the morning there was a knock on my door. It was Karen. Her clay eyes were wide.
-Hey Karen, what’s wrong?
-It’s Rachel, she just started twitching and she passed out. She asked for you. I got out of the cabin and followed her down to the cave. Rachel was lying outside the cave, as if she’d just walked out. Annabeth was kneeling next to her, holding her head still.
-This always happens when I’m around. She said as a greeting.
-I feel the same way. I said, kneeling next to Rachel. She froze.
-Child of lightning the job is not done
To prevent immunity at war, you and the force shall be the one
It will be a race against he who chant a different hymn
And until New Years is your time

She dropped back and Annabeth pushed her on her side, in the recovery position after CPR.
-Well… I said.
-Yup. Annabeth said.
-Confused. Karen said.
-It’s a prophecy. Jason has another job.
-Oh joy. I’ll go get Piper, Leo and whatever other cabin leaders I can find, you find Chiron and whoever else.
-Works with me. Karen, we’ll need you too. Annabeth said.
-Well that can’t be good. Karen said.
-Have you done this before? Because you are absolutely right. I said.

The Big Sister
Like all ishy chapters, this chapter is dedicated, dedicated to millions of girls I don’t know. This is dedicated to all the big sisters out there, because heck yes we all know it’s not easy, but we do it for the love of our siblings. If you’re a little sister, go give the older one a hug, she might seem evil, but she loves you deep down. I know because I am one.

Gaia observed the pasts of the girl she was looking for.
She was 2 years old again. 2 years old, running around her home with the Jason boy, playing with a sword. Either of them could barely lift it, but they were amused and content with dragging it around.
-Okay, Bloody hell no. Somebody said. It was a girl, coming in. She was about 18 years old with platinum blond hair that was done in braids. Her eyes were mismatched, one blue and one hazel- though that one was swelled up and closed and crooked. Her nose looked like it’d been broken a lot and every time her thin lips stretched to talk; a melodious voice with a British accent came out.
She picked up the sword single-handedly from the girl’s hand and the toddlers looked at her like she was a god.
-Do not play with swords. She said sternly.
-Ah, Joanna, let them live. The brother said coming in. He was 12, had black hair, rebelliously sprouting from everywhere. His skin had gold undertones and he spoke with a Spanish accent. His disproportioned eyes sparkled brown and he was missing an eyebrow, but for a son of Janus, overall pretty good features.
-Charro, they’re two!
-Yeah, they’ll be playing with swords for the rest of their lives; they might as well learn it hurts young.
-Honestly I can’t believe Dakota’s your sister!
-I do care about her! And Jason’s my dude!
-I’m your dude, I’m your dude! Jason said.
-Me too, me too! No, I’m Jo’s dude! Dakota peeped up. Charro laughed.
-So we each get a dude? She asked.
-Yeah! What’sa dude? Charro and Jo tried not to laugh at them.
-Canweave the glad us? The child, Dakota asked in that weird language only toddlers can speak. Gaia had to be wowed. It was the same for gods, titans and mortals.
-No, you can not have the gladus. The young woman put it on a high shelf.
-Kota and I strong enough. Jason said, frowning.
-Common, outside with you two. She said. The tots ran outside, walking bare feet on their toes like toddlers do. The she-wolf was outside, everybody bowing to her as she walked past the houses.
-Lupa’s dude! Both toddlers yelled. Lupa turned around as both Jason and Dakota ran towards her and buried their faces in her coat.
-Hello little ones. She said, eyeing the children’s usual sitters in a “what?” way. Jo and Charro didn’t even try to explain.
-Afternoon legion training starts in 10 minutes, I’d suggest you leave Dakota and Jason to the care of a citizen. Lupa said.
-Yes Ma’am. They both bowed and headed back in the cabin. Lupa kneeled and as they always did when they were little, the children hoped on her back.
-Where going? Jason asked.
-I’m bringing you to see Alexandria. Lupa said. Both cheered and she brought them outside the murals and to the wheat feels, cutting in front of the grape vines and olive trees. She spoke once.
-Alexandria Orge. A girl popped up from the maze of wheat. She had hair the exact same color, put in two braids and partially hidden by a bandana. Her eyes shone green like apple tree leaves and she was wearing a pair of overalls over a well-worn squared shirt.
-Alex! Dakota squealed as we jumped off.
-Oh, hey guys! Am I on?
-Charro and Joanna are at legion training. Lupa nodded.
-Oh sweet, you guys will love this. Alex smiled. They followed her into the wheat field.
Now the children were in a field of hay, Alex helping them climb on bales of hay piled high. And when we got to the top she put one of them on each knee and they slid down a slide. The Harvest traditions of Ceres cabin were always just as great, and the enormous hay slide was one of their favourites. Jason and his friend giggled the whole way down, and Alex laughed at them.
This was not the memory she was looking for. Over all those years of silence and slumber, had she forgotten how to find memories? But nonetheless, this was interesting. She opted to watch more of the girl’s memories, besides, wouldn’t the one she was looking for stroll into them as Dakota Ledécit got older?
The change of character from Gaia to Terra annoyed her, she shouldn’t be shifting too much. One of the disadvantages of her weakened state. But it was barely if she’s been able to understand the exchange, it was better that she was in her Latinised form.
Now the girl was at the gates of the city. Charro had his arm around a woman, who was kneeling, an arm wrapped around a 4 years old blond girl, who had the same gold undertones to her skin and kaki eyes as her mother, and an arm around Charro.
-Oh dear Dakota! Charro, you’re so strong now! I never thought you would have made it here, that it had been a lie… I thought honest to stone that drakon had taken you two away from me. She said in Spanish, through her tears. The boy Charro was getting wet eyes as well.
-Mamà I miss you. She said with all the innocence of a 2 year old.
That had to make her smile. Children were adorable, basing everything on you until they were old enough for their base to need no support. She nearly lost the image, trailing off to remember each one of her children; and for once the Giants didn’t even cross her mind.
-Oh Dakota, so did I, so did I. The mother said.
-Can we go home now, please? Charro asked.
-Of course. She said. She moved her arm to hold his head, her thumb on his cheek.
-Charro, I know you are probably a part of a legion, and if you want to stay here that’s fine, but I am taking Dakota back to Sacramento, this isn’t the place for a child who can avoid being here. But when she decides to come back, I don’t care how old she is, I’ll bring her back.
-Home! The tot clamoured.
-Me too. Lupa has given the approval that I am skilled enough to get away with a summer of legion training. Charro said. The mother smiled and gave Charro a hug and Dakota joined in.
-Can Jason come? She asked.
-Jason? Sweety, who’s Jason? The mother asked.
-My best friend! Dakota ran into the city and came out dragging him by the hand.
-Hello Jason. She kindly said.
-Can Jason come? Jason lost his mommy too, and he can share mine. Dakota said. Lupa intervened.
-My Child, Jason needs to stay in the city. He cannot go with you and your mother. Lupa said gently. The girl’s expression faded. She turned and gave Jason a hug.
-Don’t worry. You will find your mommy too.


Now the children were a memory far from the time of finding out their mother was still alive. Dakota Ledécit was in a dimly lit hospital waiting room, about 7 other adults spread across the room, couples leaning against one other or men pacing. One of the posters on the wall had a big pink ribbon printed on it and the slogan “We must fight” underneath. Her interest was 6 years old, sitting on a chair, toes barely touching the ground. She was covered by a heavy knitted beige blanket, her little toddler hands grasping to it like a man fallen in the sea to a life ring.
Charro came out of a door and knelt down in front of her, his face the mask of a stern expression.
-Is Mamà really with Pluto now Charro? She asked in Latin. The brother, who was wiser than to speak a dead language in public, answered in Spanish.
-Yes. She gasped and her eyes swelled up with tears. He put a hand on each shoulder and directed her to look him in the eyes, his voice shook trying to control tears.
-Look Kota, in two years I’ll be 18, and then I’m an adult, okay? I promise that when I’m an adult, you’ll come live with me, and Dael too. I’ll make enough money for a house, and a car and it will be okay. But until then, I need to go be a praetor at the city, do you understand? And for that, they can’t know where I am, because then they won’t let me go back and live there for more than a summer. So I have to run away and go to the City in secret. You can’t tell anyone. In the summer they will bring you to San Francisco and someone from the City- I’ll try and make sure it’s Alex- will pick you up. It will be hard, but in 2 years it will all be better, I promise. He said. She sobbed, clutching the blanket even harder.
The patients around her gave them looks of pity, even if the fact they were in that room meant they had troubles of their own. The sight of that crying toddler, and a big brother trying to comfort her really was enough to shatter the strongest hearts.
-Kota please, promise. He pleaded.
-Where will I go? Where will Dael go?
-They will find you a family to go be in. Just for a while, not permanently, not an adoption. He promised.
-I don’t want a new mommy and I don’t need another daddy! The tot yelled in Latin.
-No, no, you don’t need to have a new mommy, Kota, just promise. Take good care of Dael for me, okay? And be a good girl. Don’t tell anybody about the monsters or where I am. Can you promise that? Charro asked. She nodded. He kissed his sister on the forehead.
-I’ll see you in the summer and think about you every day. Keep your promise, Kota. And so will I. He promised, his eyes shimmering with tears.


Nest up Gaia saw her from the back, sitting on a bed, rocking a baby back and forth. Probably her brother, Dael.
-Shh, shh, it’s okay, it will be okay. Charro promised, and I promise.


Now Dakota was 9, and was standing on a dock that’d sunken. A boy about her age was standing there too, kicking around in the water.
-You lost it here? Dakota asked.
-Yeah, I’m sure.
-Why did you drop it in the water, Jason?
-Well, I didn’t drop it, Jace Gayle threw it in.
-Wow, jerk.
-Yeah, I know. I guess I kind of deserved it. But it wasn’t my fault his eyebrows got fried off.
-Sure it wasn’t. Dakota smiled.
-I think I found it. Dakota said. She bent down and picked up a golden coin.
-Yes! Thanks Kota. Jason said. He extended his hand for her to drop it in, but she dropped it in the water. With a “CLUK!” sound it disappeared underwater again.
-Really? Jason sighed. They bent down to look for it but Dakota pushed him away.
-Nuh-uh, we’ve been in here for 20 minutes, that’s more than Neptune would forgive you for, get back on the shore, I’ll find it.
-Seriously Kota, I’m okay. Dakota splashed him.
-Get out. She said. Jason kicked some water at her and soon the two friends had forgotten about the coin and about Jason’s uncle, and were splashing around. Dakota disappeared under the flow. Jason’s eyebrows furrowed in worry but she emerged a short distance away, her hair straightened down her back, clutching something in her hand.
-I found it again. She said, getting to her feet.
-Thank gods, Jeremy would kill me if I didn’t have it for training tomorrow, everybody should be here by tomorrow.
-I can’t wait! Dakota said.
Jason’s watch beeped.
-Styx, Bobby should get here anytime!
-We better get changed, its supper time anyways. They both walked onto the shore and picked up abandoned towels before walking back towards the murals of the city.

The next memory was the eldest brother, standing in the hallway of an apartment complex. He held a 10 year-old girl by the hand and a now 3 year old Dael clung on to his leg. He unlocked the door of the apartment and the trio of siblings moved inside. He flicked on the lights to reveal a living room, no electronics in sight, painted a happy yellow shade, leading to a kitchen stocked with the essentials and 2 doors.
-Ta-dah! Charro said. Dakota ran inside and with toddler steps, so did Dael. They plunked down on the sofa. They smiled and laughed as they hopped back to their feet and went to discover their new home. Charro closed the door behind his siblings and him. His sister ran past him and he grabbed her by the shoulder.
-This is okay Kota? I know this is a little small, but…
-Charro it’s Perfect! She said giving him a hug.

And another painful memory hit away the good one.
She was 15 kneeling on the ground, Mount Othrys standing tall and gloomy behind me. The girl was cradling Charro’s head in my knees. He had a wound on his face, like his whole cheek had been blown off and his breath was raspy and full of pain. Her eyes were threatening to start spilling like a faucet.
-Common Charro, keep it going, Colin from Apollo will be here soon. She said ignoring the legions charging behind me, the screams of pain and rage, the lightning crackling down and fires starting behind her. From the looks of it, her side was painfully outnumbered.
-Kota your legion needs you and so does Jason. He said.
-Mike’s fine Charro, you just… just hold on.
-No Kota. My fight ends here, and yours needs to keep going, Da.
-Don’t you dare talk like that Charro Ledécit!
-I’ve been fighting for ever Kota; everything has a beginning and an ending. As child of Janus, you can see mine, can’t you? The door to my ending is creaking open.
-You can’t just choose to die Charro! Common, I need you! She said, her voice strangled.
-No Kota. You don’t. Everything you do is your choice, and things that will happen to you will be yours too. It’s your life, your decision. I love you and Dael, and this is mine. His eyelids slowly closed.


Next memory was the young brother’s Boy Scout promise. He was 8 years old and even from the bad angle the vision was giving her, Gaia could see him with all the other boys, his face looking like he ran into walls a lot. A son of Janus who’d inherited more from the father then his older siblings.
-Can the parents of Remy Led acre step forth? The leader said. A blond kid reminding Gaia of the toddler that had been Jason, and his two plump parents went forward. They exchanged a few words, their voice hushed so nobody could hear. Then the boy got a green and brown scarf put around his neck, and he went to join the other kids who’d promised to be scouts.
-Can Dael Ledécit’s parents come up please? Dael stood there. Dakota glanced at the door. She got up, and I could tell she was trying not to feel disappointed, and walked towards Dael. The leader looked up from a paper and frowned behind his bold glasses.
-And you would be?
-Dakota Ledécit sir.
-You are his sister?
-Yes, that’s me.
-Please go fetch your mother or father; I need a parent.
-I’m as good as it’s going to get, sir. Our parents are deceased. Please, Dael’s tutors really don’t care, and we barely get to see each other, this would mean so much to Dael. She begged. The man examined her with smart grey eyes.
-You’re one of the nicest sisters I think any boy here has, Dakota Ledécit. Do you give your brother permission to promise to be a boy scout?
Dakota was 16. At the height of her age, her life and power. She stood in the senate, looking through piles of paper.
-Hey. A black haired boy said coming in. He had strong arms and calluses covered his hands, his eye black. She looked up and smiled.
-Hey Mike. She smiled.
-I thought you might need help with whatever.
-I don’t think I’m allowed sadly. We try to do things like Rome here, but I’m pretty sure this paperwork doesn’t count. Dakota said. Mike laughed.
-What kind of paperwork?
-Requests for construction, cultivating, demolitions. She waved the paper she was holding to indicate that’s what it was. She put her gaze back on it and sighed.
-We don’t have any building we can knock down, so I really don’t see why I have to read them. She grimaced. They’re all sent from the stupido-squad, they are doing it on purpose. Jace is still ticked for not being on the quest.
-I have an easy solution for you. The boy said. He plucked the paper from her hands and folded it up with skill not associated with his big hands, until it had the shape of a cat.
-Origami cat?
-Origami cat. Much more pleasant than that. He said showing the pile.
-You’re right. She smiled. The Mike boy pulled a chair and sat besides her.
-I know empress alone is super hard on you, and with Jason missing and Reyna, Bobby, Hazel and the new guy gone to the sacred land, it’s even more stressful, but you’re strong enough to do anything.
-Thanks Mike, I don’t know what I’d do without you. She said, getting up and giving him a hug.
-Hey, I’ll always be your right arm, and you know it Da.
-I know. Sometimes I think there are better, more experienced people out there, though.
-No way in Pluto, Da! Who’s more experienced then you?
-Some have seen more battle.
-Yeah, because we’d so want Jace Gayle as a consul. Da, you’re beating yourself down, you do it all the time when you’re stressed.
-I’m sorry, I guess you’re right.
-Oh, heck yes I am. Well me and my origami cat have disturbed her majesty enough. Adihouse.
-Adios! She corrected his Spanish, blushing at the title he’d given her. He smiled, like he’d done it especially for the irritation factor, before turning his heals and leaving his friends with a folded cat and paperwork.
Those memories weren’t exactly what she’d been looking for, but she now held in her hand the whereabouts of her target.


16
Jason Grace
December 26th
Use the Force
-The plan is very simple. Jason and Luke Skywallker go on a quest. Leo said.
-What the Hades?
-The force. They said the Force. If Vulcan exists, then so should the force.
Piper smacked her forehead and muttered something in French. I think I recognised some insults (French is a language that has Latin roots).
-Don’t try and diffuse the tension, Leo. Please don’t. Miranda Gardner said.
-I think it means Karen. She’s the strongest one here. Annabeth said, lost in thought. Clarisse and Karen immediately sprang into action and arm wrestled from across the table to check that fact. The conversation went on without them.
-Well Jason and 1 person. A duo. This is odd. Will Solace said.
-Never happened before. Annabeth said.
-Yes, because right now we are following the usual order of things. Pollux, son of Dionysus, said. A huge smacking indicated that someone had been beaten at arm wrestling.
-Point taken. Annabeth acknowledged.
-Okay, so Karen and Jason, but what does the rest mean?
-Annabeth, can I borrow a copy of the Giants myth? I asked. She looked at me. She slipped her hand in the bag swung across her shoulder.
-Do you want a translation in French, Latin or English? She asked.
-Latin would be great. Annabeth took an inch binder from her bag. She opened it, showing a page covered in her neat handwriting, checked to make sure it was the good myth, and handed it to me over the table.
-Why? She asked.
-Dream. It’s something to prevent the giants from reaching invulnerability. I said.
I started reading the myth quickly, my mind rejoicing at the familiar language and a smile reaching my lips. A name caught my eyes before I got there. “Zeus”
-This is the Greek version of the myth by the way. Annabeth said. I nodded.
Zeus knew that the giants were only undefeatable as long as the mysterious herbs grown by the wild were on their side. So one day he snuck out before the giants’ early rise and picked every single herb before the giants had even opened an eyelid. The surprise in store for them the morning they found nothing in their precious fields- the anger was much worst, and the festivities on Olympus even deeper.
-Annabeth, the herbs… I said.
-What? She took out the Greek copy and I showed her the paragraph. Her eyes widened.
-Oh, duh! She said.
-What? Connor asked.
-What made the giants so hard to beat, well one thing anyways, was a concoction of herbs they ate to stay undefeatable. Annabeth read out the myth, translating into English as she spoke.
-Well who better to go steal the herbs again then Zeus’ son? Butch said.
-Klepto people. Leo said. Piper hit him.
-I meant Connor and Travis, geez! He complained.
-Don’t break his arm; we need him to build Argo II. Lou Ellen said.
-Thank you Lou Ellen, I feel loved and appreciated.
-Would you rather I lie?
-It’d help my self-esteem.
-Yes Leo, because that’s a problem. I said sarcastically.
-The giants will be there earlier to grab the herbs for themselves. They will be there way before the solstice. Annabeth said, interrupting the discussion on Leo’s confidence.
-Which is why we should go in winter? Andra, daughter of Nike, said.
-Yes.
-So where in New York are they? Connor asked.
-Okay, agricultural genius speaking here, but everything in the state of New York is dead. Miranda said.
-Well, if it’s that important it has to be in New York. Butch said.
-Or San Francisco. I said defensively.
-Whichever.
-Yeah, where are the herbs? All eyes turned to Miranda and Annabeth.
-I don’t know.
-Neither do I.
-Chiron? We turned to the centaur, who’d stayed silent the whole time.
-Even I don’t know. The gods have kept that information to themselves. “Like the City?” I felt like saying, but I bit my tongue. Insolence was not a habit I’d earn here. Well, perfect.
-I have an idea. Leo said.
-No we will not summon them with the force. Piper said.
-No, it’s even better than that. Nico goes talk to Hercules.
-What?
-Why? Nico asked.
-Well, Hercules was the mortal who helped the gods slay the giant the first time around, so he’d know right? Plus, Zeus might have told his son, right?
-Didn’t tell Jason or Thalia, I don’t see why he’d tell Hercules.
-Either way, it’s worth a shot.
-I’m willing. Nico said.
-Sweet. Jason?
-Don’t have a choice, do I?
-Unless you’re okay with the world being overrun by giants and taken control over by Gaia. Leo offered.
-I’m in.
-Karen? Piper asked. Karen looked pale. Her hair was brought up in a loose and casual braid. She looked afraid.
-Are you sure? Clarisse is more experiences and stronger.
-Look Pep squeak, we just arm wrestled. I’m the strongest kid at this camp, but it’s by the order of things that you beat me.
-But I can barely fight! Are you sure I’d be any good?
-Karen, let me remind you of your little friend Sherman DeCharge. Really? What kind of a question is that? Leo said.
-Okay. I’ll go with Jason. Karen said.
-Sweet, when do we leave? Nico said.
-As soon as possible if that’s alright with you two. I said.
-Fine by me. Nico said.
-Yeah. Karen said, her voice soft. I felt bad for her- she was scared to Pluto.
As everybody left, Leo making a run for the forge before Piper could catch him, I managed to get near Karen.
-You okay Karen? I asked. She nodded, still pale.
-Don’t worry about the quest, okay? This one is pretty straight forward; the only thing you have to worry about is the Underworld. After Nico takes us there the two of us go get the herbs and we’re back. I said trying to make my words reassuring.
-Yeah, I know, it’s just… What if something happens to you? I can’t defend either you or me.
-Karen, when its life or death, you’ll be able to do amazing things. My friend Dakota, her brother Charro- he told us that all the time, and heck yes he was right. I said. She looked up at me and nodded.
-It’s more about actually getting the herbs that I’m scared. I don’t want to be anywhere near LA. She said.
-Why not?
-That’s where my mom lives. I’m kind-of sick of it.
-Really? I thought you liked stunt-doubling.
-I do. But I do so much of it… My mom goes overboard. She signs me up for every single audition. Overboard, you know?
-A little. We’re probably not, don’t worry. I said.
-That’s the least of my worries. But, nothing that bad can happen, right?
-Why?
-Because you’re trained.


-If you get hurt I’ll kill you. Piper said, giving me a hug.
-I’ll try. I said, feeling guilty as she gave my shoulders a squeeze.
-If you get hurt I’ll burn your remains after she kills you. Leo said.
-I believe you. I said. Leo grinned and his hair burst into flames.
-Oh, damn it. He said as the flame died.
-Nice Leo, nice. Piper said. Annabeth gave me a friendly punch in the shoulder.
-If you get hurt I’ll hide you from them. She smiled.
-Thanks. I smirked. Karen was saying goodbye to her cousin, Victor, son of Nike. Nico talked to Annabeth.
-Remember, you come back straight after, not your quest Di Angelo. You stay out there you will most likely die. She said.
-Dear gods, you’ve told me a million times! I will. He said, but he looked secretly glad that someone was fussing over him.
-You two ready?
-I am. Karen? Karen spun around.
-Yeah, I’m good. Victor pulled her back in a hug and sent her up the hill. I looked at Thalia’s tree one more time, as Nico took my wrist, and a thought occurred to me.
-Hey Annabeth, tell Thalia…
But we engulfed by shadows and next thing I knew we were all lying in a garden of bejewelled pants. Karen sprung to her feet, eyes opened wide as aureuses.
-Oh my God that was cool! She exclaimed, a smile stretching her lips.
-Yeah, awesome. Nico said. He looked pale and tired.
-Can I get a hand? He asked, sitting up. Karen extended hers but before their fingers could touched I said:
-Woe, Karen, maybe not. I said.
-Oh, right. Sorry. She said. I hauled Nico back to his feet.
-So, where are we? I asked my eyes looking from the castle in the distance to the barbed wire fence surrounding what I suspected were the fields of punishment.
-Persephone’s garden. He said. I looked down at the squished plants.
-Oops. I said.
-Nah, don’t worry about it, she won’t know. Hades and Persephone are still barricaded in the palace. Zeus’ orders. He explained. Speaking of which. He stomped on a very pretty diamond plantation.
-She won’t know. He explained. Karen was looking at a silver tree; the branches crooked reminding me of fingers.
-Don’t eat or drink anything here. Well- drink I’m not too worried. You’re got the Styx or the Lethe, neither which I recommend.
-Thank you captain obvious. I said.
-Follow me. He said. We followed him down a gravel path that led to 2 lines, EZ death and ETERNAL OR URE was another. I imagined it was ETERNAL TORTURE, but the T’s had been ripped off and replaced with a splash of scarlet. Nico led us straight for it.
-I didn’t think Hercules would be here. Karen said.
-Why not?
-Well, didn’t he go to Olympus and marry Hebe or something?
-Karen, you’re right! I said.
-Relax. He’s off of Olympus for a century. He’s a judge here for eternal damnation. Follow me. Nico said.
The Underworld looked odd. I’d never been before, but just the way the rocky walls and structures seemed to be peeling, the fact that there were less tortured soul cries then I expected… I guessed Midas, Medea and Lycaon’s escapes hadn’t been minimal.
-If you’re wondering, it’s more then those 3. Nico told me.
-Pardon?
-More souls are going on the loose now. Regular humans too. Melinoe and Hecate are on the verge of a nervous breakdown trying to get them back down here, and of course Sisy’s escaped.
-Sisy?
-Sisyphus. Nico said. With a wave of his hand he showed a hill, where at the bottom a bolder was laying.
-The-have-to-roll-a-boulder-up-a-hill-for­-et­ern­ity­-bu­t-a­s-s­oon­-as­-he­’d-­get­-cl­ose­-it­’d-­rol­l-b­ack­-do­wn guy? Karen asked.
-Yeah, how did you know that?
-Mom made me do research for “The King of Sparta”. She said.
-Yes, well he managed to escape again. A voice said. We turned around.
The woman standing there was tall and frail looking. Her hair was frizzy and black, in no real order, falling straight on her shoulders. She wore a simple heavy black hooded dress, with a rope tied around her waist and a talisman that looked like a dream catcher with scraps of metal tied on. Her eyes were thin and of an un-identifiable color. Her skin was pale, her lips stretched and her bangs square. She held a long branch in her hand, that looked a little like a walking stick.
-Hello Hecate. Nico said casually. The goddess nodded her head.
-Welcome back, young Prince. She said.
-Trivia? I guessed.
She changed forms, into a sleeveless toga with black ink running across it, twisting and turning and disappearing (which was the worst thing to wear if you wanted to keep ADHD children’s attention) and her hair became glossy, flowing down her back.
-Indeed. And son of Jupiter, you are at a place far from your father’s realm, aren’t you?
-I am serving my city, there is no better place. I said thinking of about fifty million.
-The words of a true consul. She smiled. Trivia turned back to Hecate.
-May I be of assistance, kako xorki? She asked.
-Actually yes. These 2 need to speak to Hercules. I can get them in and out, but after they speak to him they will need transportation to a location unknown.
-Of course I can manage that. Hecate said. Suddenly there was a sound like an alarm and the goddess sighed. She ran a short distance away when a silvery shape zoomed past her, like a storm spirit making a WHEEEEE!!!!!sound. Hecate pointed her staff and a strike of lightning sparked out and hit the spirit as her hair flew back. It fell to the ground and immediately a squad of 4 skeletons, bearing half of Greek armour, came and swept the frozen thing into a toxic waste basket before carrying it away. Hecate strolled back and smoothed her robes.
-Terribly sorry, she said. But I believe Kako xorki had already informed you we’ve had, umm, regulation problems. She said. There was a cry of desperation and shock.
-You better take your friends to the judges tables, Kako xorki, I think they have just condemned a spirit, they should be clear. The magic goddess said.
-Yes, thanks Hecate.
-I will wait for your friends outside. Hecate said.
-Why are you wearing Hogwarts robes? Karen suddenly asked.
-What?
-Well, she looks like the people from the Harry Potter movies. Karen said.
-No she doesn’t, Karen, what do you mean? A smile drew itself on the witch goddess’ lips.
-What does magic mean to you, daughter of Kratos?
-Spells. Spells and books, like Witch or Harry Potter.
-And you, son of Jupiter?
-Potions and charm speak.
-Well to you my voice must be very soft and persuasive, and I perhaps look like Hazel, but to you, daughter of Kratos, my voice must sound like one of the actors in that movie. Magic has changed so much over the years, from worship, to a fear, to books, to a religion too: it depends how you look at it. If you see magic as Satan, then Satan I’ll be like to you. But if you see magic as wonderful, then that’s what you see me as. It also changes what my children can do; the more they believe, the more they hold power. Except for perhaps one case… It also helps decide how they cast spells. If they do wild-spells, or believe in wand lore, or no charms at all. And did you really think I had nothing to do in that? The Golden trio of the Harry Potter series hold a characteristic from me. Hermione Granger has frizzy hair, Harry’s is black and Ron has blue eyes.
So that was the color of Hazel’s eyes… hmm…
-No it is not, Jason Grace, she’ll tell you eventually. Trivia smiled.
-Is the lady who wrote Harry Potter, JK Rowling, your daughter?
-No, she is an unidentified daughter of the muse Calliope, of epic poetry.
-Harry Potter isn’t a poem. I said.
-No, but it is epic. But enough about me or British books: go meet the hero who was probably your idol: go meet Heracles.

OH MY WAFFLES!!(Yes, I had waffles for dinner. Also yes I know I am eating dinner late.That was great!!! OMG I loved it!! AHHHH I LOVED IT SO MUCH!! I am speachless..........I have no idea what to say to you. The RR compliment isn't even enough now. Not even the J.K. Rowling one........

Well, you wanted my feedback so here it is.........


I loved the beginng. The part with the Civil War. Hahahah now this is funny. First my name in the story now, my sister's, Amelia. Awesome.

Oh, and that part about big sisters.......Touching. But...Whooohooo GO BIG SISTERS!! You know I do love my sister deep down.....Very deep down....:P I might just have to read that part to her......Hmmmm

I was on the verge of tears when Dakota's mom died. This is coming from a girl who doesn't cry when some idiotic doctor takes her foot twists it as hard as he can the way my foot can't turn........I wasn't even on the verge of tears then........But, when I picture a little toddler and a big brother in that sitution.......I picture my little sister and me and that made me about to cry. I'm almost crying as I type this.

Another touching moment was when Charroo(That's not even funny how bad I spelled that. Sorry.)was dieing. Holy crap. That makes me so sad to picture that.

Hahahha Oh Leo................. His hair burst into flames.......That makes me giggle. Heheheh...... USE THE FORCE!! I burst out laughing when I read that. Of course my mom and dad were standing in the doorway watching me go threw and emotional rollercoaster, with the tears in my eyes and then the laughing.

I forgot to contrulate(Spelled so terriably wrong.)you on you 200 pages!!

Again, great job! I loved it. Your so descriptive. I can truly see you on New York's Bestseller's list.(If there is a Bestseller's list in Cananda then on that. I have no clue and me being an American that's the best thing I know it could be on so I used that.)

HA!!!!!! That was the most emotional peice if work that I have ever read!!!!!
Wait... wait... wait... I am a farmiliar face????....COOL!!!
I loved it, so good!!!... my mom is sitting, wraping the presents then i start to cry... then I gasp... then I laugh hestericly... then I growl (Litterly)... then I let out a huge GASP... then I sigh... and then last I am laughing hestericly (again)... when I was done with all of this my mom was staring at me like WHAT?.?.?.?. and I was like WHAT?.?.?.?. and then my bro comes in and he is like WHAT?.?.?.?.
I LOVED IT!!!!! IT WAS SO AWESOME!!!!!!
I love how you included Harry Potter in it too... it is like my two favorite worlds coming together in peace and harmony... peace and harmony of awesomness...
This is just pure artwork... proving my point that you are not Rick Riordan...
HEY don't look at me like that!!!!! gosh
Ricks work is artwork but in a different way... so you... (Hecate) are............. J.K. ROWLING
Yes Yes she is in our presence people bow down before her... for she deservers respect! Also who else would be so smart to combine... (not combine but include) the two worlds... now Hecate do not say "I am not Rowling" or "Are you crazy??" because first off... I know I am crazy... always has been... always will be
But if you say you are not you are lying... it is a sin to lie....

It is kind of funny sayin that you are J.K. Rowling while you are "including" Harry Potter... well itis just a qawinkidink!!

LOVE YOU WORK HECATE!!
sorry there was just so much and now I am just like...wow...
I love how the fire... and the hair... with Leo... I was just so funny...
May the force be with you... yah

over a year ago barogr said…
When I saw the three chapters, I started shouting I LOVE YOU!!! Good thing I'm home alone or they would lock me in a lunatic asylum and threw the key away for the mood swings I had while reading the story. I must say that even though I got what was going on it was a bit confusing but maybe that's just me, since my maternal language is Turkish and not English (they almost have nothing to do with each other but I've been learning english since 5 years old- I'm 14 now, 4 months until 15 so 10 years of English and I still have some problems- yet I still recomend you to give your stories to a proffesional to check before publishing in the future, because I'm sure you'll get published when you are grown up with a bestselling book- which will be translated to Turkish :P) I still love Dacota but am loaded with too much info too fast, it's like not wanting to eat anyting for a week after eating a bucket full of your favorite meal. I also want to lern more about what happens between Piper and Jason and of course Add, his name and Annabeth, CAN'T WAIT!!! How many pages have we read until now by the way? And how many pages do you intend this to be?

Ok guys listen up! Hecate wanted me to explain to you guys about spam.
So here it goes:
Spam is when you write a reply of topic. So say you are on the forum and write something about lets say Power Rangers. That will be considered spam and if happened to much, will be reported by Hecate, Lightning, anyone else, and especially me.
Spam is also making multiple replies saying the exact same thing, which so far no one has done.

I hope this clears it up so none of you will do it.

Oh, also if you spam then say your going to stop, we consider that spam. SO just don't say anything, just stop.
over a year ago partypony said…

OMG!!!!! UR BEST CHAPTER EVER!!!

that was so awesome Hecate I even reread it like a million times. here's my feedback:

Those memories about Dakota was so heartbreaking and sweet and so sad. I loved it. Dakota is officially one of my top 10 characters in this series.
Leo is very Leoish. So funny. The force thing hehehe.
The prophecy- very nice.
The quest- sounds awesome and I'll bet a million bucks (canadian or otherwise) it WILL be awesome.
And yay I finally get to see Hecate (like the myth one). Like the HP thing. And JK Rowling being a demigod. Can muses have demigods? Dunno.
And all those info, must have taken u forever to research. Unless u already have backround knowledge. Very well researched.
The dream about the half-blood Civil War was awesome. I found it hard to believe that the Greeks acted that way, and that the Romans wanted peace (unofficially). I thought that it would be the other way around, since the Romans are more warlike and so on. But awesome.
What does Kako xorki mean?
And why did Gaea/Terra want with those memories about Dakota?
Are you planning Dakota being one of the seven? Looks like it! YAY!

Overall, that chapter was a masterpiece! SO AWESOME! UR LONGEST CHAPTER YET!
Its one of a kind! Thanks for making my day Hecate! This really is a good start for the day before Christmas!
Now I cant wait for the next chapter!
~partypony

over a year ago NicoDiAngelo4 said…
That was so ah-mazing! <3 it! And (besides Nico) I think Dakota might be my favorite character. I love how she is a daughter of Janus! She seems super nice, but I felt soo bad for her when Charro died. But it was clever how you tied in the whole Janus, beginnings, and ends thing with his death. I thought it was cute that Jason and Dakota were really good friends. :) It was really sweet when Dakota told Jason that they could share her mommy. Oh, and when they were looking fir the coin in the water. Thank you so much for the 3 chapters and merry Christmas eve to everyone. And if you don't celebrate Christmas then happy holidays! Oh, and I voted for you Hecate, :) yep, I think I got it all, and if not, whateevvss! Thanks,

OK guys, I bought this book called "Mitoloji" (it's in turkish and means "mythology" as you might guess, pronounced the same) and according to it Janus ("İanus" in Turkish) is one of the few authentic Roman gods -If that is true I really don't know why he tried to drive Annabeth crazy in the labirynth- He is the god of enterences, thresholds, fountains and common law, name January came from his name and in Roman Pantheon his role was being the mediator between young and old people, and barbaric and civilized communities... Don't know if that's all true, soo feel free to check, and if it's wrong, please tell me too :)

Guys, no need to freak..........I was talking to her when she finished and I think almost right after she finished she was already starting to think of the exact plot. She had one in her head but kind of vague. But don't quote me on this.

Losthero5 I am almost positivly sure that's what happened or some way some how she did it HP style. Like she a ball to be like the little game they play(I'm sorry for my incorrect facts, I have never read the book.....But I plan on it soon!)and hit it while pretending to be flying on the broom stick and made it land on the period. :) hahahahha that would be funny!

But 11 chapters, that will only take us to Febuary. I don't think that that will even take us to the Kane Chronical opening. You should really make a chapter realeased every four weeks, that it will take us to the Son of Neptune.

Amazing. 229 pages, and I can't wait to read the rest. You honestly could be a writer, if you have an original idea (which I am sure you do have) that people would like. And what, you are only in middle school- high school? Actually I don't know what type of school you are in. Anyway, Congratulations, and to all a happy new year.

People, would you kindly delete ALL of your spam? Spamming is like wearing your shoes in a house. You only do it if you have permission. Go make another forum about who would win in a battle between Jason and Percy. I would join the conversation.

Great Job Hecate, and peoples, she does not have to write more because she FINISHED THE FREAKING BOOK. She wrote 27 chapters, and only has published 16. Geddit?

Anyway, great job Hecate, you are a talented writer, and please write another fanfic 10 months from now after the Son of Neptune comes out.

kinda like putting things on here that have nothing to do with what it is about...like how it is AMAZING!!!

I have the EXACT defination from Hecate on either page 21 or 22. I am thinking page 22. Everyonne look at that.

Spam is also saying you will not spam or spam is gone!! No need for it. We will know when it is gone.

Thank you Wisegirl for helping me. And telling them to delete it.

While it is not spamming, please don't say you guys can't wait for the next chapter. We know you can't because we can't either but there is no need to aunonce it to the world. You don't have to go back and delete it but just don't please do it again.


I may sound harsh, but guys please. We keep telling you. YOU say you won't but then you do. Just try and refrane from any spamming. If you fear it may be spamming then go personally tell Hecate. Post it on her wall. That way you don't risk Lightning, Wisegirl, Hecate, or me, Redhawks(call me Red/red/Katelynne(Katelynne if you really want.).Thanks) getting mad at you.

Any spam I see I will get after you. If it becomes repeated I will personally go to your wall and post something and private chat you to get you to stop. Not to call out anyone but I have done that to Greekrulez

14 hours here I think!!!

So this week instead oaf posting Son of Neptune I will post a sypnosis of the assignement my history teacher made me write for Christmas homework on the origins of just kidding.
No. But I'm appointing red as my second if she accepts it, because most of her posts reflect what I would post. So if she accepts, listen to red.
*Clarification of Janus From the research I've done, it seems to be Janus is an all-Roman god that for some reason is at Camp Half-Blood. Janus is like Apollo and Triton, keeps his name in both mythologies.
@redhawks 1) That is totally coincidental! If you want your parents' names in there, we'll talk. :P 2) Your doctor is freaking harsh! Owe... Can I use that for Karen? (foot-twisting)
@lightning - Your brother is so spontaneous its awesome! And I had to put the HP in it, forgive me, I had to...
And will you all decide whether I'm Rick Riordan or JK Rowling already? I'm having a major identity crisis :P
redhawks - Better then cocky, notice that's how a whole bunch of heroes died or caused mayhem (note; emotional rollercoasters may be called mayhem...)
@barogr - I understand, but I needed everything in one chapter about her. 115 pages to you, you still have a little over a hundred to go. Chapters to come are longer.
@Festus *nearly cant lift weight of 200 pages award* I need to make my award case bigger for all the ones you people are handing over.
@AnnabethC - Yeah, sorry but not in my current plans. I never really liked Luke *ducks fangirl-thrown tomatoes*
@party pony 1)She will probably be nothing alike in RR's version, so dont say that. she might end up being an immatur slacker... ouch... Its okay, I'll read it,go "what?" but RR will sell it to me. also, Dakota might be a guy. I was thinking about how Bobby is the only guy in the ennumeration, and some writters are making Dakota a boy, so I was wondering... eh... 2)I'm glad I managed to say true to Leo 3)Thank you, I'm very proud of my prophecies. 4) I'm guessing muses can have demigods, they're goddesses right? Never heard anything about them being eternal virgins like Artemis or whateve rother reason there is. 5) Not really. I have books and parents at handy and background info of shtuff (not a typo) I researched at the school library. 6) Wait and see (for the dream, the Kako Xorki, and the memory will never be officially said but someone good at puzzles will be able to piece it together I think)
@Greekrules - Yes Jason has another quest
@red - You are absolutely right.
@barogr - You're righ if my research was worth anything
@RomanCRITIC- that's awesome! I just bought myself an english-latin dictionary with a chapters gift card. My friends are even mor epuzzled about me then usual, but once I tell them I finished the last Hunger Games book in a little more then 12 hours it would've cut to that anyways, so really...
@red - Yes I did. I was talking to red and panicking because I couldn't figure out with which scene to end the book. She's very good at enduring panicking people.
@child of aeolus - You'll love how I planned out his remembering.
@lightning - Yes I am flippin serious! And I have 4 other projects going on to keep me from floating pointlessly. I'm a busy person.
@blackjack - Hey! Welcome to the spot! Here's your muffin basket, and to everyone else new, come get yours! And thank you!
@losthero - Umm... I did really chear, but there was no finger-hovering, I'd already decided on the sequel's events, so really...
@red - Do quote red. And if you are reffering to QUIDITCH its either the golden winged ball, the Snitch, the big red one, the Quaffle, or the ones that freak out of control, Bludgers I think they are called in english... And no, my snitch was not included (I got one for Christmas).
@NicoDiAngelo- Calm down!!!! Its a fanfic, there might not be a grain of truth in it!
@wisegirl97 - You have no idea how touching that is. Yes, some decisions I have made for this fic are killing me inside and some scenes I'm itching to write, but I do think you will enjoy it. And you created a fanpop account to comment on my shtuff? Holly... Someone told me about that but I didn't think it was actually true...
*CLARIFICATION - I have 230 pages (one of them is random) of this saved up on my faihtful little USB key, which I'm considering naming R2. I have finished typing it, because I do not write as I go, but have chapters prepared in advance. Yes I am still making you wait, but I might start posting in twos so its all out before the book is.
@febez - Aww, thanks! That's really nice to hear...
@UnoriginalName - That would drive me as well as everybody else here insane! I have a sequel and threequel (word?) possibly that I need all out before October, so dont worry, it'll get you to October at least. (I think...)
@Greekrule - Do you mean Connor and Travis Stoll?
@unoriginal name - *mutters she's already 4 chapters and
@- Angle97 - Okay, well the shooting star thing will be revealed in one of Add's last chapters. RR has his own ideas and wont take in mine (if he doesI get my name printed on the book, he he :D) and probably gets an overload of ideas anyways, wont get to mine until the book is off to the editors. Someone has already said that they will link this from RR's twitter at some point (not sure if he did).

TO WHOEVER ASKED- Im in a Francophone school that goes from seventh to ninth grade

And you know what else I advertise for, don't yah?
The....... FAN FICTION AWARDS!!!!!!!!!!
I made it to the top 10 best HoO , we are voting who is going to the final 5, if you think I, or any other writter, deserves a spot there click on this link (it says top 10, buts its top 5): link
And I am leading (?)favorite writter of 2010 with half the votes!!!! If you want your voice ehard, click on this link: link
And thank you so very much for the detailed comments. I had no idea Dakota's chapters would reak chaos on everyone at that extent! I did it on purpose to make it sad and touching, but Oh my gosh... If I could get that everytime I would be so thankfull...
And the comments about how this story isn't just what the writter want to hear, that's absolutely magnificent to get as well...
And to everyone who wants a book published... I've got it. The manuscript at least. I am revising, adding, making my main younger, but I am hopping before the end of 2011 that this manuscript will have passed in the hand of a publisher and hopefully he likes it... If he does, you will 1) Hear excited screaming no matter where you live once I'm alone so nobody thinks I belong in a mental hospital. and 2) Make sure you can all recognise it.

Jason Grace
December 26th: the Underworld
Last time I’ll ever be in that place (hopefully)

Nico got us in the judgement tent.
I was even surer I never wanted to get in here.
It looked like a cave. From the outside it was a tent- no different than the ones we held praetor meetings in, except completely black. I guess that’s where Caleb got that idea from. But inside it was a decked out cave. The rocks and ceilings were solid rock, and stalagmites and stalactites were present. But that was the part of the place where the damned sit, I reckoned. Because where the 3 judges sat… It was SO SWEET.
The floor went from black rock to bejewelled tiles. The table was carved out of a block of solid gold, and the 3 guys sitting there looked pretty comfy on different puffy chairs. They had fruity brinks or bottled water sitting in front of them. The walls were made out of gold, engraved with scenes of what I guessed was Elysium. It looked awesome, a labyrinth of big mansions and parties.
One of them, I was sure was William Shakespeare. I’d heard Caleb talking to Reyna about him, and how he was too soft on the damned, and he was the only guy there wearing clothing that could’ve gone with it. He had a brown beard and he wore old blue clothes.
The second looked so much like Cal I thought maybe the boread wasn’t that immortal. But then I realised his face wasn’t as messed up- it still wasn’t pretty- and his hair was shorter. He wore a NHL jersey and skates (I wondered how great that went for him) and he had a stick pressed on a wall besides him. Speaking of which, I was pretty sure the stick and skate blades were made of Imperial gold. I really wanted to go check that out, but I didn’t. I stayed next to Nico figuring he was our ticket out of hell.
The last one was ripped like heck. He was in his late twenties, early thirties, wore Greek armour on top of his chiton (which is the Greek toga) and his hands were huge. He had shoulder-length brown hair, and a beard nearly as long. His eyebrows were thickening, but his electric blue eyes were his main feature. It didn’t take 20 questions or 3 guesses to figure out who he was, and it was pretty obvious, even if his sword wasn’t laid down in front of him.
Karen was scared to death. First week as a demigod and we through her in the underworld. I felt bad about dragging her into this, but it was too late to turn back. I gave her hand a quick squeeze before drawing my gladus. It was the same rule everywhere: you tend to listen to guys with swords more.
Karen turned to look up at me in the eyes. I mouthed the words all right.
-Key, who’s next? The hockey jock said.
-Actually, Rocket, I believe we have an intermission. Shakespeare said.
-This will only last a second, promise. We only need to talk to Heracles. Nico said. Hercules got up and strolled towards us.
Oh dear gods. I thought.
When Kota and I were still little kids we used to daydream about being as strong as Hercules, about killing the monsters he did. We used to think of this guy like he was a god! And now… Holly Styx, he was standing right there. I tried to think about how excited she’d be if she were here. And then I realised this was my second quest without Kota and Bobby, which just seemed so weird…
-How can I be of assistance young cousin? Hercules asked.
-This is Jason Grace.
-Thalia’s brother? He asked surprised.
-Um… He’s a son of Jupiter, but same mom, yeah. And this is Karen Mallock, daughter of Kratos.
-Ah, the strength god… When you grow older I’ll have to try my luck at sword-fighting you. Karen’s eyes were wide as drachmas.
-Sure. Karen said. But even her muscled arms seemed small and week compared to Hercules. Dang I must’ve looked week.
-With what the underworld is looking like, I might be able to be of your world for that. But no matter, how may I help?
Nico gave me a “talk to your brother” look and I though “ah Styx he is my brother”. The strongest greatest known Greek hero (thank you Disney) ever was my brother.

And I bet it wasn’t just Kota and I, he was probably the model for any small demigod.
And then I remembered something my sister had told me. About the girl she was succeeding. And my excitation went down. But I kept talking.
-You fought with the gods during the first giant war, didn’t you?
-You fought with the gods during the first giant war, didn’t you?
-Yes.
-Then did Ju- Zeus, ever tell you where he got the herbs the giants used? Hercules looked me in the eyes.
-Yes. A field, far from Olympus. More at the North I think. I cannot quite remember the name-
-See, that’s kind of the point.
-But I remember where it is in the twenty-first century.
-Where?
-In British Columbia. Canada. A place called Stanley Park.
-No way! Karen gasped.
-What, you’ve been there?
-Jason- if I’m not on set or at school; I practically live there! The trees are enormous; I imagine that’s where they are?
-Correct. Spread amongst the trees. Hecate put a spell on it- to prevent them from sprouting everywhere. They only grow on loopholes of her magic, and they are only there for a few minutes.
-When would that be?
-The last minute of a year, or the whole during of a council.
-Damn, specific, much? Nico asked.
-Quite.
A woman got thrust in the room, wearing an orange jumpsuit and begging.
-Please, please I beg of you-
Hercules sighed.
-I must get back.
-We understand, thank you for your time. I said. My voice must’ve sounded bitter.
-Is something wrong, Jason Grace?
-Yeah, actually. You’re the guy who ruined my sister’s friend’s life. Zoë Nightshade. You got her to help you get a Hesperides apple which got her kicked out of her family, and you didn’t mention her, ever. That’s what’s wrong. I said, starring the guy who’d been my idol in the face. Karen frowned.
-We all make mistakes Jason Grace. But she found a new life, did she not? I was young and foolish.
-You could still have made it right, like you did so many times for entire nations. Or were you too chicken to ever admit you did something wrong? Hercules’ jaw was shut so tight I thought he’d break a tooth off.
-Everything is right for her now. She is in Elysium. And if you will excuse me, I need to try and make things right for that woman over there. The only reason I’m here, actually, make sure some people get it right.
The woman behind him was sobbing. He took his seat next to the hockey player, number 9. Maybe there was a third face to Hercules. Never two without 3, I guess…
-Common, we know where to go, and I don’t want to see this. Karen said, tugging at my wrist for me to follow her and Nico out as the council decided whether or not to force that woman to break slates of marble in two with her head for eternity or not.
Hecate was waiting for us a distance from the door. She held her stick in front of her with both hands.
-Nico, why’d she call you Kako Xorki? Nico smirked.
-It means wicked spell in Greek. It’s her pet name for me. It’s actually a miracle she likes me, she’s very close to she-who-turns-me-in-dandelions. He said.
-Do you have a destination you would like to go to? Hecate said.
-Stanley park, British Columbia. Karen said.
-Alright then. Kako Xorki, I imagine you will be returning to camp?
-Yeah, Annabeth would kill me if I didn’t. Nico said.
-That’s not the way I’d enjoy your visit. Hecate said.
-Thank you, that makes 2 of the people down here. He grumbled.
-Bye Jason, bye Karen. Good luck. He said. Then Hecate waved her staff and he vanished.
-Well then, any particular place in Stanley Park you’d like to be at? Hecate asked.
-Umm… In the forest. Karen said.
-Alright then. She raised your hand.
-Wait! I said. Hecate’s hand froze mid-air.
-Do you know if Hazel’s okay? I asked. She turned into Trivia.
-Hazel is doing fine, but she is in great peril. Trivia said.
-Is she on a quest? The river Styx started to bubble.
-I cannot tell you.
-I’m her friend. I begged.
-I know, Jason Grace, believe me I know, but I just can’t. Have you not learn that everyone has a superior, much like Lupa the she-wolf is yours? I am on probation from mine. She said. She took the rope at her waist off and handed it to Karen.
-This will be useful. It’s all the help I can give you, good luck. And she waved her hand and we weren’t in the underworld.
The trees were enormous. Wider than tires and higher then I’d thought trees could get. They were pretty far from each other, but the forest seemed to stretch on forever.
-Holly…
-Yeah. Karen said, her eyes illuminated by an ear-to-ear smile.
-Okay, we’re here until New Year. That’s 4 days. I said.
-I have an aunt that lives close bye. If it’s not too dangerous for both of us to stay there…
-I don’t know about you, but my scent is stronger than nearly anybody’s.
-We should stay here then. It never was a great place anyways. When me and mom stayed there there’d always be something bad.
-Then your aunt’s place is not a good demigod place, especially with me around. Your scent probably isn’t too bad, but my dad is one of the big-3, and he’s the better-known one too, which makes me a monster beacon.
-Pardon, monster bacon?
-That’s not what I said, but if I don’t watch out yes. I smiled.
-So we just hang out in the woods. Karen suggested.
-Sounds good.
We found a cave, its opening straight on its roof, which was odd, but at least it was practically human-free. And I doubt they couldn’t actually, since as far as I knew I was the only one who could fly. Thalia tried once, the hunters stopped by for a few hours on Christmas day before darting off. It epically failed. Not sure why, though. There was already a cave so we decided to make camp and wait there.
I’d brought along the binder Annabeth had given me and I read the myth again, the familiar Latin words were comforting.
-When did you learn to speak Latin? Karen asked. I answered in Latin by accident. Her face was so good, I tried not to laugh.
-I was two. I answered in English.
-Bilingual at age 2, not bad. Karen said.
-Yeah I guess. At the city you pick up Latin fast. I said.
-The City? What City, New York?
-No, not New York. You wouldn’t know about it.
-Then tell me. You can read Latin too, can’t you? How do the letters not mess up your eyes, I can barely read a script line! Karen said. Wait, are you even dyslexic?
-Dyslexia is a trait of… Of Greek demigods. I said, figuring I couldn’t keep it away from her.
-Greek? What other type of demigod is there?
-Roman. There are Roman gods. I said.
And then I told her about the city, about Juno switching me and Percy, about legions, consuls, praetors, about everything I remembered about my friends. Except for Reyna. I hadn’t told anybody much about her yet.
-Wait, if I were at your camp, I’d have 2 moms? Karen asked when I was done.
-No, I think Strenua and Kratos are 2 different immortals completely. I said.
-Good, that would be messed up. But nobody knew?
-Nobody but the gods and Chiron.
-Seriously?
-If it wasn’t seriously, I wouldn’t be here; I would be back with my legion and friends. I said.
-You wouldn’t know Leo and Piper wouldn’t be your girlfriend?
-She isn’t really my girlfriend! I said a little defensively. Never mind. No, I wouldn’t, I wouldn’t even know you.
-Wow, that would be horrible, if you’d never met Thalia. What was that thing about the girl she was succeeding, back with Hercules? I hesitated telling her Zoë Nightshade’s story. Hercules had been my idol, and I remember how that crashed when Thalia told me.
-Nothing. I said. Karen wasn’t dumb, she knew I was lying, but she let it pass. I went back to reading. After a while I lost it and put the binder back in my backpack.
You learned to calm down at the City, even with ADHD. You had to control yourself all the time back there. I wasn’t particularly good at it, but I couldn’t lose what little of it I had. So I took the book back out and read the myth again.
Here and there Annabeth had written little footnotes, why on the Latin copy, I wasn’t sure, but she had. Above a passage about Mimas, a giant slain by Hephaestus. In red ink she’d written “Leo?” All her little footnotes reminded me of Bobby, and then I remembered they were siblings. Paris, Malcolm, Socrate: they probably did the same thing too, even though they were from different camps. This was going to get so messed up. Having to figure out who’s where. Percy and I couldn’t be the only one lost, and what if some or the craftsmen or farmers at the City decided to go to Camp? It was definitely less harsh for them there, and it would be a way to make distance from your enemies, because we were going to get mixed. And that was when it was going to get messed up.

And what the heck, happy New Years!

To all the girls and leaders I ever went to girl guides with. Racoons.
18
Add
December 27th
Not too far from sacred land
Forest King
-Damn it! Bobby said. Reyna walked over and swore. It was early morning, the 27th of December.
-What’s wrong? Hazel asked, trying to tame the fire with her wand.
-All of the food is missing! Reyna said.
-What? I walked over and glanced at the bag where we’d emptied all the food. It was absolutely empty.
-Ah, Styx…
-I blame racoons. Hazel said.
-What did racoons ever do to you?
-Well… nothing. But you try being a racoon for a week; you won’t like them loads afterwards either. She said, creeping up behind us.
-Well… nothing. But you try being a racoon for a week; you won’t like them loads afterwards either. She said, creeping up behind us.
I figured this was like the Aqua-bats, and I just didn’t want to know.
-I don’t think this would be raccoons. The bag wasn’t even opened; I put an alarm chip on it.
-Alarm chip? I asked.
-I had a lot of time a few days ago, shoot me. He shrugged.
-Magic? Reyna said.
-I don’t know. Hazel? Hazel lifted her wand up in the sky, pointed straight up. A shockwave rippled the air and small, silvery indistinct silhouettes appeared everywhere where she’d performed magic, one seemingly different right above the bag. They were only there for a few seconds.
-Ooh, unpronounced, nearly undetectable teleportation spell. Whoever did this is good. It takes so much energy to do that, most of us pass out. For a week.
-Does this have something to do with racoons?
-None of your sisters or brothers can do it? I asked.
-Nah, unless Jazzy’s gotten way better since she left. Hazel shrugged.
-So a god?
-Some immortal life form, yeah.
-So they stay silent when we need help, but if they want to steal from us that’s okay? Reyna asked, her expression angry.
-What do you mean “stay silent”?
-Add, it’s been a month since anyone has heard anything from a god, other than Lupa, and surprisingly Romma. Reyna said.
-Why?
-We have no idea. Reyna said.
-And then you popped up. And Vesta speaks to you.
-My brain just went kaput, this is getting more confusing by the second. Hazel said.
-No, it makes sense. The gods go silent and then Vesta and Juno switch Add and Jason. They…
-Want something. Reyna said.
-From both places. I finished.
-Oh Gods… Hazel said.
-What? Does it have to do with the prophecy? We know 3 children of the elder gods, 4 if you count Add’s friend.
-Bobby, you believe in that? Reyna asked.
-Yes.
-Thank you! I said.
-But it’s never happening. Hazel said.
-It has! I said.
-Will.
-No. It never will. There is no way Jason will get hurt, nor Caleb, nor Add! Reyna said. The subject died out, this was obviously hitting too close to home.
-Hey guys, look over there. Hazel said breaking the silence. Something in the bush was moving. We froze. It could be a dog, a wolf or a hellhound.
-What is it? Reyna whispered.
-No idea. I answered back. Bobby slowly knelt and picked up a rock. He threw it towards the moving thing and out sprang a lynx. His eyes were vertical, and glowed amber and his coat was grey, spotted black. We all relaxed except for Hazel. Just a forest animal.
-Hazel are you okay?
-That’s a Florida bobcat. She said.
-If it’s a Florida bobcat, what the heck is it doing..? I was interrupted by the apparition of 2 more lynxes.
-These are the bobcats we’re supposed to find here. Hazel said.
-Then what about the first? Bobby asked.
-I have no idea. Hazel said. More lynxes appeared. The horses grew nervous.
Master, run! Pacific pleaded.
-Pacific, what do you mean?
This is more than it appears, run! Run for your life!
I cut the ropes tying the horses to a tree. They all galloped away from the tree, and away from the lynx, but they stayed in the clearing.
More lynx.
-Lynx don’t travel in pack, this is wrong. Hazel said through gritted teeth. The lynx stayed there, and I realised more of them were circling us. There was no way out unless we pushed them; and that sense of something creepy happening turned into a sense of imminent danger. I took out Riptide, to discover Reyna’d had her spear in her hand for ages. The extra length would be useful to stay away from the nasty teeth they were starting to show.
-I don’t like this. Reyna said. A lynx snapped at her and she jerked her spear forwards to make it back away. Bobby and Hazel were armed as well, and we rounded up as the horses got circled as well.
-Pacific! Lead them far away from here! I yelled. Pacific neighed, understanding I had no desire to argue with her and she led Airborne, Empire and Independence away. The lynx let them pass.
-What do they want? They want something, lynx don’t just attack especially not in daylight, they want something… Hazel kept muttering as Bobby, Reyna and I started waving our swords to keep the beasts away. And then she became as pale as a sheet.
-Excellent deduction daughter of Trivia. A voice said. We froze and an enormous lynx advanced through the others. Then he rose on two legs and the lynx’s pelt pealed off, revealing a man. He had pointy ears higher then average, with the little black tip like a lynx. He wore a toga made of a patchwork of lynx skins, tied around his waist by a thick rope. He had mean amber eyes, at an angle like the lynx he’d incarned and what we saw of his skin was spotted. His nose was triangular and his teeth pointy, and he held a long staff, which was more of a stick with a huge knot at the top.
Who are you? Reyna asked harshly. She moved back and pointed her spear at lynx-man and Bobby and I immediately covered her from the lynx. He made a weird noise between a hoot and a bark and the lynx retreated.
-I am Lyncus. He said. The look in Reyna’s eyes said “I don’t care who you are as long as I’m either allowed to gut you or you’ll go away”. But hazel and Bobby had terrified looks in their eyes and I felt a presence in my head, only confirmed when a voice said;
He is the king; he wanted to kill a messager of Demeter, to take credit for the wisdom on agriculture my sister had told him to spread what she had taught him. Demeter intervened and turned him into a lynx.
The voice was Hestia’s, and I couldn’t understand why she’d tell me a myth that by their looks, my friends knew, but not my name. But now was not the time to ask.
-You tried to murder a man who enriched your kingdom by his knowledge. Was the first thing I said.
-If you insist on passing pleasantries, son of the Sea.
-I try to hang with people who don’t kill. I said.
-Then you are witt a group of people you must’ve tried to avoid. Lyncus smiled.
-Shut it. Hazel hissed.
-Let it be so. An image is worth a thousand words, anyways, I say. The king tapped his staff to the ground and I wasn’t in the forest anymore.
the background stood an enormous temple in black stone, and they were standing on a mountain fighting. Further away, a few legions were fighting against monsters. But the 7 there were fighting some real meanies. Cyclops. Huge Cyclops. The first figure I recognised was Reyna. She wore only a chest plate and a helmet. She slashed one on the leg and kicked it square in the chest. She ran after it as it stumbled down the mountain side, jumping from one rock perch to another. The Cyclops finally stopped falling. Reyna kicked it in the side. It looked pretty beat down, and it opened its eye. Calf brown. My stomach twisted in a knot.
-Have… Pity. He croaked. She recognised that voice.
-Don’t you try your dirty Cyclops tricks on me! Reyna yelled. And with that she kicked the Cyclopes and it rolled off the mountain into the sea. Reyna’s eyes scared me. She was out for blood, and the Cyclops who’d looked so much like my brother, whose blood tainted the hem of her jeans, was just one out of Zeus-knows how many others, and the stain was just one out of possibly every pair of jeans she owned. Reyna didn’t even pause to watch him go through the surface of the water or hear his scream; she took off again, looking for more blood.
I was seeing a small girl with brown curls from the back. Sparks flew from her hands and I saw a tree catch on fire and some ground collapse. Then I heard an agonising scream, of someone being hurt.
Bobby was crouched in a crevice in the mountain top and Jason Grace besides him. Jason made a hand gesture and Bobby slashed a rope with a dagger. Then the mountain side exploding, rubble burying an enemy legion of half-bloods, about 20 of them.
Bobby and Jason high-fived, glad of their success before running off, swords drawn, to their next targets...
And back in the forest.
-That was a war Lyncus. Wouldn’t know one if it hit you in the face, I bet you’ve never fought an honourable one. Reyna spat out.
-Watch your tongue daughter of Bellona, there is plenty more where that came from. Do you believe me son of Neptune?
Son of Neptune, why did that title bug me?
-Why are you here? You are not here to talk to us, just get it over with. I said.
-My mistress is in need of one of you. And that one she will get. He smiled a cruel smile that made me go “uh oh” and he made more of the odd lynx calls. The pack jumped.
Reyna was an ace at battle. She swung her spear, stabbing through lynxes, 2 at a time and taking it back without so much as a glitch before killing more. Bobby swung his sword using techniques so complicated I wasn’t sure where he’d learned to pull them off. And Hazel, with a Pilum that had probably been her wand instants ago, hit the beasts as far away as she could, and I kind of doubted that the Pilum wasn’t magic, because some of them were soaring right above the treetops.
I swung my sword, taking out 3 to 5 at a time, but the ones we killed kept rising and getting back in the fight.
-Stupid bobcat, stay dead! Someone yelled.
-Ho! Hazel! Bobby yelled. But that took away his concentration and he fell, pushing against my back. My back tingled. I took him by the shoulder and Hazel’s eyes widened like she’d gotten a divine inspiration too. She wacked the nearest lynxes, spun her Pilum like a walking band’s leader. It turned back into her wand. She pointed it at the animals in front of her.
-Apparet Ursa! She yelled. And there was a light so bright my eyes automatically closed and then the sound of a tree falling, people yelling and my eyes shot back open.
3 trees had fallen down, roots sticking up, dirt still clinging on to them. I was still grasping Bobby by the shoulder, but Lyncus and his beasts were nowhere to be seen. I was going to ask what had happened but Reyna beat me to it.
-What the Pluto happened? Hazel, her teeth anchored into her lips knelt down and picked up the barrette before putting it back in her hair. Reyna grabbed my shoulder.
-What did you see? Then she saw Bobby.
-Bobby’s hurt! I said. He had a gash running across his lower stomach, like claws.
-Ah Styx, Bobby you still with us?
-Depends- are you all still in a forest?
-Yes he is. I said, lying him down. His face was twisted with pain.
-I think that was Lyncus himself. Hazel said kneeling down. She pulled Bobby’s shirt up just enough to see the gash.
-Is that bad?
-Well, I doubt Lyncus has rabies.
-Then good.
-I never said he didn’t. Your head feeling okay Bobby. Bobby?
-He fainted. Reyna said.
-I’ll take that as his head is pretty bad. Add, check in my bag, there’s a jar shaped like an owl, you’ll know it when you see it. Hazel said, putting a hand on his forehead. I got up and rummaged through her bag. A sweater, a folded up blanket, a few other things; and the bottle. I got it and gave it to Hazel. She took off the top.
-Reyna, pin him. Hazel requested. Reyna did, and Hazel tipped it over, a few drops of the liquid dripping down. Bobby’s wound started smoking and he stirred in his state of unconsciousness, fighting against Reyna, who managed to hold him down well enough.
-He’ll be like that for the next few minutes. Might be a while before he’s conscious again.
-Why? It’s just a scratch, isn’t it?
-Yeah, but this is Lyncus. He’s way worst then a lynx and I think he poisoned Bobby through the wound.
-Wait, he wanted to kill who again?
-Triptolemus.
-Yeah, but Triptolemus was out to spread the word about agriculture, right?
-Right.
-And she told him because he was a prince who gave her shelter when she was looking for Persephone. So what the hell is he doing alive? That’s Ancient, and Lyncus was mortal! I said. Hazel’s look said she already knew, and I wasn’t all sure if Reyna cared.
-I don’t know. It… It sounds like the prophecy of the seven. You know, the doors of death? It doesn’t matter right now. I think we should give him an hour before we move.
-Might as well get the horses. I said.
-I’ll come with you. Reyna should stay here in case he starts twitching again.
-I have no idea how to treat an animal wound! Reyna said.
-It’s like a sword slash, besides, I’ve done everything already. If he starts twitching just hold him down.
-Great. Reyna said. As Hazel and I headed into the woods, she sat down besides Bobby and started whipping the lynx blood off her spear tip with a dirty rag.
We didn’t talk. Hazel was still very pale, looking beat down like she’d just seen a ghost who’d reminded her of the worst moment of her life, and I wasn’t sure to make out of all I’d seen.
Reyna had killed a Cyclops. No second thought, no regret, she just had. He’d begged of her, he was already down; no way he could’ve caused any more damage. And Bobby with his bomb- as rocks and rumble of the mountaintop buried half-bloods alive. They weren’t like Cyclops, they died for good. There was no second chance, unless you were Lyncus apparently. And just like that, all gone. Then Hazel, using her magic as a mean of destruction. I’d heard screaming, people hurt, I’d seen ground collapse and trees fall. Cold-blooded murders. This made the people on this quest with me, the quest to save, cold-blooded murderers.
And I didn’t know which one scared me more. Reyna, who’d been raised having to fight fire with fire, or just get burned, Bobby, who was the quiet, witty, scientific guy who was using what he knew to hurt, scratch that, kill. But I think it was Hazel. The girl who loved animals, the one who’d given me my tour of the City and saved me from Reyna’s spear on my first day... She’d caused so much chaos all to herself that day… Reyna you could tell straight away she’d been in fights. Bobby, he was a smart guy from the moment you met him. But Hazel- Hazel I’d underestimated. I’d never seen that from her, and something –maybe the killer instincts Gwen’d talked about- made me think she could do a lot worse…
We found the horses. They stood, as if waiting for us.
-Here we go. I said to try and diffuse the tension. It diffused nothing.
We (I) assured the horses that Lyncus and his minions were long gone from camp, and after Hazel’s promise of sugar cubes, they followed us back.
Bobby was still shaking like he was having a seizure, and Reyna was pinning him down to the forest floor.
-This is getting really tiresome. Reyna said.
-Here. I said. I used the spare rope the horses had been tied with and tied Bobby’s wrists and ankles to two heavy logs. Then I remembered I’d dropped Riptide and turned around.
-Reyna, where’s Riptide? I asked. She frowned.
-Riptide? I don’t know, didn’t touch it. She said.
-But I left it here…
returned to my pocket.
-Simple returning spell always goes back to the owner’s pocket. Hazel said, sounding depressed.
-Nobody tell Gwen, this could be fun. I said.
-I second that. It’ll teach her to stay away from my swords.
-Swords?
-Yeah, I collect sword. Samurai, Greek, Chinese, Persian, French, Roman. It’s sword thief paradise. Reyna said. Awkward silence.
-So you summoned a bear? I asked Hazel. Hazel nodded. Stupidest question ever.
-Just out of interest, why a bear?
-Bears are one of the only animals that will go for an adult lynx in the wild.
-Thank gods for animal trivia. Reyna said.
-Yeah. Add, what did you see? Hazel asked pathetically. I looked at both of them. How they knew I’d seen something, no clue, but they did, and I’d be an idiot to lie to them. So I told them, but I left out the part about Hazel. When I finished Hazel seemed to calm down. Then I realised she’d been scared. Scared of what I’d seen… But why?
Reyna looked at me her eyes serious.
-Add. You need to know this, and you won’t like it, but you need to know it. Those things, they’re monsters. Monsters kill half-bloods. Half-Bloods kill monsters. It’s just how things go. And when a monster dies, it goes to hell, and it comes back fully reformed ready to kill some more. When a half-blood dies, he dies. There’s no coming back, no undo, it’s the biggest aspect of our mortal parents we inherit. If you don’t kill the monster, the monster kills you.
-But he was down, Reyna! He was down, and you just kicked him off the cliff.
-It was a merciful action. If I didn’t kill it, it would just stay there in pain and die in the end anyways. If I would really be a senceless killer that's how I would've left him, that's how my brothers did it, it wasn't a cold-blooded murder! Reyna said, jumping to her feet.
-Yeah, but not all monsters are bad!
-This one was.
-That one was my brother! Cyclops are children of Poseidon, I might’ve known him! I said.
-And I might’ve gotten killed! Add, we don’t choose to kill! We don’t chose to be harsh, or train so tightly, or be so harsh with the soldiers under our command! We need to do it, or we die!
-Your mother is goddess of war, you’d do it anyway! I said.
-Yeah, maybe I would. But I do my job, Add. I stay alive. And if you want to do yours, just shut up. She snapped. I didn’t back down from my point.
-My brother’s name is Tyson. He’s 4 years old, maybe 5 for all I can remember, and he’s a Cyclopes. I know he sided with us in fights. I said.
-Did you ever think maybe you were siding with the wrong side?
-Reyna! Hazel said. My stomach felt hollow. Reyna calmed down.
-I’m sorry Add, I didn’t mean it. She said.
-Sure you didn’t. I said.
-Add, seriously I…
Don’t you think that I’m under a lot of stress too? I’m lost. I have a friends waiting for me in New York. Fellow soldiers at Camp Half-Blood. I can’t remember their names; I can’t remember who we fought. I can’t remember where my weak spot is and my nerves are not right as long as we’re in the state of California. I’m scared to death. And yeah, I’ve thought about that. I’ve thought maybe I was sent as an infiltrator, and I thought about how I’d pull off the scam of not telling them anything that would backfire against the city. Don’t tell me I haven’t thought of it, because I have. I said. Reyna, head high nodded her head, in a gesture that clearly asked for forgiveness. I nodded back. It wasn’t any good fighting amongst each other.
-Hazel, when can we move Bobby?
-Ugh, 5 more minutes. Bobby grumbled in his sleep.
-I think now. He’s stopped twitching, but it’ll be harder, he’ll be uncouncient or, at the best if he wakes up, weak, for the rest of the day.
-Lyncus will come back, we might as well move.
-I’ll take him on my Pegasus. Hazel nodded.
Half an hour later, we were moving again. It was about mid day and we still weren’t near the impossible task.
Pacific and Airborne were travelling by foot, alongside with Independence. Bobby was propped up in front of Hazel, who was keeping him from falling. Lyncus had poisoned him good. Then Hazel and Reyna stopped, and so did I.
-What’s wrong?
-Add, can’t you feel it? Hazel asked.
-Feel what?
-In the pit of your stomach, the back of your head..? Reyna said.
-I feel imminent doom.
-Your instincts are screwed. Hazel said.
-We’re here. Reyna said. She dismounted.
-That rock over there? It’s the border. Past it, sacred lands.
-Okay. I felt nervous. Sacred land, sacred land. Danger, danger. Gwen had told me my best bet were my instincts. Which probably meant I would die painfully.
-Common, we can’t stop now. Hazel said. Reyna observed the woods with an odd eye.
-There’s been battle here. I didn’t want to believe it, but even I can’t deny something’s happened at the Wolf house. She said.
-We know, we saw Jason fighting Porphyrion, remember?
-This is different, there was something more. She said. She looked at the woods like she saw something we couldn’t, before mounting Independence.
-It doesn’t matter, we’ll figure it out. Yah! She said. She and Independence ran past the rock as if before she could change her mind.
-You ready Add? Hazel said.
-No.
-Rey’s right. Something happened here. Something more then what Caro’s IM showed us. Hazel said looking troubled.
-I better go before I change my mind. She said. Airborne started galloping right on cue, Pacific and I right behind them.
Nothing happened. No heat wave, no godly light, nothing. Just me swearing at myself internally for the stupid thing I’d just done.
-Yes, well, we can’t deny the past, can we? A voice said. I turned around.
The woman standing there wore a toga, coloured beige. Her brown hair was pinned up and a rebellious streak covered part of one of her aqua blue eyes. Her eyes were huge, and I had trouble meeting them. Her cheeks were rosy, her skin had a touch of sun. She wore simple sandals and an hourglass hung around her neck on a bronze chain.
-Umm, hello? Hazel said.
-Hello. The woman said. Her voice sounded like a distant echo of something said in the past.
-Who are you? Reyna said, her hand on the hilt of her gladus.
-I am Postverta, goddess of the past, Reyna Gayle. She closed her eyes and took a deep breath like she was doing yoga.
-Born on December 7th 1994, the youngest out of 4 children, always the lesser of them, the last after your brothers, always the least, the most vulnerable. You felt the hilt of a sword in your grasp first 6 years after birth and…
-How do you know that? Reyna asked. Postverta’s eyes shot open.
-Because it’s your past.
-Then do you know mine? I asked. She turned to look at me.
-Knowing and sharing are not the same thing. She smiled.
So not only nature spirits were cheap, but so were goddesses. Fantastic.
-Why are you here? We know all gods are forbidden to leave Olympus. Reyna said.
-How do you know I’m here right now, and that you’re not seeing a past form of mine? She said. We furrowed our eyebrows confused.
-Time, she said waving a hand making a smoky green hourglass appear, is a complicated matter. I’ve seen everything past. I’ve seen some things future. I and my sisters know more than any human, and perhaps god. For example, I know you were born feet-first son of Neptune, I preside over those births. I know what and where you all were. I know what monsters you’ve killed- Hazel paled- and I know what ghosts you have. I know which of you needs to learn to confront their pasts and embrace the future. Hazel jumped off her horse, wand pointing at Postverta’s head.
-I don’t need you. We don’t need you if your only purpose is to confuse the hell out of us. She said.
-I am a warner.
-You are useless. Hazel snapped. Postverta frowned, her eyes burning with rage.
-And so I am. She said. And she disappeared. Hazel’s knee buckled and she looked about ready to cry.
-Woe there Hazel, are you okay? Reyna said, hauling her back up.
-Yeah.
-Gwen’s the liar, you cannot lie. Reyna said. Hazel sat down at the base of a tree, hugging her knees to her chest.
-No. Not at all. She’s been haunting me since I’m 8. She said.
-Who? I dismounted.
-Postverta. The past. She said.
-Hazel, what do you mean? Reyna asked sitting down next to her.
-I… I can’t tell you. It would put you in danger. She said.
-If that’s it, we have nothing to lose. I said. Hazel didn’t even try to smile. She took a deep breath.
-Fine. I’ll tell you. I’ll tell you, but I’m not proud of it, and I might cry.

lol your little spelling mistakes just make this even better. and why did you post chapter 17 twice along with your replies 0_o? Oh yeah and guys, cool it with the comments will you? If it is unrelated to the story AT ALL make a new forum or, like red said (hey that rhymes!) put it up on the "so what do you think?" forum. I also made a "SoN comments" forum so that this wouldn't happen. THERE ARE 23 PAGES HERE AND 75% OF THEM ARE SPAM.You have a question? put it up on the forum. no one care about how many forum topics there are. But we do care about how many comments there are! You dont have to write "OMG THIS IS AWESOME" 10 times!(ok, thats not really my decision, it is Hecate's). If you understand then just don't reply and/or apologize. COMPRENDO? GOOD! Btw, awesome story and plot Hecate. I cant believe i didn't write that as a comment yet. FAIL
